Bridging the GAP one display at a time

“A picture is worth 1000 words.” This has been said so many times that it has practically become a cliché.

The dead hand of the ‘old’ Soviet Union

Those quotation marks in the headline are not a mistake. But the overuse of the word enclosed in them is a mistake, and not a small one. “Old” things are not gone or dead; they are still around or alive. Why does no one refer to the Nazi regime as the ... [Published Desert Dispatch - Mar 26 2014]

Quotes

...As a consequence, Israel is not only opposed by foes, but by so-called friends. This is somewhat akin to the Pogo position: "I have seen the enemy and it is us."
Several decades ago the distinguished sociologist Daniel Bell wrote: "The real problem of [American] modernity is the problem of belief. To use an unfashionable term, it is a spiritual crisis, since the anchorages have proven illusory and old ones have become submerged. It is a situation which brings us back to nihilism, lacking a past or a future, there is only the void."
