What's Brewing in The Middle East?

In my house it's just "Turkish" coffee in the Passover percolator, but the headlines make it seem like we're more like in the "eye of the storm." Syria is close to Israel, a lot closer than it feels here in Shiloh.

In northern Israel, Shiloh is in the center of the country, I have no doubt that people are more aware of what is happening in Syria. From the press, it seems that injured Syrians are being treated in Israeli hospitals at our taxpaying expense. I wonder how much of these humanitarian acts are reported in the international media and by human rights organizations including the United Nations which spends lots of time condemning Israel for alleged violations.

Here are a few headlines:

Assad's allies say U.S. attack crosses 'red lines'
EGYPT'S SISI SAYS THREE-MONTH STATE OF EMERGENCY TO BE DECLARED
U.S. air strike gives Tillerson a boost for Moscow talks
PALM SUNDAY BOMBINGS OF EGYPTIAN COPTIC CHURCHES KILL 44

And it's not as if the rest of the world is peaceful. There have been more terror and antisemitic attacks in Europe recently.

In just a few hours, we'll be turning off all electric media and communications devices to celebrate the Passover holiday.

Chag Kasher v'Sameach to All
Have a Wonderful, Joyful Kosher Passover

Thousands of US boots are now in Syria with tens of thousands getting staged. Not in the media. As we celebrate our freedom of the past, we need a freedom in our future, in all humanity, for their future. When is it enough already? Chag Sameach to you and your family Batya.
