The letters of our thoughts are the ideas present in our mind before they come to realization . . . Thoughts that are, yet not felt . . . The words of the subconscious . . . of the soul . . .

Soccer Dad: Terror in Bat Ayin
"AP refers to Bat Ayin as a West Bank settlement. What's important to remember as part of Gush Etzion, (the Etzion bloc) Bat Ayin was occupied territory, from 1948 to 1967. It was purchased by Shmuel Yosef Holtzman in 1930 and acquired by force by Jordanian forces during Israel's War for Independence."

A Bochur in Lubavitch: Correction
". . . that this year's Birkas HaChama is only the third time in Jewish history that it occurs on Erev Pesach, and the first two were Yetzias Metzrayim and Purim.
That is incorrect [is a false rumor]"
Yetzias Metzrayim and Purim weren't even years of Birkas HaChama, and in the past 1500 or so years, this will actually be the 5th time it occurs on Erev Pesach.
What is interesting is that this is the last time ever, until Moshiach comes, that it will be Erev Pesach (this is true even if chas v'shalom moshiach doesn't come until the year 6000)" [i.e. based on the current mathematical calendar created by Hillel ben R' Yehudah, it will not occur again. When Moshiach comes, however, we will return to the observational calculations based on witness testimony, and Birkas Hachama can once more come out on Erev Pesach]

American Thinker: Obama bows down to Saudi King
See Miss Manners on the protocol. Americans do not bow to foreign monarchs because that act signified the monarch's power over his subject
