Marching On

As the Israel Day Parade approaches in NYC, there is a lot of neck hair standing regarding the inclusion of groups that support the Boycott of Israel, better known as BDS, Boycott, Divest and Sanction. The “ BDSer’s” are moderates in a number of instances, a major group that will be marching, the New Israel Fund supports groups that are actively involved in actions that cause harm to Jewish citizens of Israel and there are groups that straight out would like to see Israel cease to exist as a Jewish State, all of course in the name of “Humanity” and to better the world. 

I have not listed the all the groups here because the problematic issue that I see cropping up is not the inclusion, rather the reaction of the people who are against them.  Calls to pull funding from the UJA, not support the parade, not participate and so on.

I have watched throughout the years as the common reaction among our people outside of Israel is to back away, and in essence back down from the threat.  That being said, I have seen, and continue to see the few heroes who act to make a change, and stand up for our people and country.  But for the majority, it is always the same nice letters written expressing “dismay and emotional distress”… “nebuch” as they say.

Often the result of pulling out is that we leave our fellow Jews to be the victims of these nefarious groups, open to their lies and poison… also resulting in even more separation of our already tiny people.

Obviously, money talks, and usually any organization that is based on fund raising like the UJA will react to the possibility of losing needed funds.  But here is a secret, its not all about money. 

The Israel Day Parade is about Israel, and those groups that are supporting sanctions against Israel are our enemies, their very actions work to remove the only Jewish State that exists in the world, even many of their original supporters have backed away after realizing that their real mission is to destroy Israel.

Unfortunately, they have managed to disguise themselves quite well, indeed, they are the shining beacon of humanity, the great hope for a better future, they have fooled a majority of our own people into not only backing them, but are working feverishly to turn them further against the State of Israel in our continuing challenge to exist here in a sea of nasty folk.

I witnessed this personally in the last AIPAC Conference in DC as I asked various supporters of said groups if they were aware as to the actions of these people and what their funds actually go to?  Needless to say, that most, were quite upset, and had no idea regarding the true nature of these “Champions of the Jewish people”.

So, I would like to suggest a different methodology in dealing with the Israel Day Parade, how about instead of just backing away, and backing down, do the opposite… stand up to the challenge, stand up to the groups, make them feel unwelcome.  Put up signs and banners showing just who they are and what they are really doing.  Educate the people standing next to you.  Do not leave those of our people who are not aware, or ignorant, to lie there as victims to our enemies.

Even though we may not show it in the best light to the Jews living in the diaspora, we in Israel still do fight against our enemies, we still have the “stuff”, and make more of it everyday.  Sure we put out a few rotten apples, too may, but we still have the best gig in town when it comes to Jewish Strength, and will continue to do so.

Again, I would like to suggest a different course of action, make our voices louder than the enemies, force the UJA and JCRC’s to wake up, but attend, attend, attend and show the world that we are strong, and in a strange way, even united.  Remember, United we Stand, Divided we fall?, True stuff.  This year, lets show them an even stronger people devoted to our land and our people and lets show them that we are here to stay.. and if they don't like it, well, we’re ready for that too.

(I must add that this article was not written to detract from any of the other efforts being made to fight the inclusion of these Anti-Israel groups.  I applaud them and fully support them.  I solely wish that more efforts are made to stop this continued virus of these groups, and that we must use as many legal means as possible to achieve that goal.)

Seeking the True

A classic example of the efforts being made by mainstream Jewish organizations to further create a wedge in our little Jewish world was the Jewish funded and sponsored trip last week by the wonderfully enlighten Harvard group to the grave of Arafat, the father of modern day terror and murder.  I would love to say that this outing was unique, one of the kind, rogue, but I can't. These efforts are being made daily by a Jewish leadership that has had their souls kidnapped by enemies of our people.  Flying the flag of humanity and open minds, claiming to be the Liberal camp of the day, these crusaders have been setting out to "save our people", the "Tikun Olam", and to purge us from the demons within us... As they perceive it of course.

I'm not going to use the term self-haters to describe these poor souls because I honestly don't believe they hate themselves or our religion.   The are being taught to hate people and perceived groups who they feel are dangerous to their way of living, threats to their being.  Indeed their pent up frustrations at their own lac kings of an identity are being directed away from those who seek their demise to those who would only strengthen them and connect them better to their heritage.  Stockholm syndrome? Sure, fact is that these kids were sent to embrace the same people who would dance on their graves.  Of course, in the name of intellectual and progressive thought.  I especially enjoyed the "apologies" written by the backers.  They apologized because they were caught.

