The New Ghetto

Watch this video and you'll understand the predicament of Israel and the people of Sderot.

There is an old expression that says that it is easier to take the Jews out of Egypt than to take Egypt out of the Jews. Similarly, the late great Rabbi Kahane HY"D said: "The Jew left Pinsk and Minsk and he returned to Minsk and to Pinsk." Even though the Jewish people left the shtetl a century or so ago, our leaders continue to act like ghetto-Jews and refuse to stand up for Jewish rights. In an age where the Jewish people possess one of the greatest armies in the modern world, it is still deemed "un-Jewish" in many quarters so fight back.

Living as a stranger in Christian Europe or under Muslim rule, the Jews were subjected to harsh and debasing circumstances. Starting in Venice in 1516 and spreading throughout Europe, the Jews were forced into cramped and confined living quarters, known as ghettos. Jews were extremely restricted in their choice of profession and often become money lenders, as immortalized in Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. They could not leave the ghetto at night and whenever they did leave, the Jews had to wear special clothes to in order to identify themselves. In Afghanistan, Yemen or Algeria, for example, Jews had to walk barefoot, were segregated, wore distinctive clothing and lived in constant fear of massacres, rape or abduction. The Pact of Umar, the document that spelled out clearly the requirement of dhimmitude the debasement of non-Muslims, forbade Jews to ride on horses, to carry weapons or to repair or build new synagogues, among other things. In this atmospere of humilation, Jews learnt to keep their heads down, to avoid trouble and to accept any discrimination or oppression as "the will of the Almighty". It is from here that the prevalent image of a weak Jew begging or prostrating himself before his gentile overlords arose. It was necessary for the exile-Jews not to argue or protest, to keep his head or prevent a horde of Cossacs from burning down his village. This mode of existence was essential for the time period as the Jews had little choice in the matter of their rights.

Today, the Jews for the most part have left the exile and yet the exile has not left the Jews. We continue to worry about asserting our selves in fear of "what the goyyim will say". We don't realize that G-d has reinstated us as a free nation in our own land and has blessed us with a booming economy, material wealth and a mighty army. There are more people today living in Jerusalem than there ever were, even in the time of king David and Solomon! Our leaders, the PM of Israel, Ehud Olmert and his corrupt cronies, insist on surrendering Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria and expelling tens of thousands of Jews to appease the United States and the murderous Arabs. There is no cost too great for "peace now". Peace at any price! Peace immediately! When a terrorist blows himself up on a Jerusalem bus or in a Tel-Aviv cafe, instead of destroying the terrorist infrastructue, Israel's government decides to put Israel behind a fence, as if a fence can stop missiles. Where we once fought with all of our might to be able to leave the ghetto, our leaders are now walking back into one of their own making. This bunker mentality pervades all aspects of Israeli life. Every Israeli is frisked tens of times each day by security guards whenever he walks into a mall, a store or any public building. When rockets fall on Sderot and entire families are forced to live in shelters, Olmert remains silent and explains that nothing can be done. He suggests building more shelters. Peres dismisses the hundreds of rockets as "kassam shamssams". Maybe we should rebuild the city underground? Who needs Sderot anyways- we parted with Gaza? If we release terrorist, the Arabs will stop killing us. If we give them weapons, the rockets and attacks will stop. If we surrender Jewish land, there will be peace. The Jew can never stand up for his own rights and everytime he does, the world condemns him for "responding disproportionately". The US or Europe, in fact any sane nation, would not tolerate such repeated attacks on its sovereingty and its citizens and yet they have no qualms about demanding the impossible from the Jews.

Enough is enough! The ghetto is dead and we will never return willingly to it again. It is time to act like a rational, proud and strong people living in our own land. The Judaism of the exile is dead. "There is no Torah like the Torah of Eretz Yisrael and there is no wisdom like the wisdom of Eretz Yisrael" (Bereishit Rabba 16:4). The Torah of the exile was necessary in its own time but today, we need not fear refusing the goyyim. Jewish self-defense and strength is not a contradiction, it not an "un-Jewish" concept but rather mandated by our Sages. We learn in Tanchuma, Shoftim 15: "When you go forth to battle against your enemies" (Deut. 20:1)... What is meant by "against your enemies"? G-d said, "Confront them as enemies. Just as they show you no mercy, so should you not show them mercy." I do not want the Judaism of the galut, of the ghetto, of the bent-backed Jew pleading for his life. I do not want weakness, surrender, compromise, retreat. I want, no, I demand the Judaism of Samson, who prayed: "Lord GOD, remember me... O God, that I may be this once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes." (Judges 16:28). I want the Judaism of king David who asked: "who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should have taunted the armies of the living God?" (Samuel I 17:26). I want the Judaism of Moses our Teacher who said: "Arm ye men from among you for the war, that they may go against Midian, to execute the LORD'S vengeance on Midian." (Numbers 31:3)

Israel, fight against your enemies and show them no mercy! "The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance; he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. And men shall say: 'Verily there is a reward for the righteous; verily there is a God that judgeth in the earth." (Psalm 58:11-12)

"Pour forth Your wrath upon the nations that do not recognize You and upon the kingdoms that do not invoke Your name. For they have devoured Jacob and destroyed his habitation. Pour forth Your fury upon them and let Your burning wrath overtake them. Pursue them with anger and destroy them from beneath the heavens of the L-rd."

