Sitting in Israel's center, such as Ramat Aviv, Tel Aviv, or in comfort of other countries, they have audacity, chutzpa, nay, malice, to determine fate of most dedicated modern-time vanguards Israel has produced in recent times.
I had greatest privilege of visiting Gush Katif last month. I was honored to meet diligent, tenacious, dedicated, ingenious and courageous people who live there.Every Israeli, every Jew, and all those who seek justice, Jewish or not, must be deeply proud and grateful for what these incredible people have created.
For all of you, my readers, I posted photos I took during my visit. You will find them in:

What you will see is wonderful hospitable family of Nissim and Nurit in Ganei Tal where I stayed. Their children Stav and Nadav. Their unbelievable greenhouses in which they produce best tomatoes ever, which they pack and ship to markets in Europe.
Pay attention to paradise these people created in what used to be nothing but Saharan sand dunes. You will see prosperous communities, lawns, flowers and trees miraculously grown by these industrious people.
You will also see Memorial Day ceremony and exhibition in memory of those family members who were murdered by terrorist villains. Pay attention to concrete blocks erected to protect people from Arab snipers.
There are 5 folders with total of 68 photos to flip through.
I hope my photos will add a dimension to your considerations. The eviction of these excellent people must be opposed with all legitimate means. Their fate is our fate and their fall is a victory for terror. If you love Israel, if you believe in Zionism, raise your voice. Help stop injustice.
