I have no idea why anyone would want to read this ridicullious c*&@ that I write because I am bored, but this blog is about stuff. You know Israel, cooking, family life, politics, entertainment...stuff. Whatever is on my mind! Enjoy!

Crazy World

It's interesting how fast the world changes. A few weeks ago, our minds were filled with summer revelry. We worried about which fireworks display to go to, whether to have a barbecue, if there was going to be time to go to the beach this summer, etc.... Now, first and foremost on many a mind is the situation in the Middle East.

Since this blog attempts to reach into my shallow mind, I will share some of my feelings on all of this...

1) Way to go Bush, for cursing the Syrians! Perhaps you should use some more colorful language in your State of the Union addresses, and such. Oh, that's right, the FCC may fine you for that. Oh well. Definitely go with the "(wink) mike off thing (wink, wink) more often.

2) Way to go mom, for sticking up for the promised land!!! You're awesome.

3) I was watching Nightline for a while last night, and the new guy was trying to follow the Haifa mayor around all day. Every time he'd start to get his interview, a siren would go off and they would be running to a bomb scene. This brought three thoughts to mind.

- It was realistic, and scary, yet just seeing pictures of Israel (even it's bombed buildings) made my heart ache to go there. It's amazing how profound an impact a place can have on a person, as well as the world.

- I am not saying the whole piece was pro Israel, but Nightline has come a long way since Ted Koppel.

- The Haifa mayor was the most professional, articulate Israeli politician I have ever seen. When will he run for Prime Minister?

4) The Leader of Hizbullah has said that he will give Tel Aviv a one hour warning before raining 500 missiles on them. Hizbullah claims to be planning this attack carefully, and has divided the city into grided squares in order to reach every area.
Yeah right! Since when do any of these groups give warning to an attack and; weren't those his missiles I saw landing in the Mediterranean off the coast of Haifa on TV last night? Also, if he was in possession of these missiles, wouldn't it have made sense to use them when already. I guess it's possible that he's waiting for a big shipment to arrive from Iran.

5) Not all the news from Israel is bad, apparently the Seret Visnitz chasidim, decided to move their Yeshiva to Rechovot on Monday. At the same time, their Rebbe, went to attend to some business in another area. Not long after the relocation, a Katusha hit their original yeshiva, and a few more fell in the surrounding streets.

    I enjoy reading your blog, you really do always have something interesting to say. It is obvious (at least to me) how Yad Hashem is at work here when katyushas are landing in populated areas and the injuries are kept to a minimum.
    Keep up the informative blogging.
