Identifying "suspicious" figures involves yelling "Stop."

Soldiers follow up in Hebrew and Arabic saying "Stop and identify yourself. Stop or I'll shoot." If they think Palestinians risk "human life," they're told to shoot to kill.

Protocol is policy. Soldiers do what they wish. It's their word against victims and/or bystanders. Justice never prevails. The above BTS comments explain.

Israeli rules of engagement enforce occupation harshness. They reflect police state viciousness. Edward Said once described a "bloody impasse."

Israel turned Palestine into an isolated prison. An entire population is subdued. It's suffocating. It's impoverished and brutalized. Victims are blamed for Israeli crimes. 

Every imaginable indignity and degradation afflicts them. A cycle of violence harms them. They're terrorized for their faith, ethnicity and presence. Their redoubtable spirit is their only defense.

Oslo made things worse. Subsequent agreements hardened it. PA officials accepted what demanded rejection. Expect more concessions ahead.

Said deplored PA betrayal. He compared it to asking an "executioner if he wouldn't mind sharpening his axe a little before having another go."
