Coexistance is Possible!

This is a truly heartwarming account of Israeli women risking their lives and liberty to help Palestinian women have a bit more of an enjoyable life. It isn't all hatred as many seem to believe. I heard Rep Cantor say that Palestinians "are bred in hate and intolerance." This is disgustingly false (admittedly, it does hold true for some, but not all as Cantor alluded). I am glad that some Jews are able to see through this net of lies.

In light of the Oslo tragedy...

Why are our police (collectively, not just the US) so slow to do their jobs until after the fact? We get too lax in our prosperity that we don't see things coming even when they are advertised aplenty.

The surprise is that we are still surprised.

They're climbing in your windows and they're snatching yo' people you better...

If this doesn't make sense to you, either you were born in the 90's, or you haven't seen these youtube sensations: 1 & 2.

Tragedy in Norway

A tragedy struck Norway yesterday. A right-wing Christian extremist planted a bomb at a government people killing 7 and causing much damage. This is where it gets disgusting: he brings a shotgun, machine gun, and pistol to a camp of teenagers on a nearby island and kills 80 or so more. They fear the death toll will rise to 98 soon. It is possible he wasn't acting alone. If this kind of tragedy can happen there, in the quiet country of Norway, we most certainly are not immune. Pray for those people suffering.
Norwegians are mourning the victims of a vicious attack at an island youth camp and in the capital Oslo.

Women Activists

This brave woman and countless others are beginning to demand their rights as human beings. We must support them and others vying for freedom worldwide.

A Saudi woman whose imprisonment for driving drew global attention for the issue says she is more determined than ever to continue her campaign.

Laugh Out Loud

FYI: Read Wikipedia's account of the Moustache. It is quite interesting. To whet your appetite:
In Western cultures women generally avoid the growth of facial hair; though some are capable, the majority of these women use some form of depilation to remove it. In rare circumstances, women may choose to embrace this growth, often in the form of thin moustaches. Mexican artist Frida Kahlo famously depicted herself in her artwork with both a moustache and a unibrow. This tradition is followed by some contemporary women in the arts.

Russia has always been a little behind....

So it seems that Russia finally declared beer as not food but rather alcohol. I had to re-read that. But, yes, you read right. President Medvedev signed a bill saying this officially. Interesting...

I LOVE Emma Watson

So, beginning with the 4th Harry Potter movie, I recognized Emma Watson as a rising beauty. Then with 5, it was certain. Now that she's finished both the 7th movies, I think I am in love. How could she get better you ask? Well, read on dear readers and find out...

"I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’ embarrassing and confusing. If I do an interview with photographs people desperately want to change me - dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn’t do that. Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt, have a look at everything I’ve got?’ My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder." 


I have thought this for a few years now, and it seems Al Jazeera is justifying me. With an ever increasing world population, how are we going to feed them and give them to drink? Good question, right? Well, this article talks about the problems with it. Definitely worth reading.

Almost half of humanity will face water scarcity by 2030 and strategists from Israel to Central Asia prepare for strife.

ps it is interesting that the US doesn't have that problem so much. brings new meaning to the term "promised land" eh?
