A child sits next to a shack demolished by Israeli bulldozers in the village of Fasayil in the occupied West Bank’s Jordan Valley on 10 February.
Last autumn, when word came that the unpaved road to al-Hadidiya would be repaired, villagers in this Jordan Valley herding community looked forward to a winter of less hardship.
Now, even when the rains arrived and turned the track into muck, supplies could get through, children could walk to school and the sick could reach clinics.
"I can't tell you how happy we all were," said Khadijeh Bsharat, a widow with 11 children, who was interviewed by the Israeli human rights group B'Tselem. "We said to each other that life would be better, and we would be able to get from place to place in summer and winter."
Residents began working on the road, leveling ruts and spreading gravel over the surface. Although Israeli army officials had issued a stop work order on 15 November, an attorney had won an injunction, and the work, supported by aid from donors, went forward.
Nevertheless, Israeli bulldozers arrived before dawn on 25 November and began to destroy what had been accomplished, piling gravel in heaps.
"The bulldozers began raking up the road," said Bsharat, "taking our hopes with it."
Although a member of the Bedouin regional council persuaded the crews to leave after an hour, a full 400 meters had become impassable again.
Now, it seemed to Bsharat, her children could not come to visit her, and sick members of the community would continue to have to ride for help in a tractor or on the back of a donkey.
To add to the villagers' dismay, the crews returned the next day to tear down tents, animal shelters, a small silo, a brick oven and even a dovecote, crushing pigeon chicks in the process.
Seven of the demolished structures had been donated by humanitarian groups. Only a small two-person tent remained for a community of nearly 100.
The assault on al-Hadidiya loomed large in the lives of the struggling villagers, but it was a routine affair in the occupied West Bank. The Civil Administration, an Israeli military body that oversees the management of the West Bank, frequently issues demolition orders — for construction work carried out without permits that are rarely tendered, or as punitive measures against those where family members have been deemed a security threat. And demolitions are carried out often seemingly at random.
The United Nations monitoring group OCHA has reported that the Israeli army demolished 447 buildings or structures in Area C of the West Bank in 2015. Area C, a zone designated by the 1993 Oslo accords, covers more than 60 percent of the West Bank and is under full Israeli control.
These structures included the tents and animal shelters of al-Hadidiya.
A further 74 structures were destroyed in East Jerusalem last year.
Israeli law as pretext.
This is the face of occupation rarely seen, the attacks on innocents such as the widow Bsharat. No one is accusing these victims of terrorism; Israeli law provides the pretext here.
Israel has designated much land off limits to building in Area C. Where it is allowed, the authorities require building permits, which are almost impossible to get. Palestinians, desperate to provide for their families, thus build without them and hope for the best. Their hopes are often dashed.
OCHA field reports indicate that during 2015, the Israeli army destroyed some 170 housing units in Area C and East Jerusalem, along with shops and other commercial facilities. Israel razed orchards, burned wheat fields and demolished cisterns, wells, an elementary school (donor built), a greenhouse, a plant nursery, workshops, stores, outdoor kitchens, latrines, rest shelters and more.
Sometimes the crews carried away confiscated items: three sheep and an iron gate from the Jabal al-Mukabir neighborhood of East Jerusalem, a number of solar panels, mobile latrines, olive tree saplings, tractors, tools and, in Nablus, four buses (later returned).
Soldiers took a donkey from children in Jenin. They took a forklift from the village of Husan, four water pumps from Khirbet al-Deir in the Jordan Valley and all the plants from a nursery south of Bethlehem.
Each action represented dashed hopes. Families and communities had often worked on a project for months or years only to see it lying in ruins after the bulldozers arrived.
Villagers of Khirbet Yarza spent three years and more than $11,000 building a 1,000 meter fence around their olive groves only to find it demolished under Israeli bulldozers on New Year's Day 2015.
Israel insists that those handed demolition orders pay the costs of the demolitions. Yet internal OCHA documents that I have seen show that several families chose to demolish their own homes or new additions to their homes in order to avoid the cost of paying for wrecking crews.
A family in Beit Hanina, part of East Jerusalem, destroyed their home of 17 years after losing a battle in the courts. Another family in Jerusalem's Old City self-demolished a bathroom they had built in 2009.
