    Are you calling the new minister a thief? Do you actually know him or know anything about him ? He is a good man, smart. And we behind the Bethlehem 2000 project which renovated Bethlehem City before the year 2000. I think he is the best man for this position. Also it is good that that Palestinian Authority gave such a sensetive job to a Christian man who are minority now in Palestine.

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.
