Två artiklar: “Can you really not see?” och : “If I were a Palestinian”

HaaretzArtikeln Can you really not see, publicerades förra året i den israeliska tidningen Haaretz men jag har inte läst den förrän nu. Den är dock precis lika aktuell idag som för fyra månader sedan. Tyvärr. Artikeln är skriven av israeliskan Amira Hass och borde läsas av många, judar, palestinier, svenskar, amerikaner – och många fler. Amira Hass skriver bland annat:

Could your mind really be so washed with the security excuse, used to forbid Gaza students from studying occupational therapy at Bethlehem and medicine at Abu Dis, and preventing sick people from Rafah from receiving medical treatment in Ramallah? Will also you find it easy to hide behind the explanation "we had no idea": we had no idea that the discrimination practiced in the distribution of water – which is solely controlled by Israel – leaves thousands of Palestinian households without water during the hot summer months; we had no idea that when the IDF blocks the entrance to villages, it also blocks their access to springs or water tanks.

I samma tidning, Haaretz, kan man också läsa en intressant intervju med en israelisk man, Nissim Levy, som under 20 år arbetade för Shin Bet säkerhetstjänst, bland annat som fältkoordinator i Libanon och i flyktingläger på Gazaremsan. Artikeltexten – If I were a Palestinian – och Nissim Levys stillsamt osentimentala berättelser är fruktansvärd att läsning om man verkligen tar in allt. Som t.ex.:

Although Levy does not regret anything he did in the Shin Bet, he has much more empathy and understanding for the people he pursued than for the Israeli leadership that sent him after them. He does not speak about a shady security service that tortures people, but feels that the very presence of Israeli forces in occupied territories gives the other side legitimacy to carry out terror attacks.

Intressant är också det som Nissim Levy berättar om hur det var att vara fältkoordinator i Gaza:

In Lebanon and Gaza Levy was in charge of recruiting and handling collaborators. As a field coordinator, he explains, he had to be very familiar with the population living in the area for which he was responsible, and to find people who would agree to collaborate with the enemy. "A coordinator who is responsible for a refugee camp of 18,000 people knows all of them. He's the prince of the area. An intelligent person has to be something of a 'gossip.' He has to know everyone, to know how they look, what they wear, what their nicknames are, how many children each one has and where he comes from. You accumulate a huge amount of information in your head, because when you go out to work it's only you and your head. You don't go out with a computer.
