A summer camp in the United States is hosting 23 Arab and Jewish children from Haifa. The children arrived Saturday on the campus of Buckley Country Day School on Long Island and will stay with host families. The camp says its hope is not only to provide a safe haven for children caught in war, but to foster goodwill between Arab and Jewish children.

Some 200 skinheads who rented a boat for a party in northeastern Poland were heard yelling anti-Semitic slurs, a Polish daily reported. During Saturday’s incident in Agustow, people on the boat were heard screaming “Sieg heil” and “Jews to the gas,” according to the Gazeta Wyborcza newspaper.
