Twilight Zone / Non-Jews need not applyGideon Levy - Haaretz - "The Israeli national flag flies high, defiant and arrogant over the Palestinian home in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem. This flag has never looked as repulsive as it does in the heart of this Palestinian neighborhood, above the home of a Palestinian family that suddenly lost everything. The head of the house, Mohammed al-Kurd, died 11 days after the eviction. Now his widow lives in a tent. The house is reached via a narrow alley: Here Moshe and Avital Shoham and Emanuel and Yiska Dagan live happily."20/12/2008

Update on the Construction of the Wiesenthal Center Museum of `Tolerance` in JerusalemGershon Baskin - IPCRI - The Wiesenthal Center project in Jerusalem is a disgrace to the Jewish people, the State of Israel and to the City of Jerusalem.

The three new city council members from Meretz, Deputy Mayor Pepe Alalu, Meir Margalit and Laura Wharton have told me that they will bring up this matter urgently in the City Council.

Jerusalem`s Status: To Be Determined Nadia W. Awad - MIFTAH - Despite the significant fact that there are no embassies, only consulates, in Jerusalem, most people around the world are ignorant of one detail: Jerusalem has never been officially recognized as the capital of Israel. On the contrary, most countries consider its status as yet to be determined, with Israel`s control of east Jerusalem considered a very illegal military occupation. As such, recognizing the de facto control of Israel over Jerusalem does not equate to recognizing its sovereignty over the city.3/12/2008
