Robert De Niro and Nobu in Israel..uh Huh

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

De Niro investing in Israel. Booyah!
New Japanese-style hotel, restaurant by Hollywood actor, Robert De Niro,- partners to open within two years.

LONDON – In a lavish event held last Thursday at the Nobu sushi restaurant in London, the Nobu Group partners announced the establishment of a new hotel in Herzliya for an investment of NIS 600 million (approximately $178 million.)
De Niro in Herzliya

Both partner Robert De Niro and his son Raphael..Also joining the event were Paris Hilton and her beau.

The hotel will open its gates within two years and will feature 225 rooms. According to Sales Director, Sigal Ben-Moshe, all rooms will be available for purchase from $600,000 for a studio to $1.7 million for a penthouse.

Nobu, is a world reknown chef, who has established restaurants in hotels in Greece, Hong Kong and the Gramercy Park Hotel. He has two New York City restaurants: on West 57th Street and on Hudson Street.

Analyze That! heh

A $178 million Japanese style hotel in Herzeliya with the “Raging Bull’s” financial backing? Heck yea.

Apparently, Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro has a new act in town. Well, not this town.
The restaurant in the hotel is planning to open in Herzliya, right on the Mediterranean– Israel’s own “Riviera.”

Inside Nobu, large foam mats shaped like Japanese slippers adorn toffee-colored walls, absorbing the bustle of chefs and waiters.
The lowdown on Nobu
Patrons in satin tops, khakis and deep blue business suits mingle in the compact space near a ring of tables, most reserved a month in advance.

Meals at Nobu begin with a soft-spoken waiter asking your likes and dislikes, guiding you through an extensive menu that doesn’t list appetizers and entrees because servers here recommend ordering omakase, a tasting menu that costs either $100 or $125, or more if arranged with the chef. The meal features six to seven smaller plates designed around the diner’s preferences

I’m on board. Anyone hungry?

Imagine any Hollywood actor, who are notably usually to the left of good ole Joe Stalin -taking a stand for Israel or against Muzlim terrorism.

Other “stars” who are pro Israel and thus: Pro Liberty:

NICOLE Kidman has made a public stand against terrorism.
Kidman (and others in Hollywood) Condemns Hamas, Hezbollah

The actress, joined by 84 other high-profile Hollywood stars, directors, studio bosses and media moguls, has taken out a powerfully-worded full page advertisement in today’s Los Angeles Times newspaper.

It specifically targets “terrorist organisations” such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine.

“We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organisations such as Hezbollah and Hamas,” the ad reads.

“If we do not succeed in stopping terrorism around the world, chaos will rule and innocent people will continue to die.
“We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorism at all costs.”

A who’s who of Hollywood heavyweights joined Kidman on the ad.

The actors listed included: Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Don Johnson, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Patricia Heaton and William Hurt.

Mel Gibson was unavailable for comment. Ha.

Somali Muzlims Whinefest Time

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

A group of Mu-slim workers allege they were fired by a New Brighton tortilla factory for refusing to wear uniforms that they say were immodest by Is-lamic standards.

Six Somali women claim they were ordered by a manager to wear pants and shirts to work instead of their traditional Is-lamic clothing of loose-fitting skirts and scarves, according to the Council on Amer-ican-Is-lamic Relations (CA-IR), a civil liberties group that is representing the women.

Muslim women say New Brighton company’s dress code violates faith
The women have filed a religious discrimination complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Ah yes.

Aint divesity just grand?

Anyone find out if these ahem..”immigrants” are even legal?
Silly me. Minor detail.
I know. Let’s plan a field trip to a Muzlim country and file a similair law suit.

Ironic, isn’t it- that we allow these so called cultures to shove their oppressive ways down our throats.
Yet America is the one accused by the world court of arrogance.

Psssttt. Industry standards -including employment regulations are for everyone.
As in “everyone.”

Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Agnostic, Amish and oh yes….even the holier than thou Muzlims. It’s called the condition of your employment.

Don’t like it?
Go drive a cab in Saudi Arabia.
Oops my bad. Women aren’t allowed to drive there at all.

Oh, but to heck with safety too right?
Or maybe CA-IR, the terrorist org. wants their women to work around machines and wear loose fitting clothes. This way when they get severely injured, -they can sue the company for that too.

Maybe someone ought to clue in the whiney, demanding Muzlims that people from all over the globe come to our shores for 2 things: Freedom and Opportunity. You have unending opportunitiy to work and become successful , and the freedom to bloody quit if you don’t feel like abiding by your employer’s dress code or rules.

Planning a vacation this year?
How bout Somalia

Somalia has not had a functioning national government for 14 years.
The lives of Somalis continue to be blighted by a “catastrophic” level of daily violence and “brutality”, says a report by a medical charity.

Most of the victims are women and children.
MSF says that Somalia has one of the worst rates of child mortality in the world.

They should be kissing the ground in New Brighton or anywhere else in America.

How many ways can you say audacity?


Obama in Somali garb…how um..appropriate, no?

Oh and let us not forget this charming event.

Somali cleric calls for pope’s death

A HARDLINE cleric linked to Somalia’s powerful Islamist movement has called for Mus-lims to “hunt down” and kill Pope Benedict XVI for his controversial comments about Isl-am.

Better yet, why don’t all those defending these Somalis adopt some of their beloved customs?
Starting with THIS

The most common form of female genital mutilation (FGM) or female genital cutting (FGC) practiced in Somalia is Type III (commonly referred to as infibulation and in Somalia, the “Pharaonic circumcision”).

Eighty percent of all genital procedures for women and girls consist of this form which is the most harmful form. The less radical or Type I (commonly referred to as clitoridectomy and in Somalia sometimes called “sunna”) is practiced mainly in the coastal towns of Mogadishu, Brava, Merca and Kismayu.

The procedures leave a lifetime of physical suffering for the women.
Virtually all Somali women are subjected to one of these procedures. A recent estimate by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) places the percentage of the women in Somalia who have undergone this procedure at 90 percent.

There are several other rationales expressed for the practice in Somalia. Some men claim the artificial tightness heightens se-xual enjoyment. Some say the smoothness of the scar is esthetically beautiful.

Indeed. I suggest all the loud mouth female lib Izlam apologists line up for that multi culti lil Somali “custom” eh.

Somali Muzlims making demands in America.

Talk about your ingrates.

Is it politically correct to puke now?

On ShootinG Ko-rans or other “Holy” BookS

Monday, May 26th, 2008

Sunni preachers on Friday denounced the shooting of a K-oran, Islam’s holy book, by a U.S. sniper in Iraq despite a series of apologies by American commanders and U.S. President George W. Bush.
Sunni Preachers Denounce Koran Shooting by U.S. Sniper in Iraq

The U.S. military said Sunday it had disciplined the sniper and removed him from Iraq after he was found to have used the Koran for target practice May 9.

Bush apologized to Iraqi Prime Minister No-uri al-M-aliki for the incident after several U.S. military officials tried to soothe anger over the shooting..

So, clarify this for me again please……flagday.gif…. an American soldier fires on an inanimate object, while jeeehadis blow up precious children, slit the throats of their daughters, use the mentally ill as suicide bombers..and our President apologizes for this?

Since when is shooting a book a crime under Military Law that requires political intervention from the higher ups?

Civilized people do not make a habit of condoning the desecration of Holy Books, and this is where we part company with those defending the Ko–ran.
If the Ko–ran is to be seen as holy and respect worthy, it may be time to watch “Fitna” again or read it for yourselves.

Ko—ran 4:89:
“They (infidels) desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.”

Ko–ran 8:12:
“Instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers;”

Ko–ran 2:191:
“… kill the disbelievers wherever we find them..”

