We’re Days Away From Yom Kippur . . . The Jewish Day Of Atonement

WE’RE BROKE, BUSTED, AND BECOMING DOWN & OUT!
WHO AMONGST US DOES NOT HAVE TO ATONE?

Yom Kippur Starts At Sundown Sunday September 24 & Ends At Sundown September 25, 2023.

Yom Kippur Is Known As The Day Of Atonement . . . When Jews Stand Before God in Synagogues Worldwide, Confessing their (Our) Sins of the Year that is Just Ending, While Asking For Forgiveness.

Contrary To Many Beliefs, Even Amongst Jews, We do Not Ask for Forgiveness from God, Since in the Jewish Religion, There Is No Absolution From God.

WE HAVE TO PERSONALLY ACCEPT & ACKNOWLEDGE OUR SINS TO OURSELVES:

Who We Ask For Forgiveness . . . Are Those Against Whom We Have Transgressed.

TO ME . . . YOM KIPPUR IS 7-DAYS PER WEEK . . . 52-WEEKS PER YEAR:

Yom Kippur Is The End & The Beginning Of The Jewish New Year, where we Stand Before God and the Torah Scrolls (Five Books Of Moses), Reflecting Upon our Lives During the Past Year.  I Don’t Think That Much About What I Did Wrong, As Much As What I Can Do Better.

I Might Write Tomorrow . . . But I Won’t Be Writing On Yom Kippur.

IN RESPONSE TO A QUERY ON THE GALGANOV.COM OPINION PAGE:

Dick Winningstad Of Beaverton Oregon . . . Asked Me Yesterday in a Comment, if I was Advocating Abandoning Ukraine To Be Absorbed By Russia? The Answer Is No. But There is a Lot More to it Than Just the Invasion of Ukraine by Russia.

Russia & Ukraine Have been at Each Other’s Throats for Nearly a millennia. So What is Happening Now, Isn’t Something New Or Without Historical Context.

HOW DO YOU SQUARE THIS CIRCLE?

My Paternal Grandparents Were Russian Jews Living In What Is Known Today As Ukraine, who Fled Ukraine to Come to Canada in the First Decade of the 1900’s . . . Because of the Pogroms (Attacks On All Things & Persons Jewish).

To My Grandparent’s Dying Days, they Identified themselves as Russians, Even though Neither of my Father’s Parents Ever Lived a Day in Russia Proper.

IN WAR & POLITICS . . . THE FIRST CASUALTY SEEMS ALWAYS TO BE THE TRUTH:

Here Is A Truth We Cannot Afford To Ignore.

Canadian & American Seniors On Pension, who Contributed Enormously to where we were Three Years Ago (Before The Scourge Of Biden & The LEFT) . . . Aren’t Sleeping at Night. We’re Terrified of the Economy. We Think About the Cost of Living Incessantly. We Worry About Food, Gas, Lodging, Healthcare, our Children, Grandchildren and our Personal Safety . . . Amongst Many Other Worries.

WE’RE BROKE, BUSTED, AND BECOMING DOWN & OUT!

Our Countries Have Run Out Of Money.

Our Borders Are Under Siege. Our Children & Grandchildren are Being Brainwashed by our Schools. The North American Media Cannot Be Trusted. And We’re Watching Our Promise Of The Golden Years Vaporize In Front Of Us Like A Mist – That Evaporates As The Sun Rises.

I Care About What Is Happening In Ukraine. And I Feel for the Ukrainians who are Being Murdered, Crippled, Starved, Made Homeless & Dispossessed . . . But I Care More For What Is Happening Here & Now To All Of Us.

As Callous As That Might Sound . . . Charity Begins At Home.

If we Can’t Afford to Care for Ourselves, our Families, Neighbors and the People who Gave so Much for us to Have What we Earned for Ourselves Today . . . How Can We Afford To Care For Others?

I WATCHED THE NETANYAHU UNITED NATIONS SPEECH LIVE TODAY ON NEWSMAX:

Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s Prime Minister Was Brilliant, Received a Multitude of Ovations, Spoke Of A Wonderful New World, Giving Accolades to the Abraham Accords. But Unfortunately, only Giving a Touch of the Enormous Credit for the Accords, which President Trump Deserves, for Making the Abraham Accords the Reality it Has Become.

Just To Stray From Topic For A Moment (But Not Really) . . . Yesterday, I Heard the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed Bin Salman (Also Known As MBS) Shower Accolades Upon Former President Donald Trump . . . for Creating the Most Important Middle East Peace Initiative in Recent History (Abraham Accords).

If For Political Reasons . . . Netanyahu Couldn’t Hail President Trump For This Incredible Accomplishment – At Least MBS Did.

NOW GOING BACK TO THE NETANYAHU SPEECH:

Over Many Years . . . I Have Written Consistently, that if the Arabs & Jews of the Middle East would Ever be Able to Bury their Differences & Work Together, the Middle East Would Become the Most Powerful & Advanced Society on the Planet.

It’s Actually Happening. It’s Not as if Israel & Saudi Arabia are Going to Reconcile their Differences & Come Together in Peace. It’s Basically A Fait Accompli.

