donation request - Israeli Settlers Attack Palestinian Shepherds, Kill Donkey, Injure Internationals

Hi!
I recieved an e-mail about this event. Really sad.
It breaks my heart.
If anyone wants to donate to help get the Palestinian family a new donkey, here is the contact info below.

Letter (that I received):

Dear Friends,
The settlers of Havat Maon continue the attacks against Palestinian villagers around the out post.
Today, 15/11/08, they killed a donkey and badly injured another (which will probably won't be able to function anymore).

The cost of each donkey is around 1,000 shekels, a very big amount for these people who barely make their living. Without donkeys it will impossible for them to plow the land in the next כew weeks and bring supplies to their remote village.


We are raising money to buy new donkeys and will appreciate any donation.

Please send checks for "Taayush" to Ezra Nawi, POB 4441, Jerusalem,

Thanks in advance,

South Hebron comity.

AT-TUWANI: Israeli settlers attack Palestinian shepherds, kill donkey, injure internationals.

On 15 November 2008, around 9:00 a.m., approximately fifteen masked Israeli settlers from the illegal outpost of Havat Ma'on attacked three Palestinian shepherds who were grazing their flocks in a valley south of the outpost. The settlers came running down from a ridge above the shepherds, hurling rocks. The shepherds were able to get their flocks away before the rocks injured them.

During the incident, the settlers were able to steal two of the shepherds' donkeys. The settlers killed one donkey with a knife wound in the chest area. They slashed another across the throat, but the donkey survived.

Settlers also hit two internationals from Christian Peacemaker Teams—who were accompanying the shepherds—with large rocks. One CPTer sustained minor injuries.

The Israeli police were called four times before responding to the incident. They did not initially respond to reports of settlers attacking Palestinian shepherds and internationals, but only responded when they learned of the attack on the donkeys.

The assault occurred on land the shepherds graze daily and which the settlers hope to take for the expansion of Havat Ma’on. Replacing the donkey will cost around 1000 NIS, or $265. The Israeli occupation has impoverished the shepherds of the area, and they are currently dependent on outside food aid.

Footage of settlers stealing the donkeys and the Israeli police examining the slain donkey is available on the CPT homepage.

Especially as an animal rights activist, this saddens me even more that someone would treat an animal inhumaneley.
