    We can't save ourselves by being naked. If you examine today's Anti-Semites, all they do is look at us naked. If being naked would mean becoming invisible, I would be all for it. But that's what people that hate us do. They try to see us naked so they can point us out. Let's face it. We survived Hitler but now it appears we have stepped from the frying pan into the fire. So now what do we do? We're going to have to think about this very hard Bradley. Very hard! You get one; maybe two chances. Now this is three. Now think! What is the greatest lesson we ever learned? I'm thinking. This isn't easy. Mmm? That we can only depend on ourselves . Now in a global situation, it's a little different. There are self interests. That's when it becomes tricky. I think you may have a point. You're saying that Israel needs to prove to the rest of the World that it can function. That if it can function, that it's worth saving. I think it's even bigger than that. I think Israel may have to convince the rest of the World, that the World cannot function without Israel. We don't have a choice. We'll have to be able to prove it. I know you've all been doing that. This stuff with the spitting and the gender segregation will pass. My problem is with the injuries. The enemies look so dark now. What a waste if there is anything that compares us with them. Huh?

What division? Jews united over Iran deal

Not only are left and right in Israel united in opposition to Obama's compact of appeasement; the deal has made bedfellows of an astonishing array of Jewish organizations in America.

Palestinian workers stand under a shelter

You love Israel and hate occupation. What do you do?

There's a certain freedom in a time of extremism and obsession and chaos. Freedom to chart a new course. Freedom to love Israel. Freedom to help undo what it's done in your name.

How Isaiah gave Hebrew its word for vagina

If St Jerome and other experts are right, Israelis may have thought that 'pot' meant vulva, but actually they were saying cup. Or forehead. Or maybe something else.
