The Hilltop Youth (Noar HaGbaot) are several youth subgroups with nationalist-religious ideology (known as Givonim). Mostly young people (second-generation Jewish settlers) that settle in illegal outposts in Judea and Samaria (West Bank). Many of them work in cattle ranching or agriculture, usually eat organic food, and listen to Jewish New Age music.
Settling throughout the Land of Israel, especially in the West Bank to establish faits accomplis, is an important component of their ideology. Many see this as the fulfillment of God’s will and the acceleration of redemption.
Many members of Hilltop Youth defend radical right-wing positions. Some participate actively against the evacuation of outposts in Judea and Samaria and many others participated in protests against Gaza Disengagement (2005). The Israeli Security Forces believe that some of them participate in activities called Tag Mehir or Price Label. Price Label refers to illegal activities by radical rightwing activists. These actions, where the graffiti “Price Label” appears, began in 2008 and translated into acts of violence against Palestinians and their goods (such as throwing stones, damage to mosques, burning fields and crops and destruction of properties), as well as actions that damage goods belonging to Israeli police or the Israel Defense Forces. In some other cases, they threaten or attack Israeli or Arab Israeli left-wing activists.
These actions usually happen in response to the demolition of non-authorized structures in the outposts by the Police or the IDF or after administrative detention or restraining orders against their activists or after attacks against Jews.
