Just a few thoughts ...

In Boro Park, a little boy was tragically lost to his parents and Klal Yisrael, that to me seemed to be a korban for the community. It is still difficult to fathom what really happened. All we know is really how the entire community responded, together with law enforcement personnel and ordinary people from all over the country. This tragedy touched everyone in a different way. Many are left with a gnawing feeling inside, and some with sleepless nights. The New York Jewish Communities have had their difficult moments grappling with child abuse.

In Eretz Yisrael, Thurs. evening, two events that have ramifications for Israelis and Klal Yisrael. In Yerushalayim there was a march of protestors along Rehov Agron, down Rehov Ramban and over to the Prime Minister's home near Aza. The chanting, clanging, yelling, a cacophony of noises by Israelis with an agenda and a mission, that some detest, some are ambivalent to, and some in support. These people want 'equality'. Where are they prevented from living they way they want to? Is it necessary to flaunt their lifestyle in the faces of everyone?

While in Be'er Sheva, Rabbi Elazar Abuhatzeira was 'murdered' while receiving the public. He was the grandson of the "Baba Sali". What is going on? This is so weird, but also must be another korban. The fact that someone not in his right mind did this reminds us of the tortured soul of the perpetrator in the Boro Park tragedy.

However Rabbi Abuchatzeira, a kabbalist, was able to intercede on behalf of many of his followers, and for Klal Yisrael in Shomayim; he is no longer able to do 'down here,' but only 'up there'.

I don't pretend to have answers, just an observation. Two murders sandwiched around something that is considered an aberation to the Jewish way of life by many people, and the Torah. It may be something, but then it might not. It's enough to occupy the minds of the Jewish Nation for many days to come.

That First Rashi ...

Was, Is and Will Be the best response to the same dribble spewing forth from our enemies. But the People of Eretz Yisrael must understand this, believe this and act upon these words of wisdom from Rashi. His foresight and wisdom was for us to know and use. Our Father in Shomayim is waiting for his children to invoke this rule.

Since 2009 we are hearing the same rhetoric from the other side. Barry Rubin reports that their so-called moderate has made the following response in an interview:

"Nabil Shaath: The recognition of a [Palestinian] state is basically a bilateral action, which receives the blessing of the UN. This act, however, will make many things possible in the future. Eventually, we will be able to sign bilateral agreements with states, and this will enable us to exert pressure on Israel. At the end of the day, we want to exert pressure on Israel, in order to force it to recognize us and to leave our country. This is our long-term goal. "

"The story of "two states for two peoples" means that there will be a Jewish people over there and a Palestinian people here. We will never accept this – not as part of the French initiative and not as part of the American initiative. We will not sacrifice the 1.5 million Palestinians with Israeli citizenship who live within the 1948 borders, and we will never agree to a clause preventing the Palestinian refugees from returning to their country..."

Read more of Barry Rubin's commentary at Pajamas Media.

So, their long-term goal is to populate all the countries of the world, install Islam and Shariah law to rule and as such bring all the nations together against Israel, to get rid of Israel [ed. and the Jews] and pick up where they left off in the Sixth Century. Back we go into the Future!

"Nothing has changed and nothing will change"

This is from Wednesday, November 4, 2009: Asleep at the Wheel of Hashgacha Pratis

THIS IS WHAT G-D SAID:

"God said to Abram ... Go forth for yourself from your country”… “and from your birthplace” … “to the Land which I will show you” …”I shall make a great nation out of you” … “I shall bless those who bless you” … ”and all the families of the world will receive a blessing thanks to you.” (Bereshis, Parsha Lech Lecha)

"FOR IF THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD SHOULD SAY TO ISRAEL":

“You are robbers, because you have siezed by force the lands of the seven nations” (Canaan) they could say to them, “The entire world belongs to the Holy One, Blessed Be He, He created it and gave it to whomever it was right in his eyes. Of His own will He gave it to them and of His own will He took it from them and gave it to us.” (Yalkut, Ex 12.2)

NOT THE LIES THAT A PALESTINIAN HISTORIAN
OR A SENIOR PLO OFFICIAL WHEN HE SAYS
WE WERE NEVER IN THE LAND
AND THAT THEY ARE THE RIGHTFUL OCCUPIERS


Are we Jews asleep at the wheel of hashgacha pratis!

