The bad news started coming to my doorstep about three weeks ago. On Thursday afternoon, a young lady knocked on our door asking for charity. She was staying at the girls high school in Ma’alé Levoná after being ejected from her home in Ramat Migron the day before. I did not know where her family is staying, or what they were to do, but I did what I could to help her out. It was a pitiable sum of money – but it was a good part of what we had at the moment.

The next night, eating Sabbath dinner at a neighor’s house, my wife was complaining about the pains she was enduring because a bus driver had stopped so fast that she fell and suffered from whiplash, and our hostess wanted to help put things in perspective for her by getting her to see that things could be worse. She told us of a neighbor of ours – let’s call him Barry – who was driving home past Sínjil, the Arab village at very the bottom of Levoná, the hill/mountain where we live. Arabs threw rocks through his windshield, spraying him with shattered glass, and they threw another rock through the back windshield, injuring his wife, Lee. He managed to bring the car to a halt, and then to drive up the hill home – where an ambulance promptly took the two of them to a hospital in Jerusalem. This was similar to rock throwing incidents that had occurred over the last couple of months or so, hundreds of them, at Shiló, Elí, Shuafát, Ma’alé Adumím, and other places as well. But this time, we knew the victims. Had it been me and had I Barry’s pistol, I would have also stopped the car – and fired at the Arab attackers, attempting to kill them if I could. But it wasn’t me. I sat and listened to our hostess, and kept my anger to myself.

This may sound like a lot of news, a lot of events occurring here – as though there were a great deal to write about. Truth be told though, overall, not too much has happened newswise in the last twenty years since this interview with the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, z”l, hy”d. Note that this C-Span interview was in February, 1989. If you watch it, and change a few names, you will see the same problems facing the region then as face the region today. An Arab state in Judea and Samaria would be a dagger in the heart of our country. That was true in February 1989, and it is true today as well.

Let’s look at the events that have occurred in the last twenty years to make the situation different.

The Israeli army evacuated south Lebanon

Nine years ago, under the “leadership”, if one wishes to call it that, of Ehud Barak, the IDF “evacuated” south Lebanon. Actually, the evacuation was a rout, and Israeli forces, having signaled that they were leaving, were attacked by HizbAllah, which crowed like drunken braggarts in an back alley that they had “driven” the Zionists from Lebanon. Leaving aside all the talk and endless talk over this hill or that hill the bottom line was this. The cushion that Israel had from missile attack from the north was gone, and HizbAllah was in due course armed by its Shi’a sponsor, Iran. By 2005, tens of thousands of rockets sat in south Lebanon, a new dagger, now aimed at the Galilee.

Arabs launch a terror war in September 2000

Having walked out of “talks” at Camp David in July 2000, the PLO leader and pedophile, Yasser Arafat, orchestrated a rebellion similar to the 1936 rebellion his uncle orchestrated. Over 1,000 Israelis died in terror attacks, many similar to the suicide bombing at the Dophinarium Disco on 1 June 2001. This horrific attack devastated hundreds of lives in Israel, killing 21 young people and wounding over 160. There were shootings in French Hill in Jerusalem – four of them; there was a suicide bombing at the Park Hotel at a Passover Seder, there were attacks in Be’ér Sheva. It took over two years of sustained Arab terror before the Israeli government was even willing to conduct an organized campaign to attempt to stop it. Through all this, through even the seizure and looting of the Christian Church of the Sepulchre in Bethlehem, the government refused to abandon a “peace accord” with the Arab murderers. One has to wonder if these fools belonged in the halls of an insane asylum rather than in the halls of government.

P.S. The Christians blamed Israel for the Arab attack on their church. In my opinion our forces should have blown up the damned church with all the terrorists in it. Then the Christians would have at least had something to whine over with justification.