HERE’S AN INTERESTING CONSIDERATION:

If Peace Is Declared Between Israel & Saudi Arabia During Biden’s Presidential Term, will Biden be Given Full Credit for Something he Really Had Nothing to Do With . . . Including Being Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, Much like Obama Received the Peace Prize for Accomplishing Nothing, But Rather For WHAT Obama “Might” Do In The Future?

In The Words Of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman . . . Trump was the Man who Made it all Happen. Yet, Even Though the Most Important Arab Player in this Middle East Drama Acknowledges Trump as the Man who Made it all Happen . . . Where Was Trump’s Nobel Peace Prize? . . . Much Less A Peace Prize For Netanyahu & His 4-Arab Partners-In-Peace?

We’re Living In A Crazy World Led By Equally Crazy People – They Should All Have To Atone.

Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov

  1. I will say it then, Yea abandon Ukraine!!! Now, immediately. Ukraine broke the Minsk accords, they put in a west/WEK / CIA puppet who is still acting. There was an agreement to hold a referendum on the Donbass and southern peninsula, which most likely would have voted to be part of Russia. Billions of dollars to a pack of thieves, lives lost oh I know it’s for the greater good but whose!!!

  2. Wise words “Here is Truth We Cannot Afford to Ignore”! As Jews, we can’t concentrate on a war between Ukraine and Russia; it’s gone on for “millennia.” Ukrainians must elect good leaders who will work FOR the people. But American citizens MUST, with Canadians, concern ourselves with what’s happening now in our countries. Trump in 2024 is our answer. Trudeau needs to go so Canadians can live freely. Today Roger Simon, in The Epoch Times, writes “…Good Times Ahead” & this is go

  3. I still don’t get it hence why I became agnostic. If there is only one God, why so many religions that create wars between each other and like the famous phrase “Killing in the name of God”, if killing is one of the ten commandments, “thou shall not kill” why do religious people never follow that commandment? The Jewish population was estimated at 16 million, 0.2% of the 8 billion worldwide population, so why all this hatred for just 0.2% of the world population since the beginning of time?

  4. Netanyahu must be forgiven for not mentioning Trump.He is walking a thin line between the present Biden (Obama) administration and the next American administration, which could go either way. Sadly, he and Trump have not been on the best of terms in the last few years. Let us pray that the God of the Hebrews will see fit to have both Trump and Netanyahu in power at the same time once more and with Elon Musk as the new Rupert Murdoch equivalent. And then ,with MBS share the Nobel Peace Prize.

  5. 2 years ago, was Ukraine an independent and autonomous state? Did Ukraine commit an act of agression against Russia? Given the assumed unbounded riches under the Arctic Sea, what recourse will Canada have if and when Russia takes it? Have we squared the circle? What have I misunderstood? Chag Sameach. AEN

  6. Mr. Galganov, You said you are not advocating Russia absorb The Ukraine but there is more to it. I have to suggest that the current conditions are: Independent Ukraine is invaded by a tyrannical Russia with the goal of absorbing it into a greater Russia. International aggression at its worst. Yes they have been competitors for hundreds of years with both being independent at different times. Fact is Russia has been bad for Ukraine, 1920’s for example, and needs to be stopped.

    So Tell Me . . . How Much Should We Sacrifice For Ukraine In Unaccountable Money & Equipment? What Will You Say When We Can’t Feed Ourselves, Or Put A Roof Over Our Heads, Or Can’t Afford Healthcare Because We Gave Our Last Dollar To A Corrupt Country Called Ukraine? – HG

  7. Allen. Canada belongs to Nato. The Ukraine doesn’t. There are reasons for that. Furthermore there are lots of “ independent autonomous states “ that are not true democracies. Ukraine is one of them. Canadian and American individual rights are under attack. Let’s not lose sight of what’s going on right underneath our noses.

  8. Poland has ‘withdrawn” their support for the Ukraine/Russia WAR. If countries right next door to UKRAINE have revoked their help, then why should the USA continue. (Z) can make his pitiful requests elsewhere. America first. We need to keep our NOSE out of wars. FDR had the right idea…he refused to enter WWII until Pearl Harbor. And it cost us dearly. And all we gained is now being lost due to DEMOCRATS. Enough is Enough. TRUMP 2024.

  9. Howard, a temporayr peace will happen, because the Abrahm Accord was taken by Trump out of the Bible. It will be a temporary peace of only 7years and after 31/2 years it will be broken, by Russia and an Arab coalition, which will also include Turkey.This is the time referred to as the Tribulation period. Every thing will come to a head. I do not think it is time yet but it is getting close.

  10. Galganov vs. Winningstad I have never enjoyed your editorials more than this one. I was hoping for a response from you. You not only have common since, you have a BRILLIANT insight on this. You are fighting a battle for us all. With great appreciation I’ll close saying: VERY PROUD OF YOU MR.GALGANOV !

  11. Completely agree with your post up to a point. Any transgression (sin) is a transgression against G-d. If this is not true, then why did King David beg forgiveness from G-d and to restore the joy of thy salvation? He transgressed against Bathsheba’s husband to begin with.
