    it demonstrates that we are all incompetent.Even if by act of omission,by giving police responsibility that they are unable to handle. Why can there not be a JOINT committee of Muslim and Arab and Christian PLUS representatives who are 'neutral' to oversee EVERYTHING that happens on or near holy sites.. Maybe if Sharon had NOT gone on temple mount,the Muslims would not have been able to use it as an excuse to intifada.Riots and disorder benefit no-one. And why report in this 'cloak and dagger'style .Either there ARE facts or not.If there ARE facts and they are harmful,then they should be discussed not suppressed as they will surface at the most inappropriate time....unless of course this is all mischief making from either side to spoil chances of peace talks?

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.
