Mon Aug 5th Todays News

Happy birthday and many happy returns Kristy Morgan and David Doig. Born on the same day, across the years, as Thomas Lynch, Jr. (1749), Niels Henrik Abel (1802), Edward John Eyre (1815), Harry Trott (1866), Harold Holt (1908), Neil Armstrong (1930), Angry Anderson (1947), Maureen McCormick (1956) and Rachel Scott (1981). On your day, Independence Day in Burkina Faso (1960); Civic Holiday in most areas of Canada (2013); International Beer Day
25 – Guangwu claimed the throne as emperor of the Han Dynasty after Wang Mang, who had seized the throne himself and proclaimed the Xin Dynasty, died when peasant rebels besieged Chang'an.
1583 – Explorer Humphrey Gilbert established the first English colony in North America at what is now St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
1861 – With the passage of the Revenue Act, the U.S. government issued its first income tax: 3% of all incomes over $800 (later rescinded in 1872).
1925 – The Welsh political party Plaid Cymru was founded with the goals of promoting the Welsh language and the political independence of the Welsh nation.
2003 – A suicide bomber detonated a car bomb outside the lobby of the JW Marriott Hotel in Setiabudi, South Jakarta, Indonesia, killing twelve people and injuring 150. Life trumps death, fight to improve life. Maybe you know Welsh, in which case Plaid is a success. Income tax is higher than 3%, so I guess that worked. Thanks to Humphrey there are labradors? Nothing has been the same since Wang Mang seized the throne. Nothing.

MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE

Tim Blair – Monday, August 05, 2013 (5:19am)

Poll maestro Malcolm Mackerras makes his call: 
I confidently predict there will be a result – and that result will lie somewhere in a range between a landslide to Rudd and a landslide to Abbott. 
Can’t get more precise than that. Meanwhile, reliably wrong Labor loser Bob Ellis posted this on Saturday: 
It seems I was right — of course — and the entire Press Gallery wrong when they said Rudd would advise an election tomorrow or Monday and I said much, much later. 
Ellis looked forward to an October 19 election. Coincidentally, Mackerras picked the same incorrect date back in 2010.

WHEN THE GOING GETS WEIRD, THE WEIRD CALL AN ELECTION

Tim Blair – Monday, August 05, 2013 (4:56am)

Politics is an odd profession, so it naturally tends to attract odd people. Among the most unusual is our Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, whose various personal and family stories are capable of filling the entire parliament’s quota for weirdness.

HUGO GOES

Tim Blair – Monday, August 05, 2013 (3:59am)

Fairfax’s favourite fringe academic and attempted woman-killer goes offline
Feminist blogger Hugo Schwyzer quit the Internet yesterday. Writing on his personal website, the Pasadena City College professor of history and gender studies said that he needed a hiatus in order to prioritize his “fragile” mental health and his relationship to his wife and his children, but his anguish was underscored by intellectual defeat. “I’m done,” he wrote. “I surrender the field to the critics who wanted me gone from feminist spaces.” 
The unusual fellow subsequently decided to kill himself
Hugo Schwyzer, the social sciences academic at Pasadena City College best known as the “porn professor,” tried to commit suicide last night …
“I took an entire bottle of Klonapin,” he said. That’s a muscle relaxant and anti-anxiety drug.
Schwyzer said he’s physically OK but reiterated how the social media fallout from a sexting relationship with a sometime porn star and multiple affairs with women made his marriage “over” and sunk him into a deep depression. 
Instead of Klonapin, he should try KFC. It seems to cheer up other Hugos.

JOB SHOVED

Tim Blair – Monday, August 05, 2013 (2:47am)

In the US, an opinion page editor is fired for an anti-Obama headline: 
Free Press editor Drew Johnson has been terminated after placing a headline on an editorial outside of normal editing procedures.
Johnson’s headline, “Take your jobs plan and shove it, Mr. President: Your policies have harmed Chattanooga enough,” appeared on the Free Press page Tuesday, the day President Barack Obama visited the city.
The headline was inappropriate for this newspaper. 
US newspapers are remarkably timid. Johnson later tweeted: “I just became the first person in the history of newspapers to be fired for writing a paper’s most-read article.”
UPDATE. The Boston Globe sells for just $79 million.

How could this government run out of so much money? How can it now promise a surplus?

Andrew Bolt August 05 2013 (8:19am)

Terry McCrann:

THIS is quite literally an election to decide Australia’s future. It starts with one very simple decision.
Do we want to continue down the path we’ve been on for the past six years?…
The two leaders and many of the cabinet might have changed, at the first dumping of the prime minister, and then changed again at the second dumping. But there has been the one, equally incompetent, government running utterly seamlessly through Rudd Mark One, the Gillard experiment, and now Rudd Mark Two…
Two big things are absolutely fundamental. The first is getting our fiscal house in order.
The government effectively announced in its Economic Statement on Friday that it couldn’t or wouldn’t do that.
Trust us, it said, the Budget will get back into the black in 2016-17… But it’s a figure built totally on sand. It assumes the economy will whirr smoothly back to growth. And it assumes a re-elected Rudd government would not embark on a penny of new spending in all of the next three years.
What was all too real in the statement was increased spending right now, and that this year’s deficit would leap from $18 billion to $30 billion.
One simple fact captures all this. Since the last Budget surplus from a Labor government in 1989-90, every Labor Budget since has been in deficit...
UPDATE
Henry Ergas on a government that simply cannot stop spending:
According to [Treasurer Chris] Bowen, the source of our woes is a “massive” writedown in revenues. In reality, receipts are higher as a proportion of GDP than at any time since Labor was elected.
But while commonwealth receipts as a percentage of GDP are expected to be 0.4 per higher this financial year than last, spending as a percentage of GDP has risen two and a half times that: an even larger rise than at the height of Kevin Rudd’s stimulus.
UPDATE
Judith Sloan:

The real purpose of putting out the Economic Statement on Friday was to hem in the Treasury in terms of the release of PEFO in 10 days time…
In all likelihood, the PEFO estimates and projections will be identical to those in the Economic Statement. How could they be otherwise?  But there are some real issues in that statement – in particular, the internal inconsistency of the figures.
Take 2015-16 – unemployment falls from 6 1/4 per cent from the previous year to 5 per cent.  This is a very big fall for a 12 month period, but would only happen if the economy were going gangbusters.
But, here’s the rub – the economy is only going to be growing at 3 per cent.  This just does not make any sense.  Unemployment cannot fall by this amount.
And what about the assumption in the Economic Statement that ratio of total receipts will rise from 23.2 per cent last financial year to 24.8 per cent in 2016-17.
As if – the last time, the ratio was remotely near this figure, there was a series of special factors including the onset of the mining boom, rapid credit growth and above average capital gains tax receipts.  NONE of these factors will be repeated – they are not expected to be repeated as outlined in the statement.
The bottom line is that if all the PEFO does is mimic the Economic Statement, then Treasury will have to hang its head in shame.  The ES was a shoddy document put together for essentially political reasons. We should expect better with PEFO.

Uh oh. Now DisabilityCare is already blowing out, too

Andrew Bolt August 05 2013 (8:06am)

Yet another Labor blowout - this time of a program that always seemed to be a money pit:
DISABILITYCARE Australia is staring down the barrel at its first major multi-million dollar cost blowout, despite its pilot programs only being in operation for a few weeks…
[T]he controversially uncosted program - formerly known as the National Disability Insurance Scheme - has been forced to negotiate a new payment deal with disability service providers.
Its first offer of hourly payment rates was up to 15 per cent less than what providers currently received from state government bodies. The anticipated cost blowout for the government comes amid claims the rough estimates of running DCA - $15 billion per year - will surge in excess of $22 billion when the structure and operating model is finally bedded down…
Disability service groups believe the DCA has no option but to increase their pay rate - as low as $33 an hour for consultations and service provision - or risk the closure of countless providers, the erosion of jobs, and the stalling of the government’s feted disability funding scheme.
Bemused service providers in both Newcastle and Geelong, where the DCA has been running a pilot program since July 1, said they would never be able to operate with the meagre payment offered, with one CEO claiming the pay rate was so low he thought it was an error.

