  1. Yamit. I was puzzled at your phrase “Teshuva, Don’t Leave the World Without It” and it turns out it is even a link. I would have said, Don’t leave the world without repenting. That story asks why some people live so long. The Bible says it is because they honour their father and mother. It is promised.

    Ex 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

  2. Okay, Yamit. I found the site you quoted in just one search: here. G-d raises up leaders, righteous or evil ones depending on His purposes and holds evil leaders in derision (Psalm 2). So consent then is from the Most High. The French philosophers were for the most part godless men.

    Dan 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

    Notice King Nebuchadnezzar’s conclusion:

    Dan 4:32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
    33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.
    34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:
    35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

    Further, when Israel wanted a King and Samuel said No, the Lord told Samuel:

    1Sa 8:7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, ***but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.***
    8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.
    9 Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.

    Look up the rest of 1 Sam Ch 8 for what kind of King G-d gave them and what that king would do to them. While once they were free to worship and serve G-d only, they became slaves to government.

    When a society is lawless, G-d raises up evil leaders who assist in bringing His judgment upon them. The problem is most people are deceived and vote in tyrants such as Hitler and modern day counterparts and once voted in those leaders wreak havoc on the righteous. I suspect that soon that will be the handicapped, the elderly, plus Jews (again) and Christians.

    Yamit: Don’t love the world and the Tribe so much you don’t have time to love G-d.

  3. Teshuva, I can liken my world view to The Hebrew Prophets,some of Ayn Rand and Transcendentalist thinkers like :
    All government derives its authority from the consent of the governed. While this may appear more explicit in the case of “democratic” governments than in the case of authoritarian governments, the process is the same in both. Consent is measured by obedience (even if obedience is undertaken under protest). As Henry David Thoreau noted and Emma Goldman reiterated, voting is, at best, largely irrelevant to this process. At worst, it is an illusion of action that partly facilitates consent by diverting attention from the action that matters–obedience, disobedience, or disregard. In the final analysis, it matters less who is elected or how particular faces of civil power in particular places came to occupy their positions than whether their directives are obeyed by publics on which they are imposed. If yes, the civil power has consent; if no, it has no authority.

    It follows (as Thomas Paine noted) that sovereignty is a property of individual agents, not States. The legitimacy of a State is derived entirely from its people.

    In this sense, the legitimacy of a State may depend as much on the confusion of its people as on their informed consent. Since it is not relevant to the authority of the State whether consent is informed, obfuscation is as likely as information to be the means by which a State secures its legitimacy. In “democratic” States, one of the most familiar instances of this is the widely cultivated notion of respect for law, often expanded to encompass the idea of “a government of laws, not of men.” The idea, of course, is directed against corruption, individual abuses of power, and cults of personality. But, as Thoreau noted in his classic treatise on civil disobedience, respect for law in and of itself does nothing to improve the human beings who respect it–and, in the case of unjust laws, it has quite the opposite effect. In a society, for instance, in which slavery is the law, respect for law demeans human beings–whether they be slaves, slave owners, or bystanders. This was Thoreau’s point in attacking particularly his own “free” State of Massachusetts and its citizens for their complicity in slavery. What is to be respected, Thoreau argued, is not law, but right

    Teshuva, Don’t Leave the World Without It

  4. Yamit: I used to be a Pollyanna like you and thought government was wonderful; then I repented. The light dawned. The world as we would like to have it isn’t that way at all. The world looks a lot like Sodom or as the days before The Flood. Evil men intend to enslave the world and kill off the righteous. Oh, say can you see? No. Investigate why not. Shema?

  5. Bill, I bet you still believe in the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, and Santa as well?

    Teshuvah, if one percent of all the conspiracy theories were true the world would have ended hundreds or thousands of years ago. I for one in most cases am willing to acknowledge that stupid, greedy, evil, people do stupid and evil things based on greed and power and a thousand other reasons and sometimes their calculations are so far off that they cause calamities large and small. The jury must be still out on bush as we are still too close to his time and he is still active, that being said I can think of no sitting president that has at the same time squandered historic opportunities to really change the face of the world and mankind and being the sitting President who will in all probability (not alone in this) will have brought Israel to the brink. That being said why do we give so much credit to poeple and leaders that when looking at their track records cannot not show any successes but they are still in place still getting it all wrong What did Einstein say?

