Postcards from Hell – The Face of Gaza’s Humanitarian Crisis

21 Tammuz 5772 – July 11, 2012
Let us take you on a tour of Gaza, and for the fun of it, we added to these fabulous images quotes from UNRWA and the PA about conditions there.

Will Obama Destroy Socialism?

21 Tammuz 5772 – July 10, 2012
Obama responded to an economic crisis by working to create two kinds of jobs. Government and union jobs. This was not about anything as simple as rewarding his supporters. The Black community got very little in exchange for supporting him. The Hispanic community similarly ended up with some token appointments, but not much to show for it. This was about shifting jobs from the private sector into the public sector and its feeders.

Mashiach Now!

Some people don’t realize that Mashiach’s coming is a process that evolves over time. These people want everything to be finished at the start. They say that when Mashiach comes and does all the work of rebuilding the Land of Israel, and gathers all of the exiled Jews to Israel, and fights the wars of Hashem, and rebuilds the Beit HaMikdash, then they will come on aliyah. First, everything has to be perfect. First, the Mashiach has to do all the work.

Unanswered Prayers

19 Tammuz 5772 – July 9, 2012
We Jews say that all prayers are answered - every single one. Just sometimes, the answer is "no."

Mazel Tov, Rabbi Tzvi Fishman!!

An amazing thing happened to me last night! While I was sleeping, an angel appeared in a dream and told me to start a new Jewish religion. “A new Jewish religion?” I asked, bewildered. “That’s right,” he replied. I was certain that I was hallucinating because I had fasted yesterday and that my mind was playing tricks. So I went back to sleep. But the angel appeared once again and told me to start a new Jewish religion.

A Man’s Man

The thing about S. was that he pushed his soldiers to find the best in themselves and he did it in a way that inspired them to want to reach down and find more. He inspired Shmulik with his dedication and his love of Israel. This is the land he defends and he treats his soldiers as his sons.

I Love All Jews

18 Tammuz 5772 – July 8, 2012
That’s right. I love Jews. All of them. I love good Jews and I love bad Jews. I love fat Jews and I love...

The Chareidi Gush Katif

Legislation is being used to force a situation onto a significantly large minority sector that disagrees with the decision. Will it once again end in disaster for everyone?

Married? Still Single? Divorced? This is for You!

16 Tammuz 5772 – July 6, 2012
Our Sages tell us that HaKodesh Baruch Hu, the Holy One Blessed Be He, weeps when a Jewish home is torn apart by of divorce. Unfortunately, He must be crying quite a lot these days, judging from the vast number of divorcees you discover on the pages of Facebook.

Why Don’t We Hear About Gaza Terrorists’ Routine Misfiring, Killing of their Own?

15 Tammuz 5772 – July 5, 2012
How often do Gaza's Palestinian Arab terrorists end up hitting their parents, children, spouses or neighbors? Do you see these self-inflicted losses reported in the news media that serve your community? Keep the question in mind the next time you hear of injuries or deaths in Gaza along with Israeli denials of involvement.

A Country of Free Men or Free Things?

There's a big difference between a free country and a country of free things. You can have one or the other, but not both. A free country isn’t obsessed with free riders; only a country of free things obsesses over making everyone pay their fair share to the people who want the free things. The rugged individualism of Colonial America has given way to stifling crowds, co-dependent on each other, clutching at each other’s wallets, crying, “Take from him and give to me.”
A celebration in Pushkar (actually, it was the Camel Fair of 2008, but there were no camels to be found in this colorful crowd).

Pushkar, New Mecca for Israelis, Even Has Chabad ‘Missionaries’

Calcutta News this morning reports on Pushkar, 130 km from the state capital of Jaipur, where many signboards and menus are in Hebrew.

Fly Me to the Moon

Surveys reveal that only about 15% of Diaspora Jews have visited Israel. To me, that’s simply shocking. How can it be that God gave us back our homeland and so many Jews don’t come? You can say it is hard to move to a country far away, but what’s the big deal about coming for a visit? It certainly isn’t because of the money. Snorkeling in the Caribbean, and enjoying a gondola ride along stinking, garbage-filled sewers of Venice, cost about the same.

Only in America

15 Tammuz 5772 – July 4, 2012
Credit goes to the American people too for taking Edon Pinchot into their hearts. Americans didn’t see a Kipa – even though it was very obviously upon his head. They saw a talented young boy singing his heart out. And they loved it.

Alex’s Blog Round-up

Today's blog round-up is from the younger set. Still meant to be read by people of all ages, these blogs talk about modesty, Twitter sayings and the power of the Jew-fro.

4th of July – Gut Yom Tov!

Yesterday, in what smacks of a Middle Age witch hunt and blood libel, I was ridiculed and attacked by two supposedly liberal Jewish bloggers. This is all the more interesting since their attack on me falls on the 4th of July, which for them is a cherished holy day, honoring the American principles of equality, pluralism, and freedom of speech, which obviously don’t apply to “idiot lunatic Zionists” like me who disagree with their leftist, anti-Torah opinions.

Turkey’s Intelligence…Oops…

My oldest son, Elie, spent today in the Reserves and will be in for a few weeks later this summer. It is what happens when they finish their service in the standing army – a yearly commitment to stay ready; to be prepared.

Arafat’s Ninth Life Was Clipped by Poison

Man, that really unpleasant looking man had the force of life in him. Remember how many times he almost died?

Lies We Can Believe In

13 Tammuz 5772 – July 3, 2012
The American chief executive has a great deal of power and a chief executive who dons imperial robes is a danger with few precedents. There have been conflicts between the branches, but even FDR made a pretense of bowing to some outside authority. Obama never has, with the exception of the King of Saudi Arabia.

The Cult of America

In my family alone, except for my brother, all of my cousins and second cousins married out of the faith – all of them. Finished. Kaput. The end of the line. After 5000 years of clinging to being Jewish, generation after generation, through times of harsh and often murderous oppression, the candle was snuffed out in the love boat of America.