What will be new about this six-year-old Labor Government?

Bizarre. Labor has been in power for six years. Kevin Rudd has been Prime Minister for three of those years. And now Labor promises a new way?
So what will be new about Labor after the election? No more waste? No more wild spending? No more global warming fear-mongering? No more tax hikes? No more rises in joblessness? No more spin? No more stuff ups?
No more Rudd?
What precisely is Labor now offering that is new?

The gap between Khawaja’s bat and the ball is the one between the Left and conservatives

Andrew Bolt August 05 2013 (7:07am)

What’s the difference between the Left and conservatives?  Test batsman Usman Khawaja last week told us exactly.
Khawaja did it by missing a ball in the Third Test by a good inch yet still getting given out - even after a video referral that everyone except the third umpire saw cleared him.
Politicians of the Left had a tribal reaction, or, in Kevin Rudd’s case, a populist one.
“That was one of the worst cricket umpiring decisions I have ever seen,” tweeted the Prime Minister, who until then had never struck anyone as a cricket lover.
Opposition Leader Tony Abbott, however, refused to go the umpire.
Asked on radio if he’d demand a royal commission into the third umpire system, Abbott defended the institution and the tradition of fair play, like a true conservative.
“You know we love umpires when the decisions go our way and we hate them when they don’t, and yes it’s got to be fair.
“But I suspect that there’ll always be controversy about cricketing decisions.”
Same difference on Channel 7’s Sunrise, where Treasurer Chris Bowen went tribal, like a good Labor man.
“I think we should call in the British High Commisisoner today,” he joked.
“I think clearly this is a scandal.”
Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey, however, defended the system and rule of law: “I always accept the umpire’s decision… I’ve always walked”
Only when heckled by the hosts did Hockey – remembering Sunrise viewers also voted – play to the crowd:  “You could put a levy on all the Pommy immigrants.”
I’m generalising about the Left. But that’s the romance that often marks them off from conservatives - the rule of mates over the rule of law; the tribe over principle. 
Think of building union protesters ignoring court orders, shouting “touch one, touch all”.
Think of the pagan anti-McDonald’s protesters stopping the sanctioned construction of an outlet at Tecoma, or the mates rates that has now crippled NSW Labor. 
Add also the multiculturalism push which has tribes negotiating not for equal treatment but favors.
The call of the tribe is strong, and Kwahaja should never have been given out. But more important for cricket is that the umpire’s authority be upheld.
Conservatives understand these things best. For is it’s not the side but the principle.
That makes us less fun, but the game is safer with us.

Why Rush-Rush Rudd had to rush to the polls

Andrew Bolt August 05 2013 (7:02am)

Politics - federal
image
KEVIN Rudd’s “closest advisers” seem to have stampeded him into calling the September 7 election.
They certainly seem to have less faith in the Prime Minister and his shonky “fixes” than he does, and fear time will expose both.
A week ago these unnamed advisers told a Daily Telegraph journalist the Prime Minister was likely to call this election “by the end of the week” .
In fact, Rudd protested on the weekend he still had “a few things to attend to yet”, and it was his “intention” to attend the G20 meeting with world leaders in Russia in the first week of September.
But with weekend papers presenting September 7 as locked in, thanks to more leaks, Rudd had to agree or risk seeming scared.

Don’t think those leaks came from Rudd admirers.
Those “closest advisers” told The Daily Telegraph that for Rudd to hang on much longer would “be political suicide” because things “could turn very pear-shaped”.
Forget Rudd using extra time to show he’s got the gift of governing.
Indeed, his announcements since his return - made to shore up Labor’s greatest weaknesses - are already unravelling.

Rudd says he’ll resettle refugees in Nauru. Nauru says he won’t

Andrew Bolt August 05 2013 (6:52am)

Boat people policy
Yet another of Kevin Rudd’s policy “fixes” turns out to be, well, a lie.
Here’s how Rudd sold the deal he struck with Nauru on Saturday:
Asylum seekers who arrive in Australia by boat can now be processed in Nauru and, if found to be genuine refugees, can be resettled there under an agreement signed by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Nauru’s president Baron Waqa…
“Our governments have agreed that the Republic of Nauru will not only maintain and extend its regional processing capacity, but it will also provide a settlement opportunity to persons it determines are in need of international protection,” Mr Rudd said.
“This means that those seeking safe haven will have the opportunity to settle and reside in Nauru.”
In fact:

NAURU says ...none of the asylum seekers would get citizenship or be considered permanent residents.
“These people are coming here and they will be staying here and in transit,” Nauru’s official spokeswoman, Joanna Olsen, told Fairfax Media.
“It is not permanent settlement. It is considered long-term stay. It is still temporary in the government’s view and they will eventually be moved on.”
Astonishing. How can anyone trust a word Rudd says?
Oh, and the cost of Rudd’s fake fix? Another $30 million.
UPDATE
Greg Sheridan:

ONE key reason Kevin Rudd decided to go the election early is because his Papua New Guinea Solution on boatpeople, and its Nauru annexe, is collapsing. The longer the government was in office, the more obvious that would have become…
With the new boats over the weekend, a total now of 1765 boatpeople have arrived since Rudd announced the PNG solution.
In the past week, the government has sent 66 boatpeople to Manus Island.  In that same week, 366 boatpeople have arrived. That means arrivals are outnumbering departures by substantially more than five to one, or 300 a week...

The first election of Australia’s post-resources boom era marks the end of a decade of rising national prosperity. Now the money has run out. The economy is in trouble. And the dysfunctional politics of the past three years must end. Under both Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard, Labor has shown itself to be structurally unfit to govern.

Rudd announces he will be positively negative

Andrew Bolt August 05 2013 (6:02am)

Kevin Rudd in his press conference yesterday says no to negative politics:

The Australian people therefore face a real choice for this election. A real choice. A choice between a new way for the future - with positive plans for managing the economic challenges we face – as opposed to the old negative politics and three word slogans of the past… The choice also between bringing the nation together behind a positive plan that most of us would readily agree to as opposed to an approach which tends instead to rip the country apart and to polarise it.
That’s not my way, that’s not my approach, I also don’t believe it’s the Australian way.

Kevin Rudd in his press conference yesterday says yes to negative politics:

Mr Abbott’s plan by contrast is a $70 billion slash and burn austerity drive… Unfortunately, Mr Abbott has said ... Unfortunately Mr Abbott has form on hospitals… Mr Abbott, a climate change denier… Mr Abbott would be Prime Minister as of today… Mr Abbott’s advertising campaign will be massive, funded by massive was chest he has amassed from a whole range of vested interests in industry, not least, the tobacco companies.
UPDATE
For the first time I can recall, a Prime Minister uses his speech announcing the election to cadge for cash:

That’s why I am asking you, the Australian people, those of who support a new way of handling the challenges we challenges we face in the future to come on board.
We need each and every one of you to volunteer your time, your effort, your enthusiasm and maybe even send us a $10 donation.
I can’t say the response by bedtime to that appeal - and the email solicitation sent even to newspaper editors - was overwhelming:

Rudd goes for Tim Blair’s throat

Andrew Bolt August 05 2013 (5:55am)

Tim Blair on a very strange prime minister:

My only meeting to date with the PM took place in early 2009, when Rudd was riding high in the polls during his first term. He was attending the first day of the Test match in that summer’s series against South Africa.
At one point Rudd joined our small group – me, a TV exec and a newspaper editor – for a chat. It was friendly enough. I asked, for no particular reason, if he’d seen any recent polling figures for Julia Gillard. Rudd laughed: “He never stops, does he?”
My attention drifted a little as the conversation went on – there was a cricket match happening, after all, and for all I knew Colin Cowdrey might have been playing – but returned when I became aware of Kevin Rudd’s hand around my neck.
It wasn’t quite touching. He just sort of held it there, presumably to illustrate a point he was making about maintaining political advantage. And held it there. And held it there.
I didn’t feel threatened – Rudd isn’t a threatening presence at all – but it was definitely more than a little awkward. Then, as he took his hand away, Rudd’s index finger quickly traced a line across my throat.
Most likely it was accidental. Hey, it’s easy for friendly gestures to be misinterpreted when your hand is around the neck of someone you’ve just met.
Eventually Rudd was called away. The exec turned to me and said: “What the hell was that about?”

