Israel Is Doing Everything to Separate Gaza, West Bank

Israel wants Hamas rule in Gaza because it guarantees the disconnect between the Strip and the West Bank.

An elephant will be sitting Wednesday in the courtroom of Supreme Court justices Asher Grunis, Salim Joubran and Noam Sohlberg. The elephant will occupy the places of the five plaintiffs, who will be absent: five women from the Gaza Strip who were accepted into Bir Zeit University in the West Bank. Four want to go on to a master's degree in gender studies.
