I don’t know if this will be perceived as a BREATH OF FRESH AIR, or as an ESCAPE from the on-going Political Warfare being waged between Republicans, for the Leadership of the Party, going into the November 2016 Election, since I’ve had enough for now of this election with squabbles of he said, she said, they said – AD NAUSEAM.
There is just so much one can take about the Media looking for every nuance and hint of controversy to blow-up into a NON-STORY, even if they have to create it.
I’m also really tired of people who are looking at this campaign as a CAGE MATCH, cheering on their champions as if they were Ultimate Fighters, without giving as much serious thought about who each Candidate is, what he or she has done, what he or she has said, and HOW they are ACTUALLY going to do what they’re promising.
And I’m NOT pointing fingers at the people who Comment and Read this BLOG.
I understand that FOX News and all the other Media, MUST soak up and regurgitate as much of this CRAP as they can, and for all of its worth, because that’s how they make their money. But for me . . . I’ve reached the limit for a while.
I AM JEWISH . . . which is something I have written about many times in the past. Anne is also Jewish. And if we could, we would have had a Bar Mitzvah (coming of age at 13 years old) for Stryker.
That said . . . every time a Jew is stabbed, shot, run down by a car or attacked anywhere in the world, just for being Jewish – that Jewish Victim could easily have been Anne or me.
When the Nazis and Nazi Supporters WORLDWIDE, especially throughout Europe, including Canada and the United States, attacked ONE JEW . . . EVERY JEW WAS ATTACKED.
To the Nazis and their supporters, it didn’t matter if the Jews were Secular, Religious, or considered themselves German or whatever nationality above being Jewish.
It also didn’t matter if the Jews made considerable contributions to the societies where they lived, or HUGE contributions to the world, in as many categories as one can imagine . . . including:
The Arts, Sciences, Health, Economics, Technologies, and beyond . . . because, even if Jews discovered the CURE FOR EVERYTHING and donated it to the world for FREE – they (we-me) would still be (Untermenschen) SUB-HUMAN Jews, as the Nazis portrayed us.
THAT WAS SEVERAL GENERATIONS AGO . . . less than three quarters of a century, AND WHAT HAS CHANGED?
Every Time a Jew is attacked in Israel, it’s not just an Israeli Jew – ITS ME.
Every Time a Jew is attacked in Europe, it’s not just a European Jew – IT’S ME.
Every Time a University disparages Israeli Academics, it’s not just Israeli Academics – IT’S ME.
Every Time a Jewish company or Product is LABELED for BOYCOTT, It’s not just a Jewish company or Product – IT’S ME.
And anyone who believes that this type of vicious ANTI-SEMITISM is not coming to our shores in Canada and the United States of America, and is not already here, he or she is as deluded . . . same as the Jews who voted for Barack Obama. Not just once, but twice.
Newly Minted, Pot Smoking Drama Teacher, Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, made an impassioned speech for Holocaust Liberation Day, using all of his staged theatrics to drive home his point, but he forgot to mention just one little thing in his speech . . . that it was 6-MILLION JEWS who were the reason and focus of the Holocaust.
He also forgot to include . . . that as many as HALF of Canada’s Able Bodied Male Population was overseas during WWII fighting Nazis, and that his privileged father, who was very much of age, decided instead to ride his Motorcycle around the Quebec Countryside wearing Nazi Paraphernalia.
Yet . . . Canadian Jews voted for his father, and for him in BIG numbers.
It is one thing to speak about the Liberation of Auschwitz, Birkenau, Majdanek, Buchenwald, Treblinka, Sobibor, and far too many other Death Camps to list in this editorial, to the absolute EVIL of Mankind . . . BUT IT IS SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY – to compare these EXTERMINATION, TORTURE, AND HUMAN EXPERIMENTAL CAMPS and the SLAUGHTER of 6-MILLION JEWS, to how Moslems and others are treated around the world.
TRIVIALIZING THE HOLOCAUST . . . and putting it on a par with other ghastly world events only serves to trivialize the greatest crime against humanity ever – but it doesn’t change the TRUTH.
And now, in Canada and the United States of America, serious talk is happening, mostly amongst LEFTIST politicians, all the way up to the Attorney General of the USA, to make it ILLEGAL to speak or write disparagingly about Moslems who are sworn to Hate, Murder, and support the Murder of Jews.
Obama spoke at a Radical Mosque yesterday (February 3, 2016), where he highlighted the great CONTRIBUTIONS Islam has made to the United States, right from the beginning, but NEVER pointed to any, since NONE exist.
Obama spoke about Islamo-Phobia in the USA, where Moslems are under attack, but that Pseudo–REALITY is without FOUNDATION. I don’t see any BOYCOTT movements against Moslems or Islamic Countries at any North American Colleges and Universities, do you?
I don’t hear of Moslems being frightened of attack at North American Colleges and Universities, as Jewish Students have to DEAL with everyday, do you?
I don’t hear of Moslems being told by the governments of where they live in European Societies, not to look too Moslem, as Jews are being warned EVERYDAY . . . not to look Jewish, do you?
I don’t see Swastikas painted on Mosques and at Moslem Cemeteries, which are routinely painted on Synagogue Walls and at Jewish Cemeteries, do you?
No one has to tell me how important the American Election is to the people of the United States of America – because whoever wins the White House in November, is just as important to the entire world as he or she will be to the USA.
AND AS AN UNAPOLOGETIC JEW . . . it is critical to me – for the same reasons as everyone else who loves FREEDOM and Limited Government, whether I am Secular or Religious, that the RIGHT person must take the Oath Of Office in January 2017, and that he or she must be from the Republican Party, because anything else will spell serious trouble for the world, and spell DOOM for the Jewish People.
A lot of talk is being given about building the WALL between Mexico and the USA, of which I approve, but I want to see another Wall built too.
I want Israel to build a MILE HIGH AND MILE DEEP WALL between Israel and the Palestinians. There already is a Wall, but let’s really get it finished.
Israel should simply tell the Europeans and other Jew Haters where to get off. Israel should take the land that Israel justifiably sees as theirs, and seal it off within the Israeli side of the wall.
Israel should connect the Palestinian West Bank by a SECURE elevated Highway to Jordan on One side, and an equally SECURE elevated Highway to Gaza on the other, and let the Jordanians and Egyptians deal with the Palestinians, and STOP feeding the Palestinians with food, water, power, medical aid and jobs . . . until the Palestinians decide to become decent Human Beings, and STOP MURDERING JEWS.
And if the Palestinians decide to attack Jews in Israel or anywhere else, Israel should respond with uncompromising strength and destruction, demonstrating the pitiless price Palestinians or anyone MUST PAY for attacking Jews.
Jews do not have to keep turning the other cheek – until we run out of cheeks.
