Why do Israeli soldiers bully Palestinians?

•, Amira Hass

ВВ Why did his commanders send a soldier with a record of violence to bully Palestinians in Hebron? The IDF Spokespersons Unit chose to respond to Haaretzs question with "no comment." Perhaps thats because the right answer is: Violence and bullying are what the Israel Defense Forces presence in Hebron and the West Bank is really all about. And another right answer: The IDFs first mission in the West Bank is to ensure the continuation of the settlement enterprise, which means expelling the Palestinians from their land. The violence of the army and the settlers serves this mission. The proof? The hundreds of buildings in Hebrons Old City that have been emptied of their owners and tenants.
