Have you ever thought about this? If a country was fighting for
its independence against a ruthless aggressor and was so determined to keep
fighting that it kept going even when in ruins and the population were beyond

came from families where names like Abraham, Issac and Hester were common……………so
what does that make me?……………..part Jewish.
My advice….look into your own
