A Jewish couple are suing neighbours over motion sensors that turn on the lights in their communal stairwell, which they claim make it impossible for them to leave their flat during the sabbath.HAMAS should install these lights all over Palestine, use them as vampire repelling agents, like holy water, especially in the West Bank Settlements to repel them all back to Israel.
Like many Orthodox Jews, Dena and Gordon Coleman will not use electricity between sundown on Friday and Saturday night, which they regard as a day of rest. But since the sensors were installed at Embassy Court in Bournemouth, the lights come on as soon as the Colemans set foot outside their front door — which they say makes them responsible for switching them on and therefore prohibits them from leaving the building.
The couple are suing their neighbours, saying that their human rights are being breached. If their claim is successful, the owners of the 35 flats in the seafront building will be liable to pay the couple’s costs as well as any damages. link

'Kosher' search engine launched in IsraelWell, I can see why they went with the “K” for Kosher, rather than the “J” for Jewish, otherwise it would have been called “Joogle” instead of “Koogle”
A new "kosher" search engine called Koogle has been launched for orthodox Jews living in Israel, allowing them to surf the net without compromising the religious standards set by their rabbis
I wonder if Google will make one for Muslims, if so then will it be called “Moogle”?? And one for Born Again Christians, would that be called “Coogle”? And what about Hindus? Would that be “Hoogle”?And then there’s the scientologists, would theirs be called “Soogle”? And Buddhism would be “Boogle” then there is Taoism which would be “Toogle” Oh, and we can’t forget about all the Wiccans and Pagans, would there’s be called “Woogle” and "Poogle" respectively?
Sorry, couldn't’t resist the humour factor.
