From Buddy Macy

Friends & Correspondents:

My cousin, Eugene Narrett – professor, writer, painter, commentator and strong advocate for Israel and the Jewish People – died tragically this past Friday evening after being struck by a hit-and-run driver in Brattleboro, Vermont. Eugene was a pedestrian, having just visited an art gallery a short distance away. It was three weeks short of his 65th birthday.

Funeral services for Eugene Narrett will take place this Wednesday, December 11, at the Jewish Memorial Chapel at 841 Allwood Road in Clifton, NJ, commencing at 11a.m.

Eugene received a PhD in English Literature from Columbia University and taught Art, Art History, History, Literature and Philosophy. He had an extraordinary knowledge and appreciation of the Classics , and had reached a scholarly level in the area of Jewish studies. In his early 20's, Eugene began educating himself about the history of ancient and modern Israel, and he became one of the foremost authorities on the geopolitics of the Middle East, providing commentary on numerous radio programs, including Israel National Radio (many times) and the Barry Farber Show.

Dr. Narrett held strong views about Israel, based on history, Jewish identity and the current reality. He believed in Israel's Biblical, legal and historical rights to all of the land between the Mediterranean Sea and Jordan River, and was an outspoken critic of the 1993 Oslo Accords between Israel and the Arab-"Palestinians." He would be quick to point out the deadly consequences of that failed political strategy. Many of Dr. Narrett's writings and radio commentaries may be accessed through his Israel End Times blog,

Treat and educate yourself by listening to Dr. Eugene Narrett on this edition of the Tovia Singer Show.

Eugene, may the Almighty comfort you amongst the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. And, may all of your hopes and dreams for Israel come to fruition in the very near future.

The “State”
Opinion Posted by jewishindy on Wednesday, October 02 @ 09:44:47 EDT
(13496 reads)

If you are concerned about the transformation of America into a “nanny state,” this article will appear most timely.

Modern Israel is referred to as a “state” as well as a “democracy”; and of course public life in this so-called democratic state is dominated by “politics.”  But to practice “politics” in Israel, or to conceive of Israel as a “state” or as a “democracy,” is to enter a world of thought, action, and passion utterly foreign to the Torah and out of place in the Holy Land.  Let us only consider the concept of the “state.”

Alfred North Whitehead, the great gentile philosopher and mathematician, wisely discerned that, “The Jews are the first example of [a people’s] refusal to worship the state.”  Perhaps the reason is this.  The state, like the city of Babel, manifests the self-glorification of man.  The state is wholly a human product, based on the autonomy of human will.  Hence there is no essential difference in proclaiming L’etat c’est moi and saying Vox populi, vox Dei. In both cases the laws of the state depend solely on the will of the sovereign, be it the One, the Few, or the Many. Obviously this idea of the state is fundamentally opposed to the Torah’s conception of Israel. 

Israel is supposed to be a non-sovereign state created by God to be the teacher of mankind.  This explains why Israel today, by using foreign concepts, often fails to act like a sovereign state.  Notice how Israel relies on Washington to mediate its conflicts with the PLO-Palestinian Authority.  This may not seem unreasonable, until we recall that Israel’s government invested the CIA and the American State Department with the power to supervise the Palestinian Authority’s compliance with the security arrangements of the Wye River

Something for Jews to Ponder
Opinion Posted by jewishindy on Tuesday, September 24 @ 09:07:59 EDT
(13315 reads)

It’s bad enough to deny God in Chicago; it’s infinitely worse to deny God in the Land of Israel from which the Jewish People were to relate God’s praise—His infinite power, wisdom, and graciousness. But this denial of God is what various prime ministers of Israel have been doing by consorting with evil, most conspicuously since a particular Labor leader concluded the Oslo covenant of death called the “Israel-PLO Agreement” in September 1993. That Agreement was fully consummated by a Likud leader who endorsed the creation of a PLO state in June 2009.

Both of these prime ministers desecrated the Name of God, and the people of Israel have done nothing to undo this degradation of the God Who gave them the Land of Israel from which the Jewish people were to relate God’s praise. Ponder, therefore, Isaiah 28:14-18: “…hear the word of the Lord, you scorners … in Jerusalem. Because you have said: we have made a covenant with death, and with the nether-world are we in agreement; When the scourge shall pass through, It shall not come unto us; for we have made lies our refuge … in falsehood have we hid ourselves …”

The degradation of Israel among the nations must therefore follow.

We may put this in another way. Lies have been the modus operandi of Israel’s Oslovian Prime ministers. Hence the people of Israel have been cursed by a non-people called the “Palestinians” whose culture is based on the primacy of falsehood.

