Israel-haters have disseminated a video of “Israeli settlers attacking Palestinian farmers and activists of Faz3a during an olive harvest.”

What they do not show you is what happened before.
Here is a Channel 12 television report showing the incident. What happened were palestinian Arabs went to harvest olives, accompanied by Faz3a activists. Some Jewish hilltop youths tried to prevent them from staying, and the two sides got into an argument. As tensions mounted, some of the Arabs physically accosted one of the youths. Then other youths started throwing stones.
Now don’t get me wrong. These hilltop youth are a tiny group containing some thugs. Many of them are juvenile delinquents who start up with palestinian Arabs. I condemn them and wish they had more parental guidance.
But that doesn’t take away from the fact that the Arabs in this case started the violence, and the Israel-haters deliberately cut out the incriminating footage in order to paint an inaccurate picture.
Because it’s what they do.

Update: QNN did not get the memo, and are showing the clip of the palestinians hitting the youth.
