Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

Israel is starting to import foreign workers to take over jobs once held by Palestinians - a development that was predicted here several weeks ago. The first batch will come primarily from Thailand. Link from Mid-East Truth.
In other Israel news, Mohammed Dahlan, best known as the most powerful military and political leader in the Gaza Strip, has been appointed as Arafat's new National Security Adviser. Isn't that just the dream job of all time? The PA is not a nation, it has no security, its President isn't a President and he doesn't take advice.
And while we're in the region, congratulations to Brazilian/Israeli blogger Renatinha on her aliyah. After sticking around just long enough to catch the World Cup victory parade, she should be arriving in Israel today.
