Studies show that US coverage is Israeli-centric. The main bureaus for CNN, Associated Press, Time, etc. are located in Israel and often staffed by Israelis. The son of the NY Times bureau chief is in the Israeli army;"pundit" Jeffrey Goldberg served in the IDF; Wolf Blitzer worked for AIPAC. Because the U.S. gives Israel over $8 million/day - more than to any other nation - we feel it is essential that we be fully informed on this region. Below are news reports to augment mainstream coverage.

Israel to seizure 189 dunums of Palestinian land in Nablus

Wafa– Israeli forces Wednesday handed landowners seizure notices to take over 189 dunums (1 Dunum=1000 Square Meters) of Palestinian land in Qaryut, a village south of Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, the official of the settlement file in the north of the West Bank said that Israeli forces banned the Palestinians from entering their land, which they considered ‘state property’.

The notices said that “anyone who can prove ownership of the land can object to Salem District Court within 45 days,” said Daghlas.
