No one's home
This morning I had a meeting in Barkan, in Samaria. The fresh mountain air was wonderful. Many flowers in the valleys. The rooftops are red and green. But the kehillat koydesh (the community of saints, or the holy community. The traditional name of Jewish settlements) of Samaria radiates anger and stress. Yehuda Poch writes about the Obama administration: "When Israel is the issue, no one's home. Iran could fire a missile at Tel Aviv and wipe out a million Jews, and the current US administration would continue with its negotiations in the hope of preventing an arms race."
