Once and for All



Yitzchak  
Ginsburgh

Under the pretext of a “chosen people and promised land”:

They have invaded and colonized Palestine for decades, they have imposed on Palestinians abject racist laws inspired by supremacist ideology, causing and continue to cause unimaginable suffering to indigenous Palestinians for many generation.

They have caused the destruction of 531 (five hundred and thirty one) Biblical villages of World Heritage and still continue their destruction.

They have ethnically cleansed more than 70% of native Palestinians, throwing them into the cruelty of refugee camps or the Chilliness of Diaspora.

Under the pretext of “security” and “war on terror”:

They have promoted Islamophobia and through their media outlet continued to incite hatred, fear and suspicion against Islam and against its almost two billion adherent Muslims.

They have designed the war on Afghanistan causing millions of some of the poorest nations on Earth to suffer for more than a decade.

They have pushed for the war on Iraq, and have already succeeded in destroying one of the world oldest civilizations.

Not yet satisfied, they continue to “teach” and “train” Americans the “art” of war, and continue    pushing and planning for a new war on Iran and fantasizing and drooling over yet another war on Egypt.

The boil that festers underneath all this aggression and destruction appears to have stemmed from one misperceived misconceived word which turned sour, nay, in the eyes of the nations it looks atrociously hideous, and on their tongues it tastes awfully bitter: CHOSENNESS

This one word, a taboo not to be mentioned, uttered or discussed, seems to be the engine behind what we see in the arrogant behaviour of Jewish-Zionist colonizers in Palestine and the contempt they exhibit when dealing with Palestinians, the “unchallengeable” sense of entitlement: to world leadership, divine ownership and uncontrollable drive for power and control.

Once and for all, let us poke that boil, before it burst into a global catastrophe, dragging the entire world into a nuclear biocidal war causing the destruction of all what we cherish in our beautiful planet and what humanity has achieved throughout its history.

In the subsequent two articles quoted towards the end, we get a glimpse into the mind and psychological state of two people who were religiously educated and indoctrinated with that concept.

The first being Dina Avramson, we feel her agony struggling to reconcile her intrinsic egalitarian humanity with such indoctrinated irrational supremacy, as she explains: “I would laugh if it wasn’t so sad the self-conviction that Jews possess all that is pure andnoble and maintain a constant connection to divinity and to infinite light, while all other nations of the world are overcome by promiscuity, lust and robbery. We are holy, yet they are filled with darkness and spiritual impurity.”

Then she goes on to say: ” As a graduate of religious Jewish education, I notice that to this day I face a mental-psychological barrier when facing non-Jews. I discover that deep within me I believe that I am nobler than them and I stutter when I need to explain why I cannot marry a gentile. What can I tell them, that a Jew must not mix in with a gentile soul because it is of lower strata? When I search for the word “soul” online, I find explanations on religious websites noting that Jews have two souls, a beastly one and a divine one, while non-Jews only have one, beastly soul.

The following links give an introductory taster to that misperceived concept of CHOSENNESS.
“70 % “Israeli Jews believe they are the chosen”

“We are the Chosen”

“If you are chosen, act it”

“Safed rabbi: Gentiles jealous of chosen people”

Palestinians are the prime victims of this “Chosenness”

 

Secular manifestation of chosen-ness: “elitism and specialness”

Other manifestations: “tribal loyalty and exclusivity”

  “A chosen people that believes in its God. That is Israel, circa 2012. God have mercy on us”

Chosen people? Not quite 

Op-ed: Dina Avramson says Jews should dispose of notion that they are superior to other people

Dina Avramson
Published: 05.28.12, 10:02 / Israel Opinion

On the eve of Shavuot I dressed up in white; they say it’s the wedding day of God and His people, so I was ready for it. I prepared all the requirements: Plants to adorn the table and a cold cheese cake in the fridge. All that was left was to clarify the essence of this prominent day, decide to again assume the Torah’s burden upon myself, and read it the whole night as one reads love letters; to recall how God chose us from all the nations and what this really means.

He chose us? From all nations? Really? I read online one story of how God went from one nation to another and offered His holy Torah, yet no one wanted it. The Ishmaelites wanted to keep murdering, the Edomites wanted to keep committing adultery, and only the righteous and pure Israelites, who never murder and never commit adultery, told God: “We shall do and hear.”

