Hebron is know to be one of the most volatile areas in the West Bank. It is a microcosm of the other areas but what makes it so special is the fact that it portrays the real Apartheid picture of Israel. In Hebron, Arabs and Jews live inside the city. But to the radical Jewish settlers, it is not a sign of possible coexistence, but rather and attempt to steal property and intimidate the Palestinians.
The most recent issue arising in Hebron is the takeover of a Palestinian building by Jewish settlers. This has happened frequently in Hebron. Settlers would intimidate, harass and attack Palestinians until they are forced to leave the old city which Israelis want to take over. In Hebron's old city, Palestinian residents have to live under continuous curfew while Israeli settler walk under military protection as they like.
Anyway, the house in question is owned by a Palestinian family. Israeli settlers claim that they bought it, and they took it over. In a decent democracy, this would not happen, as there should be a due process to resolve such matters in courts. However, in the Jewish 'Democratic' State, the settlers get military protection while they perform their theft. Of course, you can't expect Apartheid to act against its own superior group.
The picture below shows what have come to happen to Hebron's old city. The once flourishing market, is not virtually all closed down due to constant attacks on the Palestinians shops in which these shops are burnt by settlers. You just have to get a small walk down the old city to understand what it is like. The "Movit li Aravim"(Death to Arabs) slogans are the slightest of the concerns of Hebron's Arab majority.
