No Confidence, No Charisma

Israelis and Jews and Israel-lovers are barking up the wrong tree. Creating better more pro-Israel policies from foreign governments and more pro-Israel editorial policies in the media aren't dependent on logic. Even finely crafted editorials, like this one from Stephen J. Savitsky, President of the OU won't change Obama's or anybody's opinion and feelings.

It all depends on us, on Israel.

People keep asking me about Mike Huckabee and Israel. It doesn't matter how pro-Israel Huckabee may be if Israeli policies don't protect us and if Israel keeps acting like a desperate nebich.

It's all in the "body language." It all depends on us. If you act like a hero, you'll be treated like one. But if you act dependent and weak, people, nations will just work harder to destroy you.

That's our, Israel's problem.

We keep begging, offering treats and bribes, so the world and our enemies just demand more from us.

We're an ancient and noble nation. We need nobody but ourselves and G-d. Christianity and Islam were both invented to replace Judaism, and that's because their original leaders understood well that G-d loves us and only us. Christian and Muslim leaders have fooled many people, but they don't fool G-d.

G-d is waiting for the Jewish People to return to Him, to repent.

Today is the first of the Jewish Month of Elul, the month of Tshuva, Repentance. We must prepare ourselves for Judgement.

Chodesh Tov and Shannah Tovah
Have a Good Month and a Good Year

So true, I have heard people say that we must appeal to Israel's supporters in Congress to help shape American policy. What's the point if the Knesset are going to run like lackeys when America says to jump?

In the end the strength has to come from the people. For a while now I've been feeling like the difference will be made when Israelis, as a society will begin seeing themselves more as Yehudim more than than they see themselves as Israeli. Sort of a cultural Tshuva. I think the strengthening, rather than compromising Yesha would go along way to achieving that goal.

In terms of the politicians, what do you make of Yaalon standing with Feiglin? Do you think this is something of a change of winds, or just another path to more of the same?

Chodesh Tov!

Ya'alon is upset that the didn't get the Defense Ministry. I wasn't surprised. Bibi is going Left.
