From what he says, it appears that it was mainly the Jewish inhabitants of the city who defended the fortress of Haifa. In his rather strange Latin style, he mentions that there was a Jewish population in Haifa, and that they fought bravely within the walls of the city. He explains that the Jews there were protected people of the Muslims the Fatimids. They fought side by side with units of the Fatimid army, striking back at Tancred's army from above the walls of the citadel Judaei civis comixtis Sarracenorum turmis until the Crusaders overcame them and they were forced to abandon the walls.

Another important objective of the Israeli war plan was the elimination of the terrorist bases in the Gaza Strip, from which daily fedayeen incursions into Israel made life unbearable for its southern population. And last but not least, the concentration of the Egyptian forces in the Sinai Peninsula, armed with the newly acquired weapons from the Soviet bloc, prepared for an attack on Israel.

The escalation continued with the Egyptian blockade of the Straits of Tiran, and Nasser's nationalization of the Suez Canal in July On October 14, Nasser made clear his intent:"I am not solely fighting against Israel itself. My task is to deliver the Arab world from destruction through Israel's intrigue, which has its roots abroad.

The continued blockade of the Suez Canal and Gulf of Aqaba to Israeli shipping, combined with the increased fedayeen attacks and the bellicosity of recent Arab statements, prompted Israel, with the backing of Britain and France, to attack Egypt on October 29, Gamal Abdel Nasser, who declared in one speech that "Egypt has decided to dispatch her heroes, the disciples of Pharaoh and the sons of Islam and they will cleanse the land of Palestine There will be no peace on Israel's border because we demand vengeance, and vengeance is Israel's death.
The level of violence against Israelis, soldiers and civilians alike, seemed to be rising inexorably. In the short-term, however, he employed a new tactic to prosecute Egypt's war with Israel. He announced it on August 31, Egypt has decided to dispatch her heroes, the disciples of Pharaoh and the sons of Islam and they will cleanse the land of Palestine These "heroes" were Arab terrorists, or fedayeen, trained and equipped by Egyptian Intelligence to engage in hostile action on the border and infiltrate Israel to commit acts of sabotage and murder.

In spite of this, official language use has maintained a de facto role for English, after Hebrew but before Arabic.
Kluwer Academic Publishers. English is not considered official but it plays a dominant role in the educational and public life of Israeli society.
It is the language most widely used in commerce, business, formal papers, academia, and public interactions, public signs, road directions, names of buildings, etc. English behaves 'as if' it were the second and official language in Israel. In terms of English, there is no connection between the declared policies and statements and de facto practices.
While English is not declared anywhere as an official language, the reality is that it has a very high and unique status in Israel.

I realised immediately he was dying. He was not moving at all.
He was taken to the operating theatre and they decided he had to be transferred to Israel because his situation was so critical. Abla says the doctors told her that both bullets exploded inside her son, causing considerable damage to his brain and body. It is one of the issues she returns to in anger and suspicion. Part of his brain was on his clothes," she says. Couldn't they just have shot him in the leg? Ahmed was moved to an Israeli hospital in Haifa, but by then his mother had given up hope.
He tried to do more tests. They kept his heart beating but I knew he was not alive," she says. When Ahmed died two days later, his father had already decided what to do. Ismail's brother, Shokat, died in at the age of 22 of kidney failure. My brother had kidney failure and since we didn't have the proper treatment for him, his situation deteriorated and it affected the second kidney and that lasted for 15 years," he says.
I lived the whole ordeal and I wanted to stop others suffering like that. I told the doctors I wanted to donate Ahmed but first I had to consult from a religious point of view, and my family and my society. Ismail first asked his wife. Her wait in the hospital left her in no doubt. I have seen children in deep need of organs, in deep pain. It doesn't matter who they are. We didn't specify that his organs would go to Arabs, Christians or Jews. I didn't want my son to suffer, I didn't want other children to suffer regardless of who they are," she says.
Of course my son was martyred and they were the criminals and they took his life away but we are the ones who could give life back to them. And maybe my son is still alive in someone else. We are the ones who want peace and love and they are the ones who break their promises and who don't want peace. Ismail sought an assurance from the mufti of Jenin that there was no religious objection.
Transplants are a divisive issue within Muslim communities but the mufti said he saw no obstacle to donating Ahmed's organs or to them going to Israelis and Jews. Then came what Ismail calls "society".
In Jenin, that is not so much the neighbours as those who control the streets, principally the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades and Zubeidi, who has dispatched his share of suicide bombers into Israel. Ahmed's heart was transplanted into a year-old Israeli Arab girl, his lungs into a Jewish teenager suffering from cystic fibrosis and his liver was divided between a seven-month-old Jewish girl and a year-old mother of two suffering from chronic hepatitis.
The kidneys were divided between a three-year-old Jewish girl and a five-year-old Bedouin Arab. She is named after a brother she never knew who died of the same genetic heart condition before she was born. Samaah waited five years for a donor. Before the operation, she was so weak that she stopped going to school because she was unable to walk more than a few yards at a time.
Her father, Riad, called the donation "a gesture of love". Her mother, Yusra, was overwhelmed as she waited at her daughter's bedside. But I am also happy that my daughter has the chance to live. I am very grateful that in their pain they thought of our pain. The other families have chosen not to speak in public as yet.
