Four Mothers....

My son, the terrorist.

The 3000 Year Old Jewish Woman, Part 3 Meet Sylvia. She’s been around for 3000 years, the last 1200 of which with an enormous bunion. But does she complain? No.

JEWLARIOUS: I’m sure everyone wants to know … how has your health been over the years?
SYLVIA: Eh. I don’t like to complain, but since you asked I’ve got a bunion that’s a killer. Let me tell you walking with this bulke on my foot for 1200 years isn’t as easy as it sounds, especially during the Diaspora. Who do you think invented the sandal?
JEWLARIOUS: Really?
SYLVIA: Me and Ruchel. Oy! Her bunion was a watermelon altogether. And all we had were shoes made of tree bark. It was Ötzi the Iceman who invented shoes. That’s a fact. We Jews, however called him Frozen Fritz. Try walking on tree bark, never mind running. The only people who seemed to like it were the Dutch. Then again, what kind of meshugeners wear little boats on their head? So from Frozen Fritz’s tree bark shoes, we cut a hole for the bunions. Pretty it wasn’t because frankly, Ruchel was so near-sighted she couldn’t cut a straight line, never mind a circle with an axe, plus how big a circle and a person make? So we kept cutting until finally there was nothing left but a sole and a strap. But, it was perfect for wearing in the sand, so we called it a “sandle.” The Egyptians I think changed it.
JEWLARIOUS: So all these centuries and you’ve only had a bunion?!
SYLVIA: I also had the worst case of whoosh in the history of whoosh. I still suffer from it, but Thank God, it’s a little better now.
JEWLARIOUS: “Whoosh?” I never heard of that.
SYLVIA: It’s terrible! Terrible! I got it in Pinsk. We had a newcomer to our shtetl; a Mrs. Know-it-all. A real vilda Chaya. Anyway, we had a colossal fight and the curses flew. I said to her, “May your nose grow so much hair it strains your soup!” Would you believe, in two minutes she looked like Fu Manchu? Soshe said to me: “May you have devoted children to chase the flies off your nose!” From that day on I’ve been attracting flies like nobody’s business! Every few hours for over 100 years, my kids and I did nothing bur swat. It’s whoosh here, whoosh there! This wooshing doesn’t help your social life. Wait, you may see it first-hand soon. It not only sounds like a whoosh, it comes with a whoosh. Here’s a swatter just in case.
JEWLARIOUS: Surely it can be cured?!
SYLVIA: Listen sonny, I tried everything, believe you me. I tied twisting wool around myself and walked into the Dead Sea; I stuck my nose in a vat of Manieschewitz, which altogether wasn’t too bad, except for the slight drowning part. It was a good idea not to try this at home alone. My neighbor recommended I recite prayers like “My burden be upon me, and my burden be upon you.” Meyer, my husband at the time thought it may have ticked off Hashem a little. He suggested I find a large ant at a crossroad, put in a tube and shake. Then again, Meyer also thought God told him to circumcise chickens.
JEWLARIOUS: While we’re on the subject, of all your 587 and a half husbands you must have had many terrific ones.
SYLVIA: Two. There was Benny the Philosopher. Never made a shekel but what a thinker! Like the song, “100 Bottles of Slivovitz on the Wall.” That was his. Also, the saying, "Avoid like the plague" which was a hit with Jews during the Bubonic years. Not so much with Gentiles who noticed more of them were plotzing so they blamed us.
One of my husbands, Benny, invented the song, “100 Bottles of Slivovitz on the Wall.”
JEWLARIOUS: But we know more Jews survived because of our laws of cleanliness.
SYVIA: I know that, you know that, but in the Middle Ages? Pffft. They thought the Jews were mixed up in it – especially Benny. Magical powers, they believed he had, all because of his saying. Frankly, I always had a secret suspicion he was a master of the Kabbalah. He became a local legend. But back then, Yiddishe Kops the Gentiles had? Half the world believed there was a god for everything, water, trees, lice. In our town alone, the Gentiles erected a marble statue to Bedlamtorius the god of Bedbugs. But did they know from cleaning up? Maybe if they took a bath more than once a century instead of blaming us, they could celebrate a 21stbirthday. To this day, I couldn’t tell you whether more Jews died from the plague or the persecution, which is when Benny came up with his “All the rest is history.” When he went public with it, so much for Benny. Meanwhile, my 47thremoved grand-great nephew’s wife told me that “Avoid like the plague” is still number 10 on Google. I still remember when I spilled something, I had palpitations, which is when he came up with “Don’t cry over spilt milk.” Trust me, on two shekels a month, when you “spilt,” you cried. A mind like that but were there copyright laws? In the 1300s they couldn’t even make a law about spitting plagues on strangers.
JEWLARIOUS: But surely they had doctors then.
SYLVIA: What do they know? True, we had our geniuses. Amatus Lusitanus, who helped Pope Julius lll get rid of such a fungus you wouldn’t believe. No one would even take a wafer from him if it wasn’t for Lusitanus. But that’s another story. His office hours started 200 years later -- in 1555. May 1st I believe. I remember it well. His mama did the catering. No loshon hora, but between us, the woman couldn’t make a matzo ball that didn’t give you heartburn. You know, now that I’m thinking, maybe she was drumming up a little business for her boychick? And then of course, there was the very best: Moses Maimonides. But try to get an appointment?! He was booked solid. Nowthat’s a good doctor! For 50 years I tried for my Nathan who was my husband then, but they couldn’t squeeze him in. So my Nathan spent our marriage just screaming in pain. Thank God it didn’t hurt his career as a professional stuffer.
JEWLARIOUS: A professional stuffer? What did he stuff?
SYLVIA: He stuffed! Derma, pigeons, sofas for Sultans. His best-seller was the Cleopatra Chaise model. Saladin alone bought over 2,000. So are you finished interrupting? During the Inquisition, we Jews had two words for it: “OYtis Interruptus.”
JEWLARIOUS: Sorry, continue …
SYLVIA: Thanks to your interrupting, I’m all farshimmelt and feel a big whoosh coming on. You have the swatter?
JEWLARIOUS: Um … you know Sylvia, maybe it’s better that you swat yourself – in the hotel. And we’ll pick this up later when your condition clears up.
SYLVIA: Ok, but make sure you take care of your condition. Then I’ll tell you out how my Nathan made us a little rich. Meanwhile, I’m going. Three thousand years of Oytis Interruptus is enough for any Jew.

