I post much more frequently and on a wider variety of topics on my other blogs, Shiloh Musings and me-ander. For instance, read a mother's perspective on sports, winning and losing.

And here's an observation on human nature:

A Leopard Can't Change His Spots, and An Arab Terrorist Will Remain One Even With A "State"

Yesterday when I was reading some old International Herald Tribunes, I came across this article about the abuse many Afghan women suffer from their husbands and in-laws even in New York City.  One line really explained it well:

“I can’t even remember how many times I got black eyes,” said Nadia, 22, who is so fearful that she asked that her last name not be published. “I didn’t know I could call the police.”

She had thought this kind of abuse was a part of the Afghan life she had left behind.

Honestly, why would anyone think that just by changing one's place of residence, their behavior, cultural norms would change, too?
But much more quietly, a culture of domestic violence — not only by husbands but also by husbands’ families — has followed Afghan immigrants to destinations like New York, where women’s advocates say they are now discovering just how widespread the problem is.

I kept thinking of all the misguided policies of western governments, political scientists, philosophers, the media and la la Leftists who insist that by calling a country a "democracy" and instituting a system of elections, human rights abuses and totalitarian policies will just disappear.  And even worse, why do they insist that Israel will be "secure" with a Pseudostinian aka Palestinian sic State in our Land.



Whenever I think of the fact that the United States is training their police/army to be, I can't help but thinking of the movie The Siege.

It doesn't matter what pretty words U.S. President Obama, former U.K. Prime Minister Blair, Israeli la la Leftists, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, international diplomats media etc say, because the Arabs don't deny that their aim is the destruction of the State of Israel, G-d forbid!

The two-state solution will lead to Israel's collapse, the Palestinian Ambassador to Lebanon said in an interview earlier this month.

"With the two-state solution, in my opinion, Israel will collapse, because if they get out of Jerusalem, what will become of all the talk about the Promised Land and the Chosen People?"

Abbas Zaki told Lebanon's ANB TV on May 7.

Calling these Arab terrorist leaders and supporters president, generals and parliamentarians won't change them one iota.

Just like the Afghan families in New York who physically and mentally abuse the women who marry in, as they remember as acceptable in Afghanistan, giving the Arab terrorists a state will only make it easier for them to terrorize us and worse, may G-d protect us.

May G-d grant wisdom to our leaders, so they will lead us in the right direction.


Shabbat Shalom u'Mevorach
May You Have a Peaceful and Blessed Sabbath
