Israeli Statistics Do Not Give Real Number of Palestinians in Jerusalem The Palestine Chronicle - According to the official Israeli statistics, around 60,000 Palestinians live in Shu’fat and Kafr Aqab, while the unofficial number is around 140,000. Haaretz cited Maya Hoshen from the Al-Quds Institute said that the number of Palestinians living in Jerusalem is more than 900,000 or 41 per cent. Israel is fearful of Arabs in Jerusalem outnumbering Jewish residents due to political considerations regarding the Arab nature of the holy city, and pressures Palestinians to leave the city while encouraging Jews to move to it.-rh 24/5/2017

How Israeli schools help sabotage peace prospectsJonathan Cook - Information Clearing House - A display of Israeli-style community policing before an audience of hundreds of young schoolchildren was captured on video last week. Were the 10-year-olds offered road safety tips, advice on what to do if they got lost or how to report someone suspicious hanging around the school? No. In Israel, they do things differently.

Jewish Nation-State Bill: Israel’s Precarious Identity Is Palestine’s Nightmare Ramzy Baroud - Countercurrents - The ‘Jewish Nation-State Bill’ is the latest concoction of Israel’s rightwing Zionist Jewish parties, which have dominated Israeli politics for years.

Does Israel really need the Nationality Law?Mazal Mualem - Al-Monitor - The Nationality Law is controversial in Israel because it disrupts the delicate balance between the two main features of the country as both Jewish and democratic. The law provides legal sanction to efforts to bolster Israel`s Jewish identity at the expense of other values, such as the equal and respectful treatment of minorities. One example of this is the law`s designation of Hebrew as the country`s sole official language (contrary to Hebrew and Arabic currently), a fact that ignores the 1.8 million Arabs who make up almost one-quarter of the population. Moreover, Israel’s Declaration of Independence, the founding document establishing Jewish sovereignty over the land of Israel, already validates Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people.-rh 10/5/2017