Stalled Promise?
Why won’t God reveal himself again? / Rabbi Levi Brackman
According to tradition, collective transcendence above ego was key for revelation
Full story

Religious singer Avraham Fried went even further. Instead of singing about Ishmaelites and Edomites, he sang about adulterous French, greedy Brits, Americans who don’t know how to honor their father and mother, and thieving Arabs. Yet only the Jew with the prayer shawl is the righteous hero and is given the Torah. We’re so lucky.

I would laugh if it wasn’t so sad – the self-conviction that Jews possess all that is pure and noble and maintain a constant connection to divinity and to infinite light, while all other nations of the world are overcome by promiscuity, lust and robbery. We are holy, yet they are filled with darkness and spiritual impurity.

So is that the case? No, would say those in the know. It’s not about us being above them; we are simply like an elite unit. We chose to assume the burden for the sake of the others. We took upon ourselves tougher missions in order to lead the world to a better place. I may be able to accept this explanation – the understanding that we chose strict laws in order to achieve lofty goals – yet I most certainly cannot accept the distinction between us and the rest of the world, as if we are the chosen son.

Does God love them less? Based on my limited knowledge, I believe that every nation has its way of connecting to God. The Indians, who hail from the element of wind, do well with lengthy meditations, while Islam, which hails from the fire element, is required to assume great modesty. The Sufis connect via dance and song, and native Americans who come from the element of earth drink a muddy beverage that that leads them to divinity.

Does God love them less? Does He appreciate their work less? Is a Buddhist monk who sits in a cave for three years less connected than me?

As a graduate of religious Jewish education, I notice that to this day I face a mental-psychological barrier when facing non-Jews. I discover that deep within me I believe that I am nobler than them and I stutter when I need to explain why I cannot marry a gentile. What can I tell them, that a Jew must not mix in with a gentile soul because it is of lower strata? When I search for the word “soul” online, I find explanations on religious websites noting that Jews have two souls, a beastly one and a divine one, while non-Jews only have one, beastly soul.

 

I realize that my knowledge is only akin to a drop in the ocean and that had I immersed myself in studies I would be able to understand the issues more thoroughly. However, most people do not spend hours upon hours studying and are therefore left with the superficial knowledge of the chosen people’s superiority. Only this week I received an invitation on Facebook to join a group called “Let’s show the Sudanese that we rule!” This is what happens when you think you’re better than someone else.

Perhaps the time has come to leave behind this flawed way of thinking, as though we are favored and better understand what’s right for the world, as though our Torah is the exclusive truth across the universe and there are no other ways to experience a revelation, and as though any foreigner who wishes to live in our country is a threat.

So on the eve of Shavuot I got dressed in white and headed to the synagogue to read, with love, the words of the Torah. I know that for me this is the most suitable way to connect to the infinite light, but I also know that somewhere on the other side of the planet there are different people who connect to it in a different way, and they are considered no less precious children.

The second article:

Exclusive: Hate All Non-Jews,

QUOTES

“A recently published book written by a Skver hasidic rabbi and endorsed by the Skvere Rebbe himself tells Skvere hasidim and other Jews to hate all gentiles. Gentiles are wholly evil, the book says. They spiritually pollute the world, and even looking at their faces is harmful.”

 “However, to separate with a million degrees of separation, a gentile is an impure thing.  The entire essence of the gentile is evil and impure.  Even if he occasionally does good deeds he does not thereby become good.”

“As is also well known, even educated gentiles who guarded themselves because of their clear understanding of what is right, nonetheless failed when they were tested, because a gentile has no power for goodness within him.”

“On the contrary, the evil thoughts of gentiles contaminate the world’s atmosphere and create ordeals for Jewish children. As the Remnant for Pinchos {i.e., the author of the book Sheairit L’Pinchas} says, the thoughts of gentiles, even when they are dead, still linger in and contaminate the atmosphere.”

