The Outrageous: Insulting action by Tel Aviv’s Mayor who seems ignorant of the distinction between humanitarian help and honoring an enemy.

Shurat Hadin: Israel’s foremost legal NGO explains in detail the background to the Beirut explosion.

Turmoil: In America. How the House of Representatives has replaced the primacy of dialogue with self-promoting monologue.

Joe Biden: Under wraps and following the advice of Abraham Lincoln: ”Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

The Irish example: Can we convince the Palestinian Arabs that it is better to live for one’s ideals than to die for them?

The fear of China: Can we deal with their electronic superiority and plan to dominate the world’s infrastructure projects?

COVID-19: Where do we go from here?

And more.
