CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
Segment 1: The secular Mitzrayim: What is the secular Mitzrayim? Mitzrayim is the Hebrew word for Egypt. In the Torah, Hashem commands Bnai Yisrael to not return to Egypt, the land where they were enslaved for 400 years. But why Egypt in particular? The Jewish people dealt with anti-Semitism all over the world. The Holocaust, which took the lives of 6,000,000 Jews, took place, not in Egypt; but in Germany and other places in Europe. So why Egypt? As I explained in previous shows, Egypt is the spiritual state of slavery and away from G-dliness, Torah, and Mitzvot. And the most blantant example of such a state is the essense of Amalek, through secular society, getting the Jew away from Shabbat observance. The common argument is that the demands of his/her job or of [secular Gentile] society at large keeps him/her from Shabbat observance. And with the Shmitta [Sabbatical] year just around the corner [starting at Rosh Hashanah], we can see this Amalekite attempt to enslave Eretz Yisrael with the claim that the demands of secular society stops the Jew from letting the land rest. But this secularist way of thinking, which comes from the essense of Amalek [as I'll explain on this show], goes against the very essense of Judaism, Torah and of Hashem's message. For the purpose of this type of rest is to acknowledge G-d as the ultimate sovereign, even more so than man; for man is only the sovergn over Hashem's creation because Hashem decreed it to be that way.
Segment 2: Israel & Gaza: Clearly, the world is starting to figure out what Hamas is about. Despite decades of lies from Hamas, other Jihadists, and the Pallywood propaganda machine, with the notorious far leftist rhetoric shielding their propaganda claim with slogans about humananitarian aid and "occupation," the media has started showing video footage of Hamas launching rockets from civilian areas. Will the world get some sense? Probably not much.
Jim will discuss the current war, rebuilding of Gaza and Israel information.

Because the roots of the Christian faith are steeped in Judaism, Bible-believing Christians have always felt an affinity for Israel and the Israeli people. Our Savior came as a descendant of Jews with a message that was first for the Jews and then the Gentiles. The majority of Christians support the right of the Jewish people to have a state of their own and to live in peace like all democratic nations.
When situations such as the current conflict in Israel and Gaza take place, many Christians are unsure of how to respond. While we support Israel's right to defend itself against a terrorist organization launching rockets into its territory, no one likes to hear that over 800 civilians have been killed and over 5,000 people have been wounded -- especially children.
One response is to lay the blame on Israel as the militarily superior nation and side with the Palestinians as those who are less fortunate in this situation. In recent months, some Christian denominations have decided to engage in boycotts, divestments, and sanctions against companies which they say harm Palestinians. For example, last month, the Presbyterian Church decided to pull its investments from three U.S. companies that do business with Israel. The church claims that Caterpillar supplies products to Israel that are used to destroy Palestinian homes, Hewlett-Packard provides logistics and technology to help enforce the naval blockade of Gaza, and Motorola Solutions provides military and surveillance systems in illegal Israeli settlements...
The Conflict Information Consortium has a primary focus on complex, society-wide intractable conflict. It has pioneered efforts to use information technologies to provide people from all walks of life with the information that they need in order to deal with these incredibly difficult conflicts more constructively. The Consortium sees such efforts to enhance and mobilize the skills of the general population as critical to efforts to deal with these complex, society-wide conflicts.

Obama says he will not meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in March because his trip to Washington comes too close to Israel's upcoming elections.
"I'm declining to meet with him simply because our general policy is, we don't meet with any world leader two weeks before their election,"

Israel takes a unique and strange place in history. Boehner invites an American Ally to speak to Congress, and my facebook page lights up with calls of treason. There is no other nation on the planet that could cause such a rise.
Arabs comprise 20% of Israeli society. They have equal rights, the vote, are treated (often for free) in hospitals, and attend schools and Universities. In the Palestinian Authority controlled towns in the West Bank, there is indeed apartheid. Jews are not allowed or safe. Jews can't use transportation, won't be treated in hospitals etc. There are billboards exhorting people to run over Jews with their cars. Somewhere there is a cognitive disconnect. Too many American liberals believe the Jew hating lies, and ignore the Arab campaign to wipe Israel off the map.
Are there problems in the West Bank and Gaza? You bet there are. Egypt and Jordan made peace with Israel with the proviso that they keep the Palestinian Arabs out of Egypt and Jordan. This was done to hurt the Arabs and Israel, both. Egypt and Jordan both have majority populations related to the Arabs living in Gaza and the West Bank. Both are governed by minorities. The PLO was formed by Arafat to fight King Hussein in Jordan. Hussein killed hundreds of thousands of Palestinian Arabs. The Arabs made this problem happen and need to be involved in a solution to it. Land for peace is a ruse. The Palestinian Authority was offered 93% of the land they demand, and refused to take the deal. What they really want is all the land. Why is Israel so profoundly misunderstood?

MANY today say they are ISRAEL, ready to go forth to conquer the world! The truth however is that our people are divided, NOT wholly functioning a one in the true Spirit of the Most High YAH! What today remains of ISRAEL like the NATIONS have no power of themselves to collectively deliver self from the ENEMY WITHIN! (Ephesians 2-4) They who comfort our people in VANITY, they are all TREACHEROUS against the PEACE of YAH! Where then is a righteous one that YAH should exalt Him?
Zep 3:13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid. (Rev. ch.7, 14)
Isa 1:9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. 1:10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
Isa 44:20 Their imagination is dull; they are surely gone astray, and cannot deliver themselves, nor say, Our right hand has wrought falsehood. 21 Remember these things, O Jacob and Israel, for you are My servant; I have formed you; you are My servant; O Israel, from henceforth forget me not.
Isa 11:16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of HIS people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.
This weeks marks the Holocaust Remembrance for the Nation of Israel, who just a few short years ago, lost 6 million plus of its own people at the hands of the Nazi regime. Today, still attacked and oppressed, Israel stands as the only beacon of democracy in the Middle East and the single ally of the United States. Tonight Rabbi Hilbrant will discuss these matters and much more
Narrative mediation is a culturally focused practice that is based upon the notion that our lives are shaped by the stories that people tell about us and by the stories that we tell ourselves. The goal of the narrative mediator is to co-author stories that highlight strengths and competencies, rather than conflict. It helps people separate themselves from conflict-saturated stories and gives them the opportunity to re-author relationships in more peaceful, cooperative, and respectful ways. From this alternative position, the resolution of conflict can often happen much more smoothly and effectively than in traditional problem-solving approaches.
