    The right wing is getting hysterical over the election of Peretz. The fact that they have hoodwinked so many of their core supporters for so long and that Peretz clearly exposes their hypocrisy, means that they are already pulling out the big guns and firing. To hear it so far from them, if elected, Peretz will be the end of civilization as we know it. He is a commie thug who is siding with Al Quida. Well, I quess that when you have been stealing from the poor for so long to give to the rich and the settlers, it is kind of an existential threat in a way. The real question for Peretz is whether he can be a wise enough leader to remain principled, and yet unite his natural constituency into a focused and potentially powerful political force. It is possible, but still far from a given. Could be, though, that people have just been fooled one too many mornings and can finally fend off the media manipulation that has come to characterize so much of what passes for Democracy these days.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