Senior RCA Rabbi Calls To Expel Arabs From Israel - FailedMessiah.com

Rabbi Steven Pruzansky – the senior rabbi of Teaneck, New Jersey’s largest Modern Orthodox synagogue, Congregation Bnai Yeshurun, and senior member of the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA) – has called for Israel to use collective punishment against Israeli Arabs and West Bank Palestinians until these non-Jews realize “they have no future in the land of Israel.”

In a blog post titled “Dealing with Savages,” Pruzansky call for the destruction of Palestinian villages and towns and the destruction of the Dome of the Rock Muslim shrine on the Temple Mount.

Pruzansky couched the conflict between Jews and Arabs as a religious war being fought for the Land of Israel. Arabs living within the borders of the Land of Israel are all therefore Israel’s enemies, Pruzansky insisted.

“There is a war for the land of Israel that is being waged, and the Arabs who dwell in the land of Israel are the enemy in that war and must be vanquished,” Pruzansky wrote,later adding “that enemy rides our buses, shops in our malls, drives on our roads and lives just two miles from us.”

“The Arab-Muslim animals that span the globe chopping, hacking and merrily decapitating…At a certain point, the unrestrained behavior of unruly animals becomes the fault of the zookeeper [i.e., Israel], not the animals,” Pruzansky added.

Pruzansky went on to argue that Israel should destroy entire Arab villages if more than one terrorist lives there, and every resident of those villages should be expelled.

He argued that Arab – but not Jewish – rioters  should be shot with live ammunition.

To avoid international condemnation, Pruzansky insisted that reporters should be barred from covering these riots or the destruction of Arab villages and the expulsion of their residents. Those reporters who are on scene anyway should have their cameras confiscated.

Pruzansky also argues that all Arabs should be barred from the Temple Mount for a minimum of six months.
…Israel should make clear that a Palestinian state will never be created between the river and the sea. There will be no non-Jewish national entity tolerated. The Muqata in Ramallah should be destroyed and “President” Abbas should be incarcerated as a war criminal.
Terrorists will be killed, not captured (no great loss, as their fondest wish is for martyrdom). Their bodies will not be returned to their families but will be cremated, and perhaps the ashes buried with deceased pigs. The homes of the extended family (up to and including first cousins) of the terrorist will be destroyed, and they will all be deported to the Muslim country of their choice. A second terrorist in a village results in the destruction of that village and the deportation of its residents to a friendlier country. (If the homes in that village would be useful to Jews, then they should be retained and given to Jews after the evil residents are deported. Or, as they used to say in Israel, disengaged.)
Anyone who riots or throws a stone at a Jew should be shot – with real bullets. Rubber bullets and tear gas should be sold to the Amish. Those who wish to be martyred and who celebrate death should be accommodated as often as possible. The media should be barred from scenes of violence, cell service canceled and cameras confiscated, like in most war zones.
In the meantime, Arab access to the Temple Mount will be denied for at least six months, and Jewish prayer will be allowed thenceforth at permissible locations, such as they might be. It is unconscionable crime to deny Jews the right to move their lips on the Temple Mount! And those who refrain from ascending the Mount for halachic reasons will surely agree that if Jews cannot be there, certainly Muslims cannot be there. And perhaps the day will come in the near future when the mosque and the dome can be uplifted intact and reset in Saudi Arabia, Syria or wherever it is wanted. (The Arab countries can fight over it if they want.) That itself will preclude any Arab claim to Jerusalem.
The same restrictions and limitations would pertain to the Cave of Machpelah in Hevron. Any terror emanating from Hevron results in closure of the facility to Muslims. In fact, we should apply to Muslim holy places the exact same respect and deference they have shown to Jewish, Christian, Buddhist and Hindu holy sites across the world. That seems only fair.…
Pruzansky deleted his post, but over the weekend a reader sent a link to a Google cache of it to various media organizations, including FailedMessiah.com.

