The other day I was talking with an aspiring screenwriter about great film actors. I mentioned Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Cary Grant, Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, and Marilyn Monroe. The aspiring screenwriter, a young woman, told me that she’d heard of them, seen a lot of their photos on the internet, but had “never actually watched any of their movies.”
Benjamin Netanyahu, in his devastating deconstruction of disastrous Obama’s Iranian policy was, in spite of Obama’s unprecedented assault on the Jewish State’s Prime Minister, a Churchillian attempt to preserve Western civilization against the onslaught of IslamoNazis.
Obama’s White House would have you believe that Obama’s problem is a personal beef with Bibi. In fact, Obama’s problem is with Israel, the Jewish State.
Obama views the world as a place where there are no evil people — only those who have legitimate grievances against various power groups. For Obama, Israel is a colonial aggressor against the poor folks of Palestine. And the reason the Palestinians are terrorist barbarians is because the Jews have made them so. This is the ideology of a provincial, dogmatically rigid community organizer who guilted America into electing him to the world’s most powerful office.
Israel will, said Netanyahu, act alone if she must, because once again, the Persian kingdom is on the march and is an existential threat to the Jewish people. Netanyahu’s goal with this declaration, which received one of 42 standing ovations, was to cement Congressional support for an Israeli strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, thereby neutralizing Obama’s poisonous hostility to the Jewish State.
Make no mistake about it, the leader of the free world is Benjamin Netanyahu.
Barack Obama is choosing to take a break from history. And if there is one thing loyal Jews have learned from the Torah it is that history never stops, cycles and patterns never change because human nature never changes. There is good and there is evil, and at some juncture, decent people must make the choice to name, confront, and destroy evil before it is ascendant.
Time to enjoy some wonderful photos. Hopefully, there is something for everyone.
In Kalooki Nights, the fine Jewish British novelist Howard Jacobson—whose work is akin to Jane Austen rather than the tedious Philip Roth to whom he is frequently compared—describes the type of secular post-modern Jew that has replaced traditional Jewish-Torah values with the false G-d of secular liberalism.
In the novel the main character is describing his father, but this could be a portrait of Debbie Wasserman Schultz—save her ghastly perm.
… preaching the religion of non-religion, a species of Judaism emptied of everything except its disputatiousness and liberality—a sort of secular universalism I suppose you’d have to call it, compromising socialism, syndicalism, Bundism, trade unionism, international brotherhhoodism, atheism, not to mention pugilism—which he imagined would one day be the saving of the Jews.
