Go Fly A Kite

I will start out with the amazing first. The United States embassy is now open in the Capital city of Jerusalem. To my knowledge, most other countries are allowed to designate what city will be their capital, only Israel has been denied that respect. President Trump put into actions in 2018 what congress put into law in 1995 with the Jerusalem embassy act. While Israelis were thrilled and celebrated Israeli Independence day according to the Gregorian calender on May 14th, the joy this year was heightened by the opening of the United States embassy.

The media, the Hamass terrorists and their minions, but I may be repeating myself there, were predictably apoplectic. The media covered the event as though the riots, which had been planned for a long time, were the result of the embassy moving. Nope, the embassy moving was just the cherry on top for Hamass. They pretty much do this every year in one form or another. They call the Nakba, or the “catastrophe” of the establishment of Israel. Some families have reunions, and some burn tires throw Molotov cocktails and get women and children to march in front of the men as human shields as they try to break through the security fence. The “peaceful protesters” set fire to the Kerem Shalom crossing, again. The Kerem Shalom crossing is where humanitarian aide gets in, as well as the gas pipelines which benefits the residents of Gaza.

The media branch of Hamass is complying by showing lots of split screen shots of the riots and Ivanka Trump at the opening. That way they can imply that it is President Trump moving the embassy that caused it, and that they don’t care about the poor suffering Gazans.

Social media is abuzz, there is a group out there using Twitter to offer $100,000 to blow up the U.S. Jerusalem embassy. I guess that doesn’t violate Twitter’s community standards. On Facebook there were posts plastered all over instructing protesters to bring guns, knives, infiltrate Israel en masse, invade nearby villages and kidnap Israelis. Seems despite receiving numerous complaints about this Facebook left it up till 40 hours after the event started.

Split Screen

 

 

 

 

 

The American legislative branch of Hamass showed their “support” of Israel and the Embassy move as well. They practiced the ever popular “BDS BS” and not one elected Demoncrat was in attendance.

And while the media would have you believe that those killed are just innocent “poor Falestinians” apparently Hamass is more truthful than the media, at least 50 out of the 60 killed were Hamass operatives. Chew on that for a bit, Hamass is the more truthful. It’s sad, Hamass instructs the civilians, preferably women and children to be at the front. The Hamass operatives are not to be at the front where the action is because they might be hurt/shot/dead.

One of the other popular new Gazan hobbies is flying fire kites with Molotov cocktails, and other incendiary devices attached. They’ve managed to burn hundreds of acres of farm lands, crops and forests. That along with their burning of tires just proves how much they really love that land. Much like Ferguson being burned to the ground. Some are artfully adorned with swastikas. How original. But the idea isn’t that original. The Japanese thought of it before. Calls for kite control Diane Feinstein? Oh, no because you’re busy blaming Israel as well. Hypocritical dingbat.

The U.N. is of course having a conniption fit. They are blaming Israel. Of course.

Peace Hamass Style

 

 

 

 

 

My solution?? Visit the nearby Kibbutzim and towns, hand out rifles and handguns like candy, every man, woman and older child gets one along with plenty of bullets. Make a big deal out of it, lots of media. I’m sure cnn and msnbc #FakeNews will wet their panties and cover it non-stop. But, lets see just how eager the Gazans are to break through then. Because their plan is kidnap soldiers and civilians, if you can’t kidnap them, kill them.

Dr. Mordechai Keder has a very insightful column on how Hamass has turned their citizens into live ammunition. Ever since Hamass took over Gaza, the lives of their citizens has gone downhill. The reason Hamass, at least partly, is a terrorist organization is because they use terrorism against their own citizens.

But for the progressives, Israel hating anti-Semites, the always wonderful Sultan Knish has a column on How not to get shot by a soldier. It’s really a must read.

The following is intended to serve as a useful guide to various activists, protesters and other completely non-violent folk who happen to be packing knives, guns, rocks and grenades. You will encounter various law enforcement and military personnel– this is how not to get shot by them.

First of all it’s important to remember that if you attack an armed man in a uniform, he will very probably shoot you.

Even given the most restrictive Rules of Engagement in the world which forbid him from opening fire unless he is outnumbered 600 to 1, and only when he has been given specific authorization by the UN to use deadly force– there will still come a time when he will open fire on you.

If you want a short movie version, which while good, isn’t as good as Sultan Knish’s column.

