Israel, much like the fortress of Tel-Chai that Jospeh Trumpeldor fought to defend against Arab conquerors in 1920, finds itself beseiged by enemies both within and without. Terrorists, would-be friends inside and outside Israel, and even bad government officials. Here are the discussions of one proud Zionist resident on the state of the nation and abroad.
Modiin Illit's biased Haredi mayor led to rift with main Modiin
In this item on The Forward, it's told how the Haredi residents of Modiin Illit caused a needless rift with the main Modiin, which is mainly non-Haredi in residents, first by attempting to dominate Anabe Park during the Succot holiday with their segregationist mindset, and then by declaring an archaeological site over in Illit off-limits to non-Haredi visitors.
I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
