Din Rodef Means Death

The nation of Israel has been struggling for the past decades as to who or what it is. The original dream of Israel was to be a symbol in the Middle East of a democratic society in which people of all religions could live in peace and harmony. Somehow,along the road to this goal religious extremists entered the picture and obtained power. It was a Jewish terrorist who murdered Israel Prime Minister Rabin, and it is Jewish gun men who use their power to deny rights to Muslims and Christian farmers and workers.

Rabbi Shlomo Aviner made clear the other day that anyone who quarrels with the chief rabbinate of Jerusalem is subject to din rode.That means in English, the right of true believers to resort to force to kill him. The state of Israel has now reached a point in which there are citizens claiming the right of murder for those who oppose religious leaders. What ever happened to the dream?

Why Do Muslims Go Off On Jihad?

Most people in the West are confused as to why young, frequently educated men and women give up their life in the West and head off to do the jihad dance. So, why engage in such dangerous activities?

1. The main attraction for people in the West is –how much money can I make?The modern heroes are this with huge wealth. Sorry, this is not exactly what Jesus believed.How can any intelligent Christian take pride in the embrace of wealth as the emblem of success.

2. Young people are seeking heroes. Just examine the 17 seeking the Republican nomination, not a single one is a hero. The same applies to young Muslims, is there a single Imam who stands out as a leader of peace?

3. The West has been transformed into a playground for the wealthy. How can a young person feel a sense of pride when told those who lack money are inferior humans?

4. There is simply no version of modern Islam that attracts a high percent of Muslims. What exactly does modern Islam offer the young?

5. All too many young Muslims believe they are trapped in a world that glorifies “things” rather than human values.

Put it this way, most Muslim terrorists are simply an Arab version of Donald Trump–hot and cliches to solve problems!

Advice To Rand Paul

Rand, there were moments during the Debate when one wondered if you were auditioning for a role as the kid who nobody loves, but beneath the heart is one swell guy. If one is outclassed by the mouth that roars nonstop nonsense, then one is real serious trouble. So, here is some unsolicited advice.

1. Take a shot haircut and come across as a G.I. in search of action.

2. Sorry, Rand but people want to actually hear one single idea from your lips about how to handle terrorism.

3. Have you considered promising Americans that none of their sons will die. Now, as to their daughters…

4. OK, you don’t want an IRS. Just for curiosity, how about informing Americans how their mail is delivered?

5. OPPs, why not urge the end of the Post Office, and from now on, nothing but emails!

6. OK, no taxes, but what about those of us who have cancer? I get it, your Dad will handle all cancer patients,and will not charge a cent.

7. Have you considered free eye exams by the one and only DOCTOR Rand Paul??

Behead Your Drinking Buddy?

Every so often behavior by those seeking to behead infidels sort of gets confusing. Yasmin Salhi, a Muslim Frenchman decided to have a few drinks with his boss and then as sort of a dessert to chop off his head. He drove a truck,he hung around with some guys and came across as just another working stiff seeking to make a living. He was born in France, educated in France, but at this point in time decided that driving a truck loaded with explosives into chemical warehouse would really make his day a notable one.

The only sign of change in his life is the appearance of a beard. But, heck, walk along any street in America and there are bearded men. So,wha led to the change? Frankly, I do not have a clue. Is there something in the water in France that sets off ordinary people and transforms them into beheaders?

The Republican Platform For America

During the coming months Americans will be inundated with countless presentations from the horde of people seeking the Republican nomination for president. In an effort to simplify the enormity of materials we present a short version of what any and all Republicans will utter:

1. Taxation –lower for wealthy in order get the economy booming again.

2. Job creation, lower taxes on the wealthy.

3. Equal rights – we are for them but must ensure that ALL receive equal rights.

4. Racism– please get rid of that old idea,it no longer applies.

5. Police behavior –we support it.

6. Obamacare –we care not.

7. God–He is on our side.

8. Women rights– we believe in women, in fact, we even marry them.

9. Gay rights–religious folk also should have the right to be gay.

10. Benghazi– Just another name for Hillary Clinton

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

We offer observations on the human condition from a twenty four year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT

I wonder if there is a stage large enough to hold all those seeking the Republican nomination?

