Western rabble-rousers promote extremism

From JPost, 11 July 2012, by KHALED ABU TOAMEH:

Anti-Israel foreign nationals living in the West Bank...participated in ...protests in Ramallah....

The first protest, which was organized by a group called "Palestinians for Dignity", was held to demand the cancellation of a planned visit to Ramallah by Vice Premier Shaul Mofaz.

PA policemen and intelligence officers used force to prevent the protesters from marching on PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s presidential compound. At least seven protesters and five journalists were wounded in the confrontation.

The second demonstration was held a few days later to protest against police brutality.

A third demonstration was held last week in Ramallah, where protesters called for the abrogation of the Oslo Accords and demanded the return of all Palestinian refugees to their original villages and homes inside Israel.

A PA security source in Ramallah said that a number of Western nationals took part in all three protests...

Hundreds of Western activists live in Ramallah and surrounding villages and take part in weekly protests against settlements and the West Bank security barrier.
