11 new outposts planned during Mitchell visit

Right-wing organizations are planning to set up 11 new West Bank outposts in two days.

The groups, led by the Land of Faithful movement, have called on right-wing activists to found the outposts on Monday and Tuesday while U.S. Middle East envoy George Mitchell is visiting Israel.

The number 11 is a reference to the 11 Negev settlements set up in one night in 1946 during the British Mandate.

And That’s Not the Way It Is

What matters about Cronkite is that he knew when to stop being reassuring Uncle Walter and to challenge those who betrayed his audience’s trust. He had the guts to confront not only those in power but his own bosses. Given the American press’s catastrophe of our own day — its failure to unmask and often even to question the White House propaganda campaign that plunged us into Iraq — these attributes are as timely as ever.
