The Pioneers of Israel


When the Syrian tank entered the gates of Degania Alef, in the early morning hours of May 20, 1948, it was greeted with molotov cocktails: It hasn't moved since. Started by Russian immigrants who arrived in 1909, sitting on the southern end of the Sea of Galilee, it's the oldest Kibbutz in Israel. When Moshe Dyan was born there in 1915, they were still under Ottoman rule. He was named after the first defender killed, in 1913.

Leaving that tank there sure is a powerful reminder of, both past and present, clear danger.

Today in Tel Aviv :

Israel 3 Iceland 2

Visitors leave behind a deceiving scoreline with two late goals.

THIS you might find interesting from the world of sports, Mr. Molovinsky :

"DRILLO SUPPORTS CULTURAL BOYCOTT - CELEBRITIES GO TOGETHER"

The national football team manager of Norway, an admitted Socialist/Marxist and former member of country's Communist Worker's Party, headlines a group of 100 prominent Norwegians who signed a petition calling for a cultural and academic boycott of Israel.
