Yesterday I got to an email in time from Ari Bussel informing me of a Conference Call billed as National Faith Leaders Call with Donald Trump. Ari provided the contact info to be on the call to me which I indeed participated (9/2/21).
The call began with a proviso that if members managed to get access to hang up now for the Conference Call was to be off the record. Because of that I will not share the content of what I was able to listen. Sadly my old Android Smart Phone dropped the call about a half-hour after beginning. BUT this I will share: President Trump (that without FRAUD – the actually elected President in 2020) was very upbeat and did NOT sound like a quitter.
In conjunction with that Conference Call I am sharing Ari Bussel’s email exchange with whom he was invited to participate.

What an extraordinary surprise and blessing it is to have received your invite this morning! So while we were (not) “asleep at the wheel,” and while numbness seems to have frozen us to the point of “slumber and sleep,” you have apparently continued working, creating, germinating and are here now, ready for this very day!
There is nothing more encouraging and uplifting that looking all around and seeing the multitudes – us – ready and eager to join; standing thirsty and waiting for these drops of rain, like seeds in the Sahara Desert.
We are one, great in numbers, but united in essence and purpose – in belief in God the Almighty and what He wants from us. Thus, a song plays in my mind, written more than 120 years ago following the First Zionist Congress. The Congress main mission was to UNITE the Jewish People, all hundreds and hundreds of its cooperatives, associations and groups into one great movement whose members will emigrate to the Land of Israel, in great waves.
[שאו ציונה נס ודגל – S’u Tziona Nes va Degel]
Lift toward Zion a pole and flag, the flag of the Judean camp …
Return, return from great distances
to our homeland, to the land of our Fathers …
For our people, for our land, be strong and become strong
Together we will go, please, we will return
to our land, that of our Forefathers
to our beloved land
where our childhood began ….
Then our mouths will be filled with laughter and our tongue with singing (Psalms 126:2 – which continues, “then said they among the nations: ’The Lord has done great things with these!’”)
And so the song that has become somewhat of an anthem (and has filled my mind, refusing to leave) is based on the words of the Prophet Jeremiah. The Prophet tells us to “tell,” to “sound,” to “say” and to “blow the horn,” – to “call, fill and tell, gather and let us come together” – all action directives – CARRY THE FLAG TO ZION, DARE NOT STAND” (idle), carry the flag, unite!
1 And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do no manner of servile work; it is a day of blowing the horn unto you.
White House High Holy Days Call
Friday, September 27, 2019
Operator: Hello and thank you for joining today’s High Holy Days call with Jewish faith leaders. Please note that this call is being recorded. At this time all audience members are in listen-only mode to minimize background noise. There will be Q&A at the end of this call, and we will provide instructions at that time. I would now like to formally begin today’s call and introduce President of the United States, Donald J Trump.
Pres. Trump: It’s a great honor to be with you and to host our third annual call with Jewish leaders, rabbis and friends to wish you Shana Tova, a sweet new year. During the High Holy Days, families gather in synagogues across the country and around the world to sound the shofar and pray, reflect and thank God for His many blessings.
As we mark the Jewish New Year, our entire country is reminded of the infinite ways Jewish Americans strengthen our communities, uplift our nation, and deepen our culture. You care for your neighbors, teach your children, cherish our heritage, and you embody the American dream. Throughout history, the Jewish people have suffered unthinkable oppression and persecution, yet they have persevered, endured, thrived, and created a flourishing democracy – the state of Israel.
In the last two and a half years, we have strengthened the everlasting friendship between the United States and Israel. I moved the United States Embassy to Jerusalem. We recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which was something they were trying to have done for 72, or 52 years to be more specific. We’re confronting Iran, a regime that chants “Death to Israel.”
As I said in my recent address to United Nations, America will never tolerate anti-Semitic hate. In recent months, our entire nation was stricken with shock and grief and righteous anger when two horrific anti-Semitic murderers attacked synagogues in California and Pennsylvania. To every survivor, family member and to the entire Jewish community, all of America embraces you with love. We pledge our undying and total resolve to excise the vile placing of anti-Semitism from our world. Earlier this year, I appointed a new special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism. Elan Carr, who is with us now and will provide an update shortly. In the wake of such atrocious attacks, millions have been inspired by Jewish-American heroes who responded to the worst evil with remarkable bravery. During my State of the Union Address, we were all moved by the presence of Pittsburgh survivor, Judah Samet, who also survived the Holocaust. In May, on the National Day of Prayer in the Rose Garden, we were joined by members of the congregation from Poway, California, including Rabbi Goldstein. This afternoon we’re joined on the call by survivors of the Holocaust. We cannot comprehend the persecution and suffering you have endured, yet you have overcome the darkest chapters of human history with the purity of love and goodness in your hearts. We renew our pledge now and always. Never again.
I understand that during this time of year, you often read Psalm 27. We remember the promise of those words that says, “Wait for the Lord. Be strong and let your heart take courage.” Today, we thank God for His faithfulness and for the countless ways Jewish-Americans bless our nation.
Those who read my blog posts are aware that I consider Beijing Joe Biden’s acquisition of residence in the White House the result of a nefarious election coup committed by the Democratic Party (which usually refer as Dem-Marxists) and an unholy collusion of RINOs desiring to depose President Trump.
I don’t know much about Lipstadt other than her defense for truth. I pray her leanings are not Left-Wing, but if they are, at least she can be counted on to battle another growing generation of Jew-Haters beginning to show their ugly heads in public.
Ari Bussel shares about Lipstadt and Ambassador-level post designed to combat Antisemitism.
I need your generosity in 2021 via – credit cards, check cards
Ever since the departure of Elan Carr and his team from the State Department, even prior to the end of President Trump’s term, I had a wish, that President Biden would nominate Professor Deborah Lipstadt to the job.
I realize of course that it is the Secretary of State who will be the Special Envoy’s boss, and that an actual confirmation will be necessary, as the position was uplifted to an Ambassador’s rank, but much like the case of Carr, this position originates with the President.
Professor Lipstadt was not only the natural choice, she is the best candidate to serve as the US Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism. It was so obvious to me, that when the President visited Emory University, I wrote Prof. Lipstadt asking her is she is ready (for an announcement) on that most special day. It was not to be on that day, but a short few months later.
Before the appointment of Carr, the position was vacant for a long time, until the Adelsons introduced Carr as their candidate for the job (they previously supported his failed run against Ted Lieu for the Congressional seat). We should all be grateful to President Biden for placing this appointment on his priority list and for acting on it.
The job is immensely important, not only to us – the Jewish People – but to all people. History, Six Million Jews (of whom about 1.5 million were children) and most of my family that perished in the Holocaust taught us what happens when good people do not speak and act against evil. We vowed Never Again.
So first, we celebrate the nominee. Second, we are grateful for the importance shown to the subject matter by the timing of the appointment.
Professor Lipstadt is a common household name today, due to a movie depicting her struggle and triumph, court tribulation and vindication when she was wrongly sued for liable in the UK and had to prove that the Holocaust did happen. A person who fought against all odds will forever be dedicated to the cause.
Professor Lipstadt is the most known brand name in the field of fighting Antisemitism. When Yair Lapid, Israel’s current Alternate Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, commented about “Antisemites from the BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanction) movement,” he said as part of the same sentence “that Deborah Lipstadt and many others – including me – dedicate time and effort to combat its corrupt, deviant and evil positions.” Professor Lipstadt brand (or name or just being) is synonymous with fighting Antisemitism in all its modern-day forms and manifestations.
Professor Lipstadt was not chosen because she will target only white extremists, nor was she chosen to be a mouthpiece of the radical left that is threatening the Democratic Party as we once knew it. Professor Lipstadt is an independent thinker, encourages her students (I was one of them, some three and a half decades ago) to use their common sense, knowledge and training, and will do the same herself. She will unite us in purpose and unwavering resolve.
