Settler Deaths in the West Bank

I'm genuinely distressed to hear about the deaths of the four settlers in the West Bank. Apparently, Hamas executed the four in a well-planned commando operation.

Armed resistance is the right of any colonized people. But a clear distinction needs to be made between civilians and legitimate targets - like the Israeli army. I endorse attacks on military targets in the Occupied Territories (although I think the time for that is over), but I strongly protest any attack on civilians.

The talks are going to fail. This was wrong and pointless.
