Harrison Jacobs, provided by Published 8:00 am PDT, Saturday, September 22, 2018 Harrison Jacobs/Business Insider I spent a month in Israel talking to Arab-Israeli leaders during one of the tensest summers in years — and they described dire poverty, increasing tensions, and laws they see as "outright racism." Chief among the Arab leaders I met with was Ayman Odeh, leader of the Israeli parliament's third-largest bloc. He has been likened to Martin Luther King Jr. by those sympathetic to his cause and a terrorist by Israel's ultranationalist defense minister.

The boil water advisory issued by District of Columbia officials on Friday is still in place, according to DC Water’s Twitter account. “The boil water advisory remains in place at this time. We will be providing an update later this morning for all impacted customers. Thank you for your patience,” the tweet posted right before 9 a.m. on Saturday said:But the water authority did not say if the testing of random water samples from around the district yielded any evidence of pathogens getting into the water supply after a valve malfunction on Thursday night.
