    that israeli forces have killed so many innocents? far, far more than hamas has killed? please don't misunderstand me; i do not condone hamas' acts, nor do i think hamas is "good" for the palestinian people; they are extremist, and exactly what the author of this article condemns. but your claim honestly lacks substance; not of itself, which i've no doubt is true, but rather in its practice, which since 2002 has accounted for the deaths of a large number of innocents, many more than actual combatants, and of those, a very large and disproportionate number were children. the author makes clear that zealots of ANY ilk are a bane upon society. his states that very concisely. neither the koran nor the new testament "sanctifies killing of innocents". so please don't suggest that israel, or judaism, is free of those whom the author so rightly suggests are the core of the conflict; especially when reality clearly indicates otherwise. it's not the tenets of judaism, christianity, or islam that lead to conflict; it's their interpretation by man...which in almost all cases is based less on scriptural intent than it is on personal motive. all three worship one GOD, and it's not He who has created the conflict; it's the zealots within each who preach their own interpretation of His word to suit their own purpose. that's what the author states; and he's absolutely RIGHT! have a nice day, rabbi.

Which foods make you fat? The answer is in your gut

Is rice more healthful than ice cream? Not necessarily. Are potatoes harmful? Not for everyone. A breakthrough study by two researchers from the Weizmann Institute shows that each of us has a different 'microbiome,' that makes us respond to foods differently. Get ready for a new medical revolution.
