An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for Israel
I had relatives who use to go to Beirut every year on vacation. Then, that beautiful city started to deteriorate, and became dangerous, especially for Christians. Why do you think my grandparents immigrated from Lebanon? Even in the late 1800s, the muslims were trying to eradicate anyone not muslim in that country. It did become more peaceful in the mid 1950s, so first generation Americans could go see the country their parents left, and where many relatives murdered.
So, watch this video, imagine what could have been, and remember, until there is complete destruction of the murderous thugs, there will be no peace….anywhere!
As you already know, a large number in the U.S. have decided that the leadership (or lack there of) of this country is about as useless as teats on a boar. The rest? Well, you’ll have to forgive them because of their lack of education. They haven’t been taught real history, and know little to nothing about the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, or what He has told the world what would happen if they turned their back on the Apple of His Eye.
I would apologize for the actions of those in the administration, but I’m afraid I just can’t. They are responsible for their own actions, and an apology from me would do nothing to remedy the situation. Just know that millions of Americans are thoroughly disgusted by their actions, and the treatment you have received at the hands of Lurch…er….John Kerry, supposed Secretary of State, and his boss, the current resident of the White House, Barack Hussein Obama. They either don’t understand the ramifications of their actions, or they don’t care. WE, on the other, DO care. A LOT!
As an individual who had the honor to visit your beautiful country, meet so many wonderful people, and believe in the same God, I will do all I can to educate those who would blame you for defending yourselves. I, unlike the current administration, understand that the pictures shown on the nightly news are nothing more than propaganda, meant to curry sympathy for a barbarous 7th century cult of death. I know this cult uses women and children as shields, proving their cowardice. I know they have no value for human life, life created by God Himself, but since they do NOT worship the same merciful God as you and I, they have no understanding how precious each live is to Him. They are quite reminiscent of the Baal worshipers of old, who sacrificed their children for their own personal gain. (Rather like abortionists of today.)
I pray daily, for your safety and well being. I pray that many eyes would be opened, to see the reality of what you deal with on a daily basis. I pray God will intervene on your behalf to destroy your enemies, as has was prophesied by many over the centuries past.
I want you to know that at least one American, if not millions, prays for Israel.
I had heard, and seen references to, a letter written by an Israeli citizen, but finally found an actual link to the op-ed in The Times of Israel. I am doing a copy and paste because I believe that as many people as possible should read it, and send it to their friends, relatives, and especially to anyone who has ever stated the repeated lies they have heard on the media, seen on the internet, etc. The propaganda of the anti-Israel thugs is rampant. To hear the mainstream media, from around the world, you’d think that Israel was the aggressor, but nothing could be further from the truth. Hamas forces civilians to remain in areas that the Israelis have warned will be shelled, attempting to save lives. Hamas wants as many dead civilians as possible. That’s a sickness I can’t even begin to understand.
Anyway, in full, the op-ed:

I don’t know how to write this without sounding like the kind of person I’m about to sound like, but sometimes you’ve just got to write it like you feel it. And I feel this. I un-friended a ‘friend’ from Facebook the other day.
To be honest, he wasn’t really a friend. He was a professional aquaintance and one whose talent I respect. But that’s it.
I un-friended him because he crossed a line.
I don’t mind that he didn’t write to ask how we’re doing here in Israel. People have their lives and we’re not the center of the world.
No. He started posting videos and images that reek of anti-semitism and an anti-Israel bias the likes of which are posted by people who clearly hate my country.
And I saw these posts.
A video by an English elected official who spewed such anti-Israel rhetoric that it was borderline hatred.
And a post that Robert De Niro supposedly made claiming we’re an apartheid state. (He never said that at all. We’re not – and that post was another spreading of an untruth).
He crossed a line on a day – the other day – that 13 regular Israeli fathers, sons or brothers here were killed defending my country. Men drawn into a war they did not want to fight, but fought to protect their families, friends, and country – and to protect ME. A war others will continue to fight because to not fight it means we will perish. I don’t mean that we will lose our country, but as you can see by the turmoil around us in the Middle East (that has nothing to do with us) we will lose our lives. Read on…
….even a “progressive” can understand! But probably not. You know so many have serious learning disabilities.

