PLO FLAG Raised at UN for the first Time. Abbas no longer honors Oslo Accords.


From Dan Friedman

Just a few hours ago at the UN, terror chieftain Mahmoud Abbas declared before the world that his Fakestinian nation would no longer honor the Oslo Accords. The Jews are probably the only ones on earth who don't see the golden opportunity Abbas has just handed them. Israel now has the perfect right (nay, the obligation!) to follow suit and relieve themselves of an absurd pursuit that in 22 years has never given them anything except war, pain and suffering.

But the betting here is that no such sanity will take hold in Israel. The Jews will reflexively cling to their fantasies of peace even as their peace partners have bluntly state they're officially backing away from negotiations. Is this an addiction, a fetish or some type of sadomasochism? Hard to say. Maybe all three. Whatever, Israel and its delusional leaders will still insist it only takes one Jew to tango – and that they can defy gravity forever.

This comes on the heel of the Palestinian Flag being raised in the UN.

The Palestinian flag has been raised at the UN in a historic step, despite prior condemnation from Israel and the US.

PLO Flag Raised at UN For the First Time 

Irony: flag-raising comes minutes after Abbas cancels Oslo Accords, which had PLO removed from international terror lists.

Fwd: The "Hidden" Agenda of Barack Obam

---------- Forwarded message ----------

The "Hidden" Agenda of Barack Obama

Prof. Paul Eidelberg

The old concept of "world government" has surfaced again, this from more or less elusive statements of Barack Obama, a self-professed multicultural moral relativist.

Barack Obama's political objective has ever been to emasculate the United States.  He abhors the concept of American exceptionalism, which represents the antithesis of everything he stands for as a pseudo-Muslim with a Marxist agenda.

As I have demonstrated in books and articles, American Exceptionalism is rooted in America's primary foundational document, the Declaration of Independence. The pivotal concept of the Declaration is, "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God." The God affirmed in the Declaration is none other than the God of Israel.

In fact, James Wilson, next to Madison the most important participant during the debates of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, regarded the concept of the "laws of Nature and of Nature's God" an abbreviation of the Seven Noahide Laws of Universal Morality embodied in the Book of Genesis.

Wilson was a professor of law. He was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court by President George Washington. His position regarding "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" was shared by educated men of the eighteenth century, in Europe as well as in America.

America's Founding Fathers never harbored any doubt about the wisdom and propriety of the Nation State system. Indeed, the concept of the nation state is sanctioned and exemplified in the Bible of Israel, hence long before the 1648 Peace Treaty of Westphalia. 
Moreover, it was the nation state system that produced the extraordinary intellectual and political freedom as well as the material progress of Western Civilization – the progress that led to the abolition of slavery and the alleviation of toil, poverty, and disease  – and not only in the western world.

Although the nation state system has not eliminated war, the basic fault lies not in the "system," but in the frailties of human nature, that is, in mankind's failure to abide by the Seven Noahide Laws of universal morality, which no form of World Government can provide or effectively prescribe short of tyranny.

Indeed, a World Government would require an absolute monopoly of military power, as well as a worldwide network of spies in every country to thwart any local attempt to develop weapons that could challenge that central power.

Such a government would be no less tyrannical than any Mullocracy or Islamic dictatorship.  Is this the hidden agenda of the Obama-Iranian nuclear agreement?

Consider the following facts:

First, Obama has shown nothing but scorn for America's foundational documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

Second, Obama, as a self-professed Muslim, indicates that he rejects the Biblical as well as American principle that all men are born equal.

Third, consistent with the preceding, Obama genuflected to King Abdullah, a Muslim despot. He thereby displayed a foreign loyalty antithetical to America.

Fourth, Obama has displayed a hostile attitude toward Israel, America's most important political and ideological ally.

Fifth, Obama has undermined America's worldwide standing as a nation dedicated to freedom.

Sixth, Obama has devastated the American economy and saddled the country with enormous debt.

Seventh, Obama has slashed U.S. defense expenditures.