A few weeks ago I was asked about where I live, in Shilo, and Judea and Samaria...why should I live there, what right do I have... You know, I was being "grilled" (and loving it, I might add). Besides discussing recent history, I of course mentioned our history there, our presence, the importance of the place in our peoples history in the land.... Pretty much the standard.  What was said next will stick with me and was profound, as it clearly represents a prevalent mindset in Diaspora Mainstream Judaism.
"Why not Warsaw or other European cities where Jews flourished, whats the difference?"   

I admit, I was not ready for that level of pre-meditated ignorance, or contempt, and of course it brought about an emotional response, in which I actually had to hold my temper.  

I know it has been said a million times, and I'm sure it will be said a million more.  Most Jews, including many in Israel simply do not have or understand the connection we have to this land.  I'm not saying they have to agree with my opinions, or be in the One State Jewish Camp, but to understand and to feel the connection, that is paramount.  

These outside groups discuss the need to understand the "conflict" yet they make every effort to actually color it to their predesigned views. A visit to a "settler" means a "Rabbi" usually, some one religious at least, or more accurate, someone who most Jewish students would feel no connection to, even actually dislike because of constant feuding and controversies going on in our little "shtetles".

Of course they are always brought to the Palestinian Peace Loving Moderates who only seek self determination in their own ethnically cleansed state...but that has nothing to do with anything. These groups are much like horses with blinders on, being led around without seeing the surroundings, basically at the mercy of those pulling them literally by the nose.  Some call it the blind leading the blind, but it is not that innocent, the "leaders" know exactly what they are doing, and the victims are our future generations.

The government of Israel claims that they will be taking the reigns in reconnecting Jews living in the diaspora with our land.  I’m curious to see how they plan on doing this and based on what model, or what new miracle potion they have brewing in the pot.  In the mean time, they are not even at the discussion level, and then it will be endless meetings discussing how to do it, when to do it, and when to schedule the next meeting to discuss the same thing… classic Kibbutz/Socialist methodology.

When our fearless leaders here (in Israel) actually decide to roll up their sleeves and start to work, I hope their first goal will be to understand and tag those who are working against our peoples connection to our land.  I then hope they will make the effort to crush those same “anti” efforts and missions, even though most of these “missions” are being led and funded by “stand up” Jewish “leaders” and their organizations. 

The Arabs are not teaching the concept of Peace with the Jews in their schools, their media still spills daily and hourly lessons in hatred.  Despite the “Shiny and Happy” people you will see representing “Palestine”, who BTW are straight out lying about their society and live only in the nice sections of secular Ramallah.  We have no choice but to take the lead today, to connect our people back to our land and ourselves.  That goes even for the “Right” thinking people, both in and out of the country.  

Time to re-Format our thinking, fix that hard drive and yes, upgrade it the latest and better model out there.  Some peripherals may be dropped in the process, but time to reboot our people.  A new OS (Operating System) is in the works, better upgrade as the old one will stop working soon and all your old “programs” just wont work anymore. (Sorry for all the computer talk, just worked).


That is our alternative, our only alternative.

AIPACin'

For the past six years I have been receiving calls from the floor of the AIPAC conference in DC.  I always hear the same question, "why wasn't I there".  So this year I decided to preempt the callers and I took part this year in the AIPAC conference in DC.  My decision wasn't based on any want or feeling that I had to support AIPAC, rather that I felt I needed to learn more for myself.  I admit that my feelings towards AIPAC have not been the most favorable due to their negative stance to the communities in Judea and Samaria, and the continued refusal to take congressmen out to see other realities and alternatives. Over the past few years I have also been meeting more and more congressman, "policy makers" and many others who work in the US admin or political apparatus, all seeking to know more, especially in the security field in which I work.

A common denominator among the US politicians, or at least one of the many, has always been the question, "why doesn't AIPAC take us out to Judea and Samaria?". I have heard congressmen say to me that the more they become pro Israel, the less Jewish support they get.  And have even found outright refusal by some of AIPAC leaders to acknowledge the spectrum of realities in Israel, only to look through the narrow slit, many of us call a point of view.

