Greetings from Shiloh as the Chanukah Holiday gets closer. Did you know that some of the battles between the Maccabees and the Greeks took place right near Shiloh? Yes, it's true. It's nothing new for our enemies to want our Land.
Next week will already be be Chanukah. And before the eight day holiday of Chanukah has ended, there will be Rosh Chodesh Tevet, the beginning of the Jewish Month of Tevet. I have my plans set, bli neder, G-d willing, I'll be celebrating at Tel Shiloh. For the past few years, I work my schedule around Women's Rosh Chodesh Prayers at Tel Shiloh.
"And as Ehud has said, it is hard to remember a time when the United States has given stronger support to Israel on its security. In fact, I am proud to say that no U.S. administration has done more in support of Israel's security than ours. None. Don't let anybody else tell you otherwise. It is a fact." from United States President Barack Hussein Obama, at the 71st Assembly of the Union for Reform Judaism
Well, here's another example to be added to the list, right under "the history of the Palestinian sic people."
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it..." Joseph Goebbels.
OK, Barry Obama, I'm willing to call your bluff! It's obvious that you have some new Jewish speech-writers on your staff, but a speech is just a speech. It's also obvious that you've been taking lessons in public speaking, since you sound much less wooden than you did previously. But, again, a speech is just a speech, and I know that you didn't write it; just like you didn't write any of your speeches. You're campaigning and you're fund-raising. You want Jewish support, so you've brought new people onto your staff to train/coach you in how to speak to Jews.
Here's the entire speech:
Whoever the new speech-writers are, they're good. But it's just words, and I don't trust them, because the truth is that Obama's uncompromising support for the Arab Pseudostinians aka Palestinians sic is the most dangerous thing for Israeli security. Those Arabs aren't shy about telling the truth.
Their single solitary aim is the destruction of the State of Israel and replacing it with an Arab terror state that will endanger world peace, and that includes the United States of America.
