Quiet in Shuafat, Beit Chanina, East Jerusalem, Thank G-d

Late this morning went down to the bus stop in Shiloh to get to Jerusalem, but the bus didn’t come… so I hitched a ride, actually two. One after another. And that second ride was to Jerusalem. As usual, I asked where and how, meaning which route. The driver said that he was hoping to take the Benzion Netanyahu Road which goes through the Arab neighborhoods where the rioting had been these past few days.

“I checked and was told it was open and quiet,” he said.

Considering that he would take me close to where I needed to go and said that if the road looked bad, he’d go the other way, so I stayed in the car.

The driver was right. The streets were empty, and so were the sidewalks. The road was totally clear.

We had a very quick and pleasant drive. B”H, thank G-d things were quiet.

Like the fighter pilot’s letter, I wonder if certain units are simply too sensitive to allow certain leftwingers to serve in, and to entrust in their hands the security of our country and our lives.

There is only one thing more tragic than experiencing a terror attack, and that is allowing those who attacked you to do it again!

Smuggling Gazans into Europe is cheaper than fighting with Gaza, and then rebuilding all the destruction.

This week’s parsha offers a new covenant; a covenant that speaks to national life unlike any other

Reuters has an article up claiming that to rebuild Gaza it will cost $7.8 billion. (Reuters) – Rebuilding Gaza will cost $7.8 billion, the Palestinian Authority said on Thursday, in the most comprehensive assessment yet of damage from a seven-week war with Israel during which whole neighborhoods and vital infrastructure were flattened.

It’s time to accept that the world cares more for “Palestinian” fiction than Jewish rights in Israel
