Determination and Deliverance

14 year old Hagar Haivri was arrested while sleeping on a hike in what had been the Jewish town of Sa-Nur. She was forbidden from contacting her father for a week and her parents were not even allowed into the court room. When he attempted to do so he was brutally beaten and then arrested and charged with damaging the courtroom door. Her last name, "Ha'Ivri" means "The Hebrew" which was how Pharaoh reffered to the Jews when he ordered the midwives to attend 'Be'Yaldechen Ha'Ivriot,' 'At the Hebrew Birthings,' to kill the sons and let the daughters live in captivity. As Pharaoh ordered Jewish children cast into the river, Sharon orders them cast into prison. A number of other young girls with her who were on the hike ranging from 14 to 16 years of age are still imprisoned. Our tradition holds that Yosef was freed from his Egyptian prison on Rosh Hashana. As Rosh Hashana approaches consider the fate of the children locked up by the Sharon r

Always Escalate the Violence

Over the body of a Jerusalem man murdered by Hamas terrorists reveling in their new land and accompanied by the fall of rockets and shells on Israeli towns, Sharon has once again battled his way to a narrow victory. The thug who began his career beating Etzel members, the loyal men fighting for Israel who were to form the Likud, on behalf of his Mapai patrons, who lied and deceived three Prime Ministers. Whose deceits and destructiveness brought down the government of Menachem Begin, leader of Etzel, ending the original Likud revolution. Who in 1990 at the Likud Convention destabilized Shamir's government paving the way for Rabin's victory and the Oslo accords. Who sent soldiers and police to beat men, women and children and drag them out of their homes to be handed over to terrorists. Over the ruins of corpses and imprisoned children, of bulldozed homes and torched synagogues Sharon once again celebrates his narrow margin of victory. This protege of Ben Gurion, who has done mo

9 Wounded in Gaza Attacks, Sharon Threatens Hamas with Ad Campaign

40 rockets hit Sderot and West Negev injuring 9 shutting down schools in Sderot for the forseeable future Israel has now had to go back in and carry out multiple air strikes in Gaza and the cabinet has approved a resumption of artillery attacks and targeted assasinations but ruled out a ground campaign These tactics that have proven useless against Hizbullah whose MO Hamas is copying right down to plans to kidnap Israeli soldiers will now be used against Hamas with results just as useless Now that Sharon has stated that Israel will not be sending in ground forces which lets Hamas know they can operate freely on the ground and that they have nothing serious to worry about as long as they avoid the air strikes Sharon has appealed to America to put a stop to the rocket attacks and Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice asked Abbas to put a stop it it and Abbas asked Rice to tell Israel to stop bombing Gaza Defense Minster Mofaz has said the response needs to be crushing and so Sharon's ca

Suicide Bomber Barbie

" I think Palestinian moms want their children to grow up in peace just like American moms want their children to grow up in peace." George W. Bush " While the other images are dressed with the usual fashionable clothes, bags and small puppy, two "Suicide Dolls" can be seen with bomb belts around their waists and a detonator switch in their hands. One of them is even holding a bag containing nails and explosive materials ."

Further Destruction of Jewish Communities planned

Another trial balloon has been sent up and the original proponent of the expulsion of the Jews of Gush Katif has announced a second plan for another wave of expulsions of communities and towns in which 20,000 Jews reside. Even as the American aid to pay for it will not be forthcoming, as the Egyptian border has become an open arms trafficking zone and Hamas is building its presence in Gaza; the wicked seek to do ever more wickedness to these communities.

From 1936 to 2006 - Can it happen here in America?

The extermination of a people begins with its deligitimization through propaganda that holds as an article of faith that a people have no right to exist. We see such things in the Muslim world. Some say we see them in Europe. Most will say we do not see any such thing here. Or do we? Courtesy of CAMERA , this is a sample of what major US and British news media outlets reported about the torching of Synagogues in Gush Katif. "Palestinians came streaming to the settlements that caused them so much pain, to sightsee and to loot. Israel stole thirty-eight years from them; today, many were ready to take back anything they could." " This structure behind me --very controversial because it is the Jewish synagogue in the middle of Netzarim. The Israeli cabinet, of course, voting to leave those synagogues standing, very much angering the Palestinian Authority, because they know that these buildings are seen very much by the vast majority of Palestinians as potent symbol

Muslim sees Allah in Ice Cream, declares Burger King Jihad

"The fast-food chain, Burger King, is withdrawing its ice-cream cones after the lid of the dessert offended a Muslim. The man claimed the design resembled the Arabic inscription for Allah, and branded it sacrilegious, threatening a "jihad". The chain is being forced to spend thousands of pounds redesigning the lid with backing from The Muslim Council of Britain. It apologised and said: "The design simply represents a spinning ice-cream cone." The offending lid was spotted in a branch in Park Royal last week by business development manager Rashad Akhtar, 27, of High Wycombe. He was not satisfied by the decision to withdraw the cones and has called on Muslims to boycott Burger King. He said: "This is my jihad. How can you say it is a spinning swirl? If you spin it one way to the right you are offending Muslims." A Muslim Council spokesman said: "We commend the sensitive and prompt action that Burger King has taken."

