So.... Completely.... Frustrating...

I don't get it. I'm Jewish. I have a solid understanding of the ultra-nationalist ideology that motivates some of the extremists. Yet, I'm absolutely dumbfounded by another Jewish terrorist attack against Arabs. Anyone think they can explain what motivates someone seemingly normal to randomly murder innocent people for the sake of land? And let's say Hamas retaliates. Is that going to stop Disengagement? No. It'll only lead to more killing, of people on both sides. These attacks, few as they are (and let's pray they remain that way) are just as morally reprehensible as Palestinian terrorist attacks.

But on a lighter note: "The Palestinian Authority issued a statement in response blaming Israel for not doing enough to prevent the attack." If the whole state thing doesn't work out, some guy in the Palestinian Authority PR office has a future in comedy.
