I'm Itai Jamshy, an IDF soldier in the Film Unit of Education Corps from Ramat Gan, Israel. I love film and want to grow up to be a director. I also love photography and this blog is meant for me to share my photos and daily insight with you :)
I woke up this morning early to pick up a good friend back home from her base, just to come back home and discover this:
And then, this:
It made me so, so, very, very , VERY happy.
And I owe it all to YOU, the followers, you give me confidence in my work and now I feel an even better reason to go out and take pictures!! I feel so grateful and I owe my thanks to each and every one of you, new and old. New for giving me this thumbs up and old for keeping following this blog (and my partially improper English), although I had a lot of rough and dry times in the army recently.
I wish all the new followers a ‘pleasant stay’ and I promise to keep up with my work!
Love you all so much!
P.S.: To all you photographers out there, keep the good work, my feed wouldn’t be so inspiring without you either.
Remember him? I took a picture of him more than a year ago. Then he was smiling. Today he’s tired and his business suffered because of the war.
First of all, it’s Zionism.
Second, what’s demonstrated now is a war that has nothing to do with Zionism. Zionism has already fulfilled itself when we got our own country. Ben Gurion, the first PM of IL said “Between choosing the whole land and a having our own Jewish country, we chose a Jewish country” and I still see this statement true to today (I wish our PM also saw it that way).
Hammas is manipulating the whole world by going to an all out war with a country it doesn’t stands a chance going against. And our country can’t stand still while the Hammas is building tunnels to go out in our territory and kill innocent citizens. They also sacrifice their own citizens to gain leverage. If it was happening in the US, they would’ve already wiped out the opposing country.
I’m an Israeli leftist, and a soldier and I truly hate this little war. I can’t say I’m proud of my country for going in on foot, but I can say they had good reasons, and that if we hadn’t, we could’ve have faced much worse consequences. I think both Hammas and the Israeli government DON’T want peace, because they both profit from a state of war. And who suffers the most? The common folk on both sides. And I think Zionism is to live in peace, and to resolve problems diplomatically, not violently.
So stop adding to the flame using words you don’t understand. We are all human beings.