If a so called religion based on world conquest, originating with one man’s maniacal quest for world domination and spread by the Sword and imperialism, is to be acknowledged and respected with the World Religions, we best be bowing our heads and waiting for that same Sword to slice off our ignoble infidels’ semi working brains.

The fact that Mein Kampf, (another popular book among Muzlims,) was secular but the Ko-ran is allegedly religious – makes the war against Izlam that much more untenable. We are asked to accept a virulently anti semitic, anti Christian ideology as somehow not only respectable but compatible with ours?

Similarities between Mein Kampf and the Ko–ran? You bet. They are for the most part political books and both contain justifications for violence and murder against all “non-believers.” (psssttt..especially Jews)

The hypocrisy of the Liberal left is predictably outstanding.

If some dude decided to use the Bible as a shooting target in America, the Mainstream media would not even report on it…unless they were celebrating it as a form of “Art”, and calling the NEA for more funding.

Crosses soaked in urine, the Virgin Mary in feces?..No problem.
A soldier taking shots at a book filled with hatred and inciting of violence against people of other Faiths, a self proclaimed “holy” book which advocates enslaving and killing those who disagree?

Ah yes ..that warrants genuflection and a formal apology by the Military General and the President of the United States of America.

Of course in Muzlim theocracies, this action is considered blasphemy.
Why, you ask?..Oh, because in Muzlim countries there is no freedom; there is no separation between church, mosque and state.

Izlam is hence not a religion but a form of political government, imposed upon its people.There is no converting out of Izlam while keeping ones head attached to one’s shoulders.

We bear witness to one of our Generals not only apologize but kiss a Ko–ran?

Howzabout all the moderate Muzlims get together, call for a ceremony in which they all kiss a perfectly folded triangle shaped U.S. Flag and then proceed to hand it all the victims of Muzlim massacres in an honoree kind of way.

We’ll apologize the day the Muzlim clergy and laypeople do — for everything their “peaceful people” have done including the desecration of the Bible, which took place when their stinkin terrorists occupied the Church of the Nativity. They used Christian holy texts as toilet paper, and destroyed the interior of the Church.

Seen any pics of Muzlims kissin Bibles?
I didn’t think so.

Muzlims burn and trample on American flags daily around the globe in protest of anything they feel like crying foul over.
Anyone “offended” by that?
sorryani.gif

All religions have their fanatics and abusers. However, true religions condemn and shun those people, considering that it is almost always a small percentage of that particular faith.
Izlam has well earned universal scorn and contempt for precisely NOT doing that.

There are no Moderates collectively raising their voices against what is supposedly “radical” Izlam, nor against terrorist acts any where in the world.

Studies bear out that even among so called moderates, support for terrorism especially against Israel is nearly universal amongst Muzlims.

This ideology masquerading as a “religion” appears to be in a perpetual state of sanctimoniousness and warlike belligerence.angry08.gif

The offendedness disease-like epidemic is rampant.
The Muuham-MAD cartoon debacle is typical and emblematic for Izlam.

Izlam chooses to alienate itself from the rest of the civilized world. That makes it THEIR problem, not ours.

I submit we ought to be alot less concerned with what Muzlims or Lefty self haters think or feel.
If you lived in Saudi Arabia, you couldn’t even own a Bible, (let alone try to shoot one), attend a church or synagogue, or even become a citizen.

A woman is not even allowed to drive, vote or leave her house without male permiso.

That we should be coerced into having such “tender” feelings for people who have attacked us on our own soil, who have declared War on us and think nothing of attacking our uniformed soldiers from cars using babies as human-shields is not only mad, it is suicidal.

Some go so far as to say the soldier should be punished…yea… for wasting bullets. Heh. arrowthruhead9.gif

I may not go that far.
It certainly constitutes no crime.
Soldiers do have an obligation to obey foreign laws to some extent. Needless to say they do not have the freedom of speech or of self expression that we do in the U.S.

