Norma Zager is a Jewish woman who lives in the USA.

In the series “Postcards from Israel,” Ari Bussel and Norma Zager invite readers throughout the world to join them as they present reports from Israel as seen by two sets of eyes: Bussel’s on the ground, Zager’s counterpoint from home.

Israel and the United States are interrelated – the two countries we hold dearest to our hearts – and so is this “point – counterpoint” presentation that has, since 2008, become part of our lives.

Will God Turn Off All The Lights of The World?

If the human race is racing anywhere, it is backwards at warp speed. In an effort to lighten the mood of this Postcard, and I can't imagine even the great Mel Brooks or Carl Reiner could achieve that considering the subject matter, I will add a jok

No One Follows The Laws Anymore?

This failure to obey or respect law and order is not exclusively a local, statewide or even national phenom. It is also flagrantly practiced on the international scene.

Gilad Shalit’s Exchange Good for Evil

So many, including Ari, are incensed about Israel's deal to retrieve Gilad Shalit. Somehow I am not, for I do not see any equality between human life and that of a sub-human species.

Will Gilad Shalit Return Safely to His Homeland, His Home and...

Stop caring more about political correctness than human life. War is war and it kills people. Whether or not you call someone a terrorist does not change the fact they are.

Is There Hope for Unified Jewish Presence in The World?

That there is hope for a unified Jewish presence in the world can only be accomplished through enormous faith, for logic and life experience have not served us well.

The Abuse Excuse

'Why did they kill little Bobby Franks? Not for money, not for spite, not for hate. They killed him as they might kill a spider or a fly, for the experience. They killed him because they were made that way.

US Foreign Policy in Middle East Only Leads Path Toward Destruction

Now Obama has exchanged Gaddafi for something far worse, radical Muslim fundamentalists. Such another deal! Boy, are our leaders dumb!

Israel Must Stand Up and Take Note of Enemy!

Calling them out may end in battle, but ignoring them will end in annihilation. Not just for Israel, but all the good in the world.

Evil Dictatorship Makes Great Career Choice

The money is astounding. Wealth and fortune beyond all comprehension can be yours.

The Buck Stops Here

Few Americans haven't seen a line of baby ducks following the Mama duck across the street. This picture also includes a line of cars stopped on both sides to allow the ducks safe passage. I, too, stop for ducks.

We Must All Excel in The New Age of Insanity

As a child I watched Bewitched. One of the characters in the show was Gladys Kravitz, the nosy neighbor who excelled at diligently spying on the Stevens' residence.

Jewish Alzheimer and 2012 Election

The latest Gallup poll shows that Jewish support for Obama is indeed down from the last election. One recent poll showed 60% support down from 83 when he first took office.

The Ark: Most Popular Focus of Religious Mysticism

I'm going out on a limb here. There is a great deal of chatter about giving Jerusalem to the Palestinians to appease the world. Everyone has an opinion, one way or another, and most are political, some ideological, many religious.

Jewish People Smart Enough to Know One Thing About ‘Insane One-World...

Just like at the United Nations, any time humanity unites, it cannot be a good thing for the Jews. The U.N.'s anti Semitic policies prove this theory beyond all doubt. It seems the only uniting factor for mankind is a dislike of the Jews.

Yes, We Americans are Worthy

From time to time Ari and I disagree about certain points or conclusions in a postcard, then we present both the original point and its counter-point.

Spin-Doctors’ Tribal Dance

As the spin-doctors do their tribal dance this campaign season, we need to close our ears to the lies and rhetoric the beltway will offer. Earplugs are cheap, even for a plethora of out of work Americans who are paying too high a price for hope and

Reaction to President Obama’s Speech

In his speech today Barack Obama said he wants to return Israel to its pre 1967 borders. He then immediately insisted the United States give the Indians back Manhattan Island in return for the $24.00 worth of crap paid by Peter Minuit.

The Pen is Mightier Than The Sword

Failing to lead the world in any viable manner any longer, Great Britain has selected enabling evil as its cause.

Brothers in Arms: Judas and Goldstone

What surprises me is shock people are expressing over the lack of outrage over Goldstone's retraction of the lies in his report on Israel.

Rolling in Heavenly Aisles

The laugh is on us, everyone who ran around like kosher chicken soldiers with their heads cut off trying to figure out how to save Israel from its enemies.
