Israel’s Nation-State Law—The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

The Good The modern state of Israel was conceived in answer to the socialist (Nazi) Shoah after WW-II, as a refuge-home for Jews globally; security against future threats of annihilation of Jews. Thus, the Nation-State Law, formally and officially defining Israel as such, is good. The archeological evidence found throughout Israel pre-dates Islam, Christianity—and Jews!…

הלולא (“Hilula”) updated in Glossary

Took several weeks of research & wrestling with gnarly implications to (I hope) make it now look simple (in the “More” icon page). Some of it relates to Pesakh. Khag ha-Matzot Sameiakh. (Go to http://www.netzarim.co.il, click on the E-J glossary page, then browser search either in English or Hebrew. Those who have visited the page…

Jewish & Israeli Anti-Arab Racism

Currently, there is much debate, and scathing criticism from Netanyah’s Likud party, in Israel over the “Blue & White” party’s possible alliance with Israeli Arab parties in a coalition following elections next month. From the Torah perspective, there is no longer any way to identify descendants of Amaleiq. There has never been any barrier to…

Egyptologists haven’t figured out yet: Why Pharaohs Were Buried Under Pyramids With Built-In Chapel

Egyptologists haven’t yet figured out why Pharaohs built pyramids, why Pharaohs were buried under their pyramids, nor why a chapel was built-in it. Once the Egyptian myths of “spirit gods” in “Sacred Mountains” and false doors with emerging spirit-gods are understood, the answer becomes straightforward: The pharaohs’ mummies were understood as divine seeds, planted under…

Israeli-Diaspora Rift: Orthodox Rabbinate Abuses Non-Orthodox Jews

The modern state of Yisraeil (Israel) was intended to be the ancestral home for Jews. But the Orthodox Rabbinate has disenfranchised all non-Orthodox—nearly 85% of world Jewry—as “goyim” unless they can racially prove their maternal genetic “Jewish” DNA. (This despite Israel-Jacob being born of the same mother as his twin, Esau–patriarch of about half of…

Israelis See Distortion Of American Jewry Thru Tainted Lenses

A couple of articles pertinent to the ‘Jewish Israeli-American Rift’, and pivoting on liberal American-Jewish/​Democrat Trumpophobia, appeared in Israel haYom yesterday (2019.02.19): one by an insider Jewish-American diplomat, Elliott Abrams (Are American Jews disenchanted with Israel?), and the other by a Belgian-Australian Israeli Jew, Isi Leibler (The disintegration of American Jewry). These articles should both…

Israel Election 2019: Discerning The Tail That Will Wag The Sheep

The consensus of practically every analyst and commentator is that Israel’s political parties are arraying themselves upon either of two bases: a coalition based on the Ultra-Orthodox Khareidim or a coalition based on the Arab parties. So there you are, standing on a land-mine. The ultimate dilemma: if you step off, boom! If you stand…

Israel Election 2019: Whence the Greater Danger?

What party wins most votes in election is not the determinant of the next government! At most, Likud is presently likely to obtain 32 seats – 29 seats short of the necessary control of the 120-seat K’nesset. So, the “winning” party immediately discovers that it has won nothing at all other than the first try…

Religion: Out of the Dark Ages Into Real-World Light

Latest Update (correction/clarification) 2019.02.14 Why? The Answer! I read and contemplate, therefore I exist as a sentient. My 5 senses perceive external influences upon me. Since nothing in my perceived universe exists without a cause, there is an Extra-universe Prime Cause; a Creator-Singularity, of both me and my perceived universe. This Extra-universe Prime Cause is…
