No Festival


Police in Jerusalem disrupted events and arrested organizers of a Palestinian Culture Festival on Saturday, saying the gathering was illegal because it was within the disputed Jerusalem's jurisdiction. Organizers of the event, sponsored by the Palestinian Authority, said it was meant as a cultural celebration.

"This government is not only an enemy of any hope for peace, but
also an enemy of culture and all that is humane," he said.
