    Clash in tense Israeli-Arab town

    BBC NEWS | Middle East | Clash in tense Israeli-Arab town

    Israeli-Arab protesters have clashed with police as Jewish Israeli right-wingers marched in the majority-Arab town of Umm al-Fahm.
    Thirteen arrests were made as police used tear gas and water cannon to disperse stone-throwing protesters.
    Israeli-Arab residents of the town view the march as highly provocative and had vowed to stop it.
    The High Court gave permission for the march, but police had postponed it several times, fearing violence.
    About 2,500 police in riot gear flanked about 100 far-right activists as they marched on the outskirts of the town, waving Israeli flags.


    Remind anyone else of the Stokie march?
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    What the hell is an Israeli-Arab?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    one fifth of the population of Israel (defining Israel as Israel proper and excluding both Gaza and the West Bank) is ethnically Arab and non-Jewish (and generally practices Islam, although some are Christians).

    they're widely accepted to be treated as second class citizens.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
