    At the heart of this discussion is the pursuit of justice with mercy. Compassionate justice in the service of conflict resolution. Every old map of the world reveals shifting borders, often reflective of man's inhumanity to man. It is absurdly hypocritical to give credence to "right to the land" claims to property abandoned for 2000 years (Israel) in light of the global shifting, or non-existence of borders throughout history. For mercy's sake, International law must be respected, or the result will be intolerable conflict with injustice. Humanity can choose between dogma religous wars without mercy, or the "golden rule", which embodies the supreme principle of mercy with justice: we are one humanity, one planet, one family of man, in which Arabs have no less right than Jews to the land of Israel. Acknowledge that, and go in peace.

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.
