Use your brain to control your heart

In today's instant spread of information through the Internet we need to be able to evaluate what is factual and what is an illusion. Peace is what many desire, but we are told Israel must make sacrifices to attain Peace. President Obama made a point that to attain peace we must start with 1973 Armistice line, and then exchange parcels of land to set the boundaries between Israel and the Palestinian states. Its what we all want. Our brain should make us hesitate. It means we return to the Arabs what we conquered in the war of 1973. Jerusalem, Golan Heights, Sinai, and Judea and Samaria. Remember what life was like when Jordan controlled Jerusalem, and no Jew could be near the Western Wall of our Temples. When Israel was limited to a sliver of land that was indefensible except with great loss of lives. The loss of sites in Judea and Samaria which have historic meaning, for example Cave of the Patriachs, cemeteries of Jews which were destroyed as well as Synagogues and homes of Jews now burned to the ground. To gain Peace should we expose ourselves to a return of life which is full of danger. No! First we must see with whom we can negotiate terms for peace. Negotiate with Hamas and Fatah, who believe Terrorism, and killing of Jews is part of their religion, and have constantly said No Negotiations, No Peace, and No Recognition of Israel. My brain tells me such a Peace is not lasting, and is just an illusion.

I Love This Stuff!

I love Charlie Harary's teachings. These videos pack more good stuff into a few minutes than some people can say in several hours.
