The German Consulate in New York hosted an event this evening commemorating the anniversary with a panel discussion that included representatives of ARSP (Action Reconciliation Service for Peace), a German non-profit that sends volunteers to work with Holocaust survivors.
In remarks before the panel discussion, an Israeli official said that Germany and Israel together were “repairing the world” and “making the world a better place.”
Among the 10 milestones noted by the panel, in the German/Israeli reconciliation, was #3 Germany providing Israel with nuclear capable submarines in 1957, which was against German law.
In activities such as this, that focus on “remembrance and lessons” from the Holocaust, a blind spot often exists, as the Germans are presented (even by themselves) as the sole perpetrators, and the Jews as the sole victims — who maintain they have nothing to be “ashamed” of. And yet an honest reading of history reveals plenty of Jewish culpability (Marxist and Zionist) for both World Wars, and reasons to be ashamed, up to the present day, with the wiping of Palestine off the map.
One panelist said: “Forgiveness is not a concept for Israelis.”
We would suggest that people who cannot forgive others, or seek forgiveness for themselves (especially with nukes in their hands), are in no position to “repair the world.”
After ‘liberating’ the Philippines from Spain in 1898, the U.S. stayed and fought a war against the Filipinos and hasn’t really left the area since. The 2014 Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) along with corrupt politicians, has kept the Philippines from dealing organically with its neighbors, while the U.S. uses it as a pawn against China.
U.S. involvement in the Pacific Rim (including American banker Jacob Schiff’s funding of Japan’s war against Russia in 1904-05) led to two World Wars, the Communist takeover of China in 1949, and some would say a Third World War — already underway.
Americanized Catholics have time and again opted for the darkness of American Foreign Policy over the light of the Gospel.
An honest person following events in Syria and Ukraine knows the U.S. is the black hand in both situations, and the greatest threat to peace and stability in the world today. Most troubling are Catholics (going back to U.S. Cardinal Gibbons snubbing Pope Benedict XV’s attempt to end WWI) who have appeased and even supported America’s treachery.
At the Celebrate Israel Parade in NYC today, one is reminded that the followers of the religion of the Old Testament, who after rejecting their Redeemer, have tried to make themselves new and into the redeemers of the world.
The Modern State of Israel is not leading the Jewish people to maturity in the Lord (commensurate with the gifts they’ve been given), but rather to infantilism and absurdity, that ultimately undermines their fulfillment and that of the World.
The best hope for Jews, to grow-up and be new and have peace in their hearts, is to unite themselves with the true Redeemer and the New Covenant — so the Heavenly Father may be all in all.
On this the 67th anniversary of the proclamation of the Modern State of Israel, we note that history has shown the ‘seekers of justice’ to have been unjust before God and man. The Modern State of Israel is far from the House of Israel (People of God).
The best hope for Jews and the world is to remember true freedom and fulfillment come from being united with the Lord — and His New Covenant, which has been in effect for 2000 years.
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which shall be shed for you. But behold the hand of him who betrays me is with me at table. For the Son of Man indeed goes his way, as it has been determined; yet woe to that man by whom he will be betrayed.” Luke 22: 20-22
“Behold the days are coming, saith the Lord, when I shall make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah, unlike the covenant I made with their fathers on the day I held them by the hand to bring them out of the Land of Egypt, which covenant of mine they broke, although I was their husband. But this is the covenant I shall make with them after those days, saith the Lord: I shall put my Law within them, in their hearts will I write it, and I shall be their God, and they shall be my people.” Jeremiah 31:31-33 (2500 years ago)
The new household of Israel calls its members to a transformation of heart — recognizing that the just way to treat one’s neighbor is to respect and serve them — not exploit and dominate them.
Could it be that CGI donors, like the House of Saud, influenced American foreign policy, with respect to regime change efforts in Syria, Egypt and Libya? We think so. Why else would they give money to the Clintons? Not to help children.
In 2013 LE asked a CGI rep what commitments they had for Syrian refugees — the ones that Hillary helped to create. He never got back to us.

In a March 8, 2015 Wall Street Journal Op-ed, A Better World Ruled by Women, Dr. Melvin Konner writes: “There is every reason to think that a future national hierarchy staffed and led by women who no longer have to imitate men, dealing with other nations similarly transformed, would be less likely to go to war. But that’s not all. Sex scandals, financial corruption and violence are all overwhelmingly male.”
Many people are taking such infantile thinking seriously and further impoverishing men and women through egoism, rather than seeking to be healthy together. Ironically, healthy well-adjusted women would not seek or even tolerate national hierarchies, staffed and led exclusively by women. Such silliness is the province of misguided persons, with identity issues, who should not be teaching at universities or leading nations.

That 90% of Congress showed up for Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech, seeking to multiply the discord in the region, is testimony to the level of corruption and darkness that pervades Washington.
The methods and practices of the ‘Jewish’ State, a state built on terror (see Stern Gang), are finding new expression in IS (Islamic State), with the U.S. providing support in both cases.
