This Week's Message 

When you speak of violence, what do you mean?

In the past week,

Israeli public opinion

Is fiercely debating

About violence:

The violence of settlers


The violence of Palestinians.

What is the difference?

There are many distinctions.

Among the most important:

The IDF is committed

To suppressing

All violent acts

By Palestinians -

And also to suppressing

All forms of

Non-violent opposition

To the occupation...

On the other hand,

In many cases of

Settler violence

Against Palestinians,

Soldiers stand idly by

And do nothing.

Sometimes they even

Actively support

The violent settlers.

Perhaps that is

The reason why

The Deputy Secretary of State

Expressed concern

About this issue

To an Israeli minister.
