  • Illegal Israeli Settlements Of Palestinian Lands
    1,171 words
    The Israeli and Palestinian Conflict Unless the Israelis and Palestinians could not compromise, negotiate and come to an agreement, peace is impossible in the Middle East and even the so-called security fence that Israel is now building will not solve the conflict nor stop terrorist actions by Palestinian extremists. The Israelis and Palestinians need to compromise and negotiate, as suggested by the words written on that wall, "Peace comes (with) agreement not separation". The leaders of both si...
  • First Palestinian Intifada
    878 words
    On the 28th of September, of the year 2000, the second Palestinian Intifada took place.

  • Israeli Murderers
    631 words
    The recent assassination of Sheik Saruman raises among some Americans the question-at what point should we reconsider our rather blanket support for the Israelis and show a more even-handed attitude toward the Palestinians? The answer, it seems to me, should be assessed in cultural, economic, political, and social terms. Well, we should no longer support Israel, when... Mr. Sharon suspends all elections... plans a decade of unquestioned rule [and] suspends all investigation about fiscal impropri...

  • Palestinian Violence And Guarantee Israeli Security
    3,295 words
    The Middle East has always been known as the Holy Land, the land of the Bible. For centuries, prophets have walked there, nations have collided and conquerors have come and gone. While Jews claim a three thousand-year-old attachment to this ancient land, Arabs also stake their devotion. In 1993, these two peoples, involved in a tragic conflict that has lasted more than half a century, saw the possibility of a new beginning. It was called the Oslo Accord, and it transformed the political realitie...

  • 100 Palestinians In The Most Recent Attacks
    576 words
    Yasser Arafat has survived any number of 'defining moments' and 'turning points' in his decades as a Palestinian leader. Now comes another, perhaps the final one. The horrific slaughter of more than two dozen innocent Israelis in attacks in Jerusalem and Haifa over the weekend makes it imperative that the Palestinian Authority president break the back of the terrorist groups that carry out such murders of pure hatred. Arafat's failure to do so would open the door to an all-out Israeli war on org...

It is now well known that the bloodied "Palestinian" depicted in the photograph was Tu via Grossman, a 20-year-old Jewish student from Chicago, studying in Jeru...

Adjust the 1967 line between the "West Bank" and Israel by a few km to widen the very narrow Israeli central belt. 3. The boundary for Israel will INCLUDE the JMA. 4. The boundary for Palestine will ALSO INCLUDE the JMA. 5. Isr...
