So long as the Israelis and Palestinians of this city remain guilty of indifference and fail to seek understanding beyond their walls, Hebron's future, like its past, will remain mired in constant struggle.
I know Israel acts very improperly sometimes, but make up your mind already. Either it's the worst of humanity or the fog of war. Don't you understand that discourse about this conflict has no place for nuance and reappraisal?

You're willing to give up life and limb for your belief's and then along comes a bunch of old hippies who swear all you really want is to be a fry chef at McDonalds. Religious people just can't catch a break.
The right wing Israeli government is in bad shape right now. At least that's what a close look at the political arena reveals. The Palestinian leadership isn't looking too great right now, either though.
