The Dark Legacy of a President


Cahn-1In Genesis 12, God gives Abraham a promise: “I will bless those you who bless you and curse those who curse you.” In other words, those peoples, kings, and nations that bless the children of Israel, the Jewish people, will be blessed. And those who curse them will be cursed. But it goes further than that. The promise contains the principle of reciprocity. Whatever you do to Israel will be done to you.

Did a 4,000-year-old covenant just put an end to the legacy of Barack Obama? Could an ancient promise of God recorded in the Book of Genesis, actually cause the election of Donald Trump? Continue reading

Something Strange happened in Paris


 On January 15, 2017, apprehension was heightened in the hearts of the Israeli people and those in the United States who stood firmly beside them as leaders from 70 countries went to Paris to discuss a two-state solution between the Jewish Nation and the Palestinians.  The purpose of the summit was to further actions led by Obama’s administration at the UN, mandating that Israel would cede significant sections of its territory to a group of Palestinians,  thus denying Israel their rights to their Biblical ancestral home.  The Obama administration was behind the anti-Israel UN Security Council Resolution that passed on Christmas weekend in a 14-0 vote.

Another Biblical Curse upon America


animated-israel-flag-2Because Barack Obama has cursed Israel at the United Nations, America is now under a curse.  Friday’s stunning betrayal of Israel at the UN Security Council is making headlines all over the planet, but the truth is that what Obama has just done is far more serious than most people would dare to imagine.  Over the past several decades, whenever the U.S. government has taken a major step toward the division of the land of Israel it has resulted in a major disaster hitting the United States.  This keeps happening over and over again, and yet our leaders never seem to learn.  And despite the fact that President-elect Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and prominent members of both parties in Congress strongly urged Obama to veto Security Council resolution 2334, he went ahead and let it pass anyway.

A Letter to a President


Dear Mr. President,animated-israel-flag-2

………………………………

I have given extensive study to the Jewish Palestinian guestion.  The issue is whether we will take the authority of the Bible of our mothers or the Karan with the sword and flame.  In that whole controversy the big issue is who owns the land, who has the title to that land?  If that question is settled there is no other question.

The Lord God Almighty in Genesis the 17th chapter, specifically states that the title to Palestine is given ot to Ishmael, the ancestor of the Arabs, but to Isaac and his seed forever.  “And God said, Sarah they wife shall  bear thee a son indeed’; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him”  Genesis 17:19                                                                                                                                                                      This covenant was confirmed to Isaac, Genesis 26:3    Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and to thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father.

This covenant was confirmed unto Jacob, Genesis 28:13  “And behold, the LORD stood above it, and said I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it and to thy seed.”

The covenant was likewise confirmed to Moses in Deuteronomy 30: 3-5.  ” Then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.  If any of the be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:  And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers”

David specifically states the title to that land is to the Jews and the descendants of Jacob:   Psalm 105: 9-12  “Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac,And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:  Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan the lot of your inheritance:   When they were but a few men in number, yea, very few, and strangers in it”

Thirteen hundred years ago the Arabs were usurpers, Mohmnnet with fire and sword, and they were robbers of property that belongs to the Jews.  A second and very important authority in addition to the Scriptural authority, Great Britain was given mandate over Palestine for the purpose of Jewish immigration into hat land and for making it a national home.  This mandate was confirmed by the United States Government and by the 57 Nations of the League of Nations.

The tragedy and the cause of all the present trouble is that Neville Chamberlain, Prime Minister, put on a two fold appeasement in 1939.  First with Hitler, and that brought on World War II.  Second, with the Arabs who were the allies of Hitler.  Chamberlain violated the international law giving that land as a national home for Jews in 1939, and said that only 70,000 Jews would be permitted to go the next five years, and after that none except by the consent of the Arabs.  But the mandate made no such restrictions.  Therefore the present Jewish immigration into Palestine is not “illegal”; it’s legal.

