Intense Shabus

.

A psychedelic experience is a journey to new realms of consciousness. The scope and content of the experience is limitless, but its characteristic features are the transcendence of verbal concepts, of space-time dimensions, and of the ego or identity. Such experiences of enlarged consciousness can occur in a variety of ways: sensory deprivation, meditation, religious ecstasies.
-Timothy Leary


Dude Shabus is what you make of it.

BLITHERING IDIOTS

Simon Wiesenthal was laid to rest in a Herzliya, Israel today.

Ambassadors and senior officials from all over the world came to pay respect to the Nazi hunter.

However, not one single Israeli government minister came to the funeral.


Deputy minister Michael Melchior was the only government representative who bothered to attend.


"Senior people from countries overseas came to the funeral, but it seems that for government ministers, the cemetery in Herziliya is too far," said an organizer.


My Hesped Mar Z"L:


A survivor of the Nazi death camps, Wiesenthal dedicated his life to fighting the Nazis. He died in his home in Austria (because you don't hunt for polar bear in florida) . Wiesenthal, along with others , founded the Jewish Historical Documentation Center in Linz, Austria.In 1953, Wiesenthal passed information to the Israelis that Adolf Eichmann was in Argentina. In 1977, he founded the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Vienna, the main branch of the Center is now in Los Angeles; bringing over a thousand Nazi criminals to trial. We are told to do the work of the Lord, Simon Wiesenthal did the work of the Lord,because the Lord wasn't. Simon Wiesenthal did not go straight to heaven , no he made a B-line to hell (he had some old scores to settle).

of G-d and his people (part1)

I decided to write a few essays covering the topic of our relationship with HaShem.I assume many of you will ignore them ,some of you will enjoy and that most of you could be offended.But know this I love G-d, perhaps not as you do; to me He is part of my family and as such subject to things "family".

Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev(1740-1810) a beloved figure in Jewish history. Born into a prominent rabbinical family, studied with the "Pri Megadim," himself a great scholar and rabbi of a number of communities.After meeting Rabbis Shmelke Nikolsburg and Dov Baer of Mezhirech, he joined Chassidis and became a influential leader. He is famous for defending the Jews and interpreting our actions in the best light.

My favorite is the tale where RLY can not decide if he should blow shofar one Rush Hashanah (after a horrific year for the Jews of Russia).He argues with the shofar in front of the congregation back and forth. Finally he throws the horn down in disappointment (?) and says "G-d if you love Czar Alexander so much let him blow Your shofar".

New Dolls a Real Bomb

.








Today’s New York Times has an article about the new Barbie doll in the Mid-east called Fulla.


DAMASCUS, Syria, Sept. 21 - In the last year or so, Barbie dolls have all but disappeared from the shelves of many toy stores in the Middle East. In their place, there is Fulla, a dark-eyed doll with, as her creator puts it, "Muslim values."

It comes complete wearing her modest "outdoor fashion."with black abaya and matching head scarf and of course a mathcing bag packed with explosives for that special day.

3 little words

.

A Taiwanese publisher has withdrawn a map of Taipei showing a rock singer wearing a T-shirt with three words in gothic letters refering to promiscuity.
"The person responsible for issuing the map didn't understand English, but when we saw the picture, we thought it better to withdraw it from circulation," said a company spokeswoman.
The map is still available at some hotels in Taipei, though. "We have no right to interfere with the hotels, they make their own decision about the map," she said.

After swiping the Florida Keys, Rita moved into the Gulf of Mexico and strengthened to a category 4 storm, packing 150 mph winds, according to the National Hurricane Center. Rita could intensify into a category 5 hurricane, the NHC warned. Generating winds of over 155 mph and 18 foot storm surges and it can rip roofs off most buildings. Only three hurricanes this powerful have ever hit the U.S.

The storm is forecast to hit Texas early on Saturday.


What do you think President Bush's recovery plan for the Hurricane in Texas is?

