Please read, comment and share, thanks.
We have no real allies to "alienate," and we've never really had any to rely on. Even as Israel loudly tangles with Sweden, the UN, and the US envoy, Netanyahu is quietly trying to 'muddle through' amid signs of eroding US d...

 I had a great surprise this week. Read all about it!
I don't know if this sort of thing is happening to my peers, but of late, now in "late middle age," I've been rediscovering/reconnecting with old friends and have made contact with relatives I hadn't seen or heard from in mor...

It's totally clear to me and many others that the very early Zionists were connected to Jewish religion and values, even if they davka desecrated the Sabbath and ate forbidden foods. They were "mehadrin," extremely religious in their love of the Land of Israel. Without a strong belief in Gd and the idea that the Jewish People are the Chosen People, they could never withstood the difficulties of establishing the towns and agricultural settlements.

I guess I'm just clueless about what people like. 
What do you think?
Shot From Below Greetings from... A couple of weeks ago, I was so shocked and happy that my "Greetings from..." photo for 52Frames got so many "likes" and nice comments, but then, my "Shot From Below" was very ignored. I have...

Picture of The Day: Only in Israel!
I think this picture says a lot about life in Israel that you won't find anyplace else. The sign on the bus is of the most basic of Jewish Prayers, the "Shma," "שמע."   Sh'ma Yisra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad. Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lor...

The Myth of Israel's Foreign Allies
We have no real allies to "alienate," and we've never really had any to rely on. Even as Israel loudly tangles with Sweden, the UN, and the US envoy, Netanyahu is quietly trying to 'muddle through' amid signs of eroding US diplomatic cover. Shrill wind from...

Another "Puzzle Piece" of My Life Found
I don't know if this sort of thing is happening to my peers, but of late, now in "late middle age," I've been rediscovering/reconnecting with old friends and have made contact with relatives I hadn't seen or heard from in more than a half century but I'm no...

NY Times Part Right but Totally Distorted
As the saying goes, the most convincing lies have some truth in them. That's a good way of describing this New York Times op-ed called   Who Are the Real Heirs of Zionism? . The Israeli general and politician Yigal Allon defined Zionism in 1975 as “the nati...
