Volvo: Symbol of safety or human rights abuses?

On their website Volvo says they want their cars to be "an exciting experience." What they don't mention is that Volvo bulldozers are being used to destroy Palestinian homes in the Negev desert.

The automotive manufacturer Volvo writes on its website that is has the vision of being "the most desired and successful premium car brand by creating the safest and most exciting car experience," and "choosing a car is about the comfort and safety of your passengers, most especially your children." However, the Palestinian people in Israel, including the Bedouins, and the occupied territories might have another view on Volvo.
