Aussie columnist encourages mea culpas to Zionists

"Australians should say sorry to Jews for our lack of understanding." Rowan Dean in The Courier-Mail Oct 1, 2017
IF YOU bump into anyone today who’s Jewish, do yourself a favour. Reach out, shake their hand and say “I’m sorry.”
When they look at you with a puzzled expression and say “but you didn’t do anything”, you can reply “I know. But I should have.”
You can add: “I should have done lots of things that I didn’t do. I should have stood in silence at the Sydney Olympics for a few minutes to remember the Israeli Olympic athletes butchered by Palestinian terrorists at the Munich games 45 years ago this month, but I didn’t.
“I should have been outraged at the slayings of Jews during the intifadas, but I was told it was their own fault.
“I should have wept tears of grief for Malki Roth, the young Aussie girl blown to bits along with 14 others in a pizza parlour, but it didn’t seem relevant. I should have been incensed when the murderess who organised that bombing was feted as an Arab TV celebrity.
“I should have been less critical of Israel’s settlements and more cynical about the Palestinian Authority’s refusal to agree to any peace proposals, but I condemned the first and merely shrugged at the second.
“I should have spoken out against the BDS campaign against Jewish businesses, but I figured it had nothing to do with me, so who gives a toss?
“I should have been more aware that what Israel has been going through for the past five decades is largely driven by the same fanatical passions and twisted religious fervour that now threatens shopping malls and rock concerts across the Western world, but I never joined the dots.”
Several things happened this month which shine a different light on how we in the West should view the Israel-Palestine “conflict”, and more importantly, how we should respond.
The other day, Norway’s Minister for Migration and Integration, Sylvi Listhaug – one of that country’s most popular politicians – linked terror in Europe to what Israel endures.
Speaking to an Israeli media outlet, she said: “We are experiencing now the fear that you have experienced for decades. Many people now understand the situation you live in. We see what is happening in Sweden, in Britain and in France.”
Ms Listhaug added that Europeans “need to understand the situation in Israel better”. This may sound like common sense, but it is completely at odds with the one-sided approach most European politicians and other nations instinctively take against Israel.

Yom Kippur: How to improve your fate for the New Year - with Rabbi Moshe Parry

Yom Kippur: How to repent & forgive- with other people and with God'- Rabbi Moshe Parry  teaches us about repentance and forgiveness protocols for Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement of the New Year.

Heaven obligates us to pursue forgiveness from others we may have offended- and for those recipients of sincere appeals- to grant forgiveness, wipe the slate clean, and start afresh in the New Year. Just how long do we have to atone in a way which will enhance our fate for the New Year? It doesn't end at Yom Kippur's Neilah prayer.

Rabbi Moshe Parry breaks his 6-month absence from YouTube to overcome his facial half-paralysis and deliver this message for atoning and redeeming ourselves through these acts now.


Judaism teaches that we can influence Heaven's forgiveness of our sins for the year though demonstrating charity, repentance, and prayer. These acts can alleviate the severity of His decree for our fate for this Hebrew New Year 5778, which we're only days into. 
In "Teshuvah, Tefillah, and Tzedakah: Alleviating the severity of the Decree," in Mark's BlogSpot:

"We are told that the proof text for this central assertion of Unetaneh Tokef comes from a verse in 2 Chronicles 7:14: R. Yudan [said] in the name of R. Leazar: Three things discharge the decree, and they are: Tefillah, Tzedakah, and Teshuvah, And these three are found together in a single verse: “when My people… pray,” – this is tefillah “seek My face,” – this refers to tzedakah, as it says: “and I, with righteousness (tzedek) will grasp Your face,” (Ps 17:15) “and turn from their evil ways,” – this is teshuvah- then, “…I will forgive their sins…” (Midrash Bereshit Rabba 44.)

Rabbi Moshe Parry encourages you (and your family and friends) to donate charitably to sustain the efforts of JewTube.Info, North America's original, Zionistic Jewish video news and information magazine. JewTube, in it's tenth-year, illuminates the quest for Jewish survival and dignity in a world of resurgent anti-Semitism. 

