  1. There exists a delicate balance between the religious right and the secular left in Israel.
    Over the years the religious right has acquired benifits and political influence beyond their numbers.
    Over zealous investigation of “price tag” attacks would cause resentment and a backlash from within the entitled right
    that would exacerbate the tensions between religious and secular Jews in Israel.
    No Jew wants to open that Pandora box.

  2. The resort to violence must be the sole discretion of the State, and never it’s citizens.

    I wholly agree that settler violence and ‘price tags’ must both be ruthlessly suppressed by the organs of the State.

  3. May someone remind Carmi Gilon, who was the head of the Shin Bet during the Rabin assassination, that “There’s no such thing as ‘can’t do’ in the Shin Bet, just ‘don’t want.”

    Price tag, in the form being preformed today as an act of cowardliness.

  4. Israel police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says it’s just hooliganism. One cannot equate these squatter attacks as terrorism.

    “Attacks by extremist Israeli settlers against Palestinian residents, property, and places of worship in the West Bank continued and were largely unprosecuted,” the State Department report said, citing UN and NGO data.

  5. please scream louder as loudest as you can and get as many as you can get to scream it loudest. we the abhorrent majority that has been eviscerated by a tiny population have nothing better than to call this a RACIST COUNTRY, no shred of democracy, civility or vestige of education (not in the studying sense) is left. I am sick to my stomach to hear what goes for politics. so low as to go kiss putin’s ring rather than to stand by the country that contributes most children to the israeli army, UKRAINE. This is the result of Adelson/Aipac nurturing.

  6. Off topic, but I think you should jump in on the discussion about the Nahum Barnea interview with some unnamed American official.


    There’ve been a couple of pieces at Mondoweiss, Jerome Slater’s blog, Mitchell Plitnick,and probably some others. They have slightly different takes. I found the Slater/Plitnick pieces the most interesting. For me the real point would be to urge our mainstream press to cover it, as it’s a very revealing interview in all kinds of ways.

    1. Thanks for the links. I read the first reference of the eye-catcher by Larry Derfner @972+
      ○ U.S. post-mortem on peace talks: Israel killed them

      Earlier note by RS: I’m delighted that The Nation has republished, Israel-Palestine: Kerry’s Peace Talks Hit the Separation Wall, which I wrote for Foreign Policy in Focus, on the death of the U.S. brokered Israel-Palestine peace talks.
