Middle East news that falls through the cracks

Sometimes its hard to keep up with the disturbing news coming out of Israel and Palestine.

So here’s a good summary of some recent reading:

– Evicted Jewish settlers from Gaza recently found any crimes from the 2005 withdrawal wiped clean from the slate due to a bill in the Knesset.

– Newsflash: some American Jews may be unhappy with increasingly divisive Israeli policies.

– Alex Kane writes in New York’s Indypendent newspaper about his recent visit to Gaza on the one year anniversary of the Israeli onslaught.

– Israeli econoists are alleging that Israel may have illegally withdrawn US$4 billion from Palestinians over four decades for welfare benefits for which they were never entitled.
