(March 28, 2010) …Now, for those who don’t know: university professors of religion are, by and large, not at all religious but debunkers of religion, starting with what they call the Old Testament whose first Five Books, they say, were not written by Moses but a cabal, if you will, of rabbis centuries after the time of Moses (if he really existed at all) who had access to maybe a half dozen or so different versions of the Five Books which they edited into one.

And never mind the idea of a committee of rabbis all agreeing on one meaning for every verse. The Talmud, for those who don’t know, is eighteen volumes of rabbis arguing with one other.

Anyway, Prof. Robert Wright commenting on world affairs objected to a recent opinion peace by the Christian Zionist and religious conservative Gary Bauer who wrote that “the East Jerusalem settlements are entirely within the city of Jerusalem and Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.”

Said Prof. Dr. Robt. Wright in reply, “That’s artful wording, but it doesn’t change the fact that East Jerusalem, far from being part of ‘the capital of Israel,’ isn’t even part of Israel. East Jerusalem lies beyond Israel’s internationally recognized pre-1967 borders. And the common assertion that Israel ‘annexed’ East Jerusalem has roughly the same legal significance as my announcing that I’ve annexed my neighbor’s backyard. In 1980, the United Nations explicitly rejected Israel’s claim to possess East Jerusalem. And the United States normally vetoes U.N. resolutions that Israel finds threatening, this time chose not to do so.”

This is a guy I feel who has never read one serious book on the Israel’s War of Independence and its denouement or the Six-Day War. Every writer regardless of political slant knows that in 1967 Israel had no “internationally recognized borders.” On the contrary, in 1949, Israel and all its neighbors had signed cease-fire documents which explicitly, in black and white, said these lines are not borders.

And when he mocks Israel annexing East Jerusalem and likens it to annexing his neighbor’s backyard, here is a PhD who is no more thinking than those earlier bloggers; he is just emoting. In addition to not knowing that there were no borders in 1967, he seems not to know Israel did not annex a place called “East Jerusalem.” The term was not in use, and Israel rightly saw itself reuniting a city that had been split by a wall even uglier than the Berlin Wall.

And as for the 1980 vote against Israel by the U.S., he is right: the U.S. normally did not do such things, and the only reason for the anomaly in 1980 was the fact of the president being James Earl Carter who we now know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, is a lying antisemite.

So here is the much classier Herr Doctor Editor-in-Chief of the Progressive Realist and Professor of Religion at the University of Pennsylvania thinking like the yahoos we first looked at; that is to say, he is an ignoramus with a woefully cracked version of the situation here.

And I fear it is a narrative like the one in Robert Wright’s head that is found as well in the brain of Prince Barack Hussein.

This morning in Israel, Yediot ran a small piece on an anonymous member of Bibi’s team in Washington last week who sounded just hysterical in his view of Obama as a “security catastrophe” for Israel precisely because he is now, unlike all other U.S. presidents, firmly on the Arab side in his grotesque distortion of the truth.

In his mind, Obama’s mind, we Jews in Israel are the villains and will be treated by him as such.

(March 25, 2010) …So, here they are again, one by one, the five demands made by Emperor Barack Hussein, the Islam-lover who bowed down to the King of Araby whose educational system in his country produced an Osama bin Ladin and 15 of the 19 madmen on 9-11.

Demand of Bibi No. 1: Israel will not build in the settlements even after Bibi’s 10-month moratorium ends. This is a very basic demand of the mass murdering antisemite Mahmoud Abbas which Obama and Hillary have made their own. It embodies the principle that Israel recognize that it is in occupation of what the whole world today calls “Palestinian Territory.” Israel must recognize this from the outset even before negotiations are re-started; that this land is “Palestinian” land and that is why Israel must cease immediately any building on it. And never mind that the Arabs in Judea and Samaria have not stopped building either.

Indeed, they build at will without any licenses from the legal government here since 1967. They build with money sent from Arab states; homes and apartments that stand empty. What matters is just more building at will.