The Israeli army evacuates Gaza and expels Israeli residents

In an act of treason and cowardice that shall stain this nation until it is corrected, the government of Israel, under heavy American pressure, expelled the Jewish residents of Gush Qatif, 8,000 people who had built a thriving vegetable industry. It uprooted hundreds of families from their homes, destroyed many profitable businesses, and ruined the lives of loyal Israelis – all for the illusory promise of peace from an enemy that only delivers death and war. And all that Israel received for this expulsion of its citizens was the criticism of the world for not destroying itself faster – and thousands of Qassam rockets attacking S’derót, Ashqelón and the kibbutzim surrounding the Gaza Strip. The year after the expulsion, Hamas, the governing terror force there, kidnapped Gil’ád Shalít, who is still held hostage, and began a war against us – a war which spread rapidly into an event that became the defining event of the first decade of the 21st Century for us in Israel.

HizbAllah subjects Israel to rocket attacks from Lebanon

On 12 July 2006, HizbAllah began massive rocket attacks on the Galilee. All things considered, these rocket attacks were very mild. The Katyusha (Katie) rocket only damages when it hits something. It killed a woman drinking coffee on her balcony because it hit the balcony and the woman. But otherwise, if it hit something inanimate, it destroyed it – or if it hit a road, for example, it just sat in the road, having created a small crater. Only 40 people were killed in the bombardment of 4,000 rockets that lasted about a month.

But the rockets sowed terror. Nearly the entire population of the Galilee fled, with the government officials fleeing first, like rats running from a sinking ship. Israel responded to this bombardment, and the response was to go to war. But the tactics used were inefficient, the forward bases were not supplied, the force used was far greater than the force needed because of the way the United States government handcuffed the Israeli “leadership”. The American government would not countenance this tactic or that tactic and the IDF wound up attacking along the “line of expectation” – the place where the enemy expected us to hit. There was no element of surprise at all. It was brute force used, and the brute force was not sufficient to effectively dislodge the enemy. When finally victory was in sight – then and only then did the United States step in and demand a cease-fire.

The corrupted flunkies in Jerusalem who ruin this nation on America’s and Europe’s behalf followed orders like good dogs – proving not only that all we have is falafel, but all we have is a falafel republic as well, a pathetic puppet of American and European imperialists. So, over 100 soldiers sacrificed their lives for absolutely nothing. A neighbor of mine, Eli, explained what he felt our position to be this way. “The Americans have us strangled with the arms, and the Europeans have us strangled with the economy.” He then shrugged his shoulders – a very Gallic shrug (Eli is originally from Marseilles) – as if to say, “there is nothing to be done about it all.” This whole mess became known as the Second Lebanon War – a worse disaster than the First Lebanon War 27 years ago.

In the last three years, HizbAllah has been re-supplied by their Persian masters, and now, they sit on our northern border with more and better rockets than they had in 2006. It is likely that they can hit Jerusalem, and Tel Aviv and possibly even Be’ér Sheva in the northern Negev.

About a year ago, the Hamas terror regime stepped up its rocket attacks on southern Israel, occasionally suffering “work accidents” as careless handling of the rockets caused the Arabs working on them to die. Finally, the IDF attacked Gaza and pretended that they would silence the Qassams from Gaza. The military operation was more designed to get votes for the Kadima and Labor parties than anything else, and while all sorts of idiots and moralists have whined over Operation Cast Lead, the bottom line was that Labor and Kadima got more votes in the February 2009 election; and Jews and Arabs died for nothing. The terrorists still control Gaza, still fire Qassam rockets at Israel, and now are testing missiles that will be able to hit Tel Aviv.

Further, we face renewed war in Lebanon. But the likely intiators of that war, HizbAllah, are presently busy helping the Persians in Yemen, as the Houthi Shi’a face off against the Wahhabi savages (allies/sponsors of the Yemeni regime) there. So, unless we attack Persia, we will have to wait in line to be attacked, while HizbAllah attends to affairs in Yemen. But when this war does come it will be far worse than what we faced in 2006. Michael Totten, writing for Commentary Magazine, confirms my view that HizbAllah will strike the whole country, and that we will see, in this war, the sky scrapers of Tel Aviv go up in flames. According to Totten, “if Hezbollah manages to turn all of Israel into a kill zone where there is no place to run, Israelis will panic like they haven't since the 1973 Yom Kippur War when it briefly appeared the Egyptian army might overrun the whole country. I wouldn't want to be anywhere in Lebanon while Israelis are actively fending off that kind of assault. No country can afford to be restrained while fighting for its survival.” This is not a whole lot different from my own assessment. The streets will run with Arab blood, as Israelis who are basically just Jews come home, sick and tired of restraining themselves, unleash an anger 17 centuries in the making.

