The new school year and other obligations are keeping this mom busy, but I did get something interesting in my inbox and wanted to share it with you even though I don't have time to write a lengthier piece here to accompany these videos. I am NOT happy to hear and report these dismal predictions about the end of America, however, I think it is important to listen, examine it, and make some decisions.
America Able To Collapse By 2010, Or Even In As Little As Two Months
The End Of America

So many things to write about and so little time. Well, here's some things I've been saving up for you to watch, some funny, some definitely not. It's a lot to watch, so I won't bog down this blog post with too much text.
And here's a youtube video that has gone viral, a dog who won't take any treats from Obama.
And this piece was done by one of our listeners David E. about Obama's seemingly lack of respect for state sovereignty.
And look at this news item below...
(IsraelNN.com) US President Barak Obama blessed the Muslim world on Saturday to mark the beginning of the Muslim Ramadan festival.
In the special address he reiterrated his support for a "Palestinian state" and said it would allow Israel and Arabs to live in "peace and security". Obama also said that the Ramadan rituals "remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam's role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings."
Well, so much for 'advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings'. This video below came into my inbox tonight, poor girl!

Ever wonder what it's like to live the life of a religious Jewish woman? I interviewed Allison Jospehs today from 'Jew In The City' , a website that answers questions about Jewish lifestyles and explains why Jews do the things they do in religious observance.
From her website: Some have called her an Orthodox Carrie Bradshaw. Others say that she's the next Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis. Allison Josephs (a.k.a. Jew in the City) doesn't focus much on comparisons, she simply wants to re-brand Orthodox Jews and Judaism. Both have gotten a very negative reputation over the years due to isolated scandals that have made the headlines as well as movies, books, and TV shows that have repeated and reinforced misconceptions and stereotypes about religious Jewish people and their lifestyles. (The hole in the sheet, anyone?)
Allison's website, Jew In The City lets her answer your questions about intimacy, modesty, holiness, and the inner goings-on of a Jewish woman. Allison has also written, directed, and produced several videos for Aish.com and is a regular blogger on ModestlyYours.net. Her articles and blogs have appeared in The Washington Times, World Jewish Digest, Aish.com, and The Jewish Star. She is also the Torah study partner for Mayim Bialik, the actress who is famous for her 5 year run show called, 'Blossom". Bialik is finding her path towards observant Judaism as documented in this interview. Here's one of Allison's videos below with a guest appearance from Bialik. It's cute and it's educational and you can watch more from Allison's site.

It's Saturday night here. I just got back from a funeral. Walking to the grave to bury my friend's mother, we passed many graves that were prepared and waiting for future use. Looking at all these not yet occupied graves, I thought to myself, "Here is where it all ends.
(This is a photo of a grave off the internet. I of course did not take any pictures myself.)
This is what waits for us all. All we take with us is the mitzvoth and good deeds that we do in this world while we still have the gift of life.
You know, we were really prospering in Egypt when Yoseph (Joseph) was the Prime Minister and served the Pharoah. Joseph saved Egypt from starvation, and we came to live in Goshen and sank our heels in and started living great. Things were really good! Yet even with our glorious contributions to Egypt with a former Jewish PM saving the country from ruin, things turned sour. It ended up that the Jews were put into harsh slavery, saw the horrible murder of our Jewish male babies and were cast into a future of a living hell. No one thought it would happen. But the good life all went south, as slowly, we were lulled into slavery without even realizing it, and then it was too late. Pharaoh also closed the gates of Egypt on us and wouldn't let the Jews leave. Lesson learned? Apparently not.
Then there was the golden age in Spain, Jews were prosperous, well to do, had Jewish schools and synagogues all over, and some even worked for the King and Queen as their advisors and/or government officials. The Spanish / Iberian Jewish community remained the most important in the world especially with the decline of the Academies of Babylonia.
And now many Jews persuade themselves that nothing will happen to their good life in America, and that America is 'different'.
I watch trends. I watch the headlines and the news, and I read the Tanach and what it says will happen if we follow, or don't follow the Torah. I am also the daughter of a holocaust survivor, so I listen and am sensitive to the signs that I see. I remember my father telling me that when he was a boy, that Jabotinsky, who came to warn the Jews that Europe was on fire and that they should leave and make aliyah, was banned from synagogues for being an alarmist. No one wanted to listen, because no one wanted to leave their comfort zones. It's hard, I realize it, but folks, the world is now on fire again. it's not a blaze ...yet. But once it does become a blaze, it will be too late. Too late. Too late.

Shocking video, yup, those who said it couldn't happen again, well, it's happening again.
I received this in an email today even though this took place some months ago already.
But what I also gleaned from watching this video was the eerie similairy of the Nazis writing 'JUDE' (JEW) on store windows of Jewish owned stores so 'pure' Germans wouldn't shop there.
The French video above sure looks like the beginning of pre-holocaust Germany.
"...A while back I saw another video where such an action group ran out of the supermarket with all the products and smashed them all on the floor..police arrived and arrested them."
"if you're serious about the boycott you must include the following which was invented and manufactured in Israel, panthium chip of your computers, wireless chips that makes it possible to use cellphones, that are few chips that were made in Israel inside your cell phone. boycott those! water purification, let's get serious and do it RIGHT. Stop using computers &cell phone, so Israel will get the message WE WILL NOT USE THEIR PRODUCTS! Let's go all the way! Let's not be hypocrites about it!!"
"I feel sorry for these people with plenty of hate in their heart and no love in their soul... if they really love the palestinians as they claim they do - let them fight Hamas that is turturing it's own people and who has caused Gaza disaster...As you know Israel left Gaza in 2006 and what did they got - pure terror..."
And my favorite comment there was something akin to: "I'd boyoctt Palestinian products, the only thing is, there aren't any!"
Watch this video below:
So where now is the future of the Jewish People? It is not in Brooklyn, Boca Raton, Golders Green, or Melbourne. It is definitely not in Paris or Los Angeles. The future of the Jewish people is HERE, in ISRAEL. This is where our past is, this is where JEWISH Kings ruled and are burried, this is where our history is, and THIS is the land that G-d gave to us as our HOME. There is no future for the Jews in the Exile any longer. Soon, the economy will get much worse, not better. G-d wants us to come home, and he wants Mankind to turn to Him, not Materialism. And if the Jews don't come home on their own, now, while they still have a chance to come with dignity adn whatever blessings they have at this time -not in 5 years time or 'when the economy gets better', then they will either be vomited out, or suffer whatever accounting their host country will suffer (G-d forbid) and I am not happy to see people suffer.
My brothers and sisters, you are so precious! You have precious little darling children. Don't be a slave to your job and your financial portfolio. Come home and LIVE in Israel. What other signs do you need to read the meter of anti-semitism and to know it is time to leave Exile and come home? Are the news headlines not enough? Are the arrests of and anger at high profile Jews not enough? Is the financial collapse not enough? What other sign do you need?
Maybe you are waiting for a telegram from HaShem (G-d) saying,
"It's time to come home. --stop-- Go to www.NbN.org.il --stop-- Get a real estate agent to sell your house, then go to Israel and receive your check for whatever you get, in the mail. --stop-- This is your last warning before events may turn and make it almost impossible to get your kinderlach (children) and yourselves out before it is too late, and you join the fate of the nations, or worse."
Folks, open your eyes. The Exile has come to an end. The future of the Jewish People is in Israel. We are waiting for you. Maybe these haters in your friendly host country haven't reached your front door ...yet. But why wait? It's happening again!
