The Prayer for the State of Israel~[התפילה לשלום המדינה]

Once again our tiny country is being attacked physically and in the media. More than ever we Pray to Hashem to Bless our young men and women of the IDF, and deliver us from our enemies.

Before the founding of the state of Israel, Jews said a prayer for the nation in which they lived (usually after the haftorah reading~this varies). In 1948 the Chief Rabbinate of Israel published the Prayer for the State of Israel, which has since been used by most (but not all) communities.

The video (see below) of this beautiful prayer was made (in June 2011), by a member of the Israel Defense Forces. Accompanied by child soloist Micha Schachat, the S.F.Y. Philharmonic Orchestra & Choir conducted by Dr. Mordechai Sobol, IDF Chief Cantor, Lt. Col. Shai Abramson recorded  The Prayer for the State of Israel at Eshel Studios in Tel Aviv.

Watching this video makes me teary-eyed. I love my country Israel, and the members of the Israel Defense Forces who face daily danger, even as they are consistently vilified in the world press. Our IDF is so much more than tough, brave fighters, ready to defend us with their lives. They are vibrant, talented people with a love for Eretz Yisroel, and a soul from Hashem. I pray daily for the safety of the IDF and for peace on Israel.

Here is an English translation of the Chief Rabbinate's traditional (1948) version:
Our Father in heaven, Protector and Redeemer of Israel, bless the State of Israel, the dawn of our deliverance. Shield it beneath the wings of Your love; spread over it Your canopy of peace; send Your light and Your truth to its leaders, officers, and counselors, and direct them with Your good counsel.

Strengthen the defenders of our Holy Land; grant them, our God, salvation and crown them with victory. Establish peace in the land, and everlasting joy for its inhabitants. Remember our brethren, the whole house of Israel, in all the lands of their dispersion. Speedily bring them to Zion, Your city, to Jerusalem Your dwelling-place, as it is written in the Torah of Your servant Moses:

“Even if you are dispersed in the uttermost parts of the world, from there the Lord your God will gather and fetch you. The Lord your God will bring you into the land which your ancestors possessed, and you shall possess it; and God will make you more prosperous and more numerous than your ancestors.”

Unite our hearts to love and revere Your name, and to observe all the precepts of Your Torah. Speedily send us Your righteous Messiah of the House of David, to redeem those waiting for Your salvation. Shine forth in Your glorious majesty over all the inhabitants of Your world. Let everything that breathes proclaim: “The Lord God of Israel is King; His majesty rules over all”...Amen...Selah.

Hamas' Claims: True or False?

Part 4~An Inside Look At Islam's Takeover of Europe

In this final (4th) segment on Islam's Takeover in Europe, Zvi Yehezkeli, an Arab affairs news correspondent for Israel´s Channel 10 TV, speaks with Jews living in cities across Europe.

To film this shocking 4-Part series on Islam's Takeover of Europe, Yehezkeli placed himself in very dangerous situations. It is clear that if those he spoke to knew he was a Jew, his very life would be at stake. More than that, since the documentary has aired, he is now known in the Muslim world for his ability to infiltrate.
A look into the Jewish communities reveals the majority live in fear~of being Jews. The hatred that is spewing from all corners of Europe and directed towards Jews is something that is almost unbelievable~Yet, Here It Is~on film, in their own words. 

The situation in Europe has reached the point where one must wonder if it can ever be turned around. There are those who say that it is too late...The Muslim community have abused freedom and democracy while implementing fear and aggression to impose anti-semitism every place they go.

The fact that the rhetoric they are spouting consists of lies means nothing. Those who hate do not want to hear the truth. Even the police hesitate to defend Jews. Not since Nazi Germany has such evil risen up.

Links to the first three segments are below this video. I urge everyone to watch this final of four segments "carefully". This is what happens when "good people do nothing".

Do You Remember Where Your Freedom Comes From?

November 11th is  "Remembrance Day"

I decided to bump an old post~first, when I saw the above picture, and second, even though I am not American, I get emotional every time I see such unswerving devotion to the fallen. This is a true symbol of respect

*** The above picture is from Arlington Cemetery at the Tomb of the UnknownsThese young men stand guard in all types of weather~including Hurricane Sandy~as they have done, continuously, 24/7 since 1930!

Sadly, each year, fewer people identify with the "Day of Remembrance"; attend the ceremonies to honour the fallen or acknowledge the diminishing group of "old soldiers" who come every year to stand (or sit) and pay tribute. In fact, there is a growing number of lowlifes who deliberately desecrate the memory of those who deserve only the highest respect. I refuse to give print space, but suffice it to say, they flood into "free" countries, then take advantage of Freedom and Democracy to desecrate the memories of the brave while demanding that we submit to their primitive, barbaric ways. We Will NEVER Submit!

My original post was prompted by an email circulating about Jeopardy~a program on American TV~where contestants win money by answering skill questions. One night, the final question was:  "How many steps does the guard take during his walk across the Tomb of the Unknowns". All three contestants missed it! I admit, I also did not know the answer, so I did some searching and found the following...Do read the questions and answers. Don't Ever Let Anyone Desecrate these Memories!
1] How many steps does the guard take during his walk across the tomb of the Unknowns and why?
The Steps alludes to the twenty-one gun salute which is the highest honor given any military or foreign dignitary.

