Settlers Burn Palestinian Fields: ‘In Blood and Fire Shall Judea Rise’
It’s fall harvest time in Palestine, which means its the season of pogroms, hooliganism and arson for Israel’s radical settlers who take delight in destroying everything Palestinian they can get their hands on. But after all, they’re only upholding the old Beitar slogan:
In blood and fire Judea fell; in blood and fire shall Judea rise.
Today, fields were burned in Deir Jarir outside Ramallah. I guess they’re only realizing an ancient Zionist dream, eh?
If God destroyed Judea in blood and fire does he really command that rebuilding Judea means burning and killing Palestinian farmers, shepherds and civilians?

Maybe things have changed, but when I spent time in Israel in the ’80s, it seemed obvious that they lived on the produce of Palestinians fields.
The site of burning olive trees in the Holy Land brings tears to even the hardest person.
This and you expect the PA to negotiate or to trust the GOI? Can the GOI not control its own people? If not the GOI, then who? Certainly this is not the work of official policy? Is no one responsible?
“I see the parchment burning, but the letters are flying to heaven.”
Here, even smoke will not solve the problem or make it go away.
The slogan ” בדם ואש יהודה נפלה, בדם ואש יהודה תקום” did not belong and was not originated by Beytar.
This was the slogan of “Hashomer”
It appeared first in 1903 in a song written by Yaccov Cohen after the Kishinev pogrom named “קמנו שבנו” and was later adopted by the “Hashomer” as their slogan.
Actually, it was the slogan of a group called Bar Giora, which was a predecessor of HaShomer. You are more correct in yr attribution than I was. But the slogan is still deeply objectionable especially in the current context.
