Hebron : A Snakepit of Hate and Israeli War Crimes?

"Spitting and hissing at all who met their paranoid displeasure"
Following the temporary withdrawal of the International Solidarity Movement from Hebron due to that organisations difficulty in finding a suitable base there, a number of internationals from the village of Bil'in journeyed down there last week to take up the slack with night patrols, checkpoint monitoring and especially the safeguarding of Palestinian children to and from school from stone throwing, spitting Israeli "settler children and adults. Four in number, we found accomodation in the homes of the Al-Awawi and Egnabi families,previously fire bombed by the colonising "settlers" and illegally evicted but both families still overflowing with the milk of human kindness despite their travails.
One room of Nedal Fareed Al-Awawi's home was gutted by a petrol bomb, and the house's electricity and water connections destroyed in December of last year by colonists from the adjacent illegal Israeli outpost of Avraham Avinu who assaulted him when he was installing a new water tank on the roof of his home, destroying it with gunfire - all in benign view of Israeli police who made no arrests but opined: "'I saw that settler attack on you, you should file a complaint. Be careful of settlers tonight." (related link).
