ethnic cleansing, done cleanly

If you are at all interested in the subject of Israel, which means if you are reading this blog, then you should be reading the Israeli newspaper Haaretz as well. The full paper is published in Hebrew and only part is translated to English but not a day goes by without something valuable to read - it is what a newspaper should be - honest with its readers.

What I want to have you read today is about what has always been suspected - that Israel gets rid of Palestinians in any way it can. Clearly the Nazi method of extermination cannot be undertaken because there would be no way to keep it under wraps, but the motivation is there, always has been since the founding of Zionism, and the feeling that Arabs of any stripe are less than human is widely held (even by my brother-in-law, who, though Jewish, is not Israeli).

So, though no big surprise, it is now official as the headline states - Justice Ministry admits it covertly canceled residency status of 140,000 Palestinians. Please read the story.
