To anyone who may have stopped by over the past two weeks and found nothing new to read... I apologize for the lack of posts. I did sign in a few times, intending to post, but could not bring myself to write anything. I simply felt too sick to my stomach. The barrage of news stories about bad things being done to and being done by various Jewish people has been so overwhelming that I honestly feel physically sick just thinking about it.
A Jewish mother starves her baby nearly to death and gets arrested, leading hundreds of other Jews to riot and set fires and attack other Jews in the streets of Jerusalem. A Jewish family is humiliated by an anti-Semitic policeman at a German airport. Two Jewish babies die tragically, one in Deal and one in Ramat Eshkol. The "burqa Mom" of Bet Shemesh is convicted of child abuse. Jewish camps and bungalow colonies in Upstate NY refuse to cooperate with local authorities who are trying to enforce building safety regulations, thereby endangering the lives of their children and creating an inexcusable Chillul Hashem. Israeli Border Police and Jewish settlers in the West Bank prepare to square off against each other. A New York Congressman who has always portrayed himself as the Jewish boy-next-door gets engaged to a Muslim woman. And now of course, the fabulous news that 5 prominent and respected Rabbis and a bunch of other Jewish men have been arrested by the FBI for money laundering, tax evasion, and illegal trafficking in human organs.
