DRUZE MK TIES ITALIAN EARTHQUAKES TO JERUSALEM
 
Two earthquakes, which struck Italy this week, were "retribution" for the country's support of the UNESCO resolution disregarding the Jewish connection to Jerusalem, Israeli Deputy Minister for Regional Cooperation Ayoob Kara said.
"I'm sure that the earthquake happened because of the UNESCO decision," Kara, a member of the ruling Likud Party, wrote in a memo, Ynetnews website reported.
 
Voice of Judea Commentary:
 
These words coming from the Druze Knesset member did not ring well with his Italian hosts. Figure it takes a Druze MK to say what the Jewish Knesset Members never would have had the guts to say. Ironically, if there is a spiritual connection between earthquakes and denying the G-d given Jewish rights to Jerusalem, then Israel would be next G-d forbid to experience a quake. Indeed, how strange is it that Bibi and his underlings get sow huffy about UNESCO's denial of Jewish sovereignty over the Temple Mount. Who if not Bibi and his regime persecute Jews who try and pray on the Mount, so as not to antagonize the Arabs?
 
Ayoob Kara might not have realized it but the Jerusalem Talmud brings down the desecration of the Temple Mount and apathy about the destruction of the Temple as one of the four causes for earthquakes. It is brought down their in the name of Elijah, no less: When G-d looks down at the theatres and the circuses sitting comfortably, with tranquility and serenity, while His temple is destroyed he comes down to His world to bring destruction."
 
KARA TELSS US MA KARA - WHAT IS HAPPENING
Kara's words are not far off. Kara in Hebrew means happen. Ma Kara? What has happened. In Kara's name is a symbol that we can learn what happened even from him. What is so obvious to him and to outsiders is often so distant from the eyes of the Jews. The Haftora that we read from Isaiah 42 on Breisheit - this past shabbat, as these events unfolded speaks of the opening of the eyes of the blind and about how the nations will see the great miracles and deeds G-d performs on behalf of His chosen people even before the Jews open their eyes and see it.
 
 
 
Ironically, the Israeli Druze politician was on a state visit to the Vatican when the quakes hit central Italy on Wednesday, killing one and injuring 10 people.
 
Earlier the same day, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), passed a resolution criticizing Israel for its handling of the holy site in Jerusalem.
 
The document was adopted after heated debate over its wording, and particularly the Arabic names used in the document. Italy was among the nations voting in favor of the resolution.
 
An earthquake hit earlier in the month and yet a 4th earthquake registering 7.1 on the Richter scale hit Italy since then yesterday, 30.10.16.
 
ROME FALLING IS A SIGN THAT JERUSALEM SHALL RISE
The Rabbis learn that Jerusalem and Rome shall not rule simultaneously, and that when one rules the other shall fall, from the verse in the Bible depicting the eternal battle between Esav and Jacob which started in Rivka's womb, Breisheit 35;33, (see Rashi there). Thus the destruction near Rome (Esav) will hopefully come to symbolize the rise of Jerusalem and the building of the Temple speedily in the near future. The denial of the Jewish connection to Jerusalim by the international community at this time surely reflects the prophecy of the end of days when the nations will converge upon Jerusalem to contest the Jewish control of Jerusalem, (Zecharya 14).
 
War of Gog - we read in Haftarah Sukkot
We see the unfolding of the words of our prophets and of our sages who speak of the Moslems (Yishmael) and the Xtians (Edom)  fighting each other and then fighting against the Jews in Jerusalem only to suffer a mighty blow when G-d exacts revenge, for all of their affliction of the Jews throughout history, (see the Haftorah read on sukkot and Shabbat Hol Hamoed). And at that time the entire world will recognize G-d's existence through the Jewish victory and the great miracles. The verses in Yehezkel 38 speak of the great and final war, as does the Prophet Zecharya in chapter 14. Yehezkel the prophet warns that it will take 7 months to bury all of the dead from the Muslim and Xtain soldiers who will fall in and around Jerusalem.
 
REPUBLICANS VS DEMOCRATS - REPRESENTS ISLAM VS XTIANITY -
WITH JERUSALEM AND JEWS IN THE CENTER
How ironic that even the U.S. elections appears to be an unprecedented conflict between these two worlds of Islamic and Xtian forces. The Republicans heavily supported by pro-Israel Xtian forces while the Democratic Party and the Clintons are heavily connected to Islamic states such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Barack Hussein Obama's Islamic origin and connections are all too well known. And the latest scandal born out of Hillary's email connection to her Arab aid, Huma Mahmood Abedin now threaten to destroy Hillary's political career only days before the presidential elections. Abedin was born on July 28, 1976,[7] in KalamazooMichigan, to Syed Zainul Abedin (1928–93) and Saleha Mahmood Abedin.[4][8] At the age of two, she moved with her family to JeddahSaudi Arabia, where she was raised and lived until returning to the United States for college and later marrying Anthony Wiener who was a NY Congressman who is now being investigated for internet sex crimes. 
 
