Wednesday Special: 15th anniversary of the Hebron massacre
In this special, we look at the Israeli settler movement, and some of its more extreme elements.  February 25th, 2009 marks the 15th anniversary of the Hebron massacre, in which 29 Palestinians praying in a mosque were gunned down by an Israeli settler named Baruch Goldstein, who was a follower of Rabbi Meir Kahane.  That massacre, which took place soon after the Oslo peace accords, which were supposed to bring peace, shattered the possibility of the peace process actually working.  Soon after the Hebron massacre, the first Palestinian suicide bomber entered Israel to kill Israeli civilians.

And since that 1994 attack, the Israeli expansion of settlements in the West Bank increased exponentially, with over 300,000 Israelis now living in new developments that the indigenous Palestinian population whose land was expropriated to build them.
