Here is what really happened in Amona today.

Of all the tens of thousands of structures built in Israel without all required permits (the vast majority by Arabs in Jerusalem and the Negev), the state decided that nine houses on a hill adjacent to Ofra had to be destroyed -- now. The Yesha Council agreed to move the houses within one week to a different location. Olmert rejected the offer because he wanted a confrontation before elections. Every one of the Kadimah lackeys dutifully recited the Talking Points: rule of law, law-breaking settlers, bla bla bla. In short, Olmert thought some settler blood would help his campaign.

And blood there was. It happens that I was well represented at the event. One recipient of my DNA (ROMD1) was camped out at one of the approach points at 2:30 AM. He heard the police commander instructing his troops: "club them on the head, go straight for the head".

In the morning, the kids took up positions in Amona. Some stood on the sidelines shouting. Some were in the houses, some up on the roofs of the houses. The cops on horseback charged the people standing on the side without provocation. As they did so, they whacked at people with their batons. Dozens sustained head injuries as a result and needed to be hospitalized. MK Effie Eitam was knocked unconscious and MK Aryeh Eldad sustained a broken hand. After this the kids began throwing rocks at the cops.

ROMD2 was in the first house from which the protesters were evicted. The police and Border Patrol (MaGaV) came in with batons swinging. People were flung out of windows. ROMD2 was lucky and got whacked only in his legs. He is a volunteer in MDA and bandaged up a kid whose head was split open. Another kid, Yechiam Eyal, had his skull fractured and is now in Hadassah unconscious and on a respirator.

ROMD1 was on the roof of a different house. Despite reports to the contrary, the kids on the roof (at least the ones on his roof) didn't throw rocks at the cops and soldiers. They threw bulbs filled with paint in the direction of the windshield of the D9, the giant bulldozer used to crush houses. Yasamnikim (again anti-semitic Russian goyim, with a few Druze thrown in for variety) fired paint at them and they protected themselves with a door. The Yasamnikim were lifted up to the roof in the shovel of the D9 and proceeded to trample the kids under the door while beating any exposed limbs. ROMD1 was forcibly removed from the roof, together with his buddies, in the shovel of the D9.

Pretty soon, ROMD1 and ROMD2 will be drafted. This experience did wonders for their motivation.

What a pitiful post. The dying spasms of the fanatic Israeli right-wing extremists. Not to mention the blatant lies (Eitan was not "knocked unconscious"; the TV images CLEARLY showed rocks being thrown; etc.).

How much more blood will you shed before understanding the Jewish people are no longer with you? How much longer need we suffer until you step out of our lives and into the garbage dump of history?

Ben-thanks for the first-hand information.
Sharvul-I am waiting for you to make your contribution to solving the Arab/Israeli conflict by leaving Israel and going back to whereever you ancestors came from before they decided to become "settlers" and move to Eretz Israel. After all, "good Israelis" like yourself have already made the move, including Rabin's son, Ehud Barak's daughter, Fuad Ben-Eliezer's son, Olmert's son (maybe more than one), and many, many more. It you on the Left who are consigned to the dustbin of history. The Jewish people are with us, demography is going our way, and it scares the hell out of the Left who grabbed all the resources of the state under the phoney name of "socialism" and is sucking the blood of the Israeli taxpayer which is supporting leftist Israel radio and TV and many other institutions, not to mention all the monopolies and cartels who have been ripping us off for years.

Sharvul,
Who is the "we" in whose name you presume to speak? You seem to be suffering from an acute case of snobbery, probably the ill effect of a pampered childhood. Ramaz or Flatbush?

I'm just going with 'anonymous' here because my IPO currently is VERY location specific and I prefer to hold on to what little anonymity I still have (which in truth, really isn't much).

All I'd like to say here though is to you Ben:

Your blog really and truly is one of my favorite locations on the web and I recommend your page quite often. Your personal history, heart, mind and perspective (and most excellent writing ability) are truly valuable. Please do keep us posted.

Jews aren't with you. You've spat on the Jewish majority just because they don't agree with you. $14 Billion later and this is what they get.

Ben,

"We" is the majority of Israelis. You right-wing fanatics have always preferred to neglect the fact that MOST Israelis are simply not with you (and growing numbers even despise you). "We" believe that your preference of land over life is a madness, not unlike the one that seized other fanatical sects in Jewish history and wrought nothing but disaster. Of course, you disguise this willful ignorance with arguments about "tinokim shenishbu", in the political sense; you obviously know best what's good for "am Israel", right?

BTW, I have no idea where Ramaz is. I understand Flatbush is a neighbourhood in New York, predominantly "charedi"? Well, I'm sorry to shatter your pesudo-psychological observations about me (which incidentally reveal more about you than about me). I was born in Morocco and grew up in Holon, and I'm not "charedi".

And I was born on Krypton and grew up in Smallville. Isn't assimilation great?
