The Security Council voted unanimously on Monday to strongly condemn Israel for its recent decision to expel 12 Palestinian activists from the occupied territories. Israel's plans brought protests from Arab delegations who delayed their departure for the Middle East peace talks in Washington. But in his statement to the council, Nasser Kidwa, Palestine's permanent observer at the United Nations, indicated that the talks, which adjourned Dec. 18, would resume.

Arab delegations made plans Tuesday to resume Middle East peace negotiations here with Israel. The Bush Administration suggested that the Arabs move more quickly. "So far the Israeli delegation has arrived," State Department spokeswoman Margaret D. Tutwiler said. "It is the only delegation that has arrived in Washington. It is disappointing that the other parties are not present to begin these important talks."

Palestinian-American activist Mubarak Awad ended a hunger strike in its sixth day Tuesday, and he was transferred to a maximum-security prison, his American-born wife, Nancy Nye, said. The government has blamed Awad, who advocates civil disobedience against Israel's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, for inciting violence. Awad was arrested Thursday, soon after Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir ordered his expulsion from Israel as an American citizen whose tourist visa had expired.

As 415 deported Palestinians shuttled across a no-man's-land in southern Lebanon, trying to regain entry to Israel but retreating in the face of gunfire, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin on Monday defended his government's much-criticized decision to expel them. He declared that Israel is ready to take even tougher measures to cope with guerrilla attacks.

Face splotched in blood, eyes closed, mouth aslant, the child seems to be slumbering, but she is dead. The only part of her you see is her head tilting in ash and rubble above the caption, "A day of massacres in Gaza." She is nameless, but her face, peeking from a black-and-white photograph spread like a flag of horror across the Saudi-owned Al Hayat newspaper, is unforgettable. In the Gaza Strip, Israel maneuvers with sophisticated tanks, missiles and planes.
OPINION
January 25, 2004 | George Bisharat, George Bisharat is a professor at the University of California's Hastings College of Law.
It is a tragic irony that, more than 55 years ago, one desperate people seeking sanctuary from murderous racism decimated another -- and continue to oppress its scattered survivors to this day. In 1948, about 700,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homeland, their land and possessions taken by the new Jewish state of Israel. This included the Jerusalem home of my grandparents, Hanna and Mathilde Bisharat, which was expropriated through a process tantamount to state-sanctioned theft.
OPINION
November 3, 2002 | David Grossman, Israeli novelist David Grossman is the author, most recently, of "Be My Knife."
I might begin this piece, now that the second anniversary of the second intifada has come and gone, with the day that Ariel Sharon made his entry into the Temple Mount and set off a conflagration in the occupied territories. But the story could actually begin in any of the seven years that preceded September 2000. During that period, Israel and the Palestinians did everything in their power to disrupt and confound the fragile agreement they cobbled together at Oslo.
