Two Articles Not to be Missed
The first is about new memoirs of Rabbis who survived the Holocaust. It is unusual in that the information is taken from the prefaces of books on halacha (Jewish law) that these rabbis wrote. The actual text of the book does not contain personal information, but the introductions are rich with inspiring stories.
The topic of when did "settler" become a dirty word, is the subject of this article in the Jerusalem Post, which tries to give both sides of the story.
I disagree with with some of the points made, especially the one stating that the IDF is only in Judea and Samaria to defend those of us that live here - after all, the suicide bomber killed in Schem (Nablus) before he goes on his way is headed for Tel-Aviv, and not my little yishuv. But on the whole the article gives a good overview of the issues involved.
