      Shiloh Musings

      Peace? Get Real!

      The Jewish People are now in the crucial time between Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur.  It's our last chance before G-d seals the Book of Life for the upcoming year.  Our family has, bli eyin haraa (keep away the evil eye) started the year well, Thank G-d.

      You may enjoy reading the latest Kosher Cooking Carnival, a monthly round-up of internet articles about all aspects of Kashrut, kosher food.  And of course, please visit my other blogs, Shiloh Musings and me-ander which are updated more frequently. 

      We must pray for wisdom, for us and those running the Israeli Government.

      Peace? Get Real!

      There are too many lies clouding people's minds.  This sort of New York Times pro-Muslim propaganda reminds me of the joke about the person who murdered his parents and then asked the court for mercy, because he was orphaned.  It's full of lies and distortions.

      While Israel marches blindly into the snare of "negotiations," the Arab terrorists continue to attack us.  Get real!  What's the point?  You can't "make peace" with people who want to annihilate you, so why hasn't the Israeli Government told Obama, Clinton, Blair etc to get packing and leave us alone?  Instead, Israel is considering yet more suicidal "gestures" to the terrorists.




      All those smiles make me very nervous.  They remind me of Little Red Ridinghood's wolf!

      What will it take for our Israeli politicians to wise up and face reality.  That's no grannie in bed!
