Rainless and cotton-white it had turned a whiskered cat staring down from eye over the spiked antenna of the neighbor, a picture of a ghostly vision of a feline.

The UN Human Rights Report (the Davis Report) on Israel’s conduct in the war on Gaza last summer is forensic and clear. It points the finger directly at Israel’s alleged war crimes. Criticism of the Palestinian resistance is obligatory. But it says little. The asymmetry of the war is such that Is... Read more of this blog post »

Who deserves the credit for your successes? If you said, “I do,” you may be mostly right. We all must make our own choices and reap the results of those choices.
