Letter from America: Israel’s Nazi-like criminal campaign in Gaza

Back in the early 1980s when I was a graduate student at University of California, the student community organized a seminar on the Palestine-Israel conflict. It was before the 1982 invasion of Lebanon (oddly codenamed Operation Peace for Galilee), but Israel had already annexed a strip of southern Lebanon since 1978, and had continued to occupy it in defiance of the UN Resolution 425 that called for Israel to immediately and unconditionally withdraw.

Modi Raj In Public Perception

Rather than regretting that he was denied the pleasure of a 100-day ‘honeymoon’, Narendra Modi, the prime minister, should be pondering about the negative public perception of certain actions his government taken soon after assuming power. Of course, there are not decisions like the Saarc constellation at his swearing-in ceremony that have been universally hailed, though the worth of those gestures will be known only later.
