Israel to urge court: Drop Palestinian farmers' complaint against settler attacks

http://www.haaretz.com/news/features/israel-to-urge-court-drop-palestinian-farmers-complaint-against-settler-attacks.premium-1.496676

Israeli prosecutors will explain to the High Court of Justice on Monday why it's hard to protect two elderly people from attacks by young Jews.

The Israel Defense Forces and the Israeli police in the West Bank will continue trying to convince the High Court of Justice on Monday that the routine of fear in which two elderly farmers live due to attacks by settlers is reasonable and proportionate.

1. Here's why we shouldn't have to do our job.

I don't know what the actual argument is, but it's either along the lines of we can't protect people against the settlers, or else that we shouldn't have to. Both are damning against the government. I don't think the High Court will accept any of it.

2. Maybe they can just declare the area a closed military zone,

bulldoze all traces of their existence so the land is uninhabited, and be done with the petty irritation.

3. Those terrorist settlers need to GTFO.

F*cking cowards won't throw them in prison where they belong.

The vomit-inducing stench of Israeli apartheid is spreading. Look at these idiotic prosecutors defending the rights of these violent and racist settlers the right to terrorize innocent people.
