A "Religious" Woman Runs for Mayor of Beit Shemesh

כ"ד לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

Times Of Israel: In fight for the soul of a divided city, a religious woman steps into the ring

Debra Kamin, July 31, 2013

Aliza Bloch, a mother-of-four and a former school principal, is running for mayor of Beit Shemesh. Only this political novice, her supporters say, can save it from escalating ultra-Orthodox intolerance.
Esser Agaroth (2¢) 

Why is her neckline so low?

Why are her elbows not covered?

Why is she wearing a red dress? How short is it, I wonder?

Why doesn't she cover her hair properly (ie. according to halakhah)?

And why is she running for mayor?

Oh, I get it. She's religious as in  a "Whateva! I do what I want!" sort of way.

And, in my experience phrases like, escalating ultra-Orthodox intolerance" translate very nice into "justified Haredi-bashing.

Some People Are Just Idiots, Or Are They?

כ"ד לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

I saw this post on Life In Israel, one of the few blogs I read daily:
Some people are just idiots

Some people are just idiots.

Some people just were not raised right....

...The second picture above is of a group of teens (some news sites say families, but I only teens in the picture), also idiots - even bigger idiots than most teenagers - swimming in the memorial established in memory of the 73 victims of the tragic helicopter crash in the village of She'ar Yashuv 16 years ago. The plaques in the water bear the names of the victims.

According to reports, passers-by told the swimmers that the place is a memorial and they should be sensitive to the emotions of the families of the victims and stop swimming there, to which the one of the swimmers responded that they know what the place is and they have no problem swimming. The proper memorial is to light candles and say tehillim, which is what we do, while water does nothing to lift up the neshama of the dead and there is nothing holy about the site. He then told the kids to continue swimming, saying "I pay taxes just like you and will do what I want here"....  (cont.)
Esser Agaroth (2¢)
I'm on the fence, especially if the teen or older individual didn't just say he didn't care, but actually bothered to think up an excuse.

And the one they came up with (highlighted above) is compelling. It seems to me that some people's Western/assimilationist "feelings" are getting in the way of our thinking and our actions.

Just because the "almighty" State decides to make a creative memorial, doesn't make it a Jewish memorial.

I'm surprised someone didn't say that they were honoring the dead by swimming there, by making full use of their "memorial," demonstrating that life goes on.

I think I'll remember that one, if I ever decide to swim in a memorial.

As my friend Ariel Ben-Yochanan at The Torah Revolution might say, "There is 'Jewish' and there is 'Not Jewish.'"

I'll ask him what he thinks.

Israelis Complicit In Murder

כ"ד לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

Here they are...

Look at their faces. Look into their eyes. Remember their names. These are the "Jews" who have sentenced a Jew, or Jews, to death,...sometime in the future. These deaths could easily have been prevented, simply by implementing the Torah commanded death penalty for these evil bastards. The inevitable future murders of Jews could even be prevented by taking the wimpy way out, by keeping his or her murderer locked up behind bars for life.

And don't think that Shalom (what an ironic name) and Livnat are off the hook for abstaining, either!

Member of the Netanyahu government, Minister Naftali Bennett suggested the following:

Bennett's "Solution"
(Photo Credit: Itzik Cohen)
Bennett: "If terrorists are caught, one simply needs to kill them."

Amidror: "Listen, this isn't legal."

Bennett: "I have already killed lot of Arabs in my life, and there has never been a problem with this."
I imagine that the Jewish Home Party cabinet ministers were allowed to vote against the proposal, and adamantly so, as the result of some sort of deal, which Netanyahu and Lapid were willing to live with. They know all too well Bennett needs to be able to tell his supporters that he voted against the measure, in order to keep him and his party in the K'nesseth. And, Netanyahu and Lapid need Bennett,...for now.

Or maybe, it was much simpler than that. Maybe the Jewish Home Party sold out for just 5,000 new homes in Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria).

"sheeple" = sheep + people
Many have suggested that the release of these prisoners would simply provide an opportunity for the Israeli government to send out various agents to bump them off, legally or not so legally.

Been there done that. This is not the first time Yishma'eli (Arab) murderers have been released, and if we, the Jewish People, just stand idly by, believing that we are just helpless sheeple, then it will not be the last, and we will surely end up being led to slaughter.

A more comparable, yet sarcastic, suggestion was that Israel needed to release a serial rapist from prison,...for the sake of the security of Israeli women.

Think about it.

I hate to think who will be slaughtered by one of these released murderers this time.

So, what creative excuses will these future conspirators come up with, when Jews start getting murdered,...this time?

Let me guess. "The devil made me do it."

Esser Agaroth on the Maccabiah Games

כ"ג לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

Ironic, is it not, that the Maccabiah Games, an imitation of the Greek Olympics, are named for the Maccabim, who fought off the Greeks, their Jewish, Greek-wannabes, and their assimilation oriented influences?

And, here we are, holding our own version of the Hellenist Olympics, because they "used to laugh and call us names," and never allowed us to "join in any [of their] reindeer games." 

Our bright, red noses lit up the sky with Nobel Prizes, and medical and high tech innovations. But these acknowledgements from the goyim were not good enough.

The lack of a bit of skin got in the way for most of us. Some of us found ways to "cover up" enough to participate.

Mark Spitz, then and now.
Gal Fridman, Athens, 2004
I remember the excitement as a kid, when Mark Spitz won an unprecedented seven gold medals in Olympic swimming. I had been living in Israel for some time already when Gal Fridman won the gold medal in windsurfing, Israel's first gold medal ever.

An acquaintance of mine, Effie Kivelevitch, a "nice Jewish boy," and and former yeshiva student from New York, became Mr. Israel 2009 for his weight class in bodybuilding. What could be more Greco-Roman body conscious than body building?? But, how could his fellow America Jews not cheer and whoop-whoop in excitement??!! Furthermore, Kivelevitch's hard work reinforces the very important important message that Jews do not have to remain locked into a wimpy, neurotic, and nebachy stereotype. We can once again become physically strong, as well as scholarly, like the Jews of old.

There have been other athletes who had to face the challenge of being both Jewish and an athlete head on.

Who does NOT recall his father or grandfather telling him the story of how Los Angeles Dodgers' Sandy Koufax refused to pitch on Yom Kippur? That might not impress too many religious Jews now. But, in during the assimilation of the 1960's, his action made a significant impression for its time. This video about this story is well worth its 2 minutes length.

The teenaged son of friends of mine once told me about Tamir Goodman.

Tamir Goodman (Wikipedia) was dubbed by Sports Illustrated magazine as the "Jewish Jordan", is an American-born Israeli retired Orthodox Jewish basketball player.

