In 8 years of blogging, I don’t think I have ever written twice about the same topic in a single day–but today, I am appalled..
In 1984, Rev. Jesse Jackson (later the democratic Presidential candidate) referred to the Jewish people and New York as Hymietown.
Roll forward to 2014, and we have “senior administration officials” who have called Israel’s heroic Prime Minister Netanyahu a “Chickensh*t.”
In 1624, Rembrandt painted this beautiful work from the Bible of Balaam riding on the way to curse the Israelites.
The problem for him was that an Angel of G-d stood in his path–his donkey saw it, but not Balaam! (Numbers 22:21-39)
In Genesis 12:3, God says to Abraham: “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse.”
Of course, the Israelites have to be deserving of this and act according to G-d’s word and by a strict moral code.
For those who act shamefully, with arrogance before G-d, and unapologetically, and use their political platform to name-call, curse, and degrade Israel, no man ultimately needs to answer this, G-d provides the answer himself.
Kudos to House Speaker John Boehner for speaking up against this grotesque, “disrespectful rhetoric” unbecoming the leadership of the United States of America.
Congress should take up a vote unanimously condemning these disgusting, derogatory, Anti-semitic remarks–for those who bless Israel shall be blessed! 😉
