Repost: By the Way, To Begin The Discussion On Yeshua...

As I've made clear before, I believe Yeshua to be Mashiach. I do not find (for a lack of a better term) a One-in-Three, "Three In One", Pluralunity, or Trinity G-d to be in conflict with the Shema-- after all, both "Eloheinu" (from "Elohim") and "Echad" indicate plurality and unity-- e.g., "And God said: 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.'" In that context, I believe "us" to be G-d the Father, G-d the Son, and G-d the Holy Spirit. As for as P'rushi tradition, I see nothing wrong with it so long as it does not conflict with Tanakh. In the CJB Translation of the New Testament, from Romans 14: "5 One person considers some days more holy than others, while someone else regards them as being all alike. What is important is for each to be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 He who observes a day as special does so to honor the Lord. Also he who eats anything, eats to honor the Lord, since he gives thanks to God; likewise the abstainer abstains to honor the Lord, and he too gives thanks to God."

First Part Of My Rough Draft Of My Final Latin American History Paper


Santo Domingo de Guzmán as Ciudad Trujillo and Its Legacy Thereas
To state the least, Rafael Leonidas Trujillo Molina inevitably and indelibly changed Santo Domingo de Guzmán and the rest of the Dominican Republic. From the Trujillista coup in 1931 to Trujillo’s justifiable murder on May 30, 1961; the Dominican Republic and Santo Domingo—then known as Ciudad Trujillo—received wounds from which will they will never heal, and the scars of those wounds which will never fade—at least not in this lifetime. At least according to Mario Vargas Llosa (among others[1]), “Generalissimo” Rafael Leonidas Trujillo Molina was a brutal, narcissistic, pedophiliac, and Self-Hating-Black[2] man who was perhaps-severely OCD or vain in regards to appearance, not good at being a dad, unfortunately skilled in abusing his training that was acquired with the U.S. Marines, and fiercely patriarchal.
Beginning by examining Trujillo’s ethnic self hatred and racism, one may well quote Vargas Llosa’s obviously-well-researched La Fiesta del Chivo (The Feast of the Goat)[3]. According to Vargas Llosa’s historical fiction novel, Trujillo unequivocally had exchanges such as this:
Hieratic and theatrical, the Generalissimo raised his hands and showed them to his guests:
“For the sake of this country, I have stained these with blood… [t]o keep the blacks from colonizing us again. There were tens of thousands of them, and they were everywhere. If I hadn’t, the Dominican Republic would not exist today. The entire island would be Haiti, as it was in 1840. The handful of white survivors would be serving the blacks. That was my most difficult decision in thirty years of government, Simon.”[4]
            His Black mother, Julia Molina de Trujillo, did not know that her son despised his maternal heritage to that extent, if she knew at all. She also probably had no idea that her son became just like his dad, and his sons became like their dad in turn:
Did she recognize him? Doña Altagracia Julia Molina was ninety-six years old and her mind must be like soapy water in which dissolved…She had always been a very good woman, this illegitimate daughter of Haitian immigrants to San Cristóbal, whose features he and his siblings had inherited, something that never failed to mortify him despite his great love for her. Sometimes, however,…he would think, mockingly: [Dominicans are] licking the ground for a descendant of slaves.” How was the Sublime Matriarch to blame for the black blood that ran in her veins? Doña Julia had lived only for her husband, Don José Trujillo Valdez, an easygoing drinker and womanizer…Congenitally frugal, Doña Julia would have continued to live in the modest little house…where the Generalissimo had been born and spent his childhood, or in one of the huts where her Haitian ancestors had died of hunger.[5]
            As stated, Rafael Trujillo became like Don José instead of Doña Julia, and his sons in turn became like him. As Don José was not a good dad, he was not a good dad; and his sons reflected that:
[“]The great mistake of my life has been…my children. Have you ever seen disasters like them? Their only horizon is booze, pesos, and fucking. Is there one of them capable of continuing my work? Isn’t it a shame that…Ramfis and Radhamés are playing in Paris instead of standing at my side?”[6]
            Trujillo imposed suffering on himself and his family within Ciudad Trujillo and San Cristóbal due to his racist self hatred and addictions to alcohol and sex. Trujillo imposed suffering on the rest of the Dominican Republic by starting with his heinous rapes of girls, including Urania Cabral. Urania Cabral partially describes her forced encounter with Trujillo as follows:
“Let’s go up, beautiful,” he said, his voice somewhat more thickened. “We’ll be more comfortable…I don’t enjoy being brutal to girls. I like them to enjoy it, too…”
“He was seventy and I was fourteen,” Urania specifies for the fifth or tenth time. “We were a mismatched couple…The grandfather and the granddaughter on their way to the bridal chamber.”[7]
            But since the time of Urania’s recounting was in1999-2000—2000 being when Vargas published La Fiesta del Chivo—; Urania must have been younger than 14—since she claims to be 49[8]—and was perhaps, at most, 11 years old. Urania was not the only victim of Trujillo’s pedophilia. Among other victims was 17-year-old Yolanda Esterel.[9] Yolanda must have been treated the same way as Urania was treated by the vain, appearance-obsessed, and perhaps-severely-OCD Trujillo[10]:
He looked at her with surprise and hatred, as if she were a malevolent apparition. Red, fiery, fixed, his eyes froze her. She couldn’t move. Trujillo’s eyes ran over her,…darted to the bloodstained spread, and glared at her again. Choking with revulsion, he ordered:
“Go on, get washed, see what you’ve done to the bed? Get out of here!”
“Get out, get out,” he said in a strangled voice. “Tell Benita to bring fresh sheets and a spread and clean up this mess.”
Trujillo had a U.S. Marine as an accomplice in all his brutal, narcissistic, pedophiliac, self-hating, vain, and fiercely-patriarchal work and bad parenting—and one would think that the 2012 Cartagena, Colombia scandal with the U.S. Secret Service was just as bad until he or she met this accomplice of Trujillo.[11] That accomplice was Simon Gittleman.

