    There will not be any retribution or penalty imposed for this action. The settlers' best friend is the Prime Minister, who spends much time encouraging this sort of behavior by his own actions, and the settlers' second best friend is the foreign minister in waiting. Why should they worry? For most of the rest of humanity, many of us - Jew or Gentile - admire and respect what a small country, with a great deal of determination and effort, and in the face of many challenges, difficulties and threats, has been able to accomplish. We sincerely wish you well - but we CANNOT understand why you allow your government to paint you further and further into a diplomatic corner, and entrench yourselves further and further into international isolation. You cannot hide under the "security blanket" forever - while there continues to be a real world out there. Eventually you, as the FAR stronger party, are going to HAVE to reach out to the Palestinians, and not just continue to steal land from them and pulverize them when their objections overflow into violence. There is a large number of eminent Jewish thinkers who, over many centuries, have established that violence is NEVER the long term answer, and while the "other side" is actually in many ways more guilty than you, YOU have to take a REAL INITIATIVE. Good luck Israel and Israelis - you are going to need it
