    Slowly but surely the Jewish populations are moving, far away, to countries where safety comes first for their children. Sweden is the tip of the iceberg. The news media keeps well away for the problems are homegrown,lack of education and above all, the governments are becoming increasingly hostile to Israel and her policies. The fact that Muslims are not intergrating, lack the language skills or most have no job skills and seek revenge on those that have what they lack makes this a rather dangerous situation. Most European countries have large recently arrived Muslim communities that average close to 8 percent of the population. Again, the jobless rate amongst these folk is higher than any other ethnic group. The future of a Europe without a stabilizing and forward looking policy of intergration may well become the cause of xenophobia and anger as witnessed before WW 2., for Europe is currently under severe economic stress, many speak of a possible Depression, for the only countries that produce and keep their heads above water are Germany/Switzerland. One cannot therefore imagine the consquences of said scenario especially in those countries where social services will be stretched to the limit where the non immgrants will vote en masse to the right wing parties in exsaperation. The future of Europe is not that bright, economically speaking, neither when belt tightening policies will cause social unrest, for it will always be the disenfranchised that will suffer." Let them eat cake"? No, not this time. No doubt I will join my fellow pensioners on some idyllic exotic Isle where my pension will ensure a decent life. For in todays Europe, there are no guarantees for the elderly. Less so for the Jews. Good evening to all, from sunny Swiss Alps.

Road to civil marriage runs through same-sex divorce

In Israel, even Jewish couples who were married outside of the country can only be granted a divorce by the Rabbinate. Thus, same-sex couples who wish to separate find themselves in a legal lacuna.
