Settling in for a Fight

Amona, West Bank—Israeli police evicted settlers on February 1 from an outpost in the West Bank built without government authorization. Nationalist protesters burned tires, threw rocks at the police and chanted, “A Jew doesn’t evict a Jew,” according to NBC News. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to build new settlements, while the Palestinian farmers who owned the land cheered the evictions. Settlers believe President Donald Trump supports their outposts. “We feel good vibrations from Trump. This is the end of this terrible time,” Eli Greenberg, a father of eight who was barricaded inside his Amona home on February 1, told The Washington Post.