If anything, Professor Lipstadt’s nomination is based on merit, which she earned over the decades. She is the expert in the field, and she uniquely combines a classroom theory with real-life experience. A few years ago she appeared at the annual Holocaust Remembrance Lecture-Lunch at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles (an annual event by Dr. Joel Geiderman), before hundreds of doctors, nurses, staff and a few Survivors who were still alive. As she did in the classroom, she mesmerized all attendees with her knowledge, clarity of thought and expression, dedication and experience. In a way, she is Professor-Judge Amy Coney Barrett, and unlike Justice Coney Barrett’s confirmation, maybe Professor Lipstadt will receive a better, apolitical treatment by Democrats and Republicans alike.
If there is one thing that is generally accepted by Jews – who are otherwise divided on anything and everything – it is that Antisemitism is on the rise. President Biden is giving us a gift, in the form of Professor – soon to be Ambassador – Lipstadt to the job. We should be most grateful for that.
Israel just went through a process similar to the last Presidential election in the US: After more than 12 years in office, Prime Minister Netanyahu was ousted in the fourth election in less than two years. Prime Minister Bennett’s current coalition government’s oldest minister is Dr. Nachman Shai, who recently spent a sabbatical at Emory University and met Professor Lipstadt.
Minister of Diaspora Affairs Shai is tasked with regaining the hearts and minds of American Jews who seem to have drifted away from Israel. Based on my friendship with him for the past 13 years, I know he is the best person for the job. Likewise, I remember Professor Lipstadt when I was a graduating senior at UCLA, one of several hundred students in her class. That was before she became famous. We kept in touch over the decades, and there is no doubt in my mind she is the best person for the job. Both are uniquely qualified to unite us in purpose, as the Prophet Ezekiel said (37:19), making us one: “and make them one stick, and they shall be one in My hand.”
A new day is dawning, in Israel and in the US, where we are reminded that there is more that unites than divides us. Let us rejoice in this day, and be grateful that such an excellent candidate is to be confirmed as the new Special Envoy of the State Department to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism.
If Carr has left a legacy, it is that the job entails action, not only words (or filing paperwork). If Lipstadt is to leave a mark, it is that fighting Antisemitism is neither a “Republican” or “Democrat” task nor a tool against anyone but Antisemites. She will undoubtedly leave a lasting mark that is more important than ever.
My parents, both Holocaust Survivors, are the last of the generation of first-hand witnesses, the remnants that rose from the ashes of the Holocaust. After them, there will not be any direct accounts of the Holocaust. The task of maintaining the promise “NEVER AGAIN” and pouring action into faith is upon us. May God the Almighty provide Professor Lipstadt the wisdom and strength to make this appointment into a living reminder of our promise, a breathing and kicking one that endures long after we are no longer here.

This is the latest in the series “Postcards from America – Postcards from Israel,” a collaboration between author and journalist Norma Zager and columnist Ari Bussel.
Zager and Bussel collaborate both in writing and on the air in a point-counter-point discussion of all things Israel-related.Together, they have dedicated the past two decades to promoting Israel and have become “the Jewish Voice on Christian Radio.”
Ari Bussel has been a more active in submitting posts in the past. He is an honest fellow and a big supporter of Israel. That translates into I usually agree with him. In this submission Ari muses on being born American and looking at his Jewish heritage that also has led to an active citizenship in Israel.
In Ari’s musings he touches on a couple things I do not agree with. Ari believes former Vice President Pence conducted his Electoral College count with dignity and that the January 6 protest of a fraudulent 2020 Election began as peaceful but ended as an Insurrection with a capital “I”.
It is my opinion Pence at best acted in cowardice and at worst in collusion to treason. And the peaceful protest was infiltrated by Dem-Marxist agitators who made peaceful Trump supporters appear violent and, in some cases, agitated for violence. There was never an Insurrection with a capital “I”. In hindsight of the ever-increasing proof of an Election Coup perhaps a countercoup is not out of the question. Dem-Marxist criminals definitely would view a countercoup as an insurrection against their illegitimate despotic regime.
Ari’s thoughts on the USA’s power transition are not the focus of this essay. The focus is the ironic nearly mirror transition of power occurring in Israel. Angry Conservative Israeli Jews are seeing their leader pasted with unproven smears and the exercise of Parliamentary shenanigans by Israel’s Left to depose Prime Minister Netanyahu. Christian Zionist supporters (of which I am one) are uneasy with how Netanyahu is getting the boot.
Benjamin Netanyahu – Naftali Bennett
Ari is calling for calm. I’m still not calm about what transpired in America, I can only imagine the displeasure Conservative Israelis are experiencing.
Info to consider about Netanyahu not typically available in the USA:
“A Song of Ascents: Out of the depths I have called Thee, O, God. Lord, listen to my voice, let Your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.” (Psalms 130:1-2)
“A Song of Ascents: I will lift my eyes onto the mountains, from where will my help arrive? My help from the Lord, who makes heaven and earth.” (Psalms 121:1-2)
I wear two hats: I am American by birth and Israeli by lineage.
As an American, I learned of unintended consequences when unleashing great powers over which we may not have complete control. President Trump said, “let us walk to the Capitol,” meaning let us march there and continue our peaceful protest. This day in the park turned into an Insurrection with a capital I.
Vice President Pence was under immense pressure at that time, both by his boss, the President of the United States, and by the Democrats. And yet, he handled himself with dignity and has earned the right to walk his head high. At the end of his term he would say “It was the greatest privilege of my life serving you” or maybe “It was the greatest honor of my life serving you.” Mike Pence has earned my vote if he will choose to run in three and a half years.
As an Israeli and an officer in the Israel Defense Forces, I know that without the IDF, we would cease to exist. We, the Jewish people, have only one homeland. When we did not, some eighty years ago, six million of us – and many of my family – were systematically slaughtered. My parents, the remnants who Survived the Holocaust, vowed with an entire nation: “Never Again.”
Israel today is a thriving country. She is the laboratory of the world, in terms of both innovation and testing. Creativity there knows almost no bounds, so does ingenuity. And the people are most grateful for having a country of their own, after two millennia of exile. We also know we can count on no one than ourselves, and that our fate is in our hands. Indeed, we have an ancient promise and a Covenant for a thousand generations, but God only helps those who help themselves, and being the children of God does not allow us extra privileges in this respect (only extra responsibilities, being a “Light Unto the Nations”).
We had the most amazing four years when President Trump was President, likely the best during our existence as a modern country. Promises that each previous President had made to move the embassy to Jerusalem became a reality. Jerusalem was recognized as Israel’s de facto capital. And a new day has dawned on the Middle East, with normalization of relations – the Abraham Accords – that cannot be undone. Unlike any other action by President Trump that is being demolished, reversed, cancelled and erased, the new reality is here to stay.
Have we been grateful enough? Have we shown our appreciation? I am ashamed to say that the answer to these two questions is likely no. God must have meant to tell us something, hoping we will see, observe and learn a lesson. He who brings down the mighty and lifts the lowly at His will, in an instant, wanted us to change our ways. For four years, President Trump had a Divine Iron Dome protecting him, then in an instant it was all gone, taken away, and his presidency is now being demolished, erased, cancelled, reversed and tarnished to oblivion.
Did we learn the lesson? Likely not.
An Evangelical leader with good people around the world his followers, believers in the Word of God, stood up in rage. For a moment, he felt the world is collapsing around him. Trump – gone. Netanyahu – soon to be gone. He was filled with fright, to the point he threatened to unleash forces of good to fight the outcome of Israel’s fourth election in two years.
We are all fallible, and this Christian leader is but a man. He too erred. He was so anxious that he wrote a letter to the Prime Minister-designate, a letter that should not have been written or sent, and definitely should not have been published. He later would apologize for his haste, tone and verbiage. The Prime Minister-designate has likely already forgiven, for he knew it was not personal; the writer was hurting. Bennett’s kids, like all other kids, err at times too, and we use such moments as teaching tools and move forward.