And for the life of me I have never figured out why Netanyahu does not go public and tell Obama & Co. that Israel will stop building, all building, when the Ancient Ones do so too. But since they don’t, this double standard is a variety of age-old Jew-hatred and Jew-oppression…

(March 23, 2010) …In his speech, typical of Israeli politicians, there was no attempt to refute the arguments of the antiJews, to ridicule their claims and reasoning as a good debater at the Oxford Union might. There is no attempt to dismiss their claims for the rubbish that they are.

Bibi spoke of the removal of hundreds of roadblocks and checkpoints in the West Bank and how he helped spur a fantastic economic boom in an attempt to make Israel look good in the face of the slanderers that he himself referred to vaguely.

But at no time has he ever dismissed the rubbish that pours out of the Arab mind when it comes to us Jews here in this little land we brought back to life.

Hillary Clinton, exactly like Sheikh Barack Hussein, spoke of Israel’s “security and long-term success.” And course when it comes to making the right choices as a state from a security point of view, Hillary and Barack know better than Israelis, who in their right-wing majority don’t want to share Jerusalem and don’t want to retreat from the hills in back of Tel-Aviv.

That’s why these promises about Israel’s security are mostly meaningless. For the Saracen in the White House who clearly is the puppet master to his puppet the strident Hillary, Israel will only increase its security by handing over Judea and Samaria to the Ancient Ones because “when you do, they won’t hate you anymore and they will live next door as good neighbors”…

Saracen in the White House

Webcast Date: 03/21/2010
Length: 39:23 Minutes
(March 21, 2010) …Shalom laYehudim, Shalom laBnai Noach, Shalom laGoyim. It’s the evening of the 2nd day, zion be-Nisan, Parashas Tsav, tav-shin-ayin, the evening of the 1st day, Sunday, 21 March, 2010, webcasting from the Holy Land still largely occupied by Saracens.

“Saracen” is a name we find in material on the Crusades referring to the Muslim enemy. And Wikipedia provides the following information: “Saracen was a term used by the ancient Romans to refer to people who inhabited the deserts near the Roman province of Syria who were distinct from Arabs. The term was later applied to Arab peoples, and by the time of European chroniclers during the time of the Crusades came to be synonymous with Muslim.”

One school of thought says that the term “Saracen” comes from the Greek Σαρακηνός… in Ptolemy’s Geography, the Sarakenoi people refers to those living in the north-western Arabian peninsula, distinct from Arabs. The term spread into Western Europe through the Byzantines and Crusaders. After the rise of Islam, and especially at the time of the Crusades, its usage was extended to refer to all Muslims…”

Now check this out: “In Christian writing, the name was interpreted to mean ‘those empty of Sarah’ or ‘not from Sarah’ (See…John of Damascus. Both Christians and Muslims adopted the extra-biblical Jewish tradition that Arabs descended from Hagar’s son Ishmael. Christians also called them the Hagarenes (Ἀγαρηνοί) or Ishmaelites.”

Indeed. That is one way to describe the Arabs: “not of Sarah.” Of the seed of Avraham, but not of Sarah, and that makes all the difference in the world.

Avraham ben Terach was, for want of a better word, the greatest philosopher in human history and arguably the greatest scientist as well, who preceded Albert Einstein by thousands of years. When Avraham looked up at Creation, he understood – like an Einstein who said “G-d does not play dice with the universe” (no Darwinian he) – that all of Creation was one and therefore was created by One. Avraham against the whole world that believed in thousands of gods said, “No. There is only One.” Avraham saw meaning and order and intelligence in life. He was the perfect man of faith who let the G-d he heard lead him with total faith because G-d is good and wants the best for him.

Avraham ben Terach brought eight sons into this world but only one was the chosen, the one chosen to bear his spiritual legacy.

He had these eight sons with three different women, and what distinguishes the chosen one was his mother, his father’s legitimate wife.

Six sons came from a woman named Ketura after Sarah had passed, and the Midrash teaches she was Hagar who reformed herself, did teshuva. And so too would her son eventually reform himself and do teshuva.

But in the meantime – history – until the miraculous end times, the world has to confront his second son who came from Avraham and Sarah.

