From Another Friend Whom I Didn't Know Was Jewish

Marla and I just returned from eight days in Israel and Palestine. This is a quick description of our trip for family and friends. Oy vey iss mir!!!

The original purpose of the visit, as proposed by my brother and sister-in-law, David and Sue, was to attend the Macabiah Games (Jewish Olympics) in which my nephews were playing on the U.S. masters' (over 35) soccer team. Michael is the captain of the team and Danny is another one of the stars. Also, Sue and David felt that if we could experience Israel as they do, we would soften our opinions about Israeli policy. I decided to go in order to pay respect to their perspective and to root for Michael and Danny. Also, not least, I felt I should actually see Israel for the first time, so I'd know a little bit more about what I've been shooting my mouth off already for decades. Marla went as my minder to keep me from getting in trouble. The trip was amply financed by my mother, Bertha
