Those of us living just south of the Syrians intuitively understand how much more serious the consequences can be for us, compared with their effect on most others. It’s the sort of difference expressed in the oft-repeated parable of the farmer’s breakfast, and the respective roles played by the pig and the chicken. When the bacon and eggs are served up, the chicken can undoubtedly be said to have been concerned and involved. But the pig is really, truly and fully committed. When it comes to Syria, we’re not the chicken.

Frimet and Arnold Roth began writing and speaking publicly soon after the murder of their fifteen year-old daughter Malki Z"L in the Jerusalem Sbarro massacre, August 9, 2001 (Chaf Av, 5761). They have both been, and are, frequently interviewed for radio, television and the print media, including CNN, BBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Al-Jazeera, and others. Their blog This Ongoing War deals with the under-appreciated price of living in a society afflicted by terrorism which, they contend, means the entire world. Frimet is a native of Queens, NY while her husband was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. They brought their family to settle in Jerusalem in 1988. They co-founded the Malki Foundation in 2001 and are deeply involved in its work as volunteers. They can be reached at thisoingoingwar@gmail.com .

  1. Of course Mr. Obama's regime is "…hoping the Syrians don’t have really bad intentions…" That is the essence of Hope and Change. Unfortunately, it may include Israeli dead.

    The irony of the "chicken & pig" comparison is cute, given the context of Israel:)
