This is also posted on Shiloh Musings, but there I have pictures.  Arutz 7 has enough disturbing photos and videos of what transpired in Hebron.
How can the kids learn respect when the government treats them as enemies?

I grew up in America, in the 1950's, a very calm, optimistic, even boring time. It was pretty easy to teach us to respect authority, because in most places authority was benign.

Today's Israeli teens, especially those who try to follow the Torah, Jewish Law, see a very different government, military establishment.

Kids see things in black and white, and it looks very black.

The Israeli Government treats those who promote Jewish Rights in Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel, as enemies.

The government and military use force they wouldn't dare use against Arabs. The Israeli Judicial isn't interested in promoting even equal rights for Jews.
