Batya Medad
New York-born Batya Medad made aliyah with her husband just weeks after their 1970 wedding and has been living in Shiloh since 1981. Political pundit, with a unique perspective, Batya has worked in a variety of professions: teaching, fitness, sales, cooking, public relations, photography and more. She has a B.S. in Journalism, is a licensed English Teacher specializing as a remedial teacher and for a number of years has been studying Tanach (Bible) in Matan. Batya blogs on Shiloh Musings and A Jewish Grandmother. ...

For many years, Israeli politicians have been trying verbal acrobatics and contortions, teasing the world with promises to work for a Pseudistinian State, claiming that:

"No problem. The Arabs will never agree to our conditions."

"Remember when Ehud Barak was Prime Minister, he offered the Arabs over 90%, and they said no."

"Don't worry."

"Trust us."

Sorry, but I disagree. I consider it playing with fire.

It reminds of me of the old joke, variously attributed to George Bernard Shaw or Winston Churchill and Lady Astor.

“My Dear,” said the gentleman to the lady, “would you go to bed with me for a million dollars?”

“Well, yes, I suppose I would,” she replied.

“Here’s $100. Let’s go then.”

“How dare you! What kind of person do you think I am?”

“My Dear, we have already established that. Now we are merely haggling over the price!”

And another dangerous game Israel is playing is having a Deputy Foreign Minister, Daniel "Danny" Ayalon, who is married to  an Evangelical Christian.  I wish I was kidding.  Read all about it!
