Palestinians hurl rocks in a Jerusalem suburb.

right thing, and they treat
him like a criminal," the
man said. Some of the diners
vocally disagreed, but others
supported this view.
"As far as I'm concerned,
he acted like a real man,"
said a young woman.
Members of an Israeli
television crew at the Asaf
Harofe Hospital got into an
angry argument with fami-
ly members of the wounded.
According to press reports, a
relative of one of the injured
Arabs shouted at the crew to
leave them alone.
"What are you yelling for;
this isn't a mosque," an
Israeli crewman responded.
When a bystander explained
that the agitated Arab had
lost a cousin in the attack,
the television crewman was
unmoved.
"And what about the at-
tack on bus 405?" he
demanded. "Jews were
killed then. I didn't hear him
hollering about that."
Despite the ugly outbursts
of hatred on both sides,
many Jews and Arabs called
for moderation and under-
standing.
"Confrontation will lead to
disaster," said Ali Yechya,
an Arab teacher from the
Galilee "There are two
peoples here, and we have to
live together. There is simp-
ly no other choice."
This sentiment was echoed
by Israeli political leaders,
who denounced the murder
as a senseless act of violence,
and called on Israeli Arabs
— and those in the occupied
territories as well — to show
restraint.

Thus far the killer, Ami
Popper, has expressed no
remorse for his act, which he
claims was in revenge for
having been raped by an
Arab worker eight years
ago. Police are investigating
the story, but they have also
noted that Popper has a his-
tory of mental instability,
and was discharged from the

expression of the
ongoing, and
growing, adoption
of Intifada norms
by some sectors of
the Israeli Arab
population."

army after having re-
portedly fired shots at his
commanding officer.
Chaim Popper, the father
of the gunman, has
characterized the murder as
"an act of insanity," and
apologized to the families of
the dead and wounded. The
elder Popper, who described
himself as a Labor Party
supporter, said that his son
had no political views and
had never expressed any
animosity toward Arabs.
"All my son ever wanted to
do was to have a good time,"
he said. "I just don't under-
stand how this could have
happened."
