Rhetorical Candy reflects on images of, suppositions about, and lived experiences indigenous to Israel. The Jewish state is neither an ongoing beach party nor a perpetual war zone. This country's fruit crowns world agricultural, her high tech is second to none, and her military know-how remains superlative. The Holy Land equally embraces foreign laborers, BUL M5-toting rebbes, and public transportation-using five year-olds, who accompany their three year-old siblings to school. Additionally, this great realm is comprised of: sunsets over Jerusalem, Eastern and Western traditions woven into local milestone celebrations, egrets, camels, and hyraxes, plus an awesome national medical system. Most importantly, Israel is this word's most concentrated sphere of supernal energy. Come taste the truth about this fantastic geography. Come read about Israel one essay at a time.
