Several Palestinian delegates were invited to speak before the Subcommittee about the future of the Jewish state. They recommended the following actions:
- Get the occupiers off the disputed territory.
- Give their land to us.
- Declare the Resolution of 1971 null and void.
Jewish delegates were excluded from the hearing. Rebuttals were not allowed and policies that benefit the Palestinians were not discussed.
Where’s the thriving ecological balance and multiple-use relationship?

A wild mare suffered fatal injuries yesterday after hitting a guy wire from a power pole, according to a report by The Virginian-Pilot. Her foal, born in March, can survive on solid food and is staying with the family band.
The incident comes about a week after a Corolla stallion was hit by a vehicle and underscores the importance of keeping the mares up to date on their contraceptives.
This area is shown as a dry lake on maps but has held water for over two years (it’s the opening scene in this video). Finally saw some Virginia Range mustangs on 07/12/19, when this photo was taken. They appear as little dots near the center of the image.
