The Shomron Residents Committee was quick to react to the news that dozens of policemen had been injured during a riot-control exercise.
“The violent show put on by Israel Police is the best proof of our claims regarding the iron fist that the police use against the Jewish residents,” the Committee said.
Shomron is yet another illegal settlement on Palestinian lands, a factoid which never quite makes it into this little article.
The Israeli government has absolutely no objection to these settlers attacking Palestinians, confiscating their homes and destroying their fields; they just get agitated when this kind of behavior gets documented by any kind of media. so that the world can really see what is happening here.

"Women for Life highlighted the Zionists' confiscation of Palestinian land by marching to Wadi Qana, a valley once full of natural springs and fertile land hosting Palestinian citrus crops. The valley — which is surrounded by the illegal Israeli settlements of Imanuel, Yakir, Nevi Menachem, Karnei Shomron, Nov Qana, and Givot Shomron — has had most of its water wells either stolen or polluted by these illegal paramilitary outposts. The loss of water wells and the pollution of the remaining natural springs in 1986 forced the 350 Palestinian residents of Wadi Qana to leave the valley and move to the nearby village of Deir Istya."