Bullies, Politics and the Crippling of America

Did you ever walk to school with a couple of friends only to be accosted by the school bully ? Now, there are three of you against one nasty bully. Great odds!! You three can take him. Alas, it does not work that way. One will stand up and say," if we get together we can vanquish the bully". The other two will whimper and say, "shhh, don't. You will make him madder" Now, if kid number one, the innovator, insists on taking action, the other two will turn on him and make him the enemy. As a matter of fact , he will become to them more of an enemy than the bully ever was. So the bully continues and excuses are made for him so as not to "rile him up". Lots of bullys in the world today. But the world has myopia and does not see them clearly anymore. We have become a nation that blames the victim just as in the case of the school bully. Rape victims are blamed for dressing provacatively, the US is blamed for being a bit upset about 9 11 and the death of seve

Our Feet Will Stand!

Amid strife there is hope. Tehillim 122 A song of Ascents; of David. I rejoiced when they said unto me: "Let us go unto the House of the Eternal" Our feet are standing within your gates, O Yerushalayim; Yerushalayim that is built as a city compacted together; Whither the tribes went up, even the tribes of the Eternal, as a testimony unto Israel, to give thanks unto the Eternal's name. For there are thrones for judgment , thrones for the house of David. Pray for the peace of Yerushalayim, may they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces. For my brothers and companions sake I will now say: "Peace be within you" For the sake of the house of the Eternal our G-d I will seek your good . Notice it says our feet "are" standing. This is because with G-d it is a sure thing. Israel is beset within and without by enemies who wish her downfall. But we have read the final chapters of the book and we win! Stand proud and s

A Synagogue in Westchester and a Synagogue in Israel

When a Synagogue is torched in Westchester it's viewed as a hate crime. The police are called in and investigations begin. The newspapers write editorials condemning the acts and calling for stiff punishments. Major Jewish organizations join in calling for stronger penalties and legislation and bemoaning the crime. When a Synagogue in Israel is torched, it's described as a protest against the Israeli occupation and treated with indifference. Not merely by the media, which is expected to take the sides of the terrorists against the terrorized, with Knight Ridder even falsely reporting that it was in retaliation for Israel's destruction of the Al Aqsa Mosque, an even that never took place; but by Jewish organizations which have surprisingly little to say on the subject. The same major Jewish organizations who funded the sale of the greenhouses to the Palestinians which they then promptly torched and animal rescues (but not human rescues in Gush Katif) are busy putting out op-

Scientists say Hurricanes are Racist

The League of Spurious Scientists today issued a statement declaring that hurricanes unfairly target minorities and demanding that the federal government step in to end hurricane hate crimes. The League which had previously sued rain for falling more often on minority parts of the planet and snowstorms for inflicting colds on Harlem, will now go after bigger targets. The League has also announced plans to pursue and bring to justice earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes and other natural disasters that they say selectively and unfairly target minorities. In statistics compiled by the League, global natural disasters happened more often in parts of that world that didn't speak English as opposed to parts of the world that did. Declaring that since civil rights groups had accused every living being on earth of racism, it was time to accuse the earth itself of being racist. The only solution they say is affirmative action on other planets.

Times defends torching Synagogues as 'Protests against Occupation"

" Thousands of Palestinians swarmed into the forsaken settlements and youths set fire to synagogues and other symbols of the hated occupation ," the London Times said lyrically describing the scene as arab looters ravaged the remains of the ethnically cleansed Jewish towns. When Baghdad was looted, the media treated it as a terrible crime. When a mosque somewhere is scribbled on, it's treated as a hate crime and an attack on our society and jail time is demanded. But burning Jewish Houses of Prayer is described as a legitimate way of protesting the 'occupation.' How soon before the media begins to defend not merely the burning of synagogues in Gush Katif but the burning of synagogues in America and Europe as legitimate forms of protest?

