Next Fall

By the sweat of thy brow shall ye toil in sorrow all the days of thy life until ye beg for death.

If you commit a sin at the Kotel such as not wearing a kippa or praying too loudly, a black hat may approach you with a reprimand. If they persist, a simple “Go away” usually works and if not then yelling at them will do the trick.  They are actually pretty timid and will scatter at any sign of disturbance.  Nevertheless, the secular Jewish community is terrified of them because their children will give them a vicious side-eye and may even call them blasphemous names and this could quickly escalate to getting stoned to death in the center of the plaza.  Therefore secular Jews are going directly to the government to demand that the IDF crack down on these religious extremists who are more dangerous than ISIS.

The ultra-Orthodox men don’t work.  They study Torah all day and honestly I don’t want to know what else.  Who pays for this?  Primarily the taxpayers of Israel, in an effort to preserve the ‘Jewish character’ of the state for the sake of the Jewish diaspora and to maintain voting prominence with respect to the Arabs and Christians, and also by American Zio-fascist Christians and the Kushner family.  The recent decision by the government, under pressure by Haredi leadership, to cancel negotiations on a section for non-Orthodox at the main Wall was a huge and unforgivable betrayal by our ‘reliable partner in the Middle East’ and ‘loyal ally’.  (Not to mention, the ‘one true democracy’.)  In fact due to cult brainwashing the ultra-Orthodox despise us as ‘goys’ and literally believe that we will become their slaves when the Messiah returns.  (According to their eschatology, they have been freed from labor – the curse of mankind.)

Now the FBI is sweeping through New Jersey, arresting ultra-Orthodox government benefit scammers.  This practice was rampant and now families are pleading for mercy.  The secular Jewish community is feigning shock and outrage.  Perhaps they assumed their lavish lifestyles and numerous children were paid for by their work in the diamond industry and B&H Photo/Video.  In fact the level of vindictiveness and gloating about these arrests proves that we knew about the problem all along – yet we said nothing.  Now, we want all these people put in prison – so that they still don’t have to work and so that New York State can continue to feed and clothe their children.  (Or maybe some of us have other ideas that I don’t want to know.)

Meanwhile in Israel, thousands of Palestinian men from the occupied territories sit in jails, often getting sentences of several years for ‘stone throwing’ and for suspicious Facebook posts.  Their families are entitled to benefits from the Palestinian Authority, which is great because unemployment is very high anyway.  Kushner tried to cut them off – but this is impossible.  Too many families are dependent on this aid, and it would be impossible to police it anyway.  The absurdity peaked recently when Trump joked that they reached a deal on this issue.  If benefits are cut off then Israel must release them from prison so that they can work. Neither side is thrilled by the prospect.

US foreign aid to Israel – $4 billion per year – is greater than all other countries combined.  That number will fall sharply as a result of the Wall debacle, and this will force Israel to cut back on security services and terrorism propaganda.  Nikki Haley recently announced that UN aid to Palestine was similarly cut.  People will now be forced to – god forbid – get a job.

Liberalism/socialism is idolatry of man – Government-as-god: “We can overcome the fundamental human condition by electing a government (of humans).” However the betrayal by the ultra-Orthodox, coupled with the rising prominence of BDS, proves again that our faith in a ‘Jewish State’ was misplaced.  As 1 Samuel 8 explains:

Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us; That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.

The rejoicing and glee in the downfall of our brothers – due to dynamics that we created and enabled – is abominable.  In fact, we are our brothers’ keepers.  But we are not their jail keepers: calls for the government to ‘crack down’ on them will quickly lead to radicalization in prison if not widespread slaughter (the level of anti-Semitism in both directions is off the charts, as exemplified by recent skirmishes with the IDF in Mea Shearim).  If we really are to play G‑d faithfully, we must mete out the harshest punishment of all: work.

The Road to Utopia

People in the defense and private security industry are frightened because they think: if war and crime are resolved, then they’ll have nothing to do and will be out of a job.  While this is true, this bodes very well for the economy overall, as well as the standard of living.  Because instead of destroying people and lives and property, these people can focus on BUILDING lives and property and making people happy.  Of course there is less money in such endeavors – but that’s ok.  Because they will have a lot less to worry about and can sleep easy at night.

Bing, Bang, Bongo

I’m not sure why I’ve never written an article on the causes of terrorism, as I’m the world’s foremost expert on the subject.  But I haven’t.  I’ve written a million and a half comments on internet articles, though never extensively as a blog post.  Perhaps because I could go on forever.  I’ve written about Omar Mateen and Elliot Rodger in my blog, so maybe that’s why I didn’t feel the pressing need.

Foiled Again

Scooby Doo – where are you????

Israel is awash in foreign funding and Trump just promised to increase the budget of the Palestinian Authority even as he slashed foreign aid to all other countries.  Israel is addicted to foreign aid.  They receive about $4B a year for their ‘defense’ budget to protect them from the Palestinian ‘terrorists’ among others who are funded by the US and the UN and other countries, even as they use the money to incubate ISIS to attack Europe (and which recently apologized for accidentally attacking Israel).   Continue reading Foiled Again

Israel Will Be Fine

Israel is delegitimizing itself in a hysterical and manic witch hunt against BDS.  Enemies are everywhere and intent on its destruction.  However this paranoid and shrill campaign only serves to alienate the very people it needs to stand up for it, especially young diaspora Jews who now see it as an intolerant apartheid state like South Africa. Continue reading Israel Will Be Fine

Nukies for North Africa

OPEC oil overproduction suppresses worldwide energy prices.  It is the bane of Exxon Mobil and BP.  How to fix this problem?  Easy: incite violence in the middle east, blame it on ‘terrorism’, and then lob in the nukies.  This is the overall strategy of Trump and the Generals.  Trump complains that ‘nation building is a disaster’ while at the same time he says, “I would bomb the hell out of them.”  And the Trumpkins cheer. Continue reading Nukies for North Africa

Anti-Semitic Jews

Recently NY and CA passed bills to ban companies from dealing with BDS organizations (Boycott/Divest/Sanction Israel).  Well regardless of what you think about BDS, they were successful in forcing G4S to divest their holdings in abusive Israel prisons and youth detention facilities in Florida.  Also, G4S gave Omar Mateen a gun permit despite knowledge that the FBI was radicalizing him.  They are bad guys, and they were held to account (somewhat) by BDS.  Yet, if you are a company in CA working for the state, it is a criminal offense to have ties with BDS.  Scary stuff.  Of course, the law will get overturned by the courts (we hope), but until then, how much damage can it cause?
