Tr**p, Netanyahu, Modi, and Others...And Let's Just Focus On Tr**p & Netanyahu For Right Now

As for the case regarding Modi re Tr**p and Netanyahu, that'll come up another time—I haven't forgotten that Modi's a Hindi supremacist and Hindu extremist or that that's why Tr**p and Netanyahu. As for right now, I'm focusing on why the aspiring Neo ****** and Stalin that Tr**p is allies himself with Netanyahu.

As for Tr**p and Netanyahu:


  1. Both have a clear and vested interest in destroying Israel—that is, both the Jewish people and the Jewish state—the United States' strongest ally. In hardly-disguised-as-chiloni Netanyahu, RINO and CINO Tr**p has found a kapo—and the for-all-intents-and-purposes strip search at the Kotel all the more proved that. After all, what's a better way to try to turn even some Zionists against the (nominally-)Zionist State than by sexually molesting women simply for being women, let alone praying at the Kotel?
  2. Each wants to empower his respective group by demonizing whom he considers the undesirables, whom he would consider as the desirables were they not opposed to what he's doing, and what is known as diversity. 
  3. Each, respectively, wants to derepublicanize and dedemocraticize his state (Remember that the U.S. is a federal republic in contrast to parliamentary-supposedly-democratic Israel.).
  4. Both are racist, sexist, ableist, and Anti Semitic (with Netanyahu being a real self hater), and otherwise bigoted. By the way, a former rosh yeshiva has cited what Netanyahu is allowing Haredi men to do to deaf widows as one example of what's happening in Israel.
  5. Both had supremacist fathers: Tr**p had Fred Tr**p, and Netanyahu had Ben-Zion Netanyahu.
I could list more commonalities between Tr**p and Netanyahu, though you get the point—although there is actually one more commonality that I want to list: that both are democrats in the purest sense of the word. For instance:

  • Democracy was founded in Ancient Greece as a political system for free-born Athenian men. 
  • In the same way that the Athenians counted only free-born Athenian men—and especially the rich ones, prominent ones, and sycophantic ones—as citizens, Tr**p and Netanyahu count only their respective groups as citizens.
  • Women, slaves and former slaves, and slaves' and former slaves' descendants; and Non-Athenian men (free-born—including Spartan—men and their descendants, and slaves, former slaves, and slaves' and former slaves' descendants) did not count as citizens. In the same way, Tr**p counts only those whom fit his version of the Nazi ideals as citizens; and Netanyahu counts only those whom fit his and Agudat Yisra'el's ideals as citizens. 
  1. For Tr**p, only "Aryan" men and boys whom are Tr**pites are citizens, and Non "Aryans" whom are willing to support Tr**pism are counted as barely-second-class citizens if even citizens of any kind. 
  2. As for Netanyahu, only Haredi men and boys count as citizens, and Orthodox men and boys whom support the Netanyahu-Agudat Yisra'el chokehold on Israel may count as citizens or count at least as second-class citizens.
  • Tr**p is a Far-Left Democrat in actuality, and he even supported Hillary Clinton for decades. Netanyahu is the Haredi theocratic equivalent of that.
In conclusion, then:
  1.  Tr**p with his Neo ****** and Neo Stalin aspirations is a Netanyahu-supporting Tr**pite democrat, and 
  2. Netanyahu as a hardly-disguised Harednik and Anti-Zionist democrat supports Tr**p.
Both had supremacist fathers: Tr**p had Fred Tr**p, and Netanyahu had Ben-Zion Netanyahu.

Trust That Yehovah Will Rebuke Tr**p And Others In Time Because...

If for nothing else and as one can bet, plenty of people have committed suicide and otherwise died as a result of Tr**p's oppression—and such others include refugees and victims of Tr**pite-committed hate crimes. As He says in Tanakh through the Nevi'im, for example:

