Arabs Rob Federman Farm in Hevron
A group of Arabs broke into the Federman Farm near Hevron and stole a herd of goats on Wednesday.

Farm residents say local IDF officers saw the hue and cry had been raised and dispatched troops to the area to aid them. IDF scouts reportedly followed the trail to an Arab neighborhood in Hevron, but have so far been unable to locate the goats.

Theft from Jewish farmers by Arab gangs in southern Israel, especially Judea, is a pervasive phenonemon. Beyond simple theft, it has been known to result in violent confrontations.

Area residents say they are furious that while the army joined the chase, police did not see fit to become involved in what was clearly a criminal matter. Police declined to comment on the crime.

1. Could be worse!
At least they did not chop down or poison mature olive groves or set fire to fields.

2. It is always good to look at the positive side of things
However, when that positive, sunny attitude is used to downplay the significance of a crime, it is not healthy.

3. Could be said for either side
and their supporters who will scream loud and wide for all to hear when "the enemy" commits a crime but is surprisingly quiet or absent when the faction they support does something reprehensible.

4. Well by all means don't rise about that or anything.
I mean who says that you should have a higher personal standard for commentary? Just join the peanut gallery and throw stones constantly never seeing the other side.

5. Exactly!
Refusing to see the other side of the story because one is bloated with "patriotism" or prejudice against another group is one sure way to extend any conflict to the point that the next generation may need to take over the reigns of the good fight.
