    News First: Near Khursa -- south of Hebron in the Occupied West Bank -- a fire bomb was hurled into an IOF jeep, destroying the vehicle and wounding four IDF soldiers. 65 years is a long time in a man's life, but it is short in historical terms. In 1951 the Knesset enacted the ""Law of Return"" (חוק השבות ) which made instantly ISRAELIS out of immigrants of Jewish origin, while forbidding that right to the Palestinian REFUGEES who were expelled or fled the Israeli Forces. The UN demanded that Israel obey International Law, but Israel still refuses and rejects, and chose to be a PARIAH STATE. Now Israel went a step further: It bans spouses of Palestinians who are Israeli citizens of joining their wives and/or husbands to live in Israel. . . . Israel could change its behaviour and normalize its status. To do that it should enact a law, which will CONFORM with International Law and numerous UN Resolutions. Such a law would allow the return of Palestinian Refugees, and their descendents who would become full citizens of Israel. But Israel prefers to live on its sword and not to listen to the Jewish prophet Isaiah "And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (וכיתתו חרבותם לאיתים, וחניתותיהם למזמרות--לא-יישא גוי אל-גוי חרב, ולא-ילמדו עוד מלחמה)

Netanyahu trades Israel's democracy for a shtetl with German submarines
