“The Israel Antiquities Authority suspects extremist ultra-Orthodox Jews who say the authority damages ancient graves during excavations… Similar acts have been carried out at other archaeological sites; one slogan sprayed Monday night read “A site for every grave [desecrated].” Another read “For Shuka,” probably referring to Shuka Dorfman, the head of the antiquities authority. ”

Diane Tran is not white, but she is assuredly not black or Hispanic, and that is perhaps why Texas threw this Grade 11 student in jail rather than provide her with the necessary counselling and assistance for her to be able to attend school and at the same time help to support her brother and sister.
“(Constable James) Little chose ‘to disregard his professional obligations and embark on a course of retaliatory action against a colleague performing his sworn, lawful duty,’ Supt. Robin Breen wrote in his ruling… ‘He abused his position to express his personal displeasure about his colleague’s arrest of an off-duty police officer.'”
“…the constitutional issue … cannot be decided by the political parties and a voting majority. Our nation is ultimately guided by the Constitution and the rule of law, not by majority rule.

In April 2000 I wrote a letter to the Toronto Sun in which I stood up for the Palestinians, and since then, I almost gave up on writing letters to newspapers because, contrary to my frequent successes in the past, they were no longer published. But I persevered, partly because I love to express myself on items I agree with, and I find that writing about subjects that displease me has a soothing effect and takes the edge off my annoyance.
“The infiltrators are a cancer in our body” – “The infiltrators must be expelled from Israel!