Indeed, it may be counterproductive to offend the Iraqis while we are trying to establish a societal order for them at this time.
But apologizing and kissing a Ko-ran? Wayyyyyyyy over the top.

Then again, the soldier really did mess up. What he should have done was shoot holes in the Bible. Instead of being reviled, he could have become nothing short of a hero for the secular “progressive”, lefty liberal gang. smirk.gif

Calling the Ko-ran a ‘holy book’? ponder.gif

Beware dear friends:

“He that saith unto the wicked, Thou are righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him.”

Illegal “Criminals” not Undocumented “Workers”

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

In 1965, thanks largely to Sen. Ted Kennedy; an immigration act was passed that opened the United States to third world poverty and third world social norms. Instead of our laws focusing on immigrants who are good for America, (that is: immigrants who have a skill or expertise to add to the American melting pot), America began focusing on what America can do for the immigrant.

Reaping The Whirlwind

Today for the first time in American history, America has more illegal aliens coming to this country than legal aliens.

They are not coming to add to or strengthen U.S. society, but to take advantage of the hospitality and the fruits of hard work by the American middle class.

The world community has come to regard America as an “International Park” where other nations, (particularly Mexico) can dump its hopeless, diseased, insane, criminal, uneducated and undesirable people.

The Bolshevik revolution was brought about by less than 1% of the population while 99% of the people stood by and watched. What are you doing? Will you sit by and watch while we turn into a huge global “International Park”?

Know THE LAW my dear friends.
Knowledge is power.

Title 8:
Section 1325. Improper entry by alien
(a) Improper time or place; avoidance of examination or inspection;
misrepresentation and concealment of facts

Any alien who (1) enters or attempts to enter the United States
at any time or place other than as designated by immigration
officers
,
or (2) eludes examination or inspection by immigration
officers,
or (3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United
States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the
willful concealment of a material fact, shall, for the first
commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18 or
imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both, and, for a subsequent
commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18, or
imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both.

(b) Improper time or place; civil penalties
Any alien who is apprehended while entering (or attempting to
enter) the United States at a time or place other than as
designated by immigration officers shall be subject to a civil
penalty of -
(1) at least $50 and not more than $250 for each such entry (or
attempted entry); or
(2) twice the amount specified in paragraph (1) in the case of
an alien who has been previously subject to a civil penalty under
this subsection.

Civil penalties under this subsection are in addition to, and not
in lieu of, any criminal or other civil penalties that may be
imposed.
(c) Marriage fraud
Any individual who knowingly enters into a marriage for the
purpose of evading any provision of the immigration laws shall be
imprisoned for not more than 5 years, or fined not more than
$250,000, or both.

(d) Immigration-related entrepreneurship fraud
Any individual who knowingly establishes a commercial enterprise
for the purpose of evading any provision of the immigration laws
shall be imprisoned for not more than 5 years, fined in accordance
with title 18, or both.

There you have it.
What part of LAW do the folks up in Washington and the lefty do-gooders fail to comprehend?

Find Law

These are the faces:

Notice their “message.”

Note the “language” it’s in:

Here’s OUR “message”.

Any Questions?

NEWTON, Mass. (AP) — Pulitzer Prize winning author David McCullough has a suggestion for what young people can do for their country.

“Please, please do what you can to cure the verbal virus that seems increasingly rampant among your generation,” McCullough implored Boston College’s class of 2008 at commencement ceremonies Monday.
David McCullough urges BC grads to speak properly

He said he’s particularly troubled by the “relentless, wearisome use of words” such as like, awesome and actually.

“Just imagine if in his inaugural address John F. Kennedy had said, ‘Ask not what your country can, you know, do for you, but what you can, like, do for your country actually,” he said.

Graduates apparently thought his speech was, like, awesome. They gave him a standing ovation.

Like WoW!

Every language has a unique set of rules which specifies how words are formed, how they are combined, and even how they are interpreted.
And even though most of us can’t state the rules, this doesn’t mean we don’t know them.

