The 'Disappearance' of Palestinian Peaceful Protest

Read from Neve Gordon, Israeli academic, who writes in the Guardian UK newspaper about the Israeli military's targeted campaign to 'disappear' Palestinian nonviolent resistance.
Clearly, the strategy is to arrest all of the leaders and charge them with incitement, thus setting an extremely high "price tag" for organising protests against the subjugation of the Palestinian people. The objective is to put an end to the pro-peace popular resistance in the villages and to crush, once and for all, the Palestinian peace movement.