Goodman received a scholarship to the University of Maryland, which had one of the top-ranked basketball teams in the country. He said that the news of his plans to go to Maryland attracted over 700 media requests that week. The team's schedule of practices and games meant having to play on Friday nights and Saturdays, against the rules of Orthodox Judaism, so he declined Maryland's offer.
Goodman then accepted a scholarship from nearby Towson University....He eventually fulfilled his dream by signing with the Maccabi Tel-Aviv professional basketball team.

Just last winter, 18-year-old Akiva Finkelstein from Beth-El chose to withdraw from an international boxing tournament in Armenia, rather than violating Shabbath, by being weighed on an electric scale.

Ofir Kriaf
Last month, I saw a short video bio of Beitar Yerushalayim's star midfielder Ofir Kriaf. It included a spot of him in tallith and tefillin, praying at the Kothel (Western Wall), and talking about the importance of his family. Doesn't sound like a big deal in Jerusalem, in this day and age? It's done all the time, and may have been done for publicity? I don't think so, not in the least. And, don't forget. Fans young and old, pay attention to these things. It makes an impression on them, especially the highly impassioned, and sometimes disenfranchised, fans of the Beitar Yerushalayim team. At the tender age of 22, when Kriaf's career is just taking off (בע"ה), he is truly not just a role model, but a Jewish role model.

Just the other day, I heard that the members of the Israeli women's lacrosse would rather give up their chances at winning the gold medal in their tournament in England, than play on Shabbath. (Tip: Jew In The City)

Sports have provided us with a history of events to rally around those of us who are "like us," to have role models, and to feel better about who we are.

But, are athletics an authentically Jewish conduit for achieving collective self-esteem?

I certainly do not agree with those rabbis who mock athletics in their entirety. Rather, I believe that there are appropriate times situations for athletics.

The examples set by all of the athletes above are commendable, even Qedushei HaShem to an extent.

And in this day and age, of taking pride in assimilation, and of being more goyshe than the goyim, I am willing to accept almost anything which has the power to raise the confidence and self-image of Jews. Even the often disenfranchised Beitar Yerushalayim soccer team fans receive more in the way of a boost to their Jewish identities from being a fan and member of a proud Jewish group, then they would ever receive from the Israeli public education system. Sad and pathetic, but true.

What do Jewish sources say about athletic prowess?

It seems to me that it has always been mentioned and praised in the context of war, and in the defeat of our enemies.

So, let us continue to route for our Jewish sports stars, and follow those examples which are positive. But let us also keep athletics in perspective, and ask ourselves, what should the final goal of building muscle, strength, endurance, and skill really be?

I guarantee you that it not to be just like the goyim, with our own athletics teams, and our own athletic competitions.

Rather, it is to prepare ourselves physically and mentally to do what will eventually need to be done. Defending fellow Jews from attacks, hiking in the Shomron, shopping in Downtown Jerusalem, or just trying to live normal lives in South Tel-Aviv, are only a few of today's necessities for such abilities.

Who knows how else they will come in handy, this fall, next year, or in five years.

Best be prepared.

Bye, Bye, Galilee!

Arutz 7: Pres. Peres Calls for 100,000 Yesha Jews to Migrate to the Negev 
President Shimon Peres called on Jews from Judea and Samaria last week to send a cohort with their strength and skills to settle the Negev.

Chana Ya'ar July 28, 2013

President Shimon Peres called on Jews from Judea and Samaria last week to send a cohort with their strength and skills to settle the Negev.

Addressing an event to mark the 70th anniversary of Kibbutz Revivim – located deep in the Negev – Peres noted that at present, there are only 6,500 residents in the Ramat Hanegev region.

Even if half the Jews living in Judea and Samaria (Yehuda and Shomron) lived in the Negev, Peres said, the regions would look different.

“There would be another 100,000 people here,” Peres said. The president apparently had not considered the fact that nearly 400,000 Jews now live in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria....

Esser Agaroth (2¢)
Disinformation? Incompetent staff? Senility? All of the above?

I, myself, am not sure. However, I am willing to put my money on motivations of evil

The title is a shameless rip-off from Barry Chamish's book Bye, Bye, Gaza, in which he recounts the inevitable Gaza giveaway, which so many Jews refused to see it coming.

Likewise, I will suggest that the Israeli Government, or at least one of those associated with it, has been throwing around the possibility of giving up on the Gallil (Galilee). Of course, it is only speculation, but it comes from connected a rather long string of dots.

Many of you probably thought that I was going to predict the government's attempts to throw yet more Jews under the bus, or rather the tank. But, that will have to wait until next time.

When Peres was Minister in charge of Development on the Galil and the Negev, we heard about these two areas, and the importance of "settling" them ALL of the time. They were considered the perfect "alternatives" to the settlement of Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria). Farmers could farm, goatherds could goatherd, and suburbanites could suburbanite.

Yet, we all new this was part of the eventual plan to rid Yehudah and Shomron of its Jews. Some of these Jews would see the proverbial writing on the wall, and succumb to the lousy quality of enticement to get out while they could.

But, have you noticed that Peres has stopped talking about the Galil?

In fact, all of the buzz about withdrawing from Yehudah and Shomron, handing pieces of the Negev over as "compensation," and making Jerusalem an "international zone" points to one and only one thing: 

The United Nothings 1947 Partition Plan
Talk of [increased] autonomy for the Bedouins in the south, concern over the "Arab Triangle" and the possibility of putting that up for "exchange" as well, and the fire sale of Jerusalem to the Vatican, to the Russian Orthodox Church, and to others also fit right in. 

One of trait of the Erev Rav is the lack of connection to the Land. Another, is the bringing together of Esau (the West) and Yishma'el (Arabs/Muslims).

Torah stands in their way.

So, if the shoe fits,... 

I guess this is your cue to start screaming "Conspiracy Theory!" Be my guest. When you calm down, do the research and connect the dots yourself.

Silly Christians! Tzitzis Are For Jews!

כ"א לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

Look what was sent to me!

Screen Shot from
You are only REQUIRED to follow 7 Misswoth (Torah Commandments), those incumbent on B'nei No'ah, the descendants of No'ah.
1. Do not practice Avodah Zarah (foreign worship).

2. Do not murder.

3. Do not steal.

4. Do not commit prohibited sexual acts.

5. Do not commit blasphemy.

6. Do not eat the flesh, taken from an animal while it is still alive.

7. Set up and maintain courts of law.

When you get those right, then worry about taking more on.

Oh yeah, and number 1 above includes refraining from worshiping false man-gods, false messiahs, or whatever you're calling Jeezer these days, in order to make him more palatable to Jews.

