I don't yet have time for a very detailed report on the Jerusalem Conference, so let this illustrated post suffice.
Here's one of the charts, from an Arab internet site, shown during the talk by Lt. Colonel (res) Jonathan D. Halevi, Senior Researcher, Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. We're just not "on the ball" when it comes to utilizing modern technology.
Yes, it's hard to believe. Aren't Jews supposed to be so smart? Well, it looks like we're not using our G-d-given talents for our own needs.Here are a couple of scenes from the opening night. Apparently I missed some very interesting statements yesterday morning when I was on my Matan Tour, which I'll bli neder blog about later.
It was during the session called, Israel under Attack, and the Civilians of the Gaza Area Respond. Sharon Katz, of Voices Magazine, told me that the crowd was incredulous. Politicians, from southern Israel, who spoke "crowned" their remarks with support for Disengagement.
It's very disappointing, though not surprising, that Left wing politicians are so glued to their ideology that they can't see the terror and hatred through their Left-tinted lenses.
