HEBRON, Israeli-Occupied West Bank -- On most days this scruffy city witnesses a scene straight from a "High Noon" cowboy cliche.A small gang of gunmen, nonchalantly thumbing their weapons, swaggers through the center of town. They bear a dare-you invitation to trouble and sometimes kick over carts or bully shopkeepers in search of a challenge. Along their route, shutters slam shut and frightened residents peer from behind quickly locked doors.In this daily drama, the Jewish settlers who stroll with their automatic weapons willingly admit they want to foster fear in the hearts of the Arab residents of Hebron.

HEBRON, West Bank - Israel's army re-entered this divided city yesterday in the first stage of what officials warned would be forceful retaliation for an ambush by Palestinian gunmen Friday who killed 12 Israeli soldiers and police. By last night, soldiers had detained 43 Palestinians, blindfolded them and taken them away for questioning as dozens of armored personnel carriers massed on the city's outskirts. Three Palestinian gunmen also were killed in the gunbattle Friday night, and 15 Israelis were injured, four of them seriously.

In 1929, Arab rioters killed some 60 Jews in Hebron. The event is etched in Israeli consciousness. Its remembrance forms part of Israeli nationalism. After partition in 1948, Hebron was controlled by Jordan, the ethnic cleansing complete. To roll it back, ardent Zionists founded Kiryat Arba and other settlements near Hebron and the reputed Cave of Abraham, after Israel occupied the West Bank in 1967.The slaughter of Arab Muslim worshipers at the Cave of Abraham by the American-Israeli Baruch Goldstein last Friday was a comparable atrocity.

HEBRON, West Bank -- The boys of Hebron fly their kites amid the stones of the dead.In the cemetery of this troubled West Bank city, Antar Bardewi tugs on the string of a kite he has fashioned from a plastic bag, hand-lashed sticks and a tail of tattered rags. He leaps from one burial crypt to the next, coaxing the stubborn kite higher into the sky. He is a young man of 15 amusing himself with a child's toy.Beyond the cemetery wall, other young men -- some not much older than Antar -- lean into the windows of cars and ask the Palestinian drivers for their papers.

KIRYAT ARBA, Occupied West Bank -- "He was a traitor," settler Arieh Dolinsky said yesterday of his slain prime minister, Yitzhak Rabin."I wouldn't be sorry if he would die a natural death," he said. Then he added, "But it was wrong to shoot him."Mr. Dolinsky, 47, expressed the feelings of many residents of this community. Kiryat Arba is perched on a hill overlooking the ancient West Bank city of Hebron. It is also one of the most militant Jewish settlements in the parts of the West Bank that Israel is about to share with the Palestinian authority, under an agreement Mr. Rabin signed with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

It is time for Israel to crack down on armed fanatic settlers in the West Bank and Gaza, who do not need to live there and who declare themselves a law unto themselves and who dedicate their efforts to destroy the Israel-Palestinian agreement no matter how many Israelis and Palestinians and people the world over fervently pray that peace prevails.Then it is necessary for Israelis and Palestinians to stick to their path to peace and not let policy be dictated by terrorists, be they terrorists from Hamas among Muslim Palestinians or from the Kach movement of the late American Meir Kahane and the Kiryat Arba settlement among Jewish Israelis.

JERUSALEM -- A radical Jewish group claimed that its members shot and killed a Palestinian yesterday, suggesting re-emergence of the violent underground movement that has long worried Israeli authorities.Five men dressed as Israeli soldiers broke into several Palestinian homes near Hebron, rousted the residents, tied up an elderly man and shot to death his son about 1 a.m., according to police reports.The army said none of its soldiers was in the area.Later yesterday, a group called Eyal, which means "ram" in Hebrew and is an acronym for "Fighting Jewish Organization," claimed responsibility for the killing.

JERUSALEM -- As the mass killer of Muslim worshipers was buried yesterday with a rabbi's racist praise, Israel moved to clamp down on Jewish extremists.The government announced that it will arrest, disarm and restrict the movement of some of the most extreme right-wing Jewish settlers. And it promised to release about 800 Palestinian prisoners.But even as a unanimous Cabinet approved the measures, a eulogizer at the funeral ceremony for Baruch Goldstein told several hundred persons gathered there that the killer had offered "a cure" for a sick Israel.

JERUSALEM -- Israeli and Palestinian leaders agreed yesterday to speed up negotiations on expanding Palestinian self-rule throughout the West Bank, and Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin said Israel will ease its closure of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.The reported progress comes one week after a summit between Mr. Rabin and Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat produced nothing more than mutual recriminations about the deadlock in their negotiations.After last week's session, Israeli and Palestinian commentators were declaring the Israeli-Palestinian peace accord dead and predicting the collapse of Mr. Rabin's government.
