Senseless Hate =Tragedy

Charlottesville, Virginia was a sleepy little southern town until murder and mayhem not only woke up its citizens but the rest of the USA. Tragically, our country was treated to a show of violence and murder by “right wing” fascists as well as “left wing” fascists who declared the destruction of Southern monuments a viable tactic to destroy our country.Somehow, every news report forgot to mention the reason for the protest. All I heard for a couple of days was that the President didn’t say what the Fake Media, DemoratsDemocrats,Steven Hayes, Karl Rove and other assorted NeverTrumpsters wanted him to say because…. The rest of us are sick of it and all the senseless hate that our media appears to relish. We are at a flash point in our history and it is time to find common ground before it is too late.

Most Jews, even if they eat bacon three times a day go to synagogue on Yom Kippur. Although many people recognize that as a fast day they may be ignorant of another one,the commemoration of the destruction of our holy Jerusalem Temple-twice.Senseless or baseless hate, in Hebrew,sinat chinam, caused their destruction. This is not my opinion, but the conclusion of ancient Talmudic rabbis. For those who have no idea what I’m talking about The Talmud is a compendium of stories and Jewish laws written in about 200 AD. That’s over 2000 years ago! Unfortunately, our “brilliant” elites in fields like archeology and anthropology buy the cultural Marxism propaganda of ” all cultures are equal,” so the Maya, who had a savage and blood thirsty culture is held up as amazing and all Native American tribes are “peaceful.” Funny, but our own Judeo-Christian values is verboten in schools.Perhaps, if boys and girls learned that our country was built on the Judeo- Christian ethos of kindness and forgiveness it would be easier to find common ground.

I heard the president state that we all love our country. He said that no matter our race or religion, we are all Americans. I agree, but I’ve learned to keep my mouth shut because I have lost too many jobs because of my opinions.I’m afraid that if we continue down this road we will face G-d’s wrath and suffer our own destruction.Our country is at a terrible turning point. It is time to find things we agree about,instead of creating controversy. We don’t have to agree on everything, but we should agree that the first amendment gives us the right to have an opinion. Does anyone agree with his/her spouse 100% of the time? Siblings or children? What happened to discussions and compromise? Our country isn’t perfect. People aren’t perfect, but the Judeo- Christian ethic is ” Do not do to others what you don’t want done to you. ” stated by Hillel or ” “Do unto others as you want others to do to you.” stated by Jesus. It was said for a reason – the tragedy of senseless hate.

Israel: A G Rated Country

Many readers have wondered why I haven’t written for a while.  Simple, I reached my saturation point  writing about the unrelenting lies and abuses of our government. Luckily, I visited my daughter in Israel  for a few weeks and was able to recharge.  Ironically, the tiny country  was calm and peaceful, even after Arab terrorists murdered innocents including a young girl sleeping in her bed. The reason? They know who the enemy is, name it, and deal with it. Or, maybe, as my daughter told me when I asked her why she was moving there, it’s a G rated country

The true face of the IDF
The true face of the IDF

Even though modern Israel is only 68 years young, its accomplishments, beauty, and historical sites are world class and enviable; however,my daughter was specifically talking about the people and culture. Everywhere, except Tel Aviv (the New York City of Israel) around 3:00 on Fridays shops close up, mothers and grandmothers finish their shopping and start cooking for the Sabbath. Soldiers go home to their families, and if someone is a “lone soldier” he/she will be invited to someone’s home for the Sabbath. As I joked to my daughter after hearing so many young, masculune men talking to their “imas” or mothers on the phone, the most ferocious army in the world is a bunch of mommas’ boys!

I left Israel in 1980 when my home and business were taken as part of the  Israel-Egypt Peace Accord. I had only gone back once in thirty years, and that was only for a wedding.   The progress I have seen in the country is no less than miraculous. Thirty years ago it took  months to get a landline telephone. Now Israel is branded as one of the top tech sectors in the world. Unlike the incessant negative propaganda, Arab-Israelis  are part of the innovation and even created the world’s smallest computer. here Thirty years ago It was impossible to get a decent piece of red meat. Now, my daughter and I ate  hamburgers that would put my local diner to shame.

My daughter has a Christian Arab friend and out of curiosity asked him how he was treated differently by the government. She was surprised by his answer.  After thinking about it, he answered that he didn’t have to serve in the army or pay taxes. Interestingly, there has been a surge in Arab Israelis to enlist in the IDF. here  That doesn’t sound like apartheid to me. Apartheid is a system of laws that keep the races separate.  In Israel’s case it would mean keeping people of different religious faiths legally separated. Instead, all religions including Bahai and Druze live peacefully. The call to prayer from Muslim mosques can be heard in all parts of the country.

My biggest complaint is the confusing signage on the roads. Speaking of signage, one would think that in a country practicng apartheid, signs would only be written in Hebrew. Wrong; all signs are written in Hebrew, Arabic and English. If a country is  practicing apartheid would the beaches be open to all? My family and I went swimming at the beach in Haifa, right next to Arab families with women  covered from top to bottom in their body covering wetsuits.

All in all my trip was rejuvenating. Hiking and exploring the countryside is a national pastime. The variation in topography from the greenery of the northern hills to the stark Judean desert provides a sensory feast. The  different species of plants and flowers found everywhere is astounding. So I guess my daughter is right.  It’s a G rated country: G-d’s country.

