Unpleasant Truths for Jews and Israelis

Original Title, written before this blog post ran away with itself:

Arab Gazan Human Shield Policy Worse Than Japanese Kamikaze Attacks


I wonder how seriously the world takes the Gazan Hamas Arab terrorist Human Shield policy.

In a logical, rational world it would be a very clear widely heeded call to good people all over that the Gazan Hamas Arab terrorists are the worst of the world's most immoral, uncaring and violent ever.

In a logical, rational world those Arab terrorists ruling Gaza would be the world's outcasts, the pariahs and Israel would be the darling of the good, moral and purportedly peace-loving international bodies.

But unfortunately we don't live in a logical, rational world. The real world is dominated by an undercurrent of Jew-hating antisemitism. Too bad that most Jews and Israelis are too good-hearted and naive to accept this unpleasant painful truth. Too many Jews and Israelis have substituted "international public opinion" for G-d Almighty, and they constantly strive to please the world instead of pleasing and placating G-d.

Next week begins the Jewish Month of Elul, the month before Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur. Our sages teach us that G-d is always ready to receive our תשובהTeshuva, Repentance. If we are truly sincere and show that we won't make the same mistakes, sin, again, then G-d will forgive us, because G-d loves us as a parent loves a child. Only G-d loves us this way, and only G-d can save us from our enemies.

Unfortunately, and tragically, Jewish and Israeli leaders along with ordinary Jews devote those energies which should be directed towards G-d to attempting to placate "the world."  The world won't save us. The world would be perfectly happy and satisfied to dedicate impressive memorial and museums to a history of an "extinct," G-d forbid, Jewish People.

If you think that Obama or the UN can really save or protect us, you're barking up the wrong tree, and you may not survive.

What I write is the truth, an unpleasant truth for too many.

May we obey the True G-d and ignore the world. And may our political leaders lead us in the right direction, G-d willing.
