Delay may end up denial. More on that below.
On March 16, 2003, an Israeli bulldozer driver murdered Rachel in cold blood.
Trying to stop a Rafah refugee camp home demolition, eye witnesses said she climbed atop the giant Caterpillar tractor, spoke to the driver, climbed down, knelt 10 - 20 meters in front in clear view, and blocked its path with her body.
With activists screaming for it to stop, the soldier-operator deliberately crushed her to death. To be sure, he ran over her twice.

How can we improve public education for our children?
The answers to this question--and the perspectives on the current quality of public education in the United States--are as varied and individualized as the 55 million students who attend public school in this country. Recently, legislators in Louisiana, like their counterparts in many other states, have sought to improve their state’s educational climate. They have good reason for doing so--in its annual Kids COUNT ratings, meant to evaluate quality of life for children in each state and based on measurements that include educational indices, the Annie E. Casey Foundation consistently ranks Louisiana as 49th (thank you, Mississippi).

When Washington plans regime change, wars are waged if other methods fail.
For over a year, Western-generated violence ravaged Syria. Assad remains firmly in control. As a result, expect war. All signs suggest it.
Annan's so-called peace plan is sham cover for what's planned. A longstanding imperial tool, he's part of the problem, not the solution. Instead of pointing fingers the right way, he blames Syria for insurgent crimes.
So does Ban Ki-moon, calling Assad "fully accountable for grave violations of human rights and international humanitarian law." He added that government forces are using the so-called April 10 halt to violence deadline as an "excuse" to increase it.
Will the United States ever rise above the evils of classism and racism? Is 'poverty' the new black?
The Vermont Council on Rural Development recently held community wide meetings to explore ways of improving life in small town Bennington. Most of the focus is usually on economic development. This time there was also a meeting focused on the issue of poverty. Meetings such as this are held every year or so. They usually result in discussions about having more meetings to decide when to have more meetings about having meetings. Then someone is appointed to write a report about the meetings.
"The destiny of the Jewish people is to return to the land of Israel and reclaim their inheritance promised to Abraham and his descendants forever. This inheritance extends from the River of Egypt to the Euphrates. Within their land, Jerusalem is recognised to be their exclusive, undivided and eternal capital, and therefore it cannot be shared or divided.
At the heart of Jerusalem will be the rebuilt Jewish temple, to which all the nations will come to worship God. Just prior to the return of Jesus, there will be seven years of calamities and war known as the tribulation, which will culminate in a great battle called Armageddon, during which the godless forces opposed to both God and Israel will be defeated.

Abdulhadi is a heroic human rights activist. A previous article discussed him and his ordeal in detail.
April 11 marks his 63rd hunger striking day for justice - if he's still alive. Bahrain won't clarify beyond a short less than reassuring statement. Ruling Al-Khalifa despots keep brutalizing him. They want him dead and silenced.
Among his many distinguished credentials, he co-founded the Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR. He also served as its first president. On April 9, his lawyer, Mohammed Al-Jeshi, expressed fear he died. "Authorities have been refusing since (Sunday) all requests, made by myself and by his family, to visit or contact" him, Jeshi said.
