One thing can always be counted on whenever and wherever you go…. A little anti semitism.

Wise guy ! Thanks.

The world closes its eyes and shuts its ears to Israel, but nots its mouth

This is a timely article. How sad that history keeps on repeating itself – certainly as far as Israel is concerned. Someone suggested circulating it. Yes, and sending it to your newspapers (they probably won’t publish it, but that should not deter us from sending it). The world has a cold spot in their warm hearts for the Jew. I am proud to be Jewish, A Zionist and an IDF supporter!

How true

When will the world wake up?

We must do as much as possible.

American jews need to do as much as possible to get the word out regarding the need to support our brothers & sisters in Israel. As well, the unspeakable actions of Hamas that we are hearing more and more about each day need to be publicized and heard. Thankfully, Israel has started speaking out to the world, showing the proof of Hamas’ insane actions against their own people. Eric Hoffer’s words were written 46 years ago and the hatred continues! Ask Jews in Europe what is happening there…it could happen here in America as well.

Prophetic insight.

“…as it goes with Israel so will it go with all of us.”
Looking from the Geula perspective only !
