Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #99-Old and New

As places go, the United States isn't very old, only about 250 years old.  You have to travel to Europe or Asia to find really old artifacts.  One of the best places to find old construction is the State of Israel.  Itself, it is pretty new, having been founded in 1948. But the Covenant from …

In honor of Chanukah, pictures of Israel

This week marks the holiday of Chanukah, and the victory of the Maccabees over the Greek desecrators of the Temple.  The ancient Jews, fighting for their homeland, were fierce warriors, who were not finally defeated until the Romans did so in 70AD with the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem.  Here are some pictures …

A Post for Jerusalem Day

And what is "Jerusalem Day", you ask?  It is a holiday in the State of Israel, celebrating the 51st anniversary of the Jewish Liberation of Jerusalem, uniting it as one city, the GREATEST City, in the State of Israel.  And our President Donald Trump has given the Jewish people of Israel another great gift this …

The Intelligence Operative’s Children

I am very fond of Daniel Silva's thrillers, about his Hero, Israeli Intelligence Operative (and now head honcho), Gabriel Allon.  Gabriel has worked tirelessly for his country, eliminating terrorists of every stripe, all over the world.  His first wife, Leah, who for years has lived in a psychiatric hospital in Israel, was made insane by …

Year-End Photo Challenge: Resilient Jews

My People, The Jews, are the most resilient people there are.  We are Creators and scholars, in Science, Medicine, The Law, and Business.  The Jews have survived attempted genocide at the hands of the Romans.  (Just look at what the Roman Empire became-Italy now is a basket-case in Europe, as is Greece.) Yet, We Survive, …

Photo Challenge…Quest…For My People

I am a Jew.  In 2007, I went to Israel with Michael Medved.  For me, it was a quest, to see where my people originated. At Masada, dozens of my ancestors committed suicide, rather than submit to being conquered by the Romans.  I felt very close to them when we went there.  Those were My …

Weekly Photo Challenge…Harmony…My Heritage in Pictures, and Music

In 2007, my husband and I went to Israel with Michael Medved and his family (he is based and broadcasts from KTTH 770 Radio in Seattle).  One morning, I took a solitary walk to the Old City in Jerusalem, and visited the Western (Wailing) Wall, the remaining remnant of the Second Temple.  Jews come here …

What the Mainstream Media Keep from You-The Iran Deal

So, what do you think of the "deal" the Obama Administration has "negotiated" with Iran (the world's greatest sponsor of terrorism)?  The people whose opinions I value most ALL think this will be detrimental to world order, arm more terrorists who shout "Death to America!", start a Middle East nuclear arms race, and spell the …
