    I do not agree with what these settlers have done. That being said, Stephen Murray launches into yet another one of his diatribes blaming everything on Israel. Tell us, have the Palestinians EVER DONE ANYTHING wrong? As I've told you many times, according to the U.N. and international law, the territories are disputed and must be settled in negotiations between the parties. This is the stance of most countries (non-Muslim, of course). Bush wrote a public letter to Sharon in which he acknowledged that Israel will retain the large settlement blocks. The PA also acknowledged this in Camp David and Taba negotiations, so stop being more Catholic than the Pope. As far as I can tell, you aren't Jewish and you aren't Muslim and you've never set foot here. What motivates you to demonize Israel every day while never saying a word about vicious Palestinian terrorists? Are you an anti-Semite? Yesterday an Israeli was killed by rocket fire and the PA declared a state of emergency against Hamas, and you are worked up about some numbers on settlers arms? What is wrong with you, Mr. Murray?

What division? Jews united over Iran deal

Not only are left and right in Israel united in opposition to Obama's compact of appeasement; the deal has made bedfellows of an astonishing array of Jewish organizations in America.

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.
