Messianic Jewish Hate Campaign Against Real Jews in Full Swing

Using the Ariel bombing as an excuse, Christian cults operating in Israel under the name Messianic Jews, particularly in Arad, have begun a campaign of hate against Jews.

Like Scientologists, the cults calling themselves Messianic Jews claim that they’re being persecuted. Numerous videos across YouTube with titles like “Now This is Why Everyone Hates Jews” document clashes that they generate with Jews. Meanwhile more “sympathetic” stories are being run on the Jerusalem Post which relies heavily on Christian dollars about how they’re persecuted. Not a word about the violent attacks, fraud and child abuse perpetrated by these cult members or their rabid hatred of Jews.

These cults calling themselves Messianic Jews operating in Israel are non-Jewish and actually violently hateful toward Jews. They sometimes try to disguise it with a Pro-Israel veneer but give them 5 minutes and they begin ranting about Pharisees and the Synagogue of Satan, Kabbalistic Satanism and really unleashing a vile torrent of filth. Aviad Cohen’s old videos before he had them taken down (formerly 50 Shekel) and a prominent cult member were typical of these.

The Messianic Jews are really Non-Jewish Christians with messed up belief systems ranging from carrying out present day sacrifices to believing that Jesus (or as they call Jesus, Yeshua) came on a UFO. They’re into defrauding people, bringing them into the cult and working them non-stop and siphoning away their life savings. Just like Scientology.

But these phony cults which call themselves Messianic Jewish synagogues and come with fake Rabbis don’t just take advantage of Jews, they take advantage of Christians. Rabbi Ari Crockett is a typical example. Messianic Jewish cults may call themselves Jewish but they’re mostly made up of Christians, which means they target Christians for cult membership. Christians who sympathize with them should remember that their sons and daughters could be next and that while that these fake Messianic Jews may talk a lot about Jesus, they’re no different than the Moonies or Harei Krishnas or any other cult.

They target both Jews and Christians for their cults. They use lies and deceit. They have lawyers to protect their cult leaders from their crimes. They use violence and terroristic threats. And their goal is to take control of people’s lives.

The most famous Messianic Jewish cult died horribly at Waco Texas when they murdered Federal agents to protect their child molesting leader, David Koresh. Like most messianic groups, they were mostly Christians with a handful of Jews. They were filled with hate for the outside world by their leader and willing to do anything.

It’s natural that Jews in Israel don’t want such people or such cults setting up shop. Just as virtually no country in the world allows them to set up their cults. So they’ve resorted to a Pro-Israel veneer running sites like IsraelToday.co.il that pretend to be Pro-Israel on the surface to shake down Christians and Jews for money. At Arad and with thugs like Eddie Beckford leading them, it’s easy to see their real face. Despite all the lies put out on the web by their messianic cult, the messianic cult in Arad, Eddie Beckford and his followers are the primary source of hate waging a ruthless campaign against the Jews of Arad.

In the town of Arad Messianic cult leaders like Eddie Beckford have waged a campaign of hate against Jews while using Messianic outlets to present themselves as innocent victims. Yet the above video which shows Eddie Beckford trying to run down a Jewish man doesn’t show an innocent victim. There are other videos that show violent assaults. Yet Beckford’s Arad cult has successfully blanketed YouTube with numerous videos filled with hate for Jews while portraying themselves as the victims based on a shouting match with some Orthodox Jews. What their videos don’t show is the violent assaults they’ve committed against Orthodox Jews.

Jews should stand with our fellow Jews of Arad against Eddie Beckford and his creepy cult and hateful intentions. Donate to Yad Leachim‘s programs and flag the Arad videos as hateful if you come across them.

This is What Happens When Foreigners Staff Hospitals

America is the country of immigrants, except unfortunately these days it’s the country of illiterate immigrants handling services in English, a language they don’t actually speak.

Me: (calling hospital) “Hello I’d like to make an appointment to Dr. XYZ”

Heavily Accented Asian Lady: “What department is he in.”

Me: “I don’t know. He’s a GP. General Practitioner.”

Heavily Accented Asian Lady: “GP. Ah, ok. GP department.”

And there went another chunk of my day. I’ve been to a post office that has staff based on race and ethnicity, not based on competence. The very nice Chinese man at the package window CANNOT READ ENGLISH. He barely speaks English. I have no idea how he passed his civil service exam but he could not actually read what was written on the packages. Getting a package from him, if you weren’t Chinese was a long grueling process. The last time it took 15 minutes until he finally got another Chinese lady who can read English but who was openly rude and hostile, telling people to leave and not come back.

When government facilities and hospitals cant seem to find anyone to record messages who doesn’t speak with a heavy accent, there’s something seriously wrong.

Hair Paradoxes

Spinning off a Frumhouse discussion on the topic, hair was a powerful idea for men and women in the Torah.

