Abbas Threatens to Stop Abiding by the Oslo Accords!

ג׳ חול המועד סוכות תשע״ו

This was PA President Mahmud Abbas's "bombshell" he dropped at the United Nations? The bombshell that the U. S. Secretary of State actually put effort into pressuring him not to drop it? Seriously?

(YAWN) Abbas threatens to stop abiding by Oslo Accords in UN General Assembly speech
Danielle Ziri, 09/30/2015

The Palestinian leader's speech comes amid continued clashes between Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.

“Israel must assume all of its responsibilities as an occupying Power, because the status quo cannot continue,” President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas declared in his speech in front of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday.

Abbas made clear that the Palestinian authority was no longer bound by the Oslo Accords, signed 22 years ago. According to him, Israeli settlement activities and refusal to release the fourth group of Palestinian prisoners during the US-backed peace talks last year, show Israel is not committed to the two-state solution.

“We will not remain the only ones committed to the implementation of these agreements while Israel continuously violates them,” Abbas said.

The annoucement came after the Palestinian leader had promised to “drop a bombshell” during his address. In the days before the speech however senior palestinian officials had said that Abbas may not do so after pressure from US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Mahmoud Abbas also urged the General Assembly to grant Palestine, which only holds the status of an observer state at the UN, full recognition and membership.

He also added that it is “unreasonable and painful” that the question of Palestine “unjustly remains unresolved.”

“The question of Palestine was one of the first just issues brought before the United Nations from the time of its inception, and yet it remains unresolved until this moment,” he said, “The United Nations and its members continue to be unable to end this injustice inflicted upon our [the palestinian] people and to assist our [the palestinian] people to exercise their right to self-determination and freedom in their independent and sovereign state.”

Speaking about internal Palestinian politics Abbas assured the General Assembly that he is “determined to preserve unity” and form a national unity government that functions according to the program of the Palestine Liberation Organization through presidential and legislative elections. “We will not accept temporary solutions or a fragmented State,” he said.

Mahmoud Abbas also spoke about the situation on Temple Mount in Jerusalem. He said that “extremist Israefi groups are committing repeated, systematic incursions upon Al-Aqsa Mosque” under the protection of the Israeli government.

“We will not accept this, and the Palestinian people will not allow the implementation of this illegal scheme, which is aggravating the sensitivities of Palestinians and Muslims everywhere,” he added.
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
U. N. 1947 Partition Plan
Since when have the Pseudostinians ever held to the Oslo Accords?


Fourth release of Arab terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands shows that "Israel is not committed to the two-state solution."

Oh, if only that were so!

Unfortunately, all is means is that the Israeli Government was not feeling as suicidal at the time, as it usually does.

PLO Insignia
“The question of Palestine was one of the first just issues brought before the United Nations from the time of its inception, and yet it remains unresolved until this moment.”

That it was. However, Abbas conveniently neglects to mention here that the Arabs rejected the United Nations partition of 1947. Instead, Jordan, Iraq, Syria, and Egypt preferred to wipe out the Jewish People within their grasp, and take all of Eretz Yisra'el (Land of Israel) for themselves. The country of "palestine" is not included here, because it has never existed. Jordan was in possession of Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria), and is still in possession of Har HaBayith (Temple Mount), where Jews are still not allowed to pray.

Fateh Emblem
From the PLO insignia which was worn proudly on Yassar Arafat's arm to the Fatah emblem of the so-called "moderate" Arab terrorists of Mahmud Abbas, to Mahmud Abbas himself, the Arabs do not simply want Yehudah and Shomron. They do not want the 1949 armistice borders. They do not want the United Nations partition plan of 1947.

Mahmud Abbas's Vision of Palestine
The Arabs want ALL of Eretz Yisra'el (Land of Israel), to literally wipe us off of the map.

Are people, the "international community" and Jews like, that blind? Apparently so.

The only other question remains is: "What exactly was this idiotic rouse supposed to be distracting us from?"

Oh, I don't know, maybe that ISIS and Russia are at at our doorsteps, and that news out of Jordan regarding the ISIS threat is conspicuously absent.

When Jordan falls, it was suggested that the Jordanian Hashemite Royal Family could just extend their stay in the U. S. They are currently their for the United Nations General Assembly.

Stay tuned!

Lulav Decoration/קישוט הלולב

ב׳ חול המועד סוכות תשע״ו

Upon seeing my lulav, I cannot tell you how many times people have make comments about how hippy-dippy my lulav looked, or that I made this up, or that there was a problem with hatzitzah, separation between the parts of the lulav, and thus disqualifying it for use.

Needless to say, I encountered a lot of people who made it there business to tell me such things.

But, actually...
משנה תורה ז,י [יא]
עשה לאגודה זו גימון של כסף ושל זהב, או שכרך עליה סדין ונטלה--יצא:
Mishneh Torah, Laws of Lulav 7:10 [11]
If one wraps a silver or gold chord around the bundle, or wraps cloth and took it up, he has fulfilled his obligation [of the mitzvah].
לפי משנה סוכה ג,ח ותלמוד בבלי מסכת סוכה לו,ב שימוש בגימון של זהב מעשה אנשי ירושלים. ואז אני שמח להשתתף בחידוש המנהג הזה!

חג שמוח!

Specifically, the use of a gold chord appears to have been something done by those in Jerusalem (See Mishnah Sukkah 3:8, TB Sukkah 36b), so I feel great about doing my to bring this custom back!

Hag Same'ah!

Yair Naveh as Police Commissioner? This is Bad, Very Bad.

ערב שבת קודש פר׳ האזינו תשע״ו

Ma'ariv via Ex-Deputy Chief of Staff Yair Naveh to be considered for police commissioner position

Following the revocation of the candidacy of Gal hirsch, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan looks to other potential candidates to fill the position of police commissioner.

After the candidacy of Gal Hirsch for police commissioner was revoked on Wednesday, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan continued to work to find a suitable candidate for the job who can be the driving force behind the reforms needed in the police forces.

According to sources, the name currently buzzing in the offices of the Ministry of Public Security is Major General Yair Naveh, age 58, former Deputy Chief of Staff, who reached the final rounds in the race to become chief of staff which he lost to now retired General Benny Gantz.

Naveh's candidacy was put forward by Education Minister Naftali Bennet during the stages when the role was intended to be filled by his party, but when the time came to make a decision regarding the position of police commissioner, Erdan overlooked Naveh and instead tapped Hirsch. According to inside sources, Erdan is now backing Naveh's candidacy. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Gen. Yair Naveh
Of course, I was angered by the suggestion of Yair Naveh for the position of Police Commissioner, and before that, IDF Chief of Staff.
(Wikipedia) Naveh was previously the head of Israeli Home Front Command until nominated by former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to his post as Central Command chief. It is believed by some Israelis that Sharon nominated Naveh because he is the highest ranked religious officer and that as head of Central Command, he would be forced to carry out the evacuation of West Bank settlements in 2005.[2]
Yair Naveh is the general who was appointed to protect Jews in the Shomron (Samaria), yet it seems that he mostly did the opposite. The following is a translation of a poster put out by the Lev Yehudi (Jewish Heart) organization in 2007, to provide you with some examples of what I am talking about:
1. Expulsion

Yair Naveh, as general of the central command, was the commander over the expulsion of Jews and the destruction of Jewish towns in the Northern Shomron, a year and a half ago.

2. Pogrom

Exactly one year ago, Yair Naveh was the commander over all of the Yasam (riot police) and regular police forces which implemented the intentional pogrom in Amona.