Please don't let the light burn out. Use this charitable opportunity to sustain JooTube's effort by making a one-time or (even better) recurring donation (via the icon in the right margin). May you and your family merit heaven's judgement for a year of good and health!

Where's the Jewish New Year's Parade? It isn't in Israel anymore

New York Police Band march in Salute to Israel Parade 2011
Parades are often used to celebrate a New Year, but they vary with culture. Roman Calendar parades, such as Paris, London, and Pasadena, are typically held on January 1st. Chinese Lunar New Year parades are held in February. Hindu, lunar New Year parades, like the Iranian Nowrouz, are usually held around early Spring.
This year, our lunar Rosh Hashana coincided with the beginning of Autumn. But Jews celebrate Rosh Hashana in synagogue praying, not parading. Instead of parading for New Years, Jewish-Americans hold a parade in New York City on the first Sunday in June, in honor of Israel's Independence Day (lunar calendar's 5th of Iyar). Other ethnic groups parade their culture through New York City streets, e.g., St. Patrick's Day Parade is essentially an Irish Pride Parade. The Columbus Day parade is like an Italian Pride Parade. 

So the Salute to Israel Parade (or as it has been called since 2011, the Celebrate Israel Parade) may be viewed as our Jewish Pride Parade. It's a rare opportunity to publicly express Jewish cultural identity- with police protection. And in the absence of a parade for Jewish New Years, to keep you in a celebratory spirit, enjoy a look at our original video from that first, Celebrate Israel Parade in 2011 (before it became politicized when Israel-boycotting pressure groups were welcomed to march).

This event honoring Israel's 63rd birthday was held on June 5, 2011. The video segments include comments by Israel Amb. Michael Oren, Rep. Elliot Engel, Rep Charles Rangel, Grand Marshalls Eugene Gluck (a holocaust survivor) and Joseph Sitt of Thor Equities- who is redeveloping Coney Island. Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren said that on this day, America's love for Israel is on display- and the Israelis should be aware of it.  NY's Channel 5 (Fox local) broadcasted the event live, co-hosted by Fox reporter John Huddy and Israeli actress and model Becky Griffin.

Jewish people from America, Spain, the Mid-East are joined by refugees from anti-Semitic discrimination in Europe. Colorfully costumed Bukharian and Russian Jews participate- with ethnic costume, music, and dance. Christian Zionists of Eagles Wings and other groups also marched to show their love of Israel. Barack Hussein Obama's administration ran US policy soft on Islamism, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other Islamist enemies of Israel.  Tens of thousands participated- see who (if anyone) you recognize.

Part 2- Parading Zionist-pride at the 2011 Celebrate Israel Parade in New York City. Many metro-NYC Jewish school kids create banners, flags, and even floats for a parade which celebrates Israel's contributions to humanity in religion, spirituality, science, medicine, the arts, and defense against jihadism.
The Chai-Riders Motorcycle Club close out the parade- with the vow of "Never Again" will Jew-haters prevail over the Jewish people.

On Friday, the 2nd day of Rosh Hashana outside of Israel, Iran held its own parade- of weapons including nuclear capable missile with a range far-enough to strike most of the Middle East- including Israel.

Fox News reports that
Iran's state-run, IRNA news agency quoted the chief of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s airspace division, Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, saying the missile “can carry several warheads for various uses.” "As it was observed, the missile has become smaller in size and more tactical and it will be operational in the near future," he told reporters on the sidelines of the parade.

Rouhani said at the parade that Tehran would not stop its missile program but instead boost military capabilities, despite U.S. demands. Rouhani also said Tehran would keep supporting the "oppressed people of Yemen, Syria and Palestine" — a reference to Iran's role in the wars in Yemen and Syria and its support for Palestinian militant groups such as Hamas.

Iran is a close ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad and has backed Yemen’s Shiite rebels against U.S. supported and Saudi-led coalition that sought to return the internationally elected government to power in Yemen. During Trump’s address to the United Nations Tuesday, Trump accused Iran of supporting terrorists and called Tehran a “corrupt dictatorship” and a “murderous regime.”
Israel used to hold military equipment parades, until after the Yom Kippur War, when it was determined to discontinue them. Israel relies on the Arrow 2 and Arrow 3 anti-missile programs to protect its public from Iran's ballistic missiles.

