“Foxtrot” is Treason
     September 19, 2017 - 5:18 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…And so it is fitting that Rosh HaShana commemorates the birth of Adam and Eve and the birth of good and evil. For gentiles, New Year’s is a day for getting drunk and acting silly. For Jews, it is Judgment Day, when the focus is on the evil we have done, though I doubt Israeli filmmaker Samuel Maoz will use the day to repent his Israel-bashing film called “Foxtrot” in whose glory he is basking among the gentiles in the international film community. It appears he is a soulmate of Yehoshua Sobel the playwright, for this film has at its center a massacre of Ancient Palestinians by IDF soldiers, whose superiors help them cover up their crime – something – fasten your seatbelts – that has never happened in fifty years of Jewish rule in Judea and Samaria. And that this “artiste” made this film is, if not secular legal terms treason, it is a form of spiritual treason in my book…

Why Israel Has No Constitution
     September 17, 2017 - 5:45 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…From the mid-1930s to the mid-1970s, a Biblical generation of forty years, the return to Zion was dominated by Zionists who ironically preferred to be called that rather than Jews.

Palestine, brought to life as a jurisdiction, was the Zionists’ greatest pride and joy because then they could call themselves Palestinians, and not Jews. As my book exposes, during most of those 40 years, no Arab would be caught dead calling himself a Palestinian, not when their leader was Haj Amin who denied there was such a country.

They had for a banner the Shield of David, mistranslated into English Star of David, who was a warrior, a lover and a poet, which pleased the first Zionists but not his religiosity, the content of his poems.

On their flag, they placed it between two stripes calling to mind the stripes on a prayer shawl, and in both cases they, so to speak, embezzled Jewish religious symbols because they themselves were without religion. In a way, the flag of Israel is a kind of copyright infringement…

Haredim and the Army
     September 14, 2017 - 3:15 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…It is commonplace that the Haredim opposed Zionism because the Messiah had to come first. Yes, but that is just a surface, initial cause. On a deeper level, they rightly experienced the Zionists as less saviors of the Jewish people than antagonists bent on leaving them behind. For Israelis like these — I almost married one — she was adamant that she was not a Jew but an Israeli. For her, raised in a communist family in Israel, Judaism was the opiate of the masses. She did not believe in Christianity and so was not a Christian, she said, and did not believe in Judaism, so don’t call her a Jew…

Whither Trump?
     September 12, 2017 - 6:59 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…During the American invasion of Iraq in 2003, Harold Rhode of the State Department discovered this store of objects in Saddam’s secret police offices. It had been flooded in a fire but much was salvageable, work that thanks to Rhode was done in the States.

And now the State Department wants to follow through on an agreement with the Iraqi government over ownership of this archive and return it to Iraq where no Jews live any more; return it to the successor regime of a criminal thief, Saddam and his minions, who plain and simple confiscated all these materials will all the guilty conscience of their marauding Bedouin armed highwaymen forebears.

Jewish groups are howling and rightly so at the thought that the US is going ahead with sending these stolen goods belonging to the Jewish people back to the successor regime that stole them…

Israel’s Unpatriotic Movies
     September 10, 2017 - 6:12 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…No, in the mid-19th century of Darwin, Huxley, Spencer and Marx, the Jews were dubbed a race, when that plainly is false. Israel today is arguably the most racially mixed state in the world, created over 150 years by Jews coming here from over 100 countries and showing that in their appearance. All colors of the skin, hair textures, shape of the eyes. There have always been converts and I have prayed in minions with people who started life as Ethiopians, Burmese and Peruvian Indians.

Yet what is the central accusation of our time? Israelis are racists toward the Ancient Palestinians, the real, authentic national owners of Palestine, evidence just this week in yet another Israeli-made movie that took second prize at the Venice Festival, another one bashing IDF soldiers, which of course contradicts and attacks the national ethos in Israel as having the most moral army in the world…

The War for the Sabbath
     September 7, 2017 - 8:48 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…But before signing off for the evening and the week, I must contribute my view on a current news story, the 40th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece, in my opinion, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, which I consider his most Jewish movie. Munich was certainly not.