3. Incitement

Yair Naveh incites additional expulsion and uprooting
the uprooting of hilltop [communities] in Judea and Samaria, in his own words, calling them "rebellious strongholds."

4. Silent Expulsion

Yair Naveh has signed over 20 restraining and keep-away orders against town and hilltop residents, expelling them from their homes and families, for many months, without any due process, nor any compensation.

Are the kippah on Naveh's head or his positive, past acts able to cover up his crimes?(cont.)

Lev Yehudi
Religious, huh?

He completed ignored the request to appear before Rabbi Yisra'el Ariel's Beth Din to answer for his traitorous acts (Beth Din's words, not mine). Then when the Beth Din held theoretical discussions about the possible din (status) of Yair Naveh, and which punishments the Torah would dictate, Rabbi Yisr'ael Ariel was arrested and interrogated.

Arrested and interrogated for Torah discussions! But, the two could not possibly be connected to each other, right?

Anyone who thinks that rabbis are running this State, and not the Israeli [in-] Justice System is just wrong.

Incidentally, another strike against Naveh is that he briefly the CEO of the super disastrous CityPass company which built, and now operates the Jerusalem Light Rail.

But, however angry I was to learn of Naveh's name being suggested for the position of IDF Chief of Staff, and then for Police Commissioner, I was even more angered that his name was put forth by none other than Jewish Home Party Head Naftali Bennett.

Naftali Bennett
Loosing his kippah/working his magic!
Naveh is not a Religious Zionist (in my opinion), who believes in truly Jewish sovereignty over Eretz Yisra'el (Land of Israel). He is a government lackey, who was indoctrinated into die-hard State loyalism long ago in educational institutions like Yeshivath Netiv Meir, where none other than MK Elazar Stern was one of his classmates. Need I say more?

Of course, Naftali Bennett is even worse (in my opinion). Not only does appear to be completely confused as to what Torah is and what Israeli law is, and that there is even a difference, but he is "loved" by the numbed out Jews of this country, and very much in a power to push his agenda.

Wake Up! Ann Coulter Is Right!

ערב שבת קודש פר׳ האזינו תשע״ו

As usual, Jews are all up in arms about Ann Coulter's latest tweet, and her use of an expletive,, and intensifier. Seriously?

I wonder if they realize just how much free publicity they are giving her?

But, I digress...

As a Jew is doing the best he to do what he is supposed to do, that is following the Torah, including living in Eretz Yisrael (Land of Israel), the Jewish Homeland, not only am I not surprised by Ann Coulter's statement, but I also agree with her,...sort of.

Like it or not, everything in the U. S. Government and news media does seem to be too focused on Israel.

Aren't there a few other things more pressing on the minds of American politicians, such as the drought in California (not to mention its water-hogging, Federally protected minnow), renewable energy, the slavery of American citizens to the banxsters, or how the current administration has already decided what to do, or rather what not to do about its borders and inflow of illegal immigrants (and Muslim terrorists), and that it seems that the next administration, Democratic or Republican will probably not do anything much differently?

Then, of course, there are the various American Jewish organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League [ADL] and American Israel Political Action Committee [AIPAC], which I will continue to consider to be absolutely worthless, until they finally start advocating mass aliyah (Jewish immigration to Israel). Apparently, they do not have anything better to do than to whine about people calling us names.

Get over it! Do something actually helpful! Send a disabled Jewish kid to camp! Feed the Jews living under the poverty line! (Yes, there are such Jews.) Fund Jewish education! Of course, I mean real, Jewish education, not that Torah-distorted, "do what I want" crap, "Jewish leaders" are trying to pass off as Jewish.

Now, as for Ann Coulter, although she deserves brownies points for mentioning the ever present elephant in the room, as does she for pointing the following observations in her in the Jewish Press (July 4, 2006).

By the way, Ann, the brownies are pareve, dairy-free, so you can eat them after a steak. Oh, wait a minute! Ann Coulter's a shiqtzah, so she doesn't have to worry about all that. Yes! I used that word! Heaven forfend!

Yes, I did use that word! Get over it! For all I know, Ann Coulter has used the word herself. Oy Gevald! I just called Ann Coulter a name. Do you think she cares?

I am guessing that Ann Coulter doesn't give a rat's tuchus as to which names she is called, or what most other people think of her. And, I believe that we (co-dependent) Jews would do well to take a lesson from Ann Coulter on this point.

We need to stop worrying about every time calls us a name, like that's never happened before in history. We need to stop worrying about what other nations think of us, and worry a little more about what we think of ourselves. Oh, and perhaps think more about what God thinks of us? Nah! Why should we worry about that?! (sarcasm here)

Here are some snippets from the Ann Coulter's interview in the Jewish Press:
Why, when it comes to terrorism in Afghanistan or Iraq, does the U.S. apply a strong hand – but when it’s Palestinian terrorism against Israel, there’s not the same tenacity and determination?

Probably because of the formidable left-wing lobby, which has now added anti-Semitism to its sins. (I guess that makes left-wing Jews self-hating. But, I've been saying that for years.)

Have you ever written about Israel? If not, why not?

I rarely write about any country other than the U.S. There are too many big juicy fish to fry right here at home! Also, I’m a Protestant girl from Connecticut and there are many other capable writers who know a lot more about the subject than I do. In fact, I just started a screenplay about a Connecticut shiksa like me trying to become an expert on Israel. It’s called “Mission Impossible IV.” (See?! I was right! She has used this word to describe herself!)

What are your feelings about the disengagement from Gaza last year? Since Israel’s withdrawal from the area over 500 rockets have been fired from Gaza into Jewish communities. Al Qaeda has moved into the territory abandoned by Israel. Iran is looking to establish an embassy there. Egypt has accused the Gaza terrorists as targeting them as well.

My first thought is that the Jewish people may not drive as hard a bargain as I’ve always been led to believe. I take it this is part of a long-term Israeli strategy to achieve lasting security by giving up some disputed areas while re-doubling efforts to protect their new, smaller boundaries with measures such as the security wall, which I understand has been very effective in keeping suicide bombers out. By the way, would you happen to know where the U.S. could get one of those walls? One about, oh, seven hundred miles or so long? No special reason, just curious. (I hope people understand that she's being sarcastic about Israel's "brilliant" strategy. You never know....)

What about the planned withdrawal from the West Bank, from which rockets can hit Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Israel’s International Airport?

If you start a war and lose, you lose your land. Next.
Do we Jews have such short memories? Halavai there should be many more Ann Coulters able to make such observations, and not afraid to say them out loud. So, she says that Jews need to be "perfected." I think that she needs to be perfected. Who cares??
Ann Coulter doesn't.

Eid Mubarak! Happy al-Adha!/عيد مبارك! عيد الأضحى

 י״א לחודש השביעי תשע״ו

Um, But, now that I have your leftist, Islamo-slobbering attention....

Who else was awoken at 6:00am this morning by the muezzin (caller to prayer)? After years of living in the Shomron (Samaria), I thought I had habituated to it, and I had. Here in Jerusalem, next to an Arab neighborhood, my successful habituation has been holding up.

However, this morning, we were awaken by special prayers and sermon, and particularly loud ones at that, for the Muslim Eid al-Adha, which celebrates the conclusion of the Hajj to Mecca, and commemorates the Muslim belief that Avraham brought his son Yishma'el for sacrifice. Even though any Jew would tell you that Avraham brought his son Yitzhaq to be sacrificed, while Yishma'el waited at the foot of the mountain Har Moriah (Temple Mount), with his servant Eli'ezer, and the donkeys.

