This issue of the Newsletter covers the period 26-29 April 2018:

The first and most pressing issue was the death of ten teenagers because they were swept by a flood. These teens were on a school trip that was preparing them for their mandatory two-year military duty.


The second was a dispute within the political part Yesh Atid (There is a Future) over the signing of a bill that demands the removal of Knesset member Haneen Zoabi.

Within this newsletter, also, is the culmination of statements made by politicians and deputies of the Knesset that depict their understanding of Palestinian society in general, and Palestinian organizations and activities specifically.

The Palestinian Forum for Israeli Studies (MADAR) is an independent research centre specialising in Israeli affairs, based in Ramallah, Palestine. MADAR was established in 2000 by a group of Palestinian intellectuals and academics, including the late poet Mahmoud Darwish, Dr. Lily Feidy, Dr. Ali Jarbawi, Dr. Ahmad Harb, Mr. Walid Al-Ahmad and Mr. Akram Haniyyeh. The centre was registered as a not-for-profit organisation with the Palestinian Ministry of Interior, and obtained a research centre’s operational licensing from the Palestinian Ministry of Information.
