Since last week’s controversy, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has made a bold and unequivocal statement regarding Israel and his association with Roger Waters. The presidential candidate claimed to have defended Waters' protest against vaccine mandates – only. /2
When he learned of Waters' views on Israel, Kennedy took down the post and expressed unwavering support for Israel's right to exist and defend itself.[Video: @yopasta/Twitter]

CROSS-BORDER TERRORIST ATTACKS UNDERMINE DECISION TO CEDE SINAI PENINSULA // Since 2011, repeated cross-border terrorist attacks have made the Sinai Peninsula Israel's deadliest international border. Image
Over the weekend, an Egyptian police officer armed with a gun, six magazines of ammunition, and a Quran, infiltrated Israeli territory and murdered three Israeli soldiers.
Egypt's government is defending the terrorists' actions and offered "sincere condolences" to his family. Israel sacrificed the Sinai Peninsula, twice its size, for peace with Egypt – ceding strategic depth, natural resources, and control of key trade routes like the Suez Canal.

Okay folks, as requested, here is my #thread about ANGELS in Judaism and might even tap into the differences between Judaism's angels and those within Christianity (if I have time).
#threads #threadseries #judaism #Christianity
So, before we even begin with angelic presence in the Torah and Tanakh, I think it's important to to note where angels are NOT present. Let's start with Genesis 1. While it is a popular idea that the "us" here refers to God and the angels, that is a much later idea imposed.../1
...upon the text. Instead, this refers to the pantheon, polytheistic beginnings. This is true for "b'nai elohim" (sons of god, people of god, etc), this does NOT refer to angelic beings. The transposing of angels on these polytheistic aspects of the Torah are the work.../2

I've been discussing the uptick in #antisemitism w/ my kids. If yours are asking, you can tell them: #Judaism rejects the essentialism & hierarchies of the right + the relativism & universality of the left. We are existential threats to people who believe in these shibboleths.🧵
In "Proud Boys and the White Ethnostate" @MinnaStern wrote that every group in the US alt-right has two things in common: antipathy towards feminism and Judaism. Why? What do these two have in common?…
The right-wing in every country depends upon and thus demands both a rigid hierarchy and essentialism of identities. In the US, the hierarchy puts white, heterosexual, Christian, able-bodied men at the top. Every deviation from that moves a person down in the hierarchy.

While the western #MSM conveniently is engaged in another campaign to rail selectively against #Iran’s treatment of woman, another example surfaces of #Apartheid #Israel legitimizing sexual assault against non-Jews without consequence.

To understand why some Israeli’s behave so abhorrently towards non-Jews, one has to understand that some Israeli’s believe in a fundamental interpretation of the Talmud that goyim (Non-Jews) are ‘sub-human’ compared to Jews, and are meant to serve them. Let’s provide an example.
The former Sephardi Chief Rabbi of #Israel from 1973-1983, Ovadia Yosef, interpretation of #Judaism was that: “Goyim (non-Jews) have no place in the world - only to serve the People of Israel.”
This highly influential cleric is by no means alone on this.…

யூதப் பேரினவாதமும் பாலத்தீன தொல்குடியும் - 🧵👇🏽

மத அடிப்படையிலான பேரினவாத அரசியலைப் புரிந்துகொள்ள பாலஸ்தீனத்தின் வரலாற்றுடன் யூதர்களின் வரலாற்றையும் அறிவது தேவையாகிறது.

விவிலியத்தின் (#Bible) பழைய ஏற்பாட்டை புனிதநூலாக ஏற்கும் யூதர்கள், புதிய ஏற்பாட்டை ஏற்கும் கிறித்தவர்கள் நம்பும் 'இயேசுவே தேவதூதன்' என்பதை ஏற்காதோர். யூதர்கள் இயேசுவை இறைதூதராய் ஏற்கமறுத்த காலத்திலிருந்தே மத உரசல்கள் மத்திய கிழக்காசியப் பகுதிகளில் நடந்து வந்துள்ளன.

எளிமையாகச் சொல்லப்போனால் இந்துமதத்தில் மனுநீதியை ஏற்போர், ஏற்காதோர் என்பது போன்றே தான் யூதரும் கிறித்தவரும். மனுநீதி பிறப்பின் அடிப்படையில் பார்ப்பனர் உயர்ந்தோரென்ற கருத்தை வலியுறுத்தவதைப் போன்றே யூதமதம் யூதர்களை கடவுளின் நேரடி பிள்ளைகளாக, உயர்ந்தோராகப் போற்றிக்கொள்கிறது.

Do-it-yourself, homeschooling, online courses, and creating our own in-person or hybrid havurah and Hebrew school are affordable alternatives to consider—as we make our plans (already!) for 5783.

#Judaism #Shul #HebrewSchool
Whatever you do, PLEASE don’t “settle” for some ultratraditional congregation just because it offers a financial arrangement that isn’t (much of) a hardship. The full price will include your kids being taught values that contradict the inclusive values you really want for them.
And read the fine print.
Your daughter may not get to do and learn everything your son will get to do and learn.
And as for your gay or otherwise nonconforming kid…don’t ask.
Also, what will your kids be taught about all the other people on this planet—both Jews and others?

