The stones tell the story. They litter alleyways and doorsteps, line roadways stained black by scorch marks from burning tires and firebombs, sit loose and at the ready atop crumbling rock walls. Hardly a day goes by without a stone-throwing clash between young Palestinians and Israeli security forces in some traditionally Arab corner of the holy city, skirmishes that often escalate to the point that police break out what are described as intense but nonlethal methods of crowd control: stun grenades, tear gas or a foul-smelling, retch-inducing liquid known as "skunk water."

Israeli Supreme Court criticised over law allowing communities to vet potential newcomers

| September 18, 2014

Arab rights group Adalah warned that the law would "entrench social segregation" and called it "one of the most racist in years", while the Association for Civil Rights in Israel said it feared that that the legislation would allow communities to reject homosexuals, Arabs, disabled people and any other minorities. However, advocacy groups said that other parts of the law allow residents to reject potential newcomers based on vague criteria of social suitability and whether or not the people in question would suit the social and cultural fabric of the community. According to Adalah, 434 small communities in Israel will be able to use the law to reject potential inhabitants
