A Palestinian teen who tried to stab an Israeli woman in the West Bank was run over and shot to death. Her father, imam of the refugee camp where she grew up, says his daughter was 'responding to the occupation.'04:30 28.11.15 | 0 comments
I think Israel suffers from shizofrenia. The constant tension between saudi like religious laws and modern, secularism is so clear to me. Israel always parades so proudly that it is the only democracy in the Middle East. Well, pardon me but the laws do NOT reflect that. As an example I give a random gulfstate, the UAE. Private affairs of muslim citizens are governed by shariah (muslim ;aw similar to halacha) but non-muslims and non private affairs are treated under international law. Sounds similar doesn't it? I think Israel will be forced to decide whether or not it wants to be a religious state and be prepared to deal with the consequences either way. Until Israel has a clear goal or identity, it will remain politically instable and at risk in the arab world.
