Dear Sara,

I'm so sorry for my error, and I thank you for your correction.

When I wrote about "our own people," I was really thinking of the Assassination of Yitzhak Rabin by Yigal Amir, a former Hesder student and far-right law student at Bar-Ilan University.

My mind races ahead of my typing finger(s) [one or two]. The tragic murder of Rabin by a fellow Jew I consider a shameful act inconsistent with one of our Ten Commandment: "Thou Shall Not Kill; however, I was also thinking that we are in need of a Chutzpah Jew like our Rabbi Kahane, who was also assassinated.

Recall that Alan Dershowitz was popularly associated with Chutzpah, which of course received much currency as a result of his 1991 title of his book by that same term - nevertheless, when it comes to Chutzpah in defense of Jews, Dershowitz did not replace Kahane, and the Jewish Defense League took a severe blow with the death of Rabbi Kahane.

Rabin was a credit to both Israel and our Jewish people. But in my view, today, with the rise of the the so-called "New Antisemitism" it is a Kahane who we need. The good news is that we have Bibi, the son of a father - Benzion Netanyahu, was also a Historian (if you know what I mean). And so, regarding Israelis policy decisions by Bibi, I find them to be very well informed by strategic historical events - for example, the timely demand that Israel be recognized in accordance with the Nationalism of the Jewish people, irrespective of their Religious beliefs; this is what Zionism is, the Nationalism of the Jewish people, no less worthy than that of any other people who live under their Nations Sovereign State. Something, whoever, which the Presbyterians of America particularly fail to understand. And I explain this failure in understanding by remembering the prideful resistance of the great American Malcolm X, who struggle valiantly to demand the rights of African Americans when the Civil Rights American Revolution was still in progress in the 1960's.

The deligitimazation of Zionism by American Presbyterians that is now officially expressed in a 2014 74p. "Zionism Unsettled A Congregational Study Guidepamphlet" http://www.israelpalestinemissionnetwork.org/main/component/content/article/70/256-zionism-unsettled should remind everyone of the time when Racism was denied against African American when a "white man" said he wasn't a Racist because "some of my best friends are [fill in this space].

As the Jew Jesus was executed by the Roman political establishment in Israel, so Presbyterian Americans now wish all Jews in Israel to live among the Arab Palestinians in the hope that under their polity Jews will not suffer another Holocaust. Of course, Palestinans aren't Syrians or Iraqi, right, contrary to the ISIS, or ISIL - where the "L" stands for the Levant..

The Presbytarians have the Chutzpah to tell the Jews in Israel that they should be "Christian" (like the Jew Jesus) and effectively have faith that the Hamas-Fatah Palestinians will not Crucifiy the Israelis Jews the way the Sunnis and Shia'a Islamists in Syrian and Iraq are currently "Crucifying" one another - just a bit north of Israel. And of course, the current kidnapping of three Jewish boys as, 16, 16, and 19, years of age isn't the Crucification of Jews - OK, Abbas called them "Human Beings, just like us." but its his very own brethren who have apparently done this. And we can only hope they are alive.

In fact, Palestinian perfected the Jihadist act of suicide bombing - but that's just a reaction to Jews taking up residence outside the Pale of Settlement established by the undemocratic world of failed states, through the UN and called "International Law. Well, even National Socialism was a land of Laws (against the Jews) which the Christian world tolerated. Anybody know about the Bermuda Conference of 1943? The wonderful, Christian Presbyterians did NOTHING to save the Jews - and it was only in 1948 (that's like a Five-Year-Plan) that the Zionist state of Israel was established. If anyone is to be blamed for the plight of the of the "Catastrophe" Palestinians, it includes these very same Presbyterians who themselves kept the doors of the United States closed - the only initial exception being Catholic dictator Trujillo of the Dominican Republic. Anyone know why?
