Wait a minute, we’re Israelis!

The lack of tourists has hurt Israel on many levels. My wife noted that there are no tourists, but the roads are fuller than ever. Those few words, ‘there are no tourists’ ricochet back and forth in my mind until it reformed the reality in other words, ‘Israel is full of only Israelis’. Israel is so full of Israelis, that’s why the traffic is so intense. When was the last time that that happened? Usually, so many Israelis leave the country that traffic calms to a pleasant tempo.

We are in a unique position to be Israelis to the utmost and, in typical Israeli fashion, show the world how to handle all the problems that caused this isolation in the first place and is poised to destroy many nations with a globalist agenda. How can a nation of Israelis fix all the chaos?

First, we restore the smiles! We don’t see our fellow Israelis smiling when we come into a store, restaurant, room or meet them on the street. We Israeli’s smile a lot, eagerly, tenderly, kindly, laughingly and lovingly. We need to see the smiles of our fellow Israelis!

Second, Israelis love to engage in hugging. No people hugs as much as Israelis. Without hugs, we are weakening ourselves. We hug our partners, our friends that we haven’t seen since yesterday, our business associates, our teammates, our comrades with an added slap on the back and, very often people we meet for the first time. Nothing says ‘I’m Israeli’ like an Israeli hug.

Third, we let everyone make their own decision regarding the vaccine. The argument seems to be mute anyway. We who have been vaccinated, even more than once, can get covid as easily as one who never had any vaccination. If we Israelis want to be vaccinated, let us be vaccinated. If we Israelis don’t want to be vaccinated, let us not be vaccinated. If we Israelis get covid and recover, love us and hug us and smile when you see us.

That’s pretty much my plan of action. Who said we Israelis had to be enemies with each other? We are not meant to be enemies. We were meant to smile a lot, hug often and be responsible for our own health issues. We Israelis, until this craziness began, did not have a reputation of being stupid. Now it seems that dumb is the new smart. Let’s show the world what Israelis are all about!

We Israelis have been isolated from the nations for our own good. Let’s be Israelis again and show the nations how love conquers fear.
