Quote Of The Day

"I have written this book primarily for my own people, lest the Jew forget again - as he so disastrously forgot in the past - this simple truth: that there are things more precious than life, and more horrible than death."

-From "The Revolt" by Menachem Begin

One of my heroes. I stood for a long time at his grave when I was in Israel a few years ago.

He was a man who truly loved the Jewish people, and lived his life accordingly. We owe him a debt of gratitude.

interesting thought but our leaders tend to forget history

Of course our leaders forget history, it makes them look bad in front of the Eropeans, who as everyone knows are the smartest most peaaefull people who ever lived and we Jews must imitate them in every way possible, so that someday we may recieve the highest possible compliment, to be mistaken for a European goy, possibly from Italy or Spain (I don't know many Jews who can pass for Norweigian).

see you added UO to your fine jews list. Since I turned you on to him, does that rate me being added to your fine jews list?
What is the qualification of a fine jew?

Chainik Hocker: Thank you for stopping by. Your satirical comment is right on target. I would suggest that Jews hate themselves even more, so that we may receive the absolute highest compliment of all: To be mistaken for a french gentile, or perhaps even a German nazi.

Happy: The Jewish Freak will be honored to add you to the list. Welcome aboard!

Freethoughtmom: I am impressed by your interest in a genuine Jewish hero. There is so much to say, I don't even know where to start.
Menachem Begin fought the corrupt and unjust British Mandate rule in "Palestine" prior to the founding of the Jewish state. He remained in the political opposition in his own country until 1977 when he became Prime minister running as the head of the Likud party established by Ariel Sharon. He is most well known for signing a peace treaty with Egypt in 1979, and for the contoversial Lebanon war in 1982. The later years of his life were marked by unconsolable grief as a result of Jewish casualties in the Lebanon war as well as the death of his wife which ultimately led to his own death from a broken heart. Great men however, are rarely afforded the luxury of easy lives.
