Why are there so many armed Israeli soldiers patrolling the streets.?

Even in occupied Hebron armed troops stop non Jews from walking down their own streets ? Where else in the world would you see this ? and yet Israel states its a democratic country. What ever clip you watch there are armed soldiers present even at the funeral of a Palestinian boy shot dead by the IDF . Even British and Americans have become victims of the IDF

@ Mark There have been no suicide bombers for over 2 years

Update 2:

@ YK Hebron is an occupied city where the Palestinians out number the Jews by at lesrt 10 to 1 What has the bible have to do with present day happenings . Its just an Israeli excuse for its illegal land grabs

Update 3:

@ Mark. So what are armed soldiers doing in Hebron where there never was a suicide bomber ? I will tell you why . There are there to keep out the Palestinians who live there . Apartheid at its best.

    I watched your video, and i don't understand how can any sane person label that as "false data". What i also can't understand is how can anyone try to justify the humiliation of the Palestinian people by the security needs of Israeli illegal settlers. If Palestinian territories are not safe for Israeli settlers, why building illegal settlements there in the first place? Not only that these illegal settlements violate the international law (international community, International Court of Justice, Security Council), but they also violate the Oslo agreement which Israel signed that "neither side shall initiate or take any step that will change the status of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip pending the outcome of the permanent status negotiations.” And sadly, Jewish terrorism against the Palestinians is not a problem for Israeli supporters. According to the UN fact finding mission "Little if any action is taken by the Israeli authorities to investigate, prosecute and punish violence against Palestinians, including killings, by settlers and members of the security forces, resulting in a situation of impunity". I wonder, would our Israeli friends here support the same humiliation against Israeli illegal settlers to protect the Palestinians? Or that would be too antisemitic?

    @Simple Simon

    It is Jerusalem not Jewsalem! And Judah tribe, Hebrews, and modern Jews are different. Or maybe you are saying that a Chinese convert to Judaism is a biological descendant of Judah or Hebrews? Other than name similarities, do you have any proof that Palestinian territories are Jewish? For example, can you name Jewish unique culture in Palestine (including Israel) before 1948? Or can you explain why the Jewish population of what you call Judea was 1% in 1948? If it was Jewish land, do you think Jewish settlers would need to forge land deeds?


    @Short and sweet

    Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories are open for all Jews in the world, not for Jews who lived there before 1948 and supposedly expelled by Jordan! That is what makes them colonial settlements. Do you want more proof than your own leader saying "Israel can't return to the 1967 borders because it will leave too many Israelis behind"? If any Jews are expelled, then they can ask for the right of return. That is how it works. Colonial Nazi way will only create more violence and hate. Which is obviously what Israel wants.

    bulldog brit, begging your pardon,,,,here are the facts ....

    August 28, 2011 -- Eight people were wounded when a Palestinian man from Nablus attacked a Tel Aviv nightclub. The terrorist hijacked a taxi in Jaffa and rammed into an Israel Border Police checkpoint that had been set up to protect the event of over 2,000 people. He then jumped out of the taxi, shouted “Allahu Akhbar” and began stabbing bystanders and police.

    August 18, 2011 -- A series of attacks targeted civilians and soldiers in southern Israel, killing eight people and wounding at least 31. Terrorists from Gaza infiltrated Israel via the border with Egypt, fired on a civilian buses and vehicles, detonated explosives when soldiers arrived on the scene of the attack, and then launched mortar shells at soldiers along the Israeli-Egyptian border.

    March 11, 2011 – Five Israelis, all members of the same family, were stabbed to death in their beds by two men, both believed to be Palestinian. The victims included father and mother Ehud and Ruth Fogel, and three of their six children, Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and three-month-old Hadas. The brutal murders, which occurred in Itamar, drew international condemnation from governments, the United Nations and the Middle East Quartet of nations.

    September 1, 2010: Two Israelis were wounded, one seriously, when Hamas terrorists ambushed their car as as the couple was driving near Kochav Hashachar.

    August 31, 2010: Four Israelis, including a pregnant woman, were murdered when terrorists ambushed their car as they were driving near Kiryat Arba in the West Bank. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack, which coincided with the restarting of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks in Washington, D.C.

    In my opinion this is reason enough.....

    You're using youtube from a nutjob, and Rense - a wellknown antisemitic site similar to David Duke of the KKK, so you've gotten false data!!

    The security inside the PAuthority areas is administered by the PAuthority. There is some pre-negotiated cooperation with IDF from the Olso accords.

    There is a small Jewish community inside Hebron, and Israeli security surrounds them (or they'd be dead quickly.) This is an ancient Jewish community going back to Abraham's settling in Hebron in the Bible, continuously except for when Jordan occupied.


    From the founder of Human Rights Watch in 2010 on a suicide bomber who killed 3 as they were transporting 1 of 11000 Palestinians into Israel for medical treatment since beginning of 2010. She was on crutches pretending to be ill, so when 3 soldiers went to help her, blew herself up killing them. The writer's main point is that he now finds himself having to speak out about the group he founded:

    Everytime Israel opens a border checkpoint, at request of Palestinians, a suicide bomber is sent. It doesn't make international news.


    "When I was in Israel, I went to the Gaza border and I learned that since the beginning of 2010, more than 11,000 patients with their escorts exited the Gaza Strip for medical treatment in Israel. Surprisingly and sadly, this policy has risks. I was told the Israelis make the Palestinians change cars at the border because cars had been rigged to explode. A woman on crutches was changing cars. She fell down. Three Israeli soldiers ran to help her get up. She blew herself up, killing the four of them. The Hamas government is preaching genocide of Israel, yet Israel is treating Gaza’s sick. It struck me as bizarre that in an asymmetric war of attrition, which we’re still learning about how to fight, a nation cares for the sick of a neighbor that is preaching genocide to its people and the only human rights comment has been that they are not doing it well enough."

    To me the definition of a coward is someone who attacks innocent unarmed civilians and claims victory.

    The IDF cowards would never do that kind of sheet here in Lebanon because they would face the entire Lebanese population, nobody here likes them, not even the Christians, we as Lebanese Jews despite them more than the Muslims and the Christians do, for the sole reason that they use Judaism to justify their stupidity and cowardliness in the name of decent Jews around the world.

    We’re not like them, but then again they’re not Jews they’re Atheists by their own admittance

    I’m a Lebanese Jew.

    Hebron is the first capital of Hebews, AKA Jews.

    Later Jews made Jewsalem be cpital of this land which is called Judea.

    So, do you say Jews occupy Judea?

    It is because suicide bombers from Palestine have killed many innocent Israeli civilians without true cause

    It´s exactly because Hebron, a Jewish city mentioned as such in the Bible, is now occupied by arabs that the Jewish soldiers have to patrol the streets. I understand your preoccupation, and I can promise that as soon as we kick the arab bandits and occupiers from our land, includiing Hebron, the number of soldirs will immediately be reduced.

    If those "poor Palestinians" would stop blowing themselves up in crowded cafes and buses, and stop murdering innocent Israelis, there wouldn't be any need for the armed soldiers.

    [edit] Yes, and it is **precisely** because of the presence of soldiers that things have been relatively peaceful.