The rules are used in everyday conversation which provides a ready-made environment for language learning even in children.

In all societies children attain, even without formal training,– the rules for comprehending and forming sets of sentences simply by observing how adults around them communicate.

But ya wouldn’t know it, if you listen to ‘kids nowadays’ like ya know what I mean?dunce9.gif

Yo Wassup Dawg?

That’s Hot.

Whatever~!

For your pleasure guyz n dollz, I’ve made a lis..aka “list” of words that I think need to be ceremoniously tossed into the garbage compactor: trash1ani.gif

Let’s start with:
“Undocumented Workers”. Uh huh. Whoever came up with that beaut!

Other verbal crutches that just gotta go. dontcareani.gif
-“Totally”

-“You know what I’m sayin’?” better known as “knowhadahmsayn?”

-Foshizzle.
-Playah, player

rap-player.gif

-What you lookin’ at foo?

-“My bad”

Fuhgeddaboutit!

Come to think of it…Lately the word “Change”… makes me wanna hit the mute button too…if ya “knowhadahmsayn”.

Have any of your own to add to da list? thinkani-uddy.gif

A’ight

Do ya feel me?

Exercise Without Knowin It ..KewL

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

I know. I know. Not everyone luvvvvvvvvvs exercise like moi.excercise.gif
Soooooooo here are some ways to burn those calories without even realizin yar.

Exercise Without Knowin It eh?

Some sneaky tips. Heh.excerciseani.gif

Get Wet
1. Wash your car.
Embrace the summer heat—with a hose: Burn calories and make your car look beautiful as you wash, dry and get it (and you) buff.
How to Exercise Without Even Knowing It

Get Dirty
2. Do your own yard work. Tell the teenage kid from down the street that you’ll mow your own lawn—and pay him to make some iced tea instead. While you’re at it, weed the vegetable garden and toss some new mulch around the perennials out front.

Take a Break
3. Reinstate the “water cooler.” Everyone needs a periodic work break, but instead of e-mailing witty quips to your buddy in the next office, walk to the water cooler to dish about the dude who got kicked off Project Runway last night.

Get Busy
4. Get started on that home-improvement project. Painting, hammering, hoisting—it’s all exercise (some of it moderate to vigorous, we’d say). And don’t discount all the walking that you’ll do as you wander around the big home-improvement warehouse looking for that specific hinge (or someone who can help you find it).

Take a Walk
5. Dog sit. For a puppy, ideally. You won’t be able to sit on the couch for long—unless you don’t care about your carpet—or your shoes.

Picnic
6. Eat al fresco. Pack a picnic—one that requires schlepping a big ice-filled cooler across a field or a park. Bring a ball or a Frisbee for after-eating activities.

Sooooooooo, couch taters, which one did ya choose?

Whaddya mean ya didn’t choose? Pick one. Pick one.excerciseani-buddy.gif

O.K……….Washing your car are ya?

Eliminate THIS method first k?

And THIS one:

-Gitcher yerself need a steady supply of water, a good ole dirt-free cloth, and a proper car wash soap. No Dove. No scented body splash.

-Wash from the top down to reduce the chance of scratching that lovely finish.
-None of that harsh rubbing which is only going to grind dirt right into the finish, leaving scratches everywhere. Tsk tsk.dunce9.gif

-Finally………Be generous with the rinse water to carry away all that nasty dirt.

How’s that comin from someone who never washed a car in her life? ha.

Yard work anyone?
Sorry, can’t help ya much there, me bein a tried and true City Girl.

This is when we dial 1-800-Gardener- Plz- help. Ha.

Home Improvement
Uh huh.


Where’s my contractor?!

Water Cooler Break


Oh. I’m down with that.

But ya gotta actually walk to the water cooler k. Faster dude.

And um………Don’t take the candy bar witcha.
candy.gif

Walkin the dog to burn calories?

