July 3rd, 2015 by Gail Winston

[Has it really been a year? Or did I count wrong. We don’t seem to be through with though. Just ask the UN. Yuck.]

Dear Family & Friends,

Today is an Emet (2-Truth) & Arlene (4-Kushner) presentation, plus one Citizen Warrior. I have another blockbuster but, we must keep up with the news so the biggie will wait until next week.

Today is the Eve of Shabbat & of the Fourth of July (America’s Big Birthday) tomorrow. The Fourth was celebrated early in Israel this week because it arrives on Shabbat & people who want to celebrate the Fourth needed their wheels to get there. So, we had July 2nd & 3rd for fun.

The weather is cool & lovely. Come on over & enjoy.

Have a wonderful Shabbat Eve & Day. Hopefully see you Moetzi Shabbat (Saturday Night).

All the very best, Gail/Geula/Savta/Savta Raba x 2/Mom

Dear Family & Friends,

A brave whistleblower is being slammed! That’s the prime media word of the decade: Slammed! It is rude, crude, strong, & usually true. Usually only the ‘good’ get slammed. So…Four prime examples of good whistleblowers who acted according to their consciences about dangerous events or people & got viciously ‘slammed’ are Jonathan Pollard, Edward Snowden, Geert Wilders & Pamela Geller. (There are many others but you can fill in the blanks.)

Michael Oren was a stalwart Israeli Ambassador to America from July 20, 2009 to September 30, 2013. He was chosen for his expertise on American diplomatic history regarding Israel. He has withstood the “slings & arrows” of anti-Israelism with strength. Now he is publishing a book about his relationships with the American Administration during a tumultuous 6 years. He brought it to fruition early because it has much to say about ongoing negotiations with Iran’s Monstrous-Nuclear- Ambitions just as agreements are supposed to be signed releasing Iran’s sanctioned Billions of dollars for Iran’s ‘promise’ NOT to cooperate with the Western World monitoring & controlling its Nuclear juggernaut.

Oren’s book & his several recent articles in major media outlets have been vigorously ‘Slammed’ for his powerful critique about (i.e. bad-mouthing) President Obama especially. Somehow, we’re not supposed to... Read More

Dear Family & Friends,

More commentary rolls in praising Michael Oren, the historian who deals with reality & his revealing, exposé of life as an honest diplomat in Washington under the Barack Obama administration. Even those who disagree with Oren’s political point of view approve of his guts, his fairness, his comprehensive, candid grasp of Israel’s historical necessity to live free in our sovereign land.

Another large document awaits my attention for you all to see but, the news of the last 3 days needs to be reported & analyzed. Hopefully, the large document will appear tomorrow.

Have a good night. It’s nicely cool & breezy with a huge full moon. Enjoy a good day.

All the very best, Gail/Geula/Savta/Savta Raba x 2/Mom

From the Mind of Sha’i ben-Tekoa

Webcast Transcript:

Date: June 25, 2015

Parasha: Khukas / חוקת

Title: Bravo, Michael Oren

Copyright Sha’i ben-Tekoa 2014

Shalom laYehudim, Shalom laBnai Noach, Shalom laGoyim. It’s the evening of the 6th day, tes beTammuz, tav-shin-ayin-heh, Parashas Khukas, the evening of the 5th day, Thursday, 25 June 2015, webcasting from the Land of Israel, land of truth that liars can’t stand.

Well, in a follow-up to the last webcast and this week’s UNHRC so-called report, more has come out, thanks to Anne Bayefsky, on this Mary McGowan Davis woman. It seems she had previously chaired a committee for this Spanish Inquisition-like council passing judgment on Jews in the 2008-2009 Israeli strike into Gaza. They issued a report March 2011 ruling that “Israel’s legal system did not meet standards of independence or impartiality or make accountability possible.” In this same report issued in March 2011, she also judged Israel’s principle...

Dear Family & Friends,

Traveling deletes work time. Sorry about the missing days.

Today before Shabbat much urgent news – several should be first, so I highlighted with yellow those that should be first.

#5 International Farhud Day strikes a deep chord for me. I started M.E.I.R., Mid East Information Resource after the vote in the UN that Zionism is Racism. M.E.I.R was & is a Jewish Speakers’ Bureau to fight Arab Propaganda. In re-reading my newsletters from 1976 onward, I’m struck by the fact that I started the Jewish practice of Media Monitoring. I had organized series of seminars taught by professionals who volunteered to train u.

I learned & then taught the deep history of our Jews from Arab Countries.

Joan Peters, z’l, gave me the 16 mm film: “The Dhimmi: To Be A Jew in Arab Lands”, created by WOJAC, World Organization for Jews in Arab Countries, which showed one of the very few documented histories of our past generations living in the Muslim Arab world. I carried that film, a 16 mm projector, movie screen & lots of documentary papers plus applications for AIPAC, subscriptions to the Jerusalem Post; Save Soviet Jewry letters, etc.

We learned & were taught by a Persian Jew that we... Read More

June 22nd, 2015 by Gail Winston

Dear Family & Friends,

I return home tomorrow from my “old country”. I tell people who ask me “but, isn’t Israel dangerous?” that America is too. We have crazy, lone wolfs attacking innocent people here. Remember that these killers are not really ‘lone’ wolfs – in whatever country they rise up to kill either us or “the Other Other”. They are always molded by the society in which they live.

I was glad to see David Bedein defend Michael Oren’s well-earned opinions from his close contact & intimate observance of POTUS…(President Of The United States). Oren is truly brave to expose & reveal the true nature of America’s President in his final months controlling our group’s destinies. I’m sure Oren realistically assessed the potential criticism he’d face for ‘daring’ to criticize “He Who Should Not Be Named” as being in control of our lives (for ill or good).

On that note, I’ll click in my TOC ( Table Of Contents) & say good night.

But, first a warm nod & hug to the “Orange” among us. It’s been 10 years but, you should remember the trauma caused by one of Manny & my favorite heroes who won the Yom Kippur War when he abandoned & evacuated 21 communities from Gush Katif plus 4 from... Read More

Dear Family & Friends,

Beware! Ramadan is on! It seems to loosen any possible inhibitions to murder & mayhem by Arab Muslims – whether in Israel or the wide-world.

Enjoy your night & day but, Be Alert!

Dear Family & Friends,

Traveling is not necessarily conducive to smooth GW Diary ‘sends’. But, I’ll do it anyway because life goes on. I’m working on a old, balky netbook but, it’s not so bad.

Note #1: Israel’s Report on the Gaza War & #2: Hamas War Crimes ….these are only small examples why I’m still sending it out under that title. #3 Michael Oren really skewers Potus. #s 4&5 bring warm feelings of Jewish & Israeli pride from the Kirk/Michael & Dylan Douglas family. Now you have to read the rest – it is all interesting. Trust me on this.

Have a peaceful night, a sweet day & a great tomorrow. All the very best,

Dear Family & Friends,

I’m at home in a far-off land. The news swirls around. The incoming on the Internet is more sure-footed than the New York Times. I send you 9 mind-stretching missives. Enjoy.

Have a wonderful Chodosh Tov Tammuz – the new Jewish month – to be celebrated. Night should be peaceful; day must be joyous; your work will be fulfilling – are my prayers for you.
