And Now Dershowitz!

| DAMASCUS -- At UNWRA offices around the
Levant this Winter Solstice, the day which astronomically marks the
reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days, ‘winters
midterm’, is not being celebrated as it has been since ancient times
when festivals, gatherings, rituals feasting, singing, dancing,
and bonfires were the norm. The winter solstice historically has been vitally
important because communities were not certain of living through the winter,
and had to prepare during the previous nine months for dramatic rises
in starvation, communicable diseases, and infant deaths due
to hypothermia were particularly common during the first months of the winter,
which became known as "the famine months" in the northern hemisphere.
Preparing for a tough next few months is what the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) is doing these days and the UN Specialized Agency is working in the face of daunting odds. UNWRA was founded in 1949 and for more than 60 years it has been plagued by harassments, intimidation, and countless conspiracies to close it down waged by the international Zionist lobby increasingly trying to ‘put it out of its misery’ as Prime Minister Netanyahu recently demanded from the US Congress.
