Purim - the Lesson of Jewish History!

Dear friends, I wish you and your loved ones a happy and joyful Purim - the time when we commemorate the survival of the Jewish nation!

Even now our over-cautious rabbis and politically correct ‘leaders' do not like to emphasize the practical aspects of Purim’s survival - when Jews were facing mortal danger, our ancestors united and decisively destroyed enemies of the Jewish people.

Jews often talk about the lessons of history like the Exodus from Egypt and the Holocaust. It is time to learn from these lessons and transform them into action! We must get rid of the slave mentality which is destroying our own country and eroding our national identity! We must unite and remove our present enemies from all Jewish land before they destroy us! Another physical or spiritual Holocaust of the Jewish people is not an option!

Israel’s Lost Sense of Mission

by Rabbi Krasnianski, 2003.

A person needs a sense of mission like the air he breathes. A clear sense of mission and purpose keeps the soul healthy. Nations are like people, with a healthy sense of mission they thrive; without it, they flounder and fade away.

The Jewish people have survived for 3,800 years only because they had a strong sense of mission. At Mt. Sinai the Jewish people were charged with the mission of being a light unto the nations, volunteering to become a nation of prophets and priests, who will teach the world right from wrong.

Even in their darkest moments Jews cried out, "Next Year in Jerusalem", never wavering in their commitment. They were proud of and deeply cherished their Jewish identity and having been chosen for a unique and special mission. They witnessed the rise and fall of many mighty empires that have been reduced to the footnotes of history, while they never left its front page. It was only the Jews’ sense of mission that kept their souls fresh, their minds vigorous and their families alive…

At its founding, however, Israel declared itself to be a Jewish liberal democracy. The inherent contradiction in its Declaration of Independence is tragically playing itself out in today´s headlines. Israel’s crack in its foundation has now become fully exposed. Israel has to decide once and for all whether it is a Jewish land, as the name ´Israel´, after the people of Israel, clearly indicates, or whether it is just another liberal democracy…

In England during World War II, Winston Churchill stiffened the English spine by inspiring his people and lifting their morale with his fighting words. The English knew why they were fighting. They had a clear sense of mission and purpose that enabled them to survive and defeat the Nazis…

Israel is the heart of the world and if the heart is unhealthy, the whole organism suffers. If the citizens of Israel are unsafe, then we are insecure here in New York. With each passing day, it’s becoming crystal clear that until Israel tells the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, it will continue to face a dead end and all of us will continue to suffer from the scourge of terrorism…

It’s time to tell the truth that there never were a Palestinian people and there never will be a Palestinian state. No one is doing the Arabs any favors by cruelly fueling false hopes that will only lead to frustration and greater disillusionment. The eternal people of Israel will continue to thrive in the whole of Eretz Yisroel and not even Jewish politicians, acting foolishly and humiliating themselves in public, could stop or slow down the fast moving train of Jewish destiny that’s hurtling towards the dawn of our Redemption.

If our ancestors were here today, would we be able to look them in the eye? What will we tell our children and grandchildren when they ask us why we gave away their inheritance and trust, without their consent? Will they ever forgive us? What will we tell them - that we had no choice? History will not be so kind or forgiving.

Maybe Now is Enough? Time to Move them all to Sinai!

Palestinian militants in Gaza fired more than 50 mortar shells into Israel on Saturday, the heaviest barrage in two years.

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

All over the world Jewish communities are predominantly involved in politically correct activities that do not lead to any real accomplishment. We must stop repeating our mistakes of the past and take charge of our destiny. It is not too late to become involved in meaningful acts of restoring self-respect, Jewish unity and unity of the Jewish land!

‘Poor Palestinins’ Getting ‘Aid’ to Destroy Israel

1. Egypt's army captured five vehicles smuggling weapons into the country from Sudan, and apparently heading to Gaza.

2. Israeli Navy commandos intercepted the German-owned A.S. Victoria on Tuesday, March 15 about 320 kilometers off Israel's Mediterranean coast on its way from the Turkish port of Mercin to Egypt. The Liberian-flagged vessel was carrying a large consignment of weapons bound for the Palestinian Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The Victoria  collected the weapons at the Syrian port of Latakia, where they had been offloaded by the two Iranian warships which transited the Suez Canal. (Predictably, the international media is mute about this raid of Israeli commandos and multi-national anti-Israel cooperation!)