And why is Close Encounters Jewish? Well, some of the movie critics’ opining on the anniversary and the remastering and digitalizing of the original print have commented on the mystical, spiritual atmosphere of this UFO story.

But what I see is probably an unconscious plagiarizing of the Torah miSinai. Every year when we read Parashas Yisro, Exodus 20,, the giving of the Ten Utterances, we are treated to a powerful description of the descent onto Mt. Sinai of HaShem preceded by clouds above a mountain top which the Israelites are warned not to climb.. Which is the same directive in Close Encounters. The army cordons over the Devil’s Tower — ponder that name for a moment — which a few people in the movie have been mysteriously drawn too, their minds imprinted with its outline and an uncontrollable drive to reach this place.

The lead, played by Richard Dreyfuss and others like him, are summoned to this place by a force they do not know. When they escape their handlers to run toward the mountain, the cartographer, played by Bob Balaban, wants them to go, shouting, “They’ve been invited!”

And when the spaceship descends in all it majesty, it is like the descent of HaShem on Mt. Sinai before His chosen people.

Not that Spielberg is an observant Jew but does have vague, childhood memories of being in the company of relatives who via his description sound like Haredim/Hasidim.

Everyone who has seen this movie experiences the religiosity in play as man finds out that in the universe, he is not alone, and the powers that be are not hostile, as in HG Wells War of the Worlds. They are benevolent…

The Immortal War Against the Jews
     September 5, 2017 - 5:56 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…And in the art world these days, such as it is, the world of the post-religious left, Israel is the bad guy in the Israeli-Palestinian relationship, and that apparently is on view in this latest Israeli production.

Not surprisingly, Ministress of Culture Miri Regev, and not for the first time, blasted her disapproval. She said she has no problem with movies critical of Israel but she will not support those that “defame IDF soldiers.” And for sure her decades as a high career officer in the IDF are the basis of her defense against those who defame our soldiers who give their lives to defend us from arguably the most monstrous human beings in the world, these homicidal Muslim maniacs who in their universe dominated by Satan they think the height of religious piety is entering a Jewish house with a big knife and plunging into the bodies of Jews to kill them.

That any Israeli moviemaker makes a film defaming Israeli soldiers before he makes a film of what monsters the terrorists are who embitter our lives all the time is a disgrace…

Israel, the Source of Morality
     September 3, 2017 - 7:33 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Last item. The American TV comedian, who never once made me laugh — each to his own, I guess — Conan O’Brien has been here doing a film on Israel, in support one hopes, and last week he was up in Tsfat in the hospital in the Ziv Medical Center and saw how wounded Syrian civilians are treated by the medical staff, social workers and others with respect. After he saw the TLC these people get at Israeli expense, he told the staff “You all deserve a Noble Peace Prize.”

Of course. But the world is still largely antiJew in its hostility.

I have thought that another candidate for the Nobel Prize is We settlers, the hated settlers, who have been mauled and massacred, murdered and mutilated, whole families machine-gunned to death in the family car in drive-by shootings, or stabbed to death in the beds, or at the Sabbath table, without responding in kind. If we were not Jews, any other people, I think, would have responded in kind and organized raiding parties into Arab settlements to murder Arabs at random in their homes, G-d forbid. And there is no greater testament to the Jewish people, the sons of Abraham the Kind, that we have never done that. We deserve the Nobel Prize for Peace, not Rabin, Peres and Arafat…

Keeping Israel Jewish
     August 31, 2017 - 7:03 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…This is the eternal tug of war in Israel, really within the Jewish people in every generation. The temptation to live without the commandments, the obligations of Jews in the universe according to the Torah. In so many ways, the world remains wholly ignorant of, the Oslo peace process abomination fiasco as an acting playing out of this bloodless war. The drive to award Judea and Samaria to the murderers in the PLO was very much an aggression against Jewishness and its special connection to these territories. Oslo, the product of hard leftists like Rabin, Peres, Beilin, Pundak and Hirschfeld, was a drive to deprive the expanding National Religious community of the heart of the Promised Land at the same time that Israel’s classical, anti-religious leftist elite was dying because its values left nothing to teach the next generation…

