Jon Stewart: GOP Should Be Paying News Corp

Bias in the media is something I’m coming to just accept as a fact of life.

Jon Stewart vs. Dick Armey: Comedian Wins Again

Thank you to Stand With Us’ Once in a Lifetime project for making this trip possible! Yesterday was a more relaxed day. We had a lot of free time, some of which I used to briefly talk with Noam Shalit, the father of the Israeli soldier kidnapped by Hamas who is still held today. His [...]

Mauro in Israel Day 9: Palestinians Should Be Thankful For the “Apartheid Wall”