Rick and Rick are now in the race, just guess their last names.

I wonder if Republicans could just give a test on American history to see if anyone of these clowns could pass it.

So, whatever happened to Sarah? How come she is not running? Think of book sales!

I have a hunch that Republicans would be better to wander down to Skid Row and select one of the drunks.

I so long for John McCain, at least he could complete a sentence without insulting someone.

What would happen to this country i f a clown was president?

Bibi, It’s Not Barack!

Bibi Netanyahu will undoubtedly become the next prime minister of the state of Israel. Of course, he will become prime minister and completely lack any concern about one out of five citizens of this country because they are of the Muslim or Christian religion. He sunk to the lowest form of politics in his quest for power. Throughout the campaign he appealed to the forces of hate in Israel who simply do not regard anyone other than a Jew as a human being. I hate to make this analogy, but exactly what was different from the Nazi claim that Jews were a lower race than Netanyahu depicting Palestinians as lacking the qualities of human beings. He argued they were lower forms of people.

President Obama spoke the truth: “The United States and this administration are deeply concerned about the rhetoric that seeks to marginalize Arab Israel citizens” and undermines the democratic process. I am certain many American Jews support Netanyahu. The problem is that it is impossible to be a Jew and hate Arabs. I realize Bibi wants to wait out Obama and expect the next American president will just love his hate. Will that person believe that hate is the path toward Middle East peace?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

New Zealand, New Zealand Herald: “I Thought I Would Die”

Sarah Palin spoke a coherent sentence!

Sweden, Local: “Gender Neutral Toilets”

In the end, shit is shit.

South Africa, Mail & Guardian: “NO Fare Says Uber Taxi”

I guess fair is fair.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Perfect Pancakes”

At least something is perfect in Russia.

Norway, Norway Post: “Winter Holiday Begins”

From now until 2016, the clowns run our Congress.

They’re Watching You!

I, together with millions of Americans was so pleased in 2008 that we could vote for a president who was a former teacher of Constitutional law. After eight years of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld abusing the very basis of our Constitution we looked forward to a new era in which the rule of law would be the normal operating mode of our government. Barack Obama taught CONSTITUTIONAL LAW! Surely, a person with that background would uphold the law and ensure that constitutional rights would be accorded to one and all. And, then meant, also to those in jail. Alas, that was then, and now is now.

A new report from the American Civil Liberties Union identifies a new approach in our government to the issue of individual rights. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is now taking photos of our license plates in order to establish a data base. OH, the DEA is also taking pictures of those who drive the car as well as those who are passengers. I assume this also is part of a data base. Hey, whatever happened to the idea of individual rights. OH, I am certain our Constitutional lawyer will make certain that he is only doing this to protect us against bad people.

Happy New Year For Vladimir??

It was fourteen years ago on New Years eve, 1999, that President Boris Yeltsin of Russia turned over power to a former KGB agent named, Vladimir Putin. Little did he know that his protege had big ideas about what should occur in Russia. Boris still lived in the shadow of Communist Soviet Union and hoped that both Gorbachev and he represented a new spirit for the Russian people that would lead the nation into an era of cooperation with the European Union and the United States. They felt it was time to end the Cold War and initiate an era of Warm feelings and cooperation with the world. Putin arrived, and so did a group of oligarchs who plundered Russia of its riches on the road to wealth and power. Putin worked with these men including many who were his cronies from the old days of the secret police. Since then, a portion of the population has enjoyed the good life, but only a portion, the majority of people have more access to wealth, but each year they fall further and further into poverty and despair.

Gleb Pavlovsky, a political commentator in Russia raises several issues confronting the nation. “The question is not whether Putin stays on, but whether the horse survives. he has no plan.”He promised to protect freedoms of speech, conscience, the media and property. In those early days he assured the people of Russia they would enjoy the “fundamental rights of a civilized society.” Unfortunately, they now enjoy the rights of a totalitarian society. What next for Mother Russia?
