|Last week some inhabitants of the Palestinian village of Burin, near Nablus, set up a small and peaceful protest camp on private land in an attempt to protect the village from encroaching Jewish settlers. On Saturday, the Israeli Army evicted the Palestinians. According to one report, the settlers uprooted nearly 100 olive trees, a 16-year-old Palestinian was wounded, 20 people suffered tear gas inhalation, and a mosque was set on fire. The report called on "all member states to comply with their obligations under international law and to assume their responsibilities in their relationship to a state breaching pre-emptory norms of international law." Will U.N. member states comply? Will they impose sanctions on Israel? Certainly the Israeli establishment and the settlers' allies don't think so.|
