Noam Sheizaf, journalist and keeper of the Promised Land blog, discusses his article, “Settlers’ murder investigation turns into collective punishment;” the apartheid system on display as the entire Palestinian village of Awarta is subjected to the whims of an Israeli army murder investigation; the mass arrests, beatings, property destruction and theft that ultimately caught two murder suspects and laid bare the myth of Palestinian independence and self-rule; and how the army protected the Israeli settlers who jumped at the chance to seize more land.

  1. My compliments to Noam Sheizaf. I read his article "Settlers' murder investigation turns into collective punishment." It exposes the IDF's mistreatment of an entire Palestinian village.

    Sheizaf's an honest journalist. He's also an ex-IDF man with a conscience. Good for him.
