Live Updates: America Mourns, Searches for Answers After Historic Las Vegas Shooting

LAS VEGAS, NV - OCTOBER 2: Mourners attend a candlelight vigil at the corner of Sahara Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard for the victims of Sunday night's mass shooting, October 2, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Late Sunday night, a lone gunman killed more than 50 people and injured more than 500 people after he opened fire on a large crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, a three-day country music festival. The massacre is one of the deadliest mass shooting events in U.S. history. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)
Two days after the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, the nation is still learning the identities of the 59 people who were murdered and more than 500 who were wounded, stories of heroism from the slain and survivors, and more information about the mysterious killer, Stephen Paddock, who apparently snuck an arsenal of weapons into the 32nd floor of Las Vegas’s Mandalay Bay hotel and casino.

A new threat to Israel’s apartheid state: Bedouin toddlers – Arab News

As much of the world engages with a variety of security threats ranging from car rammings, bombings and stabbings to neo-Nazi white supremacist marches, the Israeli army has been dealing with its own security priorities too. This supposed democratic bastion of western civilization does indeed have many legitimate security threats but one does have to wonder how a small Portakabin serving as a Bedouin kindergarten in the West Bank threatened the might of the Israeli army. A kindergarten. Who was it used by? Palestinian refugee children. This was not some military training center or weapons factory but a ramshackle education establishment for toddlers serving the small community of Jabal Al Baba, 4km to the east of Jerusalem. It warranted an early morning visit of Israeli forces that wiped the site clean, taking all the school equipment as well. Nothing was left at all. If you visit this small community of 56 families you see the residue of previous demolitions, even of the threatening animal pens. All in all, their community head tells me, 48 structures have been demolished in the past three years. Originally there were forced out of the Negev desert in Israel in 1950. Intriguingly this small plot of land is part owned by the Vatican, hence the name Jabal Al Baba or Popes mountain. It was in fact a gift from King Hussein of Jordan to the then Pope Paul VI during his 1964 visit. The week before this round of demolitions, Israeli soldiers had been removing threatening solar panels that supplied the kindergarten and elementary school of the neighboring community of Abu Nuwar. The existing classroom is now too hot even to be used and they make use of the local barbershop for elementary school classes. In February 2016, trailers donated by the French government for use as a school were demolished. Back in 2014, I had visited another Bedouin community close by that had had its newly installed swings confiscated because they constituted an illegal construction. An incredible 56 Palestinian schools in Area C communities in the West Bank have Israeli demolition orders outstanding against them. The Israeli excuse is that these buildings do not have permits and are illegal. Who issues, or rather does not issue permits? The Israeli military authorities. Who in the West Bank build illegally, often without permits, without threat of demolition and typically with official assistance? Israeli settlers.

The demolition of a small kindergarten on prime real estate east of Jerusalem is part of a larger settlement project that will make any Palestinian state unviable.
