    This terorist Teitel is not an individual operating alone, acting out of a crazed psychology. He is a zealous ideologue whose ideology, bolstered and watered by a tribalistic religious fanaticism that holds everyone unlike him or his tribe in contempt. Any Jew who exhibits compassion for the suffering of others is a tratitor who must be eliminated. He is not alone, make no mistake about it. He has sprung from a very fertile soil that has engendered hundreds of thousands like him, who admire him who teach their chilkdren to consider him a model. That mentality has been encouraged for decades by Israel and much of the zionist movement that is becoming more and more that they are above the law and that religous law supercedes civil law and that the presnce of non-Jews in Eretz Yisrael cannot be tolerated. They have declared the entire Palestinain population as pursuers out to kill all Jews and therefore the acts of goldstein and teitel are righteous, redemptive acts. Go ahead and take a survey and see how many of his ilk feel he is crazy or a terrorist. His only offense in their eyes is that he was perhaps too zealous but his heart was in the right place.
