Jewish date: 10 Kislew 5770 (Parashath Wayyeṣe’).
Today’s holidays: Friday of the Thirty-Fourth Week of Ordinary Time (Roman Catholicism), Feast of Harry Smith (Thelema), Eidul-Adha (Islam).
Worthy cause of the day: “End Water Pollution from Mountaintop Removal Mining - The Petition Site”.
Today’s topic: “No Jews Allowed”. This The Dry Bones cartoon deals with a fundamental asymmetry in many “peace plans” meant to handle the Israeli-Arab War: Jews are supposed to completely evacuate “Arab” areas, while Arabs are supposed to be able to live everywhere in Israel. This is anti-Semitic, no matter how anyone tries to sugar-coat it. And, no, this is not specific to Barack Obama. This is commonly proposed, especially by Arabs and Muslims.
Peace and Shabbath shalom.
