In these dark times of Covid-19 we have a remembrance day of coming light and a new world.
Israeli parents did their best that their children could enjoy a normal Purim. Medical face-masks make a big appearance at holiday events. 39+ Israelis have coronavirus. President Rivlin expected to give first mandate to Benny Gantz.
The League of Nations, which placed Palestine under British mandate reflected a heady mixture of religious and imperial motivations that Britain would find difficult to reconcile in the troubled years ahead. Palestinian Arabs, desiring political autonomy and resenting the continued Jewish immigration into Palestine, disapproved of the mandate, and by 1936 their dissatisfaction had grown into open rebellion. Nearly a century later there is still not yet a good solution found to have Arabs, Palestinians and Jews and non-Jews living together in peace in one or two countries they could accept as their homeland.
It is incredible that one world leader is convinced he is the only one to solve all world problems and is the best one to decide how matters have to be solved. In Antwerp, on Friday, Dr. Itamar Shachar shall lead a conference with Inès Abdel Razek and Mahmoud AbuRahma looking at the present situation in the trials to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Zoals wij al gewend zijn geraakt van de 45ste president van Amerika, heeft deze het laken naar zich toegetrokken en Nethanyanu voor zijn kar getrokken om voor de Israëlisch populaire maatregelen te treffen zonder rekening te houden met de Palestijnen die hun plan voor de staat Israël zo maar willens-nillens moeten aanvaarden.
As we have become accustomed to the 45th president of America, he has pulled up the sheet and pulled Nethanyanu in his cart to create a plan with popular Israeli measures without taking into account the Palestinians in the talks for planning the state of Israel.
All should know that the discrimination and displacement inside Israel's 1948 borders are connected to its rule in those Occupied Territories. This system of violence deprives all Palestinians of civil, political, and economic rights.

In ancient times on market days and the days people where free, they came together to listen to the reading of the Torah. Today any day could be used to come together to listen to the reading of the Holy Scriptures. Written and oral material was brought from one generation into an other and formed the base for the construction of many communities or religious groups and denominations.
