Meir the Security Coordinator in The Lawless Zone

https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10152684003382604

Today, we published "The Lawless Zone" report, which deals with Civilian Security Coordinators in settlements (Ravshatzim) and the way in which they influence the IDF's conduct and serve the interests of the settlers in the West Bank. What is a security coordinator? In most cases, the position is filled by a member of the settlement who holds quasi-military powers in several fields of law enforcement. It is hard to miss the structural conflict of interests that this position holds - the power originally granted to the security coordinator with the goal of encouraging law enforcement and security is often used in practice as an instrument for expanding the area of the settlement or outpost and for breaking the law. Not to mention the fact that the security coordinator receives his salary from the defense ministry and the weapon from the IDF. Read "A Constant Conflict of Interest" to understand more about the problematic role of the security coordinator --> http://bit.ly/ConflictofInterest Read the full report: The Lawless Zone --> http://bit.ly/LawlessZone

Important and sobering article.

The ugly truth is that much of today’s anti-Semitism originates with people of Muslim background.
