I don't understand the settlers. They strive to improve their image worldwide. Putting enormous effort to prove that they are just normal people trying to live peacefully. And then they burn a mosque... Good luck with proving your point and defending your position. You've just proven to 1.5 billion people that there is no reasoning with you, and to the entire world that you are just another rabid pack of islamophobes. No matter how moderate a Muslim may be, burn our place of worship and all will look at you the same, no matter if they are most liberal or most radical. Just like if someone were to burn a synagogue, they would be viewed as extreme anti-semites by everyone. But the worst part is that the actions of these few deluded zealots reflect on the entire Israeli society, on those who have nothing to do with this embarrassing land theft that is ongoing in the West Bank.
