To my friends and readers:
Tonight at sundown, the Jewish holiday of Passover begins. We Jews celebrate our freedom from slavery in Egypt and also our eventual receipt of the Torah from G-d via Moses and Mount Sinai as well as our eternal land, Israel. I will be out of blog commission for the next two days, but I’ve prepared timely stuff in advance which will be posted in my absence, so please come back. I’ll return on Wednesday Night, and will post one or two more things tonight before my Seder begins. I’ll be celebrating Passover and having my Seders with a friend who is not only an Orthodox Jew, but a descendant of Ulysses S. Grant (from his father’s side of the family who were not Jewish). Very cool, right?

As I’ve noted many times on this site in the past, 80% of the Jews remained slaves in Egypt. Egypt Syndrome preceded the modern Stockholm Syndrome, as most of the Jews enjoyed their captivity of hard labor, gazillionth class citizenship, and a lack of spirituality and faith in G-d. Today, a similar 80% of American Jews are still living in slavery of the mind. They voted for Obama (twice!) and continue to pander to our enemies in Islam and the left, both of whom would destroy us, like the Egyptians wanted to. (There are also Jews on the right who refuse to take a critical look at anti-Israel Republicans like Darrell Issa and crazy, destructive nutjobs like Rand Paul who would cripple our fight against Islamic terrorists on U.S. soil and abroad and yet want to make dangerous illegal aliens into U.S. citizens).
As I’ve noted, there are many Jewish people who are still slaves in Egypt mentally. They try desperately to please Jew-hating Muslims and anti-Semites. They are not proud of who they are. They’ve never been taught the beauty and spirituality of full observance of Judaism. And, thus, they will never be free. Their politics also enslave them, and they, sadly, pass this on to their children. Egypt Syndrome preceded the modern Stockholm Syndrome, and it has been passed on from generation to generation for some.
I am proud I am not like them. Tonight, as with Jews around the world, I will participate in the Seder, the traditional Passover ceremonial feast, in which we remember not only what slavery in Egypt was like and what it was like to be freed, but also that there are those who would destroy the Jewish people in every generation, including this one. As I’ve noted on this site oh so many times, those people are now the Muslims that surround us and who seek to destroy not just the Jews, but also the Christians around the world. They are also my liberal fellow co-religionists and the liberal Christians who defend and promote these Muslims. To me, they are far worse because without them, we’d be able to defeat the problem. Yes, there are also fools like Pharoahbama. But like the ancient Pharoahs of Egypt, he and his ilk will disappear and new, even more dangerous bad actors will appear and do even more harm. Heck, even Iran’s Ahmadinejad is term-limited, but there will be another choice of the ayatollahs to take his place and do the same madman’s bidding.
Tonight, I’ll also be celebrating my freedoms, including my free speech and to continue to bring you this site, as I celebrate Passover with the CAIR Action Network lawsuit against me hanging over my head now after more than two years, and continued attempts by CAIR Action Network and other Muslims to silence me. I also have had, over the last year, new Muslim death, rape, and torture threats, which the FBI investigated but which the politically correct Justice Department declined to prosecute. And you know about the Nazis from Ohio now targeting me. So, I will celebrate my freedom with extra gusto on this first night of Passover.
I’ve written about Passover many times in years past (see also here and here), and you can read even more details here, here, and here. I need not repeat them here, other than the Debbie’s Notes version: We celebrate Passover for 8 days. We hold two Seders (one in Israel)–one for each of the first two nights. We cannot eat bread or anything leavened for the entire eight days. We also can’t eat stuff that, back in the day (and currently) could be made into flour, like corn, many nuts, peas, beans, etc. We have to buy special food (I spent more in the last two days than I spend on food in more than a month), including special soda. Coke and Pepsi make us what is essentially the Mexican version of their soda pops, as it does not contain corn syrup. We can’t eat any food with corn syrup on Passover.
To my Jewish readers, I wish you a Happy and Kosher Passover. To my gentile readers, I hope you will enjoy the stuff I’ve written for while I’m away. Again, I will post one or two more things before the holiday begins tonight.
See ya back live Wednesday Night. Ya’ll come back now, ya hear.
