Sixty years ago the U.N. General Assembly ratified a plan to partition what was left of Palestine and establish a Palestinian Jewish state and another Palestinian Arab state.

The Jews accepted the 1947 U.N. decision. The Arabs overwhelmingly rejected it. The Jews of Palestine have been battling for their existence ever since. (They had already been battling for some time.)

An inspiring message (to me) from an Israeli writer, sent to me by a friend:

I didn't change or stop doing anything I used to do before this mess began!

People tend to forget that twice the casualties From terror get killed on the roads!

More people still die From heart attack, cancer, And other things, They just don't show them on TV.

Don't misunderstand me, There is a war going on, It's not pleasant, But, lets face it:

WE HAVE NEVER BEEN BETTER OFF!!  More >

"All writing should be selection in order to drop every dead word. Why do you not save out of your speech or thinking only the vital things—the spirited mot which amused or warmed you when you spoke it—because of its luck & newness........"  More >