Based on the mandate given to Great Britain over Palestine, and confirmed by the United States Government and confirmed by the League of Nations, the Jews invested six hundred and fifty million dollars in Palestine, built cities, public works, and the curse of God Almighty is on every hand that violated this most solemn agreement the mandate three times over  confirmed.

Now, Mr. President, it certainly is a matter that should cause us to stop and think the  Arab leaders from the Grand Multi on down were allies of Hitler, and it ill becomes them to come now into court with their hands dripping with the blood of Jews, six million of them murdered by Hitler.

I interviewed many Arab leaders and without question I found that the whole crowd are for Stalin, just like they formerly were for Hitler.  While this country was fighting Hitler, thirty thousand young Jews from Palestine volunteered and went to the battle front and not a single Arab regiment.  If the Arabs and the Jews in Palestine were left alone they would get along and settle their troubles.  Russia is doing everything a her command to ferment the trouble.

The time has come, and long past, when the United States should keep its promise and take a firm stand for law and order in that land that has given the world it Bible and Saviour.

Perhaps it would behoove our current President not to defy the Living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by befriending the Arabs, the devout enemy of the Jewish people.

The Fate of Hamas


_76356166_30d7cfb1-cf96-42c8-9fdb-eec686425377  HamasHAMAS –Hamas”, Arabic acronym for Islamic Resistance Movement is a word that is familiar to people who keep up on the news about current events in Israel.  Of all the anti-Israel Muslim terrorist organizations, Hamas is one of the most violent. The Hebrew word hamas, in fact, means violence.  Many times the word hamas appears in the Hebrew Bible, and what the Bible says about the fate of those who carry out hamas/violence against the people of Israel.   Reading through The Twelve Prophets (Hosea through Malachi) in Hebrew, it is surprising how may times the word hamas is mentioned.(68 times)   According to the Bible, those who practice hamas/violence against the children of Israel will bring the fierce wrath of God down upon themselves.

A Message from Prime Minister Netanyahu


 

Benjamin+Netanyahu+Israel+Prime+Minister+Benjamin+46M8P1HQusNlTo Ismail Haniya, and the leaders and operatives of Hamas:

We, the people of Israel, owe you a huge debt of gratitude.  You have succeeded where we have failed.  Because never before, in the history of the modern State of Israel, has the Jewish people been so united, like one person with one heart.  You stole three of our most precious children, and slaughtered them in cold blood.  But before we could discover the horrible truth, we had 18 days of pain and anxiety while we searched for them, during which our nation united as never before, in prayer, in hopes, in mutual support.

And now, as you continue to launch deadly missiles indiscriminately, intended to maim and murder as many civilians as possible, while you take cowardly refuge behind your own civilians – you continue to inspire us to hold strongly onto our newly discovered unity.  Whatever disputes we Jews may have with each other, we now know that we have one common goal: we will defeat you.

But we are offering you now one last chance.  Within 24 hours, all rocket fire – and I mean all rocket fire – will cease.  Completely.  Forever.

I give you formal notice that our tanks are massed at the Gaza border, with artillery and air support at the ready.  We have already dropped leaflets over the northern parts of the Gaza strip, warning civilians of our impending arrival, and that they should evacuate southward, forthwith.  If you fail to meet our ultimatum, we are coming in, and, with God’s help, this time we will not leave.  Every centimeter of land that we conquer will be annexed to Israel, so that there will never be another attack launched at our civilians from there.

Even so, we will continue to keep the door open to allow you to surrender gracefully.  The moment you announce that you are laying down arms, we will halt our advance, and there we will draw our new borders.  If you continue to attack our citizens, we will continue to roll southwards, driving you out of territory that you will never again contaminate with your evil presence

It pains me deeply that your civilians will be made homeless.  But we did not choose this war; you did.  And if our choice is between allowing our citizens to be targeted mercilessly by your genocidal savagery, versus turning your civilians into refugees, I regret that we must choose the latter.  If only you loved your people as much as you hate ours, this war would never have happened.

