      What Do You Think About This?

      by Tamar Yonah

      What Do You Think About This?

      On the one hand...  the UNITY of the people was awesome.  There is something special, even mystically powerful when people join together.
      On the other hand....  Should someone do this to someone?

      The Two State Solution is the Final Solution!

      by Tamar Yonah

      A lot of people are enamored over Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech that he gave in Congress.  While he spoke well and got perhaps over 30 standing ovations, there are some very troubling matters to take note of.

      In his speech, PM Netanyahu goes on to state: 

      "I am willing to make painful compromises to achieve this historic peace.  As the leader of Israel, it's my responsibility to lead my people to peace.  ...I recognize, that in a genuine peace, we will be required to give up parts of the ancestral Jewish Homeland.  ...In Judea & Samaria, the Jewish People are not foreign occupiers. We are not the British in India, we are not the Belgians in the Congo.  This is the land of our forefathers, the Land of Israel...   ....No distortion of history  ....can deny the 4,000 year old bond between the Jewish people and the Jewish Land."

      He also stated earlier, that we "will not return to the indefensible borders of 1967". 

      So IF he states that Judea & Samaria are our ancestral homeland, then why does he agree to give it up for a promise of peace?

      In addition, no one talks about the fact that he is he going against his own party, the Likud's platform which the people of Israel voted into the government.  No where does the Likud party platform state it that it supports the Two State Solution.  In fact, the Likud party's platform states the opposite when it comes to (Judea & Samaria) settlements.  It states as follows: 


      The Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza are the realization of Zionist values. Settlement of the land is a clear expression of the unassailable right of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel and constitutes an important asset in the defense of the vital interests of the State of Israel. The Likud will continue to strengthen and develop these communities and will prevent their uprooting.


      This video below is old, but that is why it is a GEM.  Why?  Because this was put out by the Israeli government's IDF spokesman's unit itself, showing why keeping Judea & Samaria, as well as the Golan, was essential to Israel's survival.  The first minute is scratchy, but stick with it, you won't be sorry.

      Our great prophet, Isaiah, said exactly how we will have peace in chapter 32 verse 17 where he states:  "The product of righteousness shall bring peace; and the effect of righteousness, quiet and security forever." 

      Giving away our G-d given ancestral inheritance to murderers will not bring peace. 

      Isaiah teaches us that peace is not a goal, it's an outcome, a state of being when living life properly.  Just like one cannot obtain happiness by chasing after an illusion of happiness, one cannot obtain peace by chasing after an illusion of peace.  Peace is a product, an outcome of the right way of living.  The nations of the world should not be demanding the creation of a terrorist state, rather, they should be pursuing justice and punishing terrorists, not rewarding them.  Emboldening terrorists, strengthening them, and creating a base for them to flourish, will bring on more destruction.  We will never obtain peace that way.  Therefore, this Two State Solution is 'The Final Solution'.

      Independence Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry

      by Tamar Yonah

      Independence means never having to say you're sorry
      If we are really going to celebrate independence, then let's really do it.

      Independence means never having to ask another nation for permission to defend itself.

      Independence means never having to ask another country for arms and how we can use them.

      Independence means never having to ask another entity for permission to pray at our Holy sites.

      Independence means never having to ask another nation where Jews can and cannot live.

      Independence means never having to ask another people if we can build in our own country.

      Independence means never having to ask the U.N. to condemn terrorist attacks against us, because we would have already dealt out justice ourselves.

      Independence means never having to say you're sorry for civilian deaths of the enemy, in a war.

      Independence means never having to ask another entity for permission to exist.

      Palestine: A Monster State

      by Tamar Yonah

      So you want to give 'em a state? Welcome Dr. Frankenstein, you've created a monster!

      As the Jewish People celebrate 63 years of its re-established homeland, the world wants to give birth to a monster state, 'Palestine', that wishes to destroy us.  Now that the Fatah terrorists in suits and ties have made nice with their not-as-presentable-to-the-world Hamas brothers, let us take a look at both of their charters. We shall see how a birthing of these terror groups into statehood would look like, not just for Israel, but the world.

      The Hamas Charter contains the following statements:

      “In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate You are the best community that has been raised up for mankind.

      Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it
      obliterated others before it" (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).

      Fatah's Charter:

      Article (12) Complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political, military and cultural existence.  

      Article (13) Establishing an independent democratic state with complete sovereignty on all Palestinian lands, and Jerusalem is its capital city, and protecting the citizens' legal and equal rights without any racial or religious discrimination.  