The first Rashi in the Torah should speak to us loudly. Rashi tells us what to say “when” and not “if” they call us robbers; Rashi tells us to ‘be NOT TIMID, be PROUD OF OUR YERUSHA, STAND UP AND ANNOUNCE TO THE WORLD THAT Eretz Yisrael is our God-given HOME.’ The Bible states Hashem gave it to us, now we have to EARN IT.

Now, the Nations of the World are in fact calling us “robbers,” the Nations of [36,025,880 million] Arabs are challenging our God-given yerusha of Eretz Yisrael.

Rashi gave us the text, now we must stand firm behind these words. The Muslim and non-Muslim world is waiting for our collective pronouncement by the State of Israel and by the People of Yisrael.

Arab unrest is dauntingly challenging our sovereignty over the Jewish Holiest place in the entire world, our Har Habayit, the Temple Mount and what the Holy Torah (Bible) says. Every non-Jew that has read the Old Testament of their Bible knows this to be true.

This is from Sunday, September 6, 2009
Now is the time to invoke Rashi and HaShem

This Rashi Is Not For the
United Nations – It is For Us!

The first Rashi in Bereshis says: Rav Yitzchak states that the Torah should have begun with "This month is for you..." [Shmos Chapter 12] (the first commandment, which involves the establishment of the holiday cycles on a lunar basis). Why did the Torah begin with the narration of creation? Because "The power of His works He declared to His people in giving them the inheritance of the nations" (Tehilim 111:6) For if the nations of the world should say to Israel: "You are robbers, because you have seized by force the lands of the seven nations of Canaan, they could say to them "The entire world belongs to the Holy One Blessed be He, He created it and gave it to whomever it was right in His eyes. Of His own will He gave it to them and of His own will He took it from them and gave it to us."

"Nothing has changed and nothing will change" until we hear more voices calling for expanding settlements, and building new ones, in Judea & Samaria.

THE TRUTH IS Jews Not Welcome in Norway

OR
(can you hear off in the distance the sound of clicking boots in goose-step precision?)


BECK SAYS:
"There was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler youth. I mean, who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing," ....

As usual insightful, biting and truthful [and a bit prophetic].

Torbjørn Eriksen SAYS: the former press secretary to Norway's prime minister, "Young political activists have gathered at Utoya for over 60 years to learn about and be part of democracy, the very opposite of what the Hitler Youth was about," Eriksen told The Daily Telegraph. "Glenn Beck's comments are ignorant, incorrect and extremely hurtful," ...

The Hitler Youth to which Beck referred
was a paramilitary organization
of the fascist Nazi Party
comprised of teens and preteens
that existed from 1922 to 1945.

Who Are They Kidding?
Not Alan M. Dershowitz!

ALAN DERSHOWITZ SAID in the WSJ: OPINION PIECE March 29, 2011 – "Norway to Jews: You're Not Welcome Here - Anti-Semitism doesn't even mask itself as anti-Zionism."

AND SAID THIS TO ARUTZ SHEVA – "The renowned lawyer and author spoke at the Beit Chabad in Oslo, startling the audience with his account of the reactions he received from the country’s political and academic leadership"

Petition Against Israel's Existence
AND – "Dershowitz came to Norway at the invitation of the ICEJ (International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem), and was invited by NTNU students independently of the university. Lubavitch.com reported that the professor read aloud the first line of a petition prepared by Norwegian professors to boycott Israel, showing the students that it is not occupation, but rather the existence of the State of Israel altogether that bothers Norwegian academics: 'Since 1948 the State of Israel has occupied Palestinian land'…”


Against Shechitah, In Favor of Seal-Butchering
AND THIS – When it comes to its record on Israel and the Jews, Dershowitz said, “Norway is the worst country in the world… it is on the wrong side of history, morality and democratic values. It permits the butchering of seals and whales, but does not allow the most humane means of animal slaughter” simply because it is needed by Jews.

Now They're After Hadassah Hosp? Mt. Scopus?

Are they trying to intimidate and take over Hadassah Hospital?

This is awful (to say the least) and what is the Government doing about it?

Try to "engage the arabs."

Yes, let's offer them tea and crumpets to find out what their grievance is this time!

You don't dispel terrorists with tea and crumpets!


