Ewhh..This is not good!!. Brings to mind a story my parents keep re-telling of a time long long gone. While in father (then) always in a rush, combined with his wired up hyper-ness which seemed to take the best of him..was taking the family (in a hurry of course) to the Airport to catch a plane to Lebanon. Half way to the airport my mother SCREAMS, "where is the baby"?.... The taxi driver somehow managed to make it back to the Hotel in the midst of a pandemonium chaos. Lucky, I was not kidnapped during that time-lag. But then what if ???..I won't be sitting here banging on Filipe's head, would I..!!

On every Middle East blog page it seems either Filipe or the University Rector are insulting someone. Is this typical of Israeli culture? Or are Filipe and University Rector radicals who are an embarrassment to Israeli culture?

Is CNN censoring the blogs as well as the main stream news too? We notice that all articles that could be exposing Israeli war crimes and genocide have suddenly disappeared from this "middle East Blog". This reminds one of living under Martial Law in the darkest days of Soviet rule. Perhaps that is why CNN is known by the names of "CIA News Network" and "Censored News Network" . An American Tragedy......