A short thread on key arguments in my new book Whatever Happened to Antisemitism? Redefinition and the Myth of the ‘Collective Jew’ which you can buy direct from Pluto Press here /1…
Discussion about #antisemitism is plagued by confusion and bitter argument. In his endorsement of my book @PeterBeinart calls contemporary debate on it ‘both incoherent and appalling . . . a hot mess.’/2
Yet we were told that the 2016 International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (#IHRA) ‘working definition’ of #antisemitism had brought ‘international gold standard’ clarity to its contemporary meaning; that without IHRA it wasn’t possible to fight antisemitism./3

Ukrainian #Jewish #mma fighter tortured in #Ukraine.
Matched tattoos on his knee to confirm it is Maxim Ryndovskiy. #OSINT #Ryndovskiy
Open source info = 2 versions:
1/ He was Pro-Chechen visiting DPR regularly
2/ Far right Ukrainians (Nazi supporters)
No solid intel yet.
#Facebook ID:100026417802478, so far, no Pro-Russian or pro-Chechen views have been found which would corroborate Version 1. His FB profile has friends in Ukraine and Russia, mostly female, no Chechens, no open source Pro-Russian propaganda. #OSINT #Ukraine #Ryndovskiy
His #Twitch account, he can be seen playing war games…
His videos:
*Note the Star of David on his logo, the only thing found so far in regards to Pro-Russian or Pro-Chechen views is nothing, just a love for #judaism and his roots.

Details on the #NATO (re)deployments to cope with the fallout from #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Details on #Ukraine's reservist mobilisation: far from complete (since that would require martial law), but still of a scale that it will take weeks to complete ... and the assault on the capital is days away at most

Made a mess of these threads. Integrating them here
#Ukraine's President Zelensky said a few hours ago he is still going to Germany tomorrow for the Munich Security Conference. Whether this is supposed to promote calm or what is unclear; it's a hell of a time for him to leave his capital.
President #Biden just said in his White House address that the US believes the #Russians will invade #Ukraine in the next few days and "they will target Ukraine's capital, Kiev". Image

🌳¡FELIZ AÑO NUEVO… De los árboles!🌳
Sí, sí. ¿#SabiasQue en el Judaísmo, se celebran varios años nuevos? Uno de ellos, es el de los árboles, que empieza este 16 de enero.

Si quieres saber más… Abro 🧵
#tubishvat #arboles #jewish #trees #judaismo #Judaism
El día 15 del mes Shvat (que este año empieza en la tarde del día 16 de enero) es el día que se celebra el cumpleaños de los árboles. Es un día importante, no sólo por motivos bíblicos como ahora veremos, sino porque también nos recuerda el respeto a la naturaleza.
A este día se le llama ט״ו בשבט (tu bishvat), ya que el número 15 en hebreo se escribe con las letras tav (ט) (nuestra t) y vav (ו) que en este caso diremos que es una “u” (aunque no siempre. Eso para otro día). Shvat (o Shevat) es el nombre del mes judío en el que estamos.

مقالتي حول الماريجوانا واخطارها الصحية والاجتماعية والاقتصادية ورأي الدين في الموضوع.

My latest article about Marijuana; its negative impact on health, community, and economy, as well as religion’s stance on the subject.

-Translation in Thread-

1- research shows very limited if any specific advantage for marijuana (THC, CBD, etc) in treating any medical conditions. And to date, the FDA has not approved a marketing application for cannabis for the treatment of any disease or condition.
2- there is some research that shows some applications in adjunct treatment of a rare kinds of epilepsy ( Lennox-Gastaut syndrome or Dravet syndrome) and also as an appetite stimulant in cancer, AIDS or Alzheimer’s patients.

Let me explain something about the canard that #Judaism permits #abortion based on the concept of "rodef" or "pursuer."

Forget the fact that third status only applies when an abortion is required to literally save the life of the mother, in medical terms.

That's secondary.>
Again: It is indeed not only permitted, but required, to kill a pursuer to save the life of the pursued.

And we say that a fetus is like a pursuer if, but remaining pregnant, the mother is likely to die.

And why don't we say this about toenails, teeth or tumors? >
Because we don't have to. Who would think otherwise?

We have to teach this about a fetus, however, not because the Torah classifies a fetus like a tumor (which obviously we can remove) but because it classifies a fetus like a person. >

10 big difference between Islam and Judaism.


*ISLAM is an Arabic word meaning submission and in the religious context, it means submission to the will of God. Islam is derived from an Arabic word literally meaning Peace.

*JUDAISM can be broken down as Juda & Ism. The English term originates in the Biblical
Hebrew word "Yehuda" meaning "from the kingdom of Judah" or "worshipper of one God".

1/8 Hell yeah, let’s redefine #antisemitism in such a way that everything not mentioning explicit #Jews or compares #Israel with the worlds worst atrocities is NOT #antisemitic.

Ripping The Jerusalem Declaration on Antisemitism (JDA) apart.
2/8 -12: Criticizing or opposing Zionism as a form of nationalism. Sure. Where is the bond between #Judaism & #Zionism? Forgotten and completely whipped of the table. I even suspect that the eternal bond between #Jews and #Israel is completely ignored.
3/8 -13: Racial discrimination. Settler-colonialism. Apartheid.
Nice sum-up. This implies that all 3 occur in #Israel and is an open house for the #Jew hating bunch.

Racial discrimination. Any country where it’s not? Hint – black face a worldwide phenomenon. BLM movement?

On the #Zoroastrian origins of a weekly #Catholic Ritual

پندار نیک، گفتار نیک، کردار نیک

Most people who are Catholic, or were raised in the Roman Catholic rite, will be familiar with the triple crossing ritual during the Mass.

#Iranian #زرتشت #CatholicTwitter ImageImage
In the moment before the Gospel reading, the priest says “a reading from the Gospel according to (X)”, and the congregation replies “glory to you, o Lord”, before performing this gesture.

Using their thumb, they cross their forehead, then their lips, then their heart.
Few if any Catholic knows that this gesture is a modern representation of an ancient philosophy inherited from #Zoroastrianism:

- Blessing the forehead signifies “good thoughts”
- Blessing the lips signifies “good words”
- Blessing the heart signifies “good deeds”