Arab Terrorists Frighten Away Hadassah Doctors. "Jerusalem Arabs’ escalating attacks on Hadassah’s Mount Scopus Hospital are scaring away medical staff at night. The Knesset suggest “engaging” the Arabs. The hospital, situated north of the Old City and next to the French Hill neighborhood, also is adjacent to the Issawiya neighborhood, where Arabs have increasingly staged attacks on Jews driving through the area as well as on the hospital. Nearly 40 percent of the hospital’s patients are Arabs." (INN news)

More Unraveling of a Presidency

Excellent article in the Washingon Times entitled, Is Obama A Pathological Liar.

Joseph Curl: "Watching the one-third-of-a-term-senator-turned-president negotiate brings to mind a child spinning yarns about just how the living room lamp got broken. Now, though, the grown-ups are in charge; the kids have been put to bed. Ten days ago, the president warned the speaker: “Dont call my bluff.” Well, Mr. Boehner has. He’s holding all the cards — and he’s not bluffing."

*****
If he is indeed a Narcissist, there may be an ugly retort to being side-tracked in these negotiations on the future of America. Expert: Obama Dangerous Narcissist?

*****

Krauthammer said:
“This is Obama at his most sanctimonious, demagogic, self-righteous and arrogant,” Krauthammer said. “And given the baseline, it wasn’t a pretty sight. Look, he started out by summoning the leaders of Congress – summoning on them at 11:00, who does he think he is? In the American system, the executive and Congress are coequal … The way he demanded their appearance in the Oval Office I thought was disgraceful...."

*****
One way to describe the American predicament, other than the end of it's hegemony in the world, is neatly explained here:

"The old order, constructed by most democracies after World War II, rested on three pillars. One was the welfare state. Government would protect the unemployed, aged, disabled and poor. Capitalism would be tamed. A second was faith in economic growth; this would raise everyone’s living standards while permitting income redistribution. Growth was ordained, because economists had learned enough from the 1930s to cure periodic recessions. Finally, global trade and finance served countries’ mutual interests. All three pillars are wobbling...."

Does this not signal that after the second of the three wars of Gog Umagog the world equation changed, in order to allow Eretz Yisrael to develop, build and flourish.

Now that Israel is established and becoming more independent, we are ready for the next phase. And this is that the Goldene Medina is to lose it's hierarcy in the world, to eventually make room for Moshiach, completion of the ingathering and the fulfillment of the prophecies.

IY"H in our days

The World is Sitting on a Precipice

Finally someone can stand up to Barack Hussein Obama and tell him that "Congress makes the laws, and the President has to work within them!" [a little Scorpion stings a narcisstic lion]









Politico has minute by minute coverage of the teetering Obama Presidency.


Meanwhile ...

To what purpose the slaughter in Oslo, Norway? [maybe to signal that the Oslow accords are dead?]

In Texas and Seattle, outbreaks of violence happening in Chicago, New York, Florida, Philly, attest to the "Savageism" that Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.

Why?

Because the Liberal policies implanted in the American way of life, is unraveling all that is decent, honest and moral. These were the principles by which America was founded by their "Founding Fathers".

Much like our Avos led the way for creating a people and Nation based on Jewish moral principles given to us by our Father in Shomayim. The G-d of the universe knows what is good for His children, and hence the entire world.

When Nations veer away from the moral priciples (7 mitzvos of Bnei Noach) that founded civilization, the peoples of the world descend into chaos and moral depravity. We are seeing this happen with our own eyes.

The American Thinker calls it "Chicken Liberals."

By Far The BEST Written Piece: Avenging Leiby Kletzky

Everyone has their personal perspective on this horrific tragedy that has engulfed and at the same time brought closer together the greater Jewish Community. However, to me, this article deals with many truths that others fail to see, distort, or deny.

From a Weekly Op-Ed by Simon Jacobson. Below are some excerpts, please go to the full article and read this amazing piercing truth:


Silence and Words

At an open grave one does not console. The sheer pain is too intense, the open wound too fragile. Thus, I could not bring myself to pontificate and write about last week’s horrific murder of Leiby Kletzky a”h.

But now as we conclude the seven-day shiva period, perhaps some words are in order – despite the fact that the tragedy and its aftershocks have not abated.

Indeed, just like there is a time to be silent there is also a time to speak. Because we Jews have learned that we don’t ask “why;” we ask “what.” When it comes to “why” – why terrible things happen – we are silent; but when it comes to “what” – what can we do – then we have much to say.

We may never know why a little innocent boy had to make the wrong turn and meet the wrong man – if one can call him that – only to be torn away from his family in such a brutal manner, forever. But as much as we do not know why, we do know with absolute certainty that we can and must do something about it.

