Chosen by God or Allah....

"So long as the young generation is, and continues to be, well brought up, our ship of state will have a fair voyage; otherwise the consequences are better left unspoken."Plato

Not a bad idea. And of course those chosen by God or Allah are the best to define the "well" in this statement...

Aren’t they?

Dog breeding: a political incorrect job?

Any dog breeder can tell you that a breeding program will encourage certain behaviours or characteristics. However, the basis for these characteristics must be present to begin with and training will only optimize this behaviour or characteristics but not create it. Certain races are less or not at all useful for certain tasks no matter breeding or training.

The moral bankruptcy of Israel?

For years I’m irritated by the antisocial and arrogant attitude of many Israelis, looking at the world around them possessed by a sort of übermensch feeling. This part of the experiment called Israel has failed totally. Is it too late for a reveille?

Above and beyond criticism?

Whether by history, nurture or nature……different races have different attitudes, habits, morals etc. Probably politically incorrect to say this but not all these qualities are positive – Jews not excluded (not to mention Israelis). Must disapprobation of Jews immediately be classified as anti-Semitism or self-loathing?

Respiratory or mental disorder?

An orthodox friend of mine, seeking a match for his daughter asked me how fatal asthma can be. Raised in the best tradition, I countered his question with another: "Why do you want to know?"
Turns out, a boy from his list of potential matches was seen using an inhaler.
"So? How do you know it was for asthma?" I asked.
"Well…... he was seen puffing an inhaler……"
"Wouldn’t it be wise to ask the guy why he used the inhaler?"
"Actually, it’s not my problem anymore, he’s off my list...."
