The Last Word: A History of Violence

The Last Word: A History of Violence Categories: Australasia, Islamic Extremism, Terrorism     Author: Jeremy Jones

I look forward to the time when the antisemitic ratbags who claim Islamic authority, together with those who seek to create a wider conflict with all Western society, are clearly and unambiguously told that they have no call on solidarity with co-religionists - and when the prominent voices condemni

There is no doubt that "5 Broken Cameras" is a moving, emotional and powerful film.

"100 Jewish donors." Google it, and 17,000 results follow; 1,490 just in Google's "News" tab. Strung together, those words sound altruistic.

The summer of 2005 was especially hot in Israel, but not just because of the high temperatures and Middle-Eastern climate. That summer the heat was political, as Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip.
