Isaac Herzog New Hope for Israeli and Palestinian Peace

herzog a
Yitzhak “Boujie” Herzog born 22 September 1960), known in English asIsaac Herzog, is an Israeli politician and lawyer. He is currently a member of the Knesset, chairman of the Labor Party and Leader of the Opposition. He has previously served as Minister of Welfare and Social Services, Minister of the Diaspora, Society, and the Fight Against Antisemitism, Minister of Housing and Construction, and Minister of Tourism.
Herzog was born in Tel Aviv, the son of Aura Herzog (née Ambache) and

General Chaim Herzog, who later became the sixth president of Israel, and the grandson of Rabbi Yitzhak HaLevi Herzog. His father was born in Ireland and

his mother was born in Ismailia, Egypt; their families were of Eastern European Jewish descent (from Poland, Russia, and Lithuania).
When his father was Permanent Representative of Israel to the United Nations for three years, Herzog lived in New York and attended the Ramaz School. In those following years, while also studying in high school, Herzog gained an advanced academic education at Cornell University and New York University.
When he returned to Israel at the end of 1978, he enlisted in the IDF and served as a major officer in Unit 8200 of the Intelligence Corps.
Herzog studied law at Tel Aviv University. He worked at a law firm founded by his father, Herzog, Fox & Ne’eman.
Herzog with wife Michal
Herzog is married to Michal and has three children. He resides in his childhood home in the Tzahala neighborhood of Tel Aviv.
Political career
Although he did not win a seat in the 1999 elections, Herzog served as government secretary in Ehud Barak’s cabinet until 2001 when Barak was defeated by Ariel Sharon in a special election for Prime Minister. In 1999, he was also investigated in the ‘Amutot Barak’ scandal (a scandal involving allegations that the party funding law was violated), but maintained his silence, similar to the American “pleading the 5th”. The Attorney General, therefore, decided to close the case against him due to lack of evidence. From 2000 until 2003, he served as chairman of the Israel Anti-Drug Authority.

Herzog won a seat in the 2003 election as a member of the Labor Party, and was appointed Minister of Housing and Building at his request when Labor joined Ariel Sharon’s coalition government on 10 January 2005. However, on 23 November 2005, he resigned from his cabinet post along with the rest of the party.

Prior to the 2006 elections, Herzog won second place on Labor’s list in the party’s primaries. He was initially appointed Minister of Tourism in Ehud Olmert’s Kadima-led coalition, but was reassigned to the Social Affairs ministry in March 2007 after Yisrael Beiteinu was awarded the Tourism Ministry following their late entry to the governing coalition, and was also appointed Minister of the Diaspora, Society and the Fight Against Antisemitism. He was again second on the party’s list for the 2009 elections. Following the election, he was appointed Minister of Welfare & Social Services and Minister of the Diaspora, Society, and the Fight Against Antisemitism. However, he resigned from the cabinet after Ehud Barak left the Labor Party to establish Independence in January 2011.

Herzog is chairman and whip of the Israeli-Australian Parliamentary Association. He is also one of the few Knesset members who still serves in the military reserve (with the rank of Major).
In 2011 Herzog was an unsuccessful candidate for the Labor Party leadership. He finished third in the primaries that year, after Shelly Yechimovich and Amir Peretz.
Leader of the Opposition
herzog 13 livni
On 22 November 2013 Herzog was elected leader of the Labor Party, defeating incumbent Shelly Yachimovich by 58.5% to 41.5%. In doing so, he became Leader of the Opposition. Whereas Yachimovich focused first on socioeconomic issues, Herzog prioritizes security and resolution of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict.
Herzog with Israeli Arabs
Ten days after the election, Herzog met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to pledge his support for the two-state solution.
Herzog has reportedly reached out to Shas leader Aryeh Deri to increase cooperation between the two opposition factions.

