Israel’s Supreme Court on February 12, 2015, exempted the Israeli defense ministry from liability for actions by its forces that it deemed to be “wartime activity,” but wrongly refused to assess whether those actions violated applicable laws of armed conflict, Human Rights Watch said. read full story / add a comment

Israel’s decision to withhold Palestinian tax funds caused presidential “double speak” in Israel and could be the final straw that breaks the back of the 1993 Oslo Accords. read full story / add a comment
