by Hank Roth 

There are complexities in Israeli politics which are difficult to understand for Americans who are accustomed to the republican two party system although at times there is nothing very simple about it and corruption is something that can infect any system and none quite so much lately as the American two party system. It just so happens the American system has always been flawed.

"Honor Killings" 

"Sirhan, a 35-year-old murderer, is cheerful and relaxed and happy to tell his story. He's especially proud to describe the efficiency with which he shot his young sister Suzanne in the head four times last March. "She came to the house at 8:15," he relates, "and by 8:20 she was dead." Three days before, the 16-year-old girl had reported to police that she had been raped. "She committed a mistake, even if it was against her will," says Sirhan.

Religious Fanatics and Apocolyptic Visions

by Hank Roth

It helps to "obliterate from the practical dialogue the history of the Jews as "Palestinian people," and having in fact denied Jewish historical ties to their Holy Land (as in, for example, Article 20 of the PLO Covenant), the Arabs have consistently claimed that in the proposed `secular democratic state in Palestine,' most of the Jews who are now in their homeland of Israel would have to depart, presumably back to their countries of origin--including the little known major component of Arab-born Jews."

Mastering the Jews; Whose Land? part # 3

The defeat of the Jews by the Muslims (Guillaume) was a formula for Islam's future. Some of the Jews were permitted to retain their land 
-- (until Muslims could replace them). Arabian Jews who survived as subjects of conquest were compelled to pay extortion - a 50% tax for their protection and this became the "basis for later dealings of the same type." [See Lewis, "Arabs" - page 47]