Stop and Think
Opinion Posted by jewishindy on Monday, September 23 @ 19:23:02 EDT

Stop and think. That the Jews are alive despite the tortures of hell and the hatred of the nations is just not “natural.”  No people other than the Jews could have survived 2,000 years of torture, decimation, and holocaust. But nothing you learn in “higher education” or in the social sciences or in philosophy can explain this phenomenon. You know this, but what lessons can you derive from this “knowing”?

One lesson is enough: no secular politician can bring peace and security let alone dignity to the people of Israel. This would contradict 2,000 years of Jewish history along with the Torah.

Notice how Israel succeeds in high-tech and is a complete flop in politics. Can you imagine any non-Jewish country pursuing Israel’s policy of territory for peace year after year vis-à-vis Muslim barbarians? Of course not! Israel’s territorial policy is obviously the policy of fools, scoundrels, and madmen.   This should be obvious to any normal high school kid who lives in a heterogeneous neighborhood.

Go to New York and stroll through Harlem at night. Aren’t Blacks the primary victims of Blacks?

You gotta be out of your mind to think Jews are gonna get peace from Muslims. How much evidence do you need to get the message? So, if you’re not stupid, you must conclude that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is either an idiot or has lost part of his cerebellum.   And if you think you can explain this away by playing the “American pressure” card, that’s just an excuse for the deadly combination of cowardice and stupidity. And you're still miles away from a rational explanation of why Israel Lives.

Obama Forces Israel to Release Murderer of Holocaust Survivor
News Posted by jewishindy on Tuesday, August 13 @ 07:16:00 EDT

By Daniel Greenfield 
August 12, 2013

This is Isaac Rotenburg’s story.

Isaac was born in 1927 in Boolodva, Poland. He was one of seven children, born to Nathan, a tailor. The family was sent to the Sobibor death camp during the Holocaust.
He and his brother were selected to work in the camp. He had to tie together bundles of victims’ clothes. The rest of the family perished.

With the outbreak of the revolt at Sobibor, Isaac and his brother managed to escape from the camp, but they lost each other mayhem that broke out in the revolt.

Isaac joined the partisans in the woods and went on to travel with them, until captured by a Polish farmer who shackled him in chains in a horse stable. After several months of suffering abuse by the farmer and his family, he managed to escape and join the partisans again.

After the war, he joined the exodus to Israel. The ship was seized off the coast of the country by the British, and all the passengers were transferred to a detention camp in Cyprus.

Isaac reached the shores of Israel in April 1947. A year later he joined the army and fought in the War of Independence in the north, near Kibbutz Manara.

Isaac married Rebecca Diamant and had two children: Zipporah and Pinchas.

He worked as a plasterer and when he reached the age of retirement,  decided to continue working several hours a day to keep himself busy.

In 1994, on a Tuesday, Isaac was at work repairing the floor, his knees bent, when two Arab Muslims came in and struck his head with an axe.

And this is where Obama enters Isaac’s story.

Terror Victims Group: Court is Backing Terrorists

Almagor says decision to allow terrorists' release shows court has “erased the status of the victims.”

Almagor, an organization that represents victims of Arab terrorism, responded with sorrow to the High Court decision to reject its motion against the release of 26 terrorist murderers, as a “gesture” to the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Almagor chairman Meir Indor said, "We regret very much that the court, like the prime minister, did not even listen to the serious arguments regarding the government's crossing of red lines, including the fact that some of the terrorists being released committed their crimes after the Oslo accords were signed.

"The Supreme Court locked its gates today before the bereaved families and the Jewish terror victims – something it does not do when it comes to any Palestinians,” Indor added – noting, among other past decisions by the High Court, its willingness to force the state to change the route of the security fence, at the cost of hundreds of millions of dollars, because of complaints by Arabs.

High Court Rejects Motion to Block Terror Release

Terror victims’ group held on to hope until the last minute, but High Court said it would not prevent terrorists’ release.

The High Court rejected a motion by the Almagor group for victims of terrorism, to block the release of Arab terrorists from prison that is scheduled to take place Tuesday night.

"Our hearts are with the family members, whose pain is great," wrote the judges, headed by Supreme Court President Asher Grunis. "We are certain that the authorized elements made their decision with a heavy heart and took into account the families' pain and their opinion."

Before the decision, Attorney Naftali Wertzberger, who represents Almagor, said that he believes the release of the 26 terrorists, which the Israeli goverment has described as a “gesture” to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, could still be prevented.

The court had not yet issued a verdict in Almagor’s appeal against the release, which is unusual, he told IDF Radio (Galei Tzahal). “The very fact that the court has not yet issued a decision leaves room for hope,” he explained.

Based on the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, of righteous memory
Lubavitch of Indiana  


The Torah includes 613 mitzvot (divine commandments), ranging from the obvious ("Honor your father and your mother") to the esoteric ("Do not cook a kid in its mother's milk"), from the well-known ("Keep the Shabbat") to the obscure ("Do not muzzle an ox while it is threshing"). One of them -- prohibition #57 by Maimonides' count -- is Lo Tashchit, "Do not destroy," the prohibition to destroy or waste of any part of G-d's creation.

