Schwarzenegger takes center stage in US health reform Washington Post "We're really seeing the return of universal health coverage to the national dialogue" ....... California's Republican governor -- a budding reformer who has also crossed party lines to back a state law aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions ....... require everyone in the state to carry insurance .... Insurers would no longer be able to deny coverage based on age or pre-existing health conditions and overhead would be limited to $15 of every $100 in premiums. ...... Massachusetts, which has a population about as large as California's ranks of uninsured, last year became the first state to pass a law requiring all individuals to buy health coverage. ...... overwhelming hospital emergency rooms with very sick people who cannot pay and who, by law, cannot be turned away. ...... governors in states like Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont already have adopted plans to cover virtually everyone. ........ Schwarzenegger, nursing a broken leg from a holiday ski accident, has received kudos for bringing relevant interest groups -- doctors, insurers, hospitals, small business, unions and the Democrats that control the state legislature -- to the table. .......... Health care reform is an interlocking puzzle ... if someone tries to take their piece out, it doesn't work.

Yes, there is apartheid in Israel Arab American News through its army, the government of Israel practices a brutal form of apartheid in the territory it occupies. Its army has turned every Palestinian village and town into a fenced-in, or blocked-in, detention camp. All this is done in order to keep an eye on the population's movements and to make its life difficult. Israel even imposes a total curfew whenever the settlers, who have illegally usurped the Palestinians' land, celebrate their holidays or conduct their parades. ........ "Jewish only" roads .. Wonderful roads, wide roads, well-paved roads, brightly lit at night — all that on stolen land. When a Palestinian drives on such a road, his vehicle is confiscated and he is sent on his way. ...... Israelis are not allowed to transport Palestinians in an Israeli vehicle (one registered in Israel regardless of what kind of number plate it carries) unless they have received explicit permission to do so. The permit relates to both the driver and the Palestinian passenger. Of course none of this applies to those whose labor serves the settlers. ........ Apartheid is defined therein as an international crime that among other things includes using different legal instruments to rule over different racial groups, thus depriving people of their human rights. ....... It's OK to kill civilians, women and children, old people and parents with their children, deliberately or otherwise without accepting any responsibility. It's permissible to rob people of their lands, destroy their crops and cage them up like animals in the zoo. From now on, Israelis and international humanitarian organizations' volunteers are prohibited from assisting a woman in labor by taking her to the hospital. [Israeli human rights group] Yesh Din volunteers cannot take a robbed and beaten-up Palestinian to the police station to lodge a complaint. (Police stations are located at the heart of the settlements.) Is there anyone who believes that this is not apartheid? ....... Israel is an occupying power that for 40 years has been oppressing an indigenous people ....... We apply collective punishment to millions of people and even, in revenge-driven frenzy, destroy the electricity supply for one and a half million civilians. Let them "sit in the darkness" and "starve." ....... Shulamit Aloni is the former Education Minister of Israel.