Deprived of income
Israeli army units tore down tents and simple shelters for animals, they confiscated and destroyed prefab housing units, and they also razed substantial structures. Among them were a three-story commercial building near Qalandiya, originally built in 1971 and renovated in 2013 and a brick factory near Jenin.
Untold stories of loss haunt these reports from the field — the four vegetable stalls razed near Jericho last May, for instance. It took next to no time to destroy these humble structures that provided support for 11 adults and 15 children. Crews also confiscated or damaged 500 boxes of vegetables in the process.
In Jalameh, near Jenin, the demolition men tore up a stand for selling falafel and another used as a taxi call service. A third, selling hot drinks, was confiscated. "All these structures are main sources of income for the families," an OCHA field report stated.
Many of the buildings and items destroyed were donated by outside agencies, such as the European Union and the International Committee of the Red Cross to compensate for earlier demolitions.
These donors frequently register complaints with Israel. At one point the Red Cross declared that it would no longer provide tents because the army destroyed them as soon as they arrived. But the destruction continues.
The demolitions of 2015 displaced more than 600 people. They also left many animals without shelter.
Overall, in 2015, the military destroyed about 150 animal shelters, affecting thousands of sheep and other livestock. Israel also demolished water tanks, ponds, grazing fields and sheds for storing fodder.
Some animals died as heavy machinery turned shelters into a chaos of falling rubble.
Gaza, of course, was not spared destruction, even if Israeli wrecking crews don't have the same kind of access there as they do for the West Bank.
In late December, for instance, Israeli aircraft made several sorties to spray herbicides on 421 acres of peas, beans, spinach and parsley in Gaza. The military said it had destroyed the crops to "prevent the use of the area for destructive purposes."
Driving Palestinians out
In the West Bank, Israel appears determined to drive Palestinians out of Area C. It has made some progress in this endeavor. At one time, residents of Jordan Valley herding communities lived in stone houses; now they are hard pressed to hang onto their donated tents.
The mainstream media are complicit in ignoring this reality and quick to quote Israeli officials when they claim to be making efforts on behalf of the Palestinian economy.
Thus, The New York Times, without a hint of irony, quoted Israeli minister Yuval Steinitz's comment to reporters last November: "We always agree to confidence-building measures with the Palestinians and to build their economy."
Two Israeli officers were lightly hurt Friday after a young Palestinian stabbed them in the Old City's Damascus Gate; Al Jazeera video shows what happens in the minutes after the attack.
Documentation of a Friday stabbing attack at Jerusalem's Old City in which two Border Police officers were lightly wounded shows that the assailant was shot many times by Israeli officers, even after he already lay on the ground, before succumbing to his wounds.
The attacker, 20-year-old Mohammad Abu Khalaf from Kafr Aqab in East Jerusalem, arrived at the Damascus Gate where he was checked by a Border Police force stationed there. According to assessments, he equipped himself with a knife in the Old City and then returned to the gate to attack the security forces. Upon his return, he charged one of the offices with the knife and stabbed him in the head.
"I managed to push him off and moved aside so the other officers could shoot him," he said. Another officer began wrestling Abu Khalaf and sustained a wound to his hand. At this stage, policemen managed to shoot him and the Palestinian fell to the ground.
A television crew from Al Jazeera was present at the scene and filmed the subsequent shooting. In the video, the officers can be seen firing a number of bullets at Abu Khalaf. The shooting continues for a number of seconds, and the officers can be seen shooting at their attacker even after he is on the ground. A 50-year-old Palestinian woman who was nearby was lightly wounded after being hit by errant fire.

Border Police commander Deputy Commissioner Yaakov Shabtai praised the officers: "You acted with bravery and I salute you. I am proud of your professionalism. The speed of your response and its accuracy are what ended this terror attack within seconds."
On Saturday, a Palestinian youth was arrested in the Old City's Damascus Gate after attempting to stab a police officer. No one was injured in the incident, which began when the forces approached the 18-year-old, who then pulled a knife and was immediately overtaken and arrested.

WE NEED TO STOP THE PUPPET LEADER OF OUR EX DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY TOGETHER WE CAN
The Israeli parliament, the Knesset, has given overwhelming support to a new law proposed by the Likud-led coalition government which will allow Arab Knesset members (MKs) to be ousted, Anadolu reported on Monday.
