Very often I claim my life to be quite interesting, full of happenings which do not allow me falling into depression, stagnation or simple boredom.
Now I look around and see that the current situation in Israel doesn’t allow one to fall asleep either. For sure, Israeli turbulences do not affect (nor afflict?) an extremely high percentage of the world population. Yet if looking closely on the topics and matters the trouble is about, one will not deny its significance.
Ideological, ethical, spiritual, social and national battles take place there every day anew. Israel is a country which never rests – even the Holy Day of Rest, the Shabbat, cannot be seen as a period of cease-fire, on the contrary, it’s the day where the ones throw stones, others add fuel to the fire (ironically, lightening fire is forbidden by the Torah!) by their statements, decrees, acts.
