Genocidal settlers

Religious fanaticism in Israel may not be a mainstream media topic, but it is a mainstream Israeli ideology

By Khaled Amayreh in the West Bank

Al-Ahram Weekly

".......It is no exaggeration to say that genocide of non-Jews in Israel and Palestine is the ideology of Jewish settlers, and religious Zionism in general. A few weeks ago, one Jewish settler leader in Hebron who was arguing with an American tourist had this to say about how the Jewish state should deal with Arabs.

"You are a Christian, aren't you?"

"Yes," said the American.

"Do you believe in the Bible?"

"Yes," said the American.

"Well then, you should know that God ordered the ancient Israelites to wipe off the goyem from the holy land of Israel. If that was right then, why can't it be right now?"

Startled by the settler's rationale, the American tourist walked away in disbelief."
