    You worte, quoting some non-Jews, "if Jews say things like this, how can I not support the Palestinians. If Jews understand why the Palestinians are using terrorism who am I to criticize it?" If what Jews and non-Jews say is "true" and represents reality, then why shouldn't Jews say it? Should Jews conceal truth if and when it hurts? Should Jews lie and act like unethical hypocrites to prove their loyalty to Israel? Do you want Jews to live in a state of denial? Do you want Jews to act like the bulk of Germans and Europeans who didn't speak up against the Nazi beast? If Jews like you support these nefarious practices, which are perpetrated in their name and in the name of their religion, then they become a bunch of hypocrites and criminals. Yes, I understand your argument..it is based on expediency, dishonesty, racism and tribal loyalty. And you want other Jews to follow....and never think of their conscience....Just like Hitler expected Germans to behave. shame.

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
