The new NATO Strategy was adopted last week at a meeting in Portugal by heads of state of the 28-member NATO alliance while outside over 10,000 marchers shouted "no to war, no to NATO".

"Are you sure you want it?" the owner, M. Pomeranz, asked me half-jokingly. "The Shabak [Israel's internal security service] is going to want a word with you if you do." As customers stopped browsing and began to stare in my direction, Pomeranz pointed to a security camera affixed to a wall. "See that?" he told me. "It goes straight to the Shabak!" more >>

A great man, Abdullah Abu Rahmah, has just been convicted of the most ridiculous and bogus charges by an Israeli court (incitement) for being one of the most effective non-violent organizers in the West Bank. His village of Bil'in, and their struggle to save their land from being cut in half by the Israeli Wall, has won international support and even Israeli court rulings against the Wall route, largely due to his organizing. more >>
