<quoted text>I must have been around the same age when I first noticed the numbers tattooed on my father's arm and asked him what they meant. Imagine my disappointment when the explanation wasn't that he and Popeye got drunk one night and decided to get tats, tits and beers in Hong Kong. He was a pretty happy guy but got very, very serious when he explained that there are people in the world who for no reason will always hate Jews and the numbers were the way they kept track of us. It wasn't until much later that I'd matured enough to hear the rest of the story. Long story short, my takeaway was that before the war, my father was the second-youngest of nine kids. After the war he was the only one still alive. That's a lot of Hanukkah gifts I never got and to this day I hold Germany and to a lesser extent Lithuania responsible.
The way I reconcile the haters is that Israel exists. It will always be a source of irritation to those who wish it harm but it is strong enough to defend itself if need be...a condition unavailable to Jews before it's foundation. The louder they complain, the better it is doing it's job of being the one place on earth that is of, by and for Jews.
Sorry to hear that familiar story but you think the US lost 8 fighter jet pilots???

What I know about "palestinians".....
See what they are doing? That's what I do when the Israelis have finally had enough and they whip out the jets from time to time.
Every time a bus or a restaurant blows up, me and every other American becomes that much more pro-Israel.
hahahah hahahah and that closet muslim Pres wants us to give in to those animals. Poor USA. America deserves a real American President with some guts and brains.

" US Navy SEALs boarded a hijacked oil tanker early today in international waters off Cyprus, wresting control of the vessel from Libyan rebels who were attempting to sell the oil on the black market. The Morning Glory initially sailed into a Libyan port under a North Korean flag early last week, but North Korea denied having anything to do with it, the New York Times reports. After three armed rebels seized the tanker, it "wander[ed] around the Mediterranean piloted by unknown sailors under an uncertain flag," as the Washington Post puts it."

Poor monkeys.
When I first saw the story it said "...without serious injury". I wonder if that means all three Libyans were killed.

You got that right. I have a collection of folded flags and dog tags.

Never again? There's a little more to it than that..... Now they are on the run.

I really worry that Eisenhower was right. Pretty soon they'll all be gone and their voices silenced. You know how short the human memory is...how can we say never again when the number of people who remember keeps dwindling?

absolutely Uzi ...

if it were up to some of the scumbags on topix, it would be again and again and again .. but NEVER ...

A few years back, I looked up my son's grandfather's family from Saloniki and his grandmother's family from Krakow -- page after page after page of their names .. on the Yad Vashem Museum webpages of the names database.

Kind of "hit me" when I saw that ... in a completely different way than just reading generally ..

the best coffee I've had in my life I had in Tel Aviv ... can't remember where now - but somewhere fairly central and fairly recently too... they had a little glass bowl with the coffee - another with the milk - you combined the two - sounds really simple and uncomplicated - but the coffee was amaaaaazing ...

I love Ireland - bought a racehorse there in Cork many many moons ago - I was an amateur jockey on the flat in Scandinavia back then - and won a few races with her ... great filly she was .. she was a yearling when I bought her, and did "horse whispering" before it was called "horse whispering" ...

other than that, my best friend here in London is Irish ... Dubliner - she's amazing. We went out and celebrated St Pats on Saturday - seemed more appropriate as we're both working tomorrow .. lol ...

Have you heard of Irish Yoga classes???

I don't even know what corned beef is...
Can you believe that?

I'm from the East Side. I like the old man in that joint. He has some kind of weird Russian accent. Every time he tries to help the assembly workers, things get all fck'd up. But he owns the joint and he's funnier than hell.

Dammit. The contractors that remodeled my little farm house hung this big tv on the wall right next to my desk. I can't ignore it.

I never watch tv, but I got sucked into this SUV show with Mr. T and that Russian chic that is Jayne Mansfield's daughter. But sometimes it is with Christopher Meloni... and Vincent D'onoffrio. I'm all confused. But the writing on that show is spectacular.

Apparently, my tv is stuck on a channel that plays that show 24/7.

I smashed my remote control against the floor.

I've reached that point in my life where I have to ask my daughter how to change a channel or set a timer.

And what the fck is an "app"?