Pruzansky has previously blamed Orthodox Jewish feminists for the Orthodox community’s alleged overreaction to his friend’s, Rabbi Barry Freundel’s, alleged peeping and secret video-recording of naked women in the mikvah (ritual bath) Freundel controlled.

Pruzansky also previous equated the New York-based Jewish Week newspaper with he Nazi propaganda organ Der Sturmer and the Jewish Week’s editor-publisher Gary Rosenblatt with Der Sturmer’s editor Julius Streicher, and has made many other equally offensive statements in his writings and talks over many years.

Even so, neither the RCA, its effective parent the Orthodox Union (OU), or Pruzansky’s Bnai Yeshurun synagogue have ever disciplined him.

Will food manufacturers whose products carry an OU seal allow that seal to continue to appear if Pruzansky is still a member of the RCA and his synagogue a member of the OU? Many would now argue they should not – unless Bnai Yeshurun fires Pruzansky and the RCA strips him of membership.

Here is Pruzansky’s now-deleted post in full:
Dealing with Savages
Posted on November 21, 2014 | 2 Comments

How does a human being (or two) walk into a synagogue and begin hacking at worshippers who are immersed in prayer, leaving behind a trail of blood, victims, grief and horror?

The question is misplaced because no “human being” could do such a thing. It would have to be a beast in human form, a relic from primitive times before true humans became civilized. The Arab-Muslim animals that span the globe chopping, hacking and merrily decapitating – from Iraq to Jerusalem to New York to Oklahoma, and places in between and beyond – are a discredit even to the term “animal.” Most animals are not that brutal.

The real issue confronting Israel for decades and the civilized world today is what to do about the proliferation of savages who lust for blood and derive inspiration from their religious texts? One example not to follow is that of President Obama’s. In one of his more ludicrous statements in the last few months – amid a healthy competition – he decried the attack, the loss of life “on both sides (!),” and then added this gem: that the “overwhelming majority of Palestinians…want to live in peace.” Really? And based on what data was that determination made? That only tens of thousands of “Palestinians” rejoiced after the massacre, singing and dancing in the streets, distributing candies and sweets, praising the vicious slaughter and the slaughterers – and not hundreds of thousands? Polls in the PA reveal widespread support for the murder of Jews so what exactly is he talking about??

Obama seems to be as much an expert on “Palestinian” society as he is about Islam generally. His incessant protestation that ISIS distorts Islam is based on…what exactly? ISIS and sundry other radical groups seem to feel that they are fulfilling the dictates of Islam – and the few Muslims who disagree meet their fate at the business end of a machete. Actions speak louder than words. Obama’s expertise in Islam has led him to cede the Middle East to the most ruthless forces, embrace the radical Muslim Turk Erdogan as an American ally, and facilitate Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. Perhaps with a nuclear weapon, Iran will be civilized, or so the thinking goes.

Little can or should be expected from Obama or from the Europeans, mired as they are in cultural deterioration, moral relativism, population decline and Muslim-inspired Jew hatred. Sweden just became the latest country to recognize “Palestine.” Sweden (!), which willfully encourages those who favor the shechita of Jews even as they themselves ban the shechita (ritual slaughter) of animals. How is that for misplaced priorities and corrupt values? And we should be clear, as the wave of recognition sweeps Europe in the coming year: any country that recognizes a “Palestine” is endorsing the mass slaughter of Jews.

But Israel has to act, especially as the violence has spiraled out of control. The dynamic needs to change, dramatically. At a certain point, the unrestrained behavior of unruly animals becomes the fault of the zookeeper, not the animals. What can be done?

