Israel and Palestine: old grievances break to new unrest

Description

We’ve been here before: Israel is bombarding Gaza, and more than two hundred people have been killed, many of them women and children.

Israel says they have a right to defend themselves after the militant group Hamas began firing rockets, killing at least 10 Israelis.

But there we haven’t been before is the unrest within Israel itself, with clashes between Arabs and Jews. Even the President of Israel has warned of civil war. 

What will take for this latest flare-up to end - and does the violence on the streets pose an existential threat to Israel itself?

We speak to a writer in Gaza, a former spokesperson for Benjamin Netanyahu, and a Palestinian-Israeli and a Jewish Israeli who live in Acre.
