His and Hers Ballot Boxes

Posted on: November 26th, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Israeli Prime Minister and head of the Likud party Benjamin Netanyahu cast his vote yesterday, November 24, 2012, together with his wife, Sara, at the Likud primary elections. I suppose he voted in the box marked 1 and she in the box marked 2. The primaries ended up being such a holy mess, the Likud […]

Going Home

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Israeli soldiers were packing up their gear as they leave their staging area near the Gaza border, on the first day of the ceasefire, Friday, November 22, 2012. This morning the Likud is holding its primaries, to select a list of candidates for the Knesset. I sincerely hope that at least those Likud members who […]

Group Effort

Posted on: November 23rd, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

These IDF soldiers decided to express how they felt about their political leadership using their most precious possessions: their uniform-clad bodies. So they got together and formed the words “Bibi Loser” in the sand. It’s grammatically incomplete, and the use of Hebrew letters to write an English statement is questionable, but there’s no doubt about […]

Gotta’ love the following Ma’an Palestinian news agency report: One Citizen Dies and 3 wounded by Gunfire Celebrating the Victory of the Resistance Gaza – Ma’an – A citizen died and 3 others were wounded in shooting in the air to celebrate the victory of the resistance. A government spokesman for the Ministry of Health […]

The Hazards of Prayer

Posted on: November 21st, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

I’m looking at the picture of this IDF soldier davening Shmoneh esreh in the fields outside Gaza, and I’m thinking: what’s going on here? Was the tank there before he bowed (in the first or one-before-last) blessing? Is that what happened? And when he rises, all nice and ready to proceed with his communing with […]

Setting Up Child Murder

Posted on: November 20th, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Here’s a picture of a Hamasnik with his toddler boy on an outing together. Daddy appears well prepared for battle with the ruthless Zionist occupiers — baby boy not so much. Do Arab parents love their children? Yes. Is the man in this picture out of his mind, exposing his child to certain death? Also […]

Safe Hallways

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Israeli citizens are instructed to take shelter in the hallways and stairways of their apartment buildings after warning sirens sound, signaling an incoming rocket. We in the Tel Aviv area have not experienced this kind of thing since 1990. Our animals are particularly perplexed: it looks like we’re out on a walkie, but then no […]

Magen David - formed by tails of Iron Dome and Gaza rockets

Posted on: November 19th, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

In years to come, when peace reigns, maybe sky drawing with rockets will become its own art genre. For now, these appear to be the trails of Arab rockets shot at Israel and the Iron Dome rockets that rise to meet them. And together they form a Star of David. We could try for a […]

Shabbes Schlaf

An Israeli soldiers attending a training simulation of the ground war in Gaza, at a training base near Mount Hebron, Shabbat, November 17, 2012. It’s been a tense Shabbat, up here, outside the range of the Hamas rockets. Although, supposedly, two rockets fell in Rammat HaSharon, well north of Tel Aviv and only about ten […]

The Art of Sheltering

Posted on: November 16th, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

This is the neonatal unit of the bomb-sheltered section of Barzilai hospital, down in Ashkelon. When the rockets start flying overhead, and sirens start blasting in response, the hospital staff moves the critical care patients and the babies, incubated and everyone else, to the secure area, under layers of fortified cement. It’s a very complicated […]

Did Anybody Say 'The Children of Gaza?'

Posted on: November 15th, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

A runaway hit twit right now is this one: “Hamas Bumper Stickers: Baby Suicide bomber on board.” And a joke that’s getting old already goes: Two Palestinian mothers watch their children playing and one of them sighs and says, “They blow up so fast.” The image I picked this morning is of Arab children visiting […]

This is a picture of President Barack Obama watching the Vice Presidential debate aboard Air Force One with members of his staff, en route from Florida to Joint Base Andrews, Maryland. It was taken Oct. 11, 2012, when to the rest of us the campaign looked wide open, with a slight advantage to the Republicans. […]

King James II

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

This is a portrait of King James II by Nicolas de Largillière, c. 1686. James II was King of England and Ireland, and also doubled under the name James VII as King of Scotland. His reign began on February 6, 1685. He was the last Catholic monarch to reign over the Kingdoms of England, Scotland, […]

Golan Heights Wind Farm

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

The Golan Heights Wind Farm is located 3,150 ft. above sea level on Mount Bnei Rasan, three miles south of Quneitra in the Golan Heights. In other words, just a stone’s throw away from the bloodiest civil war raging in the region. It was the first wind farm ever built in Israel, back in 1992. […]

The Most Beautiful Picture of Israelis Ever Shot

The two men in this picture are Chief of Operations for the Southern Front Yitzhak Rabin and Southern Front Commander Yigal Allon, in 1949. It’s a cold day somewhere on the dunes east or south of Gaza. Neither man has slept much, which is evident from Rabin’s messy hair. Alon, four years older and considered […]

Humble Pie

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Now, there’s a fine exercise in the diplomatic niceties one must endure when one is prime minister of a small state in the near east, surrounded by enemies, with few friends to spare, and one’s favorite candidate has come up short. Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu (R) met on Wednesday with U.S. ambassador to Israel […]

Don't Drink Alone

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

It occurred to me that with so much of this website being devoted to politics and the Islamist threat, we should probably use some of our space contemplating the simple pleasures of life. So, today, when both the United States of America and the NRP-Bayit Yehudi Party are facing the vote that will decide their […]

This is the picture of an overworked, dead tired officer somewhere on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, who picked up his megaphone and began to try and talk some sense into Sandy, the ravaging hurricane. The image has gone a bit viral, and so we’re doing our little bit to help it along. […]

I visited my friend Ed Litvak’s news website thelodownny.com, for news from the old neighborhood following Sandy. Among the reports I ran into this image, of Seward Park Co-op residents helping each other recharge their laptops and phones. Meanwhile, those co-op residents (which are about one-third Jewish and half of that frum) have put aside […]
