It's All Done with Mirrors - Emet m'Tsiyon

The world is swimming in lies. Who doesn't know that? Even the dupes are told that there are lies about. We aim here to dispel the fog of lies, especially about Israel, in the spirit of our prophets of old, and our great poets like Yehudah haLevi.

My heart is in the East, and I in the uttermost West
How can I find savor in food? How shall it be sweet it to me?
How shall I render my vows and my bonds, While yet
Zion lieth beneath the fetter of Edom, and I in Arab chains?

Zion! Wilt thou not ask if peace be with thy captives
That seek thy peace -- that are the remnant of thy flocks?

The false prophets cry Peace, and there is no peace.