The law was first suggested by the right-wing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a punishment for the Arab parliamentarians who visited families of the victims of Israeli security forces. The visits were made at the request of a civil society organisation to see if the MKs could help to have the bodies of those killed released by the authorities for burial.
According to Netanyahu and Jewish Knesset members, Israeli media claimed, the visits were "incitement" by the Arab MKs. "We have to keep limits and basic rules of behaviour so that democracy will not turn into a suicide pact," insisted the Israeli prime minister. "Democracy must protect itself and defend itself."
The Jerusalem Post reported that the Chairman of the High Follow-Up Committee for the Arab Citizens of Israel, Mohamed Barakeh, a former MK himself, described the proposal as a plot to bring "racial purity" to the Knesset. He hinted that Israeli Arabs may consider boycotting the political process: "If someone wants it, we may consider contributing to that racial purity."
For the third time in five years, the world's fourth largest military power has launched a full-scale armed onslaught on one of its most deprived and overcrowded territories. Since Israel's bombardment of the Gaza Strip began, just over a week ago, more than 200 Palestinians have been killed. Nearly 80% of the dead are civilians, over 20% of them children
Around 1,400 have been wounded and 1,255 Palestinian homes destroyed. So far, Palestinian fire has killed one Israeli on the other side of the barrier that makes blockaded Gaza the world's largest open-air prison.
But instead of demanding a halt to Israel's campaign of collective punishment against what is still illegally occupied territory, the western powers have blamed the victims for fighting back. If it weren't for Hamas's rockets fired out of Gaza's giant holding pen, they insist, all of this bloodletting would end.
The VIDEO you need to watch hence FACEBOOK censored so many times...
"No country on earth would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders," Barack Obama declared, echoed by a mostly pliant media. Perhaps it's scarcely surprising that states which have themselves invaded and occupied a string of Arab and Muslim countries in the past decade should take the side of another occupier they fund and arm to the hilt.
But the idea that Israel is responding to a hail of rockets out of a clear blue sky takes "narrative framing" beyond the realm of fantasy. In fact, after the deal that ended Israel's last assault on Gaza in 2012, rocketing from Gaza fell to its lowest level for 12 years.
The latest violence is supposed to have been triggered by the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teenagers in the occupied West Bank in June, for which Hamas denied responsibility. But its origin clearly lies in the collapse of US-sponsored negotiations for a final settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the spring.
That was followed by the formation of a "national reconciliation" government by the Fatah and Hamas movements, whose division has been a mainstay of Israeli and US policy. Israeli incursions and killings were then stepped up, including attacks on Palestinian civilians by armed West Bank settlers. In May, two Palestinian teenagers were shot dead by the Israeli army with barely a flicker of interest outside the country.
It's now clear the Israeli government knew from the start that its own kidnapped teenagers had been killed within hours. But the news was suppressed while a #BringBackOurBoys campaign was drummed up and a sweeping crackdown launched against Hamas throughout the West Bank.
Over 500 activists were arrested and more than half a dozen killed – along with a Palestinian teenager burned to death by settlers. Binyamin Netanyahu's aim was evidently to signal that whatever deal Hamas had signed with Mahmoud Abbas would never be accepted by Israel.
Gaza had nothing to do with the kidnapping, but Israeli attacks were also launched on the strip and Hamas activists killed. It was those killings and the West Bank campaign that led to Hamas resuming its rocket attacks – and in turn to Israel's devastating bombardment.
Hamas is now blamed for refusing to accept a ceasefire plan cooked up by Netanyahu and his ally, the Egyptian President Sisi, who overthrew Hamas's sister organisation the Muslim Brotherhood last year and has since tightened the eight-year siege of Gaza.
But having already suffered so much, many Gazans believe no further truce should be agreed without the lifting of the illegal blockade which has reduced the strip to hunger and beggary and effectively imprisoned its population.
As the independent Palestinian MP Mustafa Barghouti puts it, the Egyptian proposal was a "game" Israel will now use to escalate the war. Some sense of what can now be expected was given by the Israeli reserve major general Oren Shachor, who explained: "If we kill their families, that will frighten them."

