It follows their Facebook pages, uses fake profiles to 'befriend' them and presents screenshots of posts in court – this is how Israel Police is adding social activists to its virtual surveillance list. 'They know what I write and do,' Ethiopian protest leader says.09:46 06.02.16 | 1 comments
Hindsight being 20/20 as it is, I expect Israel now wishes she had never started the settlement programme after 1967. It has grown and expanded into a many-headed Hydra until it is almost out of the control of Israeli government - witness the difficulty removing four settler families from illegally living in Hebron market. The occupation and settlements are regarded by many as more than a stumbling block to peace; all but making a lasting peace impossible. Occupying and colonizing land are activities that ended with the last century. Israel should dismantle the settlements while she still can. Otherwise a civil war in Israel is not inconceivable.
