UPDATE (December 18)
It has just come to my attention that in an op-ed sent around by Elyakim Ha'Etzni, he added at its beginning these words:
"This article is dedicated to those wonderful youth who, with selfless dedication and love of the Land of Israel, defended the "Peace House" in Hebron but not to those who attacked IDF soldiers and innocent Arabs nor those who damaged property and who vandalized the Arab cemetery and mosques."
My thoughts exactly.

Minister of Defense Ehud Barak acted as a commando and as a politician. Nothing less should have been expected. He also acted with gross negligence and so, once again, we are faced with a need to appoint a commission of inquiry to investigate what were the facts.
Just as at the start of the Second Intifada in September-October 2000, when the Arabs managed to place Barak up against the wall, almost at the stake, so too will he find himself, if our leaders act wisely, inthe same position.

The current campaign for protecting and assuring the continued Jewish possession of the Peace House is wrong.
And more than wrong, it is plain stupid.
No protest activity can ever succeed without a plan and without disciplined force. And good leaders.
The way things are going now, and the results - no matter who is at fault and how much the media is biased - are the proof, there has to be a serious rethink.
I hope that young boy lives and does so with full health. For his sake, I want to hear from his teachers, his Rabbis and all those who, supposedly, "are in charge":
What is now happening, and again, no matter how much enthusiasm and dedication and being convinced of the right and justness of the cause there is, even while being right you can lose.

Many people can become so one-dimensional.
For example, you say YESHA and either you get a very positive or a very negative reaction based on whether you think we Yesha residents are heroes or fools, whether Arabs have rights or what rights, etc.
But there is also a normal life out here. And "normal" means also traffic accidents. Some are caused by lousy driving. Some are caused by unavoidable cricumstances, others by rain or oil spills. And some by bad road infrastructure.
Here are pictures of a traffic accident on Friday along the Shiloh entrance road:
People need to be so careful. Including safety belts.
And if roads need to be improved, too sharp curves that need to be straightened out, then those in responsibility must be pressured to do their job.