    It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong. – Voltaire (1694-1778)

    Teshuva, Don’t Leave the World Without It

  6. Yes, the children are beautiful. However, the fish rots from the head down and the State Department is lower than the W.H. That being so, Bush is probably a puppet of his Illuminati occult masters. I learned a long time ago to never trust a pretty smile. B.Clinton said while President that no one gets to his position without being controlled by others, and he didn’t mean other lower than him. Used car salesmen can smile wonderfully, but watch out for the small print. Watch the results (fruit) of everyone and act accordingly.

  7. Two points.

    All the children in this video are beautiful.

    Secondly, Pres. Bush appeared genuinely appreciative of the reception he received and his warm smiles were genuine.

    From this clip, I once again am moved to think that however misguided or perverse, even deliberately so, Pres. Bush’s advisers are in pushing him to push Israel down a road that is fraught with danger, he does see himself as a friend of Israel and balances that friendship between his support for Israel with the advice he receives from his State Department as to what is in America’s best interests.

    Attacking Pres. Bush’s State Department for America’s policies and positions that are seen as threatening Israel’s security may be more on target then targetting Pres. Bush.

  8. My views by the way are not held by the mainstream Christian church on the broad way to destruction. They consider me “legalistic” which means I keep the Law and they don’t. I consider them apostate and fallen away.

    Ps 119:97 MEM. O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

    Ps 119:113 SAMECH. I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.

    Ps 119:163 I hate and abhor lying: but thy law do I love.

    Yeshua said this 2,000 years ago, and this is the big Gotcha between Judaism and Christianity:

    Lu 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!
    35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

    Who comes in the name of the Lord? He does. Christians do, albeit some believe some things incorrectly.

  9. The text on Youtube names the singers:

    Reception for the President of the United States, George W. Bush, at the official residence of Shimon Peres, President of the State of Israel, in Jerusalem, Jan 9, 2008.

    Adi Bar-Lev, from Ra’anana, and Sharyan Masrawi, from Jaffa, welcome Bush with the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”.

    Bush exchanges high-fives with Israeli kids.

    Other songs include Hevenu Shalom Aleichem, and Hava Nagila.

    The red rose and the song Somewhere Over the Rainbow are connected with the occult and the Illuminati.

  10. Another Tack: Follow the yellow brick road (JERUSALEM POST OP-ED) By SARAH HONIG 01/20/08) Source: JERUSALEM POST JERUSALEM POST Articles-Index-Top Publishers-Index-Top
    As part of last week´s provincial, sycophantic and syrupy welcome for George Bush – orchestrated with every shameless kitschy contrivance – some inspired stage-manager had a young girl offer red roses and cloyingly sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” to the big boss, who had come down from the White House to boost his own sagging prestige and that of his flunky fawning protege, Ehud Olmert. Schmaltzy excess notwithstanding, there´s lots of merit to choosing The Wizard of Oz theme. It was just used incorrectly. Here´s a more apt rewrite.

    The cast:

    Dorothy – Shimon Peres

    The Wonderful Wizard of Oz – G. “Dubbleya” Bush

    Glinda – Condi Rice

    The Wicked Witch of the West Bank – Mahmoud “Abu-Mazen” Abbas

    The Tin Man – Ehud Olmert

    The Cowardly Lion – Ehud Barak

    The Scarecrow – Tzipi Livni

    The Flying Monkeys – Kassams and Katyushas

    The Munchkins – Israel´s citizenry

    The Yellow-Brick Road – the “road map”

    The plot synopsis:

    Our incurably optimistic Dorothy, always enthusiastically promoting rosy visions of “The New Middle East,” never tires of reminding us that “somewhere over the rainbow way up high, there´s a land” she´s “heard of once in a lullaby.” Adversity won´t dampen her escapist delusions, because:

    “When all the world is a hopeless jumble

    And the raindrops tumble all around

    Heaven opens a magic lane…

    To a place behind the sun

    Just a step beyond the rain…

    Where troubles melt like lemon-drops

    Way above the chimney-tops.”
