Ecumenical group cites increased attacks on Palestinian villages
By Judith Sudilovsky
January 27, 2012

From the article:

The homes at the edge of this Palestinian village are located a few hundred meters from houses in the Jewish settlement of Yitzhar. But the relationship is anything but neighborly.

On a late January tour of the Palestinian village led by representatives of the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI), residents said attacks by Jewish settles on their village are more organized and increasing.

and

One of the Israeli responses has been to prevent the Palestinians from entering land more than 60 meters from their home, much of which is used by the residents to grow their own produce in small gardens, he said.

According to the United Nations Office of the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the weekly average of settler attacks against Palestinians and their property has increased by 40 percent in 2011 compared to 2010 and by over 165 percent compared to 2009.

Israelis from peace groups have come to visit and support them, said village resident Hadra Abdul Kareem, whose 14-year-old son was jailed for 30 days after an attack for throwing rocks back at the settlers.

“We show the children that there are two kinds of people, that there are Israelis who like peace,” she said.“We don’t want to put hatred in their heads. We don’t need violence. I don’t want our children to do violence or to go to jail.”
