Future First Ladies & Third Husbands

JOHN Edwards’ wife has incurable cancer, Hillary Clinton’s husband raised over $70,000 during a one hour visit to an Upper West Side gym but the two New York tabloids the New York Daily News  and New York Post  are consumed by the shocking discovery that Rudy Giuliani’s wife has been married three times!

Until now everyone thought that Rudy was husband number two. But in actual fact he is husband number three. How this will affect the nation if Rudy becomes president neither the News nor the Post made clear but it is undoubtedly worth splashing across the front page.

Meanwhile, Edwards vowed to continue his presidential campaign after his wife’s announcement that she had incurable cancer. Elizabeth Edwards was first diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of her husband’s failed 2004 campaign.

She successfully fought off that illness but doctors say the latest cancer spread to her rib and cannot be cured. It is however treatable and the couple remained upbeat yesterday.

Israeli Soldiers & Palestinians Look In The Mirror

The New York Times reports on a group of former Israeli combat soldiers and current reservists called Breaking the Silence that meets to discuss their behaviour at the country’s security checkpoints.

According to the Times report though most behave “within decent moral limits,” they are taught to be aggressive, with some humiliating or beating Palestinians to keep crowds in line.

At the recent talk and discussion session, one man stood and said Mr. Manekin [the director of Breaking the Silence] and his friends were hurting Israel, especially its image abroad, in order to salve their own consciences. Many in the audience nodded in agreement.

Tall and dignified, about 45, the man said that he, too, had served in the West Bank, “and I’m proud of what I did there to defend Israelis.”

“It is crucial to intimidate people at checkpoints to keep them cowed,” he said, his voice shaking a little, “because we are so few there, and they are so many.”

Then he said: “These people are not like us! They come up to our faces and they lie to us!”
That was enough for Uriel Simon, 77 years old, a professor emeritus of biblical studies at Bar-Ilan University and a noted religious dove.
