"Dozens of settlers from the illegal outpost of Esh Kodesh raided the Nablus village of Qusra, firing live ammunition into the air

"Hundreds of Palestinians gathered in the area to defend the village, throwing stones at the settlers until they retreated."

"No injuries were reported."

"An Israeli army spokeswoman said "there is an ongoing confrontation between Palestinian and Israeli civilians near Esh Kodesh. IDF soldiers have arrived at the scene and are using riot dispersal means."

"On Tuesday, dozens of settlers raided Qusra and uprooted more than 190 olive trees. Several residents of the village were assaulted, and homes and a tractor were also damaged in the raid."

Most of the settlers who've set up home on the illegally occupied territories are the dregs of Israeli society. The Palestinians despise them and see them for what they are: parasites and leeches. But (probably) most Israelis would happily ship them back to their rathole of origin, Russia, Ethiopia, Estonia and other countries where Jews have lived as outcasts for generations.

Israel is stuck with them now and their lack of intelligence and aggressiveness will be the undoing of the state that adopted them.

Only some. Israel has taken in Jews from Africa, Russia, Eastern Europe, the US, mainland Europe and Asia. A large proportion of Jews of Eastern European origin are as fundamentalist as their Islamic opposites.

Settlers are entitled to arm themselves and have no compunction about using guns in both defensive (rare, since their territories are well protected by the IDF) and offensive modes.

You would need quite a bit of capital to set up there, hardly dregs. You are off your head, I'm wondering why dont the Israelis F out all the Palistinians into Jordan. They have nobody to oppose them.

Nope. The settlements, and settlers, are subsidised by central government, and, by extension, the US. They're largely the lower tiers of Israeli society.

As for your suggestion about F'ing the Palestinians out . . .

And if a newspaper said settlers were attacked by palestinians and hundreds of settlers gathered to defend those settlers under attack and that dozens of palestinians uprooted olive trees, would you accept that as fact? Just asking because your link does not offer one shread of evidence. Lots of accusations, but not one shread of evidence to back up the story. Let's take a look at what you do say - "firing live ammunition into the air". Sounds like the celebrating of a palestinian wedding to me. Do you just accept that "hundreds of palestinians gathered in the area to protect the village, throwing stones at the settlers....."? What if the truth is that hundreds of palestinians were throwing stones at the settlers because they were settlers. How do you know "dozens of settlers raided Qusra and uprooted more than 190 olive trees." In the past there have been cases where palestinians uprooted olive trees so they could blame the settlers and use the lie as propaganda.

Myabe you are correct I always got the impression that a lot of the settler were ultras from America and the Orthodox Jewish Isreali community.

I'm just saying there is nothing stopping them politically to kicking the arabs out, maybe they are awaiting the destruction of Jordan itself so they can set up the new camp on the other side. All has to be done is spread some of the mayhem of Syria into Jordan.
