Israel Forever

leave a comment »


The Golan Heights should be a part of Israel forever. Whatever the problems of socialism there, property rights are clearly more secure than in Syria. As you look at this, guess what is Israel and what is Syria (hint: Israel is Green and Syria is not). Posted by Picasa

U.S. Jewish group touts Israeli citizenship for Diaspora Jews

leave a comment »

Interesting article in Haaretz , ‘U.S. Jewish group touts Israeli citizenship for Diaspora Jews.’ Being fresh back from Israel, I have to say I like it and would do it. I would have to brush up on my Hebrew, but the required one-week military training and $1,000 investment would make for an easy decision. Sign me up.

I returned from two weeks in Israel this weekend. It was awesome. Part of the time I was with a tour group. Here are some people dancing on an evening cruise on Lake Kinneret. Posted by Picasa
