    I live in Israel with my wife and family, pay taxes, vote and serve in the army. Even tiny decisions in Israel affect my life, not to mention huge security decisions. I know why I care. These aren't just words, they are my life. I don't want any MORE of my friends or family killed in Palestinian suicide bombs. You, meanwhile, don't live here. What difference does it make to you if Israel would ever implement your suicidal policies? You aren't here to live with the consequences. In your own analogy, you left the tribe. That's fine, now stop bothering those of us who stay in the tribe, love the tribe, and care about the future of the tribe. Ok, "achi?" If you care so much about the poor Palestinians, maybe you should go live with them and see how great their society is from the inside, like Amira Hass. At least she has the courage of her convictions, unlike you, sitting in your ivory tower in NYC. Shabbat Shalom, brother.

Hundreds killed in Aleppo foretell a major political achievement for Assad

The fighting highlights how Russia is winning at the West's expense, and underscores the paradox in which the West (together with Russia) focuses on ISIS while Assad regime continues to kill Syrian civilians in much greater numbers.

Newly unearthed version of Elie Wiesel's seminal work is a scathing indictment of God

In Wiesel’s uncensored Hebrew 'Night' manuscript, unveiled here for the first time, the author expresses desire to take revenge on the Hungarians, lashes out at fellow Jews and describes sexual scenes from the train to Auschwitz.
