No two-state solution

This is a response to the opinion piece “Settlements hurt chances for peace” (Jewish News, Nov. 18). I take the exact opposite view, i.e., not only do settlements not hurt the chances for peace, but indeed only Israeli annexation of all Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) guarantees, if not peace, at least Israeli security.

‘Strange Beauty’ rich in aural allure

These last several weeks have been tumultuous, to say the least. The upheaval on the political scene has caused me consternation, distress, woe, and, finally, (some) acceptance. We are going into uncharted waters. And when I’m feeling uneasy, I tend to retreat into the one consistently calming elixir that soothes my nerves and gives me the space for some self-reflection: jazz. It may seem like a peculiar remedy.
