A large public protest in the Israeli city of Umm al-Fahm attracted hundreds of demonstrators, mostly Arabs, condemning the military offensive in the West Bank since the kidnapping of three Israeli teens two weeks ago.
The Israeli military has been keen to find the teens, but has been going about it by launching aggressive operations in the occupied West Bank, detaining hundreds and killing at least five civilians.
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is outraged, as usual, and insists the protesters are “terrorists in every sense of the word,” and says he is urging the Security Minister to open criminal cases against all of them for “incitement” against the military.
Israel’s hysterical response to the kidnappings has many on the far right calling for ever more aggressive actions against Arabs for the sake of retaliation, but the civilian toll of the actions so far already have sparked disquiet in the international community. The US blocked a UN resolution criticizing Israel for killing Palestinian civilians in the West Bank, but even if the resolutions are never passed the anger remains.

No they are not "Terrorists" they are "resistance fighters," wonder what Lieberman would call the Polish Underground resistance fighters of Nazi occupied Poland in W.W.II which include Jews?
Seems to me that the Na–s did similar self-defeating reprisals against civilians in countries that they occupied whenever one of their soldiers disappeared or got hurt. They figured that they needed to "terrorize" the occupied into submission. It was an automatic frame of mind – collective punishment.
How long are we going to be allied with these new Na–s?
I guess it takes a terrorist to know a terrorist. They should ship this guy back to Moldova. Hmmm, I wonder if this is the reason so many American politicians are so keen on supporting Moldova from that evil Putin….hedging their bets that Lieberman might some day become Prime Minister.
The state of Israel been terrorizing the Palestinians for last 60 years, what make the state of Israel to be!
Including Lieberman, a terrorists sponsored state with a government being apartheid and brutal as their friends are, namely, Saudis and UAE.
The American government are
the Zionist lawyers and benifactors they are advising them how to wipe out the Palestinians as they did to the native americans and steal their lands.
Aofmerica is the greatest,most fair,a bastion of all that is good all for the Palestinian cause.
