With great force, he knocked me to the ground, turned me over and handcuffed me. He identified himself as a policeman and started punching me in the back. Three or four other men showed up suddenly behind my brother, who was standing closer to the motorcycle. They pounced on him, handcuffed him and started hitting him. One of the men also called for reinforcements.

For many it’s clear that the Oslo framework, which expired in 1999, was a trap.

The donations have decreased but remain a trap. They require obedience and maintenance of “calm,” or permit only low-intensity rage. But the Palestinians are captives who are convinced they could not manage without their donating captors.

Here is a man who cites the "lessons of the Holocaust" at every opportunity. Here is a man who is graphic and exacting when he says "Never Again" when he talks about Iran, Hizbollah, Hamas, ISIS, Al-Qaida, Palestinian Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini, and Israel's pre-1967 Green Line borders.
