Mr. "Katz". No antonement is necessary for protecting the lives of one's self, one's family or one's Country. Far more Arabs/Muslims are killed by their own in any given day throughout the Arab/Muslim world than Israel kills in any given year. Beheadings, stonings, dismemberments, throwing off of roofs, suicide bombings...these are virtually forms of 'sport' throughout the Arab/Muslim world, where human life has no more value than an eggplant. When the so-called "Palestinians" (no such people or nationality, of course) decide to stop attacking Israel, and drop their WRITTEN committment to the destruction of Israel, any/all killings of "Palestinians" will immediately cease. Until then, it's kill or be killed. And no 'atonement' is required.
