Meme of the day

Stella observes the beginning of Hanukkah.

I will spend a moment in prayer today, for our Jewish brothers and sisters, and for Israel. May God bless them as they celebrate the Festival Of Lights, and the rededication of the Second Temple.

She also has great Christmas posts daily. I am enjoying them a great deal.

    What a great Menorah! I can imagine the snowflakes here in the US shrieking and clutching their pearls: “What bad taste!” “How warlike!” “Oh nos! They’re provoking the moslems” I say, “Go Israel!” And everyone have a blessed and safe Hanukkah.

    Have a wonderful Hannukkah, everyone.
    I remember my dismay when as either a teen or a young adult, I found out that support for Israel was a political issue, and that Democrats and liberal types were against it.
    Even though so many in Hollywood and liberal organizations are Jews themselves.
    I also was somewhat dismayed when I realized how many people who should know better are under the impression that Islam is the older religion, and the true faith of desert people.

    • Actually, Bendix, the way I remember it, lliberals (including American Jews) loved us as long as we were the underdogs. That changed after the Six-Day War, when the IDF crushed its enemies and were able to secure more strategic borders – no more rockets raining down from the Golan Heights, for example.
      I felt the atmosphere change as my husband and I listened to the news. As soon as it became clear that we (the Israelis) were in no mood to give back what we had won, liberals throughout the world turned on us. Some didn’t even realize that had happened – it had become a habit to support Israel.
      Today, a gap has developed between Israelis and American Jews. Attitudes have changed. Of course, many of us still stand with Israel, but I think that many Israelis now suspect they may not be able to count on us (USA) for much longer. This is why they have made friends with many of their Arab neighbors – Jordan and Saudi Arabia, as well as Egypt. I believe Israelis have much in common with Lebanese, too.
      Don’t be surprised to see peace break out when we least expect. I think it will just become a fait accompli without anyone noticing. In fact, that may be happening now.

    I was amazed at the truth of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s quote when I first heard it.

    It STILL is so true and appropriate.

    God bless Israel, PM Netanyahu and all peace loving people.

    🙏 Happy Hanukkah

    And shame on any and all Jewish Americans that do not support their own but instead support evil, conscience-less human animals.

    I learned about Hanukkah in third grade (back in 1967) from my teacher Mrs. Hillman. She brought into class several dreidels and Hanukkah Gelt (chocolate coins wrapped in gold foil). She taught us how to read the Hebrew letters on each side of the dreidel for Nothing, All, 1/2, and Put In. It was great fun (and we were just learning fractions so we had to “calculate” 1/2 of whatever was in the pot. This became interesting if there were uneven groups playing and there was an odd number of “coins” in the pot when someone rolled the “1/2”.

    Today it would be forbidden because it’s (1) religious and (2) teaching kids to “gamble”. But it was great fun from a kinder time. The fact that I remember this 50 years later speaks volumes of Mrs. Hillman’s being a great teacher. Note: On St. Patrick’s Day she brought in green bagels and cream cheese for us. LOL!

      Shame on you for politicizing this post. Menagerie warned you of not doing so in her earlier post this week when you again brought up this same issue as in this video.

      Based on your lack of respect for her request and others concuring, I request that CTH block you from posting for a while.

      Shame on you. Shame.

      So others will not waste their time watching this, it involves Jews who think that they are more religious than other Jews and believe that Jews are forbidden from having their own homeland again before the coming of their Messiah. They may be sincere, but they are sincerely wrong.

      They are ignoring the inspired word of God in the old testament, and putting more importance on their own uninspired writings.

      Good grief. I clicked over to your About Me post and you seem to indicate that you are a Christian, from your C.S. Lewis post.

      Just how many Messiahs do you expect to come?

      As this post started wth Stella’s meme, m not going to consider it exclusively a religious post, and I haven’t finished the video completely yet, but I will tell you this, if this is your idea of religious discourse, stay off of my Advent posts or I will blacklist you.

      You have thread after thread of political posts, and two open threads a day to post relevant material where it goes.

        Well, frankly Stella’s thread had a political statement. If the political statement had not been there and the thread had referred to the true Miracle of Hanukkah would have been the I would not have posted this video here. I do not know what is sadder… people being mad at me for the video or for disturbing the dearly held misconception of thevnature State of Israel.


        • Menagerie says:

          Well, you cannot say I didn’t try. Numerous people complained about your posts, then we had to go through the troll accusations, which I trashed because they are knee jerk and tiresome. In this case I guess I owe all of them an apology, because they were correct.


          • georgiafl says:

            Julegate is only here to try to delegitimize and slander Israel.


          • julegate says:

            Boy Im really sorry. I ment to bring something to light i thought people would care about. I thought people cared about the Jewish people. I mean that very sincerely. My Jewish friend and I discussed the video and we agreed it was shocking to us both. I did some research on what the one gentleman said in the video. Turns out he is right. I was going to post this and ask people to investigate themselves. I donot wish to cause problems and apologize to you and hope you will forgive me. I have enjoyed your blog and I think everyone means well. At this point I think it best I move on. Having investigated this video and having found it to be true I would only cause problems for you all and do not wish to. May we part as being at peace? I hope so. God bless you.

            Sincerely, Julia


            • Menagerie says:

              Julegate, your apology is kind, but I think you are being biased and unfair to fellow Treepers. You have a specific viewpoint you are coming from, and you choose to condemn others who do not agree with you as not caring about the Jewish people, while everyone on this thread was very positive.

              I will remove you from moderation, and you may stay or go as you wish, but if you can’t respect our other commenters viewpoints, refrain from these kinds of posts please.

                Well, that was certainly not what I was trying to do. I do not wish to come across as disrespectful so I hope you will forgive me. Again, I hope we are departing in peace.


    • boogywstew says:

      What is more interesting, to me, anyways, is WHY you choose to post this video here and on another CTH thread, today, of all days? It must be important to you because you posted it at least TWICE and you made sure to post it on the first day of Hanukkah. Perhaps you are the type of person who goes to weddings to further family grudges or embarrass family members with events out of their past that they’d rather forget. I guarantee you everyone who posted a comment here today out of love for their Jewish brothers and sisters is well aware that not all Jews agree about everything all the time. Maybe today you could do some soul searching as to why you HAD to post your little video, here, and now? Didn’t your mom teach you that … “There’s a time and a place for everything!” ? Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

        No. I posted it twice because I wanted people to see how Jewish people were treated and that people on this blog cared about the Jewish people. As I am finding out it may not be. What is dearer is not the truth but dearly heald beliefs that are not line up with truth. My Mom did a great job raising me. She always taught me to stand up for those being abused. That is why I posted the video. I have done alot of soul searching. I even sent this video to my Jewish Christian friend on Hanukkah. She was sadden by it and because she has known me for over 20 years knows I always stand up for those who are mistreated and it is always in season to stand up for anyone who is mistreated.

    A blessed Hanukkah to all Jewish Treeper. We stand with Israel. We shouldn’t forget that without Judaism we wouldn’t have Christianity.
