Israel approves jailing Jewish militants without trial

{Doesn’t this more or less prove, they know who has been acting out terror against Palestinians and moderate Israelis?}

Palestinian Vigilante Effort Marks Stark Change in West Bank – The New York Times

“Can we explode against the occupation, without exploding against the authority?” asked Mohammad Dawabsheh, 32 (most residents of the hamlet share the same family name). “No. You don’t fix your garden before fixing the house,” he said.

But this shift to lashing out, to vigilante patrols, to vociferously condemning Palestinian governance, it is a shift that is bleeding out across the West Bank amid rising frustration. Weary of conflict after the violence of their second intifada, Palestinians speak of deep unease over the future, and despair with their present.

“For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers. I revere them when they live in tribes and families, in forests and groves. And even more I revere them when they stand alone.

In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfill themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree.
