    Margie, If I am not mistaken, I believe you were attempting to argue that the lynching of two IDF soldiers in Ramallah back in 2002 somehow justifies the ongoing Israeli security blanket placed on ALL Palestinian civillians, 99.99% of them having no involvement at all in violence. I believe you attempted to isolate the lynching from the overall situation where Israel and Palestinians were involved in a lot of brutal behavior towards each other. I think you may have referred to these lynchers (criminal and barbaric as they were) as hyenas? Now, we both know, if I referred to a Jewish settler who beats a misc Arab kid, a hyena, you would be screaming anti-semetism pretty loud, wouldn't you? Until Israel shows a willingness to get serious about withdrawing from the West Bank, I stand by statement: they are difficult and greedy.
