i am pro-israel, with final, secure borders. if i could, i would move israel to some far away place, an unkown. but then i remember the desert wind with its unique perfume, the galile and the rose of sharon, zfat winding and cool and jerusalem where one feels so close to something magical-- the dead sea with its treacherously still salt water, the end of the world. israel is for us, and we are for israel. it so happens that israel is in the middle east. there she was born and there she will die. yet, the middle east is as far away as siberia. one day, this all might change, but not in my day.
