“They (Diaspora Jews) are Partial Jews, While I am a Complete Jew”…Award-Winning Author, A. B. Yehoshua, March, 2012Written by Marty Roberts on March 21, 2012 – 1:33 pm -
“Israel-ism” vs. “Juda-ism”…Are they really one and the same thing?
Listen to the show…
Israeli author A. B. Yehoshua made some interesting and controversial statements in a speech delivered last week in the U.S. He seriously questions the ability for some one to be a “complete” Jew while still living in the diaspora…A secular, but very Jewish point of view.
On today’s show…
An exploration of A. B. Yehoshua’s speech…What was he saying?…What did he mean?…Why?
Why should Jews live in Israel? (other than the fact that it’s a pretty good place to live, these days)…The Torah-Commandment, religiously observant point of view vs. the purely secular, zionist argument…And what did Ramban (Nachmanides) and other talmudic sages have to say about this issue?
Plus…A. B. Yehoshua and the Holocaust…Was it an unavoidable, tragic event in history, or was the Holocaust a “Jewish failure”?
Also…some comments about the murders of innocent Israeli children and their father in France, an ongoing story…

Jews, especially Israeli Jews, are often criticized for living in the past as “victims”..for not “moving on”.
Well, the past seems to have a way of repeating itself on into the present, and, most likely, the future, as well..

Holocaust monument in Poland vandalized
WARSAW, Poland — Vandals sprayed anti-Semitic graffiti on Holocaust memorials at a former Nazi concentration camp in Poland, desecration that authorities discovered Saturday and are investigating.
Reprinted from The Courier of Montgomery County
Words including “Jude Raus” — German for “Jew Out” — and “Hitler Good!” in English, were found in red paint Saturday on a large monument at the former Plaszow camp near Krakow. A smaller memorial plaque was also painted with a swastika and “Jude Raus.”
The vandalism was discovered a day before a planned memorial march marking the 67th anniversary of the liquidation of Krakow’s ghetto.