This Christian leader who walks with kings could have picked up the phone, or knocked on the door of the Prime Minister’s residence and comforted his friend, Benjamin Netanyahu. A Man of God would know how to guide his flock in troubled times. After all, the Prime Minister did not realize (or refused to recognize) until just days ago that these are his last days as the prime minister of all prime ministers of Israel.
Indeed, it is President Rivlin who, at the height of the Pandemic, instructed us to act in this manner exactly, enlisting the words of the Prophet Isaiah (41:6): “One person helped the other, and to his brother he said: ‘Be Strong!’”
It is evident this Christian leader did not mean to turn friends into enemies, or to abandon the Jewish State of Israel. Christian support of Israel and the Jewish people does not depend on any one person and is not given as a reward or a punishment. It is not the annual monetary and military aid by the USA that some radical elements in Congress are threatening to take away. It is given, in whole, without any conditions or expectation. It is pure and complete and enduring.
Those who oppose Israel are standing against none other than Lord of Hosts, our God. Harm the Temple of God’s Eye, and what is to be expected, that God Himself will sit idly and say “amen, good, please proceed?” It may not have been evident to the onlooker, but a close examination of what took place reveals a greater purpose.
So if the threat to unleash forces over which one does not have full control was known to be wrong, what was the intention? We know that when we step onto a path, we may have an idea of where we want to go, but the path may take us elsewhere. And still we trust that all is known and planned and happens for a reason. Likewise here: Only God is all-knowing, and He guides his children and disciples.
The Christian leader started a tsunami that galvanized the Christian leadership-at-large into self-reflection and action. On the Christian side, it yielded reinforcement to oneself, “Why do we support Israel.” Maybe even an opportunity for self-examination, “Have we done enough? What can we do differently? Maybe better? Is our Lord God happy with our actions?”
On the Jewish Israeli side, “Why do the Christians support us, when some of our greatest detractors come from within? Why do they need this headache?” And: “Have we been grateful, have we shown our gratitude?” And further, “What can we – and the State of Israel – do in action to show the Christians we value and appreciate them?”
This process is likely the most important outcome of the current debacle. The Saturday and Sunday people having received a wakeup call that made them reexamine themselves and realize the importance of unity. As the Prophet Ezekiel said (37:15-28): “And bring them together one to another … and make them one … and they will be one in [your] hand … before their [own] eyes.”
The Prophet Ezekiel ends with “And the nations would know that I AM LORD, Sanctify Israel, as My Temple is in their midst for ever.”
The support of the Jewish people and the State of Israel comes from God and no other; and only God can bestow or withdraw it. We are mere instruments. All things happen at God’s will, and we must continue counting our blessings and be most grateful to God for having given us life, and having sustained us and having brought us to the present.
A new day is coming to Israel. A new government is being formed, one that represents the most amazing tapestry of its citizenry. There are extraordinary leaders – individuals of great stature – who have been anointed, and we must pray for their success, which will be our success. In fact, we must do more – we must put action behind our very prayers and do whatever we can to support and further enhance Israel, her leaders, ministers and advisors.
The challenges Israel facing continue to grow. They intensify in strength and frequency. Jews and Christians stand together in support, a great army, a most magnificent one, an army full of soul, meaning and determination – we are not a valley of very dry bones.
Jews and Christians may look like two hats, but we are one and the same, part of the same most magnificent tree. Let us remember the strength in unity, and let us continue to work together.

Due to the time frame on this Memorial Day, I am posting an excellent line-item reasoning of the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians are not a people connected to the Land Promised to the descendants Abraham, Isaac (NOT Ishmael) and Jacob (re-named by God Almighty as Israel BUT not to Esau – Jacob’s twin). I found it on MeWe 5/26/21.
4 “Do not think in your heart, after the Lord your God has cast them out before you, saying, ‘Because of my righteousness the Lord has brought me in to possess this land’; but it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the Lord is driving them out from before you. 5 It is not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart that you go in to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations that the Lord your God drives them out from before you, and that He may [a]fulfill the word which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Something Left-Wing Jews should ponder is the history of their heritage. The more dedicated the Jews were to their Divine Moral Code of the Torah, the more the Almighty ensured possession of The Promise. The more Jews deviated from their Torah Moral Code are times of Diaspora. Currently politics in Modern Israel mirrors the Left/Conservative split that exists in America. Could Jewish-Left abandonment Torah Morals lead to yet another expulsion? Either way … NO PALESTINIAN PEOPLE EVER EXISTED IN HISTORY!
Ari Bussel sent an email highlighting Pro-Israel Rallies that took place across the USA on May 23. The rallies were a valid response pseudo-Palestinian Islamic Terrorist Hamas blasting Jewish civilians with indiscriminate rockets in early May. Which incurred Pro-pseudo-Palestinian violence against Jews in America. This post is late, but people need to be made aware of the rampant Jew-Hatred increasingly aimed violently at people who have a Jewish heritage. In a Land which Leftists divide America with race-baiting, do they seem to think violence against Jews is okay because those of that heritage in America are primarily Caucasian? Or is the American now so Communist in outlook that Jews of any skin color are liable to receive attacks? The rallies are past but the Jew-hatred needs to end!

It is 93 degrees in Boston. A non-Jewish friend is still at a loss to understand “why did Israel attack Palestine?” I am astonished, for there is a new country.
It is 79 degrees and partly cloudy in Miami. A Jewish Columbian friend is sending me a notice of a demonstration today in Beverly Hills. News travel around.
It is 91 degrees and partly cloudy in Washington, D.C. (soon to be a state?). An ambassador, a former Consul General of his country to the Western United States, writes about demonstrations that took place last week here in LA:
I heard there was poor participation at the pro-Israel demo in LA
As I remember in my times there, the pro-IL demo outnumbered the proPal one.
Is it not YOUR responsibility to ensure decent participation???
Then, a local activist here in LA, where it is 70 degrees and beautifully sunny, sends out a reminder of the upcoming demonstration and community event.
On Friday, at a press conference gathering at the Iranian American Jewish Federation, politicians who care about Israel and the fate of the Jewish people stood shoulder-to-shoulder in utter disgust of what took place in WeHo at a Japanese restaurant on La Cienega Blvd. Apparently, a group of pro-Palestinian protestors demanded to know “Who is Jewish” in order to beat them up.
Maybe it played a bit differently, but they were right. Jews should wear a Yellow Star of David, noticeably on their clothes, and they must not sit at the same tables as Aryans. What a Chutzpah of those Jews, and how correct were the demonstrators trying to restore order and calm to the community.
In Beverly Hills, we live in a bubble, a most unique one, that in many ways resembles Israel itself. Commonsense, power-to-do-good, teamwork, majority Jewish, a light unto others. Many years ago, then Mayor MeraLee Goldman was confronted with a demand for “equal time” when she invited anti-terrorism expert Steve Emerson to give a second talk at Council Chambers, part of the Millennium Forum Series she founded.
MeraLee utterly refused, rejecting the demand and the threats that came along. She took a stand. That was some two decades ago.
In the City of West Hollywood, Staff allowed a screening of a virulently anti-Israel movie disguising as a “documentary.” It is the sort of “documentary” that serves as evidence the Jews stole a land not theirs, they are Occupiers, they run an Apartheid Regime and abuse the poor Palestinians. It is a most brutally-honest film that compares Israelis to the new Nazis.
At the end of the screening, a person is so outraged and motivated, that the necessary thing to do is to go out to protest, identify a Jew and beat or kill him, because the Jews are so evil. They deserve all that will happen to them, and anything thus is justified. The world will be such a better place without them, so it is essentially doing a favor to the world.
Such a movie screening that receives the blessing of the most liberal city in the United States is what leads to the Demonization, Dehumanization and Delegitimization of the Jewish People (the three Ds of the BDS movement). [Bold text is Blog Editor’s]
Only one Council Member (today WeHo’s Mayor Lindsey Horvath) objected. The rest touted “Free Speech.” Imagine a movie that claims to be “documentary” that showcases Blacks as rapists, child molesters and killers. There is no need to imagine the consequences. The City would be on fire. But seemingly, Jewish life (and hence Jewish blood) is permissible. [Bold text is Blog Editor’s]
In previous centuries, instead of such “documentaries,” there were similar blood libels, chief among which is that we use the blood of Christian children to bake our Passover Matzos.
