Here's Why You Need A Pastry Cloth In Your Kitchen

“I've never needed a pasty cloth or another useless food gadget to roll out a good pie crust. Just some some flour and rolling pin work fine.”

“No, I did not. But Israel is not the US. It doesn't have the massive Military we have, although you could argue, the Israeli Army is more effective that the U.S. Army.”

Teji Malik on Jun 1, 2014 at 11:50:28

“Mark: Now you are shunning away from the geography of these two matters. You have just proved my point and contradicted your previous statement. As Israeli IDF forces are more effective and as the Gaza territory that the Palestinians hold is very tiny, then according to their effectiveness it would have been much easier for them to get their soldier back, which they could not, as compared to the vast, difficult mountainous terrain between Pakistan and Afghanistan for our soldier.

You are good at evading things when asked which you have done with all my queries. If you feel so confident and secure in yourself about your "convictions", then you should be brave enough to confront them head on and admit when things are wronged. But sad to say, you hide behind some veil when you have to talk about the facts, which is a shame.

Come out of this bubble if you want to help the humankind which includes yourself and respond.

1. How many Israelis are rotting in Palestinian prisons as compared to the Palestinians in the Israeli jails and how many have been killed by each side?

I am sure you know the answer and please stop trying to play a shrink about cause and effect. Just bare numbers would suffice.”

“We have the most powerful military in the history of the world, but we can't seem to do the most simple things. Why let this soldier stay captive for five years? Oh, all our hardware can't help with this sort of problem, the most common type of problem we'll have in the future? Maybe we should rethink our total military approach, designed to kill Germans, Japanese, Warsaw Pact Armies, but ineffective in so many ways. Let's build another Aircraft Carrier Group, that'll solve a lot of problems.”

Teji Malik on May 31, 2014 at 19:06:01

“Mark: What a myopic thought process of yours! You forgot the Israeli soldier kept captive by Hamas for many years and we all know what kind of fire power and intelligence Israel has especially the latter in Gaza and West Bank, These things are not as simple as you pretend they should be.

I am glad our soldier is released and that's what matters rather than shallow questioning of nonsensical things with weird self concocted scenarios,”

“That's not the issue, I thought they uncovered new material, and the headline and article played it that way.”

“This is fairly new film - 4 years or so. There are numerous findings still, still research re D-Day. Most recently, PBS' airing of the ships, tanks which lay off the beach at Normandy, "Sunken Secrets." It really goes to the old, "The more you know." Along with learning about this 'new' film, a viewer finds out that Stevens, among many other great filmmakers, actually enlisted in the service. That service, you could say, changed the way these great filmmakers, artists, changed movies and brought the good, the bad of war to an audience. So, it doesn't matter that YOU knew the film existed, it matters that interest in history and history itself is always relevant.”

“The utter lowness of this attempt to calumn a candidate with something he is not responsible for, but must deal with, in fact a tragic medical condition speaks to desperation and lack of morality in those whose bedrock values are supposed to be truthiness. I feel sorry for the candidate, even if he is a Republican. Hope these people get some time at Parchment Farm (blues song) breaking rocks.”

“Once more Huffpost choses to post denigrating articles about teachers. How about articles about teachers who serve their students, who saved their students, who led their students together into the boxcars in Poland? How about the saints who spend their lives teaching?