The Enemy Within
     August 29, 2017 - 5:51 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Notice too in his comment, something interesting that reminded me the war in Viet Nam. It was the Communist North’s commander in chief Giap who said that among the most important allies in the war against America were the anti-war protestors in the States. And what Guterres is saying here is that his views, the views of enlightened humanity in the UN organization, are nothing but the views your pro-Palestinians, who are anti-Israeli, anti-Zionist, ultimately antiJew who daily fill the pages of the Haaretz, soul-sister publication of the New York Times for its hostility to true, religious Jewishness and the world’s only, tiny, independent Jewish state in a part of the Holy Land, with the Enlightened accusing Israelis of having too much land, and the Arabs not enough…

Cowardice and Conscience
     August 27, 2017 - 6:56 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…That was the Israeli Left still at the helm in 1967, and it is forgotten by contemporary Israeli Leftists that the Whole Land of Israel Movement as it was called, the policy of keeping all the land taken in the fighting, was largely the work of the artists and intellectuals of the Left who were moved by the miraculous, sudden return to these Biblical sites that had been the intellectual backbone of the Jewish people and their religion.

This is one reason why no Israeli leader, all of them secular, have ever pounded the lectern at the UN and quoted the legendary American folk singer Woody Guthrie, saying, “This land is my land. This land is our land. From the uplands hills of Samaria and Judea to the coastal plain, this land was promised to me and my people. And not only that: the League of Nations in 1922 said as much when it described this land as the historic homeland of the Jewish people…

The PA as NGO
     August 24, 2017 - 7:41 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Since the Palestinian Authority, this massive welfare scam, is built on the fantasy of a Palestinian people, it is no surprise that these poorly educated sons and grandsons of illiterate Bedouin marauders have no new ideas about the future. They said that without a “political horizon” — this was Shimon Peres’s euphemism for being paid off with independence in Judea and Samaria — there is no point in continuing as the PA.

They never have anything constructive to say. It is always just whining and demanding and threatening and insulting Israel. The PA is nothing but another NGO supported by world antiJewry who believe in the right of Balestinians to kill Jews because the Jews stole their country from them.

The Palestinian Authority is one big welfare scam…

Trump’s Speech and a New Lexicon
     August 22, 2017 - 6:50 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…But the worrisome aspect of his speech was the setting of the bar too high when he strives to crush Islamic terrorism in Afghanistan. I wonder in his military prep school classes they ever discussed historic generals and their strategies for their conquests, but when it came to Afghanistan, none of them succeeded. Look at the Soviets in the 1980s finding in Afghanistan who were ultimately routed like every other empire that tried to conquer this country.

So it was good that Trump the realist has no woolly-headed nonsense in his head about nation-building, but not good if he thinks he can crush Islamic terrorism in that country. Has there ever been a century since the 7th when Muslims were not attacking one another?

Rejecting the Promised Land Today
     August 20, 2017 - 6:34 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Last Thursday in Israel, we were treated to another episode in the endless soap opera of the Jewish people refusing to possess the land of Israel, in particular Judea, its most Jewish territory. Like the generation of the desert that did not want to enter the Promised Land, the Jews in the State of Israel for fifty years now have never even voiced the desire to keep all the land taken in the Six Day War as of right. It has been the Israeli ethos since then, shared by the great middle of the people, that Judea and Samaria can be used to buy peace. The two-state solution is the fantasy that Israel can buy peace by evacuating Judea and Samaria. It has been the dream of centrist Israelis to sell back, so to speak, Judea and Samaria but of course not all of it. And the fantasy continues that the Arabs will eventually go along with that. They will accept the fact that not all of what was lost in 1967 will be returned; they will in exchange for most of Judea and Samaria, turn into friendly, cooperative neighbors. Peace will blanket the land…

Enemies of Jewishness
     August 17, 2017 - 8:31 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Wasn’t that a weird chant those deranged Jew-haters in Charlottesville were chanting? “We will not let the Jews replace us.” Now what could that mean?

It means Jews will outlive us and we will disappear from history. Our lifestyle of hatred is the enemy of the Jews.

What separates Israelis and Ishmaelites is the human capacity for compassion for others even to those who belong to our mortal enemies.

