    Human beings in their God-given nature are creative. More fundamentally nature in its very essential composition is creative---energy, atoms, etc. all represent creative action as it is externalized in the universe we witness. Evolution is creativity in a process of becoming. There are no people whose creativity is greater than others. There are differences in the forms of creativity, its essence is universally distributed. So there is nothing surprising in the creativity of the Palestinian people. What is surprising is the tenacity they have demonstrated to their culture and values which the State of Israel has so brutally attacked. In time the Palestinians will outshine the achievements of Israel. They have been tested by the wrongs inflicted upon them and they have endured and will continue to endure. Israel's greatest achievement is its military power which it uses under the guise of security to cripple the creative drive of the Palestinian nation. In its repressive, dehumanizing efforts Israel does not have a moral leg to stan on.

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
