NPR's Mike Shuster reports that the United States is alarmed at the escalating fighting in the West Bank and Gaza and is calling on all sides in the clashes not to take "unduly provocative action." US officials are surprised at the speed and level of the violence and are afraid it is endangering the Middle East peace process that they thought was slowly moving ahead.
