The dead tell no tales… or do they?

The saying goes: “The dead tell no tales” but that’s not exactly true. The dead speak to us from beyond the grave but they do so in silent symbols that we, those who are full of life and sometimes full of arrogance, can choose to ignore. Haifa’s cemetery is full. …

Operation Thunderbolt.

I did not watch “Seven Days in Entebbe” and I don’t intend to. When the trailer came out my first reaction was excitement.  This story is one of the best, breathtaking, exciting, moving, against-all-odds, adventure stories I have ever heard and, best of all – it’s real.  And it’s OURS. …
