    The American bodyguards of a Bush administration envoy who was dispatched to the region to monitor the implementation of the road map engaged in a violent confrontation with right-wing Israelis who sought to disturb a visit to Hebron on Friday, Israel Radio reported.

    One of the rightists is reported to have driven his jeep into the convoy accompanying General William Fraser. Subsequently, one of the vehicles in the convoy heavily collided with the jeep, according to Israel Radio.

    A fracas ensued between the guards and the rightists before the Americans decided to cut the visit short, Israel Radio reported.

    so.. it's a FRACAS when israelis pull this kind of shit... but TERRORISM when a Pal throws a rock...



    funny how much attention this story recieved too. Had this been pals ramming vehicles into an AMERICAN GENERALS car there would have been bloodshed. LOTS of "justified" bloodshed. But, again, when a zionist decides to violently retain claim to "their" land.. well, that's not terrorism! It's righteous g-d supported DEFENSE.