The Trix Rabbit
And another thing, if you're going to "take on misswoth," attempt to infiltrate Jewish communities for your evil purpose of stealing our souls, or in the case of those of you "volunteering" in Israel, stealing our land, could you at least do your homework, and do them correctly?

Your fake tzitzis are a dead giveaway just like this Christian's.

But, I'm not worried, I have no doubt that as our final conflicts involving you, Yishma'el (Arabs), and others come closer to "final resolution," your sneakiness will improve.

And, may The Almighty strike you down for it!

Silly Christians! Tzitzis are for Jews!

What's Another 104 Arab Murderers in the Neighborhood?

 כ"ב לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

JPost: Cabinet approves referendum bill ahead of vote on prisoners release
Herb Keinon, JPost Staff, July 28, 2013
Referendum bill does not include Judea and Samaria; PM scrambles to secure support for releasing 104 Palestinian prisoners as gesture of goodwill; adds vote on Israeli Arab prisoners will be brought to a separate vote. 

PM Netanyahu
The cabinet on Sunday approved the draft of a bill mandating a national referendum if an accord with the Palestinians is reached that necessitates withdrawals from part of Jerusalem or land swaps. The bill will be brought to the Knesset for a vote on Wednesday.

"Any agreement, if it is achieved in negotiations, will be brought as a referendum. It is important that every citizen will directly vote on fateful decisions like these that determine the future of the state," Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said during the meeting. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Murderers of Jewish children, murderers of Jewish soldiers, murders of rabbis, and so on, and so on.

Rabbi Me'ir Kahane hy"d, who was demonized for teaching Torah and authentic halakhah (Jewish Law) and whow was killed by none other that...and Arab over 20 years ago, warned us. But, those in the Israeli government during his time, and after his time, including "Torah-observant" Jews, refused to listen.  Instead, they preferred to keep their seats int he government safe, maintain the trickle of love and friendship begged, borrowed, and whored after, from the goyim, rather than taking the necessary and "unpopular" actions to protect Jewish lives.

And now, according to the text of the Prime Minister's justification speech to Israeli citizens, he talks about taking unpopular actions.

Mr. Netanyahu, it's a little too late for taking unpopular actions. Unpopular actions should have been taken ages ago. Then we wouldn't be in the mess we are now, accelerating on the path of self-destruction.

I am, of course, talking about Rabbi Kahane's unpopular [Torah-based] actions, not yours.

The JPost report above continues with the limitations on the Prime Minister's concept of a "democratic," or in Israel's case, deMOCKratic, referendum.voters will not actually be able to decide on if or what parts of Israel get carved up and thrown to our hostile, Yishma'eli enemies whose goal is our eventual annihilation.

So, what is the referendum for? Prime Minister Netanyahu is going to allow us, through his glorious graciousness, to choose what we should call Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria). Did you get that? We get to choose what status Yehudah and Shomron should have, while the Prime Minister, and his rubber-stamping cabinet of ministers, actually decide what is going to happen to it.

Does he think that we are that numbed-out, asleep, stupid???

I hate to said it, but sometimes I think that we are,...sheeple (sheep + people) being led to slaughter.

It does not matter what or how much the spineless, Israeli Government gives the Yishma'elim. They are never going to settle for less than...

PA President Mahmud's (Abu Mazen) vision: Wiping Israel off of the map!

...ALL of Eretz Yisra'el. Lebanon and Jordan already have some of it, and Syria claims another piece of it for itself.

Some of them are just more patient than others.

I cannot believe that Harvard and MIT educated, Prime Minister Netanyahu is really that stupid to continue on the insane path of "making the same mistakes over and over again, expecting different results."

So, either he really IS that stupid, or he is taking orders from someone else, someone who has been methodically battling the Torah, encouraging the chopping up of our God-given birthright, working to erase its borders, and maintaining the divisions between various groups of Jews, keeping us prisoner in mentality of helplessness, believing that we can do anything about it.

Gee. And who could THAT possibly be?

Anyway, if you think that this is all insane, disgusting, and suicidal, here's the sickest part. These 104 murderers do not include any so-called "Israeli Arabs." The release of those prisoners is still up for debate.

Why is their release even on the table? The Pseudostinian Authority gives a hoot about them?

Of course, they do! They're Yishma'elim, just like them! And how do you suppose that these Yishma'elim identify themselves? As Israelis?

Not bloody likely.

A Rift Within The Religious Zionist Camp? You Don't Say?

כ"א לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

Excerpt from Arutz 7: Rabbinate Vote ‘Exposed Rift in Religious Zionism’
Member of voting board says religious Zionists chose hareidi-religious candidates. ‘Deep rift in religious-Zionist society.’

Maayana Miskin, July 28, 2013

The results of the elections should lead to serious thought, she (Sarah Eliash) warned. “The religious-Zionist community was divided from within. That raises questions about our ability to keep working together,” she said.

“Our inability to put forth a candidate who would be accepted by the entire community reveals a deep rift within us. I hope that the Bayit Yehudi, which is just starting out, will learn from what happened and will work together,” she continued.

“If not,” she warned, “we will continue to lose.”

Esser Agaroth (2¢)
Lose against whom? Lose against what? The Torah?

I am not sure where Sarah Eliash, a former high school principal and current "central activist in YeSh"A," has been for the past several years,...or really, much more than that. But, there has been a "rift" within the Religious Zionist camp for quite sometime now.

Any "Religious Zionist" with half a brain should be able to see that Rabbi Dov Lior (Hevron-Qiriyath Arba) and Rabbi Shlomo Aviner (Petah Tiqwah) have diametrically opposed points of view regarding "Religious Zionism."
Left: "A Student and his Rabbi," Right: Aviner expulsion photo op.
Far Right: Mrs. Aviner's hand-she was also wearing an orange "rav" vest. Hmm...
Any Religious Zionist who wasn't so deeply in denial, and believed that the State would never go through with the expulsion of nearly 10,000 Jews from their homes in Azza (Gaza), and their lands over to hostile Yishma'elite enemies who want to see us annihilated, remembers very clearly Rabbi Avraham Shapira ztz"l ripping up Rabbi Shlomo Aviner's opinion piece on the pending expulsion, public.

Of course, I am also not sure how anyone could possibly compare the Chief Rabbinate of Israel to the Sanhedrin, especially when the process for choosing the Rabbinate is not even a Jewish process, and many of those involved in the selection process would be disqualified from providing most forms of testimony before a rabbinic court (ie. non-kosher witnesses).

There are the Real Religious Zionists and there are the Mamlakhtim (undying State loyalists).

