Israel is practising medical warfareEJJP European Jews for a Just Peace - Press release - “The use of disease as a weapon of war is unconscionable. Lack of power means clean water cannot be pumped, nor sewage treated. The consequences are diseases such as typhoid and cholera – no respecters of political boundaries. Isolating Gaza because of Qassam rockets means that residents of both Sderot and Gaza are victims of a stupid and vicious policy.The WHO and the international community cannot stand by and wait for the first cases of preventable disease to occur.” 24/1/2008

The presentation of Palestinians in Israeli schoolbooks of History and Geography 1994-2003 The denial of Palestinian national and territorial identity is still one of the core messages of Israeli textbooks. In a recent study of Israeli textbooks Firer (2004:75) claims that `as political correctness has reached Israel it is no longer appropriate to use blunt, discriminatory language in textbooks`, and then adds that in the years 1967-1990 `the stereotypes of Arabs and Palestinians almost disappear` (ibid. p. 92). 1/1/2008
