Authorities Crush Dissent in Palestine

The Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas authorities in Gaza routinely arrest and torture peaceful critics and opponents, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. As the Palestinian Authority-Hamas feud has deepened, each has targeted the other’s supporters. The 145-page report, “Two Authorities, One Way, Zero Dissent,” evaluates patterns of arrest and detention conditions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip 25 years after the Oslo Accords granted Palestinians a degree of self-rule over these areas, and more than a decade after Hamas seized effective control over the Gaza Strip. Human Rights Watch detailed more than two dozen cases of people detained for no clear reason beyond writing a critical article or Facebook post or belonging to the wrong student group or political movement.

Hamas is destroying Gaza

Since taking over Gaza by force in 2007, Hamas has done nothing to help the people of Gaza, and chose to devote its resources to encouraging violence and terrorism, all aimed at destroying Israel, instead of building hospitals or investing in better education for the people of Gaza.

Why is the US cutting aid to refugees?

The US announced it's working on a three billion dollar aid cut, including to refugee organizations. But why?

All refugees should be treated fairly: let the UN know!

UNHCR operates in 128 countries and resettles at a rate of over one million refugees per decade:http://rsq.unhcr.org/en/#8UFk or http://www.unhcr.org/figures-at-a-gla...
