Imagine some unknown college team beating the Lakers in a game that counts. That’s how it felt last Sunday, when Hapoel Eilat, who has just gained entry into Israel’s top basketball league, defeated Maccabi Tel Aviv 89-82 in overtime.

This is the new U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, visiting troops at an undisclosed location in Southeast Asia, April 25, 2013.

This Haredi gentleman serves at an IAF base, and if you ask me, he is the living image of everything that’s right with this country.
