    Shimon says:Hamas openly states on a regular basis that they dont want peace wiht israel but and will not stop killing israelis until they have form the dead sea to the mediteranina. HOW ARE THESE PEOPLE SERIOPUSLY CAPABLE OF A PEACE THEY OPNELY SAY THEY WILL NEVER WANT?!?!?! Do you ever read the Jewish extremes viewpoints? Do ALL religious Jews believe the same that way? That for a biblical/divine vision they will NEVER give up any part of Eretz Israel? You know with the status quo there is no need to kill all the Arabs, just shoot down any idea that reeks of compromise and its done...You know even Sharon now is an anti semite and anyone else that wants a reasonable peace...even the WORD peace has been hijacked by these cultists and twisted as appeasement They are a mirror of Hamas. Hamas gives charity to their people and so do the extreme Jews....but there is a vision that is total in both cases.This is at the centre of THE problem. And you know,they BOTH would admit it. But I believe they,on both sides are not ALL fundamentalists.I just think that the cultures they both live in,the culture that gives them their esteem,are not easy to break away from. Many Germans had the same problem and history has taught us they they chose not to confront that which is basically wrong. I hope these people will see the light.

Road to civil marriage runs through same-sex divorce

In Israel, even Jewish couples who were married outside of the country can only be granted a divorce by the Rabbinate. Thus, same-sex couples who wish to separate find themselves in a legal lacuna.