Sure, the youth vote and all that. But a bit more gravitas and and a little less street-talk might be more appropriate from the First Lady:

Newspoll: Labor 48 to Coalition 52

Andrew Bolt August 05 2013 (5:32am)

The second poll of the campaign also puts the Coalition ahead, with Kevin Rudd’s lead as preferred Prime Minister slipping:
On a two-party preferred basis, after the distribution of preferences based on the 2010 election, the Coalition has maintained its election-winning lead of 52 per cent to Labor’s 48 per cent, which is unchanged since mid-July…
According to the latest Newspoll survey, conducted exclusively for The Australian on the weekend, voter satisfaction with Mr Rudd dropped four percentage points in the past two weeks from 42 per cent to 38 per cent and dissatisfaction jumped six points from 41 per cent to 47 per cent…
The Opposition Leader’s satisfaction rating continued its poor run for all of this year at 34 per cent, down a point from two weeks ago, as dissatisfaction remained an unchanged 56 per cent…
On the question of who would make the better prime minister, Mr Rudd’s support dropped from 50 per cent two weeks ago to 47 per cent ... Support for Mr Abbott was steady on 33 per cent...

Rocker Rings from the Award Winning Designer Jeffrey Appling
===
Israel has been much criticised for the detainment and treatment of Palestinian children. Since 2000, more than 8,000 Palestinian youths have been arrested, some of them as young as 12. As of June 2013, over 230 Palestinian children remain in Israeli custody. 44 of them are under the age of 16.

The initial and natural reaction is to reject (or at best, question) such procedures, as they contradict our romantic idea of the innocence and purity of children. However, the sharp and often simplistic criticism directed at Israel ignores the underlying problem.

The question we must ask is: why is Israel confronted with a generation of Palestinian children which exhibits the behaviour of politically radicalised adults and, as a result, poses a potential threat to the security of Israel and the safety of its citizens?

This phenomenon originates in Palestinian society and has become deeply entrenched over time. Children, from the earliest age, are being taught by their families, communities and political establishment to hate Jews and Israel.

An illuminating example is the annual summer camps run by Islamic terrorist organisation Hamas, in which hundreds of thousands of children take part each year. These are not summer camps in any traditional sense but semi-military recruitment centres, where children learn to shoot with Kalashnikov rifles, handle hand grenades, and simulate kidnapping of IDF soldiers. They are being groomed for martyrdom, the accomplishment of which is celebrated in the name of the infinite plight of the Palestinian people.

Sisa Ngombane, the new South African Ambassador to Israel, needs to get himself an education very quickly.

The headline of his Jerusalem Post interview read “For us, Hamas in a national liberation movement.” Wrong, Mr Ambassador! Hamas is a religion liberation movement. Lesson number one. Try reading the Hamas Charter, the part that says “Oh Muslim! There’s a Jew hiding behind me. Go out and kill him!”
The Ambassador thinks that this Islamic terror organization has “legitimate grounds to exist” because he supports the armed struggle.

Mr. Ngombane thinks that “Hamas is a work in progress.” Yes, Mr. Ambassador. Hamas is progressing and developing its aim of eliminating Israel. This is part of your first lesson. Read its Charter to understand what Hamas truly stands for. It is not simply a state of their own, but a state instead of Israel, free of Jews.

Introducing Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor!

ONCE UPON A TIME...

Once upon a time there was a very vain Prime Minister who made many mistakes. So many silly mistakes that the country was in terrible trouble so, in desperation, he was finally knifed in the back by a former friend.

The vain Prime Minister cried on the steps of Parliament House. People were very unhappy that the leader they voted for was disposed of in such a horrible way.

They wanted him back, so they took to the highways and byways and shopping malls. They mobbed him and wanted photos taken with him. He appeared to be more popular than when they first voted for him.

Eventually a new election was arranged to allow the people to right this awful wrong.

But a strange thing happened.

On the way to the polling booths everyone paused. They remembered just how silly their vain Prime Minister had been.

When the election results were known, it was clear the people had put their country first. Their vain Prime Minister had been wiped out in a landslide.

The people were incredulous at what they had just done, but in a funny way they knew it was the right thing to do. Charisma alone was insufficient for their vote.

But the vain Prime Minister was okay... he accepted a very important position overseas, where he preferred to be anyway.

That was in 1975 and history never repeats itself... or does it?

The end

More than 1,000 international lawyers, ambassadors and professors from 30 different countries signed a petition protesting the European Union’s recent funding ban on Israel’s settlements.
Israel’s former ambassador to Canada and legal advisor, Alan Baker, who heads the Legal Forum for Israel’s International Action Division, initiated the petition and an accompanying letter, which drew widespread support across the world.
The Legal Forum, a legal advocacy group established in 2004, sent out the petition and protest letter to EU officials earlier this week.

Contrary to mainstream media reports, momentum for peaceful relations with the State of Israel is building among the Iranian people.
“I think there are many Iranians who live for the day that Iran has diplomatic relations with Israel,” says Mhyar Shams Ahmadi, who was born in Tehran 28 years ago but now lives in Toronto. “In my view, if you just look at relations between Iran and Israel, it is clear that it is in fact the ruling regime in Iran that is preventing diplomatic relations.”
Ahmadi is inspired by the high-tech advances and Western-style democracy that Israeli society has achieved.  “Israel is already serving as a model for Iran, and other countries, on how to treat women and minorities,” he says. “Much like Canada, Israel does not oppress its citizens and allows them to think freely without fear of being persecuted no matter what your religion or beliefs are.”

New evidence indicates that some of the pro-Morsi protesters reportedly killed by the Egyptian military, after the Muslim Brotherhood president's ouster, were actually killed by fellow pro-Morsi protesters. They did this, according to the report, to frame the military, incite more Islamist violence and unrest, and garner sympathy from America, which has been extremely critical of the military, especially in the context of the post-Morsi violence.
The Arabic satellite program, Al Dalil, ("The Evidence") recently showed the evidence, which consisted mostly of video recordings.
One video records events on July 8, during pro-Morsi protests in front of the Republican Guard building in Cairo, where Morsi was being held, and where the bloodshed between the military and Brotherhood began. The video shows a young man with a shaven head and a Salafi-style beard approaching the Republican Guard barrier; he gets shot, collapses to the ground, and dies—as other protesters fly into a rage against the military. As the video plays, it seems clear that the military shot him.