Eighth, Obama's multicultural moral relativism undermines American pride in the nobility and justice of the nation's cause, as exemplified in America's rescuing Europe from Nazi and Communist tyranny.

Ninth, Obama has displayed a less than tepid attitude toward Islamic terrorism.

Tenth, Obama's appointment of Muslims to key positions of his administration, such as the Department of Homeland Security and the CIA, indicates that he does not regard Islam as an adversary of the United States.

For these and other reasons, the present writer regards Obama as America's most dangerous enemy, hence, that every lawful means should be taken to remove him from office as soon as possible!◙

Chag Sameach! Hakhel! United Rabbis: Stop Iran Rally by UN. JBS Today at 3pm. Videos of Rabbi's against Iran!


Sukkot is a time we stand with the 4 species  United all Together:  One who is learned, one who has good deeds, one who is either learned or with good deeds and one who is neither learned nor with good deeds.   We can not fulfill the Mitzvah of 4 Species, the Arba Minim,  unless each and every one of these species are present!

Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, as it is known to non Jews, is also celebrated by Non Jews.  Every year, in our times as well,  many non Jewish groups make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.   Sukkot is a time for the 70 Nations to bring gifts to Jerusalem a time of intense joyous celebration for all!  

It is not only a Mitzva for Jews to be Oleh Regel, to make a special trip to Jerusalem on Sukkot but for non Jews as well.  

This is a Hakhel Year!

This Rally at the UN is hopefully the first of many Hakhel opportunities for both Jews and Righteous Noahides.  Please check out this link about Hakhel!  

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term Hakhel (Hebrew הקהל) refers to a biblical commandment of assembling all Jewish men, women and children, as well as "strangers" to assemble and hear the reading of the Torah by the king of Israel once every seven years. [1]Originally this ceremony took place at the site of the Temple in Jerusalem during Sukkot in the year following a Seventh Year. According to the Mishna, the "commandment to assemble" (Hebrew: מצות הקהל mitzvat hakhel) was performed throughout the years of the Second Temple era and, by inference, during the First Temple era as well. The biblical mitzvah of Hakhel is only in effect when all the Jewish people reside in Israel. In the 20th century, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, repeatedly encouraged all Jews to utilize the Hakhel year to assemble men, women and children and encourage each other to increase in Torah observance and study, and foster an environment of fear of G‑d.[2] ... 
The follow portions were read by the King. at Hakhel.  
The reading consisted of the following sections from the Book of Deuteronomy:
From the beginning of the book through Shema Yisrael (6:4);
The second paragraph of the Shema (11:13-21);
"You shall surely tithe" (14:22-27);
"When you have finish tithing" (26:12-15);
The section about appointing a king (17:14-20);
The blessings and curses (28:1-69).

Devarim 26:15
הַשְׁקִיפָה מִמְּעוֹן קָדְשְׁךָ מִן הַשָּׁמַיִם וּבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמְּךָ אֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאֵת הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר נָתַתָּה לָנוּ כַּאֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּעְתָּ לַאֲבֹתֵינוּ אֶרֶץ זָבַת חָלָב וּדְבָשׁ:
Look down from Your holy dwelling, from the heavens, and bless Your people Israel, and the ground which You have given to us, as You swore to our forefathers a land flowing with milk and honey.

Subject: Videos of Rabbis' 9/9 and 9/20 Rallies; JBS Today at 3; Iran Update‏
To: "" <>

Dear Friends of Israel and the Jewish People,
Rabbi's Rallies of 9/20 at the United States Mission to the U.N. and 9/9 in Washington, D.C.
If you were unable to attend last week's Sept. 20th rally at the United States Mission to the U.N. organized by Rabbi Avi Weiss and Rabbi Bruce Ginsburg, you can see the YouTube video of the rally produced by the Jewish Broadcasting Service by using the link below or by tuning in to JBS on Sunday at 3 p.m.  (thanks to Cindy Grosz).   
Those who attended witnessed an impressive display of Jewish unity in opposition to the proposed agreement with Iran.   The rally culminated with the delivery of a letter, addressed to President Obama, into the hands of a State Department representative at the U.S. Mission to the U.N.   
On Wednesday, Sept. 9th, hundreds of rabbis and synagogue leaders from all over the United States descended on Capitol Hill to rally against the Iran nuclear agreement and to meet with members of the Senate and House of Representatives.   Below is the link to an article and a video: 

