Nazi hunters seek German probe of WW2 death squad suspects

BERLIN (Reuters) The Simon Wiesenthal Center has sent the German government a list of 80 people it believes murdered Jews while serving in Nazi death squads in World War Two and who may be still alive, the head of the Israel office of the organisation said. The push for an investigation into members of Einsatzgruppen, or death squads, was triggered by a landmark conviction in 2011 of John Demjanjuk, a guard at the Sobibor death camp, said the Wiesenthal Center's Efraim Zuroff. #facebook #Business #Technology #France #Israel #Mexico #german #article

Jewish settlers occupy Palestinian homes in Old City's shadow

JERUSALEM (Reuters) Israeli police guarded Jewish settlers as they moved into seven homes in a Palestinian neighbourhood of occupied East Jerusalem on Tuesday while stunned and angry Palestinians looked on, aware that there was little they could do. The homes in Silwan, which sits in the shadow of Jerusalem's Old City, were purchased by Elad, a prosettlement group that uses funds from Jewish supporters in the United States and elsewhere to buy properties in Palestinian districts. #facebook #United States #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Israel #Italy #Latin America #Mexico #jewish

Israeli circumcision device provokes union outcry in South Africa

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) South Africa may turn to an Israeli circumcision device to reduce the number of young males who die in botched initiation ceremonies, provoking an outcry from union allies of the ruling party who support sanctions against the Jewish state. Every year, dozens of teenaged South African males die of blood loss or infection in traditional circumcision practices during the initiation ceremonies which are a key rite of passage to manhood, especially among the Xhosa nation. Department of health spokesman Joe Maila told Reuters that the government was still studying the device, known as PrePex, and had not yet decided whether or not to officially sanction its use and make it widely available #United States #Brazil #France #Arabic #Middle East #Israel #Government #markets #South Africa #Argentina #opinion

Life in Israel: Caught amidst hostile neighbours, bad options

Without going into the compelling but competing narratives of why and how Israel landed in what seems a perpetually hostile dynamic, it is easy to see that it is surrounded by hostile neighbors and there is no strategic depth of geography. #HowThisWorks #Syria #Al-Qaeda #Israel #Golan Heights
