The product of painstaking research and countless interviews, A High Price offers a nuanced, definitive historical account of Israel's bold but often failed efforts to fight terrorist groups. Beginning with the violent border disputes that emerged after Israel's founding in 1948, Daniel Byman charts the rise of Yasser Arafat's Fatah and leftist groups such as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine--organizations that ushered in the era of international terrorism epitomized by the 1972 hostage-taking at the Munich Olympics. Byman reveals how Israel fought these groups and others, such as Hamas, in the decades that follow, with particular attention to the grinding and painful struggle during the second intifada. Israel's debacles in Lebanon against groups like the Lebanese Hizballah are examined in-depth, as is the country's problematic response to Jewish terrorist groups that have struck at Arabs and Israelis seeking peace. In surveying Israel's response to terror, the author points to the coups of shadowy Israeli intelligence services, the much-emulated use of defensive measures such as sky marshals on airplanes, and the role of controversial techniques such as targeted killings and the security barrier that separates Israel from Palestinian areas. Equally instructive are the shortcomings that have undermined Israel's counterterrorism goals, including a disregard for long-term planning and a failure to recognize the long-term political repercussions of counterterrorism tactics. 1.

Pamela L. Laskin's beautiful and lyrical novel in verse delivers a fresh and captivating retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet that transports the star-crossed lovers to the modern-day Israel-Palestine conflict. Ronit, an Israeli girl, lives on one side of the fence. Jamil, a Palestinian boy, lives on the other side. Only miles apart but separated by generations of conflict - much more than just the concrete blockade between them. Their fathers, however, work in a distrusting but mutually beneficial business arrangement, a relationship that brings Ronit and Jamil together. And lightning strikes. The kind of lightning that transcends barrier fences, war, and hatred. The teenage lovers fall desperately into the throes of forbidden love, one that would create an irreparable rift between their families if it were discovered. But a love this big can be kept secret for only so long. Ronit and Jamil must face the fateful choice to save their lives or their love, as it may not be possible to save both. 1. Language: English.

Many environmental problems have to do with energy use, it is therefore very surprising that profitable opportunities to reduce energy consumption, awarding both economical and environmental benefits, are not more widely implemented. This work lists examples of such technological opportunities, discusses the barriers to their adoption, and suggests policy solutions to overcome these barriers. The focus group for this research are municipalities as energy users, mainly in Israel and Sweden. The author concludes that increase use of environmental technologies is possible, many times with economic gains even in the short range. Municipalities alone cannot be expected to take upon themselves the risks and costs of adoption of these new technologies, and therefore central government has a crucial role in creating a supportive environment for such a process. The main barrier to such a development is conservatism of public officials and decision makers.

Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) refers to an international economic campaign initiated by the July 9, 2005, call of 171 Palestinian non-governmental organizations "... for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel Until it Complies with International Law and Universal Principles of Human Rights." In January 2005 the Occupied Palestine and Syrian Golan Heights Advocacy Initiative (OPGAI) presented a call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel to the 5th World Social Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil (26 January and 31 January). The launch of the campaign coincided with the first anniversary of the International Court of Justice ruling on the Israeli West Bank barrier. In one of the first boycott campaigns the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) worked closely with the British Committee for Universities of Palestine (BRICUP) which lobbied the Association of University Teachers (AUT) to adopt an academic boycott of Israeli universities.

Qalqilya Zoo is a small zoo covering an area of approximately 20,000 square metres in the Palestinian farming town of Qalqilya on the western edge of the West Bank. Established in 1986, it is the only municipal zoo in the West Bank. Considered the foremost tourist attraction in Qalqilya, there are about 170 animals at the zoo, which also houses a Natural History Museum, children's entertainment park, and on-site restaurant. Before the Israeli military closure of the West Bank and the encirclement of Qalqilya by the Israeli West Bank barrier, there was an average of 3,000 visitors per year. The numbers have since dropped significantly, though the site remains locally popular. The zoo was the brainchild of a former Qalqilya mayor who came to be poorly regarded by most Palestinians because he is considered to have been a collaborator with Israel. Israeli zoos helped to stock it and it was designed to be a symbol of Arab-Israeli cooperation. When it opened in 1986, the zoo was considered "a jewel in the crown of Palestinian national institutions".
