Peres says Abbas a ‘true partner for peace’ ahead of PA leader’s meeting with Obama

Although negotiations are tough, President Shimon Peres of Israel publically stated that Palestinian President Abbas is indeed a partner for peace. Peres stated that Abbas is against terror and violence, which is obviously positive in trying to reach an agreement. The disagreements between both sides are inevitable, but the fact that both want peace serves as hope that someday it may be reached.
Israeli reality TV star given choice: Either quit acting, or no conversion to Judaism
Many of you have probably seen the show Big Brother. Well, in Israel, a T.V. show just like it is seen. Alin Levy is a 24-year-old Ukrainian woman who forms part of the cast of the show. She moved to Israel when she was only 4, and was in the process of converting to Judaism. The orthodox rabbinate with which she was doing the conversion told her that she could not continue her acting carrier if she wished to convert. She decided to quit the conversion process and continue acting. I think it is hypocritical to discriminate the way many do, but get defensive when the same is done to us.
