Cameras as Weapons (3)

Yesterday both Voice of America and Ha'aretz ran brief stories about Israeli settlers on the West Bank attacking Palestinians attempting to harvest olives. As I have noted here and here before, this is an ongoing problem in which the Israeli security forces and courts appear to be complicit. As in the earlier cases on which I've commented, the settlers seemed especially distressed by the idea that their criminal acts were being photographed. This image accompanied the VOA report.
