Photo of the Day: Protective Edge

Today a ceremony was held at end of an Ulpan course for 300 new Israeli soldiers, all lone soldiers from countries around the world.

They were smiling, in spite of the situation.

I was smiling because our true protective edge is the brains and talent of these young people.

My son-in-law got called up for reserve duty, not smiling so much here as Operation Protective Edge edges closer to home.

About Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last seven years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
