A sample of the lyrics to "PUSH THE BUTTON":
The world is full of terror
Anyone who takes offence to Israel's song choice, and says it is not proper for the Eurovision contest, need only look at last year's entry that actually WON the contest. They were dressed like 'Decomposed Monsters who were part Klingon, part Viking. They donned metalic garb with sharp spikes, and had fingernails that looked like it could slice a person in half. They even brought on stage a killer axe. (see second photo below)
Their song entry contained these lyrics below:
This group was none other than Finland's own heavy metal band called LORDI.
Finland's 'song' won the Eurovison contest last year!
Our message to the millions of Europeans? It may be we Jews who are gonna get attacked, but not only us. It's not JUST the Jews, it's FIRST the Jews, and then YOU! First the Saturday People, and then the Sunday People.
And Europe better watch out, as their continent has earned the new name of EurAbia . Perhaps that is why there are objections to Israel's entry this year? Perhaps the Europeans are intimidated by this bold and blunt song? Perhaps they are afraid of getting the Mullahs angry? So if the powers that be in the Eurovision decide to nix Israel's song choice, it could be safe to say that (with last year's winner) it would prove them to be hypocritical, or holding double standards. Letting a violent death themed song with axes on stage win the contest, and then disqualifying Israel's song that says we want to live in the sun and not get bombed, is so typically 'European' when it comes to the Jews.

This post won't be long. ....Because a picture tells a thousand words.
Defense Minister Amir Peretz is unfit to serve as Israel's Defense Minister. After helping to botch up the '2nd Lebanon War', and seeing more than 150 soldiers and civilians killed, as well as having our northern cities devastated by missiles slamming into our homes, we now catch this latest blunder of his...
Feb. 2, 2007:
From AFP.com "Photographs splashed across the country's two major newspapers on Thursday, showed a rotund Peretz, lips set in concentration, face tilted to the light and eyes glued to binoculars... with their black lens caps still firmly on. ....A vast majority of Israelis want him to resign from the defence ministry on the grounds of chronic incompetence and military inexperience."
How long was he pretending to view these military operations? What did he pretend to see? How long can one fake it? With another war looming, and Iran threatening to destroy Israel, we need competent leaders. "Hello? Is Anybody There?"
Peretz, sitting next to the new IDF Chief of Staff, Gaby Ashkenazi, looks through binoculars with the lens cap on, while being shown Israeli defense exercises on the Golan Heights.
The BBC writes: "According to the photographer, Mr Peretz looked through the capped binoculars three times, nodding as Gen Ashkenazi explained what was in view."

On this week's Eyshet Chayil Show, we discussed the joyous month of Adar, with tips on increasing your happiness in the happiest month of the Jewish year.
I found a great timeline for Adar on Wikipedia, the ultra-prolific reference site. Check it out! Almost every day of Adar has an interesting event which took place during the month - very informative.
Just for added fun, I'm including a recipe for Hamantaschen from Chabad:
4 cups flour
Preheat oven to 350°.
Grease cookie sheets.
Place all ingredients in a large mixer bowl and beat together. You may add a drop more juice or flour, depending on consistency of dough. Roll dough into a ball. Divide into four parts.
Proceed to assemble and bake according to Hamantashen illustrated.
