14. Here's some prophetic words of advice...from a Rabbi!
from a news report at Al-Jeezera:

Rabbis attacked by armed settlers
By Shaista Aziz

Tuesday 28 October 2003, 10:59 Makka Time, 7:59 GMT

A group of rabbis from a peace group in Israel have been attacked by armed settlers.
Rabbis from the peace group Rabbis for Human Rights (RHR) were attacked by five armed settlers. Some of the men had their faces covered when they threatened to attack the rabbis with clubs.


"Rabbi Ascherman describes the settlers at Mitzpeh Yitzar as ''fanatical and violent''.
He told that he found it disturbing that the children of the original wave of settlers were more violent and hard-line than their parent's generation.
''It's very sad, the fist wave of settlers have brought their children up to hate. They have nothing but contempt for Palestinians and for Jews like me.
"The parents have created monsters that are out of control, in some instances they are even turning on their own parents''....

Maybe we should re-consider tolerance of 'religious' freedom
