    "Israel could [...] claim that East Jerusalem is a Jewish city and that Arabs have no right to settle there." (Tim R) Exactly what Israel DOES claim, and, as from June '67, has always claimed. Read Res. 478, of August 1980, which declared (the United States abstaining) that Israel's 1980 Jerusalem Law is null and void while affirming it was a violation of international law. Not one word even suggesting/implying that East Jerusalem is now "an Arab city". Your accusation is baseless. Honesty In Debating Is Debating My Central argument, which is - remember? : "Who was majority in any place for any time before any day - is inded totally irrelevant, perhaps not in your eyes, but most certainly in the eyes of International Law, as Serbia had to learn at great expense in Kosovo." (#108) Debating side issues, like what makes it irrelevant, International Law or Politics, is utterly pointless and a waste of time (2nd try). Irrelevant it was in the Serbian case, it is now in Israel's case too, without distinction of religion. Did I read you correctly? You accept the irrelevancy, you are just whining about the world's unfairness. So do many Serbs, I presume. That's ok with me. Be well. And take care when you cross the street, or ask a grownup to help you.

What division? Jews united over Iran deal

Not only are left and right in Israel united in opposition to Obama's compact of appeasement; the deal has made bedfellows of an astonishing array of Jewish organizations in America.

Palestinian workers stand under a shelter

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.
