In recent years some radical settlers have instituted a policy called ‘price tag’ under which every army action or Palestinian attack against them is met with a retaliatory attack against Palestinians.
Anti-Jewish government actions in the Shomron are often met with a violent response against Arabs in the area, in a deterrent policy known as “Price Tag” or “Mutual Dependency.” Every time an outpost, or even a part thereof, is demolished or evacuated, a response can be foreseen. One supporter of the policy was quoted as saying, “The time has come that there should be some crazies on our side as well, that the IDF and the Arabs should say, ‘Woa, we better not start up with those guys.’ That will make more order here, instead of the one-sidedness we have now. We have become the punching bag of both the army and the Arabs, and it’s time that they think twice before starting up with us.”
I like it.
