Not all Jews are Einsteins…or the Rebbe
Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Jack Engelhard

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/17/2017 5:03:00 AM

There are a thousand reasons why I loved the Rebbe. Alongside his warmth and Torah wisdom, he was also sagely up to the minute on politics. Somewhere on YouTube (can’t find it now) I heard him talking about the “peace process” – the one from about 20 years ago – and decrying it with such passion and precision that it made you wonder why others can’t see things so clearly. I guess it’s because the Rebbe was the Rebbe just like Einstein was Einstein. The Rebbe said (quoting from the top of my head): “Israel is ready to give up holy Land

Good take on the latest Ayrab treachery, with dependable assistance from the snakes in the UN. And, FTA: ´Which always means the Jews give and the Arabs take and get no thanks and no peace. That’s the peace process in a nutshell.´ Kinda sounds like the Rs and Ds version of bipartisanship in our gov´t, doesn´t it?

"The Rebbe"? Not Jewish, never lived in NYC, too far out of that loop to even know what this refers to. Ultimately, don´t care much, what this reference is.

I checked out The Rebbe here: http://www.chabad.org/therebbe/article_cdo/aid/244372/jewish/The-Rebbe-A-Brief-Biography.htm

I read all of Isaac Bashevis Singer´s books years ago--wonderfully entertaining and interesting--and he reminds me of those characters a bit.

#2, the Rebbe, refers to Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, pretty much the key founder of the Chabad Lubavitch movement in Judaism.

They are orthodox, very Republican, and quite open to Nazarines and bringing back lost "reform" Jews to Judaism.

Wonderful man. Great teacher.

#4, Ok, thanks. I figured it was some sort of inside Judaism reference. Since I am not Jewish and have never lived in an area with a high concentration, I am fairly ignorant. I am somewhat used to the NYC-centric TV shows rattling off various Jewish and Yiddish phrases and references which just go over my head.

Doctors have warned that plans for "brutal " NHS cuts are shrouded in secrecy and will cause uproar once revealed. The British Medical Association (BMA) says health service leaders have refused to publish details of the proposals that could extend waiting times, reduce access to services, cut down on prescriptions and treatments, and even merge or close hospitals and facilities. The proposals are being discussed under the capped expenditure process - which was introduced this year to cap NHS spending in some areas in order to meet so-called "control total" budgets in 2017/18. The BMA submitted Freedom of Information requests

Pakistan´s Supreme Court on Friday disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from public office over long-running corruption allegations, a decision that ousts him from the premiership for the third time in a chequered political career. ´He is disqualified as a member of the parliament so he has ceased to be holding the office of Prime Minister,´ Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan told the packed courtroom in Islamabad. As the verdict was announced opposition supporters erupted in applause, rushing into the street chanting slogans and handing out sweets in celebration. The decision brings to an unceremonious end Sharif´s third term in power, roughly one year before

SEOUL - Amid concern that North Korea might conduct another intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test, tension is running high on the Korean Peninsula, with experts warning that Pyongyang may be preparing to launch an upgraded version of a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM). Citing a United States defence official, CNN reported on Thursday (July 27) that the North conducted a missile ejection test on Tuesday at a naval shipyard in Sinpo, South Hamkyong Province, where North Korea is thought to have repositioned submarines and barges used for an SLBM test in August last year. The lift-off was designed to test the "cold-launch" system,

THE US House of Representatives has approved legislation to provide £1.2billion ($1.6billion) down payment to start building a wall on along the Mexican border. The border wall, one of Mr Trump´s key pledges during his election campaign, has caused huge controversy. Despite claiming the wall would cost around £9.6billion ($12billion) during his victorious election campaign, a report has estimated it is set to cost up to £17.3billion ($21.6billion). The bill passed 235-192 in the House, with most of the votes along party lines. It comes as the House of Representatives approved a £52billlion ($68billion) military build up next year. The US President has claimed that

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., stepped up his own rhetoric as President Trump continued his one-sided feud with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a move that has put the president at odds with Republicans in Congress. ´If Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay,´ Graham warned Thursday, during an interview with CNN. ´This is not draining the swamp, what he´s interjecting is turning democracy upside down,´ the South Carolina Republican added. Members of Trump´s own party have voiced their displeasure with the president throughout the week, as he´s talked smack on the attorney general during interview and on Twitter.

Seven beaches in Atlantic City alone were closed. The series of shutdowns come after three beaches were closed for water quality issues Tuesday. Environmental officials say heavy rains that result in runoff water containing chemicals and bird droppings is responsible for the spike in bacteria. Atlantic County public health officer Patricia Diamond tells the Press of Atlantic City (http://bit.ly/2u15YUp ) heavy rainfall on consecutive days puts a burden on the ocean.

On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information.

Imran Awan was arrested as he attempted to flee the U.S. after wiring approximately $300,000 to Pakistan. Fox News is the only cable network covering this huge scandal. When Imran Awan was arrested he was carrying $12,000 in cash on him. His wife was carrying $12,000 of cash when she fled the country too.

The moderator lauded Michelle Obama for her achievements over the past eight years and touched on the former first lady’s plans, but Tuesday’s conversation also veered into uncomfortable territory. It was Obama’s largest public appearance since the 2016 election — speaking in front of more than 8,000 people at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary celebration — and she touched on personal attacks that she faced again and again. Many had the same theme. “The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Obama said, according to the Denver Post. “Knowing that after eight

President Trump responded to the Senate Republican´s inability to pass a skinny version of Obamacare´s repeal the only way he knows how: Twitter. (Tweet) Senate Republicans weren´t able to muster enough votes to pass their skinny repeal of Obamacare. Senators voted 49-51 shortly before 2:00 a.m. Friday morning. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) cast a surprise "no" vote. He was joined by GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine). The bill, titled the Health Care Freedom Act, would have repealed the individual insurance mandate. It would also have repealed the employer mandate for eight years.

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law. And as to those transgender soldiers already serving openly, any effort

Let’s review a few recent developments. Last week, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, resigned. This was part of a “White House shakeup” to get the Trump administration back on track. The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

NEW YORK — The Boy Scouts’ chief executive apologized Thursday to members of the scouting community who were offended by the aggressive political rhetoric in President Donald Trump’s recent speech to the Scouts’ national jamboree. The apology came in a statement from Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh, three days after Trump’s speech to nearly 40,000 scouts and adults gathered in West Virginia. Other U.S. presidents have delivered nonpolitical speeches at past jamborees. To the dismay of many parents and former scouts, Trump, a Republican, promoted his political agenda and derided his rivals, inducing some of the scouts in attendance to