“He says that to be protected from this there is only one solution; to completely despise the thoughts of gentiles and to realize that all their thoughts are only evil. (Hate doesn’t mean wanting to do something to a gentile, but it means not being able to tolerate him, not being able to stand him, because of his great impurity, especially when one realizes how harmful this {impurity} is {to Jews and to the world}.) Understandably, loving a gentile is the exact opposite of this.”

“So also the Holy Light of Life {i.e., the author of the book Ohr HaHayyim} writes, in the portion of Vayigash {in his book entitled Oh HaHayyim}, that the nature of the righteous ones is to hate gentiles.”

“the nature of the righteous ones is to hate gentiles.”
Armed French citizens responded to the call of Jewish Defence League and came to lend a hand to their brethren 
QUOTE

“The second point is; one is not to concentrate on the face of a gentile. As the Willows of the Valley {the author of the book Arvei Nahal} writes on the Talmudic passage, “it is forbidden to look upon the face of an evildoer”, because the other side [the devil] {the sitra achra} cloaks himself in the guise of an evildoer and it is a danger to look at him. This passage refers to a Jew who has, God forbid, become an evildoer. Certainly, beyond any doubt, a gentile whose whole nature is essentially evil, looking at his appearance is defiling.”

“one is not to concentrate on the face of a gentile… it is forbidden to look upon the face of an evildoereven looking at their faces is harmful.

You can even find this troubling concept mentioned on Wikipedia:

Distinction between Jews and non-Jews

A number of medieval Kabbalistic sources contain statements to the effect that the Jewish soul is ontologically different from the soul of non-Jews; for example, it is held by some that Jews have three levels of soul, nefesh, ruach and neshamah while non-Jews have only nefesh. The Zohar comments on the Biblical verse which states “Let the waters teem with swarms of creatures that have a living soul” as follows: “The verse ‘creatures that have a living soul,’ pertains to the Jews, for they are the children of God, and from God come their holy souls….And the souls of the other nations, from where do they come? Rabbi Elazar says that they have souls from the impure left side, and therefore they are all impure, defiling anyone who comes near them” (Zohar commentary on Genesis).

Some later Kabbalistic works build and elaborate on these ideas. One point of view is represented by the Hasidic work Tanya (1797), in order to argue that Jews have a different character of soul: while a non-Jew, according to the author Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi (b. 1745), can achieve a high level of spiritually, similar to an angel, his soul is still fundamentally different in character, but not value, from a Jewish one.[49] A similar view is found in early medieval philosophical book Kuzari, by Yehuda Halevi (1075-1141 AD).

Another prominent Habad Rabbi, Abraham Yehudah Khein (b. 1878), believed that spiritually elevated Gentiles have essentially Jewish souls, “who just lack the formal conversion to Judaism”, and that unspiritual Jews are “Jewish merely by their birth documents”.[51] The great 20th century Kabbalist Yehuda Ashlag viewed the terms “Jews” and “Gentile” as different levels of perception, available to every human soul.

Racism, supremacy, specialness, entitlement, arrogance and tribal elitism are an inevitable outcome cultivated and nurtured from that one seed of chosenness.

The burden of challenging and fighting that concept to the point of total defeat lies within the Jewish communities themselves. It is of no good to keep denying the existence of this elephant in the room… It is of no good to keep pointing fingers and screaming “ANTI-SEMITE”, at gentiles who feel extremely alarmed and distressed with that concept. Fair minded and principled people from Jewish background should take it upon themselves to go inside their communities and convince them to abandon that concept and pull it out from its roots.

Failing to do so, will no doubt have dire consequences not only on Palestinians and other gentiles who feel the brunt of this racist ideology but also on decent Jews who with all their heart reject this concept and feel ashamed and shackled by it.

As long as the concept of chosenness is not challenged and eradicated, once and for all, it is not possible to dream of a just world or imagine an egalitarian society built on brotherhood and equality.

Get rid of the CHOSENNESS in theory and practice, and watch Anti-semitism shrivel away.

