Raise Up For Us Wise Judges

16 ויקם יהוה שפטים ויושיעום מיד שסיהם׃ 17 וגם אל שפטיהם לא שמעו כי זנו אחרי אלהים אחרים וישתחוו להם סרו מהר מן הדרך אשר הלכו אבותם לשמע מצות יהוה לא עשו כן׃ 18 וכי הקים יהוה להם שפטים והיה יהוה עם השפט והושיעם מיד איביהם כל ימי השופט כי ינחם יהוה מנאקתם מפני לחציהם ודחקיהם׃ ~~ Shoftim 2:16-18

16 Then the Lord raised up judges, who saved them out of the hand of those who plundered them. 17 Yet they did not listen to their judges, for they whored after other gods and bowed down to them. They soon turned aside from the way in which their fathers had walked, who had obeyed the commandments of the Lord, and they did not do so. 18 Whenever the Lord raised up judges for them, the Lord was with the judge, and he saved them from the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge. For the Lord was moved to pity by their groaning because of those who afflicted and oppressed them.~~Judges 2:16-18

Judges have been in the news a lot lately. For instance the hearing on Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court.

Several of the same senators who helped unanimously confirm Gorsuch to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in July 2006 are now railing against his nomination by President Trump to the highest court in the land.

But I suppose it really didn’t matter who President Trump picked, the Demoncrats planned to protest and showed up with pre-printed signs to do so. But as is pointed out, since they didn’t know WHO he was going to nominate, the just left the spot for the name blank and filled it in with a magic marker.

Well, that certainly sends a clear message you are standing firmly on principle!

Then we have the left wing courts in Israel that resulted in Jewish families being thrown from their homes, for the second time, because of questionable evidence from a left-wing group based on questionable laws. Or questionable patchwork of laws perhaps.

Then you could have your life ruined by the ruling of a left-wing court like Elor Azariya.

If ever there has been a time our countries could use some wise judges, now would be good. For some reason, people think it is fine now to riot, destroy personal property and physically attack people in the name of “peaceful protest”. I saw a meme on Facebook that said “Love Trumping Hate involves a lot more arson and assault than I expected”.

For some reason, groups of people, large groups of people, have reckoned it is safe for them to do these sorts of things. It’s fine for them to block roads, attack people and vehicles with no consequences. Well, not to them anyway. The people they attack, they aren’t so much worried about. It’s bad enough that some states and proposing legislation that basically, says if you accidentally kill a protester you will not be prosecuted.

But these protesters only want what’s best for humanity, the environment and think President Trump will ruin the world and they care so much about every living being?

Horse feathers.

Yet another mob of around 200 people blocked another ambulance necessitating the EMS crew to perform in the field a procedure that is normally done in the hospital. The police attempted to move the leader off the road so the ambulance could get through. He refused. The comments under the article are interesting, some commenting that in certain cities the Judges would let him off without even a fine. Have you seen some of the videos of masses of people swelling up onto freeways? They don’t care what kind of wrecks they create when people try to avoid hitting them. They don’t care about the people their actions may kill. I can see why different states are talking about such laws. Police have been told to stand down by ideological politicians and Judges have not followed the law.

Being a Judge is a big responsibility. You have the lives of innocent people in your hands. Ruth Bader Gargoyle (as someone I know calls her) has demonstrated more than once that she has no desire to follow the Constitution, and has shown poor judgment more than once. She also doesn’t keep her word. She is still on the court and hasn’t left the country.

The we have the Judge who halted the travel ban from seven countries that are known for creating terrorists. The Judge it seems, either lied, or was ignorant of facts, and history too, one might add. Robart said there had been no terrorist attacks, there have been 78.

And as Rush Limbaugh points out, despite what people think about Robart,

And remember Judge Robart is not a Republican. He’s a Republican-appointed judge, but he is a left-wing judicial activist actually chosen by Patty Murray, the senator.

Yes, sad to say, the safety of innocent people rests on decisions made by such as these. Todd Starnes makes the point Judges need extreme vetting.

They seem to think that anyone not on the left is a threat. And I’m sure their judicial opinions would be based on this false logic. For instance, could you imagine being a conservative, or a concealed carry person coming before this “Judge”. It’s not photoshop, I promise.

Impartial Judge or lack of judgment?

Travis County (Texas) Judge Sarah Eckhardt started her session on January 24 by putting on the pink knitted “pussy” hat. Yeah, boy howdy, nothing says I’m going to be a fair impartial judge and do my job like starting out your court session by putting on a pink “pussy” power hat.

Some Judges to actually try to use some sense when they hear cases. Remember the story I brought you about Cox and Kettler involving the sound suppressors in Kansas? Well, that case has been heard.

The sentence handed down by U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten still leaves intact the federal felony convictions against Shane Cox and Jeremy Kettler, both of Chanute, Kansas. Cox, 45, was given two years of supervised probation, and Kettler, 28, got one year of supervised probation.

Well, yeah, goodie and all that, but the law said:

The Kansas Second Amendment Protection Act, which passed in 2013, says firearms, accessories and ammunition manufactured and kept within the borders of Kansas are exempt from federal gun control laws.

Marten told the two men that while state law is not available to them as a defense, it is a factor he can take into account at their sentencing.

“I am satisfied you both had a good faith belief that you are protected by that statute,” Marten said.

So, WHY Judge, didn’t it mean what it said? That’s what Cox did. Made items for residents of Kansas.

Who is on the Supreme Court will matter for a longgggg time. Liberals will hate anyone that is not going to view the tattered Constitution as a “living breathing document” so they can kill it. There will be Second Amendment cases come before the court, there will be civil rights cases come before the court. Who would you rather see on the court, a Judge such as Neil Gorsuch or Sarah “Pussy hat” Eckhardt?

Next time Judges are up for election in your state, perhaps check with your local grassroots Second Amendment Rights group, see if they have recommendations. And seriously, who wants to show up in court with a joke like Sarah Eckhardt? If I were the defendant I’d be thinking that would be cause for a re-trial right there. But, I’m not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV.

And now the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled. They have ruled politics and ideology are more important that legal precedence and American lives.

I wonder who we could ask if they think there is a likelihood of terrorists coming in with refugees? Oh, how about Bashar Al-Assad of Syria? The whole column is here.

If you are familiar with Mark Levin he’s a lawyer with a top radio show, and here’s his take on the 9th Circuits decision.

