OK, so by now many of you have seen this video of Oklahoma State Rep. Dennis Johnson (R-Duncan), in which he he uses the expression "Jew down the price."
I don't even have to do a search in order to know for certain that Jews around the United States are in outrage. The Anti-Defamation League[ADL] which I like to refer to as the Arab Defense League, is no doubt foaming at its proverbial mouth.Yes, it's 2013, and people like this still exist. This guy probably did not even think anything of it, or maybe he did. Yet, what short memories my brothers and sisters have. It is as if they think things are going to change. But, they're not.
Why on earth do Jews still think they are supposed to live in a country like this?? The standard of living? The relative safety? None of that matters.
The U. S. is not your country. It is the country of your TEMPORARY exile. Sure, after 2,000 years of being in exile, it is so easy for us to forget this, and many of us unfortunately have. But, but by the Grace of The Holy One, Blessed Be He, you are now able to come back to your ONLY true homeland, Eretz Yisra'el, the Land of Israel. And, now is time to come home.
Rep. Johnson is not the threat. His comments are neither here nor there. Stop wasting your time and energy getting into a hissy fit over such people, and what they say.
Just remember the old children's rhyme, and you can't go wrong:
"Sticks and stones may break our bones, but bombs and internment camps will kill us. And God put people like Rep. Johnson on earth, in order to warn us."
Now, go pack your bags and get on the plane.
