From Sad-ish to Glad-ish

Boring is one of God's greatest gifts, especially for a soldier's mother.

Settling Back to Quiet

May God forever bless us with these messy floors and children who never listen for the siren, never look where to hide.

So They Won’t Have to Serve

My son-in-law needs to believe that there will be no need for soldiers in another 18 or so years. Deep down, I want to believe that too.

Color Me Camel

In the diary of terror victim Tal Kehrmann, Tal's parents found a picture of a camel, but it had not been colored in...

That’s the Way the World Is…

My children go to school behind fences, with an armed guard at the gates.

If You Talk to Them, What Would You Say?

What would I say to this news agency? This is my home - we have made the desert bloom, as we were promised.

From Sandy Hook to Netiv Meir; from Maalot to Newton

What we understood in Ma'alot, we cannot comprehend in this tragedy. In Newton, we are lost.

Obsessed

Why is the world obsessed with what isn't there and, even if it were, would do no harm.

Twenty-Seven World Idiots Meet On a Hill

The Arabs aren't accepting the pre-1967 borders, they are simply rejecting the post-1967 borders.

The Bravery of the UN Peacekeepers Tested Again

Today's news indicates that Japan is pulling its troops out of the UN Observer force in the Golan Heights.

Desperately Craving Normal

There are so many things that aren't normal about life here. Having a pile of gas masks in a corner of the room, for example, isn't normal.

The History of E-1

It's all about a mountain that sits between Maale Adumim and Jerusalem.

A Lie Once Told…

The picture isn't from Gaza. The blood wasn't from his brother. The Israelis weren't involved.

From Rockets to Roses

My greatest wish is that he soon runs out of base material from which to create his amazing art.

What Came Out of Operation Pillar of Defense

Few believe we won't be going back in to Gaza in the future to stop the missiles at our cities, the Fajir 5 and its next generations.

Thanksgiving

So, each year, most years, we made a Thanksgiving dinner with friends and family. When we moved to Israel, we made a few dinners with American friends, but for the most part, the tradition fell away.

What if the Siren Goes off When I’m Alone?

What world do we live in that a 12-year old has to consider going into a bomb shelter alone?

Creative Thieves

The Palestinians actually stole a street pole (charity boxes included) to fire at Israel.

What Is an Army?

The latest lie-line of the Gaza propaganda machine is that Gaza has no army, no forces.

The Ache in the Heart

Over time, the incredible connection that began when they were within you stretches.

Rocket Attack from Gaza (Video)

This is a video, taken yesterday by someone who was not very smart.

Of Course it was Planned!

I quickly lost count of how many rockets were fired at my country. At one point, the reporter was counting - "one, two, three, four, five, no six, seven, eight.

Jewish Mothers Have Rights

I'm not a fan of Shimon Peres - I have to be honest. If I look back over his career as a politician...well, I'd rather not. But Peres has his moments. He is very supportive of women. I heard him speak a few months ago. He spoke of men as babies and says women run the world, ground it, nurture it.

It’s Raining Rockets Again

I have to much I want to write about...but my mind is filled with two numbers - 30, and 9. Thirty is the number of rockets fired at Israel last night, hours after an Israel armored jeep was hit with an anti-tank missile, critically injuring two, lightly injuring two other soldiers. Nine is the number of rockets that had been fired at Israel by 9:00 this morning...schools in some areas are closed; people again ordered to stay near shelters.

America Has Spoken

America has spoken. Obama has been given and has claimed his victory. America will get the government and the leaders it elected and cannot now cry over the results that will come in the next four years. Some of us can and do regret the results, but we will live with them, no weaker than we were yesterday, no less aware of what this so-called victory will mean for Israel and for the US.
