    It is obvious that first impressions are always inaccurate. It is also logical to assume that there's always more than one side to a story, that the truth usually lies somewhere between the two extreme opinions, etc, etc. I therefore advise all those that come to visit Israel to come here with (1) an open mind, (2) listen and ask questions, (3) avoid "guided" or "official" tours, (4) always try to find time to explore the country on your own, (5) Talk to as many different people as possible, (6) visit as many different regions as possible, etc, etc. You'll miss a lot if you are Jewish and only mingle with local fellow Jews. The same applies to Arabs who only mingle with local Arabs. If you're neither Jewish nor Arab, YOU MUST mingle with BOTH! This is really not that hard to do. Start with Tel-Aviv and then go to Nazareth. In either place, you'll have lots of people who will be glad to talk to you! Welcome, Brokheem Habaeem, and Ahlan Wa Sahlan!

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.
