Opportunity to make a family happier

Hello my friends from around the world.
The next email is not going to be fun as others.
I received the attached mail from a father who lost his son to the conflict.
You asked to know more about my country and I think that this should be part of this, even that it's not common.

This person, Yossi is his name, tells the story of his son, Blondi, who died in 2003 by a suicide murderer.
His son probably wanted to travel around the world after his military service, the same way I did, and probably would have met amazing people the same way I met you.
But he didn't.
His father asks if we can take his attached picture and take our picture with it in different places around the world, to give Blondi the travel he will never be able to have by himself.
I thought the best I can do is asking all my international friends to take their picture with him.
so, if you would like to help, take a picture with blondi, and send it to his father on:
more information can be found here:

and you can see his video here:

I promise my next Israeli email wouldn't be a sad one, but this is indeed part of our country.
Thank you!

I promised a conflict

When I go back home I'll have more time to write my opinions about the issues in Israel, but now because of lack of time and motivation, I will just add this link for this movie which represent a very realistic image of the conflict in the west bank:

tell me what you think, I hope you enjoy!

let the fun begin!

Hello dear friends!

You asked for information about Israel, so here we go:
In the way I see it, we are all minorities in Israel, and I believe that everyone might suffer some kind of discrimination.
On the other hand, the discrimination is not as bad knowing that everyone shares it, and there is no one group with dominant power.

I hope the next old video can demonstrate the culture variety situation in Israel:

I encourage you to add your own questions for my next email :)
Thank you for your interest!

and just for fun
I found this video related to the last one, same main actor, also from an old Israeli parody movie but not as old as the first movie:

does it reminds anyone else the movie - scarface?