It was so important to showcase that travesty of reality, that the Council stood behind Staff and allowed the movie. The pleas of the residents that they were not safe and of hundreds of others fell on deaf ears (all except one).
So why is anyone surprised that a group of “protestors” would come into a dining establishment in WeHo and demand to identify the Jews in order to beat them up, or ridicule them, or terrorize them in some other fashion?
Eighty some years ago, this was a common scene. It was OK to stop a respectable-looking woman and make her clean the sidewalk with a toothbrush, because she was Jewish-filth and deserved it, or to beat a Hassidic Jew almost to death, while the crowd stood in joy.
When good people do nothing, and allow evil to flourish, we should not be surprised of the results. And we should know our past.
MeraLee Goldman stood firm. Terrorists do not get “equal time” to those fighting for the United States. There is no “moral equivalency” to the 9-11 Attacks on the US. There is no excuse. We are not those at fault. She did not allow the enemies of the United States to use our own system and values against us. She stood and protected the body against auto-immune disease.
The City of WeHo took the opposite approach. And if it were to happen again today, likely nothing would have changed. Staff in WeHo would permit and pay for such a screening, under the guise of “free speech” or “the public right to know.”
What still bothers me is my inability to understand WeHo and to forgive what happened there. The ONLY place throughout the Middle East and the African Continent that LGBTQ are protected and enjoy equal rights is in Israel, the only Jewish country in the world. And this is not an easy thing by any stretch of the imagination, because of the clash with the tenants of the religion.
So why go out and attack Israel and the Jewish people? Why allow evil to come in, welcomed and supported? “Take a Stand,” we shouted, implored, begged; but to no avail – it all fell on deaf ears of those determined to see the movie screened. In Gaza, Syria and Iran, Gays are tortured then either hung to death in City Squares or thrown (alive) off roof tops. Clearly Israel is responsible for that too!
Talk is a very cheap commodity nowadays. Action – meaningful action, not lip service – that backs faith is a rare commodity.
First they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out – since I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – since I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – since I was not a Trade Unionist
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – since I was not a Jew
Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak out for me
Let us each take a moment, and check your own four corners –
is action backing up faith?
Do we have the courage to act?
Do we speak against evil, wrongdoing and things that should be done differently?
Take the example of Mayor MeraLee Goldman, or of Mayor Lindsey Horvath. Women taking a stand, even when it is unpopular. Even when they may pay a personal price. Stand up for the right thing. Do not be afraid. And do not give up, for the truth is on your side! [Bold text is Blog Editor’s]

And here for today’s contest: “Let’s Beat a Jew!” (Photo provided by Ari Bussel)
Here is my Rabbi, Rabbi Elijahu Hazany. He may look older, frail, easily beatable and very much Jewish. But he is surrounded by the most powerful weapon of all – deep belief and conviction, and pride in being a Jew. And if asked if he is frightened, he will refer us to Psalms 121:
Yesterday I posted a Justin Smith submission entitled, “A Righteous War Against Hamas Terrorism”. The post in brief was about the evil of Islamic terrorism focused on Israel and how it has overlapped on to American soil with acts of Muslim violence against Jews here in the USA.
In the course of sharing Justin’s submission, I ran into a Dan Bongino Rumble video posted on 5/21/21. After you get through about three-minutes of ads, Bongino talks about Jew-hating Hamas and the hypocrisy of Dem-Marxists whining about Arabs-who-call-themselves-Palestinians casualties as if it is fine and dandy for Antisemite Muslims to kill Jews but when Israel responds with their own deadly force, the Dem-Marxists cry foul. Bongino points out the Islamic credo is kill Jews first then kill Christians. THESE ANIMALS NEED TO BE CONDEMNED AND NOT APPROVED! This is a great Bongino episode.

I begin with stating what Dem-Marxist Lefties and Resurrected-Christ-hating Muslims abhor: The Arab descendants of the Arab-Muslims who immigrated to then Ottoman controlled lands transformed from uninhabitable land to prosperous land by returning Jews are a fake-people. After the Ottomans lost WWI, the land reverted to British control under name the British Mandate for Palestine. During this Mandatory period, the returning Jews to their Land of Promise were called Palestinians as much as the Arabs residing there. The Arabs in the Jewish Land were not termed “Palestinian” until a combined conspiracy between the then Arab League and the Soviet Union created an umbrella organization of Islamic terrorists after invading Arabs lost two wars with a then new independent Israel. Arabs derived the name Palestinian from the terrorist umbrella group known as the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).

I call these fake-people with no actual history to the Land Faux-Palestinians. You will read in Justin Smith’s essay on the current Israel-Hamas hostilities and ensuing Muslim rioting in the USA refers to these fakers with the diminutive “palestinian”. That works for me. As I prepare to post this, a tentative ceasefire exists even though – as usual – Muslims are provoking Israel patience with acts of violence.
Justin takes a great look at Muslim rioters on U.S. soil, the right of Israel to defend itself and a brief history Muslim violence against Jews merely reclaiming their ancient heritage.
(Because I am a bit late in posting Justin’s submission, I have not performed the editorial sourcing this awesome essay deserves. I have posted voluminously on many of the points Justin asserts. Feel free to search the blog for corroboration.)

Palestinian Protests in America Breeding Grounds for Future Terrorists

“They are flooding all over the city now buried into torpor and sleep and wine, the invaders. And meanwhile, through its open gates, others irrupt to join their henchmen’s platoons.” ~ Virgil, ‘The Aeneid’ (The burning of Troy) [Blog Editor: I could not find this specific quote by either Virgil or in the Aeneid. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. My guess: there are variations of English translations of Virgil’s Latin.]
My blood has ran hot with anger over the past several days, at the sight of Palestinians waving their flag in the streets of America, from I-278 near Los Angeles, in front of the Federal Building on May 15, 2021; to downtown Memphis and Nashville on May 18, 2021; as well as in numerous other cities, including Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Dearborn and Atlanta. They have the freedom of expression right to fly that disgusting flag, representative of the Palestinian Liberation Organization and the Hamas terrorists, who have committed murder and mayhem, across the globe for the past six decades, but it is a fight they should have kept in the Middle East, if it’s one they believed must be waged against Israel, even though an accurate accounting of history exhibits multiple fallacies and a myth surrounding the “palestinian people”.
Jew-Hating Faux-Palestinians Displaying Hate for Israel (photo collage sent from Justin)
It should be a revolting sight for any true American, who loves the idea of America and its Freedom and Liberties of days past, because whether these “palestinians” are recent legal or illegal immigrants or second and third generation “American citizens”, nothing can be clearer than the fact that they consider themselves Palestinian and Muslim first and a U.S. citizen or “an American” second, and they are here as part of a larger agenda, that has very little to do with desiring a better life and everything to do with subverting America and its alliance with Israel, in order to eventually eradicate the sovereign Jewish nation of Israel.
This is reminiscent of a “peaceful” protest by the Muslim community in my hometown of Murfreesboro, TN on January 9, 2009 and again in 2012 en masse in support of Hamas murderers and terrorists in Gaza, along with the discovery that one of the board members of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro was a radical jihadist.
It also brings up memories of my youth and witnessing a majority Christian nation, Lebanon, being slowly devastated and destroyed, building by building, community by community, with one bombing to the next and many thousands murdered by armed marauding bands of PLO “freedom fighters” and their Iranian Hezbollah allies, during the 1970s. Through this the early benevolent legal immigration and the massive subsequent illegal invasion of Muslims, from Jordan, Syria and Iran, all with their own particular Islamic identifiers and nomenclature, Lebanon soon became a nation largely held hostage by Muslims who loved her not.
