Can you cry for your enemy?

editor 27 May 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. Have you ever felt sick to your stomach? I mean that in a very literal sense. My throat feels clogged, my eyes are stinging. I almost can’t breathe. I’m not being dramatic. My son sits there reading from the computer and asks me if I had heard this news? He uses a Hebrew word, but I don’t recognize it. “Meesrepha” – “srepha” is a fire. I tell him I don’t know what that is, already feeling pressure inside. I can tell it’s bad from his face. “It’s what they used in the Holocaust,” he says, “to burn the bodies.” (more…)

The Day Jerusalem was Reunited

editor 26 May 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. Rabbi Emanuel Feldman’s book, The 28th of Iyar accomplishes something amazing. For most people, experiencing war is something simply not on their radar. If in their lifetime there is a war, it is on distant shores. Though only a small child at the time, I have vague memories of the Vietnam War – I remember the news broadcasts with casualty figures in the top corner on the side. That’s pretty much all they were – numbers. In America, it was life as normal. (more…)

Innocent Palestinian Girl Shot by Israeli Troops in Jerusalem

editor 22 May 2017

By Paula R. Stern.. A 16 year old Palestinian girl died yesterday. It’s true, she did. CNN will tell you. BBC will attempt to inform you. Reuters will shout it to the world. Even Times of Israel and Haaretz will quickly report about this and their reporters will mourn for that innocent child. That Innocent Child was shot by Israeli soldiers (never mind that the soldiers were not much older than the child). She was an innocent child, the daughter of someone. She’ll never live to marry, to bring children into this world. She’ll never raise them… (more…)

By Fox News..

And we are willing to negotiate with no preconditions, and we are willing to talk, and we are willing to push forward for any kind of peace agreement with the Palestinians. We have never been the problem.” (more…)
