Mr. Ben Gurion, I share your frustration with the outrages in Hebron. As a child, I lived in the segregated south. I understood that the Ku Klux Klan and the "Citizen's Councils" were able to engage in terrorism and even murder because the local and state police simply avoided doing anything. It was not uncommon for courts to dismiss what cases the police were forced by circumstances to file, and juries could be trusted by the Klan to fail to return a finding in the rest. In simple terms, the terrorism, while not state sponsored (in most cases), was state sanctioned. It is clear that the same is the case in Hebron. Ultimately the Settlers in Hebron are a threat to Israel. And, ultimately, any democracy which allows one group of citizens to engage in theft, terrorism and even murder against any resident that government is legally responsible to protect, is a democracy with a death wish. The foremost requirement for democracy is respect for, and observance of, the rule of law.
