    The mouth of the just brings forth wisdom; but the perverse tongue shall be cut out. (Proverbs 10.31) There are those who speak like the thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise heals. (12.18) The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, but the mouth of fools pours out foolishness. (15.2) A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but crookedness in it is a break in the spirit. (15.4) He who has a perverse heart finds no good, and he who has a crooked tongue falls into mischief. (17.20) Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps his soul from troubles. (21.23)

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.'
