( - Guys, it seems for some I need to set the record straight so, in case you had any doubt, you rock. I have my eyes open even more now than ever before to the injustice that being female can leave women open to, from a place of deciding... Continue reading

( - This last year has been so much about change and growth. It is all good change, if at times challenging and heart wrenching. The little me that used to be outwardly bolshie to protect herself and inwardly scared to be what she wanted to be, no longer feels... Continue reading

( - It’s assignment time again and I can’t wait to breathe a sigh of relief when the barrage of deadlines is done. It is tough working enough hours in a low paid job to pay the bills and also making the grade. Too much investment goes in to financial... Continue reading

This article is by by Soeren Kern of Hudson New York. La Meca, a popular discotheque in southern Spain, has agreed to change its name and architectural design after Islamic extremists threatened to initiate "a great war between Spain and the people of Islam" if it did not. The nightclub controversy (which has parallels to the Danish cartoon imbroglio of 2005) has spread across the Muslim world in recent weeks and has risked escalating into an international crisis. The controversy not only signals the increasing assertiveness of Spain's rapidly growing Muslim community; it also demonstrates that Spain remains firmly in... Continue reading
First line of defense - Israel News, Ynetnews: Kemp explained to his interlocutor that Israel had no choice but to engage Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, and stressed that the actions the IDF was taking in order to avoid civilian casualties were exceptional, especially because Hamas fighters had been trained by Hezbollah and Iran to fight from within a civilian population. Later he also defended Israel's reputation during a testimony before the Goldstone committee, which investigated the Gaza offensive, taking aim at the international community for heaping criticism on the state. On Tuesday Kemp arrived in Israel to take part... Continue reading

LA Times - Michael Oren: Given our experience of disappointment and trauma, it's astonishing that Israelis still support the peace process at all. Yet we do, and by an overwhelming majority. Imagine that you're a parent who sends her children off to school in the morning worrying whether their bus will become a target of suicide bombers. Imagine that, instead of going off to college, your children become soldiers at age 18, serve for three years and remain in the active reserves into their 40s. Imagine that you have fought in several wars, as have your parents and even your... Continue reading,0,6374377.story# A great piece and a great answer to TIME magazine. Well written Michael Oren.
