Bad Palestinians and Good Palestinians
It has become increasingly difficult to distinguish between
the political leadership of the Palestinian people and the
wild terrorists. All of the senior leaders -- Bargouti,
Dahlan, Rajoub and the others -- are deeply involved in the
daily terror. Even Yasser Arafat himself, the immediate
commander of Force 17, is apparently sending out murder
squads to shoot and bomb indiscriminately.
The Prohibition of Legal Actions in Non-halachic Courts
Suppose that you have witnessed a traffic accident between
two cars and one of the drivers asks you to give formal
testimony in front of an Israeli court in proceedings run

Bid Yerushalayim take Heart
Three months ago a huge demonstration took place outside the
walls of the old city under the banner of "I pledge