On the one hand the Sotah’s hair is loosened and unbound. On the other part of the Nazir’s restraint involves growing out his hair and not cutting it. For the ultimate Nazir, Shimshon’s hair is literally the seat of his power. Paradoxically the Kohanim shaved their hair before entering service in the Mishkan. As does the Nazir at the end of his Nezirut.

Hair on the head was a symbol of power, an extension of the body. And power could be restrained or unbound. The Torah has a number of prohibitions on shaving and destroying hair. This represents the tension between the extremes, excessive asceticism and excessive hedonism. The Nazir was one extreme and the Kohen was another. Most people fall somewhere in between.

Hair on the body tends not to be referenced. Unlike Greeks, Jews were not overly concerned with personal grooming except in the Hellenized upper class. Sanhedrin 21a does feature the quoted view of R. Yitzchak but the context of the Gemara is clearly not hostile to Tamar. The larger picture is that David Hamelech’s own indulgences created the complicated family situation that resulted in rebellions and Tamar’s rape and the fight for power.

David Hamelech himself has been compared to Esav who was called the hairy one.

I Propose a Ban on Bans

If the Jew living in the Dor of Moshe Rabbeinu had a few hundred Issurim to deal with, by the end of Bayit Sheni the number of things forbidden had ballooned to the high thousands and by 1000 CE was several times that and today it’s virtually ad infinitum.

Part of that is the expanded capability created by technology and social organization to control and create new permissible and impermissible zones. The entire Hasgacha industry was created when it became possible to regulate every single thing we eat, right down to the plates and the condiments. When a century ago we went and bought some cheese from a farmer or killed a chicken out back, today we have deal with vortexes of kosher accreditations.

But if there’s anything we should have learned with our bout with the golden calf in the recent parsha is that we suck at keeping even basic things. If the great Dor of the Midbar couldn’t even manage to not sorta worship idols a month after Har Sinai, what are the odds that we can successfully keep a 1000 times the Issurim they ever had to deal with.

And the question of the day is whether we’re actually any better at the big stuff, such as not doing adultery, theft or worshiping idols or oppressing our brother? How about Sinas Chinam? And forget about that Tikkun Olam misnomer.

Let’s put a hold on the strawberries and the tap water and the hemlines and let’s look at the basic stuff. The average Jew today has far more responsibilities than the Dor of the Midbar did with way less to prop up our emunah. The answer is not more bans, the answer is less.

We’ve wrapped everything up in chumras and gederim ad le shamayim but it hasn’t brought us any closer to shamayim. Not when there’s so many things wrong in our communities.

Announcing the Douchebags of the Week!

All around the great big ball of smelly wax of the world, round and round the ball goes and where it stops… it stops at Douchebag Station. Douchebags stand at attention, this is your finest hour.

The first douchebag of the week is New York State Governor Elliot Spitzer who thought the law applied to everyone but him. He loved the media so much he used it to constantly leak stories about his enemies. Now he’s getting the asskicking he deserves. Good riddance.

 

The second douchebag of the week is George W. Bush who tanked the economy, smashed up the military and didn’t actually accomplish anything except to bring electrical power to some part of some godforsaken camelhumper country that would have been better off staying bombed into the dark ages.

Now Georgie showed up at the Kuwait-American foundation, spinoff of the Citizens for a Free Kuwait group that tricked America into the Gulf War in the first place, saying that his African program isn’t his program, it’s a gift from the American people. Screw you George, the American people hate your guts. You want to give out gift, give us a gift so we can actually afford to buy flour, you privileged Ivy League moron zombie.

 

The third douchebag of the week is Tzvee Zahavy who hates Jews so much he linked approvingly to Richard Silverstein’s blog Tikkun Olam where Richard was busy bashing an Orthodox Rabbi. Tikkun Olam is Richard Silverstein’s platform for praising terrorists. Tzvee Zahavy obviously doesn’t have the guts to praise them himself, so he gives a little tip of the hat to Richie instead.

 

The fourth douchebag of the week is Ben Affleck who harnessed the great fame he’s gotten from appearing in a whole lot of crap no one has ever seen in exchange for money who’s now leading Hollywood to get more involved in electing Obama. Great idea Ben, you know how the average person hates actors who won’t shut up about politics. Yeah, now you can harness their hatred for Obama. Now go make Gigli 2 or Reindeer Games 2: The Reindeering.

 

The fifth douchebag of the week isn’t just Rabbi Michael Lerner who just had to write up that Daily Kos diary ranking the dead teenagers in Mercaz HaRav with the dead terrorists in Gaza. It was ever douchebag liberal Jblogger who found a backdoor way of saying the same thing.I hope you all rot in hell and I hope you get trapped in an elevator for 3 days with Michael Lerner to see which of you will eat the other first. I still bet on Lerner because he’s one fat bastard.

