And on the 7th Day, I Rested

It's been a very long last few months for me, having been very involved in the NU-NRP Anglo campaign, and frankly, I am drained, both physically and emotionally.

At this point, I can't even begin to think about anything political, and only with great effort can I bring myself to read the news. I am hoping that by Sunday I will have recharged my batteries, and will be back to my normal, pre-campaign routine (which believe it or not, actually included blogging).

Until then, Shabbat Shalom from Ma'aleh Adumim (which as of now is still under the sovereignty of the State of Israel - sort of...).

i've missed your insight from the front.
looking forward to your return!
maaleh adumim better stay put cause i would hate to make aliyah to hamastan.
although it would be fun to start jewish political parties and have a few seats in the p.a. legislature.
p.s. you ever get the feeling there will never be a palestinian state on jewish land? i dont think hasehm will allow it no matter how much we mess things up.
good shabbos!

It was a good rest to those with any sensibilities that Ze'ev took time off from blogging. Maybe when you are less tired Ze'ev, you will begin to sound more coherent and sensible on the true state of things in Israel.

I am glad the left did quite well. Maybe now, social welfare will be addressed, somehting the "religious" have only either ignored or helped to perpetuate in this country.

Hope you manage to get some rest and are recuperating from the election.

Zionist, perhaps you are the one who needs some enlightenment.

In the 16th Knesset the 2 most active MK's who dealt with social issue were both from the National Religious Party - Shaul Yahalom and Gila Finkelstein - and they were recognized as the most active MK's who passed legislation for childrens rights, the disabled, womens rights, road safety, security guards...

Yes, even more than Labor, Meretz, Shinui and any other party that claims to champion social issues.

Zeev:

Yes, it is in some ways, ashame to see Mrs. Finklestein gone. I am sure with the Gil, Meretz, Shas and Labour back in the Government soon, social welfare payments will increase and child benefits will be reinstated.

Zionist, but that's the point, Gila Finkelstein and Shaul Yahalom didn't pass legislation that was specifically geared to benifit the religious (such as child payments), they passed legislation that benifited womens rights, the elderly, handicapped, security guards, road safety...
