My musings, reflections on life here in Shiloh, Israel. Original, personal, spiritual and political. Peace, security and Israeli sovereignty. While not a "group blog," Shiloh Musings includes the voices of other Jews in The Land of Israel.

That's not a building inspector; he's my father on one of our daily walks around the neighborhood. We have been enjoying the sight of the building site and its progress.
Shiloh is an ancient city, with a long Jewish History, lots longer than the United Nations has been in existence. Remember that the United Nations was established after World War Two. One of its first "acts" was to vote for the establishment of a modern Jewish State, the State of Israel. In most Israeli cities there's a "29th of November Street" to commemorate that vote.
To me, it should be a day of national mourning. No, not because we shouldn't have a state. G-d forbid you should think such a thing. It's because the Zionist "leaders" felt the need for international approval. That's still our problem today.
Instead of recognizing, glorifying and publicizing our ancient history, well and easily proven in places like Shiloh, the Israeli Government keeps on trying to win the love and approval of people who prefer that we be the subject of museums and memorials.
