how not to solve the Israeli-Palestinian crisis
So apparently Palestinian Fulbright scholars can't come to the US to begin their scholarships because of the Israeli blockade. This is just mind-boggling. These are the sorts of people who will be needed to help solve this crisis 20 years down the line, the moderates who want better relations with the US, and they're being punished because of Hamas's intransigence. Hopefully now that the media are reporting on this, it will get fixed. I expect and hope that it will.
