Rebuilding Gaza

It's a Herculean task. With no assurance Israel won't destroy it again at its discretion. For duplicitous reasons. Or none at all. Billions of dollars are needed. Experts believe around $8 billion.

No one's sure ...

Israel Murders Journalists

Israel threatens press freedom. Repressive Knesset legislation targets speech, assembly, association, and the right to dissent. So does Kafkaesque justice.

It does so on the spurious pretext of national security. It gags ...
