If Israel thinks that the west bank belongs to them, in part or in whole, why not annex that part? Why is Israel's action so often the opposite of Israel's words? These bus hijackers were the most soft hearted "terrorists" imaginable. They killed nobody and they stopped the bus to let a pregnant woman off. The lesson for would be "terrorists" is to pull the trigger. Action speaks louder than words.