[. . .]

Save Our Children

The opposite end of the spectrum of a child being hurt is a child being helped; a child being saved.

Leiby’s death was the epitome of betrayal - a defenseless child left to the wolves. And the horrific manner of his death, only amplifies the betrayal.

Just to be clear: Leiby was not betrayed by his parents. They are the most wonderful, loving parents any child could dream of. Just listen to the words of Leiby’s brokenhearted father at the funeral…

He was betrayed by society. By an environment in which children can be hurt. By a world that allows predators to thrive.

[. . .]

Leiby’s death should wake us up that enough is enough. Enough of adults indulging in their own needs, leaving children vulnerable, victims in their wake, undefended and unprotected.

Enough minimizing and pushing our children’s hurt under the rug.

Enough sitting by as schools and camps become environments where children can be harmed.

Enough of broken and dysfunctional homes, battlefields where children are left to be slaughtered.

Enough is enough.

The Unraveling of a Presidency or No More Lemonade

Here is a sampling of the frustration that public servants are disgusted:

"
Every aspect of life in America today is worse than it was when [President Obama] took over. Unemployment higher. Interest rates. The only thing that has gone down in America over the last two years is the value of your home. This president has mismanaged this economy. He has been incompetent in his management of this economy," Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said on "Hannity." Rubio

"The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don't invest, their holding too much money. We haven't heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists. Everybody's afraid of the government and there's no need soft peddling it, it's the truth. It is the truth. And that's true of Democratic businessman and Republican businessman, and I am a Democratic businessman and I support Harry Reid. I support Democrats and Republicans. And I'm telling you that
the business community in this company is frightened to death of the weird political philosophy of the President of the United States. And until he's gone, everybody's going to be sitting on their thumbs." Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts.


RNC Says Obama Fundraising Video '
Apparent Crime,' Seeks DOJ Probe: The Republican National Committee has asked the Justice Department to investigate what it calls a matter of “grave concern:” President Obama’s appearance in a campaign video filmed inside the White House. “If President Obama recorded the video in the Map Room, then it appears he has committed a crime under federal law,” RNC chairman Reince Priebus wrote in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder.

It's a Pressure Cooker ... Things Are Heating Up In America

$1 Trillion in New Taxes

The heat's on in DC. Countdown to August 2. Defying a veto threat, the Republican-controlled House voted Tuesday night to slice federal spending by $6 trillion and require a constitutional balanced budget amendment to be sent to the states in exchange for averting a threatened Aug. 2 government default.


Ron Paul: "We Will Default Because The Debt Is Unsustainable" Real Clear Politics Video

"When a country is indebted to the degree that we’re indebted, the country always defaults. We will default because the debt is unsustainable," Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) said on the House floor today. "If we don’t understand this, this default will not be because we don't send out the checks. We will send out the checks. It will be defaulted on because people will get their money back, or they will get their Social Security checks and it won't buy anything."

Washington DC – NOAA predicts heat index of 116 Friday.
Richmond, Va. – NOAA projects its heat index will soar to a stifling 118 degrees.




Meanwhile, American citizens are roasting in an extreme heat wave that is causing extreme drought, deaths, and blistering temperatures. It is sweltering more than 40 states, rolling from the mid-states area toward DC and the eastern coastline. Once again devasting farmland that will take years to recover. The US may be headed toward food shortages, unbelievable for it's size.

"Much of the United States is trapped under a heat "dome" caused by a huge area of high pressure that's compressing hot, moist air beneath it, leading to miserable temperatures in the mid-90s to low 100s and heat-index levels well above 100 degrees. The oppressive conditions extend from the northern Plains states to Texas and from Nebraska to the Ohio Valley. And they're expanding eastward."

Bridge closes for heat-related repairs in Connecticut: "Recent high temperatures seem to have caused the expansion of the bridge's truss, and have forced the intermittent closure of the bridge."

Al Kiddush HaShem




“Here lies my child. Purity of heart.
Very quiet and very respectful.
Satisfied and never demanding.
I’m in very deep sorrow,”

Nachman Kletzky said as he choked up.

"He cried and shrieked during his speech, leading a crowd of thousands of faithful at a Borough Park synagogue in prayer and tears."

"They spoke and chanted in Yiddish, stressing the community’s resilience and unity after what one called an unnatural death."

