Terrorism has taken another route in Israel – fires have been burning out of control while multiple countries sent additional planes to drop water on our desert nation.  The city of Haifa, home to many University students and hi-tech industries is the latest blaze requiring tens of thousands to be evacuated.  The latest bulletin stated that […]

What About The Hague? International Answers for ISIS Prisoners

June 15th, 2016, No Comments

The Netherlands is also the hinterland for international justice. An international appeal is now warranted to that August body for help with an international crisis. We are faced with a quandary in the form of ISIS that you may not understand first hand from your living room sofa. I divide my time between America, where […]

Written in the Negev Desert. After determining the time was right to return to Israel from the USA, I reviewed the various ways that was managed. This would be a return even if I hadn’t already made my first visit to ‘The Land’ in 2013. A Jewish person is called a Yehudi, a Hebrew word […]

This is the second of three recent Op-Ed columns from the New York Times which are being examined for their common view that the history of men, plural or singular, can somehow be ‘re-written’ by women.
