Orthodox Jews Burning an Israeli Flag in Brooklyn

Basically, this article is about: “increasing the quantity of your options”. Everyone understands that it is advisable to have a diversified portfolio to protect your financial assets.


What I am advocating here is a diversified portfolio of “geo-political” assets. In other words: the more passports you have, the safer you will be and the easiest passport for you to obtain is an Israeli passport (but if in addition you also would like to get a Uruguayan passport, hey: go for it....).

That being said, I would now like to talk about: Why?



Why should every American Jew begin seriously thinking about obtaining an Israeli passport or, at least, a temporary entry visa as a new immigrant?

 

Although one can give many examples of the warped perspective held by many  in regards to Jews in general and Zionists in particular; in the public venue, the two most recent criticisms have been voiced by National Security Advisor Susan Rice and Senator Burney Sanders.

In the private venue, if you examine dialogues on the internet with members of J Street and The American Orthodox community or with members of the BDS movement you will see a disturbing trend developing.

Before beginning, I would just like to mention that if you ever have had any connection with BDS advocates on the internet, the favorite word they like to use is “deflecting”….as in:

“YOU ARE DEFLECTING !!!”

So, for example, If someone from BDS mentions that Israel killed 2,300 Palestinians in the last conflict in Gaza and then you reply that Jordan killed somewhere between 10, 15, or 20,000 Palestinians during Black September, immediately the next message will be:

 “YOU ARE DEFLECTING !!!”

In other words: In the opinion of Israel’s critics, it makes no difference how many thousands, tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people have been killed by other nations (or even their own nation); that STILL does not excuse the fact that Israel killed 2,300 Palestinians in 2014.

Yes, but: What if we are talking about MILLIONS of people?

Does that make a difference?

National Security Advisor Susan Rice recently made a comment that the United States views the construction of settlements as: “corroding the prospect for two states”.

Secretary of State Kerry used the phrase: “the settlements are not helpful to peace”.

But, my all time favorite story concerns a member of the staff of the internet site:  “The Times of Israel”.

Sarah Tuttle-Singer decided one day to hide her Israeli identity card in the glove compartment of her car and then entered Hebron with her American passport claiming to be: “an American tourist”…. She then went on to conclude how regrettable it was that Israelis are not able to achieve the same “amiable” relations with Arabs as she had experienced that afternoon….(This is not a direct quote, but it was the basic drift of her article).

Regardless, can you just imagine this conversation?

“Hi,”

 “I’m Sarah,”

“I am a tourist from the country that caused the deaths of 500,000 Muslim children in Iraq before 9/11and which killed over 300,000 Muslims in Afghanistan and another 600,000 Muslims in Iraq after 9/11…”

“Hey, do you remember all the women and children who were killed during the ‘Shock and Awe’ bombings in Baghdad” ? That was MY country which did that…..Yes, that’s right and I can prove it; look, here’s my American passport….”

You see, I may try to “deflect” away criticism of the number of people killed by Israel, but Sarah Tuttle-Singer is living in “a state of absolute denial” about the numbers of people killed by Americans.

Okay granted, a woman who allowed her boyfriend to physically abuse her for months and a woman who sends her son to school in a dress and high heels, is not exactly the stablest of examples one could cite, yet this outright denial of the carnage wrought by the American war machine is NOT limited to wackos like Sarah… 

The absolute best example of this denial comes from the perfectly normal and perfectly stable Senator Burney Sanders…

Burney Sanders says he “loves” Israel, but the killing of 2,300 Palestinians was: “a disproportional response” to the attacks from Hamas via rockets and tunnels….(that he first claimed the number was 10,000 killed is irrelevant, because, even after he was apprised of the correct figure, he stood by his characterization of this act as: “a disproportionate response”).

Okay Burney, we hear you….

Just one question:

If Gaza was: “a disproportional response” then: how would you describe the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Or the destruction by fire bombs of entire cities such as: Tokyo, Dresden, Hamburg and over 50 others….Resulting in the horrific deaths of, at least 600,000 civilians?

