Letter to the Nation

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

Dear Friends,

 I think we’ve hit the end of the line. Since Rabin was murdered our outdoor political activity has waned. I think it’s time for renewal, for rebirth. I think our Prime Minister is waiting for the people to rise up. He works best under pressure.

True, we did not succeed with Gush Katif, that was because expelling Jews was Sharon’s personal decision, (perhaps to save his own skin) and he was out to succeed…no matter what. However, the situation with Netanyahu today is different. He isn’t out to kill, to expel, or to drive us out of Israel. He is with us, but not entirely, mainly because he is not convinced that he has a substantial majority behind him and in front of him.

This reminds me of the days when Gush  Emunim started. How and where did it start? On Rechov Ben Maimon opposite then P.M.’s residence Golda Meir after the Yom Kippur war. The youngsters (Chanan Porat and Levinger z”l, their wives, children and friends in arms) set up tents opposite Golda’s house. They lived in the street, davened in the street, and every time Kissinger hit town to talk “disengagement”, (mind you disengagement not return of Sinai, only Egyptian troop disengagement), every time Henry showed up at Golda’s residence, Golda took him to the window and said “Look here Henry, see what’s going on outside my front door…How can I agree to disengage?”

At this point I think what Netanyahu needs is a show of the people behind him, underneath his window, in front of his house, a solid grassroots movement of the Wise Women and Men of Zion that must band together, like the “four mothers” of yesteryear, to bring about dramatic change.

Mind you, I am not against our PM. I am grateful Bibi is PM and not Herzog or Lapid or Livni G-d forbid, but he works best under pressure. He works best when he knows he will garner applause for his efforts, he works best when he knows his place in history is assured. Thus it is imperative that we begin to build up pressure so that every Arab village that harbored or harbors a homegrown terrorist, will be evacuated, destroyed,  and rebuilt and settled with Jews.

I am not 19, and not 91, but I’m old enough to know that we’ve got to push Bibi into facing the world, and declaring that we are here, all over Israel and the West Bank and the Bika etc. we are here to stay, and we declare sovereignty over lands where we live and work. Any unhappy Arabs are welcome to leave our country. Unhappy Jews in France, leave France, Unhappy Brits leave Britain, same as unhappy people anywhere in the world including Israelis, leave their countries of origin and look to other places to start anew.

Please send this mail on to whomever you wish, whoever can help to get this movement started.

Yeshuat Hashem k’heref ayin, Let’s help make that happen.

Erdogan Apologizes for Downing Russian Plane in Condolence Letter

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

On the same week Israel and Turkey have reached the beginning of a rapprochement, following a formal apology by Prime Minister Netanyahu a few years ago for the IDF’s killing of 10 Turkish Citizens who brutally attacked Israeli soldiers, now Turkish President Erdogan appears to have taken a page out of Bibi’s playbook: he sent a letter to Russian President Putin urging the restoration of “traditional friendly ties” between their two countries, and spelled out how sorry he was for downing a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 aircraft and killing its pilot.

Turkey’s prime minister Binali Yildirim said late Monday that “the content of the letter is very clear. We express our regret. We say that we are sharing the pain felt by those who lost loved ones. We say that we will pay compensation, if needed.”

Now, was that so difficult?

“I suppose our president will have a phone call with Putin today, tomorrow, maybe Wednesday, maybe Thursday,” Yildirim said.

After the downing of the Russian plane last November, the Kremlin ordered sanctions on food products, an end to visa-free travel and a ban on Russian tourists taking package holidays in Turkey. Natural gas deliveries were in jeopardy as well. Suddenly Turkey was facing a raging enemy where none had stood before.

For its part, Russia’s Foreign Ministry viewed the letter with the apologies as a step in a right direction to normalizing ties, Deputy Foreign Minister Alexei Meshkov told TASS on Tuesday.

On Monday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that Erdogan sent a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin saying he was sorry for shooting down the Su-24 jet and stressing “readiness to make every effort to restore traditionally friendly relations between Russia and Turkey.”

Then, on Tuesday, Peskov said Putin and Erdogan would speak on the phone on Wednesday—at Russia’s initiative. “Tomorrow at the initiative of the Russian side a telephone conversation will take place between President Putin and President Erdogan,” Peskov stressed. The conversation will be held at approximately the middle of the day, he added.

