Independence means never having to apologize for hitting an anti-semitic, terror supporting, anarchist in the face with your gun.
Independence means never having to board a terrorist-supporting flotilla ship, where we arm our soldiers with paint guns, instead of meaning business.
Recently, I did a radio show with former Islamic terrorist Walid Shoebat where he discussed how the Islamic world was getting crazier and crazier by the day.
Camel urine for cures from baldness to cancer to personal hygiene products is going viral, sweeping across the Arab world with nary a 'bad' review posted anywhere to warn people that it is about as effective as snake oil sold from the back of a covered wagon by the latest medicine man scammer who has his 'plant' in the audience exclaim, "I can see, I can see! It's a miracle!!!" And why are there no camel urine cure 'reviews' anywhere on Arabic websites or blogs saying:
In Kuwait, insulting/cursing the Islamic prophet Mohammed, or his wives, can get you the death penalty. See news report, here where it states, "Kuwait’s parliament provisionally passed amendments to the Gulf state’s penal code stipulating the death penalty for those who curse the Islamic god, Islam’s Prophet or his wives, theAFP reported."
So if Mohammed gave his stamp of approval on camel urine, who is a follower of the Hadith to say anything to the contrary? And is it worth writing a negative review and possibly get the death penalty for it?
On the website Islam-Watch.org, one person commented, 'maybe allah's apostle believed, "Eat Sh*t". 30 billion flies cant be wrong.'
People don't like changing horses in the middle of the race. Will Obama therefore start a war with Iran to protect his seat in the Oval Office?
Though we don't know who will strike first, I think that most of us - at least here in Israel - know that there will be a war, and we may not have to wait that long to see how it will be played out.
(I can't remember where I picked up this information on the net, I'd like to credit.)
MEDRISH “YALKUT SHIMONI” (Yeshiya 60):
“Rabbi Yitzhak said: The year that Melech HaMoshiach will be revealed, all the kings of the nations of the world will provoke each other. The king of Persia [in modern times they changed the name of their country to “Iran”] will threaten the king of Arabia [today called “Saudi” Arabia] and because of this the king of Arabia will go to the king of Edom [USA] for advice.
Afterwards the king of Persia will destroy [most of] the world. The remaining nations will be hysterical and frantic and fall on their faces and will be seized as if by “birth pains”.
And the people of Israel will be frantic and hysterical and they will say, where will we come and go? Where will be come and go?
And Hashem will say to them: Do not fear my children, do not fear. All that I have done I did only for you. Why are you afraid? The time for your Redemption has come!
THE EXPLANATION OF THIS MEDRISH:
Rabbi Yitzhak said [about 2000 years ago!]:
The year that Melech HaMoshiach will be revealed [what is expected to happen in the world at the time when Melech HaMoshiach will be revealed], all the kings of the nations of the world will provoke1 each other [the threats of war among the nations will be heard in every corner of the world throughout the countries and between one another].
SUMMARY OF THE DEVELOPMENTS
[The numbers in parenthesis refer to further explanations found in the Hebrew version]
PHASE 1 (2) King of Persia [Leader of Iran] (4) will threaten (3) the King of Arabia [threats of war against the king of Saudi Arabia (which is the only Arab country which still has the name “Arabia”)]
PHASE 2 (5) The king of Arabia goes to Edom to get advice from them [The king of Saudi Arabia goes to the Western countries, which are led by America, to consult about how to act against the threat of war from Iran].
PHASE 3 “And King of Persia goes back (6) and destroys the whole world [it is clear that you cannot destroy the whole world with conventional weapons. It means to annihilate the world with nuclear weapons. ["and destroys the whole world"– the meaning isn’t actually the whole world, the meaning is "most of it is as all of it", meaning to destroy most of the countries of the world]”.
“And all the nations of the world will be frantic and hysterical and “falling on their faces” and will be as if seized by (7) something like birth pains [a terrible and horrified fear that was unknown until now will grasp all the remaining nations - lest they too will die in a nuclear war (because they will be unable to protect themselves from the nuclear explosion and the radioactivity that will be formed)].
And the people of Israel will be frantic and hysterical [because of the terrible fear that will be in the world that Iran (Persia) will also attack Israel]. And they will say, where will we come and go [since there will be no possibility to find help or support and there will be no natural way to be saved - and about this situation it is said "we have no one to rely on except our Father in Heaven"] and they will say: “Where will be come and go?” [The Medrish repeats this twice to emphasize the helplessness and fear that will be then].