To the rest of the world: Israel has tired of your ceaseless chidings that we should “show restraint”.  When you have your entire population under constant missile fire from an implacable enemy whose stated goal is the of murder every man, woman and child in your land, then you may come and talk to us about “restraint”.  Until then, we respectfully suggest that you keep your double standards to yourselves.  This time, Hamas has gone too far, and we will do whatever we have to in order to protect our population.

Hamas, once again, I thank you for bringing our people together with such clarity of mind and unity of purpose.  The people of Israel do not fear the long road ahead.  Am Yisrael Chai.

Wow what a speech.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jolanta


Irena Sendler  Irena Sendler rescued thousands of Jewish children. By any measure, she was one of the most remarkable and noble figures to have emerged from the horrors of World War II. But, until recently, her extraordinary compassion and heroism went largely unrecorded. She smuggled out Jewish children in suitcases, ambulances, coffins, sewer pipes, rucksacks and, on one occasion, even a tool box. Those old enough to ask knew their savior only by her code-name “Jolanta”.

When the Germans finally caught her, the  social worker had managed to save 2,500 Jewish babies and toddlers from deportation to the concentration camps. She had spirited them out of the heavily guarded Jewish ghetto in Warsaw.  She was beaten, tortured and sentenced to death by the Gestapo – who even announced her execution. But Irena survived, her spirit unbroken, her secrets untold. What a woman she was.  For once, the term “heroine” is no exaggeration, though such plaudits did not sit easily with her. She said: “I was brought up to believe that a person must be rescued when drowning, regardless of religion and nationality. “The term ‘heroine’ irritates me greatly. The opposite is true. I continue to have pangs of conscience that I did so little.”

Irena always ascribed her desire to do good to the influence of her parents, in particular her father, a Polish physician in a small town near Warsaw. Most of his patients were poor Jews. He died during a typhus epidemic when Irena was seven. When the Germans invaded Poland in September 1939, Irena was working as a senior administrator in Warsaw’s social welfare department. She was responsible for food and financial aid to the city’s poor. Jewish children Jewish children in 1943 are escorted to the Warsaw Ghetto – Sendler wished she could have saved them all.

As the Nazis began a crackdown on the Jews, she widened the state assistance to include the racially persecuted, who were given fictitious Christian names to hide their true origins. The situation worsened dramatically in the autumn of 1940 when the German authorities created the Warsaw Ghetto. Some 440,000 Jews, more than a third of the city’s population, were herded into a 16-block neighborhood, around which a wall was built. It was to be both an open prison and a convenient means of isolating and holding the Jews before they were sent to their deaths at Treblinka extermination camp.

Disease and starvation stalked the streets. Five thousand died there every month. In July 1942, the Nazis began Operation Reinhard, which saw 250,000 Jews removed from the ghetto to Treblinka. The Final Solution had begun. Irena was horrified. She felt she had to help, so she joined Zegota, an underground organisation created by the Polish government-in-exile to help the nation’s Jews. In late 1942, she was made head of its children’s section. Her extraordinary work was about to begin. In conditions of extreme danger, she would save as many ghetto children from near-certain death as she could.

She often said that the hardest part was persuading the parents to let them go, even as they faced almost certain death. “Can you guarantee they will live?” she was asked by more than one agonised mother. “No, but if they stay here I guarantee that they will die,” was her stock reply. “You shouldn’t trust me. But what else can you do?” Sometimes, when her powers of persuasion failed, she would go away and return the next day to begin the negotiations again, only to find that the family had been sent to Treblinka overnight. But thousands were persuaded to make that heart-rending split, and Irena said: “In my dreams I still hear the cries of the children when they left their parents.”

Irena developed a network of two dozen conspirators. Some were tasked to get the children out, others to find homes for them outside the ghetto and a third group to obtain or forge hundreds of false documents for the young escapees. The way she secretly removed the children from the ghetto was not only ingenious but, in desperate circumstances, often bizarre. A standard trick was to strap a child underneath the stretcher of a patient being placed in an outgoing ambulance. Others were smuggled through an old courthouse and a church, which stood on the boundary of the ghetto and had doors opening into both sides. Still more were taken through the sewers. Those small enough were sometimes put in suitcases or boxes and wheeled out on porters’ trolleys. Coffins, bodybags and potato sacks all hid boys and girls. Irena concentrated first on removing orphans. But as the threat of the Final Solution grew, all children in the ghetto were offered sanctuary.

