Enough Only Mourning

On the morning of 18th November 2014, two POS*i from Jerusalem entered a synagogue, in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jerusalem, Israel, and attacked the praying congregants with axes, knives, and a gun. They killed four worshipers, critically wounded a responding Druze Israeli police officer, who later died of his wounds. They also injured seven male worshipers, one of whom never woke up from a coma and died 11 months later. The two POS were then shot dead by the police.

And all Israel mourned.

In January of 2016 a POS stabbed 38 year old Dafna Meir to death in front of some of her children. Dafna, a small woman worked as a nurse at Soroka Medical Center in my beloved Be’er Sheva. She fought with him to keep him from killing her children. Dafna lived in Otniel, a town in Judea. She feared for those who worked on the emergency squads, usually volunteers.

And, she said, she feared for emergency medical crews from Otniel who rush out to help those who are hurt nearby.

“Maybe there are traps” waiting for the rescue teams, she worries. “It’s frightening! And when they go out, in the first minutes before they arrive, maybe they have time to think, ‘Who will I meet this time? Maybe a neighbor, a friend, a wife?’ That’s the horrible reality.”

As it turns out, the terrorist was employed in Otniel, he just walked right in the front gate. People that had been good to the POS and given him a job, let a terrorist in to kill their neighbor.

And all Israel mourned.

On March 8th, 2016 a POS* from Qalqilya in Samaria stabbed 28 year old Taylor Force in my beloved Yafo, along with several others. Taylor died and several others were seriously wounded. The attack was stopped when the POS was shot and killed by police. In 2016 the US put forth the Taylor Force act, and it was signed into law on 23rd March of this year by President Trump. The law is simple, the Taylor Force Act would cut U.S. funding to the Falestinian Authority until it ends its policy which distributes $300 million to terrorists and their families annually.

From Arutz Sheva

A recent report found that more than half of the PA’s yearly budget goes to terrorists, with more than $1 billion having been dedicated for such purposes in the last four years alone.

Despite pressure to end the policy of paying the families of terrorists who murdered Jews, PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas reportedly told the United States last month that he has no intention of doing so.

“I do not intend to cease paying salaries to the families of prisoners and martyrs, even if it means I lose my position. I will continue paying their salaries until my dying day,” he said.

That can’t come soon enough. That is money that is suppose to be helping the “poor suffering falestinians”, it never has.

Many Israelis expressed their sorrow and condolences to the Force family.

And all Israel mourned.

On the 21st of June 2017 a POS broke into a home in N’vei Tzuf and butchered 3 people. The family had gathered to celebrate Shabbat and the birth of a new grandchild. A neighbor in the IDF was home on leave and shot the terrorist, who did not die. He will now be supported by Israeli taxpayers in an Israeli jail where he can gain weight like Shirley Temper and go to school.

For a list of recent murders and how much the murderer gets paid, you can look here

For a good article on the history of the land ownership, since that is the excuse given.

I do think this group, Otzma Yehudit, are on the right track.

“The only way to curb the ongoing terror threat facing Israel is by creating true deterrence that will convince potential terrorists that they have more to lose than to gain. Therefore, it is necessary to implement the death penalty for convicted terrorists, facilitate the expulsion of their families to Gaza and greenlight home demolitions.”

It was a horrific and bloody attack.

And all Israel mourned.

This is only a tiny fraction of the atrocities. Sunday when I was at work I got a message that Ari Fuld had been killed. Ari Fuld was a lion, yes, that was a play on his name, meaning lion.

Ari moved to Israel in the 90s. He served in the IDF in the Golani Infantry Brigade. He had a miraculous story from his time in the service. He spoke out tirelessly for Israel and the truth. He broadcast live on Facebook during the forced evacuation of Netiv Ha’avot, he debated liberals on ILTV, he had a radio show on Israel Newtalk Radio. Podcasts of Bulletproof available here. He had a YouTube channel, he was involved in Standing Together which supported the IDF soldiers, Ari’s latest project was Cool-A-Chayal providing cooling collars for the soldiers who often worked in 100 degree or more heat. He was active on Facebook, Twitter and MeWe. He was put in Facebook jail a few times, which is when he went to MeWe. I know this, because we talked about it.

I first became aware of Ari when I saw him on ILTV and he literally kicked butt and took names. He just smoked the liberals. I found him on Twitter, read through some of his tweets and sent him a message that he had done a fantastic job, and where I had seen him. Probably one of thousands of messages he got like that. I listened to Ari’s views of ILTV and his YouTube Channel, read him on Twitter and sometimes Facebook, but he was starting his own website in English because Facebook was too censoring. Note how he has to write muslims. Facebook has a real aversion to the truth. And Ari told the truth, bluntly without political correctness, straight up. I tried more than once to get him to join Zehut, his views certainly lined up with ours. In fairness of disclosure I am a card carrying member of Zehut. Zehut actually has a workable win-win plan to deal with the Falestinians in Israel. Where are they going to go? I wish it had been implemented 5 years ago. Or in 1948, or 1929, or. Any of those would have been good with me.

But Ari was famous for his man on the street conversations.

You didn’t get one by on Ari, he knew his facts.

On Sunday 16th of September 2018 Ari went to the market to do some shopping for his wife Miriam. The 45 year old Ari and Miriam had 4 children. He was at a shopping center that had a mix of arab and Israeli shoppers. A 17 year old POS from Yatta had been inspired by Abu Mazen. Abu Mazen’s latest lies. From an article I found on Elder of Ziyon, which originated at The Gatestone Institute,

In a speech before the PLO Executive Committee in Ramallah on September 15, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas repeated the old libel that Israel was planning to establish special Jewish prayer zones inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Abbas claimed that Israel was seeking to copy the example of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, where Jews and Muslims pray in different sections.

Abbas did not say what his lie was based on. He also did not provide any evidence of Israel’s ostensible plot against the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He said, nevertheless, that the Palestinians, together with Jordan, were planning to bring this issue before the International Criminal Court and the International Court of Justice.

I don’t know of one Jew that wants to go to the Alka Seltzer mollusk. I however, would like to go pray on Har HaBayet, Temple Mount but I can’t because I’m not muslim. How messed up is that? But the Falestinians are so stupid, they keep falling for the lies over and over and go forth to wreck lives based on Abu Mazen’s (sponsor of the Munich massacre) lies.

So the 17 year old POS set out with a knife. He bravely stood behind Ari in line at the shopping center and then stabbed him in the back. Being a brave arab and all, that brings him great acclaim. Hamass openly praises murder of Ari Fuld Apparently what passes for “bravery” in some arab circles has a very low bar.

Haaretz cited a source close to the Jabarin family as saying that the teen informed his parents that he planned to carry out an attack at the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron. He was not found near the tomb, and then carried out the attack near Efrat.

Other sources say the FA says the parents reported nothing.

Ari drew his pistol, gave chase, jumped over a stone wall and with another armed bystander shot the POS who has been taken to an Israeli hospital to be treated at Israeli taxpayer expense. Ari was taken to a hospital as well, where he was pronounced dead.

Woman Says Ari Fuld Shot Terrorist as He Tried to Stab Her

An employee of a West Bank falafel shop said the Palestinian teen who stabbed Ari Fuld was running at her brandishing his knife when Fuld shot him.

…..

She said that after the teen stabbed Fuld, he began running toward her brandishing the knife. Peretz said she started running away from him shouting terrorist.

…..

I started running down the stairs but [Jabarin] jumped to try to get in front of me. The man that was killed really saved my life, she said of Fuld. He s not just a hero. He gave his life for me.

Captured by surveillance cameras, which did nothing to stop the attack, or apprehend POS. Ari is in the blue shirt. Just by the by? The woman he saved is Falestinian.

This good brave decent man is dead because of lies told to arabs, because of a culture that celebrates the death of such good men. A 17 year old POS educated with UNRWA hate filled text books, a culture of hatred and a diet of lies.

Oslo has claimed another victim.

And all Israel mourns.

I mourn, I respected an admired Ari. He fought and didn’t back down, he knew his stuff and worked tirelessly around the world to help Israel, as well as his community and family.

Oh, you will hear on the media that the IDF will destroy the terrorists home. They won’t. They will destroy the terrorists room in the house, and the FA, Falestinian Authority will build a newer nice room, they will pay the POS money for the rest of his life, may it be short and unpleasant.

You know what? Enough. Enough with the mourning. I.AM.TIRED.OF.IT.

