The "T" word

Yesterday Free Beacon published an article titled Congressman: Jewish Settlers Are Like Termites.

Today Congressman Hank Johnson apologized for his Israeli settlement comments.

"J Street welcomes Congressman Hank Johnson's clarification regarding his remarks today about the Israeli settlement enterprise during a panel held outside the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. ...The Free Beacon and its headline writers have, as is their habit, taken irresponsible liberties with the words actually spoken in an effort to advance their political agenda.

The proper focus of media coverage here should be on the growing political opposition to Israeli settlement growth and not on the misrepresentations by an irresponsible media outlet." http://jstreet.org/blog/post/j-street-welcomes-rep-johnson-clarification-of-remarks-_1

A few years ago, the congressman apologized for using the "M" word. (midget)  The use of the "N" word is no longer socially acceptable, the use of the "M" word is no longer socially acceptable and now the use of the "T" word will no longer be socially acceptable. Should we ban all letters of the alphabet?

Ynet has an article titled Summer of Love: US Jews come to Israel looking for a partner.
The article focuses on three individuals seeking partners in Israel. I thought there were two errors in the article. At first, when I read about a new Israeli named Yehuda searching for his dream husband, I thought perhaps the name was Yehudis and not Yehuda. However, his name is indeed Yehuda. The article also features Shayna.
"Knowing that many Israeli men had served in the army gives her a sense of security, and that her favorite thing about Israeli men is their tendency to cease the moment."
My question is how do they cease the moment? How do they terminate it? Are they like termites who eat up the moment?
