Tomorrow is Land Day, a traditional day of Palestinian protest against expropriation and occupation. So it’s a good thing that late last night a group of Jewish settlers in the particularly fraught West Bank city of Hebron moved in to a three-story house in a Palestinian neighborhood near the Cave of the Patriarchs (where Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are ostensibly buried) in Hebron. “For us this was a provocation,” said an IDF source. “At this time this is problematic.” This will surely end well!