Avraham’s first son was Ishmael who came from Hagar daughter of Egypt son of Ham, and so the major difference between Ishmael and Yitzhak son of Sarah was just that: they had different mothers. Same father. Rabbi Shimshon Raphael Hirsch zatsal in 19th century Germany described beautifully how different these two women were and consequently their sons.

So there was more rioting today, and yesterday rioting. It has been a few years since a cohort of teenage Saracens has been throwing stones like this at us Jews. Burning tires, cat-and-mouse games with the Border Police and army, keffiyas around their faces.

And course in the general rising of temperature precipitated by the Muslim mujahid in the White House and his Wellesley girl sidekick attacking Al-Yahud, the “natives” have taken this as a signal to riot again…

(March 18, 2010) …Of course Bibi will never agree to that because, to tell the truth, no sane and sober Israeli would. The demand has become truly inhuman because it asks of us Jews in Israel to act in the most inhuman way possible. We handed over Gaza and look at what happened.

But now Obama, Hillary and the Enlightened expect us to do the same thing and agree to hand over the hills of Judea and Samaria overlooking not only Ben Gurion Airport but Tel-Aviv but the whole of coastal, developed Israel.

The demand is inhuman because it asks us not to learn from experience.

Obama and Hillary already have blood on their hands today. A human being, a migrant worker from Thailand was slain by a Qassam rocket that fell just north of the Gaza rectangle. There have been three of these now in the last two days, and no doubt they have been launched in the heated atmosphere created by Obama and Hillary over the past week, which these savages react to as encouragement for more Jew-killing.

What is happening is like some Hollywood script, a cousin of the Manchurian Candidate which was about a communist plot to get a communist stooge into the Oval Office, only this real-life scenario we are living through is not about Obama the Stooge but Obama the Louis Farrakhan clone.

And we in Jews in lifeboat Israel have to deal with that…

(March 16, 2010) …Never mind that today thousands of Arabs were rioting thanks to delusional rumors spread by their leaders – their Fatah leaders – that Israel was fixing to destroy yet again Al Aqsa Mosque.

That is exactly what was done in Jerusalem in August 1929 when Haj Amin al-Husseini spread the word the Jews had already slaughtered 500 believers and torched Al-Aqsa Mosque. This was the lie that ignited the rampage in Hevron that saw the slaughter of 69 Jewish boys studying the Talmud, and 69 other Jews struck down elsewhere in the country that week in response to the rumor of damage to Al-Aqsa.

We’ve got a situation on our hands the likes of which we have never faced: the president of the United States is a lunatic antisemite in the mold of the lunatic preacher who converted him to Christianity. Barack Hussein Obama is underneath as flakey about Jews as Louis Farrakhan…

Reconquering the Narrative

Webcast Title: Reconquering the Narrative
Webcast Date: 03/14/2010

(March 14, 2010) …So Israel, I think, has to re-conquer the narrative, the vocabulary of our endless struggle for survival. The world has yet to allow us live in peace, every man under his vine and fig tree.

For example, yesterday the AP gave us these two sentences: “Netanyahu has apologized for the timing, though not the substance, of the announcement to approve 1,600 new homes for Jews in east Jerusalem. The international community does not recognize Israel’s annexation of east Jerusalem – captured in the 1967 Mideast war – and the Palestinians see that part of the city as their own future capital.”

Listen again: “…The international community does not recognize Israel’s annexation of east Jerusalem.”

Israel has to make clear the double error here. Bibi needs to return to Bar Ilan University for a second major address in which he addresses the double error here. Israel did not annex a place called “east Jerusalem.” That was not the name in use. What Israel did was not annex but reunite Jerusalem, exactly as Berlin was reunited in 1989 when the Communist wall came down. West Berlin did not annex East Berlin, and Israel 22 years earlier did not annex east Jerusalem, because there was no east Jerusalem. The term was not in use. It was called “the Jordanian sector of Jerusalem” and the people living there at the time were called “Jordanians” and “Arabs.” They were not called “Palestinians”…

(March 11, 2010) …Shalom laYehudim, Shalom laBnai Noach, Shalom laGoyim. It’s the evening of the 6th day, kaf-vav Adar, Parashas Vayakhel-Pekudei, tav-shin-ayin, the evening of the 5th day, Thursday, 11 March, 2010, webcasting from a land as weird as Alice’s Wonderland.

