Israeli judges order grandchildren out of Jerusalem family’s home – How can anyone defend this shameful act?

The Ghaith-Sub Laban family’s six-year legal battle to remain in their home of six decades has come to an end, as the Israeli high court made a final ruling in the family’s eviction case on Wednesday.After Jewish settlers rejected the court’s proposed compromise on Tuesday, the Israeli judges returned a more favorable verdict to the settlers: allowing the Ghaith-Sub Laban family to remain in their home for only 10 more years, and at that point terminating their protected tenancy.Without protected tenancy, the settler organization that owns the building can evict the family.But the court has ordered the descendants of Mustafa Sub Laban and Nora Ghaith, whose mother first moved into their house in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City in East Jerusalem in 1953, to leave their home.Nora and Mustafa currently live in the house with a daughter, two sons, a daughter-in-law and two grandchildren aged 4 and 9.

YouTube Stars Say They Were Removed From Delta Flight for Speaking Arabic – The New York Times

Chris Ashford, 47, who was aboard the plane after a layover in London, said that he believed that the woman had “overreacted.”“She heard somebody speaking in Arabic, and assumed the worst,” he said.He added that while he thought Delta acted in the interest of some of its passengers, that “I do think it was heavy-handed, kicking the guy off the plane and then removing his bags.”Rev. Karen Georgia Thompson, 51, was also on the plane. Although she could not judge the airline’s actions as she only witnessed some of the disruption, Ms. Thompson did say that both parties should have been removed.“If you’re going to investigate, how are you going to investigate one side of an altercation?” she said.
