…That means the perpetrators of the campaign are rigorously blind to the beauty of the Jewish people’s reencounter with its roots, digging deep in long-abandoned ground and finding… itself. Peace will come when Islam as a whole can acknowledge other loci of light, all having the same source even if filtered through different prisms.

This year Israel received a wonderful New Year’s (Rosh Hashanah) gift from a team of archeologists led by Eilat Mazar.
She announced that, at the foot of the Temple Mount, the team had found a large gold medallion, “remarkably well kept and glittering,” with reliefs of a seven-branched menorah, a shofar, and a Torah—timeless fundaments of Judaism well familiar in Israel and much of the Jewish world today.

The United States of America is a Constitutional REPRESENTATIVE Republic. That is your constituency MUST be taken into consideration when Congressmen and Senators vote, not backroom deals promising favors meant to advance careers.
I should not be reduced to begging or pleading with elected officials to listen to the American public, but sadly that is where we are at.
Instead of pleading and begging, I’m asking all elected officials to think far into the future and to realize just how this will impact the United States of America. Think about how this will change the landscape of this great country. Think about the future of the next generation, being saddled with debt to cover these pet projects. Think about grandma being ‘wheeled over the cliff,’ because that will indeed happen after the death panels are put in place.
Obamacare is not only a job killer it’s a country killer.