2] How long does he hesitate after his about face to begin his return walk and why?
He hesitates for twenty-one seconds for the same reason as answer number one.

3] Why are his gloves wet?
His gloves are moistened to prevent his losing his grip on the rifle.

4] Does he carry his rifle on the same shoulder all the time and, if not, why not?
He carries the rifle on the shoulder away from the tomb. After his march across the path, he executes an about face and moves the rifle to the outside shoulder. 

5] How often are the guards changed?
Guards are changed every thirty minutes, twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year.

6] What are the physical traits of the guard limited to?
* For a person to apply for guard duty at the tomb, height must be between 5' 10" and 6' 2" and his waist size cannot exceed 30".  

* They must commit two years of life to guard the tomb, live in a barracks under the tomb, and cannot drink any alcohol on or off duty for the rest of their lives.

* They cannot swear in public for the rest of their lives and cannot disgrace the uniform or the tomb in any way.  

* After two years, the guard is given a wreath pin that is worn on their lapel signifying they served as guard of the tomb. There are only 400 presently worn. 

* The guard must obey these rules for life~or give up the wreath pin.  

* The shoes have specially made "thick soles" to keep heat and cold from their feet.

* There are metal heel plates that extend to the top of the shoe in order to make the loud click as they come to a halt.

* There are no wrinkles, folds or lint on the uniform. Guards dress for duty in front of a full-length mirror.

* The first six months of duty a guard cannot talk to anyone nor watch TV. All off duty time is spent studying the 175 notable people laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery. A guard must memorize who they are and where they are interred. Among the notables are: President Taft, Joe Lewis {the boxer}, Medal of Honor winner Audie L. Murphy (yes, the Actor) who was the most decorated soldier of WWII.

* Every guard spends five hours a day getting his uniforms ready for guard duty. 
In  2003 as Hurricane Isabelle was  approaching Washington, DC, the US Senate/House took two days off with anticipation of the storm. On the ABC evening news, it was reported that because of  the dangers from the  hurricane, the military  members assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb  of the Unknowns were given permission  to suspend the assignment. They respectfully declined the offer, "No way, Sir!" Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that  guarding the Tomb was not just an assignment, it was the highest honor that can be afforded  to a service person. In this manner, The  Tomb of the Unknowns has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930! We from democratic countries should be very proud of all the young men and women who serve to preserve our rights and freedoms no matter where they are. If you can't make it to Arlington, then do watch the clip below. It is truly amazing! 

Eternal Rest Grant Them O Lord and Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon Them...Amen 

Remembrance Day~NEVER Forget!!

Take Time To Thank Those Who Sacrificed to Give Us Freedom!

Part 3~An Inside Look At Islam's Takeover of Europe

What happens when an Arabic-speaking Israeli~whose appearance and flawless Arabic accent are sufficient to allow him to mingle freely with the Muslims~pays a visit to several "Muslim No-Go Zones" in Sweden, France, Belgium, Holland and London?

Two Israelis decided to do just that...

In Part three of this four part series we see the chilling truth. Europe is losing the war on freedom. Slowly, slowly, Islam is creeping into the free world. Slowly, slowly, Islam is demanding that the majority conform to their minority. What they cannot achieve by smiles and taqiyya they will achieve by threats, terror and murder. Sadly, a generation of politically correct appeasers is leading us into the dark ages!

This is a series that needs to be seen by everyone! To deny that there is a growing problem is to surrender. Muslims are willing to die to implement Islam and Sharia worldwide~the west is not even willing to protest....

Foul and Disgusting...

There are innumerable campaigns going on around America right now, but this one is so foul it deserves a mention. The story first came to my attention at Weasel Zippers. Do read it in full and follow the LINK HERE to the full article. 

There are many disturbing angles to this story. One is that such a person as JZ Knignt is actually able to meet with Obama and other politicians (seemingly all Democrats). Also is the fact that she has clearly been operating for quite some time~and nobody questions this? Even more so, is the fact that she is garnering an audience of young adults who will be shaping the future of America, as well as very young (underage) children (as seen in the video), who appear to be well on the way to being brainwashed! Wikipedia provides a bit of information, on Ramtha School of Enlightenment, including this little ditty:

Lessons in the School's compounds sometimes include wine-drinking, tobacco pipe smoking and dancing on rock'n roll music. Allegedly, it is being taught that the nitric oxyde in red wine (not the alcohol) and also found in pipe tobacco (not the nicotine) can help to facilitate changes in the brain as a part of the process in which to achieve these means.
The comments at the second link claim that JFK Jr. spoke at Ramtha School of Enlightenment on more than one occasion. I am not going to discuss JFK JR. as he can't defend himself, but the video below makes it very clear that Sandra Romero did speak there, and she is running for re-election as Thurston County Commissioner, District 2. While she may be all "grass roots and apple pie", her association with this kind of cult should set alarm bells ringing!

That any public official in the United States of America could partner with such people is mind boggling. While the general consensus seems to be that the woman is a con, or a "snake-oil salesman", there is ample evidence to show that there is a very unhealthy atmosphere around her. I strongly urge anyone living in the Washington area, investigate these claims. and make your voice heard~Stop politicians from accepting money and meeting with this woman!

What Kind of Person Associates With a Cult?
