Two opinion pieces of note from the Chicago Sun-Times:
- Jay Bushinsky on PA intimidation of journalists:
The PA’s first decade of existence has been a nightmare for Palestinian journalists, especially the independent thinkers and analysts among them.
- Anne Bayefsky on the UN’s policy toward Israel:
The International Court of Justice in the Hague is being asked by the U.N. General Assembly to provide advice on the ”legal consequences” of Israel’s security fence…One element, however, is missing: the human rights of Israelis. Annan’s report does not describe a single terrorist act against Israelis.
The U.N. message is clear: The human rights of Israelis are not part of the equation.