"For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue muttereth wickedness. 4 None sueth in righteousness, and none pleadeth in truth; they trust in vanity, and speak lies, they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. 5 They hatch basilisks' eggs, and weave the spider's web; he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper. 6 Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall men cover themselves with their works; their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. 7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, desolation and destruction are in their paths. 8 The way of peace they know not, and there is no right in their goings; they have made them crooked paths, whosoever goeth therein doth not know peace."
"1 Moreover the word of Yehovah came unto me, saying: 2 'Now, thou, son of man, wilt thou judge, wilt thou judge the bloody city? then cause her to know all her abominations. 3 And thou shalt say: Thus saith Yehovah Elohim: O city that sheddest blood in the midst of thee, that thy time may come, and that makest idols unto thyself to defile thee; 4 thou art become guilty in thy blood that thou hast shed, and art defiled in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused thy days to draw near, and art come even unto thy years; therefore have I made thee a reproach unto the nations, and a mocking to all the countries! 5 Those that are near, and those that are far from thee, shall mock thee, thou defiled of name and full of tumult. 
"Nay, but if ye thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye thoroughly execute justice between a man and his neighbour; 6 if ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt; 7 then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever. 8 Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit. 9 Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and offer unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye have not known, 10 and come and stand before Me in this house, whereupon My name is called, and say: 'We are delivered', that ye may do all these abominations?"
 Is the supposedly-Judeo-Christian United States compared to Israel and distinguished as Israel's strongest ally for nothing? To be fair, though, that's a scary thought given how the United States has not—for example—rebuked Netanyahu, Agudat Yisra'el, and the Netanyahu-Agudat Yisra'el coalition (e.g., Shas, UTJ, Yisra'el Beiteinu, Likud outside of Netanyahu) for human-rights violations against Non-Haredi Jews or against Arabs whom are not terrorists—and imagine, then, what supposedly-less-strong-than-the-United-States friends of Israel are like!


(The "Palestinian" terrorists are another discussion and, on the other hand, being deliberately dealt with by the Anti-Zionist Netanyahu-Agudat Yisra'el coalition as they are in order to confuse, divide, and cause Pro-"Palestinian" types and Arabophobic types to attack Israel from all sides).

In conclusion, then, Yehovah will not leave Tr**p and others whom are oppressive and in-name-only Philosemitic be unrebuked for long.

Netanyahu Wasn't "Bowing To" Agudat Yisra'el

He willingly kiboshed the agreement regarding the Kotel in violation of the Declaration of Establishment, and he has made clearly known where his loyalties lie. For the "Times Of Israel" and others to state that he caved to the Haredim is wrong and not holding Netanyahu accountable for turning Ben Gurion's mistake into Netanyahu's malice.

Netanyahu continues to show that he sides with Agudat Yisra'el—and their allies such as Shas and United Torah Judaism—and needs to be held accountable for deliberately trying to destroy the Zionist State in favor of a Haredi one.

Warning For Future Wikipedia Editors: Negatively-Cosmopolitan Bias Abounds

Anti-Semitic bias indeed does abound at Wikipedia, which also explains why other biases—including Pro-Haredi ones—abound—if you haven't been paying attention, start noting that Haredi (aka, "Hasid", "Chabad") = Anti-Zionist = Anti-Semitic.

If the Haredim and others had their way, Ramallah would absolutely be in "Palestine". As is, Ramallah rebecame a part of a refounded Israel 79 Gregorian years ago today; and the Haredi idea of who Moshiach is would've already come if Israel wasn't supposed to be refounded until Moshiach had come—and the Haredi idea of Moshiach hasn't come in any of the past 1947 years, has he?

Argument Summed Up: It Isn't About Israel vs. "Palestine"...

It's about Agudat Yisra'el vs. 'Am Yisra'el. What's already clear—and what even self haters such as Gideon Levy know—is that "Palestine", including Gaza—was long under Israeli/Iudean control before the Romans entirely took over Israel/Iudea and renamed it "Palestina".

What isn't as clear is that it's the Haredim—and the "Palestinians"—vs. 'Am Yisra'el—and the supporters of the Haredim, including Netanyahu and Likud, are obscuring the issue. The worst part is that even well-intentioned and in-denial people are playing into Haredi hands—after all, few (or at least relatively few) know (and fewer even want to know, let alone even try to research or somehow else find out) how Haredim and Netanyahu:


  1. Demonize all Arabs as Anti Semites at various levels
  2. Paint Non-Haredi Jews as self haters
  3. Believe that Zionism is treif drek—basically, secular trash ("secular" in a pejorative sense)
No wonder, then, that those whom expose (far-from-)"Chabad" Lubavitch and other (far-from-"Hasidi") Haredim are demonized as self haters whom want to destroy the Jewish people and the Jewish nation state—the Haredim want to cover their own tracks as they try to lure people in supporting the idea of a Haredi state which will be governed by whomever Mashiach is or is supposed to be in the eyes of the Haredim.

Until people understand that, the Israeli-Arab conflict will never be resolved.

