THE ELEPHANT AND THE JEWISH QUESTION

My friend Rena calls it 'The Elephant and the Jewish Question'. You know, when out of the blue, it's always our fault.

Here is today's newest...from the Jerusalem Post. A HOLOCAUST CARTOON CONTEST...DONTCHA JUST LOVE IT???

Moroccan wins first place in Iran Holocaust cartoon contest
By The Associated Press

Meant to be a response to the
Danish cartoons of Islam's Prophet Mohammed that sparked rage among Muslims around the world, the exhibit appears inspired by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's tirades calling for Israel to be destroyed.



Now what in blazes does this have to do with us, I naively asked. Are we Danish? Was the Danish newspaper Jewish? Ahhhh, a little voice inside answered...it's the Elephant and the Jewish question. Happens every time. Sorta like Murphy's law...when all else fails "blame the Jews".

Abdollah Derkaoui received $12,000 for his work depicting an Israeli crane
piling large cement blocks on Israel's security wall and gradually obscuring
Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. A picture of Nazi Germany's Auschwitz concentration camp appears on the wall.
Nice...and look at all those green dollars he got. His mama must be so proud. First Prize!

Carlos Latuff from Brazil and A. Chard from France jointly won the second prize
of $8,000 and Iran's Shahram Rezai received $5,000 for third place.

Like I said...big bucks.

The Tehran daily Hamshahri, a co-sponsor of the exhibition, said it
wanted to test the West's tolerance
for drawings about the Nazi killing
of 6 million Jews in World War II. The entries on display came from nations
including United States, Indonesia and Turkey.

I get it. It's a test!

Well, get this Mr. Ahmadinejad...THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IS NOT A MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTION!!!

A friend sent me this site. Try it...you'll like it...reduces stress...go ahead you know you want to. AHHHHHH...didn't I tell you?

I get real tired of all the weird junk going on in this world.it seems none of us are really safe lately.people all over are getting odd.you have to be careful who you get too close to.even here in my apartment,you have to stay to your self or they use you as their dayly talk fest.when I was a kid this world was a wonderful place to live.you could play and not worry about much but a tornado or storms,or if someone would help you get your harvest in.your family stuck by you and the people around you came to visit.you could walk down the road as a kid and not be afaid some waco would pick you up and kill you or rape you.you could trust most people if they said they would do some thing they kept their word.kids could go to school and not have to fear their couch or teachers you could trust most policemen.now days you can,t tell who your enemys are by looking at them.this world is getting too unsafe for me.years ago our borders kept us pretty much safe.but now we are setting ducks to.we use to learn from the past so we didn,t have to go though it again.but now it seems no one looks at past mistakes and learns anything.if this world ever needed to trust in God and his pertective hand its now!!!people are getting too strange for me.I heard some young man was shot by one of those tazers the police use.they shot him two times cause he was yelling he wanted Jesus.he was carrying his bible.guess he was not calming down so they shot him.now that is getting pretty weird.when my husband had his frist break down he was saying the same thing.so if he had been out some where he could have gotten shot!! what is going on now days?are people losing their minds?the worlds since of hummer is getting too dark for me.once someone said the world was too full of poeple and they were gald that one 3rd of them would be destoryed. I said that sounds good unless your part of the one 3rd!!! he looked at me and got this horrified look on his face.if one nation is getting odd things said about it then all of us need to be careful.cause one day it could be us.we need to stand with each other and make sure we all come out of this mess ok!!!this lady would like to see a peaceful time for us all.Iam looking for the Lords return.Jesus said there would be real peace then.the false peace comes before that.a man will come out and look like he has all the answers but he will not be what every one thinks he is.he will make a peace treaty with the east and look like he cares about them.but 3 and one half years later he will show his true colors.he is the one Jesus talked about.the one who will stand in the temple and say he is God.every thing is leading up to that time.but it seems no one is even seeing the way things are going.the bible is being played out in the news papers and on TV every day.Jesus said when you see these signs look up for your redemption draws near.stay safe and shalom on the streets and in homes in Jerusalem.

Good post. Sometimes I struggle to believe mankind can be so mean and evil. Then we have a contest like this to prove me wrong . . . yet again.

I really like the stress reliever. I'm going to take it wherever I go (I have a laptop).

Take care.
