A person’s mental health can best be gauged in terms of self preservation, as well as how concerned they are for the welfare of their nearest and dearest. Consequently, said caring flows outward to their community.
At the very least, the mentally besieged should urgently read Dr Kenneth Levin’s tour de force ‘The Oslo Syndrome:Delusions Of A People Under Siege’ – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_Levin.
If they are short on funds this blogger will gladly kick in some bucks – in dollars or shekels. It will be a people-saving effort, even if not tax deductible.
That being said, with the US economy falling off a clip – courtesy of Barack Hussein Obama - coupled with his foreign policy disasters, including his deep animus towards Israel, what part of reality-based thinking are these ‘Rabbis’ missing?
Apparently, a whole damn lot.
Now, it is certainly not a myth, nor is it hype, to suggest that Jews ( in general, though we have our share of dumb asses ) have been blessed with an inordinate amount of intellectual prowess. Nobel Prize statistics alone – and I am not referring to the ‘Peace Prizes’ – bear this out. Forget about factoring in all the medical, scientific, technological, economic, agricultural (plus other) innovations/breakthroughs which never receive prizes, but which help millions around the globe – even our enemies! The numbers are simply astonishing, not only in relation to how few Jews there are, but in juxtaposition to general population statistics.
Take a look at ‘Start Up Nation’ - http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704779704574553884271802474.html
and extrapolate therein – http://www.simpletoremember.com/articles/a/jewish-nobel-prize-winners/.
The statistics are absolute. They are not fungible. Nor do they lie.
Perhaps it is a sort of quid pro quo – a payback of indefinable proportions – from G-d up above for our constant, non-stop persecution, in one form or another. Who knows? If I knew the answer to that, then surely I would be receiving some sort of prize!
This blog has touched upon a bizarre Jewish penchant for tortuous cognitive dissonance (others are equally afflicted, but too many of our minute population are infected, which by extension becomes dangerous to our overall existence ), but it may be time to up the ante.
Let us now call it a form of “Jewish madness”, manifested in self abnegation, regardless of their bleating otherwise. “Tikun Olam” aka “repairing the world” is their popular, albeit nauseous refrain.
Hey ‘Rabbis’ (and fellow cohorts), what about those closest to home? Don’t they matter?
Again, leftist madness has gripped too many Jews.
A previous commentary ‘Leftism…Lethal To Jews & Their Overall Health…Others Too’ is ( heaven forbid ) not an exercise in beating up on fellow Jews who hold opposite political views. To the contrary. A last ditch attempt is being made to save them from themselves, and at the same time trying to stop them from dragging their fellow Jews into the abyss!
Hell no…this ( Jewish ) blogger won’t go!
Let’s face facts. There is power in numbers, therefore, other groups will survive ( besides, they have their own mischief makers to upend…please do so! ), but Jews won’t. For once ones ideology becomes ones “religion”, all manner of chaos ensues – mental and physical -.http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/08/leftism-lethal-to-jews-their-overall-health-others-too-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/.
So, how shocked is this blogger at this latest piece of depressing news? Not at all. But, it doesn’t mean that its essence shouldn’t be blared from the rooftops, in the ( fleeting ) hope of turning things around.
Perhaps others, wiser and with a bigger megaphone, can come up with an antidote to cure them. You never know. It ain’t over till it is.
‘600 Rabbis Throw Their Support Behind Obama’ -
“More than two-times the number of rabbis join grassroots election effort targeting Jewish voters than did in 2008.”
WASHINGTON – “More than 600 rabbis displayed their support for US President Barack Obama’s reelection bid on Tuesday, joining a campaign initiative called Rabbis for Obama.”
“Obama for America announced Tuesday that Rabbis for Obama is designed to “engage and mobilize grassroots supporters.”
“The rabbis represent themselves and not individual synagogues or organizations, according to the news release. The names of all the rabbis can be found here. Most of the rabbis are Reform or Conservative, although a handful are Orthodox.”
