Don't Condemn Hilltop Youth says Yesha Leader
Sarah Eliash, a longtime leader in Judea and Samaria and a founder of the Yesha Council (Council for Judea and Samaria) said that condemning hilltop youth for the so-called price tag attacks will not solve the problem. In an interview with Arutz Sheva's Hebrew language news service, Eliash discouraged blanket statements against the activist teenagers and advocated community dialogue to help understand why the youth are acting out.
Several incidents have been blamed on youth from the hilltop communities of Judea and Samaria such as vandalizing Arab property and the incident last week when protesters stopped the demolition of a hilltop community by breaking into an army center and scuffling with soldiers.
