    In the past the Israeli government has turned a blind eye to settlers who destroyed Palestinian olive groves and torched Palestinian homes and cars. This is not the way a democracy behaves and it's time that Netanyahu have his "Atalena" moment and decides once and for all that there is not Israeli law as well as Settler law. There must be one law for everyone. Israelis cannot continue to critcize the Arabs for dehumanizing them when they do the same thing to Arabs. Vigilante justice cannot be allowed to prevail in Israel. These settlers should be imprisoned or deported back to America. It's quite telling that there rarely are Sabra's that behave this way. It seems to be the Americans who move to Israel and who have less regard for the Arabs than do the Israelis who were born there. Most of the extremist settlers are Americans. They are, as the late Yitzchak Rabin described "an errant weed and blot against Zionism."
