A Culture of Humiliation

Abby Zimet

More awful YouTube video surfacing from fun-loving Israeli troops, this
one showing an IDF soldier gleefully belly-dancing around a bound and
blindfolded Palestinian woman as she cowers and his friends hoot.
Israeli officials would have us believe this is "the exception to the norm." We suspect it is the de-humanizing - for all concerned - norm. Heartbreaking, stomach-churning.

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
