Al-Quds - May 28, 2003

PA Ministry of Education children's letter writing contest, chose as first place winner child who denied Israel rigth to exist: "You [Israel] do not deserve Lod":
     "I will yet return to Lod. I am Lara from Lod, and I am an 11-year-old girl living in the city of Ramallah. I used to accept that Ramallah is a substitute for Lod, and that the large [Mediterranean] sea has been exchanged for a small pool... you [Israel] do not deserve Lod, and after this day I will no longer accept the small pool. I will dream of the sea at Jaffa and the sunshine in Lod."