Israeli PM Netanyahu's address to U.N. General Assembly- full text

Full text of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to the UN General Assembly, September 19, 2017: (source: Times of Israel):  "Mr. President, ladies, and gentlemen, 

Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu addresses U.N.
General Assembly in New York, 9/19/17
"We’re in the midst of a great revolution, a revolution in Israel’s standing among the nations. This is happening because so many countries around the world have finally woken up to what Israel can do for them. Those countries now recognize what brilliant investors like Warren Buffet and great companies like Google and Intel, what they’ve recognized and known for years: that Israel is the innovation nation — the place for cutting-edge technology in agriculture, in water, in cyber security, in medicine, in autonomous vehicles — you name it, we’ve got it.

Full text of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to the UN General Assembly, September 19, 2017:
Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen,

"Those countries now also recognize Israel’s exceptional capabilities in fighting terrorism. In recent years, Israel has provided intelligence that has prevented dozens of major terrorist attacks around the world. We have saved countless lives. You may not know this, but your governments do, and they are working closely together with Israel to keep your countries safe and your citizens safe.

I stood here last year on this podium and I spoke about this profound change in Israel’s standing in the world and just look at what has happened since, in one year: hundreds of presidents, prime ministers, foreign ministers and other leaders have visited Israel, many for the first time.

Of these many visits, two were truly historic. In May, President Trump became the first American president to include Israel in his first visit abroad. President Trump stood at the Western Wall, at the foot of the Temple Mount, where the Jewish people’s Temples stood for nearly a thousand years. When the president touched those ancient stones, he touched our hearts forever.

In July, Prime Minister Modi became the first Indian prime minister to visit Israel. You may have seen the pictures. We were on a beach in Hadera. We rode together in a jeep outfitted with a portable desalination device that some thriving Israeli entrepreneur invented. We took off our shoes, waded into the Mediterranean and drank seawater that had been purified only a few minutes earlier. We imagined the endless possibilities for Israel, India, for all humanity.

In the past year, Israel hosted so many world leaders, and I had the honor of representing my country on six different continents. One year. Six continents.

I went to Africa, where I saw Israeli innovators increasing crop yields, turning air into water, fighting AIDS.

I went to Asia, where we deepened our relations with China and with Singapore, and expanded our cooperation with our Muslim friends in Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.

I went to Europe, where in London and Paris, Thessaloniki and Budapest, we enhanced our security and economic ties.

I went to Australia, becoming the first Israeli prime minister to visit our great allies Down Under. And just last week, I went to South America, visiting Argentina and Colombia, and then I went on to Mexico, becoming, if you can believe it, the first Israeli prime minister ever to visit Latin America.

After 70 years, the world is embracing Israel, and Israel is embracing the world. One year. Six continents. Now, it’s true. I haven’t yet visited Antarctica, but one day I want to go there too because I’ve heard that penguins are also enthusiastic supporters of Israel.

You laugh, but penguins have no difficulty recognizing that some things are black and white, are right and wrong.

Unfortunately, when it comes to UN decisions about Israel, that simple recognition is too often absent. It was absent last December when the Security Council passed an anti-Israel resolution that set back the cause of peace.

It was absent last May, when the World Health Organization adopted — you have to listen to this: the World Health Organization adopted a Syrian-sponsored resolution that criticized Israel for health conditions on the Golan Heights. As the great John McEnroe would say, “You can-not be serious!” I mean, this is preposterous.

Syria has barrel-bombed, starved, gassed and murdered hundreds of thousands of its own citizens and wounded millions more, while Israel has provided lifesaving medical care to thousands of Syrian victims of that very same carnage. Yet who does the World Health Organization criticize? Israel.

So is there no limit to the UN’s absurdities when it comes to Israel?

Well, apparently not, because in July, UNESCO declared the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron a Palestinian World Heritage site. That’s worse than fake news. That’s fake history. Mind you, it’s true that Abraham, the father of both Ishmael and Isaac, is buried there, but so too are Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca – Sarah is a Jewish name, by the way – and Leah, who just happen to be patriarchs and matriarchs of the Jewish people. You won’t read about that in the latest UNESCO report.

