Notebook in hand, acclaimed Irish author Colm Toibin walks into Hebron to observe Israeli military rule in its rawest form. In the heart of the West Bank's largest Palestinian city, several hundred combat troops guard an equal number of militant Jewish settlers, enforcing a separation system that lets settlers move freely at the expense of Palestinians and has turned a once vibrant market into a ghost district.Two Israelis sitting at a cafe table spot Toibin's escort, Israeli peace activist Yehuda Shaul, and begin cursing him.Toibin, 61, stands back and takes notes on what Shaul later describes as routine settler lawlessness in Hebron.The work is based on observations during tours similar to Toibin's.Last week, Shaul accompanied Toibin to the Palestinian hamlet of Susiya, home to several dozen families.
