    Hah! Mojomohammed-Man makes a funny! You see, the Jews (as in Judea) were indeed thrown out of their houses and forced to live in walled-off ghettos in the diaspora for 2000 years. But, and here is the punchline, the Jews never once took to terrorism against the people around them, and did, largely, remain pious, gentle and intelligent. ROTFLMAO!!!!

    Most of the laws of Torah (including the Talmud, the Oral law) applied only within th Land of Israel. Upon the beginning of the latest exile (70 A.D.), the rabbis declared that all laws not connected with the land and with the Temple (which had been destroyed) should still be observed by Jews in the diaspora, so as to maintain their accurate practice in preparation for the return to Zion. Now that the return is underway, the laws that apply specificially to the land of Israel are once again being practiced, praise the Lord.

    It doesn’t matter, runwithscissors. The allied forces defeated the Ottoman Turks in WWI, and therefore had the right to determine what would become of territories formerly controlled by the Ottoman Turks, including Palestine. The British, in coordination with the League of Nations, approved the formation of a Jewish National Home in Palestine. For more, see zionism101.org

    vmcd: Before you spouting your nonsense about the Talmud, please review this web site:

    http://talmud.faithweb.com/

    Most Torah-observant Jews try to observe all of Jewish law, not just this one. Where do you get the idea that this is the only commandment being observed by religious Jews?

    As for your demand that Jews desert the faith of their fathers because gentiles believe that they will burn in hell if they don’t, I am sure many faithful Jews would rather bet on God and His perfect Torah than vmcd’s scare tactics.

    Once again, Herr Nilsson feels it necessary to chime in on something he knows absolutely nothing about. Israel is not a theocracy. There are many Israelis who take Jewish law seriously, like this farm cooperative (that’s the origin of the term kibbutz). They will also take the next Yuval (Jubilee) year seriously, as they take all of Jewish law seriously. And these are the Israeli Jews who accept that all of Torah, including the Talmud (oral law) was revealed at Mt. Sinai. Without the Talmud, the Torah is incomprehensible, just like Herr Nilsson’s posts.

    Or, the Torah just might be the word of the God of Israel as revealed to Moses at Sinai. Just sayin’.

    DrAwake: First of all, you cannot ignore the Talmudic scholars who arrived at these conclusions based on centuries of Jewish law and tradition. To claim that you know more about Torah law than they do is the hieght of hubris. Second, you need to put down your copy of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion – it was a forgery. In America, about 20% of Jews are Torah observant. I believe the percentage is similar in Israel. Perfection may be unobtainable, but we are not free to give up trying. You can start by letting go of some of your anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

    You are correct, searching, and this is one of the hot-button issues in Israeli politics. There is some disagreement regarding lending with interest depending on who is borrowing and why. If a poor person is borrowing for his basic needs, there is no question that interest is forbidden (hence, the many free-loan socities in Jewish communities). But when money is borrowed for optional uses – a business expansion, a vacation home, investments, etc., Jewish law is less clear. There are politicians in Israel who wish to see Israeli banking follow the Jewish model rather than the British model they now follow. Things are moving dramatically to the right in Israel. Stay tuned.

    Rocky – Not a bad question, but think about it. Just because you don’t plant new seeds or fruit trees does not mean there will be no yield from these untended fields. In fact, there will be quite a bit of produce. The farmers do prepare for it, as the article shows, mostly by transferring ownership in a repurchase agreement with a gentile farmer.

    When Menachem Begin was asked if he favored either side of the Iran-Iraq war of the 70s and 80s, he replied: “I wish both sides every success.”

    You have no idea what you’re talking about, NILAP.

    Oh, dear. Another “non-Islamic” Islamic terror army that wants to kill Americans. No worries. The moderate Muslims will soon destroy the Korozine Group, ISIL/ISIS (you know, the “non-Islamic ISLAMIC State”), and all those other misunderstanders of that great religion of (body) pieces.

