Blame Bush For U.S. War Weariness

The Iraq war waged by President George W. Bush, in addition to all its other faults, including the deaths of over 4,000 Americans, was bad for the Jews and bad for Israel.

The Bush administration’s lies, which seemed to multiply the longer the war dragged on, together with the large number of dead and maimed American military personnel, created a mood of isolationism in the United States. This is why the vast majority of Americans opposed any military action by the Obama administration against Syria, even though Syria used chemical weapons against its own people.

In his book Years of Wrath, Days of Glory: Memoirs from the Irgun, the late Yitshaq Ben-Ami recalls Col. John Henry Patterson – commander of the Jewish Legion during the First World War who worked with Jabotinsky’s Revisionist Zionists – telling Ben-Ami and other Irgunists that because of the long exile, Jews had lost the ability to think politically. This was nowhere more apparent than in the strong support for the Iraq war voiced by American Jewish neoconservatives.

Farcical Peace Talks

Bolstered by an ever anti-Israel State Department and a naive John Kerry, the PA is able to circumvent all the requirements of the present “peace talks” – talks being championed by the usual collection of left-wing Israeli politicians, Palestinian Authority negotiators and U. S. moderators with a pro-Arab bent.

The current negotiations are a repeat of the Oslo Accords with potentially the same far-reaching consequences. Meanwhile, Tzipi Livni ignores the desires of the Israeli electorate by making concessions Benjamin Netanyahu himself does not approve.

Only after direct and open negotiations with easily monitored results can there be even a semblance of peace. As things stand now, the propaganda spewed by the PA and the constant demands for far reaching concessions from Israel make the “peace talks” a farce.

The annual  Chabad menorah lighting in Sydney has been called off this year because of the murders in the Lindt cafe.

The decision to not publicly light the Menorah in Sydney, epitomizes the eternal dilemma of Judaism and Jews in the Diaspora.

Am Yisrael is one family, filled with excruciating pain&sorrow for losing the 4 kedoshim of Har Nof

What is its message of the dreidel?” The complexity and hidden nature of history and miracles.

Police play down Arab terrorism as mere “violence” until the truth can no longer be hidden.

The 7 branches of the menorah represent the 7 pillars of secular wisdom, knowledge, and science.

Obama obtained NO verifiable commitments from Cuba it would desist from acts prejudicial to the US

No one would deny that the program subjected detainees to less than pleasant treatment, but the salient point is, for what purpose?

For the past six years President Obama has consistently deplored all Palestinian efforts to end-run negotiations in search of a UN-imposed agreement on Israel.

It’s not an admiration. It is simply a kind of journalist fascination. It stands out, it’s different from more traditional Orthodoxy.

For Am Yisrael, the sun’s movements are subservient to the purpose of our existence.

Israelis now know Arab terrorism isn’t caused by Israeli occupation but by ending Israeli occupation
