Oh dear, it's kicking off again in that continental fault line called Israel. So near to a full moon too, tensions must be boiling over. Not sure what to add really apart from this seems just another example of tit for tat, violence for violence madness.

Things seem to be heating up out there in the Middle East with flashpoints like Lebanon, Syria, Gaza and Iran waiting for a spark to light the seemingly inevitable fire.

Your link is missing.

found a couple

Some 1,000 join funeral procession for Palestinian killed in Silwan

One Killed, another wounded by Private Security Guard in East Jerusalem

Palestinian shot dead by Israeli guard in East Jerusalem, sparking riots

Interesting to see how the stories are differant from each side. Were the kids harrassing the guy? Maybe they instigated the event? Or was the guy a thug to them and things got out of hand.

A Fatah spokesman is now saying the murder of the Palestinian that sparked the riots was a 'calculated' act with 'political goals.' It really does seem like a spanner is always thrown into the works when peace is on the horizon.

Ug.. I have no doubt that the murder of the Palestinian was a issue of thuggery that got out of control, either on the part of the security guard or the palestinians. A calculated act? Not likely.

My only question is, was this on Israeli land (as agreed in 1967) or Palestinian land stolen by Israel?

It does make a HUGE difference IMO..

Some information from a source (don't know any real information about the allegiences of this source)



On maps issued by the Israeli government and organizations, part of what Palestinians and others consider to be Silwan is labeled City of David (Ir David in Hebrew). Since Israel gained control over East Jerusalem in 1967, Jewish organizations have sought to re-establish a Jewish presence in Silwan. In 1987, the Permanent Representative of Jordan to the United Nations wrote to the Secretary-General to inform him of Israeli settlement activity; his letter noted that an Israeli company had taken over two Palestinian houses in the neighborhood of al-Bustan after evicting their occupants, claiming the houses were its property. Wadi Hilwe, an area of Silwan close to the western wall of the Old City, wherein lies the neighborhood of Al-Bustan, has been a focus of Jewish settlement.
