Articles by Tom Brennan

Tom Brennan's articles have appeared in The Times of Israel, Breaking Israel News, News from Jerusalem and Gem State Patriot. He "moves messages" from verifiable news sources to groups on Facebook.

Tom has combined his multiple careers in museums, archives, municipal management, small business and ranch management and Arabian Horse breeding and showing into his passion for study of the Middle East. Moving from the green but cluttered scene of the Boston Massachusetts region to the high desert of SW Idaho developed a long standing interest in the mindset of the Middle East, its various cultures and lifestyles. Managing ranches and the unique Arabian horse, developed survival and innovative skills city-dwellers only read about. Ranch life teaches you that knowing how to function and even thrive in a low tech environment is the key to the survival of your horses and livestock, and ultimately yourself. A lifelong interest in military history adds to the mix. After several unsuccessful tries to enter the Navy and then the Army, he eventually managed to get some experience as a Civil War reenactor with one of the best-drilled regiments in the country, the 28th Massachusetts where his respect for the real heroes who wore the uniform of all services grew even further. He studies, writes, researches and practices what he tries to preach from the high desert of SW Idaho.