It may seem that we in Israel are a “generation lost in space – with no time to start again”. It may seem that all we can do is “clench our fists in rage” as forces of evil and puppets of foreign powers put this land on a sacrificial altar to foreign gods of “peace” and death. But I do not believe so. It has gotten considerably worse than it was in 1989 when Rabbi Meir Kahane, may his memory be a blessing, and may G-d avenge his blood, sat pessimistically estimating the future of the region on C-Span. But he had faith in the G-d of Israel and I “have faith in G-d above” and in His Prophets.

In his forthcoming book, Cracking the Qur’an Code (Root & Branch Association, Ltd), my friend and colleague, Lowell Gallin writes,

In the not-too-distant future, I believe that the world will hear Muslims chanting Allahu Akbar (‘God is great’) and Jews chanting Am Yisrael Chai (‘The People of Israel lives’) – Together.

In the not-too-distant past, two brothers, Ishmael the elder and Isaac the younger, buried Abraham their father – Together.

In the not-too-distant future, I believe that the Children of Ishmael and the Children of Israel (Abraham’s grandson and Isaac’s younger son) will replant and rebuild the Lands of Arabia and Israel, as part of a truly new Middle East – Together.

In the not-too-distant future, I believe that the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel will wake up and return to the Land of Israel – Together.

In the not-too-distant future, I believe that the Kingdom of David and Solomon will be reestablished in the Land of Israel, and the Twelve Tribes of Israel will ratify selection of the King. Together.

In the not-too-distant future, I believe that two brothers, Nebaioth and Kedar, Ishmael’s first and second born sons, will bring offerings to the rebuilt Third and Final Temple of Jerusalem – Together.

A few years ago, I found myself on a Jerusalem construction site together with an Arab foreman and his two young co-workers. The foreman spoke of the problems plaguing Arabs and Jews in the Promised Land. I said that a descendant of David, the King Messiah, would arise to sit on the throne of his fathers, and that he would bring peace between Arabs and Jews in the Promised Land.

‘When?’ the foreman quietly asked.

‘Soon’, I answered.

No one spoke or moved. Though we were alone on a construction site, and I could easily have had an ‘accident’, I felt no fear of them.

At that moment we were united by our shared fear of God and respect for His servant David, whom the Qur’an describes as a king, a prophet and the author of the Psalms.

When all this transpires – and it will transpire – the trouble will no longer be at my doorstep – it will be at yours.

About Ruvy

Hi!! Thanks for coming to my article! I was raised in Brooklyn, was graduated from the City University of New York in 1978 with a BA in political science and public administration there. I lived in Minnesota for a number of years. There I managed restaurants and wrote stories. We moved with our children family to Israel where we now reside. My work can be found at Ruvy's Roost, Jewish Indy,, and on Facebook under my full name, Reuven Kossover

    The actions of the goon squads of the traitors in Jerusalem more and more make me want to quit my position as a police volunteer. These scum in the Yassa”m have their headquarters in the Russian Compound in J-lem where my own unit is located. Just being in the same yard with them sickens me.

    Continuing violence in Samaria as police attack Jews to the applause of Arabs.

    Units of the goon squad of the Israel Police, Yassa”m, attacked residents of Kedumim Sunday morning, and beat up demonstrators, Arutz Sheva reported today. There is a video to be watched along with the report.

    From the article:

    The inspectors were accompanied by special Yassam unit police officers, who reportedly used strong violence to disperse the protestors. The Yassamnikim hit the town’s mayor, Chananel Durani, and his deputy, eyewitnesses say, and threw young girls on the street, as seen on the video above.

    The inspectors ultimately succeeded in entering the town, where they placed the stop-work orders and quickly left. Their cars were pelted with eggs and other objects, courtesy of the residents.

