Springwater continues to be vital to Palestinian farmers, but recently, at the settlers' initiative, many springs on the other side of the Green Line have been turned into tourism sites from which the Palestinians are barred. Hebrew-language signs have been posted near many springs; some places have become memorial sites for settlers killed in terror attacks or during military service.


Another day and another news about the injustice being carried in Palestine specially by illegal settlers. Ofcourse the mighty Israel if wanted can easily control these settlers but by not doing so makes it crystal clear these illegal settlers have full backing from the state.


"The takeover of the springs, while blocking access to the Palestinians, is only one reflection of an extensive project being implemented by the settlers with the full backing of the state," says Etkes. "They are trying to appropriate for themselves points of unique historical and landscape value such as nature reserves, lookout points and archaeological sites."


The water system which is critical for agriculture in Palestine is being used as tourist site but what the heck, news such as this will go under the piles of similar news into obscurity as always.

Are they Sirious!!!?
sure, why not?

Yes, this type of stuff happens everyday, over there and nobody is doing anything about it, because it is happening all over the world. Faces and places, land and hatred. Sad world, Mad world - yes, it's true.

Let them have Spring H2.0!
