|Or Trayvon Martin?|

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — After a year and a half of living as a hermit, George Zimmerman emerged from a Florida courthouse a free man, cleared of all charges in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin
His brother said the former neighborhood watch volunteer still was processing the reality that he wouldn’t serve prison time for the killing, which Mr. Zimmerman, 29, has maintained was an act of self-defense. Late Saturday night, a jury found him not guilty of second-degree murder and declined to convict him on a lesser charge of manslaughter.
However, with many critics angry over his acquittal, his freedom may be limited.
“He’s going to be looking over his shoulder the rest of his life,” Robert Zimmerman Jr., his brother, said during an interview on CNN. (cont.)

Whether Zimmerman was right or wrong, whether an innocent boy was killed, or a crime by a thug was prevented, whether justice was carried or not...
Wait for the riots, the spin, and the legislation.... "Justice" is being increasing taken into the hands of citizens. Whether the are just pawns used to carry out the plans of the "powers that be" to keep up the divide and conquer strategy, I do not know....
But, look! Here's some pre-riots, spin, and suggestion for legislation!

00:44 "Trayvon had been assassinated by a..." (assassinated??)
00:48 "wicked white beast, who today is talkin' about he's a Hispanic"
00:53 "We don't care 'cause his father's a Jew. He's a no good Jew."
01:11 "...put a $10,000 bounty reward on the head of George Zimmerman to force the United Snakes...government to do their job." (United Snakes! That was a good one! I have to give credit where credit is due.)
07:47 One of the demonstrators even starts to giggle, and cannot keep a straight face during this segment, and received some admonition from their leader.
Of these "New Black Panthers" make only one anti-Jewish remark, and it is not even clear if Zimmerman has any Jewish relatives. The anti-Jewish element of this four man demonstration hardly seems to be its focus.
Yet, what Jew in his or her right mind remain in any community where such individuals exist. It will always be "the Jews' fault."
As the reporter asked, "Did you just threaten George Zimmerman?" I ask, were these men arrested? Didn't they just commit a crime, knowing full-well that they were being filmed?
Do let me know if any investigation was ever initiated. But, I won't be holding my breath.
And this is only the next step in what is to come. Let us not forget the the riots over the Rodney King verdict DID, in fact, reach Beverly Hills. It was not at all isolated to those so-called "bad parts of town," as some would still have you believe.
For those of you unfamiliar with Los Angeles geography, to get from those "bad parts of town," to Beverly Hills, one must cross through Hancock Park, Miracle Mile, and Fairfax, predominantly Jewish neighborhoods. At least that is one route. Please remember that for next time, and there WILL be a next time.
OK. So, this is the part when you call me "nuts," "paranoid," "reactionary," "fanatical," or all of the above.
Nonetheless, I will continue to warn and admonish Jews in the U. S. and else, that those are not your lands. Those are not your battles. And, no matter how "bad" you think it is in Israel, you must understand that Israel is your home. Your battles are here. And by remaining in the U. S., you are letting "them" win, those who want to prevent the full development and prosperity of Israel as a the Jewish Homeland it is supposed to be.
During this time of year, and now, one day before Tisha b'Av, the anniversary of the destruction of the first and second Miqdash (Temple), among other tragedies, Jews ofter speak of Jewish Unity and Unconditional Love, and that includes distorted interpretations of what these really mean.
The Talmud Bavli is often quoted, Yoma 9b, providing the reasons the Batei Miqdash were destroyed, which included sinath hinam (baseless hatred). Yet, at the bottom of the amud is another reason presented, one which is hardly mentioned in this context, as frequently as the upper half.
In other words, if enough Jews had made aliyah (immigration to Israel) back then, then perhaps there would have been enough of a stronghold on the Land, as well as the military force, to have prevented the Roman conquest, and destruction.תלמוד בבלי יומא ט,ב
ריש לקיש הוי סחי בירדנא אתא רבה בר בר חנה יהב ליה ידא א"ל אלהא סנינא לכו דכתיב (שיר השירים ח:ט) "אם חומה היא נבנה עליה טירת כסף ואם דלת היא נצור עליה לוח ארז" אם עשיתם עצמכם כחומה ועליתם כולכם בימי עזרא נמשלתם ככסף שאין רקב שולט בו עכשיו שעליתם כדלתות נמשלתם כארז שהרקב שולט בו
Babylonian Talmud Yoma 9b
Resh Laqish was bathing in the Jordan [River] Rabba bar bar Hannah came, and shook his hand. He [Resh Laqish] said to him God detests you [Babylonians], as it is written (Song of Songs 8:9) "If she be a wall, we will build upon her a turret of silver; and if she be a door, we will enclose her with boards of cedar." If you had made yourselves [as strong] as a wall, and all went up in the days of Ezra, you would have been likened to silver, which cannot rot; but as you did not, you were likened to cedar [wood] doors, in which rot can take hold.
So, in addition to the importance of checking our hearts and watching our tongues, we must also ask ourselves what we are doing to protect our Homeland from further conquest and destruction, such as the absconding with parts of it for yet another Arab state, the assimilation of Jews into non-Jewish cultures, and the infiltration of avodah zarah.
Get on the plane.