But if you want to, you can read about that in a somewhat weightier publication — it’s called The Bible. I highly recommend it. (I hear it even got 4 ½ out of 5 stars on Amazon). And it’s a great read- I read (from) it every week!

Ladies and gentlemen, a moment to be serious: Despite the absurdities, despite the repetition of these farcical events, there is change. Slowly but surely, there are signs of positive change, even at the United Nations.

Mr. Secretary General, I very much appreciate your statement that denying Israel’s right to exist is anti-Semitism, pure and simple. Now, that’s important, because for too long the epicenter of global anti-Semitism has been right here at the UN. And while it may take many years, I am absolutely confident that the revolution in Israel’s ties with individual nations will ultimately be reflected in this hall of nations. I say that because there is also a marked change in the position of some of our key friends.

Thanks to President Trump’s unequivocal support for Israel in this body, that positive change is gathering force. So, thank you, President Trump. Thank you for supporting Israel at the UN. And thank you for your support, Ambassador Nikki Haley. Thank you for speaking the truth about Israel.

But, ladies and gentlemen, here at the UN, we must also speak the truth about Iran, as President Trump did so powerfully this morning. Now, you know I’ve been ambassador to the UN and I’m a long-serving Israeli prime minister, so I’ve listened to countless speeches in this hall, but I can say this: none were bolder, none more courageous and forthright than the one delivered by President Trump today.
Pres. Trump delivers first speech to UN General Assembly

President Trump rightly called the nuclear deal with Iran, he called it an embarrassment. Well, I couldn’t agree with him more. And here’s why: Iran vows to destroy my country every day, including by its chief of staff the other day. Iran is conducting a campaign of conquest across the Middle East and Iran is developing ballistic missiles to threaten the entire world.

Two years ago, I stood here and explained why the Iranian nuclear deal not only doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb, Iran’s nuclear program has what’s called a sunset clause. Let me explain what that term means: It means that in a few years, those restrictions will be automatically removed — not by a change in Iran’s behavior, not by a lessening of its terror or its aggression. They’ll just be removed by a mere change in the calendar. And I warned that when that sunset comes, a dark shadow will be cast over the entire Middle East and the world, because Iran will then be free to enrich uranium on an industrial scale, placing it on the threshold of a massive arsenal of nuclear weapons.

That’s why I said two years ago that the greater danger is not that Iran will rush to a single bomb by breaking the deal, but that Iran will be able to build many bombs by keeping the deal!

Now, in the last few months, we’ve all seen how dangerous even a few nuclear weapons can be in the hands of a small rogue regime.

Now imagine the danger of hundreds of nuclear weapons in the hands of a vast Iranian Islamist empire, with the missiles to deliver them anywhere on earth.

I know there are those who still defend the dangerous deal with Iran, arguing that it will block Iran’s path to the bomb.

Ladies and gentlemen, That’s exactly what they said about the nuclear deal with North Korea, and we all know how that turned out. Unfortunately, if nothing changes, this deal will turn out exactly the same way.

That’s why Israel’s policy regarding the nuclear deal with Iran is very simple: Change it or cancel it, fix it or nix it. Nixing the deal means restoring massive pressure on Iran, including crippling sanctions, until Iran fully dismantles its nuclear weapons capability.

Fixing the deal requires many things, among them inspecting military and any other site that is suspect, and penalizing Iran for every violation. But above all, fixing the deal means getting rid of the sunset clause.

And beyond fixing this bad deal, we must also stop Iran’s development of ballistic missiles and roll back its growing aggression in the region. I remember we had these debates. As you know, I took a fairly active role in them. And many supporters of the nuclear deal naively believed that it would moderate Iran. It would make it a responsible member, so they said, of the international community.
Well as you know, I strongly disagreed. I warned that when the sanctions on Iran would be removed, Iran would behave like a hungry tiger unleashed, not joining the community of nations, but devouring nations, one after the other. And that’s precisely what Iran is doing today.

