Jews stand Alone? Good stands Alone?

I am so done with these blogs that are trying to fight against islamization of the world.  Though I do think its
happening. I have to realize at the end of the day its Edom battling Ishmael and none of my business. Trying to get involved on either is ....demoralizing.

Better to just watch from the sidelines and not comment or get involved real or virtual.  Anyway, isn't both Edom and Ishmael supposed to team up and come after us in the end of times?

Shabbat Shalom Miriam,
I understand where you're coming from but sometimes I just have to speak up.I went to a story on the Huffington Post about an interracial couple being refused membership in a church in Kentucky and for some reason a Jew hater commented that Jews advocated marrying only other Jews and no one accused them of being racist.This same commentator said a little later that Israel didn't allow Muslims to be citizens!

Well even though I knew it was a waste of time to try to inform a hater,I had to speak up.I feel that most Jews would just skip over him and not bother to reply,but that gives these haters the feeling that they are right,when they are 100% wrong!


I wanted to say that where I live on the days that welfare money and some other kinds of money(maybe it's for the children in the family)is doled out,my local post office looks like a Beduin city!They are in the majority and they are sure enough citizens of Israel!Most of them are veiled and do you know they look at me as if I am something strange!

I didn't go into all that but I did say that they couldn't pick up their welfare payments if they weren't citizens of Israel.

I see that I have a reply to my post and I don't even want to open it.I'm not interested in arguing.In regards to the anti jihad sites.I go to a couple,but only comment on one and so far no one has argued with me,because most are Christians and support Israel.
I have a serious problem with the tone of the blog because it is so anti-Muslim and sometimes they include Blacks,Mexicans and do a lot of talk about standing up for white men and women.Also the names they call President Obama and Michelle are very offensive to me.

I go away for a couple of weeks and then I start up again,but I do notice that my posts are starting to be not as nice as they once were.

I don't want to be a hater.I do want to be informed,and I can say that I've gotten quite an education!.

There is a part of me that wants to believe that there is a part of Edom -Edomite land/people -that is good.

But sometimes it gets really hard to see that.

At times, i've listen to people rant about Islam, and I can undersetand what they are saying, but then they get into, "muslims are ugly" and then I don't know what to say.

ANd they don't mean it as in, based on their actions they are ugly, they mean it as in their facial features, etc. It really stops me in my tracks because then I don't understand if they hate Islam and the things Islam wroughts into the world, or are they just being their typical hateful self looking for a divide and conquer routine to do between me and the muslim.

In a particular anti Islam blog, I couldn't believe the comment section. These people were spewing unadulterated, in your face, racism. Thankfully, I haven't had so so much exposure to real, hard core racism, so this was a big slap in the face. I couldn't believe my eyes!

I think in the end, the "West" try to create laws so that people can live peacefully and make money -which is what its all about over there, but deep down, in their hearts... well, thank G-d for their laws is all I can say.

As you can probably tell, i'm a bit hurt and frazzled by it all. Almost totally lost faith in the West. Not really sure what to think. There are always these spin doctors on the ready to sway folks into thinking x is not all that bad. but sometimes I feel more and more secure in relying on the old sags (tannaim)who were weary about Edom. They knew.

I think I also need to "go away for a couple of weeks" from these sites.

I don't want to drink their poison and be like them. I feel so tempted to retaliate with equally hateful words. But alas, what's the point.
