Gideon Levy: Palestinians are prohibited from defending their families from violent aggression

There aren’t many populations in the world as helpless as the Palestinians who live in their own country. No one protects their lives and property. They are totally abandoned to their fates. Their houses and cars can be torched, their fields set on fire. It’s all right to shoot them mercilessly, killing old people and babies, with no defense forces at their side.

Gideon Levy: Israel Wants Another Intifada

Only the skies of the ghetto are still open, and that is in a limited fashion too. Coming soon, the next devilish invention of the defense establishment: A dome of iron, a huge ceiling over the skies of Gaza. The head of the “border and seamline” administration is already working on it… Two million people have been imprisoned continuously for 15 years – there has never been another concentration camp like it…