 

In two minutes, A Time Lapse of Terror from the 1980s to November 2015. Good job 9th Circuit, I’m sure our odds are fine, no worries, nothing to see here, move along.

Please G-d, raise up for us wise Judges!

Good Relations

I’ll admit it. I’ve never raised human children. I’ve seen a plenty in the checkout line at Walmart that I truly believe if I had raised them, they would be behaving in a much different manner. Namely, with manners. They pitch that screaming hissy fit in the checkout line for that toy action figure because they know their parents will give in to get them to shut up and people will quit staring at them. If they buy it for the brat? They’re toast. Until they make a believer out of that kid that such behavior is going to result in dire and most painful consequences.

No, I haven’t raised human children, but I have a dog that weighs almost as much as I do, usually, he obeys requests/commands in Hebrew or English fairly promptly. I have a 1300 lbs horse, and not long after I got him, I understood why I got such a good deal on him. He’s not a bad boy, he just like most critters, wants things his way. When you have a 1300 lb animal that thinks he can walk all over you, and ignore your commands with no consequences, he will walk all over you. Sometimes literally. He too understands what I ask of him, in Hebrew and English. I have smart kids. But the horse got smart because he learned if I asked him to do something and he fired off a kick at my head, the repercussions will be immediate. And they are, and he decides that wayward kick wasn’t near as much fun as he thought it would be. It has to be this way for us to have a peaceful, harmonious relationship. And we do. I respect and love him, I enjoy my time with him, and I believe he does with me as well. He has a quick agile mind and enjoys learning. But if left to his own devices, he would be a bully. A 1300 lb bully. When bullies get away with intimidation and what they want by acting out they will continue to do so because the payoff is what they want. And the longer it goes on, the more I risk being hurt and the more it takes to convince him that he is on a path he doesn’t want to be on. You have to send them a strong, very strong signal that what has worked in the past will not only no longer work, but result in a most unpleasant action.

Perhaps you have heard that there has been a bit of a scuffle going on in the land of Israel. That every once in a while (daily) a group of Arabs which call themselves Falestinians try to kill a group of people indigenous to the area known as Jews. They are quite comfortable doing this for a couple of reasons. They’ve been doing it for years with the tacit support of other nations. In 1948, the British armed the Arabs against the Jews to prevent the state of Israel. Of course things are much different now. Now it’s the U.S. providing funds for much needed humanitarian supplies such as cement to build terror tunnels and pay wages to the families of the terrorist that are caught by Israel or killed. This amazing feat of humanitarian aid was pulled off in the final hours of Barak Hussein Obama’s faux Presidency. To do this barry had the ketchup heiress john kerry send 221 million dollars to the pieceful Falestinians over the objections of congress. In other words, barry continued to do what barry has done for the last 8 years, tell Republicans to stuff it and do what he wants without repercussions. So kerry sent the money-gram. I wonder if Abu Mazen was shopping online at Amazon for his next new suit when word came that the new Sheriff in town had said “Whoaaa there NellyBelle”, not so fast. It seems the state department realizes that policies are now different than when bho was in charge. The money to be sent for humanitarian terror tunnels and terrorist pensions was frozen until the transfer could be reviewed by the Trump state department to see if it fit the guidelines. Of course Abu Mazen may not be that worried. Since in April of 2012, barry bypassed a Congress block and signed a waiver declaring that aid to the PA is “important to the security interests of the United States.” Huh, who knew building terror tunnels and paying imprisoned/dead terrorist wages was of security interest to the US? He probably thinks the money will be coming sooner or later and is ordering up a fresh batch of rocks, Molotov cocktails and guns to use on Israelis who insist on living in Israel and Americans who insist on visiting Israel. I’m sure his supplier will extend him credit as he has always been good for the funds before courtesy of barry and the money confiscated from the US taxpayer.

He’s used to the likes of barry & his dance partner kerry who still defend the dastardly bastardly betrayal of Israel.

In a farewell interview on CNN, Kerry explained why the Obama Administration refused to veto last month’s UN Security Council resolution targeting Israel, and why he thinks it was a “friendly” gesture.

Yeah, barry & kerry love Israel like OJ loved Nicole.

This is not enough to cause Abu Mazen to realize that the game has changed and the rules have changed. It will take more than that to convince Abu Mazen and the Arab world that they need to leave the Jews alone. It’s a good first step that Bibi has announced building permits for 2,500 homes in Judea and Samaria, as well as 566 new homes in the North of Jerusalem. Discussions are underway for 5,600 new housing units in the north and south parts. In a departure from the last 8 years, the US State Department has not uttered so much as a syllable of outrage. But I have an additional helpful suggestion.

Move the Embassy to Jerusalem, the capitol of Israel.

This is already being considered, and in fact during the campaigns was an issue.

Abu Mazen aka Mahmoud Abbas hyperventilated when he realized that Trump actually seems to be trying to keep some of his campaign promises. He had to log off Amazon and quit planning how he was going to spend his the poor Falestinian’s $221 million aid package. Then he began to do what pieceful Falestinian leaders do. He began to try to pitch a hissy and get his Arab friends to pitch hissys with him.

After weeks of shouting in the wind, the PLO finally managed to get some Arab threats going against a possible move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

On Tuesday, Azzam al-Ahmad of Fatah’s Central Committee said that the PLO has a 21-point plan on how to respond to such a move. He didn’t elaborate, but part of it is clearly to recruit whatever Arabs they can to justify the threat that Muslims worldwide will want to go to war over this.

In other words, since no one has made a big deal over this so far, the Palestinians must resort to ever-increasing incitement among Arab masses who are, frankly, too stupid to know the difference between moving an embassy into an area that the the entire world recognizes as Israeli and a “declaration of war against Islam.”

Palestinian Media watch says they are threatening world wide violence if they don’t get their way. World Wide.

France in show of solidarity with Israel at not having embassies located in their capitol is telling all countries to move their embassies out of Paris to Murat. Naw, just kidding. France jumped in on the side of the pieceful Falestinians. But then France has a large muslim population to contend with. And they’ve seen the results of that. France is behaving stupid and scared, this is a bad combination. France also has Jews fleeing, due to antisemitism. In spite the current attacks in Israel it seems. It’s so bad that:

In a speech he gave to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day at the European Parliament, European Jewish Congress (EJC) President Dr. Moshe Kantor called on European leaders to show their commitment to fighting hatred against Jews by adopting the definition of anti-Semitism agreed to in May by the Berlin-based International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) .

