    Didn't need a retinue of guns and armored cars. It's also possible, Brad, that they were throwing stones at the soldiers, or the PA police. In which case, as in targeted killings, but less horrendous, I'm sure you'll agree, Rabbi Metzger was potentially collateral damage. Our army and the PA police failed the village of Yasouf, that is clear. Can anyone sneak into Kedumim or Tapuah in the dead of night without security picking it up? The parallel with Kristallnacht must have been really great for the residents to hear. But I imagine that they would have preferred to hear that unlike on Kristallnacht, the forces of order would be on the alert to defend them and all West Bank villages that have mosques in them henceforth, against thuggery, including settlers bent on exacting their "price tag" by profaning their places of worship. Let's see if anyone is arrested for the crime. That will be the test. We are said to have such good trackers....