There are those worship The Almighty, and hold His Torah above all other authorities, and there are those who worship the State belong to the State's dance troop.

There are those who have awoken to the true colors of the traitorous YeSh"A Council, which collaborated with the government to expel those Jews from Azza (Gaza), and there are those who believe that the YeSh"A Council members are saints.

There are those are easily able to see that there are increasing numbers of conflicts between the Torah and Israeli Law, and there are those who refuse to believe that such conflicts exist that we be patient, and love all "Jews," even though they battle against the Torah left and right,...right in front of our eyes.

In short, there are Religious Zionists...

Torah Source: Genesis 15:18-21
And there are "Religious Zionists..."

See any similarities between the two? Or are you still asleep?
Torah Source: None

And this, Sarah Eliash, is why we will never be able to find a candidate who fits every Religious Zionist's bill, because there isn't just one bill to fill, but two, least two.

Sarah Eliash, where have you been all of this time? Educating our daughters?


Jew York, No More, part 2: The NY Jewish Federation

Excerpt from...

Arutz 7 Op-Ed: NY Federation has Its Own Boycott of Judea and Samaria

Ron Jager, July 23, 2013

...The New York Federation does not cross the 'green line' (known as the pre-1967 borders) unless of course it's to assist Palestinian Arabs, meaning that Jews who could benefit from the many programs that are funded and provided by the New York Federation for the citizens of Israel are effectively barred if they reside in Judea and Samaria.

Jews living beyond the green line have been voluntarily boycotted by the New York Federation despite the fact that there is no legal prohibition to support organizations or communities located in these areas, not only according to Israeli law, but also in accordance with American tax law. Any American dollar donated is fully tax deductible to the extent provided by law. This has not stopped the New York Federation from voluntarily boycotting 700,000 Jews along with the Europeans and the many enemies of Israel who have been behind the boycott movements throughout the world.

The most blatant example of this voluntary boycott by the New York Federation has to do with the victims of terror....

...Judea and Samaria is the home of over 100 terror orphans. The New York Federation has invested ten's of millions of dollars in trauma resiliency programs and trauma treatment programs in Israel, and not one cent of direct funding has crossed the green line to assist these very special children. Despite the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria being on the front lines on the "War on Terror", the New York Federation would prefer to use funding to give exposure to those that support Boycott movements and the dismantling of the State of Israel rather than fund programs such as therapeutic horseback riding and music and art therapy for these very special children who have experienced - and in many cases have witnessed -  the deaths of their parents and siblings.

If New York Federation funded agencies can so blatantly boycott children who have lost their parents and siblings to terror, why should we be so surprised when the Europeans adopt a similar policy of boycotting Jews.

Israel should and must respond to those that boycott Jews....

Esser Agaroth (2¢)
The only answer as to why the New York "Jewish" Federation would think about such a thing, let alone implement such a thing, is that the New York "Jewish" Federation is not a Jewish organization at all. Rather it is buried so deep in the belief that assimilation into Western "progressive" politically-correct ideals, that it has completely lost touch with its collective, Jewish soul, and is now collaborating in the destruction of the Jewish People, not just in the very obvious, spiritual manner, but physically as well.

Providing support to the hostile, Yishma'elite (Arab) enemy? Provid

This goes well beyond the usual "Goyim, please love us! Goyim, we want to be just like you!" co-dependence, from which many Jews have been suffering.

This is nothing less than attempted spiritual and physical, fratricide, and subsequent suicide.

Giving money to any "Jewish" Federation is no longer an option for ANY Jew. Give money directly to those who need it, whether the poor, infirmed, and elderly Jews in the U. S., or to any one of the 100+ terror orphans in Yehudah and Shomron.

I also say that we further show them! Move out of New York, and to Israel, and boycott them! They will lose their jobs, because the only Jews will actually have questionable statuses.

The ONLY job the "Jewish" Federations should have is to raise money, and to use that money to encourage, and support aliyah financially, as well as those of us Jews in Israel, who could use some help, in the face of Israeli Government policies, supportive of those who would annihilate us..

But, the Federations are not,...

So, let's boycott!

The Israeli Chief Rabbinate...Isn't

י"ח לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

1. The Chief Rabbinate of Israel is not "Chief." Since when does a legitimate chief have strings attached to it? (double meaning,...think about it)

2. The Chief Rabbinate of Israel is not a "Rabbinate." Since when is a supposedly halakhic (Jewish legal) authority chosen through the Hellenistic democratic (or deMOCKratic) process, by a group of individuals who no one knows who they are nor how they were chosen, and which includes those who are pasul for eiduth? (disqualified from giving testimony before a rabbinic court)

And, by the way, where is the real Chief Rabbinate,...the Sanhedrin? I guess no one in the government would ever want such an independent, truly rabbinic authority, empowered to criticize the State, and its "leaders," just as it had the authority to do so to the King.

Instead, we have a body placed in the very awkward position of having to choose whether to criticize its own "meal ticket,..." or not. Mostly not.

3. The Chief Rabbinate of Israel is not a "of Israel." Actually, the rabbinate formed, based on the structure of the Church of England, shmushed on top of the Ottoman Turkish version of liaison to its Jewish community. (Watch and see how!)

The Rabbinate and the Anglican Church

Your Jewish News: Anti-Jewish incidents jump nearly 30% in New York

Debbie Gross

The Anti-Defamation League, or ADL, said that there were 248 incidents across New York State in 2012. 172 of the incidents were reported in New York City, according to statistics released Monday.

“Jews are still the target of a significant number of hate crimes in the state of New York,” Gregg Mashberg, the New York ADL Regional Director, said.
The report includes cases of assault, harassment and vandalism. New York had the most anti-Semitic incidents in the country last year, according to the report.

“It is worrying that saw nearly a 30 percent rise in the total number of anti-Semitic incidents in New York,” Etzion Neuer, acting ADL New York Regional Director said. “The sharp rise in anti-Semitic vandalism incidents is a reminder that we are still not immune to anti-Semitism,” he added.

There were 87 incidents reported in Brooklyn alone. Long Island had 56 incidents. The ADL counted 927 incidents in the United States last year, including 17 assaults. Among the cases included in the report:

A Jewish school received voice messages warning that a nuclear Holocaust against Jews is approaching and threatening to “execute all Jews”.

Swastikas were painted on several buildings in the Jewish community and other locations in Brooklyn. A swastika and the phrase “F*** the Jews” were found on a playground in a public park.

The train station on Kingston Avenue had graffiti that said: “The world would be much better if all the Jews were lampshades.” Also: “Hitler was right about to the Jews.”

A Holocaust Memorial Park was defaced with the word “f ***” and a Star of David painted nearby.

