"Terror Attack On Passover Eve In Israel" should be "Terror Attack On Passover Eve in the West Bank"

This city is one of the most violent areas in the country. It's sad for the people who got shot driving in this area but one needs to put it in perspective of where this town sits in reference to the rest of the country. The Arab to Jew scale is nearly 400:1. If Israel is going to set limits on where Arabs can travel, then they should do the same where Israelis can travel especially on religious holidays.

The West Bank is not a separate country from Israel completely at this time.

The separation wall has already been built and that area is far inside the contested territory. It takes a high amount of chutzpah to allow religious Jews in the high 100's to build towns in the middle of an area populated by Arabs in the low 100,000s, build a highway on top of that from Be'er Sheva to Jerusalem right through the middle of Hebron (because it shortens drive time) and expect 100% safety. There is a reason most IDF soldiers dread being posted in this region as much as they dreaded being posted far inside Gaza before 2005. What area do you think most of the violent Arab photos come from??

If the Palestinian Arabs don't respect their own holidays here (I'm in Israel as I'm typing this), why would one expect them to respect the ones of Jews? There are certain roads that go on high alert for a reason. And for most of the year these roads are relatively safe, but not now on certain days of the year. I'm here and I drive here. I bring my common sense with me at all times.

Although there is a separation wall, the West Bank is not its own country completely separated from Israel.
