It wouldn't have taken much for him to turn around and lob one through a car window, Gd forbid. Maybe the nearby soldiers were waiting just for that, but I would have felt much more secure if as a preventative measure he had been arrested.
One of the things that bothered me was how he kept turning around to look at all of us, as if weighing his options to attack Jewish cars or not. On a personal note, I was perfectly safe in the bulletproof bus, but most everyone else was in a car, and for sure most cars did not have specially treated windows.
What do you think about this?
