Hatikva / Espoir / hope / התקוה

**The hope of two thousand years
To be a free nation in our land**

And why should only the speakers of Hebrew be denied either -
that basic and universal hope ?
Or their re-birth as a vibrant and creative people in their one and only historic homeland ?
Or its enjoyment in peace and security ?
Or within secure and recognized boundaries ?

John McCain - tested and not found wanting.

John McCain, originally uploaded by buck82.

After 6 years on Hoa Loa Prison, he can handle 4 in the White House.

John McCain and My Dad,

The real ex-USN Capt John S. McCain, and the POW who refused early release from his North Vietnamese Communist torturers unless all those captured after him were also released. A bit different from having Rev Jeremiah **God Damn America** as your self-confessed friend, pastor and counsellor. There may be a lot more than skin-color, or years, that separates John and Obama. What price character and courage ? And who does Hamas or Hizb-ALLAH prefer ?

Tzipi was not only a Lt in the IDF but then served 4 years in Mossad. She might like to try out her Krav Maga in a spot of un-armed combat, so do be careful. Be very very careful. I know you like taller women, but this one wont come armed with only a guitar.
