    From Ms. Hass['s usual and typically editorialized and subjective report we can glean only two things with certainty: 1. Stones were thrown at vehicles by students of the school; 2. An Israeli military court, abiding by the highest principles of jurisprudence, refused to convict this particular group of students because it could not be proven incontrovertibly that it was they who were the rock throwers. What a remarkable contrast to, for example, when two innocent Israelis drive into Palestinian territory and they are immediately taken to the police station where they are butchered like dogs and their captors hang their bodies out the window while gleefully displaying their bloodstained hands. Needless to say, Ms. Hass was absent that day, and her words of wisdom were nowhere to be seen.
