    Not one comment in English yet? (Over a 100 in Hebrew.) True, nobody is perfect, and that includes the President of BGU and the journalist. But the journalist did a good job, on the whole giving a correct (sometimes lengthy) impression of reality. The President is doing a very good job, not pleasing everyone with her actions (often lack thereof), but fortunately in Israel (so far) no president is a dictator and every group of two persons can have three different opinions. Most importantly BGU plays a very important role in promoting on the ground some peaceful coexistence in a region where extremisms of all kinds flourish and might (God forbids, whatever your God is, even if you don't have any) bring Armaggedon to our civilisation, and pair annihilation of both Israelis and Palestinians. Shouting "Gott mit uns" in whatever is your language brought war and destruction in the region in the antiquity, later in Europe and eventually the world, and the end might come only with the end of combattants. Every small step to avoid that is important. That is a common point to both recent Presidents of BGU who, each in his own style, with pluses and minuses, have done and are doing a very good job at the base. Let all the flowers grow.

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.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
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.
