Dr. Ruth Tweets From Israel

By at 2:20 pm

Dr-Ruth

By now, you’ve probably noticed on your newsfeed that some crazy shit is going down in Israel.

Luckily, sweet, little Dr. Ruth Westheimer, the 86-year-old, Holocaust-surviving, truth-telling sex therapist, is currently in the middle of the chaos sharing dispatches from the Holy Land.

And don’t worry, she’s not scared.

Her latest tweet:

The Haganah was Israel’s pre-state paramilitary unit that eventually became the IDF, and Westheimer was trained as a scout and sniper until she was seriously wounded during the Israeli War of Independence.

While we’re certainly reassured by the image of Dr. Ruth with an Uzi in hand, our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Israel and everyone affected by the recent violence.
