Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, upon boarding a plane to Washington for what his office says will be a historic address to Congress, said Sunday that he is going as an “emissary of all the citizens of Israel, even those who don’t agree with me, and the entire Jewish people.”

Netanyahu, whose speech has triggered a great deal of friction with the White House said, “I am greatly concerned about the security of the citizens of Israel and I will do what is necessary in order to ensure our future.”

    Correction, as an emissary for every true God believing person on this planet. He is our last hope.

    So he wants all Jewish people judged on the basis of his own personal opinions?

    And you would seriously seek to re-elect a person of such arrogance who paints an entire “people” with the colours and brushes of his own extreme Israeli Zionism?

    And you wonder who is stirring up antisemitism?

    Politely it’s an “own goal”

    Less politely its self harm

    Zachor, Remember what Amalek did to you when you were leaving Egypt; that he ambushed you on the way, and he struck those of you who were in the rear, all the weakest at your rear, when you were faint and exhausted, and he did not fear Gd. It shall be that when your Gd, gives you rest from all your enemies all around, in the land that, your Gd, gives you as an inheritance to possess it, you shall wipe out the memory of Amalek from under the heaven—you shall not forget!

    What’s most amazing to me is that this war with Amalek continues—that the world is still so concerned with the fate of Israel and the small number of Jews in the world who do not even amount to a percentage of error when calculating the world’s population. The rhetoric is apocalyptic, even Biblical. Why care about Israel and the Jews? It must be a spiritual struggle of the generations. The Torah then has been proven to be incredibly wise in warning us never to forget or worse, to underestimate Amalek the anti-Semite—no matter how he may appear.

    ON Purim and we will read the story of how Haman, a descendant of Amalek, persuaded Achashveros, King of Persia, to destroy the Jews. But it’s also the story of our time! Once again Persia threatens to destroy the Jews, only this time its name has changed. We no longer call it Persia, we call it Iran. Do you know why?

    There was a love fest between Hitler and Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Persia, from the moment Hitler came to power in 1933. The shah was enamored with the concept of the Aryan master race—especially because Nazi racial theorists referred to Aryan origins in the Proto-Indo-European lineage of Persia. So intense was the shah’s identification with the Third Reich that in 1935 he—can you believe this—renamed his ancient country “Iran,” which in Farsi means “Aryan!” From that point on, Iranians were constantly reminded that their country was bonded with Nazi Germany for all time.

    During the war years, Iran became a haven and headquarters for Gestapo agents and German operatives. In Tehran’s marketplace, it was common to see placards that declared, “In heaven, Allah is your master. On Earth, it is Adolf Hitler!” (Edwin Black, 12/19/05, JTA) And so how could the president of Iran now deny that the Holocaust ever happened when his nation is named for Hitler’s master race?

    Let there be no mistake, the ultimate agenda of Iran and Hamas—like that of Hitler’s Germany—is not simply the destruction of Israel, but of the Jewish people. But many—like we saw in the media as Hitler rose to power—prefer to put their heads in the sand hoping it will all go away. They say that President Ahmadinejad is just using anti-Semitic rhetoric to deflect having to deal with domestic problems, and that Hamas will soften when it has to deal with the responsibilities of power, like collecting the garbage.

    Remember, they also said this about Hitler, about the Ayatollah, and even the Taliban when they took control of Afghanistan. The Torah is clear, Amalek and Haman and all of Jewish history teach us that we must take our enemies for their word. They mean what they say and they say what they mean.

    It’s probably best Netanyahu does not meet with Obams. Hugo Chavez claimed he was the anti Christ and that he got cancer when he shook his hand. Wear some gloves made of lamb skin if you get close to him. A few cloves of garlic and a cross May give you some added protection.

    On July 4, 1976, more than a hundred hostages, held at gunpoint in Entebbe, Uganda, were freed in a spectacular rescue operation and flown to safety in Israel, over 2000 miles away. Their captors were Arab and German terrorists, aided by the Ugandan army; their liberators were members of Israel’s elite commando unit, Sayeret Matkal, simply known as “the Unit.” Lt.-Col. Yoni (Jonathan) Netanyahu, the Unit’s commander, earned world-wide fame in the wake of the operation’s stunning success. He was the only Israeli soldier killed in the Entebbe raid. As a brother of the rescue force’s commander, and himself a member of the Unit, Iddo Netanyahu had ready access to the participants in the raid. He was able to obtain detailed accounts from the men of the Unit who, for the first time, described the planning and preparations for the mission and its near-perfect execution. What emerged from their accounts is a powerful and stirring story of how the daring undertaking was accomplished after only 48 hours of frantic preparations. Yoni’s Last Battle portrays the men who carried out an incredibly hazardous operation in far-away Africa. Above all, it depicts the heroic – and tragic – figure of their commander, Yoni.

    User Review – Jason – Goodreads
    A touching tribute to an older brother who is also an Israeli hero. The editing (or maybe it is the translation) could be better at times, and the non-Entebbe material is not always compelling, but certainly the material on the raid itself is outstanding. Read full review
