ZIONISM

By Simon Fischler 
I do not usually quote the Old texts, but here is some food for thought. Zionism is as old as the Hebrew, Israelite, Jewish nation. Anyone, Jew or not, who fails to realize this fact has no concept of who or what the Jewish/Israelite/Hebrew nation is. 
Psalm 137
1. By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept
    when we remembered Zion.
2. There on the poplars
    we hung our harps,
3. for there our captors asked us for songs,
    our tormentors demanded songs of joy;
    they said, Sing us one of the songs of Zion!
4. How can we sing the songs of the Lord
    while in a foreign land?
5. If I forget you, Jerusalem,
    may my right hand forget its skill.
6. May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth
    if I do not remember you,
if I do not consider Jerusalem
    my highest joy.
7. Remember, Lord, what the Edomites did
    on the day Jerusalem fell.
Tear it down, they cried,
    tear it down to its foundations!
8. Daughter Babylon, doomed to destruction,
    happy is the one who repays you
    according to what you have done to us.
9. Happy is the one who seizes your infants
    and dashes them against the rocks. 
First, if I am correct there is no mention of songs of Palestine! 
Second, we remember Jerusalem, not Al-Quds! 
Third, this detention, enslavement is but the start of the confrontation between the Hebrew, Israelite, Jewish people and those who would become part of the Arab, colonialist nation. 
Being part of the Jewish nation has no color, whether black, white or purple, but it does necessitate recognizing the truth that we are a nation. Our nation is linked without doubt to our land Israel, Judea and Samaria. 
What does Zionism mean?
It means "Next year in Jerusalem" (something Jews have been saying in Israel long before there was a Mohammad or the Arab political movement called Islam). 
It means Jewish self-determination in the land of Israel where we have been living for centuries.
Zionism means governing the Jewish nation, caring for the land of Israel and helping our fellow Jews still oppressed in foreign lands. It means all of this while still accepting those who are not Jewish but are born among Israel s borders. 
Zionism or Israel or the Jewish National movement (that dates back to Yacov and his children, or even to Abraham) today also means freedom, civil rights, hope and liberty for Israeli Druze, Circassians and Israeli Arabs -- on a level these minorities have never received in their own Arab lands, or for that matter, in the supposedly free western world! 
Zionism is the long, strong beating heart of being a Jew. Any Jew who disbelieves this is not really a Jew. Any non-Jew who trashes Zionism is merely an anti-Semite. 

Remember, oh Daughter Babylon happy is the one who repays you according to what you have done to us."

  1. “Good Jews don't support Israel”, this was a newspaper headline in England. It could put their lives in danger on the streets of England. In America it is true for different reason. Many America Rabbi’s and Jews have divided minds, half of it supports Israel and other half supports the Palestinians. My question? Supporting Palestinians to do what? Kill more Jews, Israelis or their Arab brothers?
    This is even true with my own brother. Every time I ask him to help support Israel. He responds, “What about the Palestinians?”
    American Jews who love their children unconditionally. Love Israel conditionally only if Israel does and behaves, as they want. If Israel violates this imposed contract these Jews turn to helping the Palestinians who want to kill every Israeli and Jew.
    If you love Israel unconditionally you won’t abandon and betray Israel as many of you have done.

  2. Israel Longhorn Project:
    Standing Up for Israel's Farmers
    I need your help with this. Please Share

    The longer it takes to fund the Israel Longhorn Project, the more ranch land will be stolen, the more farmers and ranchers will go bankrupt and more families and ranchers will be murdered. Once the land is stolen it is almost impossible to get it back, once a life is taken it is impossible to get it back; this is the very land that you bought for Israel through the JNF.

    http://longhornproject.org

    Israeli Ranches are being attacked, their land being stolen and their passive European cattle are being mutilated and killed by local Arabs and by natural predators, wolves and jackals. Israeli European beef cattle are incompatible with Israel’s desert environment. This has resulted in many problems including high calf losses, (as high as 30%). Israel needs desert cattle that fits its environment and can defend it's self and it's calves. That breed of cattle is Texas Longhorn.

    I like guns but for me they are just tools, a tool to protect the cattle and myself. But these cattle have something better, sharp horns. Texas Longhorn cattle can kill and it takes a lot less explaining afterwards then it does if I shoot the SOB.

    Project supports: The Israeli Border Police, the New Shomerim, Israel’s Agriculture Department and the Prime Minister’s office.

    Checks deposited directly into the nonprofit account at Wells Fargo Bank, Belmont, California.

    It is depressing that so few people will help with this.

  3. “It’s Time to Stand Up for Israel”

    The Old West Meets the New Middle East
    Head ‘em up and move ‘em out to Israel!
    501c (3) # 74-3177354

    The Negev’s extreme heat and lack of water create difficult agricultural conditions. Farmland in Galilee is being overrun. Growths of non-native thorn bushes, shrubs and low trees leave farms fallow and create fire hazards that threaten the entire area.

    Advocate Robin Rosenblatt, speaking for the American Israel Texas Longhorn Ecological Project, declared with hopeful confidence that an economical solution to Negev’s hostile and the Galilee’s damaged environments has been found, and it comes right out of the American Old West ---Texas Longhorn cattle. He wants to bring the critters from America to Israel.

    These hardy creatures are highly adaptable to harsh environments. They feed on shrubs, tree leaves and cacti and they can function well in feedlot or range conditions. They have excellent calving and mothering capabilities. They protect their calves from predators and cattle thieves. Longhorn cattle are also highly disease resistant and their average yearly loss rate is as low as 3%.

    To date, Israel has acquired cattle from America and Europe that are not suited to the region’s semi-desert environment. They suffer from a variety of preventable problems including poor mothering skills, birth complications, high losses to predators and cattle thieves, and poor disease resistance – in short, high death rates and low reproduction rates. In some Galilean locations, losses run as high as 30% of the annual calving crop. Israeli cattle producers have tried and failed to improve their cattle’s’ adaptation to the environment.

    Rosenblatt said this research project could benefit Israel, the Middle East, Africa and US cattle producers. Texas Longhorn cattle may represent the solution to restoring the natural environment of the Galilee and developing the Negev. The research, if successful, could also help to boost Israel’s lackluster meat production, decrease fire hazards, increase open space for indigenous animals and tourism, and foster business with United States ranchers. Eventually, benefits would accrue to third world nations who are experiencing similar problems.

    The Israel Longhorn Project is endorsed by the Texas Longhorn Heritage Foundation and operates in conjunction with Israel’s Department of Agriculture. Rosenblatt heads an appeal that is seeking to raise $375,000 to start with and through years 2-5 another $200,000 making the project self-sustainable.
