3. A boycott of their own? Settlers compiling list of businesses that employ “Arabs”

"Haaretz reports that settlers from Yitzhar have been canvassing Israeli businesses in Jerusalem to determine which ones employ Arab-Israelis, so that the names of these companies can be put into a public directory.

The project, which Haaretz says is called "Hebrew Labor," is being spearheaded by the grandson of far-right rabbi Meir Kahane, whose political movement, Kach, has been banned in Israel (the "Jewish Defense Leagues" are spiritual Kahanist successors).

The Israeli police arrested Kahane's grandson on the suspicion that he was conducting surveillance for terrorist attacks, and he has since been released. He and his cohorts - Haaretz estimates less than two dozen people are involved with "Hebrew Labor," almost all of them young men from Yitzhar - have actually been in Jerusalem for a while under a sort of restraining order: they received legal papers ordering them to remain in the city pending a decision by the government to allow them to return to Yitzhar and its environs because they are suspected of plotting price taggings."
