I saw Slim quite a few times in the 1980s, when he was performing at a hotel lounge in Portland, OR. He loved to sing songs about food! A song on one of his albums I have is Matzoh Balls (“matzoh balls-oroonie, gefilte fish-ovouti!”); he also sings about grape leaves, and has a song called “Avocado Seed Soup Symphony.” He was fabulous.

Mustap,

Thanks. IMHO, we jews have more to be concerned with from anti-semitic groups in the West than anything from the arab world.

During last night’s passover, we recited the story of our exodus from Egypt. Whether one believes this is a fable or actual history, it doesn’t matter, because jews, throughout time, have passed through difficult times and good times. Passover seders are supposed to be joyous, but they are mixed with trepidation and question. The purpose of the seder is to ask questions and to promote discussion. G-d freed us from oppression well over 2000 years ago. How are the jews and Palestinians different or the same? Jews, for example, wanted to leave Egypt for their “promised land”, the land of their fore-fathers. They never claimed part of Egypt as their own. Palestinians do not want to leave Palestine, and so forth.

World uncertainty and bad economies always seem to get the juices flowing in an anti-semite. This hateful kook winded-up killing 3 gentiles: a older woman, a kid and a grandfather. How can he live with himself? What brought him to do such a cowardly act? I have been reading a few of these websites, and I am amazed at the level of hate, which we all know, takes a lot of energy. Whereas a shift or break has occurred in the arab world due to the Syrian melt-down, this has done nothing to deter anti-semites in the West. When you ask an anti-semite why they spend so much of their energy on Israel and the Palestinians and NOT on Syria of Egypt, they have no logical answer. It’s all a “false-flag”, “psy-op” or “Mossad/CIA plan”.

I have no desire to discuss Obama. Obama is like a festering sore on your body that won’t go away. It requires the expertise of a doctor, and that doctor isn’t available until the next election. Hopefully, the US can wait it out until that time. In any case, we will not be a healthy nation then.

Regards,

AP
