Tamar Yonah hosts the most popular English speaking radio talk-show in Israel: 'The Tamar Yonah Show'. She informs people of the political changes taking place in the world and how it affects us. Tamar covers the news, as well as interviews respected authors, journalists, and politicians. You'll be exposed to the burning issues facing Israel and be able to call into the show. Tamar is the daughter of a Holocaust survivor. Her father survived the Nazi brutalities and after liberation, made his way to the shores of the British Palestine Mandate, where again fighting for his survival, fought in Israel's war of Independence. This made a great impression on her life and she too has been fighting for Israel by serving in the Israeli army & air force, and afterwards by becoming an activist for Israel and the Jewish nation.

Sometimes I have items I want to post that don't really deserve to take up a whole blog entry. I have decided to post them as add-ons. That means, that you should should check my blogs frequently, as I will be adding on items to the present blog (last blog posted) and you may not want to miss these little gems. I will also be making a 'Reader's Corner' where, if you have any pearls you'd like to send me, I can post them. One reader, Dan from Herzelia, often sends me quite funny tid bits where he writes satires on today's news. I will be posting them there as well. Please participate and send me your own, and I can then post them if appropriate.
Now, for some fun. These are some things I thought up, and would love for you to send me your own.

Palestinian delegation no-shows in Annapolis

Car-parts harvesting season begins in the Palestinian Authority, but ...
The car-parts harvesting season, one of the important events in life-cycle of the Palestinians, begins this week in the Palestinian Authority, when every night Arab youths go into Jewish cities and "liberate" the parts from the automobiles of the Zionist occupiers and sell them to the chop-shops in Hevron.
However it will not be a festive day for Shareef Omar, 65, of Kalkiliya, and manager of a car-parts harvesting business. His sons will not be able to work at the Palestinians' traditional livelihood because they will be stopped by the fence or security barrier.
