    I find it rather peculiar that some Israeli newspapers - I won't mention names, free advertising and all that - are accusing certain European countries of religious fundamentalism and extremism, yet here we see both of these occur in the heart of Israel. I just don't understand how can a small fringe group rule the lives of the entire nation of Israel. Is there no secular movement strong enough to confront this blatant form of segregation and human rights violation? Israel really needs a constitution stipulating that it is a secular, civic country. It seems to be the only way to keep religion private. As for that newspaper, all I can say is that no European country would ever allow this kind of behaviour by any group of people.

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 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.