Interestingly, the commandment not to destroy appears in the Torah as part of the laws of war. When laying siege to a city, the Torah instructs, do not cut down fruit trees to build siege towers from which to attack the city. Use regular trees. This injunction becomes the basis for the law that forbids all forms of wanton destruction or waste: "One who breaks a utensil, tears clothes, demolishes a building, stops a spring or disposes of food in a ruinous manner, transgresses the prohibition of Lo Tashchit" (Mishneh Torah and Codes).

War is basically a destructive act. So is cutting down a tree. Yet when the Torah wishes to tell us that it is forbidden to destroy, it gives us a case in which war is a necessity, and cutting down a tree is a necessity -- and then tells us which trees not to cut down.

Elul 3, 5773 / Friday, August 09, 2013

Parshat Shoftim is the original Jewish “political science”.  All of the institutions of governance, including kings, priests and prophets are here in a unique blend of “checks and balances”.  The foundations of Rabbinic authority are included as well.  Regarding the appointment of the king, who is to serve as the embodiment of the nation, we find several crucial guidelines.  Fittingly, the verses regarding the appointment of the king immediately follow the warning to punctiliously listen to the Rabbis, as even the powerful King is not above HaShem's law.

The King must be from among your brothers, not a stranger.  He must not acquire many horses or return the people to Egypt.  Nor should he have many wives who may “remove his heart” nor should he amass great stores of silver and gold.  The king must possess two Sifrei Tora. One is kept in his treasure house and the other is constantly with him.  The goal is that he learns to fear the Lord his God, to observe all the words of the Tora and keep its statutes.  That his heart not become haughty above his brethren and that he not depart from the Mitzva to the right or left, so that he and his sons will have a long-lasting kingdom in the midst of Israel.[1]

The message for us today is loud and clear.  We should strive to elect governments led by people who are first and foremost from among your brothers, from the people, embodying their values and embracing their concerns.  We need leaders whose primary concern is looking after the well-being of Am Yisrael, not concern with managing their own personal silver and gold.  May we be blessed with genuinely God fearing leaders who understand that they have a holy mission to fulfill, for the good of all of our citizens.

Av 26, 5773 / Friday, August 02, 2013 

Behold I place before you today a blessing and a curse.  The blessing if you listen…and the curse if you don’t.[1]  Rav Leibele Eiger explains the nature of this “gift”, HaShem gives the blessings into our hand, like a father who loves his son and chooses expensive and good things to give him.[2]  We always read these verses just before Elul, the month of teshuva, and we need to look for helpful hints in this parsha to guide us on our quest.  

When we enter Eretz Yisrael we are graphically commanded to destroy all of the places of idolatry left by the Canaanites.[3]  Thus a significant part of the teshuva process involves the total denial of all those past “idolatries” that we have been subjugated to.  Thus the Piaseczner writes[4] regarding wavering about “two options”, whoever imagines that there are two options, and he stands between them, between good and evil, this is a spark of idolatry (God forbid), for he mixes a foreign element into the world.  This powerful statement reflects the Rebbe’s panentheism, his belief that everything in the world exists due to the Divine sparks within.  Therefore, to really give credence to an option other than total devotion to HaShem, is to empower idolatrous forces that otherwise could have no real existence.

Releasing Terrorists: Water or Fuel to the Fire of Terrorism?
Opinion Posted by jewishindy on Friday, August 02 @ 09:00:12 EDT
(3419 reads)

By Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger
Israel Hayom  
August 2, 2013

The Head of Israel's Security Services, Yoram Cohen, stated that 60% of released Palestinian terrorists revert to operational terrorism. Most of the 1,150 terrorists, released via the May 21, 1985 "Jibril Exchange” played a key role during the First Intifada (wave of terrorism).  Over 50% of the Palestinian terrorists, who were released between the 1993 Oslo Accord and the eruption of the Second Intifada, participated in that wave of Palestinian terrorism. 

Mahmoud Abbas' commitment to embrace – and not to condemn – terrorists shed light on his prime values,
which are consistent with his track record: A Holocaust denial PhD from Moscow's Patrice Lumumba University; enrollment in KGB courses; the coordination of PLO ties with ruthless Communist regimes in East Europe; the logistical coordination of the Olympic Games' "Munich Massacre:” collaboration with Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait; subversive and terrorist activities which led to his expulsion from Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon.

Mahmoud Abbas
commemorates Palestinian terrorists - who unlike freedom fighters systematically and deliberately assault civilians – by naming kindergartens, schools, summer camps, streets, squares, community centers and sport events for them.

