Oct 3, 2022, Samaria: The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) is stretched to the limit during this Fall Festival season of 2022. 20 minutes uphill from here in Samaria, Nablus is a Roman-era name (in Greek) for Shechem, an ancient Hebrew town. This is the location where Joseph’s bones are buried; yes, that Joseph, Pharaoh’s right-hand man in Egypt.
On 2 October 2022 in Shechem, Israeli Jews had a peaceful rally. They came under fire from Arab non-Israelis from the area. The overall council head of Samaria, Yossi Dagan, was photographed crouching behind an automobile for cover, pistol drawn, defending children. This was a peaceful rally with many children present – Arabs opened fire for no reason other than their hurt feelings that Jews simply exist in Samaria.
