“This should be worth a nice a good-sized packet of Shekels.”

(BANGKOK) We can only sit and wonder when some Apartheid-Zionist-Jewish-Israel-loving nation will blow this out of the water, just as Israel tried to blow the USS Liberty out of the water in June, 1967.  Will it be the United States applying its veto?

(LONDON)  There is a thought that has been brewing in my head since the latest massacre in Gaza and what followed. How to define a relationship between two peoples who live on the same piece of land but are, in terms of cultural, religious and political affiliations, oceans apart.

Gilad Atzmon on ‘Jew, Judaism, Jewishness’ – an interview with Bill Alford

 

gilad-1Author of runaway best seller The Wandering Who? discusses Three Jewish ID Categories: Religious Jew, Born a Jew and Politicized Jew aka Jewishness.

Jewishness pertains most. It is a problematic mix of ideology and culture. Atzmon characterized Jewishness as different manifestations of Jewish self-loving. Zionism, he observes, is just one form of Jewishness amongst many. Jewish Left is as exeptionalist and similarly exclusive.

Atzmon emphasizes the bane of Political Correctness – politics that allows for no opposition. He submits Political Correctness has been a Jewish Left Project for forty years, the period hearts & minds of The West have been essentially captured.

The important questions about Israel, and its supporting Lobby, are not even asked – What Is Jewishness and what are the relationships between Jews, Judaism, Zionism and Jewishness?

CANIM ANAM

Agron

Queen Belica

Jay R. Crook, Ph.D.   Global News Centre

“Canim anam” (My life, my mother) gives us a rare, intimate view of an ancient custom: the ceremonial washing of the feet of someone one respects. When the feet being washed belong to a parent—in this case the mother—it embodies both respect and love, amply evident in this family video. In it, the matriarch of the Belica family is surrounded by family members, both past and present. When her son Agron washes her feet, it is a ritual validation of the strength of their family ties. It is both refreshing and thought-provoking to watch this ceremony in an era in which family cohesion and values are under attack from all sides.
