    Israel is more than just the galil or the Kiryot and more than Gush Dan as well, you should visit, it really isn't far. This drive for equivalence is not only short-sighted it is downright false. Comparing Israelis carrying neshek in Judea and Samaria with gun toting arabs is naive at best and an open lie at worst. Aside from the fact that the IDF cannot be everywhere and part of defense is the consideration that locals have neshek to protect themselves when deploying there are a few more factors. a) no Israeli fears another carrying an M-16 b) no Israeli runs loose with his M-16 firing willy-nilly and killing people. You can count on One hand the number of times in the last 40 years that there was firing with intent to kill. c) Arabs know full well that a "settler" carrying neshek will not put in his clip and fire or threaten firing. You don't find "settlers" emptying a clip in the air "just because", there is NO equivalence here at all.
