Dear Readers ...

If indeed you wonder why Isreal strikes back, here's my answer!

Dedicated to the Jews of the Israel Defense Forces who defend "artzeinu Kadosha"!


Remember this tale about which you hear ... of those struggling Jews who fell without fear ... who chose to die as men-not cattle ... for fate had determined ... they first do battle ... with the Hun at whom ... they did courageously fling ... all of the might of young David's sling.

Their foe ... a Goliath ...of thousands' times size ... from whom they refused to submit to the lies ... that they were weak and unworthy, unable to rise ... though blinded by hate, they aimed straight for his eyes.

Never before had there been seen such daring ... from young women and men all of whom caring ... for the dignity of those for whom they fought .... such were the lessons history had taught .... that the Jew stood alone, friendless, against foe ... counting his days ... tormented by woe ... His task ... to prove though troubled by pain ... the odds at Masada had not been in vain.

For three splendid months ... the struggle did not cease ... neither side desiring peace. For that meant 'surrender', an unthinkable word .... from the sewers of Warsaw there could still be heard: the cries, the anguish, the torture within ... ferreting out their captives the Nazis whose grin ... was evidence that they had acted with glee ... when stifling the attempt of people to be free.

Cords of log-bodies stacked just the same ... secular and religious none to blame. For there was NO difference before the Hun ... the Jews for him were decidedly ONE! ... whether armed or with prayer, they met their end ... though futile struggle 'twas not ... Kiddush HaShem.

Our duty to those whose fate we survived ... is in working to keep their memory alive. I ask ...
Why a people ... whose destiny has been ... to enlighten a world through darkness and din ... whose lives are as many as they have been few ... remain despised the children of Avrum Avinu? ... For what 'good' reason is he chosen to die? ... why gone unnoticed the tear in his eye? ... has he not suffered ... while the world stands by .... why have we not ever heeded his cry? ... Is there really a difference ... that makes him seem strange ... as if the same blood did not course through his veins?... Does he not laugh, cry and feel just as you? ...How such a threat when he numbers so few?

Threatened with death ... should he adhere to his ways ... terrorized by chimneys above which rose haze ... searchingly hopeful ... in whose starry gaze ... reflect the faggots whose fires roar ablaze ... Why did none stop it once it was known? ... Enough indifference haven't we sown? ... Praying to the heavens they did every day ... "Ana HaShem" ... may there be planes flying our way ... please god, bombardment should take us ... ere the chambers would ... but, the Allies, one and all, denied they could ... destroy the rails leading straight into Hell ... from which precious few reemerged to tell ... of the horrors awaiting them .. ... so hard to believe ... that neither kindness nor life ... did the arrivals receive.

The children, too, thrust into the pit ...enraged blood lust ...into its infernal fit ... that even the babes whose potential so great ...should have felt the steel of this magnificent hate ... whose cries were heard ... but listened to none... whose heads fell limp with the snap of a gun ... whose parents ... God forbid! ... they Saw as naked as they ... for it was like this ... that they suffered that day.

There are those who challenge ... what we have to say ..."does such a retelling remains relevent today?" ... That somehow, it's past, gone. just let it be! ... why do you make us suffer to see ... the killings, the children, the mountains of bone ... the chambers transformed so many to stone! ... who dropped like logs when the doors were thrown wide, there simply had been ... no place to hide ... mothers whose skirts offered refuge at least ... little ones uncovered .. fed the insatiably fiery feast .... "Of what use" it was queried, ... "could they possibly be" ...in a stench wherein no one was happy or free?"

Ne'er a glimmer of hope ... would the murderers give ... to those whose sole wish ... was only to live ...Mothers from children .... families asunder .... might others have withstood this fury and thunder? ... Slave labor was needed to further the 'cause' ...to build V-2 rockets ... to sharpen the claws .... For such, 'noble' men, doctors by fame ... were employed to brutalize ... murder ... and maim .... so that 'Science' could learn .... when life was so cheap ... discarded mankind onto the heap.

'Great' governments had met ... in order to be ... as pious as possible... but deaf to the plea ... of the wandering Jew whose torment to see ... how unwelcome he was in the 'Land of the Free' ...The ship onto which ... so many had stormed ... could not find refuge for opinion had formed ...that the Jew was expendable, a nuisance, a thorn... upon whom fate had abandoned ... its contemptuous scorn.

They made it to America these "tired and poor" ... to discover Liberty's spark shone little more ... that, for them, there was not room enough to remain... what hopes they had cherished ... alas! ... were all now in vain!

Dejectedly they limped ... back to the place ... which had expelled them at first ... for the same lack of space ...Stripped naked and paraded ... for the world to see ...what sickness had afflicted modern Germany?

Once active and vigorous this citizenry ... now wandering about quite aimlessly ... It didn't take long for the nazis to see ... the world cared less for these Jews to be free ... A 'final solution' ... would quicken the pace ... guarenteeing mastery to the 'Aryan' race ... No longer at issue either sufferance or claim ..., onto Jewry was placed the burden and blame ...

To repair the world .... there first must needs be ... a point at which we accept responsability ... for right against wrong .... fiction from fact ... a basis upon which ... we can responsibly act.

but why even bother ... so distant from then ... what more do we gain ... what message we send?
For the sake of' the children ... if not for our own ...and for them whose lives ... we
might
otherwise
have
known ...

Hi. I am wondering what you think about the fact that the IDF shit in my washing machine and all over my home in South Lebanon.

Is this a Jewish ritual cleansing or just a hate crime?

Disgraceful apologism and really, people like you are as guilty as those who flew the planes that destroyed Lebanon.

Go back to New Jersey.
