Yesterday I used my other mailer software. Let me know if you did not get an email on Wendesday.
King Solomon says: "A soft reply turns away anger." (Proverbs 15:1)
Think of some incidents when you wisely used a soft reply. Now resolve to apply this in the future.
You may have been hurt by the love of your life, but remember, that you had good times and love and that people are only so strong. They say they will be with you forever, but they take care of themselves first. Happy last day of the calander year.
Love Yehuda Lave
5 Riddles to Solve
THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST LISTS OF RIDDLES I HAVE SEEN.
THE ANSWERS ARE AT THE BOTTOM.
RIDDLE 5 IS AMAZING.
IT SHARPENS SOME GENES IN YOUR BRAIN
AND STALLS ALZHEIMER'S FOR YEARS.
1.A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years.. Which room is safest for him?
- / -
2.A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for over 5 minutes. Finally, she hangs him. But5 minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?
- / -
3.What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away?
- / -
4.Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday?
- / -
5.This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!
THE ANSWERS TO ALL FIVE THE RIDDLES ARE BELOW:
1.The third room. Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead.
That one was easy, right?
2.The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband, developed it, and hung it up to dry (shot; held under water; and hung).
3.Charcoal, as it is used in barbecuing.
4.Sure you can name three consecutive days: yesterday, today, and tomorrow!
5.The letter "e," which is the most common letter used in the English language, does not appear once in the paragraph.
As they say, it's Dejavou all over again.
By Shalom Pollack
The same targets, the same cheerleaders heading the attacks and the same ones crawling under the covers lest they be demonized too.
First, it was the Inquisition after the Rabin murder in 1995.
I must say that the media and powers that be did quite a job then.
I was an uncompromising zealous critic of Rabin and all that he perpetrated since the Oslo perfidy. I realized then, that he and Peres were traitors to the Jewish people and to our land. Yet, even I, was so affected by the propaganda brainwashing that I considered paying my last respects to the man that brought Arafat into our homes and who killed holy Jews on the Irgun ship, Altalena.
I came to my senses after a while but I realize now the power that they wield over our minds.
I remember a veteran "settler" of Kiyat Arba, walking around with a big sign," I am ashamed"
A couple of days after the murder, I was in a shop with two young men I did not know. I over heard them criticizing Peres, the new prime minister. I took out my pad and pen and asked them, "what did you say?' Did I hear you correctly?"
They turned white and said ,No it was only a bad joke , I shouldn't take them seriously". I was amazed that my little test brought the results I though it might. They were not living in a democracy, Big brother was watching and they were terrified. 1984 was here.
The Rabin government shut down the only remaining voice of opposition to the blatant treachery. "Arutz Sheva radio was casting doubt in the minds of the public. Their key personalities were arrested. The opposition to the government and their odious lies was were eliminated
Israel experienced what Soviet citizens probably woke up to every morning - "Socialist Realism"
The second time was during the months, weeks, days, hours and minutes before the historic crime of Gush Katif. Again - "Socialist Realism"
It took just one corrupt and determined man wanting to stay out of jail to bring most of the country behind him in the senseless, cruel and suicidal expulsion of 2005.
They did not catch me in their web this time and I soberly and painfully witnessed the decent of a country accompanied by an orchestrated psychological /fear campaign that trounced Israeli law and basic civil rights in broad day light . Tens of thousands were just "following orders".
Thousands, particularly minors were beaten, arrested or detained - totally illegally. Israel 2005.
I recall , when Bush visited Israel eight years ago, the journalists were put up in the Dan Panorama hotel. A man stood outside with pamphlets containing information about the corruption and violence that is the Palestinian Authority. They call it freedom of speech I believe. Well it wasn't what he government had in mind. They wanted the lies to go unchallenged and the Bush "Road Map" to be bought.. Thus the man was dragged away by a plain clothes cop. Simple.
I wanted to enter the hotel as I was wearing a free Pollard sticker on my jacket. Problematic for the government. They did not want the journalists to ask questions about our friend the US and its cruelty to Jonathan that might tarnish the Bush visit . So I was very rudely expelled. Were my "rights" trampled that night as well?
Who knew. Who cared?
And now, once again in 2015. Israel is experiencing yet another phase of Arab terror. Arab men, women, boys and girls, are daily using what ever comes to their hands at the moment to murder Jews - all over the country, not only in the "territories".
The government simply has no solution to this latest phase in the now hundred and fifty years of war against he Jews in our land.
Giving them land or guns of Nobel prizes will not satiate the blood lust any more.
So what to do?
Find a common enemy that CAN be defeated; one that is sufficiently different from most Israelis. One that lives on the margins of society. One that will not agree to be cannon fodder for "peace". Gotcha! It's the hill top youth. Public enemy number one.
What is worse in Israel today than a Jew killed by an Arab? But of course an Arab killed by a Jew.
Add that to a weird wedding dance with weapons and we have a national hysteria and preoccupation that shades the daily Jewish blood letting. (Was this possibly a government set up as has happened in the past.. Avishai Raviv - govt provocateur who encouraged Amir to kill Rabin)?
Rabin in SS uniform, compliments of Raviv.. police dressed as Arabs to provoke settlers and then arrest them? Mmmm...
It remains to be seen how these kids managed to enter to the center of an Arab village, burn two houses, paint on the walls and leave unnoticed. Were they super commandos?
The family killed in the fire were involved in a bloody clan feud ( a common phenomenon in Arab society) in the village for years.
The Jewish suspects have been denied their legal rights and have undergone prolonged and severe torture, according to them , their families and their lawyers.
The government MUST get their man and it had better be a Jew!
All "according to the law" of course and with approval of the courts.
Once again the "Right wing " are heading for cover and hoping for an approving pat on the head from the powers that be.
After decades of witnessing this rule of law, I am reminded that there were also laws and courts in the USSR... and in Sedom too.