    The Shomron Residents Committee reports that on their way to Kedumim, the forces drove through three nearby Arab villages – Funduk, Haja, and Kadoum – places that the army generally considers too dangerous to enter in order to apprehend terrorists or confiscate weapons.

    To the Jewish residents’ horror, they learned that the Arab residents applauded as the convoy of forces drove through.

  • Looks like the “poor Palestinans” just can’t keep their word – even to keep a demonstration non-violent. They are no different there than they are here – liars.

    From the article: Police said they were dismayed that the demonstrators had not kept their word to maintain order. “We’re disappointed that the protestors broke their agreement,” Sergeant Steve Burke told the Australia Network News (ANN). “They said it was going to be peaceful and in the end they’ve forced the issue and we’ve had to force them back.”

  • Apparently, the Christian Democrats in Switzerland don’t want us Jews to die with any respect in their country.

    The solution is to give the Swiss the middle finger, clean their fucking clocks and leave for Israel. We don’t need for Jews to hang around Lake Geneva anymore to be whores to the self-righteous goyisher Schweitzerdeutsch. We need every Jew home in Israel, where they have real value. In exile, Jews are nothing but self-hating victims who deprive themselves of pride and honor.


    More bad news at my doorstep.

    A woman was attacked outside of Sinjil this morning in a rock throwing incident, injured and taken to hospital. I’ll have to find out which one of my neighbors this was – if indeed it was a neighbor.

  • Dr. Reason

    I’m clearly an idiot for disagreeing with Ruvy’s call to nuke innocent people….what a fool I am

  • Dr. Reason

    a fool ?

  • Rather than waste my time in useless dialogue with fools over views that I hold – will not back down from, I am moving forward. The central issue of this article, is the gutlessness of the government of the State of Israel, its descent into a a collection of naddering nabobs of whiny kikes who beg and plead – and thus get only contempt from a world that hates beggars, wheedlers and whiners – especially when they are Jews.

    Isi Liebler, wrote an article in the Jerusalem Post recently, asking “why the world hates us?”

    Such tiresome things to read! But I did respond to the good Mr. Liebler, a letter reproduced below.

    My Dear Mr. Liebler,

    You are a good man, with a kind heart, but you cannot afford to deceive yourself that the joke of a régime we have in Israel is any kind of democracy.

    In a democracy, a party leader, when he takes a referendum on an issue of nation importance within his party, stands by that referendum. Ariel Sharon did not stand by his party’s decision on Gush Qatif. In fact, he eventually bolted his own party, creating a garbage pail where all the most corrupt trash of the Israeli oligarchy could hide hehind his broad hips. And then he promptly had a stroke and died, being dragged back to life so that the leader of the Likud, Bibi Netanyahu could be denied the premiership by an incompetent thief like Ehud Olmert (with the willing cooperation of Menny Mazuz).

    Mazuz needn’t have bothered. When Moshe Feiglin won a solid position on the Likud list so that he would have a nearly guaranteed set in the Knesset, Bibi changed the rules – illegally – because he is a bully with no guts when it comes to standing up to the goyim. And now he panders to his masters in the United States, just like Sharon and Olmert. This is not a dictatorship – yet. But whatever this system is, it is no democracy.

    As to why the world hates us, the answer is simple. Everyone hates the beggar who wheedles and pleads. A nation as strong as this one should continue to stride across the Sinai, should have expelled the Arabs, control Lebanon up to the Litani River, and have already bombed and destroyed the Persian attempts to build a nuclear facility. The world would not like us – they would hate us. But they have always hated us. The appropriate way to treat people who hate you is to deny them all the benefits of your science and medicine and let them stew in their hatred, their ignorance and their stupidity – until they destroy themselves in their evil. We have no obligation to attempt to perfume trash. Let them come to us for spiritual guidance when the time comes. If we are incapable of being strong in the face of hatred – we do not deserve respect and we do not deserve to be sought out for advice.

    Shabbat Shalom,

  • Dr. Reason

    just repeating your own words – or dont you have the guts to read them again?

  • And obviously I’m right.

  • If that comment bothers you, then read this article and debate its merits. I don’t think you have the guts to.