Releasing Palestinian terrorists upgrades their social status in a society which has been subjected, since 1994, to hate-education and incitement, in Abbas-controlled schools, mosques and the media. The Palestinian (hate) education system – and not the Palestinian dialogue with Western policy makers and public opinion molders - has been the most authentic reflection of Abbas' worldview.  It constitutes the production-line of terrorists and suicide-bombers.

“Israeli Governments Have Betrayed the People”
Opinion Posted by jewishindy on Friday, August 02 @ 08:51:00 EDT

From “The Eidelberg Reports” Israel National Radio, October 22, 2007

By Prof. Paul Eidelberg, President
Israel-America Renaissance Institute (I-ARI)
Foundation for Constitutional Democracy
August 2, 2013

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has resumed negotiations with the Palestinian Authority (PA). The objective of these negotiations, which he estimates will take at least nine months, is the creation of a Palestinian Arab-Islamic State in the homeland of the Jewish People. Netanyahu announced his decision to create such a state at Bar-Ilan University on June 14, 2009. This monumental decision, which is of existential significance to the Jewish people, was taken without Knesset or public debate. Moreover, and contrary to a ruling of Israel’s notorious Left-wing Supreme Court (HC 34114/96)—a ruling which ignored the fact that the PA has been waging a terror war against Israel—Netanyahu’s decision constitutes a prima facie violation of Israel’s Penal Law governing treason. This law defines four kinds of acts as treason:

1.  Acts which "impair the sovereignty" of the State of Israel—section 97(a);

2.  Acts which "impair the integrity" of the State of Israel—section 97(b);

3.  Acts under section 99 which give assistance to an "enemy" in war against Israel, which the Law specifically states includes a terrorist organization;

4.  Acts in section 100 which evince an intention or resolve to commit one of the acts prohibited by sections 97 and 99.  

To reveal the sordid political background and ramifications of Netanyahu’s Palestinian state policy, I have decided to republish, with almost no editing, many of the “Eidelberg Reports” which were broadcast on Israel National Radio between 2004 and 2012. By reading these reports today, future policy makers and decision makers of Israel will see with greater clarity and precision, not only the flawed political character of Israeli Prime Ministers, but also how Israel’s flawed system of government has been betraying the Jewish people. The Reports will be published not in chronological order but in terms of their urgency vis-à-vis Netanyahu’s endorsement of a Palestinian which, according to a detailed 1967 assessment of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff—experts unaffected by the bias of President Obama—would constitute an existential threat to the Jewish people.

The Palestinian Authority flag flew in the Israeli Knesset on Wednesday as several senior PA representatives came to visit more than 30 Israeli ministers and MKs.

The visit was organized by the Knesset Lobby for the Promotion of a Solution to the Israeli-Arab Conflict, led by MK Hilik Bar, and by the OneVoice organization, a group that calls to end the “occupation” of Judea and Samaria and to create an Arab state in the area.

PA lawmaker Abdullah Abdullah told the MKs, “It’s moving to see our flags flying next to each other. That’s exactly how we need to be committed to negotiations… as two nations, equal to each other.”

“Our goal is to live as neighbors in two states west of the Jordan River,” he continued. “Neither of us is going to disappear from here, not to the desert or to the sea, so we need to work hard to end the conflict and end the occupation.”

Abdullah Abdullah invited MK Bar and the other Israeli representatives to visit the PA parliament in Ramallah. The invitation came from PA Chairman Abbas, he told them.

Palestinian Authority Arabs attacked Jewish hikers in the Binyamin region on Wednesday, as they were exploring near the Wadi Zarqa valley.

The group of hikers, who were walking near an area where there are springs, suddenly found themselves being hit by a hail of rocks being hurled by local PA Arab residents.

The Arabs then attempted to beat them, the hikers told security personnel to whom they reported the incident, but they managed to fend them off.

Security coordinators from the Binyamin Regional Council were dispatched to the area to investigate and search for the perpetrators. They found three of the Jewish hikers hiding from the attackers.

Av 18, 5773 / Thursday, July 25, 2013

And it will come to pass if you listen to these Mitzvot…Rashi teaches us that this refers to those Mitzvot that seem minor, that people take for granted.[1] The holy Hornsteipler Rebbe of Denver zt"l[2] elaborates on Rashi stating, sometimes the truly important things are what people take for granted and that which a person thinks is important is relatively insignificant.[3] This alone should be enough to get us thinking about our priorities in life, and yet there is more. The Rebbe also teaches that the word Eikev, usually translated as since or because, should be understood here in its more literal meaning, that of heels or footsteps. How so? Eikev hints at Ekvei Mashiach [the foot steps of the Messiah], for just as there is a general Messiah to redeem all of Israel, so too every individual has his own messiah to redeem himself.[4] This is a very significant point for our own Divine service as the Rebbe explains; most people think that there personal redemption will come when they have spiritual clarity and expanded consciousness, and they wait for this their entire lives and it never happens. Again we see that we often have our priorities confused. This is caused in part by the mistaken notion that it takes dramatic spiritual leaps to achieve self-redemption, that avodat HaShem is in some ways "all or nothing". This however is a fatal spiritual flaw. What should we be focusing on? The Rebbe explains; we must listen carefully to the subtle illuminations that HaShem sends us. These are like the footsteps of the Messiah, that is to say, only the footprints which are reflections of the approaching redemption. Salvation will come when we see these lights and join them together. This is the meaning of the verse Eikev Tishmaun – you must listen to the footsteps of the Messiah.

