Palestinian farmers walk near Israeli soldiers after an Israeli settlers tried to stop Palestinian farmers from working in their land in the village of Immatein, east of the West Bank town of Qalqilya, on January 11, 2010. A long-time leader of the main Israeli settler organisation in the occupied West Bank resigned citing the group's failure to distance itself from Jewish hardliners. In his resignation letter as secretary general of the Yesha Council, Pinchas Wallerstein, 61, condemned the organisation's failure to speak out against the "price tag" policy under which ultra right-wingers attack Palestinian villages when the government takes action against Jewish settlements.
