Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

Posted on January 3, 2018 at 7:34am 3 Comments

Yesterday, the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, passed a bill requiring a two-thirds majority to divide Jerusalem. The vote was 64 to 52. The only bright spot is that there’s enough internal opposition to this idiocy that a change of seven votes would have defeated it. 

This is not a good idea. The reality in Israel/Palestine is that neither population is going anywhere and the only way to achieve anything like peace is to come up…