Genesis, the Declaration, and the End of American Exceptionalism [Revised]

Judaism teaches that a fundamental purpose of creation is to manifest the plenitude of God’s goodness to mankind. From this goodness is derived the purpose of the American Declaration of Independence, which teaches that all men have a God-given right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

Secular historians mute the fact that most often cited in America’s Founding Era was not the political philosopher Charles Montesquieu (with 8.3 percent of the quotes), nor the legal scholar William Blackstone (with 7.9 percent), and emphatically not the darling of liberal commentators John Locke (with only 2.9 percent). Happily, contrary to the Straussian preoccupation with le sage Locke, the single most-cited work was the Bible, with 34 percent of the quotes coming from the Scriptures.

No wonder: the Puritans founded Harvard University; Calvinists founded Yale; Presbyterians founded Princeton; Anglicans founded Columbia University. Indeed, the law codes of colonial America read as if taken from Leviticus. Rhetoric aside, America’s Founding Fathers were not mired in modernity. Thanks to the influence of Hebraist scholars such as the English polymath John Selden, the Founders used Talmudic ideas to render the socio-economic affairs of American life more rational and more prosperous.

This Hebraic influence on colonial America had the salutary effect of enhancing self-government and individual freedom on the one hand, while limiting the scope of government on the other. It is hardly an exaggeration to say that colonial American law-makers were “Torah-oriented Christians.”

50 years later…Obama is sworn in as president

By Xavier Lerma

July 22, 2013 

Last July 17th was the 95th anniversary of the murder of the Romanov family. July 12th was the 400th anniversary of the Romanov Dynasty. The western media proclaimed it on every front page and was the lead story on TV news. We saw Obama shed a tear as he stated how the royal family was his family and how we should all follow their example of strength, faith and courage under persecution. News anchors throughout the west spoke sorrowfully as they echoed Christ's words, "Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake. Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven." I am being facetious of course. The Red press would never mention what happened to the Romanovs and how successful Russia has grown especially in the light of the recent failures in the US.

For One Russia-Christ Victorious
  (Video 10:56) 

The Romanovs and other martyrs of the 20th century go quietly unnoticed overseas but not in Russia where their sufferings enkindled their nation's faith. Obama and his imps prefer to ignite racial warfare in their land so to cover up his wars and economic woes. How many white people have been murdered that have gone unreported? I am afraid the list of murdered innocent people will continue to grow. Where is the conservative Black voice? It is there but ignored. Allen West's conservative voice goes unheard by those in power. Alan Keyes, who ran for Senator of Illinois against Obama, is laughed at by most blacks who call themselves Christians. The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, pro life activist Dr. Alveda C. King, is asking why the race baiting. Also, how many more babies will be legally killed under Obama's reign of terror? Christianity is under siege in America and the world. Christians murdered in North Africa. Bishops held hostage in Syria. Christians held hostage in America. Solzhenitsyn once said, "The Soviet Union was the Russian people held hostage by the Communists". Now they are free of the "Beast" and its atheistic government.

Will the real Kissinger please stand up?  
From David Isaac
Arutz Sheva  
Av 14, 5773, 21/07/13 12:11 
It seems John Kerry’s imitation of Henry Kissinger has borne fruit. His sixth trip to jump start ‘peace talks’ in as many months has triggered the desired response, with Arabs and Israelis agreeing to restart negotiations.

Unfortunately, getting Israel to the negotiating table is just a first step in squeezing Israel back to the 1949 Armistice Lines. Doubly unfortunate is that trying to reduce Israel to those lines is a long State Department tradition.

Which makes it all the more disturbing that Israel’s government cheers on Kerry’s endeavors. On July 14, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas Ramadan greetings, saying “I hope that American Secretary of State John Kerry’s efforts have results.” Israel’s soon-to-be-replaced U.S. Ambassador Michael Oren, echoed this, saying Israel strongly supports Kerry’s efforts and, “’If [Abbas] decides to stay in the negotiations, he will find an Israeli government that’s very committed to a solution.”

