The Jerusalem Night Run, a 6 mile race, took off last night from the old train station. The race was mainly for folks preparing for the March, 2014 Jerusalem Marathon. The race was scheduled to start at 9 PM, which is why the entire city was shut down as of 4 PM. This is why […]

These Syrian refugees, children and adults, have settled at the Zaatari camp in Northern Jordan. The camp was first opened on July 28, 2012 to host Syrians fleeing the violence in the ongoing Syrian civil war that’s been raging since the spring of 2011. In the summer of 2013, the camp population was estimated at […]

President Barack Obama talks with Secretary of State John Kerry in the Oval Office. Here’s what the president is saying: Here’s how we’ll handle Bibi. First, we’ll tell him we can’t support Israel on the Iran nukes unless he agrees to talks with the Palestinians where they get to have preconditions but he gets none. […]

Here are two Arab merchants in Ramallah unloading posters of the late Chairman Yasser Arafat, with the caption in Arabic “Don’t let the olive branch fall from my hand,” November 7, 2013.

Here’s Israel’s former and future foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman giving thanks at the Western Wall, after his acquittal in a Jerusalem Magistrate Court. And there was a lot to be thankful for. After 17 years of being hounded and questioned and interrogated and browbeaten by the cops, the press, the prosecution, the entire Ashkenazi junta, […]

Meet Yossi and Sari Tal and their baby. They live in Bat Ayin. On Tuesday, a large Israeli security force arrived in their small town and did this. Today, the same force is in Maoz Esther nearby, doing this. They’re able to do this without any legal recourse to their victims—tax payers like you and […]

The Women of the Wal 2nd Rosh Chodesh Kislev prayer (they skipped the first) went by quietly, with very little reaction from the Haredim. Maybe the presence of an entire police regiment helped. Maybe the Haredim were just exasperated and let them have this one. Except for the woman in the picture, who stood among […]

Arabs Crowd Israeli Gas Stations as Shortage Plagues PA

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

This is what happens when you don’t pay your debts to the fuel providers: they stop shipping. I should think Arabs of all people would know this about the rules of fuel. And yet, here you go. Sunday was marked by many hundreds of Palestinian cars riding over to Israeli gas stations because the stations […]

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon riding his bicycle in a race around the Kinneret lake Saturday. Makes you wonder if it was a prank – they sent him an email saying he needed to bring a ground-level bike and everybody else got another message, to bring their regular bikes. He did kind of stood […]

An Osprey (Pandion haliaetus), aka Sea Hawk, Fish Eagle, and Fish Hawk, caught himself a nice, fat fish over in the Beit Sh’an valley. The Osprey arrives in the Middle East in autumn, and flies back to Northern Europe in spring time. Isn’t he gorgeous?

The women leading Hadassah group tours in 1954 “learned and exercised leadership skills as the result of their work fundraising and participating in Jewish and Zionist education.” Also: “Hadassah was involved in teaching adult Hebrew classes to better promote understanding and communication between Jewish Americans and Israelis.” So, what happened? Any, they flew in this […]

Here is President Barack Obama greeting former President Bill Clinton prior to a memorial service for former House Speaker Tom Foley, D-Wash., at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., Oct. 29, 2013.

Chicago Square, Hebron

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

I went looking for fun images from the Chayei Sarah get-together in Hebron, but didn’t find anything new, probably because it all happened mostly on Shabbat. But I did find this lovely image of  Chicago Square, which was apparently established during a Concert for Hebron in Chicago in 2012, is a rest area directly across […]

“State Circle” is this huge circle in north Tel Aviv (now referred to as “central Tel Aviv” which geographically makes no sense, but history is not written by geographers), which is part of the high rent district and where glitzy shops come to offer their wares. During the day it looks like this: At night, […]

Middle Eastern Country Builds Nuclear Weapons

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

The above photograph of the construction site near Dimona in the Negev desert for Israel’s then-secret nuclear reactor was taken in 1960. It is difficult to identify precisely who took that photo, but information in a draft U.S. Intelligence Board post-mortem strongly suggests that British and U.S. military attachés took it and similar photos. It […]

Coffee Superiority

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

From the day I came back, almost two years ago, I’ve been wondering how come every gas station concession stand in Israel produces delicious coffee that’s so much tastier than the most expensive coffee joints in New York. The cost is about the same—between 2 and 3 dollars—but while in New York the coffee is […]

Eat, Love, Pray, Vote Shas

I have no idea whether the folks who designed this Shas campaign poster have read or seen Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love. But their copy definitely follows that general idea: Praying, Loving, Keeping [Promises? Mitzvot?]. Great minds think alike…
