Pomegranate Time

All over Israel the trees are heavy with pomegranates. This amazing fruit is desirable for its healthy, antioxidant qualities. The word pomegranate, “rimon” in Hebrew, is derived from the Latin words “pomum” (apple) and “granatus” (seeded). We read in Exodus 28:33-34, that the kohanim are told to weave pomegranates into the hem of their robes, and right up to today, Jews eat pomegranates on Rosh Hoshanah (New Year) for its symbolism of fruitfulness, knowledge, learning, and wisdom. Some even claim it was the “forbidden fruit” in the garden of Eden. A search on the internet produces a wealth of interesting articles (and great recipes).
You can make juice, shakes, cocktails, jams, jellies, marinades and sauces for lamb or chicken, throw it over your cereal, mix it into yogurt, or toss it into a salad for a marvelous taste. The culinary ideas are endless, as are the stories. One interesting story is about the link to the 613 “mitzvahs” (commandments) of the Torah. It is said that if you count the seeds in a pomegranate you will find exactly 613–one for each mitzvah. If anyone takes the time–let us know how many you found! Good Health and Good Eating!

Gilad Shalit – Over 1500 Days

Everyone in Israel, and in many countries around the world have heard the name Gilad Shalit. What parent would not feel pain for the Shalits in their struggle to have their son returned? They say he is hidden underground–Try to imagine what it must be like for him. After the rescue of the miners in Chile, it is said that they (the miners) will suffer emotionally–What of Gilad Shalit?
Gilad Shalit has “never” been visited by  the Red Cross or any international aid agency. Indeed, the only sign of life has been a single video which was only released after Israel “paid a price”.

When  the highly publicized  “Humanitarian Flotilla for Gaza”   attempted to break through to Gaza they refused a simple request  made by Mr. Shalit  to accept a letter to be delivered to his son. If they were really “Humanitarians”  as they claim, Why would they Refuse this  “humanitarian” request?

Meanwhile, Hamas and PA areas have Graffiti picturing the suffering boy as an aged man; posted this video showing the suffering of the father trying to free his son–with the end showing a coffin being unloaded in front of Mr. Shalit. Even more insidious is another  video clip giving the impression of Gilad’s  Execution. They use these emotional ploys for their own evil designs.  They are asking for the release of thousands of murderous terrorists to an area where they would be free to kill again. What country would accept such terms?

Regardless of whether one loves or hates Israel, what is being done to Gilad is cruel and inhuman. And yet, money and supplies go into Gaza daily, people all over the world demonize Israel and hold up the flags of Hamas and the PA–the new “cause”.

By turning our backs on this abomination we are no better than the terrorists who are behind this madness–one day we will  all have to face The Creator to answer for our omissions as well as commissions.

Speaking the Truth about Jerusalem & Islam

I have watched this video many times. It reminds me of a passage: Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not…Jeremiah 5:21. Indeed, this is an exact description of the enemies of Israel, and Dr. Kedar exposes the lies in their own language!

Dr. Mordechai Kedar (PhD Bar-Ilan U) Served for 25 years in IDF Military Intelligence specializing in Arab political discourse, Arab mass media, Islamic groups and the Syrian domestic arena. A lecturer in Arabic at Bar-Ilan University, he is also an expert on Israeli Arabs.
We need more people like Dr. Kedar to speak up for the truth, but we also need the blinders to be removed and the wool taken from the ears so all can see and hear!

October 12th—A Day of Infamy

The following article was written by Professor Phyllis Chesler–Please read the entire post .
Palestinians Celebrate SpillingJewish Blood
Do you remember where you were ten years ago on October 12th? That was the day that al-Qaeda bombed the USS Cole in Yemen. Seventeen sailors died in the attack.
But also on the very same day–two Israeli reservists, Vadim Norzich z”l, and Josef Avrahami, z”l, were lynched in the most barbaric fashion when they lost their way in Ramallah, which was the late Yasir Arafat’s headquarters.
I will never forget that day. That was the precise moment–and it preceded 9/11 by eleven months–that I knew, really knew, that the bloody beast was back, that we had entered an era of unending bloodshed. Over and over again, the footage was shown of the murderers who tortured, mutilated, and disemboweled the two Israelis, smiling like madmen, proudly displaying their hands smeared with Jewish blood. And how the Palestinian crowds cheered for them.
I watched them all, dancing in the blood of my people, partying like ghouls. No broadcaster, no well coiffed Talking Head drew back in horror. They showed these scenes but did not condemn them. International human rights activists and intellectuals remained silent, as did the entire United Nations.
Please read the entire article. If you are bold enough view the videos and pictures that are posted at the links below. After ten years things have only become worse. Why? Pray for God to put the answer in your heart. WWII gained momentum because good people were silent. The evil that was born in those years is rising again. The difference is the hatred is no longer confined to central Europe, it has spread worldwide and the devils minions are among us all–everywhere. We must not be silent. We must not forget. Never Again!

Miracle in Chile

Picture from AP
We just have to consider it a Miracle from God that the miners are emerging from the bowels of the earth and are able to walk and embrace their family members! They look good! The Live feed provided by the Telegraph brings the whole drama to life. I should note I do not have TV which most of you out there probably have!
