THE SEASONS OF WAR

Israel has only two seasons, summer and winter. Summers are long, winters are short…. but in between Israel has wars. Most times they refer to them as ‘Offensive Operations’… Just in the past year we saw (and are seeing) the following…

“Operation Summer Rains”

“Operation Autumn Clouds”

“Operation First Rain”

“Operation Hot Winter”

Summer is just around the corner…. perhaps there can be a ‘turn around’ and we will see OPERATION SUMMER PEACE….
As the following song says…. “I swear its not too late”.

Turn,Turn, Turn

Words-adapted from the bible, book of ecclesiastes
Music-pete seeger

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time for every purpose, under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time for every purpose, under heaven

A time to build up,a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time for every purpose, under heaven

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time for every purpose, under heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time to love, a time to hate
A time for peace, I swear its not too late

    Hello. My country is a disgrace. It is ripping the Middle East to shreds for its glory and for oil.

    Some of us have been trying to get them to bring the troops home from Iraq by cutting the funding for the war.

    Here we are trying to get our senator arrested.

    I only wish it was a real arrest, instead of symbolic and nonbinding.

    Take care.