I’ve been reading some of the articles and opinion pieces concerning the current conflict between Hamas and Israel. Now, one thing that strikes me as obvious amidst all the calls for Israel to stop bombing Gaza, and the ugly comparisons to apartheid and Nazi death camps….if Hamas would stop bombing Israel, Israel would stop bombing targets in Gaza. It’s really that simple. Sadly, Hamas has rejected pleas from Abbas to knock it off. Just why did Abbas agree to join that triad of terror anyway? Methinks Abbas is cheering on the the constant bombardment of civilians in Israel.
Now, I don’t know about you, but if someone attacked my home, I’d use whatever means I had at my disposal to retaliate, and take out the bad guys. That is my RIGHT! We would like to think that if the U.S. was attacked in such a manner, the current resident of the White House would retaliate. I have my doubts.
In case some folks have forgotten, Hamas are the bad guys. It looks like they’re bringing in a fellow bunch of bad guys in Lebanon, to the north, to help in the attempt to murder innocent civilians, although it appears that Lebanon has dealt with a couple of those thugs themselves….after Israel returned the favor and took out the area from which the rockets were being fired.
When Israel has been attacked, as they have more than 50 times this year alone, they have shown amazing restraint. They have given civilians in the Gaza strip warning that the target was about to be hit, through phone calls and knocks on the roof with non explosive mortars, advising the civilians leave the area. Hamas has no problem with the civilians being killed. Apparently, the more deaths civilians suffer, the better so they can claim victim status and accuse Israel of ‘human rights violations’. The fact that Hamas uses civilians as human shields apparently is never brought up in the accusations by organizations like the Useless Numnuts. If the civilians were allowed to heed the warnings from Israel, such deaths would be kept at a minimum.
It is way past time for the U.S. to stop funding terrorists, and that includes aid to the ‘disputed territories in Israel. The citizens CHOSE a terrorist organization as their government representatives, so apparently, the civilians are in agreement of the actions taken by their government? Perhaps not all, but enough that put the terrorists in power.
I urge Congress to rethink how they spend our money. Aiding and abetting terrorism isn’t a wise choice. Such monetary assistance speaks volumes. Israel is our only ally in that region, wouldn’t it make more sense to stop assisting those who would destroy her?
I don’t even know where to start! Three Jewish boys are murdered, presumably by Hamas associates(definitely by muslims) , and the so called palestinians celebrate. A few crazy Jews murder a palestinian boy and Hamas pretty much declares war on Israel. Does anyone else see the irony? The hypocrisy? Both acts were brutal, and unforgivable. The Israelis arrests the Jews who committed the horrendous act, and WILL prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. Do you think anyone in the Gaza strip will arrest the murderous thugs who killed the three Jewish boys? Oh HELL no they won’t. As I said, the palies celebrated their murder.
For the past few days, rockets have been raining down on the Israelis from Gaza. Who does the Obama administration blame? You got it! The Israelis. They don’t seem to be aware that the Israelis have tried to live in peace with the “disputed territories’, all of which is part of Israel. The muslims in those areas refuse to live in peace! They don’t want Jews or Christians, or anyone else to live….PERIOD! We could learn a great deal from the Israelis about protecting our homeland, but to admit that the Israelis are better at something, actually a LOT of somethings, would go against Obama’s ‘religion’.
Do the Obamatrons not know the centuries of persecution of the Jewish people? It didn’t matter what country to which they were forced to flee, they would always end up being persecuted, even the U.S., which touts a 1st Amendment right of the freedom to worship as one chooses. Finally, after centuries of wandering from one country to another, they finally get their homeland back, and all hell breaks lose. One tiny strip of land, only a fraction of the land that God gave them, and they are suppose to up and leave again? After one of those most telling examples of man’s inhumanity to his fellow man, the Jews finally get to go home, and all hell breaks lose once again. They have been fighting for their lives for centuries, does the Obama administration think that just because HE says so, the Israelis are going to open their arms to those who want to slaughter them? Again?
There will be no living in peace with the muslims because the muslims do not want peace. They want to murder. They had the opportunity to make a garden of the desert, support themselves, have economic growth. Instead, they chose to destroy everything that the Jewish people had built, and left in Gaza when the Israelis agreed to give up that land to the muslims. They screwed themselves, and we’re suppose to feel sorry for them, and give them billions of dollars? I don’t freakin’ think so.
Centuries of hatred perpetrated by the teachings of a murderous pedophile, who was snubbed by the Jews who refused to turn away from the one TRUE God and convert to his idol worship, will not vanish. Obama knows this, and refuses to face reality. Islam is a cult of hatred and death.
Barack Hussein Obama, and his lackeys, might stand with the lying, thieving, murdering muslims, but….