Clearly, many things can be done that should not be in print, but the general approach needs to be the abandonment of defensive, reactive moves and an embrace of offensive, anticipatory, and proactive moves. The Arabs need to feel that they are paying a heavy price for murdering Jews. Right now, not only do they not pay a heavy price but the murderers and their families benefit. Here are some suggestions to change the dynamic, and they are all based on a single premise: that there is a war  for the land of Israel that is being waged, and the Arabs who dwell in the land of Israel are the enemy in that war and must be vanquished.

Israel should make clear that a Palestinian state will never be created between the river and the sea. There will be no non-Jewish national entity tolerated. The Muqata in Ramallah should be destroyed and “President” Abbas should be incarcerated as a war criminal.

Terrorists will be killed, not captured (no great loss, as their fondest wish is for martyrdom). Their bodies will not be returned to their families but will be cremated, and perhaps the ashes buried with deceased pigs. The homes of the extended family (up to and including first cousins) of the terrorist will be destroyed, and they will all be deported to the Muslim country of their choice. A second terrorist in a village results in the destruction of that village and the deportation of its residents to a friendlier country. (If the homes in that village would be useful to Jews, then they should be retained and given to Jews after the evil residents are deported. Or, as they used to say in Israel, disengaged.)

Anyone who riots or throws a stone at a Jew should be shot – with real bullets. Rubber bullets and tear gas should be sold to the Amish. Those who wish to be martyred and who celebrate death should be accommodated as often as possible. The media should be barred from scenes of violence, cell service canceled and cameras confiscated, like in most war zones.

In the meantime, Arab access to the Temple Mount will be denied for at least six months, and Jewish prayer will be allowed thenceforth at permissible locations, such as they might be. It is unconscionable crime to deny Jews the right to move their lips on the Temple Mount! And those who refrain from ascending the Mount for halachic reasons will surely agree that if Jews cannot be there, certainly Muslims cannot be there. And perhaps the day will come in the near future when the mosque and the dome can be uplifted intact and reset in Saudi Arabia, Syria or wherever it is wanted. (The Arab countries can fight over it if they want.) That itself will preclude any Arab claim to Jerusalem.

The same restrictions and limitations would pertain to the Cave of Machpelah in Hevron. Any terror emanating from Hevron results in closure of the facility to Muslims. In fact, we should apply to Muslim holy places the exact same respect and deference they have shown to Jewish, Christian, Buddhist and Hindu holy sites across the world. That seems only fair.

As noted here in the past, measures need to be implemented that encourage Arab emigration – the payment of stipends, compensation for property, etc. Thy must be made to feel that that they have no future in the land of Israel – no national future and no individual future. Start with the Arabs of Judea and Samaria who are stateless; they deserve to find a country in which they can be full citizens and make their contribution to society. Let them demonstrate in an Arab country their dexterity with bombs and their grace with machetes. (If Israeli Arabs persist in their support of terror – now at a low level, but who can predict the future? – they should forfeit their citizenship and be returned to military rule as it was before 1966.) Of course, those who wish to stay and be peaceful, acknowledging the sovereignty of the Jewish people in the land of Israel, are welcome to stay. But an enemy is an enemy – and one who wants to kill you, maim you, blow up your buses, trains and restaurants, run over your pedestrians and conquer your capital is an enemy, and a ruthless one at that. Why so many Israelis do not perceive that is an enduring enigma, an enigma that has enabled the relentless slaughter of Jews.

There are other measures as well but here is the problem: not a single method above will be enacted. That is why right now there is absolutely no deterrent to the murder and maiming of Jews. Indeed, it is exactly the opposite. The slaughter of Jews is incentivized in Arab society. Often the terrorist is killed (martyrdom and virgins), lionized and immortalized with the naming after him of streets, schools and camps (eternity), and his family receives a monthly pension of thousands of dollars to compensate for his lost earnings (financial reward). Under those circumstances, and given the primitive culture in which they are raised, it is an irrational act not to want to murder Jews.

That is the dynamic that has to change.

Yet, despite everything, much of Israeli society still clings to the illusion that “peace” is possible with these savages, or at least that someone, somewhere, sometime, will sign a peace treaty with them. That illusion is slowly receding, but it is still abetted by the elites of Israeli society, especially because it is being propounded and pushed by Western governments like the US and in the European Union. There is no more deadly illusion on the planet, except for construing ISIS as a cold summer treat enjoyed by children.

