We’re on our way to the Promised Land!
Tonight is Seder night! If we manage to survive the overeating planned for the next few days, our next post will be on Wednesday Night.
We would like to wish all our readers, along with all of Klal Yisrael, a Chag Kasher V’sameach – a Happy and Kosher Pesach. May we all merit to celebrate in rebuilt Jerusalem speedily in our days.
חג פסח כשר ושמח
We at EY have never turned a blind eye to human rights issues in and around Israel. We also strive to expose as much of the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic propaganda as we can find. As for this anger issue, it’s obvious that either you have no understanding of the current situation or that you are a victim of anti-Israel propaganda.
While Jews are being harassed and murdered by hate-filled Palestinians, Israel has built field hospitals in the Golan to treat Syrian civilians – whose identities are protected so that they aren’t ostracized or murdered by their Syrian neighbors for dealing in a human manner with the “Zionist Entity”. Palestinian children from Judea and Samaria and from Gaza are regularly treated in Israeli hospitals. Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh’s brother-in-law and his granddaughter have both been treated in Israeli hospitals. Haniyeh regularly calls for and promises a Jewish genocide.
If by Jews being “angry” you mean Israel defending itself against its genocidal enemies, then I suppose you will continue in your misguided thought. You need to recognize though, that all of the hatred and all of the anger comes from the Palestinians and their allies who can’t stand the fact that a tiny Jewish nation is audacious enough to thrive, is strong enough to defend itself, and is successful enough to show, in comparison, how backward and barbaric the surrounding Islamic nations are. And just how are these nations treating their Palestinian “refugees”?
“Tell me what you accuse the Jews of. I’ll tell you what you’re guilty of.”
Every day that the People of Israel return and rebuild their homeland is another miracle.
Rare photos of Second Aliyah
I found these photos of the Second Aliyah in, of all places, an Iraq news website.
Many of the images seem to have been taken from this 2010 post. But others I cannot find anywhere else on the web.
The sepia-colored ones at the end were taken by Ya’acov Ben Dov, and published in Vienna in 1912
These pioneers were building Israel in 1946. It is now 2014 and we are still building!
The Jewish people are rooted in Israel. No matter how hard you try, We shall never be uprooted.
