The earth is flat.
The Temple Mount is associated only with Muslims and Islam, as are the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Just as we would never enter into a discussion about the first premise, so, too, we must not enter into a discussion about the second one. That ship of fools has sailed. And it has capsized dead in the water.
Let the antisemites talk among themselves. Let their rhetoric soar, together with the UN, an organization that is run by Muslims who call for “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” and “Death to the West,” and death to the ethic the Jewish people gave to world, making liberal democracy possible.
Let them spend their time discussing among themselves these ridiculous statements.
We Jews are few in number – 15 million. We cannot afford to expend our limited energy on “stupid.” Let’s expend our energy on building in our historical and legal homeland. Let us reinforce our eternal legacy.
Speaking of building. Obama and his antisemitic JINO (Jews in Name Only) cabal are still planning to push Israel under a bus regarding building “settlements” – I call them communities in Judea/Samaria – before he leaves office. There will be no Jews in the West Bank, says Obama. Does that also mean there will be no Muslims in Israel?
With all the horror going on in the world today – the torture of women and children by Radical Islamists; the wanton murder of Christians and Yezidis by Islamic terrorists; the abuse of women in Muslim countries, where they have no human rights, let alone civil rights; the failure of Venezuela, Turkey and other democracies around the world, and Iran turning to the dark side, Obama and his cabal will spend their last breaths in office trying to destroy Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, the Light Unto the Nations.
Whatever Obama plans, those plans will be undone the minute President-elect Trump takes office. So let them bluster, threaten, harangue and bully.
Let them attack the Jews, but let us not respond in any way.
Let us not add fuel to the fire.
Let us respond with Silence. And that way Obama will leave office, not with a bang, but with a whimper. And when journalism returns there will be analyses of his presidency that will finally be blind to color and report that he has been the worst in modern times. He has done more damage to world peace than Stalin and Putin combined.
His polices blew up the Middle East setting forth millions of Muslim refugees, including many people whose values are not our values in any way shape or form. And rather than insisting that Muslim countries take in their brethren and shelter them through their storm, he pushed for them to migrate throughout the West, while calling out those who hesitated to accept them as racists. He demanded that their worldview be included in ours, despite the fact that the ideology of Radical Islam is the most intolerant and barbaric ideology known to the free world.
It is time, dear Jews, to stand together and protect Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael – the Nation of Israel and the Land of Israel – from attack from those who truly want to see chaos in the world and the destruction of democracy.
It is time to stop wasting our time discussing the preposterous and, therefore, validating the ridiculous.
It is time to stop defending our right to have Jewish people live anywhere between the river and the sea in Israel.
No one, anywhere, anytime, anymore has the right to put us in our place – into any ghetto, ever again. We need politicians in Israel to stand for that.
And remember, when Obama finally leaves the White House and Trump moves in, God-willing, America will be the true ally of Israel, and when America stands behind and beside Israel, so too will Europe.
