"Knockout" a Jew: The Latest Craze

מוצש"ק פר' וישב תשע"ד

The increasingly popular, and sick, "Knockout" game, is seemingly executed most, if not all, of the time by African-Americans.

Must we be reminded of the traditional punishment of a goy who touches a Bas Yisra'el?
Of course, you would never know that from this report from Tablet Magazine.
Tablet Magazine: Elderly Jewish Woman Punched in ‘Knockout’ AttackStephanie Butnick, November 20, 2013 
A 78-year-old Jewish woman was punched in the face by a group of teenagers while walking in the Midwood section of Brooklyn this weekend, becoming the eighth victim of the so-called knockout attacks that have been occurring in New York City over the past few weeks. (cont.)
And now, it appears to be spreading from New York to Washington, DC, and elsewhere...
Potentially Fatal "Knockout" Game Targeting Strangers May Be SpreadingChris Lingebach, November 11, 2013 
WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – A terrifying new ‘game’ that’s already caused deaths in Syracuse, St. Louis and New Jersey is sweeping the nation, and it preys upon unsuspecting people walking the streets, anywhere. (cont.)
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
The first suggestion I heard to combat this phenomenon was to call out the Jewish Defense League [JDL].

Nope. It's aliyah time. The JDL has had its day, and did it job well, when it was needed. Now, all that is needed is aliyah. All efforts need to be focused on Israel. The U. S. was only our temporary home, and it has long since lost even that status.

Hello?!

As unrealistic it may sound, we simply do not have time to deprogram each other of the 2,000 years of galuth (exile). Jews were exiled from our only true homeland. We have become too comfortable in galuth, just like countless B'nei Yisra'el in Egypt. And, just like those in Egypt, as many as 80 percent, never left, and either died or disappeared, Jews still in the U. S. and elsewhere are at risk of the same fate.

Pride in overcoming the trials and tribulations of galuth, which to remind us all is supposed to be a punishment, need to be redirected into meeting the challenges of residing in the Jewish People's only true homeland, Eretz Yisra'el.

Soon enough, "they" will be crying that this is all a conspiracy to gain sympathy for the Jews, and is just a part of the Zionist agenda of racism.

Then, from the other end, "Jewish Leaders" will be telling everyone to keep calm, engage in dialogue, and tell African Americans how much we love them.

Same ol', co-dependent strategy, re-invented a bazilliion times, and still never works.

"Rabbis" will also be telling you to not to panic, to remain calm, that it is not every Jew's role to pick up and leave for Israel, and not to feel any guilt whatsoever, if you are one of those who "feel" that Israel is not for you. (After all, how will they continue to make their fabulous, American salaries, if everyone leaves their "congregations?")

Furthermore, "they" will be crying that this is a phenomenon affecting Americans cross the board. That may be true, as has been reported in Philadelphia. But, so what?

Maybe this is just another set-up by the powers that be, to convince Americans that they need to be protected (while they take away their privately owned means of protection...their firearms). But, again, so what?

Anyway you slice it, the U. S. is not a healthy place for Jews, neither physically nor spiritually. But, since you are all so deeply entrenched in galuth, physically and spiritually, you cannot or do not want to listen to anything which threatens your hashqafah (pre-existing perspective).

So, unfortunately, you are have to get proverbially kicked in the pants.

May The Almighty have mercy on you, and on all of us, and may you wake up soon, and realize that your place is with your people in your Land.

"The NYPD says the growing trend has occurred in predominately Jewish neighborhoods in Brooklyn."

See this report.

B"H - Well said, as long as people realize that the required response, aliyah, has to regard the Land of Israel, which is a Torah quantity and not the State of Israel, which is just another goyshe style "democratic" republic. Let's distinguish between Judaism and Zionism: The first worships Hashem, the second the "renaissance of the Jewish People", as Rav. Kook put it.
