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?

Death Has No End

American society is supposedly threatened by Muslim terrorists. Our government will arrest any Muslim suspect who has a gun on grounds society cannot allow potential terrorists wandering our streets with guns. Here in Chicago, with a population that is one fourth that of New York City, there are more murders so far this year than in New York City, and ALL are committed by AMERICAN BORN CHRISTIANS. Each day there is one after another reports of people engaged in normal daily activities who wind up dead–NOT by a terrorist, but by a fellow American.

Sheriff Darren Goforth stopped at a gas station to fill up his car with gas. How could such a trivial activity lead to death? Who knows? The only thing we do know is that Shannon Miles pumped bullets into the back of Goforth. One is left baffled by these events. WE Americans have created a gun culture and the only end result is the use of guns, and those guns are NOT pointed at targets unless the target is a living person!

Wisconsin Milk

Scot Walker is a Republican. Scott Walker has a hero named Donald Trump. Scott Walker wants a high, high wall built on the border with Mexico, heck, he even wants one built on the Canadian border a– all three thousand miles long. Scott Walker has taken a stand against immigrants, and wants them to quit taking jobs away from Americans. He wants an “immigration system that works. I don’t think you do it with amnesty.”

There is one slight problem for Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin. According to the Wisconsin Dairy Association about HALF THE WORKERS ON FARMS ARE IMMIGRANTS! According to dairy farmer John Rosnow, his anti-immigrant proposal would “put most farmers in the state out of business.”

Oh, well, Scott broke unions and now he will break farmers!

Female Trump Speaks

On occasion I become somewhat confused when Republican discuss issues of world importance. Sarah Palin ran on the ticket with John McCain for the presidency in 2008. As I recall, she embraced McCain as a great man and a born leader. Donald Trump insulted a war hero whose name is John McCain and the woman who ran with McCain now raves about the wonderful Trump man! “Voters crave the anti-status politician. They want results. They need someone who will fire all the politically correct police. Everything about Donald Trump is avant garde.

These comments are so incredibly insensitive toward a man who lifted Palin from being an unknown governor into a major political figure. How low can this woman sink?

Does Obama Hate Jews, Israel and So On?

I continually encounter Jews who insist the following:

1. Barack Obama is the worst president in history.

2. President Obama hates Jews.

3. President Obama hates Israel.

4.President Obama wants Iran to wipe out Israel.

Then again,there is the record of President Obama

1. He has numerous Jews surrounding him every day.

2. Under his administration Israel has been given $15 billion in military aid.

3. Under his administration the Dome was built which can knock down incoming missiles.

4. Secretary of State John Kerry has spent months attempting to assist Israel to reach an agreement with Muslim leaders.

If such actions represent, HATE, please get Obama to hate me!

Jeb Does It Again!

Let me get this straight–the grandfather of Jeb Bush was a distinguished US Senator,his father was a President, and his brother was sort of a President. One would assume with that political background, Jeb would understand something about the world of politics. Jeb was down Texas way when someone raised the issue of “anchor babies,” those born to mothers who were not American citizens at the moment of their birth. Jeb wanted to make clear his position on anchor babies. When he refers to those babies, he means “those born to Asian parents.”

Jeb, Jeb, my little Jeb boy. There are a few million people in this nation who come from Asian societies and are working to become US citizens. So, my little Jeb boy, when you refer to “Asians” you just insulted a few million people.

Jebbie, my boy, a bit of advice: Whatever the Donald man says,you say the opposite. At least you will not wind up insulting people –who vote!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

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

USA, Newsday: “I Just Lost Everything”

Today’s lament in America!

Russia, Moscow Times; “Take A Trip To Crimea”

For Putin that means not only a trip but take over Crimea.

Canada, Toronto Star: “Take A Trip To Mars”

Any place just let me escape Donald Trump’s voice!

Australia,Canberra Times: “My Worst Nightmare”

Being forced to spend eternity watching Fox News.

Egypt, al-ahram: Nudists In Despair”

But, not those watching them!

Migrants Keep On Coming

Thousands of migrants are finding ways to reach the shores European nations. They are desperate, they seek a land in which their children can attain education, and opportunities for work that leads to a decent level of life. The march of migrants is the oldest story in the history of humanity. Thousands of years ago,our ancestors decided to leave Africa, some turned right and headed for Asia, some went north to Europe. Those who became Europeans eventually became inhabitants of the New World.

There is something ironic listening to Donald Trump rave and rant about immigrants taking away the jobs of Americans. HIS ancestors were the Irish who flocked to America only to encounter those who feared and hated them. The Know Nothing Party of the 1850s wanted to end immigration of the poor Irish. Between 1880-1924 about twenty million immigrants arrived from Europe. We Americans area a nation of immigrants and each group has encountered the Donald Trumps of the time.

Donald, why don’t you go back to where you came from!

Just A Guy Named Joe

For many years when referring to the average American it is quite common to refer to this unknown person by calling him–Joe. Well, the guy named Joe is going to announce that he will run for president. Joe Biden is throwing his hat or name or whatever into the ring of combat. As of yet,I am not clear whether he seeks the Republican or the Democratic nomination.Wouldn’t you just enjoy a parade on stage of people seeking the Republican nomination and one is named–Joe? So,what does Joe Biden have to offer?

1.His name is Joe.

2.His name is not Hillary.

3.He was never married to a guy named,Bill.

5. On the other hand wouldn’t it be fun to have a ticket headed by Joe and Bill?

6. Joe Biden is a decent man. He is an intelligent man.

7. Donald and Joe on the stage would be a fascinating incident. Donald never ceasing to talk and Joe just listening and shaking his head.

8. How come we never have a guy named, Moishe?

P.S.Anyone for a George?

Another Shooting

There is one topic that is always on TV or discussed on social media or completely ignored by the NRA.A man who worked for a TV station was fired because of his strange behavior and, naturally, what else could he do,but prove that he is a man filled with rage and anger. Lester Flanagan had been working on a TV station in Virginia where he drove most people nuts with some rather strange words and behavior.He was finally fired,and, what else could he do to prove that he was not a nut–return to the studio while former colleagues were on the air and shoot them. He later turned the gun on himself.

The only sort of saving grace is that he was not another nut case white guy. Naturally, the NRA interprets this event as proof that guns save lives. If only all people on the set had a gun there could have been a shoot-out at the OK TV studio. There is no question this was one sick dude.The real question is why do people who display weird behavior have scant problems getting gun?

I expect the usual comments about too many guns and the need to regulate them.The only end to this madness is when American voters finally decide that common sense requires and end to gun ownership for most Americans!

Oh, for the record, he was a bona-fide Christian.
