Volunteers defy police and traffickers with refugee convoy

Refugee convoyVolunteers from Austria and Germany have collected hundreds of Syrians from Hungary, driving them out of the country in defiance of possible arrest and criminal gangs that charge huge sums to smuggle refugees to Western Europe.

The convoy of more than 150 cars crossed safely back into Austria early Monday morning, as officials there sought a return to normal border and asylum procedures after a weekend in which more than 12,000 refugees arrived from Hungary.

WATCH: Masked Israeli youth attack Palestinian in Hebron

israelis attack PalestinianA Palestinian man was attacked by masked Israeli youth at the Beit Hadassah checkpoint in Hebron on Saturday, as an IDF soldier helplessly tried to separate the man from his attackers.

The Israelis beat him with their fists, kicked him, and one even attacked him with pepper spray.

A Palestinian source speaking to Ynet recounted the chain of events that led to the assault. According to the source, two Palestinians were stopped for questioning by a soldier at the checkpoint. Several minutes later, he let one of them go and took the other with him back to the army post.

That entire time, a group of young Israelis stood nearby.


Israel lets Mordechai Vanunu discuss its nuclear program on primetime TV

VanunuIn a remarkable departure from decades of nuclear secrecy, Israel’s military censors permitted nuclear spy Mordechai Vanunu to give a lengthy interview to primetime Israeli television on Friday night, in a move that took Israel closer than ever to acknowledging the existence of its nuclear arsenal.

The interview on Israel’s Channel 2 news featured several fascinating revelations and anecdotes, but its most dramatic aspect by far was that Vanunu — who was barred from giving interviews under the terms of his release from 18 years in jail for treason in 2004 — was allowed to speak freely, with the full permission of Israel’s security establishment, about what his interviewer termed his exposure of “one of Israel’s greatest secrets.”


Palestinian teachers, students strike in Israel over school budget cuts

Christian Israelis strikeMore than 30,000 Palestinian students missed the start of a new school year this week after 47 Christian schools in Israel launched a strike to protest state policies that staff and community members say are cutting off financial support to their institutions.

In recent years, Israel’s Ministry of Education has cut vital funding to the schools and imposed caps on how much tuition they can charge. “The cuts on the one hand, and the circular restricting collections on the other are dealing a death blow to the Christian schools,” one principal told Israeli news website Haaretz.
