    Belfast Telegraph ^ | 15 March 2014
    Saudi Arabia’s interior ministry has banned 50 names they argue contradict the culture or religion of the Kingdom, according to reports by local media. Parents in the Kingdom will reportedly no longer be able to call their children by names such as Linda, Alice, Elaine or Binyamin (Arabic for Benjamin) after the civil affairs department at the ministry issued a list of the prohibited names. Binyamin is believed in Islam to be the son of Prophet Jacob, but is also the name of the current Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. …

    Arabs ambushed and attacked a convoy of cars driven by Jews on the road leading to the demolished outpost of Yad Yair. No one was reported hurt.

Usually, the pilgrimage is carried out without army approval. Since the road to Yad Yair is blocked by a military checkpoint, the residents usually drive through a roundabout way that passes through three Arab villages. This year, the IDF brigade commander in charge of the region asked...

    Residents of the Binyamin region took an organized hike Friday in an area the IDF had declared a "closed military zone." The residents believe the military is trying to gradually limit Jewish freedom of movement in Judea and Samaria, and compare the IDF's policy to the British colonial "White Papers." The army declared the area surrounding the Alei Ayin outpost a closed military zone, after the outpost was forcefully torn down two months ago. Despite the ban – or because of it – the grassroots Binyamin Residents' Council organized Friday's hike through the area and promises to maintain presence there....
