    Israel needs a solution, needs peace. Who doesn't. So why elect this juggler artist grandstander Netanyahu, assisted by the lesser artist Barak. Why do Israelis keep electing the grandstanders. The ones who promise the rainbows and the settlements, but in the end will fall in the pit of their political cowardice and self serving corruption. Netanyahu was caught red handed dipping into State assets (furniture and gifts). Yet Israelis elected him again because he promised them the rainbow again. The Palestinians were caught by another grandstander Arafat and his corrupt entourage who promised the rainbows as well. And now the hamas grandstanders. So on and on we go, and the grandstanders will keep rolling by for encores. And the good people - all people - are continuously fooled. We the fools need to wake up for a change. The rainbow is just a mirage. We need substance and decency in our leaders for a change. When we get that then the solution and peace between us is attained.

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.'
