Good Morning from the Zundelsite:




I have intermittently shipped information obtained from "Mid-East Realities: Making Sense of the Middle East" - located at www.MiddleEast.Org -

This one is a Charley Reese column (2-8-1998) of the Orlando Sentinel Staff, and I assume that MER has permission to distribute it, since MER asks its readers to "pass it along".

MER also comments:

"It's not too often these days that you find an American journalist or politician speaking up about the extraordinarily close and hypocritical U.S./Israeli alliance."

Thought for the Day - long but relevant:

"The Israelis have arrested thousands of Palestinians and they have refused to allow these Palestinians the right of legal defense or the right to know the charges against them, the laws they are accused of breaking, or even the identities of their accusers or the nature of the evidence that is being used to justify their arrests.

"These detainees are held in maximum security prisons in Israel for periods of up to six months, and the detention can be renewed on the whim of an Israeli magistrate or military administrator without ever giving the prisoner a chance to defend himself or herself."
