YNET: Obama Wishes 1,000 Rabbis Shana Tova
In annual pre-Rosh Hashana conference call with rabbis, US leader says conclusion of Syria crisis will show he can be counted on to curb Iran's nuclear program

|Shana Tova, damn it!|
One of the rabbis who took part in the annual conference call said Obama was asked how the US could be counted on to curb Iran's nuclear program if it does not respond to Syria's use of chemical weapons. Obama refused to tell the rabbis what he plans to do with regards to Syria, but said that the conclusion of the current crisis will prove he can be relied upon.
The American leader also spoke of the unbreakable bond between the US and Israel and the values shared by both countries, including the Jewish values of social justice. Obama also mentioned the Jews' participation in the struggle for civil rights led by Martin Luther King Jr. The US recently marked the 50th anniversary of King's "I have a dream" speech.
During the conference call Obama also mentioned his administration's efforts to promote health care reform and peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Gee. I'd sure like to get ahold of that guest list of rabbis! I'll give you 10 to one, that not too many of them are really rabbis, but rather "rabbis." And the ones who are rabbis, are so only marginally.
Why do I say that about "so only marginally?"
Well, because not only are rabbis supposed to learn Torah, and teach it, there are also supposed to live according to it,...NOT distort, ignore, cross out, or "creatively interpret" elements of the Torah which they do not happen to "resonate with" (ie. "like) or do not find to be "relevant to contemporary society." (whatever the heck that means!)
Now, what also caught my eye about this report was that according to these "rabbis," intervening in Syria, because its government used chemical weapons on its citizens is OK. But, when President Bush (not that I'm a fan of his either) intervened in Iraq, in part because its government used chemical weapons on its citizens, it was not OK. 'Nuff said on that.
Social justice? Well, by now, we should all know that within the Greater Jewish Community, the phrase "social justice" is code for "justice for anyone besides Jews, unless they agree with us."
And, of course, their version of "social justice" has little if anything to do with Torah justice,...unless you count the Torah distortions, which I do not.
Moving right along...
"Martin Luther King, Jr." (left) seemed to be more in touch with Am Yisra'el's claim to Eretz Yisra'el as its Divinely promised, eternal Homeland, than the so-called "rabbis" in
One of the categories of Erev Rav has no connection to Eretz Yisra'el (Kol HaTor), as RaSh"I cites: the Erev Rav wept when their were told that they would be traveling to Eretz Yisra'el, because the a no connection (inheritance) to it.
|"Sheeple" = sheep + people|
"Peace between Israel and the Palestinians" only means one thing to these people: "piece with the Palestinians."
May this New Year bring a mass awaking of Jews from their stupor, and get on the plane to Israel!
