Passover 2014: Jewish People Celebrated Freedom While We Still Have It

By Debbie Schlussel

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. I’ll be celebrating Passover and having my Seders with friends. Check out my pictures of Jewish American soldiers celebrating Passover in World Wars I and II (here, here, and here–on the war-front at the Battle of Anzio).

As I’ve noted many times on this site in the past, 80% of the Jews remained slaves in Egypt., just like nearly 80% of Jews voted for Obama. Same difference, right? Well, pretty close in the mindset. 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. Yup, 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 was term-limited, but his replacement, Rouhani, was just yet another choice of the ayatollahs to take his place and do the same madman’s bidding.


Passover Matzoh

Tonight, I’ll also be celebrating my freedoms, including my free speech and to continue to bring you this site, as Muslims, liberals, and Jew-hating Poles constantly try to silence me, with death threats and other hate mail. 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.

Passover is the one Jewish holiday on which one is commanded to only eat fresh rather than processed foods.

That’s why one spends more money on Passover than on any other Jewish holiday: eggs, fresh meat, natural drinks, cola without high fructose corn syrup, honey, jams and jellies made with real sugar, fish and cheese allow one to really enjoy it.

Freedom is freeing ourselves from the material and spiritual leavens of the world and the idols all around us and thanking the author of our freedom G-d and in re-telling the story of how the Jews with His help, left Egypt.

There is so much more to do. And freedom for Jews still remains largely an ideal rather than a practical reality. That said, Passover remains a holiday one always worth commemorating because one day, the Jewish people will be truly free indeed!

Chag Sameach Pessah!

Passover is one of the greats ????

Also, April 15 at 3 am is the first of Four Blood Moons. It is no coincident that it occurs on Passover.

God bless

Happy Passover, Debbie!

The Jews you describe will disappear in a generation or two. Don’t waste your time on them. These obsessive leftist liberals will marry into other faiths and show how advanced they are socially and morally by stopping to circumcise their male offsprings. The center of the Hebrew nation has shifted to Israel. True, we have our own self-hating leftist liberals here – a loathsome anomaly mostly populating our academic institutions – but they read Hebrew and write in Hebrew, and their circumcised sons will know to which people they belong.

Even though I don’t believe in a god, there are some good lessons to be learned from Passover.

Too many people have forgotten to be their own leaders and often look for strongmen on which to depend for order and sanity. Sadly, most of these men would barely pass for being sane themselves.

This isn’t about being free as it is being a sane, rational human being. As much as we value freedom, we should also be honest with ourselves and others and to accept accountability for our deeds.

Passover is about rejecting tyranny, accepting ourselves and overcoming great odds to create and maintain an identity.

Sadly, as Debbie has mentioned, there are people still maintaining a slave/ghetto/concentration camp/dayenu mentality, either being silent, siding with the enemy or or blindly accept authority or fate, no matter how detrimental it could be for their souls and their lives. The Pesach “dayenu” is being distorted to the point where it’s cool just to be content and complacent. Which is why the world needs more Debbie Schlussel and less Barack Obama-Bieber.

For my father z”l and everyone in the tribes, Chag Pesach Kashrus Sameach.
