Re: Israel

"The much-anticipated U.S. peace plan" https://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Moving-the-goalpost-560600 "The chance of a deal being reached seems far fetched." Yep. The late Charles Krauthammer said it best. It was words to the effect (wish I had the exact quote) that Israel was not willing to entrust its ...

Re: Anthony Bourdain headed to parts unknown

Sadly the individual fights people have which we know nothing about are lost.

As far a orthodox Israelis are concerned - their social interactions and beliefs are a matter for Israelis to dea...

Re: Israel

Ah Sertorio, I was expecting your retort and surprisingly I agree with most of it except for your assertion that Bashar is the Islamic moderating Messiah. He is a ruthless tirrent locked in a survival battle with other Muslim factions being propped up by Putin, Erdugan, ISIS and Iran. Impossible to ...

Re: Israel

I just read with interest the last exchanges since the US Embassy move. It is quite interesting to see the very same facts interpreted in so many different ways. I would preferably see a peaceful resolution where the Arabs who do not want to live under Israeli rule would be relocated to Jordan, or o...

Russian exports have plunged over the last 4 years and the downtrend continues especially in the critical Military technology market where Russia saw a 6% decline in spite of the weakening Ruble. It's major clients are not buying mu...
