    live under an occupation that is administered like a dictatorship. None of their rights are guaranteed, so all of them can be and are violated. And the main purpose for these arbitrary violations is demonstrate control and authority.

    Just read the testimonies of occupation soldiers themselves, which were collected by the group Breaking the Silence in one book that can be found here.

      Within Israel behind the green line, it is civil law, albeit under "a state of emergency " which has existed since Independence, which allows near free reign to oppress an marginalize the Arab in the name of security.
