Since the outbreak of the war in Gaza, Israelis are glued to their televisions and surf the Internet between news and social networks. Citizens usually obsessed with the news are even more immersed and during the war a point of view has spread that, for much of Israel’s media history, had been marginal, but has now reached its climax: that of the far-right settlers. .
The settlement movement, which originated as a small outpost of religious Zionists, has expanded exponentially since the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza following the 1967 Six-Day War. Formerly considered dissidents, marginal men patrolling the hills of Hebron with Uzi submachine guns, the settlers have significantly increased their influence and have become key political agents.
