"There aren't many other places in the world where white people tell brown people what to do." Ethan Bronner*, Jerusalem bureau chief of The New York Times
Ah, Ethan, if only it were a matter of telling them what to do.
How about shooting them?
"During an arrest raid in Hebron which appeared to target Hamas men released from PA custody the day before, Israeli forces shot and killed a 66-year-old man in his bed, in what appeared to be a case of mistaken identity." (Hebron man executed during Israeli raid, maannews.net, 8/1/11)
Or destroying their homes?
"Members of the Younis family watch while their home is demolished by Israeli bulldozers in the West Bank village of Azzun Atta near Qalqilya, January 11, 2011." (In photos: family watches Israeli forces take down home, Khaleel Reash, countercurrents.org, 14/1/11)
Or gassing them?
"On Wednesday evening, Israeli troops threw tear gas canisters into a home in the village of Zabouba, west of Jenin in the northern West Bank, causing 11 people to suffer from [gas] inhalation." (Israeli troops tear gas house near Jenin, 5 children arrested in hebron, 4 fishermen in Gaza, english.pnn.ps, 20/1/11)
Or arresting them?
"Near the southern West Bank city of Hebron on Thursday morning, eight Palestinians were arrested including five minors." (ibid)
Or kidnapping them?
"Also on Thursday, the Israeli navy kidnapped four Palestinian fishermen from the southern Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis." (ibid)