Iran Update
1) The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported on Monday, Sept. 21 that Iran had turned over samples from Parchin military base, a suspected site of nuclear experimentation, and confirmed that the samples were collected by Iranians AFTER extensive renovations were done at the site.  Since the last IAEA inspection in 2005, parts of the complex have been bulldozed "leaving analysts to doubt there is any evidence left to collect" (NYT, 9/22/15). 
2) Secretary of State John Kerry met with Iran's Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, on Saturday to "search for a political solution to the Syrian conflict," this, despite Kerry's acknowledgement in 2014 that "Iran is currently a major actor with respect to adverse consequences in Syria" and despite the knowledge that "Iran has long had a strategic interest in maintaining Assad in power because "the airport in Damascus serves as a channel for shipping Iranian weapons to Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shiite militia."  Iran is directing Hezbollah's fighting in Syria, provided weapons to the Syrian government, and sent its Quds force personnel to Syria (NYT, 9/27/15). 
3) Unbeknownst to us, Russia, a primary member of the team that negotiated the nuclear agreement with Iran, in addition to its contract to sell Iran the sophisticated S-300 anti-missile system, entered into a $20 billion contract with Iran for the purchase of oil in exchange for goods as early as April, 2015 even before the details of the agreement were finalized.    The Kremlin confirmed at that time that Russia had already sent grain, equipment, and construction materials to Iran in the barter deal,  the first step in securing a foothold in a new market since the West imposed sanctions on Russia over Ukraine (Reuters, 4/14/15).  
As we prayed on Yom Kippur, may Hashem nullify all harsh decrees upon us and bless the Family of Israel with peace,

Iran Deal Advocacy: Rabbi's, OU, Agudath Israel vs Neturei Karta. Neturei Karta Wins? Search on Youtube for "Rabbis DC" and see what comes up

We are all accustomed to seeing the Neturei Karta contingent at the Israel Day Parade...They annoy us and we dismiss them. "they represent a fringe group.."  we tell ourselves. 

This article will prove that they are very influential and very dangerous!

They look like many Chareidi Jews particularly similar to Satmar Chasidim who do not  particularly like the secular Zionist government in Israel.  However, unlike Neturei Karta, Satmar Chassidim do NOT support empowering our enemies like IRAN.  Those of us Jews in the loop dismiss Neturei Karta as idiots and assume they are being paid off by Iran because no sane Jew really wants a nuclear Iran.   Do these "Jews" really want to reap what they sow?   So we either try to engage them in dialogue, ignore them,  shove an anti Iran poster in their face, give them a dirty look, yell at them or at worst, sing Hatikvah...

Yes, it is time to take them seriously as they have become sophisticated with a strong youtube and online presence. Their online presence is stronger than the Rabbi's at the Rabbi-led Rally in front of UN before Yom Kippur, stronger than OU Rabbi's and the OU Advocacy group who assembled on Capital Hill before Rosh Hashana and stronger than Rabbinic Organization, Agudath Israel and their Advocacy group the Lefkowitz Leadership Initiative. Let me go so far as to say that Agudath Israel of America empowers Neturei Karta. 

Here is proof!
RABBINIC-LED RALLY September 20, 2015 Erev Yom Kippur

Read about this  Rabb-ledi Rally against a nuclear Iran. I was there and I thought it was an amazing Rally. 
Neturei Karta was there as well in relatively strong numbers,  in support of a nuclear Iran.

These look alike Rabbi's, fools dressed in Rabbi's garb, were on E.  45th street closer to 2nd ave. We were closer to 1st Ave. These fake Rabbi's had signs "We support a nuclear Iran deal".   Here is a youtube of them.

