IDC Herzliya Campus A Day on Campus

Twenty-Eight Years Later, it’s Finally 1984

The year 1984, by Gregorian reckoning, came and went, and Americans seemed to have dodged the Nineteen-Eighty-Four bullet. In 2012, the atmosphere has changed.

One Response to “Twenty-Eight Years Later, it’s Finally 1984”

  1. Liad Bar-el says:

    A good article J.E. Dyer. As you said, “We weren’t being interned for reeducation by a Ministry of Love.” Yes, I remember George Orwell’s rendition of antigovernment crowd control of sending a helicopter to spray the people with a drug so that everyone would want to only make love and not do hatful actions against the government. It seems that the governments of the world today with any of their failed public woes, economic and otherwise, are redirecting their public antigovernment hate as the fault of the Jews and they are thereby indoctrinating their children to believe the same. Much like Orwell's public education of hate from the Ministry of Truth.

    When you said, “At the very least, the Obama administration is misinterpreting what is going on.” The overwhelming evidence of what has been going on in the last three years show that Obama is not naive nor misinterpreting what is going on but rather the key organizer/supporter to allow this world of hate to develop. Just like Orwell’s 1984 Ministry’s daily publicized session of “Two Minutes Hate” from a Jew called Goldstein which educated the world to hate more; so, it seems Obama is setting up Netanyahu to be like Orwell’s Goldstein as the cause of the world’s problem; yet, it is Obama who is culprit.

    Obama was born into and raised in a Muslim Islamic family. President Obama bowed down to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, the main supporter of Islam; yet, he publicly embarrassed and snubbed Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu. During Obama’s first months in office, he supported the Muslim Brotherhood, who wants to destroy Israel, only to later tell the Egyptian president, Mubarak, who outlawed the MB, to “get out” of office. This was done all in the name of “democracy” so that the MB would take over Egypt, the main Muslim country in the Middle East. The same MB support was given in the name of democracy to take over Libya. The MB has given Jordan until October to bow to their ways and other countries are now in process of a MB take over all of who are surrounding Israel and threatening her with annihilation all of which Obama is doing next to nothing to stop. The world's largest Islamic body called on Obama to make insults against religions an international criminal offence. Obama thereby took all references to Islamic Jihad terror out of every governmental agency reference, publication and training materials; thus, eliminating all thoughts from the American government and their employees that Islam is America’s enemy. Just like Orwell’s Ministry of Truth with their “Thought Police” to find and punish “Thought Criminals” through their spoken words and actions which would show that their thoughts are a crime.

    As Orwell’s book 1984 stated from the “Ministry of Truth” and as Islam is teaching, “WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.”.

    All we can do now is to cast our vote for Mitt Romney and pray to HaShem for help.

Israel’s Temple Mount policy prefers to blames the Jews-not the attackers-for the crisis.

When Islam conquered the Holy Land, it made its capital in Ramle of all places, not in Jerusalem.

I joined the large crowd but this time it was more personal; my cousin Aryeh was one of the victims.

Terrorists aren’t driven by social, economic, or other grievances, rather by a fanatical worldview.

The phrase that the “Arabs are resorting to violence” is disgraceful and blames the victim.

Tuesday, Yom Shlishi, a doubly good day in the Torah, Esav’s hands tried to silence Yaakov’s voice.

Because of the disparate nature of the perpetrators, who are also relatively young, and given the lack of more traditional targets and the reverence Palestinians have for their homes, one now hears talk of Israel returning to a policy of destroying the houses of terrorists’ families.

In any event, the Constitution gives Congress what is popularly described as the “power of the purse” – that is, the power to raise revenues through taxation and to decide how the money should be sent.

It is difficult to write about such a holy person, for I fear I will not accurately portray his greatness…

There was much to learn from Judge Kramer and the examples he set remains a source of inspiration and a resource from which to learn. He was and remains a great role model.

It’s likely that some of the rebel factions, including US clients, have indeed made pacts with ISIS

Another nation – probably Iran, possibly Russia and/or Syria – is entering the fight in Iraq in a new and fully committed way.

There is now NO possible explanation for not evacuating at least non-essential personnel from the U.S. embassy and consulates in Iraq.

ISIS is executing, slowly but surely, a pincer move on Baghdad.

The ISIS guerrillas are a problem for Iran. It arose because of the Arab Spring and the Syrian civil war.