A Palestinian Stone Speaks out


His small swift hand, 
Picked me up 
And the soft, gentle palm
 Gave me a cuddle 
Warm, safe and secure 
He made me feel.. 
He said no words
 He shed no tears
 YET… 
His long lasting pain
 I couldn’t ignore
 Bulldozers.. tanks
And F16s
 With evil colours
 Evil sights
 Evil touch 
And evil sounds
  Surrounded his tiny frame 
Proclaiming 
The evil war of
“Absolutely No Shame” 
 He squeezed me hard 
Knowing it’s good-bye 
“Just throw me
As hard as you can”
 I whispered…
“Together …
We’ll be fine !!” 
And just for a moment
I felt eternity 
Only for a moment
I touched infinity… 
When “Brave-Heart” boy 
Feels so strong 
And there he stands 
All… alone
 Facing evil armies.. 
Only with a stone 
The evil bullet was faster
 Than his little hand
His frail… pale body 
Falls to the ground 

With a beautiful smile 

He says his good-bye 
His soft gentle palm 
Gave my soul
Its peaceful eternal hug!

With a scorching tear 

and heartfelt cry

I proclaimed

YOU Palestinian,

My beloved child

A teacher of dignity 

to all mankind


Childhood Friends


Trembling,  my hands over my heart

Walking towards them, thinking:

All those years, they haven’t changed a bit!

Do you remember me?
I whispered
I used to play here
long time ago


Do you remember the girl who used to arrive to school at dawn


while people still asleep


Yes it’s me


The girl who tiptoed her way in
not to disturb the melody of birds singing their morning prayer


The girl who used to tell you stories
about her lucent wings which could only open
when no one is looking


The girl who used to dream of her home in heaven
its rainbow staircase and windows of stars
her bed of roses
blanket of jasmine and pillow of clouds
The girl who used to tell you stories
about her doll who could read and write
but who could only talk at the stillness of the night

The girl with a wooden horse
 who could only fly
when children lay in bed and close their eyes

The girl who adored her doll’s family
who lived far away but could only visit
when boys and girls cross the line into dreamland


Do you remember me?

I used to play here

long time ago

Heart pounding, I whispered

Blushing, they turned their heads, looked at me-
Faces beaming, they nodded
 and smiled

The journey



 The Journey

 

Where can the river go

But to the ocean?

Would the ocean turn it away?

 

Will the stream lose its way

While making its journey

Into the sea?

 

Can the water droplet

Ever escape

The globe?


East… west

North or south

Up… down

Turn all around

 

What ever direction

You choose to take

You’re always there

 

Forever travelling

Constantly arriving

 

Don’t keep trying

To flee

Embrace your destiny

Enjoy the voyage

 

With open arms

Run to the Source

No other way

Once upon a time, I lived in Heaven


Once upon a time 
When I was a little girl
My dreams were wild and colourful 
 Just like my hair
Like all boys and girls
I grew inside a rose
When I was a little girl
I played around
Floating over waterlilies
Bouncing in the shadow of poppies
Hiding under garden leaves
and in my grandma’s shawl
Gathering stars 
Thumbelina I was called, by my fairy friends
 Who often hovered around the hills of  Beit Iksa, where angels dwell
 Chasing lilac footsteps of my fairy friends
 Fluttering my wings,
 I flew up up and away 
To the high peak of Nabi Samuel
 Up there
 Close to Heaven
Overwhelmed with the magic of our existence 
 Astounded by our awareness
 Full of adoration 
We all fall down 
 Faces to the ground
 Praying 
Praising the One who bestowed upon us
The wondrous gift of life 
 At twilight, I made my way down
 rolling in a cylinder can 
Heading to the home of my grandfather
 Under a blanket of sacredness 
 Little children gathered
 Hearts pounding
Eyes open wide
 Listening to my grandfather stories
Of men, women and children
 With lives of purity
And hearts of gold
 In the stillness of the night
 We could hear the echo of prophets chanting
 Issa, Musa and Muhammed
 Hymning psalms of Dawoud 
 Praying side by side
 Enchanted by the grace of Maryam and her son
 Bewildered by tales of Yunus, Yahya and Suleiman
 We closed our eyes Slipping into wilderness of dreamland 

Where kindness grow on trees 
 Goodness covers the ground 
And love falls from sky
Tantalizing, jut like rain
 
Colourful words echoed around

 YES . . .

