    Another idiotic proposal by Beilin. The mandatory military service law must never be overturned, but the Tal Law should be revised. ALL Israeli citizens must do some form of national service and for the same length of time as all other citizens. If someone is not suited to the military, then he or she must do other national service. It must make no distinctions if the citizen is orthodox, haredi or Arab or a member of any other sect. It is unconscionable that the haredi section does not pull its weight in the most basic way that all the others do - putting their very lives on the line for Am Yisrael. This issue has divided Israeli society for far too long.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