I want to read it to you. Ze'ev Jabotisnky of course was the greatest of the Zionist leaders of his time and in 1938 he was appealing to the Jews of Poland and Europe to escape, to run, to leave before tragedy struck them. And the Bundt issued the following leaflet, which has been translated from Yiddish into English,
"To the Jewish workers and the Jewish masses of Vilna, the spiritual father of Jewish fascism, the paper general Jabotisnky is coming to Vilna. Of late this adventurer and charlatan has become very popular with the Jewish workers and Jewish masses of Vilna; show your contempt for the Purim general and give him this command: Get out! Evacuate yourself along with your friends from Poland. Down with Fascism, down with Jabotisnky."
When I read this particular leaflet, it reminded me of the truth that nothing ever changes. Nothing ever changes! The Jewish people learns nothing from History, repeats the same tragedies. I cannot begin to tell you, the hate, the sheer psychopathic hate, which is raging today in the state of Israel. Not against Arafat and not against the PLO, and not against Syria but against Jews!
They have created a new label in Israel called "Kahanism", and I want you to know what Kahanism is, Kahanism is a label and an outlet for vicious hatred against Judaism. And those who march against Kahanism tomorrow will march to trample on Judaism.
In Givatayim, a suburb of Tel Aviv 10,000 leftists came from all over the country. Bused in from the Kibbutzim, they cam e with iron bars, they came with stones, they attacked Jews, they beat Jews. The Mayor of Givatayim, a member of the Marach, stood and shouted "laarog otam kaasher hem ktanim!" - kill them while they are still small! This is the face of the left in Israel. And as I watched that crowd, the twisted faces, the obscenities, the curses, I said to myself, now I understand what happened in Israel 40 years ago, at the time of the "HaSidon" - The Season. And everyone must know what happened in those days. It is those that don't know what happened in the past that will live to see it happen again in the present and in the future. In the 1940's these same Kibbutznikim, HaShomer HaTzair, Mapai, Mapam, the same ones that today speak about democracy, and love of all the people, they speak about ethics, and morality... they kidnapped soldiers of the Irgun and the Sternists, and they turned them over to the British, knowing that to be a member of the Irgun was a capital punishment, a death sentence.
They were the ones who in 1948 fired upon the Irgun ship, the Altalena and murdered in cold blood 17 Jews because Menahem Begin was on the ship and they wanted to liquidate Begin. And know who the commander of the operation was, his name was Yitzhak Rabin. He gave the order to fire and to murder 17 Jews;
And know that the next day in the Knesset, the Prime Minister at that time, Ben Gurion rose and in the minutes, he said, "blessed be the holy canon", blessed be the holy canon that murdered 17 Jews!
They speak to us about Democracy and about love? They were the ones who murdered in cold blood in the 1920's one of the leaders of Agudat Israel, Dahan, because he was an anti-Zionist. So you can oppose and anti-Zionist, but to murder a Jew in cold blood? And know who gave the orders: Yitzhak Ben Zvi, the second President of the State of Israel. They speak about Fascism? About hooligans? They turn now to the Sephardic Jews and tell them to watch out for Kahane! They turn to Sephardic Jews? the leftists? I remember what they did, how they destroyed whole communities of Jews from Morocco, and Algeria and Libya, and Tunisia and Egypt, and Syria and Iraq and Yemen! In the 1940's as the State came into being, hundreds of thousands of Jews poured in from Arab countries. Every one of those Jews was a Zionist, a real Zionist, not the Herzl type of Zionist! They were Zionists for 2000 years, "ve techezena enenu leTzion" - may our eyes behold the return to Zion. That was real Zionism.
They were warm Jews, religious Jews, and what happened to them! The leftists from Mapai and Mapam stood and watched as 800,000 Jews poured into the country, and they asked themselves the only question that had any meaning to them, the only thing that bothered them, the thing that meant more to them than the State, than the Jewish people, the question was: "For whom will they vote?" They saw they were all religious Jews, "they will not vote for us" they thought, so they went about purposely in cold blood, to spiritually destroy an entire people.
Jews were put into "mabarot," transit camps, and if there was a job, they asked you "in what school have you registered your child?" and if it was a religious school, there was no job! And they would say, take this paper and take it to the Histadrut school, register your child in a Histadrut school; the Principal will then stamp the paper and you will bring it to the Labor Exchange office and you will get a job. If you wanted a job they would ask, "where is your red book of the Histadrut? You are not a member? No job!" Fascism? I know who the Fascists were and who the Fascists are!
The pitty is, that we waited 37 years to put someone in the Knesset to give to them, just as they gave to us! I have arrived!!
They speak of "kfiat dati" - religious coercion; let me speak to you about religious coercion. In 1948 10,000 Yemenite boys, children, came to Israel without their parents under the auspices of Youth Aliyah. Every Yemenite boy that came to Israel, came with his Shabbat, with his Kashrut, and with his "Simanim", that's what they called the "peyott" - the ear-locks that every Yemenite boy had.
The Simanim, the sign of the Jew. For 2000 years they had the Simanim, for 2000 years they had the Shabbat, for 2000 years they suffered but remained Jewish, they came to the Holy Land to places as 'holy' as the Kibbutzim of the Shomer HaTzair. They ripped from them their Simanim, their Judaism, their Jewishness, children ages 7, 8 and 9.
Shimon Peres speaks today about the tragedy that there is crime in Israel. Crime in Israel? "Boker Tov" - good morning! If there is crime in Israel, who created it? If there are gangs in Israel, who created them? And if there is a breakdown in every thing that is Jewish in Israel, who created that? If not Shimon Peres and his gangsters!
They ripped from Jews the only values they had, their Judaism, and left them naked to pick up the values of Dizenghoff Street, and now they complain about hoodlums and gangsters. I sat in prison in Israel; I saw the Yemenites, the Iraqis, and the Moroccans, who never knew what crime was when they lived in Morocco and Yemen and Iraq. They never tasted it, they came to Israel and were destroyed spirituality by people who cynically cared only about "for whom will they vote?"
So when I say these things in the 'Kikar' - in the town square, of course the people listen and of course people clap, and of course people cheer because finally someone is coming and saying the truth, he is saying what they have always thought all these years. You think it's an accident that so many people are shouting 'Kahane'? It's not an accident. I touched upon the things that bother them, that trouble them, the things that no one else is saying to them. I want a Jewish State; I don't want a Hebrew speaking copy of Time Square!
I want to give those people, the Sephardic Jews that came to Israel with 'Kavod' - honor, self respect, the respect for the family, respect for their father, their mother, they came with respect and honor; and it was taken from them, and they were told, your father is a 'primitivi' - a primitive; and your mother is a 'primitivit' - she is primitive, she is backwards. Backwards? They who raised their children with honor and pride, to work and not to steal, they were primitive? It is the European,
the Hellenism, this Western Hellenized culture, which first destroyed the Jews of the West and now they use it to wipe out the Jews from Arab countries. That will not be. I don't want a Hellenist State, I want a Jewish State and that is why they hate me so.
I want to save the Jewish soul and the Jewish body, and I want to tell you that the Jewish body is in danger every day in Israel. If I mention the name Motty Swuissa I don't know if 10 people here know the name. But Motty Swissa just two weeks ago was murdered. He was murdered in Israel, not in Lebanon and not in the 'Occupied Territories' of Yossi Sarid. He was murdered near Beit Shemesh, 20 kilometers from Yerushalayim he and his fiancé were murdered in cold blood by Arabs. The same day another Jew was murdered in the north, in Migdal HaEmek. This is a pattern now; they are killing Jews in Israel every single week. Who cares? What is the answer? We came to Israel to die? We came to Israel to live. Today for the first time Jews in Israel are frightened, Jews are afraid in Israel. It's becoming Brooklyn.
A Jewish woman comes to me in Kiriyat Atta, a suburb of Haifa, and tells me "I'm afraid to let my child play in the streets." This is the dream of Zion? For this we waited 2000 years? Soldiers are afraid. Shaltiel Akiva, there aren't five people here who remember that name. A 21 year-old soldier from the Yemenite town of Rosh Ayin, who spent eight months in Lebanon without a scratch, he came back safely. The night he returned he was murdered. And the father told me the story after the funeral the next day; he said the previous evening his son Shaltiel, phoned and said, I'm at the 'trempiada' - the hitch-hikers' stop; five kilometers away from Rosh Ayin. For those that don't know, Rosh Ayin is near Petach Tikvah in the heart of Israel. "I am five kilometers away from home please prepare supper for me" so they prepared supper for him and they waited 15 minutes and half-an-hour, and an hour, they waited all night and he never arrived. The next day they brought his body. Shaltiel had been murdered by Arabs inside the State of Israel hitching a ride!