Please note that as of tonight, post Yom Kippur, they have a youtube up and the Rabbis of Conscience-led rally do not. Shalom TV video'd this amazing Rally but because of the holidays didn't yet post it. Hopefully sooner than later, because the fake Rabbi's beat us to it.  
Personally I took several excellent videos of the real Rabbi's speaking but these videos were longer than 2 and a half minutes. I  have yet to figure out how to upload large files onto youtube.   Luckily Steve Epstein managed to post some videos of this rally on facebook.   While we were an amazing group of professional  volunteers working on this rally, we were also trying to prepare for Yom Kippur etc.
The Neturei Karta probably got a busload of students and followers. (They probably came by bus because the subways have forbidden images. I would like to know where their funding is coming from?) They need to hire someone to video and someone to post on youtube with a misrepresentation of who they are. 
They say that they represent true Judasim as opposed to the other Rabbi's who don't.
 If you were uninformed researcher, which Rabbi would you believe. The one with the strong Youtube presence or the one w/o youtube presence?  
OU Advocacy and Press Conference on September 9th North Lawn of the Capital.

Very little coverage. I found this OU article about this event which brought in hundreds of Rabbis for the day and there was a price that one needed to pay for a seat on the bus.  Rabbi's took off valuable time to attend this rally and lobby in Congress. .
Search "Youtube for OU Iran Deal and see what comes up".  Not much except Neturei Karta.  I finally found this unprofessional youtube under OU Advocacy.

You can not see the speaker.  The message was not a message of Torah but rather about the fact that the Deal with Iran is a bad deal, bad for Israel's security and bad for America. A moral objection. . These were Rabbi's but no Torah Message that the Land of Israel is Promised to the our Forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for an everlasting inheritance! If there was such a message it wasn't posted. 

Neturei Karta in comparison, had an impressive bunch of videos posted on youtube.  

The typical Satmar Chossid probably doesn't realize that the world looks at these images and assumes that they are all supporting a nuclear Iran under the Neturei Karta umbrella of peace and love.

Neturei Karta of course accuse the other Rabbi's as being false...

 These videos were calling for peace with Iran.
The Message of Neturei Karta is: Stand with the Peace Process with Jews who are "True to the Torah". The Deal is a G-dly work with the backing of the True Brooklyn Jewish Community in Williamsburg, the largest Jewish Community in New York.  Bloodshed of the world is because of the Zionists and this group wishes to show gratitude to the Arabs for giving Jews the freedom to practice Judaism in freedom.
 The OU Advocy has put their emphasis on closed meeting advocacy with members of Congress.  Gillibrand, Jeffries, Corey Booker, Schumer  etc.

What do they have to show for it?   Not much.  Gillibrand, Jeffries, Booker came out for the Deal.  

Even Schumer disappointed us since he was too busy to study the Iran Deal because he was busy working on the Education bill.  See 3:30 into video with Chuck Schumer:UP WITH STEVE KORNACKI 7/19/15 I'll make up my own mind on Iran nuke deal .  

Just knowing that Iran was getting $150 billion dollars of sanctions relief is reason enough to come out against it. What exactly about the deal did he have to study? (Caroline Glick at Times Square Rally opposing the Deal)

When Gillibrand and other Democrats came out in support of the deal, Schumer finally came out against it.   Even after knowing that there were hidden side deals, Schumer didn't try very hard to convince fellow Democrats that this was a bad deal.   Even with his lukewarm opposition, Obama came out with full force backlash...

BTW, Yes, the Yeshivoth did received promises of big bucks from New York State early this summer around this time..Schumer was probably focusing on this! Monies that were somehow owed to private schools from 9,10 years ago.... reimbursable...Impeccable timing?


 Earlier this summer, the New York State Education Department announced that over the next two years it would be distributing $250 million in mandated services/CAP reimbursement to nonpublic schools across the state with $125 million to be paid out in each of the two years...
Mrs. Deborah Zachai, Director of Education Affairs for Agudath Israel of America, explained that these monies have been owed to nonpublic schools for more than a decade. Due to budget shortfalls and the use of a flawed formula to calculate the actual reimbursement due to nonpublic schools, the debt accumulated and became substantial over a more than ten year period.
It has been a long-standing legislative priority for Agudath Israel of America – whose late president Rabbi Moshe Sherer was instrumental in getting the mandated services law enacted over 40 years ago – to obtain payment on the debt. The state's allocation of $250 million for this purpose, goes a long way towards accomplishing that priority.

