    Nice French proverbs show Mr. Arens is a highly educated intellectual but it doen's mean anything if it is followed by alot of balderdash. Any attempt to "justify" or "explain" or "understand" the phenomenon of lawless hooligans in terms that do not include "Racism", "Terror" and "Jewish Superiority" are misleading at best and most likely must worse than that. The rise of Jewish terrorism, be it Tag Mechir, or any of the other more publicized and less publicized outbursts of indiscriminate violence against life and property of Arabs for the sole reason that they are Arabs, is the result of years and years of Education. Education by racist "rabbis" whipping up the religious frenzy in their "pupils", but also Education in the mainstream of Israel today wherebyJewishness and Religion are placed at such a high pedestal that the impression is raised (no doubt on purpose) that to "protect" Jewishness and Jewish Religion anything is allowed and we are always right no matter what and "they" are either with us or antisemites. With all his beautiful analysis, which serves only his own political purpose of course, Mr. Arens has missed the most crucial point of it all. We are raising a generation of "Juden Jugend" to do our dirty work. And lipservice as to how bad it all is, well, history has taught us, especially us, that this is not really helping much and maybe only makes things worse.

The dating shame: Orthodox obsession with externals

As a married woman, I get to see the other side of the dating world these days – that of the ‘matchmaker’ – and wonder what message is being sent to my generation of bright, religiously passionate women