One blogger noted the date ... 7/11/11

Now the family will have 7 days of Shiva (
is a time for mourners to express their sorrow and offer comfort upon the passing of a loved one) ending with the 17th of Tammuz.

The 17th of Tammuz (when we fast over the breach of the walls of Jerusalem by the besieging ancient Romans (Ist century C.E.) Are we not faced with this same situation in our Holy Yerushalayim?

And the beginning of the 3 weeks leading to the National Calamity of Klal Yisroel on the 9th of Av – Tisha B'Av – when the people didn't listen to G-d and enter Eretz Yisrael ... so we cry every year at this time

Am Yisrael, Take this to Heart,
we are reliving the same challenge, to come together in respect and compassion for one another, to come to Eretz HaKadosh (the beautiful land that HaShem gave to us), to strengthen the Land and gather all our People from all over the world, to be a Holy Nation to HaShem.

Now, That's Cool

What is going on in Washington?
















The President and Congress
are in a Battle.

Who
is going to
Win?

Barack Obama makes a stand on debt and finally loses his cool:
"It has taken two and a half years, but Barack "Drama" Obama has finally lost his cool." One Cool Dude!

He didn't get his way, so he stomps his feet and runs away:
"He walked out of a meeting with Republican congressional leaders on deficit reduction, telling them "enough was enough"."

A nice southern phrase:
"In a press conference on Monday he ruled out a temporary agreement on raising the US debt limit, insisting "we might as well do it now – pull off the Band-Aid, Eat our Peas".

Over at San Francisco Chronicle, Debra Saunders, had this to say:
"Obama's Debt Ceiling "Grand Bargain" No Such Thing"
Me? I can't get past the suspicion that the "grand bargain" is one big gimmick. For one thing, Obama opposed a similar compromise in February, after bipartisan fiscal hawks Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson released their plan to save $4 trillion. And: Obama has yet to release his plan in writing."

"Billed as the "grand bargain" - the adult compromise because it has something for everyone to hate. The package would raise the $14 trillion debt ceiling (which the public hates), raise taxes by $1 trillion (which Republicans hate) and cut spending by $3 trillion (which Democrats hate) over 10 years. As the president argued in Monday's news conference, it's time for Washington to eat its peas.


Why, even his favorite hometown of Chicago is gunning for him:
"North suburban Republican Congressman Joe Walsh has a new YouTube video on his website – where he tells President Barack Obama to “quit lying” about the impact of not raising the national debt ceiling by Aug. 2."


A Big Texan, with blazing guns smoking, gave some advice:
(regarding Obama's Social Security Threat that would compromise American Seniors and all the Americans living in Israel on pension).
"Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-Texas) advised House Speaker John Boehner to “quit believing the president” when he insists that the debt ceiling must be increased by August 2nd." ..."the fact is if he’ll do his homework he’ll find there is such a thing called the Social Security Trust fund, and the Social Security Trust fund will be able to pay seniors their checks for many months to come even if Congress does nothing.” CNS News

Why, even his own cousin could bend his ear:
The devastation caused by Obamanomics is now undeniable by Dr. Milton R. Wolf, a board-certified diagnostic radiologist and cousin of President Obama: “The eye does not see what the mind does not know.” The difference between your patient’s life and death, my professors would warn, is what you see, and you cannot see what you do not know. Barack Obama cannot see a way out of America’s current economic malaise. He should ask the Germans what they know.

"Obamanomics has produced the weakest, most anemic recovery since the 1930s, when another generation’s big-government planners turned their great recession into the Great Depression. To be fair, President George W. Bush certainly did not give the best economic handoff - he too was addicted to spending - but to be clear, President Obama has unarguably fumbled the ball. He has, to borrow his own phrase, put his “boot on the neck” of American businesses with his increased taxes and regulatory burden; he has grown government with his wildly increased spending and outright take-overs; and he has weakened the dollar with his “quantitative easing” printing press."

"One bold German economist who understood the power of freedom dared to disagree. In a swift and masterful move on June 20, 1948 - a Sunday - economic director Ludwig Erhard freed the German market (and the people) by abolishing most of the restrictive price controls and other burdensome governmental regulations while he simultaneously solidified monetary policy with the introduction of the deutsche mark. The American Keynesians and German socialists were aghast but Erhard was quickly proven right."

