Civil Liberties and the Governance Act

My problem is with the part of the law that requires 61 signatures in order to submit a no-confidence measure in the Knesset, which effectively neutralizes the no-confidence option.

Preliminary thoughts on the halachic status of lab-created meat: it's kosher--if you started the process kosher. but no final words yet.

After A Few False Starts, A Match Made In Heaven

I almost never met the man I married. No, I am not from a very strict chassidishe home where dating is taboo and a brief meeting suffices before the engagement is announced.

Palestinian Statehood, Terror, and the US Election (Pt. 2)

Whenever an insurgent group resorts to openly unjust means, its actions become incontestably terroristic. Even if the ritualistic Palestinian claim of a hostile Israeli "occupation" were somehow reasonable rather than invented, the corresponding right of entitlement to oppose Israel "by any means necessary" would be false.