And please, let’s not delude ourselves about just how horrible these fire bomb attacks were:

American bomber crews were vomiting in their planes from the stench of burning flesh rising up from the fires in Tokyo….

Have you ever asked yourself:

Why didn’t the Japanese surrender immediately after Hiroshima, were they retarded?

No they weren’t retarded, it is just that by the time Hiroshima took place Americans had already incinerated over 50 other Japanese cities with fire bombs.

Thus from the Japanese perspective: What difference did one more city make? In fact, many historians now argue that it was the massive Russian invasion of Manchuria on August 8th which convinced the Japanese to surrender, NOT Hiroshima and Nagasaki….

 

BUT, you know what, Burney? I would like to ask another question:

Granted, there were 3,000 Americans killed on 9/11 (i.e. “In one day”)

Yet, doesn’t 15 years of non-stop warfare in at least two countries, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of combatants, as well as hundreds of thousands of civilians, with no end in sight in the near future….Doesn’t all that fall into the category of: “a disproportional response”?

What do you say, Burney?

Of course, we already know what Senator Sander’s response will be:

“YOU ARE DEFLECTING !!!”

If you read the recent headlines in many American newspapers, websites and even on Facebook you see two main themes:

Trump is Hitler! (Or at the very least: Mussolini)

AND…

A major economic collapse in the United States is imminent.

In fact, things are getting so crazy in America, I have even read on Facebook that:

“Hillary is worse than Hitler!!!”

 So let’s review for a second:

The United States has been conducting non-stop warfare for over 15 years. At this very moment, while you are reading this article, the United States is bombing on a regular basis: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Iraq and Syria….

It has been reported in many places that in the last seven years President Obama has personally authorized drone attacks which have resulted in the deaths of over 3,600 people…..

(i.e. President Obama has been personally involved in the deaths of more people in the last 7 years than have been killed by the entire Israeli army and security forces combined….).

“YOU ARE DEFLECTING !!!”

 Maybe so, but let’s take into consideration the fact that since the Zionist movement began in 1880, “the entire Arab/Israeli conflict” has resulted in the deaths of less than “120,000 people” and that includes: Israelis, Palestinians, Egyptians, Jordanians, Lebanese, Syrians and the spy ship USS Liberty….

Less than 120,000 people in over 130 years…

Contrast this with the fact that the USA killed over 250,000 people in less than 3 days in Japan….and over 3 million people in 10 years of fighting in Viet-Nam…

Lets repeat that, shall we:

Israel: 120,000 deaths in 130 years....The USA: 250,000 deaths in 3 days.....


So, when American Jews start complaining that on college campuses Jewish students are being harassed by the citizens of a country that has already killed 250,000 people in 3 days, 3 million Vietnamese and close to 2 million Muslims, it really shouldn't be too difficult to come up with some sort of response.

"Doctor, heal thyself", comes to mind....Or: "First remove the plank of wood from your eye, before you comment on the speck of sawdust in my eye..." would also do quite nicely one would think.  


Especially since the USA has plans to go on killing even more of Muslims for years into the future….(The Secretary of Defense has now released plans to INCREASE American forces in Afghanistan soon….)


Susan Rice, John Kerry, Burney Sanders and the entire American DBS movement are standing waist-deep in a lake of blood which continues to inch up ever higher with each passing day. Nevertheless, they have the gall to complain about Israel building houses…

I mean, perhaps Al Jazeera should conduct a poll:

"If you were a Muslim, would you prefer to be blown into small pieces by an American drone? Or: Would you prefer to have a settlement built down the road from your village by the Zionist entity?"

You know, some people seem to feel that Palestinians would never bother anybody if the Israelis would just let them live in peace and quiet. The fact that Senator Robert Kennedy was murdered by a Palestinian living peacefully and quietly in Los Angeles just seems to have slipped under the radar....


But once again:

“YOU ARE DEFLECTING !!!”

