British lawmakers on Monday overwhelmingly rejected [483 to 111] a motion to hold a national referendum on leaving the European Union, but Prime Minister David Cameron suffered a bruising as several Conservative Party lawmakers rebelled against his orders and supported the bid.
The revolt within the ruling Conservative Party ranks underscored discontent with Cameron's stewardship - an unhappiness that has grown following his handling of riots that gripped the nation in August and his decision to hire a suspect in Britain's phone-hacking scandal.

Israel's rabbinate must be stripped of its powers
For Israel's entire existence, the secular population has had to unwillingly accommodate the Chief Rabbinate's monopoly on matters relating to personal status.