Erdogan said late Monday that more than 10,000 tons of supplies will sail to Gaza from Turkey before the Eid al-Fitr religious holiday in early July, prompting Hamas to thank Erdogan for his efforts to ease the blockade.

And all it cost to get this swirl of good will going was for Israel to pay $21 million to the folks who attacked its soldiers with knives, axes, metal rods and whatever else they had on hand. A small price to pay, presumably, in exchange for this much peace.

Corbyn Never Bothered to Answer Herzog’s Letter on Labour Anti-Semitism

Sunday, May 29th, 2016

Jeremy Corbyn never replied to a concerned letter about revelations of deep-seated anti-Semitism in the UK Labour party, sent a month ago by Israeli sister party chairman Isaac Herzog, The Guardian reported. Herzog sent his letter after MP Ken Livingstone had been suspended from the Labour party at the end of April for making highly controversial remarks about Hitler and Zionism. Appearing on the Vanessa Feltz Show on Radio London last month, Livingstone said: “When Hitler won his election in 1932, his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel.”

Herzog wrote to Corbyn that he was “appalled and outraged by the recent instances of anti-Semitism by senior Labour party officials in the United Kingdom.” Herzog added: “I would like to take this opportunity, in the week leading up to Holocaust Memorial Day in Israel, to invite you to bring a delegation from the British Labour Party to Israel’s national Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem. By doing this, perhaps we can ensure that the anti-Semitism expressed in recent days is not the example to set to British young generation, but rather one of tolerance and acceptance of all people, regardless of faith.”

Herzog also commented: “As someone whose father served in the British army and risked his life fighting against Hitler and the Nazis, the views expressed by Ken Livingstone, the former Mayor of London and member of Labour’s national executive, in which he claimed that Hitler ‘was supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews’ were particularly horrific, and unthinkable for a British politician and the 21st century.”

The Guardian cited an Israeli Labor party official who confirmed rumors in the London Jewish community that they had received no reply from Corbyn.

Wes Streeting, the Labour MP for Ilford North, told The Guardian, “It should be a matter of common courtesy to reply to a letter from the leader of one of our sister parties, particularly on an issue as important as tackling antisemitism. But this is fairly typical of the flat-footed and lackadaisical attitude that we’ve seen from the outset. It is simply unacceptable.”

Ian Austin, MP for Dudley North, said he was shocked that his party leader had not sent Herzog a reply.

Corbyn suspended Livingstone, a personal ally, over his comments, and established an independent investigation. He reassured his MPs last week that he was giving this issue a high priority.

A Soldier’s Mother: An Open Letter to King Adbullah II

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

In 1948, King Abdullah the First of Jordan, joined in a war to push the Jews into the sea after he and his fellow Arab leaders rejected the UN Partition plan that would have divided the remaining 1/3 of Palestine (2/3 of which had already been pilfered to form his government), into two states – an Arab one and a Jewish one. In the land grab that followed, Abdullah I took all of what is known as the West Bank to some, Judea and Samaria to others. He took the Old City of Jerusalem as well; the Jews gained land in the north, south, and kept Western Jerusalem, widely known as the New City.

For 19 years, Jews were denied any chance to visit the Old City, the Western Wall, the Mount of Olives. Over 40,000 headstones were vandalized, latrines built from the tombstones. In 1967, in a preemptive attempt to head off attacks by Syria and Egypt, Israel responded to the mobilization of Syrian and Egyptian troops, the closing of the Straights of Tiran, and the mounting and increasingly threatening rhetoric. As Israeli jets flew to cripple the Syrian and Egyptian air forces at the outbreak of what was to be called the Six Day War, Israel sent a very clear message to King Hussein, son of Abdullah I. Stay out of the war, Israel said. We will not attack you.

Hussein answered back that he would fight with his brothers, as he sent his forces on the attack. His motives were not nearly as noble as his words. In reality, he anticipated – incorrectly – victory for the Arabs and was afraid he would miss out on another land grab like the one that brought his father east Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Hussein’s forces were pushed back beyond the Jordan River. Lost was Judea, lost was Samaria and lost was the Old City…which was, once again, reunited with the newer parts of the city, which had been under Israeli control from the beginning. And then, in a landmark move of monumental stupidity, Israel’s Moshe Dayan handed over the keys (figuratively speaking) to the Temple Mount and the game was on.

The Western Wall was clearly returned to the Jews who could once again pray before the last remnant of a Temple that was destroyed 2,000 years earlier. The Temple Mount was given to the Muslims, who have spent the last 45 years attempting to return to the 19 years of Jordanian intolerance.