From the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean, from Tehran to Tartus, an Iranian curtain is descending across the Middle East. Iran spreads this curtain of tyranny and terror over Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and elsewhere, and it pledges to extinguish the light of Israel.

Today, I have a simple message for Ayatollah Khamenei, the dictator of Iran: The light of Israel will never be extinguished.

Those who threaten us with annihilation put themselves in mortal peril. Israel will defend itself with the full force of our arms and the full power of our convictions. We will act to prevent Iran from establishing permanent military bases in Syria for its air, sea and ground forces. We will act to prevent Iran from producing deadly weapons in Syria or in Lebanon for use against us.

And we will act to prevent Iran from opening new terror fronts against Israel along our northern border.

As long as Iran’s regime seeks the destruction of Israel, Iran will face no fiercer enemy than Israel.

Dodgers Jewish connection- the field, fans, franks, and the front-office

Brooklyn transplant, Phil Benjamin, tells Jewish friend L.A.-native Bill Silver,
before relocating in 1960, he spent his teens attending nearly all Brooklyn
Dodgers games at Ebbets Field prior to following the team to LA in 1960
by Scott Jacobs

During the 1940's and '50's, Brooklyn was one of the Jewish capitals of the world. 
Gerald Eskanazi, a former N.Y. Times sportswriter wrote in The Forward in 2011: "Sixty summers ago, almost to the day, the Dodgers of my Brooklyn were baseball’s greatest team. . . . And they were the most Jewish, even when they weren’t.

In my mind, the Brooklyn Dodgers paralleled the Jewish experience in America: Humble beginnings. Years of struggle. Being made fun of. And then, in the 1940s and early ’50s, attaining the mainstream. No longer an object of derision, but of respect."

After challenging the Yankees in the 1955 and '56 World Series' (victorious over them in '55) the Dodgers left Brooklyn for Los Angeles after the 1957 season.

"Yes, goes the saying, “It’s hard to be a Jew.” But, ah, to be Jewish and a Dodger fan — that is exquisite in its complexity."
Sandy Koufax gives Shawn Green tips at Dodger Stadium
- Gerald Eskenazi, "Sixty Summers Ago, Dodgers Dream Died for a Jewish Boy" The Forward, August 2011

The legendary boys of summer became the ghosts of Flatbush. Dodgers Sandy Koufax in the '60's and Shawn Green in the 2000's became the pride of Jews from L.A. to New York City. (Both even declined to play post-season games which fell on Yom Kippur). But after Green left for Arizona in 2004, Jewish fans had little visible representation on the Dodgers.

Not until new Dodger owners, Guggenheim Partners introduced Stan Kasten (and Andrew Friedman in 2014) to the front-office a few years ago, Jewish interest was revived. These star-player salaried ($ millions per year) helped manage the Dodgers into the post-season in 3 of the past 4 years. And this year, they're on pace to tie the M.L.B. record for wins in a season. And they just acquired Curtis Granderson from the Mets. 

C.M.O. Lon Rosen puts M.O.T., Dodger honcho, Stan Kasten onto JooTube
So while the live klezmer music playing before Dodger Stadium's Jewish Community Day last weekend may have felt haimish for their fans receiving Hebrew Dodger caps, for some of the front-office management- it seemed to feel like their simcha (celebration).
Joc Pederson, Dodgers' sole Jewish player, autographs for fans before the game

Before the game, we spoke with Dodgers' Chief Marketing Officer, Lon Rosen, who jokingly tried to interview Stan Kasten on JooTube. Pop-singer Elliott Yamin, whose father comes from Israel, sang the national anthem for the third time this season.  Klezmer musicians are clarinetist Leo Chelyapov, percussionist, Todd Tatum, and fiddler on the field, Mivan Miller. The Dodgers' publicity department provided us with a pre-taped interview of the Dodgers sole Jewish player, power-hitting outfielder Joc Pederson (born of a Jewish mother). Pederson speaks with pride about his playing on Team Israel in the World Baseball Classic in 2012 and his familial affinity for Israel, a destination he intends to visit as his brother did. 

