    UN chief Ban Ki Moon is in the region. Clearly, these two sides hate one another. The UN created this problem and Ban should take responsibility for his organization's part in it. The UN should fix it even if it has to impose a solution upon the parties. This violence will keep recurring until the UN, which created this situation, addresses the problem which it created. We will recall that the UN created Israel in 1948 largely to make recompense for what the Germans did. In doing so a grave injustice, which continues to fester after 64 years, was done to Palestinians. You know what you get when you take someone's property for no money? 64 years of war. The UN needs to invoke something like the Doctrine of Eminent Domain and make this as right as possible by paying Just Compensation in exchange for a Release of Claims to all people who lost property, Jews included, when the UN created Israel, and allow Palestinians to establish a state in what's left of their land, if that's what they want. Israel and Israelis are not going to disappear and neither will the displaced Arabs. Probably they should start thinking in terms of a 3-state solution, Israel, Palestine, and Gaza. Uniting Palestine and Gaza into a single country seems absurd. Who ever heard of a viable bifurcated country?

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.'
