Never Lose Hope

A terrible summer of wars and violence is continuing. Russian – Ukrainian conflict, the Middle East in turmoil, the flight MH17 tragedy. Humanity continuous path to self distraction

This has been written over 3 years ago but I think this article is as relevant today as it was then. Different country, another conflict but really nothing changed. Nothing. Violence and wars and blood.  Over and over again. For as long as humanity exists. Why is that in order to exist humans have to be at each other throats all the time. No other animal does this. It seems that most of the energy and ingenuity of people is directed on better ways to kill each other. And yet there is always hope. It has to be. Otherwise life would be impossible. As I am reading this old letter and as I am writing this foreword I do hope that some day, some distant day humanity will grow up and stop the madness.
I STILL HOPE.
Some thoughts about current and not so current events
The forces of light and darkness
Dawn

This war will never end. This war began with the creation of the Universe.

It is the eternal war of two opposites.

Call it the forces of Light and Darkness, Life and Death, Love and Hate.

The forces of light represent progress, advancement and growth.

The forces of dark – regression, death and entropy.

The Entropy and Regression are older, more probable states of the Universe.

The moment the forces of Light become complacent, relax, look the other way the Darkness advances, gets stronger.

We are at that stage now

Terrorism is like a dark poisonous cloud that creeps around the world slowly advancing and filling every available void.

The Evil is evolving, adapting, changing. It creeps up on the unsuspecting world filling every void created by absence of forces of Light.

It is filling Afganistan, Iraq, Africa, Lebanon, Gaza, Europe.

Yet the world does nothing

It is not enough to destroy the darkness. One has to replace it with light, fill the void.

There can not be Gray. If the forces of Light do not fill the void, the darkness comes in.

Israel can not do it alone.

America cannot do it alone

Europe cannot do it alone (not that it is trying)

Because the forces of dark are always ready to fill the void.

When the Israelis left Lebanon 6 years ago they left the void. The world did nothing to fill the void.

The Darkness came in.

Unless the forces of Light and Life unite, the forces of Dark and Death will win.

In supporting the oppressive regimes around the world we are just delaying the inevitable.

These regimes will explode. Dictatorships always crush.  Meanwhile there are undercurrents of anger, frustration and opposition that in many cases become violent and directed toward America. There is a price we pay for supporting dictators and being on the wrong side of history. Always.

So maybe this time we got a little smarter handling crisis in Egypt and Tunisia.

Smarter by not invading or forcing the outcome.

Smarter by being on the right side of history.

The Hypocrisy and Desolation of Europe.

The evil is coming. Usually it starts with Jews. The rise of Antisemitism is the first sign of the coming apocalypse. It happened before and it will happen again if the world did not learn anything from the past!

Not that there is anything new about it, but one hopes that people and countries learn from past experiences.  Unfortunately it is not the case.

Europe during WWII did nothing to stop the Nazis.  Europe gave Czechoslovakia to Hitler.  Europe did nothing to save the Jews from the Holocaust.

And current events are a sad confirmation of that unfortunate reality. An inept decadent society, Europe is unable and unwilling to stand up to evil.

Muslims rioting in Europe.
Europe of today

Muslims rioting in France.  “It is the third time in a week where pro-Palestinian activists have clashed with the city’s Jewish residents.  On Sunday, locals reported chants of , “Gas the Jews” and “Kill the Jews”, as rioters attacked businesses in the Sarcelles district, known as “little Jerusalem”.  http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/07/22/france-jewish-shops-riot_n_5608612.html

Where are the French police?  Where is the outrage?  It is there but the French are outraged by Israel’s “criminal act” against poor, innocent, oppressed Hamas.

And unfortunately France is not alone in blaming Israel for defending it’s citizens from terrorists.  http://www.jewishjournal.com/martini_judaism/item/youre_not_my_friend_anymore

Antisemitism on the rise in Europe
The face of Europe

Europe is hostile to Israel for several reasons:  business relations with Arab countries, fear of their own Muslim population and deeply rooted anti-Semitism.

One more reason in my opinion is the false feeling of superiority based on the history of Europe and it’s aristocracy.

And it is not just about Israel.

Europe does nothing to stop this megalomaniac, Putin, from blatant, reckless actions in eastern Europe – Russia’s invasion and destabilization of Ukraine continues.

There are several reasons why Europe does not want anything to do with this:

It’s public and politicians are lazy and incapable of any strong action.

Putin destabilization of Ukraine
298 innocent people killed without reason

European leaders are afraid that strong actions may affect their economy and jeopardize their chances of reelection.  Many European businesses have strong ties with Russian businesses and have concerns about profits.

In short – political careers and business profits are more important for Europeans than European and world security.

Some perfect examples of what I am talking about:  France sold military navy ships to Russia even after the Malaysian plane disaster. http://www.businessinsider.com/france-to-deliver-first-warship-to-russia-despite-mh17-downing-and-angry-allies-2014-7

London (AFP) – Britain is still exporting arms and military equipment to Russia, according to a parliamentary report released Wednesday just hours after Prime Minister, David Cameron, rapped France for selling weapons to Moscow.

So, in short, Europe is irrelevant and it is a known fact around the world.

In the last 100 years, all Europeans have bragged about their history.

But the past is gone and it is a real possibility that, considering the influx of Muslims, proud and arrogant Europe will be nothing but history.

The evil is coming.  Usually it starts with Jews. The rise of Antisemitism is the first sign of the coming apocalypse.  It happened before and it will happen again if the world did not learn anything from the past!

Lopsided

How one word in a Chicago Tribune article changed the whole meaning of an article that was published first in the L.A. Times. According to the Tribune the World is concerned not as much about the bloodshed but that not enough Israelis died in this conflict. They just changed the position of one sentence and added one word.

