ei: Why Israel is after my son

ei: Why Israel is after my son: "The persecution of Palestinian citizens inside Israel is not a new phenomenon. Yet, for me, this time it hit home. The Israeli intelligence agency Shabak, also known as the Shin Bet, accuses my son Rawi Sultani of 'contact with a foreign agent' and 'delivering information to the enemy.' Both are grave security offenses in Israeli law. These and similar offenses were used against many Palestinian leaders and activists such as Azmi Bishara of the National Democratic Assembly (NDA), Raed Salah of the Islamic Movement and Muhammad Kanaaneh of Sons of the Land. At times, even Jewish political activists sympathetic to Palestinians like Tali Fahima are similarly accused.

Rawi, a 23-year-old law student and a political activist of the NDA, is being charged in the district court of Petach Tikva with having contact with Hizballah members in order to deliver information on the whereabouts of the Israeli army's chief of staff."

For an extra 2,000 bucks, you can have the rusted-out Honda Prelude right behind him, the one that, as a matter of fact, has just burst into flames -- and, he assures you, it's a dandy. It may not look so great today, what with the smoking hood and all, but it's a vehicle for the ages.
Would you buy a used car from this man? (Hint…

“We gather tonight knowing that this generation of
heroes has made the United States safer and more

As Easter was
celebrated in the US and UK with, for believers, the
message of hope, Fallujah, the region and much of
the country is again under siege, not this time by
US mass murderers, but by the US proxy government’s
militias armed with US delivered weapons. In 2003, a
month into the invasion, Easter Day fell on the same
day as this year, 20th April, as Iraqis of all
denominations and none, died were incarcerated,
tortured, found with their heads drilled, or no
heads, thrown on garbage piles. Easter Day
