Ezies Elias Shehada
by Chris Carlson
(Haaretz) She stood in the middle of Eilat Airport's small departures hall, and her eyes said it all. An impressive, well-dressed woman with an assertive face, only her burning eyes betrayed the insult she felt. "I'm so ashamed," she said, and the tears began to fall.
