    Suppose the Arab League, the EU and the Iranian Axis all agree that Israel is "illegitimate". I'd be worried if Israel were considered legitimate by the grotesque "standards" held by those non-entities. If the EU turns on Israel, it will be especially auspicious for Israel. Israel may finally be able to free itself from its obsessively sick quest to be loved by Europe. In any event the EU will have lost any chance to exercise influence on Israel. Israel will then be free to set policy that is best for Israel without external influence. Because the EU or UN has no capacity whatsoever, when push comes to shove, to force Israel to do anything. The EU's treachery against Israel may be the perfect antidote to the Oslo debacle, to free Israel to achieve its destiny. Even Balaam 3500 years ago realized this truth. I understand the Left's fabricated "intellectuality" has severely weakened their basic logical reasoning facilities. But surely some remedy must be available to help even Leftists grasp and apply basic principles of logical reasoning.

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