 Once upon a time 
 I lived in HEAVEN
 Nostalgic, I recall

Most Precious Gifts


Leaving Palestine when I was seven put my life on hold

Leaving Palestine today tore my soul away Shredded, it lingered behind
Scattered between the hills of El Haram El Shareef and Olive Mount

Casting her shadow

A rainbow of tenderness and love

over the graves of her ancestors


Drenched with sorrow
Imbued with sadness
Empty, as if bereaved;
I walked away
“Cheer up”, I whispered in my ear
“Think of what you just had
where have you been?
what have you seen?”
Sparkles of light peeked through my grief
Sprouting lilies
Blossoming hearts and stars
Then I heard my heart singing 
I had been to PALESTINE
I had been to PALESTINE 
I had seen it IN SPRING
I had seen it IN SPRING
First time since exile
Forty five years of cruel exile
I had been to PALESTINE

 

A beatific gift… humbling down
Thank you God, Most Gracious, Most Sublime
I had been to PALESTINE
I had the honour to stand before a child
whose gaze caresses Jerusalem hills
as she wanders in her thoughts
At night, she opens the door
Her colourful dreams run outflying over the village next door
Stroking her hills, calming her fearsGiving Lifta solace in her solitude

Praying with her for the return of her loved ones
Humbled, besotted, full of adoration
I fall on my knees
 Thank you God, Most Gracious, Most Sublime
I had been to PALESTINE
I had the pleasure
of looking into the eyes of my grandmother
To kneel before her, kiss her hand
To see her smiling
To hear her voice
To hold her close
To dry my tears with her veil
To soothe my heart with her prayers
Thank you God, Most Gracious, Most Sublime
I had been to PALESTINE
With the eyes of my soul
I had seen my many loved ones
my parched heart swells with gratitude

Flowers with joy
Smiles grow broad, sincere and serene
Thank you God, Most Gracious, Most Sublime

YES
I had been to PALESTINE
Thank you God, Most Gracious, Most Sublime

My Beloved has Many Faces

In Palestine, I saw the most beautiful;
بياع باب العمود
Awestruck, I forget to ask his name
or even take his picture
But, if dignity has a name, it will be his
If purity has a form, it will be his eyes
He sold very few ka’ak كعك بسمسم that day
The leftover pile was hard and dry
When I asked the price, eager to sell, he said: “one shaykel each, instead of three”
“Give me four, please and keep the change” I said
Blushing
“I cannot accept that, mama” he said
“Mama, I am your son, how do you want me to do that?” he said
“But you hardly sold anything, my son” perplexed I replied

“Allah is the Provider, don’t worry mama;

We worry not, some days are good and others not;
But we’re always grateful no matter what;
Welcome to Al-Quds, I am your son mama” he said with a heart-melting smile
Eyes moist, heart-wrenched, wonder struck
Leaving my soul behind
I walked away
In the eyes of a Jerusalemite child, I saw the face of my beloved
.
In Palestine, I saw the most beautiful;
عائلة الوهباني
If nobility has a name, it will be theirs
If kindness has a form, it will be their eyes
Seven sisters, three brothers, a mum and a dad and an orange farm
Shoved away by some “chosen” few
A tiny room in Ramleh town became their home
Their farm confiscated, turned into a prison
Some years past by
The boys and girls grow up, got married and had children of their own
The children spoke of justice, 
They sang for freedom and Liberation
Infuriated, the “chosen” few threw them in prison which was once their orange farm
The children smiled and said:
 “Our hearts, our souls, our blood… we sacrifice for you, our beloved”
In the eyes of Ramleh children, I saw the face of my beloved
.
In Palestine, I saw the most beautiful;
محمد بركات
If majesty has a name, it will be his
If heroism has a form, it will be his eyes
His name is very common in Palestine
But he is no ordinary man
Before Muhammed, I stood in silence
Before Muhammed, I bowed down
Captive in his Homeland
Captive in his village
Captive in his body
Borders, barbed-wire, checkpoints, walls and a wheelchair
Is all what’s around
But
“Disabled without Borders” is his child
 His wings flutter above and touch the sky
In his wheelchair he travels the world
Telling the story to those who care
In the eyes of quadriplegic Muhammed, I saw the face of my beloved
.
In Palestine, I saw the most beautiful;
عائلة أم صبحي
If elegance has a name, it will be hers
If grace has a form, it will be her eyes
Um Subhi was her name
Mother of four
One pearl and three gems
One princess and three knights
Every knight had his share
In the dungeons of the “chosen”
Their bodies tasted torture
Yet in their hearts angels whispered
Compassion, tenderness and eloquence
Their actions spoke of wonders
Courage, altruism, steadfastness and modesty
Zenith of moral splendour
In the eyes of Um Subhi family, I saw the face of my beloved
.
My beloved has many faces
My beloved is beautiful
BUT
One spooky night while in slumber
Nightmare-ogres found their way out
From all four corners they crept in
Marching beasts of wrath and doom
Spewing terror… gathering decadence
Tightened grip of monstrous tentacles
Bashing and lashing to squeeze her life out
.
My beloved still resisting while people are asleep
Deep inside her soul rivers of mercy flow
kindness still grows and dignity stands tall
.
My beloved has many faces
My beloved is beautiful
.

Of Love and Forgiveness


Of Love and Forgiveness

Love and Forgiveness are so much alike

Attributes of the Sublime

A river; runs through the soul

Tranquil

Powerful

Beautiful

Pure

Cleansing

Refreshing

Invigorating

Liberating

Never-ending

Life-giving

Gracefully available


But no one is forced to drink

Love can only be felt by those who open their hearts to receive

Forgiveness is granted only to souls that yearns to be cleansed

About Truth

 

A great person is one

Whose constant aim

Is searching for truth


For only in finding truth

Justice can be done

A great person

Becomes greater

If when getting it wrong

Finds no shame

In retreating

Admitting his error

Moving on

 

However

The Ultimate Truth

Is the lost property

Of the wise

Humanity is Doomed When…


. . . . . Deadly Ideology Turns into Practice

Mishneh Torah, Chapter 10, Halacha 3

A gentile who studies the Torah is obligated to die. They should only be involved in the study of their seven mitzvot.
 The Hebrew Bible: Numbers 21:2

 “Then the people of Israel made this vow to the Lord: If you will hand these people over to us, we will completely destroy all their towns” (including the inhabitants of the land

 “Joshua said to the people of Israel, “The Lord has given you the city of the all silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the Lord: They shall come into the treasury of the Lord. The people utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox and sheep and ass with the edge of the sword. (Joshua 6:21,23)

“And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain”.(Deuteronomy 2:34)

 “Now therefore go, and smite Amalec, and utterly destroy all that he hath; spare him not, nor covet any thing that is his; but slay both man and woman, child and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.” (Samuel 15:3)

 The Book of Isaiah, Chapter 60:16

“Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob”

 The Book of Isaiah, 60:12

“For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.”

THE LAWS OF KINGS AND THEIR WARS

6) The obligation to destroy the seven nations living in the Land of Canaan;

7) The prohibition against allowing any one of them to remain alive;

8) The obligation to destroy the descendents of Amalek;

9) The obligation to remember what Amalek did;

*****

Mishneh Torah, Chapter 1, Halacha 1

Israel was commanded to fulfill three mitzvot upon entering the Promised Land:

a) To choose a king, as Deuteronomy 17:15 states: ‘Appoint a king over yourselves;’

b) To wipe out the descendents of Amalek, as Deuteronomy 25:19 states: ‘Erase the memory of Amalek;’

c) To build God’s Chosen House, as Deuteronomy 12:5 states: ‘Seek out His Presence and go there.’

*****

Mishneh Torah, Chapter 1, Halacha 2:

Amalek’s seed should be annihilated before the construction of the Temple

“A king should not be appointed from converts to Judaism, ‘You may not appoint a foreigner who is not one of your brethren.’”

*****

It is a positive commandment to annihilate the seven nations who dwelled in Eretz Yisrael as Deuteronomy 20:17 states: ‘You shall utterly destroy them.’

Anyone who chances upon one of them and does not kill him violates a negative commandment as ibid.:16 states: ‘Do not allow a soul to live.’ The memory of them has already been obliterated.

If they do not agree to a peaceful settlement, or if they agree to a peaceful settlement, but refuse to accept the seven mitzvot, war should be waged against them.

All males past majority should be killed. Their money and their children should be taken as spoil, but neither women or children should be killed, as Deuteronomy 20:14 states: ‘But the women and the children… take as spoil.” ‘The children’ refer to males below the age of majority.

The above applies to a milchemet hareshut fought with other nations. However, if either the seven nations or Amalek refuse to accept a peaceful settlement, not one soul of them may be left alive as ibid. 20:15-16 states: ‘Do this to all the cities that … are not the cities of these nations. However, from the cities of these nations,… do not leave a soul alive.’ Similarly, in regard to Amalek, Deuteronomy 25:19 states: ‘Obliterate the memory of Amalek.’
Not to forget the Milchemet Reshut (לחמת רשות) “Jewish Wars of Aggression” :

“milchemet reshut … a war of aggression The Torah permits such a war to expand the borders of Eretz Yisrael, to capture captives,or because the King of Israel decides thatwar is good for the country and for God”

Milchemet reshut is war against other nations to enlarge Eretz Yisrael and increase its prestige.”

Motherhood Redefined


“If we want to remain alive, we will have to kill and kill and kill. All day, every day. If we don’t kill we will cease to exist.” – Jewish-Israeli Prof. Arnon Sofer of Haifa University, Jerusalem Post – Arnon Sofer –

How could anyone develop such a perception of themselves, of others, of the world, and of reality around them?

what kind of mindset would produce a perception so twisted, so skewed, so severely distorted almost beyond repair or recognition?

Arming and training of Jewish-settler women, the Illegal colonists

They train tirelessly

Only to do this

They also train dogs to attack
 

The Jewish-settlers who occupied Palestine, who engage in the above crimes and who ethnically cleansed Palestine, simultaneously claim  “Intellectual superiority” as well as moral and spiritual superiority

 They also study the Talmud zealously
 Then they contemplate about it long and hard
Then confidently declare the revelation: “the sole purpose of non-Jews is to serve the Jews
 Then of course being Light unto the nations, they kindly come to share their values

 After this photo-essay, the one million dollar question is, why is it that some of our so called “Jewish-supporters” want to forbid us from looking at and understanding the ideology that motivates such mass-murderers?

and the ten million dollar question is, why is it that those alleged “Jewish-supporters” use every trick in the book, including slander and defamation, to stop us from examining the international networks that support  such mass-murderers?

But the million million dollar question is, why do such alleged “supporters” hysterically and frantically try to hide the role of the global Jewish communities and their organizations, their  colossal political support, their deep bond and commitment and their widespread affiliation and affection to such illegal entity and its genocidal criminals?

Furthermore, some of the so called “supporters” continue to work tirelessly to insure and  facilitate a secure and permanent future for such lunatic criminals in Palestine. They pretend to campaign with Palestinians only to curtail and to steer their struggle and coerce them into sharing their battered homeland with supremacist psychopaths.

 BREAK the CHAINS of FEAR and INTIMIDATIONandREAD…. GET INFORMED….. DO NOT BE AFRAID
STAND TALL 
YOU HAVE A SPINEAIM for LIBERATION
PALESTINIANS DID IT … SO YOU CAN!

Her hands tied behind her back
Her feet shackled to the ground
Her hair shaved 
Her face blistered
Her body bruised 
Her nails pulled out 
Battered 
She pleaded for a break
A moment of stillness 
A moment of silence
A moment of nothingness
A moment of death even 
Or just a wheelchair 
.
Warlocks in black encircled her
Intoxicated with their “chosen-ness”
They danced and twirled around her shadow 
.
.
Revamped, manicured, suit-wearing cannibals 
Drooled over her heart
Eyes rolling 
Salivating over their supper-to-be 
.
.
A stone-soldier stood by
 No tongue, no heart, no eyes 
In his hand I saw the knife that carved out her heart
.
.
Trembling, I came closer 
She was still breathing
Her frayed heart still throbbing 
.

She is ALIVE

I wept of pain
I wept of joy
My salty tears rubbed deep into her wounds
She jumped 
Kneeling down, I gave her a kiss
Whispered something in her ear
.
She gasped for life 
Looked at me 
Eyes sparkled with a grin 
She knew
The birth of her baby is near
 Her soul bounced back 
Vigorous, buoyant, whole again
and Stunningly Beautiful