This is looks like the 2011
version of OK Corral



The Silent Inner Cry of Anguish

I write this out of immense grief. I didn't know the Kletzky Family, or maybe I would have recognized them on the street, because they live around the corner from where I used to live in Boro Park. My neighbors. All Jews are my family. I have been following this story from the early hours of its reporting, practically glued to my iMac and iPad with much hope. Then yesterday (Israeli time) when the horrific results were found, I was frozen in grief and the thoughts swirled around in my head for hours. There is so much to say but words are inadequate to fathom the deep sorrow for the family blended with a desire to shower them with immense love. So, last evening I wrote the following.


The Silent Inner Cry of Anguish

Today is an immensely sad day. I cannot even imagine how the mother of a pure, innocent 9 year old boy feels after waiting to meet him as he walked home from day camp. He never made it to his mother. Little Leiby Kretzky is no longer with us, he has been called to Shomayim as a pure Korban.

In Boro Park, Flatbush and Williamsburg, Brooklyn, most Jewish religious children go away to summer camp beginning the July 4th weekend, for 8 weeks until the week before their school begins in the fall. And then others go to camp for either the first half, or the second half of the hot steamy summer.

Leiby was staying in Boro Park for the summer, and his parents sent him to the Boyan Day Camp, near 44th Street and 12th Avenue. Yehuda ben Ita Esther z”l or Leiby as he was called pleaded with his mother to let him walk half way home. He was feeling like a big boy, ready to be a little independent. Young boys from religious “frum” families are very very dear to their mothers, and he was the only boy with 4 sisters. The mother watch over them and worry 24/7 that they should be safe and happy, crying into their Sefer Tehillim for divine assistance in raising all their children, mothers especially are aware that we are living in not so safe times.

Nine year old Leiby, went with his day camp on a trip that day. He probably was feeling very elated having seen new and exciting things. Maybe he even was a bit disoriented as he started his walk to meet his mother at 13th Avenue and 50th Street. She had agreed only on condition that she was to meet him half way. Maybe the new adventure was still being processed in his memory, and for a split second he lost his orientation.

The frum people in the area were out in the thousands, from the moment word spread quickly, trying to search and give whatever help that they could. This is a special trait of yidden, to care immensely for one another. This is Councilman Dov Hikind’s district and he takes every family issue personally and jumps into the action to get things moving in the right direction. The local police, Hatzalah members, and ordinary fathers were all out trying to find little Leibey. A Command Center was set up to field all information. Surveillance cameras from neighborhood businesses were all scruitinized to the time of little Leibey’s walk home, and it was because of these videos that the Police were able to put together much of the information. However, it was the Siyata d’Shmaya (divine insight) of one police officer driving by a suspicious dumpster who actually found the evidence, and from there they found the murderer (who showed the police where ‘all’ the [gruesome] evidence was). He had a beard, wore a white shirt and dark pants. He lived in Kensington - an area of mixed cultures. The way little Leibey sent his pure Neshoma to Shomayim was in the manner of a Korban, only without the fire.

The father who was shown video footage from one surveillance camera, during one particular scene where he identified his son, kept saying with tears in his eyes, “Where are you going, where are you going?” “What are you doing?”

We now know where he was going and what happened to Yehuda ben Ita Esther. The big question is “WHY?” Why do we Jews need another Korban? What are we doing that we should not be doing? What can we do to prevent these type of horrific tragedies? What does HaShem want from us? These are just some of the question we should be asking ourselves. Especially now that the Three Weeks are coming upon us, ending with Tisha B’Av, our national day of mourning.

We are indeed living in perilous days. Jewish Mothers of young children need to guard them scrupulously, never leaving them alone for an instant, because that’s all it takes for something to happen. Especially our pure Jewish children, who are innocent of the world and dedicated to Hashem’s laws and ways from conception and birth, through their school years, Bar Mitzva, and up to their marriage. Once married and sharing life with a wife, they begin their world of intensive learning and bringing children into the world–and the cycle begins anew.

Another little Korban before the Three Weeks.

They found little Leiby Kletzky in a dumpster in Park Slope. That evil wicked perverted animal should receive everything and more that he deserves, slowly and painfully. Three guesses as to "who" did this, because of what he did to him!

Obama Blackmail


Obama says he cannot guarantee Social Security checks will go out on August 3

"I cannot guarantee that those checks will go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it,"

So there you have it, a threat from the President of the United States! He's using the seniors in a ploy to make Boehner capitulate to his (O's) demands. Read the entire interview at CBS's Political HotSheet.