That’s right. Choose a fast puppy.

Psssssssssst. THIS doesn’t count dude.

Or..THIS..ya wise guy. (and you know who you are)

Picnic eh?

Now, if ya choose this one, ya best be nibblin on veggies and tossin that frisbee not scarfin down fried chicken and napping k? cake.gif

Alright now……….Who’s got ‘clean up’?

Now, don’t ya feel sooooooooo much better?

O.K. O.K. O.K. sheesh…, g’head..Eat somethin. eat-smile.gif

FDNY: Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance

Monday, May 19th, 2008

Wall of Remembrance

All are cordially invited to celebrate “The Dedication Of The Tribute Wall” at Keyspan Park, 1904 Surf Ave., Coney Island, Sunday, 2 p.m.

The Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance will be rededicated with the names and portraits of all the heroic first responders from Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens and Staten Island on 9/11, joining the men and women of Brooklyn whose portraits already are there.

All 416 names of the first responders who died that day will be read, by 42 different people, each reading 10 names (the last person will read only six)…..

..readers will include donators/actors Jon Voight and Gary Sinise, departments chiefs, family members and others who helped build the wall. Sinise hosted a benefit concert last summer at Brooklyn College that raised $250,000, which helped expand the wall.

FDNY, NYPD, Port Authority and NYS Court Officers Bagpipers will entertain

—————————-

What a graceful and stunning tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice that day on September 11th.

Ask anyone who my favorite guys are.
FDNY: God’s Helpers.

I was humbly invited to attend.

The pouring rain, which began promptly at 10 minutes to 2; exactly 10 minutes before the opening ceremonies were due to begin— did nothing to dampen the spirits of family, loved ones, NYPD, FDNY or me.

Raindrops profoundly shimmering in puddles all around us.

The angels are weeping, I mused.
So many lost.

Tributes were lovingly offered.
Gary Sinise and Jon Voight added fresh inspiration.

A sea of Firemen and Policemen.
Their hair cut square, eyes alert,
So very young, so tall, so proud.

Lost friends, brothers, fathers…………

How often does “Taps” remind them….

How many young lives interrupted,
Rendezvousing with death,

Days filled with danger,
Nights of waking.

The everyday heros who walk among us.

This glorious Wall of Remembrance gives family and dear loved ones a place to go, where the Lost are recognized and honored.
Wall of Remembrance

Imagine the unending despair of those families whose loved ones were never found. They come to the Wall, where the images themselves — speak.

For your ever present helping hands and hearts,
For the recovering, and returning, all the while reassuring us that.. all will be well.

For overcoming your fear,
for the unnoticed hardships you daily endure………….

Army Specialist James Fair: Enjoy your new HomE

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

Army Specialist James Fair was blinded and left without hands after a roadside bomb sent shrapnel through his body in Fallujah in November 2003.

Now, Fair has a new high-tech home to call his own in Ross Township.

Homes For Our Troops, Duquesne Light and volunteers worked for a year and a half to provide Fair with a renovated home that has the latest in cutting-edge technology.

Injured Soldier Receives High-Tech Home
The house has voice activation and proximity readers.

For example, Fair will be able to walk into a shower room and say “Start shower” and it will happen.
When he approaches a door, a censor will automatically recognize it’s him and activate the door to open and close.

James, We love and honor you and our military for so so many reasons.
Our troops, unlike so many “intentionally” blind, see a distinct line between good and evil.

Our soldiers view themselves, not as helpless victims, but rather as servants of this glorious Nation.

You are not allergic to hard work, self-discipline, and above all: personal responsibility.

Semper Fi James.
Thank you for the sacrifice you made……..for me. For us.
Be blessed in your new home. You deserve that and so much more.

Some of us do know that Freedom is not Free.

Here’s To all our soldiers who may have caught a bullet, trying to save a friend.
To those whose names are on a wall…….We have not forgotten thee.

