Families of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli Jails:
“Our Sons are not terrorists, the real terrorists are the Zionist child-killers”
From Khalid Amayreh in al-Khalil
November 29, 2009 – Abu Yasser is an elderly Palestinian farmer living in the southern part of the West Bank. He keeps his eyes glued to Al-Jazeera Television channel these days to follow up the latest news regarding the German-mediated talks between Israel and Hamas over a possible prisoner-exchange deal.

The US “war on the internet”
Liz Burbank, the burbank digest

By RICHARD LARDNER (AP)
November 29, 2009 — Postpone the health care overhaul until next year so Congress can concentrate on how to pay for President Barack Obama’s expected plans for expanding military operations in Afghanistan, a leading Republican senator said Sunday. Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana, the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said a sharp focus is needed for Obama’s new strategy for the 8-year war and how much it will cost. Many issues should be considered, he said, including the possibility of raising taxes to pay for operations in Afghanistan…
