Today's reading assignments

1) An article by the nephew of Benjamin Netanyahu, published a few days ago in the Christian Science Monitor, which lays out many of the ways in which Israel discriminates against non-Jews in Israel (a.k.a. racism and/or apartheid), and makes very clear that the key to peace in the region lies in the United States. As a supplement to that, listen to Nora Barrows-Friedman on Flashpoints, just returned from a month in Israel and occupied Palestine, talk about the same subject (and others) - the treatment of Palestinians within "Israel proper."

2) An article about one of the latest massacres in Afghanistan, in which five "innocent civilians" (of whom three were women, two of them pregnant) were killed by U.S. forces. They now admit it, but just two weeks ago, they were issuing statements claiming that the women had been knifed to death hours before the shooting started.
