I am posting a few different things pertaining to the war in Gaza. This blog post will be more of a mish-mash, but interesting things you should know none the less.
1) An email was caught by The Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF)
It seems that those nasty and angry anti-Jewish – oops, I mean, anti-Israel demonstrators are not content with stepping and burning the Israeli flag at their demonstrations and yelling to the Jews, "Go back to the ovens!". Now they are planning a new strategy:
Coming to a Synagogue Near You!
"No more demos. No more signs, chants, pithy t shirts. No more marches to nowhere.
And DEFINITELY no more emails to Congress, or heart-felt messages to Change.Gov and Obama, begging the conspirators to stop the conspiracy.
We each one of us is responsible - and we each one of us must take action. We cannot rely on Others to do it for us….
I have strongly suggested to many different so-called action groups, that we immediately institute a program of visits to every synagogue in the USA, on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings, and rise in each congregation and - in dignified firm and unemotional voices - repeat "STOP THE KILLING"– We need to go in groups of 3-4, to insure that we have 1 person as a defensive shield, and one as a video camera witness, recording everything….
The Jews of America must be confronted with their clear responsibility- far more than complicity-in the mass murders, occupation, and forced starvation of the people of Palestine."
(Thanks to Andrea for sending me this news piece from JIDF.)
My Jewish Brothers and sisters, did you think you could avoid getting the flak by hiding in your Monsey homes? Go now to: www.Nbn.org.il and fill out a form to come home. Get passports for everyone in your family NOW. Be ready to leave at a moment's notice. Things in America will not get better, they will get worse. It happened in Persia, it happened in Spain, it happened in Germany and it will happen in America. G-d has a plan, and the future of the Jewish people is NOT in Monsey, Boca Raton, London, Paris, or Melbourne. The future of the Jewish People is in Israel.

3) Though we here in Israel may be in a war and facing challenging times ahead, it will be nothing compared to what Jews will face outside of Israel where they have very few Jewish doctors and lawyers who own or even know how to use a gun and protect their family. Remember the riots in Crown Heights several years ago? The police didn't want to go in and stop the rioters. And Yanky Rosenbaum got murdered. It took more than two days for the cops to finally deem it 'calm enough' (after the pillaging and plunder and murder) to go in and make a police presence. In Israel, most homes have guns, and we know how to use them.
4) I am concerned that the prophesy telling about a 9 month occupation of Israel by a foreign entity may be coming true soon. (Gemara Yuma says: The wicked kingdom of Romi (USA) will extend on Israel for 9 months) The Gaza war is a perfect 'opening' to have our leaders tell us that we must invite in foreign troops (UN, NATO, etc? ) into the Israel Gaza areas to 'keep the peace'. Yah, like that really worked in southern Lebanon. We have had UN Peace keeping forces there since the end of the 2nd Lebanon war to keep the peace and make sure no more weapons would reach the Hezbollah. However, what happened was that the Hezbollah was able to totally restock their missiles and weapons and build up even more than what they had before the 2nd Lebanon war. – All under the nose of the UN Peace Keeping troops there.
Hello? We have our own army, the IDF, or has our government and the world forgotten? But nevermind, Bush wants his Road Map implemented and a Palestinian State to be established in the belly of Israel ASAP. Bringing in foreign troops will speed up the process. But will there be payback to the United States and the International Community for trying to wrest G-d's Land from the Jewish people? Read Ezekila Chapter 38 and decide for yourself.
