    It has more to do with Iraq and Iran, I think, than with Israel and Armenia. Turkey's new intelligence chief is a threat; I read there were many friendly Iranian agents in the Turkish army; now one shows up the head of Turkey's intelligence. As a member of NATO, Turkey has a lot of our secrets. Iran is infiltrating every country, including Lebanon, Syria, Turkey. Obama and Biden may be just as condescending and patronizing as Bush, that is true;so will the next President be (could have helped the poor people more). According to "60 minutes", China has also stolen a lot of our secrets. I am certainly concerned that we trust these so-called friends and they stab us in the back. As far as Incirlik, we can find another base I am sure; however, I am not so sure Turkey did not cost us in some way, with the games they were playing with Incirlik. Certainly they have no love for us. They are more worried about the Kurdish situation.

The dating shame: Orthodox obsession with externals

As a married woman, I get to see the other side of the dating world these days – that of the ‘matchmaker’ – and wonder what message is being sent to my generation of bright, religiously passionate women
