Personal musings on Israel, Jewish matters, history and how they all affect each other
here is a riveting tale about the river which I read some years ago and from which I remember vividly how one little correction demands the next and the next and the next and all the while the system becoming more and more complicated and harder to keep in check. On the other hand if you let nature do as she likes how do you secure the operation of big industrial plants let alone cities. It is either back to a life in tents or cope with the dilemmata as best one can.http://www.newyorker.com/archive/1987/02/23/1987_02_23_039_TNY_CARDS_000347146

Whether quick info and then correction is the better PR who knows. I personally prefer the IDF style, when they say something it is the final word.http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,763937,00.html#ref=nlintGerman Soldiers Fired Deliberately at ProtestersUntil now, the Bundeswehr had denied any responsibility for the deaths of at least four demonstrators outside the camp's gates. On Wednesday evening, the Bundeswehr's website still said that the military had "no evidence" that attackers had been shot and killed by German soldiers. In several interviews, German Defense Minister Thomas de Maizière had previously only said that he wanted to wait for the results of an investigation before making any concrete statements on the events.Especially remarkable in the piece