The Jewish Community Day was also special in that group sales had brought so many Jewish fans to the stadium, that Jeff's Gourmet Kosher Sausages (in its second full season at the ball park) was expanded from its regular stand on Field-Level behind the right field scoreboard- to a second location- in the upper Reserve Section for just that day.

The ordinarily camera-shy Jeff Rohatiner spoke about his preference in mustards- and his hope, expressed by many fans, that the stadium establish at least one permanent kosher frank location for fans on a level above Field Level, closer to home plate. 

Chief Marketing Officer, Lon Rosen tells us that Yeshiva High-School graduate Stan Kasten was instrumental in getting the longtime hold-out Dodgers to satisfy kosher fans' requests to add glatt kosher franks at the stadium. We're wondering what's taking so long for the Dodgers to make hot-dog sauerkraut available at additional vendors around the stadium (as New York stadiums do) considering the fact, as interviewee David Geller reminds us, that Jeff's is closed for Shabbat Fridays and Saturdays, as well as on Jewish holidays- which come up this year during the regular season.

Let's hope that the acquisition of Granderson will make it easier should the non-observant Joc Pederson ask for days to not play on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, should he desire to do so. 

Lessons of Israeli withdrawal from Gaza on its 12th anniversary

Gush Katif residents attempt to resist I.D.F. withdrawal process in 2005
'Since 2005, JooTube has reported on Israel's withdrawal of 1,800 Jewish families from Gaza to show the world prospects of peaceful co-existence from both Israel and the Palestinian Muslims. Neither Gaza's Hamas, nor the Judea/ Samarian P.L.O. kleptocrats (Mahmoud Abbas, Khaled Mashaal, Ismail Haniyeh, and Musa abu Marzook) have lessened their abscondable humanitarian-aid racket (generated through impoverishing their people, preaching irredentist jihad against the Jews, launching terror against Israelis to provoke retaliatory strikes, the damage from which they exploit to elicit more abscondable foreign aid). The news photos and video damns the Jewish state in international eyes, creating enmity towards Zionism, Israel, Jews which leads to prejudice, vandalism, and violence in the Diaspora. 

Joachim Schroeder, the producer of "Chosen but Excluded: The Hate on Europe's Jews" which exposes Palestinian financial corruption keeping UNWRA aid from the public, keeping the conflict alive- spoke with JooTube about European TV's reneging on airing his documentary and the reticence of it being shown by any European broadcaster. 

'Disengagement - a failed strategic laboratory experiment'

Gush Katif expulsion commander General (Res.) Gershon Hacohen calls to learn lessons from operation that expelled thousands of Jews.

Maj. Gen. (res.) Gershon Ha-Cohen  (Photo: Hagi Hoberman)
IDF Major General (Res.) Gershon Hacohen, who commanded the expulsion of Gaza's Jews, spoke with journalist Nechama Duweck on Army Radio on the 12th anniversary of the "Disengagement Plan" in which over eight thousand Jews were expelled from their homes. "The disengagement was a strategic laboratory experiment, one which worsened the security situation," admitted Hacohen.

Hacohen called for lessons to be drawn from the failed plan and noted that a similar withdrawal from Judea and Samaria would be as dangerous as the withdrawal from Gush Katif.

He said that the withdrawal not only did not improve Israel's security situation but worsened it, and not only did it not benefit Israel internationally, the withdrawal entangled the Jewish State in three Gaza Strip IDF operations.

Hacohen was asked whether in retrospect he would refuse such an order and answered that he opposes refusal because insubordination means an attack on the hegemony of the IDF over its soldiers. Despite the pain, he reminded the interviewer that the IDF "is a mechanism for protecting our existence" and suggested instead internalizing that uprooting Jews is a "catastrophe."

What peace would come to Israel through Washington's renewed attempt to create a state for Islamist Palestine? Israel Hayom published this analysis by Israeli Amb. Yoram Ettinger revealing "The P.A.- North Korean Connection.

