Perhaps some of you have seen this bumper sticker plastered all over the Shomron. I sure have.
"Ani Tapu'ah...." (English: I'm an apple, you're an apple, we're all apples.)
At first I thought that it was a new sticker put out by my town, K'far Tapu'ah (...close to the Eiyn Tapu'ah mentioned in the Book of Joshu'a 17:7-8, by the way).
By accident, I found out that the "Ani Tapu'ah" Campaign has absolutely nothing to do with K'far Tapu'ah,...well mostly it doesn't. There is a tiny, after the fact, connection.
You see, the initiator of the "Ani Tapu'ah" Campaign, blogger Doodle Head (now Head Of Doodle, as I suppose that name was already taken on Blogspot) and a friend of my house mate, spent Shabbath Hanukkah by us! He didn't even mention the campaign,...at least I don't remember him mentioning it to me, nor did he bring us any complementary bumper stickers! This is, of course, a grievance which must aired next year on Festivus. But, I digress....
Anyway, Doodle Head does happen to be a nice guy, and a very easy and accomodating house guest.
But, for the life of me, I cannot figure out what the whole point of the "Ani Tapu'ah" Campaign is.
Don't get me wrong. It's a great idea...getting people to identify with the residents of a particular town in the Shomron. But that's now what it's about.
Please let me know if you figure it out.
Inquiring minds want to know.
