The death throes of Greater Israel

from MondoWeiss

Video from the settler attack on Israeli leftists from over the weekend. Notice the acquiescence (and participation?) of the police.

Watching this I can only believe that the pure fury the settlers display towards the activists is a sign that they know their world is crumbling around them. The activists represent a reality the settlers know to be true – the era of Israeli impunity is coming to an end and their days are numbered. Their illegal and immoral crusade to colonize all of historic Palestine is increasingly being exposed and rejected. The world is watching and has deemed their presence, and worldview, illegitimate. I suspect we’ll see many more videos like this, with increasing violence. Those who believe in Greater Israel will fight until the end. The death throes of an idea can be a very dangerous time.