I would say aggressively going after those who murder them, harass and destroy their property would more effectively combat antisemitism, but hey, that’s just me. You have to be able to recognize evil, stand up to it and fight it for that to be effective.

Flattened
Flattened

But the pieceful Falestinians seem to think they’ve won.

PA officials: US caved to our pressure, won’t move embassy

PA official Ahmad Majadlani said the US had understood their hints and would not revisit the topic in the near future.

My advice to President Trump? DON’T blink! Move the embassy. If you don’t, you will have the brat in your shopping cart screaming for that toy action figure when he is 30 years old till he gets his way. If you do, Jews, Christians and anyone else in the muslim line of attack will in the end be safer. If any attacks are addressed promptly and strongly by the country in which they occur, the pieceful Falestinians will begin to understand, that a President Trump does not react the same way barry did. And if I were in the UN, I believe I’d make it clear that any muslim attacks in any country as a result of U.S. moving our embassy to Jerusalem will result in the cancellation of any and all funds. Period, immediately. I, personally have no desire to live under the threat of attack because some group of arabs doesn’t like something and threatens to pitch a hissy.

To have a peaceful partnership you have to have respect on both sides. With human children, dogs, horses, anything. They have to respect your leadership. If they don’t? There will be no trust, and nothing will be accomplished. It’s the same reason we can’t make “reasonable compromise” with anti-gun groups. THEY aren’t reasonable.

Well Mr. President Trump, if Rex Tillerson doesn’t work out for you, you can still get in touch with me through The Zelman Partisans.

Things Don’t Happen In A Vacuum

Shocked at the outrageous U.N. vote? Surprised? Just sad but think it’s none of our affair and has nothing to do with us, U.S.? Oh how I beg to differ.

You see, Obama and his evil minions made the affair. I’m surprised they didn’t have it catered, maybe it was.

Egypt originally proposed the resolution condemning Jews living in Israel, in the parts known as Judea and Samaria as well as East Jerusalem. It was proposed by Egypt at the behest of the pieceful Falestinians. After a call by President-Elect Trump to President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Egypt withdrew the resolution. It was then pushed by New Zealand, Venezuela, Malaysia and Senegal, as addressed by my colleague Y.B. This despite the fact that Israel has been more than kind to Senegal with monetary aid as well as agricultural technology.

Senegal defends their vote by saying they support the muslims in Falestine. Israel is the first on the scene when there is a catastrophe or crisis, and yet.

So let’s just take a brief look at the situation.Back in July of 2014Ben Shapiro pointed out that “This Is An Anti-Israel, “Jew Hating” Administration”

And Dr. Tsvi Sadan points out From the Soles of His Shoes: Obama’s Hostility Toward Israel He points out a very interesting little tidbit about a picture of barry.

Ever wonder how or why Samantha Powers was appointed to the UN? Well, she does favor invading Israel militarily, on the side of the Falestinians, of course.

So let’s just look at a tiny bit of history again about Judea and Samaria. Because Jews living there HAS been settled under international law. A long time ago. The whole article is well worth reading.

The only binding resolution of international law, a resolution which has never been countermanded to this very day, is the July 1922 Mandate for Palestine. Adopted by the League of Nations, that resolution recognized the “historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country.” It called for the creation of a Jewish national homeland anywhere west of the Jordan River.

Once the League of Nations was disbanded and the United Nations formed in its stead, the international community agreed to maintain all agreements and not “alter in any manner the rights whatsoever of any states or any peoples or the terms of existing international instruments to which Members of the United Nations may respectively be parties.” [Article 80, UN Charter, emphasis added] This provision wasn’t inserted by accident; it was known as “the Jewish People’s clause” at the time it was adopted in 1945 in order to enshrine the 1922 Mandate into international law.

The Mandate for Palestine adopted by the League of Nations was the last legally binding document delineating regional borders. In Article 5 of the Mandate it explicitly states “The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory shall be ceded or leased to, or in any way placed under the control of the Government of any foreign Power.”

The Palestine Mandate (and Iraq) was given to Britain to serve as a temporary trustee based on the resolution between the four principle Allied Powers in April 1920 at the San Remo Conference in Italy, which was signed by 51 nations. It was at that conference where the world powers adopted the 1917 Balfour Declaration (which originally allocated the eastern part of the Mandate for a Jewish state as well) creating a Jewish state. This same conference that created the Jewish state west of the Jordan River also created Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Iraq as Arab states….

Unfortunately, over the past generation the geo-political elites and the media has repeated the lie about an Arab “Palestinian state” and “illegal Israeli settlements” so many times that it has become true in the minds of so many people.

So.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” ~~joseph gerbils

Notice, nobody, not even the pieceful Falestinians were pitching hissy fits when JORDAN illegally occupied Judea and Samaria in Israel from 1948-1967, and EGYPT occupied Gaza. Where was the UN in light of the fact Israel’s boundaries were violated? Oh, appeasing.

“We have not taken foreign territory or any alien property, but have occupied our ancestral heritage, for some time unjustly wrested from us by our enemies; now that we have a favorable opportunity, we are merely recovering our ancestral heritage” (Maccabees 1, 15:33-34).

And so getting Egypt to push the resolution failed, Egypt refused.

So what’s a despot to do?

Get crazy Joe Biden to call the Ukraine and push them.

“[The hands] are American hands,” Elkin said, using a Biblical phrase in an interview with Ynet. “It was announced here in Ukraine that the Ukrainians really wanted to abstain, [but US Vice President Joe] Biden personally called the President of Ukraine and pressured the Ukrainians to vote in favor.”

An understandably miffed PM Netanyahu then refused to meet with Ukraine Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman. The sad irony of Groysman abounds.

And New Zealand is not just a _____________, they too, are weak ______________ because Israel’s good friend Britain pushed New Zealand. Why would they do that? I heard on a radio show once an explanation of why politicians pander to the muslim voters. Because there are so many of them. Once a certain amount of them are in a country, it’s voting is never the same. Do I know that’s what happened? No. But it’s a possibility. Also possible, the Falestinians have talked of suing Britain over the Balfour Declaration. I mean it’s not like Britain has a long proud tradition of siding with the arabs against the Jews and trying to keep Jews out of Israel. /snark.

No fool Netanyahu, Israel accuses Obama administration of helping craft, push UN censure.

But what will be the fallout?

