Religious Settlers and their schools.

Jerusalem24 – Earlier this year, Israeli settlers were forced to evacuate the settlement outpost of Eviyatar, located on Sabeih Mountain on lands belonging to the Palestinian town of Beita; South of Nablus.

Leaving behind them a yeshiva or religious school in the settlement outpost.

On Dec. 16, a group of Palestinians killed an Israeli settler, in an ambush in the northern West Bank. The attack took place in Homesh, one of four West Bank settlements that were evacuated as part of the 2005 Gaza “disengagement.”

Settlers have since rebuilt Homesh as an outpost (which Israel officially deems illegal) and a yeshiva, which have reportedly served as a breeding ground for violent attacks on Palestinians, including the abduction and torture of a Palestinian teenager in August.

With us today to tell us about these religious schools and the settlers who construct them is Walid Habbas, a researcher with the Palestinian Forum for Israeli Studies MADAR.