"We are absolutely thrilled that, at long last, the state has begun making payments on the debt it has owed yeshivos and other nonpublic schools for so many years. We anticipate that the yeshiva share of these funds should be approximately $80 million over the next two years, in addition to the regular mandated and CAP payments. This infusion of substantial funding is wonderful news for yeshivos and should significantly help ease their cash flow," said Mrs. Zachai. 
"This development is long overdue, but nonetheless extremely welcome," added Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel, Agudath Israel's Executive Vice President. "We look forward to working with the State Education Department over the next two years as these vital funds are distributed."

Agudah Advocacy for Iran:

Aside from these posts and this PDF which gives talking points and  sample letters to our elected officials, that's about it. And it is pretty hard to cut and paste a pdf file. 

Agudah has been rather silent. No videos about our G-d Given rights to Eretz Yisroel,  Yehuda and Shomron based on commentaries of the  Biblical boundaries of Eretz Yisroel delineated in Parshat Masei. No videos about a dangerous Iran deal,

Compare Neturei Karta's online and video/youtube presence and "Torah Message" in support of a Nuclear Iran with that of Agudath Yisroel against a Nuclear Iran.  Neturei Karta wins hands down!

Yet Agudath Yisroel is a mainstream ultra religious Organization with hundreds of thousands of followers and thousands of Rabbi's.  They have a paid office staff and even a public relations office in DC.

While Neturei Karta is a fringe group numbering maybe in the hundreds. We suspect they are getting paid off...

We know that Agudah knows how to advocate when it really wants to.....

Here is a successful protest organized by Agudath Israel. 

Haredim pray in New York for cancellation of Israeli ultra-Orthodox draft bill 

NEW YORK – Tens of thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews gathered in New York's financial district on Sunday to protest against a Knesset bill to draft previously exempt yeshiva students into the IDF or national service. The protest, described as a prayer meeting by organizer Agudath Israel of America, was intended to serve as a follow-up to last week's mega-protest in Jerusalem, which drew a crowd of hundreds of thousands.
Officially, Agudah is against the Iran deal but compare their effectiveness in advocacy against the Nuclear Iran deal with  the Rally they helped to organize on June 9, 2013 against the Chareidi Draft of Israel.

Please watch the following youtube video of this Rally, probably put out by Neturei Karta whose presence with Satmar was significant:

Apparently, Agudah helped to organize a Neturei Karta event. Probably very disturbing to the majority of members of Agudah.   

other posts about this Protest rally....

Seriously, is the government of Israel more of a threat to the Chareidi Jew than Iran, Hamas, Hizbollah, Fatah and Isis? Is the 150 billion dollars of freed assets to a terror State of Iran less of a problem then the State of Israel calling for a Chareidi Draft to fight real enemies who wish to annihilate her?

Case in point: How would the Chareidim suggest that they defend themselves against the Hamas tunnels discovered in Operation Protective Edge without an army? 

How long did it take for a Druze Policeman to come to stop the terrorists who massacred and dismembered with gruesome cruelty those that were davening in Har Nof?
Perhaps if B'nei Torah synagogue, the shul in Har Nof  where the massacre took place, had mispallelim, worshippers,  with ammunition on them, as is the case of most Dati Leumi shuls (religious Zionists synagogues)  perhaps the terrorists could have been neutralized sooner than the 7 minutes it took for the police to come.  Will Chareidim blame the gov't of Israel for not providing equal protection for Chareidim as other Israeli citizens?

The Truth of Torah will Silence Neturei Karta. 

 ...And large sums of monies from the US Government, can silence Agudah from speaking words of Truth and words of Torah.  

Am I suggesting impropriety?

