"Since Cast Lead, I think that the perception of Palestine and how Palestine is portrayed in the American press is improving drastically, and I think that’s wonderful. I think that it is also important to say that while the way we talk about Palestine is changing here, things on the ground are not changing there. And it doesn’t necessarily mean that because more people are talking about Palestinians as humans - what a concept - that there are less home demolitions and killings."

"I was released today because I am a low priority and not considered a threat. I would argue that the 11 million undocumented immigrants in this country are not a threat either."

Jose Antonio Vargas, who has chronicled in minute detail the twists and turns of his life as a Filipino living illegally for years in the United States, was detained by the Border Patrol for most of the day on Tuesday and then released with a notice to appear before an immigration judge.
