Cry Palestine, Stand Proud Israel
September 24, 2009
Our last Postcard, sent just before the dawn of the Jewish year 5770,
talks about healthcare in the USA, a system that is faulty and failing
due to the burden of bureaucrats and less-than-capable workforce,
enormous pressures of frivolous lawsuits and those who cannot afford to
see a doctor but visit the emergency rooms instead and the boundless
greed of pharmaceutical companies.
Other than the title ("A Hospital Visit”) and the name of the series
("Postcards from Israel – Postcards from America”), there was little
connection, if any, between the Postcard and Israel.
Once posted online, a Postcard assumes a life of its own, arriving at
strange yet fascinating destinations not intended and often unimagined.
I was quite surprised to see "A Hospital Visit” posted on "Palestine
Cry.” The name intrigued me, so I ventured a visit.
I was immediately greeted by the colors of the flag of the people who
were dancing in the streets of the "occupied land” on a fine Tuesday
morning eight years ago. They were celebrating the live broadcast of two
twin buildings collapsing in New York City, although later they would
call it a Zionist scheme and blame the Jews for its execution.
As the world came to a halt, from air traffic to financial systems, they
were in the streets having a field day. More recently, in demonstrations
here in Los Angeles, San Francisco and elsewhere, the same colors
adorned posters against the United States of America. In the name of
"free speech,” all is allowed: The President was called a "Murderer,”
those carrying the posters yearned for Sharia Law (here in the USA) and
red color was dripping from the flags they were about to desecrate.
So I read with amusement:
"The purpose of Palestine Cry is to expose the inutterably vile
onslaught by the NWO, led by the American neo Fascist-Russian
Communist-Chinese Communist: Triad, via their Zionist genocide committed
upon Palestine (the Naqba) and the whole Arab Homeland, especially Iraq,
and Afghanistan and Pakistan and every place else they foul with their
evil presence. We especially appreciate those individuals and sites that
have told the truth no matter what the opposition has been. God bless
you, and we know He has and will. Free Palestine and the whole Arab
homeland and the entire region.”
Most impressed I was with the definition of Greater Palestine, which for
some odd reason resounded the message of the Bible about the Land of the
Israelites, the Promise of G-d and His Covenant to His people.
If a Jewish person wrote the same, he would immediately have been
branded a "right wing extremist.” But here all is permitted in the name
of free speech, and the creation of the State of Israel is apparently
tantamount to the beginning of a genocide committed against humanity.
So as Palestine Cries, I could not have neglected to notice, again with
utter amazement, how "Lord Jesus Christ, Lord,” has been brought into
the plight of the people of Palestine – "the Holy Land and all of the
Fertile Crescent, especially Iraq, and all from Rabat to Islamabad.”
If only those who created and maintain the site realized that the number
of Christians (especially, but not only, practicing believers) has been
diminishing in an accelerated pace throughout Muslim lands. The
phenomenon is most evident in Bethlehem, birthplace of Christ, ever
since the Palestinian Authority took charge, and in Lebanon, where
Christians once constituted a majority. It remains to ask oneself why!
But the point is not accuracy or even factual historical information.
Mix every sound bite possible, including the Judeo-Christian God, and
accuse the Zionists of "Persecution” and "Genocide.” Conclude by saying
that "God gave the right to life, no man may take it away” and your
website will enjoy constant traffic of liberals, progressives and hoards
If anyone were permitted to ask a question, a highly unlikely
proposition, one should pose a single question like "so which
all-merciful god encourages his believers to go and blow themselves up
in crowded pizzerias, malls and discotheques?”
I thought for a second this is a new scheme to discredit those who
believe in God and who value life more than they value death. Then I
realized that the Postcard was taken from a progressive, liberal
central-site, and for some odd reason, no one bothered to read it,
assuming that like the majority of other articles there, "A Hospital
Visit” too is an anti-Israel, anti-Zionist, anti-Semite attack on the
Jews, thus a sure candidate for inclusion of this site.
May those who actually bother to read "A Hospital Visit” be driven to do
something good unto others. May they stop to think for a second, thus
possibly arriving at the far-reaching conclusion that the Big Satan and
the Small Devil are made of people like them who share similar concerns
and aspirations. An impossibility?
Hatred spread against the Jewish People and Israel does not stop there.
Nonsense and ignorance will target whatever is conveniently on their
way, so get ready – you do not need to be Jewish to be prepared. Protect
all that is dear to you, and you will soon realize that Israel is the
gatekeeper, standing firm at the entrance of the Free World, protecting
Western Society and our sanity for the benefit of all.
