Good or Evil? Who Cares? We have Spin!

By Norma Zager

Weather report for an Arab Spring: cloudy and overcast with a shower of rockets into Israel…

As a child, the most exciting words were “We have liftoff!”

I knew another wanna-be Flash Gordon was on its way into outer space and would be fighting Ming the Merciless far beyond the ozone. Of course, that was before we knew ozone even existed.

Hallucinations

By Ari Bussel

Israel is sick, wandering between moments of lucidity and hallucinations. The body was attacked by a rare form of virus, a Palestinian Virus (“PV”).

Sixty-four year old, as if its rebirth was just yesterday, Israel still feels young, strong and able to endure and withstand whatever comes about, resist whatever attacks it may suffer.

Equal-Weight Opponents

By Ari Bussel

As in the sport of wrestling, Israel and Iran seem to be equal-weight opponents. The fight, though, will not be a sports competition where rules are followed. Rather, it would be a fight to the very end, until one dies a gruesome bloody death, while spectators are either shocked to immobility by the horrors they have just witnessed or cheering for the fulfillment of their wildest dreams.
