April 18th, 2015 by Gail Winston

Dear Family & Friends,

Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day was yesterday. Please note that we had another victim of anti-Jewish hate & murder by ‘vehicular homicide’. Baruch Dayan Emet. I wrote about it yesterday but, Arlene Kushner is always so stirring in her writing about Shalom Yochai Sherki, 25 & Shira (bat Adel Ada) Klein, 20, being struck by an Arab from new Anata at a French Hill bus stop, standing with many others.

It’s Shabbat soon so just the Index today:

GAZA WAR DIARY Thu. April 16, 2015 Day 279 Yom HaShoah 2 Am

April 16th, 2015 by Gail Winston

Dear Family & Friends,

Today was Yom HaShoah, Holocaust & Remembrance Day, 2015, 70 years after WWII ended & Auschwitz was liberated. No words can describe it. 10 am the 2 minute siren of silence & contemplation of the horror. Is 2 minutes enough? Is a lifetime of memories for the Holocaust survivors too much? Do they ever recover? How do they remain sane? We saw short stories of several…six who were the torchlighters for last night’s big commemoration. I wish I could have captured the exact speeches for you by President Ruvie Rivlin & Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in this Diary. But, I haven’t yet found them on-line. They were outstanding, moving, true – even though I am still Hebraically challenged, I did undertand what they were saying.

The ‘news’ is still political…about how Obama’s State Department trained Israeli Arabs worked our political system. Manny often spoke about how the top 3 Arab representatives of 10 to 20 years ago had been prepped & trained by the CIA as to how to speak to the Western Media, how to attack Israel with the “Big Lie” (which could go around the world twice while the truth was still getting out of bed!) – a Goebbels trick of dirty propaganda.

The Nazis biggest trick was how they dehumanized... Read More

April 14th, 2015 by Gail Winston

Dear Family & Friends,

This seems to be really good news for a change about the prospects of a Nuclear-Free Iran. The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted unanimously to give Congress the right to view any concessions, agreements with Iran regarding Iran’s Nuclear Weaponization. I hope that means Iran won’t become Nuclearized.

We shall see. As I commented within: “TRUST & VERIFY”. I see Bibi’s speech to Congress on March 3rd influencing these top influentials of America – who are on our side! Along with the American people!

Of course, I’m not just such an optimist but, I am a realist. Some days we win.

This week, this night & tomorrow here in Israel we commemorate Holocaust Day, Yom HaShoah. Tomorrow morning at 10 am the sirens will ring out all over Israel – but not with a Code Red as they did for incoming missiles during the Gaza War for more than 50 days last summer. These sirens will alert every Israeli citizen to stop whatever he or she is doing, even to stop their cars, get out and stand for the moments of silence to remember our great losses 70 years ago…And at other times in our Jewish history when Amalek, the tyrants of the passing world, come to attack us & try...

GAZA WAR DIARY Mon-Tue. April 13-14, 2015 Day 276-7 1 Am

April 13th, 2015 by Gail Winston

Dear Family & Friends,

Officially, Sunday was only one of the 3 coldest April days in Israel’s recorded history. But, we survived & the weather, she is moderating. Cold but sunny. OK, I’m using the exceptional weather to stall on what I really need to say: Lots of interesting news today – mostly about the non-deal/framework the 6 Western countries have/don’t have with Iran. However, the last 2 articles are the most revealing exposés: Today Hillary Clinton started her run for American President in 2016. But, this exposes the reasons for the Sept. 11, 2012 Muslim attack that killed 4 Americans in the American Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. What Amb. Chris Stevens was really doing under orders from President Obama & then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may, in fact, torpedo her chances for a successful presidential campaign. It sounds worse than Arms-for-Contras, Watergate & other scandals. The last article here is worse. It describes ‘glowingly’ the gold ring that President Obama wears & has worn on his left hand since at least his Community College days – with Islamic inscriptions inscribed upon it. Specifically, the words are the beginning of the Shahada, the basic Muslim vow: “There is no god except Allah” (La Ilaha Illallah”. “By wearing the Shahada on jewelry, a person communicates that Allah is in control of...

Sha’i Ben-Tekoa: “the Immoral Futility of Negotiations” April 7, 2015

April 13th, 2015 by Sha’i ben-Tekoa



From the Mind of Sha’i ben-Tekoa


Date: April 7, 2015

Parasha: Shmini / שמיני

Title: “The Immoral Futility of Negotiations”

Copyright Sha’i ben-Tekoa 2014

Shalom laYehudim, Shalom laBnai Noach, Shalom laGoyim. יח ניסן תשע”ה

It’s the evening of the 4th day yudkhes beNisan, tav-shin-ayin-heh, Parashas Shmini, the evening of the 3rd day, Tuesday, 7 April 2015, webcasting from Eretz Yisrael in the middle of Passover Week, when we celebrate our deliverance from Egyptian tyranny.

