Ahh, Pesach! The holiday that commemorates the ending years of slavery in Egypt.
How many years in slavery? I’ll refer you to Chabad for that explanation.
But after years of living in a country where your life was valued as cheap, the children left. Time served, onto a new life in your homeland.
When you are at the Pesach Seder it is supposed to be as though you were there, on that night. It’s part of your history, part of your life story. Then Pharaoh decided good help is hard to come by, and he is going to chase the Hebrews down and dispatch them. Either back to work or _____. You know, one might have thought the year or so of plagues would have given him a clue. But some are just so blinded by hate they are will to sacrifice their own people to achieve their goals of killing Jews.
And this year in Israel, it seems somethings may not really change all that much. I think obama’s and soros’s community organizing friends had buddies within Hamass. I guess Hamass has been looking at all the left-wing “marches” that have been taking place in America with envy. Because they decided to have their very own! Yep, a “million man Gazan march” for the “right of return”. Mind you, Gaza is Jew free, there are no Jews in Gaza, not since 2005 when the IDF pulled Jews from their homes in Gaza and shipped them out in compliance with the final phase of the Oslo accords signed in 1994. So basically Gaza is your two state solution. Already there done deal. But, it’s not enough. You can read a nice summary of the history here.
So, the million muslim man march. Except it wasn’t. It was a photo-op made for a gullible world. And the media bought it hook, line and sinker.
According to the IDF, they were short a few people, the IDF estimates it at about 30,000. But, it’s not for lack of “recruitment” on the part of hamass. A seven-year-old girl was sent by Hamas into Israel, to face the IDF forces stationed along the border fence with Gaza.
Hamass had been warned not to try to breech the fence. Hamass said the only solution is “The Right of Return” and the plan was to simply swamp the border fence and the IDF stationed there with a mass of people. Putting women and children first, of course. Being the cowards they are.
But I think Paula Stern has a better idea. Change the IDF Rules of Engagement
She points out what is at stake,
The leadership of Gaza wants them to overwhelm our soldiers in sheer numbers with the goal of getting as many of those “men” across the border. Armed with whatever they can bring – guns, knives, explosives, axes, they have one order only. Should any of these attackers manage to circumvent our border, they have instructions to kill. Anything. Whatever. Have a nice time.
And what should be the response? Now, at once.
And the moment, that individual touches the fence – that’s it, really – just TOUCHES the fence, our forces have orders to shoot to kill. No, we will not yell out “STOP!” in Arabic and English and Hebrew. We will not fire in the air. Forget firing at their legs. Shoot to kill.
And she is correct, Hamass are armed. There was a firebomb stash found along the Gazan border. As well as other weapons.
This was a peaceful march just like the ones America saw that attempted to burn down cities.
The Falestinian Authority has admitted they are a terrorist organization, and Hamass is even worse.
It’s difficult to say how many Gazans have been sent to their death by Hamass to achieve the desired result for the media and the U.N. Partly because of the efforts of Pallywood that the media always falls for. But one source says 25, I think it’s more by now. Pallywood? You don’t know? Well, here is a photo in fine Pallywood style and a video. Two different incidents. Both are from Israellycool and Dave points out problems with both. Things that one would have thought the photographers from the mainstream media would have had enough intellectual curiosity to look further, but I guess not.
The U.N. security council of course, felt compelled to hold a meeting over the sovereign nation of Israel being invaded by a terrorist organization. Naw, just kidding, in the spirit of the UN, they scheduled the meeting for the first night of Pesach.
“The State of Kuwait, with full knowledge that our Permanent Mission, Israel, and Jews everywhere were observing the first night of Passover, hijacked the consultations, forced an open session and invited the Palestinian delegation to present remarks that they had been advised to prepare well in advance. Israel was not given the same advance notice and was barred from taking part in the deliberations due to the observance of our religious holiday,” wrote Ambassador Danon.
The ever impartial UN was all set to release a statement on the riots, which the U.S. blocked, thankfully, as it seems all the statement was concerned about was that Hamass sent people to be killed and the IDF was forced to do so. Are they worried about the invasion? Meh, not so much.
But the UN plays a part in the riots in and of itself. They too want and encourage them through UNRWA. In fact, UNRWA officials have said that the “Right of Return” will be achieved by force.
You know who is chiming in loudly about this? Erdogan of Turkey. Erdogan Calls Israel A “Terrorist State” After “Inhumane Attack” In Gaza. Yep, he has had a plenty to say about this.
Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan accused Israel of being a “terrorist state and occupier,” and its army of “inhuman cruelty” in its crackdown on Palestinian protesters.
“Oppressor Israel and its army are only courageous against the oppressed in Gaza, Jerusalem, they are cowards when it comes to facing others,” Erdogan said at a ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) congress in the southern province of Adana on April 1, addressing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu according to Turkey’s Hurriyet.
Oh yes, the man who is attacking the Kurds who are fighting ISIS has a plenty to say about the Gaza riots.
And I suppose if a people would know about genocides, it would be the Turks. The Armenian Genocide for example. This is what that genocide looked like. And the shameful commemoration of that event by the muslim brotherhood in Washington DC. Muslim Brotherhood To Commemorate Genocidal Jihad At DC’s National Cathedral This was in 2014, during obama’s reign, and he never would call it genocide either.
Daniel Pipes wrote Why Palestinians Need an Israel Victory
I shall propose an entirely different approach to resolve the conflict, a reversion to the strategy of deterrence and victory associated with Zionism’s great strategist, Vladimir Jabotinsky (1880-1940): Israel should aim not to please its enemies but to defeat them. Counterintuitively, I shall show why Palestinians need precisely such an Israel Victory to slough off their current oppression, extremism, and violence, and to become a successful people.
The whole column is very good.
But you can’t imagine a sovereign nation under threat of invasion by a large group of people.
And like the “peaceful” Gazans, they have their demands.
“We demand of the Mexico and the United States: that they respect our rights as refugees and our right to dignified work to be able to support our families,” the statements reads.
The second demand is “that they open the borders to us because we are as much citizens as the people of the countries where we are and/or travel.”
Um, no. But we will soon be facing a similar situation, and the world will judge us as harshly.
But today, Israel is a free, sovereign nation that came from 12 tribes that went into Egypt and came out as that one nation, as one people that received the Torah from Moshe who received it from G-d
Moses ascended Mount Sinai, and G‑d spoke to him the following words (Exodus 19:3-6): “So shall you say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel. You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and [how] I bore you on eagles’ wings, and I brought you to Me. And now, if you obey Me and keep My covenant, you shall be to Me a treasure out of all peoples, for Mine is the entire earth. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of princes and a holy nation.”
We are one.
So I have two songs for you this Pesach season. This one I sing almost every day, even though poorly, because I love it, and well, really it applies. It has subtitles.
