Israeli Right-wing ‘Moles’ Targeted Palestinian Laborers on Public Buses

As part of a plan to effect separate Jewish and Palestinian West Bank bus lines, “moles” were planted on mixed buses to extract sexual comments from Palestinian laborers, according to Israel’s Haaretz  newspaper.

Haaretz has received documents showing that Gilad Ach, chairman of right-wing organization Ad Kan, which has planted moles in human rights organizations, sought to promote a bus-separation campaign and to sway decision-makers to remove Palestinians from the buses.

Settler leaders, who spearheaded the campaign to remove Palestinian laborers from the buses, have been claiming for years that such workers sexually harass women on the buses.

Ya’alon decided in October 2014 to separate Palestinian and Israeli travelers, forcing Palestinians working in Israel to return to the West Bank via the Eyal checkpoint, far from the bus routes used by the settlers.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu froze implementation of the decision last May.