(Tip: Jews News)

Esser Agaroth (2¢)
I am waiting with baited breath for the ADL's solution. "Write a letter; make it better," perhaps?

Been there. Done that. TOO many times.

Time to leave the foreign land of the United States of America, and move to our True Homeland, the Land of Israel? Yeah, right! That'll be the day!

Do you think that one one of these "executives" or "directors" will want to leave his cushy job? Doubtful.

Don't you get it? The ADL is part of the problem. Telling Jews to hold fast, not give up or give in, not to "runaway" (ie. Israel), and other such nonsense.

The U. S. is not your home. If you cannot see that The Holy One, Blessed Be He, may very well be giving you a much needed kick in the tuchus, then fine. If you want to call me a fear monger, or nut job, when I warn you to get out while you can, before the proverbial "kincks" start getting harder and more frequent, then also fine.

But, think about what you are going to do about the situation? How will you protect your children by being such to jail for a "hate crime" yourself, when in fact is was only self-defense.

Think you can get away with it because you have dark skin? Good luck. Jews ALWAYS lose the "Who's more politically correct?" contest against any other minority.

So, you're not really gonna put up a fight, save for a hand ful of you who are NRA members or martial arts experts (not mutually exclusive), because by now, it has because part of your nature.

None of you have any excuses,...none AT ALL!

And, I am certain that you will feel much more comfortable about defending yourselves and your families from "politically-incorrect" terrorists than an "oppressed poor person or junkie" whom liberal, American society wants you to think has no choice, but to steal.

Where have you heard that one before? And, by the look of things, it is only going to get worse. Think that living in Brooklyn, the Upper West Side, Riverdale, Beverly Hills, or the San Fernando Valley will save you?

Read the writing on the wall. That strategy isn't working, and hasn't been for a while now.

So, come establish your home in the only Land where you belong, in the Land of Israel.

"Avraham Avinu" In Ladino!

ט"ז לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

I was thinking about posting this in the fall, when we read about Avraham Avinu in several parshiyoth. But, I couldn't wait! I figured that Tu b'Av would be a good time, a perfect time for music and celebration. But, as you can see, I'm a little late in Israel.

Nevertheless, here is my dear friend Avraham, an oleh from Brazil, revealing his amazing voice to us! If you are a Portuguese speaker, you will enjoy watching his videos on Judaism and Israel on his YouTube channel.

Um "oleh" (imigrante) do Brasil, o meu amigo muito querido Avraham tem muitos vídeos no seu canal YouTube pessoal no que ele diz com respeito do judaísmo e Israel em Português.

The Turner Diaries and Israel: Not Just a Book Review

ט"ו לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

This book contains racist propaganda.

The FBI said it was the blueprint for the Oklahoma City bombing.

Many would like it banned. It is being published to alert and warn America.


Thus reads a tag line I found for The Turner Diaries by Andrew Macdonald.

Funny thing about goyim who want to "warn" the world about the Jews. It eventually ends up backfiring, just like with Bil'am (Num. 24) and Haman (Esther 8), and so on, and so on....

This book was well-written, and, yes, even inspiring. How could that possibly be, you ask?

Well, I immediately identified with the main character. Like I said, this book was well-written, and flowed very smoothly through effective descriptions, character development, and plot.

אם יאמר לך אדם, יש חכמה בגוים - תאמין; יש תורה בגוים - אל תאמין. (איכה רבה ב, יג)

If someone says to you there is wisdom among the goyim - believe [it]; [if someone says to you] there is Torah among the goyim - do not believe [it]. (Eichah Rabba 2:13)

With my strong identification with the main character, and his desire to do what he thought was just, my mind automatically projected my version of what is just onto the book.

The liberal, psychotic government officials, easily transformed into the wannabe goyim, leftist minority controlling Israel, right under our noses.

The "blacks," the unwitting pawns, became the Israeli and Pseudostinian Arabs.

The oppressed, white supremacists, caught in the maelstrom of wreckage caused by the liberal "do-gooders," were, of course, the Jews who were already awakened from their indoctrinated slumbering numbness,...the "real" settlers, as it were. By "real" settlers, I do not mean the hasbarah-addicted, publicity hounds, whose leaders are really just pawns of the State, nor those who encourage Christian interference in our affairs, but the "real" settlers.

In some distorted way, perhaps this book is hinting to the burgeoning rebirth of the authentic scholar-warrior Jews, unconcerned about what the goyim think, what so-called "international community thinks, but rather only what Holy One, Blessed Be He thinks. And, perhaps the nebachy, neurotics and , co-dependent, "I'm just like the goyim!" Jews will get it. And, those Jews who are embarrassed and fearful of asking questions about the heritage will no longer be embarrassed or afraid, though the revelation of this example.

*Spoiler Alert*

And the end of the book the white supremacist "heroes" "liberate" California. As a native Californian, this also hit home, for any number of reasons. One of recent memory was the lack of water for the Central Valley's massive agricultural industry, not because of lack of precipitation, but because of a Federally protected minnow, or some sort of small fish, at the mouths of the Bay Area rivers.

Food prices went up, jobs were lost, and I will hazard a guess that the banksters made out like bandits, either by foreclosing on farms and houses, or by "facilitating" the refinancing of properties by desperate Californians.

And, California's hands were tied, because this little fish was "federally" protected.

After this, I began wondering if September 9th (9/9) should be called California Nakba Day (Arabic: "tragedy"), instead of California Admission's Day.

It is kind of like how 1967 should have been a great victory for the Jewish People,...and it was. Yishma'elim (Arabs) from all directions were determined to wipe us out. But, they failed. Some say that it was the strategic brilliance and unwavering bravery of the Israeli Defense Forces [IDF]. However, they were only kelim of the Holy One, Blessed Be He, to implement His Will upon the Land.

Yet, over the years, that victory has been gradually losing its significance as our "leaders" carved up what was won only with intervention from The Almighty, and thrown to the dogs, as if it were table scraps, starting with Har HaBayith (Temple Mount) instead of the great, miraculous, and merciful gift which it truly was.

But, as they say, "power corrupts," and our leaders quickly forgot God, or pretended that they had a much better idea about what His Will was than He did,...and proceeded to did what they wanted.

If only they had remembered who they were, set apart from the goyim, and not meant to slobber over them for acceptance, and desperately try to be just like them, just as if we were still in galuth (exile), then maybe, just maybe, we would not be in this mess, and thousands of Jews were never have been brutally killed, for the sole reason that they were Jews.

