    The X Factor Gloria Steinem, in her September 4th editorial in the Los Angeles Times, came out strongly against Governor Palin claiming the only thing women have in common with Palin is an X chromosome. I respectfully disagree. Governor Palin knows what it is like to be a woman, a mother, a daughter, a sister - things the two men on the Democratic ticket can never fully understand. She knows what it is like to grow up invisible in an incredibly sexist society, to be stared at, groped, and sexually harassed. She knows what it is like to be smaller...

    BEIT SHEMESH (December 25) - The organization that administers Orot school in Beit Shemesh issued an apology yesterday for publicly burning a copy of the New Testament a student received from Christian missionaries. "Everybody knows we made a mistake," said Jordana Klein, spokeswoman for Sha'alei Torah. "We wouldn't do it again. We don't think it's the right thing to do." The book-burning took place in the school courtyard the week before Hanukka, after a teacher in the boys' school found that one of his sixth-grade students had brought in a Hebrew copy of the New Testament.

    Hundreds of posters are being circulated around the world featuring a large, full-face photo of Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat. The caption on the bottom of the poster reads, "What You See Is What You Get." A closer examination of the picture reveals that it is actually a mosaic composed of thousands of little photographs depicting terrorist attack scenes. The poster, according to ynet, is being distributed to pro-Israel organizations, both Jewish and non-Jewish, in North America and Europe. Officials in Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs claim they are "not involved in distributing the poster." Diplomatic sources told ynet that ...
