  1. The checkpoints were just eased in honor of X-mas. #1, you bring up a good point. If this is what happens from just easing up on checkpoints, imagine what will happen if they now release hundreds of terrorists.

  2. I know this would never happen but the following message should be sent to the arab captitols and the “Palestinian” “Leadership” for every Jew that is attacked in Eretz Israel, the Army will take one square mile of territory back, tanks and all. The land will be immediately annexed and settlement encouraged.