This showdown is all happening while the world converges on Syria and Iraq and as the world demands that Israel relinquish Jerusalem and all of Judea and Samaria.  This is all unfolding as earthquakes crush Italian cities around Rome and as the Russians send unprecedented fire power to the region; as Russia and China threaten that they prepare for World War III.
 
In the meantime the weather forecasters clear the beaches in Israel as they warn of a Tsunami effect on Israeli shores in wake of the last Italian quake.
 
Big things are coming down and the time is ripe for all Jews around the world to come home to Israel. Only in Zion shall the Jews find refuge, as the Prophet Yoel warns, (Yoel 3;5). Time to come home!
 
Psikta Rabati 36: Rabbi Yitzhak says: In the year that Moshiach will be revealed, all of the rulers of the world will be provoking each other (see recent  latest intensification of the conflict with Russia and America, and all of the other conflicts and wars around the globe and on Israel's northern border in Syria…)…and the King of Persia (Iran) provokes an Arab King (The Saudis and others including Iraq) and the Arab King (Saudis and other Arab regimes) seeks help from Edom (represented by Europe or US the leader of the pack). Then Persia destroys the world. The rest of the world shutters in fear and asks from where will we come and where shall we go. G-d answers them: My Children, don't be afraid! Whatever I have done I have only done for your sake. Why are you afraid. The time of your redemption has come! And this last redemption will not be like the redemption from Egypt when you had sorrow and further exiles afterwards. In this last redemption there will never again be sorrow and bondage under the nations again.

HuckPAC - Electing Conservatives Nationwide

October 2016

Robin,

Like a dead beached whale, Obamacare is decomposing in front of our eyes and stinking up the whole place. Doctors are quitting, insurers are fleeing (leaving many consumers with only one choice), Millennials are opting to pay the fine rather than sign up, co-pays and deductibles are rising, provider networks are narrowing and premiums are rising by over 100 percent in some states. Even Bill Clinton admits it's "the craziest thing in the world." So of course, the solution to this massive failure of government intrusion into health care is to turn it over to his wife Hillary, who will add even more government, and that will fix it.

Allow me to take you young folks (who find yourselves paying a fine and still having no health insurance) on a trip down Memory Lane to 1993. A freshly-inaugurated President Clinton put his wife in charge of reforming America's health care. Instead of listening to experts, she decided she knew best and surrounded herself with far-left sycophants. They locked out people who knew anything about the subject, in violation of open meetings laws, which led to lawsuits by conservative groups (any of this sounding familiar?). She eventually emerged with a 1,000-page behemoth of a bill that would have imposed massive bureaucratic control and killed jobs and the economy by forcing all businesses to provide insurance (she arrogantly snapped that she couldn't be responsible for every under-capitalized small business in America – spoken like what she is: someone who's never actually run a business). It was so poisonously unpopular that even though her own party refused to back it, it still cost the Democrats Congress in the 1994 elections.

And lest there be any doubt, last January in Vinton, Ohio, Hillary proudly declared, "It was called HillaryCare before it was called ObamaCare." That's right: the last time Hillary moved into the White House, the very first thing she did was to violate the laws and spark lawsuits in the pursuit of creating what was the first incarnation of Obamacare. And she's proud enough to brag about that.

Now, answer honestly: Do you really want to send her back to the White House?

Speaking of Obamacare, its chief architect Jonathan Gruber let the cat out of the bag on CNN and admitted that the most important thing that could be done to make it work is to increase the penalty for not buying health insurance. He's getting a lot of flak over it, but let's get real: this is an example of how political figures get in the most trouble when they accidentally tell the truth. Many Americans would rather pay the penalty than spend even more on narrow-network, high-deductible health insurance. And he's right, the only way, short of holding them at gunpoint, to force them to buy is to make the penalty as least as high as the cost of the policy so they'll say, "What the heck, I might as well just buy the lousy insurance."

But Obamacare is doomed because Democrats in Washington won't take that drastic step. They know in their hearts that if they did, most Americans wouldn't buy insurance. They'd instead use that money to buy tar and feathers and a tank of gas to drive to Washington to put the tar and feathers to good use.

