Two Great Women of the World

There are two women in the world who are surely not overlooked but I think under appreciated and not given the praise they deserve as great women. These women have so much in common, if I didn't know better I would think they are sisters. I don't know, but I have a sneaky suspicion that they both think of the other one as a sister.  These two great women of the world are: Naomi Ragen and Caroline Glick.  I am utterly proud to say both are Jewish and both are American-Israeli's.

Naomi Ragen
Naomi Ragen is an American born novelist, playwright, journalist and blogger with a great newsletter concentrating on Jewish and Israel news and concerns. Naomi Ragen moved to Israel in 1971 and has lived there since. She has recently documented her "40 years in Israel"

Naomi is a tireless advocate of women's rights in Israel.  On Aug 1, 2004 she was attacked by a religious fanatic because she refused to move to the back of the bus.

Naomi has published eight internationally best selling novels, and is the author of a hit play Women's Minyan.

Naomi is a brilliant writer who stands up for Israel with all her might. It is an honor to receive her newsletter in my e-mail. I know Israel is proud to have such a wonderful woman advocating on their side.  Here is Naomi's web site

Caroline Glick
Caroline Glick was born in Chicago and lived in America until 1991 where she went to Israel. She joined the Israel Defense Force and served as an officer for 5 1/2 years. She was a foreign policy advisor to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from 1997-1998.  In 1998 she went back to the United States to receive her Masters in Public Policy.  She moved back to Israel in 2000 where she lives today. She became a great journalist for the Jerusalem Post where, like Naomi, she has been a tireless advocate for Israel and Jews.  Caroline is now the Deputy Managing Director of the Jerusalem Post.  She is also the senior fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs at the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC where she travels several times a year to  routinely brief senior administration officials and members of Congress on issues of joint Israeli-American concern.

Here is just a sample of  Caroline Glick's great articles    J-Street and the Jewish war against Israel
Along with the brilliant Charles Krauthammer, I don't think I look forward to a column by anyone more than Caroline Glick.

Here is Caroline Glick's web site
You can tell by their words that these women love life and all of humanity. You can also tell by their words their passion in their love of Israel. 

Naomi and Caroline thank you so much for all you do for the state of Israel and for Jews and for all of humanity.

Every Blessing to you, two great women of the world!
