As Jihad Watch notes, the latest shooting of a civilian in Israel comes after the Israeli army removed 100 roadblocks in the West Bank. This came in addition to the nearly 150 roadblocks dismantled since Netanyahu came to power. As a result, housing prices increased “hundreds of percent,” something the Palestinians living there should be mightily thankful for. Given that financial incentive, you’d think they’d want to keep the peace so such roadblocks aren’t created once more.
Well, you’d think wrong. The latest shooting in the area of the Kida settlement is the fourth in the past four months:
“This attack is a direct result of the removal of roadblocks. It’s only by some miracle that the outcome of these attacks has been no worse than injuries, but you cannot base security policies on miracles.” –Ynet News quoting Binyamin Council Head Avi Roeh.
