  3. West Bank SodaStream workers sacked

    The Israeli-owned SodaStream factory operating in the West Bank has sacked 60 of its Palestinian employees. The night shift workers were sacked after protests that they were not able to eat after ending their 16-hour Ramadan fast. According to their union, the SodaStream company does not allow workers to bring their own food on to site.

    Striking Palestinians threatened

    Palestinian workers employed in the West Bank industrial zone of Mishor Adumim at the Zarfaty Garage came out on strike at the beginning of the week following the dismissal of their workers’ committee chairperson, Hatem Abu Ziade. They are members of the WAC-MAAN independent trade union.

    On Wednesday, Zarfaty workers on a picket line were threatened with violence by factory owners if they did not dismantle their picket line. They called the police, but when they arrived they arrested WAC-MAAN coordinator, Yoav Tamir and charged him with “inciting Palestinians.”

  4. The Middle East Problem

    Dennis Prager asks an intriguing question. Why can’t the one Jewish state in the world be allowed to exist? Who is he in essence asking? The Arab nations that surround Israel? America? The UN? When observing the behavior of the Moslem nations and then the behavior of the Jewish nation you begin to wonder why the world tends to support the Moslem stand on this extremely straightforward issue. As Prager explains “One side wants the other dead.”
    Watch and decide for yourself

  5. From the Wikipedia article about United States talk radio host Dennis Prager:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Prager

    “On November 28, 2006, he wrote that Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, should not be allowed to take his Congressional oath using a Koran because “the act undermines American civilization.”[8] In response, former New York City Mayor Edward Koch termed Prager a bigot and called for an end to his service on the United States Holocaust Memorial Council.[9][10] The Anti-Defamation League wrote that Prager’s position was “intolerant, misinformed and downright un-American.”[11] On December 4, in an interview with Prager, Tucker Carlson also criticized this, saying: “I’m no great defender of the Koran but I’m not sure why America is imperiled by Keith Ellison’s taking the oath on it.””

    By defining conflicts as religious, they become insolvable, and people on both sides become doomed to perpetual war.

    I guess your beliefs determine how you view everything in life. Maybe Israel is just trying to survive.
    Contrary to headlines, Israel is not at war with Palestinians in Gaza but with Hamas, a murderous Islamist sect whose charter states a determined aim to kill all Jews and eradicate Israel. With the scene changing hourly, it is difficult to keep a balanced perspective. World opinion brands Israel an evil aggressor. Pray for truth to prevail. Hamas leaders’ self-protection makes targets of innocent Palestinians.
