From Settler Violence to Attacks on Haredi Jews, Coronavirus is Laying Israeli Attitudes Bare

•, By Miko Peled

Occupied Palestine – In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, one would expect that the desire to work as one world to curb the spread of the virus would outweigh any considerations of politics, race or religion. However, the violence and neglect of Israel's Zionist government and non-governmental bodies towards Palestinians not only continues in full force but in many cases, has increased.

March and April of 2020 will be remembered not only for the pandemic but for the violence meted out by the Israeli authorities against the populations that Zionists are determined to destroy – Palestinians living under occupation in the large ghettos erected by Israel, Palestinian citizens of Israel, and those who languish in Israeli jails. In addition, there are the Ultra-Orthodox, or Haredi Jews who live in segregated communities and are despised by the Israeli state.
