    I received a request to sign a petition to urge the UN to give to Israel as well as Lebanon. Do these things really help?
    Subject: Fw: UN Resolution
    Date: Thu, 17 Aug 2006

    Please sign this petition to the UN. Resolution 1701 managed to provide compensation to Lebanon for damage suffered from the war, but ignored Israel’s damages from Hizballah rockets. The petition requires fair treatment for Israel. WE MUST DO THIS – AND QUICKLY. Please sign and circulate this Petition.

    Please click on the link and sign, and forward it to everyone on your list. Thank you.

    “When we merit it, He suppresses the tendency somewhat, and we have some limited tranquility. Apparently, at times He shuts off the spigot, even among previous enemies.”

    I can’t entirely agree with this view. What happened to the notion of of free will? If a non-Jew who is a Pole and/or a Christian, or anyone else, chooses to reject the terrible legacy of his group and even behave positively toward Jews, that person deserves our full respect, and his behavior shouldn’t be assigned (solely) to G-dly intervention. (I realize that free will and intervention can co-exist, as in the famous chazal – “the Jews had to be punished, but YOU didn’t have to be the one to carry it out”, but if this is what’s intended, it should be made clear.)

    I am a Catholic, and pray for Israil and her people every evening. A German Catholic. My faith taught us to love one another. I find it hard to love those who love to kill us, and will have to answer to g-d for that sin.

    This is not about the Jew…it is about the G-d of the Jews. Who wrote the Ten Commandments with his own finger. Saddam looks like the fulfillment of the prophecy in Revelation 9:11 THE DESTROYER….and Daniel 7:25 says he will again seek to destroy the law and “times”. Satan wants to destroy those that love G-d.and His Laws.

    IF Saddam Hussein does NOT DIE, he will become “converted” and seek to destroy G-d’s Children by urging everyone to worship on SUNDAY. He is the antichrist…G-d alone can kill his created angel…Lucifer…

    The JEW is not who Satan want’s to destroy…He wants his throne to sit above G-d’s throne in Heaven. G-d is stronger than the devil! G-d is trying our “faith” to see if we love and obey Him because we love Him?

    Jew’s who act like Jesus…have been asked to obey G-d…because we love the father who gives us the Ten Commandments…that are the expression of His Character…of love.

    It is not the JEWS the devil hates….it is that we worship G-d who threw him out of heaven…because he was jealouse…of G-d and wanted to be superior…

    You have preserved G-d’s LAW….with patience….and now….we all become eager to see G-d deal with SATAN….and go home…
    sincerely, connie

    UN resolution.
    I am surprised at the one sided offer from Kofi Annan to only help the lebanese people in thei reconstruction. What about those Israelis, have not they suffered damages!! Just outrageous.

  8. H says:

    The aid for those affected in Lebanon is largely in competition with that from Iran/Hezbollah so as not to further lose the hearts and minds of Lebanese citizens and to bolster the so-called democratic Lebanese govetnment. There is no such motivation re: those affected in Israel. I think this explains a large part of what we are seeing rather than overt/covert anti-Semitism.

  9. Bobbye Myers says:

    I, too, would like to sign any petition to the UN that would show support for Israel in any way. Please pass website where petition is available.

    We are exhorted by G-d to bless Israel knowing that the acts of love shown to His beloved will not be ignored but rather abundantly blessed. The priorities are therefore abundantly clear; with those grafted into the Commonwealth of Israel having opportunity to be partakers of these blessings as well, for their love for the apple of His eye.

  12. Emmanuel Dillon Daniel says:

    In my own capacity,I will stress that the Jews deserve to be assisted,I am mostly concerned about the Jews based on the facts that almost everyone on earth is happy when the Jews are down.Here in South Africa,I think the only person who sympathises with the Jews are just a few minority. The UN should use balanced initiatives to resolve the disputes and an urgent arrangement be made to support our brothers and sisters in both northern and Eastern Israel. And for the last time,the world and the muslims shoud bear it in their minds that everyone is not against the Jews.

  13. Ralph Gerber says:

    …it was said that one should become small in the eyes of man–it is only then that he or she will become that much greater in the eyes of G-d…this homily (written by a CHRISTIAN theologian, no less–go fig) is simply another reason to remind us of our need to depend on G-d and less on the fickle tenderness of our fellow man… Israel, if only for that reason alone, will endure…