I Wasn't Orchestrating Anything....And I've No Interest In a "Palestinian" State

As I said, I'm a non-leftist no-shame type when I speak about Netanyahu*. Now that Netanyahu admitted that he wanted a two-state solution, who's the Anti-Israel, Anti-American liberal now?


On Monday, Netanyahu, in the face of a seemingly deadlocked race, vowed there would be no Palestinian nation if he were re-elected, a seeming reversal from a 2009 speech he gave in which he backed the idea of a two-state solution. But Netanyahu's Likud Party ultimately triumphed, and on Thursday, Netanyahu seemed to dial back his remarks on the plan, which is a centerpiece of U.S. policy in the Middle East.

Remember that he tried to give 86% of the West Bank away? He unequivocally, by the way, "vowed [that] there would be" "no Palestinian state". So, 86% of the West Bank and no Palestinian State? More like "לא למדינת יהודית ללא משיח" ("No Jewish State Without the Messiah"). It's no secret: the same Agudat Yisra'el that affected ben-Gurion to be the Jewish von Hindenburg** are intent on, along with their "natural partner", destroying the current State of Israel***:


**One of the defining moments of the relationship of religion and state in Israel took place on the eve of the declaration of independence. David Ben-Gurion sent a letter dated June 19, 1947, to the political leaders of the religious parties (Mizrachi and Agudat Yisrael) making certain assurances concerning life in the future state.[19] Ben-Gurion promised that:
  • The future government will do all it can to make sure that the religious demands be answered concerning personal status issues, such as marriage, divorce, and conversions. The result of this promise was that the Chief Rabbinate has authority over personal status issues and religious law governs marriage and divorce. This agreement continued the policy established during the Turkish and British era.
  • All government-operated kitchens (army, police, hospitals, etc.) will have kosher food.
  • The Sabbath will be the official day of rest for Jews.
  • There will be autonomy in education and the state will not intervene in religious education but will demand and regulate a minimum curriculum in secular subjects such as science, grammar and history.
The status quo agreement was accepted with the understanding that the assurances given by Ben-Gurion could be altered with the adoption of a constitution, but that constitution never came into being, as described in another chapter in this anthology.[20] With no constitution, the “church”-state divide remained vague and the different political powers, secular and religious, constantly attempted to change the equilibrium.


***The ultra-Orthodox have not accepted the Zionist definition of the Jews as a nation in search of a homeland, and have remained faithful to the ancient definition of Jews as a religious community waiting for a messiah. In May 1912, some 200 Orthodox leaders from Germany and Eastern Europe met in Kattowitz (Katowice) to start Orthodoxy’s first organized response to Zionism, Agudat Israel, which still exists today as an anti-Zionist movement in Israel and as a lobby elsewhere. The ideologue of the movement was Nathan Birnbaum, a brilliant intellectual who collaborated with Theodor Herzl in the early days of political Zionism. He coined the term “Zionism,” and then became convinced that the secular definition of the Jews as a nation was inadequate, that secularization would lead to the disappearance of the Jewish people. Orthodoxy had to take a firm stand against Zionism, in the form of a political organization. Agudat Israel was Diaspora-oriented, and its center between the two World Wars was in Poland, where about one third of the Polish Jews were its supporters. It had elected representatives in the Polish parliament in the 1930s, and its delegates have appeared before international bodies, including the League of Nations and the United Nations.Historically, Agudat Israel has been opposed to the idea of a Jewish state, but the Holocaust deprived the movement of most of its constituency in Eastern Europe, leaving them more of a minority, less anti-Zionist and ready to accept the reality of Zionist success.
Since 1948, the party has been pragmatically involved in state institutions. It supports governing coalitions and is rewarded with ample budgets for its Orthodox schooling system. Agudat Israel accepts the state of Israel de facto, but judges it to be without the religious significance assigned to it by religious Zionists.

"Stand With Israel, Not Netanyahu"

Even I, a staunch Zionist who was already mad enough at Netanyahu and his Haredi Judaism which he attempts to disguise as Yahadut Chilonit, took a few steps back and thought:

If Netanyahu was largely passive while Arab citizens were being assaulted, he led the demonization campaign against the 47,000 African refugees and asylum seekers who entered Israel without permits. Despite reducing the number of refugees entering Israel to practically zero, thanks to the Sinai fence, he continues to lock up thousands of these desperate people – who, like our own Jewish ancestors, sought to escape persecution and poverty. Netanyahu’s policies flout Jewish values, and have been overturned multiple times by the High Court as immoral and unjustified. But they play well to his xenophobic base. 

