'Pistol-Toting Settler' Strikes Again

Richard Boudreaux is in love with the stereotypical image of the "pistol-toting settlers." So, when Yaakov Asael of Susya killed yesterday's terrorist, he just couldn't help himself from writing:

It was the start of a rampage Tuesday that ended with six Israelis injured and the Palestinian assailant dead, shot by a pistol-toting Jewish settler and a border policeman in front of scores of terrified onlookers.

For Boudreaux, settlers are always "pistol-toting," but not gardeners or teachers (though other media outlets provided this information about the brave man who stopped the Palestinian terrorist from killing innocent civilians.)

Also in this article, Boudreaux misleads:

The 208,000 Palestinians who live there make up about one-third of the city's population but lack citizenship.

In fact, 12,000 eastern Jerusalem Arabs hold Israeli citizenship. All were offered Israeli citizenship but most rejected it for political reasons. Boudreaux is himself well aware of this fact.

The poor Palestinian bulldozer drivers - can't even drive two feet without being brutally murdered by the pistol-toting settlers...

I hope that David is being sarcastic because if the "pistol toting settler" had not shot the terrorist when he did who knows how many others would have been injured or killed?

Poor palestinian buldozer drivers. They can't drive 2 feet and injure 6 civilians wihtout being shot at. They should really form a union and coumplain about Pistol-toting settlers.
