Apples and honey, and all that jazz. Wishing you a sweet, happy and healthy Jewish new year, which begins at sundown.
It’s tempting to get paranoid and blame leftist anti-Semitism for the theft of our mezuzah on the rancho’s front door. But since our neighbors across the street still have theirs, we rather think it was taken by one of the multiple people who’ve been in and out prepping the house for sale. One in particular who bragged she collected souvenirs from the houses she worked on, though she denies it.
If I were more observant, I would have moved it to the mini-rancho the day we moved in.
“So here is the near future: Every time the New York Times runs another anti-Semitic cartoon (and it will), each time a left-wing member of Congress questions the patriotism or morality of American Jews (and one will), and on every occasion Jewish students are harassed on campus (and they will be), we go another mile down the road to the well-known historical disaster that is looming ahead.”
Except this time Jews will not be disarmed. The sheep dogs among us will be carrying, while the sheep prattle on about love-thy-neighbor.

A bazooka, actually. In the IDF. And a paratrooper, no less (brown boots).
“Universities and colleges are failing to protect Jewish students. It must stop.”
“The truly dangerous anti-Semitism, however, is coming from within the Democratic Party and its allies, often masquerading under the thinnest veneer of anti-Zionism. This growing bigotry has its origins in a vile alliance of the left and militant Islam (despite the obvious misogyny and homophobia of Islam — the left doesn’t care, for some reason). It has infected our college campuses to the degree that Jewish students often feel threatened and if they are supporters of Israel or (gasp!) Republicans, are forced to go underground in a democracy.”

“A spokesperson for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was forced to apologize on Tuesday for spreading the idea that Jews had dual-loyalty, thus demonstrating that liberal anti-Semitism is not confined to the utterances of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn…Belen Sisa, Sanders’ national deputy press secretary, left no doubt that she was questioning Jewish loyalty.”
Hey, it’s good enough for self-hating Bernie. Badabum.
We never knew how just was our cause until we entered the rotten interior of Germany and beheld for the first time the unbelievable results of Nazi greed and cruelty – the shallow, quick lime graves – the feeble thanks and tears of joy of the emaciated walking dead – the slave laborers, who were former free men in Europe – miserable wretches whose plight might well have been the lot of our own loved ones had we not succeeded.
May this history, then, be dedicated to those who died inconspicuously, but not in vain, that freedom might live.