Even more fuel to this desire to attend was the fact that a week prior to the conference, a contingent of J Street board members, along with other members of not the most Judea and Samaria friendly folk, led by Jeremy Ben Ami himself came out to meet me in Shilo. The match that lit the flame was when one of the members said to me, rightfully so, " I know you don't really like us, but at least we came out to hear you here in your home, AIPAC never does", he was right.

So, armed with curiosity, a healthy dose of motivation and a tie, I set off.  I was not really prepared for what I saw. I was expecting only to see a mob of delusional abyss, a confrontation with the "enemy within", though those two challenges were healthy in attendance, and other similar challenges.

What I did see was a large group of people who honestly support Israel and are doing what they feel they can do best to keep the US on Israel's side. It's a given that, that concept is as diverse as the Jewish people themselves.

Indeed our Jewish people were represented by a healthy show of our own spectrum, all shapes and colors, and yes even political views ranging from right to left (though I personally no longer like to use those terms).  One could see a clear example by the  varied Rabbinical presence afoot. "Rabbis" from all walks of life, genders, and well, let's say all sorts.

Panels, forums, discussions ranging from topics such as the Iranian issue to cooking splattered the many rooms, podiums and varied venues throughout the conference.  Most were filled to capacity. I was truly surprised by the amount of different issues discussed regarding our little country, and the fact that so many people would attend to hear about issues many of us just scan over in our daily reads.

My main curiosity was of course the Israeli - Arab " conflict", the local one, which is the realm in which I traverse. Since this is one of the big two being discussed by the New York Times, HaAretz and the Thom Friedman group, I tried to focus on close to home.

They had the Former head of Shabak, "Think Tanks Scholars", and of a course a HaAretz reporter, among the many experts, whom most in attendance figured is the real knowledge of our present day crisis. I attended as many of these panels as I could.  Half truths, altered facts and premeditated misinformation were the lead actors in these B-rated performances. 

Security officials turned politicians presented partial scenarios rather than a more full accurate picture that would enable those present to have an informed opinion.  The "Mavens" from various institutes definitely presented more facts, but were strategically manipulated from a broader look into the situation on the ground, and needless to say, I was not surprised by the direction taken by the "truly informed", seekers of right, our ever endeared Left wing of Israel, one of which Ari Shavit, HaAretz Champion, who seemed to be hold one of the starring roles.

I watched as people seethed and squirmed in their seats listening to perceived truths and theories. I listened as questions that countered the orchestrated left leaning claims presented were addressed, and only partially answered, leaving only more questions and quizzical looks. Of course I also noticed the looks of pride among those who still dwell in their own ignorant bliss.

None of this left me surprised.

Two main points I found interesting. 

One - the amount of people who are Judea and Samaria "friendly" realists and supporters were in attendance and truly out in force, but they were quiet...too quiet, at times it seemed stifled, and afraid to discuss their views. Even the side discussions by those who at least outwardly appeared to be good ole heartland supporters tended to avoid the subject of Jewish presence and existence in Judea and Samaria. Like some taboo subject to be discussed in dim lit corners, hidden like chased subversives out to start a rebellion, (hold that thought for a future article). Never to let an opportunity pass, I enjoyed the chance to instigate thought and jumped into a few of these quorums to shake things up.  Proud to say that the discussions indeed turned interesting.  Political Correctness seemed to be the password of the day. This was even more pointed out when a dear friend of mine, Helen Freedman attempted to show me a sign showing support of Jewish Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria. She was quickly surrounded by "Security" people and AIPAC staffers, telling her that she was endangering others by simply showing me, I might add, privately, that sign.

Two - the friendliness of so many of the attendees was incredible, the atmosphere was truly a breath of fresh air.  Once people would hear where I and my friends at the conference call home, you would see a thirst for knowledge well up like they haven't had a drink of water in days. So many asked questions, because they were realizing that they just didn't know and always thought that they really didn't belong to "those" people out there. When proofs, other opinions and possibilities were shown to counter the altered facts they had been shown and taught, their interest only heightened. In fact May expressed not only a want to come and see for themselves, but an anger at those who have been keeping them and their children in the dark.

Both of these points have strengthened me, and shown me  just how important it is that we do not forsake our people who do not have the privilege to really experience our land. That we must continue to make the efforts to not just fight for our land but to continue to help defend so many of our people outside who are virtually defenseless to the onslaught of delusional and dangerous efforts made by a well financed group of people who would prefer to change the reality of Israel.

