    Israel seems to only know war... e.g. it has never known peace - it leads to bunker mentality where you believe in a myriad of conspiracies and scenarios where you are being attacked from all angles (indeed constant actions to prevent your belief on an imminent attack) Supporting this are the examples of two notoriously paranoid regimes, Stasi East Germany and the KGB USSR. In the latter RYAN summed up everything wrong with Soviet external anaylsis. Like it or not, today I place Israel in the same bandwagon as Iran and North Korea. Why? because all these states are as paranoid as each other and believe they are under attack and even have messianic like representational beliefs about themselves. The day when we have peace is when Iran, Israel and North Korea learn to desist and show restraint from conspiratorial worldviews, e.g. global anti-semitic plots or everyone trying to undermine the Islamic Revolution or the Juche Principle - its really one and the same. To the citizens of North Korea, Iran and Israel I hope for a time your respective societies have one day not filled with the constant threats of war and external forces attacking your society. Peace - Shalom

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.