... the systematic and elaborate ‎geo-strategic cooperation, since 1966, between one of the most repressive, ‎terroristic and anti-U.S. regimes in the world and the Palestinian terror ‎organizations, which have been systematically anti-American, role models of ‎international and intra-Arab terrorism, subversion and treachery. Similarly to ‎North Korea, they forged alliances with the USSR and the ruthless East ‎European communist regimes, collaborated with Iran's ayatollahs, fomenting ‎egregious systems of hate-education, incitement and repression. ...

According to the official newspaper of the North Korean ‎Workers' Party, the Palestinian Embassy to North Korea (one of only 24 ‎embassies in the country) issued a statement expressing Abbas' praise of the current and ‎previous tyrants for "devoting [themselves] to freedom and people's ‎happiness." Such praise reflects Abbas' own track record of hate-education, terrorism and violation of civil liberties, providing more evidence ‎of the nature of the proposed Palestinian state'" Read More

For 10 days beginning August 15th, 2005, Israelis and global viewers watched Israeli soldiers forcibly carry off the settlers. The events coincided with investigations into Prime Minister Ariel Sharon for fraud. At the time,'s Israeli correspondent Igal Hecht documented the events known as "the Gaza Disengagement." Hecht speaks with former residents about their experiences. Many remain unemployed and living in temporary housing. The Disengagement was supposed to bring peace, but the opposite occurred: Hamas took over Gaza, using it as a launching point for attacks on Israel.

It has long been interpreted that Israel's government never properly relocated the Gush Katif community families as a warning to not resist prospective withdrawal from Judea / Samaria for a Palestinian when it comes.

Dozens of families evacuated from Gush Katif in the summer of 2005 have yet to receive permanent housing instead of the prefabricated mobile homes that were built as a temporary solution. ‘We have encountered almost every possible bureaucratic barrier,’ one of the evacuees says, calling on the state to ‘conduct a serious self-examination.’ Read More

says Tanaz Golshan of Iranian-Jewish, "30-Years After"
Temples and cultural groups often buy tickets in blocks- which brings people (such as single females) who might not ordinarily come to a game on their own during the season. Iranian-Jewish group, 30-Years After is one such group, its members David Gobahar and Tanaz Golshan explained.

In an interview with JooTube in a prior season, the famous L.A. sports radio host, Vic "the Brick" Jacobs discussed the Jewish angles of his relationships with various Dodger players'- primarily centering around their dining idiosyncracies. (Ironically, Vic was diagnosed with stage three colorectal cancer in March 2017 and we wish him a complete recovery of body and spirit).

Jeff's Gourmet Kosher Sausages can be found in the Right Field Pavilion and on Jewish Community Day, also on the Left-Field Reserve, Level 31 above 3rd Base.

Trump celebrated reunifying Jerusalem in Israel's interest 50 years ago. When will Jews reunify in our own interest?

Old City 's Jaffa Gate prepares for the 50th (Photo: May Golan)
"President Trump's Trailblazing Pro-Israel Actions" by Rabbi Aryeh Spero in American Thinker May 24, 2017 

"During the last three days, Mr. Trump has made trailblazing and unprecedented gestures before the entire world demonstrating an unequivocal bond and affection for the Jewish people and for the Jewish State... 

In his visit to Saudi Arabia, while addressing the assemblage of those representing most of the Arab world, Mr. Trump declared words that previous leaders may have believed but were afraid, unwilling, or hesitant to utter. The President adamantly spoke to them about a State of Israel, a state that he admires... 

US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shake hands after giving final remarks at 50th anniversary event of the reunifying of Jerusalem (Photo: Ha'aretz)
This took great courage; but more so it demonstrated that for Mr. Trump Israel is a country with which he is proud to be associated with, and its recognition as a Jewish state is an incontrovertible basis for Arabic and Muslim participation in the goals of his administration and the contours of global reality."

Israeli political and defense commentator, Alon ben-David, Ch.10 Israel TV News, shares his view of Trump's (vs Obama's) evolving Mid-East diplomacy in exclusive JooTube.TV interview:  

Rabbi Spero continued: "There appears to be real friendship and affection, born of his regard for Israel as a land rooted in a righteous and sacred destiny. It is rooted in Mr. Trump's respect for those nations willing to stand up and stand out in the fight against the scourge of Islamic terrorism. Respect and affection, mind and heart. 

