    No matter what other countries preach for in the UN, we see today that the hard reality is completely different with the winner usually being the one with most military strength. Boycotts, sanctions, and threats do not resolve the problems as we see with Iran and Syria. The moment a country has enough military strength, it can do as it sees fit without fear in its own region. For that simple reason, Palestinians are looking for a list cause within the UN. They may also try to raise a 3rd intifada, but the Israeli military today is so powerful, that an intifada could easily be silenced. Palestinians' only hope is negotiations, and willfulness to accept the fact that a lot of the land which they lost in history can no longer be recovered. This includes most of the settlements as well as East Jerusalem. For that, Palestinians will also need a partner on the Israeli side who can impose strict regulations on the settlements so as to not infringe on Palestinian land. Israel must therefore work to find a government which is willing to compromise and go against the radicals in the country.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