Rational thinkers will argue that the “world” will never tolerate such Draconian sanctions, that countries will sever diplomatic relations with Israel, cut off trade ties and completely isolate the Jewish state. And, in the short term, much of that is true. But is there an alternative short of national suicide and self-immolation? Israel has much to offer the world, without which many people in the world would suffer, that such alienation will be short-lived. And Israel’s pivot to Asia (much more successful than Obama’s clumsy and failed one) has allowed Israel to strike close relations with the two largest nations on the globe, China and India. Neither country is moved in its foreign affairs by a moral impulse and both countries are anxious for military ties with Israel. And do not overestimate the popularity of the Palestinians in the rest of the world; truth be told, they are reviled even in the Arab world, perhaps even more than in Europe.

We should not ignore as well the rank hypocrisy that promotes the double standard that cripples Israel’s ability to defend itself. Case in point: this week, Egypt evicted thousands of Arabs along the Gaza border and destroyed hundreds of their homes for “security reasons.” No courts, no appeals, no process. Some of the homes were being used to conceal tunnels, so they all had to go.

Moral? Not in normal times, but Egypt recognizes it is at war with a heartless enemy, and that enemy and its population deserve no accommodation. Even Jen Psaki found no fault in Egypt’s actions, the phony.

If only Jews would realize the same and stop fantasizing about convincing that enemy of our own goodness. Here is one exercise that should help: the same enemy that lynched soldiers in Ramallah and tore them apart is the same enemy that butchered holy Jews this week in Har Nof is the same enemy that kidnapped and murdered three precious boys just a few months ago.

It’s the same enemy. And that enemy rides our buses, shops in our malls, drives on our roads and lives just two miles from us. The same enemy.

Do you know where that enemy is, and what he is plotting right now?

Change the dynamic. Change the terms of the debate. Change the rules of war. And change the outcome that the enemy now anticipates. Such will save Jewish lives and even bring redemption.

Elder Of Ziyon - Israel News: Deprived Arab boy complains he cannot play soccer on Temple Mount every day

This is not a joke.


Hona Al Quds has an article about poor Mohamed Ghalib Laban, who lives in Jerusalem. 

12-year old Ban likes to go with his friends to play soccer every day at his local playground, which happens to be the Temple Mount. But on some days the evil Jewish settlers come, protected by police, and he is not allowed to play, saying "Occupation police stopped us from bringing the ball when the settlers invaded, because the little ball frightened them."

The title of the article is "Mohamed Laban deprived of playing in Al Aqsa."

If it wasn't for those damn Jews who keep desecrating the Al Aqsa Mosque, young Mohamed would be able to play all he wants. 

If that's not a reason for attacking the storming Jews with axes and cleavers, I don't know what is.


I imagine that Human Rights Watch will issue a 85 page report on this violation of international humanitarian law any day now.

(UPDATE: Fixed boy's name and translation, h/t Racquel)

Elder Of Ziyon - Israel News: Latest photos of evil settler colonizer Jews storming Al Aqsa Mosque, or something like that

Here are yesterday's "stormers:"

How dare these Jews desecrate the shrine by walking around!

Muslims, however, know how to treat the holy site with respect, as this photo from Friday shows:


How dare the Jews desecrate the holiest Muslim playground in the world?

Elder Of Ziyon - Israel News: Disgusting video characterizes Abu Khdeir murder as a Jewish blood ritual

A new Palestinian Arab cartoon video from "The Jerusalem Foundation"  says that Jews killed Mohammed Abu Khdair last summer as part of a religious Jewish ritual.

As it shows an image of Jews with hats and peyot dancing around the burning body of Abu Khdeir, the narrator says "The murderers celebrated their Talmudic rituals, seeing the child's burning to death."

The murderers of Abu Khdeir were not religious Jews by any stretch..



This is yet another Arab blood libel, and it is clearly being brought up now as more and more Arabs are trying to incite a religious war against Jews.

What will it take for the West, and human rights groups in particular, to clearly condemn this explicit incitement against Jews? Human Rights Watch and Amnesty both pretend to be against antisemitism and against incitement to violence - but they refuse to say a word against Arab and Muslim incitement to kill Jews.

It isn't as if this is a theoretical problem - Jews are being killed, now, because of this incitement that can be seen every day in Arabic language news and social media. The recent attacks are a direct result of this new wave of anti-Jewish incitement.

The silence of these groups is damning, and it shows beyond any doubt that their interest in human rights does not extend to Israeli Jews.

Israel Matzav: Shimon Peres compares 'Palestinians' to Nazis

Yes, he did.

But first, let's go to the videotape.



Yes, that's the entry hallway to the synagogue, right outside the study hall where last Tuesday's terror attack took place. But Peres apparently made his statement while visiting the mourners
"My grandfather, Tzvi Meltzer, was murdered in a synagogue by Nazis as he was wrapped in a prayer shawl just for being a Jew," related Peres. "Today too, our people are united under faith against all murder and terror. The memory of your loved ones will be blessed."
Peres was accompanied by Rabbi David Yosef, Sheikh Kablan of the Israeli Druze community, Ali Saeed of the Bedouin community and Abu Ghosh mayor Salim Jaber.

