Obamacare, abortion and taxes

A sensible scripture-based answer to the question of “should we pay taxes which possibly will go to support abortion?” Render unto Caesar

Remembering Hebron

Israel recently observed the 80th anniversary one of the worst massacres in the history of the Palestine area. Another good example of Islam as a “peaceful” religion. The propaganda about the existence of Israel and US support being the reason for the on-going atrocities in the Middle East is bunk. It id the htred and violence of the Oslamic religion that is the source....

Reaching for the Holy

From a man I admire greatly, Rabbi Moshe Kempinski of Jerusalem I am My Beloved’s and My Beloved is Mine. Moshe Kempinski The old city of Jerusalem during these evenings is awash with people. They arrive in large groups. They arrive with their families. They arrive alone. They do not come as tourists. They are not here to tour any location. They are not here to see anything. They are here to feel and listen. During the days of Elul and Tishrei each individual soul undergoes a spiritual voyage that is unparalleled in its intensity and awesome in its implications. It is in the month of Elul that we begin again the courtship with the Beloved and the Hebrew letters that make up the word Elul are also the first letters of the verse ” Ani Ledodi VeDodi Lee-I Am My Beloved’s and my Beloved is Mine. This powerful verse comes from the ultimate love poem written by King Solomon as beautiful allegory of a love story between the infinite and the finite. The great sage Rabbi Akiba declared, “Heaven forbid that any man in Israel ever disputed that the Song of Songs is holy. For the whole world is not worth the day on which the Song of Songs was given to Israel, for all the Writings are holy and the Song of Songs is holy of holies.” (Mishnah Yadayim 3:5). It is clearly an allegory as the young maiden and her beloved keeps changing. At times he is a shepherd, at times a king and the young maiden keeps changing roles as well. During the month of...

Obama’s Education in Anti-Semitism

An interesting perspective from someone with a similar background to THE ONE. ISRAEL NEWS UPDATE, INSIGHTS AND VIEWS Share Tue at 11:19am THE SOURCE OF OBAMA’S ANTI-ISRAEL POLICY BY E.W. Jackson Sr. E. W. Jackson is Bishop of Exodus Faith Ministries, an author and retired attorney. Like Obama, I am a graduate of Harvard Law School. I too have Muslims in my family. I am black, and I was once a leftist Democrat. Since our backgrounds are somewhat similar, I perceive something in Obama’s policy toward Israel which people without that background may not see. All my life I have witnessed a strain of anti-Semitism in the black community. It has been fuelled by the rise of the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan, but it predates that organization. We heard it in Jesse Jackson’s “HYMIE town” remark years ago during his presidential campaign. We heard it most recently in Jeremiah Wright’s remark about “them Jews” not allowing Obama to speak with him. I hear it from my own Muslim family members who see the problem in the Middle East as a “Jew” problem. Growing up in a small, predominantly black urban community in Pennsylvania, I heard the comments about Jewish shop owners. They were “greedy cheaters” who could not be trusted, according to my family and others in the neighborhood. I was too young to understand what it means to be Jewish, or know that I was hearing anti-Semitism. These people seemed nice enough to me, but others said they were “evil”. Sadly, this bigotry has yet to be eradicated from the black community. In Chicago, the anti-Jewish...
