    While I was not there to witness the event, the message which unites the people of Israel, is sound and clear. The end of plutocracy, corruption, incompetence, the clear vision that most politicians are to serve themselves, and that all this has to be changed from its very roots. If the people don't insist on this lines and a participative democracy is the newborn child of this process, instead of one which resigns to power after coming to the polls, then we are lost in the hands of those, whatever their ideology or political affiliation is, are screwed to power for the sake of themselves. Please Israel, wake up, the times for Livni, Olmert, and the like, for a funtolive country, and a country for the friends of my friends, then this is the road to self-defeat. Pray Ha Shem that this will change for better.

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.
