Jerusalem Arabs being treated as political pawns Categories: Israel, Palestinians, Updates     Author: Daniel Meyerowitz-Katz

The status of Jerusalem involves complex considerations of unity and division, and fiery debate on this issue has become a staple of I

The Bibio File: From Dreams to Dilemmas

The Bibio File: From Dreams to Dilemmas Categories: Israel     Author: Elliot Abrams
