Israeli Arabs fear discrimination

BEERSHEBA, Israel — Handcuffed to a wooden chair in the middle of the night, Rafat Awaysha still wasn’t sure what crime he had committed.

Is a lunar eclipse on Sukkot an ominous sign? LOS ANGELES — As we usher in Sukkot, will there be a blood moon rising?

Vote!

If you’re feeling like a zombie lately, don’t worry: It probably has nothing to do with the TV hit “The Walking Dead” or the macabre season that culminates at October’s twilight. More likely it stems from the fact that this year’s political campaigns have, even more than previous elections, treated us as if we’re brainless automatons, wandering aimlessly in the political wilderness, unable to think beyond one-dimensional slogans or childish name-calling. Without doubt, this campa...
