    "Media attention has recently focused on the effort to obtain residency rights for children of foreign workers. But Majed Koka is not a foreign worker. " // The West Bank spouses of Arabs who are (still) allowed to live in Jerusalem are not foreign workers either.// Back to Haaretz's text "Koka's mother is from Jerusalem and does have permanent residency here. But she never bothered arranging residency rights in Israel for her son, even though for the first five years of his life, the family lived in Jaffa and then in Haifa." // The Palestinians who were born here build settlements for the settlers but are not considered foreign workers, and there's a whole knotted skein of laws designed to make sure they aren't considered Israeli residents either. We weep crocodile tears instead for labour we have imported from the outside, whose children are allowed into our schools while even Palestinian children in 'annexed', 'united' East Jerusalem are not. That's Israel today!

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
