These negotiations don’t just gain time for a nuclear program about whose military intent the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is issuing alarming warnings. They make it extremely difficult for Israel to do anything about it (while it still can), lest Israel be universally condemned for having aborted a diplomatic solution.

Purim parade in Ma’ale Adumim

Hi Everyone!

On Thursday, March 8, there was a Purim parade in Ma’ale Adumim.

The parade (called “Adloyada”) started at 10:00am.

The weather was great and thousands enjoyed the parade and

the Purim activities in Central Park.