The Proper Response To J Street after it's sickening response to the Har Nof Massacre

When I was a little girl, sometimes I wanted things I could not have. Candy before dinner, for instance. And no matter how much I wanted it, my mother said no.
Still, I never walked into a synagogue and hacked anyone to death with a meat cleaver.
According to J Street however, if I had, my mother’s denial to grant me my wish would have, by all accounts, been a contributory factor. By the same token, J Street would have us believe that you don’t have to think it’s a good idea for a little girl to spoil her appetite with candy in order to see that my mother went WAY too far saying no to me.
Of course, my mother and I are just stuck. I’ve been demanding that candy for too long, my mother saying no for too long, for either of us to see the other’s side.
J Street's immediate response after the Har Nof Massacre was to quote Boston Globe reporter Michael Cohen
J Street’s immediate response following the Har Nof Massacre was this quote from Boston Globe reporter Michael Cohen (The Mike Report)
Imagine a rape, if you will. Is it an act of aggression? Or is it the victim’s fault for wearing tight or revealing clothing?
According to J Street, the rapist cannot be excused for his actions. At the same time, we can understand how his lust got the better of him as he watched beautiful young girls walking by him, for years on end. Anyone would snap.
By the same token, the victim should understand that if she is going to be beautiful, someone will desire her. If she would just offer herself to the rapist, he wouldn’t have to force himself on her.
But both sides are still stuck in their own, self-centered ideologies. The rape victim can only think that she doesn’t want to be raped. While the rapist can only rape.
No wonder that rape continues. Until both sides are ready to compromise, more of the same is to be expected.

Turn The Other Cheek

According to Jeremy Ben Ami, founder and president of J Street, there is a proper and an improper response to the massacre. The proper response is to give way to violence and simply turn the other cheek.
The improper response is to respond.
The solution is to “end the conflict.”
What he means rephrased: the solution is for Israel to give in to all the demands of the enemy. The solution is to give the rapists everything they want. Because if you freely give them what they want, it changes these acts from rape to consensual sex. It redefines rape and makes it okay. And then everyone lives happily ever after.

Punitive Demolitions

What are we really talking about here? We are talking about Prime Minister Netanyahu’s decision to bring back the punitive measure of destroying the homes of terrorists’ family members.
This is meant to serve as a deterrent to future acts of terror. It is hoped terrorists will think twice before walking into a Jerusalem shul and hacking rabbis to death with meat cleavers if they know their families will lose their homes.
Ben Ami calls the demolitions a “human rights violation” and “collective punishment.”
Technically, he’s right. Why should innocent people lose their homes because of something their sons/brothers/siblings did?

Rich Rewards

But what can you do to stop people who are eager to die for all the wonderful sex they are told they will have if they will only hack Jews to death with meat cleavers? What can you do to stop terrorists if they know their families will be entitled, after they the terrorists are imprisoned or killed, to significant financial awards, to monthly stipends underwritten by the U.S. and the EU?
You have to hit the families hard enough that the monies they receive will not cover the debts incurred. Housing is expensive. The generous monthly stipend allotted to the families of terrorists will not pay for the construction of new homes.
Even Jeremy Ben Ami submits that terror calls for a response. According to the Israeli Prime Minister, the proper response is one that serves as a deterrent to future violence.
Ben Ami speaks of “due process.” But the terrorists who perpetrated the Har Nof Massacre are dead. There can be no due process when the perpetrators are dead. The dead cannot be judged by a jury of their peers.
And in fact, the dead terrorists are lionized, held up as heroes, as symbols. The deeds that killed them serve as an example: serve to inspire other young Arabs to emulate them and do the same.
Screen grab Channel 10, via Times of Israel
Jordanian Parliament observes moment of silence for perpetrators of the Har Nof Massacre (Screen grab Channel 10, via Times of Israel)
Ben Ami would have us go beyond the monetary benefits afforded the families of terror victims. He would have us give in to all Arab demands. He would have us give up Esau’s birthright for a bowl of lentil stew. He would have us be nine miles wide at our waistline and subject to rocket attacks from inside of Judea and Samaria.
He would dissolve the State of Israel, because like the rape victim, it’s just too attractive to the rapist.
Rape happens because rape victims are sexy.
Israel is a bad idea, because it brings strife.
There are certain defining moments in the history of my nation that I wish had never happened. Disengagement, for instance. 8,500 Jews expelled from their homes by Jews. The homes destroyed, the territory given to the enemy as a gesture of peace, to offer them a chance to engage in statecraft.
And now? Disengagement is something we can point to whenever anyone suggests we give up Judea and Samaria. It’s been nine years since Disengagement. Nine years and over 11,000 rockets.
Every one of us knows what would happen if we gave the Arabs Judea and Samaria.
Oslo was another defining moment. Peres and company brought Arafat over from Tunisia. They said, “You don’t make peace with a friend, you make peace with an enemy.”

