  5. Hang in there. Hope you get better. I got Moderna too but got no side effects except for a sore arm. A couple of my friends also got Moderna and they were ok.
  6. From CBS: Israel’s government and Hamas agreed to a bilateral cease-fire on Thursday to halt nearly two weeks of fighting that has left hundreds dead and parts of the impoverished Gaza Strip reduced to rubble.

The truce comes after international diplomatic efforts and growing pressure from Israel's closest ally, the United States, to bring an end to the most intense con

  9. Well, the Liberals are not that much different when it comes to support for Israel. They are pretty pro Israel as well; perhaps not to the degree as the Tories but they know where the votes are too. The NDP are more pro Palestinian but they too have division within their party; when NDP members speak out against Israel they are reined in by Mr. Singh. The problem is political parties do a balancing act when it comes to criticizing Israel or be called Anti-Semitic. And just look at the US, the Democrats and Republicans fall over themselves in supporting Isra

  11. I think this conflict is more about power and control than religion. Ie. Who has control over land has the upper hand. That is why some people are being kicked out of Jerusalem and are fighting back.
