Remembering the Moment We Went to Haiti

A year ago, a devastating earthquake struck Haiti and the world looked in horror at the catastrophic results. We now know that in an absurdly short period of time, perhaps even in those first few minutes, Israel begin to mobilize its crew. The planes were loaded within 8 hours; a 15 hour flight, and another 8 hours until the field hospital was set up; the rescue workers ready to go save lives.

This is the last photo taken - moments before the team left Israel. They left in sunshine and landed in a hell beyond their worst nightmares. They made us so proud then; they make us so proud now.

Murder of 77,000 Iranians?

Between the Saudi arrest of a vulture, the Egyptian accusation against the sharks, one has to wonder what other insanity could possibly plague the Arab world? And now we know.

According to Israel National News, the Iranians are blaming Mordechai and Esther, the heroes of Purim for murdering 77,000 Iranians. Now, according to my book (it's called a megillah and comes in a scroll, but I've got the book version), I don't recall any 77,000 and I sure don't remember seeing the word "Iran."

And there's that little issue of self-defense.

And there's that little plot of destruction by Haman in which he promised to kill all the Jews.

But, if you can crown a vulture as a spy and say a shark attack is a Zionist plot, I guess you can blame people who have been dead and gone hundreds of years...for murder.

It fits, in some sick and demented way. My only question now is which Arab country will vote to condemn Israel for the "massacre" and how many votes it will pass by.

Wisdom from an almost 11-year-old

My daughter should have been sleeping, but she came out of her room a short time ago and I showed her the picture of Israel's latest "spy" and told her of the Saudi conclusion that a vulture they captured was actually a Zionist spy.

"I don't think he's a spy. How can he be a spy if he can't even talk? It's a bird! I'll find a bird and say it's a spy?"

There you have it - my almost 11-year-old is smarter than the entire Saudi Arabian police and security forces!

The Shark, the Jellyfish, and the Vulture

I'm sure that these three animals have little in common and weaving them into a coherent story would be hard, but leave it to the Arab world to succeed where no one else could.

It all began with the sharks that plagued Sharm-el-Sheik. Four times they attacked bathers in the waters and while it apparently didn't occur to the Egyptians to close the beaches, they did want to rush to offer blame. And, who else could it be but the Zionists? Mossad? "What is being said about the Mossad throwing the deadly shark in the sea to hit tourism in Egypt is not out of the question. But it needs time to confirm," Mohamed Abdel Fadil Shousha.

According to Mustafa Ismail, an Egyptian diving instructor, in an interview which aired on Egyptian TV in December 2010, Israelis are not only responsible for somehow redirecting sharks toward Egypt, but also for the migration of jellyfish - Zionist jellyfish, perhaps even Mossad jellyfish!

And now, if that isn't bizarre enough - the Saudis have confirmed the plot and even arrested a suspect - the vulture. That's right. A vulture tagged by Israeli scientists flew to Saudi Arabia, which, considering you can see it from Eilat, isn't really that far away. The vulture was caught red handed...or maybe red tagged with the evidence.

You can't pull anything over those Saudis...there's a tag from Tel Aviv University showing the bird is part of a science study on migration. It is, after all, a natural jump to assume the bird was spying, right?

Honestly, I just can't figure out how they thought this one up!
