Our tax dollars hard at work, attacking shepherds in the South Hebron Hills

Last month we reported on the Israeli army attacking Palestinian shepherds and representatives of US Campaign member group Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) in the South Hebron Hills of the occupied West Bank.
Here is video of the incident from CPT, which culminated in the kidnapping, torture, and release without charge and under death threat, of Musab Musa Raba'i--for the crime, one supposes, of trying to feed his sheep.
We make this possible. Our tax dollars and our involvements with corporations--such as Motorola, which creates the communication networks that make "operations" like this one possible and the surveillance systems that entrench Israeli settlements--encourage and facilitate this abuse.