Shmuel Katz once said presidents and secretaries of state come and go, “but the spirit of the makers of policy in the State Department has not changed. With increased subservience to Arab demands it has only become more intense, more urgent.” Kerry demonstrates he has zero intention of breaking from that mold. He wears Arabist designs like an old suit.

Notwithstanding American posturing as an “honest broker,” when it comes to Arab-Israeli negotiations it is two against one – America and the Arabs vs. Israel. Kissinger described diplomacy as the art of restraining power. In this case, it has always meant restraining Israel’s power.

Move over NSA, here comes the Obamacare Big Brother database

Would you trust thousands of low-level Federal bureaucrats and contractors with one-touch access to your private financial and medical information? Under Obamacare you won’t have any choice.

As the Obamacare train-wreck begins to gather steam, there is increasing concern in Congress over something called the Federal Data Services Hub. The Data Hub is a comprehensive database of personal information being established by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to implement the federally facilitated health insurance exchanges. The purpose of the Data Hub, according to a June 2013 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report, is to provide “electronic, near real-time access to federal data” and “access to state and third party data sources needed to verify consumer-eligibility information.” In these days of secret domestic surveillance by the intelligence community, rogue IRS officials and state tax agencies using private information for political purposes, and police electronically logging every license plate that passes by, the idea of the centralized Data Hub is making lawmakers and citizens nervous.

They certainly should be; the potential for abuse is enormous. The massive, centralized database will include comprehensive personal information such as income and financial data, family size, citizenship and immigration status, incarceration status, social security numbers, and private health information. It will compile dossiers based on information obtained from the IRS, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, the Veterans Administration, the Office of Personnel Management, the Social Security Administration, state Medicaid databases, and for some reason the Peace Corps. The Data Hub will provide web-based, one-stop shopping for prying into people’s personal affairs.

The End of American Exceptionalism
Opinion Posted by jewishindy on Sunday, July 21 @ 06:00:23 EDT

By Prof. Paul Eidelberg, President
Israel-America Renaissance Institute (I-ARI)
Foundation for Constitutional Democracy

Judaism teaches that a fundamental purpose of creation is to manifest the plenitude of God’s goodness to mankind. From this goodness is derived the purpose of the American Declaration of Independence, which teaches that all men have  a God-given right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

Muted by secular historians is  the fact that most often cited in America’s Founding Era was not the writings of the political philosopher Charles Montesquieu (with 8.3 percent of the quotes), nor the writings of the legal scholar William Blackstone (with 7.9 percent), and certainly not the writings of John Locke (with only 2.9 percent). No, the single most-cited work was the Bible, with 34 percent of the quotes coming from the Scriptures. 

No wonder: the Puritans founded Harvard University; Calvinists founded Yale; Presbyterians founded Princeton; Anglicans founded Columbia University. The law codes of colonial America read as if taken from Leviticus. Moreover, Talmudic ideas were applied to the political and economic affairs of American life.

This Hebraic influence on colonial America had the effect of limiting the scope of government on the one hand, while enhancing self-government and individual freedom on the other. It is hardly an exaggeration to regard colonial American law-makers as “Torah-oriented Christians.”

By Rav Zvi Leshem
Av 12, 5773 / Friday, July 19, 2013

My teacher Rav Shagar zt”l taught three years before his untimely death, in a session on mourning and comfort, the following definition of nechama, comfortcomfort is not healing, but rather making room for the wounds to appear, not as rage and depression that disrupt life, but the opposite, to deepen life and our belief in the good, and to refine our relationships.  We are all so afraid of death, the great taboo of mankind.  I once heard from Rav Shabbtai Rappaport shlit”a that tumat met is a chok, since it is engraved (chakuk) very deeply in the sub-conscious of all human beings, from the most “primitive” to the most “sophisticated”.  Rav Shagar teaches that it is exactly death that allows us to take life seriously, to live it fully.  Were it not for the fear of death we would have the luxury of going through life as though it were all a game.  In the face of death, life must by definition become more meaningful, more intense, and paradoxically more alive.

But in the face of death how can we embrace life?  Most of us have lost close friends over the years.  Many of us know people, even young people, who are very sick (may HaShem grant them salvation in the twinkling of an eye!).  Sometimes we actually feel surrounded by death.  Rav Shagar writes when one dies young there is something beyond pain; the feeling of injustice is very powerful.  How can we comfort in such cases?  You have to say to another only what you could say to yourself, if not, it is falsehood (even if you think it isn’t).  What is needed is to sweeten the judgments at their source.  That sounds easy, but what are we really to do?  Rav Shagar sums up, the question is, do we bring this back to life, to refine the relationships with those around us?  Even if we hadn’t reached that level of intimacy with the deceased when he was alive, this will allow us to continue the relationship with him. Only this enables us to reach the eternality of existence.

