The immediate punishment that comes to Israeli officials and security forces for Palestinians who attack Israelis is to raze their homes.  This has become a norm in Israel since a very long time. more >>
Palestine, the last of the Liberation movements has a special place in the hearts and minds of the countries that were liberated in the 20th century. more >>
I love Adam Sandler. From Billy Madison to Happy Gilmore to the Chanukah Song, the predecessor of the Superbad generation has effortlessly conquered the domain of slapstick comedy and inappropriate jokes.

Israel's ruling elite now has a major aspiration: to join the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) as a member country.

Once again, the Israeli military lied to its citizens and the rest of the world.  In an article published June 6 on YNet, the online version of the Israeli mass daily Yedioth Ahronoth, the Israeli military claimed that it was justified in attacking an anti-wall and anti-occupation demonstration, in which an Irish Nobel Peace Laureate and the Vice President of the European Parliament participated, because demonstration participants were "rioting" and "throwing stones" at the Israeli military [1]. more >>

The goal of the Annapolis process, launched by President George W. Bush in November 2007, was to reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement by the end of 2008. Until now, U.S.-led diplomacy has failed to provide PLO chairman Mahmoud Abbas with any meaningful achievements on the two indivisible issues--settlements and borders--that will define the territory of the Palestinian state intended to be established by mutual agreement.