I recall the second civil war in India that resulted in the new Muslim nation of Bangladesh, and Dacca and the Muslim massacre of eight hundred Hindus, including many women. Their corpses laid out for days feeding the vultures. A great cloud of vultures descended on the area, unrolling the bowels of the dead Hindus, like so many paper streamers, and taking them in their beaks up into the sky.
On May 18th, it was [JOS]reported by my good friend, Dave Urbanski (Blaze Media) that a caravan of Palestinians drove through LA and stopped to assault diners at one restaurant, after asking for any Jews to identify themselves. Two Jewish men spoke up and were immediately attacked, just for unabashedly declaring themselves to be of the Jewish faith, in a country where everybody is supposed to be tolerant of one another’s faith.
[Twitter video found on The Blaze showing the violence of Jew-hating Muslims in Los Angeles:
Hamas attacks Jews in Israel so Muslims calling themselves Palestinians attack Jews in Los Angeles.]
Please note that these are people of like minds with their Muslim brethren in Gaza, who elected Hamas to lead them, by way of “free elections” that only offered Hamas or PLO candidates to choose between; the same Hamas that is largely seen and designated as a terrorist organization across the Free World, what’s left of it, and supposedly the U.S. too. These are the same people who use our Freedoms against us, to end them, because they believe that ultimately Islam and Allah must reign supreme over all, including America and the West.
They are of the same ilk as the Muslim Brotherhood that has been operating in America, since 1962. These are the same sort who assassinated Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in 1981, due to his peace initiative with Israel, and the same type who took control of Egypt during the Muslim Brotherhood coup of the “Arab Spring” — brothers to the terrorist hijackers who took down the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.
America hasn’t been on such a precarious footing, since the 1960s, when it experienced an unprecedented wave of Muslim “students” from the large Islamic regions of Africa, who were funded by Middle Eastern Islamic nations, under the slogan “Revival of Islam.” A direct result that saw immediate harmful consequences was the emergence of a particular sect of Islam known as the Nation of Islam and the Black Muslim Movement — currently led by Louis Farrakhan, a white hating racist — even though the largest portion of Black America were still standing alongside Dr Martin Luther King, Jr., a Baptist minister.
For the Whites, the Black Muslims held, and still hold to this day, a ferocious hate, along with contempt for Martin Luther King.
How curious and maddening it is to hear the “palestinians” wail over being abused, by Israel, when it’s their leaders who instigated and initiated the current conflict, as well as each and every past conflict in recent memory. One must suppose that they would have the Jews of Israel simply lay down and die before them, without any protest or defense of themselves, in the face of some 3500 rockets raining down upon them.
As such, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is well within his rights and authority to do everything he can to stop these terrorists dead in their tracks and ensure that they do not soon, if ever again, attempt to do harm to Israel; but given the dynamics and the centuries old fight being played out in real time, over the past seven decades, this is a war that will not end, until one or the other is defeated definitively and finally, since Hamas will never agree to allowing Israel to exist in peace.
This is especially true, in light of the fact that many legal Israeli residents and citizens of the Islamic faith have now turned on the Jews within their own country, burning neighborhoods, hundreds of cars and many synagogues too.
In this sense, PM Netanyahu is one hundred percent right to also rebuff the Idiot in the Oval Office, Joe Biden, and refuse Biden’s demand that he basically standdown. Biden is just as wrong on this issue as he has been over the past 50 years on every foreign policy issue, holding true to his record even now, inconsistent and weak, rather than fully supporting Israel and demanding that Gaza and its Hamas leaders recognize Israel’s right to exist.
On May 12th, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) stated:
“The conflict we are seeing is the direct result of the tragic mistakes of the Biden foreign policy. And when you are ambiguous, when you are agonizing, when you undermine our support for Israel, what happens is it encourages the terrorists who attack and launch the kind of missile and rocket attacks we’re seeing right now.” … adding that President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem in 2017 “made clear to our friends and our enemies that we stand unshakably with Israel.“
Astounding as some may find it, there actually are a couple of Democrats who really get it and are supporting Israel in its these tumultuous and deadly times.
Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) went on the record, tweeting:
“Firing rockets at civilians in Israel is an act of terrorism, period. The latest rocket fire underscores the need for missile defense programs, such as Iron Dome, which protects Israeli citizens — both Arabs and Jews — from the terrorism of Hamas.”
And, from the floor of the House, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla), chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East, North Africa, and Global Counterterrorism, stated:
“Please don’t be fooled by false choices. Israel and Hamas? If I am asked (to choose) between a terrorist organization and our democratic ally, I will stand with Israel every day of the week.”
Nobody who understands history can watch as these Muslims, these faux “palestinians”, march in our streets in their Palestinian Liberation Army war garb, cowls, djelabalahs and chadors, alongside their Communist allies of the Democratic Party, in their suits and ties, all professing to be “pacifists” — the Islamofascists, Bolsheviks and traitors to America hand-in-hand — and espousing the PLO propaganda even in the halls of our Congress, without having their blood boil. All are anti-American, anti-Christian and anti-Freedom, and it is their love for the authoritarian collective — the Theocratic State in regard to the palestinians — and their hate for America that unites them. And the aforementioned are masters at using our freedoms against us to actually destroy those same freedoms.
These pacifists seem to be calling for a unilateral “peace”, one where Israel doesn’t fight back and they remain free to bomb Israel at will. What war are they raging against? [Is it] Only the way fought by way of Israel’s superior armaments? What about Hamas rockets given to them by Iran or their war waged by way of suicide-bombers that take out entire city blocks at a time and murder thousands of innocents?
And all the while, the hypocrites [as in Dem-Marxists] never wave their rainbow flags to condemn Hamas or general Islamic initiated terrorism, as the suicide bombers and remote-controlled bombs take out entire city blocks, like they did in Beirut, while imams preach “holy war” from their mosques.
For one who may be a Christian, it’s worth noting that Jesus really wasn’t much of a pacifist, as he commanded us to hate evil just as he does, and despite his admonishment to “turn the other cheek”, he also was the one who said, in the Gospel of St Matthew, Chapter 10, verses 34-35:
“Think not that I am come to bring peace on earth. I came not to bring peace. I came to bring a sword. I came to separate the son from the father, the daughter from the mother, the daughter-in-law from the mother-in-law.”
And in the meantime, the Leftists and the Liberals, the ugly and intellectually dishonest secularists among us, spout their fear driven propaganda, as they wave their white flags and kiss the ring of the Islamists and sing out the glory of the Koran and Allah.
Recently, Representative Cori Bush, a Democrat from Missouri, actually had the ignorant, damnable temerity to connect this recent outbreak of violence between Israel and Gaza to police brutality and racial injustice in America, as he equated the Communist Black Lives Matter movement to the “palestinians” liberation movement. He added that he opposed sending money to Israel due to its “occupation and systems of violent oppression and trauma”.
Not to be outdone, a first generation “Palestinian American”, Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) stated that she was “a reminder … that Palestinians do indeed exist, that we are human”, while going on to castigate her counterparts in Congress for their “unconditional support” for Israel that “has enabled the erasure of Palestinian Life”.
Often noted by Yasser Arafat, former leader of Fatah and head of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (1969-2004), an infamous terrorist organization and an ally of Iran’s Hezbollah terrorists:
“We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state. We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion. We Palestinians will take over everything, including al of Jerusalem … Peace for us means the destruction of Israel. We are preparing for an all-out war, a war which will last for generations.”
If one should wonder about the heartless, purposeful resolve of Arafat, everything becomes clear, once one is presented the fact that Arafat was the nephew of Amin al-Husseini, the former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Husseini paid homage to Hitler in 1944, and he was also responsible for organizing some 24,000 Bosnian Muslims under the command of the SS to hunt Jews to feed to the furnaces.
