The Islamists, the rioters under the guidance of Sheikh Ra'as Salah, those who would deny Jews rights of freedom of access and worship through violence, now banned from Jerusalem for 180 days and no closer than 30 kilometers, have a new symbol - four upraised fingers.

It may be signifying the four colors of the flag of their nationalism.

In any case. they remind us that we, too, have symbols.

We have 3 Patriarchs, 4 Matriarchs, 10 Commandments, 13 Principles of Faith and many others.

And 1 homeland.

May the coming New Year bless us with achievement, with spiritual enrichment, with security and with success in all our personal and national endeavors.