The idea that Israel is defending itself against unprovoked attacks from outside its borders is an absurdity. Despite Israel's withdrawal of settlements and bases in 2005, Gaza remains occupied both in reality and international law, its border, coastal waters, resources, airspace and power supply controlled by Israel.
So the Palestinians of Gaza are an occupied people, like those in the West Bank, who have the right to resist, by force if they choose – though not deliberately to target civilians. But Israel does not have a right of self-defence over territories it illegally occupies – it has an obligation to withdraw. That occupation, underpinned by the US and its allies, is now entering its 48th year. Most of the 1.8 million Palestinians enduring continuous bombardment in Gaza are themselves refugees or their descendants, who were driven out or fled from cities such as Jaffa 66 years ago when Israel was established.
It can't seriously be argued that Israel's refusal to withdraw from the rump of the territory on which the United Nations voted to establish a Palestinian state in 1947 is because of rocket fire. It was after all during the period of quiescence over the past year that the Israeli government rejected the US plan for even a figleaf of a two-state solution – and stepped up illegal colonisation. As Netanyahu made clear this week, there cannot be "any agreement in which we relinquish security control" of the West Bank.
So we're left with a one-state solution, operated on ethnically segregated apartheid-style lines, in which a large section of the population has no say in who rules over them, indefinitely. But it's folly to imagine that this shameful injustice will continue without an escalating cost for those who enforce it.
Palestinian resistance is often criticised as futile given the grotesque power imbalance between the two sides. But Hamas, which attracts support more for its defiance than its Islamism, has been strengthened by the events of the past week, as it has shown it can hit back across Israel – while Abbas, dependent on an imploded "peace process", has been weakened still further.
The conflict's eruptions are certainly coming thicker and faster. Despite heroic Israeli efforts to fix the narrative, global opinion has never been more sympathetic to the Palestinian cause. But the brutal reality is that there will be no end to Israel's occupation until Palestinians and their supporters are able to raise its price to the occupier, in one way or another – and change the balance of power on the ground.

New Israeli movement Save Jewish Jerusalem has called for the building of a wall encircling 28 Palestinian villages in East Jerusalem in order to preserve the city’s Jewish identity, Israeli newspaper Maariv reported on Friday.
According to Quds Press, which reported on the news published in Maariv, Save Jewish Jerusalem was set up by the former Cabinet minister Haim Ramon, alongside a number of former political, security and military officials.
The Jerusalem Intifada?
Rising tensions in the Occupied Territories have led to dozens of deaths and hundreds of clashes.
Learn more about the Jerusalem Intifada
Maariv noted that the movement does not belong to a certain political faction.
The manifesto's authors explain that by removing some 200,000 Palestinians from the municipal boundaries of Jerusalem, the city’s Jews will constitute more than 80% of its residents, and the percentage of Palestinians will drop to less than 20%, from the nearly 40% today.
After the villages' separation from Jerusalem, the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) and other security agencies would operate in them the way they currently do in the rest of the West Bank, according to the manifesto.
Prime minister also expected to lodge complaint with Knesset ethics committee, after Israeli Arab MKs help campaign to return Palestinian terrorists' bodies withheld by Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked the attorney general on Saturday to examine what legal steps can the state take against the Arab lawmakers who met the families of Palestinian terrorists in Jerusalem this week.
Netanyahu will also file a joint complaint with Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein to the Knesset Ethics Committee, a statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office said Saturday evening. "Members of Knesset who console the families of terrorists who murdered Israelis are unfit to serve in Israel's Knesset," an earlier statement said.
The meeting attended by MKs Jamal Zahalka, Basel Ghattas and Haneen Zoabi (all from the Joint Arab List's Balad faction) was part of a campaign being conducted by the families, and legal aid and human rights groups. They are seeking the return of the bodies of family members, who were killed in the course of attacks, and are now being held by the Israeli authorities.

At the meeting with the Balad Knesset members, the families called the withholding of the bodies a step aimed at nothing other than inflicting distress. The MKs promised they would work with Israeli decision makers to have the bodies returned. As part of their campaign, the family members also met this week with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
The Joint Arab List's Balad faction accused Netanyahu of exerting "inappropriate political pressure on the attorney general, and still treats him as the cabinet secretary, forgetting that he has an independent status and doesn't receive orders from Netanyahu."
