    Most Jews and especially Israeli Jews are Zionists - being that its essence is that the Jewish people should return to their homeland. There's a difference between a Zionist who believes in pursuing the Greater Israel form of Zionism as supposedly stipulated in the Torah. The latter is what Mr. Arens seems to espouse to this type of Zionism, but don't quote me for certain. Nevertheless, it's my opinion that Herzl, Jabotinsky and David Ben Gurion would today, given the global situation and pretty well the moderate Arab world's acceptance of Israel, that they would have supported PM Olmert and FM Tzipi Livni of Kadima. They're reformed right-wingers anyways. Con't next post...

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
