A New Feeling

One gift I've received from Hakadosh-Baruch-Hu has been a general feeling of hope. When I first realized (around 6 or 7 years old) that the world is filled with know-nothings who hold all the power and money, I recognized that a good brain, good family, and good friends can get you through almost everything.

In the past few days, I've gotten very worried about even that assumption.

It could be that my political views are not mainstream in the least. I am a moderate-Democrat (I would say a "Lieberman Democrat" but I'm afraid of the snipers, see below) in America and a Likudnik in Israel. Those two identities are rarely found together.

Which means that I have a tough time finding news to read online. The sites which are even passably pro-Israel are also rabid-Republican. There are a few which support Lieberman and, ipso facto, support Israel, but getting to those sites can be difficult.

The worst part is seeing the horrible anti-Israel hate on the Left Wing sites. As you can see from posts below, I believe being a Democrat does not mean being a liberal. But almost every 'Democratic' website has not gotten that memo.

Just reading page after page of hate against Lieberman and Israel makes the world feel very small, and very very dangerous.
