    I don’t know about whether it’s Judaism, but it sure isn’t good journalism. It’s hideous behaviour, but no effort at confirming or refuting the Arab family’s claims is made. Maybe everything they said is true. Look into the claims, put it in context, THEN this video might be something other than pointless lashon hara scandalmongering.

    It’s disgusting, but it’s also very unclear. What exactly is going on here? This video tells us very little except that the two women clearly hate each other and that each chooses to remain on one side of the “cage.” Why is there a cage? Who built it? What is it doing there? What is the animosity between the two? Etc.

  3. Read the Ynet report for additional clarity.

    I read the Y-net report which, as I said, is so lazy as to not be journalism.

    The settler’s being incredibly abusive to the Palestinian. It seems pretty clear.

    What if the situation involved Jews living in the midst of the Arab population on the West bank? They would be tortured and killed without a doubt. If Jews can’t live in peace among arabs (like all 23 arab countries and the west bank and gaza have shown) then why the hell should arabs expect to live in peace amongst Jews. Let them live amongst their own kind. Thats what they’ve made the Jews do.

    “then why the hell should arabs expect to live in peace amongst Jews. Let them live amongst their own kind. Thats what they’ve made the Jews do. ”

    well, even if it were simply in order to be able to call our adversarie behemot without blushing.
    the way it is, neither a person with your attitude or certainly that of the settler lady, have no claim to be any better than the behemot they blame.
    i do not think the lady represents our torah middot, neither her husband or his rabbi would be proper bnai torah.

    r’ shmarya,
    u filed this article under: modern orth. while ynet describes the women as haredi.
    i must admit, her attire looks more like MO.
    ideologically, the hebronites are usually very close to chabad, when not ouright chabad belongers.

  10. I don’t see where it says haredi.

    I’ve seen with my own eyes Haredim wrongly assault their ‘Palestinian neighbors’, but I trust the media about as much as… I don’t trust the media. They seem too willing to echo Palestinian claims without verifying them.

    “If Jews can’t live in peace among arabs (like all 23 arab countries and the west bank and gaza have shown) then why the hell should arabs expect to live in peace amongst Jews.”

    I think part of my brain died while trying to find the logic in that.

    What an impressive command of the language the Jewish woman displays – every syllable a qiddush haShem – an eisheth chail without doubt. Now, I’ll go vomit.

    Ben Qorha, sometimes the only way to stop your enemies is to treat them the way they would treat you (although insulting a palestinian woman is hardly torturing and killing her like the arabs would do to a Jew). I’d like to quote Thomas Friedman of the New York Times “The Mideast: 15 rules to live by.” “Rule 9: In Middle east tribal politics there is rarely a happy medium. When one side is weak, it will tell you, “I’m weak, how can I compromise?” And when its strong, it will tell you, “I’m strong, why should I compromise?”” Its the same in the territories; if israel show strength, the palestinians will try to compromise, if Israel shows weakness, the Palestinians will start a war. This is true on a national as well as an individual level. Jews want peace, but sometimes you have to act like a beheima to destroy a beheima…thats what war is.
    And Yos, think about it. Why should we negotiate with and worry about the feelings of a religion and people who hate us and want to see us destroyed. Most palestinians support terrorist attacks, and the arab ministers in the kenesset hope that Israel will one day become a Moslem state. Why should we let our enemies dwell in our midst, especially when they will kill us if we try to dwell amongst them. Your logic Yos is like saying, “even though al qaeda would kill an american, we should let members of Al qaeda live in America, because we wouldnt want to lower ourselves to their level and not grant them freedom to live in our country. That would be un-American”

    BWAHAHAHAH. The arab bitch lives there in a cage??? A Zionist dream if true. So what happens at lunch does the Jewish Woman throw peanuts into the cage??? Maybe someone on skid row should send the ishmalite cow a cardboard box to sleep in.

    Much ado about nothing. The sharmuta is just pissed off because some jewish woman wont be intimidated by her.

    Even R. M. Kahane would not do this.

    yea he would, he was for revenge killings against palestinians. he called members of the now outlawed kach that blew up palestinian targets “heroes.”

    Mr (or messrs) Anonymous,
    It seems few if any are aware of how low, dirty and vulgar the jewish woman (cow is more correct) expresses herself in arabic.
    This is nibbul peh and not torah way. It is chillul hashem of the worst kind.
    Yiikes, fooyah !

    to paraphrase Megilat Ruth:
    עמך לא עמי ואלוקיך לא אלוקי
    ובאשר תמות/’ תמות/’ לבד.
    מכוס התרעלה
    נראה לי באמריקה
    בעגלה ובזמן קריב

    That arab woman spoke just as vulgar in the video. And the Jewish settler was talking in arabic, not hebrew, so for her the word most likely has less meaning. I imagine its like saying the word “merde” in French, or “pendejo” in spanish. Or how about saying “bloody” when upset, like in Britain. To non native speakers the words don’t have the same meaning and force behind them. Regardless, if I lived there and my neghbors were “frum” palestinian moslems, I’d be calling them a lot more than “sharmuta.”

    And that will change exactly what?

    Why dont you try living in hebron for awhile and see if your politeness and overtures of friendship towards the arabs there result in anything but trouble for you neo conservaguy. In that society, either you are on the attack, or on the defense. It would be different if you were dealing with westernised, civilized human beings. But this murder suicide indoctrinated people who voted hamas into power have a whole different set of rules. You are naive if you believe anything different.
