Step-by-Step: Making Aliyah to Israel

Documenting the very personal process of making Aliyah (immigration to Israel) by one very atypical Israeli-American girl. Aliyah on 17, August, 2005. Roadmap: What do you mean there's no roadmap?! Hang on, we're in for a bumpy ride! Ole!

Peaceful ?!? protest

I have to say I find this rather funny. There was a protest calling for peace in Lebanon held in Australia by approximately 200 not-so-peaceful "peace-loving" individuals:

Mr Howard was leaving the WA Liberal Party state conference when about 200 protesters, many of whom were waving Lebanese flags and shouting "we want peace'', mobbed his vehicle.

Protesters punched, kicked and threw projectiles at Mr Howard's car as police struggled to keep them at bay.

Hmmm sounds to me more like you wanted to kick and punch some things folks. Not sure how wanting peace and yelling for peace while at the same time violently attacking a government minister go together...
