The young members of the Labor party in Israel held a meeting this past week at party headquarters. Young leaders of Israel's veteran political movement convened to discuss currents and invited the wisdom of Binyamin Ben Eliezer, Israel's serving Infrastructures Minister.

The great event, featuring respected personalities, musical… Continue

THREE MINUTES TO CHANGE: A Link to a movie entitled Paper Airplane by Michael McMillan

The Gaza Strip, A Zoo!!!


article to be read here :(

A zoo. This is one of the ways that Palestinians describe the conditions under which nearly 1.5 million of them have

been living: in an area of some 360 square kilometers, closed in on

three sides by sophisticated barbed-wire fences, concrete walls and

military lookout towers, and to the west by Israeli navy ships…
