Islam’s Murderous Envy
     December 14, 2017 - 6:09 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Vying for Jerusalem has been a news story, so to speak, for thousands years. Like a soap opera that never ends, humanity has fought over who owns Jerusalem since ancient Babylon.

And by its existence as the perennial target of envy, Israel’s worst enemies unwittingly salute the truth of Jewishness; that indeed Jerusalem is the world’s uncontested, universal, No. 1 Holy City on the planet.

I mean, to Buddhists in Tibet, Lhasa is their holy city; Japanese adherents of Shinto may regard various mountains sacred; native Americans believe in sacred lakes. But in every case, it was a local belief, not universally accepted the way Jerusalem is and fought over. The fighting over it is the antiJew’s unwitting acceptance that what Jews call holy is the Real McCoy.

Think of the Philistines who captured the Ark of the Covenant containing the tablets in the belief they were the source of Israelis strength and success, not understanding that the tablets were not the source of power. The source was the words and ideas engraved in them, that the Philistines never understood.

Islam is like that…

Who is Dr. Mogherini?
     December 12, 2017 - 6:53 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…I was so ignorant of Jewish history and thought for most of life because I was a so-called Reform Jew — which is bad grammar; it should be Reformed Jew — I was so ignorant because I thought, as I was led to believe, that Hanukkah was a holiday celebrating the abstract principle of freedom of religion for all people, a holiday the American Civil Liberties Union could love.

That’s two mistakes right there. The implication is that Hanukkah has all individuals in the world in mind who have a right to their religious beliefs. For sure they do, but that is not what this holiday is about. It is much closer to home and less universal. It is not about every man and woman’s right to believe what they want to believe. No, Hanukah remembers the Jews resisting those among them who insisted upon reforming the Jewish religion, by, for example, adding pigs to the animals that get sacrificed in the Temple.

These were the Hellenizers who thought it was good to adopt the ways of the Greek culture still dominant in the region after the death of Alexander, when his two principle generals Ptolemy and Seleucus took over, the former in Egypt, the latter Seleucus in Damascus. Greek culture for sure had much to recommend it, but it remained a pagan culture at odds with the ideas and commandments Hashem gives in the Chumash, the first five books of the Bible.

In other words, today’s friction between so called Reform Jews and the classical Jewishness of every community in the world in the 20th century except the United States, is nothing new…

Israel’s Political Cowardice
     December 10, 2017 - 5:36 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…The news today, I don’t have to tell you. You all know that on Friday night, the Sabbath, where the traditional people in Sderot, originally refugees from Arab mobs in Morocco, and then later refugees from Russia, both these Jewish communities were the victims of homicidal Muslim maniacs.

Like the attempted butcher today at the central bus station in Jerusalem. The attack is online, the video of it. Why don’t Jews do this to Muslims? How different our cultures are.

The American TV comedian Conan Obrien visited Israel recently and the hospital in Tsfat when thousands of Syrian Arabs have come for free medical treatment, since much of Syria is now, one city after another, piles of rubble. Oh how they hate us in Israel for all the terrible things they believe we do that we don’t, and look at what they do to themselves in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Egypt where Copts are periodically murdered and Salafiyyun type terrorists murder Egyptian police and soldiers.

Conan O’Brian in his visit to the hospital in Tsfat said to the Israeli medical staff, which is Jewish and Arab, “You people deserve the Noble Prize for Peace.”

O Jerusalem. Why Jerusalem?
     December 7, 2017 - 7:37 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…For myself, I am not overjoyed. In many ways, the US is the greatest country in the history of nations but I have found it unseemly that Jews think we need recognition from anybody, any country. In fact, I have preferred the unanimity of the nations in not recognizing Jerusalem as our capital as a kind of unanimous recognition that it is. That no other country is treated this way is yet another instance of the Jews being treated as a chosen people, chosen for treatment that no other receives.

