    Was it not Israel that pre-emptively started the six day war with her enemies by attacking and then subsequently occupying Gaza and the Sinai Peninsula. Remember? Operartion "Moked"? Any seasoned military analyst at the time knew that Israel had the fire power to knock out all of her enemies, as she had a massive military advantage, even against the combined militaries of Egypt, Jordan and Syria. This was a no-brainer for any military strategist of the time. So why did Israel attack Egypt commencing the six day war if she had a massive military edge? Perhaps, if we look at the continued conquest and colonial settlement of the West Bank, we may be able to deduce that Israel's "defensive" policies are indeed expansionist in nature. Perhaps Israel started the six day war knowing she would be able to conquer more land. Based on clear policies and facts on the ground in what is supposed to be a future Palestinian State, I don't think such a conclusion is much of a stretch.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
