‘Counter arguments to the veil ban’: this is a summary of a Martha Nussbaum NYT article (and her response to comments), exposing from a social and legislative perspective the poor islamophobic veil ban arguments.

british Jews support israeli war crimes’:

The Guardian was also quick to report that  77% of “British Jews favour a ‘two-state solution’ in Israel”.

Professor Dan McGowan pointed out recently that  Israel and Palestine are in fact  “one country with one water system, one electrical grid, one monetary system, one telephone system and one postal system.  It is already one state, although half the population has lesser rights or none at all.” Bearing McGowan’s insight, I wonder what drives 77% of British Jews? Why don’t they really welcome Palestinian people to return to their land and enjoy exactly the same civil rights British Jews celebrate in the UK?

Effectiveness of the ‘Boycott israel movement’.
