    Unfortunately, as long as the likes of Pelosi, Lieberman, Schumer, et al are dominating U.S. policy, the U.S. will continue to turn a blind eye to Israel's provocations. The only sensible explanations for Israel's seemingly drunken behavior is that Netanyahu and Lieberman (Israel's) are reinforcing their position with the settlers by feeding them a steady diet of raw meat. Hitler eventually found it necessary to purge his brownshirts, just as King Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia eliminated the fundamentalist Bedouin who fueled his drive to power. The Israeli government, if it is to retain a shred of dignity and international standing, will one day have to rein in its settler supporters. The longer it waits, the more difficult and bloody it will be.

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.'
