Israel/Palestine News


Palestinian minister Ziad Abu Ein died shortly after an Israeli border
policeman shoved and grabbed him by the throat during a protest in the
occupied West Bank. An autopsy is being carried out with Palestinian,
Israeli and Jordanian pathologists.


Illegal Israeli settlements continue to grow in the occupied West Bank
and East Jerusalem, and people like Canadian-Israeli Miriam Schwab are
moving into predominantly Palestinian areas. Many Palestinian families
worry they will be forced out of the city where they've lived for
generations. In 2009, Israel evicted the Hanoun family from the home
they had lived in since 1956. Sherihan Hanoun says no one has the right
to take away the home where she was born and has a history.