"Netanyahu's continued incitement against the Arab MKs is another step in fortifying his regime, based on scare tactics and racism, in order to divert the debate from the main issue: Returning the bodies to their families to be buried, as required by any moral, human or religious standard," the faction said in a statement.
The Joint Arab List said that burying the dead is a human and religious duty, shared by Islam, Judaism and Christianity, and condemned Netanyahu's "incitement" against the lawmakers. The efforts to return the bodies are "perfectly legitimate regardless of the circumstances of the death," said the statement, adding: "The incitement must end, and actions must be taken so we can talk about life and not about bodies."
"The issue is being discussed by the political and security echelons. Some of the bodies were returned and some haven't, and so the furor around the activity to bring back those bodies which haven't yet been buried is unclear.
"The prime minister and some ministers and lawmakers exploited the issue to incite and call for punitive measures, even though no law has been broken, including the Knesset ethics code."
The Higher Arab Monitoring Committee also condemned "Netanyahu's incitement campaign against the Arab public and its representatives."
The committee said that Netanyahu and Edelstein know the purpose of the lawmakers' meeting with the families, and yet are still leading an "incitement wave meant to silence and block any political action by the Arab public's representatives."
Responding to critics' from both the left and right, MK Zahalka told Channel 2 Friday that the issue was being blown out of proportion. When asked why the lawmakers observed a moment of silence for the terrorists, Zahalka responded, "That's the way it is with all [mourning events] in the West Bank. You stand for a moment of silence for all the fallen Palestinian people." He added that they too were "victims of the occupation."
Knesset speaker Edelstein said Thursday that the Israeli Arab lawmakers' actions constituted incitement to murder. "It is unthinkable that while innocent civilians are being slaughtered in Israel's streets, Knesset members console and give voice to the murders' families. I view this as a severe assault on the Knesset and the state of Israel," he said, adding that Israel's Supreme Court justices should remember these incidents when debating petitions against barring the Israeli Arab politicians from running for Knesset.
The opposition Zionist Union joined in on condemning the visit. "The visit by Balad Knesset members to the terrorists' families encourages continued terrorism and murder of innocent people," the party stated.

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) --
Hunger-striking Palestinian prisoner Muhammad al-Qiq rejected an offer by an Israeli military court to be released on May 1 and demanded an immediate end to his administrative detention, the Palestinian Authority Committee of Prisoners' Affairs said on Sunday.
The committee said that Palestinian member of Knesset Osama Saadi and lawyer Ashraf Abu Sneinah received the offer after al-Qiq's health severely deteriorated as he reached the 75th day of his hunger strike.
Al-Qiq, a 33-year-old Palestinian journalist and father of two, began his hunger strike in November to protest his administrative detention by Israel -- internment without trial or charge.
An Israeli doctor at the hospital where al-Qiq is being detained said on Saturday that the Palestinian journalist was in a critical condition, and that "each minute marks serious threat to his life."
According to the committee, al-Qiq refuses any offer that does not include his release from administrative detention, as well as the guarantee that he will receive medical treatment in a Palestinian hospital once freed.
An Israeli court had offered on Thursday to temporarily suspend al-Qiq's administrative detention, with the sentence to be resumed upon an improvement of his health, a proposition al-Qiq rejected.
Al-Qiq, who has lost his ability to speak due to his frail health and now only communicates in writing, has said he will continue his hunger strike until "martyrdom or freedom."
As al-Qiq is being held in administrative detention, any possible evidence against him has been kept secret by the Israeli authorities.
However, Amnesty International reported in January that the military judge at the Ofer Military Court said al-Qiq's file "accuses him of 'incitement,' of working with media associated with Hamas ... and also of being a 'threat to the security of the area.'"
Palestinian children and their families continue to live in an environment characterized by violence, poverty and insecurity. Although there has been some progress towards achieving children’s rights in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), 1.97 million children (48.6% of the total population) continue to suffer from the impact of occupation and intra-Palestinian division. In the West Bank, restrictions on movement and access, home demolitions and forced displacement have a serious impact on children’s lives. Challenges to life, security, and human dignity are realities for children living in highly vulnerable areas. In Gaza, the long term impacts of the last major military offensive on Gaza in 2008-2009, coupled with the ongoing blockade expose children to violence or deprivation in their daily lives and affects girls and boys in different ways. Severe restrictions on movement in all areas of the country and continuing political instability have depleted family coping mechanisms and led to a significant deterioration of services, affecting all aspects of child well-being.