The devil in the details is that the so-called “palestinians” have been given many opportunities to have a “homeland” and a real peace with Israel, which is how they gained Gaza, although it must be noted, they were handed a “homeland” the day that the nation of Jordan was split and created from the lands of the Palestinian Mandate in 1921. But any gain is never enough, so long as a sovereign Jewish nation exists, and the palestinians have become masters at playing the victim, from the very beginning; they are in this plight, because the Arab nations perpetuated the myth of the existence of a “palestinian people”, who have simply been Arabs all along, the descendants of those Muslims who attacked Israel in 1948.
The word “palestine” does not occur in the Old or New Testament at all; however, after the Jewish revolt of Bar-Kokhba in 135 A.D., the Romans renamed Judea to be “Palestine” or “Syria Palestina”, with the intention of obliterating its Jewish identity. The earlier name never disappeared, and as late as the 4th century, Christian author Epiphanus referred to “Palestine that is Judea”.
The “Arab Palestinian” was never a serious age-old or even century-old national identity. The term was introduced as a tool after the 1967 Six Day War, and, according to the British Palestine Royal Commission Report, “In the twelve centuries or more that have passed since the Arab [read Islamic] conquest … In the realm of thought, in science or in letters, it (Palestine) made no contribution to modern civilization.”
As Rosemary Sayigh wrote in the ‘Journal of Palestine Studies’, “a strongly defined Palestinian identity did not emerge until 1968, two decades after expulsion”. It had taken twenty years to establish the myth prescribed by Muslim activist Musa Alami.
Upon the emergence of the Sovereign Jewish State of Israel in 1948, there were no more than 430,000 genuine Arab/Muslim refugees, although the UN asserted 500,000 officially. But ironically, more than 750,000 Jews were dispossessed and forcibly expelled from surrounding Arab nations during this same period. This is the same UN that for many long years protected the Islamic fundamentalist dictatorship in Sudan, as well as in any country where such existed.
President Truman’s International Development Advisory Board, March 7, 1951; and the Arab sponsored Institute for Palestinian Studies in Beirut agreed that 68% of the Arab refugees left in 1948 at the urging of Arab leaders and Islamic imams, rather than any expulsion by the Israeli military. As some Arab leaders demanded the “return” of the “expelled” refugees, Emile Ghoury, Secretary of the Arab Higher Command, told the ‘Beirut Telegraph’ on August 6, 1948:
“It is inconceivable that the refugees should be sent back to their homes while they are occupied by Jews … It would serve as the first step toward Arab recognition of the state of Israel and Partition.”
From Khaled Al-Azym’s 1972 memoirs (Syrian Prime Minister 1948):
“Since 1948, it is we who demanded the return of the refugees … while it is we who made them leave … We brought disaster upon … Arab refugees by … bringing pressure upon them to leave … We have rendered them dispossessed … Then we exploited them in executing crimes of murder, arson and throwing bombs upon … men, women and children — all this in the service of political purposes.”
Today, the Jewish Temple Mount is the third holiest site in Islam, behind Saudi Arabia’s Mecca and Medina, but Muslims believe once they claim a piece of land, it belongs to Islam forever, whether those claims are based on facts or a lie, exhibited in their claim to Jerusalem. During Mohammed’s lifetime, Jerusalem was an unimportant city in the Byzantine Empire and a Christian city without a single mosque. The Al Aqsa mosque is a conquest mosque built atop the ruins of the Church of Saint Mary of Justinian. And, although Islamic tradition says Mohammed ascended into Heaven from Al Aqsa mosque, there is no record of Mohammed ever having been to Jerusalem.
After the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Albert Memmi, a Tunisian born writer, responded to a Libyan official’s invitation to Libyan Jews to return to Libya:
“Is it true that you have said that the Jews have always lived at peace in the Arab countries? And that you have nothing against Jews, only Zionists? … The error which may have been made at Deir Yassine [Palestinian Jewish Irgun and Stern troops inadvertently killed 250 Arab civilians in 1948] is constantly thrown in our faces. Ah, but we have undergone a hundred Deir Yassines, a thousand Deir Yassines! And not only in Russia, Germany or Poland, but also at the hand of the Arab people; yet the world has never been upset over it! … If you really wanted to avoid having us come together on this particular bit of land … Israel … then why did you hound us and expel us from the regions over which your power extends?”
Just as an illustration, let’s recall that 1956’s Egypt held thousands of Jews without trial, after Egypt’s Sinai Campaign, confiscating their property and assets. Around that same time frame, in Iraq, Zionism became a capital crime, and Jews were hanged in the center of Baghdad, in front of cheering crowds of Muslims; and, although no laws authorized the confiscation of Jewish property in Iraq before 1950, the Jews were stripped of millions of dollars through economic discrimination and government extortion.
Anti-Jewish broadcasts from Egypt, in response to the partition of Palestine resulted in the December 2nd, 1947 pogrom in Aden. Eighty-two Jews were murdered, scores more were wounded, while 111 Jewish stores were robbed bare and over 200 Jewish homes and four synagogues were burned to the ground. Aden’s 1958 riots directed violence and murder at the Jewish community once again, and after the 1967 Six-Day War, it became apparent that the Islamofascists were preparing to massacre what remained of the Jewish community, so the British evacuated them. And this scene was repeated time and again across the entire Arab/Muslim world.
This current crop of “palestinian refugees” who have fled to America have been spoon fed the propaganda of Islamofascism and the myth of their victimhood from birth, and they believe it whole-heartedly, uneducated in this respect as they are. It is this same ignorance that holds them currently incapable of fully appreciating and comprehending the concepts of freedom and republics that function via democratic mechanisms; they reject freedom and true liberty because both are too different and antithetical to the Islamic ideology, and their Allah who commands all, who decides human destiny, leaving no real choice for any man or even any room for common sense and reason.
The Palestinians in the streets of LA, Memphis, Nashville, Atlanta, Philadelphia and all points in between have grown up learning to be good Muslims, in the best evil sense of any understanding by an Islamofascist, and, more than this, they follow a certain “Palestinian code” as it was delivered by George Habash, a terrorist who carried out some of Europe’s bloodiest attacks. They have spent a lifetime learning that America and Europe, too, are their enemies, alongside Israel, and that they must strive to unite the entire Muslim world against them and wage an all-out war against the West. And, as a part of that war, along with acts of terror, they have been taught to work to achieve victory by overwhelming the West through immigration and procreation, to advance step by step, inch by inch, year by year, and decade after decade — determined, stubborn and patient — until they have expanded across the planet and Islam reigns supreme.
Trump’s Abraham Accords mean nothing to these Muslims, in the grand scheme of things, for too many reasons to list.
For now, Americans are fighting against this evil and many others with the pen, but there comes a day when the pen is no longer enough, after one sees one’s country attacked and put upon for too long a time, by so many enemies aligned and allied with one another, both foreign and domestic. And, just as any normal red-blooded American would do in the face of an invasion, one fights with everything within them; one makes war no matter how ferocious the oncoming assault and attempts to subdue them might be, no matter what the Marxists and Islamofascists of the world have to say, because the difference between living under any tyranny and in Freedom and Liberty demands such a war, a dutiful, righteous and legitimate war.
This is the same reason Israel fights. They fight to exist. They fight to live free. Their war is a righteous and legitimate war.

Black Lives Matter is not only a godless Communist race-baiting organization dedicating to ending the Founding Fathers’ Constitutional government and fomenting violence against White Americans, BUT they are now a group of dedicated Jew-haters joining Islamists lying about Israel’s Biblical land of Judea-Samaria.
In this video exposé the BLM is exposed promoting Land stolen by Arab Muslims calling themselves Palestinians (a group of Arabs created in 1964 ex nihilo by Muslim Jew-haters and the now non-existent USSR to terrorize Israeli Jews) as occupied. Biblically allotted/Promised land is Jewish land. Any Jew-hating people residing in land given by God are the actual violent occupiers. Of course Muslims don’t view that due to the false-prophet Jew-hating Muhammad and anyone dedicated to Communism are atheists. What strange Red-Greenbedfellows.