Thankfully you don't have to drive to Washington to make a difference, you can chip in and financially support Huck PAC's conservative Republican candidates with your most generous donation here:

Robin,

Dr. Eric Walsh, a Seventh-Day Adventist lay minister, claims in a discrimination suit that the job he'd accepted from the state of Georgia Department of Public Health was rescinded because of his faith-based views.  He says they have no right to call for copies of his sermons, his training materials and even his Bible.

His Bible!  I suppose they want to check and see if he marked any passages in Leviticus that they can say violate transgender rights.

His lawyer points out that the very fact they're demanding these things shows that their objection to him was faith-based, as he claims.  Otherwise, why would they want them?

Just imagine what President Hillary Clinton might do with her Justice Department to trample religious freedom.

Mike Huckabee

Mike Huckabee Gems. Voting for a Third Party is a Strategy that helped Bill Clinton get elected. Dont be a Fence Sitter! There is a candidate whose Team and Platform is consistent with Torah and Noahide values and authentically loves and supports Israel and another Candidate whose team and platform annuls Torah and who have empowered evil regimes like Iran and Isis, powerful evil forces who have grown under their watch who reject basic laws of Universal Morality. The Choice is clear!

The message you have just received was delivered by Mike Huckabee and includes a message from Huck PAC, his political action committee. 

Robin,

If you know anyone who doesn't want Hillary to be President but just "can't" vote for Trump, show that person the story below. The emails between Cheryl Mills and Bobby Mook reveal some interesting inside stuff about campaign strategy --- as in, should Hillary be running primarily as a woman, or not? --- but one thing in particular stands out.

In almost an aside, Mook says, "JUST NEED A THIRD-PARTY SPOILER AND WE'LL BE ALL SET!"

He's referring to Clinton's win in 1992, in which third-party candidate Ross Perot made it possible for Bill Clinton to ascend to the Presidency with a whopping 43 percent of the vote.

If a third-party candidate siphons off enough of the anti-Hillary votes, or keeps Trump from winning Utah, we'll be ushering in the Dark Age Of Hillary Clinton this January. The only way to keep Hillary out of the White House is to vote for Donald Trump. If you're not crazy about Donald, sorry, but this is reality, and reality bites.

For the full story, click here.

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

A Message For Washington

By Mike Huckabee

The 41-day standoff between ranchers and federal authorities at Oregon's Malheur National Wildlife Refuge could have turned into a Branch Davidian-style slaughter. The ranchers were protesting the federal government's growing bureaucratic restrictions on ranchers whose families have been caretakers of Western public lands for generations. It was sparked by the arrest and imprisonment of two ranchers for burning brush. Luckily, most of the ranchers surrendered peacefully, although one, Robert "LaVoy" Finicum, was shot and killed by authorities when he tried to flee during a traffic stop. Eleven occupiers took plea deals, and another seven are awaiting trial.

But yesterday, after a five-week trial, the jury stunned the feds by finding protest leader Ammon Bundy and six co-defendants not guilty on all charges. Those charges included conspiring to impede federal employees through intimidation, threat or force; possessing guns in a federal facility; and theft of government property. Jurors seemingly agreed with their attorney that the charges were a heavy-handed overreaction to a peaceful protest, the kind held by groups like "Occupy Wall Street" that cause far more disruption without authorities shooting and arresting them; that the protest was part of a long American tradition of standing up to government overreach; and that the intent was not to break the rules but to force the government to follow its own rules. One defendant called the verdict a "stunning victory for rural America."

Whether you agree with the verdict or not, the fact that a jury reached it unanimously should send a loud, clear message to those in Washington who think that they can keep on endlessly expanding their power at the expense of Americans' rights and freedoms. They've been pushing it further and further for years, but Americans have just about reached the limits of their patience with liberal petty dictators. The Tea Party movement tried to make the point politely and were persecuted by the IRS and slandered by the media. The ranchers tried to make the point that the people were fed up with elitists with messiah complexes, and they were shot and arrested. Now, the Trump movement is making the point louder and less politely, and the elites respond with slander, disdain, dirty tricks, and threats of violence. They would be well advised to view this verdict as a three-alarm wake-up call that they had better start responding to the anger and frustration of the American people by listening to them and remembering who their bosses really are. Hint: it's not lobbyists, Wall Street bankers or George Soros.

NEW YORK, October 27, 2016

By Susan B. Tuchman, Esq.

Last month, The City University of New York (CUNY) released a report by two CUNY-hired lawyers to investigate allegations of campus anti-Semitism. The investigation was triggered by a 14-page letter from the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) to CUNY's leadership, describing the anti-Semitic harassment and intimidation that students were enduring on four CUNY campuses, perpetrated in part by the so-called "Students for Justice in Palestine" (SJP) group.