Slowly over the last few years, Jews have become more and more aware of the absurdity of our being denied the right to simply whisper a prayer at our holiest site. Would worlds really fall if a Jew were to close his eyes and ask God for peace, safety and health for his family? Apparently so.

Over this Passover holiday in Israel, hundreds of infidels Jews and Christians have visited the Temple Mount. Today, two young men lowered themselves to the ground of the Holy Temple Mount and as they attempted to…yes…pray…they were attacked, beaten, arrested. In response, the Jordanian government, under the leadership of King Abdullah II issued a demand that Jews be banned from the Temple Mount.

In the past, the Jordanian government demanded cameras be installed and then when Israel welcomed the suggestion, knowing what violence there is up there is mostly not started by the few Jewish visitors, Jordan announced that it has canceled the plan and no cameras would be installed.

As I contemplated the demand by Jordan, I wondered if perhaps the Israeli government would be willing to appoint me as the temporary spokesperson to respond. I know exactly what I’d say to Abdullah:

Dear Abdullah,

In response to your government’s threat that there would be consequences if Jews were not banned from the Temple Mount, please note that 45 years ago, when Jordan last threatened Israel…they lost the Temple Mount and all of Judea and Samaria. If the consequences involve an attempt to bring this holy site under your control, I have to say, bring it on…but this time, Abdullah, this time we don’t give it back. This time we won’t let another idiot like Moshe Dayan hand over the keys.

Bring it on….you want no Jews on the Temple Mount…try it…and quickly find that we have learned much since you last held our holiest site and we will not return to those days. It was ours long before your precious Mohammed ever lived; it will be ours long after you are dust.

Arabs pray on the Temple Mount because WE allow it, and in our utter stupidity, rather than insisting that we TOO have a right to pray, we catered too long to an unfair and impossible situation. The site is holy to Christians, Muslims and Jews. Either everyone is free to pray there, or no one is free.

No, you will not keep it from us entirely, not now. Not ever. Your threat shows that 68 years after the 1948 war, your nation still fails to understand the Jew. We will tolerate much to avoid what bloodshed we can but if you insist on attempting to take the Temple Mount from us…there will be war…because this time, we will insist that the Temple Mount be open to all religions – as we have kept it for the last 45 years, and as you refused to do for the 19 years it was in Jordan’s hands.

You kept us from the Temple Mount for 19 years…we’ll take full control if you dare to think the consequences to be paid will be ours. We will never forbid Muslims from praying there, but nothing says the WAKF has to be in charge; nothing says that Jews who go up to Har Habayit have to be beaten and abused and if your religion is insulted by seeing Jews pray, that is your problem, not ours.

If the problem is so insurmountable that the mere sight of Jews whispering in prayers sends Muslims into rioting, I suggest we initiate a rotation plan. There are three great religions. Each can be given the Temple Mount for 8 hours a day. Each can choose to share it with others. For the record, we will allow Christians up during our 8 hours and will seek permission in return such that Jews and Christians, tolerant and accepting of each other, will be allowed 16 hours per day. Muslims may have the Temple Mount, alone and unbothered for eight hours. What eight hours would you like?

Also, I recommend that each religion be given a specific number of days in which the Temple Mount will be closed to all other religions for a period of 24 hours. How many days would you like and which ones? I recommend 10 days, as we do in the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron.

Please note that you’ll need to remove your prayer rugs during the 16 hours that the Temple Mount is not in your control and on the full days as well. We can build three separate storage units (perhaps Keter would donate them, but if you prefer a Jordanian brand, that’s fine too). You can store your holy stuff in it and we’ll store our holy stuff as well. Not sure what the Christians have, so we’ll need to check with them as well.

Please note that you will also no longer be allowed freedom to build additional mosques up there unless we can build up there as well and I suppose we’ll have to let the Christians build up there too if they want. It might be a good idea to tell the teenagers that they can no longer play soccer up there as well, as access will now become fully equal and balanced for all. Domination of the Temple Mount has come to an end. Your people have occupied this historic and religious site for too long, abusing it by storing rocks and fireworks, endangering the infrastructure by illegal excavations.

You are correct; it is time to implement a true status quo based on equality; and there must be consequences for those who riot and refuse to accept the sanctity of the place.