TOM TRENTO, Director of The United West introduces Damon Rosen’s powerful expose of the Marxist organization “Black Live Matter.”
Not only is this terrorist group intent on destroying America but it also has its sights on Israel, working with Islamic terrorists, in a Red-Green axis, to destroy any and everything that has a Judeo-Christian foundation.
How can any Jew or Israel-supporting Christian support this organization or movement?! Its leaders and spokespeople are openly hostile to the Jewish state and people. It’s ironic that the people preaching against hate and intolerance, are among the most hateful, intolerant groups on Earth. Please watch and share this video, especially with your family and friends who have been caught up in the media-induced hysteria.
Damon Rosen is an investigative activist with The United West and currently lives and works in Israel.
OUR MISSION The United West is dedicated to defending and advancing Western Civilization against the kinetic and cultural onslaught of Shariah Islam so that America remains a land of freedom, justice, and opportunity grounded in the principles of our Constitutional Republic. The United West has taken up this challenge because the ever increasing forces of darkness, whether political, social, or philosophical seek to destroy, subvert or subjugate all that Americans hold to be right and true. The United West will succeed in this mission by educating, training and activating Americans to stand on proven principles, guide public opinion and amend public policy so that leadership is selected which affirm the canons of jurisprudence. Specifically, TUW educates and activates freedom minded people, wherever they may live, to effectively develop strategies and tactics which propagate exceptionalism of Western Civilization over and against the totalitarian choke-hold of Shariah Islam. Immediately, our objectives include the mobilization of Americans and Europeans to stand firmly for the defense and protection of the State of Israel. THE UNITED WEST combines top-shelf academics with a military-grade activism to distinguish itself from every counter-jihad organization. There is no other nongovernmental organization like it, in the world.
Dems hate Israel and support those who hate Israel; ergo a vote for a Dem on any level of politics (local, State and National) is a vote for racist Jew-Hatred Antisemitism. That includes self-loathing Left-Wing Jews who’d rather support Marxist Dems than their Jewish heritage in Israel.
Adina Kutnicki essentially states my position.
Your generosity is always appreciated – various credit, check
The Democrat Party of yesteryear, tradition-wise, has always been supportive of Israel. No longer. At its base, this support, for the most part, has always been derived from the shared values inherent within both nations.
As it stands, the Party’s current incarnation (as it moved left-ward, incrementally, over a period of years) is ideologically imbued and invested in Israel’s destruction. America’s, too. This tragic truth is plain for all to see, that is, if one’s eyes are wide open enough to absorb the seismic upheavals taking place all over America.
Indeed, those pulling the strings within the Democrat Party are more than thrilled that domestic terrorists are tearing the nation down. To wit, they lend them more than a wink and a nod. In reality, they are cheering them on and funding them! For starters and for further edification, commence your educational journey here:
Not only that, the ammunition being used to separate the heretofore special bond between the U.S. and Israel is based on the mother of all lies, that is, that Israel is a usurper and an “illegal occupier” of another’s land!
But don’t take this word for setting the record straight towards the truth of all truths. Rather, read for yourselves what is enshrined in international law, as well as in historical fact. The preeminent expert in this legal arena is Howard Grief(deceased, June 2013).
In this regard, the following should be more than enough reason — at least, for all those who still believe that truth matters — for so-called traditional Democrats, centrists, if you will, to jump ship. Overboard.
New letter from progressives to Pompeo brings harmful ideas to the forefront of American politics – By Steve Postal | July 9, 2020
The Lawfare Project sent House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a letter opposing progressive Democrats’ “uninformed and inaccurate” policy proposals towards Israel. The Lawfare Project, according to their website, provides legal counsel and services to, and protects the free speech of, members of the Jewish and pro-Israel community. According to the Lawfare Project, the progressive Democrats’ labeling Israel’s plans to establish control over parts of Judea and Samaria as “annexation” rather than “sovereignty” places the Democrats at odds with U.S. law, “which has long recognized the rights of the Jewish people to a national home in Palestine.”
The Lawfare Project’s letter to Speaker Pelosi was in response to another letter sent by progressive Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and others to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in late June. This progressive letter is the latest in a series of Democratic communications that serve to harm the U.S.–Israeli partnership. Democrats are now bringing harmful and false ideas, once considered taboo, to the forefront of American politics. Those ideas are the following:
The “settlements” in Judea and Samaria are illegitimate.
Contrary to popular wisdom, Israel has a rightto build the “settlements,” which are Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, the heartland of the Land of Israel. (There are currently about 450,000 Israeli citizens living in Judea and Samaria, in addition to another 215,000 living in eastern Jerusalem.) The Trump administration, in the Pompeo Doctrine, stated that it does not recognize the “settlements” as illegal.
Israel’s claim to Judea and Samaria is an “occupation.”
Israel’s claim to Judea and Samaria is not one of “occupation,” and Republicans know this. I could not find any reference of the Trump administration referring to the “occupation.” Also, a letter addressed to Netanyahu in support of Israel, signed by 120 House Republicans in late June, does not mention “occupation.”
In contrast, Democrats are convinced otherwise. The progressive Democrat letter mentioned above refers to Judea and Samaria as “occupied Palestinian territory,” “Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967,” and “occupied West Bank,” with Israel being the “Occupying Power.” Biden is also on the record for opposing the so-called “occupation.”
Israel does not have a right to apply sovereignty to at least some of Judea and Samaria.
Israel has a right to apply sovereignty at least some of Judea and Samaria, and Republicans know this. The Trump administration has recognized that right by allowing Israel to apply sovereignty to about 30 percent of Judea and Samaria. The House Republican letter, mentioned above, states that “Israel has the right to make sovereign decisions independent of outside pressure,” and “reaffirm[s] Israel’s right to sovereignty.”
Recent statements by Democrats is the latest in a push to continue to make Israel a partisan wedge in U.S. politics, one that I previously discussed in The American Spectator. It remains to be seen if moderate voices within the Democratic party will be able to reclaim the narrative. Until then, the Democratic party will continue to undermine the U.S.–Israel relationship.
Israel’s Jewish Left is so thirsty for power it makes a power-sharing deal with Jew-hating Israeli Arabs. It is no wonder that self-loathing Jewish Multicultural Leftist are leading their nation to destruction. Adina Kutnicki lays out the truth in this article.

Israel’s Leftist Generals, Blue & White Party Leaders, BETRAY Majority Zionist Public: A Decision Which Will Live In Infamy!
WITH all eyes on the fall-out from Coronavirus, it is at this critical juncture in time that Israel’s Blue & White leadership, a so-called “centrist” party, sunk to the depths of betrayal. Yes, they will go down in Israeli history as the double-crossers of the Jewish homeland – and it is no exaggeration! Ignominious.
AS former Generals, the “Three Banditos” (Benny Gantz, Gabi Ashkenzai, and “Bogie” Ya’alon, + featured second to the right, Yair Lapid….a dumb as bricks career politician who entered politics on his father’s coattails, that is, Tommy….nepotism at its ugliest form) entered the political arena with a leftward tilt, never mind their (past) Zionist bonafides. Lo and behold, having fought the very same Arab Muslim enemies on the battlefield, they have now embraced the radical, anti-Zionist, anti-Semitic, pro-terrorist Arab Joint List as their coalition partners!
EGREGIOUSLY, in a most cynical betrayal, they have aligned with the enemies of the Jewish State to cement their grips on power. Simply put, to catapult into the political fray, they found it politically expedient to curry favor with Israel’s leftist triad; the media, the legal, and the academic fraternities, among others – those who never miss an opportunity to back-up the fifth column within the Jewish State! By the way, the aforementioned triad are mirror images, ape-like, of the fascist-left in the U.S. Yes, it is true.
CONSIDER the following as indictable charge-sheets:
When the Joint List, the Arab party that emerged as Israel’s third largest in the recent round of elections, endorsed Benny Gantz as its candidate for prime minister on Sunday, pundits took to every available perch to declare the moment historic. After all, no Arab party has ever endorsed a Jewish leader, and Ayman Odeh, the party’s Obama-esque leader, seized the moment properly by tweeting a line from Psalms. To many, this felt like a breath of fresh air, a surge of coexistence and compromise after Benjamin Netanyahu’s hard-line policies.
