    I am a "settler" with right-of-center political views, and it is not often that I agree with Bradley Burston. But I heartily agree with his point here. I think it is specifically those of us who feel strongly that the Israeli presence in Judea and Samaria ought to continue (whether for security reasons or for religious reasons) who have the most responsibility to prove that it can, in fact, be done in a humanitarian way. I do still think that security always has to come first. For example, I would not advocate the removal of a single checkpoint that is necessary for security, even though the checkpoints do impose some hardship on innoccent people. But are we doing everything we can do without compromising security to make sure that the inconvenience to people who are just trying to go about their daily lives is minimized? I'm afraid that we are not, and stories such as this sad one illustrate that point.
