Koutsoukis; Israeli Taliban

I know I criticise Koutsoukis quite a bit. Here, he reports on Amnesty’s report on water in the occupied territories. It’s good that he did. I wish the public cared. Sometimes I just feel completely furious. Palestinians in Gaza HAVE NO WATER. ISRAEL HAS A RESPONSIBILITY TO SUPPLY ALL GAZANS WITH WATER, and over the course of 42 years it has actually destroyed their water, and is actively preventing Gazans from importing needed supplies to fix their water. I mean, what can be said about this? I’ve said barbaric over and over. How can no one notice? Why does no one scream? How racist have we become when we don’t care that 1.5 million people have been deprived of their water resources?


Also, Haaretz reports on Israeli Taliban.Readers may suspect I don’t much like the Haredi.

An activist in Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox Eda Haredit community was conditionally released from prison Monday, a day after his arrest for allegedly spraying an ultra-Orthodox woman with tear gas in the capital’s Mea She’arim neighborhood.

Yoel Kraus was arrested after the woman filed a police complaint. The alleged attack occured about two weeks ago, during the Sukkot holiday, as the woman was walking on a “men only” sidewalk, and refused Kraus’ demand that she move to the women’s side.
