    If Israel were truly serious about stopping "progroms" then all the hand wringing and exagerated "fears" of reprisal would be moot. The IDF and ShinBet have lots of experience to stop these Israeli "brown shirts"! How about taking a page out of the past when dealing with the Palestinians i.e. Surround the "settlement" at 2 or 3 in the morning call out on loud speakers for all males aged 14 to 45 to come out or face death, then hood them mark them with I.D. numbers and load them on buses to be interrogated, while the IDF goes house to house searching for "terrorist" weapons......the settlers of course will not be given this as their "price tag". That will be saved for Palestinian "reprisals" only.....PEACE EVER?
