U.S. asks to exhume body of Iraqi rape and murder victim

The reoccupation of Gaza:

The Zionist plan for the Middle East

U.S. Jewish leaders who met with the Turkish foreign minister disagreed sharply over Turkey's relations with Hamas. Participants in Wednesday's meeting with Abdullah Gul said it was unusually tense, with Jewish leaders questioning Turkey's insistence on defying the Western boycott of the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority government. Gul argued that such ties were useful to Israel, citing Turkey's recent, unsuccessful attempt to intervene with Hamas to free a captive Israeli soldier. Currently led by an Islamist-based party, Turkey relies on U.S. Jewish lobbying to maintain its profile in Washington. Representatives of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, United Jewish Communities, Jewish Council for Public Affairs, B'nai B'rith International, Anti-Defamation League and American Jewish Committee took part in the meeting

U.S. asks to exhume body of Iraqi rape and murder victim

Israel is depicted as the cruelest among nations, and falsely singled out as the primary cause of conflict in the Middle East and in the world. The ideological onslaught against the Jewish State – in the media, mainstream churches, and on campus – masquerades as legitimate criticism but is in reality an unfair and dishonest discourse which vilifies and delegitimizes Israel – and her supporters. This is, in effect, a new form of hatred.

Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik on the Jewish Obligation to Defend the Community from Attack:(They teach this to thier kids!!!)

[The following quotation appears on pp. 65–66 in Fate and Destiny, which was published in 1956!]

Divine providence is testing us once again via the crisis that has overtaken the land of Israel. Let it be clearly stated: The matter does not just affect the political future of Israel. The designs of the Arabs are directed not just against the political sovereignty of the State of Israel but against the very existence of the Yishuv in the land of Israel. They wish to destroy, heaven forbid, the entire community, "both men and women, infant and suckling, ox and sheep" (1 Samuel 15:3) At a Mizrachi convention I cited the view expressed by my father and master (Rabbi Moses Soloveitchik) of blessed memory, that the proclamation, "The Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation" (Exodus 17:16) does not only translate into the communal exercise of waging obligatory war against a specific race but includes as well the obligation to rise up as a community against any people or group that, filled with maniacal hatred, directs its enmity against Keneset Israel. When a people emblazons on its banner, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation: that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance" (Psalms 83:5) it becomes, thereby, Amalek. In the 1930's and 1940's the Nazis, with Hitler at their head, filled this role. They were the Amalekites, the standard-bearers of insane hatred and enmity during the era just past. Today their place has been taken over by the mobs of Nasser and the Mufti. If we are silent now as well, I know not the verdict that will be issued against us by the God of justice. Do not rely on the "liberal" world's sense of equity. Those same righteous liberals were around fifteen years ago, and they looked with indifference upon the extermination of millions of people; they did not lift a finger. If, heaven forbid, yet a second spectacle of blood were to take place before their very eyes, it is likely that they would not even lose a night's sleep over it."