This is why I was taken aback by the Times of Israel's Eid Mubarak (Blessed Holiday) greeting yesterday evening after Yom Kippur, not just condoning, but celebrating kefirah (denial of the Torah).

In addition to their distortion of one of Avraham's aforementioned tests (10 tests in all, Mishnah Avoth 5:), Muslims will tell you that the Ka'aba, which was recently threatened with destruction by a falling crane, was built by Avraham, and that their pebble throwing at a representation of Satan cam from Avraham as well. Even though pebble [not stone, not rock, not sticks, but pebble] throwing was associated with the worship of Mercury, long before the invention of Islam.
הלכות תשובה ג,יז [ח]
...והאומר שהבורא החליף מצוה זו במצוה אחרת, וכבר בטלה תורה זו, אף על פי שהיא הייתה מעם ה', כגון הנוצריים וההגריים....
Law of Repentance 3:17 [8]
...And one who says that the Creator exchanged one mitzvah (commandment) for another, has already cancelled the Torah itself, even though he says that it [the Torah] was from The Almighty, like the Christians and Muslims....
This provides us with yet another reason what the Times Of Israel should be more aptly called the Times of Arabia.

As a self-proclaimed Christian, who is also supposed to to believe in the Written Torah, and thus Avraham's sacrifice of his son Yitzhaq, not Yishma'el, it seems that U. S. President Obama is also suborning denial of the Bible by wishing Muslims a "happy holiday." US President Obama wishes Muslims 'Eid Mubarak'

US President Barack Obama on Wednesday sent holiday wishes to Muslims around the world celebrating Eid al-Adha on Wednesday.

"As more than 2 million Muslims from around the world and across the United States mark the end of their holy pilgrimage of Hajj in Mecca, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to Muslims around the world celebrating Eid al-Adha," Obama stated.

"This pilgrimage and Eid is about sacrifice, almsgiving, and equality," he said, adding that the Hajj is reminiscent of the principle upon which the United States was founded: e pluribus unum – out of many, one.

Obama also praised the spirit of giving to the needy on Eid al-Adha, stating that "Muslim American organizations are among those at the forefront of attending to victims in this refugee crisis."
Of course, the "crisis" is not really a crisis, and Islam has nothing to do with equality.

Israeli Volunteers Help Refugees Fleeing to Europe

מוצאי יום הכפורים תשע״ו

Times Of Israel: When Israeli volunteers help Syrian, Iraqi and Pakistani refugees
One man who was receiving treatment from IsraAID doctor Tali Shaltiel kept asking, ‘Tell me the truth, is she a Jew?’

Gavin Rabinowitz September 23, 2015

ESBOS, Greece (JTA) — As the small rubber dinghy crowded with Syrians and Afghans emerged from the midnight-black sea to land on a desolate pebble beach, the first people to greet the bewildered and frightened refugees were two Israelis.

“Does anyone need a doctor?” Majeda Kardosh, 27, a nurse from Nazareth, shouted repeatedly in Arabic as the asylum seekers scrambled ashore amid cries of celebration and tears of relief at surviving the short but perilous crossing from Turkey to this Greek island.

Her team partner, Tali Shaltiel, 31, a physician from Jerusalem, stood knee deep in the water, helping a shivering 4-year-old girl out of her wet clothes and a pair of inflatable armbands that would have provided little protection had the overloaded boat capsized at sea.

Kardosh and Shaltiel are part of a small advance group of volunteers from IsraAid, an Israeli non-governmental organization that is trying to provide some assistance to the hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants who are flowing into Europe. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Well, I expect such a report from JTA (eyes rolling). But, it seems that Times Of Israel is turning into your typical hasbarah (Israel PR) cheerleader, by posting this flowery report of Israel traveling the world to save everyone expect their own.

Gee! Maybe this time the goyim will love us!

Well, they didn't love us after Haiti relief, Nepal relief, Turkey relief, Philippines relief, etc., save for a few handpicked snippets. However, misguided Jews will insist that it does not matter what we get out if it, and even claim that this some kind of manifestation of being "A Light Unto the Nations," one of the more overused and distorted phrases from Tana"kh.

Would you like to be a "A Light Unto the Nations?" Then how about following our own rules? It's called the Torah, you know? Part of the Torah includes allowing non-believers to succumb to the fate which The Almighty has dictated for them (Mishneh Torah, Hil. A"Z 10:1).

I am still not sure how Afghans and Pakistanis have anything to do with this "Syrian Refugee Crisis."
Watch this video to find out why the Syrian refugee crisis is not Syrian, not about refugees and not even a crisis.

Meanwhile, I am still waiting for compensation from when I survived a suicide bomber attack 13 years ago. I guess I should stop holding my breath, huh?
South Tel-Aviv residents are still waiting for relief from the barrage of African infiltrators, stealing, harassing, trashing, and otherwise making their neighborhood and "unpleasant" place to live.

They are also waiting for a new kindergarten to be built to handle their population, but will have to continue to wait. A new kindergarten was just built in their neighborhood,...for "refugees" and "foreign workers."

I wonder just how money gets funneled into this "non-governmental organization," from Israeli taxes. What about from other sources of funds, included in agreements between the Israeli Government and countries such as the U. S.

Inquiring minds want to know....

Who is the Biblical Figure of Joseph?

ערב יום הכפורים תשע״ו

Arutz 7: Terrorists Wound Soldier as Thousands Visit Joseph's Tomb
Over 60 Arabs riot, throw rocks and moderately wound soldier who stood guard over 2,000 Jews visit Biblical grave during Days of Awe.

Ari Yashar, 9/21/2015

An IDF soldier was lightly to moderately wounded on Sunday night by a mob of Arab terrorists, as he took part in guarding a mass visit by Jews to the ancient tomb of the Biblical figure Yosef (Joseph) located in Shechem (Nablus), Samaria. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
"Biblical figure Yosef?"

Seriously? The implication here is either that Yosef was some guy, in some book called the Bible, or might even have been fictional.

I believe that you meant to say "Yosef Ben Ya'aqov Avinu" or "Yosef HaTzadiq."

Please correct this.

Arutz 7 is supposed to be a JEWISH news site.

If you will not listen to Jews, then maybe you will listen to your Christian friends, who should notice this as well.

I wonder if any of these same Christians will be led to think that this was actually the tomb of the Christian mythological figure of the same name.
Typical Arutz 7.

Israel, Where are your Christian Friends Now?

ז׳ לחודש השביעי תשע״ו

Hey, I thought that Arab Christians were now identifying as Aramaeans? I guess not all of them.
Arutz 7: Christian Schools Demand Money - But Salute PLO Flag
Arab Christian schools in Israel strike, rejecting offers and demanding more budget, but videos reveal they teach loyalty to 'Palestine.'

Uzi Baruch, 9/19/2015

Arab Christian schools in Israel have been conducting a strike since the start of the school year, pressing the government for weeks with claims that they have been suffering from discrimination and demanding more funding.

However, an investigation reveals that a large number of the Arab Christian schools are openly supportive of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) terror group in their struggle against Israel.

Arutz Sheva has unearthed videos showing students of several Arab Christian schools holding ceremonies with the anthem "Palestine" blaring, and performing skits while wrapped in the PLO flag and the black-and-white keffiyeh made famous by arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat, former head of the PLO.

