Everything Is Relative
Personality traits are like raw material, intrinsically neutral. Classifying any particular trait as positive or negative changes according to the specific way it is employed by an individual in a given situation. If you utilize each trait in its proper time and place, then that trait is considered positive. But if you apply a trait when it is inappropriate, it is considered negative.
For example, the positive trait of "generosity" can actually be negative if it turns into smothering and stifling. On the other hand, the negative trait of anger can be positive when used to fight against evil and injustice

Geert Wilders: 'Transfer all of the Palestinians to Jordan
- A right-wing Dutch parliamentarian is calling for the transfer of Palestinian Authority residents from Judea and Samaria to Jordan, offering the plan as an alternative to the US-backed Deal of the Century Middle East peace plan.
Geert Wilders, chairman of the rightist Party for Freedom (PVV), said Thursday in response to this week's US-backed economic summit in Bahrain that President Donald Trump s Mideast peace plan was part of a futile effort to maintain the Palestinian Authority, which he called a bottomless well the international community has been throwing money into in vain .
Speaking with Dutch reporter Ernst Lissauer Thursday, Wilders offered his own plan, first unveiled in 2010, as an alternative to the US plan.
A fifty-billion dollar plan for the Palestinians was presented to the world by the US this week in oil state Bahrain, Wilders said.
For more than two years, work has been done on a Middle East peace plan that should end, among other things, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The financial part of the plan was presented to the world in Bahrain this week. A 'Marshall plan' that should put an end to the bottomless Palestinian well into which the UN has been depositing money in vain for sixty years.
But, Wilders continued, there seems to be little support for the plan in the European Union, with the money being coughed up mainly by rich Arab states.
In The Hague there is hardly any interest in this Trump project. My plan, the Wilders plan, is a better plan; all Palestinians back to Jordan.
In 2010, Wilders proposed renaming the Kingdom of Jordan as Palestine , and turning the country into a homeland for residents of the Palestinian Authority.
"Jordan is Palestine. Changing its name to Palestine will end the conflict in the Middle East and provide the Palestinians with an alternate homeland."
The PVV, which is now the second largest faction in the Dutch House of Representatives, came under fire by the Jordanian government for the proposal, which Jordan described as delusional.
Following in Rav Kook's footsteps, two of two
With Rabbi Sinclair, we follow the footsteps of Rav Kook to first to Ness Ziona, then Rishon LeTsiyon, with lunch at the Weizmann Institute at Charlie's and then to Rehovot to more Beit Kennesets and more of the history. At the beginning of the YouTube is pictures from the Jerusalem gay parade and the shiva at the Presidents house where I participated in a Shiva for the wife of the President.
Please read this extract from an article written by Amil Imani who was an Iranian Muslim.
He left Iran and Islam when the hateful mullahs took over Iran and destroyed it from within while becoming the most evil state sponsor of terror worldwide.
Amil Imani now warns a foolish West of the peril of allowing Muslim immigration, which seeks not assimilation in the countries it enters but domination.
Here then are his wise words, which we ignore at our peril.
US Officials' Silence Is Deafening
American people have always been kind and generous to foreigners. They haven't a clue that they opened the gate to the greatest enemy into their land. Islam is on the march, and it aims to destroy anything and anyone who stands in its way. Sounding the clarion call is not Islamophobia, as many Muslims and their apologists claim. A phobia is a baseless irrational fear. Warning of the danger of Islam is based on irrefutable facts, and it is not only rational, but ethically imperative.
With the arrival of massive numbers of Muslims to America, our culture and our way of life are forever transformed. By now, most Americans know that Islam is incompatible with our laws and the U.S. Constitution. Again, nothing is being done officially to combat that.
Islamists, by sheer numbers, eventually will be able to vote out democracy in many countries. They will elect Muslims to all positions of local influence, who will create and enforce policy according to the Quran. Once they have control over a town, they will begin to establish informal sharia, and there's nothing the government can (or will want to) do about it.
Oddly enough, our elected officials have completely ignored the Islamization of European cities. Many European elected officials, acting out of tremendous fear, have granted Muslims the right to establish their own shadow governments within the borders of countries like Sweden, England, the Netherlands, France, and Belgium, where they control their own population via sharia law without any accountability.
Muslims in the West realize that it is easier to change America through subversion (stealth jihad) than through violent jihad.
In a nutshell, subversion is "seeking or intending to subvert an established system or institution." Islamic ideology, for example, in its entirety is a subversive element whose goal is to defeat, obliterate, or destabilize an established or existing system, especially a legally constituted government or a set of beliefs.
Across the country, schoolchildren are being indoctrinated and taught propaganda that praises Islam, while Christianity and other religions are being put down.
Presently, Islam is making inroads in traditionally non-Muslim lands, where it is beginning to run deep roots and vie with the laws and cultures of its hosts. Muslims are taking advantage of the freedom democracies provide. They use the same provisions of the law that are intended to protect and enhance liberty in order to subvert democracy and freedom. Today, our country is faced with a formidable enemy in the Trojan horse called Islam. This clear danger makes it imperative to revisit the U.S. Constitution and see if freedom of religion gives Muslims a license to break other American laws.
Islamic subversion is not limited to liberal states. Texas, the most conservative state in the Union, is completely undefended before Islamic subversion. I personally have witnessed the fact that politicians on both sides either are silent or openly appease Muslims for the fear of being characterized as Islamophobic or racist. We, the people, elect our leaders, and we hold them accountable to be honorable. But they refuse to stand by their oath of office and defend the Constitution they swore on.
Sadly, a vast ignorance prevails in this sphere. Academic pundits, leftist journalists, and hired Islamic apologists, better known as "useful idiots," proclaim that Islam is a religion of peace and that the great majority of Muslims are not party to any plans and actions of radicals.
So how do we stop this sequence of events? How can our government, which has so effectively protected the rights of peaceful religions, protect us from an aggressive one? Good question!
I believe that the jihadist ideology in the 21st century represents a far greater threat to Western democracies than the communist ideology represented in the 20th century. The link between the two ideologies is that both are totalitarian and subversive.
