“Young men protesting against illegal settlements are heroes,” said Mohammed Zain, a local activist from the Nablus area at the time.

“We will continue peaceful protests until we foil the Israeli government’s plan to take over our land. What happened on Saturday is not because we are against the Jewish religion, or because we support Hitler. We just wanted to send a message that there isn’t much of a difference between Israel and the Nazis.

Beita municipality officials declined to comment at the time on the burning of the Star of David with a swastika, but several activists in the city defended the action and accused Israel of committing “war crimes.” Against the inhabitants of Beita.