In their strike since the start of the school year several weeks ago, Arab Christian schools have been demanding that the Economy Ministry and Education Ministry significantly increase their budgets.

Those two ministries last week proposed to the heads of the Arab Christian community an additional 50 million shekels ($12.8 million) to their school budgets, to solve the financial crisis that has been delaying the start of the school year.

The Christian schools rejected the offer, demanding an additional 200 million shekels ($51.2 million) instead. (cont. below)
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
So, is Arutz 7 differentiating between Arab Christians and their white, American Christian friends? Sounds racist to me, doesn't it?

Do the white, American Christian "friends" of Israel who want a foothold on our Land differentiate between themselves and Arab Christians?

Why aren't they yelling their support for their fellow Christians, and even demanding equal funding, in the name of "religious equality?"

Why aren't they down there in the trenches, attempting to convinece them to change their ways, reject the Palestinian Authority [PA], and support Israel?

Anyway, what the report lacked, and which could have saved Arutz 7, and its American Christian "friends" embarrassment was a mention of the Vatican. Arutz 7 knows very well the differences proclaimed between their American Christian "friends" and the Vatican. Arutz 7 has even reported on the Vatican's eye on Har Tzion (Mt. Zion), and its various attempts to take it over.

Arutz 7 could have looked into whether these schools were Orthodox or Catholic. The Orthodox leadership has become increasingly public about its pro-Israel stance, including the encouragement of enlistment in the Israeli Defense Forces [IDF]. It is just more attempts to infiltrate and/or "graft onto" us, if you ask me.

If they were Catholic,Arutz 7 could have researched any connection to the traditionally Jew-hating Roman Patriarch of Jeruslem, Rome's representative in Israel and Jordan.

If they were Orthodox, an expose would have been readymade. Of course, it is doubtful that Arutz 7 would have gone that far, risking their "friendship" with American Christians

Many of you may wonder to yourselves, "Don't these Christians read their Bibles? Don't they see that The Almighty gave the Land of Israel to the Jews?"

The answer? Of course they read their Bibles, and see that the Land of Israel was given to us, in other words, past tense.

They do not really give a darn who has it now. They believe that they, both Catholics and American Christian "friends" of Israel alike, are doing The Almighty's will, and not the Jews (חו״ח). Thus, they believe that the inheritance of The Almighty's favor, including Eretz Yisra'el, our Divinely promised Land, has been transferred to them (חו״ח).

Those in the Vatican bide their time, believing that their false deity/messiah will arrive and conquer everything for them, yet also picking at pieces of our Land as they will.

American Christian "friends" of Israel have take a different approach from their forefather Esau (Jacob's fraternal twin brother), "grafting on" to the Jewish People, through bribery and transforming their practices in varying degrees to make it more palatable to their Jewish patrons.

Many even claim to have given up their goals of converting Jews to their foreign worship, believing that will be taken care of for them by the same false deity/messiah the Vatican's empire awaits.

They have the same, mythological texts. They have the same ultimate goals. They have simply adopted different strategies, based on their somewhat different takes on their texts.

Arutz 7 missed the opportunity to differentiate between them, based on their activities on the ground. This is just as well, as all Christians, whether Catholic, Evangelicals, claimants of being from a lost tribe, and those who have infiltrated the Shomron (Samaria) who try to dress like us, and refrain from mentioning their false deity/messiah by name in public, all have the same eventual goals, to bring Jews and other non-Christians to their foreign worship, and to take possession of our Divinely Promised Homeland, either with or without us.

Think this is bad? It is. But, believe it or not, it is not the worst part. Here is the worst part mentioned at the end of the above report:
...All Israeli schools above elementary level are to strike on Sunday for two hours in a sign of identification with the 33 million Christian school students.

The teacher's union above elementary level announced that studies will commence at 10 a.m.
Jewish teachers are demonstrating their "solidarity" with them. So, the leftist union is getting in on the act, too.  Why? To support "religious freedom?" To show the usual support for the Arabs? Solidarity with fellow teachers/soldiers in the Israeli Government's indoctrination forces?

It does not really matter why they are doing ti. It is all the same old, leftist crap, from the frontline pawns in the battle against the Torah.

ערב שבת קודש פר׳ וילך/שבת שובה תשע"ו



noun Yiddish.
the wife of a rabbi.
Also, reb·bitz·in. Unabridged
Based on the Random House Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2013.
And as cliché as including a Wikipedia entry may seem, it makes sense to do so here, especially as it includes a contribution by those who have been mis-educated to misuse this title,...English-speaking "sem" (religious women's school) students. (I have added the red highlighting.)

From Wikipedia...
Rebbitzin (Yiddish: רביצין) or Rabbanit (Hebrew: רַבָּנִית)
The Yiddish word has a trilingual etymology: Hebrew rebbə "master", plus the Slavic feminine suffix -itsa and the German feminine suffix -in.
In many Chassidic courts, Rebbetzins are considered to be spiritual counselors, and give blessings. In circles such as the Chassidic dynasty of Belz, the girls schools are run by the rebbetzin. There are also several recorded instances of female rebbes, who while technically rebbetzins, were full-fledged rebbes in their own right. One such famous case is the Maiden of Ludmir.
The rabbi's wife plays an important community role, especially in small communities. In many ways, she is called on to be as knowledgeable as the rabbi in the realm of woman's observances: in this manner, for something that does not require a psak (ruling), she can be approached when a woman does not feel comfortable approaching the rabbi, or where the rabbi maybe should not be approached. For instance, the rebbetzin may often be the "mikvah lady" and help with more mundane questions regarding the laws of niddah. Part of it, certainly, is that she always has the rabbi's ear, and that she would know if the question needs to be asked, in order to get a psak.
When a rabbi is a "pulpit rabbi," (versus a teacher or a "lay rabbi") his wife becomes something of a first lady of the community and performs social tasks and "outreach" roles, freeing her husband to attend to rabbinical duties.
With the growth of independent scholarship among Orthodox women, some women have informally received the title on their own merit, irrespective of their husbands.
Reviewing the history of the page, I find that the category of "rabbis" was removed in April 2008.
(delete sentence that fails to clarify how this issue relates to the use of the English word rabbi (as against rav)) (undo)

added chassidic rebbitzens- rebbes wifes, July, 2007
 Same day as dreation
(Category:Judaism and women is better)
Created December, 2005 
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
The misapplication of the term "rebbetzin," mostly by English speakers, is a relatively recent phenomenon.

The movement of so-called "modern orthodoxy" in this direction is no surprise.

However, within many English-speaking, Litvak communities, these "rebbetzins" being treated more and more as defacto rabbis, in this is nothing less than the result of feminism and other galuth (exilic) influences, sneaking into these quasi-Haredi communities.

The instruction of men in achieving shalom bayis (peace in the home), directly or indirectly, by "giving his wife whatever she wants," and "told to stick his nose back in a sefer where it belongs" is a major contributing factor to this completely Western and anti-Torah attitude toward women.

Furthermore, simply placating ones wife in this manner, instead of discussing issues of her concern with her, is not in the least bit respectful.

At least in the liberal modern orthodox world, they are straightforward about their Western, "do what they want" attitude about Torah. Find an obscure, if not completely irrelevant, source to support your views, then you're good to go!

Wait a minute. Isn't that the "Conservative" movement?

But, I digress...

I do not blame whoever added this statement of revisionist history to the Wikipedia page. I blame those who educated them, allowing them to believe the feminist notion that "rebbetzin" means defacto female rabbi, instead of "wife of a rabbi."

