    You quote particular cases. I spoke to a soldier once about stone throwing. This is what he told me: The media call them "stones". They could be boulders or little stones. They could be dropped on your head from a height. If you have them thrown all day and they threaten your life you might give a warning and then defend yourself. Honestly. I don't know the truth of every story. About the West Bank. I was really pleased to think we would give up the west bank and break up the settlements, like in Gaza. I feel no sentiments for settlements. But now that they are throwing rockets at the south of the country from Gaza, I see that they will do the same thing from the West Bank and the whole country won't be able to function freely. I'm not against Palestinians in the least. I have respect for every person as an individual. But I think they use the wrong behaviour to try to force Israel's hand.