The modern media for the most part, is the enemy of good decent people everywhere. I would like to hope people are catching on, because no matter what #FakeNews tells you, Israel is a sovereign nation and it is under attack from an attempted invasion. What other sovereign nation has to not only defend itself from the invaders, but the rest of the world from objecting to it’s doing so? I wonder why that is. Some claim that moving the embassy will endanger the “peace” process. Does anyone see a “peace” partner on the horizon? Gaza IS the two state solution. There are no Jews in Gaza, it is Jew free. What there are, are rockets being shot into Israel, terror tunnels paid for with aide money, UNRWA schools that hide rockets and have school books with no state of Israel shown and teach hatred of Jews. That right there folks is how your “two state solution” looks.

President Trump, well done, well done indeed sir. After all these years, since 1995, the promise has been kept.

Political Theater and Popcorn

There is quite a lot going on in Israel right now. I’ve got a couple things to cover for you. One, you may or not have heard much about the Falestinian “Great Return March”.

Now this is all kinds of theater. The goal is to put a bunch of Falestinian civilians in front and they are suppose to break down the security fence and storm into Israel where several communities lie only moments away.

It’s a topic that has come up quite a bit on some of the news feeds I get. As I’ve pointed out about this great march of “Return”, it was the Arab leaders that told them to leave, not the Israelis. And so Hamass is doing one of their fav things, citizens as cannon fodder, or human shields. Grab some popcorn.

You will see some great performances. Probably good enough to rival Hollywood, that’s why it’s called Pallywood, where the ambulances take the rioters or terrorists to where ever they need/want to go. Haven’t heard of Pallywood? Well, first you need good make up artists

then a compelling story

It’s a MIRACLE! The feel good movie of the half minute.

If you are unfortunate enough to be in a place forcing you to watch cnn or mslsd or the like, you’ve no doubt heard about the innocent Falestinian “journalist” that was shot by the big bad Israelis.

Um, no. A report from The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center reveals….he was a TERRORIST! MAN, I did not see that plot twist coming! What’s more? Eighty percent of the Falestinians killed have been TERRORISTS! It’s like a Twilight Zone thing or something. Well, not everyone is fooled, Abu Mazen accused Hamass of “only selling illusions, trading in suffering and blood.” Huh, you’d think if Abu Mazen knew those rocket scientist at cnn or mslsd #fakenews would figure it out. It’s weird, it’s like they want to be fooled. I wonder if there is a “Invasion of the Talking Head Snatchers” movie or something? “Stepford Talking Heads”? But their rocket scientists, they’ll tell you how smart they are.

People think that most Israelis are armed and can defend themselves. Nope, biggest nope ever. You see a lot of guns on the street because of the military and those in the military but off duty. One article I recently read was talking about the strict gun control in Israel. How they are “trained”, can’t buy some of the more “deadly” guns available at Walmart, can only buy so much ammo per year. Bet that cuts into practice for proficiency. You have to show a “need” to have a gun. Luckily for Israel the illusion exists there could be a gun under every blade of grass. And perhaps when Moshe Feiglin is Prime Minister it will be. But I have to wonder, if those pieceful Falestinians knew they were going to be met by a bunch of armed pissed off Kibbutzniks and citizens shouldering some of those “more deadly weapons in Walmart” just how eager they would be to break that security fence even if they did overrun and evade the IDF.

But back to speaking of rocket scientists.

Perhaps you’ve heard of a few missiles floating around? Israel hits 50 Iranian targets in Syria after Al Qods fires 20 missiles at IDF Golan positions

And Iran is a problem, we all knew it. Well, almost all of us knew it.

Except Ganja for brains barry.

And then, The Mossad did their “thing”. The got out a lot of documents, about 11,000 of them, from Tehran on Project Ahmed, the Iranian nuclear program which Bibi revealed to the world in a broadcast saying basically, Iran lied.

WOWZA, I would think that would be shocking! But, to the world “leaders” naw, nothing to see here folks, move along. EU Foreign Policy Chief Frederica Mogherini said so, she said Iran complied. Frederica and barry really need to quit the hearty partying and listen to their opponents. Except barry sent them lots and lots of money, so maybe they aren’t opponents. Because Iran admitted they lied as well as forbidding the inspection of certain areas.

The article referred to comments made by Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran’s Atomic Agency, who said during an interview with IRINN TV in Iran on August 22 that his country can return to its pre-deal enrichment level in only five days, indicating Iran has breached the JCPOA and stockpiled prohibited nuclear components.

Earlier this month, the Middle East Media Research Institute published a full translation of Salehi’s comments, showing that the situation is worse than originally estimated by experts likeas former International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors David Albright and Olli Heinonen.

This is the tone in which cnn #FakeNews covered the revelations,

Russia stood by the current deal, rejecting any push to update or change the JCPOA. France, Germany, and the United Kingdom said Netanyahu’s presentation was exactly a case for keeping the deal in place, because it provided for inspection and monitoring of Iran’s nuclear program and, if needed, sanctions.

