Op-ed: The marriage between Lucy Aharish and Tsahi Halevi, an Arab-Israeli Muslim and a Jew, is a joyous occasion. The state may not recognize interfaith marriages, but the liberal public does, and we must hope that liberals in Israel remain strong to protect mixed families from facing the challenges lying ahead.
Op-ed: The defense minister, who immigrated to Israel years after the initial expulsion of the Jahalin Bedouin tribe from their homes, wants to evict Khan al-Ahmar's residents out of concern for their safety; If Lieberman were concerned about their security and health, he would not have insisted on expelling them to a waste landfill or a sewage treatment facility.
Op-ed: The entry of fuel into Gaza did not succeed in bringing about calm. If anything, Friday's protests were an escalation as the fence was breached as 20 terrorists attempted to enter Israel, 3 of whom shot dead by the IDF; such an incident can plausibly result in an abrupt flare-up.
Analysis: the escalation of violent confrontations along the Gaza border fence, the transfer of fuel tanks, and Abbas's indifference; critical decisions will be made in the coming days in Gaza, Ramallah, Jerusalem, and Cairo.
