Will Palestinians Reject Arab Meddling?

What I Learned From Jews

This week and last is the period of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. I know very little about the Jewish religion, but I understand the significance of this holiday.

They were always portrayed as "freedom fighters" in the minority who need to rise against the majority Christian, 9/6/2004, 2:00 AM
