Memorial Day 2017 #USA

memorial

Perhaps nothing speaks more eloquently to the sacrifice of the soldier than President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address:

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

50th Anniversary of the Reunification of Jerusalem-Yom Yerushalayim

Rabbi Sacks on the meaning of Jerusalem

Every Empire has tried to separate the Jewish People from Jerusalem. But Am Yisrael are still here, stronger than every before, and the enemies of freedom are no longer…..

Maybe someone should clue in the US State Department, Pentagon, and the White House to the reality of history….

Personally I have given up on caring what the rest of the world thinks about the Jewish connection to Jerusalem.

Here There Be Dragons

In ancient times when sailors came to the end of their maps, they knew the world did not end, but not knowing what was to come they warned, “Here there be dragons.”  For going forward the danger was immense.

Today, the former Chief Rabbi of Israel, and Holocaust survivor, says in response to the latest gas attack by Assad in Syria, that there is genocide happening there. The question  then, is what is the world to do?

Do we rush in?

Do we start a world war? For Russia and Iran are Assad’s patrons and going after Assad means we go after Putin, the Mullahs, and Iran’s proxies in Syria, Hezbollah, which has effectively become the state of Lebanon.

Do we have a no fly zone?

Do we put boots on the ground?

Do we create sanctions?

How do we help the innocents?

Civilized people know that the world needs to send a message.

The world cannot let this pass without action. It endangers our entire order, and the established norms against war crimes.

We truly are in unchartered territory.

Obama’s former Ambassador to Israel, summed up the situation very neatly on twitter.

 

This truly is unchartered international political territory.

Yes, the danger is immense….

Yes, Here there be dragons……

Meanwhile this is what the United Nations did to Syria today, a day after they committed an atrocious war crime.

 

The United States and Israel might actually have to stand against these war crimes alone.

 

UPDATE: The US has launched over 60 Tomahawk missiles at the Syrian base that launched the CW attack. The West is supporting Trump’s decision, while the typical villains, Russia and Iran, are condemning the retaliation as a war crime.

Putin, of course, is calling for an emergency Security Council meeting to condemn the US.

You would laugh if this wasn’t so sad.

“Where are your Jews?”

The UN Human Rights Council is known for its blatant antiIsrael lies. The most damning one they try to promote is the lie that Israel is an apartheid state, ethnically cleansing Palestinians. Vociferously pushed by the worst human rights abusers in the world.

Here, during a recent debate on Israel, UN Watch‘s Hillel Neuer silences the room with the question, “Where are your Jews?”

 

Who then truly promotes ethnic cleansing and apartheid in this world?

 

There was a Jewish Nakba and it was even bigger than the Palestinian one
