In my latest piece for Alternet, I take a broad look at the increasing civilian violence within the Green Line, inside Israel “proper,” even though that phrase has lost a lot of meaning now that the settlers have won. I’ll get into that more in another article soon, but for now, I look at how economic policies that were embraced years ago by Netanyahu but have roots that go much farther than him actually have sown the seeds of the violent xenophobia that has mushroomed in Israel, making headlines with a lynching in Jerusalem and riots in Tel Aviv in recent months.
