A one-year-old Palestinian toddler was injured last night when Jewish settlers threw stones at a car he was in as it drove on a West Bank road, according to the Palestinian news agency WAFA.

Eyewitnesses told WAFA that settlers from the illegal Daniel settlement – built on expropriated Palestinian land – threw stones at Palestinian cars driving on a highway between Bethlehem and Hebron (Al-Khalil)  in the southern West Bank.

The toddler, Mahmoud Iyad Banat, was injured in the eye from glass after stones hit and broke a window of a car he was in, said the witnesses.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.

“Jewish settler violence should not be analyzed separately from the violence meted out by the Israeli army, but seen within the larger context of the violent Zionist ideology that governs Israeli society entirely,” wrote Palestinian author and editor of The Palestine Chronicle, Ramzy Baroud.

“Settler violence has long since become part of Palestinians’ daily life under occupation,” according to the Human Rights Group B’tselem. “Israeli security forces enable these actions, which result in Palestinian casualties – injuries and fatalities – as well as damage to land and property. In some cases, they even serve as an armed escort, or even join in the attacks”.

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.

  1. And here I was under the impression that only Palestinians threw stones and the rancid occupation is innocent of ALL crimes big and small. Pfft!

  2. Zionism just like Nazism is racist. The Zionist barbarian Ismael is by far out doing the Nazis. I Lived under both the Nazis an the Jewish communism and the Palestinians’ are brutalized as we were. Zionist Jews are garbage..

  3. Here is another neo-Nazi racist claiming to be the “Master Race.”

    “Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.”
    — Menachem Begin – Israeli Prime Minister 1977-1983
