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 | 2 comments
It isn't dumb. It's just being realistic. Similarly, if they had enough power to stop the building, would they be negotiating at all? Negotiation is always dependent on current power and long term goals. The best is done based on enlightened self interest. That should include not only short term building or not buiding, but what kind of relationship do you want to have between Jews and Palastinains. Not having a relationship is just not an option. The place is too small and too interconneted, and no amount of Israeli start-ups and venture capital from the West, and no amount of Islamic fundamentalism is going to change that. Mutual respect and mutual understadning mean mutual salvation. Jews and Palastinans together will either heroically gain or meanly lose the ultimate peace.
