    When the UN passed the resolution on establishing the special criminal court for the Hariri assassination, it was believed that Syria was responsible. Without this belief, who would have established an international court for the killing of a Former PM, especially in a land where politicians are assassinated right and left?? Unfortunately, it appears now to have been an internal Lebanese job and the result of the investigation may spark a civil war in Lebanon, which nobody needs. My advice to the UN: Just abolish the special Court, announce the result of the investigation, and cross your fingers. As long as Hizballah can maintain deniability, things will not boil over. May Hariri rest in peace, and may Allah take care of the murderers as He has been doing in Lebanon for a long time now. Amen.

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.
