In My Own Words:
I'm a 22 year old 'mature' (but still young) student who has recently returned to education to pursue Humanities (History, Theology, and English Literature) and Teaching. My intentions are to go onto university to do a BA in Jewish History or Israeli Studies with Hebrew.

I currently volunteer with local groups for those with depression, and I'm part of a befriending scheme; I'm passionate about … Read more

I'm interested in Middle Eastern studies, Jewish history and Semitic studies, politics and law of the Middle East.

Closer to home I'm interested in UK law and political philosophy, the European Union, cultural and national identity, World War II, Je… Read more

Terrorism and Hostage-Taking in the Middle East. by Walid Amin Ruwayha
The title may infer this book is a commentary of hostage taking in the Middle East in general, it is not. It is a one sided anti-Western, anti-Israeli, and in some cases I would propose outright anti-Semitic polemic. As stated on page 38, the aim "of this book [is to] clearly see how notably the U.S.A. and israel [sic] have picked up the British colonial spirit and methods." From thereon in, it descends into nothing more than an apologia for State Sponsored Terrorism of Arab Nations, and attack on the West and Wests alleged use, some of which cannot be correlated without wildly elaborate opinion which reads more like a conspiracy theory than a history. I am not against the anti-Western bias… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Immense scholarship., 7 Sep 2013
Having purchased this Jewish Study Bible during my introduction to Judaism I am very pleased with the scholarship and immensity of scripture and additional information within. I would only recommend purchasing the hardback, as I soon intend on doing, as the paperback becomes quickly worn out due to the lightweight paper used and heavy depth of the book causing havoc with the book spine. I'd also recommend purchasing a copy with English and Hebrew paralell text, whilst this volume is impressive it doesn't include the Hebrew text, due to its size for obvious reasons.

The only criticism aside, I'm most pleased and very impressed with this volume. In opening the book you are met by a… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm converted., 7 Sep 2013
I received 6 free samples outside my local train station as a Nescafé team promoted this alongside their Cappuccino, always a herbal tea drinker before (not including the occasional 'Caramelette' treat at my local coffeehouse) the marketing ploy has worked and I have been converted.

The aroma is a little weak but don't let that fool you, it has a deep smooth taste, easy on the palate and goes down a treat, and has none of the insipid and bitter aftertaste that put me off other coffee blends. It doesn't quite live up its claimed 'barista style' but I feel it is the closest you'll get during the morning rush. I enjoy this with demerara sugar and a little whole milk which… Read more
