Some good news out of Israel, that gave me an unintentional chuckle:

Israel's Supreme Court ordered the government to allot funds to classes for Reform Jewish conversions, in a small step toward recognition of the liberal stream of Judaism.

The ruling Tuesday followed a petition by the Israel Reform Movement, a liberal branch of Judaism that has long been engrossed in a power struggle with the Orthodox in Israel... "This ruling is a strong statement that there's more than one way to be Jewish and more than one path to Judaism," said Anat Hoffman, executive director of the Israel Religious Action Center, the legal arm of the Israel Reform Movement.

Yes, that's right, the legal arm of the Reform Movement in Israel is called IRAC. I had totally forgotten about that. You'd think sometime around 1991 they'd have changed the name.

The Muslim "separatists" in the Phillipines are called MILF.

If I may paraphrase: Why should they have to change their name? Iraq is the one who sucks.