      (Yah? Please tell that to the Arab Christian Community.   After rapes, discrimination, killings, and land confiscation, etc they have fled Bethlehem and anywhere else they can flee from under the Palestinian Authority)

      Article (17) Armed public revolution is the inevitable method to liberating Palestine.  

      Article (19) Armed struggle is a strategy and not a tactic, and the Palestinian Arab People's armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the Zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished and Palestine is completely liberated.  

      The Fatah/PLO, Hamas/Moslem Brotherhood, both supported Hitler who fought against the free world, and they supported Osama Bin Laden when he attacked America in Spet. 11, 2001.  They sang and danced in the streets and handed out sweets when innocent Americans were forced to make the horrifying decission to jump out of the windows of the Twin Towers, and smash themsleves to death, rather than be cooked alive under their desks.  And these Arabs were celebrating. 


      Please watch this video, and then you may comment below if you wish.  Whatever you do, pass it on to others.  Maybe someone will wake up.  Till then, "Hello Frankenstein monster." 


      Since this video was removed, I am adding another video (not as powerful as the first one above, sorry) for you to see.  Footage of what American Islamists think about America and its flag and its values.  Watch it and pass it on to others.  (Move video up to about 58 seconds adn start watching from there.)

      Too Many Syllables?

      by Tamar Yonah

      Want a Passport? Answer this: Were you circumcised at birth and was it a part of a religious ceremony? If so, who was there and why? Do you know what kind of pre- or post-natal care your mother received when she was pregnant and what the dates and times of those appointments with her doctors were?
      A few weeks ago, I read and discussed an article on the show about new requirements the U.S. State Department wants to make for certain Americans that want to apply for, or even renew, one's U.S. passport.  These changes, according to The Texas Tribune's article, "Feds Mull Circumcision Inquiries for Passports" are contained in a new proposal put out by the State Dept. that would be required for a passport applicant that "submits citizenship or identity evidence that is insufficient or of questionable authenticity."  


      This proposal is believed to help prevent illegal immigrants from obtaining an American passport.  However, any 'illegals' already crossed the border without a passport, and any wanting to leave America, for another country, should be welcomed, not prevented.

      In addition to this encumbering 'illegals', it could also prevent tens of thousands of honest American citizens from obtaining or even renewing their passports, if for instance, if they were delivered by midwife at home or were otherwise not born at a hospital. 

      Questions various articles about this topic pose: 
      "Were you circumcised at birth and was it a part of a religious ceremony? If so, who was there and why? Do you know what kind of pre- or post-natal care your mother received when she was pregnant and what the dates and times of those appointments with her doctors were? For as many as 74,000 U.S. citizens a year, supplying this information to the U.S. State Department could be the difference between getting or being rejected for a passport."   

      In addition,  journlist and travel book author Edward Hasbrouck writes in his piece on this subject,"The U.S. Department of State is proposing a new Biographical Questionnaire for some passport applicants: The proposed new Form DS-5513 asks for all addresses since birth; lifetime employment history including employers and supervisors names, addresses, and telephone numbers; personal details of all siblings; mothers address one year prior to your birth; any religious ceremony around the time of birth; and a variety of other information.  According to the proposed form, failure to provide the information requested may result in  the denial of your U.S. passport application. 

      Now I spoke about this on my show a few weeks ago, entitled, "Circumcised Aliyah" and how this could affect some Jewish American citizens from being able to make aliyah (when a Jew moves to Israel), but it seems this news item is out again making its rounds on the internet.  And this time reading about it, the thought went through my mind, "If American citizens will be required by the State Dept. to provide so much detailed and in some cases 'ancient' information just to get their passport renewed, how is that Barack Hussein Obama is living in the White House and holding the most powerful and sensitive position in America, and he doesn't even provide the American People a bona fide birth certificate, let alone the names of those who were present at his birth.  I don't know, maybe their names had too many syllables?


      *** I was just made aware moments after I posted this blog, that U.S. President Barack Husein Obama produced a long form birth certificate to the American public after a media blitz by Donald Trump asking about his mysterious background, not only about his birth certificate, but also because he hasn't released his college records to the public and hardly anyone remembers him from his youth.  Trump is reported as saying after he got news a birth certificate was produced, "We have to see is it (the birth certificate he put out) real, is it proper, what's on it. But I hope it checks out beautifully. I am really proud."
