here was a consistent
tone on editorial pages
around the country Feb.
26, the day after Baruch
Goldstein killed more than 40
Palestinians in a mosque in He-
bron: dismay, excoriation, fear
of escalating violence, appre-
hension about the future of the
Mideast peace talks.
There was a sameness to the
adjectives applied to Mr. Gold-
stein's deed: A "monstrous
crime" — New York Post. An
"unspeakable atrocity" —New
York Times. "One of the great-
est atrocities" in the struggle in
the Mideast — the Baltimore
Sun. A "barbaric act of almost
incomprehensible magnitude"

— The Philadelphia Inquirer.
And there also was a same-

strictions on the settlers' access
to Arab areas."

Both the Sun and the Wash-
ington Post made efforts to
state that Friday's violence had
not occurred in a vacuum.
"Between the Sept. 13 Israel-
PLO accord and the Hebron
massacre," stated the Sun, "24
Israelis were killed in shootings,
mostly by llamas, and 65 Pales-
tinians were killed by Israelis.
No one of these killings justified
another, no act of revenge did
anything but provoke more re-

ness to some of the proscriptions
offered for the routes that Is-
rael, Arabs, Palestinians and
the United States should follow
after the massacre:
• Israel must "crush" settler
vigilante operations in the West
Bank and put "militant settlers
under army or intelligence sur-
veillance." Possibly make "high-
ly sensitive sites like the
Hebron mosque ... subject to in-
ternational monitoring if Israel
— and a soon-to-be-established
Palestinian police force — can-
not protect worshipers . of all

context created by others who
were not deranged. The broad
context was one of an occupa-

and has been sustained by their
mutual inability to find a way
to live side by side ... Yesterday's
slaughter differs only in degree
from the violence that Israelis
and Palestinians have been
dealing to each other for
decades."
But perhaps it was the New
York Post and the Atlanta Con-
stitution that took the most di-
ametrically irreconcilable
stands.
"No one...," advised the Post,
"should think for a moment that
the crime in Hebron requires Is-
rael to make special concessions
— concessions to a sort that
might endanger the security of
the Jewish state. Israeli doves