[10] Although to be fair to OCD sufferers (Czarnecki herself included), Czarnecki does not really want to credit Trujillo with having OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) in any way, shape, or form
[11] Unless the Colombian prostitutes were underage and forced into prostitution, in which case Cartagena-Gate would be just as bad as Trujillo’s dirty work. After all, both scandals involved betrayal and treason against the United States by government and military personnel.

Composed From Tweets and Facebook Statuses: Yad L'Achim, And Other Self-Hating Jews And Anti Semites....

I'll never get why some Messianic Jews dread groups like Yad L'Achim-- what can man do to us that G-d hasn't planned since before time? Meanwhile, I actively call for parties like Likud & Yisra'el Beiteinu to stop supporting & enabling groups like Yad L'Achim. I even once called & confronted Yad L'Achim in New York. They're just abusive control freaks. Don't let 'em get to you (Here, I'm talking to people like my friend who got mad at me for saying that she is Messianic. She doesn't want Yad L'Achim to know & attack her.).

I should clarify that I am talking about fellow Messianic Jews across the board, me sadly included, when I say that I'll never get why some Messianic Jews dread groups like Yad L'Achim. I get afraid. (I-- even I-- get dreadful of everything of rejection to persecution.). I was abused and persecuted by my Self-Hating-, Non-Messianic-Jewish dad. I've been there, done that, and come to realize that I'm going to get persecuted almost daily if not daily. But I'm not afraid of my faith or what people will do to me because of it-- not if I don't want to be, for "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." I'm even making aliyah if G-d wills, and I'm going to have a Hell of a time as a Patrilineal, Messianic Jew with a disability. 

know that Yad L'Achim is dangerous, but Yeshua stated clearly, "But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake." (Luke 21:12) I've received threats from people in the same vein, including Anti Semites. By the way, remember that Antimissionaries (Countermissionaries) and Anti Semites are ultimately in the same vein.



By the Way, To Begin The Discussion On Yeshua...

As I've made clear before, I believe Yeshua to be Mashiach. I do not find (for a lack of a better term) a One-in-Three, "Three In One", Pluralunity, or Trinity G-d to be in conflict with the Shema-- after all, both "Eloheinu" (from "Elohim") and "Echad" indicate plurality and unity-- e.g., "And God said: 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.'" In that context, I believe "us" to be G-d the Father, G-d the Son, and G-d the Holy Spirit. As for as P'rushi tradition, I see nothing wrong with it so long as it does not conflict with Tanakh. In the CJB Translation of the New Testament, from Romans 14: "5 One person considers some days more holy than others, while someone else regards them as being all alike. What is important is for each to be fully convinced in his own mind. 6 He who observes a day as special does so to honor the Lord. Also he who eats anything, eats to honor the Lord, since he gives thanks to God; likewise the abstainer abstains to honor the Lord, and he too gives thanks to God."

