    ...then there is no "center" to hold. There is nobody capable of making peace, with the Arabs or anybody else. There is, however, this little country that insists on making trouble for its patron, without whose funding and support both material and political, the little country simply would not exist. Citizens and would-be citizens of the little country like to pretend this isn't so, but if wishes were real, there would be peace in the Middle East. The fact that there isn't is attributable, in large part, to said small country. Just as it takes two sides to fight, it takes two sides to make peace. Saying "We tried and it didn't work" is almost as productive but not nearly as respectable as shouting one's wishes. Therefore, if there is to be peace in the Middle East, the UN, US and other interested large powers must impose that peace, by force if necessary. Rule One in the playbook MUST be to specifically ignore the posturing to date. Is that what Israel wants? It's about to get it.

The dating shame: Orthodox obsession with externals

As a married woman, I get to see the other side of the dating world these days – that of the ‘matchmaker’ – and wonder what message is being sent to my generation of bright, religiously passionate women
