    any rabbinical body should be appointed and financed by the people who wish to use its services. the state should never finance and appoint religious functionaries. if the orthodox want to have a chief rabbi, they should appoint or elect him and pay his a salary. a religious wedding or divorce should be a choice people make, while the standard should be civil marriage and divorce. people who don't want to travel or shop on saturdays and holidays should be free to make that choice, it's their business, but public transportation on any day should be the norm as well as commerce, shops and restaurants should be open if their owners choose to do so. religious people should be allowed to run for any public office, but never as part of religious parties, because organized religion should never be allowed to mix with politics.the place of religion is the home, the temple or a private religious school if one chooses to attend it, never in politics. any kind of religious practice or dogma should be a free choice a person makes, it should never be forced upon people and it should never be allowed to get anywhee near politics. it's the only to fix the seperation and some day even war between rligious and secular jews in israel.

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.
