…it is hard for the former residents of Iqrit [an Arab Christian village vacated during the 1948-49 war] and their descendants to understand why the authorities block them – full Israeli citizens – from re-establishing their community in the village…

Why are the authorities blocking them? Because the authorities are Zionists, that’s why!
