To exist, or not to exist. That is the question...

Yom shlishi, 15 Sivan 5770.



Okay, you know me.  I don't spend a lot of time or space here being political.  (Well -- maybe a little...)  This is not because I lack strong feelings regarding the security of Israel, or about the plight of the Palestinians.  Rather, it is because there are so many people who write about the situation better than I can.

Every once in a while, it is important to share what some of them are saying.  Please take five or so minutes to watch this video.  It graphically illustrates why giving away land is dangerous, purely from a security perspective.


Hat tip: Hillel Porath

If you can't see this video, or for more information, please visit The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.

My prayers continue to focus on the pain of the individual, and on the security of the collective.  May we live to see a time when pain and sickness and fear are lifted from our shoulders.  May we live to see the time when human beings can live near one another in peace and respect and tolerance.

 Shabbat shalom u'mevorach!

Ruti,

I have often wondered why people (countries) can not get along. Life is too short to make misery for others. Thank you for sharing this. Love ya, Enid

But until then, keep a round in the chamber and your gun hand free.

your prayer is truly beautiful and eloquent. thank you for sharing that message-of-the-heart as well as the video, which i guess would be a message-of-th-collective. *both* are much appreciated and valued.