In June 2014, Herzog criticized PM Benjamin Netanyahu for failing to engage the international community, failing to present a proposal for peace with Palestinians, and failure to work effectively with the President of the United States, Barack Obama.
Mideast Israel Election Analysis

Herzog declared that Netanyahu’s “loathing and hostility for Barack Obama” was one of his greatest failures, since it put Israel’s security at risk.
With the governing coalition dissolving and new elections expected in March 2015, Herzog called on Hatnua and Kadima parties to join his Labor Party in forming a new coalition. In an interview with YNET, he stated, “I am capable of replacing Netanyahu. I will do everything in order to establish a bloc before the elections.”

Shortly thereafter, Herzog and Tzipi Livni, who was justice minister and is head of a centrist faction, announced they would campaign on a joint slate in the upcoming election in an effort to keep Netanyahu, leader of the LikudParty, from securing a fourth term as prime minister. The joint list is named Zionist Union.

Although Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party is traditionally viewed as more pro-business, leading industrialists say a government led by the Zionist Union opposition is unlikely to pursue an anti-business agenda.

And though a centre-left government may spend more on social and welfare issues, the potential benefits of a return to a peace process outweigh the risks, they say.

Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 2015

mg63 20

Mercedes-Benz has announced pricing information for the 2015 model year G63 AMG 6×6.
It seems there is enough demand to continue production for a second model year of the ultra-exclusive G63 AMG 6×6 as Mercedes-Benz has announced deliveries of the 2015MY will commence on September 1.
mg63 19
While the previous version had a starting price of 451,010 EUR (VAT included) in Germany, the modestly revised model is even more expensive, carrying an exorbitant price tag of 456,900 EUR.
mg63 1
For almost an additional 5,900 EUR the six-wheeled G-Class gets an extended list of standard equipment which now includes a heated windscreen as well as folded & heated exterior mirrors together with an auto-dimming rear view mirror.

The 3,850 kg (8,487 lbs) behemoth continues to have a twin-turbo V8 5.5-liter engine rated at 544 PS (400 kW) and 758 Nm (560 lb-ft) delivered to all six wheels via a 7G-TRONIC automatic gearbox.
mg63 4

mg63 5
Just like the 2014 model year, production of the 2015MY G63 AMG 6×6 will be capped at around 20-30 units.

mg63 16
Deliveries of the 2015 model will start on Sept. 1, and the truck is now open for orders–at least for those customers who can legally register them in their jurisdictions, which doesnot include the U.S. We got a chance to drive one of these trucks in the sands of Dubai last year, and we found it well suited for that sort of terrain.
mg63 6

mg63 7
This variant of the G-class entered limited production in 2013, powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 544 hp and 560 lb-ft.
mg63 8

mg63 9
These performance figures gave it a 0-60 time of around 7 seconds, according to Mercedes-Benz, with all that power being channeled to the all-wheel-drive powertrain via a seven-speed automatic transmission. Spun off from a military version built for the Australian armed forces, the G63 AMG 6×6 has been stuffed with all the luxury trimmings of the standard-wheelbase 4×4 G63, in addition to receiving high profile all-terrain tires, a thoroughly reworked suspension and a cargo bed that’s probably too nice to put anything in.
mg63 12

mg63 13

mg63 14
Specially modified G-class vehicles including stretched versions by BINZ, Friederichs, and Transeco Bremen are not that uncommon in Europe, though their modifications serve specific needs, mostly related to security.

Sometimes automakers go absolutely bonkers and bequeath a product on the world that makes no logical sense – except to make people grin from ear to ear. The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 is just such a vehicle with six wheels, three axles, five differentials and a 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 making 536 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque.
mg63 10

mg63  3

mg63 11
The result is a truck that looks more appropriate to handle the dystopian future rather than any paved road on Earth, especially the $1.35 million armored version. Unfortunately, if you have a hankering to own a brand-new example, it’s too late because Mercedes is ending production of the behemoth.
mg63 15
mg63 18
Since introducing the 6X6 in 2013, Mercedes actually sold more than it originally anticipated by moving more than 100 of them, according to GT Spirit, but the German automaker has ended production to keep the model special. Still, those production numbers aren’t too shabby considering the truck’s ultra-niche nature and base price of 379,000 euros ($430,000 at current exchange rates).

