I STOOD IN A TWO-STORY WALK-UP & TOOK THE OATH . . . NEVER AGAIN!
I Was 18-Years Old In 1968, Standing In A Dingy Second Story Apartment On Decarie Boulevard.
I Was By Myself . . . With the Exception of Two Older Men in the Somewhat Dimly Lighted Room in Montreal, with Two Very Tough-Looking People of my Age, who Stood at a Distance on the Lower Staircase on the First Floor Landing.
I Was Asked By The Older Men, if I Really Knew What I was Going to be Committing-To, and What the Consequences Could-Be? I Said Yes.
I Was Then Handed A Menorah (Religious Jewish Candelabra) . . . While I Was Asked These Simple Words – Do You Swear To Take An Oath Of NEVER AGAIN To A Second Holocaust Or Any Attack On The Jewish People?
This Was In The Nascent Days Of The Jewish Defense League, as Anti-Semitism in Places Like New York City & Montreal was Becoming a Growing Issue, as Young Jews (High School Students) were Beaten-Up on their Way to or from School, Often with Young Jewish Girls Being Fondled or Worse.
I Was Never Really Threatened As A Jew . . . Not to Suggest that I was Never Subjected to Anti-Semitic Slurs or Perhaps Lost Opportunities . . . Not to the Point of Needing Special Protection.
However . . . As Jewish Teenagers were Being Assaulted on a Regular Basis in Midtown Montreal, the Official Response from the Montreal Police was . . . “Pas Grand Chose” (No Big Deal), which Helped to Convince People like Me to Join the JDL (Jewish Defense League).
I and a Handful of Others Learned Martial Arts (Karate) and Israeli-Style Hand to Hand Combat (Krav Maga), Plus to Use Whatever was Within Reach that we could Wield as a Weapon. We Didn’t Train To Score Points On Style.
THEY HATED US . . .
The Police Hated-Us. The Media Called us Thugs. Mainstream Jewish Organizations Called us Jewish Nazis and an Embarrassment to the Greater Jewish Public.
As the Attacks Continued, and were even Being Ramped-Up Against Jewish High School Students & Religious Jewish Educational Institutions (Yeshivahs) . . . Guess Who Those Jewish Organizations Eventually Turned-To For Redress?
The Police Were Doing Nothing. The Media Turned a Blind Eye. And the Mainstream Jewish Community Kept Writing Letters to the Editor and to their Members of Government . . . As The Jewish Abuse Went Unabated.
We Were Trained To Win . . . No Matter How – And to Make the Painful Consequences Well Known to Others who Also Wished us Harm.
It Took Several Confrontations Where The Anti-Semites Were Left Plenty Bloodied, which Created News Headlines that Painted the JDL as Brutes, Beasts & Thugs. But Guess What? After just a Few Violent Confrontations Between us and them . . . The Anti-Semitic Attacks Came To A Sudden & Crashing Halt.
I Don’t Care If People Don’t Like Me Because I’m Jewish – As Long as No-One Touches Me, Mine or Others Because I’m Jewish or They’re Jewish.
ISRAEL WON EVERY WAR IT FOUGHT . . . BUT NEVER HAD A VICTORY:
Every-Time Israel Went To War, Even The 6-Day War (1967), where Israel Decimated the Combined Armies & Air-Forces of Israel’s Enemies . . . The Losers Were Never Required To Surrender.
The WWI Germans Had To Surrender. The WWII Germans Had To Surrender. The WWII Japanese Had To Surrender . . . But None Of The Nations Of The Arab Armies Who Lost To Israel Ever Had To Surrender . . . Why Not?
Why did all the Supposed Friends of Israel Press Israel Into Pulling-Back Once Israel Got the Upper-Hand? Even the Iraqi’s were Forced to Sign a Formal Declaration of Surrender to the Americans.
IT’S TIME FOR ISRAEL TO HAVE A REAL VICTORY:
It’s Time For Israel To Crush Israel’s Enemy In A Way That Changes The Dynamic Completely.
MAKE GAZA UNLIVABLE!
Yesterday I Wrote . . . Israel Has To Turn Gaza Into A Parking Lot.
In all Reality, Especially After this Unwarranted & Unprovoked Bestial Attack by Savage Palestinians on the Jewish People . . . Nothing Short Of An All-Out Expulsion Of These Gaza Animals Will Suffice.
Israel Can Give The Gazans A Choice Which The Gaza Butchers Didn’t Give The Jews Of Israel.
LEAVE ON YOUR OWN VOLITION OR DIE STAYING:
As a Matter of Fact, any Arab Claiming to be a Palestinian Living in Israel who Advocates Death to Israel or Death to Jews, They Too Can Pack-Up & Get The Hell Out Of Israel . . .
For all of Israel as Far as I’m Concerned, There Is Only A One State Solution For This Region . . . from the Golan Heights/Jordan on One Side – from Lebanon/Syria on the Other Side, as Far to the South as Egypt, and all of it Along the Shoreline of the Mediterranean is Israel . . . Which Should End The Fantasy Of The Arabs Who Call Themselves Palestinians.
For Arabs Wishing To Remain In Israel . . . Live Civilized Like The Israelis As A Free People.
DON’T BELIEVE BIDEN . . . ISRAEL DOES NOT HAVE HIS SUPPORT!
The Biden Rhetoric Sounds Great – But Remember This . . . Biden is Not Stopping Iran from Becoming Nuclear. Biden has Also Helped the Iranians to Rake-In Many Tens of Billions of Dollars, which the Iranians use to Finance Hamas & Hezbollah.
The Imbecile-In-Chief Will Love Israel Until Someone Whispers In His Ear To Stop Loving Israel.
Furthermore . . . Biden Has Made a Huge Public Show of Treating Israel through Benjamin Netanyahu as if Netanyahu & Netanyahu’s Government are a Political Contagion. And Don’t Forget What Biden Had Already Done To The Afghans.
IT’S TIME FOR ISRAEL TO DO WHAT ISRAEL HAS TO DO:
The Time Has Long Passed For Israel To NOT Give A Damn What The Rest Of The World Thinks.