Experts: EU Yesha Policy Could Lead to 'Legal Morass'

Despite Israel's efforts to stop the process, the EU on Friday published its new official policy boycotting Jews and Israelis in Yesha

Despite Israel's efforts to stop the process, the European Union on Friday published its new official policy boycotting Jews and Israelis in areas of Israel liberated in the 1967 Six Day War, including Judea and Samaria and most of Jerusalem. Beginning next January, contracts and agreements between EU entities and businesses, individuals, and institutions from those areas will not be legally recognized by EU courts and forums.

In a statement, EU foreign affairs head Catherine Ashton said that despite Israel's protestations to the contrary, “in no way will this prejudge the outcome of peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. It has been the EU's long held position that it will recognize changes made to the borders once agreed by both parties" in talks on a two-state peace accord,” Ashton said, adding that the document "reiterates the long-held position that bilateral agreements with Israel do not cover the territory that came under Israel's administration in June 1967.”

Israeli experts said that the implications of the policy could have a major impact on how Israel does business with the EU. For example, Holocaust survivors who have accounts in banks in areas like Ramat Eshkol – considered “occupied” under the EU guidelines – may find that their reparation payments are held up, as Germany, an EU member, would refuse to transfer money to such banks. Israeli owners of property in Europe who love in Judea and Samaria could find themselves unable to collect rent from their properties, as European courts would not enforce those contracts. The policy, said the experts, could cause a “legal morass” that would tie up courts in Israel and the EU for years.

Dep. Min. Elkin: Time to Stop All Gestures to PA
Israel Posted by jewishindy on Friday, July 19 @ 08:38:29 EDT
(3261 reads)

  [Reuven KossoverThe solution for peace in this country, a solution that gives justice to "Palestinians" - many families of whom predate the Muslim occupation of Eretz Yisrael by centuries - is to kill off the terrorists in the PA and Gaza, and force the Jordanian monarch to either surrender his power - or leave - while installing a secular Israel-friendly Palestinian régime in what is now called Jordan. This is doable. The régime EAST of the Jordan can, with Israeli aid, build what Israelis used to call ma'abarót to house exiled refugees from Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and other parts of the world, allowing them to rebuild their lives in an independent country of their own. The Palestinian residents of Gaza, Judea and Samaria would be offered citizenship in the new Palestine, or citizenship in Israel. There could be broad levels of autonomy for them, and compensation for exiles to help them get going. However, Judea, Samaria and Gaza would be permanently absorbed into the State.
It is time to tell the imperialists from Europe and America and elsewhere to go to hell - and to be willing to use our military to back our words. Israeli leftists and other self-hating Jews are welcome to stay in exile and enjoy being beaten up by Jew-hating mobs there. They are not needed HERE. Palestinian terrorists who cannot abide living in peace with Jews in Israel can be executed. We do not have to suffer them to live.] 

De facto foreign minister hints EU projects with Palestinians are in danger because of EU sanctions.

Deputy Foreign Minister Ze'ev Elkin said in an interview broadcast Friday that it is time to halt all “gestures” toward the Palestinian Authority (PA), and added that Israel has “no reason to allow the Europeans to act vis-a-vis the Palestinians in all kinds of projects they are promoting.”

He was reacting to an EU directive to halt cooperation with Israeli projects in the Golan, Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem.

PM Denies Talks on Basis of 1949 Lines, But Not Freeze
Israel Posted by jewishindy on Thursday, July 18 @ 09:18:36 EDT
(3240 reads)

Binyamin Netanyahu's office denied that he accepted pre-'67 lines as the basis for talks with the PA. But what about the building freeze?

[Reuven KossoverI know that this news is over 4 hours old; but would anyone but a traitor - a Qvisling - pull this shit?]

[Barbara Ginsberg:  No country who wins and wins land that is rightfully theirs, concedes to the loser to give him land that he lost by starting a war in the hopes of annihilating that country.   In a normal country, a WINNER is a WINNER and a LOSER a LOSER. Unfortunately, Israel cannot understand this and will commit suicide to please the world and take all of his with them.

In a statement, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's office denied that Israel had agreed to accept the 1949 armistice lines as the basis for renewed negotiations with the Palestinian Authority. Israeli officials had been quoted in earlier press reports as confirming the claim made by a top PA official.

“The report is untrue,” said Netanyahu spokesman Mark Regev, who reportedly called the media organization originally responsible for the misinformation, which spread like wildfire.

According to the reports, PA chief Mahmoud Abbas met with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry Thursday in Jordan to discuss conditions for restarting the talks. Abbas agreed to talks with Israel, the PA official said, as the result of Netanyahu's capitulating partially to two key PA demands: the Prime Minister reportedly agreed to at least a partial building freeze in Judea and Samaria, and agreed to announce that freeze publicly, and also agreed to negotiations on the basis of the pre-1967 lines.

