I am not sure why asking about putting a Jew on the money makes him "entitled", but his second point is definitely good..

Proposed Law: Term Limits

The issue of introducing term limits into the Israeli government system is back on the table.

A law proposal has been submitted for the upcoming session of Knesset. The proposal, submitted by the Opposition but including support from some coalition members, including some from the Likud, would limit the Prime Minister's ability to stay in that position for two term.

Obviously it does not have a reasonable chance of passing, but ya never know.

Supposedly, senior Likudniks have been talking about this as a possibility, and MK Oren Hazzan has even come out publicly in favor.

Personally I think some sort of term limits is important. However it has to be constructed in a way that will work. In Israel's political system, the term limits cannot be just defined as "two terms". Governments rarely last their full term. If two terms is the limit, one prime minister could last 9 or so years, and the next could hit his limit after two years. Either the entire system needs to be changed or the term limits law would have to include a quantification by number of years in office.

As well, I am against any law that is designed to affect a specific person. This law seems to be targeting Netanyahu himself, so I am against it. I think there should be term limits, but if they pass this law, Netanyahu should be grandfathered in to allow him to continue, and maybe just limit him to two more "terms".

I do think Netanyahu should step down in the near future and leave politics. Not because I don't like him, but because I do not think it is healthy for any democracy to be ruled by one person for so long. Despite the fact that I think Netanyahu should no longer be Prime Minister of Israel, I am not in favor of removing him by introducing a law to get rid of him.

The Egyptian version of the birther movement

Did a foreign Pharoah give Egypt a bad name?

That's what the director of the Antiquities Authority of Egypt is claiming.

Dr. Mustafa Waziri is claiming that the king named {haroah in the Bible was a ruler over parts of Egypt, but he himself was not actually Egyptian. Rather, according to Waziri, Pharoah was from a nomadic tribe known as Hyksos. The Hyksos tribe meandered into Egypt at some point and even ruled the country for a few hundred years.

Waziri further claims, against accepted knowledge in the archaeological community, that the word "Pharoah" is NOT the generic title of the king of Egypt. Rather, Waziri claims, Pharoah was the name of this specific ruler. Waziri says the claim of Phaorah being the title of King of Egypt is an urban legend started by the Jews with intent to lay false blame on the Egyptian people for their enslavement.

Waziri points to the Koran as proof for his claims. He points to the fact that the title Pharoah is never used in the Koran in reference to the ruler of Egypt. As well, Moshe talks to Pharoah and addresses him as "Pharoah" and not as "Honorable Pharoah" as would be necessary if that were the kings title.

This Waziri fellow must be Egypt's version of Donald Trump, and must head the Egyptian version of the "birther" movement. Next thing we know he will run for the position of President (or King) of Egypt..

Man sues God, case dismissed

A man filed a lawsuit against God in the Haifa courts. He was suing God for harassing him. He says he filed complaints against God with the police many times and in the past 3 years God has been acting much worse with him. He complained to the police many times and the police recommended he file for a restraining order against God.

The judge, an Arab judge named Ahsan Canaan, dismissed the case and suggested that the help this man needs is not the help of the court but of other professionals.

you can't make this stuff up.

I wonder if the judge was pressured by the defendant to throw out the case..

Trump Israel shouldn't 'pause' West Bank settlements (video)

it might be time to stop being so belligerent against Donald Trump, at least from an Israel perspective, and accept the fact that he will be the nominee and we need to remain on his good side, even if "just in case" he wins, and especially recognizing that he always has been a friend to Israel and we want him to remain one.

Why Are There Still Palestinian Refugees? (video)

It's been seven decades since the 1948 Arab-Israeli, and yet there are still an estimated 4 million Palestinian refugees...and zero Jewish refugees. With so many nearby Arab allies of the Palestinians, how did this happen? What does it say about Israel? What does it say about its Arab neighbors? Dumisani Washington, Diversity Outreach Coordinator for Christians United for Israel, explains.
