    I have cut and pasted in the past, though not without attribution Dafna. If I had that would be Dafna? A laurel or laurel tree is the root of Daphne or Dafna. A laurel wreath was given to Greeks who won at the olympics or poetry competitions. It was what Romans gave to victors in war. The Judea captiva Denarius and Sesteretius coins commemorated the destruction of Judea by Titus. Titus as the conqueror wore a laurel crown. Dafna my observations and discourse are not intended to condemn or embarrass. Rather to enlighten everyone. Israel is a nation in today's world. A nation which has awarded laurels to such great men as Yigael Allon and Yitzhak Rabin for their conquests and to poets like Yair "anonymous soldiers' Stern and Yehuda "we do not have unknown soldiers' Amichai. Israel is not threatened today Dafna, by the world or outsiders. Those who's whole future, both political and financial, depends upon endless war are those who are the great threat to israel today.