A "rebbetzin," in addition to being a term of respect and endearment, signifies a women who is not only married to a rabbi, but one who makes it possible for her husband to be involved with Torah, as much as possible.

There are plenty of women who I would and do call "Rebbetzin," and they are all women who do not allow themselves to be called "Rebbetzin" in public.

All of these so-called rebbetzins need to take a lesson in anavah (humility) from these other women.

I do not care how much of their physical bodies are covered up, some of these women also need a serious lesson in tz'ni'uth (modesty), the more important mitzvah (Torah commandment) a woman has.

The Toldos Aharon Rebbetzin is a rebbetzin.

The Belzer Rebbetzin is a rebbetzin.

Shaina Hayah (nee Levine) Eliashiv ztz"l was a rebbetzin.

Brakha Qapah ztz"l, the late widow of Rabbi Yosef Qapah ztz"l, the Yemenite Gadol HaDor was a rabbanith.

A teacher as a "sem" is to be compared to these women?? I have no doubt that their are some righteous and wise women at some of these institutions. But, why are their students being led down this path?

Many of the women who have had this misnomer of a title thrust upon them need to make more of an effort to dissuade their students followers from applying this word inappropriately.

Avi Weiss
Who needs "female rabbi-maker" Avi Weiss, and his egalitarian crap, when this weed's seed was sown ages ago, deep within Western/assimilationist galuth (exile)? 

"some women have informally received the title on their own merit, irrespective of their husbands"


(eyes rolling)

When you think about it, the only difference between some of these so-called "rebbetzins" and the Women of the Wall or Kolech or other such organizations, is that the latter groups of women are open about their feminism.

We should all take this to heart, during these 10 Days of Teshuvah

What will Netanyahu and Obama Really Be Discussing?

ד׳ לחודש השביעי תשע"ו

YNET: Netanyahu to meet Obama in November
PM and US President will meet in Washington on November 9 for the first time since the Iran deal was signed.

Associated Press and Yitzhak Benhorin, 09.16.15

After months of chilly relations, President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet at the White House on November 9, to talk about the Iran nuclear deal that Israel's government has harshly criticized and tried, without success, to block.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the leaders also would discuss efforts to counter ISIS's activities in the Mideast. He called the meeting a demonstration "of the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel, as well as our unprecedented cooperation to further enhance Israel's security."

It will be the first formal meeting between Obama and Netanyahu in months.

Obama pointedly refused to see Netanyahu in March, when the Israeli leader appeared before a joint session of Congress and harshly criticized the US-negotiated nuclear deal with Iran, Israel's enemy. US lawmakers had arranged Netanyahu's appearance without White House input.

Congressional Republicans have failed to block the deal from going forward. The international accord backed by the United States, Iran, and five world powers would curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for relief from sanctions that have undercut Tehran's economy.

The United States has committed to provide more than $7.18 billion in security aid to Israel over the next year. Officials have floated the possibility of signing a new 10-year agreement about US-Israeli security cooperation. But Netanyahu's government has reacted tepidly to that proposal, out of concern that signing such a deal would suggest Israeli acquiescence to the nuclear accord.

Earnest said that two leaders' talks would also include a discussion of "Israel's relations with the Palestinians, the situation in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank and the need for the genuine advancement of a two-state solution."

Israeli police continue to clash with Palestinian protesters at Jerusalem's most sensitive holy site during the Jewish new year holiday of Rosh Hashanah.

US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet in November to discuss the Iran nuclear deal as well as other regional security issues, the White House said on Wednesday.

The Nov. 9 White House meeting will be the first for the two leaders since US-led diplomacy resulted in an Iran nuclear deal that Israel fiercely opposed.

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
What else is there to be discussed about Iran threat to Israel's existence? I believe that Iran's leader has already made his views crystal clear.

"of the deep and enduring bonds between the United States and Israel, as well as our unprecedented cooperation to further enhance Israel's security." 

Seriously? Do I really have to spell this one out? Yes, I guess I do.

If the U. S. has such "deep and enduring bonds" with Israel, then why did it attempt to sign its death warrant with its worthless Iran Deal?

I say attempt, because The Almighty is on our side.

I guess the U. S. Government would like to humiliate Israel even further, and to make it suffer, up until being wiped out by Iran. The funny thing is that I am not so sure that Iran is as adept as Israel at making surgical strikes on its enemies. This begs the question, just how many pseudostinians will be wiped out in the process?

The Iranians and religious pseudostinians do not care, because they think that they will simply end up in Heaven, welcomed as martyrs (חו״ח).

At least the Israeli Government is smart enough, just barely, to react "tepidly" to a 10 year buy into American thralldom. A one year bribe seems to be all it is willing to accept,...for now. And, what exactly does it think it is going to get out of it anyway? More money to be forcibly spent on American products and overpriced military equipment?

Israel should hold out for something much more valuable: a commitment by the U. S. to buy Israeli products, to combat BDS, which Israel claims that it has already begun to feel.

But, I digress...

So, what do I believe will Netanyahu and Obama really be discussing?

Besides Obama trying to pump Netanyahu for information about his meeting with Vladamir Putin, they will be discussing the impending release of Jonathan Pollard, 12 days later on November 21, and its implications for both national leaders.

What secrets does he possess?

What could happen if he reveals them?

How do they work together to keep him quiet?

November 9 = 11/9, or in the rest of the world 9/11.

Gush Etzion: Living in a Bubble!

ד׳ לחודש השביעי תשע״ו

Arutz 7: Yaalon Won't Raze Etzion Bloc Memorial Reserve
Contrary to earlier fears, Minister of Defense wants to legalize Oz Vegaon, not tear it down.


Contrary to earlier fears and reports, Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon wants to legalize the Oz Vegaon memorial nature park at Gush Etzion, not tear it down.

The Head of the Etzion Bloc Regional Council, Davidi Perl, expressed his gratitude Wednesday for the decision by Yaalon to speed up bureaucratic approval of the park near the Etzion Junction, and prevent it from being destroyed.

The site was set up by Women in Green immediately following the terrorist abduction and murder of three teens – Eyal Yifrah, Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Shaar Hy”d – last summer.

"The minister of defense has once again proven that he is a friend of the settlement enterprise,” Perl added. He said that the incident proved that working quietly and directly vis-a-vis the Defense Ministry is the best way to achieve results in Judea and Samaria.

"Together with the security establishment, we will continue to take action toward the quick and quiet legalization of all of Judea and Samaria," he predicted.

MK Oren Hazan (Likud) assisted in preventing the move to tear down the park. “Good news,” he tweeted Tuesday. “Pursuant to my request to the Defense Ministry, at this point the minister's representatives gave a commitment that the Oz Vegaon reserve in memory of the youths hy”d will not be evacuated and a proper solution found.”

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
First off, let me be clear about the murders of Eyal Yifrah, Naftali Frenkel and Gil'ad Sha'ar hy”d. These boys would still be alive, if they had been properly educated, in other words, Jewishly educated.

Eyal Yifrah, Naftali Frenkel, and Gil'ad Sha'ar hy”d
Moshe "Bogie" Ya'alon
Minister of Defense
Politically-incorrect mitzvoth (Torah commandments) such as לא תחנם/"do not have mercy" (Deut. 7:2) are either foreign to Israeli public, religious schools, or distorted to make them more palatable to the Israeli Government's Western Galuth (exile) mindset.

Davidi Perl, Head of the Gush Etzion Regional Council is either blind, naive, a collaborator with the government, like his predecessors 10 years ago during the the expulsion of Jews from Azza (Gaza), or delusional.

