Settler Violence: More Than Criminal


In this episode of FMEP’s Occupied Thoughts podcast, Kristin McCarthy (FMEP’s Director of Grants & Operations) speaks with Ziv Stahl (Executive Director of Yesh Din) about the phenomenon of settler violence, including it’s goals and utility, the totality of its affect on Palestinians, how it is used as a means for land takeover, and the complete lack of accountability or protection provided by the Israeli police and army. Yesh Din recently published a data sheet tracking trends in settler violence and lack of accountability from 2005-2022, available here.
