(LONDON) - Jewish stateThere is a thought that has been brewing in my head since the latest massacre in Gaza and what followed. How to define a relationship between two peoples who live on the same piece of land but are, in terms of cultural, religious and political affiliations, oceans apart.

In this article I shall try to define the relationship between religion, race and democracy in Palestine. In particular when it comes to the relationship and sense of entitlement that many Zionist Jews have with Palestine.

EBOLA! EBOLA! EBOLA!

Exclusive interview with Dr. Phil Leveque, Forensic Toxicologist and Pharmacologist, on the Ebola Epidemic.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - It spreads very easily. An infected person doesn't need to touch you, or have you touch them; nor sneeze on you, or have sex with you.

Yes, their sweat evaporating into the air around them is infected, and contagious.

Because of the virulence of this stuff, it doesn't act like measles or small pox or anything like that, something far, far worse. You can’t say that this is from person-to-person contact; it’s just not possible that it can be that way.
