    hope that no matter what difficulties arise in family, health, or finances, a family can survive it and get to the other side. 'How' is not just one response, rather it's an evolving idea. Solutions present themselves as you go along the path. As you seek the thing it is you want to achieve, so will an idea come to you. I do not attribute it to a god or a religion, though I may have one or both of those. This is life. Hope. Live with me,...

    Austin's Anti-Semitism?

    Update: Hadag Nahash replies... 

    "We were scheduled to play a 50 minute set starting 1 am. It goes without saying that we were extremely excited to play this show and were perfectly ready to rock the house. Unfortunately the evening accumulated a significant delay and we couldn't start until about 2 am. Two songs after we started members of Ten Oak staff forced us off the stage claiming the event must finish at 2:15 am. We were shocked and disappointed at this turn of events (as were people in the audience that we spoke to) but there really wasn't much we could do about it. We hope to be back in Austin soon so we can play a proper gig!" Peace, Shaanan of Hadag Nahash "

    We totally hope so too.

    Is an undercutting patronizing phrase word a form of anti-semitism? All the way from Israel last night, Hadag Nahash was set to perform at Ten Oak only to cut their show three songs in. Why?

Not that Israelis really give a damn but why would you tell the guests that the password to get in is Bacon? Hostility from the beginning to the end at Ten Oak Austin toward Israel. What happened to Texas hospitality for a band who flew 9000 miles?"

    "The band was supposed to perform at 1:00 am, but they were pushed to the end of the show until around 2:00am, and after 2 songs the club turned the lights on. Besides that, when I entered the show-room of the club and paid the entry ticket, the guy told me that if the stamp would get erased the password to re-enter is bacon. I know it is hard to prove those things and they can say 'coincidence,' but there are many incidents recently and it's not being reported. It has to stop." 

    Most Concerning: People are no longer ashamed to parade negative feelings toward Jews, right here in Austin. 

    On the flipside, others thought it was just logistical FAIL- "This is quite a stretch. I was there, and this was more a matter of poor organization and lack of judgement than anything else. Too bad because HaDag Nachash is an awesome band." - Marcos

    Remembering the Fogel Family

    Massacre of the Innocents

    By Jeff Jacoby / March 16, 2011 / Boston Globe


    LAST WEEKEND in Itamar, an Israeli settlement in the Samarian hills, terrorists infiltrated the home of Udi and Ruth Fogel and perpetrated a massacre of the innocents.

    The killers started with Yoav, the Fogels’ 11-year-old, and Elad, his 4-year-old brother. Yoav’s throat was slit, and Elad was stabbed twice in the heart. Then the attackers murdered Ruth, knifing her as she came out of the bathroom. In the next room they killed Ruth’s sleeping husband, Udi, and their infant daughter, Hadas. Apparently they didn’t notice the last bedroom, where the two other boys, Ro’i, 8, and Yishai, 2, were asleep. It wasn’t until half past midnight, when 12-year-old Tamar came home from a Friday night youth group, that the horrific slaughter was discovered. Much of the house was drenched in blood, and the 2-year-old was shaking his parents’ bodies,crying for them to wake up.

    What explains such unspeakable evil? What sort of human being deliberately butchers a sleeping baby, or plunges a knife into a toddler’s heart?
