Sometimes, when you read the news, you really need to check if this is a Purim or April’s Fools’ Day joke or not. A UAE’s businessman wants to tow a giant polar iceberg to his desert country for drinking water.
He probably missed the Israeli invention that now can “make water” out of the clear blue sky. Freedom of the press can save a lot of work.
Trump’s peace team is aiming for a home run. That would be more of an achievement if the other team would have shown up at all.
An Israeli general has remarked that in a campaign against Gaza’s junta “cutting off the head of the snake will spare us the need to handle all its arms.” Probably never has had any Bible or biology lessons, I guess.
The Jerusalem municipality chose for a monstrous Chords Bridge at the entrance to the city, also to show how modern it is. This should keep more non-religious citizens from fleeing to less spiritual municipalities.
The designer has erected similar bridges around the world but still had to ask a fortune for his “unique” design.
Why not just traffic lights to have the light railway trains cross without a bridge? The $70M answer was: because ongoing traffic at the entrance can’t be stopped, every time a train comes. That’s now debunked.
Its major traffic artery will be closed for renovations. A day? A weekend? A week? A month? A year? No, for three years. Sure, no problem.
We all knew that we had been lied to. But sometimes you need to wait for the proof to come in.
Jerusalem’s city entrance is remodeled for a whole bunch of skyscrapers. Remember, the economy flourishes means, the rich make money. The average person is not considered. The money supposedly would trickle down. The only thing I’ve seen trickling down is rain from a leaking roof.
Put them next to the Holyland complex, illegally built but not broken down — unlike illegal structures in Arab Jerusalem. Permits for previously approved additions to the complex were in 2014 “permanently frozen.”
That means, the complex will now be doubled. Shameless chutzpah without limit. If you dislike it, you’re not modern enough and a whiner.
Money talks. But we don’t need to listen.