"A "real solution" to U.S. fiscal problems isn't possible as long as President Barack Obama remains in office," says Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

My suggestion, if you, President Barack Hussein Obama, would ever listen, is to take the money you are going to hold back from Pakistan and use that for the August Social Security checks; that is, if you really care about people!



And this brings to mind the End of Days blog and Dov Bar-Leib's analysis of 1 July 2011.

So Carolina House of Representatives ...

Proclamation to the Israeli People

First seen on COLLIVE

6/2/2011
A HOUSE RESOLUTION

House Resolution
Sponsors: Reps. Clemmons, Sellers, Hardwick, D.C. Moss, Bedingfield, G.R. Smith, Hosey, Henderson, McCoy, Sottile, Norman, Delleney, Pope, Hiott, Skelton, Parker, Pinson, J.M. Neal, Willis, Pitts, Atwater, Quinn, Bingham, Allison, Crawford, Lowe, Loftis, Forrester, Chumley, Patrick, Long, Neilson, Brannon, Daning, Crosby, Anderson, G.A. Brown, Limehouse, J.R. Smith, Bales and Thayer.

TO COMMEND THE NATION OF ISRAEL FOR ITS RELATIONS WITH THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND WITH THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA.

Whereas, Israel has been granted her lands under and through the oldest recorded deed as reported in the Old Testament, a tome of scripture held sacred and reverenced by Jew and Christian, alike, as the acts and words of God; and

Whereas, as the Grantor of said lands, God stated to the Jewish people in the Old Testament; in Leviticus, Chapter 20, Verse 24: "Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey"; and

Whereas, God has never rescinded his grant of said lands; and

Whereas, along with the grant of said lands to the Jewish people, God provided for the non-Jewish residents of the land in commanding that governance must be in one law for all without drawing distinction between Jewish and non-Jewish citizens, as contained in Leviticus 24:22; and

Whereas, the Nation of Israel declared its independent control and governance of said lands on May 14, 1948, with the goal of reestablishing their God-given lands as a homeland for the Jewish people; and

Whereas, the United States of America, having been the first country to recognize Israel as an independent nation and as Israel's principal ally, has enjoyed a close and mutually beneficial relationship with Israel and her people; and

Whereas, indeed, Israel is the United States of America's greatest friend in the Mideast; and

Whereas, the roots of Israel and the roots of the United States are so intertwined that it is difficult to separate one from the other under the word and protection of almighty God; and

Whereas, there are those in the Middle East who have sought to destroy Israel from its inception as a nation; and

Whereas, those same haters of Israel also hate, and seek to destroy, the United States of America; and

Whereas, the State of South Carolina and the nation of Israel have enjoyed cordial and mutually beneficial relations since 1948, a friendship that continues to strengthen with each passing year. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, commend the nation of Israel for its relations with the United States of America and with the State of South Carolina.

Be it further resolved that the members of this body support Israel in their natural and God-given right of self-governance and self-defense upon their own lands, recognizing that Israel is neither an attacking force nor an occupier of the lands of others, and that peace can be afforded the region only through a united Israel governed under one law for all people.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Speaker of the House of Representatives of each of South Carolina's sister states within the United States of America with the request and recommendation of this body that a similar resolution to that stated herein be proposed within their respective bodies.

More Jews Coming Home and

The Ingathering Continues ...

Nefesh B'Nefesh brought 245 Americans to their Homeland

And now
Arutz Sheva has some exciting news:

Historic breakthrough: "Six centuries after their forcible conversion," Rabbi Nissim Karelitz rules that the Mallorca Chuetas are Jews.

"Shavei Israel Chairman Michael Freund revealed that Rabbi Nissim Karelitz recently issued a written opinion stating clearly and unequivocally that the Chuetas are part of the people of Israel. Freund works to bring “hidden Jews” back into the regular Jewish community and has led the effort to gain recognition of the Chuetas as Jews."

Historic Story at
Arutz Sheva

Who are the Chuetas?



The Xuetes (Catalan pronunciation: [ʃuˈətə]; singular Xueta, also known as Xuetons), were a social group on the island of Majorca, descendants of Majorcan Jews who either converted to Christianity or were forced to keep their religion hidden. They practiced strict endogamy.

The Xuetes were stigmatized and until the first half of the 20th century, but then by the second half of that century, with the spread of religious freedom and laicism, both the social pressure and community ties eventually vanished. Nowadays an estimated 18,000 people in the island carry Xueta surnames, but only a small fraction of the society (including those with Xueta surnames themselves) is self-aware of the troubled history of this group. More about them at
Wikipedia.