I don’t want a terrorist’s room destroyed. I don’t want foundations left, I want a smoking hole in the ground. I don’t want a POS in jail getting chubby and educated by the Israeli taxpayers. I want the death penalty. The POS was shot by Ari and a armed bystander. There shouldn’t be a moderately wounded terrorist. There should be a dead terrorist. I want Israel to lift ammunition restrictions and limits. The citizens need more ammo to practice. Get shot while committing a terrorist act in Israel? You won’t be getting treated in an Israel hospital from now on. The IDF will load you up in a Jeep and drop you off at a FA hospital or the Gaza border. They can treat your sorry self with their state of the art medical expertise. I want the terrorist’s whole family deported to Jordan, Iran, Syria, Iraq, I don’t care where, one of those should work well, and I want it done by next week. Israel was going to pay Uganda to take the illegal immigrants, fine. Pay Uganda 5 grand to take the whole miserable family. But remove them from Israel, follow the Zehut plan, send the family to Saudi Arabia. The terrorist won’t be going cause he’ll be dead because the death penalty will be reinstated. So, no FA money is going to reach anyone. The US has been cutting funding to the FA, and while many claim the money was going to “help” if you read the link about how much Abu Mazen pays the terrorists, I think it’s obvious that wasn’t happening. Gaza? Come on, that war could be finished in a day, if Israel would fight to win. Enough, just enough, too much. How many thousands of acres burned? How many families live in terror of the arabs getting through the security fence? It’s like some weird kind of Stockholm Syndrome or battered spouse mindset. No matter what they do to you, you accept their accusations against you and try to behave differently so they won’t find more fault with you. That isn’t going to happen. Nothing short of annihilation will suit them. “From the river to the sea”.

“All who are merciful to the cruel in the end become cruel to the merciful” (Qohelet Rabbah on 7:16, cf. Midrash Zuta; Tanḥuma, Mezora 1; Yalkut Shimoni, 1 Samuel, 121).

We’re there, we’ve done passed that marker. In the effort to be politically correct, to win the world and the U.N.’s acceptance and approval, or at least less condemnation, there is cruelty to the merciful. In this case Ari’s family. The terrorists really don’t fear what will happen to them, they’ll be in a comfy jail, eating and learning, they or their families will be raking in big bucks, and the FA and Hamass have no reason to change anything. There needs to be a reason to want to make peace and get along.

What laws have changed since the Har Nof massacre until Ari’s murder? None really. This isn’t working. America put forth the Taylor Force act, can Israel please come up with the Ari Fuld act? I’m tired of seeing “All Israel mourned” in the news.

Ari Fuld’s Parents door

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A friend from Zehut sent this picture tonight of the front door of the Fuld home, thank you Aryeh.

This was Ari’s last video. It was on the Parsha from last week.

It’s short, as is the Parsha. In it he stops teaching at one point because his daughter is getting ready to go out and he stops to give her a blessing. But the topic is handing over the reins of leadership because Moshe couldn’t continue on with them. Poignant or what? So Ari has done amazing prep work, but now others must pick up the torch and carry on. In doing so, the 17 year old waste of oxygen may have killed his body, but Ari’s spirit and work will live on. I’m angry, I’m very angry. Mourning is not changing anything, it’s not stopping anything, they kill on, undeterred. We need to deter them.

Ari Fuld, HY”D, Hashem yinkom domo, השם ינקום דמו May G-d avenge his blood. And I, I mean every single word of that.

I Support Liberal Gun Control

I think I need to reconsider my stance on gun control. I had an interesting conversation with Professor Yitzhak Goldstein this evening. We were lamenting the decreasing number of young people that seem to be involved in Second Amendment rights groups. We then began to discuss possible reasons, which got me to thinking about things I’ve read recently. I think I see a pattern here.

Let’s just briefly touch on a not that long ago incident. A liberal college professor was so unfamiliar with his students and so distrusted them, that when the Kansas legislature began to allow students to have the means to defend themselves as hundreds of other college campuses have, he was so scared he wet his depends and then wrote out his letter of resignation, or it could have been the other way round, who knows. He was soon followed by a female college professor with the same lack of knowledge of her students. So, if you didn’t remember this, there is a backstory.

Around 11th September a group of students at the fine institution of Goldsmith’s University in London decided to showcase their fantastic knowledge of history by replying to a teacher they disagreed with that they would send her to the “gulag”. The teacher I think, understandably took offense. The students then “enlightened” the poor misguided uninformed teacher about gulags.

Gulags, really? Who knew!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The reality?

Historians, however, have concluded that Stalin’s gulags were used to jail everyone from petty criminals to political opponents, including gay men and women.

The report said, “Soviet files show that 1,053,829 people died in the camps between 1934 and 1953, mostly as a result of deliberate starvation.”

The Christian Institute estimated that about 20 million people were incarcerated in the gulags, with “prisoners working up to 14 hours a day in extreme weather. Countless numbers died.”

Hmm, I’m continuing to wonder about the state of higher education. It seems that higher education has become the stronghold of the liberal left. Which makes one part of this article seem strange to me. I agree with most of it though. Who is pushing Jews out of academia in the US?

Dr. Sharona Aharoni-Goldenberg, an expert on the struggle against BDS, says that the Trump administration’s decision, according to which anti-Israel activity on college campuses will be defined as anti-Semitism, is a turning point in the fight against anti-Semitic activity on campuses.

“This is a very important decision. The BDS movement today, which really appears to be activated by an invisible hand – and the feeling is that it is funded by totalitarian elements – works to remove Jews from academia. There is real activity against Israeli lecturers, regardless of their position or opinion, but rather because they are Israelis,” Aharoni-Goldenberg said in an interview with Israel Hayom.

“The activity is not just against Israeli lecturers. If you are a Jewish professor who uploads a post for Israel, you will be fired,” she says. “It’s not a parable, US lecturers who worked against ‘Apartheid Week’ were fired from the institutions at which they taught. The same applies to many Jewish students who simply feel uncomfortable on campus.”

All spot on Dr. Sharona, except this part.

“This anti-Semitism is against Israelis and against Jews, regardless of their position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The boycott is also against people on the left,” she said. “The BDS position is that we have to bring 5 million Palestinians back into the Green Line and destroy Israel.”

No, no Dr. Sharona, the problem is coming from the left. Think about Jeremy Corbyn, the one in the UK that should he become Prime Minister about 40% of Britain’s Jews are planning to flee. You have to recognize your enemy or you will get blindsided every time.

The tolerant left, which tells us to celebrate diversity (as long as it is approved by them). Student allegedly rips MAGA hat off classmate’s head, slaps teacher

Little Miss Chumette Bucket decided that stealing private property from another student, assaulting them and then assaulting a teacher is an acceptable “political statement”.

In cellphone video, a teacher is seen trying to subdue fired-up 17-year-old senior Chumette Bucket after she became enraged at a classmate for wearing the MAGA hat.

She grabbed the hat off his head.

“That’s a racist and hateful symbol,” Bucket said.

……

“Maybe just wake people up in some type of way, because it’s not cool, the environment our classroom is in,” Bucket said.

EXCUSE ME????? The environment the classroom is in?? Who assaulted another student and a teacher because of a innocent hat?? Correct, the profanity spewing tolerant leftist which feels violence towards someone she disagrees with is acceptable.

Then there’s the interview with her Dad.

Doesn’t think she maybe should have handled it that way, but maybe it was a conversation that needed to happen.

YOU. IDIOT.

What conversation took place? What do you think was accomplished? You Mr. Bucket, are a part of this girls problem. And she does have problem, she assaulted a fellow student and a teacher and is standing there grinning like a possum and proud as can be of herself. Either she has no clue how to fit into polite society or she is on some sort of medication, and looking at her eyes, that might be it. Or maybe she is just not right in the head. As her parent? I’d give you an F-

So, I’m saying that educational institutions have a strong leftist bent, very strong, very bent. So bent we have a sociology professor in Las Vegas that carried a concealed pistol that the did not have a permit to carry, concealed into a gun free building on his campus and, shot himself in the arm. But hey, he’s thoughtful. Why?

Inside the bathroom, campus police found a $100 bill taped to a mirror along with a note that said, “For the janitor,” according to Bird’s arrest report. On the floor of the restroom was a black-and-white, .22-caliber pistol and one spent shell casing.

Why? Because he wanted to protest President Trump.

Nope, not making it up. So, I’m going to advise Professor Yitzhak that I think we need to revise our opinion of liberal gun control. I think liberals absolutely need to be thoroughly vetted before they are even allowed in the same room with a gun. And that is why liberals want gun control, they think we are like them, they think we think like they do. They have their isolated ivory tower and are turning out indoctrinated little Chumette Buckets. They teach them how evil the Zionist state is. The one Jewish state in the world, by the way, but don’t dare call them antisemitic. How bad guns are, people can’t be trusted with them, except of course for their paid bodyguards.

