From North Korean ICBMs to the Las Vegas Mass Shooter

hamas-rally.jpeg

What do North Korean ICBMs and the Las Vegas mass shooter have in common?


They both target the masses for the maximum fatality count.


North Korea was shown targeting a nuclear attack on major U.S. cities–including San Diego, Austin, Washington DC, and the islands of Hawaii. 


The Las Vegas shooter last night targeted a concert crowded with fans to let loose his automatic rifle killing at least 59 and wounding 527 in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.


How about the Boston Marathon bomber that killed three and wounded 260 at the crowded finish line?  


We are living in dangerous, dangerous times. 


And being in a crowd can seriously get you killed. 


Honestly, does it take a genius or a madman to target a large gathering to inflict great pain on the enemy?


Honestly, who hasn’t wondered why we don’t target the terrorists groups and rogue terror nation states–whether Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, Al-Qaeda or Axis of Evil Iran and North Korea–when their militants are violently rallying, burning the American flag, chanting death to the USA, and boldly and defiantly raising their assault rifles high into the air. 


Why do we prefer to go after onesies-twosies in a virtual never ending battle to try and stop the terrorists of the day before they hit our cities and people again, when instead we can take out the evil bunch in more or less one fell swoop and send a no nonsense deterrent message. 


Are we too moralistic to do it to them before they do it to us and we have hundreds of thousands or millions of dead?


I’m not suggesting hitting innocent civilians, but how about an armed, military parade with tanks and missiles or a bunch of crazed terrorists just building up their gumption to do their next dirty massacre against masses of innocent men, women, and children.


The bad guys aren’t asking any questions before they hit the World Trade Center or the Pentagon or London or Paris or Tokyo or Jerusalem with guns, knives, bombs, vehicular attacks or even attempted WMD–maybe we shouldn’t ask too many questions before we invoke “fire and fury” on their evil ranks and protect our own once and for all. 😉

Those Were The Days

Karate 2.jpeg

Wow, this was incredible.


Check out this photo of me (right) and my teacher and mentor Robert doing martial arts back in the day. 


This was at the Jewish street fair on Johnson Avenue in Riverdale, New York. 


Recently, in the last few weeks, I reconnected with Robert after almost 27 years.  


He made Aliyah to Israel and I got married, but I always remembered how much I learned from him and the fun times growing up. 


It was great to catch up on the phone with him for about 2 1/2 hours and I think we could’ve gone on schmoozing all evening. 


Then just this weekend, I received 3 large wall photos in the mail from a friend from Riverdale–out of the blue–just like my reconnecting with Robert. 


Both events came almost simultaneously after 3 decades!


Time and space are just fabrications, as G-d Almighty is eternal, and for me I am essentially the same person that I was back then. 


My body is getting (a little) older, but my inner self is still me. 


And the people who mean so much to me in my life, after G-d, that is everything to me. 😉

Calling BS on Germany’s BDS

Guns.jpeg

So I think this is the definition of irony and more blatant anti-Semitism out there. 


Hitler’s Germany committed genocide and murdered 6,000,000 Jewish men, women, and children during the Holocaust–1 out of every 3 Jews in the entire world–and killed tens of millions more in their fight of World War II. 


And now one of Germany’s top gun manufacturers, Heckler and Koch, has put democratic Israel, the Jewish Homeland, which is surrounded by hostile neighbors–on their banned list of countries to sell guns to because of war zones and corruption. 


— Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black???


BDS is anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism, and a form of terrorism!


My own family–from Germany–suffered at the hands of Hitler and his henchman, and no more Jews should suffer the same. 


Germany, please put a lid on resurgent anti-Semitism, and respect Israel’s right to self-defense, and to peace and security.

Ever Feel Like You’re Target Practice

Target.jpeg

Thought this was really spot on.


The knives get sharpened and readied. 


At some point, they come flying out of nowhere. 


Often, from all directions at the same time.  


When it rains, it pours. 


Some people latch on to the opportunity to try and make a kill. 


You do your best to duck this way and that and survive the onslaught.


Hopefully, you were adequately prepared. 


The big question is–can you hold unto your cheese?

Bad Boyz

Sword.jpeg

Bad boyz, bad boyz what you gonna do?


When the bad boyz come to hurt the girls.


The bad boyz better watch out. 


Feminism is alive and well. 


Women are individuals full of rights and fights. 


No one will take away what is theirs by G-d given creation of their soul and body. 


Whoever tries to is destined to the dustbins of history. 


Bad boyz, bad boyz…better recognize that women are people too.


And they are smart, resourceful, powerful, and good. 


Sugar and spice and everything naughty and nice. 


911, 911, 911…take this bad boyz away.  😉

Easy Solution to Axis of Evil

Missile.jpeg

So there is an easy solution to the hellbent destruction of the Axis of Evil…


North Korea and Iran are sworn to the destruction of the U.S. and it’s allies. 


Repeatedly, they sponsor global terrorism, abuse human rights, violate agreements against proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, conduct nuke tests, and missile launches. 


Instead of destroying the missiles immediately upon launch or on the launchpad, which is a nice start…


Let’s just do this:


– When North Korea launches, let’s redirect the guidance system on the missile to Tehran. 


– And when Iran launches their missiles, let’s redirect it toward Pyongyang. 


We don’t have to fire a single volley. 


Let the evil ones destroy each other and have a gangbusters time doing it. 😉

North Korea and Iran–No Time For Nuke Time

nukes.jpeg

We are at a unbelievably critical moment in history. 


North Korea and Iran have nuclear weapons capability and are threatening and maniacal enough to use them. 


Negotiations, incentives, and phony deals have led to nothing but advancing proliferation of weapons of mass destruction with our enemies and their continued vows to kill us. 


As Iran vows to annihilate Israel and chants:

“Death to America”


North Korea vows a nuclear attack saying Washington will be:


“Engulfed in a sea of fire.”


The Talmud (Sanhedrin 72a) teaches the principle of self-defense:

“If someone rises up to kill you, kill him first.”


Preemption is justifiable if the threat is real and imminent. 


North Korea and Iranian threats are very real and getting ever more imminent as their capabilities increase–and if anything, they have been underestimated and underreported.


They have continued to build and test nukes and the missiles to deliver them to the U.S. and our allies, despite pleas as well as carrots and sticks to cease their menacing actions.


The prior administration’s position of “strategic patience” has meant nothing but indecision and a do nothing approach as things get worse and not better.


Now, we have the opportunity to destroy the deadly nuke sites before these despotic regimes hit us and our population of nearly 320 million people with a nuke first strategy!


We are a peaceful nation that believes deeply in freedom and human rights, but we cannot live under constant threat of nuclear attack on our cities and allies. 


A preemptive strike is a very, very serious decision, but we cannot wait indefinitely and let ourselves become victims of the most horrific weapons and their destructive capabilities and aftermath. 


What do we do if North Korea and Iran refuse their endless pursuit weapons of mass destruction and their threats to use them on us?


Perhaps, this is soon to be a rhetorical question if not the most dire of all decisions to make and the time to make them. 


May G-d have mercy  on us–if ever their was a time, now is the time to pray and mean it.  😉
