    "It is great to see the down fall of the American arrogance and the rise of revolutionary powers." Take another look at America. Take another look at those who call us arrogant and celebrate that they think we are hurting so bad, then think about it a little bit. Who is really hurting? Truth is, we are hurting less than any another other country in the entire world. By pretty much any standard one can use that does not involve hateful illusion. There are still more people trying to get into America than anywhere else in the world and it is not because we are hurting. People are leaving by the tens of thousands in Lebanon. People are still flocking to Israel. You sound like Nassrallah hiding behind women and children in fear for his life while his country is being destroyed all around him bragging about how victorious he is. No matter how much you may celebrate and enjoy your perception that we are hurting, we truly are sad to see how you really are hurting. We take no joy in that. As a matter of a fact, we are collecting money and doing everything we can to ease your pain. I hope things get better for you so that you can experience taking pleasure in something other than hate.

There was no security breach in what the former defense minister said about how an attack was thwarted; what has suffered is mainly Israel’s image.

One of Black Seed Bagels’ specialities.

How the bagel went from shtetls to haute cuisine
