President Donald Trump never fails to surprise. It is always the context in which he makes his predictable announcements and the timing that could not be worse. This president is the most unconventional president that the US has ever had in all its history. His announcement that the US will officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal capital and that he will be ordering the US Embassy to be moved to Jerusalem will create repercussions in the Palestinian world if not the whole Arab world and its allies.

The Knesset in Israel has been plagued with a new Bill up for the third reading - a notorious Recommendation Bill that prevents the general public from knowing about police enquiries into sitting prime ministers suspected of breaking the law as well as weakening the police system and the law courts. If this Bill becomes law it will be another slap in the the face of Israel's democracy. Fortunately, this notorious anti-democratic Bill has been shelved for the present.

At first glance this may not be the case but one thing that Israel and South Africa do have in common is the insensitivity of their respective leaderships for the common citizen and their involvement in corruption either directly or indirectly. At least Israel's law enforcement authorities are carrying out investigations which is not the case in South Africa.

Are we not reaching a stage in Israel where the ruling coalition is interfering with the police in its duties to combat suspected infringements of the law by public servants (or Likud Knesset Members)? This is what President Zuma of South Africa is doing. We all know that SA is on the road to being a rogue state. Hopefully, Israel does not follow suit.

Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) is the Holiest Day in the Jewish Calendar, surpassing even Shabbat. On this day, it is customary for religious or even non-observant (“once a year” observant) Jews to fast for 25 hours. The secular Jews, who view themselves as non-believers may or may not fast depending on their motives if any. Some secular do fast and may attend Kol Nidrei (All Vows)1 services and maybe go to synagogue the next day for a bit in order “to identify” with their fellow Jews whatever that means.
