These pogroms aren't about retaliation. They're based on ideology. For many settlers, the ultimate mission is to drive Pals out of the West Bank. In order to accomplish this, they set about making their lives miserable, destroying their property and livelihood. Were Pals to sit passively (which the vast majority do, by the way)and never throw a rock, they'd still be attacked. What makes matters worse, offending settlers will not be punished- the Israeli govt has created an environment in whih this type of behavior is encouraged.