Also an article appeared in the
New York Times.

American Renewal ... Israeli Renewal

If the sane and sensible plain people of America decide to vote out the hypocrites and phonies, then the Israelis (in their admiration for all things American) may decide also for a change of heart and politicians.

My Vote goes to:


Thaddeus McCotter* for President
and
Michelle Bachmann or Sarah Palin for Vice President

For a renewed America


*"Rep. McCotter is a quirky, likable, and quotable guy who has an easy rapport with working-class voters. He'll push the Republican field on China and manufacturing, and he offers stronger policies on these issues than Romney, Huntsman, or Santorum, who have also talked up the industrial sector." McCotter at Batchelor

About McCotter "The announcement in Michigan . . . followed by energy, wit, aggression and a story to tell about reawakening American manufacturing"

"The strength of McCotter's run is summarized neatly by Scott Paul, a professional labor and manufacturing voice in a blog on Politico: the Reagan Democrats will decide 2012 in the Midwestern Rust Belt, and will they buy POTUS Obama's pitch of a shining future of green jobs, or Mitt Romney's pitch of managed financial resources, or McCotter's pitch of rebuilding America's manufacturing-week retail jobs without healthcare?"

"Mr. McCotter was one of only eight House Republicans last week to vote to authorize the use of American force in Libya. "He's eclectic," said Rep. Peter King (R., N.Y.), a friend of Mr. McCotter. "He is definitely a Republican from the Reagan Democrat school."

*___________________________*
Well, I know I now live in Eretz Yisrael, and I continue to write about America ... but the good plain people of America are in the position of renewing the American principles that created the U.S. to begin with. If they cannot vote out the deceivers there may no longer be any hope for the future of the country.

Hmm, Another Tsunami Warning

New Zealand On Tsunami Alert
(Wednesday, July 6th, 2011)

A powerful 7.8-magnitude earthquake strikes off the Kermadec Islands near New Zealand, triggering a tsunami warning, Reuters reports. The earthquake is about 1,000 miles from New Zealand’s mainland, NewsTalk Radio in New Zealand tells Fox News.

The Pacific Tsunami Center said waves were 2.2-2.7 feet high around Raoul Island. It also estimated that waves would reach East Cape in New Zealand, within two hours and Auckland within three hours of the quake, reported Reuters.


Didn't New Zealand ban Kosher Slaughter?

Wake Up! Good People of The World

"The struggle against the establishment of Torat Yisrael in the world did not start in our generation, but was even in the time of Avraham Avinu. Against Avraham they also conducted an investigation, and they threw him into a furnace. So it was throughout the generations, the battle against truth continues to this very day...

"The Jewish people need to return to its ancestral lands. All the terrorists around us need to be resettled in their original lands. Give them the right of return to their original lands and only then will we have peace and security...

"The avoda zara of our generation is democracy. Once it was the Baal, and the Ashtarot, and now it is democracy. Where democracy has become the style of governance, it has turned into a value. That is good for people who live a life of promiscuity, as they don't want to control themselves..


-Chief Rabbi of Kiryat Arba Dov Lior
[Quote of the Day from Life in Israel]

Read the JPost opinion piece by Tzipora Pinner, "The King's Torah - A Clash of Values".

Excerpt: "The real issue is the distinction Halacha draws between Jews and non-Jews. This is grossly at odds with political correctness, which outlaws any reference to differences of ethnic origin or faith. This is also what causes the panic in the secular, left-wing sector and the political echelon. It’s the fear that the Western, non- Jewish world might take offense at this lack of “equality” and “enlightenment” as reflected in a book on religious law and warfare."

'Political Correctness' is an age-old problem and a very left-thinking ideology. For some reason, there is an element of Jews who do not believe in being Jewish, relating to G-d, and acknowledging that there is a Creator of the world Who has given His People laws to live by. We have been traveling through golus after golus (galut), battered by the Nations, and now we have Jews and Islamists who want to strip us of our very Jewishness, our Homeland, and our religion. In other words, they are anti Jews, anti G-d, anti religion, and anti life, anti morality.

The very country that was founded on Jewish principles intertwined throughout the early builders' establishment of laws and declarations is now being eaten alive from within, all because of political correctness and insane leftist manifestos.

It's really a shame, but this is how each golus has ended.
Wake up world, it's happening again.