She kept a meticulous record of all the real names and the new identities of those whom she rescued and where they were sent. But she kept hidden a meticulous record of all their real names and new identities – so they might later be re-united with their families. This coded information was written on tissue paper. Identical lists were hidden in two glass jars, buried under the apple tree opposite a German army barracks. This was hardly ideal as the jars had to be dug up every time the name of a new escapee was added. But they were never found.

Even so, the Germans became aware of Irena’s activities and, in October 1943, she was arrested by the Gestapo and taken to the notorious Pawiak prison in Warsaw, which the Nazis turned into a concentration camp. There, her interrogator was a stylish young German who spoke perfect Polish. And when she refused to expose the Zegota underground network, he had her arms and legs broken. Sentenced to death – which by now she told her captors she wished for – Irena was taken in a semi- conscious state from the prison to a forest where she expected to be shot by firing squad. Although she was dumped in the forest, the firing squad never materialized.

The underground movement had successfully bribed the man tasked with overseeing her execution, and recovered her even as posters were put up around Warsaw proclaiming her death. Irena spent the rest of the war in hiding. But as soon as it ended, she handed over the tissue lists in the glass jars – vital information that could link the lost children to their families – to Jewish representatives. Alas, many of the families had perished in the Holocaust. Other children she had saved chose to stay with their foster parents – they could not remember their real parents. Some 500 were taken to Israel to start a new life. The fate of another 500 of the children she saved could not be traced, swallowed by the tides of war which engulfed so many Poles.

And Irena? She married and had two children of her own. But in postwar communist Poland her heroic deeds went unpublished and were even officially frowned upon by the regime, which was not sympathetic towards Jews. But as the children she rescued grew into adulthood, her achievements began to attract wider attention.  In 1983, Irena was decorated in Israel as “Righteous Among the Nations” – the highest honor bestowed by the Jewish people on non-Jews. During the ceremony, Teresa Kerner, one of the girls she had saved, now a doctor, recalled how Irena had helped her move several times to safe houses and then given her a home for two years at the end of the war.

Post- communist Poland also finally awarded Irena its highest civilian decoration in 2003. In 2007, she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, but it was awarded instead to Al Gore for his work in furthering Global environmental control. Nevertheless, her profile remained tiny compared with that of Oskar Schindler, the German industrialist who saved far fewer Jews than Irena, but was immortalized by an award winning book and film.

Her last years were spent in a wheelchair, thanks to the wounds inflicted on her by the Gestapo. A few months before she died, she said: “After World War II, it seemed that humanity understood something, and nothing like that would happen again. “Humanity has understood nothing. Religious, tribal, national wars continue. The world continues to be in a sea of blood.” But she added: “The world can be better if there’s love, tolerance and humility.” Irena Sendler had all three in abundance.

13sendler.190  Irena Sendler died in May 2003 at age of 98.  Her funeral was packed with mourners. One of the children was Elzbieta Ficowska. She was only a few months old when her mother gave her up to Irena. A mechanic put her in a tool box, placed it among a pile of bricks in the back of his lorry and took her out. Elzbieta never saw her mother again; the only evidence that she had ever been in the ghetto was a silver spoon with her name and birthdate engraved on it, which her mother had given to Irena. Still alive today, Elzbieta now says she had three mothers – her biological one, the Polish woman who took her in after she escaped from the ghetto … and Irena, the mother who saved her from certain death. Most of the children were sent with their new identities to orphanages and convents or placed in private homes. They were taught to replace their Jewish prayers with Christian ones in case the hiding places were raided. Even though the penalty for harboring a Jew in Poland was death, Irena claimed: “No one ever refused to take a child from me.”
