    #18. "you stand for an excuse for law and order." You need to go back and read my post. There is no excuse whatsover for vigilantes uprooting olive trees in Palestinian areas. None. There is no excuse for torching Palestinian cars. The extremists on BOTH sides do not want a real peace and are doing whatever they can to prevent peace but unlike the Palestinians the Israeli's do have a real government and it is morally indefensible to let the settlers destroy Palestinian property and not bring the settlers to justice. The Israeli attitude is "We know they hate us but we refuse to admit we hate them just as much and the rule of law does not apply to this conflict unless it is in Israels favor." Without the rule of law you have anarchy and when you have anarchy you have no State. It's one thing for the Palestinians to behave this way but for the Israeli government to do so as well? Without the rule of law there is only the law of vigilantees.
