A Man Visits Hell

A good man had made a request to god that he wanted to visit hell once.

God had taken him to hell and he noticed a lot of clocks there on display.

Astonished the man asked ”What are these clocks for?”

God said “these are timers which rotate proportionally to the lies you tell on the earth”

“Why is that clock not rotating?” asked the man, pointing to a particular clock?

God said “It belongs to a nobleman who never told a lie, so it’s not moving.”

The man got curious and asked, “so where are the clocks of our politicians? I would like to see them!”

God said “Just look above you, they use them instead of fans here”.1

Sears – Christmas shopping this year.

I know I needed this reminder, since Sears isn’t always my first choice. It’s amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and Sears hasn’t withdrawn from their commitment. Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?

What commitment you say?

How does Sears treat its employees who are serving in our military? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being on active duty.

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs, for all employees who are serving.

I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears at least once this year. Be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement & feedback it well deserves.

In December 1938 — on the eve of World War II — a British stockbroker named Nicholas Winton was readying himself to leave for a skiing vacation when he was summoned unexpectedly by his friend.

I’m in Prague. I have a most interesting assignment and I need your help. Don’t bother bringing your skis.

Upon arrival in Prague, Czechoslovakia, Nicholas Winton found that he had traded his skiing vacation for working at a refugee camp for people who had been vacated from Western Czechoslovakia by Nazis after it was annexed by GermanyWinton became very concerned about the…

Will Israel Take Steps to Save Herself?

Beyond the Cusp

Often articles about the possible paths that lie before Israel going into the future denote how Israel must appease this one, follow the path spelled out by another, listen to this group or person and other such similar advisories all of which place Israel in a subservient role following the dictates of some other nation, group, expert, advisor or even the columnist writing the article itself. Most of these advisories are more aligned with the interests or desires of the entities leaving Israel in the position of following the demands of others or making apologies for acting in her own best interests. Unfortunately it is following bad advice or giving in to the pressures presented as something that the world demands or expects from Israel.  Many have concluded that Israel has lost something and is no longer that small nation standing surrounded by enemies who wished nothing more than…

The war the world forgot, Gulu and Northern Uganda

Notes from Camelid Country

The modern history of Northern Uganda makes for miserable reading. The region has been starved of development and infrastructure, starting as official policy of the British Colonial Administration in the 19th Century. It is a history which, for the last 200 years, is littered with conflict and suffering. Today, it remains one of the world’s longest-running and most destructive conflicts. Barely noticed by the outside world for decades and, despite occasional peace negotiations, stubbornly unresolvable.

The coming of independence in 1962 didn’t improve things for the north, its people deliberately repressed and persecuted by successive Ugandan governments. From Idi Amin to current President, Yoweri Museveni, the north has been the victim of official persecution along ethnic and political lines. Inevitably, this led to armed resistance, culminating in the maniacal depravations of Christian fundamentalist, and former altar boy, Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army.  Civilians bore the brunt of the endless fighting, and…

The Divinely Guided Bullet

In September 2012, Cpl. Motti Yalovsky and his good friend Nathaniel Yahalomi were part of a team of nine soldiers sent to reinforce a position along theEgyptian border, where a group of infiltrators were gathering. They were just setting up their camp when disaster struck. Three terrorists had managed to sneak up on them from behind.

“I’ll never forget that moment. My friend beside me asked if it was an exercise, and I shook my head…
