Op-Ed: Will education be the next security risk in the Occupied Territories?
The Israeli military raid on Al-Quds University in Jerusalem is ironic in light of the recent claim by the Israeli military that Palestinian textbooks incite students against the Israeli government. That claim, repeatedly debunked by U.S. academics, misses the point, writes Lara Harb. The occupation -- not to mention the ongoing attack on primary schools and universities -- provides a far more provocative education than anything a textbook could ever convey.

Op-Ed: Censorship and violence in the Middle East
A hard look at what Israeli military censors cut from news articles before their publication reveals a pattern, writes Elliott Colla.