Good points and reminders. In fact, I wager that some of the Sudanese and other refugees may even be Falasha and Lemba Jews who are making aliyah in what many would call an illegal way—and if any "illegal" olim are among the Sudanese refugees, the Government of Israel has no right to deny those olim ("eleh Kushim!") their taglit. Also, think about this: what if some illegal immigrants from Mexico, Guatemala, etc. are Anusim who'd make aliyah if Netanyahu and his yadidim let them? After all, they're not considered Yehudim al pi HaHoq Shivut. They otherwise have to be under the auspices of nasty people such as Dr. Michael Freund. (Just like Netanyahu, Dr. Freund can fool people. That's even part of why I save most of my e-mails in my backup folders—that is, so I do not ever lose the proof of when I run into mitchazim like Dr. Freund. That's why I still have the link to the 2012 conversation.).

 Likud-led fear and hatemongering hardly stops with our non-Jewish minorities. Progressives, civil rights activists, leftists, the judiciary and anyone who criticizes the occupation have all been accused of being enemies of the state. So much for Jewish solidarity or democratic discourse. 
Indeed. I've experienced this myself. I even have a Facebook friend who called Senator Diane Feinstein (with whom I myelf hardly ever agree) a "witch" for standing against Netanyahu, and I've seen others harp on the fact that Senator Feinstein comes from a Jewish Catholic family (which I did not know until they harped on her for it. As I learned, the Feinsteins and the Rosenburgs were and are Russian Byzantine Catholics.).

From a family of Roman Catholic Anusim and b'nei Anusim, I know that feeling ("You're not Jewish!"; "Your family betrayed their people!"; "They're meshumadim!"; "They're bogadim!"; "Oh; no wonder your Hebrew's not good: your family didn't tell you that they're Jewish!")

Perhaps, by the way, maybe the Anusi and "meshumad" minds are among the ones which are quickest to pick up on trouble. Our ancestors knew when trouble was coming and/or already came, and at least two of us (Senator Feinstein and me, though I suspect that there are more who) knew that Netanyahu and the Haredim were trouble (By the way, I'll have some kavod for Taylor Swift if she goes to Israel and dedicates her famous song to Netanyahu.).

Anyway:

This week’s Netanyahu drumbeat claims that the Iranian threat trumps all traditional diplomatic considerations. But those who, like me, believe that Iran is an existential threat to Israel, and fear that the agreement currently being negotiated will be too forgiving and trusting of Iran need to acknowledge that Netanyahu has blown it. 
His anti-Obama tirades, his support for West Bank settlements over all other considerations, his efforts to undermine the Palestinian Authority, his expropriation of 988 acres of Palestinian land at the end of the Gaza War not only wasted the new diplomatic opportunities he promised toward the war’s end, but alienated and antagonized the very European leaders who, along with U.S. President Barack Obama, are the partners necessary to stop Iran’s nuclear program. 

Excellent reminder and point as well. For being such a Zionist, Netanyahu isn't taking the higher road. He also is not trusting יהוה. For example, bulldozing the houses of innocent Bedouins does not help—and deliberately failing to distinguish between the innocent and the guilty is a chillul יהוה.

Bulldozing the houses of terrorists and their accomplices is fine. Destroying terrorists and their accomplices is fine. Stereotyping all Arabs as terrorists and bulldozing their houses is not fine.

As for (and back to the point about) taking the higher road, to stoop down to the level of an enemy or even lower is a chillul יהוה (cf. Tehillim 25:21-22 and Mishlei 26:4). The applicable mitzvot, after all, say to love your neighbor as yourself (not be like him or her in doing evil), treat the stranger well (not do as he or she has done to you), and let יהוה avenge you. Netanyahu is doing the exact opposite when he has the IDF go beyond proactive counterproliferation, preemption, and deterrence.

By the way, counterproliferation, preemption, and deterrence are obviously mitzvot and acts of kiddush יהוה.

Netanyahu plays the statesman abroad, but back home he is known for his paranoia, his self-aggrandizement, and his lashing out against the courts, the universities and the media. Netanyahu aspires to be Israel’s Churchill, but in nurturing a nation divided against itself he has become our Nixon. 
I and others who follow news from and about 'Eretz Yisra'el keep trying to say that, though nobody believes us. Hopefully, Director Futterman (despite that he's looking at the situation from a leftist perspective) can affect you to get that through your head.