What also is immensely if oddly complimentary is the anger of the world today in the name of the principle that Jerusalem is a city holy to three faiths and therefore the Jews are being greedy in wanting a monopoly on sovereignty. What is in play is an attitude that is a religious state of mind thousands of years old spiced with resentment at the Jews for having this unique relationship to the G-d Almighty, a special covenant that no other people, no other religion can claim.

Hence, for two thousand years, the Church of Rome has claimed to be the True people of Israel, and therefore true sovereign over the Promised Land. By not only rejecting but murdering their own messiah, the Jews lost that covenant and Roman Catholics took their place.

Indeed, Christianity claimed to be the authentic continuation of the history of the Jews in the Old Testament. Christians had superseded the Jews and become the new chosen people, which idea of supersession then inspired Muhammad to claim that Islam superseded Christianity…

A New Saudi Peace Plan?
     December 5, 2017 - 7:38 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…And so is a top story in Israel today, yesterday’s New York Times report on the peace plan Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman presented to Abbas in their meeting last month.

The title of Caroline Glick’s report today was “A credible peace plan, at last.”

No. Even she admits that the details of the plan have not been confirmed by the Saudis. This is standard operating procedure: chumming the waters, so to speak, with bait in the belief the Saudis have finally reconciled themselves to Israel’s right to exist, without officially saying so.

Caroline Glick has many merits as a writer and thinker but with certain deficits. I don’t thinks she knows much of the history of the conflict before she was born as she should, and her analyses never include the religious dimension…

Israelis: Their Own Worst Enemy
     December 3, 2017 - 5:58 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…At Auschwitz, the Germans took away our human names and burnt serial numbers into our arms, as if we were diseased cattle being registered before being destroyed, and now with the rise of the “Palestinian” people and their noble cause of national liberation, we ceased to use Judea and Samaria but “West Bank.” It is almost as if today’s MSM in Israel has gone to work for our Nazi-loving enemies by doing their work for them, inscribing our own map with their names that blot out Judea, origin of the word Jew, and Samaria, origin of the Christian story of the Good Samaritan.

That Israel and the Jewish people have gone along with this corruption of language, truth and thought to the detriment of the Jewish people is a national disgrace.

Jews are supposed to be so smart and clever and can be, so I find it amazing that only Golda Meir stood out among her generation of founding fathers and mothers of the state in standing up to the monstrous lie that there was another nation besides the Jewish nation with a right to a state in Palestine, a.k.a., the land of Israel, a.k.a. the Promised Land.

It is an outrage that these primitive intellects, the Arabs, have been able, via acts of terror on the world stage, to impose their fraudulent history according to which Palestine belongs to the “Palestinians,” a people absent from the country’s history that is thousands of years old.

Historians of the future may marvel at this fact; the absolute Israeli refusal to stand up from day one to the nonsense of the existence of this other people with the identical right to statehood in the land whose 1,000 years of history can be found in Tanakh, the Bible.

So desperate were the post-religious Zionists to create a post-religious state, they were willing to waive their rights to the heart of the Promised Land, Judea and Samaria. The No. 1 iconic act of this generation was Moshe Dayan in 1967 returning the Temple Mount to the Muslim. The gesture sent the message, “We Israelis don’t care about such things.”

Radical Islamic Terrorism? Ha.
     November 30, 2017 - 6:02 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…And what is hypocrisy? Doing the evil that one accuses others of doing. Classic example: Hitler accusing the Jews of wanting to overrun the world, at the same time his Nazi Youth Organization, the Hitlerjugend were singing Heute Deutschland, Morgen Der Gantze Velt / “Today Germany, tomorrow the entire world.” This was a youth movement whose youngsters were encouraged to see themselves as the Master Race destined to overrun and dictate to the entire world. Hitler’s notion of the Master Race is not accidentally reminiscent of the Chosen People as a nickname for a nation, a mirror image, in which left is right and right is wrong, of the Jewish idea of Chosenness, chosen to live a life of commandments and thereby set an example to the world of human potential. People can be better than they are…

