Five for Friday

A few links I found worthwhile:

  • Hunger Games – “Trust us on this: being the parents of a child who was murdered changes the way you look at things.
  • Mirror, mirror – “This is the real Arab Spring. Syrians are hurting Syrians and the Israelis are the ones who treat the Syrian wounds.
  • Higher! Faster! Stronger! Jewishly! – “Most, but not all Jewish communities, are represented. Though there are tens of thousands of Jews still living in Iran, not a single one of them will take part.
  • Peaceful, huh? – “This is what they are taught in schools in the West Bank: to harm IDF soldiers.
  • Cliff Richard: From Wimbledon to Nazareth – “Building bridges between communities is always admirable.”

Enjoy! And Shabbat Shalom.