Mr. Trump was the first acting president to visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem, treating it not as simply an historic museum piece but with an immediate reverence and sacredness. It is obvious he believes in the Israeli narrative. He speaks of defending the Jewish people and the Jewish State, equating them within a singular destiny. Everything in his trip to Israel resonated and evinced respect, regard, and affection. 

Arab-expelled Jews counter Palestinian refugees' Nakba protest at Israeli Consulate

Anti-Zionist Muslims' and Leftists' beliefs, attitudes and intentions contradict peaceful co-existence alongside a Jewish Israel.

Southern California Muslims and Leftists staged an anti-Israel, "Nakba (Catastrophe) Day" outside the Israeli Consulate in West L.A. on May 15, and in Sherman Oaks on May 16th. The organizers promoted the events in advance on Facebook, drawing 30-40 demonstrators mid-day who drove from as far as from Orange and Ventura County 
to stand in West L.A. with flags and chants. 

 Jew would not back down to megaphone as weapon
With no counter-protest response from pro-Israel advocacy groups, the sole Jews, JooTube.TV and Harim Uziel's livestream attracted the attendance of four other passing-by area Jewish men. Palestinian protest leader, Tawfieq Mousa (who allegedly sucker-punched one of the Jewish men at an August 2014 anti-Israel rally at the Federal Building in Westwood) became unnerved by their arrival on the scene. When the Jews stood up to their attempts to intimidate the Jews, the sole policemen on the scene had to step into action and call for backup.

JooTube original newsvideo reveals Islamo/Leftists' irredentist aims at conquering the Jewish state to establish a demographically Muslim Palestine over Israel, and not a co-existing, Jewish tolerating state, as idealists seek to project. The video reveals activists rejecting and undermining Israel's continuation as a Jewish state. In fact, one of the demonstrators, Greta Berlin, proudly boasted of her leadership in the Gaza Flotilla movement. 

From "Nakbacide" by Daniel Greenfield in Sultan Knish May 16, 2017. 

Palestine entirely was designated for a Jewish National Homeland in 1920 
By July 1922, the British gave away eastern Palestine to become Trans-Jordan
"The revisionist Muslim history of Israel ethnically cleanses the thousands of years of history of the original Jewish inhabitants and a thousand years of persecution under Muslim rule. It leaves out the massacres and atrocities carried out by the Muslim invaders against the Jewish inhabitants in the 20th century, including the Hebron Massacre, and the Nazi collaboration of their leader, the Mufti of Jerusalem. Instead it begins and ends with Deir Yassin and angry old women holding up oversized housekeys and reminiscing about the good times they had massacring Jews. 

On May 15th ... Muslims in Israel chant and riot to protest their unsuccessful genocide of the minority indigenous Jewish population. It's hard to think of a more repulsive spectacle of historical obliviousness, than a regional majority responsible for multiple genocides dressing up as the victims because their invasion of Israel ended in a stalemate, rather than a genocidal purge of its residents. The Nakbaites were supposed to be the beneficiaries of a genocide to be carried out by the armies of seven Muslim nations. Instead they had to settle down in Syria, Jordan and elsewhere around the region. An easy thing to do since they are the same people, speak the same language and share the same culture. The difference between a Jordanian Arab and a Jordanian Palestinian is a few miles and about twenty-five years." Read more. 

Los Angeles is no stranger to Muslim violence towards Israel and her supporters. Six months ago, a British-Israeli survivor of Palestinian-terror, Kay Wilson traveled through the site of a Muslim's attempted massacre at the El Al Airlines check-in desk 10-months after the terror of Sept. 11, 2001. Six people were injured and 2 Jews were murdered. 

Ms. Wilson called to stop western funding of Muslim Palestinian religious enticement to terror against Christians and Jews. The Jews who came to counter-protest declared that despite the physical hostility of the Arabs, they are not afraid. "The days of the meek Jew are over." They hope that the pro-Israel establishment in L.A. and other cities prepare better to make a showing, because the photos and news in the mainstream and activist- press encourages the strength of anti-Zionist Jihad against Israel and Jews and Christians who support her survival.
