The World today holds it's breath as several nations, the most powerful ones are at the edge of War that could take us all to our greatest fear. EVERYONE on Earth is effected as the USA, Russia, China the UK and France have war ports all over Earth from Australia, all over Europe and the Middle East and also South America. Ukraine has been taken over by Russia, now the BIG one has raised it's head. The World truly stands on the brink, people must step back and talk. Anyone alive during the Cuban missile crisis will know this fear, this is now on two fronts. Pray, everyone, Man know... (more)
I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman. (Jeremiah 6:2 KJV)
But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. (Galatians 4:26 KJV
"THE MOTHER OF US ALL"
I am broken; Yet I love you with all my wounded heart.
I am singed, charred, and burned in the fires of our tribulation.
And yet my ashes, that were scattered, yearns for salvation.
My calling is persistent, excited, and impatient, I am impelled to desperate measures.
I am no longer that old wounded man, that transverse the back alley's of this cruel... (more)
...… Grandpa, with a sheet of paper of all the countries in the UN assembly, was adding the numbers. On November 29th 1947 everyone was glued to the radio.
“As soon as the last vote was counted, we all rushed out, flooding the streets, heading for the city center, singing David Melech Israel Chai Vekaiam (David the king of Israel alive and living). Shops and restaurants opened their doors and handed out free food and drinks. Circles inside circles of hora dances erupted, and I, too, was singing and dancing, carried along by the crowd, unable to choose my way. After two thousand... (more)
... Well, let me tell you; it’s from Article 22 of the Hamas Charter. Incidentally, I took the first passage not directly from the source but from a delightful site called Radio Islam.
It’s a difficult thing to be Jewish today, more difficult, perhaps, than at any time since the 1930s. Israel, the Jewish homeland, is surrounded by enemies. There are enemies even in places where Jewish communities have long been treated with understanding and respect. But England, my England, the home of tolerance and fair play, is at least safe. Or is it? The political left here, having lost an... (more)
The Israeli government has approved the construction of 3,000 new homes in the occupied West Bank. A famous Israeli Rabbi has issued new dressing guidelines for religious women, stating that not even girls as young as three should expose any part of their body or wear bright colors. New regulation undermining human-rights and democracy are commonly raised in the Israeli parliament these days. It is as though Israel is playing into the hands of the anti-Israeli campaigners, whoever they might be. And they love it, especially the government sponsored Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs).... (more)
Too much muttering is going on among many Indians about the Palestine Israel conflict. So many photos of dead children, burned houses, crying mothers and many more are circulating on facebook declaring their support for Palestine. Most of it insist or even plead to the Indian government to support Palestine and criticize Israel for its brutal actions. The episode that is taking place now is not at all one sided as most suggest, the Hamas are raining missiles over Israeli towns too but the reason for less or no causalities from the Israeli side is because of its counter missile systems. The... (more)
An Indian user on Blog Catalogue raised the question of sides in the recent Gaza conflict. Apparently there was some concern in his country over the ‘disproportionate’ Israeli reaction to attacks by Hamas. This is my response.
You conclude your well-argued, balanced and reasonable perspective with a clear statement of principle: "Let's support the innocent people in both Palestine and Israel who wish to live a normal life like all others." How could I possibly fail to agree with those sentiments; how could anyone fail to agree? The latest news is that a ceasefire has been concluded,... (more)
...Steve Bell, a softer-edged version of the sort of thing that used to appear in Der Stürmer. I can’t publish it here for obvious copyright reasons but it’s possible to view the image elsewhere online. Over a heading of Vote Likud, it depicts a threatening-looking Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, as a puppet master, with William Hague, the British Foreign Secretary, in one hand and Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister, in the other.
The Jew as the international puppet master; it’s a caricature that regularly features as a trope of modern anti-Semitism, from... (more)
I’ve been giving serious attention recently to the problem of modern anti-Semitism. In tracing the beast into the heart of the labyrinth I bought The New Anti-Semitism by Phyllis Chessler and Israel and the European Left: Between Solidarity and Delegitimization by Colin Shindler. I’ve yet to read these books, though skimming has given me a ‘feel’ for both. The first is a lively polemic, the second a little more scholarly and detached. Both touch on the new form of the chimera, its latest metamorphosis – that of left-wing Jew hatred.
Actually it’s not new at all. It’s much older... (more)
...our knowledge, for adding a new protocol to the Protocols.
Last week it wrote that America and England are using money from Jews (isn’t it nice that somebody is still lending in these credit-crunching times?) to spread homosexuality throughout the world. The article went on to blast Israel for promoting demonstrations of gay rights, specifically denouncing Tel Aviv as the gay paradise on earth. And do not be fooled by Conservative Judaism. That’s a movement guided by gay rabbis.
Hollywood, naturally enough, has played a part, depicting gay people in positive terms. But ... (more)
