Twenty-eight years have passed since a few Jewish families rented an Arab hotel in downtown Hebron, moved in their kosher refrigerators and cookware to celebrate Passover and then refused to leave.

Jewish settlers staked out intersections Monday along the highway they use to travel south from Jerusalem and paid homage to the funeral cortege of a man shot by Palestinian snipers as he drove home the night before. "Another father dead," said Anitra Lehman, rocking her baby and shaking her head about the death of Tzahi Sasson. "These lands are all ours," continued the Maryland native. "We should send the Arabs out. Send them to their own countries and to their own places."

After three Jewish deaths in less than four months, Shmuel Ben-Ishai is more vigilant with his gun and adheres more closely to a passage in the Talmud. "The one who comes to kill you, make haste and kill him first," he quoted the passage of rabbinic commentary as saying. He spoke to a visitor as he sat at the wheel of his station wagon, gun ready, as a group of fellow Jewish settlers got off a bus near a Palestinian refugee camp.

Right-wing Israeli members of Parliament early today peacefully gave up their protest sit-in at an apartment in predominantly Arab Hebron on the occupied West Bank but vowed to appeal the military order evicting them to the Supreme Court. Four of the lawmakers began their demonstration last Thursday in an effort to force the national unity coalition government to revive the stalled Jewish settlement drive in areas captured by Israel after the 1967 Six-Day War.

President Bush rejected a proposed compromise on loan guarantees for Israel on Tuesday because it did not include a requirement that Israel halt all settlement activity in the disputed West Bank and Gaza Strip. The move appears to doom Jerusalem's chances of obtaining the $10 billion in loan guarantees that it needs to provide houses and jobs for Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet Union.

The scene on the enclosed porch of Mustafa Khamdan's house here in the rocky, West Samarian hills grew increasingly chaotic as the almost-toothless, 80-year-old patriarch described to a visiting reporter what he called an elaborate plot to steal his land for Jewish settlement. As word of the visitor's presence spread through this Arab village of 8,000 people, members of Khamdan's extended family showed up, along with several neighbors who had their own stories of alleged land fraud.