But here’s the deal. Ivory towers and schools most often these days, are not reality. Conservatives know this. We know life can be unpredictable, we choose responsibility, we choose preparedness. We know theory quite often, isn’t reality.

“More trained gun license holders, more personal security”. From now, it will not only be hostile or criminal elements who have guns in Israel. Instead, loyal, law-abiding citizens will have them as well. All that is left is for us to internalize that the right to self-defense is a basic human right with which man was created, in the image of G-d. The state can negate the right to carry a gun from those people who endanger the public. But the default mode should be that every citizen has the right to carry a gun, as part of all the human rights that the state should protect. The state does not give us the right to carry guns. We have that already. All that it can do is take that right away.

Cracked Defends Nazi Gun Control

Cracked.com can be outrageous, funny, annoying, and even occasionally informative. This past weekend, they were disgusting genocide-apologists.

Myth: Jews Not Having Guns Led To The Holocaust
Truth: Gun Laws Became More Lenient Leading Up To The Holocaust
All German gun ownership was banned after World War I, but in 1928, Germany passed the Law on Firearms and Ammunition. It loosened gun regulations, but permits were needed, and all new gun purchases had to be registered. However, plenty of Germans, including Jewish citizens, just held onto their guns from World War I, so those went unregistered.
[…]
In 1938, Hitler further deregulated guns with the German Weapons Act, which exempted Nazi Party members from most regulations and lowered the legal age to own a gun from 20 to 18. At this point, they were essentially handing out firearms to whoever looked the least “exotic.”

The 1938 law did strip Jewish citizens of their guns, but that’s an indictment of targeting specific demographics, not gun policy. Even for Jewish citizens who held onto their guns, a couple rifles wouldn’t do much good when an entire army came to their doors. Remember, lax gun laws mean that the people who hate you have easy access to guns too.

The argument of Assarian, et al, is that gun control is fine so long as you’re only targeting despised minorities like Jews for extermination.

And, naturally, they misrepresent the gun laws of Germany of the time. Shall we look at the facts?

Pre-Nazi German conservative leaders passed a victim disarmanent law in 1928. The first fact is that the law was aimed at those upstart socialists and communists who were making trouble in the streets; those socialists specifically including the Nazis.

When the Nazi took power, they used registration lists (from the existing law) to disarm political foes.

On March 18, 1938, the Nazis passed a new law superseding the 1928 law, implementing handgun control. Essentially, only Nazi party members and allies could be lawfully armed. Jews specifically could not own firearms.

On November 10, 1938 — after Kristallnacht — the Nazis went one “better.” Jews were prohibited from possessing any weapon, “even clubs or knives.”

But the people attacking Jews and their property weren’t disarmed, so Cracked is cool with it; it’s not an “indictment” of gun policy in general.

Regardless of your stance on guns, saying that Jews could have stopped the Holocaust if only they’d had more firepower is sleazy victim-blaming…

I don’t claim they could have stopped the Holocaust in its tracks; that, despised Cracked, is a strawman argument. My position is that if more Jews (and gays, Rom, et cetera) hadn’t been forcibly disarmed, they might’ve had a better chance of resisting.

As they did in the Warsaw Ghetto. Armed with a few horded firearms and mostly homemade explosives, the Jews tied up two battalions (and hundreds of other troops) for a month. They lost, but a few escaped.

And I don’t think we should discount the possibility that others lived due to the Ghetto occupants’ sacrifice, because those engaged troops weren’t out rounding up other “undesirables.”

A few hundred Jewish combatants. A few horded and smuggled guns.

And they kept more than two battalions engaged for a month.

We should not discount the possibility that, with more and better arms denied by the Nazis and their allies, the resistance might have been even more effective.

I think I should also address this common leftist/socialist claim:

Truth: Hitler Wasn’t a Socialist; The Nazis Purged Socialists

Yes, they did. And yes, the National Socialists were most definitely socialists.

Leftwingers like to point at the Nazis’ fascism, and pretend, “Fascism is rightwing, therefore they were weren’t socialist because us socialists are leftwing.”

Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical authoritarian ultranationalism,characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and strong regimentation of society and of the economy

The Nazis were definitely fascists.

They were also definitely socialists. Take a look at their National Socialist Program:

“[T]he program championed the right to employment, and called for the institution of profit sharing, confiscation of war profits, prosecution of usurers and profiteers, nationalization of trusts, communalization of department stores, extension of the old-age pension system, creation of a national education program of all classes, prohibition of child labour, and an end to the dominance of investment capital”

Does that sound like something you might hear from self-acknowledged socialist Bernie Sanders, or Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

The Nazis were nationalist socialists (hence the name); fascist socialists. The socialists (and communists) they suppressed were merely competitors for the top slot, to be in charge. The only significant ideological differences between the Nazis and the supposed socialist was nationalism versus — Soviet-style — internationalism: “Our socialist country is better than other countries, and we’ll be in charge” versus “We want one big world socialist order, and we expect to be in charge.”

Of course the self-aggrandizing Nazis suppressed them. They expected to run their worldwide Reich anyway, eventually. They didn’t want any more competition than they already had on their plate.

I wonder if Cracked’s Steve Assarian, Mike Bedard, E. M. Caris, and Michael Battaglino would declare Antifa to be…

Fascist Nazis, not communists and socialists, because they suppress — competing –socialists. Like this:

Antifa assault liberal Bernie Sanders supporter who dared to carry ‘fascist’ US flag at protest

Yes, you disgusting SOBs at Cracked, Nazi gun control victim disarmament did contribute to the Holocaust. And gun control is still evil, even if it only targets people you don’t like.

And it’s hardly a surprise that socialists — whether National Socialists, or Democrat Socialists — like gun control. Gun control is victim disarmament, and it’s a lot easier to manage confiscation of war profits, prosecution of usurers and profiteers, nationalization of trusts, communalization of department stores when the victim is helpless. Just ask any freelance redistributionist.

Hand ‘em out like candy

Is there perhaps a positive change in the wind for beleaguered Israeli citizens? For several months now they have endured rockets being shot at them from the “two state solution” known as Gaza. Gaza was a fairly prosperous area prior to Israel withdrawing from the area and the citizens of Gaza electing hamass. They’ve endure rockets, bombs, firebombs, rocks, snipers, falcons being murdered by having devices attached to them so they could set more of Israel on fire than they could reach with a fire kite. All because they love the land so much they feel compelled to burn it all. There was recently a demonstration in Tel Aviv by the citizens of communities located near Gaza. They feel the government is doing enough/much/anything (circle the correct answer) to protect them.

The protesters shouted “the government must wake up – the south is burning” and “we are not cannon fodder.” They carried signs reading “the south is burning” and “we are tired of burned fields, we are tired of our children crying.”

They have darn good reason to think this way. In Orwellian double speak worthy of Yasser Arafat’s taqiyya of saying he wanted peace then explaining to the ticked off arabs he was just saying that for political reason we have this

After 250 rockets from Gaza hit Israeli locations, one a heavy Grad, Israel’s security cabinet meeting Thursday, Aug. 9, directed the IDF to continue to pursue “powerful action against terrorist forces.” This was tantamount to a decision against a major Israeli military campaign against Hamas at this time, while instead carrying on with tit-for-tat air strikes as before, and leaving the targeted communities to their despair. Some 19 people were injured in the last two days. Hamas is therefore still allowed to call the shots, exactly as it has done in the last four months, while inflicting in Israel diverse brands of terror.

The daily attacks by other arabs continue with stabbings, pro-tip, quit giving the bodies back. They don’t give Israelis back their slain. Arabs hold a big funeral, and a bunch more of them crawl out from under rocks and come into Israel to try to get money and fame by killing Israelis.

Chum Bucket, 31, approached several police officers near the Temple Mount on Friday afternoon. He tried to stab one of them with a knife before being shot dead by the officers who were at the scene.

If he’s going to attack armed police do you think he will hesitate to attack who he thinks is an unarmed vulnerable Israeli?

And he’s not the only one.

Israel Police on Wednesday said that a terror attack in Jerusalem was foiled last week.

In a statement, Israel Police said that officers operating in Jerusalem’s Old CIty noticed a suspicious individual and detained him. Upon searching the suspect, the officers found a knife and tear gas.

The suspect is a 26-year-old Arab resident of Hevron. He was immediately arrested and taken to the police station, where he was interrogated.

The criminals of course are armed, so gun control is working great there.

