Full color? I'm almost afraid to ask what illustrations it has. I'd like to think it includes a clearly delineated map showing the way to y'all's secret extinct-volcano hideout, but I've been disappointed so, so many times already....
Without the location of the volcano, the map is useless.

(This is the volcano that awakens from dormancy during the Battle of Armaggedon, isn't it?)
Hence the specification "clearly delineated." The (((people))) who actually attend meetings in this volcano hideout obviously know where it is -- the question is, when will the rest of humanity be allowed to share this knowledge?

There's no map in this document, though. Color me disappointed, not surprised.

Better than that flyer we found in Alexandria?
I would say it's better in the sense that it really connects the Jews to absolutely everything, except that that flyer emphasized the Jews controlled the Sun and planetary activity a little more.

Trump has been making noises about arranging a peace accord between the Israelis and Palestinians.

If Trump could pull that deal off, I might actually say something nice about him.

The Israeli right despised Obama and openly supported Trump because they thought he would give them a free pass. Then, like most presidents in their last term, he decided that solving I-P would be a legacy burnishing accomplishment, so he's been making kissy faces at Abbas and telling Bibi to slow his roll on settlements. Due to political realities, no Israeli admin can give the bird to both political parties.

Nothing can possibly go wrong declaring yourself an ethno-religious state to the exclusion of a sizable national minority. Also, how do you amend a Constitution 62-55?

This story is kind of weird:
Lara Alqasem, a 22-year-old of Palestinian heritage from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, arrived in Israel on a student visa to attend Jerusalem's Hebrew University but never made it out of the airport after she was found to have ties to the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, better known as BDS, her lawyer, Leora Bechor, said.
...
The ministry added that Alqasem is free to return to the United States anytime. Bechor said her client still hopes to attend the university
So...she's active in the Boycott Israel movement but wants to attend college there? It doesn't seem like Israel is mistaken about her involvement, exactly; did they think she was going to cause trouble while in Israel? Or (my suspicion) did she go to Israel knowing that they weren't going to let her in, just so she could get publicity about it?

A lot of college students are unclear about the meanings of words. I recently had a student ask me to confirm that the phrase "sum of all the residuals" means that we add up all of the residuals. (This was in a data analysis assignment.) He is a physics major who needed confirmation that computing a "sum" means that you add things.

So maybe she thinks a boycott involves boys and cheap sleeping arrangements.

In these situations, my default assumption is that the person is clueless.

I'd assume this was a presumption of what happened due to being in bds and Palestinian and all that. It worked in terms of attention.

She claimed that she never participated in boycott campaigns in the past. So it was because she was part of a group that advocated for BDS. Not that the latter is dispositive of anything as every has joined a group where they don’t agree with 100% of what they advocate.

Or you know she may've just joined a Palestinian Student Group group that had some BDS shit going on but that she was there for the falafel and learning more about fellow Palestinians, or even just had some friends who were part of it, and so she had 'ties' but no activism at all. I mean, it could be said that I have ties to the local pirate- and Klingon-enthusiast groups but I'm not into it beyond occasionally going to open bar parties with my friends who are into it.

Or you could join a local Palestinian group because you disagree with the current occupation and politics, but don’t think BDS is the right solution.

Haven’t conservatives been pushing the line that there was nothing wrong with opposing South Africa boycotts and opposing apartheid?

I assume we're skipping over the explanation that she's interested in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict so she wants to study in the area even if that means doing so on the "wrong" side (even while doing so may give her a fresh perspective) because it's not plot-twisty enough and the audience will never sit through 13 episodes.
