The Real View from Israel

Here is the link to an essay by Ricochet Contributor Judith Levy.  She is in Israel, where rockets rain down on her family and friends daily.  If you can read this without weeping, you have no heart.  And if you can read this without getting very, very angry, you have no soul.  I am sitting …
