Israel Round Up-July 2010
By Laura Rosen Cohen
I know it has been a while since I wrote up a round up – my life has been pretty busy lately, but I know how important Israel is to you and to your readers so I knew that I had to catch you up. I’m going to try to give you a picture of some of the things that I have been thinking about lately with respect to Israel and the Western world-I think they all relate. As always, please feel free to leave any questions in the comments and I will try to address them in an upcoming post.
This story is about the attempts by European Muslims to make Sweden Judenrein – and they have almost succeeded (if you want to see what happens when Muslim “youths” take over a city, just google “Malmo/rape/infidel women”). I wonder if Europeans are really actually happy with the way in which their Jews were killed and then after the way, their elites imported vast numbers of poor, religious Muslims from various sharia-based nations, with little intention of absorbing into the larger culture. Are they happy to see these new immigrants attack Holocaust survivors and physically threaten and assault local Jews? I guess so.
Did you all read about how President Obama suggested that Israelis distrust him because of his “funny”middle name – Hussein? I’m sure you did. A friend of mine said “isn’t it time we get over the funny name stuff?”. She rightly pointed out that sometimes you are allowed to talk about it (i.e in Cairo) and sometimes you are not (in America for example). That’s the thing about Lefty. Lefty always wants to make up and change the rules. Like how the Persian Madman denies the Holocaust, but wants the new and improved nuclear one that he is planning to be much, much more effective. They want it both ways. I thought that Jennifer Rubin, from Commentary, put it best. She writes “President Obama: Israelis are racists and some of my best political hacks are Jews.”
Anyway between you and me, I think Ahmedinejad has waaaaay too much time on his hands if he is focusing on a new Haram Hair-Do Squad.
This is an important story that I think a lot of people missed. Remember that Britain is the land of the Magna Carta, and then read about how a British judge so sympathized with the Palestinians that a complete miscarriage of justice occurred. Jew hatred was more important than punishing criminals. If this had happened in America, the judge would possibly have been sacked (well, let’s hope so). Melanie Phillips has also written about this case.
The pathetic Turks continue to dig their heels in and whine about Israel. Turkey is really going down the tubes. Finally, at least Israelis have started to fight back with their wallets. How’s that anti-Israel stuff tasting nowadays, Turkey? How do you say “bite me” in Turkish?
But it’s not just Americans who have naïve, “good intentions”. Israel is chock full of idiotic utopians, too.
Anyway, I don’t want to leave you depressed. I still remain totally optimistic about America’s future and the future of the Jews and Israel. I’m optimistic about November, too. I think that despite the damage (and it is extensive) that the current administration has done to your incredible country, that the ship will right itself. I feel very honoured to be able to share my thoughts with you here and feel comforted by the fact that there are so many decent, hard-working, straight thinking people among you and look forward to hearing your thoughts on these and other items.
Here’s a last link that I really loved. I have a soft spot for people with disabilities, and the people who take care of them. I believe that the way we treat disabled and vulnerable people speaks to our own humanity. Lefty hates disabled people – that’s always been obvious to me.
I thought this video was pretty inspiring. It’s the story of the SHALVA organization in Israel that helps kids with special needs. To me it shows how one person can make a difference in the lives of so many others, by just making the decision to do something-and to ‘repay’ a kindness. I was very moved by the founder’s words – it’s an incredible picture of ‘people who can’t take care of themselves still trying to take care of the defenders of the Jews and the Land of Israel’. If people who can’t take care of themselves are doing something for Israel, what should the rest of us be doing? Are we doing anything? What are you doing? Something about that idea gives me chills.
