      I am a resident of Shiloh, with my wife and children, and now grandchildren, since 1981, having come on Aliyah in 1970.  I have served in a volunteer capacity as a Yesha Council spokesperson, twice a member of Amana's secretariat, Benjamin Regional Council plenum member and mayor of Shiloh.  I was a parliamentary aide for Geula Cohen and two other MKs, an advisor to a Minister, vice-chairman and executive director of Israel's Media Watch and currently, am Information and Content Resource coordinator for the Begin Heritage Center.

      Can Jews Be Special?

      We read that yesterday,, in deliberating Arab claims to property in South Hebron Hills that

          The state also wanted to make a presentation showing that the petitioners had not lived at the site before it was declared a firing zone in 1980, but Grunis suggested that instead the state go to mediation because this was “a special case.”

      So the High Court of Justice has become a mediation forum.  The law is to be tempered.

      Will Amona so benefit?

      Are - or rather can - Jews be special?
