The Jewish National Goal
by Steven Shamrak.
Many Jewish groups, organizations and individuals are actively involved in signing petitions, writing letters and monitoring anti-Semitism worldwide. These are very important activities, but they all are missing direction.
Jews must unite behind the most important objective - the Jewish National goal: "Jewish people have the right to live in peace on all the Jewish ancestral land". Only by uniting behind the National Goal Jews will have the chance to survive the modern, internationally orchestrated, anti-Jewish onslaught!
This is the only goal that is worthwhile to pursue. It is the right of the Jewish people and must be pursued regardless of a political affiliation and external factors such as the Arab intentions to destroy Israel, and International anti-Semitism! It is the National right that Jewish people have dreamed about for 2000 years! Therefore, regardless of the political affiliation of any Jewish group, political party or individual, communist or capitalist; Orthodox, Secular or Atheist - all of them can support and be united behind this goal. And, it would not contradict their ideology.
It is imposable to achieve anything without setting an objective. We need to revive, re-ignite and be clear about the Jewish National Goal and aspirations. We can’t afford to waste time anymore. Our enemies declared their intention clearly, recently and in the past. Our ambiguity is just inflaming their hate!
Jewish national aspirations are not against Arabs or Muslims. It is about the identity and rights of Jewish people. The International community has done everything possible to deny Jewish people the achievement of our destiny. The time has come to take control of our own destiny!
The useless internal political bickering has to be stopped. The Jewish National Goal must be the main priority and motivation for all Israeli politicians, Jewish people and organizations around the world. The personal ego has to be put aside. This idea is the only one that can unite Jewish people.
History is full of examples of a great number of people who became idealistic and enthusiastic when they were lead to the achievement of seemingly, unattainable goals. They were unstoppable and pursued worthwhile goals with zeal.
Jews have this goal embedded in the Jewish soul. It would be more natural and easier for Jews to support the creation of the Jewish state on all Jewish lands. On the contrary, it is unnatural and self-destructive to impose on Israel the agenda of our enemies and the duplicity of their supporters!
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
The US governments have been using Israel to maintain stability or when they wish, create instability, using the aggression of Arab/Muslim neighbours, in the oil-rich region! If enemies of Israel knew that the US does not tolerate aggression against Israel and allowed the Jewish state to unrestrictedly defend itself, the conflict would have been over a long time ago!
Why is this Idiocy Again?
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has renewed his efforts to convince opposition leader MK Yitzhak Herzog, head of the Zionist Union party, to join his coalition. (Likud party used to be the true Zionist party. It would have majority in Knesset long time ago. To achieve it Netanyahu has to set and pursue the Jewish National/Zionist Goal. After all, this is Likud political platform!)
Jewish Hungarian-American business magnate George Soros, whose company files were hacked by the same outfit that in June hacked the DNC computers, was a major contributor to anti-Israel and anti-Zionist causes.
France Shut down Mosques – Why not Israel?
France has shut down at least 20 mosques and now has banned foreign funding of the Islamic houses of worship as well. (At the same time, the European Union criticized Israel for demolishing a European-Union-funded structure in Umm al-Khair in the Mount Hebron region. How ironic - No criticism of France!)
A Washington DC think tank has warned in a new report that American nuclear weapons stored at the Incirlik air base in South Eastern Turkey are at risk of being seized by the Ankara government. Turkish Authorities ordered the closing of 45 newspapers, 23 radio stations, 16 television channels and three news agencies this month.
After Russia bombs Syrian militants from an Iranian base for the first time, Russian giant Antonov An-124 air freighters are ready to take off Wednesday, Aug. 17, carrying an array of advanced S-400 and S-300 air defense missiles bound for the new Russian air base just completed at Noji, 50 km from the western Iranian town of Hamedan.
For the first time, the State Department has explicitly accused the Palestinian Authority (PA) of promoting anti-Semitism. Previously, US officials had labeled the PA denial of Jewish ties to Jerusalem as “material criticizing the Israeli occupation,” but stopped short of calling it anti-Semitism. Officials dropped an assertion made in previous years that the PA acted to “prevent preaching” of “sermons with intolerant or anti-Semitic messages.”
Quote of the Week:
“Diaspora Jews (and Israeli ones) should not support the misguided policies of Israeli leaders and that Israel should look to North America for moral guidance. Please do not tell me how you support Israel when you dismiss our biblical land – Judea and Samaria. This land was never occupied. This holy land was returned to Israel at the end of the 1967 war… Please tell me, how do you plan to make peace with Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah, the PA and ISIS?” - Rabbi Richard Jacobs - Most of the times, Israeli governments do not represent long term interests and goals of Jewish people, by engaging in perpetual negotiations with the enemies! It is only gives credibility to Arab terrorists and dimishes Israel’s political standing.
My Narrow-minded Attitude.
by Steven Shamrak.
I am sometimes criticised for covering only one subject in my editorial letters, namely the Middle East conflict in general, and the right of the Jews to live in peace on their ancestral land in particular. My critics are quite right! I can’t help it. I am passionate about the rights of my people.
I could write about colonialism and the effect it had on the lives of millions of Indians who were shipped throughout the British Empire as cheap slave labour, plus the adverse social and cultural impact it brought to the indigenous nations. The devastation of environment, due to colonial exploitation, would also make a big and interesting subject to explore.
I could write about the Church, its persecution of not only Jews, but millions of Christians who had stepped out of the official line or tried to be a good G-d-respecting human beings. Nobody wants to seriously and systematically contest the devastation and destruction to other cultures and religions brought by the Church to many nations around the world. Then there’s always the systematic child abuse by priests, monks and nuns, and the efficient cover-up by the Church’s official and legal system to write about. Cultural genocide of many nations and legalization of slavery was also done in the name of Christ and the superiority of the Church-led nations!
Political hypocrisy and stupidity could be another favourite subject of mine. A lot could be written about forging of the state of Panama by and for the economic benefit of the United States; creating political minefields by dividing Africa and the Middle East along colonial control lines, with no consideration for tribal interests and historical information; How about the betrayal of Tibet and Czechoslovakia! Most people don’t even know that the war in Vietnam could have easily been avoided if not for the arrogance and stupidity of the French and US governments. What about the occupation of West Papua by Indonesia; the Basque region by Spain and France; Northern Cyprus by Turkey; Western Sahara by Algiers, as well as the misfortune of the people of Kurdistan and Kashmir?
Yes, there are hundreds of issues I care about and could easily write about. I have chosen only one – Eretz-Israel, the land of Israel! Please, choose the one that you are truly passionate about. If all of us start to care, it will make the life of corrupt political systems intolerable, and the lazy and hypocritical journalists might start to do their jobs properly and honestly. And G-d forbid if in the process we are able to change the world into a better place!
