Baruch Dayan HaEmet - Blessed is the True Judge.

This is the blessing said upon hearing the news of someone's death.

About 11:10 AM this morning (Friday), RivkA passed away.

Funeral plans are in the process, and we'll post them as soon as we know.

May RivkA's family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
As we were preparing the Shabbos meal this morning, we had some questions.

What do non-Jews eat in their chicken soup if they don't have Matzoh balls and Kreplach?

And what do they put in their Chulent if they don't have Kishke?

Shabbat Shalom

"This march is a provocative march," Hasan Sanallah of the Islamic Movement told CNN.
"This is a march for inciting violence.
They are coming here to show that the Arab minorities in Israel are barbaric, and we want to prove them the other way.

You guys are doing a wonderful job of proving that.

Quite hypocritically the state of Israel will grant defacto ownership over State land in Judea and Samaria, if an Arab manages to work the land for a few years without getting stopped. A Jew gets no such benefit.

If a Jew works state land for a few years, the state will generally recognize the produce and trees as belonging to the Jew, but unlike with an Arab, the land ownership will never get transferred over.

Right outside of the town of Elazar there is a lot of State land. Land that is untouched, undeveloped, and at risk.

Arabs regularly try to encroach on this land to begin farming, hoping that in a few years they will be able to claim it as theirs. The Leftists help them with this game.

Meanwhile, Jewish farmers are planting on land all around Elazar. Not for personal benefit. Not because they will get the land. But because this action simply blocks it from being handed over to the Arabs in a few years time.

Nadia Matar (among others) is leading a fight to protect this state land with the hope that in a few years time the state land will still remain state land and the town of Elazar will be able to expand onto it.

And this battle isn't just happening around Elazar, but around other towns as well.

And this farming project is definitely not simple.

The Arabs regularly come and rip up the plants, destroy the olive trees, destroy the water pipes, burn the fields, and steal whatever they can.

The leftists at the scene always call the police, instigate, and do whatever they can to try to help the Arabs steal the land, telling them to claim it is their private land.

But the Jewish farmers are smart. Each one comes armed with detailed maps showing that the land is state land. Once faced with irrefutable evidence the police and army always back down. Though the Arabs and Leftists still walk free.

Will the state destroy these Jewish farms? Perhaps, but the Jewish communities won't take it lying down. If the state destroys the Jewish farms exclusively, they plan to take action to force the government, whether it likes it or not, to do the same to the illegal Arab farms.

The question is, how far does the government want to go?

The news over the past few days has been about Israel requiring newly naturalized citizens to swear an oath accepting Israel as a "Jewish and Democratic state".

The oath has raised a tremendous amount of criticism from those on the political left.

Apparently there is a lot of confusion and misinformation about the term. We've put together this pop quiz to see what you know about Israel as a "Jewish and Democratic state".

We will be displaying the results (and supplying the right answers) in a few days.

Please respond only once as this isn't a poll to convince anyone that you have the majority on your side, it's a poll to see what everyone knows.

Ahmedijinidad (who cares how you spell it) is planning to visit Israel's border to throw stones at us.

For some reason I was thinking about those "what if" science fiction stories, where the question is asked, "WHAT IF... someone killed Hitler before he rose to power?" and similar scenarios.

After all, if this genocidal maniac is standing open and clear on our border, wouldn't you rather read 50 years from now a "What if" story that asked, "What if Ahmedijinidad wasn't shot on Israel's border after he called for the elimination of the Jewish state?" than the alternative?

Food for thought.

Insiders are saying that Bibi is going to extend the freeze 2 more months, starting very, very soon.

I hope they're wrong.
