Reader comment on item: Barack Obama and Islam: An Ongoing Saga
in response to reader comment: see my comment to Batya for an explanation and refutation of your rationalization

1. I loved your comments, submitted to Batya, about Jewish Leftists. It is a must and I'll be using it, if you allow me, to debate against those who blame the Jews for all problems in America and everywhere else.Thank You!

2. One point I would like to address yet is that these Jewish leftists are not the only problem- we have also Israelis who come to America who not only forget Israel, but also any respect to other diaspora Jews, amazingly those who support Israel.

I'll not be citing sources of course, but not recently I applied for a Credit to be used (I'll not cite what type of Credit, b/c it will be obvious, what I'm talking about), that helps institutions in Israel and here, for the benefit of Israeli organizations ultimately and their personal pockets, and I was promised many times, in writing that in the near future other organizations would be included as benefited by the system. (they kept playing with emotions, such as it is a duty to belong to this network, for the love you have for Israel- or how come you don't apply, if you say you love Israel).

And I did not need to apply, but did to help Israel.

Since I became their customer (BTW so outstanding that mostly they owe me money, rather than I owe them), never, EVER, what they promised was fulfilled. They still "support" a couple of orgs with our money as their customers, however, it became a mafia- in absence of finding a better word. They kept lying and at some point one of their customer services answered me to stop bothering, for what why their decision is not enough for me to accept and stay quiet?).

I wanted other organizations that not only support Israel, but also help support Jews in the US and protect democracy from the - forgive me the word- Islamist terrorist bestiality, to be included- but NO!!!! They kept saying perhaps yes, good chance yes, but finaly showed their true intentions.

Bottom line is that, it disgusts me to see so many Israelis- living (B'America), that not only forget their identity as Israelis, but also as decent human beings. Why the need to lie?

Another example is Israelis coming to the US to work in high tech companies. We as Jews try IN HEBREW to talk to them, but they have their own group. They do NOT accept us and to be honest, not even show up to Jewish groups in these big high tech companies.

You speak in Hebrew at the University level, but at some point their Hebrew become so complicated as if they do not want you to be with them.I'm just recalling an occasion when I had a meeting.

Once, one of them asked me if I was doing well in the University when taking a second degree in engineering, b/c he was from Technion and with all the problems in Israel, he managed to be good in engineering, getting scholarships, so basically I should be doing better, b/c it would be a shame to study in "such a peaceful place" and basically not be good at least as him- even though I'm not even an American, meaning that English is NOT my first language.

Well, I regretted all those opportunities where I sent $$$ to fund scholarships to Technion. What a sucker!

So, let's not only think about Jewish liberals who forgot their heritage. Let's also think about Israelis who do not give a "drec" to us, other than when they are exploded or need $$$ for their scholarships, to then play "cool" in front of us later on, as if they belong to a superior kind, not needing us at all.

And, I wish none of them in Israel will ever need us anymore, b/c many are really a pain in the behind when asking for $$$$.

Oh, I do not even want to talk about the super religious ones here and in Israel, the text will be too long and the "Drec", as we say in Yiddish, will be too large. "Groice Drec".

Yet, yes, despite all this "drec", still this part of humanity is angel in comparison to ANY Islamist and leftist .

Thanks
