In Topic: Middle east violence

The most useful thing I have read or seen recently is a talk given by Miko Peled. He was born in Jerusalem in 1961 and is the son of a former Israeli Army general. In his hour long talk on You Tube he exposes many myths and lies about the history of the Middle East and particularly the post 1945 period and the creation of the state of Israel. It is called "An honest Jew tells the real truth about Israel" and is well worth watching to help outsiders get some idea of the major issues involved and who is really to blame for the current situation. He has also written a book called "The General's Son"

"Snuff Out The Moon. The development of floodlit rugby league"  by Tom Mather is an historical account of the development of floodlit rugby league. It's origins lie well before 1895. It starts with the game between Broughton and Swinton on 22nd October 1878. Two days later Chorley were due to play Swinton at Dole Park using all the equipment that had been brought over from Broughton but heavy rain earlier that day meant that the electricians were unable to get the equpment to work and everybody was literally left standing in the dark. A few weeks later Halifax played Birch and the crowd was estimated at around 20,000 although it was believed that half of them had  come to have their first look at electricity. Unfortunately the game only lasted ten minutes because the crowd steadily encroached onto the pitch making any further play impossible.
