Mideast Narratives Done In By Camels

Mideast Narratives Done In By Camels

Is it time to shut down the Zionist project? A pair of professors from Tel Aviv U. did some carbon dating of the Mideast’s oldest camel bones. The study (pdf format) was picked up by the NY Times, and from there, National Geographic, Time, and others. Why the interest? The researchers , Erez Ben-Yosef and

Saeb Erekat Can’t Stop Spinning

He now claims he quit because PaliLeaks happened on his watch. Not because of the substance of the documents, or because his life’s in danger.
