By Rabbi Yonason Goldson
After yesterday's terrorist bus bombing in Jerusalem, the first in years, Jews around the world felt the painful reminder of our precarious place among nations dedicated to our destruction. With the Passover festival approaching, these thoughts from 2005 remind us that Holocaust is not a phenomenon of the last century, or even the last millennium.
The extermination of six million Jews in the Nazi death camps represents but the most recent in a long history of Jewish holocausts. It was preceded by the Chmielnicki massacres in 17th century Poland, the Almohad massacres in 12th century Spain, the Inquisition and the Crusades and the relentless spilling of blood by the Roman legions - all these and similar chapters in the long, brutal history of attempted … [Continue reading...]

Statement by the President on Hanukkah
Tonight, Jews in America, Israel, and around the world come together to light the first candle of the Festival of Lights. At its heart, Hanukkah is about the struggle for justice in the face of overwhelming obstacles.

It renews our commitment as Americans - as people who live by faith and conscience - to lead the way and act as unyielding advocates for the fundamental dignity of every human being.
During these eight days, let us be inspired by the light that can overcome darkness. As we recall the … [Continue reading...]

A highly restricted briefing document on Syria....
President Assad ( who is bad ) is a nasty guy who got so nasty his people rebelled and the Rebels ( who are good ) started winning (hurrah!).
But then some of the rebels turned a bit nasty and are now called Islamic State ( who are definitely bad!) and some continued to support democracy (who are still good.)
So the Americans ( who are good ) started bombing Islamic State ( who are bad ) and giving arms to the Syrian Rebels ( who are good ) so they could fight Assad ( who is still bad ) which was good.
By the way, there is a breakaway state in the north run by the Kurds who want to fight IS ( which is a good thing ) but the Turkish authorities think they are … [Continue reading...]

SENIORS ON FIXED INCOMES DENIED 1% COST OF LIVING INCREASE
The following is a statement by AMAC on the topic of Seniors on fixed incomes being denied a 1% Cost of Living Increase. Interviews upon request. www.amac.us and www.amacfoundation.com
“Fixed income seniors suffer while the Obama administration offers unemployment payments for up to six full months even though it is a clear cut disincentive for job seekers. The administration, it seems, is unwilling to give the jobless the motivation they need to start seeking jobs by cutting back on the government’s unemployment largesse. Yet, hapless retirees and other fixed income Americans may be denied a paltry 1% COLA increase yet again,” according to Dan Weber, president of AMAC (Association of Mature American Citizens).