Police suspect the target of this morning’s shooting at a vehicle in Tel Aviv’s Kikar Hamedina Square was Ben Cohen, a criminal known to police.

Shots were fired from a scooter passing the vehicle where Cohen sat. No one was hurt and massive police forces were called to the scene.

Things are getting so serious the UN, which does not believe in the human right to self-defense, is thinking about getting involved. United Nations: Peacekeeping could protect Gazans from Israel

Are you kidding me?? Forget about Israel and the IDF you ignorant blow-hards. How about doing something about this? NIS 1 million deducted from PA transfers over torture. Need I mention they are torturing their own people. Or this little detail IDF foils Gazan infiltration attempt. Dead Jews do not concern the UN. Remember that, plan accordingly.

So, for the good news.

Public Safety Minister Gilead Erdan eased gun restrictions since armed civilians on the scene often help the police contain terrorist attacks and reduce casualties – especially in “lone wolf” incidents.”

But wait, what if your government doesn’t think your life is worth what you and your family think you life is worth. What if for example you were Elor Azariya? This case has been well covered on TZP if you have any questions just search using the little search tool on the right.

Well, we don’t have to “what if”. He applied, he was denied and the injustice continues. Apparently a James Comey (Israel version) works in the Police Department. The media knew Elor had been denied before he did. The man applied because his life was in danger, and it was in danger originally because of the liberal left being in full control of the legal process.

Terrorists do not hesitate to attack armed soldiers, police or guards. They most certainly will not hesitate to attack presumably disarmed Israeli citizens.

Palestinian youth on a stabbing rampage murders an Israeli man, injures two

A 17-year old terrorist climbed the security fence into the Adam community north of Jerusalem Thursday night, July 26, and slashed one victim after another.  Yotam Ovadia, an Israeli man of 31, whom he repeatedly stabbed, died soon after from multiple wounds, a second man, aged 58, was badly hurt and a third though injured managed to pull his gun and shoot the killer dead. The terrorist came from the nearby Palestinian village of Kobar. He must have studied the electronic fence in advance, because he was able to climb over without triggering the sensors for an alarm.

And in the end, it was a good guy with a gun that stopped the carnage. The security fence didn’t stop them, guards didn’t stop them, patrols didn’t stop them. A good guy with a gun stopped him.

Don’t be stingy Erdan, hand those gun permits out like candy.

We Otto Know

This is another one of those columns where I tie shoestrings. Two things going on at the same time that are related, at least in my mind. The things are a TV program and a law.

First up, the TV show was called nazi Secret Files and the episode involved Otto Skorzeny. Skorzeny was hitler’s favorite commando. He led the rescue of mussolini, bravely kidnapped a child, and was a good nazi, he hated Jews. None of this is news, what the show focused on was his activities after the war.

At the beginning of the 20th century 1 million Jews lived peacefully in North Africa and the Middle East. They were mainly the Sephardic Jews. After Germany’s defeat in WWI and hitler’s rise to power Jews began to flee Europistan for Palestine. In the 1930s 250,000 European Jews fled Europe for Palestine. At that time Germany let them go, they wanted them to leave. In 1917 the British Empire had issued the Balfour Declaration, they saw it as restoring the land back to the Jews.

His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.

At that time the land was under the control of the local Falest Pales Ara Turks. Yup, no one local controlled the land, Turkey did.

So the local arabs began to express their displeasure, they didn’t don the powerful pink knitted hat, nope, they went the antifa terrorist route and began to attack and sabotage. Stirring the pot was Haj Amin al-Husseini. It seems the British just couldn’t keep from shooting themselves and the Jews in the feet and any other handy place, they appointed al-Husseini as Grand Mufti after he promised he’d be good and quit inciting bloody attacks and riots on the Jews like he had in 1920 and 1921. Of course he lied and there were horrid riots in 1929 and 1936. Since al- Husseini hated the British as well as Jews, they really, really should have known better. Alas. He looked pretty much like your typical arab, blue eyed, fair complexion and it was said he could be charismatic and charming. Obviously, the Brits didn’t catch on. What al- Husseini did was change the focus of the conflict in the middle east from political to religious. From 1936-1939 he convinced 5,000 arabs that it would be a great idea to get themselves killed trying to prevent the Jews from settling. Now this is important, if you follow events in Israel, it will sound familiar, very familiar. He convinced local gullible arabs that the Jews were trying to destroy islam. Today the imams, hamass and abu mazen says that they Jews are going to destroy the Alka-Seltzer Mollusk, but it’s the same tired approach, and they’ve yet to catch on. It may surprise you to know, that back then the majority of the arabs wanted to make peace with Israel. They viewed al-Husseini as radical and didn’t want that path. They wanted to live in peace with the new Jews like they had the Jews that already lived there and just get on with their lives. Interesting, yes?

So fair haired, blue-eyed, Jew hating al-Husseini, who would love a guy like that? Yep, on November 28th of 1941 he goes to meet hitler in Germany. However, hitler is less than besotted and turns him over to himmler since he was never really sure about al-Husseini’s genetic make up. Of course a life long friendship begins between himmler and al-Husseini, and they both loved islam. Seriously, they saw Christianity and Judaism as the religion of slaves and islam as the religion of warriors. Hey dipwads, you never heard of King David? Judah Macabee? But I digress, so the new BFFs form islamic nazi SS units in Bosnia with 26,000 men. Indeed one of the largest. al-Husseini becomes a General, gets money and houses and with the similarities between nazism and islam they all get on peachy. Joseph Gerbils even gets in on the act because he sees the muslims as being important to use against Britain. The mufti tours the concentration camps and decides to bring them to Israel. He wants the mobile gas chambers like the kind used by Walter Rauff who followed Rommel around. He was hoping he could get Eichmann to help him set up the camps.

Does any of this give you the idea that there was far more to al-Husseini’s hatred that just some Jews moving to Israel?

This hatred is what led to the assassination of King Abdullah I of Jordan (established in 1948). Not all the arabs wanted war with Israel, King Abdullah wanted to make peace, and was killed for it.

Back to Skorzeny, before the end of the war, Skorzeny had come up with a plan that could extend the action against the allies for up to another year possibly. He began the group known as the werwolves. They were made up of mostly hitler youth because they were available, but like many modern school children, also easy to indoctrinate. Their goal was to work as a partisan unit, disrupt, destroy and kill. I don’t know how effective they really were at that as much as Joseph Gerbils used them to great effect by propaganda broadcasts urging German civilians to join in. The army reacted by warning service men and putting in place curfews on the German population.

“Every friendly German civilian is a disguised soldier of hate. Armed with the inner conviction that the Germans are still superior … [they believe] that one day it will be their destiny to destroy you. Their hatred and their anger … are deeply buried in their blood. A smile is their weapon by which to disarm you … In heart, body and spirit every German is Hitler.”

Eventually Skorzeny sees the writing on the wall and turns himself in to the Americans. In July of 1948 he is sprung from custody by some of his werwolves disguised as American soldiers. He has helped many of the nazi high officials flee via the Ratlines and now he is ready to move, and so he does.

So there is some background.

It’s now 1953 and Skorzeny shows up in Egypt to reunite with the arab fuhrer as al-Husseini was called. So what’s an out of work nazi to do? He begins setting up arab werwolves. He teaches terrorism to the arabs. One would have thought they already knew enough about that. He meets a cousin of al-Husseini named yasser arafat who went on to form the ancient people known as falestinians in 1964. I believe I read that he stated in his biography he came up with the term “Palestinians” as applying to arabs as a propaganda type tool. Knowing he and Skorzeny were BFFs for the rest of their lives I just wonder where he could have gotten such a propaganda idea. After the War for Independence in 1948 the arabs had conducted raids on Israeli farms, stole livestock and farm equipment, mostly. After 1956 Gamal Abdel Nasser came to power and ousted the British from Egypt. Gamal was a hitler fan-boy. So with Skozeny training the arab werwolves the raids changed, now they became vicious towards the Jews. The nazis had their foothold. They viewed civilian trains, buses, markets as fair game. He trained the fedayeen to kill Jews in Gaza, Judea and Shomron. 260 Israelis were killed in 1955 alone. It might interest you to know that Skorzeny was also involved in training young neo-nazis in the United States. By 1960 Nasser had set Egypt up as a nazi state in the mid-east. He had his opposition killed and 75,000 Egyptian Jews had either fled, been expelled or killed. Now that everything is set up, Skorzeny moves to Spain and forms a terrorist for hire group called “The Paladin Group”. His clients included Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, both admirers of the nazis.

