Modern Chanukah: US as the Greeks, the Jews as the Jews

In Judaism the majority isn't always right. There are inflexible absolutes. Democracy is not a Jewish value!

  1. Lord please bring them peace Father♥

  2. Have gentiles changed? It’s not just the US, and they are all as much Greeks still (even their religion) as we are Jews. We need to stop assimilating and stop mixing with poison. They need to leave us to peace, or just leave.

  3. John Newman says:

    Agree US today has similarities with ancient Greece or Rome.

  4. Ch Hoffman says:

    there's nothing like a faulty historical analogy to allow the writer to spew venom under the color of scholarship and opinion

  5. Vladimir Weissman says:

    I think the Prime Minister is right. It is time for Israel to take a hard look at advantages and disadvantages of US aid of any kind. It might hurt, but remaining at the mercy of whom ever a tiny majority of US citizens elect is no longer the one and only option. Multiple actions and inactions of the US Govt in the last few years have proven that they believe that Israel is just a nuisance. They more often than not side with those who want Israel off the map. Israel is no longer a brave and courageous adolescent. It is much bigger and stronger than just a few years back. Time to reduce dependence. Let the Israel electorate be the only decision maker.

  6. Beth Wright says:

    Very true.the US still follows much oh the Greek and Roman ways.Just look around you..

  7. I don't think to blame the US, it is to blame joker Netanyahu when he losr the opportunity to strike Iran in 2009-2010 after the fraudalen elections in Iran by listening and believing Ayatollah Obama, now joker Netanyahu was betrayed from Ayatollah Obama, joker Netanyahu, if he is honest has to resigne becouse it is to late to srtike Iran.

Sometimes collective action against the heinous acts of the majority is not enough. The world should not only support the blockade of Gaza; it must enforce the dismantling of Hamas.

Such an incredible miracle to have Israel, it’s crazy that every Jew isn’t clamoring to live here!

Unlike many Likud (including Yisrael Beitenu, Israel is Our Home, which ran with it as a unified party in the last elections) voters and most who voted for Naftali Bennett’s NRP aka Bayit Yehudi, Jewish Home Party, I’m not at all surprised that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has done what he swore he would never […]

My good friend Ruthie Blum and I don’t agree about the value of Bibi’s speech; she’s too optimistic.

Bibi speaks resolutely in forums like the UN but we don’t see that strength on the ground here.

Obama’s speech was the epitome of chutzpah and hypocrisy.

Last night I attended the big festive celebration of ten years of Menachem Begin Heritage Center and Museum. Security was tight, almost like at a foreign airport, because both Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Ruby Rivlin were to be there. And yes, they were and yes they spoke. Officially the evening was a tribute […]
