Eretz Yisrael Time

It's going to be Israel's 60th birthday. The Knesset decided on the logo below as the symbol for the year.

Not to affect the vote (see below), but I like it. Shas Minister Yitzchak Cohen doesn't like it (he thinks the kid needs a haircut).

Personally I think it needs a little orange, but it's nice that they decided to use a Na'ar Hagivaot (Settler) for the child.

Frankly, I am in no mood to participate in any "official" government-organized festivities. The flag they will fly is the flag they flew over the army camps where the soldiers who destroyed Gush Katif were based, and it was sown on their uniforms in order to intimidate their victims in the yishuvim. Since then, I am not able to fly the flag. Not because I agree with the anti-Zionist religious who call it a "shmatta", but rather because the post-Zionist regime in power hijacked and desecrated that powerful symbol that inspired generations of Jews during the worst periods like the Shoah. I will fly it again when there is a Jewish/Zionist gov't in power here, something that doesn't seem to be on the horizon for many, many years.
When the 60'th anniversary comes up, I will give thanks in my own way, in my shul, but I will not attend any events presided over by a repulsive man of no principles and no Jewish/Zionist identity who ordered police to beat up children along with decorated soldiers at Amona because spin-meisters like Reuven Adler it would help his election chances (it actually hurt them). The regime in power every day communicates its hatred for me and everything I and hundreds of thousands of others of faithful Jews believe in, so I can not participate in any sort of grotesque Hellenistic ceremonies they are cooking up.

At first glance I thought it to be an armadillo. It wasn't only til later I saw the "60".