I almost forgot. In my mind, California in The Turner Diaries was not just my native home of California, but was Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria). Apparently, settlers, the "real" settlers, may get their chance, now that they may be thrown to the dogs abandoned to a Pseudostinian State,...without weapons, of course.

The scholar-warrior Jews will find a way to victory, with HaShem's help!

Israel Finally Commits Suicide

Arutz 7: MK's Worry: What did PM promise Abbas?
MKs Worry: What did PM Promise Abbas? Rumors abound regarding Israeli concessions that restarted talks.

Maayana Miskin, July 21, 2013

While some have welcomed the announcement that Israel and the Palestinian Authority will resume talks, a growing number of ministers and MKs have expressed concern over the promises that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is rumored to have made in order to win PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ o agreement tnegotiate.

MK Miri Regev, a member of Netanyahu’s Likud party, called Sunday for an urgent meeting of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee to address the issue.

“In wake of [U.S. Secretary of State] Kerry’s announcement in Amman regarding the renewal of negotiations with the Palestinians, I am calling on the Prime Minister to bring the essential points of the renewal of talks to the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee for approval,” she said.

“I should note that since Justice Minister Tzipi Livni is responsible for oversight of the talks with the Palestinians, I request that she, too, come and give a report regarding the renewal of talks,” Regev added.

“I want an urgent meeting on the matter because of the various reports saying that Israel agreed to negotiate based on the 1967 lines, and that there is agreement to an Israeli gesture to Abu Mazen [Abbas’ nom de guerre – ed.] involving the release of ‘serious’ Palestinian prisoners who were involved in acts of terror and murder of Jews, prisoners who pose a threat to Israel’s security,” she continued. “We will demand that the Prime Minister clarify the truth.”

“I wish to emphasize that the deliberation on an agreement based on the 1967 lines is dangerous to Israel’s security and to the future of Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria,” she added.

Members of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) part, including ministers Naftali Bennett and Uri Ariel, have expressed concern as well. Ariel warned that if reports regarding Netanyahu’s concessions to Abbas were true, “this is a serious mistake.”

There have been several reports regarding Netanyahu’s promises to Abbas, who formerly listed several preconditions to talks, among them the release of terrorist prisoners held by Israel and a complete ban on construction of new housing for Jews living east of the 1949 armistice line. 

Some foreign papers have said that Netanyahu agreed to base talks on the “1967 lines,” meaning the 1949 armistice line. Others report that Netanyahu promised to free terrorist prisoners prior to his first meeting with Abbas. Some reports say Netanyahu agreed to an unofficial building freeze in Judea and Samaria, as well.

According to Maariv/nrg, Abbas continued to refuse talks despite concessions from Netanyahu, until Kerry warned him that his refusal would mean a cut to U.S. financial assistance to the PA. The PA relies heavily on foreign support.

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Minister Naftali Bennett
Nope! Never gonna live this one down.
Once again, MK Regev shows that she is one of the few MK's with an once of sanity left. Unless, of course, she is there, simply as an unwitting pawn to provide the illusion of an adversarial relationship between her committee and the prime minister.

Plus, MK Regev is coming from a strategic perspective. What are "religious" MK's Bennett and Ariel's excuses for their lukewarm responses? After all, aren't they from the "right-wing," "Jewish" Home Party, and wear kippahs on their heads? I am still willing to assume that that Ariel is choosing his shots, and working behind the scenes,...for now. Yet, that has never been his modus operandi.

Shimon Peres The Israeli Government keeps giving the Pseudostinians more and more. I am taking bets on how long it will take for Abbas to reach his (and Arafat's) goal?

And, now, it appears that Prime Minister Netanyahu will be releasing Yishma'eli (Arab) terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands are going to be released as part of a final "peace" (piece) agreement with the Pseudostinians, and will do so with or without cabinet minister approval (Jews News). And now, Aaron Klein has revealed that Har HaBayith (Temple Mount) will be included in the deal. (God forbid!) So, the "powers that be" are not wasting any time, are they?

And, how is it that I am able to write all this calmly, you ask?

Because my eyes have been open for quite some time now, and I have yet to see anything new come into play. The "powers that be" are quite predictable. The question which always remains to ask is "what's next?"

And, speaking of Shimon Peres...

President Shimon Peres on Sunday congratulated Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on his decision to restart peace talks.

“You have made a brave and historic decision to return to the negotiating table. Do not listen to the skeptics,” Peres said. (Translation: Do not listen to those no longer under mind control.)

Abbas told Peres that he hoped that there would be progress in the peace process and that the Palestinians “would receive an independent state that would exist side by side with Israel in peace.”
The Palestinian leader said to Peres that “we should complete the peace process that we initiated together many years ago,” adding, “There is hope; we will continue to build the future and I hope we will reach a good end.” (Translation: "A good end?" The destruction of Israel, and a big push toward its de-Jewification.)

Apparently, President Peres does not even care that he desperately needs a new acting coach.
(Photo: World Economic Forum / Benedikt von Loebell)
The Sunday Times reported on Sunday that it was Peres who “paved the way” for the agreement announced by US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday, for the resumption of peace talks between the Palestinians and Israelis.

Citing unnamed Israeli and Palestinian sources, the Timesreported that Peres met Abbas in Amman for secret talks in which he convinced the PA president to accept that “West Bank settlers and Jewish residents of East Jerusalem could remain in their settlements but be subject to the Palestinian state.”

According to the sources, Peres pressured the Palestinian leader to accept this condition “as the minimum that he needed to convince Netanyahu to give his blessing to the talks.”

Peres met last May with Abbas on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum on the Jordanian side of the Dead Sea.

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
I am so ready to smack anyone who is in the least bit surprised about this: Oslo, Geneva, and how many other secret negotiations we do NOT know about??

Furthermore, I would still like to know what Shimon Peres, in the supposedly symbolic role of Israeli President, is doing running around taking very non-symbolic actions. And by whose authority? Because he is Shimon Peres, and believe that he can do whatever the hell he wants?

Well, this is one way to get rid of us annoying settlers. They're not going to let us have any guns of course.

Peres knows that many "settlers" will leave, or even beg the "holy" Israeli Government to help them. Then he will let the Arabs do the dirty work, [in an attempt] to finish us off. Afterwards, he will just say that we "asked for this" (double meaning).

Then all he will have left to get rid of are the Haredim and undying state loyalist religious, most of whom will just follow him off the lemming cliff.

Easy peasy.

The ones who will be left in Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria) will be the ones with the emunah (faith) around to stick around.

It looks like the "powers that be" might end up leaving us alone after all. But, I do not intend to hold my breath.

NOW, will start storing food, water, firewood, and get used to the idea of living without electricity??!!