AIPAC has far to go, and their efforts, though claiming to be noble are still playing into the hands of many of our detractors and yes, enemies. Whereas they descend on the many congressmen in continued and determined effort to stay the needed support of Israel (for the greater good I must add), their supporters must see the fuller picture in Israel. That is why we, who are involved with fighting for our land must attend these conferences, and not let them fall further from our reality, thus enabling them to present a stronger picture for the reasons to support and stand by Israel.

I would like to add that I was not alone in my efforts. I was privileged to have in my company, neighbors, friends, truly brothers and who I consider heroes of our land, that made the experience not only more enjoyable, but meaningful.

May we see the miracle of Purim return and our people overturn the threats of our enemies, sooner than later.

One of the finest moments for One Israel Fund.


I am sure that most of you are aware of our chaotic snowstorm in Israel. They say nothing like it for 100 years. Indeed in Shilo, my home town, we have been without heating, phones, internet, electricity and water since Thursday night, and we are not the only ones.  If you follow the reports you will read how many not only were stuck in their homes and communities without heat, but the many who were stuck on the roads getting home, the many who needed medical attention or to be taken to hospitals without a means to do so. In short, as we say a "Balagan".

My cellphone service returned on Sunday morning and my phone has barely had a chance to rest to the thank GD many reports of how equipment supplied by One Israel Fund has been instrumental in not only assisting the many stranded, but crucial in saving many lives not only in Judea and Samaria, but in Jerusalem also.

The various emergency and security lighting needs we supplied have been used none stop.  Many residents taking pride in seeing the One Israel sticker shining in the beam of the rescuers approaching them.  Our portable thermal cameras, the Tac Sight, being used to spot people stranded in the snowed over, cut off roads of Judea and Samaria.  One Israel Fund Advanced Life Saving Kits making the rounds where needed, again the One Israel Fund emblem reflecting proudly in the beams of light.

Yesterday, I received a call from the Megillot Search and Rescue Teams medical representative telling me proudly how due to the recent, and I mean just over a week ago, One Israel Fund sponsored Ambulance Upgrade Project, specifically refitting their ambulance for tough terrain, their ambulance was called into Jerusalem and was directly responsible for saving the lives of over ten people.  Not the medical assistance other calls they responded to, but real life saving response... Because many of the other ambulances could just not make it.

I personally feel this is one of our greatest hours or days as it turns out. Many of you often hear of our successes in thwarting terror, and protecting our people from this viral threat in our land.  This is a side many do not get to see, nor do many realize.  One Israel Fund is also about keeping people safe, enabling our brave to do their job, properly.  It is about Achdut...Unity, about how when our people work together, we accomplish miracles, that lives are not only saved, but protected.

I have been through my share of warfare, and have experienced and responded directly to more terrorism than most, and I say to all of you, this is one of the high points in my "career" of working with our people, seeing this Achdut, and knowing many of you personally are part of this wonderful team, this One Israel Fund team, making that small difference, that small difference we call life.

May GD grant us all continued success!

Chanukah Cont'd

I recently spent a few days in New York City.  While this was actually nothing out of the ordinary for me, what I experienced, was.

My trips usually deal with speaking and discussing the various security issues occurring in Judea and Samaria.  During this most recent trip I met a number of very special Jewish college students who were very much involved in the Zionist cause as they termed it.

What made it special was that these kids were very much against not only a Jewish presence in our historical heartland, but the concept of a Jewish state also.  Even more extraordinary, more appalling, more devastating, this group was quite diverse, they came from religious homes, Israeli homes, and Mizrachi (Syrian and Egyptian to be precise) homes as well as the usual main stream Federation homes.

I listened to their arguments, their passions and their claims against Israel.  The common denominator was that they had the majority of their facts twisted and perverted beyond belief.  That and the claim that they are all ardent Zionists and lovers of Israel.

Naftali Bennet happened to be the focus that particular day, and their shouts against the Occupation their battle cry.

I decided not to argue with them, but discuss the issues with them, not as who I am or what I do, but as someone who was interested in what they had to say.  It was great and I truly enjoyed the dialogue. They had valid points, at least in their minds as to what they think has to be done to bring peace, and of course the crimes committed daily by us Jews in the hood.

