    Hallal-catered hotels and spas, burkas and bazookas in every shuq, an Iranian embassy close to Al-Qaida's liason office, and a suite for Neturei Karta's chief rabbi ovelooking the Mediterranean. Mujaheed Qassam Airlines with daily flights to Khartum, Tehran and Damascus. Shuttle service to Beirut pending the fall of Siniora's government. Overcrowding much lower as most Palestinian familis left through holes in Rafah's walls, or in makeshift rafts, just like Cuban balseros (Israeli Navy will turn a blind eye). Ayatollah Khamenei will visit the crowds in a Mullah-mobile, much like the Pope, but in black; Farsi will be an official language alongside Arabic, and seventeen global TV channels will transmit pure Islamic News and children's programs. Alan Johnston -converted to the True Faith after seeing The Light- will lead the BBC there, which will still be the only Dhimmi TV welcomed there. Israel will survive it, just as the Jewish people have for three and a half thousand years.

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.
