For the observant there was value and significance in the location itself. For the non-observant, it was just a place on the map. Not that odd really. I don't particularly care that Silesia, where my Prussian ancestors originated, is gone and now part of Poland. I don't know if I would support the re-establishment of Silesia and Prussia if someone where to try to start a revolution, because like the Jews I knew in grad school, I'm an American and don't self identify with any other location.

Over the weekend in an interview with Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, MSNBC host Mara Schiavocampo suggested rocket attacks "rarely do damage" as Israel continues to be under siege from Hamas militants and as millions of Israelis are camped out in bomb shelters.

“Living under the threat of rocket attack is certainly a psychological trauma. But what would you say to those who argue that the rockets are essentially very ineffective, they rarely do damage and that the response from Israelis is disproportional to the threat they’re under.”
