    Sorry, Sullivan, while I usually agree with what you say, and appreciate your courage in this most unfriendly forum, this time, I beg to differ. Allowing Egyptian artists/academics etc... entry to Israel, to build bridges, be heard and understood, to personally appeal to Israeli sensibilities (yes, I believe such a thing exists) is a duty upon all liberated arabs. This should NEVER be contingent on removal of road blocks. When the Egyptians, Saudi's, Jordanains, Lebanese, Syrian, etc.. artists/intellectuals come to Israel, share their experiences and perspectives, only then will we be closest ever to the removal of checkpoints and the shattering of the Wall. However, to all others, and with equal venom, I pose the question: Why is it impossible for Saudi, Pakistani, Sudanese, Syrian and Lebanese nationals to receive Visa's in to Israel? Two way street you see... Cant claim otherwise, there are way too many reported incidents of visa refusals...

Which foods make you fat? The answer is in your gut

Is rice more healthful than ice cream? Not necessarily. Are potatoes harmful? Not for everyone.