Let us know when you want to begin implementing the 24 hour cycle – I suggest we do it quickly as Israelis would really love to have the Temple Mount to ourselves this coming Independence Day in a few weeks.

Sincerely,
Israel

A Soldier’s Mother: An Open Letter to Bernie Sanders

Monday, April 18th, 2016

Part 1 of a series…I have decided to write to each candidate because I have the right to express my opinion, my concerns, my fears. Because as America contemplates and prepares to go to the polls, my nation has a stake as well.

As in all things in life, a personal message is just that. It is about what is important to the person…and from the start, I will say that each person is different. Where you are in your life is likely different from where I am in mine. So if you have a different opinion, I celebrate the freedom we have to express it. This is my opinion, nothing more…and perhaps equally as important, nothing less.

The first open letter goes to Bernie Sanders – because if all was right with the world, he would be the man most able to understand my reality, my world. Ah, but he’s not and yet still I write to him first.

What should have been a celebration – a Jew running for President, is instead a great embarrassment and worse, a greater threat to Israel because though we recognize the lie and the manipulation in Bernie Sanders’ words, much of the world is fooled. No, this man is not a friend of Israel. He is, in reality, not just a Jew who lost family in the Holocaust, but, in truth, one who lost himself from his earliest years.

Dear Bernie,

How is it possible that a Jew could be running for president of the United States of America? What a wonderful place we have come to in history for that to even be possible. And yet…how is it possible, if you get the nomination, God forbid, I will do all in my power to convince others not to vote for you?

The answer is actually quite simple and explains what was so wrong with Barack Obama coming to office. If America is to learn anything from the travesty that was the eight years of Obama’s reign, it is that you must vote for a person not based on the person’s color, gender, or religion but based on what the individual has done and what he or she says will happen if the voters deliver victory his or her way.

What we have in this election is a woman who hopes that despite her poor record, women will vote for her because they think there is some inherent principle that women should vote for women, that Blacks must, by definition, believe that a Black man (or woman) is the best person for the job. That is as flawed as assuming that you will be good for the Jews because you are Jewish.

The fact is, a quick review of your life will show that you haven’t really adhered to much of the Jewish religion. Other than bagels on Sunday, the religion, the essence of our faith, seems to have eluded you. You can claim no real understanding of what Judaism is…or spirituality, for that matter. Commenting on this subject in 2016, you stated, “My spirituality is that we are all in this together and that when children go hungry, when veterans sleep out on the street, it impacts me.” That’s humanity, Bernie, not spirituality.

You seem to be very confused when it comes to the basics of Judaism, Israel, our laws and holidays. You work on Rosh Hashana and yet I’m sure you take January 1st off as New Year’s Day, don’t you, Bernie?

When someone asked you about what it means to believe in God, you said, “To me, it means that all of us are connected, all of life is connected, and that we are all tied together” Well, Bernie, that’s kumbaya, not God.

Sure, it sounds great when you tell the cameras proudly that you’re “proud to be Jewish” but you see Bernie…you need to be proud you are a Jew – a noun, Bernie, not an adjective. That’s what it is to be a Jew – it is not a description, it is the essence…and even this is probably beyond your ability to comprehend.

Bernie, Judaism is so much more but you’ve spent the last 20 plus years of your life married to a Roman Catholic woman so while you’re enamored with her religion, proudly speaking of how great a man you think the Pope is, you’ve simply gone about losing your own religion. You have no understanding of Israel, that’s for sure. And, for the good of Israel AND the United States, a president has to understand the strong ties that bind our lands.

Obama hasn’t…and the relationship has suffered but more than that. Both the US and Israel were able to survive Obama’s attempts to isolate Israel because ultimately, despite your being unwilling to accept it, Israel offers tremendous benefits to the United States. It is shameful and sad that I feel that I have to point out the fact that we are the ONLY democracy in the Middle East, that we are the only nation in the Middle East to consistently stand by the US and its interests, that we stood by you on September 11, when while throughout the Middle East, others celebrated…and finally, that for all the financial aid you give to Israel, you are more than compensated by the tremendous military intelligence we share with the US military and the strong support we show consistently while most of your allies are silent.

