    As a protestor in Bil'in, what am I to think of the conduct of the IDF and the obligatory double standard that treats Palestinian protestors with violence and hostility simply because they are not Jewish? If the protestors were Palestinian, and marching from the West Bank through checkpoints into Israeli cities, rubber bullets, tear gas, and live ammunition would be deployed without hesitation. Why is the same standards not maintained for illegal protests held by Israeli citizens? Imagine the day that the IDF chooses to march with Palestinian protestors through the gates of Bil'in and the checkpoints of Ramallah to provide security to the protestors and surrounding civilians. Until that day arrives, the Israeli State will continue its unabashed apartheid techniques to continue a system of exploitation and theft in Palestine.
