    Once again, in case we forgot, we are reminded of how the orthodox work in concert with Palestinian terrorists to derail any possibility of Peace. I have to agree with some previous posts. Israel needs to give Palestinians control over some of these settlements and let the haredi negotiate their own safety with the PA and Hamas. It is time for rational Jews around the world to step up and say "not in our Israel". If they want to live in Palestinian controlled territory, let them live under their rules, just as Israeli arabs live under Israeli rule. Remember, these people are not terribly interested in the modern nation state of Israel that is capable of living amidst its real world neighbours. They are only interested in Moshiach and armageddon as their vision of biblical Israel. Jews must make a choice. Geo-politial reality vs. biblical theological adherence. Choice is pretty clear to me.
