From Haaretz and Maan, settlers apparently representing the recently dismantled illegal (even by Israeli standards) settlement of Alei Ayin have allegedly set fire to and vandalized a Palestinian mosque in the small West Bank village of Al-Mughayyir. The village is close to the site of where the Israeli settlement used to stand and the words "Price Tag" (a reference to the more violent settlers policy of causing damage or violence toward Palestinians in return for the Israeli government dismantling squatter settlements in the West Bank) and "Alei Ayin" were spraypainted on an exterior wall of the mosque.
This is certainly not the first price tag attack by angry settlers on Palestinians and their property but I think it perfectly illustrates the serious discrepancy and bias of the Israeli military in administering the occupation of the West Bank. The IDF is generally pretty effective at keeping Palestinians out of Israeli settlements in the occupied territory, but is not nearly as effective (as a matter of policy and resources) at keeping settlers out of Palestinian towns and villages. Palestinians living under Israeli control and administration in Area C and partially in Area B in the West Bank have far different access to police and legal services than (not to mention transportation and zoning access) do Israeli settlers - even those that the Israeli government acknowledges are living illegally in the West Bank. This is not a matter of neglect but of policy and I'm not sure how it's any less abhorrent than Jim Crow laws discriminating against African-Americans in the American South.
This is also one of the many things that makes Israel's continuing occupation of the West Bank (and Golan Heights) so different than so many modern military occupations. The Israeli military is not only attempting to pacify a population hostile to their presence, but protect and encourage civilians that live in scattered villages, towns, and cities that checker the occupied territory.
I cannot help from being reminded of the Jacob's Tomb incident of several weeks ago in which an Israeli visitor to Jacob's Tomb was shot and killed by a Palestinian Authority policeman after members of his group attempted to drive through a PA checkpoint. The group of worshipers had failed to coordinate their visit to the site (which lies in Area A, under full civil and security control of the Palestinian Authority) with the IDF and PA. The police officer reported that he fired on the cars of visitors after they failed to heed the PA checkpoint and warning shots fired into the air.
The village of Al-Mughayyir (where the mosque arson took place) is within Area A/B where the PA has either full or joint security control with the IDF. What exists in much of the West Bank is an extremely unstable situation in which both the Palestinian Authority and Israeli settlers are attempting to assert competing authorities over the same lands. The failure to draw up any recognizable borders between Palestinians and Israelis only makes problems like the price tag attacks and the killing of an Israeli worshiper at Jacob's Tomb all the more likely. While a final status agreement would certainly draw borders between the two sides, the current situation (in which Israeli settlements are scattered haphazardly on hilltops across the West Bank) is terrible for the stability and safety of both sides.
