      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.

      Is It The Spelling or Has It Been Removed?

      Where did the term "terror" and "terrorist" go?


      Is that term in the dictionary anymore?

      It's not difficult to spell and it fits easily into a headline.

      Why do I ask?

      Read this:-

      [today's] incident occurred less than a week after a nine-year-old Israeli girl was stabbed as she played in her garden in the West Bank settlement of Psagot, near Ramallah.
      Police are treating that attack, on Saturday, as a militant action and are still searching for the perpetrator.
      Last month an Israeli soldier was shot dead in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, in what the army believes was a Palestinian sniper attack, although no suspects have been arrested.


      I guess someone censored their dictionaries?

      Control the speak, you control the mind.

      P.S.  This:-

                     Control the speak, you control the mind.

      may be my creation.

      I found this: “But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.”  (― George Orwell, 1984 )  and this: “It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.” (― George Orwell, 1984 ) and this: “Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.” (― George Orwell, 1984 ) and this: “We do not merely destroy our enemies; we change them.” (― George Orwell, 1984) but I think mine is, well, all mine.
