    For the radicals to take on an Israeli military that has defeated Arab armies four times — and police on daily guard against Arab terrorism — seems to me a form of madness. Maybe in both senses, anger and insanity.

    Things are not so simple as presented in the article. The Israei poice arrested and harrased scores of jewish citizens over the last years- but never found the alleged attackersof arabs. This is a poliical conflict, not a leagal one.

    [email protected], they are not exactly “taking on” the military. The phrase “organizing a raid on an Israeli Army base” is later on explained as “broke in, rioted, blocked the entrance with rocks and burning tires, and damaged military vehicles.” In other words, typical OWS behavior. Occupy West Bank 🙂 . This is much more an illegal demonstration than the rebellion a first reading might suggest.

    Absolutely essential for Israel’s public image. Settlers have also been attacking random Palestinian civilians and Israeli activists.