Clearly, Defense Minister Ya'alon has thrown the settlers a bone, designed either to give them false hope, reward them for being good little, well-behaved, Jewish boys and girls, and undying loyalists to the State (mamlakhtim), or both.

And besides, how threatening could a nature reserve and park possibly be to the peace piece process?

"Facing Forward Davidi Perl
Regional Head Straight and to the point!"
(Davidi Perl's Campaign Poster)
"...quick and quiet legalization of all of Judea and Samaria?"

How is that "straight and to the point?"


Anyway, the Torah already says its"legal." Did Davidi Perl every think of that?

If the residents of Efrat, Neveh Daniel, Elazar, or Alon Shvuth think their towns are safe from demolition, then they should ask residents of the City of Giv'ath Ze'ev, located in another "safe" block of Jewish towns in Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria), what they think about that....

Times of Israel: PM to push for mandatory minimum sentences for rock-throwers
After fatal Jerusalem attack, Temple Mount violence, Netanyahu to propose legislation at emergency meeting Tuesday

Times of Israel Staff, September 14, 2015

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering fast-tracking legislation that would introduce mandatory minimum sentences for suspects convicted of throwing stones and firebombs.

According to a Channel 2 report, the PM will propose the legislation at an emergency cabinet meeting Tuesday evening, once the Jewish New Year holiday is over. The meeting will address deterrent measures against rock-throwers and will be attended by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein and representatives from the security forces.

The emergency meeting comes after a series of violent incidents over the holiday, including a rock-throwing attack that led to a fatal car crash in Jerusalem Sunday night and riots on the Temple Mount.

The prime minister sees incidents of rock-throwing and firebomb attacks against Israeli citizens as very severe and intends to fight this phenomenon with every available measure including stiffening punishments [for such crimes],” according to a statement released by the Prime Minister’s Office. Alexander Levlovitz, the man who died when he lost control of his car and crashed after terrorists threw rocks at the vehicle in Jerusalem. Levlovitz died early in the hours of Monday morning, the first day of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, on September 14, 2015. (cont.)

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Let us not forget that there are "Arab Israeli" citizens, in addition to Jewish Israeli citizens.

What will happen when there are clashes instigated by Arabs, and Jews have no other way of defending themselves but with rocks? The Jews will be arrested and the Arabs will go free.

How much do you want to bet that if this proposed law law passes, it will be applied differentially to Jews and Arabs. While shady if not absent eye-witness testimony will miraculously convict Jews of rock throwing, Arabs will be easily let off the hook for the same crime?

Gee, I wonder what those rocks are for?
Arab sitting in a mosque on Har HaBayith (Temple Mount).
Border Police police attempted to arrest suspects in the murder of Alexander Levlovitz, and were met with violent resistance on the part of local, Arab residents. Will there ever be a time when Arabs will be let off the hook, for the sake of police safety, while compliant Jews will be hauled in, arrested in the middle of the night?

Already, police have been known to avoid certain Bedouin clans in the Negev, fearing for their lives, thus the Israeli Government gives Bedouins defacto autonomy.

Earlier this year, two police officers were trapped in their vehicle, and on the verge of being lynched, in Rahat. Rahat is an Arab city in the northern Negev. It even has a train station, not what you would call out in the middle of nowhere.

The proposed law is also supported by opposition leaders Tzippy Livni (non-Zionist Camp) and Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid). So, my guess that the legislation will pass, and be spun on both sides of the aisle as a victory, perhaps even hailed as a victory in the struggle for unity.

Meanwhile, Jews will be targeted. But, they will call it a victory anyway.

Before making a new law, maybe the Israeli Government should try enforcing the laws it already has.

Esser Agaroth Year in Review תשע"ה/5775

ג׳ לחודש השביעי תשע״ו

After a long hiatus, I have brought back my annual Top Ten Words and Phrases post, renaming it to the more precise "Year In Review."

Here is a look back at the significant trends of תשע"ה/5775. Let's just that I hope for a much improved תשע"ו/5776.

10. Refugees
Where from Africa or Syria, whether to allow them in to Israel or not, the Israeli Government seems to care more about "refugees," and what they can do to boost its public image and overall standing in the eyes or the "international community," than its own citizens.

Same thing, different word. 'Nuff said.

8. Women of the Wall
Yep! They're still around! The most, simultaneously hysterical and pathetic thing about the Hags of the Wall is that they have no clue that they're just being used as pawns. Unfortunately, they may be successful in convincing some naive, and perhaps disenfranchised Jews, that they represent anything even remotely related to Judaism.

7. BDS
Boycotting, Divesting, and Sanctioning Israel may just be the kick in the pants we need to wake up! Unfortunately, we Jews are too busy whining about it to notice.

Israel is pretty surrounded by ISIS in the Sinai Desert, Azza (Gaza), Syria, and who knows what's going on in Jordan. We also have a suggestion here and there, that ISIS is already in Israel, having either sneaked in from abroad, or just inspired Israeli Arabs to join up via Internet.

ISIS Banner on the Temple Mount
Summer תשע״ד/2014
No doubt, the Israeli government will take advantage of the ISIS threat as a means to show the Israeli public that it needs it to protect them.

Shimon Peres
5. Shimon Peres
Shimon Peres wants to give away parts of our Divinely Promise Land, join together Esau (The West) with Yishma'el (Arabs/Muslims), and encourage our assimilation into Western, "progressive" culture, the antithesis of Torah. Doesn't anyone else see this?

4. Jewish Terrorism
Fatah Emblem
(eyes rolling) Fear mongering by the Israeli government and it loyal minyons trying to scare the public into believing that Torah observant activists are equated with Taliban, Iran, and ISIS, and will take everyone's Western "progressive," assimilation "rights" away if they had the chance. Pseudostinians who kill Jewish babies are "freedom fighters" in the eyes of the world, and in the eyes of many Jews as well. PA President Mahmud Abbas's Fatah Party emblem clearly  shows its ultimate goal for the Land of Israel,...erasing it from the map. But, Jews daring to ask questions about authentic Torah observance are "terrorists."

3. Torah vs. State

This year we have more reports than I can remember regarding the conflicts between Torah Low and Israeli Law. But, instead of talking about the conflict, religious lackeys of the Israeli Government insist on arguing that any conflict between the two does not exist.

2. Iran
Iran still insists on wiping us out, and apparently, so do the U. S. President and Secretary of State.

Maybe it is time to turn for help to the only one who can actually do something to protect us from Iran, and I don't mean any human power either.

1. Meir Ettinger
Meir Ettinger
People see this name, and are scared. Why? Because he is sitting in jail without indictment, conviction or trial, and absolutely no evidence whatsoever of any wrongdoing? Because he wrote some articles? In other countries, one would expect him to be called a "political dissident." However, Meir Ettinger has the wrong religion, the wrong beliefs, and the wrong loyalties for that.

In case you interested in what Meir Ettinger has actually said, and actually believes, you can read it here for yourself, instead of relying on rumors and lies.

Saturday-Sunday Weekend for Israel?

ג׳ לחודש השביעי תשע״ו

Well, the proposed law to create a two-day weekend in Israel has reappeared, yet again.
Arutz 7: New Bill to Make Sunday a Day Off in Israel
Jewish Home MK Yinon Magal suggests making up lost man-hours throughout the week, says extended weekend grants religious equality.

