Targeted Killings: US and Israeli Specialties

Israel 'Existential Threat' from within

racisemIsrael is facing an “acute” existential threat from reactionary elements within as “a profoundly anti-democratic, even racist, political culture has become endemic among much of the Jewish population in the West Bank, and jeopardizes Israel proper,” The New Yorker magazine asserts in its March 12th issue.