After the "powers that be" finish carving up what than get away with of The Almighty's inheritance for us, Jerusalem will be undoubtedly be next on their list. And, I mean western Jerusalem.

Think I'm crazy? Stay tuned....

Anti-Defimation League: Until 120!

ערב שבת קודש פר' ואתחנן/שבת נחמו תשע"ג

While I sneaking around researching my piece "The Anti-Defamation League [ADL] Isn't Jewish," I noticed that this co-dependently self-hating, supposedly Jewish, galuth (exile)-oriented, organization, is celebrating its 100 anniversary.

I am so tempted to "bless" it to live עד מאה ועשרים up to 120. That way, it might die in 20 years. Although the problem with that is that I do not think Am Yisra'el will be able to survive another 20 years of the ADL's "Change The World."

The ADL is now defending self-identified "Muslim Extremists?"
I couldn't care less if some player in the NFL is a Muslim or a Muslim extremist or none of the above. I do care when influencial American Jews, like Abe Foxman say to spiritually vulnerable Jews, things such as...
"...Being pro-Palestinian does not mean you’re an anti-Semite or an extremist. The record simply does not show that Aboushi has crossed that line."
Dude, unless they make public statements to the contrary, criticizing their leaders for actions directed again Israel, they all have a hazaqah of being... Gee, how do I put this? ..."not our friends."

Foxman's words were taken out of context, you say? Then how about reading the entire letter of defense yourselves.

Um,...I think that PA President Mahmud Abbas might just disagree with you, seeing absolutely no room whatsoever for Jews, in his dream of a Palestinian state, not in Hevron, not in Ariel, and not even in Tel-Aviv.

PA "President" Mahmud Abbas (Abu Mazen) and his vision of "Palestine."
But, what do I know? I have only put my tuchus on the line for the past 16 years, actually living where all Jews are supposed to be living, Israel. What about you, Abe?

True. Many (most?) Jews living in galuth just don't get it. In 1683, Muslims made it all of the way west to the gates of Vienna, Austria, but were pushed back. Now, they have long since bypassed those gates, employing a newer, more effective strategy,..."Western guilt." They have now becoming significant influences in a number of European countries, not to mention pulling strings and otherwise throwing their weight around in the U. S., aided and abetted by Leftists who "have only the best of intentions."
A picture is worth a
thousand words, or
at least 120 words.

Don't forget that "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."

But, I digress....

Does the ADL really have to make things worse by brainwashing encouraging the already (physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually) "stuck in exile" Jews to forget that Muslims are not the Jewish People's biggest fans?

No, it doesn't. But, they do.

More Evidence that the Anti-Defimation League is not Jewish

י' לחודש החמישי תשע"ג

Rabbi Shmu'el Eliyahu
Rabbi of Tzfath
ADL Welcomes AG's Recommendation Against Eliyahu’s Candidacy for Chief Rabbi of Israel
Jerusalem, July 15, 2013

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today welcomed the recommendation by Israel’s attorney general against Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu’s candidacy for the July 24 election for Sephardic chief rabbi of Israel.

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein has reportedly determined he would be unable to defend Rabbi Eliyahu, who has been widely criticized for a number of anti-Arab statements he has made over the years, from legal challenges by those who would accuse him of racism.

“Israel’s chief rabbis not only serve as the most public religious authorities in Israel, they are also role models for many Israelis and are seen as important figures in Jewish and other faith communities around the world,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.  “Rabbi Eliyahu’s racist statements and extremist views make him ill-suited to serve in such a high-profile and important Israeli government position.”

On July 11, ADL wrote a letter to Naftali Bennet, Israel’s minister of religious affairs and head of the Habayit Hayehudi Party, questioning support for Rabbi Eliyahu by a majority of members of the party, “…without giving adequate consideration to Rabbi Eliyahu’s record of inappropriate, offensive and, at times, racist statements and positions about Israeli Arabs and Palestinians.”

The League has publicly objected to certain positions adopted by Rabbi Eliyahu, including the use of his capacity as chief rabbi of Safed to direct Jewish residents not to rent apartments to Arabs, a matter that was subjected to an official Ministry of Justice investigation.

Rabbi Eliyahu also reportedly made comments suggesting that Israel should indiscriminately bomb Palestinians in response to rocket fire from Gaza into Israel, saying that, “If they don’t stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand. And if they do not stop after 1,000 then we must kill 10,000. If they still don't stop we must kill 100,000, even a million. Whatever it takes to make them stop.”

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Believe it or not, Foxman is right about one thing.
"...they [Israel's Chief Rabbis] are also role models for many Israelis and are seen as important figures in Jewish and other faith communities around the world"
Foxman appears to be overly concerned over "what the goyim will think," just like so many nebekhy, galuth (exile)-minded Jews, worshiping modernism and progress, at the expense of forsaking their heritage, The Holy One, Blessed Be He's Torah. May The Almighty please grant them guidance!

If doing ones best to follow the Torah in every aspect of ones life, not just what to put into my mouth and what I can or cannot do on Shabbath, but how to run a [truly] Jewish military, how to fight a war, and how to interact with goyim in various situations, means being a racist and an extremist, then I personally plead "guilty."

In the case of any conflict, Torah Law precedes any and all laws established by human beings, Jews or otherwise.

It would be nice to have a real role model to Jews and non-Jews alike, by showing Israel and the world what it means to be a rabbi, one who is not afraid to express those politically-incorrect words of Torah, which so many try to cover-up, apologize for, or otherwise attempt to interpret away, instead of having a puppet.

So far, Rabbi Shmu'el Eliyahu shlit"a seems to fit the bill.

Foxman never brings a single halakhic source to counter Rabbi Shmu'el Eliyahu's rulings and stances, which he supports with halakhah. Rather, he appears to stand by a Western/assimilationist/galuth view of the world instead.

This is why the Anti-Defimation League could not possibly be a Jewish organization, its complete absence of Torah. And if it does not claim to be one, then even more so, it certainly does not serve any truly Jewish interests, only those of keeping Jews in galuth, and stuck in a galuth/assimilation-oriented mentally,...learning to be even more like the Western goyim they so seem to idolize (pun intended).

I am sure you can now see why the Sanhedrin was not appointed by just anyone. There was no Hellenist democratic process, nor deMOCKratic process, only Torah scholars involved, quite possibly like Rabbi Shmu'el Eliyahu.

Arutz 7: EU Redraws Israel Borders to 1949 Lines
For the first time, the EU formally forbids trade with bodies located beyond 1949 Armistice lines, including Golan.

Gil Ronen, July 16, 2013

The European Union [EU] has issued orders forbidding its member states from cooperating, transferring funds, giving scholarships or research grants to bodies in Judea and Samaria, eastern Jerusalem , and even the Golan Heights, Haaretz wrote Tuesday.