Depends on who you are and your viewpoint. Jack Engelhard says, All bets are off after UN infamy and build baby, build. He says no reason not plow full steam ahead. I love Jack.

Fatah is jubilant. Fatah thanks UN members for giving it ‘permission’ to kill Jews

Fatah Hunting Permit, thanks barry & supporters.
Fatah Hunting Permit, thanks barry & supporters.

DEBKAfile has done a very thoughtful analysis of just what this is going to mean. UNSC resolution promotes Mid East war

As well as pointing out:

The one who abandoned Israel was US President Barack Obama – and not for the first time. During his eight years in office, Obama let Israel down at least three times on issues that jeopardized its security:

One of the first consequences of his 2011 “Arab Spring” initiative was the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak as Egyptian president and his direct promotion of the Muslim Brotherhood’s takeover of power in Cairo.

So, how did all this come to light? Well, the report from the Ukraine, and Egypt.

Egyptian report: US led the charge to pass the UN resolution The lyin’ piece of crap john kerry and that lyin’ piece of tripe susan “Benghazi was caused by a youtube video” rice.

And

Now this evidence seems to have been released by the Egyptians, in the form of the minutes of a meeting between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and PA officials Saeb Erekat and Ryad Mansour.

The whole report from Israellycool is pretty insightful. Bombshell Meeting Minutes Show Obama Administration Collusion With PA To Ambush Israel

But if you want a person on the street view of obama and hillary’s installation of the muslim brotherhood morsi and didn’t see Sama Elmasry‘s video after al-Sisi took over….just not sure it’s safe for work. She’s not fond of Israel either, but she’s got obama figured out a lot better than a lot of people in the US.

Israel fears barry’s not done. He’s got a few more days in office.

More fallout? I think we will see more incidents of what Y.B. just wrote about.

I mean, we’ve imported and are importing massive amounts of people from countries that do not love Jews or Christians so much. And in their minds? Apparently they view the resolution as a license. Not that they thought they needed one.

You know, we read about the horrible rise of Anti-Semitism in Europistan, and Britistan. Jews are afraid to wear a Kippah in public and some are afraid to go to Synagogue. In times past, they could and should make Aliyah to Israel, where they would be accepted and “safer” at least. Some countries make Synagogues pay for their own security. But where now, exactly are they suppose to live? Israel wasn’t big to start with. And as far as the pieceful Falestinians are concerned, the UN has just blessed their goals to make Judea and Samaria “Jew free”. Although “tripe rice” urged them not to use violence. Not because it’s wrong, but because it hurts their “cause”.

For her part, Israel needs to quit playing this game, take her marbles and annex Judea and Samaria. Then there will be no doubt as to who’s law applies. And the residents of Amona can live in peace, at least from their own government. They should do it tomorrow and tell the UN and barry to stuff it. They should then issue every resident of Judea and Samaria a rifle, handgun and plenty of ammunition. Every town gets a tank, maybe two. Let’s see how this goes.

This is the battle of the Maccabees all over again. An Israeli doctor released a statement recently that he wanted widely disseminated. The story of a pieceful Falestinian woman who was set aflame by her loving family. She was treated and given skin grafts at Soroka in Be’er Sheva. She returned for a follow up visit wearing a suicide belt to kill as many of those that saved her as she could. His point is, this is not a war of land, but a war of culture. And you can never appease that enough, you can never cede enough land. You can only submit and give up your culture to theirs.

Things don’t happen in a vacuum, there is a lot going on with this UN resolution. And, as one radio host pointed out last night, he lives in the area of Samaria, does this mean if he leaves the country he will be arrested as a international criminal?

It’s like the world wants Israel isolated, defenseless and Jews facing extreme Antisemitism unable to flee there for safety. Wait, something is ringing in the back of my mind.

But I think this resolution is a rock thrown into a pond. I think the ripples are going to spread further and wider than people ever suspected. And it was heinous and bogus to start with. From the president that has been heinous and bogus all along, leaving a “legacy” of heinous and bogus.

And, I’ll give you this video. Michael writes some good Second Amendment songs as well.

Dispelling Darkness with Light

This past November a group of Jews had gathered for communal prayer at their synagogue in Santa Monica, California.  Suddenly a menacing man entered the synagogue and shouted “Heil Hitler”.  Then he mimicked shooting a machine gun at the parishioners.  Before they could catch him, he ran away.

santa-monica

On the first night of Chanukah, they assembled again to light the menorah, intending to share the “light” of the commemoration with the public.  What they found on arriving was that someone had smeared food and feces about the entrance to their synagogue.

About the same time, someone in the retirement community of Sun City, Arizona were distressed to find that someone had run a truck into their large, custom, menorah.  It appeared that they then tried to tear it down.

sun-city-menorah-1

In so doing, the vandals did an estimated $7,000 damage to the menorah.

One of the synagogue’s members is a 104 year old survivor of the Holocaust.  Needless to say, it brought back ancient, but vivid, memories to pain that poor old man.  Mission accomplished, I suppose.

Bastards.

sun-city-menorah-2

Meanwhile Mr. Obama and his ilk conspired to embolden some of the most vile regimes & organizations on Earth, by attacking Israel in the United Nations.  Hardly a new plan.  Merely a new gambit.

It should be noted that while the General Assembly is mostly a bloviating mass of deviates and moral midgets, and of little true effect, the Security Council is an altogether different animal.  A supra-government with military powers.

This is a very serious move.

Fortunately, in response, Rabbi Levi Shemtov, of the American Friends of Lubavitch, (who had quite recently koshered the White House kitchen for an early, and embarrassing, “Chanukah” celebration) diplomatically gave reproach to the betrayal in the UN, saying:

“I know that some of us are so sad at what happened there with regard to Israel. We must remember that the way to counter any darkness, any disappointment is not with harsh rhetoric, not with anger, but when we create light, the darkness dissipates. Secretary Szubin (*)spoke before of fighting darkness with light … I remember those words being spoken to a particular man by the Rebbe [The Seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe; Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson] many, many years ago on Simchat Torah. The Rebbe told him you are working in a place where there is great grief and darkness, but remember that in that place of darkness, you can only counter it by lighting a candle. By creating light. … That man was Benjamin Netanyahu, and he was at the time the Ambassador to the United Nations.”

national-menorah-lighting

What a contrast.  I wish I could be so calm in the face of the behavior of the outgoing U.S. President and his toadies.

