Made in Israel
As Gabriel Schivone reports, Israel’s role in Guatemala’s colossal massacres of Mayan Indians in the 1980s was as an intermediary for the United States. Indigenous refugees from atrocities in Central America — that continue to this day — now encounter Israeli-made surveillance towers on the US-Mexico border, where US forces occupy the second largest Native American reservation of Tohono O’odham. Homeland Security militarization of Arizona and Chiapas, initiated under Obama, continues under Trump.
