Mossad’s hiring of a Nazi killer can teach us how to deal with Isil

The appointment of a man who specifically facilitated the mass murder of tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews in 1944 to help secure the world’s only Jewish state will not sit easy with some. But who better than your vilest enemy to do your dirty work?

Young women writers

Women are nails. I don’t need to tell you this. We bleed once a month and continue as if everything is normal – despite a piece of us painfully and inelegantly shedding itself from our aching bodies while we sit nonchalantly in offices and classrooms. We are trained to cope with this painful ritual from our early teens. Male friends and colleagues can’t even hear the word ‘period’ without… → Read More

Paris attacks: Isil's female 'warriors' are blowing themselves up so they can be oppressed

Since last Friday, men have dominated proceedings. It was men brandishing Kalashnikovs shouting “Allah” as they gunned down innocent music fans in the Bataclan theatre.
