One Thing I Wouldn’t Blame on Obama

Tel Aviv's Mayor had said that it was impossible to postpone the half marathon because of Obama's visit.
President Obama

During my thirteen 13 years as Shiloh’s Girls Gym Teacher, I was careful to obey the rule that said it’s forbidden to have outdoor lessons when the temperature is over 30 degrees Centigrade.

This past Friday was a hot  spring day.  In Tel Aviv, where they were having their Half Marathon, it was up to 36 degrees centigrade.  One runner died and others were hospitalized.

They didn’t expect such summer weather.  Looking at the Christian calendar, people were surprised that we had such hot weather in the middle of March, but if you look at the Jewish Calendar, and it’s very common for there to be summer weather early in the month of Nissan, just over a week before Passover.  We almost always have some very hot weather this time of the Jewish Year.

The organizers should have thought of what’s best for the runners and cancelled the race.  And from now on, they should schedule according to the Jewish Calendar and have it before Purim.  Yes, it may rain, but it doesn’t snow in Tel Aviv.

  1. Is this picture deliberately defamatory?

  2. Karen Berger says:

    Is this supposed to be a photo of Obama? What happened to his face?

  3. Mildred Bilt says:

    Karen; It was photoshopped in a vicious racist act of hate. Israelis are furious that he was reelected and refuses to jump at their command. In some incredible twist Israel believes that the US is a client state that owes tribute and homage to Israel and all American Jews failed to ensure that Obama was defeated in the contest with their preferred president Romney. Now they are furious that Hegel was confirmed as Defense Secretary and are saying that the US Jews will rue the day we let that happen too. So get ready for more ugliness from the haters.

  4. Obama looks scary,