So You’re Single? Stop Whining About It.

So today I came across another blog post by a whiny single and it’s like all the rest. To spare you the emotional pain of linking to it, I’ll just break down what singles complain about.

1. People setting singles up

2. People not setting singles up

3. People asking singles if they’re single and trying to set them up

4. People not asking singles if they’re single and want to be set up

What singles really complain about is being single. But by singles I don’t mean people who aren’t married. I mean people who can’t stop talking about wanting to meet the right person to marry. I’m single but I’m not a Single. In other words I’m not a whining neurotic obsessed ball of pain that can’t stop spewing up like a beached whale with food poisoning and a wide blowhole.

What should the “community” do for singles? Zero. Zippo. Absolutely nothing. Yeah you heard me right.

No wait, I’m wrong. The community should do one thing. It should get out of the way. It should dump the idiotic social mores and restrictions. Let people date. Let people meet up at work. Let people from different hashkafos date. Socialize boys and girls in their teenage years. Have actual dances.

Either that or match them up by random lottery, parents income, yichus and shoe size and marry them off to each other at 13. One or the other because it’s the stupid attempt to find some middle ground that partakes of the stupidity of 18th century Eastern Europe and the modern day American dating scene that’s the problem.

If you’re an average or above looking woman or an average earning or above man, there’s no reason you can’t get married. You’ve chosen not to get married, because of insecurity or refusal to lower your standards or living in Nome, Alaska. Good for you. I’m a big believer in free will but your problems are changeable.

Now don’t get me wrong. This isn’t some “Settle and Get Married” post. I don’t care what you do, I just want you all to stop whining about it.

If you want to look for the perfect mate, have fun because there isn’t one. If you want to look for someone it feels right with, remember that gamblers spend their life savings on horses and casino wheels that feel right to them. It’s an emotion and like all the other emotions bouncing around in your head, it’s the whole problem.

You aren’t going to find the perfect guy or girl. You’re just going to find the one you’ll be willing to settle for after 5 years of JDate misery and the “big revelation” then will be that you had to go through all that suffering and bad dates in order to learn to lower your expectations. Because guess what, life sucks.

The perfect guy and girl you marry will be just like the rest when the hormones wear off and the cute things they do stop being cute. Then you’ll have to learn to live with them anyway and try to like them or at least not hate them enough to chop them up and throw them off a bridge. Welcome to married life. It’s what you wanted. Now you’ve got it. And stop whining about it.

Tear Your Bloody Tzizit!

Is this enough for you yet, you bastards?

Is this enough for you yet Shas? 300 million shekels. How many dead boys does that buy? How many votes does that buy. 30 million shekels a boy was the deal, eh Ovadya? Clutch those bloody shekels tightly you bastard and dream of making your idiot son Chief Rabbi of Yerushalayim, the city you’re bargaining away.

Is this enough yet for you, you idiots with your concert ban, as if not being able to hear Lipa do his best Chassidish tinged Shlock Rock impression was the biggest issue in the world? Is that enough for you? Enough with your petitions and your idiots posts complaining about the Gedolim? You want to know what your Gedolim did? Take a look at those bloody tzizit. That’s what they did. And that’s what you should have been outraged about. THAT!

Is this enough for you yet, you Obama defenders who step over blood to vote for the liberal idols?

Is this enough for you yet, you machers, you chappers, you kochleffels and you tehilim readers. Go read tehilim over the bodies of the dead and see if it will bring back a single one. Stop reading your Tehilim and cry out, cry out against the governments, demand action, shout, scream, behave like maniacs. Do something but don’t sit still and do nothing.

Is this enough for you yet, you petty fools with your petty fights? Is this enough with your chumras and your egalitarian minyans and your strawberries and your zoo rabbis. Does any of that really matter in the face of those bloody Tzizit? Or is it all foolishness and vanity, small minds and egos battering against each other while our brothers die?

Is this enough for you yet? In the name of God Almighty, if this is not enough for you yet, then what in the name of heaven and earth will suffice?

Are you mad that you sit and do nothing, that in an instant you go back to your old squabbling as if any of it mattered? Hold up these bloody tzizit, torn by bullets. Hold them up to the light. Blood will never wash out of them, the stain will always remain. Our Tzizit are torn and bloody. Our nation is torn and bloody and we wander like fools.

Is there no crime, no deed that will wake you from your suburban homes, your upper west side apartments? Nothing that will make you tear your hair, shout, scream and demand justice? Or are you as dead inside as they already are.

Tear your bloody Tzizit, tear them away, shred them on the earth, wash your hands of the blood but it cannot be washed away. Raise your voice in Zion, blow the Shofar and for once in your miserable empty lives, stand up for your brothers.
