Jewish date: 22 Siwan 5770 (Parashath Shelaḥ).
Today’s holidays: Friday of the Ninth Week of Ordinary Time (Roman Catholicism), Feast Day of St. Werner Klemperer (Church of the SubGenius).
Worthy causes of the day: “Support Israel In Gaza Flotilla Incident Petition”, “Take Action: Letter to Vice President Biden | Save Darfur”, “End Corporate Control of Our Food Supply - The Petition Site”.
Topic 1: Considering the current diplomatic row over Israel actively working to keep the Free Gaza “peace activists” who are actually anti-Semitic jihadists out of Gaza, there is no way I can simply let the Mavi Marmara incident drop. (I am working on something on Jesus as depicted in the Talmudh, but you will have to wait a while until it is ready.) Itai Epstein, Director of Amnesty International in Israel, looks like an idiot in “Amnesty: Gaza is Still Under Israeli Occupation” by having his views subjected to logic and having the contradictions therein exposed. (E.g., if Israel is an occupying power and thus is responsible for the people of Gaza, should they not be obligated to act against the terrorist group Ḥamas?) “While Israel attacked Flotilla, Hamas raided Gaza NGOs” has a title which speaks for itself about hypocrisy. “Behind the Headlines: The Israeli humanitarian lifeline to Gaza” discusses how much aid actually reaches Gaza. “"Suicide Activists on the Gaza Flotilla" (MediaGoliath.com)” discusses biased reporting which blatant contradicts evidence.
“Wheelchairs as well as weapons found on board aid ships” discusses what was found on the Mavi Marmara. “An Assault on Israel, Cloaked in Peace - NYTimes.com” discusses the incident in terms of what the evidence shows and in terms of jihad.
I pray that Binyamin Nethanyahu not cave in to international pressure and stop any further alleged “peace activist” ships from reaching Gaza.
Topic 2: “Jews worldwide share genetic ties”. If you wondered, the idea that Eastern European Jews are mostly descended from the Khazars is dead.
Topic 3: For today’s religious humor: the Faustian “Basement Cat’s Minion traded his soul”:
