To go along with a depressing day of cold nasty rain, here’s an article that will chill your heart:

Israel’s Total Failure: Schijveschuurder Family Plans to Leave Israel

Here’s just a snippet:

“We have every intention and desire to take what you see here, break the headstones, remove the remains buried here and take them outside the country who betrayed them,” says Meir Schijveschuurder — his parents and three siblings were killed in the attack at the Sbarro restaurant. “Because the State of Israel betrayed everyone who lies here and there are several hundred of them, only in this area [of the cemetery].”

The Schijveschuurder family, originally from Holland, is one of the families that has paid the heaviest price in the history of terrorism against the State of Israel. Two parents and three of their children were killed in the attack at the Sbarro restaurant, and two other children were seriously injured. When Meir Schijveschuurder learned this week that those who planned the attack, drove the terrorist to Sbarro, and were now released from prison, the son desecrated the monument in memory of Yitzhak Rabin in Tel Aviv in protest. He was arrested and released.

The children tried to appeal their arguments to the Supreme Court, but were also rejected. The brothers say the High Court’s ruling was predetermined before hearing any of their claims. “We will not allow terrorists to leave the country! And if they leave the boundaries of the country, the residents of the United States and United Kingdom should know that Israel betrays its population,” said Shvuel angrily.

“I lost faith in everything that I felt”

And let’s add some more on the cake of how the world sees us.