For me the most important image of the last 48 hours of this brouhaha ignited by Eli Yishai’s ministry announcing approval of 1,600 more homes for Israelites in Northern Jerusalem (not fantastical East Jerusalem as misreported everywhere in the world) was the footage yesterday of the 47th Vice-President of the United States of America Joseph Biden in Ramallah, with his arm around the antisemitic mass murdering terrorist Mahmoud Abbas, the two of them walking and smiling and joking, with Joe displaying affection and support. He had his arm around Abu Mazen’s shoulder.

And what came to mind was my most significant image from the onset of the Oslo Delirium Years: Shimon Peres kissing Yasir Arafat on the cheek. To my mind, that self-abasement by Peres before that mass murderer of Jews symbolized the essential horror of Oslo which included the cleansing of this devil of his evil; of all these PLO-Fatah terrorists. Shimon and Yitzhak and Yossi had no right to do that. They were not the high priests of the Jewish people…

“Pushy, Greedy, Criminal & Cruel”

(March 9, 2010) …There was an op-ed in Haaretz today that I could barely get through and did not because it was apparent from the gitgo that the leftist writer, whom I am not familiar with, calling for dialogue with Hamas simply did not know what he was talking about. He had no awareness of the stakes involved on the other side: how essential it is to the Muslim enterprise that Israel not be allowed to live. Israel’s very existence is experienced as an aggression, an insult to Islam. Its existence mocks the Muslim claim that they are the Chosen People who have a right to rule over this Land; indeed, the whole earth. They say this is Muslim territory.

Hamas has been at least up front about its philosophy of wanting to destroy Israel, G-d forbid, with delusionists of the Left believing that Fatah, by contrast, doesn’t want to do that.
Here was this latest Haaretz leftist arguing that Israel just had to open a dialogue with Hamas because they too are part to the conflict.

It is significant in the MSM here in recent days that more than one leftist is whining that Israel has never been in such bad repute in the world; never have so many countries been against Israel – because these leftists cannot tolerate the Torah prophecy that Israel is a “people that dwells alone.”

And what reeks of Jewish antisemitism in these Israeli leftists is their whining that the hostility to Israel in the West (never mind the East) is the fault of the Jews themselves, and that is because they are just too inconsiderate and selfish. All they care about is their own nation. They’re too Jewish, and thereby cruel to the victims of Zionism.

For these people, Jews demanding their rights is evidence they are pushy, greedy, criminal and cruel Jews…

(March 7, 2010) …And so today here is yet another national leader of a Muslim country who is, if not a Holocaust Denier than a denier of the history of the Tomb of Rachel and the Cave of the Patriarchs.

It might not be so bad if Erdogan and his ilk would say, “Yes, they used to belong to the Jews but the Jews lost the special covenant, we got it, and so they belong to us now.”

But no. These Muslim meshugeners say that these have always been Muslim shrines. This is the same craziness as Arafat telling Bill Clinton to his face that the Temple Mount is not the Temple Mount.

We here in Israel are faced with national leaders in Turkey, in the P.A., in Syria, in Iran who are as flakey about us Jews as Hitler was, if not in the same details.

And you may have noticed that in recent webcasts I have said little about the political situation vis-à-vis these neighbors of ours in part because I have no inside information about the political and military situation, but also because I have chosen to look away; look away from a scenario that is not pleasant to contemplate.

I’m referring of course to the rumblings of war, so-called, more violence from our savage neighbors. Think of the recent war councils, the meetings between Ahmadinejad and Assad and Nasrallah and Mashaal in Damascus and Tehran, with their arsenal of tens of thousands of powerful and accurate rockets now.

In 2006 our neighbors – our blood-thirsty Muslim maniac neighbors – reveled like sharks smelling blood in the water at the sight of a million Jews in the north terrorized by them, their lives made hell for 34 days. And these barbarians are not beyond wanting to fire off all the rockets they have amassed in three years, G-d forbid, joined by the rockets now in Gaza smuggled in from Iran over the last year.

