A new environmental report compiled by “Green Now” in conjunction with the Association of Cities in Judea and Samaria was presented for the first time at a conference which took place at the end of last month. The conference, held in Ariel and a first of its kind, focused on environmental issues in Judea and Samaria.
The Conference was held following a report published by Dr. Nitzan Levy, the Managing Director of environmental issues at the Association of Cities in the Judea region. The report described the current environmental situation in the Judea and Samaria region. The primary findings are that the environment is in danger, and therefore harm is caused to the quality of life of the residents living in these areas. Despite the significant conclusion that damage is being caused to both the Jewish and Arab populations residing in these areas, and despite the importance of protecting the environment, many environmental organizations chose not to attend the conference and even banned it because the conference was held in Ariel.

Accusée d’avoir brûlé des pages contenant des versets du Coran, attaquée par une horde fanatisée, elle a été remise à la police par l’imam de son quartier qui maintient ses accusations : elle aurait agi volontairement.
En vertu (si l’on peut dire !) de la loi antiblasphème elle risque la peine de la mort.
Elle est détenue dans la même prison que l’assassin de Salman Taseer, le gouverneur du Pendjab qui avait soutenu Asia Bibi et plaidé pour une réforme de la loi sur le blasphème. Continue reading
Institut de recherche et d’études stratégiques de Khyber (IRESK), a partner of International Alliance against Terrorism (IAAT) express its deep concern over continuing atrocities and terrorism on children in Pakistan particularly in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). Children and the schools have been the prime target of the terrorists who leave no stone unturned to achieve their heinous objectives.
In the month of July, 2012, more than 19 children have been killed and 21 injured in different terrorist attacks. These statistics reported represent a tip of an ice-berg as most of the areas controlled by the Taliban and terrorist out-fits have not been accessible in Pakistan
