    Trouble brewing on the Israel-Palestine front. But that would hardly news with 'fan following' of Syria, Egypt and Afghanistan.
    An Israeli construction worker is killed by militants on the Gaza-Egypt border. Israel sends its combat aircraft to defend and kill 6 Palestinians, a mosque is burned and vandalized. The village of Susya in Hebron is ordred demolished by IDF. 'Militants' in retaliation fire rockets harming no one, as is mostly the case. Now IDF is weighing retaliation.
    It goes on and on, the world too busy for the past 6 decades to worry about such trivial matters.
    Good morning all.

      Good Morning to you saywhat.
      Thank you for those observations. It is true though, Israel hasn't been garnering much attention lately. The most I've heard about them is the other day warning Iran that time was running out in regards to their nuclear program. The, as you say, world focus has been on Syria and the lack of world involvement. But all in all, it's just same-ole, same-ole.
      It makes ones mind weary.

    Just to test the waters

    Two physics students bump into each other walking across campus. One of them is wheeling his shiny new bicycle along with him.

    "Wow!” his friend says, “I really like your new bike!"

    "Thanks,” says the first friend. “It was the strangest thing! I was walking across campus the other day and a beautiful young girl rode her bike up to me, got off, ripped off all her clothes, threw herself on the ground, and said 'Take whatever you want!'"

    "Smart move," the friend replies. "There's no way her clothes would have fit you."
