“This attack is a direct result of the removal of roadblocks.” The Israelis removed 100 roadblocks a couple of weeks ago “to make life easier for Palestinians” and, apparently, to please George Mitchell and Barack Obama. “Israeli shot in West Bank,” by Efrat Weiss for Ynet, September 29 (thanks to Pamela):
An Israeli citizen suffered mild to moderate gunshot wounds to his hand Tuesday evening near the West Bank settlement of Shvut Rachel, north of Jerusalem.
According to local settlers, at approximately 8 pm unknown assailants opened fire at an Israeli vehicle travelling east of Shvut Rachel….
The shots apparently came from terrorists positioned at the side of the road.
“This is the fourth shooting in the area in the past four months,” Binyamin Council Head Avi Roeh told Ynet.
“This attack is a direct result of the removal of roadblocks. It’s only by some miracle that the outcome of these attacks has been no worse than injuries, but you cannot base security policies on miracles.”