Ido Ben-Porat, 9/9/2015

Jewish Home party MK Yinon Magal has tabled a bill that would make Sunday an official day off in Israel, in a move that is likely to reignite debate over the somewhat controversial topic.

This is not the first time it has been suggested to extend the weekend to Sunday, with previous attempts being shot down by opponents who contend adding to the weekend would seriously harm the Israeli economy.

Currently, weekends in the Jewish state are from Friday-Saturday, the latter of which is the Jewish Sabbath. But while having Fridays off enables religiously-observant Jewish families to adequately prepare for Shabbat, it also means there is no "day off" as there is in other countries, since Shabbat-observant Jews are prohibited from performing many activities such as driving or otherwise traveling long distances, and spend Fridays preparing for Shabbat as opposed to spending time with their families.

Some have also argued that making Sunday a day off would boost the domestic tourism and leisure sector, with Shabbat-observant families freer to enjoy attractions throughout the country. Others have suggested it could even boost Shabbat observance among "traditional" Israelis, who would in theory observe the holy day if they had more time to engage in leisure activities on Sunday.

In a statement, Magal - who is a non-observant Jew - emphasized both the social and economic benefits of his bill, further noting it would provide "equality" between observant and non-observant Jews.

Addressing the question of how the lost working hours to the Israeli economy would be made up - given that observant Jews cannot practically work more than half a day on Fridays - Magal's bill suggests half a days'-worth of hours be made up by extending working hours Monday-Thursday, with the remaining made up by a half-day on Fridays.

"In a state which sanctifies the Sabbath and limits public transportation and sporting events, it is important to advance a day-off on which no citizen feels that their freedom is limited," Magal said.

Jewish Home Anglo Forum Chairman Jeremy Saltan praised the proposed bill.

"Many of us olim miss our Sundays off," he said. "I want to thank Yinon for moving forward with this important issue. I think there is a real chance this time to get it done."
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Standing next to Jewish Home Party Leader Naftali Bennett, wearing his ever shrinking kippah, MK Yinon Magal claims to "love the Torah."

Well, someone needs to remind MK Magal that the Torah includes the commandment to keep Shabbath.

It is not an option; it is a COMMANDMENT, in you HAVE to do it.

Yinon Magal with Naftali Bennett
טבת תשע״ה/December, 2014
Where exactly IS Naftali Bennett's kippah?
Is MK Yinon Magal perhaps suggesting that one may be creative as to how one keeps Shabbath?


The Oral Torah is quite specific as to what is required of Jews to keep Shabbath. Sorry, Yinon Magal, but you cannot say you "love the Torah," and then ignore half of it.

Besides Shabbath, there are mitzvoth such as eating only kosher food, family purity, tefillin, and countless other non-optional commandments, such as not putting a stumbling block in front of other Jews, and even more so, not actively leading them to sin.

When the government allows stores to be open and transportation to run on Shabbath, non-kosher food to be sold in stores and in restaurants, those in the government supporting these policies, such as MK Elazar Stern (Yesh Atid) who should know better, with that kippah on his head, are violating the Torah.

Calling such policies "pluralistic" or "democratic" do not magically make them OK.

And if that was not clear enough for MK Magal, there is no such thing as religious fairness in the Torah. There is truth, and there are lies. Jews are to keep the entire Torah. Non-Jews are to keep seven mitzvoth. There is no in betweens, no compromises. The only pluralism in Torah-observance may be found in our customs alone.

Quite frankly, it also seems that making it easier for Israel's "Christian citizens" to observe their day of rest. That couldn't possibly be because of their "love" for us and their validation of our, could it? What about their money pouring into Israel?

As I recall, the last time this proposal reared its ugly head was in תשע״א/2011, by none other than MK Yariv Levine and kippah-wearing MK Ze'ev Elkin (Likud).
MK Levine explained that the law would enhance Israel’s integration into the global market and synchronize Israel’s trade days with the international standard. The move will also increase private consumption and assist the tourism sector and other services. (Arutz 7)
Another reason which was given for the addition of Sunday as a non-workday was to "help" the religious community.
The initiative would allow Israelis to have a holiday from work on Sundays, while also being able to shop and travel on that day. These things are not possible on Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath, on which Jewish religion forbids all forms of work. They are possible in a limited way on Fridays, because shops and transportation close down early in preparation for the Sabbath. (Arutz 7)
In actuality, though, the above reasons are just code for "let's be more like the goyim." This is in ignorance, or perhaps even in spite of, the countless mandates of the Torah to remain separate from the goyim, when we are talking about the prohibition against marrying them or the prohibition against wearing their clothing, we are to remain separate and distinct, and that includes the observance of goyshe feast days..
המשנה תורה הלכות עבודה זרה פרק ט,ד
הנוצריים עובדי עבודה זרה הן, ויום ראשון יום אידם הוא. לפיכך אסור לשאת ולתת עימהן בארץ ישראל, יום חמישי ויום שישי שבכל שבת ושבת; ואין צריך לומר יום ראשון עצמו, שהוא אסור בכל מקום. וכן נוהגין עימהן, בכל אידיהן.
Mishneh Torah, Laws of Avodah Zarah and Goyim 9:4
The Christians are practitioners of foreign worship. And Sunday is their feast day. Therefore, it is forbidden to negotiate with them in the Land of Israel, any Thursday, Friday, or Shabbath. And there is no need to say Sunday itself, which is forbidden in and out of Israel. And thus we accustomed on all of their feast days.
Even in the U. S., Jews make a point of opening their businesses on Sundays to demonstrate that they are not showing regard for the Christian holiday.

And by the way, not that it matters, but will businesses have to pay their employees Shabbath salaries on Sunday? I hate to think what that will do to Israel's economic growth.

Olim miss their two day weekends, huh? Well, all I can say to that is that you can take the Jew out of Galuth (exile), but you cannot away take the Galuth out of the Jew.

With regards to MK Magal, it is apparent that you can say that you love the Torah of Israel, but not have any clue what Torah really means.

Esser Agaroth Fun with a Jew-Hater on Twitter!

ערב ראש השנה תשע״ו

Well, there I was, minding my own business, when I noticed several new notifications on my
Follow Esser Agaroth on Twitter! @EsserAgaroth Twitter account.

Imagine my shock when I found that I have been added to the following groups!

Actually, I'm just kidding. I wasn't shocked at all. I even "thanked" the Jew-hater Kenneth 'Cha' Mac who added me!

The link I tweeted here is to Debunking Israel's Indigenous Argument, informing him, and everyone else, of the irrelevance of who was in Israel first. But, the Pseudostinians certainly weren't. That's for sure!

Then I noticed the cross in his mouth and next to his Twitter profile name. I just couldn't help myself. So, I tweeted a link to Disproving Christianity in 10 minutes to him. Before posting these screen shots of our Tweeting extravaganza, I erased part of the cross next to his username. I didn't want that avodah zarah (foreign worship) crap displayed on my site.


The link I tweeted in response to his "Wheres" tweet is to this graphic. I included the Torah verses here, as well. Granted, this is only one of many sources of The Almighty's promise of Eretz Yisra'el (Land of Israel) to the Jewish People. But, as I tweeted above, it is one of my favorites!

"In that day the Lord made a covenant with Avram, saying: 'To your seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates.' the Kenite, and the Kenizzite, and the Kadmonite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Rephaim, and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Girgashite, and the Jebusite.'" (Genesis 15:18-21)

I suppose that his query here is a reference to waiting from Mashi'ah (Messiah) to come and do everything for us. My response speaks for itself.

