Thanks Condi! Thanks Barak! Thanks Olmert!
Next time you suggest something to do for the purpose of "peace," I want you to stay in a tent with no guards in the community affected. If you aren't willing to do that, don't suggest it.

(IsraelNN.com) Arab terrorists shot and wounded two who were hiking between the Jewish communities of Nevei Tzuf and Nachliel Friday afternoon. They suffered bullet wounds in the back and stomach, and a third person escaped without serious injuries and notified authorities.
Rescue teams administered first aid at the scene, and an army helicopter flew the victims to the Sheba Hospital at Tel HaShomer Medical Center in Tel Aviv. Medics encountered delays because the wounded were in a hard to access location. IDF soldiers are searching for the terrorists.
Area residents and leaders have warned that that the recent "good will measures" implemented by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Ehud Barak that involved easing travel restrictions and removing roadblocks in Judea and Samaria would lead to an increase in terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians.
Spokesmen for the nationalist Jewish Front organization blamed Defense Minister Barak for the shooting, noting that he ordered the lifting of travel barriers for Arabs in the area. "The time has come for the Defense Minster to worry about the security of Jews and not the quality of life for Arabs," the Jewish Front stated.
