Two state solution would never have worked; and the Paris “Peace” Summit won’t either

Today, there was a terror attack, similar in so many ways to the one I lived through. No, I wasn't there, and like today, Elie wasn't there. He wasn't...but he could have been...then and now. Nine years ago, I was sitting in ...

Sometimes we hear things and we don't know if they are true...but we fear they might be. There was a terror attack this morning. News said a truck rammed into 12 people....then it said 3 were killed and 15 wounded....now I am...

We did expect it..the signs from Obama/Kerry/Palestinians together with UNESCO, UNSC gave them the green light... Gideon Levy from Haaretz is also not so innocent using the power he has constantly on TV and media...RELEASE ELOR AZRIAH...

No, sadly, I don't have the right to fire him. I wish I did. I'm "only" the mother of one of his soldiers, perhaps three, perhaps six. But if I could, he'd be gone tomorrow. Gadi Eisenkot made a mistake yesterday - he got o...

תהלים פ.יג-כ: למה פרצת גדריה וארוה כל-עברי דרך:
יכרסמנה חזיר מיער וזיז שקי ירענה:
אלקים צבאות שוב נא הבט משמים וראה ופקד גפן-זאת:
וכנה אשר-נטעה ימנך ועל-בן אמצחה לך:
ששרופה באש כסוחה מגערת פניך יאבדו:
תהי-ידך על-איש ימינך על-בן-אדם אמצת לך:
ולו-נסוג ממך תחיינו ובשמך נקרא:
ה' אלקים צבאות השיבנו האר פנך ונוששעה:
Tehillim:80-13-20

I can't think of what to add to this. I knew the ending...there could be no other...and still, it felt too real to ignore. It's silly...until you realize it's not at all funny. It's too tragically true. No, I don't think it's...

Elie called a few minutes ago. "You can open the news now," he told me. My heart sank, my thoughts just froze. "What happened?" I asked, knowing, already knowing. "Ramming attack in East Talpiot." Not far from where Elie was ...

On the worst days, comes the need to remember the greatest blessings. That is my thought as this difficult day fades away and we look to tomorrow. I'm angry, I'm sad. I can't believe the idiocy of punishing a soldier for shoo...

Every soldier, when he or she comes to that first interview after receiving notification that they are being drafted in to the Israel Defense Forces is given a profile number. A rating of his or her physical health. The best ...
