Essay: "Refugeeism" Categories: Israel, Middle East, Palestinians     Author: Michael Bernstam

Though pundits focus on the question of settlements or the current temperature of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, UNRWA's institutionalisation of refugee-cum-military camps is the principal obstacle to peace in the Middle East.

The recent announcement that the US Obama Administration has ended efforts to negotiate a 90-day extension of Israel's moratorium on West Bank settlement construction is more opportunity than embarrassment.

Out of the Fire Categories: Israel     Author: Amotz Asa-El

The conflagration's duration and breadth, and the five million trees it reduced to ashes, would likely have sufficed to shock the country and touch off a commotion transcending this disaster's already grim environmental repercussions.
