Religious school or terrorist training centre? More on Mercaz HaRav

Further to my post about the murders at the Jerusalem yeshiva, here's an interesting piece (from the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign's site) on the history and character of the Mercaz HaRav yeshiva and its relationship with the illegal "settler" movement. While it doesn't make the murders any less murderous, it does provide a perspective lacking in most reports of the killings (certainly in the British media).
