****UPDATE**** I put this story up on Reddit, and in 2 minutes they took it down. I have erased my account with them and will never visit that censored site again. Fuck Reddit.
(They viciously attacked a 58 year old woman and her husband for tending sheep on their own land. A group of Jewish “settlers”, Israelis that move onto Palestinian land and disrupt or just plain attack the Palestinians until they leave, attacked two elderly Palestinians while they were tending their sheep. The 4 settlers were young men, carrying baseball bats. They broke woman’s jaw and her arm. It was caught on tape and the video is running all over the world. But not here. This is typical behavior for the settlers and the only reason it’s in the NYT is because of the video. It’s also the only reason that these fucking punks who go after elderly women with baseball bats will serve even a day in jail. The cowards wore scarfs on their faces as they beat an woman old enough to be their grandmother, with baseball bats. This is terrorism at it’s finest; using violence to effect social change in the area. Namely, the Palestinians leaving so the Israelis can take over the land. Israel pays the “settlers” a stipend every year to do this. That makes Israel a state sponsor of terrorism. The same Israel that Obama praised as “a beacon of democracy in the region” last month at the AIPAC summit in DC.)

(and this is a still shot taken from the video)
(Two young Israeli children send a message to Palestinian kids. Look closely and you can read “from Israel” on the side of the bomb.)
End the Occupation is a Palestinian Rights organization. I am a proud member for reasons such as this.

West Bank – The conflict between Arabs and Jews over grazing land and water wells in the ancient, arid hills south of Hebron in the West Bank has a distinctly biblical feel, like the flimsy tent encampments and dank caves in which some local Palestinian farming families dwell.
But the primeval feud took on a modern twist this month when Muna Nawajaa, one of the two wives of a Palestinian shepherd from Khirbet Susiya, used a handheld video camera to film what appeared to be masked Jewish settlers viciously beating members of her family with clubs – images that have since been broadcast by news networks all over the world.
