    It's about time....it is not just the Palestinians that produce extremists. However, there are some interesting undercurrents here.

    Source: Israel Cracks Down on Radical 'Hilltop Youth' : NPR

    And here is one of the undercurrents. This group's attacks have for years been largely ignored. Typically little effort is put into tracking down and arresting the instigators of violence against Palestinians and Israeli Arabs (as compared with violence against Israeli Jews where punative action may include an entire population). It took an attack by this group on an Israeli military establishment to provoke a serious reaction.

    Yet that "terror", in the form of price-tag attacks, had been ongoing for some time.

    They have a valid point, too. The government sanctioned, by turning the other way - all of these illegal settlements. I suspect they even encouraged them - after all, many of them eventually became large enough to include schools and infrastructure that require permits (while Israeli-Arab villages were and are routinely denied expansion permits).

    Extremists have more in common with each other than ever they do with the moderates of their groups.

    Despite being a "Jewish" state, Israel is a very pluralistic society with many subgroups each of whom a different interpretation on what it means to be Jewish. It's government walks a fine political line trying to keep them in balance, or appeased.

    Where is this bogus West Bank in the Bible? The Arabs invented that bullshit in 1950.

    The land is Judea and Samaria, ancient Jewish land.

    I thought messageboard moderators are required to have Einstein-level IQs in order to read posts all day and night for no pay. Evidently, not

    Must your self-hatred and envy of the 1 percenters be so transparent, messageboard reader?
