Jews with guns

An Israeli soldier, background, patrols the Israeli controlled part of the southern West Bank city of Hebron as an armed Jewish settler walks past following a palestinian militant's attack, Wednesday , Oct. 22, 2003. The gunman wounded two Israeli settler security guards at Tel Romeida, a tiny heavily guarded Jewish enclave in this tense West Bank city before being shot dead, Jewish settlers and the army said. Some 400 Jewish settlers live in enclaves in the center of Hebron, surrounded by 130,000 Palestinians. (AP Photo/Oded Balilty)
