    Why 'secular' people always tout "Rights" when it comes to doing whatever their emotional whims say, tossing aside ancient traditions, sacred concepts or issues that many hold dear to decry their own 'rights'??? "Rights" are bestowed human to human and out of respect: no human being is born with 'rights'...it is a human concept. Do people have the right to violate the feelings of masses of other people just out of selfishness? What if the secular swells decide its 'their right' to murder, steal, take peoples homes away because they're well off??? Is that gonna be okay? Its the things the secular call 'small, absurd' practices that are the very foundation for more serious issues: violate the small things in people's lives and it paves the way to the big things. Yeah, yeah, I know:"pot is a gateway drug?" Answer: yeah, it is: most people who smoke pot do other drugs, do the math: its all on paper. "Secular" philosophies have led to Nazis, communism, etc; 127 million murders.

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.
