Jew-Hunting In Mumbai


Islamo-Nazis came to Mumbai, and besides attacking major hotels, centers of commerce, and tourist attractions, they went Jew-hunting.

Yes, in a city where Jews are as rare as the Dodo bird, Islamo-Nazis spent months gathering intelligence on where the Orthodox Jews of Mumbai gather and pray, and when the time came they struck at these Jews because they knew there would be no consequences.

They went Jew-hunting because the world has come to accept the murder of Jews as a legitimate political act.

They went Jew-hunting because Israel has displayed, over the past several years, a shameful degree of political and military stupidity.

They went Jew-hunting because the UN has signaled that Israel is a rogue state and the murder of Jews a heroic act.

They went Jew-hunting because the international left has aligned itself with the genocidal Palestinians to such an extent that every act of self-defense by the Jewish state is labeled a war crime.

They went Jew-hunting because they knew there would be no payback – ever.

But now that the shameful Olmert-Livni government is, at last, coming to an end, perhaps a new government will steer a fresh – actually an old – and necessary course.

Israel must take stock of its situation and come to understand, once again, that it is locked in a life and death struggle with international terrorism, of which the Palestinians are but a small cog.

If they kill one Jew, Israel must retaliate and kill a hundred terrorists. If a Jew is murdered by Islamo-Nazis, then every Islamo-Nazi on the planet must know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he or she is a big fat target.

No more fear of using disproportionate response. The definition of war is exactly that, and only a leaky mind demands a policy of national security based on abstract notions of being nice.

The problem for Israel is that its enemies count on the Jewish fear of the use of power. They also count on the Israeli left – surely the world’s most delusional group of people – to enable inaction in the face of proudly genocidal Arab intentions.

The Arabs do not fear or respect Jews or the Jewish state; they have contempt for Israel’s reluctant use of power. And they prove their contempt every single day as they gather useful idiots from Europe and, of course, from Israel, in their skillful propaganda machine that works to undermine the very legitimacy of the Jewish state. This is Jew-hatred disguised as mere “anti-Zionism.”

Think of it: No other state on the face of the earth is faced with such unrelenting hostility. Sudan and Rwanda, guilty of genocide, get a pass. Congo, locked in a barbaric civil war, has a death toll of 50,000 per month; no one cares. Liberia is a death machine so grotesque the mainstream media can’t even bring themselves to write about it.

For too long it has been open season on Jews. During his disastrous tenure, Ehud Olmert enshrined inaction and appeasement as official Israeli doctrine. He and his government allow rockets and missiles to rain on Israel while continuing to supply gas, power and food to Gaza – to the very regime hurling these missiles.

In short, the welfare of Gazans – the very people who voted for the Hamas regime – is, to the Olmert and Livni and their colleagues, of higher value than the welfare of the citizens of Israel.

The first and primary duty of government – any government – is national defense. All else is secondary.

Islamo-Nazis, in a country of hundreds of millions of Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs, sought out a handful of Jews, a minority of minorities, because they hate Jews, because they want Israel wiped off the face of the earth, and because they have absolutely no fear of retribution.

This calculus must change.

The long arm of Jewish vengeance must be felt in every corner of the world or no Jew will ever be safe.

The Maasai tribe, known for its bravery, lives by a simple code: “He who goes forward into battle may die. He who retreats will surely die.”

Israel must stop retreating.

Or the Jew-hunting will never end.

There is much I can write you about what is going here, but I am wondering what I should not write. I will start by imagining that I am you, sitting at home in the Los Angeles area and flipping back and forth between the weather, traffic reports, the Ukraine, Mexican illegals and Gaza. No […]

Death & Taxes

Welcome to Obamaland, where death and taxes is no longer an ironic statement, but a grim reality.

With the debate over gun control at fever pitch following the atrocity in Newtown, Connecticut, I thought readers of The Jewish Press would find the following account of my experience during the Los Angeles riots of 1992 both timely and interesting.

When Sarah Palin burst upon the national scene and the liberal media attempted to destroy her, I observed on my blog, Seraphic Secret, that she was being transformed into a hated Jew.

Each rhetorical bombardment against her was and is reminiscent of the Arab strategy to demonize Jews and Israel.

True genius is a rare commodity.

Five years ago, 26-year-old Moshe Hammer, z”l, a Lubavitch artist who frequently worked through the night, stepped outside for a walk in Los Angeles, to clear his head and recharge his creative batteries. As was his custom, Moshe rambled miles from his apartment in the Fairfax district.

There is no question in my mind that so-called anti-Zionism serves as a fig leaf for Jew-hatred.

There is no other explanation.

I know of no other country whose legitimacy is as relentlessly questioned and undermined as is Israel’s. You would think that those who espouse the love of human rights and rejection of violence and government oppression would attack, with proper fury, countries like Congo, Sudan, Jordan, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Cuba, Libya, Dubai, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Venezuela, and of course the most repressive country on the planet, North Korea.

Well, we just marked the anniversary of the 9/11 atrocities and who pops out of his Caliphite Cave?

Yup, Osama bin Laden.

Until 1967, Gaza was part of Egypt. The Arabs who lived in Gaza considered themselves – get this – Egyptians. The Muslim Brotherhood was active and quite popular in Gaza – and outlawed by the Egyptian government.
