    West Bank violence

    The violence comes as two cars were torched and a wall daubed with the Star of David and the words 'Price Tag' in a Palestinian village in the West Bank.

    The phrase has become a slogan of militant Jewish settlers warning of revenge for any efforts to remove them from the occupied territory. Israeli police said they were investigating the incident. 

    Earlier this week, a West Bank mosque was vandalised in an attack that Palestinians have blamed on settlers. 

    Around half a million Jewish settlers live in the West Bank and Jerusalem, on land occupied by Israel during the 1967 war with its Arab neighbours.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
