    As one who is a journalist, living in Efrat, and who also liaisons for other journalists who want to write about the settlements, this is old news. Unfortunately, many journalists who I have met or whose work I have read did/do not want to know or publish the truth, but prefer to consider the "liberals" as the anomaly, because it does not fit their agenda of promoting the view of "west bank setttlers" as violent. Having said that, Hirschhorn should take care that she doesn't fall into a different kind of stereotyping. The issue is more complex that "liberal and conservative." One can be a "liberal" and have supported civil rights in the U.S. in the '60's, and still believe that the Jewish people have a religious and historic bond and right to the land of Israel. (How would a liberal American Jew feel if he is told he is not permitted to live in Scarsdale?) She also needs to get a handle on termonology like "messianic" and delve into the deeper layers of the concept and the varied definitions. Best of luck.
