On Thursday Israel announced that it would not allow entry to US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minesota) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) because of their vocabulary and their vocal BDS advocacy. The House Democrats were considering issuing a no confidence statement regarding Israel Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer.
The controversy over anti-semitism and anti-Zionism is connected to the opposition of Americans today to President Trump and the claims that President Trump is a racist. President Trump has accepted Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. President Trump supports the annexation of the Golan Heights by Israel. People of America are claiming that President Trump and his rhetoric causes violence like the two recent incidents in Dayton Ohio and El Paso Texas. During the Obama administration there were also incidents of domestic terrorism.
Democratic-socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is no stranger to controversy, especially regarding her anti-Israel stances. She’s been criticized for supporting sanctions against Israel, aligning herself with Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, both of whom have been condemned for their anti-semantic comments, and most recently for her anti-Israel statements on the “Ebro in the Morning” talk show.
Each of the twelve tribes in the camp of Israel had a flag. All nations in the world have a flag. These flags are displayed at the entrance to the United Nations Building in New York. Two flags out of these flags have a special spiritual connection. They are the flag of America and the flag of Israel.
The Supreme Court struck down a lower court ruling 5-4 against President Trump declaration of an emergency on the border of Mexico. The ruling clears the way for Trump to redirect $2.5 billion from the Pentagon to build his long promised border wall. President Trump has faced opposition from Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer who have called the building of the wall a bluff and not a true solution at all. They claim that making the wall will not even dent crime in America.
President Trump appears crazy in love with Israel. There is a close connection between the two nations more than just politics and economics. Not only is Israel and America representing Democracy in the world, they are both connected to the essence of freedom and democracy revealed by their flags, the American flag also called the Star Spangled Banner, and the Israel Flag.
Islam is the third largest religion in the United States, after Christianity and Judaism. In 2017, a study estimated 3.4 million Muslims were living in the US, amounting to approximately 1.1 percent of the U.S. population.
Muslims in the United States come from varied backgrounds. A study by the Institute for Social Policy found that American Muslims are the only faith-based community with no majority race, being 25% black, 24% white, 18 % Asian, 18% Arab, 7% mixed race, and 5% Hispanic. Muslims in the United States are 50/50 native born vs. foreign born.
The American negotiator for peace in Middle East, Jared Kushner, continues to insist that an economic pathway is vital for Middle East peace. The Palestinians boycotted the conference but even Trump’s Arab allies saw the necessity of the two-state solution. Kushner was overwhelmed by the response he got. Every country that he invited showed up, and he had a very big crowd. There were a lot of senior business leaders from throughout the world.
Democracy which is enjoyed by America, Israeli and the free world continually faces conflicts between the two sides left and right. Democracy gives the right of both sides to interact peacefully but there is always conflicts over political control. After President Trump won the election he revealed himself as a conservative Republican. Republicans are generally more conservative than Democrats who are more liberal. Republicans can be conservative or liberal republican and democrats can be more or less liberal.
Minorities have a voice in Democracy. The communists a minority in America burned the American flag on the lawn of the White House on Independence Day in the middle of the address of President Trump.. Democracy allows the burning of the flag as a symbol of freedom of speech. Anarchism is also a minority. If not, there would be no state or law and order.
America like all nations in the world is fighting for survival. The difference between America and other nations is that America plays the game according to the rules. It allows freedom to its people, even to their opponents living with the Christian motto, “Love your enemy.”
In preparation, President Trump encouraged a fantastic event in DC on 4th of July. He said, “We want millions to come to DC for the Fourth of July. We want the people to come who love our country.”
America today is celebrating Independence Day. The nation was established July 1776 when the Continental Congress declared the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject to the monarch of Britain and now were united and independent states.
Before America could become an Independent nation they had to fight the American Revolutionary War that took place from 1775-1783. With the assistance of France the American colonial pioneers signed the Declaration of Independence and won their independence.
As the US delegation was lining up for a photo with South Korean counterparts on the eve of his historic steps into North Korea, President Trump and President Moon Jae-in were in the center with his wife Kim Jung-sook. In the back was Mike Pompeo and the next official in line was senior adviser Ivanka Trump Kushner. Mike Pompeo casually slipped into the photo. Ivanka took an unusual prominent role during her father’s trip to Asia.
Madonna came out with a new video striking out against gun violence and in support for gun control.
Gun control is a controversial topic in American society. The Second Amendment of the American Constitution reads: A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
America is working to negotiate peace between Israel and the Palestinians. There is resistance on both sides to the peace plan initiated by Jared Kushner representing President Trump, his father-in-law.
