A Nazi flag was seen raised by Arab residents of Beit Umar over a major road, between Halhoul and the Etzion Bloc, not far from Hebron in the West Bank, Israel National News reported Saturday.

Soldiers from the Israel Defense Forces Haruv battalion of the Kfir Regiment tried to take down the flag, but were unable to because of its height, INN said.

In May, Arab residents of the same town hoisted a Nazi flag over Highway 60.

The incident comes as Israel and the Palestinian Authority continue along the path of the current ongoing  U.S.-led peace talks.

In a recent speech, Prime Minister Netanyahu pointed to the historic Palestinian Arab support for the Nazis during the Holocaust.

  • The PA incitement from Rammala is worst.
    blames jews for 9/11 and praises hitler.

    Two days before US President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel and the PA, on March 18, 2013, the PA daily Al Hayat al Jadida published an op-ed, by Hassan Ouda Abu Zaher:

    “…… The source of this history is the West -…..Our history is replete with lies,….. to the lie about Al-Qaeda and the Sept. 11 events, which asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action by the Freemasons, which was mentioned in the Illuminati game cards ten years before it took place, and in over 15 Zionist and Freemason Hollywood-produced films in the 1990s. The method of repeating [the lies] over and over has authenticated false facts…..

    Churchill and Roosevelt were alcoholics, and in their youth were questioned more than once about brawls they started in bars, while Hitler hated alcohol and was not addicted to it.
    …… These facts have been turned upside down as well, and Satan has been dressed with angels’ wings…”

    Send the photo to the German Chancellor. The Germans have strict laws relating to nazi items. Now have the Germans cut off Palestinian aid

  • These people have no clue – the Arabs). It should be part of their education to be taught about the Shoah. They are just trying to be offensive but they have no clue about the Holocaust. They should be made to study the history of it. I was not taught it at school but I researched myself as a teenager. I am now an Oldie. “Lest We Forget”. Bet most of them do not even know where that phrase originated or who wrote it. It is also offensive to the people who are still alive from the Camps.

  • So what? What’s new about the fact, that Arabs love Hitler?

  • who and how is going to react if i react a flag of my intimate part with on one side devils 6 6 6 and on other some islam moon or xristian cross?friendship or a war?

  • and what?theres thousands of flags?well,germans become somehow very popular in modern world.but whos fault and whom to blame?

  • Leave it. It shows who we are dealing with.

    • Yes quite right…just laugh at the stupidity of those people. It’s not worth the stress and most fo the world will be horrified anyway surely………….

    One can use powdered white phosphorus in gasoline or diesel fuel and spray the flag with it…
    When the fuel evaporates and the phosphorus contacts the air
    it will ignite spontaneously…
    SWhat’s hapenin g is that the “leadership” is afraid of provoking an international incident…

  • No surprises here. Arafat’s uncle, then the Mufti of Jerusalem, spent 2 yrs of the Holocaust/WWII in Berlin as Hitler’s guest and recruited a Muslim SS group. “In 1941, Haj Amin al-Husseini fled to Germany and met with Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Joachim Von Ribbentrop and other Nazi leaders. He wanted to persuade them to extend the Nazis’ anti-Jewish program to the Arab world.” [Jewish Virtual Library] Hitler replied: “Germany stood for uncompromising war against the Jews. That naturally included active opposition to the Jewish national home in Palestine….Germany would furnish positive and practical aid to the Arabs involved in the same struggle…. Germany’s objective [is]…solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere….In that hour the Mufti would be the most authoritative spokesman for the Arab world. The Mufti thanked Hitler profusely.” [Jewish Virtual Library]

    The Israeli govt doesn’t want to remove the flag, because they don’t want the world to think they’re violating the illegal Arab infiltrators freedom of expression. Not to mention that they’re corrupt leftist traitors, who side with Israel’s enemy on most issues.

  • Sounds to me like a gesture towards peace! Just like Arafat’s uncle the mufti of Jerusalem.

  • Build a large kite about 5 foot tall and instead of one central string use two, each connected half way between the center and the outer horizontal edge. This allows for lateral control and you can maneuver the kite wherever you like. On end of the tail use two pieces of wire in the shape of a fish hook and at the bottom of the hook, attach a razor blade. Maneuver the kite into position, get the hook around the lanyard and maneuver away. Flag comes down.

  • Why would IDF have any trouble destroying this and arresting the flag raisers?

  • A simple solution: The Nazi regime lasted about five years. The Arabs that have been living in Israel should be offered a choice: the same end of their “occupation” in Israel, beginning shortly without further notice by the IDF which protect their lives and property in Israel; or a one-day “reduced-rate U-Haul truck to pack up their f-ing tent and the rest of their crap, and take it someplace else where the IDF doesn’t have to put their lives on the line 24 hours a day to protect them and any other “enemies” of Israel…which, sad to say, is where these ungrateful f-ing Ayrabs live…in their usual filth!!

    If this is true, and I have no reason to doubt the information as there is no contradictioning information, I feel this is shocking and unacceptable!

    In his new play Mr. Goldberg Goes to Tel Aviv, playwright Oren Safdie tackles an issue that he has a major concern with: the relationship between Israelis and left-leaning Diaspora Jews with their “I know better” critical views.

Tony, who is also an [...]

    JNS.org – The 75th anniversary of the premiere of “Gone with the Wind” on Dec. 15 presents an opportunity to examine the Jewish influence on one of the most popular films of all time. That influence starts with the American Civil War epic’s famed producer, David O. Selznick. Adjusted for inflation, “Gone with the Wind” remains the highest-grossing movie ever made. It earned the 1939 Academy Award for Best Picture, the same honor another Selznick film, “Rebecca,” garnered in 1940. Selznick [...]

    ‘Sheriff of Mars’ Unveils Endearing Life of Jewish Music Star Hidden in the Fields of France

    JNS.org – It was an era of steel strings, guitar heroes, and storytellers—high on heroin, rebellious. Outlaw country music, the hallmark of Nashville’s powerful and angry music scene of the 1970s, was the brew of greats such as Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Townes Van Zandt. But there is another, little-known music hero of that era: Daniel Antopolsky. A Jewish lad from Augusta, Ga.—the son of immigrants who settled in the south and ran a hardware store on Main Street—the [...]