After the report was released, the Forward published an article about it. The article is both perplexing and troubling. Perplexing, because the Forward declared that SJP was "vindicated of anti-Semitism charges" in the report, when in fact, the investigators reached exactly the opposite conclusion. And troubling, because the Forward should be stronger and more focused in highlighting the serious harassment and intimidation that Jewish students are facing today.

The Forward article didn't mention that the investigators actually confirmed that CUNY has been plagued by numerous anti-Semitic incidents and that SJP was responsible for many of them. At CUNY's Brooklyn College, for example, a student's mother was harassed by SJP members simply because she was cleaning offensive anti-Israel chalkings off the sidewalk which were illegally drawn there in the first place. Her daughter, who witnessed the harassment, was herself too frightened even to file a complaint about it. Another Jewish student at the college who did not endorse the SJP's positions was repeatedly harassed by an SJP member who sent her alarming messages, including, "I hope you don't walk alone on campus." Yet another Jewish student was threatened by an SJP member simply for refusing an anti-Israel flyer; the report noted that the student was told that "they would knock on every door in Midwood [a section of Brooklyn] until they found her." At John Jay College of Criminal Justice, SJP threatened a student group for co-hosting an event with Hillel that had nothing to do with Israel. As the CUNY report confirmed, the group dropped its sponsorship, notifying Hillel that "we fear for your safety and ours."

The Forward published the statements of SJP's most vocal defenders who had the audacity to assert that "ZOA's claims that SJP engaged in anti-Semitic activity are completely unsubstantiated," when in fact, many were substantiated.

In addition to substantiating SJP's responsibility for several anti-Semitic acts, the CUNY report also shows that SJP incited Jew-hatred in others. At an SJP-organized rally at Hunter College to protest rising tuition and growing student debt, SJP turned the rally into a vehicle for attacking Jews. SJP promoted the rally on Facebook by criticizing "the Zionist administration" for, among other things, hosting Birthright programs and study-abroad programs in "occupied Palestine" – meaning Israel – and for "reproduce[ing] settler-colonial ideology through Zionist content of education." SJP could not possibly have known whether CUNY administrators support Israel; this was an instance where "Zionist" was a code word for "Jew" – a phenomenon that the CUNY investigators confirmed. Given how SJP framed the rally, outrageously blaming Jews and Jewish programs for high tuition and student debt, it is hardly surprising that, as the CUNY report confirmed, protestors at SJP's rally screamed that Jewish people are "racist sons of bitches" and shouted "Go back home, and get the f—k out of my country," and that the crowd chanted, "Jews out of CUNY" and "Death to Jews."

None of these troubling findings were reflected in the Forward article. Nor did the article even mention the investigators' findings that the anti-Semitism has caused students to feel harassed, threatened, and unsafe, making some fearful of openly identifying as Jewish on campus. Instead the Forward published the statements of SJP's most vocal defenders who had the audacity to assert that "ZOA's claims that SJP engaged in anti-Semitic activity are completely unsubstantiated," when in fact, many were substantiated. The Forward even accepted without challenge SJP's claim that anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism, never noting the fact that the U.S. government has long recognized that anti-Zionism – denying Israel's right to exist – is anti-Semitism.

Even more inappropriately, the Forward didn't seek a response to SJP's false claims from anyone versed in the situation. Instead, the paper published comments from Dov Waxman, a professor at Northeastern University who falsely claimed that the ZOA has made "largely baseless" and "exaggerated" claims of anti-Semitism at CUNY and other schools. In fact, Professor Waxman lacks any personal knowledge about the problems at CUNY or on any of the other campuses where the ZOA has worked to protect the legal right of Jewish students to a learning environment that is physically and psychologically safe. Indeed, before Waxman's tenure at Northeastern, the ZOA provided the university's president with a detailed account of the anti-Semitism that Jewish students were enduring on his campus. The Anti-Defamation League followed up with its own letter to the president, corroborating the incidents we described and urging that "the assertions catalogued in ZOA's recent letter cannot, and should not, be dismissed." They weren't. Commendably, Northeastern took several positive steps to remedy the hostile environment for Jewish students, including placing SJP on supervised probation.

Members of the public often ask us why campus anti-Semitism is being tolerated when university leaders are – as they should be – cracking down forcefully when other minorities are targeted. The answer is a complicated one. But it surely doesn't help when the problem is minimized or justified. We hope that in the future, the Forward and other respected publications will more thoroughly cover every aspect of this growing problem.