LA Times, July 13.http://www.latimes.com/world/middleeast/la-fg-israel-ground-raid-gaza-20140713-story.html

Despite the concentrated attack, militants continued to fire rockets at a broad swath of Israel, setting off warning sirens in Tel Aviv and the coastal city of Haifa.  A teenager became the second Israeli civilian to be severely wounded in six days of fighting when two rockets landed in the city of Ashkelon.  No Israelis have been killed by the rocket strikes.

In Gaza, the death toll rose to at least 167, fueling international alarm over the casualty count.  The U.N. says the majority of the victims have been civilians. Seventeen members of one extended family were killed late Saturday when a home and nearby mosque were hit.  More than 1,000 people have been injured.

Chicago Tribune, July 14, Nation and World (page 11, Section 1).

I could not find this article online.  Maybe you will have better luck.

Israel Unleashes Strike on Gaza

Despite the concentrated attack, militants continued to fire rockets at a broad swath of Israel, setting off warning sirens in Tel Aviv and the coastal city of Haifa.  A teenager became the second Israeli civilian to be severely wounded in six days of fighting when two rockets landed in the city of Ashkelon.

No Israelis have been killed by the rocket strikes.  In Gaza, the death toll rose to at least 167, fueling international alarm over the lopsided casualty count.  The U.N. says the majority of the victims have been civilians.  Seventeen members of one extended family were killed late Saturday when a home and nearby mosque were hit.  More than 1,000 people have been injured.”

So in the opinion of the Chicago Tribune, the Israelis should turn off the Iron Dome defense system and let the Hamas rockets fall on the Israeli cities…to the satisfaction of the world and the editors of the Chicago Tribune.

Stick it to Obama!

“Rednecks are now modifying their trucks to destroy the environment as much as they can all because they don’t like Obama. You know, because somehow wanting to breath clean air is a liberal attack on freedom. “

Self defeating GOP politics.
Take this Obama!

The redneck “pledge of allegiance” to the Ignorant Stupid Idiots Society (ISIS)

Ignorance and racism
Yes! Keep medicare private!

We refuse Obamacare, this social Muslim medicine, even if our life depends upon it.  It is better to be fat, sick and free than to be a thin healthy socialist.  And take your Government’s dirty hands off our Medicaid and Medicare!

Eat junk food only to show this black Muslim communist bitch, Michelle Obama, that you love freedom and you will not be enslaved by this “healthy” food because Obama adds stuff in this food that makes us slaves.

Polluting on purpouse
Freedom fighters

Follow the Constitution that says you can pollute with your truck as much as you want.

Don’t believe a word these liberals are saying about the Climate.  They are just trying to scare us and take our trucks from us.  There is no “climate change” – the Constitution says that freedom-loving true Americans are exceptional and should not be afraid of any Climate.  That is why we have guns.

Gun crazy nation
Who needs science?

Science is a trick by liberals and socialist Marxists to enslave freedom-loving Americans.  These liberals want to put chips in our brains (good luck finding it) to control us, real patriots.  Science is for these sissy liberals.  We have our guns.

We real Americans will not allow any foreign immigrants to come to America and take over and destroy our way of life and take our jobs that we don’t want because Mexicans should do it, not exceptional Americans like us.

We the ISIS, the Christians will fight for freedom for Christians from this oppressive socialist government.  And if you are not a Christian, too bad.  You not Christians –  you better get out of America.  Go to socialist Europe and watch them play this stupid game where they kick the ball with their feet all the time and for some stupid reason, call it football!

Freedom for stupid is dangerous.
Let Freedom Ring!

The Boys

The Jews in the Middle East. The proud and tragic people. Israel is in mortal danger. Again
Surrounded by evil that feeds on hate and ignorance. Another chapter in the long history of these unordinary people.

This sinking feeling.

It is happening again.

My heart is heavy and mine age is weak; grief would have tears, and sorrow bids me speak.”  Shakespeare.

Palestinians and peace.
Murdered foe being Jewish.

The children of Israel

Young boys

Gone.  Murdered.

So tragic, so familiar.

They are somebody’s sons

Brothers

Friends.

A small sliver of Jewish history

The unending saga of an ancient tribe.

These boys, Jewish boys, are murdered for one reason.

Jewish fate
An ancient tribe

The eternal reason

They are Jews

These kids belong to a small, ancient tribe

A tribe that stands alone in the world.

Apart from the rest of humanity.

The Jews

We are a nation.

But much more than that

A religion

Jew contributed enormously to humanity
Albert Einstein

But much more than that

All major religions are based on ours.

But we are much more than that.

Jews changed humanity in many ways.

Their contribution to all aspects of civilization is vastly greater than their numbers.

Proud and brilliant people.

Jews survived, persevered.

They have seen it all.

A mighty Empire rising and falling to dust

Brutal oppressors come and gone.

Wars

Jews are killed for being Jews
Anne Frank

Concentration camps

And yet every time the Evil rises unnoticed by humanity

Every time Evil is trying to crush the Jewish tribe

While passive humanity is pretending not to see

The Jews survive and Evil is retreating.

But it is still there

Waiting patiently

Gathering strength, again

Feeding on human hatred, ignorance and greed.

In an unending cycle Evil rises again

Now in the Middle East

Three young boys

ISIS in the Middle east
Evil rises again

Their future taken from them

Brutally murdered for only one reason – being Jewish.

Israel is in mortal danger

Again

Surrounded by evil that feeds on hate and ignorance

Another chapter in the long history of these unordinary people.

I am proud to be a Jew

And I know that the page will turn

Jews are resilient people.

Evil will go in hiding again

Waiting for the opportune time to rise again

And we the Jews will face it again

But as always envied and disliked by the world.

The Jewish fate.

Sad knowledge and optimism.
