    A year ago I went with four MPs to a spot of land south of Jerusalem. It lies on the lands of the neighbouring Palestinian village of Beit Safafa. Nearby is one of the mega-Israeli settlements, Gilo. To the south is Bethlehem, where the wall imprisons the city of the birthplace of Christ. To the east is Har Homa, one of the most recent of the Jerusalem-area settlements. It is a thicket of concrete, designed to separate Jerusalem from Bethlehem and indeed from the southern West Bank. But only months before, this plot of land had been designated for a new Israeli settlement, Givat HaMatos.

    Dear Mr. President, This past week a truly remarkable event transpired in the field of energy production that has gone completely unremarked in the mainstream media. This event was the independent verification of a device about the size of a ten inch piece of broom stick that over the course of 32 days produced a net energy out of 1.5 MWh, about the equivalent of burning a fifty gallon barrel of gasoline. The fuel was about 1 gram (half the weight of a penny) of a proprietary nickel powder that was not changed or added too during the test and was not completely consumed during the test. This…
