Are We Two Really ?

I believe Bibi when he says he truly is worried for the continuation of Israel and the Jews.  The United States seems to be primarily about what the U.S. can get from Israel being in the sweet spot of the Middle East and having a democratic  nation in the area.

I feel a definite chill toward Israel…whether it is this administration , I don’t know,  but  the United States has never been as far from a friendship between these to countries… ever!

It seems presidents after WWII  seem to have understood the importance of a state for and led by Jews.  What is the problem in our government.  How can the top political MEN turn a cold shoulder, an insult really, to the prime minister of Israel?

If the statement ,,tearing apart the fabric” of the united states and Israel is true, this is a very bad sign indeed.  I understand Israel has……oooothers   as  pppaarrrtnerrs…   but the partner ship between the US and Israel I had thought had been that of almost, shall I say, blood brothers.

If the United States shows it will show a cold shoulder to Israel,  then where and who will be their brother in keeping.

Must we drum to death the holocaust and the horrid pictures of the bodies being thrown onto trucks or into mass graves….  or smaller spaces which called for the cutting off  the heads of the bodies to have room to squash the bodies into smaller spaces.

Must we drum the sights and sounds of what went on when Jews realized the showers were nothing but gigantic gassing rooms,  and then we see how they are taken and thrown into ovens to be cremated so that hopefully not even their bones would be evidence of Nazi crimes against humanity.

Must we show how men were sent to dig the ditch which they did not know would be their grave sites, on their knees and shot one by one in the back of their heads to fall into the graves they dug with their own hands.

For God’s sake, what does it take and how much time would it take for at the very least, Joe Biden to sit and listen to what the prime minister of a country made up in the beginning of those mentioned above,  a country told by the United States we would have their back.  This is a no brainer for the US to at the very LEAST be there, to listen to what the prime minister has to say and not give him a cold shoulder….

a cold shoulder from the US to Israel might tell a longer tale to the enemies of Israel and her people around the world.

I never quote from the bible and this might be the first time. (not exactly a quote)….  those who bless Israel will be blessed, those who don’t…. cover your heads  ……

I guess that wasn’t a quote from the bible…..  we could call it a quote from the bible written by myself, but it does say the same thing…..

God chose Israel because she was a small country but the one to carry the word of  God.  why else to win the impossible ?

U.S Woefully Under Represented

The Unity march in France had over 3 million people in one spot at one time.  Truly it was inspiring.

For Muslims to carry ‘Je suis Juif’ is an amazing feat.  In this vein, where in the world was John Kerry and, or Joe Biden.  Isn’t it the job of the Vice President to represent the United States in such important proceedings ?  At the very least I would have expected the Secretary of State, John Kerry to have been in Paris on such an important statement day.

I am somewhat disappointed at this under representation of our country.  I certainly would have been there had I the means to get there, which I am certain the Vice President or Secretary of State have at the ready.

Just a thought.

Hurtgen

Hurtgen

dan took a second off from watch to enjoy a cigarette.  It was pleasurable, one of the few pleasurable things  here, the other; mail call.  Ice crystals hung suspended in the air.  Green blackness loomed everywhere that dan glanced from inside the forest.  gloom seeped from every line.  pines nearly 100 feet tall wiped out the sky light since ancient times.  mist dripped from the tree boughs and a cover of snow matted the forest floor.

In the holy quiet of this hell, Dan prayed for his pregnant wife Carole and his unborn baby. he had to make it home there were no two ways about it. Dan’s stress was great.  So many times he lay pondering God’s direction for him that he landed in this hellish place.  Still he believed in God.  life was good in New York State for a young man of eighteen before the war broke.  Before the draft into the service.  before pearl harbor-and he and carole had just gotten married.

Dan was a handsome man who attracted people to him, and he had no trouble finding friends.  they found him and they were life long and loyal.

But now was the war, and the war roared forward.  the good think about the war was the American soldiers out numbered german soldiers 5:1.  the bad was most of the American to brass never wanted to bully up to the hard held line in the forest.  blindly when thee were a certain amount of American casualties recruits were sent in immediately.   they were trained well and at the ready, however, there was not one who had leadership  abilities.  they weren’t taught, they were only taught to fight.”  important…but.

the American air cover promised to the men never came.  food, dry clothing, ammunition even in clear weather American cover was impossible.  the men  in the forest were virtually invisible.  the tree canopy, so tightly weaved together became an inpentrable roof.  airplanes couldn’t see the forest floor for the tree tops.

The Germans rigged their shelling to detonate right at the point of the tree tops.  the debris and fire rained down as the pines caught fire from top to bottom. Ironically the best pace to stay safe from the german shelling was under a tree.  hug it, get as close to the trunk as you cold without entering the trunk itself.
