Video: A Jewish response to Obama's Cairo speech

On June 4, 2009, President Barack H. Obama delivered a speech in Cairo, Egypt, that contained a distorted view of the Jewish people's historical ties to the land of their forefathers, the land of Israel.

This video is a response. It's excellent (and I actually know Rabbi Chaim Richman). It needs no further comment.

Let's go to the videotape.

Now we're talking.

It is important that this sentiment be heard around the world.

If the Jews will listen, how the rest of the world responds is of no significance.

It's up to us.

Aw man! I wanted that hat tip. I logged onto the site to make sure Carl hadn't posted this yet, only to find that He and Nana are, as always, on their toes.

This is my Rebbe. He got it right.

The truth is always right. People have to hearken to it!

As he said, they turn their backs on (and raise their butts to) the holiest site, not just in the world, but in the universe.

Thanks for the hat tip.

So you actually know Rabbi Richman? He is very impressive.


Sorry about that. ;)

You have a brilliant Rabbi, BTW.

Ytba, in the Torah, there is a good description of what worshippers did in front of the nasty idol, Baal Peor. It seems they took a dump in his honor. With the Muslims, turning their back to G-d is just as much as an affront but you don't see the Jews doing a thing to stop it. The Jews' forebears wouldn't have tolerated it!

Yeah, I know. That was it's "service." My Rabbi in Baltimore told us a story, I think from the Talmud, about a Rabbi who needed to relieve himself, and when he was done he thought he'd be clever and so he used the idol as a substitute for toilet paper, not realizing that was how it was worshiped. Someone who regularly worshiped said trinket saw him and later told him that was the most sincere devotion to the idol he had ever seen. Ouch!
