UPDATE: Obama Postal Service Embargo of Israel Continues Nationwide; Woman Couldn’t Send B-Day Card to Granddaughter; Schlussel on the Case

By Debbie Schlussel

Earlier today, I told you that U.S. Postal Services locations in the Detroit area were refusing to deliver mail to Israel. I thought the problem had been fixed. But apparently the problem persists and is nationwide, as I had earlier diagnosed, now in New Jersey. I just received this e-mail message from a woman who was refused service when she wanted to mail something to Israel:



Date: Fri, Aug 1, 2014 at 5:27 PM
Subject: No postal service to Israel

I tried to send a birthday card to my granddaughter in Israel today and the post office refused to accept the letter. What steps can I take to notify the public about this outrageous but subtle form of anti-semitism this administration partakes in.
I live in Springfield NJ.

I look forward to you comments.

After receiving this e-mail message, I contacted the U.S. Postal Service public relations in Washington, DC, but I could not get anyone on the phone. So, I called the cell phone of Elizabeth Najduch, Communications Program Specialist for the Detroit District of the U.S. Postal Service. As I noted earlier today, I spoke with her yesterday about the same problem in Michigan, and she is very professional and serious about getting this problem fixed. Ms. Najduch said she will alert the national people in the U.S. Postal Service, as I informed her that it appears this problem persists and is nationwide, even though it has been corrected in Detroit. She also told me that the Postal Service was never supposed to reject letters to Israel in the first place, only packages, and that that policy was only supposed to last as long as the FAA policy against flights landing in Israel, which ended well over a week ago.

If you try to mail a letter or package (or anything else) to Israel via the U.S. Postal Service and are refused service, please contact me so that we can get this ridiculous problem fixed.

Yes, they are quick to damage Israel, and very, very slow to fix the damage.

The US Postal Service is supposed to be an independent federal company.

If it persists in this illegal conduct, you may need to file a class action lawsuit.

Debbie, federal agencies are forbidden in engaging in discrimination on national origin grounds. This needs to stop, period.

Glad to see you’re on top of the case and do keep us appraised of future developments.

The Imposter-in chief has quarantined Israel.
Has Mossad crossed the southern border yet ?

The government of Chile has cut off trade negotiations with Israel over the Gaza Strip bombings. They threw the Izahell ambassador out of the country too. Cutting off all trade with them, denying them mails service and refusing to let Izrahell citizens from entering the country of Chile are hopefully the next step. Izrahell is a rogue state filled with WAR CRIMINALS. They need to be politically and morally isolated from the rest of humanity, like a pernicious cancer.

    Tell us, Brian the brainless, was your father or grandfather a Nazi who left Germany at the end of the war and ended up in South America? Or are you just another worthless Arab shit who stinks up whatever country he is in? Or, are you just mad that teeny tiny Israel, a fraction of the size of Chile, outproduces Chile in most areas, particularly in the scientific, medical, electronic, physics, and mechanical areas. After all, when was the last time Chile was known for its scientific achievements? In fact, what achievements has Chile had besides going from a communist government elected dictatorship to a military dictatorship? For all of the geographical benefits of Chile, it is still a worthless place to live.

    Now, go back to humping your mother.

      Hey Jonathan E. Grant, I was going to give that Brian jackass a piece of my own mind and a little historical lesson about the Middle East, but you saved me PLENTY of time to respond to Brian and saved me a lot of energy as well.

      And Brian, if you were anymore intelligent (which I highly doubt) and quit being acquitted and adjacent to propaganda crap, you would’ve known that in history, that area which is known as modern day Israel was an antiquity of a region before the Roman Empire changed the name to “Palestine” (and whilst you’re at it, British Mandate Palestine consisted of Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria, so are the Lebanese, Syrians and Jordanian occupying Palestinian and Arab land?).

      Also Brian, in the Arabic dialect (Debbie speaks, reads and writes Arabic VERY fluently, she’s a tri-linguist), the letter “P” for the word Palestine (it’s a Latin word) isn’t pronounced, it’s silent, the word Palestine is pronounced with either the B or F word in Arabic, think about that!

      Brian is a Neo-Fascist with time on his hands.

      After Jordan, Israel & Syria, Chile has the world’s largest palestinian population. Chile’s days are numbered and its destruction can’t come fast enough!

      Cupcake on August 2, 2014 at 12:41 pm

    Hey, nice to know that all of the WWII Nazi war-criminals who fled to Chile & the other scumbag South-American cesspool nations — scattering about, like the little cowardly mice they always were — instead of being real men and women, and facing the music they composed for themselves — have been fruitful, and multiplied throughout the ensuing decades — ultimately, to produce the kind of fecal progeny such as you are. At least, now we have a good idea of where we next have to clean-up the human garbage. Hey, schmuck: if you hate the Jews so much, how come you’re not in uniform, and fighting for your anti-Semitic cause, over where the action REALLY is? Why are you hiding, nestled safety within the confines of Chilly, instead of on the front lines, where you could do so much more than just write bullshit on the Internet? Is it because you — like all Nazis — are a coward?

    Chile was better under Pinochet.

Mr. Grant hits a grand slam with his post, especially that first sentence. I agree.

And I would like to add that being an Aryan looking Puerto Rican Jew has afforded me the opportunity to hear a lot of stuff in my life, that wouldn’t get said in front of a lot of others. Being so in between that a lot of people can’t figure me out ethnically has led to people speaking very honestly around me.

There is indeed a burgeoning anti-Jewish sentiment throughout the world, after a two decade lull following WWII. But since the 60’s, first with a whisper, but increasing furor, now reaching near fever pitch, it is a roar. The roar is reaching crescendo proportions, and the tune is “kill the Jews.”

