    It would be stupid of me to pass judgment at this early hour as to the fault for the fire and the governments response, so I won't. In these pages, in the past, I have made many comments about the Israeli government's attitude and actions regarding peace and justice for Israelis and Palestinians. I stand by them. Many will suggest that the fire is a Judgment from God on Israel. Judgment for what depends on your point of view: Judgment for injustices against the occupied? Judgment for even negotiating a settlement of the Palestinian issue by facilitating the creation of state for population of the West Bank and Gaza? That of course is the problem with theology, each believes that they know the mind of God. When translated into a theocracy, say as in Iran and some would have in Israel, then the peaceful resolution of differing points of view becomes impossible. I only pray you all don't go down that path.

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.
