'Ishmael' Dogs Abraham the Shepherd in Modern Biblical Tale
Arutz ^ | 6/11/12

Modern-day news stories don't get more Biblical that that of elderly shepherd Avraham Herzlich – who is dogged by Arab thieves in the hills of Samaria. According to both Jewish and Muslim tradition, the Arabs are descendants of Ishmael, son of the Biblical patriarch Abraham, who was a shepherd.

Last weekend, Arabs stole about 400 goats from the herd of Avraham Herzlich, leaving him with only four goats out of what was, for him, much more than a money-making business.

His son Shmuel told Arutz Sheva about the robbery, not the first one where Arabs have left his father without the herd he nurtured on the hills of Samaria (Shomron).

Shmuel says that he himself is the owner of another kind of business altogether, but at various times he is called to help his father take care of the herd. One of those times is the time of moving from one pasture to another, so a few weeks ago his father Avraham left the Tapuach area, where he lives, on a grazing trip in the Givat HaYekev (Winery Hill) region in Binyamin, the hill where the Migron expellees were sent.
