Israeli defense minister to visit U.S. Thursday

JERUSALEM,- Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon will leave for Washington Thursday for a meeting with U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Ya'alon's bureau said in a statement on Wednesday evening.

Ya'alon's trip comes on the heels of Hagel's first visit to Israel in April.

"The two are expected to discuss security, diplomatic and regional issues," the statement said.

The Israeli defense chief's agenda also includes meetings with U.S. lawmakers, leaders of Washington's Jewish community and senior officials of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

From Washington, Ya'alon will fly to Paris, where he will meet with his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and heads of France's defense industries. He will also inaugurate Israel's pavilion at the 50th Le Bourget Air Show set to begin in Paris next Monday.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
