Ah, thanks, robomatic. Got your point now.

But answer to your question is:- no, I do not mean like that at all. Unfortunate social trends containing violence & threats, condemned & suppressed by the authorities, do not seem to me the same thing at all as petty abuses carried out by the competent authorities, to keep certain demographics "in their place" & remind them who is boss; which seems to me a fair summary of what those obstructive Israeli checkpoint operators are up to. I didn't work so hard all my youthful days to watch from afar such nasty goings-on as that.
