Special To The Jewish Week

Last week, as I looked through the Jewish Week’s website, I found out that I have something in common with my justice minister Ayelet Shaked. In an interview published in The Jewish Week, Shaked told of the deep influence her military service in Hebron had on her worldview and her choice to lead her life as a politician. In 2001, as a young soldier, I spent my first tour of duty in Hebron. In total, I served as a soldier and commander in the city for about 14 months during the Second Intifada. Like Shaked, I learned lessons in Hebron that have guided me ever since.

Hail To The Chiefs

A commentator at CNN on Sunday suggested the Kansas City Chiefs' uncommon victory over the Carolina Panthers Saturday was a tribute to linebacker Jovan Belcher, who killed his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins and himself the previous day. 

That made me gag. This murderer, who left his child an orphan and then took the coward's way out rather than face justice, needs a tribute like Bin Laden needs a holiday.
