Batya Medad made aliya from New York to Israel in 1970 and has been living in Shiloh since 1981. Recently she began organizing women's visits to Tel Shiloh for Psalms and prayers. (For more information, please email her.) Batya is a newspaper and magazine columnist, a veteran jblogger and recently stopped EFL teaching. She's also a wife, mother, grandmother, photographer and HolyLand hitchhiker, always seeing things from her own very unique perspective. For more of Batya's writings and photos, check out:
Tammuz 25, 5769, 7/17/2009
A couple of reminders: I generally blog daily on Shiloh Musings and Me-ander. Second, please don't forget that this coming Wednesday is Rosh Chodesh Av. G-d willing, there will be women's prayers, (individual, not faux male) prayers at Tel Shiloh, 9:30 am.
All this "Iron Dome" stuff is just typical of the pathetic, misguided ghetto mentality which dominates Israeli and Jewish socio-political-philosophy. An "Iron Dome" isn't the solution to the Arab attacks on southern Israel.
We have to destroy all the rocket launchers and their production sites. Otherwise their technology will continue to improve, and more and more of Israel will be vulnerable to attack by the Arab terrorists on our borders.
We must cease all support for increased Arab sovereignty (two state solution.) If things are bad now, they will only get worse if there's a sic "Palestinian" State.
The Pseudistinians are a modern invention to destroy Israel. There never was such a people. They have no history. They were invented to counter the Balfour Declaration, which gave modern international diplomatic "rights" for a Jewish Homeland.
Actually, we never needed anyone's approval. The Jewish People and Nation long precede Great Britain.
We won't have peace and quiet until we stop looking to the world for support!
Shabbat Shalom u'Mevorach
May You Have A Peaceful and Blessed Shabbat
