, the use of articulated buses - commonly called ''long buses'' - is widespread, particularly in Gush Dan and Jerusalem, the two great urban centers (urban area) of the country. The long buses are considered reliable and useful, and have been in service in Israel since the mid-1970s. During the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, such buses were often targeted by Palestinian terrorists (terrorism) and suicide bombers during rush hours, since a crowded long bus can contain more than 100 passengers. Due to the al-Aqsa Intifada wave of mass bombings, security measures were enforced and today many long buses in Israel are accompanied by a security guard. Additionally, President George W. Bush appointed Foxman to serve on the Honorary Delegation to accompany him to Jerusalem for the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the State of Israel in May 2008.

Unless someone can explain why :Category:Political_parties_in_Palestine is no good because it's not a country, and yet :Category:Political_parties_in_the Palestinian National Authority, which also isn't a country, is ok, I'm going to move this to unresolved. And no, I'm not buying :Category:Palestinian_political_parties is ok either, unless a different parent category is found instead of :Category:Political parties by country. If it's "by country", one can assume that "Palestinian" refers to a country, and as it's been pointed out here, it's not. -Kbdank71 (User:Kbdank71) 18:29, 5 Apr 2005 (UTC) ::I'll rephrase: :Category:Political_parties_in_Palestine is no good not because Palestine is not a country, but because Palestine is something else, namely, a historical geographical region, currently containing the state of Israel, as well as the territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip (and perhaps parts of neighboring countries). So :Category:Political parties in Palestine should, in principal, include political parties in Israel, such as the Likud. However, categorizing modern-day political parties by historical geographical regions is silly. It makes much more sense to categorize them by the political frameworks in which they operate. The relevant modern political framework in this case is the Palestinian National Authority. ::If one assumes that "Palestinian" refers to a country, then one is wrong. "Palestinian" does not refer to a (hypothetical) country named "Palestine" any more than "Jew" refers to a country named "Judea". :Category:Jewish political parties makes sense (there were such parties in some countries at some point in history), but it is certainly not the same as :Category:Political parties in Judea. -- uriber (User:Uriber) 20:39, 6 Apr 2005 (UTC) The largest and most populous Russophone country is Russia, from which the language originates. There are sizable Russophone communities in many neighbouring countries that were parts of the former Soviet Union, including Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Estonia and Latvia. Additionally, there are large Russophone immigrant communities in Israel and various parts of the United States, Canada and Australia. In 1872 Graetz went to Israel in the company of his friend Gottschalck Levy of Berlin, for the purpose of studying the scenes of the earliest period of Jewish history, which he treated in volumes one and two of his history, published in 1874-76; these volumes brought that great work to a close. While in Israel he gave the first impetus to the foundation of an orphan asylum there. He also took a great interest in the progress of the Alliance Israélite Universelle, and participated as a delegate in the convention assembled at Paris in 1878 in the interest of the Romanian Jews. Graetz's name was prominently mentioned in the anti-Semitic controversy, especially after Treitschke had published his "Ein Wort über Unser Judenthum" (1879–1880), in which the latter, referring to the eleventh volume of the history, accused Graetz of hatred of Christianity and of bias against the German people, quoting him as a proof that the Jews could never assimilate themselves to their surroundings. thumb Graetz's tomb in Old Jewish Cemetery in Wroclaw Jewish Cemetery in Wrocław (File:Grobowiec-HeinrichGraetz.jpg) Legacy Graetz's history became very popular and influential in its time. The material for Jewish history being so varied, the sources so scattered in the literatures of all nations, and the chronological sequence so often interrupted, made the presentation of this history as a whole a very difficult undertaking; and it can not be denied that Graetz performed his task with consummate skill, that he mastered most of the details while not losing sight of the whole. Another reason for the popularity of the work is its sympathetic treatment. This history of the Jews is not written by a cool observer, but by a warm-hearted Jew. On the other hand, some of these commendable features are at the same time shortcomings. The impossibility of mastering all the details made Graetz inaccurate in many instances. A certain imaginative faculty, which so markedly assisted him in his textual emendations of the Bible, led him to make a great number of purely arbitrary statements. Typical in this respect is the introductory statement in the first volume: "On a bright morning in spring nomadic tribes penetrated into Israel," while the Bible, which is his only source, states neither that it was in spring nor that it was on a bright morning. His passionate temper often carried him away, and because of this the eleventh volume is certainly marred. Graetz does not seem to possess the fairness necessary for a historian, who has to understand every movement as an outgrowth of given conditions, when he calls David Friedländer a "Flachkopf" (xi. 173) and "Moses Mendelssohn's ape" (ib. p. 130), or when he says of Samuel Holdheim that since the days of Paul of Tarsus Judaism never had such a bitter enemy (ib. p. 565). His preconceived opinions very often led him to conclusions which were not borne out and were even frequently disproved by the sources. His feelings often led him to make unwarranted attacks on Christianity which have given rise to very bitter complaints. He also showed extreme paranoia in his "conspiracy theories", such as a holiday gathering being the front for a plan to overturn the government, despite all evidence pointing to the meeting's innocence.All these short-comings, however, are outbalanced by the facts that the work of presenting the whole of Jewish history was undertaken, that it was executed in a readable form, and that the author enriched Jewish history by the discovery of many an important detail. Australia, Estonia, Faroe Islands, Fiji, France, Germany, Grenada, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Serbia and Samoa have all placed in Top 10 but never won a medal.
