The Ups and Downs of Life in Israel (Book Review)

Choosing Life in Israel evinces what it means to be emotionally, spiritually, and viscerally drawn, as a Jew, to the siren song emitted by Israel.

An unbiased observer has to ponder: what can possibly possess an Israeli leadership to provide any supplies to an enemy entity, even while it rains rockets down on Israel’s terrorized citizens? Not only that, but it is a known fact that over 8,600  taxpaying Jewish citizens were pulled from Gaza, while their legally purchased homes (homes which were built with the government’s approval), beautiful communities, flourishing businesses, model schools and holy synagogues were torn asunder. To add to the readership’s cognitive dissonance, the dead were pulled from their resting places, all in order to “disengage” from Gaza. Yet, the author recognizes — clearer than most — that none of the above gives the leadership pause, to at least reverse course.

At its core, Choosing Life in Israel (available at Amazon.com in kindle and paperback) evinces what it means to be emotionally, spiritually, and viscerally drawn, as a Jew, to the siren song emitted by Israel. Its core components demonstrate an often overlooked but heartwarming reality: whether one is a secular or religious Zionist, those who choose to make their lives in Israel are generally kindred spirits. Thanks to P. David Hornik’s accomplished writing, reporting, and highly astute analysis of Middle East politics, this book offers a delectable and inspiring ride.

  1. An Israeli student, a JEW, was SHOT while jogging. He had no weapons, but he was SHOT! He was shot by someone who, in the near future, wants to meet the 72 virgins he was promised. I would give my right arm to use my.50 cal with scope to remove the slime that is killing everyone or anyone because Ala says to.
    I want the privilage to introduce them to the 72 whores they call virgins. It is time to make that country one, big piece of glass. Maybe then there will be peace for the Jews. God Bless Them All!

Many supporters of Israel are bedeviled by a glaring contradiction in Israeli political life. How can it be that, regardless of which party wins an election, leftist policies are invariably implemented?

Aside from the obvious looming dangers associated with a nuclear-armed Iran as well as attendant regional menaces, there exists an equally explosive strategic threat to Israel emanating from the country’s post-Zionist and anti-Zionist circles.
