As usual Dany Wakil presents his distorted view of the Palestine/Israel conflict. His assertion that Arabs expelled other Arabs from their own lands to facilitate the murder of Jews is a bizarre one. He pointedly omits the role of Hagana and the Stern gang in the process of driving Palestinians from their country; to say that Palestine was never an official national entity doesn’t detract from the fact that Palestinians have regarded themselves as one people for centuries, and incidentally a large portion of the population of Jordan are Palestinian refugees.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
