    I certainly believe that the Bible is truth and do not doubt the existence of the wall or the Biblical account of David and Solomon. However, I also know that the Israelis continue to seek ways to justify the confiscation of land, especially in East Jerusalem. The fact that this was found around the village of Silwan will be another excuse the Israelis will use to justify annexing the land and keeping the Palestinians from building or making any claim to East Jerusalem. As if the Israelis have ever needed an excuse to impose suffering and delegitimization of the Palestinian people.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
