Palestinians Stab Israeli

An Israeli farmer was brutally stabbed to death by Palestinians he hired to pick oranges on Friday in a grove outside Tel Aviv, police said.


They said Moshe Becker, about 60, was stabbed 17 times by workers from the occupied Gaza Strip in his citrus grove about 300 meters from a highway junction where an Israeli gunned down a crowd of Palestinians in 1990.


Israel police chief Rafi Peled told reporters at the scene: "This is without a doubt a murder on nationalist grounds. Laborers during work time killed their employer, the owner of the grove."


Arabs have vowed to continue attacking Jews in an effort to scuttle the Spetember Israeli-PLO peace deal.