After showing another side of the picture, and pointing out how much they are missing due the fact that they do not listen to the statements made in Arabic, nor read Arab media, I was able to open their eyes and supply them with many facts of which they were not aware.  Watching the realization that they have been duped and mislead regarding the situation in Israel flood their faces brought joy to me.

More important, was seeing just how many kids, who supposedly have a strong identity  and connection due to their ethnic upbringing are now being targeted by anti-Israel Jewish organizations and their questionable sources of funding.

On the other hand, when I asked the opposing Pro Zionists to defend their positions, the majority were unable to hold a match to the well-manipulated and deceived protestors.  They couldnt tell me why we the Jewish people/ Israel have rights to be in Judea and Samaria, they barely knew any history, and more disappointing were the statistic and info sheets they read from, received from some of the better known pro-Israel Israel college organizations. Names available upon request.

In short, the stench of a wide spread epidemic of ignorance among both sides.

I admit and am proud to belong to the side that supports the right of Jews to live in Judea and Samaria.  But I am continuously amazed at the ignorance of so many, especially our future Diaspora leaders who claim to side with me in my convictions and opinions.

More alarming is the fact that due to their ignorance they are prime targets to be inducted into a plethora of anti-Israel movements, that infect mainstream US Jewry, this being accomplished by deceit, misinformation and manipulation.

Even more saddening is the fact that so many of their very pro-Zionist parents do not care enough to educate them or expose them to the needed knowledge as they go forth in combat on most US college campuses.

Sure, they donate to the pro-Israel Advocate organizations that attempt to fight this disease, but that is the limit for most.  Feeble attempts at defense, rather than fighting an enemy that looks to end a Jewish future in our land, an enemy that would take their Amusement Park away, so many call Israel, from their vacation itineraries.

I have started visiting campuses, synagogues and other Jewish groups on my own time, just to listen and to learn what they do not know.  There is no doubt the numbers are growing.  It would seem that there should be an alternative quantitative result to the recent Pew poll, not only as to how many Jews are leaving the fold, but how many are being yanked out by the ever growing anti-Israel groups working the campus turf and mainstream Jewish haunts.

Not to sound too morbid, but we can note too many similarities to the Jewish communities in Europe upon hearing of Nazi intent and efforts against the Jews only to wake up too late.

One of the reasons Israel was created was to supposedly protect the Jewish people all over the world from our enemies.  I am sorry to say that the Israeli government is not standing up to the challenge, and is actually an accessory to this crime, by trying to be too P.C. and not answering the calls of so many young Jewish students who travel here, who actually yearn to learn about their history and connection to the land.  Rather than show them historical facts and making their Hebrew School teachings a reality, our government wearing the hat known as the Jewish Agency bends to the whims of cash-laden Federations who insist on limited travel and knowledge, and advocate for a new Muslim, Jew-free entity within the borders of the State of Israel.

I heard with my own ears, at the General Assembly of North American Federations, a Resource Development head in the Jewish Agency admit to how proud she was, that after two years in Israel (after Aliyah) she was proud not to have visited sites intimately connected to her past.

Sure, I could just say, the heck with it, but I have yet to meet the young Jewish participant on these Birthright and Masa trips who is not interested in seeing their own history and connection to this land, and furthermore is looking to visit the actual places they have only read about and heard about growing up in Hebrew schools and synagogues.

In the real world, Israel has learned that we cannot wait for our enemies to act against us in our existential challenge of being, we must be proactive and act first against our enemies.  In the challenge facing our young today who live far from our land, we must do the same. Our arsenal must be re-fit with better education and motivation, with better means to spread true facts.  As more and more of these anti-Israel organizations and groups are created and funded by mis-lead and hateful people it is imperative that we become more proactive and not just respond.

Here in Israel more and more of our people are learning and connecting, the same must happen to our young on the other side of the ocean. There is no choice.

Just as our enemies during the first Chanuka wished to pry us from our land, our heritage, and our identity, the same challenge exists today.

The Maccabees joined together in unity to fight this effort. We must mirror the effort, and join together as one, and fight for our kids all over the world.

It can be done.

Ich Bin ein Palestiner! Some Questions, Some Thoughts...


What makes a “Palestinian”?  Who is a “Palestinian”? Is it based on Religion, Ethnicity, is it exclusive?

If the world considers the 1949 Armistice line the border between Israel and Palestine, so are any children born in Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus, and living over the “Green Line” Palestinians?  