* Adam Szubin, an “Acting Undersecretary at the Department of Treasury”, was Mr. Obama’s mouthpiece for the occasion.  I think B.H.O. was off in the “rough” at the time looking for his sliced golf ball.   A “Slazenger 1”,  perhaps?

Hasbara

Recently UNESCO passed a resolution, for the second time this year, attempting to sever the Jewish People, and the modern State of Israel, from Har Habayit; the Temple Mount.  Yes, the leveled hilltop where the First & Second Temples stood.  The exhibition of such raw hubris in that vote is jaw-dropping.

Lots of ruffled feathers ensued.  The Chair of UNESCO distanced herself & even got death threats.  Mexico fired their (Jewish) ambassador to the UN when he walked out.  Others wanted a do-over.

This stupid vote, one of hundreds of stupid UN votes, is hardly the last.  Some believe that Obama has at least one last nut-kick waiting for Israel, before he leaves office.  Probably so.

During the past few weeks, I have also (against my better judgment) seen chunks of the second and third Presidential Debates between Mr. Trump & Mrs. Clinton.  I was mostly interested in the tactical skills utilized and the degree of overt bias the “moderators” exhibited.  Plenty there to chew on.

What surprised me, however, was when the 2nd Amendment came up.  Hillary was carefully prepped, and exhibited all the attributes of a skilled politician, masterfully stroking her “base” while proffering poll-tested, oleaginous, statements to the “undecided” voter.

Then, like a groggy man stepping in dog-poo in the dark, Mr. Trump maundered about, desperately trying to be all things to everyone. And failing, pitiably.

Most of the response to the UNESCO vote in the Jewish world has been the same time-worn things.  Shock that the presumed leaders of the non-Jewish world still resent and hate them, despite numberless abasements and concessions, spanning two-thousand years of exile.

The tough-talkers typically fall back to established modes of “Hasbara”.  Explanation.  As if Titus, or Martin Luther, or Tomás de Torquemada, or Bogdan Chmielnicki, or Iosif Dzhugashvili, or Mohammed Amin al-Husseini, were merely misinformed about the true nature of the Jew and his mission in this World.  Right.

Likewise, most of the 2nd Amendment groups, starting with that greatest advocate for (and often actual author of) victim disarmament legislation, the National Rifle Association, mewl about. Mincing words, and sharpening their dagger to stab US in the back when the next NRA “A” rated legislator barks.

Think about that the next time some NRA stooge talks about how they oppose “new” laws and only want the Government to enforce “existing” gun laws.  Ahhh…  But, we all have to be reasonable.  Right? Law abiding.

Law. Abiding.

Is a “law” that contravenes the plain wording of the Constitution a “law”?  What if the Constitution was amended to require the gassing of the Gun-Owners, or Jews, or Muslims, or Gays, or Redheads?

A few Jews are openly calling for Israel to withdraw from fishhook stuffed things like the Memorandum of Understanding with the U.S. Government, and all that money.  American taxpayers’ money.

Some folks have long argued that, history or not, being in the United Nations is a very bad thing (for both Israel, and the U.S., for that matter) and that they should get out. Now.

The late Mike Vandeboegh, of blessed memory, was steadfast in his resolve to both be immovable on principle, and savvy on tactics.  To fight the fight, as much as was possible, with “clean hands”.  A few… sadly, a very few… others in this fight, follow his example.

Most others are satisfied with 2nd Amendment “hasbara”, and relying on the NRA & their Republican politicians “make the best deal we could get” in every future battle.  The slow trudge into a muddy pit, I say.

Each of us has our “Line”.  At least, I sure hope so. The point beyond which we will say “NO”, and mean it.

When do we say…NO? When do we MEAN IT?  Worth thinking about.

Chag Sukkot Samach! And GET….

Or חג סוכות שמח

Sukkot is the last of the three pilgrimage festivals. The other two are Pesach and Shavuot. Those are the festivals that the Torah commands to travel to the Temple in Jerusalem.

Following Yom Kippur, which is a very solemn holiday, Sukkot is joyous. Sukkot is commanded in the Torah in Vayikra, Leviticus 23.

33 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 34 “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month and for seven days is the Feast of Booths 1 to the Lord. 35 On the first day shall be a holy convocation; you shall not do any ordinary work. 36 For seven days you shall present food offerings to the Lord. On the eighth day you shall hold a holy convocation and present a food offering to the Lord. It is a solemn assembly; you shall not do any ordinary work.

And

39 On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the produce of the land, you shall celebrate the feast of the Lord seven days. On the first day shall be a solemn rest, and on the eighth day shall be a solemn rest. 40 And you shall take on the first day the fruit of splendid trees, branches of palm trees and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the Lord your G-d seven days. 41 You shall celebrate it as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It is a statute forever throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month. 42 You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All native Israelites shall dwell in booths, 43 that your generations may know that I made the people of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your G-d.”

Now, about this business of dwelling in booths when G-d got brought the children out of Egypt. For a time, G-d also had a booth, the tent of meeting, the Tabernacle. It was during this time while they were dwelling in the Sinai that the Ark of the Covenant was created. After the children were in the land that G-d lead them, they set up the Tabernacle and the Ark. In Shiloh. And there it remained until the first Temple was built in Jerusalem. It was to Shiloh back then that the people journeyed three times a year with their offerings. It was there that for 369 years in the 11th and 12th century B.C.E. that Jewish spiritual life was centered.

In 957 B.C.E. King Solomon began construction of the Temple on the site chosen by his Father, King David. David has chosen the spot in Jerusalem where Avraham had been prepared to offer up his son. Before King David ruled from Jerusalem, he was anointed king and ruled from Hebron. For the next 400 or so years Jews were able to go to the Temple in Jerusalem. That ended in 597 B.C.E. when Nebuchadnezzar began the siege of Jerusalem. Little point of interest about Hebron, it is the site of the oldest Jewish community in the world

So, the command is to go to Jerusalem for the festival of Sukkot. The Temple, Beit HaMikdash has been there since 957 B.C.E. And it was on that spot that the Second Temple was built.

Islam was created in the 7th century. C.E.

And this concludes the history portion of our column.

Back-story is good though.

