    I don't mean to be condescending, but are any of you aware that the overwhelming majority of these authoritarian and discriminatory Arab regimes are not only American satellites, but indearingly referred to by the Zionist leadership as "moderate states." Obviously Israelis feel threatened by Palestinians, without exterminating them entirely, Zionism can never fully realize itself as the return of "landless people to people-less land." But few people see the ideological threat Palestinians pose to surrounding Arab regimes. Palestinian republicanism, parliamentary ethics, and pluralism--mainly envisioned by exiled academics such as Habash and Said, are a greater danger to the Jordanian and Saudi monarchies than Israel ever was. Perhaps, this is why Lebanese and Jordanian policy has been so keen on isolating and destroying refugee communities. Israeli idealism, if it indeed exists, has more in common with its arch-nemesis than its regional allies' do.

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.
