    It's obvious that most posters didn't read the Goldstone's comments. He didn't say innocents weren't killed. That Israeli tactics were wholly appropriate or any such thing. But that's beside the point. Why are you so intent on focusing on a 2 year old event when the problems you have are in the here and now. You are losing your ability to effect the outlines of a new Palestinian state. One will be recognized by the UN. You won't like it, but it will place the occupation in an untenable position. It will be an ongoing act of war against a largely defenseless state. You've had "quiet" in the territories for most of the last 5 years. The Hamas rockets never hit anything and its unlikely they are aimed directly at civilians, because they can't be aimed. The PM and FM's efforts to start a new war in Gaza won't delay the inevitable. You should focus on serious negotiations with the PA or your credibility and legitimacy will diminished by your own actions or lack there of.

Not a migrant, not an immigrant – there has to be a third option, but he doesn't know how to say it in English, Arabic or Hebrew.

How the bagel went from shtetls to haute cuisine

A visit to the world's bagel capital is a chance to marvel at how this unassuming Jewish-Ashkenazi food has come from its 17th-century beginnings.
