Someone asked me recently how many pages I have in my books. It raised an issue I’d never worried about, but feel like discussing.

He may have asked the question because he doesn’t like thick books, but my feeling is that the question stemmed from the opposite direction...

Exactly twenty-six years ago, on April 1, 1993, I became an officer in the Israel Defense Forces (That's me in the picture getting my rank - April 1st 1993).

If you regularly read this blog, you may have noticed in recent posts that I’ve started to express my position on political and diplomatic matters a little more. The recent elections in the United States have created in me the desire and the need not to hide anymore un...
