    If you think the Govt of Israel has highest security clearance from the US, you are wrong. US does not give Govts security clearances. Israel is running espionage operations in the US. FBI spokesman, and Justice Dept recently announced Israel runs 2nd most aggressive intelligence operations in the US. According to Dept of Defence docs, the Israeli attack on USS Liberty was deliberate. Ship designation letters were painted 10 ft tall on each side of the bow. The ship was flying the oversized US holiday flag. The Israelis shot it to pieces. The Israelis jammed ship?s communications. Israeli recon plane flew 90 ft above the mast twice. Airmen and US crew waved at each other. Two waves of fighters arrived and strafed and rocketed the ship. The 3 torpedo boats arrived and circled firing 40mm shells at the bridge and waterline. Firing 5 torpedos, one killed 24 of the 39 killed. To abandon ship, life rafts were put over the side. The boats closed and machine gunned them sinking them all.

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.
