Life Lessons with Judy Simon
Yehudit Tayar lives with her family in Bet Horon in the Benjamin Region for over 30 years, serves as an emergency first response medic, sits on the Board of Directors of Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron,and is one of the spokespeople of the Jewish pioneers in Yesha.
There is a saying; "truth is in the eyes of the beholder". How appropriate this is in the reality of our lives here in our Land. While indeed we must worry about the situation in Iran, Syria and Egypt we must never forget the true situation here inside of Israel.
The continuous deliberate decision of Israeli governments to ignore official statements and directives of the Palestinian Authority to praise terrorists encourage violence and call murderers "martyrs" is at least if not more worrisome than nuclear bombs.
We don't have to wait for the bombs to burst- daily we see the huge rocks aimed at us, the attempts to stab or shoot us - whether civilians or military. We have learned to live in the shadow of the truth of Oslo - the true situation of the violence directed both verbally and physically against Israel. We have continued to raise our families and build our lives in the heartland of Israel- knowing that this is our eternal right and recognizing that our very presence is the best protection that Israel can get.
We anticipate that the Israeli government will finally recognize the truth and respond in kind - and protect the future of our people in our Land by annexing lawfully the heartland of Israel - Yesha and proudly stating to the world that we are here to stay and that this is in actuality the true path to ending the violence directed against us- to declare that Israel is not on the chopping block for a mockery of negotiations.
It is little known that we, emergency immediate response medics not only get called up to rescue Israeli civilians or military personal- but also our neighbors within the PA villages. To us human life is important and has no borders. Why is it no publically reported? It is much more convenient to lable us "settlers" as radicals than to be truthful - the problem is not with our presence in Yesha for the official "Tourist maps" of the PA include all of Israel as Palestine.
Wake up Israel. See the truth and fulfill your obligation to ensure the safety and integrity of our Nation and our Land.
