This should serve as a cautionary note to Israel’s Magen David Adom (MDA) service, which so eagerly cooperates with the Palestinian Red Crescent, to the point of transferring to the latter the medical authority in the district of Samaria.

The air at the event in Jerusalem was rife with the kind of excitement one finds in rock concerts. The thick crowd pushed, shoved, pressed, retreated temporarily, then pushed as relentlessly and eagerly as before. If the core idea of the entire event was to urge our Redemption from above by starting it down below, then this one had to have cut through a whole bunch of "klipot."

A scene from Woody Allen's "Sleeper." Diane Keaton wails: "Oy vey Ize Meer…"

News & ViewsYori's News Clips

In Woody Allen's 1973 comic Sci Fi masterpiece "Sleeper," an underground band in the far future is trying to revive Allen's memory by acting out scenes from his childhood in Jewish Brooklyn. One of the men, in the roll of Allen's father, urges him, "Stop whining and eat your shiksa…" That was the feeling that overcame me when I read the article in Monday's Daily Mail of New Baltimore, NY, under the headline "Church brings Jewish traditions to life."

The soldiers tried to distance him by firing at him, confirming a hit.

Board-certified Miami plastic surgeon and Nose Job Specialist Michael Salzhauer surprised me.
