Tensions rise due to settlers claiming major archaeological site IMEMC - Repeatedly, relgious-nationalist settlers try to stake a claim to the archaeological site of Sebastia, near the Palestinian village of the same name. As depicted in settler communiques, Sebastia or Samaria was "The Ancient Capital of Israel". This version glosses over the fact that the Bible refers to the place as a sinful, idolatrous city, eventually destroyed by God. Moreover, the impressive ruins to be seen there are much later - from a Roman city inaugurated by King Herod, whose own historical reputation is shady, to say the least. This week, the settlers demanded - and got - intensive military escort for a visit by a group of religious schoolgirls. The girls were conducted around the ruins by settler guides and told that they were seeing "a major site of Jewish historical heritage", while soldiers established an armed perimeter all around and shot heavy barrages of tear gas at Palestinian protesters. Mohammed Azem, Mayor of Sebastia, expressed protest and outrage at the settler incursion and announced that a Palestinian national festival, organized by the municipality, will be held on the same archaeological site next Friday.

Settler winery, on stolen land, declared best Israeli winery of 2018 ýDror Etkes - Kerem Navot ţ - Psagot was declared by "World Finance" to be the best Israeli winery of 2018. We surely don`t regard ourselves as experts on the wine industry, but we do know a bit about the status of the land on which the grapes are grown for the Psagot winery. Psagot Winery`s business plan is based on serial property delinquency and systematic violence against Palestinian landowners. The Psagot Winery website details where the vineyards from which the grapes come are located. No less than four of their vineyards (Psagot, Elon Moreh, Kida - east of Shilo - and Har Bracha) are located in and around West Bank settlements populated by hard core religious extremists, who play a leading role in the trend of agricultural takeovers. At least 57% of the grapes were planted on privately-owned Palestinian land - an act of outright theft and robbery committed with the tacit connivance of the military authorities. [ak]10/4/2018
