This Shabbat, the Torah Parsha Ki Tavo will be read in all Shuls. "... Because you did not serve G-d with happiness and with gladness of heart, in abundance of everything; therefore, you shall serve your enemies... "(28:47-48)
Because you did not serve G-d when you enjoyed happiness and the abundance of all good things, you shall now suffer want. (Rashi)
Not only did you sin, you did so "with happiness and with gladness of heart" -- for this the punishment is doubly severe. (Maayanah Shel Torah)
When Jewish brothers and sisters do not perceive any positive reason for living as a Jew, the net result is self hatred and admiration for others which includes haters of Jews. The organization J Street, personifies self hate in the collective.
J Street, the pro-'peace', pro-"Palestinian" lobbying group or State Department creation is having a conference this October that will feature a wide range of speakers -- from Salam Al-Marayati, the executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council to Bernard Avishai, author of The Tragedy of Zionism and The Hebrew Republic reported in the New York Times: and Eli Pariser the former director of MoveOn.org. . But the appearance of Salam Al-Marayati ought to raise a few eyebrows. He is an apologist for "Palestinian" terrorism and he pointed the finger at Israel for the murder of 3,000 Americans on 9/11 just hours after the Twin Towers fell. His quote, as it was
You can read more comments from Al-Marayati here, courtesy of the ZOA.
''If we're going to look at suspects, we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what's happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies.''
Another featured speaker, Bernard Avishai adds an interesting spin to the 'One State Solution' . Given the deep roots of Israel’s democracy question, how, then, can the country be “brought up to code”? Avishai outlines the requisite process: Israel must withdraw from the West Bank and recognize a Palestinian state that will enjoy a federal arrangement with it; privatize all public land, repeal the Law of Return, and disband the state’s religious apparatus; and enact a formal constitution mandating a single standard of citizenship based on residency and minimal literacy in Hebrew. Certain accommodations for the Jewish majority might remain in place—a Saturday day of rest, landed-immigrant status for refugees from anti-Semitism, the Star of David as one state symbol among others—but in most key respects the country would be a secular democracy like any other. Generally speaking, this program resembles the one advocated by fringe elements of the Israeli Left and its Diaspora apostles, with their call for redefining Israel as a “state of all its citizens.”
Bernard Avishai has, indeed, nothing to say about the Jews’ historical association with the land of Israel going back to the Bible, or about the specifically Jewish ideas that informed the Zionist calculus. When he talks about anti-Semitism (“allegedly still found in Gentile countries”), he is at pains to minimize its existence or to define it as another propaganda tool in the arsenal of Zionists who have “counted on Gentile majorities to make Jewish minorities feel, if not illegal, then vaguely unwelcome.” He is also capable of blaming anti-Semitism on the Jews themselves: both the recent calls in the West for boycotting Israeli academic institutions and the steady sale among Arabs of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion must be seen, he says, in the context of “televised scenes of [Israeli] occupation over a period of 40 years.”
Another featured speaker is Eli Pariser the former director of MoveOn.org.
This is what was online at MoveOn.org's Action Forum as of 17 September 2006
Note: the Action Forum links no longer work because the Action Forum is still "on vacation" (having been taken down for good in October 2006). It is easy to see why.
Tom Lantos a "whining, arrogant Jew"http://www.actionforum.com/forum/scores.html?comment_id=311900
Congressman Tom Lantos told PM Olmert of Israel that he wants to freeze the $ 230 million U.S. aid package to Lebanon. Lantos is the ranking democrat on the House Foreign Relations Comte. Lantos said, "The [Lebanese] aid package should be witheld until the Lebanese government displays responsibility". Responsibility ? Israel is guilty of war crimes in their cowardely attack on Lebanon and the whining, arrogant Jew wants Lebanon to demonstrate responsibility ! This is another example of how many Jews/Zioniosts in our Congress use the U.S. for their own greedy purposes. DUMP ISRAEL.

Why are the Jews so Jew-y?

U.S. and Israel are "war criminal states"http://www.actionforum.com/forum/scores.html?&comment_id=311762
Israel’s ‘UNINTENDED’ ??? collateral damage in Lebanon
Unintended for crisake. They bombed the whole country back to the Stone Age. It is A WAR CRIME for which Nazis were hung. If I were Bush I would not plan any European vacations.
Bush Goes Retro to Avoid Prosecution - by Paul Craig Roberts
When I was a kid, John Wayne war movies gave us the message that America was the good guy, the white hat that fought the villain. Alas, today the U.S. and its last remaining non-coerced ally, Israel, are almost universally regarded as the bad guys over whom John Wayne would triumph. Today, the U.S. and Israel are seen throughout the world as war-criminal states.
...President Bush maintains that Israel has “a right to protect itself” by destroying Lebanon.
Bush blocked the attempt to stop Israel’s aggression and is, thereby, equally responsible for the war crimes. Indeed, a number of reports claim that Bush instigated the Israeli aggression against Lebanon.
Bush has other war crime problems. Benjamin Ferencz, a chief prosecutor of Nazi war crimes at Nuremberg, recently said that President Bush should be tried as a war criminal side-by-side with Saddam Hussein for starting aggressive wars, Hussein for his 1990 invasion of Kuwait and Bush for his 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Under the Nuremberg standard, Bush is definitely a war criminal. The U.S. Supreme Court also exposed Bush to war crimes charges under both the U.S. War Crimes Act of 1996 and the Geneva Conventions when the Court ruled in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld against the Bush administration’s military tribunals and inhumane treatment of detainees.
…According to President Bush, the U.S. will lose the “war on terror” unless the U.S. succeeds in defeating “the Iraqi terrorists” by establishing “democracy in Iraq.” Of course, insurgents resisting occupation are not terrorists, and there were no insurgents or terrorists in Iraq until Bush invaded. [Michael Moore’s position, the terrorists who are murdering our troops with improvised explosive devices are “freedom fighters.”] …
