The Welfare State. I remember my mother telling me that for an assignment in her college class, she was supposed to go to the welfare office in Chicago and watch what happened there, and then to record it. What my mother saw astounded her. She would see 3 generations of family coming in to collect their welfare check. The (young-before her time) grandmother, the (too young to be a mother) mother, and her little kids tagging along who took their - what looked to be 'usual' places, sitting on the floor and playing games that they brought. These kids were tacitly being taught that their future too, would be the 'norm' where they would come with their mothers and collect their checks as well one day.
Watch this video clip from a Judge Judy show, it makes you shake your head and cry. This is who we created.

Couldn't pass this up! I want you to watch this short video clip.
If you were a parent, and you had a few children, and each child had his own talents, challenges and personality, would you not want them to get along and love each other anyway? Of course you would! This is what G-d wants from us. He wants His children to love each other. He wants them to love each other, work together, and compliment each other. Yes, they may be different, but they must still work on themselves to LOVE EACH OTHER.
We lost the Holy Temple because of sinat chinam (baseless hatred). And it is said, that every day that we do not have the Temple, it is because we are still committing this sin - no matter how justified we feel in 'hating' the other.
Tomorrow is the the holiday of Tu B'Shvat. It is the holiday of the new year for trees, the re-birth of life, the sign of the soon coming spring when one sees their nut and cherry trees all bare of leaves, but filled with budding flowers. Let us re-birth ourselves and start anew, loving our brothers who may be different. ---And all Mankind can learn from this. All of us, Jew and Gentile, Black and White, Tall and short, brown or blue eyed, are all brothers and sisters in that we all stem from Noah, and before that, from our mother and father, Adam & Eve.
Let's break the cycle of what we think is 'justified' hatred, and learn to respect and love each other. The word 'love' being used as a verb, not an adjective. The feelings come, after we do the hard work.
Like it or not, we are all one family. Watch this video. Happy Tu B'Shvat!

There may be a crisis of faith pertaining to the role of Torah in the government of the State of Israel, but I will leave that topic for those who are more far more knowledgable than I.
I want to talk about the crisis of faith in one’s family.
My father did not often communicate with his children on a one-to-one basis. His approach was to leave that task to our mother, and only get involved when punishment was called for. Regardless of current liberal views on parenting, I can only say that, thanks to our upbringing, I don’t have to worry about seeing my relatives on the latest episode of America’s Most Wanted tv show.
I recall, on one rare occasion, my father was in a slightly talkative mood, he told us something I’ve never forgotten. He said, “Always remember, in the end, all you have is family.”
What I see in the news from Israel is extremely sad and discouraging. The seculars ridicule the religious, the ultra-religious have no patience for the secular, the beach crowd marginalizes the ‘settlers’, the army is used as a political tool against their brothers, and the liberal press works to sensationalize and widen the division.
Recently I had the opportunity to view Tel Aviv from an unexpected vantage point. The picture posted with this article shows loops of razor wire, and through one of the loops one can just make out the skyline of Tel Aviv resting serenely on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
I ask the residents of Tel Aviv to wonder who it is that is looking down on their beautiful city. It is your family, your brothers and sisters. This last line of defense is where your brothers choose to live with their families in the most austere and difficult circumstances.
They are raising up a new generation of children that understands what it really takes to protect family, home, and land. They are found in disproportionately high rates in the IDF, especially in the combat units.
Have you been to Samaria, visited the lovely cities on the hills, and the ‘settlements’ just birthing, talked with the other half of your family? I hope some will take a few days off from the beauty of the beach, and go see the beauty of the sun setting on the Mediterranean from the hilltop homes of your brothers. Bring along some tools, a few boards, and help your brother build his house, or plant his garden.
Love of family, land, extends to the entire Jewish family, regardless of where they live.
“Always remember, in the end, all you have is family.”

When I first saw the title and blurb on this documentary, I scoffed, and said, "Oh no, not another conspiracy theory!" But then after watching this, I must say, it makes a lot of sense. If indeed we're talking about a multi-million dollar loss for a ruthless elite(s), and a British government that wants to stay in power, then it makes sense that they would have no problem with making a switch, and playing with people's lives - and belongings. Let's remember, in those days, most poor people who were coming to America never saw their family in Europe again. They would have taken all their most precious possessions, family sentiments, etc. with them on the ship. All of it would end up at the bottom of the sea, along with hoards of bodies, ....but millions of dollars is millions of dollars, ....and business is business, and politicians are easily bought.
If what this documentary alludes to is true, it is dastardly indeed!
Watch it, it will open your mind, and let you into a world you and I don't often get a peak into.

Guest Post by 'Dan, the Guy Who works with Leftists' who appears every sunday night on my show at 9:30pm Israel time.
Recently, the Israeli government has considered trying Judea and Samaria activists who report on the IDF's activity to residents of the settlements for espionage.
For example, if someone posted on a hilltop sends an SMS message to a resident of an outpost, "the bulldozers are on their way to your front door," he could be accused of spying.
In light of that report, we propose a new game show for Israeli TV, "Spy or Not a Spy."
Here is our host, Alex Quebec.
Alex: "Contestant #1, please choose your category: so-called 'human rights' activists, over-the-top knesset members, or sob-story journalists.
Contestant #1: I'll put 10 points on so-called human rights activists.
Alex: Your question is about Jessica Montell, director of B'Tzelem, who, according to Caroline Glick, colluded with the infamous UN Goldstone commission,which investigated the IDF's operation Cast Lead against the terrorists in Gaza.
Jessical Montell, spy or not a spy ?"
Contestant #1 answers: Let me guess, ah ah ah ..., a spy ?
Alex: I'm sorry, that is not correct, Jessical Montell has never been accused of espionage by the State Attorney's office.
Alex: "Contestant #2, come on down. What category do you choose ?"
Contestant #2, I choose so-called 'human rights' activists for 20 points.
Alex: your question is about Yariv Openheimer of Peace Now, which according to its own site, has a 'settlement watch' team which compiles reports on settlement activity.
These reports are used by the US State Dept. and the EU to follow settlement construction.
Is Yariv Oppenheimer a spy or not a spy ?"
Contestant #2 answers: "I say a spy."
Alex: I'm sorry, that is not correct, Yariv Oppenheimer has never been indicted for espionage.
Alex: "Contestant #3 come on down. What category do you choose ?"
Contestant #3, I choose over-the-top knesset members for 15 points.
Alex: "Your question is about knesset member Hanin Zouabi who was aboard the Mavi Marmara ship, part of the flotilla headed for Gaza,
in which IDF soldiers who boarded the ship were brutally attacked by militants on the ship, almost killing them.
Hanin Zouabi, spy or not a spy."
Contestant #3: I guess she's a spy.
Alex: I'm sorry, that is not correct. Israel's Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein decided not to prosecute MK Zouabi.
