“Jerusalem is considered the capital of Palestine.” Kind of an odd sentence, absent attribution (considered by whom?), given that it’s currently the capital of Israel and is at the heart of the I-P dispute. Meanwhile, the status of the western part of Jerusalem isn’t in dispute, except to those who want the State of Read more

Would the article be written, and would the response differ, if she a different faith? I suspect so. I’m atheist and think it’s all nuts, but I find the different reactions just as crazy.