    Your raging hatred is only exceeded by your ignorance, zac1. As soon as the Jews realized that Muhammed was a false prophet who was trying to turn the Jews away from the Torah, they rejected him completely, and paid with their lives and the lives of their families. I don’t think he is coming back, but if he does, I can’t imagine that that particular Jew will be very happy to see you.

  • [3] September 23, 2014 at 1:33pm

    What a stupid comment. There is nothing about Israeli actions that passes the smell test of “genocide”. Genocide implies intent to kill civilians, and only the Muslims, anti-Semites and Leftists accept the lie that Israel is trying to kill non-combatants. Which one are you, lokis?

  • [2] September 23, 2014 at 1:30pm

    No agreement can alter the fact that the Land of Israel is the ancestral homeland of the Jewish nation. As I pointed out above, the Arabs contributed very little to the defeat of the Ottoman Turks, and their reward was all out of proportion to their contributions anyway. And there are other agreements and documents that formed the Middle East after WWI, like the Balfour Declaration. And since when does any government keep all of its promises? I thought I was gonna get to keep my doctor, too!

    Guys like you just don’t get it. Only Islam calls for the subjugation of the entire world and everyone in it at the point of sword. Judaism does not, Christianity does not, Hinduism does not, etc., etc. It’s not religion that causes wars, it is Islam, and Islam alone among all the world’s religions that requires, in its sacred texts, holy war against unbelievers.

    Umm, it would have been hard for stateless Jews, who had been disarmed previously, to fight the Nazis, jr23. When they did, it looked like the Warsaw ghetto uprising. Symbolic and heroic, but inneffective. That’s one reason it is important for the Jewish nation to have a homeland, army and elected leaders.

    I don’t hate Jesus, the man, even if I don’t agree that he was the Son of God. And I am about as unworried about that as is possible. I hold fast to God’s Torah and all that was revealed to my ancestors at Sinai. What I would worry about, if I were zac1, is what the reward or punishment might be for damning other people, especially people of faith. “Judge not, lest you be judged”.

    Beck is wrong about the end of the Ottoman Turkish Empire. It was destroyed because it declared war on the allies in WWI, and lost. While the Arabs may have been made promises in bad faith, they did little to hasten the allied victory over the Turks. Typically, allied forces (including the Jewish Legion) would secure a military victory in battle, and then the British would allow these Arabs to ride in at the end and claim victory. And when the allies won, they won the right to determine the map of the conquered Ottoman provinces. The caliphate was abolished in turkey by Attaturk a few years after the war.

    And if there really was a secret agreement between Trans-Jordan and Israel regarding the West Bank, Beck will have to cite sources. That would be a whopper. There is documentation that proves that Israel could have captured all of Jerusalem in the War of Independence, but made the political decision to retreat (the military advantage was the Israeli forces holding a Muslim minaret with a commanding view of the city, and the leaders of the new state felt that was too sensitive to hold. They retreated and soon lost control of Jerusalem).

    But in this region especially, military wins and losses determine who gets to live where. To date, Western forces remain victorious. Whether they have the ability and/or the will to continue to overpower the forces of the Jihadists remains to be seen. But rest assured, the Jihadists won’t stop if they achieve their regional goals.

    In case you didn’t comprehend the messages here: The uniformed men represent the military government of President Al-Sisi. He is the relatively secular, pro-Western leader that could be a good friend to the U.S., if Obama would let him. These military men are used to display the suposed cruelty of the Al-Sisi regime in Egypt. In fact, Al-Sisi sees the Muslim Brotherhood for the threat that it is, and has arrested its leaders, executing some. These marchers are pro-Muslim Brotherhood. The thumbs up from the marchers in the Kerry, Obama and McCain masks indicate that these marchers are greatful for the support of our government for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (and elsewhere). Our government has switched sides: We now support the Muslim Brotherhood (and its subsidiaries like Hamas) everywhere we can. These marchers prove that this support of the Muslim Brotherhood is acknowledged by the U.S. Muslim community. Why did we switch sides?