This is not the Muslim way. This is the civilized way and the inner barbarian in antiJews to this very day hates us for that…

The Meaningless Rumble in VA
     August 15, 2017 - 6:37 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…There are several important facets of this latest outrage, the violence in Charlottesville, and President’s Trump initial, unscripted and clumsy statement. And the first frightening feature is the magnification of the importance of these gang members on both sides of the violence. I mean, neither side, Nazis and other white supremacists vs. the self-styled anti-Fascists, is representative as far as I know of not one microscopic percentage of the American people. I mean, who are these people who above all hunger for violence and cloak hunger in some kind of cartoon, crackpot political theory?

I do not believe this gang fight is representative of American society…

Gaza the Bloodsucking Leech
     August 13, 2017 - 6:25 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Last week Frank Gaffney, erstwhile Deputy Secretary of Defense now of the Center for Security Policy called for McMaster’s dismissal. And the post last week by Daniel Greenfield on McMaster was comprehensive. He has gutted the National Security Council of backers of the foreign policy of Donald Trump who were appointed by his predecessor Michael Flynn. McMaster has restored Obama era appointees to prominence. Gaffney said Trump opposed virtually every aspect of the McMaster agenda, including the concept of “radical Islamic terrorism” The Lieutenant General has more tolerant views of the Muslim Brotherhood.

But the clincher for me, as for Gaffney, is the revelation that McMaster, appointed in February, personally granted in April a predecessor in the position, Susan Rice, continued access to top secret information.

I find this simply astonishing. Gaffney rightly said, “This speaks volumes about Gen. McMaster’s poor judgment and loyalties and affirms the necessity of his termination forthwith.”

We’re Good and They’re Evil
     August 10, 2017 - 6:59 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…National Socialism was Fascism laced with delusional thoughts about Jews as the evil enemies of mankind – when of course the Nazis were the enemies of mankind — which implicitly recognized the Jews as standing for goodness, not evil. Hitler’s mortal enemy was his opposite. He was evil incarnate, the Jews were goodness incarnate.

And so today PMW reported on the celebration yesterday among the savages the anniversary of the Sbarro massacre of Jews, that eruption of Hell on earth when a Muslim smuggled a bomb into a bustling family restaurant and snuffed out the lives of 15 Jews, half of them children. Hamas has a TV station and they celebrated the joyous victory of August 9, 2001.

At what point are we Jews allowed to say aloud that these people are ghouls, which is a mythical Arab figure in folklore who eats the dead? There is an abyss separating us Jews from these Arab barbarians, these subcivilized brutes who revel in murdering people like this. It really is the hallmark of the subcivilized, these Arab Muslims, in Hamas, who celebrate evil. Last century the Germans were our evil mortal enemies; today, it is the turn of the Arabs, really the Muslims, who have taken the place of Nazis…

Israel Needs to Civilize Them
     August 8, 2017 - 6:06 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…The Arabs are angry at this pending legislation, named for Taylor Force, R.I.P. an American tourist, West Point graduate — those are quality people — who was stabbed to death in March 2016. You may remember that his murderer’s M.O was knife in hand sprinting among Israelis strolling along the shore and stabbing and slashing, stabbing and slashing as he ran along.

The Arabs are angry because, as the spokesman for the Arabs in prison for terrorist aggression, it is “an incorrect decision.” The reason for it is “Israeli incitement against the prisoners and martyrs. We as Palestinians reject the accusation that the prisoners are terrorists. We consider the occupation the reason for terrorism in the region and that the prisoners are victims of the presence of the Israeli occupation.”

Indeed, he rejects the accusation the prisoners are “terrorists,” And there you have it: some of the DNA of this ever-hemorrhaging conflict that never stops bleeding. These Arabs here, like this prisoners’ spokesman, refuse and reject the definitions of terrorism and soldiers in civilized societies. They even have a different definition of war…

Decadent Liberalism
     August 6, 2017 - 7:48 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Ideologies, isms, are man-made constructs, versus the Torah miSinai, which is eternal. And like the men who create these isms, they are born, grow, mature, reach their peak performance in life and then decay, decline and disappear. Whatever happened to Whigs in England and elsewhere in its colonies?

Where are the 19th century Positivists these days? The Existentialists, so popular in the 1950s? And so it appears that the Liberalism has also run its course…