I'm Not the Only One Kvetching About Netanyahu

As if PM Netanyahu's rebuttal to MK Livni did not already reek of dictatorial language:

"Prime Minister Netanyahu is the only leader in the world openly leading the struggle against the signing of a dangerous deal that will turn Iran into a nuclear-threshold state. Tzipi Livni is mistaken and misleading Israel’s citizens. Instead of supporting the prime minister in the big process of stopping a nuclear Iran, Tzipi is busy with personal insults and small politics. In complete contrast to what she says, the legislative initiative to apply additional sanctions on Iran has not been abandoned. Ten Democrat senators announced today that they will support passing more sanctions if Iran does not abide by the required clauses for a general agreement.”

No wonder, then, that I called PM Netanyahu "Manhig Yakar"! I and others saw trouble a long time ago. Why didn't more people see trouble? For example, giving 86% of the West Bank away should've been a huge sign that Netanyahu is a haredi posing as a chiloni! He "has [even] expressed support in principle for a Palestinian state"! 

Isn't that a clue that he, like many other Haredim, believe that the current Medinat Yisra'el is a treif medina?! Also, Agudat Yisra'el, the party in control, opposes Medinat Yisra'el


Next, in 1905, came Reb Judah Aryeh Leib Alter's eldest son, Abraham Mordecai Alter (1866-1948), who was perhaps the most influential of all Gerer tsadikim. He was nicknamed "Imrei Emet" (Speaker of Truth). Under his leadership the Gerer court reached its height of influence, gaining a reputation of excellence throughout the Hasidic world. Imrei Emet was also among the founders ofAgudat Israel , a conservative anti-Zionist religious political party that stepped into the difficult and diverse political world of the 20th century, articulating their view of what the essentials needs were for Jewish survival in Poland.

Ding! Ding! Is a bell ringing now?! David ben-Gurion let himself be a self-hating pawn! If there is any conspiracy going on, the conspiracy is on the part of self-hating/Anti-Semitic Haredim to dismantle Medinat Yisra'el until whom they believe to be Moshiach would come!

They shall be carried to Babylon, and there shall they be, until the day that I remember them, saith the Lord.1  And R. Zera?2  — That text1 refers3  to the vessels of ministry.4  And Rab Judah? — Another text also is available:3  I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles, and by the hinds of the field, [that ye awaken not, nor stir up love,5  until it please]'.6  And R. Zera? — That7  implies that Israel shall not go up [all together as if surrounded] by a wall.8  And Rab Judah? — Another 'I adjure you'9  is written in Scripture. And R. Zera? — That text is required for [an exposition] like that of R. Jose son of R. Hanina who said: 'What was the purpose of those three adjurations?10  — One, that Israel shall not go up [all together as if surrounded] by a wall;8  the second, that whereby the Holy One, blessed be He, adjured Israel that they shall not rebel against the nations of the world; and the third is that whereby the Holy One, blessed be He, adjured the idolaters that they shall not oppress Israel too much'. And Rab Judah? — It is written in Scripture, That ye awaken not, nor stir up.11  And R. Zera? — That text is required for [an exposition] like that of R. Levi who stated: 'What was the purpose of those six adjurations?12  — Three for the purposes just mentioned and the others, that [the prophets] shall not make known the end,13  that [the people] shall not14 delay15  the end,13  and that they shall not reveal the secret16  to the idolaters'.
By the gazelles, and by the hinds of the field.17  R. Eleazar explained: The Holy One, blessed be He, said to Israel, 'If you will keep the adjuration, well and good; but if not, I will permit your flesh [to be a prey] like [that of] the gazelles and the hinds of the field'.

As for Netanyahu, Artuz Eser surmises:

[W]ith the current poll findings[,] Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could form a 68 member governing coalition by joining forces with Jewish Home, Shas, United Torah Judaism, Kahlon, Yishai and Yisrael Beytenu. Opposition leader Isaac Herzog would be harder pressed to form a government, having to rope in both the ultra-Orthodox and Yesh Atid to form a fragile ruling coalition of 61 seats.
This is why Amir Hetsroni wrote:

What does Israel have to offer? It is easier to find kosher meat here and there is more variety of synagogues. To young people, Israel also offers the dubious pleasure of devoting two or three years of your life to the army.