Since the Arabs consider all of Israel Palestine, doesn’t that make us all Palestinians in their eyes? Or does the term “Palestinian” only apply to certain religions and ethnicity, which is of course racist? And if birth is citizenship in a particular place (such as done in the US), shouldn’t the world recognize us all as Palestinians?

Why are Jews being singled out as NOT being Palestinians?  When the Arab and anti-Israel groups put signs up speaking of ethnic cleansing, why does it not apply to Jews? Aren’t they speaking about specifically “cleansing” the Jews from land, land that has THE Jewish history? No one has been speaking about removing Muslims, or Christians...

Since the term “Palestinian” obviously excludes any Jewish rights, it is therefore racist, and organizations such as Rabbi’s for Human Rights, Adalah, Machsom Watch, and so many more, under the funding of the umbrella of the New Israel Fund are guilty of Hate Crimes.  Wouldn’t that make US and EU financial Aid a backer of a racist regime over here in the Levant...that touts ethnic cleaning and makes them also guilty of hate crimes?

What would the “situation” be like if in 1948 Ben Gurion did not change the name of the region, and continued with the name “Palestine”... What would the Muslim Arabs be calling themselves today? Would the term “Occupation” apply? Who would be “occupied”?

Going down the road feelin' bad...

Bibi will not be forgiven for the sin of disgracing the memories of loved ones murdered by sub humans, (I do not want to insult any animal), in his continued release of murderers, in the name of falsely promised peace.  I am not talking about supposed combatants taking lives of each other, rather about the sub specie terrorists who murdered innocents, unarmed, and among them children in horrendous fashion.

Bibi, has often attempted and succeeded in playing the tough guy... he, who claims he will fight for Israel's security, releases the murderers of our children, our brothers and sisters and strengthens those that will continue to bear arms against the Jewish people worldwide, and causes a nation to bow its head in shame and disbelief in the face of our enemies.

The headlines of all major Israeli media voices the angst and the anger against this move.  Of course this excludes Al Jezeera’s rep in Israel... HaAretz.  The people are against this.

The Arabs laugh out loud at our naiveté, our arrogant ignorance and our gullibility.  We replenish their forces in return for more terror, and they, and the world will continue to mock us by attacking us further in their quest to relieve themselves of a Jewish presence in our land.

The Bibi led government has the “Chutzpah” to say that they will build more homes, in our land as the reward for this release.

Yes, I realize that we do not know what is going on behind closed doors.  Who knows what pressures Bibi is facing, or the juggernaut of blackmail and threats that Team "O", Kerry, Indyk, and the other DC Boyz hold over our heads? Nor do we see into the hearts of those that grieve non stop into an uncertain future.

The Prime Minister and his minions claim to be saving us from the great evils of maniacal Iran, his nightmare, his obsession and his possible last claim to fame.  This, while he ignores an internal illness of orchestrated and manipulated self loathing by the weak and ignorant.  This illness itself, spawned by enemies among us, that eats away at our ability in the making of sane decisions regarding our land.

So, Bibi, you are doing this for the greater good are ya'? Everyone realizes that you or anyone will never achieve peace with any Arab who has invented himself as a "Palestinian" and feeds himself with the continued incitement and lies against the Jewish nation.  The world snickers at the cowardliness of Israel and now chases us like a junkyard dog who senses fear.

You sir, are failing, we will not.

As I have the privilege of traveling throughout our land, even in the labyrinth of "Lefty" Tel Aviv, I witness and hear the changing minds out loud.  Not a change of sides to say, but an awakening to reality, our Israeli reality. 

That reawakened reality dictates that the Arabs do not have leaders who want peace, or who are remotely interested in it.  That the Arabs are interested in one state, an Arab state, void of any Jewish presence.  One only need to follow the speeches made in Arabic or follow the curriculum taught at any of the many UN and EU sponsored schools and camps.  

Yes, even many of the “opened minded free thinkers” of TA are singing a different tune, or should I say "toon".   

But now, Bibi hurts us once again, and all of his consorts are being questioned.. How could they disgrace us so by letting these terrorists go free... In the name of what goes on behind closed doors?

People on all sides of the political spectrum simply wait for a new prince to appear to replace our current confusion.  Bibi’s dissapointing lack of direction and continued weakness is unifying more and more of our people in Israel, to see who we are and who are our enemies.

As his spine jellies, ours hardens.