Let’s get this straight. Anti Zionist is not synonymous with Anti Jewish. Anti Zionism is the result of illegal israeli occupation. Any ill feelings towards Israelis is just an extension of the Arabs being victimized. Right? OK.

RECENTLY IN England, four Muslim-staffed committees appointed to advise Prime Minister Tony Blair and his Cabinet on issues related to Islam have come up with a recommendation: Get rid of Holocaust Memorial Day.

They claim that ''The very name Holocaust Memorial Day sounds too exclusive to many young Muslims. It sends out the wrong signals: that the lives of one people are to be remembered more than others." They aren't proposing that the Holocaust commemoration be scrapped outright. They want it to be folded into a ''Genocide Memorial Day" that will also include other crimes as well.

But the problem with the proposal goes far deeper. The other ''genocides" for which they want recognition include the Israeli killings of Palestinians.

or

Alan Dershowitz



You gotta be kidding me. These vile forms of life are comparing the systematic extermination of a whole race of people to a situation where the Israelis have been providing social security, schools, water and electrical infrastructures and have generally significantly outdone their Egyptian and Jordanian predecessors.

Through this obvious demonstration of vile hate, these English Muslim committees have not only expressed their specific loathsomeness for Israelis by grossly exaggerating the Palestinian situation they have also expressed their general loathsomeness of Jews by diminishing the Holocaust.

Reform rabbi petitions High Court for official post





A Reform rabbi from Kibbutz Gezer has petitioned the High Court, demanding that the State of Israel admit Reform rabbis into the official Rabbinate and treat them as equals with Orthodox rabbis.

Gold contends that Israel practices a form of religious discrimination by not accepting Reform rabbis into the Rabbinate. “The Jewish liberal public is blatantly discriminated against....

Dedicated Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal dies at 96

Simon Wiesenthal, the Holocaust survivor who helped track down numerous Nazi war criminals following World War II and spent the later decades of his life fighting anti-Semitism and prejudice against all people, died Tuesday at the age of 96.

Wiesenthal passed away in his sleep at his home in Vienna, Austria, according to Rabbi Marvin Hier, the dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles.

Rabbi Hier told The Jerusalem Post that Wiesenthal's family, who live in Israel, were en route to Vienna to retrieve his body. He will be buried in Israel, and a memorial at the center will be held at a later date, Hier said. Hier believes the contribution of Simon Wiesenthal to history is best described as keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive during the crucial years

If Bubbe had had a beard...




.

We would call her Zayde.

Thats what my Bubbe always told me.

If we would give land to the Arabs then they would act in a civil manner. That's what the world always told me. Well, during the last week or so our Ishmael cousins have continued in their civil ways.

.

  1. They sacked and burned many of the two dozen synagogue facilities left to stand in the abandoned Gaza settlements, as Palestinian police stood by .
  2. They looted greenhouses that were left behind that the Palestinian Authority hopes to employ as part of its plan to rebuild the economy in Gaza.
  3. They smuggled hundreds of assault rifles from Egypt into Gaza.
  4. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas pledged he will not "confront" Hamas ”We never had any intention to have a confrontation with Hamas or with others. We want to solve all our problems through negotiations."
  5. Muslim men burned down 14 homes belonging to Christian families near Ramallah in the West Bank because they believed that a 23-year-old woman from their village was romantically involved with a Christian man from Taybeh. The woman had already been murdered by family members.
  6. PA security adviser Moussa Arafat, Yasser Arafat's cousin, was murdered gangland-style only a few blocks from Abbas' house in Gaza City.
  7. There have already been bombings and other attacks that killed or wounded Israelis

The point is: No matter what she will always be Bubbe

With his week old post ,on the one item he hates most about Contemporary Orthodox Jewish Culture.


Then Dov Ber chimed in in with
a post regarding the bane of his jewish existence.

Today as I'm forced to show up at work (sunday!!!), I would like to ask you (my dear reader) to share with the World Wide Web the one mitzvah you would negate if you could.


Said Mitzvah can be Divine, rabbinic, tradition, cultural in origin and it maybe positive or negative in nature.
