"I WOULD NOT CALL IT JEWISH TERROR"

SEE UPDATE BELOW
STEINITZ DISMISSES SETTLER VIOLENCE: 'I WOULD NOT CALL IT JEWISH TERROR'
"Let's not forget the overall situation. Every day there are such incidents on the Palestinian side.”JPost

THE BLAZING HEADLINE ON SUNDAY’s JERUSALEM POST (English) PAPER EDITION read:  "Palestinian killed in clashes with settlers, IDF after hiker stabbed"

WHICH SHOULD HAVE BEEN WRITTEN:
Youth Stabbed by Palestinian, After Gang Attacked Settler Youths on Hike Shabbat Afternoon.

AND TODAY, SUNDAY, THE ONLINE ARTICLE ‘REARRANGED’ SAYS:
Palestinian Killed in Violent Altercation with Settlers over Shabbat

We can see also from these “media” headlines, what the Jerusalem Post wants you to believe about what happened in Adei Ad. “Fake”, no, but with “reverse-twisting” to brainwash its readers into mis-understanding and attributing blame on the youth. Also the incident occurred ON SHABBAT, the attack was not ‘over Shabbat’.

We can also see from this, that the “media” is slanted against the Youth (i.e. Jewish Communities in Yehuda and Shomron), whose parents were once “valued pioneers of Israel helping to settle the Land". Equating the altercation/attack with equivalency is insidious- and stealth-reporting.

WHEN IN FACT THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED:
"They surrounded me and tried to drag me into the village”. Teenager recounts how Palestinian Arabs stabbed, beat, and attempted to kidnap him near the Samaria community of Adei Ad. arutzsheva

The PALESTINIAN VERSION HEADLINE IN THE TIMES OF ISRAEL:
"IDF and Police Probe Palestinian’s Killing in West Bank Clash, Likely by Settler”. Palestinians say Adei Ad **outpost residents attacked villagers (of al-Mughayiron their land, shot Hamdi Na’asan; settlers say youth was ambushed, stabbed in the hand, and that (squad?) gave chase timesofisrael

“The community of Adei Ad relentlessly sees the repeated attacks by residents of the Arab villages in the region and they call on the security forces to respond harshly and punish all the villages of terrorism,”

THIS IS WHAT THE PALESTINIANS OF al-Mughayir ARE PLOTTING AND FIGHTING ABOUT:

"State planning to triple size of new settlement for Amona evacuees”
**Civil Administration proposal would see Adei Ad outpost included within the jurisdiction area of Amichai, thereby legalizing the hilltop community located over a kilometer away” (from Amichai), AND ALSO "nearby Palestinian village of al-Mughayir"

**The Civil Administration — the Defense Ministry body that authorizes construction in the West Bank — publicized the plan in response to a High Court of Justice petition by four Palestinian villages in the central West Bank that demanded the demolition of the Adei Ad outpost, which they argue has prevented residents from reaching their farmland. timesofisrael

HOWEVER:
**“[. . .] a Civil Administration official explained that its plan to legalize the outpost comes on the heels of a survey conducted by the Defense Ministry’s 'Blue Line Team' last year, which confirmed Adei Ad’s establishment on state land that doesn’t belong to private Palestinian owners.” timesofisrael

#UNDERSTANDING “A JUST SOLUTION":

The "Regulation Law”: A Knesset press release explains the intricacies of the “Regulation Law” bill (introduced by Bayit Yehudi MK Bezalel Smotrich), which passed by a vote of 60-52, saying that “in many cases, settlements were built in agreed-upon areas, and were even encouraged or built in coordination with the state, or were built in good faith by the Israeli residents, who were unaware that this was privately-owned land. Leaving the situation as is in these settlements, or their destruction, is liable to seriously, unjustifiably harm those who have lived there for many years. Therefore, the regulation of these settlements is necessary.”

"A team of surveyors known as the State Property Delimitation Team, or the “Blue Line Team,” was established to utilize technologies that had been unavailable to Albeck to review her work.

Over the past 18 years the “Blue Line Team” has been reevaluating Albeck’s lines and redrawing their own blue lines in areas where even the slightest doubts arose. An example of the work of the Blue Liners is an incident in March 2016, when families living in 190 homes in the Binyamin region community of Eli woke up one morning to find themselves outside of the blue line of their town.

Technically speaking, their homes were no longer standing on state land, and therefore the homeowners ran the risk of having their homes demolished should an anti-Israel NGO come forward and claim the property belonged to a local Arab.

Ultimately, that’s why the bill’s passage was crucial. Jewish landowners and their families who bought homes in good faith and with government support and lived there for years based on Albeck’s findings shouldn’t become homeless and have to endure all the trauma that goes with an eviction because of new blue lines.

60 members of Knesset understood this and voted to pass the bill. Thanks to the new law a just solution has been provided for all who are involved.”

UPDATE:  The Arab who was killed during the events near the Samaria community of Adei Ad over the weekend, Hamdi Nussan, was a convicted terrorist who sat in prison for a number of terror attacks.

Speaking with Arutz Sheva on Sunday, a spokesman for the community of Adei Ad said that the Arab man who was killed was not a mere "demonstrator but a terrorist. A convicted terrorist who sat in Israeli jail. The 'father of four' described in the media had a past of serious offenses of shooting and placing bombs.

"We are talking about a Hamas terrorist. By the way, that entire village is a Hamas village. It's a village in which arrests are carried out by security forces almost every night," arutzsheva