Arab Dictators in Self-preservation Snub Obama

Saudi and United Arab Emirates troops crossed into Bahrain Monday, March 14 to support the king against escalating anti-throne demonstrations and Kuwaiti soldiers are on the way. A Saudi official said the units come from a special force within the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council. Rulers regarded as US Middle East allies have turned against President Obama, encouraged by the upper hand Qaddafi has gained against Libya's rebels. King Abdullah blames Obama's policy for unseating Hosni Mubarak in Egypt and has no intention of following the American line.

Tanks and Helicopters – No Demands for No-Fly Zone?

On March 16, the crackdown by Bahraini security was launched with tanks and helicopters to drive the mostly Shiite protesters out of Manama's main square and key points of the island-state while Saudi troops guarded strategic areas. (Why are ‘politically correct’ hypocrites ‘outraged’ only against Israel and competitors of Saudi Arabian oil interests, like Iran and Libya?)

Hypocrisy of the Headlines:

Jerusalem should be a neutral city, say European voters - guardian.co.uk – Why are European voters, who are brain washed by anti-Israel propaganda, are the ‘authority’ on the future of the capital of the Jewish state?

Stop Funding Unsupervised PA Schools

Israel will ask the West to stop funding the Palestinian educational system and Palestinian television until there is a significant supervisory body overseeing them. There has been constant brainwashing against Israel in general, and settlers in particular, in violation of the Oslo accord. “It’s no wonder a horrible murder like this (Itamar) is perpetrated when Israelis, particularly settlers, are depicted as subhuman,” said Yossi Kuperwasser, director-general of the Strategic Affairs Ministry.

Playing for the Enemy Side

Ehud Barak, Israeli defence minister, said that Israel faces a “diplomatic tsunami” that could erode its international support and bolster its enemies in the Middle East. He also criticized his coalition government partner, Benjamin Netanyahu, saying indecisiveness by the prime minister “was pushing Israel into a corner from which the old South Africa’s deterioration began.” (When will this leftist, self-hating idiot learn to keep his mouth shut? The only criticism of the current government indecisiveness is that it does nothing to promote the Jewish national agenda and keeps Barak as defence minister!)

Quote of the Week:

"I noticed that some of the states who rushed to the Security Council to condemn Israel, the Jewish State, for planning to build a home somewhere, are slow in issuing a harsh condemnation over the murder of Jewish babies." - Binyamin Netanyahu, Binyamin Netanyahu of Israel

Vocal in Support of Israel Only when They Need Jewish Help

During his official visit to Israel on March 13-14, President Christofias described Israel as one of Cyprus' "most important strategic partners." During his visit he discussed the possibility of transporting newly discovered natural gas from Israel to Cyprus and from thereon to Europe. The gas would come from the Leviathan field, some 80 miles off the Israeli coast, with estimated reserves of 16 trillion cubic feet. President Christofias also expressed his commitment to enhance relations between Israel and the European Union, under the rotating Presidency of Cyprus during the second half of 2012.

Jerusalem will Never be Divided

by Melanie Lidman

Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat insisted that Jerusalem is not up for negotiation in a future peace process. “In (the peace negotiations) there are a lot of pink lines, but I have one red line: It’s called Jerusalem, don’t negotiate with Jerusalem,” he said at the Great Synagogue in Jerusalem. (There should be just one red line – Eretz-Israel is not for sale! Only then will our enemies stop their attempts to deligitemise the Jewish state, and will Israel be able to reunify all her ancestral land!)

He called the terrorist attack which killed five Israelis in Itamar an example of the importance of sticking to certain “red lines” in negotiations. “This whole brutality reminds us the level of risks we need to take with our neighbours,” he said. “We cannot trust that this will not happen again.” (How many Jewish lives must be sacrificed to make Jewish voters and politicians in Israel realize that we are in perpetual war, which our enemies are not willing to end? Only decisive action and clearing of all Jewish land from Arab occupation will bring an end to this internationally sponsored travecty!)
