Israel is beleaguered right now. If you want a good rundown, just read today’s Commentary Contentions posts, which cover everything from the ambush planned for Netanyahu, to the insanity of Obama’s nuclear plan (which hits Israel, which is not a nuclear treaty signatory, so it is a US target), to the university ban on researchers from the Dimona reactor (but keep sending those guys from Iran please).
Here’s a feel-good idea, one that won’t change anything, but that will make Israel supporters feel less alone: On April 19, change your facebook profile picture to an Israeli flag for at least 24 hours. I’m actually going to do it today, since I’ll forget by April 19. I’d love to open facebook that day and see a sea of White and Blue Israeli flags.
Also, please forgive me for my shallow posts on a deep news day. It takes me a little while to assimilate all the bad stuff that’s coming down, so I’m reading and thinking, rather than writing.
