I cannot take it anymore.

I wanted to stay away from the internet, but I am finding it impossible. I have been worried sick about the war in Israel/Lebanon. I am worried sick about my family in Haifa, who are Holocaust survivors, and I am worried sick about the people of Israel and Lebanon. The Lebanese are good people, and they are being held hostage to Hezbollah, who is also holding Israel hostage. Why can't the world be a better place? I long for the day when I can go on vacation to Israel and Lebanon - and just drive from Israel to Lebanon, without worrying about terror. I wish peace were possible, but it's not at the moment. War is hell, but sometimes it is necessary. If only. I can dream, can't I? Please wake me up from this nightmare.

War is hell, but I view this as Israel finally saying enough is enough. How long should the Israeli people live in fear?

That's easy for me to say from the comfort of my computer desk here in NY.

As for you, breaktime is over - back to the stacks :)

R: "I am worried sick about my family in Haifa, who are Holocaust survivors, and I am worried sick about the people of Israel and Lebanon."

The toughest people seem to be Holocaust survivors. Give them a ring every now and again - that's what we have been doing re our cousins - they tend to make me feel a lot better.

Israel has got to finish this, Syria must be on the target list and Hezbollah must be eliminated, unless they come begging Israel for a peace. Peace is often born from war.

I don't think Israel will finish this though.

Note some good news: Iran said that today was going to be the worst day for Israel, but this has been an empty threat. Thank you IDF.