So it is with great shock, I tell you…..forget that. There is no shock on this end. Not a shred. But I will still tell you UNESCO has decided that there is NO connection to the Jewish people on the Temple Mount, Beit HaMikdash. And the Uninformed Nitwits Erroneously Spouting Complete Ordure, (UNESCO), wrote up their little proposal in which they said the Temple Mount AND the Western Wall are EXCLUSIVELY a muslim holy site. They put their Jewish Hebrew names in brackets, making it seem as though it was not valid, just a claim someone made.

Do you ever feel like you just woke up in the middle of a Twilight Zone episode?

The response was pretty quick from some. Most Israeli politicians responded at once. In America Senator Ted Cruz and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen were joined by Jerrold Nadler in sending a letter from many in Congress to the UNESCO executive board condemning the decision and urging opposition. And to get their heads out, never mind, to get their heads on straight. While most of the world was outraged the F.A., the Falestinian Authority expressed pleasure with the announcement. No shock there.

Let me ask a question here, if mohammerhead tied his horse to the Western Wall, which is a retaining wall from the JEWISH temple, where do muslims think the wall came from he tied his horse to? Apparently mohammerhead had never taught his horses to ground tie.

So, if this piece of ordure resolution had been allowed to stand, let me tell you what it would look like. Currently on the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, Jews and Christians are not allowed to pray. Only muslims are allowed to pray there. There are ten gates for muslims to enter. Only one for Jews and Christians, and you will stand in line to be allowed in, you can be thrown off for any or no reason. Because the Al Aqsa mosque is located there. Why?

Over the centuries, the Muslims who eventually took control of Jerusalem built two mosques on the Temple Mount, the site of the two Jewish Temples. (This was no coincidence; it is a common Islamic custom to build mosques on the sites of other people’s holy places.) Since any attempt to level these mosques would lead to an international Muslim holy war (jihad) against Israel, the Temple cannot be rebuilt in the foreseeable future.

Now you understand a bit more why the muslims wanted to build a mosque on the site of the twin towers, at ground zero?

Now, at the Western Wall, which is under Israeli control, Jews, Christians and muslims are allowed to just walk up and pray. You might have to wait for a spot to get to the wall, but that is determined by how many people are there, and how long it takes them to walk away from a spot. People just kind of line up behind people standing far enough back as to be respectful.

For a bit more on the political climate at the Temple Mount this is a good article.

But let us go back even a bit further. Let’s take a look at Hebron, shall we? Where King David ruled before he relocated to Jerusalem. In Hebron you will find the Cave of Machpelah. It is the world’s most ancient Jewish site and the second holiest place for the Jewish people. The cave is divided into three rooms, Jews and Christians have no access to the largest room except 10 days a year. Would you like to go to the cave? You will only be able to go with armed Israeli guards to protect you. You see, the muslims, the pieceful Falestinians have control of this site as well.

Now let’s go back a little further, to Shiloh. Shiloh is located in Shomron. And Shomron and Judea are what some people call the “West Bank”. It is not the West Bank, it is Judea and Shomron, or Samaria if you will. It is not “occupied territory”. It is in Israel, and there are Jews living in Israel, and some of them live in Judea and Shomron, Samaria. Caroline Glick had a column out recently regarding, basically, Israeli sovereignty. I don’t know of any other country in the world that has to justify building homes in their country. They do not have to justify to the UN, the US, the EU or anyone else when they build homes, they just do so. Part of Caroline’s column pointed out that Israel is going to have to change how it looks at things, and how it approaches solutions.

For a generation Israel’s governments have rejected the idea that we can succeed if we resist the UN. It is time that we abandon this defeatist attitude and work diligently to broker deals with member states to reduce the room for Obama and Clinton, if she is elected, to maneuver against us in the Security Council.

And

Over the past eight years of the Obama Administration, US condemnations of Israeli construction beyond the 1949 armistice lines, including in Jerusalem, have become steadily more obsessive.

This has been part of an unambiguous policy to delegitimize Israel in America. Until Obama entered the White House in 2009, there was a clear difference between the attitudes of Europe and the attitude of the United States towards us. Under Obama we have witnessed the Europeanization of American attitudes towards the State of Israel.

So far, Obama’s efforts have only been successful in the Democratic Party. Party activists have worked hand in hand with anti-Israel movements, most notably the BDS movement. In addition, several Democratic lawmakers have shown their willingness to abandon Israel, and that number is growing.

And it’s working. I recently worked a Ethnic event where many countries come together in a park, we have food sometimes, and sometimes our dance group comes and performs, usually some goodies from Israel to sell, maps, brochures and other information we give out and we answer questions. This was our first time to have some of our goods from Lev HaOlam. I was sitting there minding the table and watching people when a lady came up to the table, took a look at me, and our table and asked “how many mooooslims go to your church”? You ask the girl with the big Magen David on her shirt how many mooooslims (that’s how she said it, drawing out the ooooo) go to her “church”? Lady, you are a bit confused on your religions aren’t you? Told her none, moooooslims go to mosques. I explained this is a cultural event, not a religious event. There were people there from many countries. The point is the country the culture, our table was sponsored by the JCC, not a particular Synagogue. She then informed me that Israel is a mooooslim country. I kid you not. I informed her “It is the ONE JEWISH state in the world, and it IS JEWISH”. I perhaps was a bit adamant. She said there were more moooooslims living there than Jews. No, there aren’t.

This is a battle, and it’s not about “co-existing”. If you think it is re-read the part about how other religions that have ties to the Temple Mount, Har HaBeit, are allowed to worship there. They aren’t. Read the part about Hebron again, how others can go see the holy sites without armed guards, they can’t. You can not “co-exist” with someone that wants to wipe you out.

So here it is, Sukkot, one of the three pilgrimages when we are suppose to go to Har HaBeit. And UNESCO says it’s not Jewish.

They did back off, apparently even the Director made a statement.

UNESCO chairman Michael Verbes said, “I am aware of the connection between Israel and Jerusalem, and I will never deny it. Jerusalem’s Old City and its walls are a UNESCO world heritage site since 1982, and have been recorded as being holy to three religions. This is our stance on the issue, and it trumps all decisions that the principal committee has recently made.”

The UNESCO Director General Irina Bokova also spoke out against it, though not very strongly. Even this tepid defense of Israel has earned her death threats. She now had additional protection.

But in this article lies a key to part of the problem.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett was unimpressed by Bokova’s statement, however, saying it was not enough.

“The Al Aqsa Mosque [or] Al-Haram al-Sharif, the sacred shrine of Muslims, is also the Har HaBayit – or Temple Mount – whose Western Wall is the holiest place in Judaism,” Bokova said in a statement Friday, according to Haaretz.