Composed From Yesterday's Tweets: Religion and Politics

Let's go over Right and Left one more time: Rightists want freedom, Leftists want restriction, and G-d states to be neither Right nor Left. ""Therefore you shall be careful to do as the Lord your God has commanded you; you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left." As if G-d didn't know about politics: search "right left" on Bible Gateway. Nonetheless, Yeshua does say, "I could wish you were cold or hot." (Rev 3:15b). So, we do need to lean Right or Left. So given Deuteronomy 5:32 and Revelation 3:15-16, we need to not be Far Right or Left but certainly need to have convictions.

Happy Israeli Independence Day

Today is Iyar 5, 5772. HaChodesh L'Iyar was sighted on April 22 at 7:24, according to Nehemiah Gordon. So, the P'rushim were, once again, a little off in celebrating Yom Ha'Atzma'ut-- they celebrated Yom Ha'Atzma'ut early. But to be fair, they at least celebrated the Day of Independence for Israel.

Is Matrilineal Jewishness Valid? The Answer Is...

Yes, but not because of the P'rushim is Matrilineal Jewishness valid. I should've at least saved my posts from one group that I was in with Asher Romero ben Israel and Adam Klein (who is not Nehemia Gordon's friend, as he stated, and clearly not my friend-- on his own volition), because I'm so damned lazy and don't really want to rewrite what I already wrote (Maybe I'm more depressed lately as well, thus more lazy. Anyway...).

First, let's begin with B'resheet 17:19-21:

19 Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him.20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.21 But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year.”

We see that Yitzhak had to have Sarah-- not anyone else-- as his mother and Avraham-- not anyone else-- as his dad (which is why, incidentally, I believe that some Kara'im argue that both parents must be Jewish in order for the child to be Jewish). We also see that Yitzhak was the first Yehudi:

22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise24 which things are symbolic. For these are the[d] two covenants: the one from Mount Sinai which gives birth to bondage, which is Hagar— 25 for this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children— 26 but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all. 27 For it is written:
“Rejoice, O barren,
You who do not bear!
Break forth and shout,
You who are not in labor!
For the desolate has many more children
Than she who has a husband.”[e].

Yitzhak was "born of the promise". We see that in this way, Yitzhak was the first Jew and that Patrilineal Jewishness is as valid as Matrilineal Jewishness. But let's get back to Matrilineal Jewishness. We've seen so far that the contribution of the mother cannot be left out (thus part of why I stated that  I believe that some Kara'im argue that both parents must be Jewish in order for the child to be Jewish). The contribution certainly was not left out in the cases of the young Dani of Mitzrayimi parentage, Hiram the king of Phoenicia and Huram his dad(? See Wikipedia for the dispute on this.), and Timothy HaYavani:



One more quick example; which is not Scriptural, nonetheless valid: Geraldo Rivera's daughter Sol. Are we to say that she is not Jewish because her dad's paternal granddad was a Spaniard and his paternal grandmother a Taino Native American? Is Sol then only a Spaniard of Taino and Jewish descent? To rule out Lillian Friedman Rivera's contribution and Erica Levy Rivera's contribution (which, by the way, makes Sol a Matrilineal Levit) would be entirely unfair and unpractical, especially since Sol is 3/4 Jewish.

With All Due Respect To Dr. Michelle Scott of University of Maryland, Baltimore County...