Bernie, I will tell you one more thing. We here in Israel are watching you. We will not let you get away with slandering the Jewish State. The fact that you were born a Jew does not entitle – even you – to do that. My son was there in the Gaza war; he and thousands of other Israelis worked around the clock to do two things – the first was to stop the missile fire coming from Gaza into Israeli cities. The second was to do all that was humanly possible to minimize casualties on the Palestinian side. They held fire when it was clear there were civilians nearby; they dropped leaflets warning civilians to get out of the way. They used precision weapons as far from what was being fired at us as humanly possible. And you…do you condemn Hamas for firing at hundreds of thousands of people? Do you praise Israel for the tremendous efforts we made to protect our own civilians while trying not to harm theirs?

No…none of that for good old, Bernie. You have to lie…worse, use Hamas to guide you. Ten thousand innocent civilians, Bernie? Is that the best you could come up with? More than five times the actual number! And then, days later, when hundreds of programs and articles and individuals call you on your “error”, what do you do? You admit that you were wrong…and then proceed to be wrong again. So, with your second “estimate,” you still overestimate by at least 25%…even the UN numbers show you are wrong. Why, Bernie?

Why would a man who proclaims that he is proud to be a Jew, slander the Jewish State?

Bernie, I’ll be honest with you. There isn’t a chance in hell that I’ll vote for you. What I will say, is that I will be watching you…me…and all Israelis. This isn’t the first time the huge chasm between Israel and the American Jewish community has centered around politics and political choice. It probably won’t be the last.

So, from Israel, I tell you, Bernie, that we will show more honor than you. Unlike you, we will be honest and we will watch. And just as you clearly feel no reason to show any special consideration to Israel just because you were born into the Jewish religion, let me assure you that just because you were born a Jew, that doesn’t mean we have to support you.

So the lines have been drawn, Bernie. Fact is, no one thinks you are going to win…there won’t be a Jewish president in the White House…at least not starting in January 2017. What there will be, however, is one man pushed to the wall to declare his true feelings, who proved that he is no friend of Israel. So, Bernie, perhaps something good has come of this election.

We in Israel have felt the “bern”…and now we send it right back at you. Israel will not support Bernie Sanders for president.

And, on a personal note, as it appears you have no Jewish children or grandchildren, I will say that your greatest failure won’t be the loss of this election; it will be the carelessness with which you abandoned the people of your father and mother.

An Open Letter to Simone Zimmerman

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Simone-

Normally, I wouldn’t care to write this. I would ignore you like I do the other members of the small, but rabid and vicious, young, self-hating, American Jewish community who pop up here and there to scream and yell and wear keffiyehs and write patronizing and ignorant articles and tweet nonsense that no one notices, but you are different. You have been thrust onto the national stage as a “director of Jewish outreach” for the Bernie Sanders campaign, and for anyone who knows what you stand for, that should read like a The Onion headline. Normally, I try and keep infighting in the Jewish community to a minimum, L-rd knows we see a lot of it. But you are a rotten apple, with the ability to ruin the whole bushel, and you must be called out. You will be known to large swaths of the American population as a “Jewish representative,” and that fact makes my stomach turn. What you are saying is not new, not innovative, nor progressive or cool. You are not a great Jew because you call other Jews “yids” or have bagel and schmears on Sundays. You are not open-minded because you went to Berkeley, a bastion of anti-Semitic hatred in the bleak and anti- Semitic UC system. You are somewhat more notable because of the extents to which you have gone to try and destroy Israel, I will give you that. You joined (and led!) blatantly anti-Israel groups, you wrote anti-Israel articles, heck! You even opposed university legislation trying to curb campus anti-Semitism! So when I say you are similar to other self-hating, liberal Americans of Jewish lineage, I don’t mean to demean your efforts- you are certainly at the forefront of this vile movement. You must be, or I don’t believe Mr. Sanders would have chosen you for your current position.

But this letter is going to focus on the Facebook message that is now making the rounds (I’ve inserted it below for whomever reads this and is unfamiliar) on the Internet- and I’ve included the uncensored version you posted first, not the sanitized version you edited once you realized that the original version might come across as, well, insane. Kudos, by the way, for not letting your political aspirations keep you from voicing your truth. Before you changed your truth to suit your political aspirations.


We can start with your beautiful summary of my several-times democratically elected Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Aside from being a war hero, a scholar, a head of state and someone you’ve never met in your life, you use the most nasty language to discuss the leader of an ally of the United States. The biggest ally in the Middle East, incidentally. It may have missed my attention, but would you please direct me to any similar posts calling out Bashar Assad, who is implementing genocide on the Syrian people? Did you write a similar rant about Khaled Mashaal, Mahmoud Abbas, Hassan Nasrallah, Ahmedenijad, Khameini- you know, leaders who are promising the death and destruction of your fellow Jews, both in Israel and abroad? I would love to see the tweets and Facebook posts you wrote railing against the incitement of Palestinian leadership that has caused innocents to be stabbed and run over and shot with abandon here in Israel these past 5 months. Oh, you haven’t? Only Bibi is singled out and told “f— you”? Nice.

