An In-Tents Time

An In-Tents Time Categories: Israel     Author: Amotz Asa-El

It seemed like a politician's nightmare: hundreds of thousands of people, often young and educated, swarming into the streets across the country, week after week, demanding a fundamental overhaul of domestic policies. When one August night the demonstrators totalled more than 300,000 people, it bec

Scribblings: De-Press-ing in Egypt Categories: Anti-Zionism, Egypt, Israel     Author: Tzvi Fleischer

Double standards - Dead Kurds don't count Categories: Israel, Turkey, Updates     Author: Or Avi-Guy
