Year in Review

Last year I did my first year in review.  I think its now about time to recap the year...and WHAT a year it was!

The year started with Chris and I planning our trip to Israel.  That seemed to be the running theme for most of the year!  That was absolutely the running thread.   Israel Israel ISRAEL!!!!

Anyway, the year seemed to drag on...so slow up until September.  The girls did less clips...and now no more new clips.  There was the stresses of personal lives...that seemed to start the beginning of the year...but also the highlight of increasing phone contact with Lital...from my first call on Christmas Day 2007 up until the trip.  

Then FINALLY September came..and being all giddy with excitement at my first international travel.   Shawn adding himself to our plans at nearly the last minute...and trying to find a way to get the most out of the trip. With the little time we had.

The bittersweetness of landing in Lod....knowing that a lifetime of expectation and over a year of planning was going to be over in little over two weeks...   Meeting Lital, Yair, Adi and making new friends there.was BEYOND amazing!!!  Not to mention the euphoric 8th day...LOL When we had our tour of the Galilee, Golan, dinner and drinks with Adi and May...and later even more drinks with Lital.....That was it...man...that truly was it.  That was the highlight of the trip.

Then coming back and getting back into the daily grind...LOL yeah that was a let down...but the desire to go back and to live there permanently has NOT diminished one ounce...since I have been back.  And, that seems to be my goal....to get back to Israel.   

So now...the year winds down...far differently than last year...no more new clips from the girls....the trip complete....Israel in a war.....Obama President....LOL  Honestly I have no idea where the next year will go.  But, hopefully the highs will be just as enjoyable as they were this year and the lows not so bad and easily overcome. 

I just hope everyone is safe, secure and has a prosperous new year!

a Truce - are you fucking kidding me?

Haartz is reporting a possible 48 hour truce on Israel's side.

If this happens - and my G-d I hope it doesn't - but if it does...Israel deserves to lose. 

There is no fucking way Israel should do something so civilized as to reward these barbarians with a lull in fighting.  FUCK!!! It's bad enough that Israel has allowed over 100 trucks of supplies to be sent into Gaza

Can you imagine this - WWII....US troops are fighting in the Ardennes forest in the Battle of the Bulge....but instead of us supplying our troops...we send 100 trucks with supplies to GERMANY?  WTF logic is this!  Fucking idiots!

You win wars by making the enemy scream UNCLE...and beg to stop..not by giving supplies to your enemies!

Now this shit about a truce?  Fuck does anyone in Israel know how to win a war anymore?  All this does is put more Israeli lives in danger because we all know Hamas wont stop firing those rockets!  Shit they haven't stopped firing them now!  Nor did they during the ceasefire!  No - what Israel needs to do is to invade with ground forces and beat Hamas so badly...so utterly...so convincingly that Hamas begs for peace.  BEAT THE WAR OUT OF THEM.  It is the only thing those fucking terrorists there understand.

Another blog to add

About the war is our old favorite!

Mererhetoric.com

You know the old Tasha and Dishka friday site!  He is completely obliterating Hamas's and the UN's complete and bogus lies about what is going on there. 

Add Omri to your reading list about the latest goings on in the Chanukkah war!

Support Israeli Troops

There are a wide variety of organizations to donate money too that will help those soldiers in the front lines.

My favorite is pizza for the IDF.  They directly give food and drinks to those front line units and can make a huge difference in morale.

You can help individual soldiers - if you can only donate a few dollars or you can give assistance to an entire company of troops!!

This is mainly for Chris and Shawn

Now that you guys have been to Israel...

Has your perspective changed in regards to what goes on there?  The war(s)?   Have your feelings changed?  Why?

The Curious Case of Benjiman Buttons

Very good flick!!

This is the Brad Pitt movie where he ages in reverse.  It was very interesting and for a near 3 hour movie did not seem very long.  It had a Meet Joe Black sort of feel to it. 

And his character sort of reminded me in a way like Forrest Gump, interestingly enough - I think it was because of his accent (from New Orleans) but if you see the flick you will know what I mean.

This is definitely on the DVD buy list.

Chanukkah War

Has started!

Israel has sort of re-entered Gaza!  FUCKING FINALLY! 

Drudge has it that this is the worst day for the Paleoanimals in 20 years...I wish it was so!  Now Hamas states that they are about to unleash hell!  So be it.  Israel should start dropping MOABS all over Gaza and we will see what happens then! 

Honestly, I don't want this to escalate but it fucking needs to.  Israel needs to fight with both arms fully free to deal with this continual crap.  Israel has a right to defend itself and Gaza deserves to reap what it has continually sown!