And what about one of the central accusations of Netanyahu’s presentation, that Iran lied? It was a talking point he hit over and over, making for easy sound bites and compelling television.

Well, that didn’t surprise anyone either.

“Everybody knew that they lied. There’s nothing new about that,” Lewis said flatly.

“The Iranians had a nuclear weapons program. We knew this,” agreed Fitzpatrick.

Lewis added: “We already knew the outlines of the [Iranian nuclear] program in great detail, and all this did was color it in, sometimes in pornographic detail.”

Orwellian. They lied, so we need the agreement so they won’t lie. Huh, wow. Last year even Germany knew. German Security Officials Reveal Iran Still Working to Become Nuclear Power. Seems most of the world “leaders” know they are being lied to and a fine with it. They are annoyed President Trump is pulling out of it, and reinstating sanctions meaning no more money out of barry’s “stash”. Moshe Feiglin of Zehut has a pretty brutal assessment of it. But he is right, The Israelis have to decide if they want to win.

Uninstalling obama

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The traitor John Kerry, the #KetchupHeiress is so desperate to salvage his and barry’s legacy he is going behind everyone’s back and engaging in shadow diplomacy. Why isn’t cnn and msnbc #FakeNews covering this like they did Michael Flynn?

Oh goodie, John Kerry is here, we don’t need to worry.

Totally NOT a Bomb

 

 

 

 

 

I read a magazine article that pointed out the hypocrisy of Demoncrats demanding more gun control to keep their kids safe, while pushing for the Iranian nuclear deal which endangered Israeli children. Well, Demoncrats are good at that sort of hypocrisy.

But no worries, the UN will be there to keep things calm. U.N. To World: You Have No Human Right to Self-Defense. Thwarted by the demise of its global gun ban treaty, the United Nations declares the human right of self-defense null and void

Uh oh.

The “Peace keepers” flee

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oy Ve Vay.

I would say the Mossad uncovered a lot more than just the proof that the Iranians were lying about their nuclear program. I would say they uncovered the total apathy that the European leaders have to the one Jewish state being annihilated. Do you wonder how the Mossad pulled that one off?

Anything to declare?

Struggles

This last week was Parshat Vayishlach, and it talks about Yaakov and Esav’s reunion when Yaakov returns from his devious Uncle Levan, who had deceived him in much the same way he had deceived his father Yitzach. He has sent his family and herds across the Jabbok, and he remained alone, waiting for daylight when he would see the brother who had sworn to kill him. The one heading his way with 400 men.

Bereshit 32: 22-32

22 The same night he arose and took his two wives, his two female servants, and his eleven children, 1 and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. 23 He took them and sent them across the stream, and everything else that he had. 24 And Jacob was left alone. And a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day. 25 When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob’s hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. 26 Then he said, “Let me go, for the day has broken.” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” 27 And he said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Jacob.” 28 Then he said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, 1 for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed.” 29 Then Jacob asked him, “Please tell me your name.” But he said, “Why is it that you ask my name?” And there he blessed him. 30 So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, 1 saying, “For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life has been delivered.” 31 The sun rose upon him as he passed Penuel, limping because of his hip. 32 Therefore to this day the people of Israel do not eat the sinew of the thigh that is on the hip socket, because he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip on the sinew of the thigh.

One of the Rabbi’s commentary I read this week talked about the difference in the style of Mozart and Beethoven. He felt that for Mozart, the music simply flowed from him, light and easy. For Beethoven, he struggled to get it just the way he wanted it, writing and re-writing it, the creativity for him was a struggle. He felt Yaakov, who later became Israel, had the same kind of struggles. In fact Rabbi Sacks points out in all of Tanakh/ First Testament, none of the people were perfect, they all had their struggles.

If you want to watch a little teaching on the Parsha, here is one from Rabbi Chaim.

Struggles was already on my mind this week, I’ve recently had the chance to see a independently produced movie. I think that’s what they are called. I don’t see many movies, cause there are not many I am willing to give money to see. The last one was a 1977 movie on Operation Thunderbolt.

This one was called “Big Sonia”. And it is about an amazing 91 year old lady from Poland who is a Holocaust survivor. Big Sonia stands a whopping 4’11” tall. The film talks very little about how she came to be in the concentration camps, she was in more than one, and she endured death marches. It does say the nazis used dogs to find her and her Mother hiding in the attic of their home, as they had found others. They were hidden under the floor. When the movie needs to show something from the Holocaust, it is mostly shown in crude, meaning not detailed, animation. The nazis and dogs finding them is one of those types of scene. Another is when they are separated after they’ve been at the death camp for a while. Her Mother had a red scarf, and in the graphic, I can’t really call it a cartoon, it shows her Mother handing it off to her. This is a clip of Sonia.