In the 1960s and the 1970s the terror really kicked up in the mid-east with the proliferation of non state terror organizations. The fedayeen, hamass, hezbollah, jemaah islamiyah, al-qaeda all of these originated from Skorzeny’s werwolves and his training back in Egypt in the 50s. Mein Kampf is still a best seller in the arabic world, and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion are thought to be true as well.

So now you know how some of the terrorism and propaganda in the mid-east had nazi origins. Now for part 2, it’s shorter.

Perhaps you’ve heard about the new Nation state law recently passed by Israel. Much of the world has weighed in on it. Racist, establishing apartheid, discrimination, democracy is dead. The arabs are all in a tizzy, the left wing Jews are having a hissy, actually left wing everything pretty much always has a hissy when Israelis do anything other than die quietly. But just in the interest of letting you form your own opinion, here is the new Israel Nation State Law, in it’s entirety.

1. The State of Israel

a) Israel is the historical homeland of the Jewish people in which the state of Israel was established.

b) The state of Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people, in which it actualizes its natural, religious, and historical right for self-determination.

c) The actualization of the right of national self-determination in the state of Israel is unique to the Jewish people.

2. National symbols of the State of Israel

a) The name of the state is Israel.

b) The flag of the state is white, two blue stripes near the edges, and a blue Star of David in the center.

c) The symbol of the state is the Menorah with seven branches, olive leaves on each side, and the word Israel at the bottom.

d) The national anthem of the state is “Hatikvah”

e) [Further] details concerning the issue of state symbols will be determined by law.

3. [The] unified and complete [city of] Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

4. The Language of the State of Israel

a) Hebrew is the language of the state.

b) The Arabic language has a special status in the state; the regulation of the Arab language in state institutions or when facing them will be regulated by law.

c) This clause does not change the status given to the Arabic language before the basic law was created.

5. The state will be open to Jewish immigration and to the gathering of the exiled.

6. The Diaspora

a) The state will labor to ensure the safety of sons of the Jewish people and its citizens who are in trouble and captivity due to their Jewishness or their citizenship.

b) The state will act to preserve the cultural, historical and religious legacy of the Jewish people among the Jewish diaspora.

7. The state views Jewish settlement as a national value and will labor to encourage and promote its establishment and development.

8. The Hebrew calendar is the official calendar of the state and alongside it the secular calendar will serve as an official calendar. The usage of the Hebrew calendar and of the secular calendar will be determined by law.

9. National Holidays

a) Independence Day is the official holiday of the state.

b) The Memorial Day for those who fell in the wars of Israel and the Memorial Day for the Holocaust and heroism are official memorial days of the state.

10. Saturday and the Jewish Holidays are the official days of rest in the state. Those who are not Jewish have the right to honor their days of rest and their holidays. Details concerning these matters will be determined by law.

11. This Basic Law may not be altered except by a Basic Law that gained the approval of the majority of the Knesset members.

And that’s it. All of it. For some good commentary check out IsraellyCool. He has a professor of law analyze it.

And yes, Skorzeny did help the Mossad find information on the rockets being built in Egypt by German scientists. Some wondered what his motivation was. They wondered if on some level he wanted to atone.

“How can I trust you?” Skorzeny asked. “How can I be sure that you won’t go after me later?” He feared that Israeli avengers would find him as they found Eichmann, and his fate would be the same.

Rafi Eitan found the solution right away. “We are authorized to offer you freedom from fear,” he said. He took a sheet of paper and wrote Skorzeny a letter, in the name of the State of Israel, which guaranteed him “freedom from fear” and assured him that he would not be subject to any kind of persecution or violence.

Skorzeny perused the document, then fell silent. He got up and paced back and forth, immersed in thought.

He finally turned to the Israelis. “I agree,” he said.

Nope, self-serving till the end. He may be gone, his filthy legacy lives on.

That’s it, and now you know where the genesis of much of that hatred and misinformation is coming from. The roots of the lies and tactics go back to nazi Germany. And somewhere hitler, Skorzeny and al-Husseini are smiling as the world attempts to deny the Jewish state the right to be, a Jewish State and screams “disproportionate force” as Jews die there still fighting for their right to be a Jewish State.

I didn’t want to get involved

One of the daily devotional books I read had the topic of “When Good Men Do Nothing”, it’s short.

Often injustice lies in what you aren’t doing, not only in what you are doing.”

MARCUS AURELIUS, MEDITATIONS, 9.5

History abounds with evidence that humanity is capable of doing evil, not only actively but passively. In some of our most shameful moments—from slavery to the Holocaust to segregation to the murder of Kitty Genovese—guilt wasn’t limited to perpetrators but to ordinary citizens who, for a multitude of reasons, declined to get involved. It’s that old line: all evil needs to prevail is for good men to do nothing.

It’s not enough to just not do evil. You must also be a force for good in the world, as best you can.

The Kitty Genovese murder was horrific. The 28 year old had finished her shift at work as a bar manager and drove home in her red Fiat. She parked her car at the train station across from her Kew Gardens apartment building and started walking home. A 29 year old bucket of chum had followed her home. He was married with kids, had a job and had decided that day that he wanted to kill a woman because he preferred killing women because they were easier and didn’t fight back. He had been driving around about an hour looking for a victim. He began to chase her as she was walking across the street. He initially stabbed her twice but when a couple of people opened their windows in response to her screams and yelled at him he took off. Kitty staggered down the street trying to make it to her apartment. Some of the witnesses said they called the police and said a woman got beat up, but she was up and walking. It doesn’t matter, the police didn’t come. When said bucket of chum had sat in his car about ten minutes and didn’t hear police sirens he got out and went looking for her. He finally found her in the vestibule of her apartment building. He continued to stab her, stole her money and raped her.

Kitty was unable to continue to scream much as his first stab of the second attack was to her throat so she couldn’t scream. But she did make noise. About the only hero in the story is 4’11” Sophie Farrar who heard the commotion, yelled at someone to call the police and flew down the stairs to confront whatever. She held and comforted the dying Kitty. Total time of attacks was about half an hour.

Not much initially happened after the murder until a NY Slimes story came out and claimed 38 people had witnessed the murder and done nothing. And, it being the NY Slimes #FakeNews, the story was later de-bunked. But in typical NY Slimes #FakeNews fashion, they wanted to make news with a point about urban indifference. So, facts? Who needs ‘em. There were actually two men, who most likely saw it happening.

Joseph Fink was an assistant superintendent at the building across the street from Genovese’s. Stationed in the building’s lobby, he had a clear view of the first stabbing, and later told prosecutors that he “thought about going downstairs to get my baseball bat,” but took a nap instead. When asked by the prosecutor why he didn’t help, he shrugged. Another prosecutor later said, “It made me sick to my stomach dealing with this man.”

And the other? Karl Ross, a dog groomer and friend of Kitty’s.

As was his habit, Ross had been drinking the night of the murder. At 3:30 a.m., he heard a noise outside his window that sounded like a woman screaming.

“Skittish by nature, the groggy Ross wasn’t eager to find out what was happening,” Cook writes. “He stayed where he was. He waited, hoping the noises would stop. Soon they died down. He relaxed.”

But a few minutes later, a similar noise arose, this one closer, possibly “a scuffling” or “a muffled cry.”

“Ross stood by his door but didn’t open it,” Cook writes. “He paced behind it, wondering what he should do. At last his curiosity got the best of him. He opened the door a crack.”

What he saw was Genovese, his friend, “lying flat on her back . . . trying to speak” as Moseley continued stabbing her. Suddenly, Moseley stopped — and looked directly at Ross, who retreated into his apartment as quickly as possible.

Instead of calling the police, Ross wasted time calling other neighbors for advice, and they, for reasons unclear, then called others. It was a fatal game of telephone that wasted precious minutes, until Farrar finally yelled at Ross to call the police while she rushed to comfort the victim. Ross called at 3:55, too late to save Genovese’s life.

When the police questioned him about why he didn’t help, Ross inadvertently invented a phrase that would come to symbolize civic apathy, telling them, “I didn’t want to get involved.”

How…special.

But it did prompt some interesting psychology studies. The Bystander, or Kitty Genovese Effect.

Several psychologists were asked by the the Slimes writer how could someone attempt to kill another person in front of a large group of witnesses like that, and why would none of them get involved or attempt to help? None could answer. Albert Seedman, who was chief of detectives at the time got an answer for that from the psychopath.

‘I knew they wouldn’t do anything, people never do’

Seedman is a pretty interesting guy, at the time, he was the only Jewish officer ever to rise to that rank, and solved some pretty amazing crimes.

