    israel's right to exist does not depend on the so-called international community any more than the right of france or the uk to exist does. nor does the so-called international community have the legal power to determine borders between israel and her neighbours. such determination must be the result of negotiations between israel and her neighbours. ill-conceived interventions by the so-called international community have for the most part led to disasterous results. furthermore, giving up territory without a real peace treaty, subject to referenda by the peoples involved, will not bring peace. the egyptian peace treaty is being questioned by various segments of egyptians, including marxists and the muslim brotherhood. had israel listened to the left and given up the golan, we would be in a situation today where syria's leadership is about to fall and the country might enter a long civil war. the "arab awakening" has thus far not gone in the direction of progress but of confusion in which one autocratic regime will replace another autocratic regime. the so-called international community would be well advised to tell the palestinians that if they want a state, they must make peace with israel.

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.'
