The Boys

The Jews in the Middle East. The proud and tragic people. Israel is in mortal danger. Again
Surrounded by evil that feeds on hate and ignorance. Another chapter in the long history of these unordinary people.

This sinking feeling.

It is happening again.

My heart is heavy and mine age is weak; grief would have tears, and sorrow bids me speak.”  Shakespeare.

Palestinians and peace.
Murdered foe being Jewish.

The children of Israel

Young boys

Gone.  Murdered.

So tragic, so familiar.

They are somebody’s sons



A small sliver of Jewish history

The unending saga of an ancient tribe.

These boys, Jewish boys, are murdered for one reason.

Jewish fate
An ancient tribe

The eternal reason

They are Jews

These kids belong to a small, ancient tribe

A tribe that stands alone in the world.

Apart from the rest of humanity.

The Jews

We are a nation.

But much more than that

A religion

Jew contributed enormously to humanity
Albert Einstein

But much more than that

All major religions are based on ours.

But we are much more than that.

Jews changed humanity in many ways.

Their contribution to all aspects of civilization is vastly greater than their numbers.

Proud and brilliant people.

Jews survived, persevered.

They have seen it all.

A mighty Empire rising and falling to dust

Brutal oppressors come and gone.


Jews are killed for being Jews
Anne Frank

Concentration camps

And yet every time the Evil rises unnoticed by humanity

Every time Evil is trying to crush the Jewish tribe

While passive humanity is pretending not to see

The Jews survive and Evil is retreating.

But it is still there

Waiting patiently

Gathering strength, again

Feeding on human hatred, ignorance and greed.

In an unending cycle Evil rises again

Now in the Middle East

Three young boys

ISIS in the Middle east
Evil rises again

Their future taken from them

Brutally murdered for only one reason – being Jewish.

Israel is in mortal danger


Surrounded by evil that feeds on hate and ignorance

Another chapter in the long history of these unordinary people.

I am proud to be a Jew

And I know that the page will turn

Jews are resilient people.

Evil will go in hiding again

Waiting for the opportune time to rise again

And we the Jews will face it again

But as always envied and disliked by the world.

The Jewish fate.

Sad knowledge and optimism.

We emigrated from the Soviet Union in 1979. I am proud of my children who grew up here in America. America is truly a great country and I am trying to do what I can to keep America great. We the people need to participate in a Democracy. I think that in a Democracy we need to constantly be vigilant and work to uphold our way of life. I am fighting for the freedom of speech and expression and against all kinds of extremes including political correctness.