To those in faraway lands who lie awake fighting loneliness, after signing up for yet another “tour”.

For the ones fighting the silent battles, with no limelight shinging upon their heroism.

To to the ones who march, fly, or sail.
Thank you for protecting our Freedom’s paradise.

Having been given the blessing of working with our Troops and families, I have set my eyes on just how they represent the backbone and fighting spirit of our blessed Nation.
I salute them with all the force and loyalty my heart can marshal.

Hooah! to all five military branches: The Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard on this Armed Forces Day.

Israel: World’s “HappiesT” Country

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

Envy surrounds no country on Earth like the state of Israel, and with good reason: by objective measures, Israel is the happiest nation on Earth at the 60th anniversary of its founding.
Why Israel is the world’s happiest country

It is one of the wealthiest, freest and best-educated; and it enjoys a higher life expectancy than Germany or the Netherlands.

But most remarkable is that Israelis appear to love life and hate death more than any other nation.

Israel is surrounded by neighbors willing to kill themselves in order to destroy it. “As much as you love life, we love death,” Muslim clerics teach; the same formula is found in a Palestinian textbook for second graders. Apart from the fact that the Arabs are among the least free, least educated, and (apart from the oil states) poorest peoples in the world, they also are the unhappiest, even in their wealthiest kingdoms.

It cannot be attributed to material conditions of life. Oil-rich Saudi Arabia ranks 171st on an international quality of life index, below Rwanda.

For one thing, Israelis are far more religious than American Jews. Two-thirds of Israelis believe in God, although only a quarter observe their religion strictly. Even Israelis averse to religion evince a different kind of secularism than we find in the secular West. They speak the language of the Bible and undergo 12 years of Bible studies in state elementary and secondary schools.

Faith in God’s enduring love for a people that believes it was summoned for his purposes out of a slave rabble must be part of the explanation.

If the Israelis are the happiest country on Earth, as the numbers indicate, it seems possible that they will do what is required to keep their country, despite the odds against them.

Israelis happy and loving Life?…You bet.

Despite this:

and this:

and this:

The haters taste no happiness; only bitterness from all the bullet showers.
Perceiving the “in-fidels” as fresh meat to be obliterated.
nothing but a force with which to be reckoned.
Fists of fury remain their only jury.

They know not true calmness, nor a life of self-determination.

According to Israeli Prime Minister Omelet, Israel’s survival would depend on offering the homicidal, civilian murdering Ar-abs a more “hopeful future” with their own political sovereignty, not to mention boosting their economic development….to afford them more kassam rockets.

Because as long as the filthy rich A-rab nations allow the Palis to remain stuck in Israel living in poverty and despair Israel will remain “at War”.
Nice equation eh.

Apparently enabling and assisting terrorists to achieve a viable, prosperous “State” is the goal of the ones they are attempting to demolish.

Kinna like givin CPR to someone whose got a knife stuck in your jugular.

Sorry, it doesn’t require a degree in International Politics to realize that trying to “pursue Peace” with self confessed killers is not only inane, dreadfully self defeating…but ultimately suicidal.

Izlam represents the most lethal strategic challenge to America, Europe, Israel and free Nations worldwide.

Ham-ASS, a baby killing terrorist organization of thugs won the most recent “Palestinian” national elections in a landslide.

Just a bit “telling”, wouldn’t ya say?

Think the haters can ever kill America’s or Israel’s spirit and joy in Living?
Think again.

Much to the chagrin of the rest of the world…. America and Israel are “Keepers of the Flame.”
The flame of Freedom.
The taste of Freedom that lets you fly,
that lets your very soul run free.

Content with the knowledge that we are not the tyrants nor the oppressors,
simply humble defenders.

We share the freedom to honor a loving, peaceful God in all His glory
for all Eternity.

It’s been said:
The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself. (Benjamin Franklin)
And indeed..we do.

The best vitamin to be a happy person is B1.