While wealthy clients who desire luxury with their off-roading can no longer order the 6X6, Mercedes isn’t entirely abandoning these customers yet. The company is already previewing the G500 4×4² that takes the six-wheeler’s pumped up suspension and wheels but reinterprets the look on the more conventional, two-axle body style. Buyers might have to accept a naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V8, though. A debut for the new model is expected for the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in early March.

Sex reassignment surgery (male-to-female)

reas a

Sex reassignment surgery for male-to-female involves reshaping the male genitalsinto a form with the appearance of, and, as far as possible, the function of female genitalia. Prior to any surgeries, patients usually undergo hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and, depending on the age at which HRT begins, facial hair removal. There are associated surgeries patients may elect to, including facial feminization surgery, breast augmentation, and various other procedures.
Lili Elbe was the first known recipient of male-to-female sex reassignment surgery, in Germany in 1930. She was the subject of five surgeries: one of penectomy andorchiectomy, one intended to transplant ovaries, two to remove the ovaries aftertransplant rejection, and vaginoplasty. However, she died three months after her fifth operation.

Christine Jørgensen was likely the most famous recipient of sex reassignment surgery, having her surgery done in Denmark in late 1952 and being outed right afterwards. She was a strong advocate for the rights of transgender people.
reas 9 Christine
Christine Jørgensen
Another famous person to undergo male-to-female sex reassignment surgery was Renée Richards. She transitioned and had surgery in the mid-1970s, and successfully fought to have transgender people recognized in their new sex.
The first male-to-female surgeries in the United States took place in 1966 at the Johns Hopkins University Medical Center. The first physician who performed sex reassignment surgeries in the United States was the late Dr. Elmer Belt. He stopped doing these surgeries in the late sixties.
Genital surgery
reas 2
When changing anatomical sex from male to female, the testicles are removed, and the skin of foreskin and penis is usually inverted, as a flap preserving blood and nerve supplies (a technique pioneered by Sir Harold Gillies in 1951), to form a fully sensitive vagina (vaginoplasty). A clitoris fully supplied with nerve endings (innervated) can be formed from part of the glans of the penis. If the patient has been circumcised (removal of the foreskin), or if the surgeon’s technique uses more skin in the formation of the labia minora, the pubic hair follicles are removed from some of the scrotal tissue, which is then incorporated by the surgeon within the vagina. Other scrotal tissue forms the labia majora.
In extreme cases of shortage of skin, or when a vaginoplasty has failed, a vaginal lining can be created from skin grafts from the thighs or hips, or a section of colon may be grafted in (colovaginoplasty). These linings may not provide the same sensate qualities as results from the penile inversion method, but the vaginal opening is identical, and the degree of sensation is approximately the same as that of most biological women, so pleasure should not be less.
reas 6
Surgeon’s requirements, procedures, and recommendations in the days before and after, and the months following, these procedures vary enormously.
Plastic surgery, since it involves skin, is never an exact procedure, and cosmetic refining to the outer vulva is sometimes required. Some surgeons prefer to do most of the crafting of the outer vulva as a second surgery, when other tissues, blood and nerve supplies have recovered from the first surgery. This relatively minor surgery, which is usually performed only under local anaesthetic, is called labiaplasty.
The aesthetic, sensational, and functional results of vaginoplasty vary greatly. Surgeons vary considerably in their techniques and skills, patients’ skin varies in elasticity and healing ability (which is especially affected by smoking), any previous surgery in the area can impact results, and surgery can be complicated by problems such as infections, blood loss, or nerve damage.

Supporters of colovaginoplasty state that this method is better than use of skin grafts for the reason that colon is already mucosal, where as skin is not. However, many post-op trans women report that the skin used to line their vaginas develops mucosal qualities from months to years post-op. For others, lubrication is needed when having sex and occasional douching is advised so that bacteria does not start to grow and give off odors.
Because the human body treats the new vagina as a wound, any current technique of vaginoplasty requires some long-term maintenance of volume (vaginal dilation), by the patient, using medical graduated dilators, dildos, or suitable substitutes, to keep the vagina open. Sexual intercourse is not an adequate method of performing dilation.
reas 5
Regular application of estrogen into the vagina, for which there are several standard products, may help, but this must be calculated into total estrogen dose. Some surgeons have techniques to ensure continued depth, but extended periods without dilation will still often result in reduced diameter (vaginal stenosis) to some degree, which would require stretching again, either gradually, or, in extreme cases, under anaesthetic.
With current procedures, trans women do not have ovaries or uteri. This means that they are unable to bear children ormenstruate, and that they will need to remain on hormone therapy after their surgery to maintain female hormonal status.
Other related procedures

