NPR's Eric Weiner reports from the West Bank on the second day of pitched battles between Palestinian policemen and Israeli soldiers that have killed at least 30 Palesitnians and 11 Israelis. The violent demonstrations that have occurred in virtually every city on the West Bank and in Gaza forced Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to cut short a European visit and fly home to proclaim a state of emergency in the territories.