The first phase of the peace treaty involves a $50 billion investment in all interests surrounding Israel including Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, and Lebanon. The idea is to create first an environment for peace between these nations before reaching a political solution. The agreement will attempt to connect Gaza with the West Bank. Israel is concerned about its tourist trade located in the city of Eilat which will be cut off from the rest of Israel through this thoroughfare. This thoroughfare could also be used by terrorists from Arab Gihad to infiltrate Israel.
The economic portion of the Middle East peace plan has been unveiled by Jared Kushner the assistant to President Trump. It calls for an investment of $50 billion to lift up the economy of the Palestinian and neighboring countries. It also entails $5 billion dollars transportation corridor between Gaza and the West Bank. It is called the Peace to Prosperity plan. The plan faces opposition on both sides by religious fundamentalists.
Loyalty is defined as faithfulness to accept obligation. It has an important place in life.
Two people marry. They should be loyal to each other. A person goes out to work and accepts a job. His employer expects his worker to be loyal. This means that his worker is required to do all of his appointed duties. The employer designates to his worker what is his job. He is not obligated to do the job which is appointed to another worker. If the employee will not perform the employer has the right to fire him.
President Trump was very happy that Netanyahu succeeded to win the elections but is disgusted with Israel that they have not given him their support to form a new government.

On Sunday June 2, 2019 will be celebrated Jerusalem Day commemorating the reunification of Jerusalem and the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in the aftermath of the six day war in 1967.
In 1947 in the United Nations was proposed the establishment of two states in the British Mandate of Palestine, a Jewish State and an Arab State. Jerusalem was to be an International city neither Jewish nor Arab for a period of ten years when referendum would be made for the residents of Jerusalem to decide on which country to join. The Jewish leadership accepted the plan and the Arabs rejected the proposal.
For centuries abortion has been a topic of discussion and debate. Over the years the act of aborting a fetus has been labeled many things, a mortal sin, a basic right, an act of murder, a woman’s choice.
In the 1970’s we reached a crossroads as a country regarding abortion, and in 1973 the debate over abortion made its way to the Supreme Court of the United States. The case originated when Norma McCorvey, identified as Jane Roe for her protection, instituted a federal action against the district attorney of Dallas County, Texas, regarding a set of Texas statutes that, in most cases, criminalized abortion.
When the officials in Iran were interviewed recently they were asked: Why do you want to destroy Israel? Iran continuously publically states there intention to destroy Israel and wipe Israel off the face of the map. This is also the wish of Hamas and Jihad in the Gaza Strip. This official in Iran answered to this question, “Israel is an apartheid state. We were also against the apartheid state in South Africa.
Apartheid began in South Africa in 1948 when the National Party was elected in office. The National Party government classified all South African people into three races and developed rights and limitations for each.
The media, specifically the news media, is the cornerstone of a strong democracy. Not only does the media keep voters informed, but it also keeps elected officials and bureaucrats accountable. However the media must be held to an incredibly high standard, because if the media succumbs to sensationalism or bias, it becomes a danger to democracy.
It is sad to say that the American media seems to be headed down that path. The Cable News Network (CNN), once a symbol of journalistic integrity, seems to have now become, in the eyes of many, a symbol of partisan reporting. A recent Harvard study found that CNN’s coverage of the Trump administration was 93 percent negative.
President Trump in his speech to the Jewish Republican coalition showed his faithfulness to the State of Israel and the Jewish people. He has already declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel; and has supported the annexation of the Golan. He has also cancelled the Nuclear weapons agreement with Iran. In his speech to the Jewish Coalition of the Republican Party he promised to continue to support the Jewish people against Anti-Semitism.
Have you been wondering why the leftist Democrats want open borders?
As overcrowded and under-jobbed as the United States is, why would they want open borders? We can’t simply chalk it up to ignorance of elementary mathematics. There has to be a driving force behind their actions. Recent studies show that South American peoples (Mexicans, Hondurans, and others) are being assimilated into Islam at a much faster rate than all other cultures.
President Trump has appealed honestly for the need for building the wall to save lives. He is trying to awake the Americans up to value the life of Americans. America the past forty years has ignored the crime problems which exist in the big cities mostly due to drug traffic.
Rabbi Nachman of Breslov a Chassidic master who lived from 1772-1810 in the Ukraine taught, The world is a narrow bridge to cross over, most important is not to fear to complete the journey. There is no such thing as hopelessness. The World is in turmoil. With faith in God mankind can cross the river to World Unity and Peace walking on water.
