Targeting Israel: A Distraction From Real Threats

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “Targeting Israel: A Distraction From Real Threats.”

While the world unfortunately focuses again on Israel (a state the size of New Jersey), they continue to unfortunately be asleep at the wheel when Russia invaded Crimea and annexed it from a sovereign country of Ukraine in 2014, and again now in 2020 as China is taking critical steps that restrict freedom and human rights in Hong Kong.


The question is why we are constantly being diverted to blame and attack Israel and to not look at the real threats to world peace? Yet again, it’s another modern-day blood libel! While the superpowers play Risk with the world order, we should not be fooled by others trying to tell Israel what to do. Nothing should stop Israel from annexing the 30% of the West Bank under the Middle East Peace Plan that is vital to their lasting peace and security. Today is July 4th and the U.S. and Israel stand united in their commitment to that future.

When All The World Is Going Crazy

When all the world is going c-r-a-z-y…


The best thing you can do is stay CALM. 


– Calm is where good energy enters and bad doesn’t.


– Calm is where rational thinking gets done. 


– Calm is where positive action happens. 


– Calm is where our inner faith is sustained. 


– Calm is where we can inspire and lead ourselves and others to do good. 


Calm is where we all yearn to be. 😉

Holding Back The Tide

These rocks are holding their own against the tide. 


They are also standing the test of time. 


We all need to push back against the tide when wrong is pushing forward. 


Whether its corruption or violence.


Be like a rock!


Choose good over evil in every situation.  😉

Still Fighting For Our Rights

This picture about sums where we are in having to protest the same things we’ve been fighting for since the beginning of time:

I can not believe I still have to protest this crap!!


Just went you thought humanity (at least Western civilization) had mostly evolved past all the discrimination, biases, bigotry, prejudice, and racisms.


We arrive in time only to find out that HATE is still brewing in our societies and people’s evil hearts. 


What a shame–that we misinterpret what divides us as taking precedence over what unites us!


What a pity–that we misjudge people by the color of their skin, their race, their religion, etc. instead of by the worthiness of their deeds. 


What a disgrace–that we mistreat our fellow man simply because they are different from us and in the most superficial of ways. 


With all our scientific advances and technological progress, we are still in stone ages of the evolution of our humanity.  😉

A Neck Is Not Something To Step On

A neck is not something to step or kneel on. 


Justice for George Floyd!


Murder is murder. 


While I greatly respect and admire our law enforcement for the difficult jobs that they have, police brutality and racism is not something that can be tolerated. 


Our law enforcement is better than that!


Hold the responsible officers accountable, but also bring peace and civility back to our cities and streets. 😉

The Times of Mashiach

Truly, we are living in the times of Maschiach. 


Someone contacted me with a friend request on Facebook, and his profile included that he is a:

Torah-Observant Gentile


Wow! 


It’s truly like we say in the Aleinu prayer every day:

All Mankind shall invoke Your Name, to turn to You all the wicked of the earth.  They will recognize and know–all the inhabitants of the world—that every knee should bend to You…The L-rd will be King over the entire earth; on that day the L-rd will be One and His Name One.

We are on the way and I hope we all get to see and cross over the finish line soon. 😉