Antisemitism: What Is it?
     November 28, 2017 - 9:40 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…This is why the idea of a secular Jew is an oxymoron. Someone who calls himself a secular Jew is using words he misunderstands. Jew comes from Yehuda, the name Mother Leah gave to her fourth son. She expressed hope three times previously, giving birth each time to a boy, that she hoped would finally win Jacob’s love. This time she just thanked G-d for son number four. His name thus resonates with the very concept of thanking God, and that is one reason why humankind suffers from a predilection to hating Jews, for our existence as a nation, as a community, has proven so far to be immortal and thus a proof of the existence of G-d as Jews conceive of Him, He Whose first lesson to his greatest creation is to know that there is good and there is evil, G-d wants man to choose the good and not the evil. And people don’t want to hear that because it means reining our worst impulses and urges. So much pleasure is succumbing to temptation, instant gratification, but long term sorrow.

So someone who calls himself a secular Jew, when secularism means against religion, and Jew connotes a G-d-thanker. Jews are constantly thanking G-d, and if so, and anti-religionist G-d-thanker makes no sense…

America, Israel’s Promised Land
     November 26, 2017 - 1:06 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…You should have the seen almost banner headline in the post-Zionist post-Jewish Jerusalem Post: “Hotovely insults US Jewry, then apologizes under pressure.”

And the subhead: “Facing Diaspora fury, threatens termination.”

This was almost an LOL/laugh out loud moment for its bizarre distortion of what she said and the notion that the Diaspora was furious. Tsipi spoke the truth, if less than elegantly and as an Israeli, well, they are not known for their tact. Truth be told, I did detect a shallow misperception of American Jewry, but overall she spoke the truth. And that can, like a dentist hitting a nerve, cause great pain, which was the response in Israel to the post-Zionist, really Jewish Israelis whose perception of American Jewry, judging of the MSM’s hysteria, is likewise fanciful and defective.

“Diaspora fury” over her words? Puh-leeze. 99% of Diaspora Jews do not know what she said and could not care less. Israel is simply not part of their thoughts…

Israel’s Divided Self
     November 23, 2017 - 6:38 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…There are no bigger supporters in Israel of these gate-crashing Africans than the anti-pro-Balestinian Israeli Left. Anything to damage Jewish group solidarity. I remember one Independence Day Meretz took out an ad in the paper seemingly in celebration, using as a sub-headline, “Israel: A Multicultural Country.” The idea of uniquely Jewish country sickens them.

It is this spirit at work as well in the demand of Israel’s post-Jewish Left who insist that Israel be a Jewish and a democratic country, by which they mean a Jewish and a non-Jewish country. For Israel’s enlightened post-religionists, the term Jew associates to the Jewish religion, and if you are not religious, you are an Israeli, a patriot, a nationalist but not a Jew.

It is the eternal tug of war here. Today I woke up to newspapers blaring advertisements for major sales tomorrow because it is Black Friday, and it is not the first time Israelis have pilfered something from American culture and made it their own, without any understanding of what they are doing…

Closing Down the PA Office and Weird Sex
     November 21, 2017 - 6:12 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…At one point in our history, the news that the PLO office in Washington, open since 1994 as part of the heavenly Oslo Peace Delirium, has been ordered shut would have caused a firestorm of protest here among the Enlightened. Twenty years ago, say, there would have been outrage in Israel where the Enlightened often say, “Everyone knows what a final solution will look like, two states for two peoples,” and closing that office does nothing to advance that sublime goal. That was the fantasy that created the Palestinian Authority, and here its office in Washington was just shut down for violating American law…

The Sabbath is Everything
     November 19, 2017 - 6:30 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…So talk of Trump Peace Plan was a top story and related was the threat by Secretary of State Tillerson to shut down the PLO office in Washington. These international outlaw terrorist criminals have turned to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to persecute Israel, which is against its own word in previous negotiations. Tillerson said the PLO has to withdraw its case or see its Washington office shut and padlocked.