Warning lights!  Wait a moment.  Motzei Shem Ra!  Lashon HARA! Giving someone a bad reputation is a very serious violation!  Especially a Rabbinic Organization. Especially Motzei Yom Kippur!  

How can this money that is "coming to Yeshivoth via Agudah Advocacy" be considered unholy?

The Yeshiva's deserve this money I hear you ask. We pay our taxes and shouldn't we receive funds from our hard earned tax payer money for our children's education like all New York State residents?

This is an excellent question.   Yes is my answer to that question. Yeshivoth surely deserve this money and if New York State gives this money to Yeshivoth, they will truly merit to have upright citizens.  A win win situation for all. 

So where lies the problem? 

The answer I believe lies in a personal discovery made after a long and difficult struggle and search to understand the Mitzvah of Shemittah.  I will explain it to you in abridged form related to the topic at hand. If you wish to read about this further and how Shemittah is related you can visit this post.

The Tikkun lies in the way one gives and the way one receives. If one gives in the proper spirit that we are doing the right thing and that monies are owed to the private schools that is the right way for the State to give. Those receiving are not receiving a present.  They are receiving that which is due them. They don't owe those who have released the monies anything. They are receiving their fair share.  

But why did it take so long to release the funds and why davka now?  This release of funds is suspicious.  Are there any strings attached?  Was there an unwritten agreement, like don't fight us on the Iran deal in order for the monies to be released, If so, this is a bribe or like tossing a dog a bone when it is very hungry. One is blinded from a bribe and this is what can make it unholy.  

Those who remember how the expulsion of Gush Katif happened and how the religious parties initially opposed the decree only to be bought with Educational subsidies are super sensitive to this possibility.

Keeping Shemittah in the proper spirit reminds us that it is G-d alone who provides for our sustenance and that there is One G-d... a very difficult Mitzvah to keep indeed...

The Truth of Torah 

These Pesukim appeared in the Yom Kippur davening more than once. 
זְכֹר לְאַבְרָהָם לְיִצְחָק וּלְיִשְׂרָאֵל עֲבָדֶיךָ אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּעְתָּ לָהֶם בָּךְ וַתְּדַבֵּר אֲלֵהֶם אַרְבֶּה אֶת זַרְעֲכֶם כְּכוֹכְבֵי הַשָּׁמָיִם וְכָל הָאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת אֲשֶׁר אָמַרְתִּי אֶתֵּן לְזַרְעֲכֶם וְנָחֲלוּ לְעֹלָם:
 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your very Self, and to whom You said: 'I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and all this land which I said that I would give to your seed, they shall keep it as their possession forever.' "

I marched alongside Neturei Karta wearing my Hebron T shirt and holding a map of the Land of Israel  based on the Biblical delineations of the borders of Israel according to commentaries  of Chumash.  

All of the maps of these delineations, according to all the opinions, include Judea and Samaria. Here is the picture  of the map on the T shirt:  

I tried to emphasize to those that paid any attention, that this was Chumash, our everlasting Covenant with Hashem,  and not merely the boundaries of the modern State of Israel! 

The back of this T shirt had Biblical references of the boundaries  of the Land of Israel in Parshat Masei. Numbers 34: 1-15

As the Neturei Karta were chanting "Judaism, Yes, Zionism No", I marched alongside them chanting quotes about Zion from the Torah and from the Liturgy. "Ki Mizion Tezei Torah,  Udvar Hashem MeYerushalyim" From Zion comes forth Torah and the word of G-d from Jerusalem.  ..VeZechezena Ainenu Beshuvcha LeZion BeRachamim.....  May our eyes behold Your return to Zion in compassion.  Blessed are you Hashem, who restores His Presence to Zion. (translation courtesy of Artscroll)

They looked at me truly confused.  Deep down they too have a Jewish soul yearning for the truth... 

Years from now, the world including our children and Chareidi children will get the wrong impression that all ultra Orthodox supported IRAN Deal.   All they will see are the Neturei Karta youtube posts.  

Something to reflect upon.

Pitka Tova, A good Kvitel....