Perhaps so, none the less….Just think about this for a moment:

Janet Yellen: Jewish

Goldman Sachs: Jewish

Donald Trump’s daughter: Jewish

Hillary Clinton’s daughter: married to a Jew

Burney Sanders: Jewish

Seven of the eight people who testified in Congress about the last financial crisis: Jewish

Ben Bernanke: Jewish

Alan Greenspan: Jewish

If there is a major financial disruption in the near future, who do you think the reasonable and unbiased Americans in the BDS movement are going to blame?

Do you think it is possible they might blame, the Jews?

Well then, let me just include this link to a video about “the fast approaching” World War III and ensuing break- down of social order in the USA as a result of the collapse of the electrical grid. This video, so far, has been viewed by about 500,000 people  (There is no real need for you to watch the video unless you think I am a liar).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Bf5JrTjqh8

The point is the video provides a list of 20 names: Not the 20 most dangerous terrorists in America. Not the 20 most radical extremists in America. Oh no…this video ONLY provides the names and business associations of the 20 wealthiest Jews in the United States….but hey: Who’s counting?

“YOU ARE DEFLECTING !!!”

So:  If some people in the USA are saying: “Trump reminds me of Hitler”. Or, even if people were just saying: “the situation is ‘somewhat similar to Hitler’”, don’t you think it is a good idea, at the very least, to begin to set up some sort of escape plan? Just to be on the safe side….

I mean: What are you waiting for: “a perfect match”?

If Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn are burning the Israeli flag, what do you think the average American fascist is going to do to Janet Yellen’s house?

None the less, today, Hillary and her supporters are saying: “We Americans are better than that”….

Yes, I am sure they are, but the Nazis were not the majority party in Germany, they were in the minority…

The Bolsheviks were not the majority party in Russia, they were the minority… (Even though the name “Bolshevik” means “majority”, originally they were a minority party in the Russian Congress…)

The followers of Pol Pot were not in the majority in Cambodia, they were in the minority…

History has shown again and again that a small group, of determined fanatics, can easily overwhelm and manipulate a much larger group of people, especially during a crisis…

Of course, America is a big country. Nevertheless, if ONLY ONE in every one hundred Americans hated Jews, that would still be 3.5 million Americans.

But tell the truth: Do you really believe that ONLY ONE in every one hundred Americans hates Jews?

“YOU ARE DEFLECTING !!!”

In the 1930’s the Orthodox  Jews of Poland knew what was going on….they weren’t stupid…but their "rabbinical scholars" told them to: a) “wait for the messiah”: b) “the Jews in ‘the Yishuv’ are secular socialists”; c) “these troubles will pass like they always have done….” d) “If the Jews are all in one place, they will kill us all….”

The point is over 3 million Orthodox Jews from Poland died in the camps….Why?

Because by the time the Orthodox community came to the realization that their "rabbinical scholars" were complete and total idiots and decided that they did indeed  want to leave Poland it was too late. In 1939 the British White Papers led to a freeze in the number of visas to Palestine; up to a maximum of 10,000 per year…


Don’t let the same thing happen to you and your family….

In the United States, there is an immigration organization called: “Nephesh B’Nephesh”

http://www.nbn.org.il/

Start to fill out the forms  NOW !!!

It takes time to collect the necessary documents; get letters from your rabbi; medical reports; financial statements….

I am not saying you must move to Israel tomorrow, just that you think of an immigration visa to Israel as an insurance policy….If you need to get out in a hurry, you’re ready….

In short, as I said in the beginning of this article: All I am asking you to do is give yourself an additional option ….You diversify your financial portfolio, correct? Now diversify your geo-political portfolio….

 

Listen, if I am wrong, the worse that will happen is that you wasted 20 or 30 hours of effort….

BUT…

If I am right….

Well, you know what?

I’ll let you think about what might happen to you and your family if I am right….

 

In conclusion: maybe all this was a little bit too intense. Here’s a link to a video from one of America’s most famous comedians: Chris Rock to help relieve the stress….

This video you MUST watch…..
