In this video, Israel welcomes a master graffiti artist while the Palestinian Authority refuses to grant him entry.
All he is trying to do is introduce graffiti art to brighten up people's lives. Hear his powerful message on this video.
When King David wanted to express in his poetic prose how the Jewish People would return to Zion after prolonged exile in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and Toronto etc., he chose a specific natural phenomenon to convey the image of mass return: k'afikim banegev like a flash flood in the Negev (Psalms .126:4 Metzudot commentary).
This video of a flash flood in the Negev earlier this is a must see. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO
The Jewish Town of Bet El, located just outside of Ramallah, has launched three separate public building initiatives in the last three weeks: 1) an 18-unit housing project in the Hasmonean Neighborhood, 2) a 30-unit housing project of replacement homes for the 30 units taken down on the Ulpana Hill last year, and 3) a new multi-million dollar Bet Midrash (House of Study) for the Bet El Yeshiva Center.
The "Green Line" is the pre-1967 border of the State of Israel, and "crossing it" means going into the ancient Jewish regions of Judea and Samaria, AKA the West Bank.
And apparently is does make one's bowel movement more odorous, this according to the Sept. 30, 2013 PNN ( Palestine News Network) Headline : Israel Uses Settler Feces as Bio-Warfare.
Here is a quote from the article:
The Israeli army has developed a large vehicle for spraying sewage waste and feces at Palestinian protestors and homes, reportedly, in the towns of Abu Dis, Aizariah, Bil’in and Nabi Saleh.
Spraying sewage waste has become so common a weapon used by the Israeli Army that the combination of sewage water, feces, and human urine has been named “skunk”. B'Tselem reports that ‘skunk’ and the vehicle used to disperse it, have been added to Israel's armory for crowd control.

Here's a short youtube about the skunk mixture.
In 1995, I attended the funeral of the great Torah sage of Israel Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach. An estimated 300,000 attended. I thought there would never be another funeral like it.
Tonight, I participated in the funeral of the great Sephardic Torah sage Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef. Police estimate that 600,000 people attended. Can you imagine one tenth of the population of a country attending a funeral? One tenth of Israel’s Jews made their way to Jerusalem to pay respects to one of the greatest Torah sages of the generation.
Rabbi Auerbach was a Rabbi of yeshivas, of learners of Torah. Rabbi Ovadiah touched the common man - the working class. While his Torah writings and halachic decisions are studied in every yeshiva in the world, he spoke to “amcha” – the people on the street.
That’s why amcha came out this evening to attend his funeral alongside all the yeshivas which emptied out to honor Rabbi Ovadiah’s last journey to his final place of rest.
One of his sons told the following story:
“When Abba (Dad) was 79-years-old, he suffered his first heart attack.