  • Dr. Reason

    No – I am not going to let this vile view get the better of me. I just want to make sure people who read the above article understand what lies just beneath the surface.

  • Dr. Reason

    Going against my better judgement I will engage in dialogue with this person as they never fail to show their true colours as a result of people doing that.
    You mention survival – I take it that doesn’t include the children who would be “turned to nuclear glass” then ????
    Don’t worry I do have guts and there is nothing brave in what you said in that comment – or does that make a ‘little girl who stamps their feet in anger’ ?
    Yes I recommend a boycott – because if I heard your views in a public place I would feel obliged to respond to your call for violence – then and there.

  • “If I don’t like what he says, I won’t look! I don’ wanna see what I don’ like cause I don’ like it! So there!”

    Little girls who stamp their feet in anger argue the way the commenter does in comment #18. If this individual thinks it is evil to survive, then what I have said concerning nuking your enemies (and these people are your enemies) is evil.

    This commenter recommends boycott. Had this commenter any guts, he’d recommend killing me that I might no longer speak….

    LMAO ROtF….

  • Dr. Reason

    HEALTH WARNING:- This article is written by the same person who wrote (on the piece called Time To Retire An Old Cop)only a day before…

    “If you guys nuke Riyadh and Tehran – one good 5 megaton blast a piece should do it – everyone will sit up and remember never to mess with the Americans. There is a secondary message that will be sent as well – especially to all those Chinese who think they have you over a barrel. The message will be “be nice to the American debtor lest he get mad at you and turn you to nuclear glass”.

    Why people are still entering into dialogue with a person with such sick and evil views promoting the killing of countless innocent people is beyond me.

  • Zedd,

    I’m not wrong, I’m right. And I’m not alone in my views. But let Joe Farrah explain all this to you. If your are open-minded to even read it (which I doubt).

    So far as I’m concerned you can keep your bullshit diplomats home, and keep your Monopoly money. If you were lucky enough to have a government in Israel of real men, instead of wheedling little kikes, you would have very little in the line of terrorism to worry about.

  • Zedd

    Ridiculous. People like you keep the rest of us paying our tax dollars to keep you in check. Folks like you are responsible for the instability all over the world. Your opinion is much too important. We’ve got to waist time sending diplomats to keep your types from completely loosing it and going postal on every living thing on the planet.

    Its just an opinion Ruvy. You could be wrong you know.


  • Brother Ruvy, I am giving thanks for the nation of Israel on this day of thanksgiving. May God bless and preserve you and yours.

    And thank you Brother Silas for your warm fuzzies.

  • Thank you for the link, Heloise. I looked at it, and frankly, it sounded like so much nonsense to me, like a Catholic trying to finesse Jews at their own faith.

    I’ve dealt with too much of that in my life, and the minute I see it, I get turned off – that happened here. Thank you nevertheless. Your heart was in the right place.

  • FYI, Google allows blogs from wordpress, maybe others to be translated instantly. I’ve had hits from Russian and Japan. Hope they are not hacking. And I can not vouch for the translation. But that is one option if you want people from other tongues to get in on the conversation.


  • Here’s one reference I used “national revelation.” My blog is “Jews Await National Revelation rather than a Messiah” or something like that at the Trough.

    I read about 5 articles then wrote a blog about it. I just put this link into the article though. Marty’s explanation is good. I am not sure if this only applies to observant Jews and/or Orthodox Jews.


  • I’m recommending this item for you to read from my blogging site because it represents a typical viewpoint of Muslims. It’s worth reading to see why it is that I insist so strongly that the road to peace in this part of the world lies through religious observance.

  • Brother Al,

    I can’t ask for much more in the line of support from an American than you offer. To the degree that your own beliefs allow, you track my views. Of course, you see me as harsh on America – but you must realize that I am even harsher on the puppets who ruin this nation, people the Hebrew media call “leaders” as they prattle on and on about that non-existent entity dimokrátia yisraelít – Israeli democracy. Elsewhere, David Hornik complained about how it is fashionable to bash Israel. This is the essence of my response, one that was abnormally restrained:

    Mike, commenting earlier, hit the nail on the head on this comment thread. It is worth repeating his sage words.