This was my last back-and-forth with Kenneth 'Cha' Mac, as soon afterwards, he blocked me.

I'm so upset! NOT!

And, don't think I'm removing myself from those groups either. I'm not one of those sissy Hasbara Jews. I don't give a rat's tuchus as to what the goyim think of me, my people, or my homeland. Sounds like a great publicity tool to me, don't you think?

Well, after this exchange on Twitter, it is only appropriate to wish everyone a שנה טובה ומתוקה/ Shannah Tovah u'Methuqah, a Good and Sweet Year, with an re-posting of Lehava's own blessing. Lehava is an organization which works against Jewish assimilation, including intermarriage. (Tip: former MK Micha'el Ben-Ari).

One of the symbolic foods eaten by Jews on Rosh HaShannah is the תמר/tamar (date). Its sound tamar similar to the Hebrew verb tam (to finish), it is eaten with the following blessing.

יהי רצון מלפניך ה' אלהינו ואלוהי אבותינו שייתמו אויבינו ושונאינו וכל מבקשי רעתנו
May it be Your Will, Lord our God, and the God of our Fathers that our enemies, and haters, and all who request evil for us be finished!

IDF Urban Warfare Training: Preparing for ISIS

מוצש״ק פר׳ נצבים תשע״ה

YNET: Caracal fighters training for ISIS incursion
Amid the rising threat of a coordinated ISIS attack from Sinai, the mixed-gender battalion has begun training on complex urban warfare scenarios like those they may face after an ISIS attack.

Yoav Zitun, 09.09.15

Where and when will ISIS in Sinai act against Israel? The Israeli Intelligence community has been struggling to provide a real answer to this question in the last year. The reasons are varied – the ISIS branch operating out of Sinai is quite compartmentalized, and spread throughout a massive desert territory. They have no permanent training base, and use local Bedouin smugglers to operate in the border area. In any case, in order to prepare for the possibility of an attack, the mixed gender Caracal battalion has begun training in urban warfare.

In the face of this reality, military intelligence has been pouring resources into building a better intelligence picture of the organization which calls itself "Ansar Bait al-Maqdis," and although a whole department in the Shin Bet was established for this specific purpose in the wake of the revolution in Egypt, the Southern Command has been preparing for the worst case scenario. These scenarios include ISIS attacks on the Nitzana and Kerem Shalom crossing, or on the Israeli towns and villages near the northern portion of the Israeli/Egyptian border.

Dozens of terrorists are expected to partake in such an attack, which will most likely take place as part of a larger military-like operation, similar to the attacks conducted against Egyptian military outposts in the last year which caused the deaths of dozens of Egyptian police officers and soldiers. The coordinated attacks on the Egyptian army included attempts to capture swaths of urban terrain in northern Sinai.

A tall fence, which spans 220 kilometers on the border, is only expected to delay any strategic attack of the type planned by ISIS, which the Southern Command deems a "military operation" for all intents and purposes. As such, the fence is merely an element of the broader IDF readiness. The IDF's Caracal battalion, which is permanently charged with protecting a large swath of the Egyptian border area, took part in urban warfare training similar to that of other IDF infantry units, for the first time since its establishment.

As such, IDF officials believe that the mixed gender battalion – which includes male and female fighters, can do battle quickly and efficiently inside of Israeli towns or villages in the case of an ISIS incursion. The thinking within the Edom brigade, which is responsible for the border, is that the first responders to arrive on the scene of such an attack, like others which have taken place in recent years, will be the Caracal fighters who are responsible for the regional section, but whose training has never included urban warfare.

The first class of Caracal fighters recently trained on clearing buildings at the Kziot base, while using pyrotechnic effects which simulated live fire and grenades. In addition to the urban warfare training, the fighters practiced camouflage and observation techniques against militant forces across the border.

The command recently set concrete barriers along the border, in an attempt to disrupt anti-tank missile fire. Tank ambushes are also used by the Edom brigade in complex situations.

According to a deputy company commander in the battalion, Lt. Oren Pasan, "The region here is not similar to the West Bank, there you constantly feel the tension, which helps maintain a high level of operational readiness, and as such we hold as many simulated attack exercises as possible."

The Caracal company commander, Captain Chosa Levin, knows that she may be the first person to meet the armed fighters from the most ruthless terror organization on the planet, and will have to lead her troops in order to end any such incursion with a good outcome. "I don’t know when the next attack will happen. We are stronger than our enemy, but we still prepare for the worst case scenario."

Among the battalion's fighters there are several religious female fighters, as well as fighters from Dimona's Israelite community.

The ISIS branch in Sinai, which was established in 2010 by Al Qaeda, and pledged allegiance to the Islamic State last year, is estimated to maintain 2,000-3,000 fighters armed with trucks and advanced weaponry including Kornet anti-tank missiles, and shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles.

In contrast to the Islamic state, which rules over a swath of territory containing seven million people in Iraq and Syria, the Sinai Branch has yet to show signs of territorial aspirations, apparently due to the Egyptian army's firm opposition to the group.

The Sinai branch has only recently carried out its first "ISIS style" execution, when it beheaded a Croatian citizen.

Ironically, it was only after "Ansar Bait al-Maqdis" became an ISIS affiliate, that it began attacking Egyptian army positions, and as a result Israel was temporarily left out of their crosshairs. Before the transition the Al-Qaeda group had conducted several attacks against Israel starting in 2011.

Two months ago, fighters from ISIS in Sinai managed to set an Egyptian combat ship ablaze after striking it with an anti-tank missile two miles from the shore, near Egyptian Rafah.

1. The threat of ISIS from the Sinai. The threat of ISIS infiltration through Syria, and peripherally through Northern Jordan has been mentioned in previous reports. But, what about from Jordan as a whole? That we are all of a sudden BFF's, and giving them helicopters?

2. The need to improve Egyptian border defense. Now you know one of the reasons we have all of these infiltrators from Africa on our hands.

3. Mixed gender combat units. Of course, there was not any mention of increased, nor the rabbi convicted of I still do not know what, for pointing this and other Torah prohibitions of the IDF out, and blaming then IDF Chief Rabbi Yisra'el Weiss. So much for "democratic freedom of speech." In Israel, it is more like deMOCKratic.

4. Israel's acceptance of the Black Non-Hebrew insurgents as "Israelites." (See #3 above).
However, I am not going to mention any of these here. Rather, I would like to focus on the mention of "urban warfare training."

It is not uncommon for "other IDF infantry units" to engage in urban warfare training, in preparation for engaging Arab terrorists in towns, such Shchem, Jenin, and Azza (Gaza). There are some urban areas in northern Sinai, but the Caracal Battalion has not had any previous "urban warfare training."

This begs the following questions...
1. If the threat of an ISIS invasion is so daunting, then why not bring in a battalion with more experience in urban warfare. Internal IDF fighting over territory? Or will other more experienced battalions be needed elsewhere?

2. If the closest urban areas to Israel's Egyptian border are in northern Sinai, does this mean that the Caracal Battalion will be preparing to cross into Egyptian territory?

3. The timing of the Caracal Battalion's "urban warfare training" at the close of the U. S. government's Jade Helm 15 urban exercises in nine of its states is too coincidental. Are we seeing a trend here?
4. Are we really going to believe that the IDF's urban warfare skills will be limited to the Sinai? Don't be surprised if you start hearing about the threat of ISIS in YOUR local urban area, such as Ashqelon, Be'er Sheva, or even Jerusalem.

Stay tuned!
