Here we go again

Another tragic weekend in the occupied territories - Israeli Defense Force soldiers assasinate seven Palestinians, some of them accused murderers, others, in the popular lexicon, "collateral damage," and another participating in civil disobedience against five months of curfews; Islamic Jihad gunmen spray a communal dining hall in Otniel with automatic gunfire, killing four Israeli settlers. Western "liberal" media portrays the death of Israelis, at the end of a month including the deaths of fifty Palestinians, as an end to a period of "relative calm." Another win for the extremists on both sides, another loss for too many others.
