    "zeev, you are twisting facts." (A. Zekaria) Too bad you forgot to tell me which ones. "It is a fact that the Palestinians have no HISTORIC right to claim it a Palestinians State." (A. Zekaria) Right, as you so often are. Neither had the British colonists of North America any HISTORIC right to claim a state of their own. Learning a little bit of the history of your country wouldn't hurt you. By the way, it is also a fact that in the eyes of the International Law, there are NO historic national rights. "the land was Jewish" (A. Zekaria) Of course, it was. And still is. Trouble is, you see, the West Bank, Gaza and the Golan, never were Israeli. You may want them to be. Then pray for their annexation. And for all their population to be declared Israeli citizens. Or do come up with a feasible plan to expel them all, their wifes, children, old parents, sheep and camels. Well ... the sheep may stay. (The crossing of the river, what a feast for the CNN and BBC cameramen !) I said, "Only a brain damaged Israeli PM would think of going to the General Assembly and try there to convince the Nations that the Security Council's Resolutions should be based from now on the Jewish law." You said, "A stupid statement Zeev & totally unwarned !" Why? Do you really think this is what Netanyahu should do? I wouldn't be surprised.

Road to civil marriage runs through same-sex divorce

In Israel, even Jewish couples who were married outside of the country can only be granted a divorce by the Rabbinate. Thus, same-sex couples who wish to separate find themselves in a legal lacuna.