Moshe Tamam, that name virtually nobody remembers; was a 19 year-old soldier hitching a ride near Natanya. Arabs picked him up and gave him a ride. They found his body four days later. And know what they did to him so you know whom we are dealing with. They gouged out his eyes, and they cut off his sexual organs; and that is what we are dealing with. And of such people our Rabbis told us already and the Humash, told us already, "Ishmael will be a wild man, his hand will be against everybody and everybody's hand will be against him." That's with whom we're dealing! This is the enemy. This is Ishmael.
My son came home from the army, he came from Miluim - reserve duty;
and he showed me a letter, which was given to every soldier; a letter from the Israeli Defense Forces. "Let me see the letter, let me see pride I told him." Do you know what the letter said? It said, "Hayal - soldier, be careful when hitching rides". Soldier of Israel be careful on the roads of Israel, you might be killed by Arabs in Israel! What a tragedy, what a disgrace, what a Hilul HaShem! (desecration of God's name). But the enemy is Kahanism? (sic).
All of this doesn't bother the enemies of Kahanism, but it bothers me. That Jews who came after 2000 years in the exile, are assimilating inside Israel. When you visit Israel you are tourists, you don't see anything. You see the Wall, you see Masada, and the Plaza Hotel; you don't see the tragedy that occurs not far from the Plaza and on every town and every city. The Arabs that come into the towns, to meet Jewish girls. In the morning the Arab wakes up in his village and he is Ibrahim, he comes to Jerusalem or Natanya and suddenly his name is Avi, "hello, my name is Avi." There are over 3500 Jewish women married to Arabs and over 10,000 Jewish women living with Arabs in Israel. In Beit Shemesh I'll never forget the Jew that came over to me, a man in his 50's and said to me, "Rav Kahane," he said, "I have two daughters and they are both married to Arabs. One lives in the Arab village of Taiba." and then he said, "When I lived in Morocco did I ever dream in my blackest nightmare, that my daughter would ever go out with an Arab? In Morocco? Never heard of such a thing! We came to the Holy Land and my daughters married Arabs!" That doesn't bother anybody?
The President of Israel "hometz ben yain" - vinegar the son of wine, the son of the chief Rabbi, this Helenist goes to visit Nevey Shalom, a settlement founded by a Jew who converted to Christianity and is now a monk; a settlement where Jews and Arabs live together, and he says "ze keren or" - this is a ray of light. This is our President? this is our president!
On the beaches of Israel in the summer time, you see cars parked most with license plates from Shechem, Jenin, Tulkarm, Hevron, Aza, what are they looking for? sun and water? There is sun and water in Aza too. They are looking for Jewish women! The prostitutes in Israel are all Jewish, the pimps are mostly Arabs and we, we bare the shame, because this is not new, this has been going on for 30 years. When did you last hear, the religious parties in Israel, let alone the other parties, speak up about this? The irony, it would laughable, it would be a joke out of Chelm if it weren't so tragic. The religious head of the Druze, Sheik Taari, appealed to the chief Rabbi of Haifa to come out and oppose intermarriage of Druze men with Jewish women. So when you saw in the paper that the chief Rabbi of Haifa came out... no! After 20 years he came out because the Druze asked him too.
In Haifa they have, a center called Beit HaGefen. It is funded by the city of Haifa with public funds. It is a center for assimilation, intermarriage and the destruction of Jewish values. Jewish women and Arab men, and it is always Jewish women because an Arab woman is not allowed to go out of her village, let alone to go out with a Jew. The Arab goes into Haifa and there's no problem, he isn't afraid; but let an Israeli Jew go into an Arab village any evening to look for an Arab woman, they'll slice him into little pieces. Who speaks of these things? Who talks of this? This tragedy taking place today in Israel?
And above all, the tragedy of the gradual and not so gradual birth rate of the Arabs in Israel. Because we are such foolish people and unwise, we pay them for each baby, each month a check from 'bituach leumi' - National Insurance. For one baby, one check, two babies, two checks; ten babies? Here, take a book of checks! Every month! You want a tourist site? I'll give you a tourist site no tour guide would ever take you to: On the twentieth of every month go to the main post office, in every major city and watch the hundreds of Arabs in line waiting to cash their checks. And count how many checks each one of them has. 10 checks, 15 checks, 18 checks, why not? The Galilee today has a majority of Arabs. Today! Not in twenty years, but today!
Jews are afraid at night to drive through Arab villages in the Galilee, so they are building access roads to go around so God forbid we shouldn't have to drive through them. Entire cities in Israel are becoming Arab. Jaffa is becoming Arab, Ramle is becoming Arab, Lod, Nazareth Ilit built by the Israeli government to meet the Arab Nazareth is today 25% Arab.
Why? Arabs come with dollars, in cash and they offer twice the price for the apartment. And where does this money come from? It is PLO money and comes across Jordan. And it comes across freely and the government knows about it. They are quiet about it and they say, "It doesn't hurt anyone, the important thing is they are quiet, and after all it's a Democracy" (sic). They are buying Jewish land and we are committing suicide. But I am not ready to commit suicide in the name of Democracy. For 40 years we have been 'frayerim' - fools, but I am not a fool, I will not sit quietly.
I don't hate Arabs, I love Jews! And I hate the enemies of the Jews, not because they are Arabs but because they are enemies! You think there is a single Arab living in Israel in a place that is called the Jewish State? Liberals have immense contempt for the Arabs; they believe that they can buy them. "We'll raise their living standards and then they'll be good Arabs" Good Arabs? What contempt! They think that a good Arab is one that will agree to the Jews living in what he considers to be his Palestine. You think there is one Arab who enjoys living in a State where there is a law of return that applies to Jews and not to non-Jews? You think there is one Arab who enjoys living in a State, which has a National Anthem: Hatikvah with words that say, 'nefesh yehudi omia' - the soul of the Jew yearns? You can imagine how that sits with them. You think there is one Arab who enjoys living in a State, whose Independence Day celebrates his defeat? You can't buy a person by giving him an indoor toilet. "You see, you had no toilet, now you have one." You can't come and say as the UJA says: "What do you want? We came and we turned the dessert into a garden" Let me tell you what the Arab says: "Yes it's true, but it was my dessert and now it's your garden." I respect the Arab, and that is why he has to go!
Because I know you can't buy him, you can't buy his national pride, know that he hates the Jews and that if we allowed them they would do to us what Arabs do to other Arabs today in Lebanon. They would do to us what they did to us yesterday. Do you know what Arabs did to us in the 1920's and 1930's? Do you know what they did to us? When there was no Kahane, no Begin and no other 'fascists'?
Do you know what they did to us when there was no State of Israel? What they did in Hevron and in Jaffa, and Yerushalaym? How they murdered over 500 Jews! They would do that to us if we let them, but I am not going to let them!
I want an exchange of populations. Beginning in 1948 we took in 800,000 Jews from Arab countries. That was phase one, now I want phase two: we took Jews from Arab countries? Well now we'll give them Arabs from the Jewish country!
I am ready to offer the Arabs that want to leave voluntarily compensation for his properties, which is more that what they did for the Jews they expelled from Morocco, from Egypt, from Iraq. Do you know how much money was left behind by Jews in those countries? Billions of dollars, and we were never compensated for it. And when we signed the treaty with Egypt we didn't even have the decency, the self-respect to demand compensation for the properties seized by Gamal Abdel Nasser from the Jews in Egypt. I am better than they; I will give compensation to the Arabs that are willing to leave. And those that are not willing to leave, I will throw out without monetary compensation!
This is racism? My God, this is saving ourselves, this is self-preservation, I don't hate the Arabs, I wish them well, elsewhere! I wish them the very best in any of their 22 countries. I have only one, it is mine and I am not going to lose it to either Bush or Begin.
We can't continue in this way. We can not continue as the country rapidly becomes more Arab, not in 40 years, not in 30, in 10 the Arabs will help the leftists be a majority in the Knesset, a coalition of Yossi Sarid, Shimon Peres, Mr. Shemtov and the Arabs, that will be the coalition if we don't do anything about this.
I am appalled by Jews who say, "This is what the Germans did to the Jews." Did the Jews of Germany ever say, "Germany is our country and the Germans stole it from us? And when we become the majority we will take it back and call it Israel" (sic). That is not what they said. The Jews of Germany wanted nothing more than to be the best Germans that ever lived. The Arabs don't want to be Israelis.
