How would you feel if it was the case that you, or your loved ones, had the most fundamental aspects of your lives constrained and controlled?

Kristallnacht in Palestine

Virtually daily, Israeli security forces attack, kill, or injure Palestinian civilians with impunity. They also destroy their property by bombing, shelling, bulldozing and uprooting it.

The same holds for its own security forces, no matter how outrageous their crimes.
