Lately, I have little spare time and it shows

I can see how reading comprehension skills are not necessarily something one should take for granted. I saw this headline at Ynet News: “Fornication not a magic solution” and clicked in to read the article. It was all about the current shortcomings of trying to fortify the Israeli home-front. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure how the sex came into it. It was then that I glanced up at the headline again and realized it read “Fortification” and not “Fornication.” Geeze, some days it’s amazing I can get out of bed without a map.

The Israeli Knesset recommendations on reforming the conversion process in Israel were released and has been subsequently slammed by both the Orthodox and Reform rabbinate – unity at last.

Well, surprise, surprise. Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyr’s Brigade has announced it will no longer keep the truce with Israel. How very hamas of them.

Abbas' Fatah government is paying Gaza civil servants not to work. And will wonders never cease? But my - how very Canadian of Fatah. Now I understand completely why the Canadian government is jumping back on funding the Fatah bandwagon.

Well, I guess we what Kate's been thinking about...

But I must ask: When did al-Aqsa Brigades ever keep a truce? They've been claiming responsibility for most of the rocket attacks in the last 18 months....

And Abbas is paying Gaza gov't workers not to work? What else is new? There is a saying in the PA, about their "government:" Why let one man do what five men can do slower?
