Let's Pray That This Year Tisha (the 9th of) Av Will be a Joyous Holiday

G-d willing this year we will start celebrating throughout the Jewish Month of Av instead of the mourning we have been doing for over two thousand 2,000 years. Shiloh Hakeduma, Tel Shiloh, where the Biblical Tabernacle had rested for three-hundred-sixty-nine 369 years,  is the perfect place for women to come and pray to G-d to give thanks.

Rosh Chodesh, the beginning of the Jewish month, is traditionally the Women's Holiday. Please make plans to join us. Organize rides from your communities.

Shiloh was the capital city of the Jewish People before Jerusalem. The holiness never left it.

recently, i've bin ruminating about the concept of the new moon: i am aware that it is observed monthly [by perceptive jews; east asians observe the moon in its various phases), but i've found the Days ~ most unpleasant anywhere N the Western Hemisphere ~ increasingly Evil, Eval, and Unbearable; ergo, as a novice observer firmly on the ground where my gaze is mostly cast these days, as opposed to the constellations (it seems intrusive and immodest to look into the abode of the ineffable, but indicting humanity's fallibility into immeasurable blog archives aka collecting their Debts is easier on the eyes, despite it being a Jubilee year), i find the appearance of the moon, on a daily basis, a must, in order to tolerate whatever it is this Generation of Generations is going through, which feels like decay, a process that dismantles nuclear material actually.

i evin welcome cryptic eclipses, occasionally.

i can feel my biological centenarian father dying, above me, on the top floor, basically, and the absence of competent care makes me brood in tangible silence further down the thorniest of stairs (John Cantlie being forced to shop at the local market is the Distorted image that best resembles the Absurdity of this most Wickedest of Generations, not to mention the Multitude of Hypocritical Canines on the cusp of being burnt alive, excuse my graphic prose)

in obscure texts, rosh chodesh is akin to shavuot with an emphasis on healing the Nations, indiscriminately. frankly, the Nations don't deserve to be healed of their Plagues, clearly on record; beggars can't be too choosy either, i suppose, when Everybody, as in a World Population exceeding 7,000,000,000 Rebels, is avoiding the obvious necessity to Destroy Al Aqsa [the sooner, the better, otherwise messages out of the blue become exponentially that much more graphic courtesy of El Elian=]

Hypocrisy of the Anti-Israel BDS Movement
by Mr. Cohen, 2015 June 7, updated 2015 June 8

In year 2012 CE, the U.S. State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Report revealed 17 countries that still practice or tolerate slavery: Algeria, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Kuwait, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Papua New Guinea, Yemen, Madagascar, Eritrea, Zimbabwe, DR Congo, Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea, and Cuba.

Notice that NONE of these 17 countries is suffers the wrath of the BDS movement, no matter how guilty they are of practicing slavery.

Also notice that most of these countries are MUSLIM, which means that the Far-Left-dominated news media will NEVER give them the criticism they deserve, because the Far-Leftists are the loyal allies of the Muslims.

Last but not least, the Far-Left-dominated BDS movement will NEVER target these counties with boycotts, because the Far-Leftists are the loyal allies of the Muslims.

According to the year 2014 CE Freedom in the World Report, the ten most oppressive countries in the world are: Central African Republic, Somalia, Equatorial Guinea, Sudan, Eritrea, Syria, North Korea, Turkmenistan, Saudi Arabia, and Uzbekistan.

Notice that NONE of these ten countries is suffers the wrath of the BDS movement, no matter how much they oppress their own citizens.

Since year 1950 CE, China has occupied the land of Tibet and murdered around one million Tibetans. Does China suffer the wrath of the BDS movement? NO!

Russia invaded Georgia in year 2008 CE.
Russia invaded Ukraine in year 2014 CE.
Is Russian boycotted by the BDS movement?
NO! And it never will be.

Pro-Israel Articles from Aish HaTorah:

Mr. Cohen said...


Egyptian Islamic clerics Sheik Said Al-‘Afani and Sheik Muhammad Abd Al-Salam appeared on Egytian Al-Rahma TV on 2009 January 17.

This is what they said:


“(The Jews) are the accursed people, who incurred the wrath of Allah.
They are the offspring of snakes and vipers, the slayers of our Prophet Muhammad, whose death was a consequence of his being poisoned by a Jewish woman.

We should know that the Jews are the slayer of all the prophets.
They killed the prophet Yahya (John the Baptist) and the prophet Zakariya.
The slaughtered the righteous prophet Yahya, and they presented his head as a gift to an Israelite prostitute. Our hatred of them [the Jews] is purely on religious grounds, and not because of the pure, sacred land, which was blessed by Allah, or because of Gaza…

Not only because of Gaza, not only because of [the] al-Aqsa [mosque] and so on.

We hate them [the Jews], first and foremost, because of their enmity towards Allah, and because they slayed our prophets. Let me clarify that it is our duty to hate them, as part of our faith.”


“Right [correct]. People have become confused about this, some think that it is a territorial or national issue, or that it has to do with the blessed Al-Aqsa mosque; but the issue is much broader, it is a matter of faith. We are obligated to hate them because they are a murderous people, and the enemies of all that is good and of Islam.”

Joining pro-Israel organizations might help Israel.
Pro-Israel organizations include:

PS: Since Orthodox Jews are increasing as a percentage of American Jews, they should also increase their participation in pro-Israel organizations, to compensate for the declining numbers of non-Orthodox Jews.
