Today is Jerusalem Day, wherein oblivious Israelis celebrate the
"unification" of a city whose "unity" is not recognized by the
international community, where Arab East Jerusalem and 28 Palestinian
villages were erased to make way for Jewish homes and three-quarters of
Palestinian children now live in poverty. From Haaretz, a look at
Israeli denial on the subject of Palestinian
repression, and the cost on both sides.

oppresses
