Comment on: Why mastectomies are on the rise - Health & wellness - The Boston Globe
Posted 02/04/2013 09:56:32 EST
There are a number of other reasons not mentioned in the article: 1. My understanding is that the lifetime possibility of cancer in the other ('healthy') breast is 20%; in half of these cases the can more »
Comment on: The economic toll of Islamic law - Ideas - The Boston Globe
Posted 07/02/2012 08:04:40 EDT
Does the Globe comments section no longer support paragraphs? Mine were completely eliminated, making the post (and any post of more than a few sentences) difficult to read. more »

It's delusional to point to Turkey and Indonesia as 'success stories' of democracy or economic growth. Turkey was ruled by a military dictatorship for many years, after a period of political infightin more »
Comment on: Israelâs chance amid change - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/29/2011 08:34:40 EDT
BTW, a million Israelis - about 18% of the country - have been living in bomb shelters due to rocket attacks from Gaza, which have killed and injured people. Yesterday there was a terrorist attack in more »

Is the author of this article insane? An armed terrorist group, funded in part by the Turkish government, joined a convoy dedicated to allowing the free flow of arms to another terrorist group (Hamas) more »
Comment on: 'Battered by nationwide criticism, why is Wellesley standing by its religion curriculum?'

Also, news reports at the time indicated that parents DID complain to school administrators, but no action was taken until the video (which was not made by APT) was publicized. The story also omitted more »

There are some important factual inaccuracies in this stories. First, the Boston mosque DOES have extensive ties to Islamic extremists. Its founder was convicted on terrorism-related charges, board me more »
Comment on: Americaâs one-sided Mideast policy breeds turmoil - The Boston Globe
Posted 08/25/2011 05:40:54 EDT
At an anti-Israel protest this week, Murray was asked if she denounced the murder of Israeli civilians by Hamas/Fatah terrorists. All she could say was "Which one?" (it's hard to single out an attack more »
Posted 08/25/2011 05:35:51 EDT
Murray is head of the ACLU in Boston. She is a well-known anti-Israel hater and will stop at no length or lie to demonize and destroy the Jewish people. The ACLU recently announced it was filing suit more »

I want to ditto the comment(s) that there ARE great men out there who will treat you well, who are not addicts nor have serious mental health issues, and have also have great (or at least decent) jobs more »
Comment on: Israeli museum plan an act of desecration - The Boston Globe
Posted 07/19/2011 09:48:26 EDT
The article is misleading to the point of being a complete lie. The land in question has been a parking lot for the past 65 years. Prior to that, it was a cemetery, however the graves were removed by more »
Comment on: 'Divided Palestinians cancel meeting'
Posted 06/20/2011 09:55:28 EDT
The 'dog sentenced to stoning' story is untrue. The paper that reported it, Ma'ariv, has issued a retraction and apology. It's in Hebrew, but you can find an English translation here: http://jonathant more »
Comment on: Israel is the one that should mend ties - The Boston Globe
Posted 06/19/2011 10:02:00 EDT
I'm puzzled to understand how Israel is 'occupying' Gaza when the government forcibly evacuated the entire Jewish population so that Gazan Muslims (who then murdered or expelled most Christians) could more »
Comment on: 'Israeli PM: Jerusalem will never be divided'
Posted 06/06/2011 09:49:18 EDT
A sovereign nation has the right to decide what, if any, part of its land it is willing to part with in an agreement. It is Israel's right to decide whether or not she is willing to negotiate away hal more »
Comment on: 'Mideast tensions shape mood of annual Celebrate Israel Parade in New York'
Posted 06/06/2011 09:24:27 EDT
This is a silly article with selective reporting and a completely untrue headline. The Celebrate Israel parade attracted 30,000 people - the largest crowd it's ever had. According to both news and per more »
Comment on: Status quo in Mideast is unsustainable - The Boston Globe
Posted 06/03/2011 10:25:02 EDT
There is no reason why the status quo is "unsustainable". That argument is used primarily by those who want to pressure Israel into making dangerous concessions while asking nothing of the genocidal r more »

Posted 05/25/2011 04:12:34 EDT
Some friends of mine had a similar issue. They compromised by having a simple civil ceremony in the judge's office and a larger, white-dress, religious ceremony some months later. They also decided to more »
Comment on: Palestinians still await return to their homeland - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/20/2011 12:23:02 EDT
The letter writer neglected to mention who told the Arabs to leave their homes - it was their own leaders. They told people that they should leave while Arabs armies 'took care' of the Jews, and that more »
Comment on: Islamic fundamentalism: separating the good from the bad - The Boston Globe
Posted 05/15/2011 04:12:20 EDT
There is an enormous difference between the Koran and the Torah (much of which was incorporated in the Bible) in terms of their less palatable strictures - ie. 'an eye for an eye', death penalty for t more »

How is it possible for Israel to "avoid friction" with Hamas under these circumstances? more »
Posted 04/12/2011 07:00:13 EDT
The AP and Globe neglect to say that the bus had been full of schoolchildren less than 10 minutes before the attack, and only sheer luck prevented to death of scores of children, which is what Hamas w more »
Comment on: The Middle East and the deaths of innocents - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/26/2011 08:25:03 EDT
BTW, the figures cited in the letter are wrong - which anyone who is familiar with Cast Lead would know. Hamas has ADMITTED that over 700 deaths (out of about 1100) were Hamas members; slightly over 3 more »
Posted 03/26/2011 08:07:08 EDT
The author is either completely ignorant of history or just hates Israelis (aka Jews). The war in Gaza was a result of Hamas firing over 8,000 rockets into Israel, many of them aimed at schools and ho more »
Comment on: 'Israeli attack kills 4 civilians'
Posted 03/23/2011 10:32:35 EDT
I'm waiting for the outrage from the anti-Israel/anti-semitic posters about the terrorist bomb attack on an Israeli bus station. Haven't heard any so far. Nor have I heard a single comment from the an more »
