Isareli Flag - Israel - Promised Land - The Magen David (shield of David, or as it is more commonly known, the Star of David) is the symbol most commonly associated with Judaism today, but it is actually a relatively new Jewish symbol. It is supposed to represent the shape of King David's shield (or perhaps the emblem on it), but there is really no support for that claim in any early rabbinic literature. In fact, the symbol is so rare in early Jewish literature and artwork that art dealers suspect forgery if they find the symbol in early works.

Countless Jewish children ask, "Why Be Jewish"? Can anyone give them an answer? In this book, Rabbi Kahane blasts the non-Orthodox streams of American Judaism for the spiritual holocaust they brought upon American Jewry, and presents his solution to the widespread assimilation among American Jews.

Barack Hussein Obama a Muslim apostate headed for the White House?

Under Islamic law, if your father is a Muslim, so are you. And once a Muslim, always a Muslim. You cannot go back.

What if Obama is engaged in pious fraud?

This is a Muslim practice of pretending not to be Muslim to further the cause of Islam or to "defend the faith". He becomes President and then says, "Gee…I think I want to be Muslim again" after he finds the "football" in his hands that carries the launch codes for the USA nuke forces.  Read more

Letters from Israel

Dear Friends,

I am writing to you and my friends in the USA while the bombs are falling and our reserves are moving north by the thousands. We, thank G-d are unharmed, but around us and north of us there is tremendous destruction and uncertainty. Families are in bomb shelters most of the day and everything has come to a stop. I am sure your tfilot and tehillim and thoughts are directed to the people of Israel.

 How Did Yaakov Prepare for War with Esav?
Posted by Lady-Light, Wednesday, July 19, 2006

He prepared gifts for his brother (we tried appeasement: Oslo Accords, Wye River Memorandum, Camp David, Road Map, the hitnatkut from Gaza), he divided his camp and prepared to fight (we are now fighting on two fronts), and he prayed to Hashem (see our "Holy Jewish Soldiers"... Hat Tip to my friend Chana in Tzfat).

May Good triumph over evil, and may Hashem protect all of Israel.

The TRUTH about the MYTHS - Would the World be Better Off without Israel (G-d Forbid)?

Posted by Lady-Light Friday, July 14, 2006

It's about time for a post, don't you think? Couldn't come at a better time, seeing that Israel is finally hitting back hard at her enemies who have all but declared war on her. For those of you who have had your heads in paper bags for the last couple of weeks, Israel is fighting for her life on two fronts, the south, in Gaza (Aza - why the 'g', I have no clue), and the north, in Lebanon. This is because, in both areas, Hamas & Hezbollah (financially & otherwise supported by Damascus and Teheran) attacked, sent Kassam and Katyusha rockets into Israeli cities targeting, wounding and murdering civilians, and kidnapped soldiers. All this this a major offensive and is tantamount to a declaration of war on Israel.

That given, I commend President Bush for supporting Israel's right to defend itself. However, where does Condi Rice get the nerve to request that Israel use restraint? Would the US use 'restraint' if attacked by Mexico?? I think not; it would retaliate and re-annex it to TEXAS, for god's sake. When was the last time Rice or anybody else in this government had to rush their children into bomb shelters for the umpteenth time?!

Think about it. Approximately one-third of the country has been attacked and is in bomb shelters. One-third! Translate late into American terms, and it takes on a whole new
meaning.

An Open Letter to Rama:
posted by Lady-Light

Dear Rama,

Thank you for commenting on my previous post. I thank G-d that you survived the Hutu massacre of Tutsis in 1994. One needs to understand the history and politics of Rwanda to understand what contributed to that terrible event ( here's a site which might help:

The same is true of the Arab/Israel conflict. Read that history, and also the history of the Jews in that region of the world. (here's a good site to begin with:

The fact is that most of the world does not understand, nor cares to understand what is going on in the Middle East today and why. They only see and hear the propaganda and 'marketing' which is shouted out the loudest and longest, by the Arabs (Israel needs a good lesson in public relations!).

In light of that, let me answer your comment on my previous post point by point.

You said:

1) "But rationally, I cannot understand what the State of Israel is doing. It is not logical for a people that has suffered so much to be so completely blind to other people's suffering.
I assume that you are referring to the 'suffering' of the Arabs, some of whom call themselves 'Palestinians' (there was never a sovereign nation called Palestine, with a culture and language of its own. Anybody living in that region could be called a 'Palestinian'). Read more...


Why I made aliyah and G-d willing, will again...
posted by Lady-Light

As per West Bank Mama's request for people's stories on why they made Aliyah, I am honored to be included in the group, even though after four years in Israel our family made 'yiridah' back to the States. So technically, we are currently not living in Israel, although four of our children are.

OK, here goes. Here goes a feeble attempt to verbalize and express a lifetime of hashkafa, a lifetime of an inexplicable love of Ivrit, a lifetime of longing and yearning for - I still can't put it into words; a certain hagshama of everything I had been taught in school and raised on at home.