Facial feminization surgery

Occasionally these basic procedures are complemented further with feminizing cosmetic surgeries or procedures that modify bone or cartilage structures, typically in the jaw, brow, forehead, nose and cheek areas. These are known as facial feminization surgery or FFS.
Breast augmentation
reas 4
Breast augmentation is the enlargement of the breasts. Some trans women choose to undergo this procedure if hormone therapy does not yield satisfactory results. Usually, typical growth for trans women is one to two cup sizes below closely related females such as the mother or sisters. Estrogen is responsible for fat distribution to the breasts, hips and buttocks, while progesterone is responsible for developing the actual milk glands. Progesterone also rounds out the breast to an adult tanner stage 5 shape and matures and darkens the areola.
Voice feminization surgery

Some MTF individuals may elect to have voice surgery, altering the range or pitch of the person’s vocal cords. However, this procedure carries the risk of impairing a trans woman’s voice forever, as happened to transsexual economist and author Deirdre McCloskey. Because estrogens by themselves are not able to alter a person’s voice range or pitch, some people proceed to seek treatment. Other options are available to people wishing to speak in a less masculine tone. Voice feminization lessons are available to train trans women to practice feminization of their speech.
Tracheal shave
Tracheal shave is also sometimes used to reduce the cartilage
reas 10 trachea-shave-jane-doe-patricia1
in the area of the throat to conform to more feminine dimensions, to greatly reduce the appearance of an Adam’s apple.
Buttock augmentation
Because male hips and buttocks are generally smaller than those of a female, some MTF individuals will choose to undergobuttock augmentation. If, however, efficient hormone therapy is conducted before the patient is past puberty, the pelvis will broaden slightly, and even if the patient is past their teen years, a layer of subcutaneous fat will be distributed over the body rounding contours.

Trans women usually end up with a waist to hip ratio of around 0.8, and if estrogen is administered at a young enough age “before the bone plates close”, some trans women may achieve a waist to hip ratio of 0.7 or lower. The pubescent pelvis will broaden under estrogen therapy even if the skeleton is physically male.

This male rapper in Burkina Faso is trying to help stop female genital mutilation

Many of us can be sqeamish when it comes to discussions about women’s sexual health. There’s one topic I always have trouble talking about: The practice of FGM, female genital mutilation, or excision.

Smockey copy (1)
Serge Bambara is a hip hop artist, actor and political activist from Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. Born in what was then the Republic of Upper Volta, the son of a Bissa father and a French mother, he moved to France to study in 1991.

Of course it’s hard to discuss. We’re talking about women in many parts of the world who, at a young age, have the most sensitive parts of their sex organs removed — and their mothers and fathers allow it. In some cultures, it’s a tradition.

But a rapper from Burkina Faso, in West Africa, is trying to break the stigma of talking about FGM.

Smockey is a rapper who lives in the capital city of Ouagadougou and he’s trying to make strides in the fight against FGM with his latest song, “Tomber la Lame,” or “Drop the Blade.”

Each time her sex is butchered with the pretext of purity…

…three million of our sisters face this violence each year…

“Some women told me that when they listen to that song, they start crying because it’s a sad song,” he says.
smockey 2-rfi
His own family has plenty of experience in fighting FGM. “My wife is also very [skeptical] about this practice,” Smockey says. When she refused to undergo it herself, she was kicked out of her house.

But he also thinks it’s important for men to act, as well as women. “Men [are] not obliged to talk about this stuff, you know?” Smockey says. “It’s more comfortable for us to shut our mouth, [but] I think it’s better that a man is talking about [it]. … It’s a female fight, but we have [to have] the respect to denounce it, because we are part of this humanity.”
