    Hey Rachel I enjoyed your little travelogue on Israel. I remember back in 1974 seeing my first paper collecting bins, and a campaign for turning off lights when not making use of the room. Sadly much of this is but puddy. The problem is the large unions which run the electric corp. which fear any change to the status quo. As for collecting paper and platic bottles, it is a fraud. it makes the average soul feel good about themselves, as if it is saving the planet, but this is not a major cause of sea pollution. Toronto had the blue box for seperating garbage, yet still had a coal burning power plant on the Lakeshore. Israel needs cleaning up, seperating garbage is nice and is good, but it is a pin prick where surgery is needed. We need to allow folks to produce their own electricity, using solar panels instead of producing our electricity through the burning of coal. I would also like to see the Gazans stop burning tires as a means of protest.

Ashkenazi and Barak.

Why Barak regrets speaking out on Iran

There was no security breach in what the former defense minister said about how an attack was thwarted; what has suffered is mainly Israel’s image as a well-run, normal country whose leaders are capable of keeping a secret.

Not a migrant, not an immigrant – there has to be a third option, but he doesn't know how to say it in English, Arabic or Hebrew.

How the bagel went from shtetls to haute cuisine

A visit to the world's bagel capital is a chance to marvel at how this unassuming Jewish-Ashkenazi food has come from its 17th-century beginnings.
