• Hamas and Fatah signed an agreement solidifying their unity deal and establishing terms for joint elections. This is approximately the 267th time they’ve done this in the past year. [NYT]

If he was convicted then he is guilty and should serve the time. Throwing rocks can kill someone as he is well aware. He’s old enough to know better. It’s just another expression of Antisemitic aggression and it can not be tolerated. This kind of behavior leads to things much worse…