You talk of Bibi’s fear mongering. Fair play, coming from some American Jew ensconced in Berkeley or NYC (where I’m from, actually!) Tell me, would you have the gall to say that to my face as I sat in my building’s bomb shelter, praying for my life, 4 days after I moved to Israel and made it my home. Would you say Bibi is a fear-monger to the thousands of children from Sderot, Ashkelon and Ashdod who live with PTSD at age 5 because they have lived under the wail of a siren from incoming rockets their whole lives? You know, ever since Israel gave away Gaza in hopes of peace, only to watch their greenhouses turned into rocket launchpads and tunnel-building sites for Hamas? Would you like to go to Sderot and tell those people that Bibi is an ultra-nationalist, blood-lusting, fear-monger who only wants war? I dare you.

Let’s move on to him “sanctioning the murder of over 2,000 people” in a “brutal military occupation.” I’m going to go out on a limb and say you probably are not a big fan of the IDF. You probably love “Breaking the Silence” and whatever anti-Israel former soldiers who decide to put the love of leftist American Jews, before loyalty to their families and country. I am nothing like you. I love the IDF, the most moral army in the world. Aside from the fact that many past and present members are family and friends of mine, I know who and what they are and I am so proud to have them to defend me. Let me tell you who they are. They are generally 18-21 years old men and women, who have been drafted and asked to give up a chunk of their young lives to protect their family and friends. They are essentially kids who realize that to live in a Jewish homeland, one needs to make sacrifices. Some of them will die. That is a tragedy. I mourn for each life lost like I would my own family member. And I know that if there was no Arab threat to Israel, none of them would ever be killed. They exist because we are under constant threat in Israel and have been since before 1967, before 1948 and before 1929. Either you are entirely ignorant of history, or you are willfully ignoring it. This isn’t about Gaza, or 2-states, or even our one state. It’s about our existence, in Israel, in America, on this earth. Yours and mine, actually, as we are both (inexplicably) part of the same Jewish people. I’m just not naive enough to think hugs, kisses and capitulation will change reality.

About the Iran deal. How dare you gamble with my country, my people and my life because you think Obama knows better than Bibi about what’s best for Israel. Let’s say you’re right (you’re not). Why is Bibi wrong for taking Iran at their word that they want to destroy Israel. It’s a matter of public record, in video and print. They want Israel off the map, they will have the tools to do it, an infusion of US cash and they are run by radical mullahs. Why shouldn’t Bibi do everything possible to protect his country? Why should you, some know-nothing leftist, sitting safely in hipster Brooklyn think you know anything more that a certifiable genius with mounds of intelligence in front of him? Who ARE You?

I will end with how you signed off. Unfortunately, you are a leftist American Jew who cares more about literally everything than Israel and your people. It is evident from everything I’ve read about you (considered me obsessed with you, but not in a good way). You speak for a loud, arrogant, willfully ignorant group of disillusioned young Jews who are regrettably growing in ranks.

You are so dangerous to American and world Jewry, you can’t even imagine. I do hope you see the error of your ways, as you call yourself “a thinking person “although I know you won’t. I see you rising in the self- hating ranks in your future career- I’m relatively certain there’s a lot of money and prestige in selling out Israel at every turn.

But please know that as loud and vocal as you will be in your life, calling for boycotts, giving anti-Semites ammunition against American Jews and shaming our nation; I will be here on the other side, defending Israel, our people and our right to exist, just as strongly and with the might of right on my side.

Two 12-Year-Olds Caught with Knives and Good-Bye Letter in Jerusalem’s Old City

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Police caught two armed 12-year-old Arab boys in the Old City of Jerusalem on Thursday, according to a TPS report.

The two were acting suspiciously, so Border Policemen stopped and searched them, discovering 3 knives hidden in their jackets, as well as a good-bye letter to one of their parents.

They were arrested and brought in for interrogation.

During the interrogation, the two admitted they planned to commit a terror attack – as if those knives and letter weren’t a dead giveaway.
