"Said radical right-wing activist Itamar Ben Gvir: "I don't support violence, certainly not against Jews, but people like [Prof. Zeev] Sternhell need to take a good look at themselves. His statements and recommendations to Arabs to attack 'only' settlers constitute a provocation that has led to violence." " Note the qualification: "...certainly not against Jews..." It's Israel's legal apparatus - not Dr Sternhell - that needs to take a good look at itself. What we used to call radical fringes have become mainstream and people like Itamar Ben Gvir are starting to look moderate by comparison. During the last election he and his ilk were sent into Arab towns to monitor the election process; they are allowed to organize banner-waving marches through Arab towns from time to time, in anticipation of which large police forces are deviated from real police work to prevent violence. When do you suggest middle Israel should begin to panic?
