61. Seriously?

The thing that nobody brings up is that how many of these settlements are fundamentalist in nature?

Are you kidding? You think that nobody talks about the fundamentalist streak present in many of the settler's ideology? If that's true then you really have not spent much time on these kinds of boards or reading news about the I/P conflict. Because that's a consistent theme that's constantly being rehashed and brought up.

The reality is that most of the settlers are NOT fundamentalists. Those people are the minority in the settlement community, itself a minority within the Israeli community, let alone world Jewry. And out of the fundamentalist settlers, these ones on the tape are from Hebron, which has got to be the most volatile hotspot in the entire I/P conflict. It is where the very worst settlers live. It is where some of the worst atrocities were committed against the indigenous Jews by Arabs. And it is literally one of the places where the entire conflict actually began.

So yeah, those guys suck. No one denies it. They are hated throughout Israel as much as they are in the Arab world. No one's going to question the video's legitimacy, I'm very sure it's all true. Those assholes do shit like that all the time. It's hardly uncommon. But bear in mind that those are the worst of the worst among Israelis. It's the equivalent of showing Hamas bomb-makers talking about how much they hate the Jews as they wire together explosives. We always knew that these people existed. Showing that they exist and really ARE mean isn't exactly shocking news.
