    I wonder about the near complete absence of the daily settler depredations (abetted by Israeli soldiers and police) of Palestinians on the West Bank in this discussion. These incidents — daily by some accounts — have been going on for years and have increased in the last year, with U.S. reporting and editorial opinions in general readership publications and the big electronic media barely dealing with the situation in any meaningful way. It seems hard to believe that this reality had no influence on the ferocity the Hamas attack on southern Israel. To talk about the attack and all its political and humanitarian considerations without contending with this West Bank violence seems a singular exercise in tunnel vision. It makes a certain sense, since Moment approaches issues from a Jewish perspective. And maybe in the scheme of things to come, the West Bank is probably meaningless. Still, the absence of discussion on West Bank violence is tunnel vision nonetheless.