Bringing Terror Into The Tent

So we brought this terrorist to live among us, we brought him into the tent and he ran true to form, as terrorists will, and fomented the Second Intifada. He killed us from within instead of from without, from a distance. We gave him every advantage.
And we learned:
Negotiate with terrorists, get bloodshed.
The Har Nof Massacre was yet another defining moment in a history of defining moments for my people. The pogrom in Har Nof tells us that the “conflict” has nothing to do with contested territory, a homeland for a displaced people, or self-determination. It tells us that the conflict is a not a conflict, but a war against the Jews.

A Pogrom

Because as it turns out, a pogrom is still a pogrom.
You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. Jew-hatred smells the same no matter how much you douse it with cologne.
We can point to Disengagement, which should never have happened, to prove that given resources, Arabs will not carve out lives for themselves, but will strive to kill Jews and more Jews.
We can point to Oslo, which should never have happened, to prove that making nice to terrorists and inviting them into our tent, brings death to our people.
We can point to the Har Nof Massacre, which should never have happened, to prove thatEsau hates Jacob.

Pretty Colors

Paint the “conflict” with pretty colors called “homeland” and “self-determination” but the rose will continue to fester and stink with Jew-hatred. Boil it down, distill the essence, and you still get Kill the Jews.
Point to the Har Nof Massacre, to Disengagement, to Oslo, and expose the truth. But the lie is louder still, a relief to the masses.
The lie will always be louder.
J Street is loud. Louder than say, The J Street Challenge. The Jewish Federation of Seattle helped sponsor an event featuring Peter Beinart, a pro-BDS activist who claims, just like JStreet, to be pro-Israel. The Jewish Federation of Seattle refused to help sponsor a screening of The J Street Challenge, which is a critical examination of J Street’s ideology. The Washington Coalition of Rabbis (WCR) condemned the screening.

The Scorpion And The Camel

J Street is like the old joke with the scorpion, wanting a ride on a camel’s back to get across the river. The camel says, “If I give you a ride, you’ll sting me and I’ll die.”
The scorpion says, “Would I do that? Trust me. Wouldn’t happen.”
The camel is persuaded, gives the scorpion a ride across the river and as they reach the half-point in their journey, the scorpion stings the camel.
The camel says, “Why did you sting me? Now we’ll both drown!”
To which the scorpion replies, “This is, after all, the Middle East.”

J Street Wants In

J Street wants Israel to die. J Street doesn’t care who it takes down in the process. This is why J Street fights so hard to get inside the tent. It wants the Jewish State to disappear. It wantsthose Jews gone.
J Street wants the rape victim silenced. J Street feels no sympathy for the victims of the Har Nof Massacre, or their families. It is J Street’s nature to worm its way into our culture and kill us from within with its poisonous sting.
J Street lures us with promises of peace and harmony. It lulls us into thinking we will be safe if we give in to the rapist/terrorist. It tells us that we need to see beyond our own selfish will to live, to die for the sake of the other.
J Street is Arafat brought over from Tunisia by Peres. J Street is the expulsion of 8,500 Jews from their homes by Sharon. J Street is the Har Nof Pogrom that never had anything to do with land or self-determination, or sides in a conflict.
J Street is death.
Choose life.

Bret Stephens: Iran Cheats, Obama Whitewashes The administration thinks a nuclear Iran is inevitable—but lacks the courage to say it.

