    Religious fanaticism is always dangerous, no matter what religion it occurs in, and even a rudimentary glance at world history would reveal that Christianity and Islam have fallen prey to fundamentalisms of their own far more frequently- and arguably with much more destructive effects- than Judaism. The “settlers” are fanatics, we all know that. Fortunately, however, they’ve limited their activities to a patch of desert roughly the size of New Jersey- unlike the Crusaders and Saracens, who attempted to conquer the whole world and came frighteningly close to succeeding. Read some history before you talk about “the source of all the problems” any group of people have to face.
