Lecturer bans use of Jewish phrase
Exam proctors instructed not to write ‘Besiyata Dishmaya’ on board, igniting anger among students
A lecturer at Israel’s largest public college stirred controversy Wednesday after instructing proctors not to write a common religious phrase on a class board during an exam.
The instructions were made public after a student photographed and uploaded to the Internet an envelope apparently containing exams for a politics course at Sapir College near Sderot, on which “Please do not write BS”D on the board” was handwritten.
BS”D, an acronym for the Aramaic phrase meaning “with the help of heaven,” is traditionally written by practicing Jews at the top of every written document.
I’m betting the perp will already be on a watch list in Denmark.

Locals will have limits set on the size of their farms under the proposals.

Nigeria troops repel Boko Haram attack on city of Gombe (BBC, Feb 14, 2015)
“Nigerian troops have repelled a Boko Haram attack on the north-east city of Gombe, officials say.
Soldiers and a fighter jet were used in a counter-attack after Islamist fighters overran a checkpoint on the edge of the city.
The insurgents were retreating towards their stronghold in the neighbouring state of Borno, witnesses said.
Nigeria postponed elections due to be held on Saturday due to the insurgency in the north-east.
Before they left, the militants scattered leaflets urging people not to vote in the elections.
All roads in and out of Gombe have been blocked and a 24-hour curfew imposed, reports the BBC’s Abdullahi Kaura Abubakar in Abuja.
Gombe – capital of Gombe State – has previously suffered suicide attacks but correspondents say this was the first time Boko Haram launched a direct assault on the city.
Reports said militants first attacked the town of Dadin Kowa, about 40km (25 miles) from Gombe.
Ground troops with air support then battled to keep the insurgents from entering the city, as residents fled into the bush and nearby hills.

“An Iraqi tribal leader said Saturday that ISIS militants are gaining ground in Anbar province, predicting a “collapse within hours” of Iraqi army forces there if tribal forces withdraw.
Sheikh Naim al-Gaoud, a Sunni Muslim leader of the Albu Nimr tribe, called for more U.S. intervention — including ground troops, arming tribes directly or at least pressuring the Iraqi government to give the tribes more firepower.
While U.S. officials have said that ISIS, which calls itself the Islamic State, is on the defensive in Iraq and Syria, al-Gaoud says that’s definitely not the case where he is.
“In Anbar, we are losing ground, not gaining,” he said.
Thousands of families had been under siege in the town of Jubbat al-Shamiya until getting help Friday from U.S.-led coalition airstrikes and Iraqi forces, according to al-Gaoud.
But he said Iraqi troops had pulled out of Jubbat al-Shamiya on Saturday, at which time ISIS was shelling the town.
If the Islamist extremist group’s fighters go in, al-Gaoud predicted a massacre….”
