    "The only internationally recognized borders are really those of 1948." Nope. The 1948 boundaries are just cease-fire lines, negotiated by the brilliant Dr. Ralph Bunche. The Israel-Lebanon border is the 1922 boundary between the French Mandate and the British Mandate, and PM Siniora of Lebanon--a key figure--has said he doesn't recognize it as valid (w/regard to Shaba, etc.), though the UN does. "Everybody, even Hamas, is willing to accept Israel if and when they have withdrawn into those borders." Rubbish. Hamas has said repeatedly it cannot accept Israel existing anywhere. "It justifies Israel`s aggression against an unarmed people who heroically fights against occupation of their land with their own body." "people"--Rashid Khalidi acknowledges that the masses of Arabs did not view themselves as the "Palestinian people" till the 1920s. Danny Rubenstein finds evidence it did not get really accepted among Arabs till the 1950s. Try Khalidi's _Palestinian Identity_....

Sayed Kashua's no immigrant, but what is he?

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.