Firstly, your faith and "objectivity as a historian" cannot be separated. For, "As in water face reflects face, So a man’s heart reveals the man." (Proverbs 27:19) Furthermore, "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things." (Matthew 12:35) You can't separate a worldview for any other kind of view, and vice versa. Secondly, there is a class of undeserving poor men. "A lazy man buries his hand in the bowl, And will not so much as bring it to his mouth again." (Proverbs 19:24) Also:



But we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition which he[a] received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to follow us, for we were not disorderly among you; nor did we eat anyone’s bread free of charge, but worked with labor and toil night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you, not because we do not have authority, but to make ourselves an example of how you should follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 11 For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies. 12 Now those who are such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own bread.
13 But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good. 14 And if anyone does not obey our word in this epistle, note that person and do not keep company with him, that he may be ashamed.15 Yet do not count him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

(From 2 Thessalonians 3)

There are welfare queens, people who want to blame the White man and conservatives (including you, since you talk about a "conservative backlash"), and others who refuse to face that deliberate ineptness, sloth, and similar factors are what influence and cause poverty and even the supposed War on Poverty (which has been a miserable failure) to happen in the first place-- in other words, as I admittedly tweeted during class today, "Reaganomics may've worked if the "undeserving poor" & the Church did their jobs." 

Also in other words, we wouldn't even need a "War" on Poverty, which has actually been a death march to poverty-- and we thought that slavery and the Holocaust were over. Oh no: many Blacks and many of us Jews-- that is, those of us in the ghettos such as Crown Heights and Northwest Baltimore-- have enslaved and entrapped ourselves under the burdens of unneeded government entitlements such food stamps, welfare checks, Social Security and unemployment benefits, and other "safety" nets. 

Thus, in conclusion, you are serving only to perpetuate a self-imposed Holocaust (among Jews) and self-imposed slavery (among Blacks and others)  by being among those who blame trickle-down economics and Republicans instead of those who refuse to work for and feed themselves, and instead of the Church-- who has grown deliberately weary in doing good; and which supposedly, since you implied that you had a faith, includes yourself.

Does Jews For Jesus, And Do Similar Groups, Actually Proselytize? The Answer Is That...

They sometimes but rarely do. Let's first look at what proselytize means:


Definition of PROSELYTIZE

intransitive verb
1
: to induce someone to convert to one's faith
2
: to recruit someone to join one's party, institution, or cause
transitive verb
: to recruit or convert especially to a new faith, institution, or cause
— pros·e·ly·ti·za·tion  noun
— pros·e·ly·tiz·er  noun


Jews for Jesus does not intend to "induce someone to convert to one's faith" or "recruit someone to join one's party, institution, or cause"-- that is not up to them. "Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one? I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase." So goes the same for any other Messianic Jew and G-d, although Jews for Jesus does indeed intend to-- as they state-- make the Messiahship of Yeshua (Jesus) unavoidable.


When they proselytize is when they go into places where they're unequivocally unwelcome, unless they are called to go there by G-d-- but whether they are called is disputable as well. For, "when you go into a household, greet it. 13 If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.15 Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!"


Most haredim in haredi shtetlach are preconceivedly exclusive, private, and unwelcoming of Messianic Jews-- so why Jews for Jesus does enter neighborhoods like Crown Heights and Northwest Baltimore, unless invited, is one aspect of Jews for Jesus that I question.


In conclusion, Jews for Jesus (and similar groups) proselytize only when they go into places where they are clearly unwelcome and not called to go. Otherwise, they do not do or intend recruiting or inducing regarding Messianic Judaism.

Some Facts That You Should Know (Watch Me)....


  1. I'm not going to "get fat", as my mom's afraid that I might. I'm even going to lose weight this week.
  2. I'm going to "make it"-- by "make it", I mean "be rich and famous"-- and I could(n't) care less about the rich part.
  3. I'm going to impact lives somehow (and I'm not just saying that. People have told me that.).
  4. I'm a Jew, and I don't hide that I'm a Jew. I'm a Messianic Jew as well. 
  5. I can take your threats and epithets. Call me a "k***"; tell me that I'm a not a real Jew; tell me that I wasn't gassed, etc.. I'm so used to Anti Semitism and Anti Missionarism that I'm not even phased by your threats. I know who I am. I've done my homework, my research, and my Scripture reading. To find out that I'm Jewish, I looked at Ancestry.com, JewishGen, and other websites and other things-- and I enlisted the help of my Levi cousin Kevin Fosko-- shoutout to the Levshiks, even though they're his relatives. 'Am Yisra'el Chai!
  6. I'm related to some famous and aspiring-to-be-famous people (and some infamous people), but I don't  plan to use their names any time soon-- in other words, I'm going to make my own name in my own right.
  7. When I say and do what I say and do, I can usually back up what I say and do.
What else did you need to know about me?