Does it matter what sort of deal—or further extension, or non-deal—ultimately emerges from the endless parleys over Iran’s nuclear program? Probably not. Iran came to the table cheating on its nuclear commitments. It continued to cheat on them throughout the interim agreement it agreed to last year. And it will cheat on any undertakings it signs.
We knew this, know it and will come to know it all over again. But what’s at stake in these negotiations isn’t their outcome, assuming there ever is an outcome. It’s the extent to which the outcome facilitates, or obstructs, our willingness to continue to fool ourselves about the consequences of an Iran with a nuclear weapon.
The latest confirmation of the obvious comes to us courtesy of a Nov. 17 report from David Albright and his team at the scrupulously nonpartisan Institute for Science and International Security. The ISIS study, based on findings from the International Atomic Energy Agency, concluded that Iran was stonewalling U.N. inspectors on the military dimensions of its program. It noted that Tehran had tested a model for an advanced centrifuge, in violation of the 2013 interim agreement. And it cited Iran for trying to conceal evidence of nuclear-weapons development at a military facility called Parchin.
“By failing to address the IAEA’s concerns, Iran is complicating, and even threatening, the achievement of a long term nuclear deal,” the report notes dryly.
These are only Iran’s most recent evasions, piled atop two decades of documented nuclear deception. Nothing new there. But what are we to make of an American administration that is intent on providing cover for Iran’s coverups? “The IAEA has verified that Iran has complied with its commitments,” Wendy Sherman, the top U.S. nuclear negotiator, testified in July to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “It has done what it promised to do.” John Kerry went one better, telling reporters Monday that “Iran has lived up” to its commitments.
The statement is false: Yukiya Amano, the director general of the IAEA, complained last week that Iran had “not provided any explanations that enable the Agency to clarify the outstanding practical measures” related to suspected work on weaponization. Since when did trust but verify become whitewash and hornswoggle?
That’s a question someone ought to ask Mr. Kerry or Ms. Sherman at their next committee appearance, especially since it has become clear that the administration has a record of arms-control dissembling. To wit, the State Department under Hillary Clintonhad reason to know that Russia—with which the U.S. was then in “reset” mode—was violating the 1987 treaty on Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces. Yet it didn’t disclose this in arms-control reports to Congress, nor did it mention the fact prior to the Senate’s 2010 ratification of the New Start treaty on strategic weapons.
“We’re not going to pass another treaty in the U.S. Senate if our colleagues [in the administration] are sitting up there knowing somebody is cheating.” That was then-Sen. John Kerry in November 2012, complaining about the coverup. The administration only came clean about the Kremlin’s breaches last summer, presumably after it had finally given up hopes for its Russian reset.
Why the spin and dishonesty? Partly it’s the old Platonic conceit of the Noble Lie—public bamboozlement in the service of the greater good—that propels so much contemporary liberal policy-making (cf. Gruber, Jonathan: transparency, lack of). So long as the higher goal is a health-care bill, or arms control with Russia, or a nuclear deal with Iran, why should the low truth of facts and figures interfere with the high truth of hopes and ideals?
But this lets the administration off too easily. The real problem is cowardice. As a matter of politics it cannot acknowledge what, privately, it believes: that a nuclear Iran is undesirable but probably inevitable and hardly catastrophic. As a matter of strategy, it refuses to commit to the only realistic course of action that could accomplish the goal it professes to seek: The elimination of Iran’s nuclear capabilities by a combination of genuinely crippling sanctions and targeted military strikes.
And so—because the administration lacks the political courage of its real convictions or the martial courage of its fake ones—we are wedded to this sham process of negotiation. “They pretend to pay us; we pretend to work,” went the old joke about labor in the Soviet Union. Just so with these talks. Iranians pretend not to cheat; we pretend not to notice. All that’s left to do is stand back and wait for something to happen.
Eventually, something will happen. Perhaps Iran will simply walk away from the talks, daring this feckless administration to act. Perhaps we will discover another undeclared Iranian nuclear facility, possibly not in Iran itself. Perhaps the Israelis really will act. Perhaps the Saudis will.
All of this may suit the president’s psychological yearning to turn himself into a bystander—innocent, in his own eyes—in the Iranian nuclear crisis. But it’s also a useful reminder that, in the contest between hard-won experience and disappointed idealism, the latter always wins in the liberal mind.

Yehudah Glick says his would-be assassin disgraced Islam, while Muslim doctors give respect to their religion

Yehudah Glick and his wife at a press conference at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem on November 24, 2014.
Yehudah Glick, the Temple Mount activist shot in a failed assassination attempt, left the hospital nearly a month after the attack.
At a news conference Monday at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Glick thanked those who helped to save his life and recited the blessing thanking God as “He who brings back life to the deceased.”
Glick, 49, said that his attacker told him before he pulled the trigger on October 29 outside a Jerusalem conference center that he was doing it because Glick is “an enemy of al-Aqsa,” the Temple Mount mosque.
“Anybody who shoots and kills someone in the name of his religion is the first person disgracing his religion,” Glick said.
“Those who are giving respect to Islam are those Muslim doctors and nurses who work at this hospital, helping people after they have signed the Hippocratic Oath. These are the people who are bringing respect to God and their religion, not those who murder in the name of religion.”
Glick was shot at close range in the chest and abdomen by an assailant who fled on a motorcycle. The alleged assailant, a member of Islamic Jihad who worked in the conference center’s kitchen, was killed hours later in a shootout outside his eastern Jerusalem home.
Immediately before he was shot, Glick had spoken at the center on the Jewish right to pray on the Temple Mount.