In any case, in all candor, I now read such stories quickly with a jaundiced eye, for any continuation of the Oslo Process, and the current diplomatic dance is that, is doomed to fail. It is forgotten that the Two-State Solution which remains official policy in Washington, the UN, Russia, was the brainchild of these post-Jewish fools, Rabin, son of an ardent communist, Peres, youthful Marxist philosopher, Beilin, proud post-Jewish atheist and cohorts in academe, all of whom knew nothing of the enemy. So it is illogical to continue to use the same terms, ideas and concepts of the Oslo Peace Process. A whole new set of ideas and concepts must arise to meet the reality that the Oslo delusionists never could…

A Watershed Decision
     November 16, 2017 - 6:20 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…Indeed, Palestinian Nationalism is in essence more than antisemitic; it is a frontal attack on Judaism, which began with the appearance of Abraham to whom G-d’s first words were “Go to a land I will show you.” Then, over the next 290 years, his seed grew into a party of 70 people who descended into Egypt; then 210 years later emerged as nation of millions liberated from slavery and bound to occupy the Land first promised to Moses’s great-grandfather’s great-grandfather Abraham.

The Five Books then end with Moses standing on the east bank looking over that Promised Land, but today, every enlightened person knows this land belongs to the Ancient Palestinians, not the Jews. Palestinian Nationalism is beyond anti-Zionism. It is an attack on the central belief of Judaism, the promise of the Promised Land. Today, university students say this land belongs to the Ancient Ones which the criminal Jews stole from them…

Under Attack from All Sides
     November 14, 2017 - 6:13 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…The Ten Commandments are 70% negative like the first one in the Garden; “Don’t do this and don’t do that, which you will want to do.” The beginning of morality is less doing good than refraining from doing evil.

And for this the world hates us. We are surrounded by antiJews. Consider the following news stories today. The Iron Dome system has been installed in the center of the country in anticipation the homicidal Muslim Jew-haters in Gaza fittingly called Islamic Jihad — there could no better name for them — though three years ago, the MSM repeatedly called those firing rockets in our homes and streets “Palestinians.” There is fear in Israel that Islamic Jihad wants revenge for what the IDF did a couple of weeks ago already. Blew up a tunnel being dug in hopes of being able to send teams of suicidal-homicidal Muslim maniacs into Jewish villages to murder Jews at random, and in the process ten of their bigwigs, are should I say their big keffiyas, were unexpectedly launched into Muslim paradise. You might think that Islamic Jihad would thank Israel for dispatching the ten to that eternal orgy in the sky. But no. Israel is expecting a reprisal…

The English and the Jews

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…So this will be the English webcast. For sure, after us Jews, the English have a special relationship to the Eretz Yisrael, dare one say an Esavian relationship. There is that old Hebrew belief that Esav sonai leyakov, meaning Esau hates Jacob, shorthand for Esau’s eternal hostility toward his fraternal twin, but no less Esav has other character traits that could not be more admirable. He is after all Israel’s twin brother, son of the same mother and father, Rivka and Yitzhak.

Some think the origin of the ethnic name Briton comes from the Hebrew brit, or in the Ashkenazi pronunciation, bris, meaning covenant. There was a time in history when serious thinkers in England pondered the possibly they were one of the lost tribes…

Always the Bad Guys
     November 9, 2017 - 5:39 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…You all know yours truly is endlessly fascinated by the thinking of antiJews, how their minds work, which I think is one of the most important characteristics of the human race that needs to be driven from the world, like crippling and fatal illnesses. AntiJew thinking has been as destructive to society as any war and famine.

World War II over its six years’ duration saw the destruction of 60 million lives and a case can be made that one major driving force for this war was Jew-hatred. The Nazis were bent on overrunning the whole world and in the process murdering every Jew they encountered until the whole world was Jew-free.

Seen in this light, many more gentiles died than Jews. Germany alone lost 8 million people…

Progressive Jews
     November 7, 2017 - 7:37 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…It is this generation in general that also produces students of Jewish extraction who do not live Jewish lives and like their fellow snowflakes cannot tolerate ideas they don’t agree with. Hence, the academic horror this week at Princeton of all places in which a gaggle of Jews who support the principle Jew-killers in this generation prevented a speech by Deputy Foreign Ministress Tsipi Hotovely. They created a petition protesting her as a racist because she denies the existence of the Ancient Palestinians whose entire country Zionists like her allegedly stole from them and won’t give back.

