Randomly-chosen quotation:
"The visit to [the military court] Ofer hasn’t changed my great love for Israel. It has shaken, however, my confidence in its legal system. I have huge respect for the Supreme Court and its fantastic judges, but it’s really hard to reconcile that respect with this separate system for Palestinians only."
(Tony Metzer, January 2014)
