Purim 2011

purim play  : Dry Bones cartoon.
The countries around us are burning with insurrections. Main Stream Media presents it as the birth of democracy. America seems powerless, lost, and is projecting weakness. The world condemns and delegitimizes us. Persians are sending warships…

…and it feels like Purim has come early this year.

Sounds like a reasonable question to me! 

A young Arab asks his father, “What is that weird hat you are wearing?”

The  father said, “Why, it’s a ‘chechia’, because in the desert it protects our heads from the sun.”

“And what is this type of weird clothing that you are  wearing?” Asked the young  man.

“It’s a ‘djbellah’, because in the desert it is very hot and it protects your body..” Said the father.

The son asked, “And what about these ugly  shoes on your feet?

His father replied, “These are ‘babouches’, which keep us from burning our feet when in the  desert.”

“Tell me, Abbu?” added the boy.

“Yes, my son?”

“Why are we living in Toms River, New Jersey and  you’re still wearing all this crap?”

Obama Administration Steps Up War On Israel

On Friday, Susan Rice, the Obama Administration’s Ambassador to the United Nations, vetoed a Palestinian inspired draft resolution which designated as illegal all territories occupied by Israel after the Six Day War. That includes the Old City of Jerusalem — The Western Wall, The Temple Mount, The Church of the Holy Sepulcher, etc.

While Rice’s veto was welcome she used her remarks to the Security Council to emphatically state that the Obama Administration agrees with the resolution’s policy. Rice told the

Security Council:

Our opposition to the resolution before this Council today should therefore not be misunderstood to mean we support settlement activity. On the contrary, we reject in the strongest terms the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity. For more than four decades, Israeli settlement activity in territories occupied in 1967 has undermined Israel’s security and corroded hopes for peace and stability in the region. Continued settlement activity violates Israel’s international commitments, devastates trust between the parties, and threatens the prospects for peace.

Her definition of “settlement activity” and “territories occupied in 1967” includes Jerusalem, the Old City.

Secretary of State Clinton reiterated this policy on Friday.

Jerusalem and Israel are under attack by the Obama Administration.

We must alert our friends and family now. Post to Facebook, Twitter, etc.