The implications of that acceptance entails an implicit Israeli agreement to surrender the vast majority of land liberated in the 1967 Six Day War, except for the lands needed for security purposes. In the past, the PA has demanded that Israel also give up on the idea of settlement blocs, and have demanded that cities such as Ariel be evacuated and surrendered as part of any final arrangement with Israel.

Arab mob smashes windshields of cars as frantic Jews make getaway. This is Jerusalem, 2013.

A video uploaded Wednesday shows a frenzied Arab mob targeting cars driven by Jews as they pass near Jerusalem's Damascus (Shechem) Gate.
The video was uploaded to the “Free Qudss” account on YouTube, and to a group by a similar name on Facebook.

The text at the start of the video reads: "Destroying the settlers cars and arrests", and claims to have been taken near Damascus Gate.

The account's operators and the videographers claim the events are from Tuesday evening, and that the identities of the attackers had been blurred out to protect them from being identified.
Scenes of mayhem like these are becoming increasingly frequent in Jerusalem and other parts of Israel.

The Obama administration has done absolutely nothing in  five years to stop the Iranian nuclear program.  In the spring of 2012 Obama flatly denied the urgent request of Centcom commander USMC General James Mattis to send a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier strike force into the Persian Gulf as a warning to Iranian mullahs. Now Obama is arming Egypt and their terrorist Muslim brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi with hi tech F-16 jets and Abram tanks which will only be used against Israel. We are working on public relations initiative that will end the Obama administration this year.

Who is Barack Hussein Obama, the man in the White House? Without a doubt, Obama is the most  un vetted, unaccomplished, unqualified person to ever to occupy the Oval Office in American history. Bill Clinton (in reference to Obama's inexperience) is reported to have told Ted Kennedy during the 2008 campaign, "A few years ago this guy (Obama) would have been carrying our bags." Aside from Obama being completely and totally unqualified to be the leader of the free world do we even know for sure that Obama mentally stable? Dr. Sam Vaknin the world's leading expert on narcissism and the author of "Malignant Self Love " has said that " Obama's language, posture and demeanor and the testimonies of his closest, dearest and nearest suggest that Obama is a narcissist or he may have Narcissistic Personality Disorder." Narcissists have a grandiose, inflated, messiah like self image and cannot stand to be criticized. Obama's Christ like view of himself is very clearly revealed in his Democratic nomination victory speech in St. Paul, Minnesota on June 3, 2008 in which he tells a worshipping audience, "This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal." Clearly, this is a delusional statement. At the end of Barack's Super Tuesday speech in Chicago on February 5, 2008 Obama makes another ludicrous and insane pronouncement telling his followers "We are the ones that we have been waiting for." This is narcissistic double speak; in translation what Obama is really saying is, "I am the one the world has been waiting for.

Illusive Middle East agreements – the Taqiyya concept
Opinion Posted by jewishindy on Sunday, July 14 @ 00:06:40 EDT
(3436 reads)

By Yoram Ettinger
July 13, 2013

The Quran-derived "Taqiyya” concept is a core cause of systematically-failed US peace initiatives in the Middle East; 1,400 years of intra-Muslim/Arab warfare and the lack of intra-Muslim/Arab comprehensive peace; the tenuous nature of intra-Muslim/Arab agreements; and the inherently shifty, unpredictable and violent intra-Muslim/Arab relations, as currently demonstrated on the chaotic, seismic Arab Street.

The "Taqiyya” concept constitutes Islam-sanctioned dissimulation, deception and concealment of inconvenient data, aimed at shielding Islam and "believers” from "infidels” and hostile Muslims.  It is a tactic utilized, by Muslims, during times of strategic inferiority, intended to achieve provisional accords, only to be abrogated once conditions are ripe for vanquishing adversity. 

For example, Iran's new President, Hassan Rouhani, who was hand-picked by Iran's Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, demonstrated his "Taqiyya” capabilities during his term as Iran's chief negotiator with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).  Rouhani perfected double-talk, misleading the "infidel” IAEA negotiators, thus providing Iran with extra time to acquire nuclear capabilities, while systematically violating commitments made to the IAEA.  In September, 2002, Rouhani stated, in his capacity as the Chairman of Iran's Supreme National Security Council: "When we sign international treaties, it means that we are not pursuing nuclear weapons.  We are not pursuing chemical weapons.  We are not pursuing biological weapons.  Iran is not interested in any of these.” Rouhani's "Taqiyya' talent earned him the image of a moderate in Western circles, in defiance of his track record: an early supporter of Khomeini; he represented Khomeini at the Supreme National Security Council; he served as National Security Advisor to Presidents Hashemi and Khatami; and he was one of the planners of the 1994 "AMIA terrorism” which was responsible for the murder of 85 civilians in Buenos Aires.
