Last Thursday, August 3, Israeli army deserter Eden Nantanzade shot dead four Israeli Arabs, injured at least 12, aboard a bus in Shfaram Thursday, Aug. 4. The Israeli government condemned the act and awarded the bereaved families and injured victims the state benefits due victims of Palestinian terror.

Israeli Arab leaders in emergency meeting in Nazareth called for mass protests next Saturday, will bring complaints of discrimination before international organizations, foreign embassies and the UN. They demand that all "settlers" be disarmed forthwith.

The Israeli chief of staff has ordered an inquiry to find out why Natnazade had not been detained and his weapon impounded although he had been AWOL 77 days by the time of the murder.

His parents repeatedly appealed to the authorities to detain and disarm him, disclosing their son had fallen in with an extremist fringe group in Tapuach on the West Bank. Three of its members have since been arrested