The hosannas, however, are premature: The Joint List, sadly, remains a vehemently anti-Zionist party whose members have often expressed their support for convicted terrorists. All it takes is a brief look at the party and its principles to learn why Gantz—whose Blue and White party is currently Israel’s most popular, with 33 Knesset seats—should immediately and forcefully reject this endorsement.
Most egregious among the party’s members, perhaps, is Heba Yazbak. A doctoral student studying gender and colonialism at Tel Aviv University, Yazbak has occasionally taken to Facebook to praise convicted terrorists, most notably Samir Kuntar. On April 22, 1979, Kuntar, the teenage son of a wealthy Lebanese family, landed a rubber dingy on the shore of the northern Israeli town of Nahariya. Together with three other terrorists, he shot and killed a police officer before breaking into the apartment of the Haran family and taking them hostage. Smadar, the family’s mother, managed to hide with her 2-year-old daughter, Yael. Fearful that the toddler’s cries will give them away, she stifled the child’s whimpers, accidentally suffocating her to death. Kuntar then led the family father, Danny, to the nearby beach, together with his 4-year-old daughter, Einat. When IDF soldiers arrived to free the hostages, Kuntar executed Danny in front of his daughter’s eyes. He then grabbed Einat, and, using the butt of his rifle, smashed her head against a nearby rock.
Kuntar was released from Israeli prison in 2008 in return for the bodies of two fallen Israeli soldiers. He received a hero’s welcome from Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, and continued to plan attacks against Israelis, earning himself an international terrorist designation from the United States Department of State. He was killed in 2015 in a strike south of Damascus, which many believe was orchestrated by Israel.
In addition to praising Kuntar, Yazbak also publicly supported an Israeli-Arab citizen indicted for being a Hezbollah spy. Israel’s Supreme Court—which approved the disqualification of two far-right politicians for alleged incitement to violence—found no problem with Yazbak’s opinions, allowing her to run for office.
After being accused of spying for Hezbollah, Bassel Ghattas, another Israeli-Arab MK, served a prison sentence for smuggling cellphones to a convicted Palestinian terrorist.
Just behind Shehadah, at No. 3, is Ahmed Tibi, the former adviser to Yasser Arafat. A popular fixture with Arab leaders the world over, Tibi has cozied up to anyone from Bashar Assad to Muammar al-Qaddafi. In 2012, he was reprimanded by the Knesset after delivering a speech in Ramallah to celebrate the International Day of Shaheeds, or martyrs. “The occupier wants to call you terrorists,” he said, “but we say there’s nothing more noble than dying for your homeland.” The Knesset’s Ethics Committee denounced Tibi, calling his speech “cheering on terrorism and violence.”….continuereading the “who’s who in Arab terror” that Blue & White leaders have joined forces with!
Minister of Education, MK Rabbi Rafi Peretz referred to MK Ayman Odeh‘s attack on Knesset Speaker Edelstein after his resignation.
“Blue and White, this is on you. Take a look at how an MK who supports Hamas and Hezbollah talks about Yuli Edelstein, Speaker of the Knesset, former prisoner of Zion, a man who has sacrificed [much of his life] for the State of Israel. A sad day for the State of Israel.”
“You are all to blame for breaking the delicate balance that has always been within the Knesset during the formation of the government instead of putting the small politics aside and establishing a unity government which is so vital at the moment,” tweeted Peretz.
Members of the Joint List have consistently made anti-Israel and anti-IDF statements and shown support for terrorists.
Members of the Joint List have consistently expressed anti-Israel and anti-IDF ideas as well as support for terrorism and terrorists……
The Welfare Committee has the care of terror victims under its purview.
Member of Knesset (MK) Kitty Shitrit of the Likud party accused Blue and White of “carrying out a targeted assassination of the public’s trust and seriously hurting the feelings of the bereaved families.”
Blue and White stated during its last campaign that it would not rely in any way on the Joint List for support, a promise it broke days after the elections.
Shitrit added that “there is no way to obscure this disgrace in which terrorist supporters are put at the head of a committee that deals, among other things, with the rehabilitation of the IDF’s disabled, with helping victims of terrorism and with the confiscation of allowances from terrorist families.”
The “three generals,” meaning Blue and White leaders Benny Gantz, Moshe Ya’alon and Gabby Ashkenazi, “will be forever remembered in infamy,” she said.
Elihai Ben Yishai, whose sister Ruth, her husband Ehud and three of their children were butchered in a terrorist attack in March 2011, called the new situation the “blood paradox.”
MK Ahmed Tibi of the Joint List, was “consultant to arch-murderer Arafat, and will chair the Welfare Committee and that take care of the status and rights of …victims of terrorism.”
TELLINGLY, all of which is best explained and fully exposed by the inestimable Caroline Glick via The New Arab Bloc and the Future of Israeli Sovereignty.
FINALLY, as enraging as it is that Israel’s war-horses sold out the national interest – yes, they did – it was not unexpected at this end. Not at all. This is more than supported by several analyses – two of which are prima facie evidence thereof. In fact, it was only a matter of timing when the “other shoe”, so to speak, dropped. It did.
Four years ago (April 2016), this site foretold the current unfolding disaster:
(The Joint List, March 11, 2020, looking triumphant – in the “cat-bird’s seat”, again, due to the “Three Banditos” and HUSSEIN Obama’s electoral interference – as they march into “negotiations” with Blue & White!)
The Coronavirus Panic seems to have affected giving on this blog. I am on a disability but my wife has done quite well on a sales job and a Network Marketing healthy coffee (healthy as in I’ve lost 82 lbs. in a year) business that also provides vitamin-mineral-anti-oxidant supplements that might be beneficial for your family. I’d love to share the coffee business corporate name, but if you know anything about Network Marketing companies, they get a bit cranky about that practice in their policies and procedures. Suffice it to say my wife’s Network Marketing business provides FREE websites for online marketing. In my wife’s case she has bought several Domain Names linked to her website. My darling wife has told me the company has waved the sign-up fee for buyers during the pandemic crisis. You can access Diana Houk’s coffee network via this domain name: http://www.skinnyoptimumcoffee.com/.
Addressing my revenue issue. Among the many medical I’m overcoming I am only sharing one medical bill issue. I use a CPAP machine/mask in my sleeping hours. I need 10 people to donate $5.00 to my PayPal account to help pay a CPAP supply bill. It is my opinion this Pandemic is temporary and when over, our family revenue issue will self-correct. Until then please consider a onetime donation using the PayPal button on this Blog or this NCCR PayPal embedded link.
(UPDATE: I am pleased to announce the blessed launch ofAmerica’sCivilWarRising. org, ACWR, on March 10, 2020. As an instrumental part of this unique, no-holds-barred Intel/Patriotic site, rest assured, in due course, it will cause an earthquake across the Internet)
In addition to being an investigative journalist, I am a consultant to a privately-held Homeland Security entity – related endeavors, too. My first book,BANNED: How Facebook Enables Militant Islamic Jihad,is available online and in major bookstores. In under 24 hours at AMAZON (Sept. 2016), it jumped to Number One in HOT New Releases!
For the most part, my work-product revolves around militant Islamic jihad, with a particular emphasis on the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia. My geo-political analysis appears at various Zionist and Conservative media outlets. As an example of my long-standing efforts, I contributed to an in-depth investigative series at FrontPage Magazine with Lee Kaplan from 2003-2007. We are still working together.
Segue over to his interview at Iran’s Press TV (one of many tv debates/interviews) where he debated a rabid self-hating Israeli, a so-called Jew – who supports every manner of terror against Israelis/Jews, even the kidnapping (subsequent murder) of 3 Israeli Jewish teenagers. It can be foundhere. He is a …READ ENTIRETY
