    Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon (Likud) has decided not to extend the seizure order issued last year against the Od Yosef Chai yeshiva (Torah academy - ed.) building in Yitzhar, in the heart of Samaria, according to Channel 10. For the first time in over a year, police and IDF forces will vacate the premises and allow students to return. The yeshiva was initially seized by Border Policemen in April 2014, following clashes between an extreme element in the community and security forces. The cyclical clashes began after a house was destroyed by the IDF, sparking tire-slashings of two IDF cars....

    JERUSALEM -- A New Jersey-born Israeli soldier who became the first to refuse to take part in Israel's evacuation of the Gaza Strip was motivated by his love for the land "given to the Jews by God," his father said Monday. Cpl. Avi Bieber, 19, was pulled away Sunday after he shouted support for settlers who were interfering with an army operation to destroy abandoned buildings in the Gaza Strip. His actions, and his father's comments Monday, underlined the ideological and religious chasm between camps of opposing Israelis over the August pullout. While many soldiers have said they will disobey...

    Civil war is national suicide AITON BIRNBAUM, THE JERUSALEM POST Jun. 29, 2005 As disengagement draws closer, some fear that growing tensions may erupt into armed conflict. Worst-case scenarios of disengagement, security chiefs warn, include assassination of the prime minister or other leaders and violent civil unrest . The more we positively discount such possibilities, the more likely it is that we are in denial. Civil war could threaten our very existence – the prospect of which, while naturally engendering avoidance of the topic, also demands overcoming anxiety in order to perform a realistic risk assessment. Clinicians evaluating suicidal clients...

    JERUSALEM – It has spread like a fierce contagion. People wear it. Billboards shout it. Kids distribute in on the streets. See it dangling from cars, buses, baby carriages, backpacks. It's the color orange and it is everywhere. As Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's plan to evacuate the Jewish communities of Gaza and parts of the West Bank on Aug. 15 draws closer, grassroots anti-withdrawal campaigns have geared up exponentially. With the color theme of orange, signifying the citrus groves that thrive in Jewish Gaza, the plan is to have as many Israelis as possible drape the country in orange to...

In the oceanic fantasy story, the young Nemo, a clown fish, is inadvertently captured in a fish collector's diving net and his father, Marlin, accompanied by an absent-minded Angel-fish friend named Dory, sets out on a quest to find his abducted son. At one point in their travels and trials, they are waylaid by a massive brute of a toothy Great White shark named Bruce and forcibly invited to a “get together.” Steered by the fins of the massive beast, they soon find...
