Shavua tov!

I saw this on Ynetnews just as I was shutting down my computer before Shabbat. Today, it is being reported widely, with every kind of 'spin' imaginable...

West Bank settlers, U.S. consulate staff clash

Police: Jewish settlers attack U.S. officials in West Bank

You get the idea. Just Google or search Yahoo News with the two words settlers and consulate and look at what comes up. Amazing! End of my commentary. The title is self-explanatory and you can draw your own conclusions.

PS: Imagine if this took place at the entrance to Jerusalem or the Old City. Don't think it's possible? Well, think again...

US book exposes secret US military presence in Israel

William Arkin: The US Army has at least five bases in Israel, including one at Ben Gurion Airport, and one in Herzliya Pituah.

And that was in 2005. It's now up to 7 or 8!! With what is reported to be held in these bases, the US could set up a government in exile here!! And let's not forget how close US troops are deployed already on the other side of Israel, aka Jordan.
