Program that enrolled users as young as 13 prompts Apple to ban Facebook from publishing some apps

Facebook paid users as young as 13 to install an app that gave the company access to everything their phone sent or received over the internet. In response, Apple has revoked Facebook’s ability to publish certain apps, in a move that could have far-reaching implications for both companies.

سماح مبارك…. ولوم الضحية


سماح مبارك…. ولوم الضحية

ارتقت سماح مبارك ابنة الستة عشر ربيعا هذا الصباح، بعد أن سقطت بفعل طلقات الرصاص من رشاشات الاحتلال. مشهد محزن متكرر في الحياة الفلسطينية. وكأن الأرض لا تكف عن طلب الارتواء من دم أبنائها.

هل نعرف إذا ما حاولت هذه الصبية الطعن؟

هل يبرر محاولة طعنها…