Maybe this fact is contributing to the rising tide of anti-Jewism and eruptions of antiJewitis that come in different forms: envy of our pleasure. For example, hardly a week goes by now without news of a Jewish cemetery in Europe and elsewhere being vandalized, spray painted with swastikas, tombstones toppled. Such activities are carried out presumably by the less intellectually gifted, Jew-hating goyim with access to, say, a tow-truck or pick-up truck with winches used to pull down the stones.

But then there are more refined types such as university students who act out their Jew-hatred by organizing Israel Apartheid... Read More

GAZA WAR DIARY Sat. Night & Sun. April 11-12, 2015 Day 274-5 2 Am

April 11th, 2015 by Gail Winston

Dear Family & Friends,

We had a wonderful finale of Pesach week! All the children around the seudah tables – lots of songs, yummy food, laughs & some nice wildness!

Today we had drenching rain which actually began Friday at 3 pm. The temperature was icy cold for Jerusalem’s heights…10-12º Cent. With huge gusty winds on Saturday. Heavy rain off & on. Today in only one hour we had powerful thunder, hail, rain & – some flakes of lacy snow! In that same hour, the sun emerged as I sat at the window holding the sleeping 7 week old babe. I even got a patch of sunburn through the window. Summer is really coming. Maybe we’ve had so much rain this year because it’s the Shmitta (Seventh) year when the farmers are supposed to rest their land, not plant, not water. So, Hashem is watering our Land beautifully for us on this Seventh Year in our religiously structured agricultural cycle.

G-d gave us our rules for taking care of our Land environmentally & ecologically – kind & smart. “If you continually harken to My commandments that I command you today, to love Hashem, your G-d, and to serve Him, with all your heart and with all your soul –... Read More

Dear Family & Friends,

The Seventh Day of Pesach, Shvi’i Shel Pesach begins at 6:30 pm & flows into Shabbat tomorrow night – so here is some ‘lite’ reading for your enjoyment.

The Seventh Day was the Day (7 days after the Exodus) 3327 years ago when the Jewish People crossed the Red Sea on “dry land”. They all saw G-d’s revealed miracle. This was the miracle that crowned their new “Jewish People-hood” after the trauma of the actual Exodus from Egypt & being chased by the Egyptian soldiers. And so began our Chosen trek across time to today. We Are Here!

Have a wonderful Chag & Shabbos.

All the very best, Gail/Geula/Savta/Savta Raba x 2/Mom

April 8th, 2015 by Gail Winston

Dear Family & Friends,

Whole day working on 3 days of GW Diaries. 90ºF. outside today. Summer is here. The moon is still at ½ waning & shining into my window over my computer.

Home with 7 month old great-grandson & his parents & 2 month old great-grandson & his parents! These are our dor l’dor, generation-to-generation, our future to enjoy now in the present – while working to ensure that we give them that future.

So much analysis on Iran “Bad Deal”, holes in “Bad Deal” which President Obama slipped out while giving a ‘victory lap’, i.e., a ‘media blitz’. He looks terrible – but, the “Deal” is so terrible that he deserves to look that way. More commentary is sure to come – in fact it’s all lined up for tomorrow. Tonight for your reading pleasure tonight I give you: Caroline Glick, Jennifer Rubin, John Quincy Adams via Amir Taheri, Bill Kristol, Janet Lehr, Yoram Ettinger, Former MK Arieh Eldad…

Have a great night, a fun day. Seventh Day of Pesach begins tomorrow night at sundown.

All the very best, Gail/Geula/Savta/Savta Raba x 2/Mom

April 7th, 2015 by Gail Winston

Dear Family & Friends,

Happy Days are here again. Twas a beautiful hot day b’Eretz Yisrael. We went to play at the Zikit Adventure Park on the entrance to Ma’ale Adumim. It’s fun watching the parents watch their kids enjoy doing their own fun. No screens; no cell-phones; nothing to interfere with or intercede for a child’s play. Then home for total demolishment of 30 pieces of baked, bar-b-qued chicken legs, 30 plus potatoes mashed & yummy salad by 20 hungry big & little kids. Then a Pesachdik Chocolate Mousse Cake for our 2 year old blondini’s 2nd year Birthday. What could be better or more Simcha?!

But, in the still of the night, under a ¾ waning moon-light, we still must send you the news you need to know….mostly about a “Nuclear Iran” & how to combat it. You can share happiness with reality. It’s called ‘multi-tasking’ both your hearts & minds. Two long, well-researched articles about Islam (#s 2 & 6) will help you understand what we’re up against so we can win this life-&-death fight.

Still, have a warm, sweet night a blessed tomorrow.

All the very best, Gail/Geula/Savta/Savta Raba X 2/Mom

Dear Family & Friends

Two great infant grand-sons here & they brought their parents…good idea! Lots of great food cooking, smelling delicious – but, not what the babies drink. Lots of cameras clicking.
