For the first time the US has listed attacks by Israelis on Palestinians as terrorist attacksfollowing two terrible incidents over the last few days: the fire bombing of a family in a taxi, and a lynching of young Palestinians in Jerusalem.

Guardian under fire 
The Guardian's newest columnist, Joshua Trevino, tweeted last year that he would be ‘cool’ if Israel’s armed forces shot dead US civilians if they attempted to sail to Gaza on Freedom Flotilla II. US civilians preparing to sail on the flotilla included a Holocaust survivor and the Pulitzer-prize winning author, Alice Walker.
PSC’s letter expressing outrage at the appointment of Trevino to the Guardian’s editorial team was printed in Guardian online on Sunday (19/8). The letter was signed by 26 heads of organisations, parliamentary representatives, academics and actors.
