The New Yorker: Fact: “?Hebron is ours,? she said. ?Why shouldn?t he play??

?Because he could get killed,? I said.

?There?s a bullet out there for each one of us,? she said. ?But you can always die. At least his death here would sanctify God?s name.?

Cohen and other settlers say that they are obliged to fulfill God?s command that Jews settle the land of Israel. But there are safer places to live than King David Street in Hebron. I asked Cohen how she reconciled her decision to settle here with an even greater imperative of Judaism, the saving of lives?in this case, those of her children. “
