Marc … “Stay classy, pro-gun lobby.” That really is all there is to say about that isn’t it? …

excellent job by the way … really enjoy the site.

Yaakov Hillel says:

Knowning much about Oren, Oren was given his job on the basis of a favor for favor and not because of his acomplishments.He was not a minister or major military figure. He does not represent any plurality in Israel. His complete grouping have recieved 14% at the last elections(the 2 leftist groups combined). He definitely does not represent the government, One of our problems in Israel is every bastard is a king, and like Jews in america loves to talk and be popular. Do not be over zealous from things that Oren spurts out. He enjoyed being in the picture. Israel is not going to leave secured borders that its existence depends on. If Israel left the Jordan valley or let Samaria and Judea turn into a another Hamastan like Gaza, it would cease to exist.
