The Knock on the Door no Person Wants to Recieve

Netanyahu: The knock on the door after my brother was killed was the worst moment of my life   The telephone call that informed him of his brother Yonatan’s death in July 1976 on the Entebbe rescue mission remains the worst moment of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s life. He shared the continuously resonating pain of that loss with the Israeli public when he spoke Wednesday morning at a Remembrance Day ceremony at the Mt. Herzl Military Cemetery to mark the 23,320 soldiers and civilians who have been killed since the country was created in 1948. In this way, Netanyahu said, he is no different than the thousands of families whose lives were torn apart and changed forever when they heard a “knock” on the door that informed them that someone they loved had...

Yair Lapid – I am a Zionist

I thought this this was nice for Yom HaAtzmaut.   Written by Yair Lapid I am a Zionist. I believe that in the land of Israel the Jewish people rose but a little late. If we’d have listened to the alarm clock there wouldn’t have been a Holocaust and my grandfather – the one I’m named after – would have danced one last waltz with my grandmother, on the banks of the Yarkon.

My children and spouses were having a wonderful time on the family whatsap group, discussing barbecues, sending emojis and changing icons. It was a fun way to end a perfect “Sunday” Yom HaAtzmaut. 9 something – “Ding” on my pelephone. Small red alert flashes across the top of screen:  רוטר – צבע אדום בשדרות. “Oh no, Tzeva Adom in Sderot.” I report to Ron (Here we go again. Remember PTSD. I’m thinking, perfect Happy Birthday gift from Hamas!). We didn’t hear any booms. Maybe it was a false alarm. Check Rotter news alert. Check Jpost. Both report Tzeva Adoms alarms heard in Sderot and surrounding...
