I was born in Brooklyn (like everybody), but I served in the Israeli army; my first reserve duty was the Six-Day War. My father was a Palestinian--born in Poland, emigrated to Palestine when he was three years old, in 1920. I inherited a deep love of Israel from him. I hate the stream of lies I read and hear daily about Israel. I love Israel's people--all of them.

You must read this piece on the UN Human Rights Commission (what do you call a multiple oxymoron?) on their decision to condone violence as a way to achieve Palestinian statehood on Meryl Yourish's blog. Thank you, Meryl!
