    BJ: "Egypt started `56 war when she blocked Suez. A direct act of war on her part. Refusing Israel the right of innocent passage" No. It is a violation of the Treaty of Constantinople, BEN. It provided Israel with a casus belli for ISRAEL to go to war. Your hypcrisy is showing, thanks to your book-ended posts #150-151 #150 In 1973 Israel gave Egypt a casus belli to violate a ceasefire, therefore it was EGYPT that started that war. #151: In 1956 Egypt gave Israel a casus belli to violate an armistace, therefore it was...EGYPT(!!!) that started that war. Egypt gets damned either way. How very inconsistent. But how very convenient for you, hey? My position IS consistent: the party that provided the other side with a casus belli is the party that Got What It Deserved, but it is not the party that Started That War. It is the party that shouted "Casus belli!!" and went BAMB!!!! that is the party that Started That War. In 1956 that was Israel. In 1973 Egypt/Syria.

What division? Jews united over Iran deal

Not only are left and right in Israel united in opposition to Obama's compact of appeasement; the deal has made bedfellows of an astonishing array of Jewish organizations in America.

Palestinian workers stand under a shelter

You love Israel and hate occupation. What do you do?

There's a certain freedom in a time of extremism and obsession and chaos. Freedom to chart a new course. Freedom to love Israel. Freedom to help undo what it's done in your name.

How Isaiah gave Hebrew its word for vagina

If St Jerome and other experts are right, Israelis may have thought that 'pot' meant vulva, but actually they were saying cup. Or forehead. Or maybe something else.