 

The Three Jewish Quislings

f _the_ JewsimagesI’m sure you’ve heard of  The Three Tenors, The Three Stooges, and the Three Little Pigs.  How about the The Three Jewish Quislings? No? You might not realize it, because they normally go by the names of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Elena Kagan, and Stephen Breyer.  These are the three Jews that decided that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel- even when they weren’t asked.

The anti- Jewish Supreme Court decision was decided along a 6-3 line. The three Jewish justices fell right in line with the anti- Semitic Arabist State Department and our imperious Jew-hating president. Chief Judge John Roberts wrote, “Today’s decision is a first. Never before has this Court accepted a President’s direct defiance of an Act of Congress in the field of foreign affairs.” Our  elite and untouchable court Jews defied logic, stood against our Congress, and the sovereign country of Israel.

For the second time this case was brought in front of the Supreme Court because the Zinotovsky parents wanted their son, Menachem’s passport to list Jerusalem, Israel as his place of birth and not just Jerusalem. The rationale was that the American Congress had passed a law in 2002 directing the State Department to do so for anyone born in Jerusalem who requested it. The State Department refused. The arguments used by Mr Varelli, who represented the government, were specious but the Three Jewish Quislings accepted the State department rationale with not a moment of that famous Jewish guilt.

Jerusalem, eternal capital of Israel, is up for grabs according to those in power and they’ve chosen sides. The ignorant wise Latina Senorita Sotomayor added,“How could you tell me it’s not a lie? You, the United States, are being asked to put on the passport that you believe the place of birth of this individual is Israel, and … the executive has said, no, we don’t think it was Israel, we think it was Jerusalem.”

Any Jew who is still sleepwalking through the dire political mines that are set up everywhere  better wake up…and fast. Last week ZStreet got good news about its lawsuit against the IRS. The bad news is that the IRS admitted, “these cases are being sent to a special unit in the D.C. office to determine whether the organization’s activities contradict the Administration’s public policies.” This demonstrated that a pro-Israel organization was definitely targeted. Lori Lowenthal Marcus deserves our respect for fiercely defending the right for her organization (and other pro  Israel organizations)

The good, the bad and the ugly

How about the publicity leaks from the new Michael Oren book Ally? If there were still any doubt that this administration has been inordinately hostile to Israel, this accounting of Mr. Oren’s time as Israel’s ambassador chronicles all the left wing Jews and their deleterious presence in the Obama administration.

Last, but certainly not least, is the negative press and constant smearing of  Pamela Geller, who stands courageously steadfast against the Shariah and the jihadist who swear to destroy America, Israel, and her! Instead of every Federation and Jewish organization, like AIPAC, standing with a Jewish heroine they stand with our enemies just like the commies of Jewish heritage stood with Stalin and the enemies of G-d and freedom. Someday Ms. Geller will be honored in the pantheon of  Jewish women, like Deborah and Esther, but now the cowards, traitors, and haters  clamor for BDS, Geller’s head, and the destruction of Israel.

Our history is filled with heroes as well as traitors. Even when members of our own tribe  work against us, Jews  are commanded not to hate.  Disgusting attacks and lies come from the enemies of  Israell daily.  Rashi states that the enemies of Jews are actually the enemies of G-d. Observing the Lefties, who choose to call themselves Jews, I have to agree.  As I  watch our three Jewish justices  go down in history as the three justices who sold their souls, and the soul of America, for a mess of pottage  I  refuse  to hate them. Instead, I’ll cry for them and our country, and pray that G-d has mercy on us all.

The New Queen Esther

Pamela Geller Yesterday was the Fast of Esther, a fast that leads up to the joyous holiday of Purim.The story goes like this. With the help of her cousin Mordeccai and the pleas for G-d’s intervention the beautiful Queen Esther saved her people from Haman’s dastardly plot to kill all the Jews of Persia. Today that country is called Iran and it still wants to destroy all the Jews of Israel. When that job is complete – all Americans.
A few years ago I said to my husband that we need a contemporary Queen Esther. Now we have one. Kol Ha Kavod (all my respect) to the Creative Zionist Coalition for honoring Pamela Geller for the courage, intelligence, and sheer chutzpah she has demonstrated warning the American people about our most insidious enemy.
I don’t remember what year I started reading her blog Atlas Shrugs but it was still when she had her Supergirl-like logo, which I loved. Reading her blog answered the many questions I had about the spread of Islam throughout Europe as well as to the sovereign shores of the USA. Through her informative posts I was introduced to Bat Yeor’s essential tome Eurabia and the plan for a new Caliphate.

Ms. Geller didn’t stop with a blog, even after lawsuit after lawsuit. She didn’t stop even after murderous threats and emails. Instead she found her Mordeccai, David Yerushalami, and together they fight the Arab-Islamic forces that practice jihad by force or taquiya to destroy our country and make us second class citizens. She, with co-founder Robert Spenser created the organizations Stop the Islamization of America and the Freedom Defense League which have caused a lot of belligerency,kvetching, and lying from the ” Religion of Peace.”

She has stood shoulder to shoulder with the men of the EDL that are now in a British jail for standing up for their country. She has stood resolutely with Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, and almost single handedly brought down the Muslim crook Imam Rauf and his group of thugs and their plan to build the victory mosque on the blood of the Twin Towers.

On Purim Jews are supposed to get so wasted they can’t tell the difference between Mordaccai the hero and Haman the villain. It looks like our Office of Propaganda ( formerly known as the media) have been drinking more than the Koolaid because they can’t tell the difference between the good Ms. Geller and the nefarious forces of CAIR and its minions.

Mazel tov to the beautiful and courageous Ms. Geller our new Queen Esther.
