    Israel is in the process of defining it's DEFENSIBLE borders. In the meantime, in spite of the charge that the occupation continues; there is no Israeli military govt. in Gaza. Therefore, there is no longer an occupation of Gaza according to The 1949 Article of The Geneva Convention pertaining to Occupied Lands, whether Mr. Eldar thinks so or not. In any case, there continues to be no legal or moral justification for terrorists to kill innocent Israelis. This is a unilateral move by ISRAEL, to counter the Oslo War, it is no gift. Oslo is dead. Need I repeat it, OSLO IS DEAD. The Sharon Gambit was carefully designed to disarm certain other dangerous plans from those who gave us the gift of oslo, the trojan donkey. If Oslo had worked, it would be different today. That offer is gone. There is now an understanding on Israel's need for defensible borders and the minimum territory necessary for it to protect itself from the sworn enemy, who has never wavered in there goal to destroy all of Israel. I have seen no eveidence to the contrary. You buttered your bread, now eat it!

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.