Let everyone know that when we came out to oppose the Camp David Accords and peace treaty with Egypt, they said "Kahane doesn't want peace", I want peace, but I knew what kind of peace we would have with Egypt. Peace? Any country with a modicum of self-respect would have recalled their ambassador from Egypt, if Egypt would have done to them what they did to us: murdered in cold blood seven Jews. I don't know if any of you know what the real story is, I am sure that it came here to you as one crazy Arab shoots... and every time an Arab shoots he's crazy.
So the story came as 'one crazy Arab soldier shot Jews and also wounded his own soldiers', well that's a lie! another Egyptian lie; a typical Arab lie. He wasn't crazy, he was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and other soldiers stood by and watched him shoot, and three of our seven soldiers did not die right away, they laid there bleeding, and the Egyptians refused to allow medical aid. And those three soldiers bled to death. And Mubarak said, "Why should a little incident upset our relationship?" A little incident? If I would have been Prime Minister I would have given him a little incident!
I am tired. I'm tired of going to funerals, I didn't come to Israel to go to funerals; I came to Israel for 'smachot' - happy occasions, joy, and happiness. There is a growing fear in Israel and you can tell by the hysteria, the hysterical obsession with Kahanism. President Herzog is obsessed with Kahane, he goes to bed every night with 'Kahane'. Shimon Peres says Kahane is the greatest danger to Israel, I would have imagined that Syria would be, but no. The army radio station Galey Tzahal, devoted last week 18 hours, an entire day to Kahane, to attacks on Kahane; the army radio station! An army that is supposed to be above politics, being crudely used by politicians and do you know why? Because they are terrified, because they know that as much as they are against Kahane, in the streets, the people of Israel are for Kahane!
It's not an accident that the Sephardic Jews in Israel are for Kahane, why? Because they did not learn about Arabs in a seminar at Hebrew University, they learned about Arabs because they lived under Arabs. So naturally when Kahane says what he says, they say "kol hakavod" - with all the honor, (meaning -you're absolutely right), because I say what they think. And the young people they are with us and that's what terrifies the Labor and the Likud. Yes the Likud. Pains me more than anything to have to tell you that the Likud has joined actively with the leftists in physically breaking up rallies of the Kach movement. It's not to be believed, people who once had this thing done to them, and I remember how Menahem Begin in 1952 was prevented from speaking to the people in Afula. His rallies were broken up by leftist hoodlums, and now they do the same? Do you know why? They are afraid of losing votes. They know that the people say that the Likud of today is not the Likud of yesterday. The Likud of Begin is not what it once was.
And we have to stop being idol worshipers. We do not worship idols. The Likud should be backed if it does for the people, if it doesn't we don't back it. With God's help in the next elections the latest poll in Israel shows 12 seats for us in the Knesset.
And I tell you that is not true, not true! For everyone who is openly and willing to admit that he will vote Kach, there is another one who will do so quietly. I am not interested in Seats, I'm going for the whole ballgame!
I want a government of Kahane, Ariel Sharon and Raful and then you will see what we will do. Finally for those who ask: "how can you do it? How can you throw a million and a half Arabs?" I'll tell you how. Three years ago I served in the army, I was stationed near Ramallah, in Samaria, the West Bank. And the Arabs rioted in Ramallah so they sent me to put down the riots. I want to tell you, not more than five minutes passed, and the whole town heard "Kahane is here!" there was absolute silence in that town, the riots stopped. It is imperative you understand what the name Kahane means to the Arabs. For them it is a monster, it is terror, they hear Kahane and they are terrified! And that is good because that is the only language they understand.
So how will we move out the Arabs? Think for a moment. Three years from now the Arab wakes up in the morning, turns on the radio and hears in the news that Kahane is the new Prime Minister of the State of Israel. Can you imagine what he will feel? How will I move them out? There will be no need. Half will leave by themselves, the other half, will beg me, "let us go" and because I'm big about it, I'll let them go.
My friends, Israel is at a crossroads right now. The All-Mighty gave us with His kindness, His Hessed - mercy, He gave us a Jewish State after 2000 years, but He is not going to give us a Jewish State without us working and suffering; if we're not going to make the kind of State that He wants. I want Democracy for Jews but I don't want Democracy for Arabs because otherwise there won't be a Jewish State! And for those people that say "that is not nice" you answer this question: If you are such Democrats,
are you willing to allow the Arabs, peacefully, quietly, democratically to sit every night and make love not war and allow them to be the majority, quietly and peacefully? You would be shocked and amazed to know how many Jews in Israel would answer 'yes' in Israel. We have to create in Israel a Jewish State not a State for Jews, I am sick and tired to hear the 'sabras' - (Jews born in Israel) come and say to me "I am not a Jew, I am an Israeli", I don't want to hear that again ever! I want a Jewish State and I want the public schools of Israel to teach Judaism, I want Jewish youngsters to know what is tefillin and what is a holyday, maybe they won't want to keep it but at the very least, give them the choice of knowing what it is being and not being Jewish.
On Wednesday I presented a motion of 'no confidence' in the Knesset because of the policy of the Ministry of Education. And enforced curriculum of meetings between Arab students and Jewish students. Mixed summer camps, Jewish children staying in Arab villages for the weekend and Arab children in Jewish towns for the weekend. I presented a vote of 'no confidence' to the other Ministers and asked them, will you vote for a Jewish education and a Jewish State or will you vote for the coalition and for your seats and the money? You know how they voted... they voted for the coalition. That is the tragedy. I can understand a secular and leftist party but I cannot understand a religious party sitting by and watching our youngsters being destroyed, for whatever narrow reasons they may have.
There will be an election and when Peres returns from his Washington trip he will be on a coalition course with the Likud. Peres is ready to make far reaching concessions to Jordan. When he praised King Hussein as a man who wants peace, one can only recall when we liberated the Old City and found out what they had done to every synagogue. They destroyed every synagogue. And what they had done in Har HaZeitim - Mount of Olives, to the tombstones; they used them to pave roads and as latrine seats. He wants peace... he wants many, many pieces of Israel.
The government is going to fall. Shimon Peres has worked hard this past year, he's got the strength and the Likud has fallen badly, there is going to be an election and they will try to stop us from running, with God's help that won't be because we have many answers to their intentions, we will be running.
And I want to finish here by saying I am overjoyed to see this crowd and the crowd outside. I don't want you to come here, because you want to hear me speak, or to cheer me, I don't need your applause.
We need your money, we are running for an election, it costs a fortune, they get money from the treasury, for each member of the Knesset they get three thousand dollars a month, do you know what that means? That's one of the laws we are going to change, robbing the treasury! They get over $120,000 dollars a month, we get three thousands dollars a month. We need the money, and for what will you be saving your money if tragedy strikes God forbid? I'm not trying to make an appeal here, but when this is over, write out a check, give me a check, and I can only tell you that if you give to a Yeshiva in Israel, or schools, or institutions in Israel, know that what I'm trying to do is to save Israel, with all the schools and all the institutions. And if I fail there might not be any institutions for you to support.
Just as I told the people in Israel the choice in the next elections is between Kahane and Arafat; that is what the next elections will be all about. Kach or the PLO that's the choice there is no other choice! I appeal to you, save Israel, save your brothers and sisters and save yourselves, because God forbid, I would not want to be in your shoes if there is no more Israel. I said I would end here but there is one more thing I want to tell you because it is vital. I believe that the State of Israel has to be the State for all the Jewish people and has to be the trustee of all the Jewish people. And I don't believe that there are boundaries that Israel cannot cross, when Jews are in trouble. And I want to tell you, that as anti-Semitism in this country (USA) grows, there will be a need for an Israel that will do things that you are not ready to do. And I want to tell you, that with God's help when I am Prime Minister, the State of Israel will never say that there are Israelis that are in trouble, we will always say that if there are Jews in trouble anywhere, our hand will reach out everywhere against those who hate Jews.
I will take your questions now.
With Love of Israel Rabbi Meir Kahane


