Jewish terrorism threat grows in West Bank

Jewish terrorism grows in West BankThe Israeli military, already bracing for what could be the most devastating war in the Middle East, is also girding for a looming confrontation with Jewish extremists, mainly hard-liners from the Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Extremists from ultra-Orthodox settler groups, who say God gave the region to the children of Abraham for all time, have been increasingly active in recent months.

This has taken place as the United States sought to pressure the Israeli government to relinquish the West Bank, or a large portion of it, as part of a peace deal with the Palestinians.

The smoldering crisis escalated sharply Dec. 12 when a mob of angry settlers stormed a regional military base near the Arab city of Qalqilya, stoned the brigade commander and his deputy and burned army trucks.

TVNL Comment:  Still, every elected official in the US has to declare unwavering loyalty to the State of Israel in order to stay in office. That means absolutely NO criticism of any act by any Israeli against any one, anywhere, any time.  Think about that.