Sounds tempting? Perhaps to Netanyahu and Benett, but not in the eyes of hundreds of thousands of Israelis who desperately search their family vaults for a proof that would grant them EU passport and not long ago took part in the popular Olim LeBerlin (“ascending to Berlin”) protest that expressed a wish to immigrate to Europe. Perhaps, Israel is a case wherein what looks nice from a distance is less attractive when you take a close-up shot.

By the way, that the Haredim are drying up Israel's economy may explain the low wages, etc..

Why The Hell Do I Care About My Self-Loathing Family, Especially When They Persecute Me?

I'm more worried about my family than I am about me, and I worry about other families who think that: a) I and others are joking. b) I and others are lying. Jeremiah 8:1-6 is going to be applying to my and other families if we don't get our **** together really soon, and that's what scares me—I didn't choose to find out that, in my own family's case, we're Jewish and we betrayed relatives during the Holocaust. I, as was everyone else who didn't know, was told that relatives wrote to us during the Great Depression to ask for money. Nobody told me that a cousin named Vilmosz Rusznak was desperately reaching out to cousins whom he considered apostates, let alone that we stopped writing to him—and the worst part is that not only are we in denial about what happened and the consequences of the happening, but we're also getting awfully close to making the same mistakes and having worse befall us for doing so.

We have relatives who were closer to those relatives and who are in Israel now, and we could very well let them fall into the hands of Rouhani, Putin, etc. if we don't get our **** together—and what does G-d say will happen if we even stay in the Diaspora, let alone leave our relatives who are already in Israel unhelped? 
"“At that time,” says the Lord, “they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of its princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves. 2 They shall spread them before the sun and the moon and all the host of heaven, which they have loved and which they have served and after which they have walked, which they have sought and which they have worshiped. They shall not be gathered nor buried; they shall be like refuse on the face of the earth. 3 Then death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of those who remain of this evil family, who remain in all the places where I have driven them,” says the Lord of hosts." (Jeremiah 8:1-3)


Nonetheless, I really resent that people would say that I am lying about what happened. What reason would I have to lie? You think that I like what happened, let alone that I'm getting persecuted for finding it out and talking about it? Give me a break—and I'm not here to help only our family: I'm here to help both our family and families who have been in situations like ours.

By the way, the United States is currently ~$16.965976 Trillion dollars in debt. We're not going to have a place to which to turn when push comes to shove—Vilmosz tried to make aliyah when the time for him to do so came too late; and our secret is out now—Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, etc. are not our lands—, so Europe won't back accepting us when "each shall flee to his own land" (cf. Isaiah 13:14 and Jeremiah 50:16).


That said, "“Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the LordAnd if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”"

You do what you want; I'm making aliyah, and I'm not helping you when push comes to shove—I have family who will listen to help out. 

Update: Here's how I put it to a friend with pictures:


  • I am worried.
    My one cousin in particular thinks that I'm making **** up and that this is all a joke to me.
    And looking at what times we're in now, I'm really worried about his fate.
    This is the nasty comment that I received from him—and this after I found out that my great-great-granddad Rusnak was complicit in the deaths of his cousins who were murdered in the Holocaust:

  • "How could you possibly presume guilt from a picture taken years later? You must really hate your family and hate your ancestry. Andy and Julia were not ethnic Jews, and had no cousin named Vilmosz. Vilmosz's family never reached out to the Zlata Idka Fosko/Rusnaks. Your thinking and your comments about Andrew Rusnak make me sick. Why don't you share your beliefs with Joseph Rusnak and see what he thinks about your comments about his grandfather?"


  • And I've told Joe—he laughed.
    That is, I told him that we're Jewish. He doesn't believe it.

  • And what am I supposed to do when the U.S. and global economies crash; WWIII happens, and they get wiped out? After all, "death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of those who remain of this evil family, who remain in all the places where I have driven them,” says the Lord of hosts."

  • Not only that, but we're still ****ed up from what my great-great-granddad and my great-grandma (his oldest daughter did). If you count from him, I am of the fourth generation from him. From her, I am of the third.

    "‘The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.’"

  • And this is what he looked like 27 vs. 69, by the way....
    At 69 (about two years after Vilmosz and other cousins died at Auschwitz): https://scontent-b-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/995923_206618582828138_1461355789_n.jpg
    And he had quit working in the coal mines in his 30s to 40s. He did not do any more hard labor after that. He was a church sexton and cemetery caretaker.
  • Where else would that kind of wearing down come from? G-d curses those who do such heinous things as my great-great-granddad did. And this was him shortly before that...


    Update: I want to know what you would do:
