In his 1899 Harper’s Monthly essay, “Concerning the Jews”, Mark Twain concludes his reflection on the Jewish people with a question.
All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?
There is no secret.
At least not to those of us who understand Jewish history and our eternal covenant with HaShem.
The Jewish people are immortal because of their adherence to the Torah.
At the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday, Barack Obama warned that we should not “get on our high horse” over the immolation of Royal Jordanian Air Force pilot 1st Lt. Muadh al-Kasasbeh because Christians used to burn people too.
It shocking and reprehensible that two days after Islamic terrorists burn a man alive, the President of the United States sternly lectures the American people about the 800-year-old Inquisition.
There have been over 25,000 Muslim acts of terror since 9-11. There is a cancer in the house of Islam. If you deny this, you deny reality. And if you deny reality, you are all but surrendering to bloodthirsty Islamic terrorists.
Obama’s depraved moral calculus is that of an adolescent who’s been blowing dope and experiencing, y’know, like, deep thoughts.
Those who draw a moral equivalence between ancient Christianity and contemporary Islamists should be shunned by responsible adults.
Decent people whose moral compass is intact will mount a high horse — and stay there.

We’re feeling a bit scattered. We’re spooked by the Emperor Obama, by what’s happening to this country. And of course by the Arab Muslim war against the Jews. The Iranians are edging closer to becoming a nuclear power. We are watching various national and international calamities unfold in slow motion. We feel helpless. And there are days when we feel, yup, hopeless.
Here are a few photos that, we hope, will lift your mood.

We’re feeling a bit scattered. Perhaps we’re spooked by ObamaCare, by what’s happening to this country. We are watching a national calamity unfold in slow motion, and we are helpless to stop it.
In any case, here are a few photos, most taken by yours truly, with an iPhone.
