It's not an underground that is the problem. There are whole communities, and indeed units of the border police and the IDF whose behaviour is consistently problematic. They may not regularly kill Palestinians. But they block wells, poison sheep, shoot donkeys, harass children on their way to school. Anyone who follows daily reports on dozens of villages in the Hebron Hills knows this. Nothing is done to rein in the fanatics of Havat Maon, with their hooded patrols of the district, or the way the police harass people at Susya, or at-Tuwani etc. A coherent policy of making life impossible for hardscrabble Palestinian farmers on their own land, of fencing in, hemming in, people, and incremental land grabs, of illegal building, is reported, and yet nothing is done by Israel's authorities. Call it soft terrorism, creating an atmosphere of slow death by the slaps of hands wrapped in the velvet glove. It's the system itself in its normalcy you should focus on.