Her talk was set for last night at Princeton’s Center for Jewish Life which apparently answers to the Hillel foundation of mostly Reform Jews but was cancelled when a group calling itself the Alliance of Jewish Progressives objected and won the day. The Center for Jewish Life did not hold, to borrow from great Irish poet William Butler Yeats, and canceled her talk as demanded by these progressives. That is the substantive in their name; Jewish is only an adjectival modifier…

Nikki Haley Gets It
     November 5, 2017 - 8:29 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…US Ambassadress to the UN Nikki Haley spoke before the Israeli American Something Council, started by yordim, those who descend from the Holy Land into the Exile who want to help Israel nonetheless, like other successful American Jews, if no longer Israelis.

And she gave a wonderful speech. I believe I read in a mini-bio of her, her past includes run-ins with bigotry in the US because her family came from India and therefore she is not Caucasian, so she experienced insult and it sounds as if she identifies with the Jews for that.

Orde Charles Wingate was like that, the English intelligence officer posted to Mandatory Palestine in 1936 to help squelch the first intifada known in the history books as the Arab Revolt — certainly not the Palestinian Revolt, not when in 1936 all Palestinians were Zionist Jews. Wingate grew up in an offbeat Protestant sect called the Plymouth Brethren and was the butt of jokes among boys at school belonging to the mainstream Church of England. Wingate was the butt of jokes in his boyhood and he too identified with the persecuted Jews.

In any case, Nikki Halle nonetheless had never been to Israel, which is kind of strange, but maybe not. For thousands of years, Jews too moaned of their longing to go to the same land they had never been to…

Balfour Day and Rabin, Jr.
     November 2, 2017 - 8:09 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…And so Islam is the religion of thieves who shamelessly stole the story of Abraham and Isaac and re-wrote it. The binding took place not in Jerusalem on the future temple mount, they say, but in Mecca on the Qaaba stone that in Muhammad’s day had been a pilgrimage site for pagans worshiping 365 idols on it. And when asked to explain the discrepancy between the Jewish and Muslim versions of this most famous, world-historical little story, some 300 words, Muslims say the Jews stole it from them and “changed words from their context.” The accusation appears numerous times in the Quran. Muslims say Moses, whose name these lisping illiterate outlaws botch as Musa, not Moshe, brought down from Mt. Sinai not the Five Books but the Quran, and at the bottom of the mountain the Jews snatched it from him and re-wrote it. In basic Islamic doctrine, the Jews are the thieves of holy scripture…

The UN’s Latest Aggression
     October 31, 2017 - 7:37 PM 

Excerpt from this day’s program:

…And how do we know that? Very simply, by the behavior of the nations of the world in congress assembled, a.k.a. the United Nations Organization which is obsessed with our little state and possessed with the need to scold Israel for its immoral behavior as no other state in the world in the UN organization is chastised.

Today’s latest episode is the world’s obsessive-compulsive daily need to point the finger of guilt at Israel firing charges of immoral behavior, its immoral, criminal persecution of the Ancient People whose country the Jews stole from them.

Two days ago the webcast was about Michael Lynk at the UN, a Canadian, I believe, calling for denying visas to Israelis and in effect turning the whole state into a ghetto.

Today a top story was the decision by the UN to spend 1.3 billion dollars on helping the Ancient Palestinians achieve their stated goal of statehood, which will entail condemning Israel for its criminal occupation of their ancient homeland.

Remember the 1975 UNGA Resolution 3379 condemning Zionism as “a form of racism”? Well that spiritual state of mind at work in the General Assembly then remains alive and well and perhaps will remain so until Moshiach comes, in which it is our destiny to fight back against this ageless, eternal human response to the very existence of the Jews fueled by homicidal hatred…