Discredit all the dhimmi appeaser politicians in dar al-Harb by shining the light of truth on THE BIG LIE.

THE BIG LIE of our times is to deny that Islam is an intrinsically violent, aggressive and murderous ideology.

Our lords and masters repeat their PC denial of this blindingly obvious fact in various forms ('Religion of Peace', or 'tiny minority of extremists'etc), in the belief that like some sort of magical spell, it will become true if recited often enough.

Supporting strands of this web of deceit include claims that Islamic aggression is a recent reaction to the sins of the West (colonialism ), or is caused by poverty (buy them off with more jizya), or is carried out by a tiny minority who misunderstand the peaceful commandments of the Koran, or, in a whopper that would be worthy of Goebbels himself - that Islamic terrorism is actually anti-Islamic, as preached by the hypocrite Jacqui Smith.

Another strand of deceit is the never-ending search for the Holy Grail - the Mythical Moderate Islam which is claimed to be the real authentic version of the Cult of Mohammed. Of course any 'moderate' version of Islam would have to repudiate the violent verses in the Koran, and so commit blasphemy by rejecting the Word of God.

But, as public awareness of Islam grows, these repeated denials and myths parrotted by politicians begin to look increasingly absurd.

Many of us now understand the implacably aggresive nature of Islam and its polarised worldview - the tribal antagonism between Ummah and Kuffar, the territorial antagonism between Dar al-Islam and Dar al-Harb, the overwhelming need to kill or humiliate non-Muslims, the death penalty for those who attempt to leave Islam and the obligation to totally exterminate the Jewish people.

But what else can the politicians say other than repeat the RoP mantra? The alternative would be to admit that on their watch they have allowed, and are continuing to allow, the invasion of millions of Dark-Age savages committed to a vicious totalitarian ideology which demands our death or subjugation.

So as regards telling the truth about Islam, they are damned if they do and damned if they don't! They have a choice of either staying in denial, and thus appearing to an increasingly Islamic-aware electorate to be gullible idiots and bare-faced liars, or else they must admit that they have been so incompetant as to allow a social disaster to take place that can have no outcome other than civil war.

Yes, we've got the traitors skewered! Damned if they do, and damned if they don't! We can discredit the dhimmi politicans by pointing out, whenever they spout their RoP bullshit, how the commands to murder, mutlilate and rape non-Muslims are an essential part of the cult, because the superstitious savages believe the Koran to be the word of God himself, and the rapist, murderer, bandit and pedophile Mohammed to be the 'Perfect Man', whose example is to be followed in all things, including gang-rape.

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!

But if we hack at the these main strands of deceit, then the whole PC web of lies will eventually unravel and the dhimmi politicians will be utterly discredited. Then maybe we can get effective governments which will work together to eliminate this menace once and for all, worldwide.

Every Muslim is BY DEFINITION committed to killing, subjugating and humiliating the Kuffars. The foundation of the Muslim cult is an unremitting and implacable hatred of non-Muslims. The world is divided into Dar al-Islam - the realm where Islam is supreme with Kuffars as subjugated dhimmis, and Dar al-Harb - the realm of war, those lands still controlled by the Kuffars.

Humiliation of Kuffars is a major objective for modern Muslims. Methods of humiliation range from rape, mutilation, castration and torture (Kris Donald), attacks on iconic cultural symbols (Bamiyan), distributing videos of Kuffars being beheaded after pleading for their lives, and feeding the flesh of dead Kuffars to other unsuspecting Infidels (Charlene Downes).

And the humilation will increase. Islam is an honor/shame culture, and Muslims feel themselves to have been shamed by the Kuffar.

Muslims have a huge number of real and imagined grievances, all of which will be avenged many times over when their day of victory comes.

They resent the political power of the Kuffar. They are insulted and humiliated by cartoons of their Pedophile and by Salman Rushdie's knighthood. Muslims envy the cultural, scientific and technical superiority of the Kuffar. They especially resent the colonial period when Kuffars occupied Dar al-Islam and built railways, roads, aqueducts, colleges and hospitals in a vain attempt to bring the inhabitants out of the Stone Age. Most of all, they resent the very existence of the Kuffar as an insult to Islam, Allah and the Pedophile.

Muslims are seething with barely repressed anger and the burning desire to avenge a million real and imagined insults. When Muslims finally get the power to wreak their revenge on the Kuffar, the release of pent up fury will be truly Apocalyptic - an unbelievably violent eruption of rage, rape, mutilation, torture, mass-murder and genocide which will make Attila, Gengis Khan, Hitler, Stalin and Chairman Mao seem like amateurs.

In order to preserve the crumbling credibility of THE BIG LIE , the British government, and probably other dhimmi governments, are working on ways to gag, censor and and shutdown the counter-Jihadist blogosphere.

There is currently a discusion of how to prepare for these attacks on freedom of expression at and also at