    When Israel acts as dhimmi to the rest of the world, begging for its acceptance, the world loses its respect for Israel, just like in any relationship where the dominant one has no respect for the submissive one who always seeks the approval of the dominant one.

    Mr. Hornik, I appeal to you to remember what David ben-Gurion always said: “it doesn’t matter what the goyim think – it matters what we do.” Then note the reaction of this commenter, Rob;

    my wife and kids are israeli arabs and we have been living in israel for several years now. israeli jews are the most decent people i’ve met across the world. sure, they are not perfect, but they have time and again gone out of their way to help and befriend us as non-jews/arabs, whatever so many times when they didn’t have to. i don’t believe any of the rubbish propaganda (read: lies) from ignorant people with a thirst for hate that have never met the decent, moral people they smear. i can’t say the same about the israeli arab muslims/palestinians, though, because although they are lovely people in their own right, they are generally drunk with irrational hate which poisons their society to the point i no longer enjoy spending time there. those are the facts.

    Let’s not worry about what the goyim overseas say. They didn’t build this country at all – we did. Let’s concentrate on the strengths we have and the assertiveness we need to display.

    Let’s start with dropping the term “Palestinian”. The resident Arabs are either tribes here for a long time (like the Cherkessim and the Druze), Jews in Judea who converted to Islam under immense pressure, or Egyptians, Syrians or Iraqis who came here because there was work.

    We have to state – time after time after time – that there is no such thing as “Palestine” – because there isn’t. We have to state – time after time after time – that Arabs who wish to live here as Israelis are welcome to do so, and back that up with concrete action.

    Then finally, we must make sure that this land is governed by rule of law, and that the rule of law is applied equally. Incitement by Arabs must be punished by arrest and trial – no matter how much violence they threaten; only then can we honestly seek to seriously punish Jews for incitement. Terror by Arabs must be met with the death penalty – swift and sure, so that we are not feeding a hostile Arab prison population. Terror must be treated as rebellion and treason and punished accordingly. Only then can we demand that Jews not act against Arabs here and sentence them severely.

    Foreign incitement and espionnage must be dealt with as acts of war; the governments of the violating countries must be warned that espionnage will receive the maximum sentence, and that efforts to weaken the security of this nation will be dealt with as an act of war. Their assets will be seized, their embassies and consulates seized, their property will be seized. The copperators with foreign governments – like Peace Now and their ilk – must be dissolved, and their leaders imprisoned or executed, depending on the level of treason they have committed. Those who would destroy the Israeli polity must lose their chance to continue to destroy this country from within.

    This is just a beginning, but with that beginning, perhaps our government can reclaim its sovereignty here. The days of the falafel republic must end.

  • Big Brother Al Barger, my cuddly teddy bear, I still love you. I agree, Obama is destined to be a one term President. He has about a year to get his act together. If the results of the midterm elections in 2010 are less than stellar, I fear that the Mormon will be our next President. And if that happens, I’m applying for political asylum in any Eastern European nation who’ll have me.

  • Brother Ruvy, as an American, I’m very frustrated with the candy ass way we deal with our jihadist enemies – which are not nearly as bad a threat to us as what you continually deal with. So I am also exasperated with your government from a distance.

    A lot of this seems to come from the largely admirable Jewish traits of self-examination and self-doubt. The willingness to look for how you may be in the wrong, seeking empathy and to love thine enemies and the reluctance to hurt others are great things – in measured doses.

    Not being much of a believer, and certainly not of the Jewish religion, I’m not counting on a Messiah to come save you.

    But what I AM counting on is basic mammalian psychology. Thinking of it in terms of something like Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a basic lower rung necessity of survival will eventually overwhelm the higher levels of seeking (largely misdirected ideas of) self-actualization as a sensitive and loving moral peacemaker or whatever exactly dumb shit keeps your people so restrained from giving your enemies the crushing blows that they so richly deserve.