“This list of rabbis represents a broad group of respected Jewish leaders from all parts of the country. These rabbis mirror the diversity of American Jewry,” Ira Forman, the Obama campaign’s Jewish outreach director, said in a news release.”
“Their ringing endorsement of President Obama speaks volumes about the president’s deep commitment to the security of the state of Israel and his dedication to a policy agenda that represents the values of the overwhelming majority of the American Jewish community,” Forman said.
“The number of rabbis signing on is more than double the number who added their names to President Obama’s 2008 campaign at the launch of a similar effort then.”
“Rabbis Sam Gordon and Steven Bob, both of Illinois, and Burt Visotzky of New York are co-chairs for this initiative. The first two started Rabbis for Obama in 2008.”
NOT unlike any other group of people they have a right to their opinions. However, they do not have a right to drag others off a cliff with them.
They must be publicly remonstrated and upbraided ( perhaps smacked ), thereby, reminded that history does repeat itself. And that history will record the parts they played too.
Barely amounting to a blip on the historical calender ( less than 80 years ago ), half of world Jewry was in peril, yet most influential US Rabbis ( and general Jewish leadership ) supported “going along to get along” with the administration’s “see no evil, hear no evil” tactics. NOT only that, but they worked assiduously to silence those who had the temerity to fight for their brethren. Think – Peter Bergson - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillel_Kook – one of my heroes.
Their obstructionists – blind as bats.
In fact, ‘Rabbi’ Stephen Wise - well connected bastard that he was – became the chief culprit among his fellow travelers in Jewish leadership, leading US Jewry astray in defense of their desperate brethren in Europe. His intransigence ( and his utter disdain for his ‘parochial/provincial’ brothers and sisters) against fellow Jews, who wanted nothing more than to save their European brethren, guaranteed that Washington would sit on the sidelines, while millions were slaughtered, many from my family too!
This blogger holds a grudge against those who frustrate justice, and has an acute historical memory.
And akin to their predecessors, aren’t these ‘Rabbis’ also attempting to bend to the will of an irredeemably hostile POTUS, but this time to the detriment of half of world Jewry in Israel?
Over my dead body.
And how do they think millions of unemployed job seekers, desperate to rid the albatross from their necks, are going to react to their support? Are they the new jive-talking Jew-boys, the ones Barack Hussein Obama uses as a “kosher” fig leaf?
Aren’t there enough Obamabots running loose, hailing from every religion and color of the rainbow? Why are they joining this un-American party?
If the readers are up to an important history lesson, regarding ‘Rabbi Wise’ and his crew – http://www.hirhome.com/israel/leaders1.htm – look no further. This site rules.
And the same leadership from today’s Jewish Congress (Wise was a President of both the World Jewish Congress and the American Jewish Congress ! ) is now opening its doors – through “interfaith-dialogue” – to Islamic terror connected groups. Don’t let your mouth hang open. Didn’t this blogger just state – history repeats?
Are you warm & fuzzy yet? Do the readers understand that Rabbi Schneier is a self promoter? And that Russell Simmons is hardly Jew-friendly? Talk about being a dupe and a dope – http://www.thejewishchronicle.net/view/full_story/19111695/article-Hip-hop-mogul-Simmons-defends-Farrakhan-Foxman-comparison-at-Jerusalem-conference?instance=lead_story_right_column.
And the tales that are told in the confines of New York City’s upper west/east side Jewish salons re this duo….I will hold off on this – for now.
At the end of the day, the ‘Rabbis’ delusions are laid buck naked through this commentary – ‘When Intellectual Honesty Smacks Up Against Leftist Delusions…A Nation-Saving Prescription To Beat Them Back’ - http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/10/when-intellectual-honesty-smacks-up-against-leftist-delusions-a-nation-saving-prescription-to-beat-them-back-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki-84/
Though the above commentary mainly references the leftist cancer in Israel’s midst, this blog has amply demonstrated that leftist fantasies eschew a particular address. It is the same here, there and everywhere.
They must be beaten back. There is no other option.