I am referring to cultural influence, not any events that may have been perpetrated against Israel or Jews around the world from 1945-67. I’m talking about noticing it in the culture, and feeling the sentiment in the news.

I tell all the trolls from the Halal Peanut Brigade who come here, all three of you, or all 1,779 of you. You cannot break the regular members or many others throughout the land who know the truth. The mainstream media won’t broadcast it, but major talk radio is saying it loud and clear, with Rush and Mark Levin pounding it almost daily, perhaps others, but the jig is up.

Everyone knows that the whole world is closing in, like a noose. The world is closing in on Israel, and anyone else who gives aid and comfort to the Joooooooos. No matter what you do now, we know you, in all your disguises, so don’t give us the thinly veiled rhetoric. Okay, maybe you get to turn us in to lampshades one more time. But one day, God will come, . . .

and wipe away every tear. And wipe you all away forever, you who stand by The R(eligion) O(f) S(atan).

I can only add one thing to what Mr. Grant said. It is a positive. Great fruit comes from Chile. They’re doing something right. The pears you order from Harry and David come from Chile. Lots of great fruit at local stores comes from Chile. It’s not all bad, LOL!!!

An FYI…wasn’t sure where to put it. Natalie Portman helps purchase bulletproof vests for Israeli army.

Laura S. on August 1, 2014 at 11:41 pm

My bad.. Portman spoke on Israel (clickable link on the site)… Mayim Bialik helped purchase the vests.

Laura S. on August 1, 2014 at 11:45 pm

Debbie, I read your first article on this earlier today on another thread, and BTW, you’re doing a good to excellent job at exposing this rubbish of US Postal Service refusing to let US mail being transferred to Israel, etc.

My sixth sense tells me that more than likely, Arab and Muslim pressure groups in this country have pressured the White House and the USPS of preventing mail going towards Israel’s Postal Service’s? There’s gotta be a logical explanation to this, this couldn’t have just occurred out of thin-air with no explanations to it!

Sean R. on August 1, 2014 at 11:56 pm

A great deal of what has been said here rests on the unwarranted presumption that islam and its slaves are part of humanity. Anyone who wants to assert that must show proof. Its presumption is unwarranted and of no validity without proof.

X many days until full dictatorship?
It starts with a trickle then BAM Obama 3,4,5th “term in office”

Canadian Steve on August 2, 2014 at 12:40 pm

    There won’t be a 3rd, 4th, etc term.
    There will not a 2016 etc. election.

    eppy on August 2, 2014 at 2:15 pm

    I don’t think obama will give up power voluntarily-he’ll have to be assassinated like all the third world dictators.

There’s no reason to use snail mail for birthday cards and letters. This is 2014. Send E-cards free and write an email if you want to write a letter. I haven’t put a stamp on either in years. Someone sent us a check and I had to send it back to my bank in the US just before the war started but other than that, there’s the Internet, FAX if you need a paper trail, although you CAN print emails and FedEx, DHL and UPS. which all come here. BTW Israel post offices send and received FAXes if necessary. As for gifts, just send money via Paypal. It the cheapest way to do so both in fees and exchange rate.

M: HUH? She can send a birthday card in whatever way she wants. That’s not the issue here. The issue is that they refused to mail her birthday card to Israel. PERIOD. Stop making excuses for the USPS and attacking the victims. DS

In my educated opinion, the US Department of State is behind the recent FAA actions and the US Postal Service. The FAA and the US Postal service employees don’t set any policy on such foreign affairs matters. But the State Department does. This wing of the US Government has historically been headed by anti-Semites. Thus, if an American citizen was born in Jerusalem, the State Department prevents that citizen from identifying the birthplace as Jerusalem, Israel, as the State Department refuses to recognize Jerusalem is belonging to Israel.

Contrary to the popular opinion that government is inherently inefficient and ineffective, the US State Department is extraordinarily efficient, effective, and fast to boot–but only in carrying out THEIR agenda. Though Obama undoubtedly fully agrees with the anti-Semitic actions of the State Department, it would be giving far too much credit to Obama and his drones to attribute such actions to his administration. Yes, Obama is behind the $47 million love-gift of your money to the Hamas terrorists, but the FAA and Postal Service moves sound like the actions of a higher and more entrenched authority.

Sent about four wedding invitations via air mail to Israel last week. So far, none have been returned to sender, but that can take two weeks or more. I will post again if any come back undeliverable.

phillip slepian on August 4, 2014 at 12:36 pm

Here in St Louis, Missouri, Clayton post office, they would not accept ANY letters or packages to Israel. Today is 8-4-14 I wanted to send a bunch if things to my nieces and nephews there. I asked if they took packages to Syria. The teller asked if that was close to Israel (I think she meant is Syria IN Israel) and said that if it is, she couldn’t take it. She said “that’s what I was told”.

If this is ture, call your Congressmen and Senators.

Republicans will be especially eager to publicize and correct another failure of America under Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

F U Mohammed on August 5, 2014 at 11:27 am

I am really not trying to be disrespectful but can’t help but comment on the obvious bad domestic policy and horrible foreign policy. I think our president seems to prefer punishing our allies who disagree with his warped view he seems more aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood than with the average American citizen. I find it very interesting that he had the sanctions lifted against Sudan while they are still on the list of state sponsors of terror and people wonder why radical Islam is spreading through parts of Africa? It just seems like our president seems to drag his feet when it comes to dealing with those who support or engage in terror while at the same time opt in favor of go after those who fight against it. It feels like for the last eight years we have had a warped Gomer Pyle as president.
