Irrevocably Corroded

Electronic Intifada reports on ethnic cleansing in the Negev. As Israeli Defense Forces and police test new methods of breaking the will of Bedouin villagers -- whose land claims have been tied up in court for half a century -- Jewish settlers cheer on the destruction of Bedouin homes.

As Israeli citizens living outside the occupied territories of Gaza and the West Bank, the Bedouin are in some ways more vulnerable to malicious harassment. Just last week, Jewish college students at summer camp went on a day trip to vandalize Bedouin properties.

Given the recent development of atrocity tourism sponsored by the State of Israel, one has to ask if Israeli culture has become irrevocably corroded.