US throws out the law, asks courts to use 'any available means' to save PLO

"Siding against the family of a young married couple murdered by Hamas, the Bush administration yesterday urged a federal court in New York not to evict the Palestinian Liberation Organization's observer mission to the United Nations from its Upper East Side headquarters. "In consideration of the strong foreign policy interests at stake here, the United States asks that the Court dismiss this matter on any available legal ground ," stated the 30-page document, which was dated September 12 and signed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Danna Drori." It's somewhat shocking to see government this blatantly toss away any pretense at the law and justice and simply state openly that they don't care how it's done but that they're determined to protect the PLO terrorists by any means necessary. This is typical of the way successive US administrations, Democrat and Republican, have closed their eyes to the crimes of the terrorists and sided with the terrorist

Palestinians burn Morag Synagogue

As Israel retreats on September 11th from Gush Katif joining one tragedy and victory of Islam with another and leaving the Palestinians to loot and burn the settlements; Hamas, the PLO and Islamic Jihad terrorists and all the other murderers, thieves and looters of the Palestinian territories gratefully thank Ariel Sharon, Shinui, Labor and United Torah Judaism. Next year in Jerusalem. "Late Sunday, Israeli troops had lowered their national banner in Neve Dekalim, once the largest Jewish settlement in Gaza. They snapped farewell pictures and closed army headquarters, which were left intact for use by the Palestinians. Triumphant Palestinian troops accompanied by cheering, flag-waving crowds took control of abandoned Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip. Fireworks lit up the sky, Palestinian gunmen fired in the air in celebration and crowds set fire to the synagogue in the abandoned Morag settlement, closest to Palestinian towns. In another synagogue, gunmen climbed on the roof and

Decision on demolishing Houses of Prayer scheduled for 9/11

In yet another of the bitter ironies the decision on whether to demolish the houses of prayer remaining behind in Gush Katif after their worshipers were expelled is to come on September 11, the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. As America remembers the ruins of the World Trade Center, the corrupt Sharon regime will contemplate creating new ruins. Or perhaps after having brutalized and driven away the worshipers of the houses of G-d, Sharon will mercifully leave them empty and abandoned. The dust and rubble and the ashes of those murdered by Muslims on September 11 were dumped into the Staten Island Fresh Kills landfall, undoubtedly a similar place is predestined for the rubble of the synagogues of Gush Katif on land turned over to our Muslim enemies. Both 9/11 and the withdrawal represent retreats in the face of Islam's murderous ideology. America ignored the warnings about Arab terrorists operating in the tri-state area despite a pattern of attacks including even the bombing of

Ruins in Context

Ruins of the Twin Towers, the Tower of David and Neveh Dekalim in Gush Katif

Landscapes of Loss

A new 9/11 anniversary comes and how will it be remembered. The surge of patriotism, the ideal of our nation as a sleeping giant arising to defend itself against an evil Islamic enemy was squandered as we now bury ourselves in policework in Iraq to build a country whose adopted constitution already states that no law may contradict the laws of Islam. The numbers of the dead are likely to be topped by the casualties from Hurricane Katrina and if there is anything the two events have in common, it's that government incompetence contributed to the death tolls and the recognition that in disaster management we have learned little in the intervening four years. To look across the country is to see a landscape of loss. From the gulf coast to new york, from the families of dead soldiers across the nation to the families of those far away yet still living, a lot has been given and little received in return. What gains we have made, have been squandered. The obscenity of the Internation

Reuters rewrites American history again

In an article on Mexican troops entering the US to provide aid, Reuters proceeds to rewrite American history yet again. Two quotes. "A 44-vehicle convoy of 200 unarmed troops flew Mexico's red, white and green national flag from every cab as it moved into San Antonio, where Mexican forces killed 189 rebels in the famous Battle of the Alamo in 1836 during the Texas revolution against Mexican rule." "The last time a Mexican military force of any type was in the United States was when revolutionary Gen. Francisco "Pancho" Villa staged a small raid into New Mexico in 1916. His forces killed several people, prompting Washington to send a larger force south of the border in retaliation." So the Texans fighting for independence were 'rebels' but Pancho Villa's murderous raids onto US soil which killed numerous civilians were revolutionary. The Alamo is rewritten from an American last stand to a Mexican victory over some unnamed rebels and Pancho

Katina and 9/11 - Government Failures and Individual Successes

If there is one point of commonality in all the comparisons made between the attacks of September 11th and Katrina's devastation, it is that individuals once again succeeded where governments failed. On 9/11, the government, city, state and federal, all failed utterly. The federal government failed to fight terrorism properly either at home or abroad and did nothing to act on the information they had or to even process the information they had. The city government contributed little even positioning the city's emergency command bunker in the WTC, despite the fact that it had already been attacked once. The radios used by firemen did not work properly inside the towers and the rebuilding of the towers has been badly blown. Face to face with Katrina, the city, state and federal governments failed yet again. The evacuation was botched and mishandled leaving many inside the city. The supposed safety of the dome instead became a nightmare as tens of thousands were placed inside

Shabbat Shalom and Hope

In times of trouble its good to remember that Hashem does indeed sit on His Throne and is in charge of all things. His promises are not in vain and His sovereignty is sure. As Shabbat approaches we need to remember all those who are suffering now, from those forcibly thrown out of homes in Gaza to those suffering now in the southern USA, and ask our G-d to have mercy and to forgive us and to bring this weary world the peace it so desperately needs. If ever there was a time to pray with kevana, it is now. May we all merit Geulah soon.
