    "A foreigner would never understand. The Israeli public's interest in the fate of the abducted Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit is an unparalleled phenomenon in Western democracies." - Amos Harel Twaddle. Has everyone forgotten America's Iranian Hostage Crisis' or it's 'Beirut Hostages'? Both were good for the American right, and the continued perdition of Gilad Shalit is good for the Israeli right. Israel was once a nation which was 'all for one and one for all.' Long ago, most of a life-time, it became a nation of 'screw you jack, I've got mine.' You can't have it both ways. The first is communism, the second capitalism. How are Israel's kibbutz doing. . . ? Got it?

Palestinian workers stand under a shelter

You love Israel and hate occupation. What do you do?

There's a certain freedom in a time of extremism and obsession and chaos. Freedom to chart a new course. Freedom to love Israel. Freedom to help undo what it's done in your name.

How Isaiah gave Hebrew its word for vagina

If St Jerome and other experts are right, Israelis may have thought that 'pot' meant vulva, but actually they were saying cup. Or forehead. Or maybe something else.