And Hashem will say to them [HaKadosh Baruch Hu to the people of Israel]: do not fear my children [you have nothing to fear], all that I have done I did only for you [HaKadosh Baruch Hu calms Israel, that all the destruction of war was only for your good - to destroy the wicked Kingdom of Edom and to remove evil from this world and make it possible for the Melech HaMoshiach to be revealed and rule over the world] Why are you afraid? “The time for your Redemption has come!”
CAN WE SEE THIS HAPPENING NOW?
In order that one should not think these words of the Medrish are incompatible with the reality of our days, it is important to clarify what often appears in the media regarding the “King of Persia” (President of Iran) and about the "mahdi".
The current president of Iran since his election has declared several times in public, that the main purpose of his government is to promote the arrival of the "mahdi", and for this purpose all military and economical resources will be given. He also said in the UN Assembly (September 25, 2007) that very soon the powerful Western countries will fall and be destroyed.
According to his belief and the belief of the radical cult that he is part of, the way to bring "the mahdi" (the Shiite "messiah” who is supposedly, according to their distorted beliefs, going to impose the region of Islam on the whole world) is by creating a situation of chaos with local and international destruction. That is why the President of Iran says they must ignite a local war and then destroy the Western world (which in his opinion is the root of all evil) using nuclear bombs.
This threat isn’t just an ideology or idle talk. Recently there was an article in the press that Israeli Intelligence has concrete information that Iran has a secret nuclear reactor that it is producing there nuclear warheads for rockets.
As it is known today, the government of Iran is made up only from the people of this cult who believe in this "mahdi" ideology. Whoever doubts this is dismissed from the government (as was the commander of the Iranian revolutionary guards; he was removed from his position and replaced by someone loyal to the President of Iran ym"s)
Another interesting item that often appeared in the world press: astrologists see something amazing: very soon the Western world will be destroyed by Iran by nuclear weapons (this corresponds exactly with the words of the Medrish above). To differentiate, lately there have been a few Tzaddikim in our generation who also say that soon there will be a nuclear war outside of Israel and in Eretz Yisroel will be the “selection” that was foretold in the prophesy of Zecharia (13:8) and Isaiah 6 ("v'od ba assirya etc" –see Kesubos 112b) by an earthquake, terrifying in its power, unlike anything known in the past.
In view of all this, it is clear that the words of this Medrish: "and the King of Persia returns and destroys the whole world" are very realistic and in light of ongoing world events, it is quite possible that this will actually happen in the near future. --------
Obama's role in this will yet be seen - or not. But we can bet our horses on one thing... there will be a war, and Iran will be in it. And then it really will be too late to change horses or races.
How do anti-Semites say 'boycott' ? The answer? BDS
From their website:
Below is a 'Guest Post' by Leah Aharoni, owner of AQText Translation Services who just got boycotted.I Got Boycotted!
I run an Israeli translation agency, which serves clients from around the world. The other day, a UK translator responded to my inquiry for cooperation with a flat refusal, motivated by her “moral stance against atrocities committed by Israel against the Palestinian people.”
Forget about the dubious logic of stereotyping all 7 million Israelis as willing collaborators with government policies (reality check: Israel is a democracy with an extremely robust political debate). Apparently, this Brit has greater moral compunctions than the Arabic translators from places as far-flung as Gaza, Bethlehem, Egypt, and Jordan, with whom we cooperate on mutually profitable projects.
After the initial shock of coming face-to-face with this Jew-hatred and ignorance, I felt grateful and fortunate! Nothing helps us count our blessing like a little bump on the path.
Grateful to our clients the world over, who look beyond the media-projected image of Israel as a war zone, instead choosing to take advantage of Israel’s extremely diverse pool of highly educated native speakers of just about every language, with innovative minds and customer service mentality.
Fortunate to work with people, who focus on what we do, not the “neighborhood” we live in.
Grateful to our supporters and friends, who have showed intellectual honesty and moral fortitude by forming a rational opinion about my country, despite the prevalent social climate and libelous propaganda.
Fortunate to know that these friends will be by our side in the face of any BDS initiatives.
And to all the B(D)Sers out there I have only this to say – you don’t stand a chance!
It seems to me, that a normal human being, knowing what their offspring did to these victims, would be embarrassed. They would be ashamed, heart broken, apologetic that their own son, their own flesh and blood could have perpetrated such a horrific and horrendous act. I am not talking about a family in Gaza who sees no problem in strapping a bomb on their children and sending them out for the kill, I am talking about a family that lives in the West, in France, a place where they see and enjoy freedom, tolerance, prosperity, and modernity, that don't live under the Hamas, that didn't vote in a 'Hamas' government.
With parents like these who favor Algeria over France, with French citizens like these who support the terrorist and march for him in French streets , I say, deport the whole da-ned lot to Algeria. Let them all be buried there. Chutzpah!
