There’s no doubt that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has made a lot of fans during his official state visit to Israel, Monday. Israeli Canadians went absolutely gaga over him, lining up the streets (well, one street) to welcome his procession. It’s so rare that someone out there should be on our side these days, […]

Dozens of customers line up to purchase their morning coffee at the grand opening of a new coffee store, soon to be a chain, by the name of Coffix, on Ben Yehuda Street in central Jerusalem.