But it sounds like the more witnesses, the less likely you are to receive help. Then you add in groups that hate you for what you are. That has been made easy for them by the way they were raised, or their own beliefs. It seems another component is what others around them are doing.

What I’m thinking of now is a article I saw earlier about Austrian State May Require Jews to Register to Buy Kosher Meat I know, it’s Haaretz #FakeNews which is about as reliable as the NY Slimes #FakeNews. And it didn’t fly Austria rejects registering Jews for kosher meat the AFP of course said it was a “far right” party that wanted to implement it. AFP seems to be unaware that on the political spectrum “far right” is anarchy. Communists, socialists, nazis, demoncrats, progressives are are just different flavors of the same big government control poison. Anarchy is the opposite. But, it’s the AFP, so. It was claimed there was a need to do this from a animal welfare aspect. Interesting, because in one of Rabbi Tovia’s lectures he talked about having to work in a slaughter house. Yes, it was awful but what he learned was that killing the animal in a Kosher way, was less traumatic and painful for them then the way all the other animals were slaughtered.

But back to witnesses and those raised to hate certain groups of people, Turkish man beats Jews in front of kosher shop in Vienna.

I guess one way or another, there are ways of making people feel unwelcome, the approach they take depends on the direction politically they want to come at it.

It makes me think of all those “helpful” bits of advice we are given like don’t be in a bad neighborhood. Kew Gardens in the 60s was a safe, peaceful neighborhood. Don’t go places alone, Kitty was in a very populated area. She died while her friend watched her being stabbed to death. The police are only moments away. Yeahhh, well. And then there are those that want us to disarm while they hire armed bodyguards. No, just say no. Now there’s a platitude I could get behind.

But “I didn’t want to get involved” or “All it takes for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing”. The choice is always ours, but last saying “Prior and proper planning prevents p*** poor performance”. Yep, I’ll take that one, because I don’t want to be Kitty, and I choose to be a force for good in the world. Today bystanders not only don’t want to get involved, they are as likely to stand there and film it or stream it live. Evil may be succeeding, but the choice is still ours.

Tisha B’Av. From Within

Tisha B’Av is the saddest day of the Jewish year. The Jewish calender, unlike the Gregorian one doesn’t change. The date an event falls on the Jewish calender will be the same every year, the date it falls on the Gregorian will change. Tisha B’Av this year is Saturday the 21st. But since only Yom Kippur will alter the joy of Shabbat, it will be observed on Sunday the 22nd. How Tisha B’Av is observed and how it is observed when it falls on Shabbat.

Why is it the saddest day of the year? Plenty, and I mean plenty of reasons. Chabad has a list of Tisha B’Av history. In addition to what is listed, Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven mentioned this week in Temple Talk radio it is also the date the gas chambers started up at Treblinka.

Jews have paid a fearsome price, horrific, down through the ages for their faith and for their race. I realize that last one is citing a AP source, so not necessarily reliable. There has been a price indeed for the people that brought knowledge of G-d into the world. The world resisted from the beginning. From Parshat Balak when the King of Moab hires Balaam to curse the Jews, and he can’t, he only blesses them. He then advises the King of Moab, find something to separate them from their G-d, how you ask?

As the Torah tells it (see Numbers 25; Rashi ibid.; Talmud, Sanhedrin 81b–82b and 106a), the wicked prophet Balaam, having failed to undermine the people of Israel’s special relationship with G‑d by harping on their past sins, had an idea. “Their G‑d abhors promiscuity,” he said to Balak, the Moabite king who had hired him to place a curse on Israel. Corrupt them with the daughters of your realm, and you will provoke His wrath upon them.

And as the Jews assimilated the Midianite women, sure enough, they began to worship Baal Peor. This and more is in the Parshat after Balak, Parshat Pinchas. Pinchas skewered a couple of them, very publicly. And,,,,,,it brought peace and a cessation of the plague.

Pinchas’s deed evokes many associations—courage, decisiveness and religious passion are several that come to mind—but peace hardly seems one of them. Pinchas, after all, killed two people. True, what he did was condoned by Torah law, and his doing so saved many lives; still, one does not usually think of homicide as a peaceful act.

During the teaching that week Rabbi said that while many think that open borders, anyone can live anywhere, we’re all just one big family of human beings is a very liberal compassionate attitude, it is not. Because innocent people will pay the price for this, it is the innocent that are harmed. The opposite is true, that borders and sound policy are the more compassionate.

We’ll come back for Matot-Massei more. But I’ll just touch on this point. The Moabites feared the Jews, they saw the big victories and the Jews were going to settle near them. The Midianites just flat hated them. They weren’t going to settle near the Midianites, they just had a baseless hatred of the Jews. i

There are histories, cases, incidents and evidence that nations and people have wanted to destroy the Jews and separate them from G-d since G-d had a word with Avraham. There is a clear difference in what the message is coming from Torah and the liberal segment of Judaism. Rabbi Tovia Singer talks in one of his lectures about how they train secret service agents to know real from phony currency. He thought they examined tons of the fake stuff so they could spot it. No, his friend who trained the agents told him. They have them examine the real thing, to know how it feels, what it looks like, all it’s special characteristics. Then when you know the real thing, you can much more easily spot a fake. He talks about how the Jews that are easily pulled away from Judaism don’t have a firm foundation, they don’t know their roots. He urges parents and grandparents to make sure that their children and grandchildren have a good Jewish education so they are harder to pull away from the faith. And this is not a new lecture series I’m listening to. From references made in the lecture on the Slander of Israel and it’s trigger for antisemitism he mentions Senator HilLIARy Clintoon, when she called for a disasterous two state solution. She was in office from 2001-2009, so somewhere in there. He also cites the death of Chezi Goldberg, 2004 Nava Applebaum, September 9th 2003 and the butchering alive of two IDF reservists by Arafat’s Police the Wiki article doesn’t tell you what happened to those two young men, Rabbi Tovia in the linked audio, does. Why would I tell you to listen to something so appallingly gruesome? Because when you read this next part I want you to keep it in mind. Here is a list of terror attacks from 1993-1999, just a few years worth and before the intifadas.

Tisha B’Av, from within. The attempt to destroy Jews and Judaism coming from within. Just like the 300 Spartans and King Leonidas, molṑn labé dude were betrayed by a bucket of chum. Aforementioned bucket of chum wanted favors and acclaim. He sought personal recognition above the good of his people, and those he should have given his loyalty towards.

So why am I off on this tear? Well, as Bear wrote in Tikkun Olam, we received a letter citing this column, Liberal Jews are destroying their own religion. Here is the book referenced in the column.

So let’s take a look at that, shall we? Let’s start with Ze’ev Jabotinsky and his timeless words and wisdom.

“The Ethics of The Iron Wall,” a timeless document which simply and rightfully argues that morality comes before everything else – and along with that the simple concept that Zionism is “moral and just.”

…..

“It is incredible what political simpletons Jews are. They shut their eyes to one of the most elementary rules of life, that you must not “meet halfway” those who do not want to meet you.”

…..

Israel is right to have demands for safety and survival above all else. Jabotinsky’s timeless essay continues, “…there is no morality, no ethics that concedes the right of a glutton to gorge, while more tempered people die of starvation.”

He continues, “And the Talmud quotes a very instructive legal action – which has a direct bearing on this matter. Two people walking along the road find a piece of cloth. One of them says: ‘I found it. It is mine:’ But the other says: ‘No: that is not true: I found the cloth, and it is mine:’ The judge to whom they appeal cuts the cloth in two, and each of these obstinate folk gets half. But there is another version of this action. It is only one of the two claimants who is obstinate: the other, on the contrary, has determined to make the world wonder at this magnanimity. So he says: ‘We both found the cloth, and therefore I ask only a half of it, because the second belongs to B But B. insists that he found it, and that he alone is entitled to it. “

“In this case, the Talmud recommends a wise Judgment, that is, how very disappointing to our magnanimous gentleman. The judge says: ‘There is agreement about one half of the cloth. A. admits that it belongs to B. So it is only the second half that is in dispute. We shall, therefore divide this into two halves: And the obstinate claimant gets three-quarters of the cloth, while the ‘gentleman’ has only one quarter, and serve him right. It is a very fine thing to be a gentleman, but it is no reason for being an idiot. Our ancestors knew that. But we have forgotten it. We should bear it in mind. Particularly, since we are very badly situated in this matter of concessions.”