So this is not a pleasant prospect. And this behavior of these low-level hominids Ahmadinejad and Bashaar the geek sultan of Damascus, and that fat, turbaned lunatic Nasrallah; and their daily, verbal nastiness smells of wanting to foment a second round for the sheer fun of tormenting Jews in Israel again and to draw attention away from Iran as it continues to build an atomic bomb, they hope the first of many.

I would not be unhappy if tomorrow morning when I awake to hear the first news of the day on Kol Israel, I learn that over night some country, some unknown country, dropped an atomic bomb on Teheran which city is no more and has entered the history books alongside Hiroshima and Nagasaki…

(March 4, 2010) …Now I have not read On the Origin of Species and thus I am reluctant to comment on Darwin, for I suspect that like his contemporary Sigmund Freud, he said things people are unaware of and did not say things he is claimed to have said.

In any case, as a Jew, I have no problem with the notion of life not appearing in a flash as it is exists today but over time, in stages of evolution, because that is exactly what the story of the first ten verses of the Bible is: a story of the evolution of existence starting with light beams and celestial bodies, the simplest of compounds, H2O water, and marine life, terrestrial, stationary vegetation progressing to mobile creatures on land and in the air, finally culminating with the creation of the most complex and complicated and freest creatures, man. The Torah is the story of the evolution of life from its simplest forms to its most complex.

There is also in the holy writings of our mystics who, long before Darwin, believed that before HaShem created man, He created 972 varieties of hominids, man-like creatures, yet without a soul.

So I have no problem with evolution as a concept. I do have a problem with post-Jewish ignoramuses who think ultimate wisdom is to be found not only among the goyim but goyim whose universe has no place for HaShem…

(March 2, 2010) …If you know the history of this Land, as I do, you find this kind of funny because it is so bizarre, as bizarre as it is ignorant. In ancient times the Land was not called the West Bank as it is here, and Nablus cannot be of any historic interest to today’s so-called Ancient Palestinians because it’s a Greek word. It is just the word Neapolis mispronounced. The Romans built this “New City” which is what the word means next to Shechem, the first city the Patriarch Avraham came to when he arrived from Ur Casdim on a mission from the G-d of the Universe.

Nablus is the same name as Naples, the English corruption of the Italian Napoli (you can even hear the “b” there) which is the Italian corruption of the Greek Neapolis. Although the Romans built this New City, they didn’t give it a Latin but a Greek name probably for the same reason English Quakers named their principle colonial city Philadelphia, to give it some class. The Romans looked up to the Greeks…

Program Link: Israel’s man in Hamas just ‘wanted to save lives’
(March 1, 2010) …The link that was put up today for this webcast leads to the cover story in Friday’s Weekend Haaretz Magazine concerning Mosab Hassan Youssef whose father helped found Hamas but who later became a convert to Christianity, really first a covert Christian while working secretly with Israel’s GSS to stymie terror attacks. It’s certainly a very interesting human interest story.

The details of his biography and the operations he was involved in are at the heart of this piece – a book he has written is now being published – but for our purposes, I recommend checking out this article and in particular its last few paragraphs, its last few columns, starting with the question, “Aren’t you afraid now after exposing all this?”

He of course admits to his fear but is proud of having served not Israel but his G-d and thereby saved so many lives on both sides.

And then he hits the nail on the head about terrorism. Of course, he says, it must be fought, but terrorism per se is not the problem. And neither, he says, is the occupation, as he still calls it. “The root of the problem does not lie in security or politics. It is a war between two gods, two religions. Between the God of the Torah and the God of the Koran…There will be no peace in the Middle East. Israel’s problem is not with Hamas or with any other organization, nor with the interpretation Hamas reads into the Koran. It is with the God of the Koran. After all, even a moderate Muslim who reads the Koran must read that the Jews are sons of apes and that the infidels must be killed. The Palestinians must stop blaming Israel, or the West, for all their problems. If they want true freedom, they must free themselves from their God.”
