Bush did not so much as drop an olive on Mr. This is New York City.”) It gets me every time; we’re everywhere! In many religions there exists a tension between Scripture and Tradition. There are hundreds of dissidents in prison at this moment who dared to simply speak or write openly about Jewish ethnic intolerance.
