  • And in still more Mida Keneged Mida news (which was emailed to me) - the Yerushalayim Arab neighborhood of Shuafat cannot get help from wild dogs because dog catchers don't feel safe in that neighborhood - from the people - not the dogs.
  • This week's Shomrei Emunim newsletter (p.1, middle column) shows how a verse in Miketz shows how instability in the world is a Geula sign.  Also, (p. 2, left column) the same verse shows how we will be redeemed due to Shabbat, Mila, and Rosh Hodesh.  Also, (p.4) an article on the dreidel.

More Mida Keneged Mida news; the British media is always full of news about Israel's 'illegal occupation of palestinian land'.

Recently the word 'occupation' is appearing more and more in the national media, but for a different reason. Occupation of local public buildings and areas by demonstrators and wasters is becoming increasingly popular. I chuckle now every time the word 'occupation' is used.
