Shabbat Thread

Hi All,

Yes, another week is over and another Shabbat dawns. There is much to pray for this week for the Jewish community  & without : 

  • Diaspora Jews, especially our brothers and sisters in France, Germany, Morocco and Turkey. Dare I say Britain as well? 
  • Our brothers and sisters in Israel 
  • The brave young men and women of the IDF 
  • The war in Gaza
  • Those who have died on all sides
  • The victims of flight MH17
  • The many unknown tradegies that aflict this world, but are not reported in the news or go unreported. 
  • The hopes, fears, personal stresses and worries that we all have, which may seem small to the world, but are important to us and also to Hashem.


As usual this is a time for people to put their own prayers, thoughts, discussions on Torah & whatever else they wish to share. 

May Hashem bless us all. 

Finally a song  (I've put a video in the comments thread) :

Ani ma'amin, 
Be'emuna shelema
Beviat hamashiach ani ma'amin
Beviat hamashiach, ma'amin
Beviat hamashiach ani ma'amin
Beviat hamashiach, ma'amin

Veaf al pi sheyitmahmeha
Im kol zeh, achake loh
Veaf al pi sheyitmahmeha
Im kol zeh, achake loh

Im kol zeh, im kol zeh, achake loh
Achake bechol yom sheyavoh
Im kol zeh, im kol zeh, achake loh
Achake bechol yom sheyavoh

(sof)
Ani ma'amin

English version 

I believe with complete faith
In the coming of the Messiah,

I believe

I believe in the coming of the Messiah
In the coming of the Messiah, I believe
Believe in the coming of the Messiah

And even though he may tarry
Nonetheless I will wait for him
And even though he may tarry
Nonetheless I will wait for him

Nonetheless, I will wait for him
I will wait every day for him to come
Nonetheless, I will wait for him
I will wait every day for him to come

(Ending)
I believe

    Utter shit as usual ! Put yourself in the shoes of the Palestinians ..... heaven forbid. Would you just roll over and die and be oppressed forever by this Pariah state who shrunk you country by stealing it's land and continues to do so. Would you accept you must live in an open prison, you cannot go across any border, you cannot trade but must survive on handouts, your children have no future. You would you really accept all this? .... Rollover and die? Or, Would You Fight For Freedom? Those who think yes, this is the doomed future of the Palestinians can give you whatever label fits with their warped justification to mask their crimes against humanity.

    Some would say Zionists bankers were the original problem through there control of international banking, finance and usury that had brought Germany to it's knees post WW1. Hitler tried to bring down the international banking cartel but didn't succeed. Very similar to what Israel regularly does today against the people in Gaza.

  12. So Free Palestine

    From the back of what cereal box did you learn your lessons in history?

    Some would say Zionists bankers were the original problem ...

    Just out of curiosity, do you think that Zionist and Jew are equivalent terms? Because the people who would have said ... many of whom were hung by the neck until dead ... didn't see much difference.

    ...through there control of international banking, finance and usury ...

    Wait! Don't tell me. The answer is "THE INTERNATIONAL JEWISH CONSPIRACY TO RULE THE WORLD." Am I right?

    ...that had brought Germany to it's knees post WW1...

    There was also that little matter of LOSING WWI and punitive war reparations. Plus the depression. You might have heard of it. Oh, wait. I know the answer. The depression was caused by "THE INTERNATIONAL JEWISH CONSPIRACY TO RULE THE WORLD." And just to target Germany.

    Hitler tried to bring down the international banking cartel but didn't succeed

    Is THAT what he was doing when he herded those children onto cattle cars and shipped them across Europe for several days with no water. He was attacking the banking cartel. Who would have thought that was his real aim? It turns out that Auschwitz was all about interest rates.

    Very similar to what Israel regularly does today against the people in Gaza.

    I must have missed those death camps in the Negev. If Israel was anything like the Nazis, every Palestinian in Gaza would be dead.

    But frankly, I am surprised that would trouble you seeing as admire the Nazis so much.

  13. The offensive posts below have been deleted. We believe in freedom of speech, but stuff like that belongs elsewhere, but not here.

    The can never be peace till the Israel state (note: the Israeli STATE) ceases to exist, and is replace by a single state over the whole pre-1948 area of Palestine, secular, democratic, and completely open to Jews, Muslims and Christians.
    Israel will never agree to that, so there can be no peace

  15. No one is discussing Isis anymore or the mass killing occurring in Iraq or Syria. If Isis gets to kill shias that would be a genocide. But no one is marching again them.why?

    Syria and Iraq are civil wars manipulated for foreign meddling.

    Israel is a colonial regime bent on destroying Palestinians and maintaining their occupation.

    Oh, and Israel claims to be a democracy and is held to that bar.

    ReplyDelete
  17. So if Israel wasn't a democracy then it would be OK to do a bit of ethnic cleansing and slaughter? What a disgusting man you are sir.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Neither will Hamas . Read their charter and what they wish to do to the Jewish and Christian populations of Israel. In fact, if you are allowed to live as a Christian or a Jew in those circumstances it would be one step away from slavery, not a 'secular democratic and open to Jews, Muslims and Christians' fantasy that you have in mind.

    Well said. What do they say about the far left wing being the same as the far right?
