    Provoking an accident that claims lives as a consequence is inacceptable. All religions consider life as sacred, although extremists from all religions betray their own precepts far too often. But the "price tag" policy of the settlers is also inacceptable, in that it is not usually inflicted on Palestinians in retribution of something Palestinians, but other Jews have done : usually, it is to protest lawful forced evacuation of a settlement by the IDF - and the Palestinians are just collateral damage of an inside conflict between Jews. And when settlers attack Palestinian fields and orchards to steal their crops and / or destroy trees, or torch their mosques, what is it if not a pogrom as we ourselves had to suffer in the past ? That too is unacceptable, if only for the memory of our ancestors who similarly suffered. As has been wisely said : an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth... and the world will be peopled by toothless blind people.