The new instruction, promulgated by the European Commission, which is the operative arm of the EU, sets parameters for cooperation between the EU and its members states, on the one hand, and Israeli governmental and private elements on the other. The instructions are for the years 2014 – 2020 and will go into force on Friday, July 18.

The decision also states that any future agreement signed with Israel must include a section that says the “settlements” are not part of sovereign Israel and therefore not included in the agreement.

A senior source in the Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that the new EU decision is dramatic, and can be called “a true earthquake.”

"This is the first time in which a explicit and formal instruction like this is issued. Until now, there were silent understandings and agreements that the EU does not work beyond the Green Line” – as the 1949 Armistice Line is known – “but this is an official and binding prohibition.” (Official to whom? Binding to what?)

Deputy Foreign Minister Ze'ev Elkin said that the EU decision is “very worrisome” and will make it difficult for the state of Israel to conduct contacts with the EU regarding cooperation agreements.

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
What's all the uproar? What's all the shock and surprise about?

The State of Israel made its own bed back in תשכ"ז/1967, by not annexing Yehudah, Shomron, and Azza (Judea, Samaria, and Gaza), and by not retaining Har HaBayith (Temple Mount), and by not at least beginning to tackle the Arab problem. Now, it appears, it is going to have to sleep in it.

Besides the shock and surprise, the only problem I see here is that the Israeli Government, and those of its citizens who have successfully completed their indoctrination into undying loyalists, actually care about what the EU sees as being Israel, and what it does not, and how that will affect business.


If we do not say that all of Eretz Yisra'el is ours, if we do not demonstrate with appropriate actions that all of it is ours, then why should anyone else in the world believe that all of it is, in fact, ours??

Eretz Yisra'el in the time of Yehoshu'a bin Nun
Unfortunately, those who suffer are the people, and those in Yehudah and Shomron who still rely on the Israeli government, as its "stand-in" for a king.

Q: When will the Israeli government finally stop being so concerned with what the goyim think?

A: Quite possibly when it ceases to be the Israeli Government.

Arabs Still Hate Jews? Nah!

NYPost: Saudi Airlines Discriminating Against Israeli Citizens
- refuses to sell tickets to fliers with Israel passports, de Blasio probe reveals
Airline refuses tix

Beth DeFalco, July 15, 2013

Something’s not kosher with this airline.

Saudi Arabian Airlines is discriminating against Israeli citizens by refusing to fly them from US airports — even when passengers are simply looking to transfer in Saudi Arabia to another country, The Post has learned.

The airline’s Web site asks for citizenship to book a ticket but has no option on a drop-down menu for anyone holding an Israeli passport. The oversight doesn’t appear accidental — the drop-down menu is so thorough it even has an option for Antarctica.

“No city in the world has closer ties to Israel than we do, and yet Israeli citizens are being discriminated against right here at JFK. It’s not only illegal; it’s an affront to who we are,” said Public Advocate, and mayoral candidate, Bill de Blasio, who conducted a recent telephone sting on the Mideast nation’s airline. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
I recommend reading the above piece. Even the blocking of Saudi websites in Israel was revealed,...or re-revealed. A list of partner airlines is also included.

The sarcasm in the title was appropriate.

This should be no surprise to anyone. The only question here, is if Saudi Arabian Airlines will get away with it, or not.

Jews are still banned from entering Saudia Arabia. The handful of U. S. foreign service agents have sneaked in by writing down Christianity as their religious. Perhaps there are exceptions of which I am unaware. Nonetheless, Jews have not been welcome in Saudia Arabia at least since Muhammed ימך שמו massacred 400 to 900 Jews in what is now Medina.

From Wikipedia:
The Banu Qurayza... were a Jewish tribe which lived in northern Arabia, at the oasis of Yathrib (presently known as Medina), until the 7th century. In February/March of 627 AD, their conflict with Muhammad led to a 25-day siege of Banu Qurayza ending in the tribe's surrender. There is much debate about the number executed with some estimating that between 400-900 males (many pubescent and adolescent boys) were beheaded, while the Sunni hadith simply state that all male members were killed, without specifying a figure, and one woman.
We'll see if any investigation into the discriminatory practices on American soil ensues, and if repercussions follow, or if the U. S. Government's oil addiction will prevail.

Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai teaches that we learn a rule that ישמעאל שונא את יעקב/Yishma'el hates Ya'aqov, Yishma'el being the Arab World (Ramba"m).

Let's see how many American Jews finally start seeing the writing on the wall, and tart making plans to leave the foreign land of their residence.

I Want Arabs To Succeed!

צום החמישי תשע"ג
Fast of the Fifth Month (Tisha b'Av) 5773

I want Arabs in Israel to succeed.

It's true. I do.

When I taught elementary school English to Arabs in Yaffo, I wanted them to succeed. I encouraged sixth-grader Mustafa and fourth-grader Walid, by telling them how good they were doing, and how talented they were in learning English. I told them how amazing it was that they were gaining mastery over not just a second language, but a third!

While teaching at this school, I was friendly with a fellow English teacher, an Orthodox Christian Arab. Her English was near perfect, and I told her so.

All of my positive comments to my Arab students and colleagues were true. I stand behind every one of them.

Not only was I just fulfilling the duties of the job for which I was being paid, but I was also fulfilling a misswah. Which one, you ask? Read on.

After two years in Tel-Aviv, I moved to Jerusalem, and was fortunate enough to find a job fairly quickly. It was also as an English teacher, but for mostly adults. Then in the summer, I taught in a summer program for junior high and high school students.

When I taught Arab students, I wanted them to succeed, the Kindergarten teacher and police officer from Abu-Ghosh, and the 7th-grader from Jerusalem.

Many Arabs want to leave Israel, having no connection to the land whatsoever, and wanting to be left alone, raise their families, and stay out of the way of Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad, etc.

Improving their English skills will help them become more marketable both to potential employers in their new home country, not to mention that country's immigration services.

I had the same kewanna (intent) the year before while teaching in Yaffo, both when interacting with students, and when encouraging that fellow English teacher, I mention above, that yes she would do quite well in Canada. Her husband was an Arab Canadian, who was considering a move back with his wife.

If Arabs want to leave Israel, then who am I to stand in their way?
Hopefully, we will not end up having a bunch insane Leftists begging them to stay, like in 1948.

If the Israeli Government is not going to do the right thing,...not to mention passionately doing the wrong things, over and over and over again,...then maybe some encouragement and a gentle push will accomplish what the Israeli government is unwilling to do by force or by bribery.
