History and utopia
2012-12-21 07:22:00
To talk about values is the toughest part. Proving theorems is straightforward, but how could you prove that two parallel lines do not cross in infinity? The opposite view is just as good. Try talking about suicidal Israeli politics with a worshiper of ethnic-blind democracy. Everything is fine for him: odd Jews become like other people and embrace Arabs. Assimilators do not consider what it means to be like others. Other people have their countries, distinctive secular cultures, and nationalist heroes. Jews have always lacked that. The normality of a nation is measured by it having a country and a culture. Jews normalize by shedding our distinctive features and adopting those of other nations. That is not normalization, but assimilation. Jews do not behave like a normal nation which strives to preserve its distinctiveness. The United States or France assimilate their aliens and integrate them into the existing cultural core. The Torah prescribes likewise: pagan residents of the Je...
The trial of the century : Mubarak?s Trial in Numbers
2012-06-01 20:35:00
It is the trial of the century in Egypt that all Egyptians and the whole world will watch tomorrow with a lot of anticipation. The trial will be transferred on air since early morning. Already the Egyptian TV may collect a fortune tomorrow for allowing the other channels to transfer the broadcast on air just like in football match !! There are lots of anticipations as well lots of fears.There are not high hopes though because in both cases. Technically tomorrow there will be an army  from armed forces and central security forces outside the police academy. There is great fear from violent clashes in case that Mubarak is acquitted. The families of the martyrs fear that there will be clashes tomorrow. The Mubarak supporters say that they will respect the court?s final verdict. Some observers believe that judge Ahmed Rafeat may adjourn the verdict announcement till things calm down after the presidential elections. People believe that Mubarak and co. will be sentenced then S...

What an interesting timing to publish these photos !!
2012-05-30 12:40:00
Al Watan Newspaper published today a supplement its journalists believe to be the scoop of the year : The diaries of Mubarak in jail !! Mubarak standing and his son Alaa The report shows exclusive photos of Mubarak standing in his trial as well his son Alaa speaking to someone smiling and Mubarak on bed whereas his son Gamal besides him in court. The report also includes info from unknown sources about what Mubarak used to do in the past year and half. Of course if you want my opinion , I think it was better to publish the photos only because seriously no one buys these tales from unknown sources about what Mubarak did that or this or Mubarak said this or that which nobody buys anymore !! Here are some examples : Mubarak believes that all the presidential candidates fighting for the presidential posts are idiots except Ahmed Shafik !! Mubarak was visited by the Prince of Kuwait and Sultan of Oman !! ?It was denied by Kuwaiti embassy in Cairo ? Mubarak thinks SCAF is so weak a...

Facebook's IPO Morality Tale: If The Green Shoes Fit, Wear Them?
2012-05-23 19:05:00
Facebook's reversal of fortunes in such a short span of time has played out almost like a modern-day morality tale.  The fall-out of the social network post-IPO, after such an enthusiastic build-up was telling. While it lined the pockets of some (namely investment bankers), it deprived the 99 Percenters (or Dumb F*cks as Zuckerberg so adroitly labeled them back in 2004) full-disclosure, resulting in a subsequent short-fall on their FB investment.

Orioles Make History, but Rangers take three out of four from them; the Ray
2012-05-11 19:38:00
On Thursday, the Orioles managed to split their single-game doubleheader with the Rangers; however, much like on Tuesday, history was made – again. In game one, the Orioles won 6-5, as they homered five times off Texas starter Colby Lewis. They started the game off with three consecutive homers from Ryan Flaherty, J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis and Adam Jones along with Matt Wieters joined in the fun. All the hits by Baltimore were homers. Lewis’s feat – that is, serving up the home runs, plus striking out 12 – was the first time any pitcher gave up five homers and struck out more than 10 batters since 1918. Weird. He was too effective at a point, sitting down 18 straight batters. The Orioles would not give up the lead; however, things became extremely compelling in the ninth inning as the bullpen gave up three runs as Luis Ayala allowed two runners to reach base. Afterwards, Jim Johnson was summoned into action and gave up a three-run homer to David Murphy. He wo...

How Many "Dumb F*cks" Will Rock Facebook's IPO Like It's 1999?
2012-05-08 21:26:00
The term "Dumb F*cks" has hung over Mark Zuckerberg like a dark cloud over the course of the last 8 years. Not because his nickname "Zuck" rhymes with the expletive, but because the CEO of today's largest social network derided his early FB users as such. In 2004, when first percolating the idea of FB in a Harvard dorm room and asked how he attracted so many followers so quickly, he off-handedly responded they were following him blindly, like "Dumb F*cks."