Of blessed memory, may HaShem avenge his blood
Speech given in front of an American audience at the National Press Conference a short while after receiving one seat in the Israeli Knesset (Parliament) in 1984.

Rav Kahane was murdered November 1st, 1999 by an Arab informant who infiltrated a group not too well know at that time: Al-Quaida. Nossair Sayed received orders to kill the Rabbi while he was in New York.  
Rabbi Kahane's prediction that the following elections would be between Kahane or Arafat became true, thus Oslo was born and the subsequent deaths of thousands of innocent Jews.

 

Do you have any doubt whatsoever that Kahane was right?

===

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land called America, having lost their morals , their initiative , and their Will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that Person known as "The One."

He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He Hypnotized the people telling them , "I am sent to save you."

My lack of experience , my questionable ethics , my monstrous ego , and my Association with evil doers are of no consequence. I shall save you with Hope and Change. Go , therefore , and proclaim throughout the Land that he who preceded me is evil , that he has defiled the nation , and that all he has built must be destroyed.

And the people rejoiced , For even though they knew not what "The One" would do , he had promised that it was good; and they believed.

And "The One" said " We live in The greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!"

And the people said , "Hallelujah! Change is good!"

Then He said , "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats."

And the People said "Sock it to them!"

"And redistribute their wealth."

And the people said , "Show us the money!"

And the he said , "Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody.."

And Joe the plumber asked , "Are you kidding me? You're going to Steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??"

And "The One" ridiculed and taunted him , and Joe's personal records were hacked and publicized.

One lone reporter asked , "Isn't that Marxist policy?" And she was banished from the kingdom.

Then a citizen asked , "With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge , how will you deal with Radical terrorists?"

And "The One" said , "Simple. I shall sit with them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!"

And the people said , "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last , and we can beat our weapons Into free cars for the people!"

Then "The One" said "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes."

And one , Lone voice said , "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes.

"So "The One" Said , "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats
pay!"

And the people said , "Hallelujah! Show us the money!"

Then "The One" said , "I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!"

And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed.

And He said. "I shall mandate employer-funded health care for every worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every Person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the Clinics."

...Oh, except for Muslims for Muslims shall not pay their share of healthcare.

And the people said , "Give me some of that!"

Then he said , "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas."

And the people said , "Where's my rebate check?"

Then "The One" said , "I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!"

And the people said , "Coal is dirty , coal is evil , no more coal! But we don't care for that part about higher electric rates.

So "The One" said , Not to worry. If Your rebate isn't enough to cover your expenses , we shall bail you out.

Just sign up with the ACORN and you troubles are over!"

Then He said , "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's grant them amnesty , Social Security , free education , free lunches , Free medical care , bilingual signs and guaranteed housing...

" And the people said , "Hallelujah!" and they made him king!

And so it came to pass that employers , facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes , raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff.

The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl and more of the people were without a means of support.

Then "The One" said , "I am the "the One"- The Messiah and I'm here To save you!

We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!"

But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. "Wait a Minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more...

And "The One" said , "Wait a minute. That is unfair!!"

And the world said , "Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced.

Lo , you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!"

And the people cried out , "Alas , alas!! What have we done?"

And the change agent's name was changed to dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope.

And the Change "The One" had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish , "Give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!" But it was too late , and their homeland was no more.

Morning and Evening by Charles Spurgeon

Morning

"The people that do know their God shall be strong."
Daniel 11:32
Every believer understands that to know God is the highest and best form of knowledge; and this spiritual knowledge is a source of strength to the Christian. It strengthens his faith. Believers are constantly spoken of in the Scriptures as being persons who are enlightened and taught of the Lord; they are said to "have an unction from the Holy One," and it is the Spirit's peculiar office to lead them into all truth, and all this for the increase and the fostering of their faith. Knowledge strengthens love, as well as faith. Knowledge opens the door, and then through that door we see our Saviour. Or, to use another similitude, knowledge paints the portrait of Jesus, and when we see that portrait then we love him, we cannot love a Christ whom we do not know, at least, in some degree. If we know but little of the excellences of Jesus, what he has done for us, and what he is doing now, we cannot love him much; but the more we know him, the more we shall love him. Knowledge also strengthens hope. How can we hope for a thing if we do not know of its existence? Hope may be the telescope, but till we receive instruction, our ignorance stands in the front of the glass, and we can see nothing whatever; knowledge removes the interposing object, and when we look through the bright optic glass we discern the glory to be revealed, and anticipate it with joyous confidence. Knowledge supplies us reasons for patience. How shall we have patience unless we know something of the sympathy of Christ, and understand the good which is to come out of the correction which our heavenly Father sends us? Nor is there one single grace of the Christian which, under God, will not be fostered and brought to perfection by holy knowledge. How important, then, is it that we should grow not only in grace, but in the "knowledge" of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Evening

"I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labours of your hands."
Haggai 2:17
How destructive is the hail to the standing crops, beating out the precious grain upon the ground! How grateful ought we to be when the corn is spared so terrible a ruin! Let us offer unto the Lord thanksgiving. Even more to be dreaded are those mysterious destroyers--smut, bunt, rust, and mildew. These turn the ear into a mass of soot, or render it putrid, or dry up the grain, and all in a manner so beyond all human control that the farmer is compelled to cry, "This is the finger of God." Innumerable minute fungi cause the mischief, and were it not for the goodness of God, the rider on the black horse would soon scatter famine over the land. Infinite mercy spares the food of men, but in view of the active agents which are ready to destroy the harvest, right wisely are we taught to pray, "Give us this day our daily bread." The curse is abroad; we have constant need of the blessing. When blight and mildew come they are chastisements from heaven, and men must learn to bear the rod, and him that hath appointed it.
Spiritually, mildew is no uncommon evil. When our work is most promising this blight appears. We hoped for many conversions, and lo! a general apathy, an abounding worldliness, or a cruel hardness of heart! There may be no open sin in those for whom we are labouring, but there is a deficiency of sincerity and decision sadly disappointing our desires. We learn from this our dependence upon the Lord, and the need of prayer that no blight may fall upon our work. Spiritual pride or sloth will soon bring upon us the dreadful evil, and only the Lord of the harvest can remove it. Mildew may even attack our own hearts, and shrivel our prayers and religious exercises. May it please the great Husbandman to avert so serious a calamity. Shine, blessed Sun of Righteousness, and drive the blights away.

Today's reading: Psalm 66-67, Romans 7 (NIV)

View today's reading on Bible Gateway

Today's Old Testament reading: Psalm 66-67

For the director of music. A song. A psalm. 

1
 Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
2 Sing the glory of his name;
make his praise glorious.
3 Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds!
So great is your power
that your enemies cringe before you.
4 All the earth bows down to you;
they sing praise to you,
they sing the praises of your name."

Today's New Testament reading: Romans 7

Released From the Law, Bound to Christ
1 Do you not know, brothers and sisters-for I am speaking to those who know the law-that the law has authority over someone only as long as that person lives? 2 For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law that binds her to him. 3 So then, if she has sexual relations with another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress if she marries another man.
4 So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God. 5 For when we were in the realm of the flesh, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in us, so that we bore fruit for death. 6 But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code....

Uriah, Urijah, Urias

[Ūrī'ah,U rī'jah, U rī'as] - jehovah is light.
  1. A high priest in Jerusalem, who built an altar according to the pattern provided by King Ahaz (2 Kings 16:10-16).
  2. A priest, father of Meremoth, who helped rebuild the wall of Jerusalem (Ezra 8:33; Neh. 3:4, 21).
  3. A priest who stood with Ezra as he read the law and addressed the people (Neh. 8:4).
  4. A priest whom Isaiah deemed worthy to act as a witness. He is described as "a faithful witness" (Isa. 8:2). See Revelation 1:4; 2:13.
  5. A prophet, the son of Shemaiah of Kirjath-jearim, whom Jehoiakin sent for into Egypt and slew him (Jer. 26:20-23).
  6. Uriah, or Urias (Matt. 1:6) was also the name of the Hittite, husband of Bath-sheba, and one of David's thirty heroes ( 2 Sam. 11; 12:9-15; 23:39; 1 Kings 15:5; 1 Chron. 11:41).
As David's general, Uriah distinguished himself by his loyalty and bravery in the army of the king. Alas, Uriah was barbarously, even murderously treated by the monarch he served! Failing to use Uriah as a shield for his sin against Uriah and Bath-sheba his wife, David had him killed in battle.
Thomas Goodwin points out that it was the "matter of Uriah," even more than the matter of Bath-sheba, that awakened the anger of the Lord against David. That is to say, it was David's sin of deliberation and determination, rather than his sin of sudden and intoxicating passion. But both sins matter and earn the judgment of God. Uriah had every right to disobey David in his deceitful commands. Through Nathan, the adulterer and murderer was brought back to God and wrote his confession in a penitential psalm (Ps. 51).

