Violent Protests against Intel
A day after violent haredi protests rocked the offices of hi-tech giant Intel in the capital's Har Hotzvim industrial park, Mayor Nir Barkat and Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer on Sunday voiced unequivocal support for the company during an inauguration ceremony for its new International Die Prep-Jerusalem (IDPj) facility there
Meanwhile, The Jerusalem Post learned that the riots on Shabbat had been far worse than originally reported, and that in addition to the rocks and epithets hurled at journalists and other bystanders, haredim had broken into a synagogue on Intel's premises, thrown prayer books to the floor and used prayer stands to bash in the doors. (watch the video)
They apparently attacked a Palestinian journalist who came to cover the riots, but, the Israeli press didn't seem interested in reporting that one. Given the way Palestinians are abused by Israeli settlers, the IDF, the government..... no surprise there.
But this is not the first time these religious fanatics have attacked journalists, remember this one? Reporter feels mob's hate in the Holy City
And one more:
Israel could annex more of the West Bank
An Israeli cabinet minister said on Monday Israel could annex more of the West Bank if Palestinians declared statehood without concluding a peace agreement.
"If the Palestinians take such a unilateral line, Israel should also consider ... passing a law to annex some of the settlements," Environment Minister Gilad Erdan, a close ally of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, told Israel Radio
Those settlements are illegal under international law, Israel has no right to them in the first place, never mind to annex them. Israel, remember the Palestinians have right of return.
Unless they decide otherwise and then there is the issue of compensation......
So much for Israel really wanting peace. Every action they take with regards to Palestine flies in the face of their claims.
