    The very sad part of this is that Jews have learned the lesson that terrorism is rewarded in Israel. In Israel, terrorists are responsible for deaths, injuries, and destruction of property--but they are rewarded with more land, more rights, and freedom from prosecution. Even when they are prosecuted, they are released in "prisoner swaps." Not so for law-abiding Israelis who try to protest against the government's ill-conceived laws. Those law-abiding Israelis are beaten, their land given away, their livelihood destroyed. They are kept from their homes, their families, and they are jailed. Unlike the arab terrorists who take hostages, our Jewish men and women don't get released in prisoner exchanges. So, what was the Israeli government expecting? When they reward terrorism, they get more terrorists. It is time that Israel started showing equality under the law. The Israeli government must stop rewarding terrorism.
