PM vows to pursue relevant legislation after three Israeli Arab MKs visit Jerusalem terrorists' families and observe moment of silence in their honor; 'imagine if this happened in the U.K. Parliament or U.S. Congress,' Netanyahu says.14:13 07.02.16 | 0 comments
I suspect that part of the motivation of the police is to be found in the realpolitik of "spin". Violence against the settlers could boomerang and create deep emotional currents of public opinion against the government and the disengagement. The parasitical settlers would whinge and whine on the conscience of national opinion like Polish mothers. It is likely that government spin doctors have warned of these consequences and the police have been restrained, not out of a sense of a change in attitude, as Gideon thinks, but out of a temporary sense of political correctnesss.
