The Picture the Media Will Never Show


Image hosted by
This is a picture of a minyan in Kar Maimon. Soldiers and protesters praying together . . . yet divided by a fence. What a comment on life in Israel, but you will never see this in the media!

I was warmed by this picture. For some reason, it must have been one of the best heartwarming (and saddening at the same time) pictures I've seen in some time. By the way, I took that picture from your site, and I showed it to everyone I knew. It reminded me about how tough the whole event must be to both the soldiers and the people they are kicking out.

Anyway, I am sorry for asking this, but I was wondering if you would be willing to put a link on your site to mine. My site is seriously lacking in Jewish readership and I could use the increased traffic (and more importantly, the feedback) on topics that I am writing about on the blog, and I don't know how to attract more Jewish readers. I'd appreciate any suggestions you have, and I've enjoyed reading your site since I came onto the blog world in March. Thanks. -Zoe

The background image on this page is a Hebrew translation of the verse from Bob Dylan's song  It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding), from which the title of this blog is taken. Translation courtesy of Yoram Aharon of Hod-HaSharon's page--found via YudelLine-- which has many Dylan lyrics in Hebrew.
