    Like you, I am quite appalled about what happened in Qana, and I am grieving terribly. But, unlike you I can't pin principal cupability on Israel. That belongs to Hezbollah. There is documented evidence of Hezbollah firing rockets from within Qana and other Lebanese villages and cities. The firing takes place next to private homes, and the storing of the munitions is in these homes, thus Hezbollah is using civilians as human shields by turning their towns into battle zones. Please don't rush to judgment. Hezbollah started this war, is using human shields to its p.r. advantage. This is a war crime. Bear in mind, Hezbollah is firing at civilian targets in Israel. Not at IDF bases, which are far from residential areas. They could easily target these bases, but don't. Shouldn't your moral outrage be directed at Hezbollah? If you are a pro-Israel activist, then you know the way the double standard works, so please don't be swept up into the anti-Israel bandwagon.

Orange-hued wine, made by a man who dared to defy Israel's Chief Rabbinate

Jacob Oryah, a religious vintner, challenged the notion that wine touched by a secular person cannot be kosher – and was promptly punished for it. But he persevered to make what has been described as Israel's tastiest and most thought-provoking wine.
