    The thing which bothers me about this article is that it would seem Peretz "smells a rat" in the confused and contradictory responses of the divisional commander and Chief of Staff. Anyone who has observed any game of "pin the asshole on the bureaucrat," might wonder about what is going on. If Peretz was happy with the "investigation" being conducted by the Division commander, then why would he be wishing for an independent investigation? If he was happy with the Chief of Staff's behavior, why would he not ask him to investigate? I have been watching this sort of thing for many years. I have little information as to what happened. I do know one thing. When the guys at the top of the ant-hill start fighting over who will investigate, it means a lot about what happened. btw, CYA means 'Cover Your Ass."

What division? Jews united over Iran deal

Not only are left and right in Israel united in opposition to Obama's compact of appeasement; the deal has made bedfellows of an astonishing array of Jewish organizations in America.

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.