Clearly, there are people not keeping this in mind. First up the Israel (Jewish state) hating Bernie Sanders. I have to admit, I feel humor when I see a brand new expensive car with “Feel the Bern” bumper stickers on it as I drive past in my 1997 model car. Redistribute the cars. Bernie much beloved by the liberal left, doesn’t seem to have moral roots, meaning something anchoring to convictions or positions. For example

“Open borders? No, that’s a Koch brothers proposal,” Bernie Sanders snapped. “You’re doing away with the concept of a nation state, and I don’t think there’s any country in the world that believes in that.”

“What right-wing people in this country would love is an open-border policy,” he continued. “You know what youth unemployment is in the United States of America today? If you’re a white high school graduate, it’s 33 percent, Hispanic 36 percent, African American 51 percent. You think we should open the borders and bring in a lot of low-wage workers, or do you think maybe we should try to get jobs for those kids?”

That was three years ago.

Bernie’s final surrender came after dodging a question on CNN about abolishing ICE. After the backlash, he went even further, issuing a statement urging that we “abolish the cruel, dysfunctional immigration system we have today”. Open borders had gone from a right-wing position to a Bernie position.

Or how about his position on Guns?

Bernie 2.0, the formerly poor politician who has earned over $1 million for two years running, is a very different political animal than the crusty old socialist that Obama’s old lefty allies dug up in Vermont.

The left’s favorite Senator owes his seat to the NRA. He voted against the Brady Bill and was listed as the only non-Republican among the 25 top recipients of money from gun-rights groups. Hillary Clinton quickly zeroed in on gun control as Bernie’s weakness. And his response to her was praised by the NRA. And then, as usual, the flip-following followed the leftist backlash in the media and on social media.

After telling the New York Daily News that firearms manufacturers shouldn’t face lawsuits from victims of crimes committed with firearms, he flipped his answer completely around at the debate. It only took a few weeks for Bernie to go from, “No, I don’t” to “They have a right to sue, and I support them.”

These days Bernie is hanging out with David Hogg and blaming a “three letter word” for gun violence.

“It’s the NRA,” Sanders recently sneered. “And it’s Trump and the Republicans who don’t have the guts to stand up to these people and that’s pretty pathetic.”

Bernie is the the type of Jew that Rabbi Tovia talks about. They don’t adhere, or follow Judaism and they hate Israel, so the media loves to quote them, or use them as sources for their anti-Israel diatribes. That way they can’t be accused of antisemitism. The open borders thing? Go back up and see what Rabbi said in the teaching of Pinchas. A bit different from Bernie.

And a group of 50 young gullible political pawns, naw, let’s just say what it is, liberal Jews craving attention with no love of Judaism, Torah or Israel, and yes that’s my opinion but not mine alone,

This gathering was less about a genuine empathy for dead Palestinians. It was more an exhibition of Jew hatred for the Jewish state.

decided to daven Kaddish ….for the hamass terrorists trying to kill Jews from Gaza. In Parliament square in Londonistan. That apparently doesn’t run afoul of Londonistan’s mulim mayor Kahn (#FreeTommyRobinsonNow). Hamass has admitted that 50 or so of the 65 killed in the day of question were their people. People who had stated:

Hamas Gaza chief, Yahiya Sinwar, incited his people by telling them, “We will tear down their borders and then tear out their hearts from their bodies.”

Nice, in addition to that, the baby they named was not killed by tear gas (WHO takes a baby to a riot) but by a congenital heart defect. A cousin of the family told the IDF the family was paid two grand by hamass to claim Israel killed the baby. The gullible sops fell for it, naw, they didn’t care for the facts or truth, they cared for the camera and “social justice”. What crap. What is “just” about a people flat out telling you they want to kill you and you side with them?

What sanctimonious hogwash! What they were doing was feeling sad for Palestinian who set out to murder Jews.

As for their “morality,’ Seth Frantzman asked in his Jerusalem Post article, “had these fifty Jews ever held a Kaddish for the dead of the Rwandan genocide or the thousands of Yazidis machine-gunned to death by ISIS, or for the hundreds of Israelis killed during the Second Intifada” or since by Palestinians? Or the Jewish victims of antisemitism? Highly unlikely.

Did they spare any of those prayers for the Israelis murdered by hamass? For the IDF attacked by pieceful Falestinians and hamass? Nope. There was backlash. The chief organizing twit-ette, she being a she, as opposed to the male, twit, was removed from her position as a leader on the Reform youth movement’s Israel Tour this summer. Apparently this was too much for Reform Judaism. So her sister posted an appeal on facebook asking all her Jewish friends to contact leadership and express their disappointment. Reading the comments is priceless, enjoyable and entertaining. All the comments I saw run to the line of thinking you daft bint, do you not understand these people want to kill Jews? Kaddish is a Jewish prayer said for Jews, not hamass. Actions have consequences, this sort:

Perhaps u can point out to us an instance when she has said Kaddish for any of the Jewish men women or children butchered by Hamas terrorists?

Please don’t ignore the truth there was only one reason for her being removed from her post and that was because she was unfit to lead as she proved by her naive and repulsive actions.

These stunts are more than just childish. They provide succour to our enemies. It has been retweeted many times by the likes of Electronic Intifada , Ben White, BDS / PSC etc .These individuals and orgs would not dream to post anything remotely disadvantageous to their cause and so they quote you. I have studied their motivation and strategy. A key component is to seed fund dissent within the Diaspora in order to undermine the global Diaspora support for Israel . It’s one more long term element within the bds armoury to dismantle the Jewish state .

And honestly, Israel doesn’t need another Israel hating twit-ette involved with a tour.

Anti-Israel Birthright Brats Beg For Money After Getting Kicked off Program

Oh, but it’s not what you’re thinking, they walked off the tour. And it’s not the first time that the left wing activists from the Israel hating IfNotNow have accepted free trips to Israel only to use them to push their “liberal” ill-liberal narrative. Even Haaratz #FakeNews was miffed. They wanted to go visit an Arab family facing eviction. And so Birthright kicked them off the tour after they walked off. They did what any good liberal who pitched a hissy fit would do when confronted with consequences, they opened a Go Fund Me and begged money. And, they got it.

An, as in one, arab family facing eviction. Wow. They didn’t ask to visit Amona, or Netiv HaAvot. Nor did the ask to help repair some of the thousands of acres of land burned by their Gazan heroes. Nor did they offer to try to stop them from killing innocent animals in an attempt to destroy even more Israeli land and kill more Israelis and animals. Nope, none of that interested them. Being political pawns for hamass, that’s their jam. I think Birthright should have stuck them in a helmet and sent them to the border so they can get a real idea, a Falcon’s eye view of what it’s like to be an Israeli. Let them go spend some time in one of the villages close to the border, talk to the residents there. Let them go spend a few days in Sderot, and find out how long 15 seconds is. I’m actually kind of shocked Birthright hasn’t offered to hire me.

And then there was the IDF hating leftist Hannah Berg who attempted to deceive the good people of Yitzhar into thinking she was sane and giving her a tour. They gave her Tzvi Sukkot, Otzmah Yehudit, Jewish Power Director as a “tour” guide. It’s a short story, but I like it a lot and you might as well.

But the always brilliant Tsvi Sadan points out, it’s like the Head of the IDF hates them as well. Well, he didn’t put it like that, exactly.

Eizenkot: I don’t think that shooting at children and youth who sometimes fly balloons and kites [that set fires in Israel’s south] is the right thing to do.

Yeahhhh, I think I know how Elor Azariya wound up in jail. Really, go read it.

I think Howard Sachs sums it up very nicely in Leftism and liberalism: Private property

What a tragedy for America. Millions of intelligent but highly unwise Jews are replacing liberal Judaism with illiberal Leftism.

Hundreds of thousands of our young across America, now, almost fully indoctrinated into this terrible ideology, demand all this free stuff like free college, healthcare, maternity leave, daycare, retirement care, eldercare – wretched socialism.

This Leftist value system , this new religion, has taken over our media, universities, the Democratic party, Hollywood, and much of our non-orthodox Jewish and Christian institutions. And with the dogma of this religion, these men and women essentially yearn to return to our oppressive past, to Egypt, to the false comforts, idols, and destructiveness of slavery and tyranny.

The whole article is worth reading, really.

I said we would come back to Parshat Matot-Massei,

But of course, they were wrong. If one is to throw caution to the wind and risk everything, it should be in the opposite direction, to combat evil, as Pinchas graphically demonstrated. Although we should not shun the challenge of engaging the materiality of this world directly, we must be duly aware of its potential to divert us and corrupt our intentions. Hence the pertinence of the laws of vows and oaths: through these laws a person can set up boundaries for himself where he feels they are needed, as we will explain further on.

