Timely Advice For The Prime Minister

If this ill-conceived plan is ever carried out it would serve as a most dangerous precedent bordering on committing national suicide.

A Memory Of Justice – Chrysler’s Decline And The Third Reich

There can be no justice without memory. In 1998, Chrysler entered into an ambitious merger agreement with Germany's Daimler-Benz.

Peres And The Gaza Transfer: A Scenario of the Imagination

Imagine! Shimon Peres - perennial antagonist of the settlers, self-appointed apologist for Arafat, tireless defender of the Arabs - had suddenly sprouted feathers of a different color.

The David Haivri Case

Were it not for the evident seriousness of its implications, the David Haivri case would represent little more than the reduction to absurdity of a democratic country's legal system.
