Rosh Hashana Dvar Torah
A large portion of our Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur prayers express our yearning for Eretz Yisrael and the final redemption. During Musaf of Rosh Hashana, we say “Our G-d and G-d of our fathers, sound the great shofar for our freedom”. The term “great shofar” comes from a verse in Yeshaya (Isaiah), “It shall be on that day, a great shofar will be blown and those lost...

I just have to say that when it comes to left-wing zionists, I really don’t understand them. Why do you believe in land for peace? it’s proven not to work? Personally, i don’t believe in making Jews and Israel look like the bad guys by acting as if we’ve done something wrong. And imposing settlement freezes and disengagements make us look like we are guilty. There is no...

lailatov: Reading some posts from left-wingers and their views about other types of Zionists… For my views as a right-wing Zionist, I have been called hateful, racist, fascist, and stupid. Apparently Revisionist/Neo-Zionists are the “worst” of us all. And I can understand why people think this - because…

This Shabbos was the day the world was created. Rosh Hashanah is soon upon us. Prepare yourselves.
(via Walkout at U.N. as Ahmadinejad speaks - CNN.com)
This weeks parsha is a double parsha. Nitzavim and Vayelech. In Nitzavim, it says: ושב ה’ אלקיך את שבותך ורחמך ושב ןקבצך מכל העמים אשר הפיצך ה’ אלקיך שמה. אם יהיה נדחך בקצה השמים משם יקבצך ה’ אלקיך ומשם יקחך. והביאך ה’ אלקיך אל הארץ אשר ירשו אבתיך וירשתה והיטבך והרבך מאבתיך. The Lord your G-d will return your captivity and have mercy on you, and he will return and gather...

PA terrorists resume rocket attacks
dalsibaby: Rockets from PA terrorists based in Gaza rain down on the southern Israel. Further north, PA Arab rioters blocked the Cross-Binyamin Highway near Neve Tzuf. The rioters hurled rocks and clashed violently with IDF soldiers who were sent to the scene. Neve Tzuf is Jewish village dating back to the times of the Talmud. Wow, it really seems like they want peace.

dalsibaby: Last year, a topic for debate given to Cambridge students was ‘Israel is a rogue state’. On the affirmative team, two speakers chose to present the common anti-Israel, anti-Zionist argument. However, one law student on the affirmative team, presented a compelling speech as to why Israel is a…
We must always believe that what G-d does is for the best. We may not understand it because we are only limited in our thinking. Compare it to a child who sees an operating theatre. It looks to him like a terrible situation. Someone is being cut up and there’s blood and people with knives all over the place. He doesn’t understand that a life is being saved because he is only a child.

Parshas Ki Tavo
The first verse in this weeks parsha mentions: והיה כי תבוא אל הארץ אשר ה’ אלהיך נתן לך נחלה וירשתה וישבת בה. It shall be when you enter the land that the Lord your G-d gives you as an inheritance and you possess it and dwell in it. (26:1) The Sifrei comments that this will be your reward if you practise the mitzvah mentioned in this context (bikurim). The Chasam Sofer comments,...

This weeks Dvar Torah, is dedicated to Leah Bat Shmuel. May her neshama have an aliyah. It says in this weeks parsha: לא תסגיר עבד אל אדניו אשר ינצל אליך מעם אדניו.עמך ישב בקרבך במקום אשר יבחר באחד שעריך בטוב לו לא תוננו. You shall not hand over to his master a servant who is escaped from his master to you. He shall dwell with you in your midst, in the place that he will choose in one of your...
I don’t think some people actually understand what anti-semitism means. The word was coined in Germany in 1879 by Wilhelm Marr to refer to the hatred of Jews. It was only made to be a more scientific sounding name than Jew hating. Therefore, Arabs can indeed be anti-semitic and to claim that they can’t is to ignore the reality of Arab discrimination towards Jews. Furthermore, I...

somebody reblogged my post about Hamas and wrote something about how vulgar I was. I just want to make it clear that Hamas is a terrorist organisation and I do not have any sympathy for the people involved in it. Yes, i do believe it should be destroyed and i will not apologise for it. If that makes me such a horrible person, so be it.

I was just looking through the zionist tags and i came across a huge amount of hate and lies. To you anti-zionists, you think you have any idea about what is happening in the middle east. You don’t! If for 2000 years, you were exiled from your home and treated like a sub-human creature, would you have the patience to sit down and just wait to return? And if you finally returned to your home,...