But like training the secret service agents by teaching them the nuances and subtleties of real currency to be able to tell fraud, these new brave daring Jews, foolishly fooled political pawns and spoiled brats going against the hopelessly outdated old ways of thinking have no idea of real justice, of real kindness or compassion. They want their idea of social justice forced upon you, and they want the government to do it.

But Tisha B’Av, we grieve the loss of the Beit Hamikdash, both of them. The attempt to destroy the heart and soul of Judaism, the place where G-d chose to rest his presence and would meet with the people. The world has been trying to destroy it for millennia, and now there are those who choose to try to destroy it from within. Yet another reason to mourn.

But Tisha B’Av isn’t just about mourning what’s been lost, it is suppose to put us in a frame of mind, in a place to want to rectify, to rebuild. And so I will leave you with a little video playlist, each of the 8 videos is only a couple minutes long.

But this is my favorite. It’s not the most recent one though.

I watch it and the tears run, but they are tears of hope. May your Tisha B’Av be meaningful.

Poland

July 4th, American Independence day when we think about the resolve of American patriots, give thanks for their foresight and courage. We review what they went through and the tools that made victories possible.

Washington & Guns, lots of guns. Good plan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And both of those things, Washington and guns were lacking in Poland on July 4th 1946. Poland has been in the news a lot as of late. For those that don’t know it, July 4th was the anniversary of the 72nd anniversary of the Kielce pogrom. No, no, the Kielce pogrom occurred after WWII had ended. Kielce

Kielce was occupied on 4 September 1939 by the German army. Approximately 24,000 Jews lived in the town, a third of all its inhabitants.

…..

On 31 March 1941 the Kielce Ghetto was established. Jews from the surrounding villages were forced to move into the ghetto.

The ghetto liquidation took place from 20 – 24 August 1942

…..

In March 1943, during a selection in the Kielce camp, the SS killed all Jewish doctors and their families, and in May 1943 a group of children. After the May selection the Germans established several work camps.

After the war around 150 Jews left their hidings and returned to Kielce. They found a place in their former parish hall, waiting for a possibility to emigrate to Palestine.

…..

In June 1946 they were accused of having committed a ritual murder on a missing Polish boy. On 1 July 1946 a furious crowd gathered round the building and on 4 July 1946 they killed 42 Jews. (At least, most likely more. ~S)

Until today historians discuss who provoked this anti-Jewish riot. Many inhabitants participated in the pogrom and around 100 people were arrested by the communist police; among them people who did not participate in the crime but being known as anti-communists.

Still today some people suspect that the pogrom was provoked by communists for eliminating opponents of the new regime in Poland.

Because Communism is a G-dless “religion” for one thing. Because they were coming back to reclaim their property for another.

If only they had some warning that their “neighbors” were going to “suddenly turn on them” they certainly would have been better prepared to defend themselves after all they had just been through. If only law enforcement had know ahead of time, they could have been prepared to defend the Jews like the brave British Constables (pppffffttt) did in 1929 Hevron massacrei. From the Jewish Virtual Library

The Jews had no adequate means for self-defense since the police had confiscated the few pistols among them just one day previously. In this pogrom, the largest attack on Jews following the Nazi era, 60–70 Jews were murdered, including children and pregnant women, and around 100 were injured

And this is all just in Kielce! I recently read a book called Defy The Darkness by Joe Rosenblum. Joe lived in Poland prior to WWII, he went through several concentration camps and survived as well as saving others. And he will very well tell you what it was like living in Poland before, during and after nazi occupation. He will also tell you what it was like living in more than one concentration camp, and how he managed to survive. He also survived surgery by the infamous Dr. Mengele, who actually did operate on Joe, despite him being a Jew, to save his life. As to the German people not knowing what was going on? Pffftt, he told what it was like being on one of those death camp marches when they were being marched through German towns. It’s also interesting that Mengele didn’t believe any of the bad stuff said about the Jews. He thought they were brilliant people who had done nothing wrong to the Germans.

But why were so many Polish Jews sitting ducks? Well, at one time Poland had the greatest tolerance and acceptance of Jews. History of the Jews in Poland

The history of the Jews in Poland dates back over 1,000 years. For centuries, Poland was home to the largest and most significant Jewish community in the world. Poland was a principal center of Jewish culture, thanks to a long period of statutory religious tolerance and social autonomy. This ended with the Partitions of Poland which began in 1772, in particular, with the discrimination and persecution of Jews in the Russian Empire.

Another reason is some refused to see reality, they refused to accept it, even as they were on their way to the death camps. This is another article well worth reading, it’s not long either.

On one occasion, my grandfather told me, his unit of partisan fighters blew up a railroad bridge and waited in ambush. When the train eventually approached and was forced to stop in order to avoid plummeting into the canyon depths, the partisans charged aboard and killed all of the Nazi troops who were manning the cars. Afterwards, the partisans opened a passenger car from which they had heard the sound of people talking excitedly and crying. Inside was a group of Jews dressed in their finest clothes and grasping suitcases filled with their possessions as if they were on their way to a long vacation. The Jews on board were shocked and apprehensive about the strange-looking people from the woods who had attacked their train and killed all of the Nazi soldiers, initially refusing to believe that their liberators were Jewish themselves.

Yes, no doubt the Polish people had the highest regard for the Jews living among themselves.

House in Kielce, Poland, found to be made of Jewish gravestones. To be quite honest, it wasn’t a house, it was a cowshed. Suspect the nazis did not build many cowsheds while they were there.

An article from the Daniel Pipes web site (article not written by Mr. Pipes, but rather by a contributor) Poland had a terrible long history of anti-Semitism before the World War II and is still. He ends his column by saying

Finally, not all Poles are bad….

No doubt, but in the radio show Phantom Nation the host points out,

Many Poles lost their lives trying to help the Jews. Yad Vashem has honored almost 7 thousand Christians, but out of a country of 35 million in 1939, that’s not that many people . Of the 3 million Polish Jews that lost their lives, 200 thousand were murdered by at least as many Polish Christians, not nazis. The Polish nation has a history of violence against the Jews. Bibi can’t see the serious anti-Jews acts, he thinks with a nice statement they will love us. For Poles, WWII was about the nazi aggression to Poles, they have not room for what the Poles did to the Jews. The host points out Bibi’s exceedingly weak response to Poland’s new laws.

It’s really a good program, you can listen to the whole show.

Other sources also chide Bibi for his very weak response. Which of course if why I truly feel Moshe Feiglin would be a far better leader. Controversy Over Israel-Poland Joint Statement

A couple of items you may or not know, Poland wanted to ship all the Jews to….Madagascar, and the Evian Conference on Jewish refugees preceded and enabled giving validity to the 1942 Wannsee Protocol. France, betraying Jews since looooong before Sarah Halimi was murdered.

Joe Rosenblum also looked very Aryan, that’s how he managed to work on a farm, survive and help support his family.

And today?

Poland’s official anti-Semitism, basically, you’re forbidden to suggest Poland had anything to do with the slaughter of Jews. Do so and you get a fine and jail time.

Not surprisingly, many Israelis and holocaust survivors objected to this. The law was put on a freeze.

And then, there is the decision on how to “commemorate” the Kielce pogrom.

Historian Prof. Jan Grabowski, author of the book Hunt for the Jews, sparked public outcry in Poland when he determined that more than 200,000 Jews in Poland were murdered directly or indirectly by locals and that most citizens of the occupied state stood idly by, even when they understood what was taking place…..

Nowhere in the program is there mention of Polish assistance, complicity, or even acquiescence in the atrocities committed against the Jews in Kielce. Indeed, from the program it is difficult to guess who, if anybody, murdered Jews in Kielce, as it appears the entire Polish population was busy assisting them.

So basically, academia decided rather than look at what really happened, they would just celebrate the minority event of some of the righteous helping Jews and ignore how many Jews were killed by their fellow Poles. As you can tell, academia planned the event. Let’s ignore the tragedy of what happened to the Jews and just talk about the few that may have tried to help.

It would be easier to accept that Poland is no longer this way if they weren’t trying to force people to stop discussing and learning history, because those who ignore it, or cover it up? Are doomed to repeat it.

iThe third speaker was Uri Arnon of Bar-Ilan University who spoke about the British perspective. Arnon displayed many documents from both British and Israeli archives to prove that the British mandatory authorities were complicit in allowing the massacre to happen. One document alluded to British police officers changing their stories to match a pre-concocted alibi as to how they failed to protect the Jewish community. Arnon also detailed the mistreatment of the survivors following the massacre who were forcibly deported to Jerusalem and denied access to return. From Conference & Memorial for 1929 Hebron Massacre This whole article is well worth reading.
