    I am very pro-Israel but very anti-settlers. The settlers are just a small notch above Hamas. They keep peace from happening. They even attack the Israeli police, violently. The sooner the Palestinians reject Hamas and the Jews reject the settlers and the crazy ultraorthodox welfare recipients, the sooner we can have peace in the Middle East.

      dp you have proof it's theirs? or is the only proof in 2000 year old book where some guy who created the earth and gave his people a dry, almost un-inhabitable sea of sand to call their own? You sir are the epitome of dumb and the true reason there is was in the middle-east.

      So called "proisraeli"- I am merely stating a fact that most of the religions in the middle east recognize as truth. That is accepted by Jews, Muslims and Christians. See it as a legal deed of ownership backed by historic evidence of claiming and living on the land if you are secular (like you) – or see it as a God given right if you are religious (like me), either way Israel belongs to the Jews. So your argument on bigotry has no substance. – Second, let me remind you that the Jewish bible recognizes the right of other religions to exist and tolerates people on the Holy Land that are not Jewish – it opposed to missionarizing – so your argument on religion destroying peace does not apply to judaism.....not so for others

    To CNN:

    Please fun the following AP story so you won't have offend anyone in your newsroom. Sorry Rick and Soladaddy...

    JERUSALEM – A Palestinian gunman opened fire Tuesday on an Israeli vehicle in the West Bank and killed four passengers on the eve of a new round of Mideast peace talks in Washington. The Islamic militant Hamas praised the shooting.

    ANY western government, if it were in the shoes of the Israeli government, would have destroyed Hebron altogether (us the first)...maybe Israel should be more assertive?

    The best way to resolve this conflict is by forming one democratic secular country in all Palestine in which Israeli and Palestinians will have equal right and responsibilities.

      This will never happen in a million years. Palestinians as well as Arabs have been brainwashed to a point of no return to have the Jewish state. Don't kid yourself.

    Israel is a JEWISH land – nothing else. It is not a secular or a muslim land or anything else. Period.

    To be perfectly clear....
    4 Israeli Civiliants were murdered by a Palestinian. No cover up by CNN can erase the fact.
    600,000 palestinians left there houses in the 48 war so get out of the way of the Aran armies that were supposed to wipe out Israel. Tough luck, let the Arab brothers take care of them.
    When Israel says they want to have a Jewish State side by side with a Palestinian state, the Arabs call this a pre-condition and say they have never agreed to allow a JEWISH state !! Some peace partners. The day the Arabs truely want peace, there will be but that will never happen.

      This is indeed the root cause of the conflict. Muslims not recognizing the Jewish nature of the land. Hardly any pre-condition they need to accept reality. No negotiation is possible if they even think it's a precondition and not a matter of fact. That the world believes (does it really???) that negotiations make sense when the Arab League is telling this kind of garbage is cruel. "Land for peace" means in their crooked minds "ALL the land for peace". Shame on the world for not calling on the Arab countries to be more civilized.

    Who are these horrible people writing here who cannot recognize that four people, including a pregnant woman, were brutally shot and murdered. Have you no heart? Just because others were killed in the past does not mean that new killings are in any way justified or something to not be mourned. It is truly disgusting to see those of you who keep a mental tally of those killed on both sides of this argument as if this is a game. These are peoples' lives that were lost today. Whether Arab or Israeli, dark or light skinned, these poor souls deserve our respect.

    @ alex, yes we Indians have a right for the goverment to pay land taxes to us or hand it back over because it is our land, our country. That's the point. We & the Jews were run out and they tried to exterminate us. The U.S. gov. is guilty of Genocied/Murder as are you and your kind.
