Israel's song entry for the Eurovision got nixed.
Because part of the song was missing from this tech failure, the Israel Broadcast Authority's delegation to the contest requested that we either be allowed to perform the song again or be given additional points to make up for the lapse. The European Broadcasting Union denied our request.
And so, Israel is erased from the competition. I wonder if this same technical glitch happened to England or Germany, what the Eurovision judges would do? I doubt they would 'Push the button' on them!

Never mind the Arab terrorists. It's the horrid Jewish settlers that are at fault again... and the government won't stand for it.
Remains of the bulldozed visitors' tent at the Sulam Yaakov Farm
Just one day after the country celebrated Israel's 59th Independence Day, specialy trained police forces (Yassam-nikim) and army came with a bulldozer and destroyed a lone tent-like shelter built for visitors at the Sulam Yaakov Farm, 10 kilometers (6 miles) north of Jerusalem.
The farm, built together by a few families from the village of Kochav Yaakov, once served as a petting zoo with goats and other farm animals. Groves of olive trees were also planted on the site to help restore the land of Israel. Shmuel and Sarah Rachmani, former residents of Kochav Yaakov, live on the Sulam Yaakov (Jacob's Ladder) Farm today, with their children. But the roar of the bulldozer, the crashing of the structure and the show of police force on the farm has traumatized this peaceful pioneer family.

The Sulam Yaakov Farm overlooks an important road which leads to the Jewish communities of Psagot and Kochav Yaakov (seen in the background of above photo). Jewish presence on this hill is neccessary to help maintain security, and to keep Arab terror at bay. It helps to distance any terrorist acts like sniper shootings at families traveling to and from their homes in the nearby Jewish communities. Before there was Jewish presence there, Arabs would come in from a few kilometers away to destroy and pull up all that was planted.

Some of the questions that need to be asked here are:
3) How much money was spent to finance this fiasco? Dozens of police and security men were The government needed to pay dozens of security forces for this senseless action, in addition to hiring a bulldozer to come all the way out there and bulldoze some aluminum walls and some wooden posts.
Sulam Yaakov. "Almost' in the middle of nowhere.
Our government leaders show restraint and patience towards terrorists, but lack the same tolerance and restraint for Jewish needs. I guess the terrorists, and the Palestinian Authority that funds and protects them, are not dangerous, but synagogues on farms overlooking Jewish access roads are.
Jewish buildings must be destroyed, and not be tolerated. Terror can.

This 'California Girl' (me) is not a prude. I grew up in the land of sun and fun. There is a time and place for being care-free and then a time for using your brains. What I saw taking place in downtown Jerusalem this last week really was not only embarrassing, but worrying.
University Tuition Demo
It was Wednesday, and I was at one of the busiest meeting places in Jerusalem, "Zion Square". It's the place where the busiest street in Jerusalem (Jaffa Street) hooks up with a pedestrian mall. I went there to meet family who were visiting from California.
University Demo - Jslm
The reason these women were dancing was of course obvious.... it was a student demonstration against a proposed hike in university tuitions. The two go together, don't they? Angry students who want an education, and dancing in skin tight clothing, gyrating in a very public square. They were part of a nationwide organization representing university students who launched an open-ended boycott of classes, in an effort to force the government to reduce tuition and increase the budget for higher education. The students were upset about a possible hike in tuition. A pledge to lower tuition fees at Israeli universities by 50 percent was made by a previous government headed by PM Ehud Barak in 2001.