    At some point, the necessity of vigorous self-defense becomes an absolutely existentially unavoidable point that the biggest pussy liberal secularists will not be able to avoid. Pure direct immediate survival necessity will at some point flatly overwhelm any stupid faux-morality that is enabling the current tolerance for people busy killing you.

    But the longer it waits, the more confident your enemies have become in their abilities to restrain you through international politics or through delusional notions of their own military superiority, and the worse their attacks on you become – the worse the eventual and inevitable corrective bloodbath of Muslim/Arab shitheads will be.

    As an American, I apologize profusely for the absolutely treacherous and disloyal behavior of the Obama administration in particular – though I might be inclined to be somewhat less harsh about Americans or American government in general than you understandably are. Give or take Britain, Israel has been our most loyal friend in the world. You deserve much better from US.

    On the other hand, I strongly suspect that Obama will be a one term presidential failure – Jimmy Carter writ large, and that a lot of the stupidest left wing dumbasses will be swept out of power in the next couple of years.

    Moreover, when you eventually open up on your enemies – starting with Iranian nuclear facilities – there’ll be a lot of ground level support from American citizens that will at least substantially minimize whatever stupid treacherous responses the governmental leadership might be inclined to make. Or so I hope and pray, at least.

    Much love from the American heartland.

    (though I don’t remember anything about ‘no specific messiah’ in that work you’ll find the argument for shared experience)

    See The Kuzari dialogues — work of Rabbi Yehuda Halevi… soon to be a major motion picture, Mass Murder at Mount Sinai

  • Dear Heloise,

    I was unaware of it. But now it puts lots of jewish history in clear perspective.

    In a sense it is a belief that there may be no specific messiah, Jewish or otherwise but that the people will be the “messiah” and this will be revealed nationally. It is a national revelation because well then no one can be deceived. Everyone will know the same thing at the same time. There is no room for individual knowing.

    Sources, please? Sites to visit, perhaps?

  • That should have been “The IDF, once the pride of our country….” in the previous comment

  • What are the solutions to peace in Israel?


    The answers to your question are on page 5 of this article. All the things my friend Lowell wrote about are drawn from Jewish Prophecy. What I left out of quote above were the sources of the Prophecy. And it will all happen – and is all beginning to happen, even as I write this now on a cloudy Wednesday morning in the Samarian mountains.

    What you need to grasp, and grasp clearly, is that at present, Israel is in the hands of a traitorous régime that does not serve the interests of its citizens, but the interests of its puppet masters in Europe and Washington.

    The value for us of your sitting president, who for you is a disastrous incompetent, is that he has ripped the mask of “friendship” from the relationship between Israel and the States. The relationship is clearly now revealed to be one of bully (the States) and the bullied (the people of Israel), with big-ego and big-checkbook American Jews serving as a judenrat, a puppet council (think J-Street) in the States, and with corrupted flunkies serving as a judenrat (think Netanyahu and Barak) here.

    The IDF, one the pride of our people, is under the command of traitorous goons who hate G-d and the Torah, while most of the rank and file are restive and angry, believers in the country, in G-d, and its mission for mankind, who feel like my son and his girl-friend, that they have no other country. This restive underclass in the IDF, both the draftees and the reservists, are the hope of the country. In time, they will rid us of the traitors at the top.

  • Ruvy, yesterday I asked myself a question and then blogged the answer.Here’s the question “Will the Jewish Messiah be Jewish?”

    In looking for answers I found this jewish belief instead “national revelation.” So I changed what I was going to write to write about that belief.

    I was unaware of it. But now it puts lots of jewish history in clear perspective.

    In a sense it is a belief that there may be no specific messiah, Jewish or otherwise but that the people will be the “messiah” and this will be revealed nationally.

    It is a national revelation because well then no one can be deceived. Everyone will know the same thing at the same time. There is no room for individual knowing.

    I am not telling you this per se Ruvy just stating a gist of it for others who may be unaware as I was. It’s deep and so are the problems of Arabs and Jews. I think that they will either live together or die together.


  • Wow, Ruvy, I am sorry to hear that you and your people have to endure so much turmoil in your Country. Seems like it is an never-ending ordeal and I wish it would end. What are the solutions to peace in Israel?