No, no it isn’t Naftali. Har HaBeit is. The Western Wall is just the closest we can get to Har HaBeit right now because Moshe Dayan handed it over to the muslims. And that’s why we can’t go there for Sukkot.

But this is about far more than Sukkot, this is about a world that is buying a historically false narrative that Jews didn’t live in Israel. It’s about erasing the past so it’s easier to erase the present. It’s about attacks on Jews living in their historic homelands of Judea and Samaria and those attacks being excused by the world, the mainstream media and the democrat party as “justified” or perhaps understandable because they lived in “settlements”. They lived in the “occupied territories”. So, democratic party, liberals, media, UN, EU and UNESCO, where exactly is it you think Jews should be allowed to live. Because the same attacks in Judea, Shomron and Hebron are being carried out in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Yafo. Where is it that you think we should be allowed to build our Sukkah?

Crickets.???

Well, here’s the deal. Sukkahs are up, prayers are being said, meals are being eaten and conversation is taking place. It’s a joyous festival. So as far as UNESCO, US liberals and democrats, EU and UN? Chag Sukkot Samach, now get out of my Sukkah!

Sez Who?

So I saw something yesterday that made me start to come out of my chair and yell at my computer. And I would have, but it was stormy outside and my puppy was curled up behind my office chair.

An Article saying the NRA has endorsed Missouri Attorney General Chris (Flipper) Koster for Governor. It’s short and ugly:

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund on Tuesday endorsed Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee.

In its endorsement, the group praised Koster’s position on Second Amendment rights.

“On behalf of the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, I am pleased to announce your  ‘A’ rating and endorsement for Governor in the 2016 Missouri General Election,” wrote the super-PAC’s chairman, Chris Cox.

“I thank you for never wavering from your Second Amendment beliefs. As you know, your long and distinguished Second Amendment record is greatly appreciated by your fellow NRA members in Missouri and the United States of America,” he added.

Koster welcomed the endorsement and further pledged to defend the Second Amendment as governor.

“I am pleased to receive the endorsement of the NRA,” he wrote in a statement.

“As a rural prosecutor, State Senator, and now as Attorney General, I have long defended Missouri’s hunting heritage and Second Amendment rights. As Governor, I pledge to continue to protect the traditions and values of people across Missouri.”

Koster leads his Republican opponent, retired Navy SEAL Eric Greitens by an average of 6.3 points, according to RealClearPolitics.

Let’s just chat about this, shall we? Backstory is good, backstory and Israeli coffee are always good. And since I’ve have both, I’ll share, at least the backstory part.

The first item up is the Department of Revenue scandal, it broke first. The Missouri Department of Revenue was illegally complying with the REAL ID act by sending the private data of Missourians to a company out of state called Morpho-Trust, they were illegally collection biometric data on Missourians using a Department of Homeland Security grant to do these things. They lied about it to the legislature telling them they used the grant to purchase hole punches and similar office equipment. Yeah, you can tell the department was headed up by a Gov. Jay Nixon-D appointee. But the woman behind a bunch of this, ala Valerie Jarrett was Jackie Bemboom. Who knew better, but instead of following Missouri law, she complied illegally with REAL ID and sold out Missourians to the Federal Government. But her betrayal didn’t end there. The Missouri Department of Revenue gave ALL the information on Missouri’s concealed carry holders to the federal government. Via the Missouri Highway Patrol. The Governor Jay Nixon-D denied their was a database of CCW holders turned over. But there was. They Highway patrol admitted they had done it. At first they said it was a Social Security request for a list of Missouri’s CCW holders. Then it became a joint request, social security AND the ATF. And they gave it to them. How, you ask, did they deliver the data on Missouri’s concealed carry holders? Why, they sent it in an Excel file. On a disc. With a password. Which was included in the cover letter sent WITH the disc. Sent via regular US mail. Lots and lots of mis-doing here, illegal actions, betrayal of ALL Missourians with the data base of info sent to Morpho-Trust, a French company. Missouri law prohibits data on Missourians from being sent out of state, I believe. And so did Chris “Flipper” Koster-D SPRING into action to go after those that broke the law? Um, no, not so much. In fact, not at all. Oh? The “Flipper” part you ask? Flipper used to be a Republican, till 2008 I believe when he sensed the political winds would go with the barry sotero in his bid for the Presidency and changed to a Dimocrat. Then he got the nickname “Flipper”. Backstory IS good, isn’t it. So no, Flipper that great NRA endorsed candidate did zip, zilch, nada about this one.

You can listen to Sen. Kurt Schaefer talk about it on the Dana show to know just how bad this really was.

Dana has some good links and information on her site regarding this.

You can read more about the DOR scandal at Missouri Family Network’s web site. They are the ones that broke the news of the scandal and were all over it.

http://missourifamilynetwork.net/cat/mo-dor/

So let’s move forward to September 2013. Missouri had a beautiful piece of legislation that was going to become law. The Second Amendment Protection act. Nullifying federal gun control laws that were in conflict with the Missouri Constitution, preventing newspapers from publishing the names and addresses of gun owners like some newspapers in other states have done, good stuff, things like that. Predictably Gov. Jay Nixon-D vetoed it. Anything that protects or restores gun rights is an anathema to Gov. Nixon-D. But, the Missouri legislature has overridden Anti-gun governors before. As they did “One Term” Bob Holden-D when he vetoed Missouri’s Concealed Carry law. One Term Bob is probably wishing the people of Missouri had given him a Attorney General as duplicitous as Flipper. The veto override should have been a done deal. It was passed with a veto proof majority. But that didn’t happen. For the first time Missouri’s GRASSROOTS Second Amendment groups held TWO rallies in one year. The purpose of the second rally was just to encourage the veto override of The Second Amendment Protection Act.

Why you ask would this be necessary? Well, I’ll let Sen. Brian Nieves tell you about it. From the second rally on September 11, 2013.

Yeah, boy howdy. That Flipper sure is a stalwart of gun rights isn’t he?

And now a word about the NRA, and their “pro-gun” help in the state of Missouri.

The NRA is a BIG part of the reason it took Missourians an additional 13 years to get concealed carry. But that’s another story. Let’s just look at 2014. Missouri tried again for a Second Amendment Protection act. Sen. Brian Nieves the bill’s sponsor accepted a fairly inoffensive amendment from Sen. Nasheed-D, a rabid anti-gun liberal. It was about one sentence.

