    When did capability become equivalent to initiation of a war? There seems to be an irrational belief that if Iran has nuclear weapons they will automatically launch them. Really? Based on what evidence-- rhetoric? What could Iran possible accomplish that would be worth the destruction it would bring to itself should it initiate a nuclear confrontation? This irrational logic remains a problematic issue that continues to encourage regional conflict. The tendency to oversimplify issues hinders Israeli abilities to understand and solve them. The embrace of fear over logic further clouds rational thought. The power to impose one's will on others is not without consequences. Reactions of those who have free will shows time and again imposing your will on others often has negative consequences that cannot be predicted. The mistake made time and again is that preemptive war or war in general solves something. No, war is a reflection of human problems, not a solution to them. All actions that encourage fear, hate, anger, distrust and intolerance hinder peace and encourage war and conflict. Bombing Iran is an act of war. It would likely to initiate a full blown conflict that could not be controlled/limited did not have to take place.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
