Can the battle for land and minds ever be won is Israel and Palestine?
B’Tselem hands out video cameras to Palestinians,
then makes the footage public. In one video that caused a stir in
Israel, a Jewish woman tells a Palestinian woman to stay behind a gate.
“Sit here, in the cage,” the settler taunts.
When the Palestinian refuses, she hisses: “You’re a whore, and your daughters, too.”
Another video shows children as young as 4 throwing debris at Palestinians while a black-bearded man in a skullcap looks on.
Does video proof of behavior condemn those caught in the act — or does it more forcefully punish the holder of the viewing?