“Section 2. Upon becoming aware that a firearm has been stolen, a person shall have seventy-two hours to report such theft.”

Here’s the NRA email blast sent out about it,

Missouri: De-facto Gun Owner Registry Legislation Moving In Missouri Senate! Call Your Senators NOW!

The “offending” sentence was stripped out of the bill, and as she promised Nasheed-D filibustered the bill. The point of accepting the one sentence amendment was she wouldn’t filibuster.

The unlikely pair of Senators even had a press conference about it.

The NRA lied. They tried to sink the SAPA, again. Missouri is not the only state that has had problems with the NRA trying to stop state sovereignty legislation. Florida has I know, as has Wyoming around the same time period.

So, Missourians have already suffered greatly due to the NRA’s “help” and the “pro-gun stalwart” Flipper Koster-D. And the NRA is proudly endorsing Flipper-D for Governor, perfect.

Let me make a couple of things clear here though. I am NOT endorsing Eric Greitens, and this column is not about pointing out what a piece of sh cr work Koster-D is, though he is. The point is those little orange NRA cards are fixing to flood mailboxes soon, very soon. And people will believe them. The NRA does have some good programs, Eddie Eagle and some of their women’s programs are good. But when it comes to politics and legislation? I have yet to see them be of much, if any, help in Missouri, and I have really good sources there.

So, when it comes to elections this year, I’m going to ask you to consider something. IF you get one of those orange cards or NRA endorsements, PLEASE, don’t just say “ok” and do it. Double check the information with a Second Amendment Rights group like Gun Owners of America. They do good candidate ratings. For local races, if you are not part of a local grassroots Second Amendment rights group, join one or at least check with them on their web site to see who they are endorsing. When you do that, you might double check to make sure they are independent of the NRA and not just towing the party line.

This is only ONE race taking place in the US, in ONE state and look what I was able to come up with on the NRA endorsed candidate. A man who has cost Missourians state sovereignty legislation. So before you believe that little orange card, or let your friends believe that little orange card when you hear “endorsed by” ask SEZ WHO? Are THEY credible? While we can never depend on politicians to save us, we don’t have to make it harder on ourselves either.

Dear World

I’ve decided to try to be creative. I made ya’ll a movie. The reading was part of a radio program and then I spent time collecting pictures I thought would go well with each part and tried to make the timing on the photo and the reading come out right. Yeah, I love ya’ll that much. So this is my first, and possibly only, multimedia video column.

Not long after I heard this recitation as part of Walter Bingham’s radio show I heard about some Jewish leaders in Rhode Island who are lobbying some of the pro-self defense legislators in the state to make it easier for criminals to attack defenseless people. They felt that if good, law-abiding citizens did not have the means to defend themselves and criminals were aware of that, then crime rates would surely drop. That children would be safer as they watched their parents attacked, unable to have the means to mount an effective defense of themselves and their children. Well, perhaps I’m paraphrasing a bit, a little.

But I was sad to hear this. Like I said, after having heard the recitation, and hearing the cries for more defenseless victims I can only shake my head. There are those that think they can find logic in why some are attacked. Dafna Meir was attacked because she lived in Otniel. No, she was attacked because she was Jew living in Israel. The horrible photos are from the Har Nof Synagogue massacre. Not to mention Hevron. There have been attacks on Churches, Synagogues and Jewish Community Centers in the U.S. And law enforcement have managed to stop some before they happen. I read a column that says ISIS now has a hit list of 15,000 people in the U.S. One entire church is on it. Some of the people have been notified by the FIB FBI that they are targets, many have not and the list is not publicly available. I guess what with covering for Hillary and all, it takes away from the time available to let people know they are targeted by ISIS. In the article it talks about an attack that was recently thwarted at a large church in Detroit.

But as I listened to the speaker, and thought about the images I could put with the reading I can’t help but wonder if those community leaders calling for defenseless victims shouldn’t do a brief review of history, at the least a brief review of Israeli history. Seems like there is an old saying. Something about “Those who ignore the past….”

So, without further ado, your movie….סרת

Failure

TZP recently received a link to a story of victim disarmers in Rhode Island.

Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict guns
This legislative session was no better than the previous two in terms of legislation passed to increase gun safety and reduce gun violence. But the tide seems to be turning in efforts to break the stranglehold the National Rifle Association has over our legislature: The Rhode Island Coalition against Gun Violence commissioned a poll this session that showed that a high percentage of Rhode Islanders agreed with the legislation it supported.

The initially horrifying aspect of that screed is that it appears in The Jewish Voice. I will never understand the concept of Jews clamoring for their own disarmament

Yet some do. Our correspondent noted when sending the link:

There’s currently a push behind the scenes at the RI State Capitol by Liberal Progressives in the RI Jewish community (JCC and JCRC) speaking out against gun violence and going after pro-Second Amendment politicians in RI. Certain Rabbis in some Jewish Congregations are even encouraging members to sign “common sense gun legislation,” and anti-Second Amendment pledges to send to their respective RI State Representatives. They’re trying to either force Reps. to change their stance on gun control or vote them out of office.

In the wake of Heller, McDonald, not to mention the Holocaust, fools Like David H. Leach whine that legislators have “failed” to violate an enumerated right of defense. What other rights are TJC and Leach hoping to see violated? Will we see headlines like these?

  • I. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict the Press
    Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict Jews
  • III. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict homeowners
  • IV. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict probable cause
  • V. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict due process
  • VI. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to endlessly delay trials
  • VII. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict trial by jury
  • VIII> Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to eliminate bail
  • IX.Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to restrict unenumerated rights
  • X. Despite increased public support, R.I. lawmakers fail to seize powers from the people

-sigh- Sadly, I’ve seen far too many headlines that pretty much do that. But I digress.

The goods news is that The Zelman Partisans aren’t the only Jews and fellow travelers who do get it. Our correspondent continues:

My friends (pro Second Amendment, pro Constitution Jews) and I will be organizing a “push back” beginning in September. Any help you could provide will be helpful and greatly appreciated.

TZP is preparing to support them in their effort. If you are in Rhode Island, or the region, please do your part locally. Contact Representatives and Senators, pro and con RKBA. Let the ones who protect our rights know you have their backs. Let the victiom disarming scum know you’re watching and will fight their disgusting efforts.

Don’t let the Bagel-brains destroy our rights.
