    "Give me one example of a group of American Citizens being Forcefully being repatraited (other than the Indians) forcefully to another country or state. " - G1, once again proving why he will never be G-2 I notice that you use the term 'repatriated' which implies returning them to their nation. We repatriated many Americans when we pulled out of the Philippines, and Canal Zones, does that qualify? During World War II the US government forcibly relocated hundreds of thousands of Japanese Americans to concentration camps in a number of states. See: http://www.cr.nps.gov/history/online_books/anthropology74/cet.htm Hundreds of thousands, even millions of Americans, including whole towns and cities, have been moved for various government projects. Many have included large numbers of people who did not wish to vacate their homes for the creation of the cities and factories of the Manhattan Project, military bases, bombing ranges, interstate highways, hydroelectric dams, national parks and other reasons which now - by decision of the Supreme Court - include real estate developments. "What Manure you are spouting." - G1 You don't have imminent domain in Canada? We sure have it here.

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.
