    1. I just love the comments from outside of Israel. To sit outside this Israel and judge is easy, if it's not your children getting shot at or blown up. It's like the Hague putting the fence on trial. Blah Blah Blah, Bad Israel, Blah Blah Blah. I wonder how many of this forum's commenter see Israeli TV where they put the Jewish troublemakers on the evening news. They don't turn them into heros, they make them look like people who are harassing the Arab locals and breaking the law. The fact the Israeli TV aired the documentary says something about the fairness of the Israeli press. 2. Not every Israeli who lives over the Green Line is a gun toting fanatic who over turns the Arab stalls in the market and teaches their children to hate. The difference is when the Jewish wackos get caught they go to jail, or at least get arrested. 3. What Yavin failed to do was put normal settlers (and yes there are some) who are willing to trade land for TRUE peace in his documentary. When was the last time you saw a "settler" on the tube saying "yeah I'll go if it means peace". You've haven't because it's not good TV. But there out there (in numbers), and there are more of them out there than the troublemakers. 4. What Yavin did do, is give anti-Israeli bashers more ammo. So forums like this can chastised Israel yet another day. For those of you from Stockholm, the USA, and wherever else you maybe, hello there's a genocide in the Sudan, one in four people have HIV in sub-Saharan Africa, the Far East is devastated from the Tsunami, Iran is about to get nuclear capabilities, and people are being beheaded by fanatics in Iraq, maybe your extra time could be better used.

Which foods make you fat? The answer is in your gut

Is rice more healthful than ice cream? Not necessarily. Are potatoes harmful? Not for everyone. A breakthrough study by two researchers from the Weizmann Institute shows that each of us has a different 'microbiome,' that makes us respond to foods differently. Get ready for a new medical revolution.
