From Israel: “The Great Sifting Project!!”

I am referring to the task that lies before us to make certain that factual information about Israel’s new government (official picture below) is properly publicized.  Genuine anxieties must be addressed and hysterical misrepresentations must be refuted. Credit: Marc Israel Sellem/JPost Not an easy task, but a very important one. …

From Israel: Vile and Insufferable!!

Let us put the title of this posting aside for the moment. We are moving close to the formation of a new right wing government – which, quite to the contrary – will be cause for considerable thanksgiving. Otzma Yehudit headed by Itamar Ben Gvir, the Religious Zionist Party headed …

From Israel: “They Would Spit in Our Faces!!”

If we let them.  And so the ultimate question is where Israel stands. When I speak of “them,” I am referring to national and institutional entities that are anti-Zionist. Unfortunately, there are many. ~~~ A major concern for Israel is the readiness of the European Union (EU) to support and …

Arlene from Israel: Outrage

Outrage – I’m talking about steam-coming-out-of-my-ears outrage. The subject is the allegedly ancient Arab village of Susiya.  The issue is Israel’s rights as a sovereign state operating under rules of law. ~~~~~~~~~~ The background, briefly: In the Hebron Hills of Judea there are the remains of an ancient Jewish city …

Arlene from Israel: Seeking Rays of Light.

However painfully overcast the current situation is, we should not see it as totally dark. Those “rays of light” must be sought, and nurtured, even as we see what is going on with clear eyes and face it with stiff spines. Turning back to the Iran situation and Congress, which …

Arlene from Israel – From All Sides.

This is a posting that begs to be written, even as I do my Shabbat preparations. Shabbat is actually Tisha B’Av – the ninth of Av, which commemorates a host of tragedies that have befallen the Jewish people, most significantly the destruction of the Temples. Because we do not mourn …
