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:
I don't feel reassured by the statement:
I feel insulted. What is the United States, some manipulating "sugar daddy?" And what is this "qualitative edge?" Is it that some American Defense and State Department bureaucrats get the right to decide just how many weapons Israel and our Arab enemies get to have what they consider a "fair" or "safe for whom" fight, which in the end will preserve what American politicians and civil servants consider the proper status quo? Again, I repeat:
I don't like this! I can't accept it!It's dangerous for the continued security and existence for the State of Israel. The entire idea that a foreign country can control our defense/military capabilities is outrageous! I'd say it's immoral for the Israeli Government to accept such a thing. And in all honesty, I'd say that this relinquishing of the foundation of independence is treasonous. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