Nothing but a Number

Japanese mountain climber Yuichiro Miura reached the summit of Mount Everest at age 70. George Brunstad was also 70 when he swam the English Channel. Naval officer Grace Hopper became the first female rear admiral of the United States Navy when she was 79. Margaret Haggerty completed her quest to run a marathon on each of the seven continents when she was 84.
If stories like these teach us anything, it's that senior adults are capable of amazing things.
That was certainly true of Joshua. Even though he was probably nearing the century mark, God had a plan for him. Age didn't matter to God. Rather than telling Joshua to rest, retire or step aside for a younger replacement, God instructed him to get to work.
Perhaps we should take a cue from God in our attitude toward older adults. From an early age most of us were taught to respect our elders. However, too often we confuse politeness for respect. What's the difference? Politeness might include offering a hand to senior adults when they struggle with steps or making awkward small talk with aging relatives at family gatherings. Respect, however, would include realizing that with their years of challenges and experiences these adults are a rich, God-given resource.
In this age of politically correct labels, perhaps a better name for senior citizens is "ultra-experienced adults." God entrusted Joshua with an important duty a quarter century after Joshua reached retirement age because of his vast military experience and knowledge.
Think of the older adults you know. How does God want to use them in your life? What experiences of theirs might benefit you? What life lessons have they learned that might keep you from making a bad decision? And what might you be able to learn from hearing their stories and asking for their advice?

To Take Away

  • How would you describe your attitude toward senior adults?
  • Think of two or three seniors you know. What might getting to know them better add to your life?
  • What steps can you take this week to build a mutually beneficial relationship with an older adult?

Party On!
Today's Truth
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over (Psalm 23:5, NKJV).
Friend To Friend
Many life battles are lost because our confidence and faith in God are eroded under the persistent battering of daily stressful situations. We often fail to recognize and embrace the truth that God defines and refines us through each battle in life. If the battle truly belongs to God, we win! We win before the first shot is fired. We win before one step of the battle plan is taken.
I would naturally assume that a victory banquet would be heldafter the victory was won. However, the Hebrew people blew that idea right out of the water when they held victory banquets before the battle even began. If I had been there, I would have surmised that the Hebrews were either ridiculously arrogant or people of great faith. The truth is that there was an anointing on their lives, a sign of being chosen by God. And because they were a chosen people, their faith grew strong and freed them to stand on the undeniable truth that they could count on their God. Celebrating the battle's outcome was simply a matter of celebrating God, acknowledging His power on their lives, and walking by faith in the victory provided before the battle was even fought.
We, too, are a chosen people, created by the hand of God. We can sit down at the table of victory every moment of every day because no matter what happens, if God is for us - we win! The battle really is for our good.
I believe our faith is measured by how we handle each battle that comes our way. It may be a skirmish to carry out God's holy vision, a war against those who seek to undermine God's calling, or the age-old conflict of good versus evil. The battlefield is not nearly as important as our choice to align ourselves with God's plan and step out in faith of the battle already won - which brings us to the powerful stress-buster of praise.
My friend, Michelle, is the consummate hostess. She makes entertaining look so easy. To her, a dinner party for 50 guests is a simple feat. Just shoot me now! One of her favorite preparations is the dinner table. When I'm expecting company, the first guests to arrive often have the honor of setting the table with whatever they can find in the way of tablecloths, silverware, glasses, and...you get the idea. Not Michelle. I've seen her table completely and beautifully arranged days before the anticipated dinner party or holiday meal. When I asked her why she went to such elaborate lengths her answer made me stop and think: "It is part of the celebration for me. I love having the table set early because every time I walk past it, I think of the people who will sit in those chairs and pray for them. I think of their favorite dishes and look forward to preparing each one. I guess you could say that I enjoy the party long before it begins." That is the idea behind praise.
We can praise God for what He will do long before He does it. We can prepare a victory table before the battle begins, knowing that the battle belongs to our God. And don't you know that a pre-battle victory party irritates the fire out of the enemy? I love that!
It is said that in Africa a tree produces the "taste berry," a unique fruit that literally alters taste buds so that everything that's eaten after eating the berry tastes good and sweet. Praise is the "taste berry" of the Christian's life. When our hearts are filled with praise, when we choose to praise God, no matter what, stress fades into the background of a battle won before it begins, life is sweet, and all is good. Party on, girlfriend!
Let's Pray
Father, I come to You today, praising You for Your presence in my life. Right now, I celebrate the victory You have already won in every battle I am facing. I choose against my human fear and tendency to demand proof of Your presence in my life and Your power at work. I am stepping out in faith and praising You for who You are.
In Jesus' name,
Amen.
Now It's Your Turn
What battle are you facing in your life today? Set aside time to spend with God, praising Him for the victory He promises. Share that promised victory with at least one girlfriend today. Don't wait until you feel like it. Step out in faith and praise Him!
Read Psalm 100:4-5 (NLT). "Enter His gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name. For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation."
Now write those verses in your own words and make them your own prayer of praise to your God. (For example: "I will enter Your gates with thanksgiving, Lord. I will go into Your courts with praise...")

The Moment
Lysa TerKeurst
"And now I will show you the most excellent way. If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging symbol."1 Corinthians 12:31b-13:1 (NIV)
So familiar can some of our relationships be, we forget. We rush. We assume. We feel like we have forever.
And feeling like we have forever cheapens the right now feelings.
Each morning I have a routine with my man. It's simple. Nothing profound. Nothing for which we'd ever stop and snap a picture.
It's just a moment.
He asks me to help him pick a tie. He then goes away to fuss with this fixture of his professional job. Soon, he returns with a flipped up collar and a pressed down, knotted tie. He needs gentle hands to fold the collar over. No, he doesn't need. He wants gentle hands to fold the collar over.
And I do.
It's just a moment.
But it's a moment we follow the excellent way mentioned in the verses above. And in the intersection of this moment we're establishing once again, "I love you. I love you too."
Now, please don't get an overly idyllic picture in your head of our marriage. Heavens, no. We have plenty of those "growth opportunity" moments too.
But this moment with the tie, it's like a spot of glue ever tightening the bond between us day by day. It's so simple and yet something I would miss with the deepest ache imaginable if today was the last of the moments.
If today.
Tears slip as I think about this. Dear God, help me think about this. Let me snap a hundred of these moments with the lens of my heart to be stored and appreciated and thought of as the great treasure they are.
Let my mind park there.
Let my heart relish there.
Let my mouth dare to whisper what a joy this is. "I love you. I love us. I love this moment each day."
No, our relationship isn't perfect. No relationship is perfect. We're two very strong willed people with vastly different approaches to life. And oh how easy it would be to list out all the differences. He likes the towel hanging in the same spot. I am more creative. But I stop the list here.
I stop because great love isn't two people finding the perfect match in one another.
Great love is two people making the choice to be a match.
A decision.
To fold his collar and snap the heart lens and find myself grateful to the point of tears.
Tears of relishing today are so much better than tears of what was missed.
It's just a moment.
Or is it?
Dear Lord, help me to appreciate each moment given to me. I want to park my mind on my daily moments I so often take for granted. Thank you for this joy so simple but so sweet. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