Sonia runs a tailor shop that she took over from her husband after he passed away. Her mission, I would say, is she with the help of her daughter visit school, prisons, and talk to groups about the Holocaust. About living with love and acceptance so that these things can never happen again. It has had a profound affect on students, and some of the prisoners were in the film crying and talking to Leah, one of the filmmakers about how hearing Sonia’s story affected them. It was disconcerting to me that some of these prisoners seemed unaware of the Holocaust, at all. But I know another Holocaust survivor, she was Austrian who had tried to tell her story to some people at a holiday get together. Some of them did not believe her. She told me she would never speak of it again. I understand, to have gone through that, then tell it, and not be believed? But to see this tiny little woman, who had survived more and harder things than the prisoners, or school children had and how she chose to respond to them? Amazing woman. I would also mention Sonia has a sister that did survive the war. She is currently living in Israel. She spent the war not in a concentration camp, but in the forest, with the Partisans, fighting. I don’t know how that happened, it doesn’t say in the film, but boy do I wish Leah would do that story! Sonia has faced many many struggles, her most recent one was when the shopping mall where the tailor shop was located served her an eviction notice. I will just say that there are Angels that walk among us today, and while we may not know the name of the one that wrestled with Yaakov, the one in the movie is Vernon and leave it at that. This movie is being seen all across the US, actually world wide. I’m free on the 16th, I think I’d like to see it again. That will necessitate me being in Jerusalem on the 16th. Hmm.

I was thinking about this column, and struggles. We all face them in our daily lives, from different directions. Some can be family, professional, monetary, personal, health, and just “stuff we have to do” be it cutting down trees, clearing fence row or making sure one kid gets to the doctor and another to piano lessons and you need to be at work on time, and pay for it all. But as I was thinking about struggles and how Yaakov faced his, and while it seems most of his life he faced a variety of struggles, he tried, he didn’t just give up. He may have been afraid and distressed, but he kept going forward and he struggled with the Angel and won. Sonia has certainly had her struggles, to survive and cope, she continues to try to use her experience to help others.

And then I had a conversation with a friend of the book of faces tonight. We’ll call him Chris. Chris is talking about his son that I’m going to call Stuart. Stuart is a Ordnance Disposal Tech in the military. Chris had said a little about some of the scares he has had due to Stuart’s occupation. We got started talking about this because of a particular song “More than a name on a wall” by the Statler Brothers.

Chris: I try to never miss an opportunity to tell him how proud I am of him. That song tears me up probably as much as it does you. But I know that if my son should go, he’ll be escorted to Valhalla by his fellows after accomplishing far more with his life than I ever have.

Me: WE each have a part to play in this drama called life Chris. HIS part is NOT your part. Your part is not mine. We must each fulfill our parts as best we can with who we are at this time, in this place.

And that’s when it gelled for me. I am so far from perfect, and some struggles will probably be lifelong, and some I may win, some I may lose. But the ones that G-d brings to me, those I must continue to try. We all have things that matter to us, to U.S. our freedom, our country, our way of life, and our families.

And each of us has a role we can play in that. Some who would never want to write on a Blog can pick up the pen and write a letter to the editor, they can talk to a co-worker who spouts Gabby Giffords latest uniformed, illogical or stupid idea. Some can take Grandchildren or nieces and nephews out to learn to shoot. Or, they can set their nephew up with lessons to learn to shoot from a good instructor. So I’ve heard. You can support Second Amendment groups, join local grassroots Second Amendment groups, go to rallies. You can know our country’s history, warts and all, and when people try to take it from us by lying, know they are lying and speak out, write a letter, make sure what your child or grandchild is learning in school isn’t the Common Core Crap, and if it is either talk to the school or at least talk to your child and make sure they know the truth. Old school books might make dandy gifts. To lose who were are and where we came from is something that is hard to reclaim. Someone has to keep the light burning.

There is a teaching in the end of the video Parsha about Yaakov going back for some small vessels. What? He hadn’t had enough struggle already? He goes back for some Tupperware? There is a bit more to it than this, but my point is, in that in the Tupperware, was oil.

Sonia’s struggles bring forth understanding and knowledge, Yaakov’s struggle brought forth the nation of Israel, and a small container of oil.

Last week was November 29th, there was an epic struggle that took place on November 29th, 1947  These are in English.

Behind the scenes stories

And today, today. President Trump announced that the United States recognizes Jerusalem is the Capitol of Israel, and the United States will be moving their Embassy to Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act was written in 1995, at last, finally. I admit, watching those old film clips today, and then President Trump is a very emotional experience.

And so, what will our struggles bring forth?
