Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 25 comments
In an average month Israel holds around 300-340 Palestinian children in administrative detention, i.e. without charge. Some are held for months on end. What has happened to Gilad Shalit is indefensible. But what Israel - which claims to be a democracy and which has ratified various legal instruments (including the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child) - is doing is truly inexcusable. Sitting in New York passing out trite comments about a situation that you don't fully comprehend is really not helpful Roger.
