Free meat? Bring it on!

From the Yated:

"The Torah tells us in Parshas Shoftim that when we shecht an animal, one should give the zeroah, lechayayim and keivah (right foreleg, jaw/cheekbone and stomach) to a kohen as matnos kehunah. Many poskim hold that one is not obligated to do this mitzvah in chutz la'aretz. Others. however, maintain that it is a mitzvah that one should perform in the Diaspora [as well].

On [the] Monday of Chol Hamoed/April 13, Dr. Zelig Schur of Cleveland was mekayeim this mitzvah. Under the supervision of Rabbi Dovid Gross, Dr. Shur shechted two lambs lekavod Yom Tov and presented the gifts to a kohen."

My latest dream

A few nights ago I had the most wonderful dream. It was erev Shabbos and I was in the rebuilt Jerusalem. There were long tables with white tablecloths as far as the eye could see and the tables were all set for the Shabbos meal. It was dusk and thousands of people were taking their seats. I kept running into people I know from my community - people with whom I am not close at all (in fact I don't really care for). When we saw each other, we embraced like brothers and laughed as if we were long lost family. It was an aura of such simcha, the likes of which I had never experienced.

May this be the end of oyr Galus and the beginning of the Holy Shabbos... the Geulah!

Are Jews Safe in America?

Do you believe that the current economic situation will spur a rise in Anti-Semitism in America?

Alarmist or Pragmatist?

"The time will come, by the will of Allah, when their property will be destroyed and their children will be exterminated, and no Jew or Zionist will be left on the face of this earth."

Are we seeing a cyclical trend that has been ongoing for two thousand years or is this the beginning of the end?

The Blood Libel has returned (see below)

Amalek is gaining strength. He is rearing his ugly head more and more.

It is Amalek attacking. It is the Austrian Anschluss. It is Spain 1492. It is the Chelminiki massacres. It is the beheading of the Jewish Tribes of Medina by Mohammed Y"S. It is the prophecies of Yermiahu HaNavi before the Churban. Time is running out and danger is ahead. I am feel like it may not yet be time to panic, but it is certainly time to prepare.

Are you prepared to leave?

Change is here...

We now have a President who calls the USA arrogant and bows to an Islamic Dictator.

[President Obama] said the US had been "arrogant" and "dismissive" towards its allies, while there was "insidious" anti-Americanism in Europe. He said these attitudes had to change.

-from the BBC. Thanks to Boker Tov Boulder for the heads up.

America's new anti-Israel stance, 900 million dollars to Hamas, our President (literally) bows to terrorists... Oh yeah, change is a-comin'!

Obama Leaves Israel as 'Lone Ranger’ in Nuclear Iran

As if we couldn't see this coming...

(IsraelNN.com) Israel and the United States are heading towards a parting of the ways on how to deal with the threat of Iranian nuclear capability, according to an article published Tuesday in the Middle East Times.

Unlike his predecessor, U.S. President Barack Obama is unlikely to approve, let alone cooperate, with the targeted assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists carried out by Israel's international Mossad intelligence agency, wrote journalist Richard Sale

Similarly, Israel will likely now be forced to go it alone on its long-standing system of sabotaging efforts to stymie Iran's effort to purchase nuclear technology in the international arena.

The article also raised the possibility that the Obama administration might try to put the brakes on Israeli covert operations against the Iranian nuclear program.

Obama has said from the outset that he intends to reach out to the Iranians and work to re-establish ties with the Islamic Republic that have been frozen for close to 30 years.

Sales contends that the U.S. hopes to use Iran as a launching point for supply convoys to American and NATO troops that are fighting in Afghanistan.

The Iranians also allegedly provided the U.S. with excellent intelligence information that helped America in its war against the Taliban when it attacked the Afghanistan-based group right after the "9/11" terror attack on the U.S. in 2001. Iran is an enemy of the Taliban.

However, the chances that Israel would actually stop its efforts to prevent what is rapidly becoming an existential threat to the Jewish State are almost nil, according to Washington think tank director Pat Clawson.

"It would be implausible to call off all covert ops," said Clawson, who heads the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. "If the U.S. pressures Israel, then the Israelis will simply stop talking to us about it."

Joint operations that were carried out together with U.S. intelligence agents against Iran's nuclear development activities under the Bush administration had "failed miserably," according to a former senior CIA official quoted in the article.

In fact, an American plan carried out in 2000 under the administration of former President Bill Clinton, husband of the current U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, was an equal debacle. Flawed plans for a nuclear bomb were covertly delivered to an Iranian official in Vienna by an American agent under a plan code-named "Operation Merlin." The Iranian scientists quickly spotted the flaws in the plans, however.

I have a sneaking suspicion that it may be time to pack our bags.