If no one Stops the Zionists, They will not Stop!
Yesterday I posted a piece about why Saudi Arabia had inexplicably executed 47 people, including a prominent Shiite cleric. Most worryingly, many of the executed were guilty of terrorism apparently. Well if that's the case why haven't the leaders of Saudi Arabia been executed in a similar fashion? Goodness knows how long the media have had us think Saudi terrorists carried out 9/11. Of course that's nonsense – the way to get to to the truth here is to ask why the media has lied for so long & never retracted this lie? Well to answer that question you have to ask who owns the media? I feel I'm a lone voice in the wilderness when it comes to this!
But there's more truth perhaps to the Saudis being partly responsible at least for ISIS. Many people seem to believe Saudi money has helped bring this scourge upon us. I for one do not believe this is the case but since even some mainstream news outlets go along with much of what's said on the Internet regarding ISIS & Saudi backing, once again serious questions have to be raised – how can Saudi Arabia so readily execute terrorists while its leaders are funding terrorists elsewhere? All I ever see is the same people having their cake & being allowed to damn well eat it! The same can be said of Israel & Turkey. Both have no right to complain about terrorists because it is a proven fact – both the Israelis & the Turks are helping finance ISIS.
So what the bloody hell is going on here? We know we're being lied to but it's the sheer level of lies & the fact it's so obvious people like Netanyahu, Obama & Cameron are lying through their back teeth. Of course when we talk about the autocratic regime of Saudi Arabia, only blithering idiots don't realise that every decent country should have severed diplomatic ties with Riyadh yonks ago! If ever we needed an example of what politicians will do for money, here it is in a nutshell – Saudi Arabia! They behave disgracefully yet our politicians can't wait to lick their arse!
More alarming is the fact these chronic double standards are being fed into our thought process as if they're acceptable. I say this because of the media's reaction, & believe it or not, this is the key. Our contemptible Prime Minister here in the UK recently had the gall to label those opposed to bombing Syria as terrorist sympathisers. Now, even though he was asked to retract this outrageous slur, HE NEVER DID! What's worse, the media never made a big deal out of this. Is the media smoking so much pot they've become docile? Hardly. They've been attacking Jeremy Corbyn non-stop as if he head-butted the local vicar but when Cameron shows what a vile scumbag he is, they say nothing!
But what should really alert & worry everyone is how this word 'terrorist' is being used at the convenience of those in office. It sickens me no end our political system is that naff Cameron can have a majority in parliament even though less than 1 in 4 voters voted for the two-bob toe-rag! But I keep going back to this – a year ago at the UN Cameron stated even peaceful activists opposed to his views were as dangerous as ISIS terrorists. Well, the crimes some of the people the Saudis just executed was for merely organising protests & demonstrations – YET THEY WERE DEEMED TERRORISTS! Thankfully, either Cameron or his advisers or both are men of average intelligence for they felt it necessary to mark everyone's card by letting it slip that CAMERON WOULD DO EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO ERADICATE 9/11 TRUTHERS! Getting the picture are we.......
Once again the media never said a word. Here we have the UK Prime Minister effectively saying if you don’t believe our cock and bull explanation of 9/11 YOU DESERVE TO DIE! The good news for me is I at least know why the media is protecting Cameron – the very people who own the media were responsible for 9/11, all the terrorism that’s come with it, all the death & destruction & of course, ISIS! The bad news is, hard as I try to make people see this, I feel it’s going to take a hell of lot more for the penny to drop. I said it will get worse & worse because those responsible CANNOT stop! How many times have I said – if no one stops the Zionists, they will not stop! The stage we’re now at – anyone, a leader with just 23% of the vote doesn’t like, can be labeled a terrorist!
Moreover think about this. Wouldn’t you be inclined to believe, especially with the paranoia the Israelis regularly display whenever they feel in the slightest bit threatened, all this turmoil in the region would have the Israelis on their toes screaming blue murder! Yet, the distinct impression I get is Tel Aviv is the very essence of tranquility. I can just see them in the Knesset now, patting each other on the back saying ‘oy veh! These Goyim aren’t half easy to play!’
