No, the president of Poland didn't say that Jews cause anti-Semitism
[PJ Media] In late June of 1941, my father's first cousins Moshe and Dvora fled their house in the tiny town of Kameny Most, about halfway between Slonim and Baranavichy in what is now Belorus. Hitler had launched Operation Barbarossa days before, and their home stood almost on the German-Soviet line that had divided Poland in 1939. Now the Germans had marched into town. The boy and girl, then 15 and 16, reached the woods behind their house before the Germans arrived. Their parents and baby brother fled a minute later, but the Germans already were there. They couldn't reach the woods and hid in the tall grass. A Polish neighbor pointed them out to the Germans, who shot them on the spot. Moshe and Dvora joined the partisan brigade led by the Bielski brothers, made famous in the film Defiance. Not long afterwards they returned at night, barricaded the neighbor in his house, set it afire and burned him alive. By the grace of God the teenagers survived the war and came to the new State Israel and started large and flourishing families. I had the merit to arrive at Dvora's deathbed in 2004 just in time to receive her blessing upon the American branch of her family.

I tell this story to make it clear that my family isn't soft on Polish anti-Semitism.

Anti-Semitism is a matter of the most profound importance, and Polish anti-Semitism is something I take personally. That is why it is especially irresponsible to accuse Poles of anti-Semitism falsely, as the Jewish Insider website yesterday accused Polish President Andrzej Duda. According to the website, President Duda told a group of Jewish community leaders assembled at the Polish Consulte in New York that hostile remarks by an Israeli cabinet minister about Polish anti-Semitism "were a 'humiliation' and were the reason for an increase in antisemitic attacks against Jews in Poland." It is wrong to cry wolf under any circumstances, and reckless to cry wolf where real wolves might turn up.

President Duda never said it. I know he never said it because I was at the meeting. For an accurate account, see Rabbi Shmuley Boteach's note in the Jerusalem Post.

Olde Tyme Religion
End the Children's Climate Crusade
    "Climate guru Petteri Taalas: 'Climate change is not yet out of control, but the debate is ‐ It has the features of a religious extremism.'"

[PJMedia] So read the English translation of the headline of a September 6 news report in Finland’s financial newspaper Talouselämä (The Journal) citing an interview with Taalas, a PhD in meteorology and secretary-general of the World Meteorological Organization.

Perhaps nothing better illustrates the validity of Taalas’s concern than the use of children to promote the worldwide climate delusion, a scare for which there exists not a shred of physical evidence. Sixteen-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg is a case in point.

After crossing the Atlantic in what she incorrectly dubbed a zero-carbon yacht to address the recent UN climate summit, her actions mobilized millions of climate change demonstrators, many of them children, in more than 100 countries to join protests. In an angry speech at the UN, Thunberg told world leaders that they had "stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words...You are not mature enough to tell it like it is. You are failing us."

#1  If rationality held sway, we would not be talking about messianic children, modern monetary theory, globalism or borderless states. We would not be talking about making math "feel good" or about making illiterates feel good about their contributions to the space program. We would not be listening to Jenny McCarthy's babble against vaccines. We would not be talking about anything that is not immediately relevant to acceptable results in governance, science and individual freedom. But that would leave way too many on the outside they have chosen, not looking in, but looking for the next unicorn or false religion to embrace.

#2  Greenism is a religion, you cannot argue against it rationally.

Posted by: Bright Pebbles || 09/28/2019 7:26 Comments || Top||

#3  It has been speculated that "Greenism" is an effort to replace Christianity so they left can conduct goat molesting, mule sniffing, and baby raping without criticism.

#4  #1 On the other hand, MM, If rationality held sway we'd probably just lay down and die because life has no rational purpose. And don't mention religion because belief is irrational.

#6  Chris - she's mentally challenged and scared out of what passes for her wits by her feckless parents. She's been lied to her whole life by the people she trusts the most. Blame the bastard parents.

#7  I'm serious, someone should have reported her and her parents to CPS.

#8  #5, #6 Anybody her age who feels entitled, indeed obliged, to lecture grown ups - who know and understand a lot more that she does, should get a leather strap applied to her tush.

#10  Hogg will have his Hahvahd history or political science or "government policy" degree and there will be an Ivy bidding war for Greta (while Felicity Huffman mutters WFT?). As long as the left sees taxes, taxes everywhere, a good 99% tax on endowments is a great place for the GOP to go for starters.

#11  The original children's crusade ended with most of them being sold into slavery.

Just sayin'.

#6 While I've no doubt she's being guided, she knows what she's doing and revels in the attention and power it gives her.

The worst thing the rest of us could do is give her endless slack because she's "just a child".

She wants the power of an adult? Fine, then be prepared to held as accountable as an adult would be (ideally).

The Right will never win if we constantly insist on white knighting for those who are trying to destroy us.

#12  Warthog, I know she has autism. Don't care. I know the parents are too blame too. don't care. I'm an equal oppurtunity hater.

#14  To sea went a brave little sailor
Who railed at the gales with a hailer.
She sounded so addled,
Cetaceans skedaddled,
A-blubber: "The tales of that wailer!"
