Lilac Sigan

Picture not perfect

Mahmoud Abbas's historical portrait is a fake.

Osama thought he was the good guy

Osama Bin Laden's death is a time to sharpen our choices about which side we are on.

Let's admit the truth: We're afraid

Reporting wrongdoings in open democracies like Israel takes rather less courage than doing the same in, say, Syria.

Goldstone's surprise

It seems that the UN and then Goldstone were the ones who should be accused of shooting first, and asking the questions later.

Human wrongs

Until today, Libya was part of the UN Human Rights council, meaning 155 countries thought Libya was eligible for the job.

Hopelessly lost in translation

What do things like the proposed UN Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlement building really mean?

How I'd love to live in Tom Friedman's flat world

Sadly, I have to live in the real one.

It's easy for killers to lie

Its called terror, and there are countries that are run by it, every day. While pretending to be an elected government, they are run by terror movements, who become stronger and richer while waiting for the right opportunity to show everyone who the real boss is.

When rockets fall and no one cares

Media reports which only show Israeli retaliation to the rockets that have been shot at its civilians, make it look like Israels actions came for no real reason. As if they were just someones whim.

Too bad it doesn't pay to be a nice guy

It seems like the world is letting Turkey off easy instead of pushing it to do the right thing.

The sheer luck of the bad guys

What has this anarchistic figure, Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, done for us?

Brain freeze

If you were in Abbas's shoes, tell the truth: who would you rather confront Israel, the democracy that is almost always willing to negotiate, or barbaric terrorists?

We're one, but we're not the same

The invitation to Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to visit Gaza can only be to foment terror - the world's problem, not just Israel's.
