she LIVES in Israel; your post indicates you live in South Africa, the former next to the last bastion of apartheid. You chide Esther for her honest first hand observations, yet you are not there facing any dangers or hostility. If your grandson is in the IDF, I presume her comments extend to his safety and wellbeing as well as her fellow Jews. Well, with all due respect, every time a poster from Israel points out the reality of the situation, somebody else Jewish, usually not on the front lines, chides and berates them. Pretty sad, really, cause Esther's realistic approach is what will save Israel, not your stated unrealistic dreams, and from South Africa yet! Regards.
