SORT BY Relevancy
I was born in Haifa, Palestine, in November 1936. Palestine then was a British Mandate. In 1933 my parents got married and immediately emigrated to Palestine. They both were Jewish and very idealistic and part of a Zionistic movement. My father has been a busdriver and musician in the Palestine Philharmonic Orchestra. In 1939 my parents decided to travel – by boat – to the Netherlands to show me to the family. I was 2 ½ years old and I don’t have any memories of Palestine. We have been 8 weeks on a boat. In February 1940 my brother Ruben has been born in Rotterdam; we were living near to our family. The next very dramatic happening in my life was the German bombardment of the city of Rotterdam. For the whole of the Netherlands the real beginning of the Second World War. This I can remember very well. I was completely hysterical. We had to leave Rotterdam and found a short shelter with friends in the center of the country. I remember almost permanently sitting under the table, refusing to eat, being terribly frightened. Then the organization of the Resistance found us a house in Bennekom near the rest of our family in a village were a lot of Jews were accepted to live temporarily. One of my last nice memories before hiding was the visit of my grandmother, arriving in a coach with horses, celebrating our half a year birthday. (I have been born on the birthday of my grandmother). That was the last time I ever saw her and I deeply loved her. After the war my parents found out that she was gassed in concentration camp Auschwitz (15 oktober 1942, 61 years old). About two months later my mother told me that my brother and I were going to stay with a very nice aunt for a while – no, and I didn’t know her. No, we could not take any toys with us.

There have been over 2,000 nuclear weapon tests in the world, almost half by the U.S. Millions of people have been exposed to radiation from these tests, and countless more still live in radiation contaminated areas. This is true for all nuclear powers, but especially the U.S. and the territories of the former Soviet Union. Virtually nothing has been done to compensate these people, or to remediate their land.
In Japan, virtually everything that the government of Japan (GOJ) and TEPCO are saying about Fukishima they know to be lies, and that their purpose is to manage public perceptions to minimize liability. The history of radiological contamination provides information about what is ahead for Fukushima, and that this history is being deliberately ignored.

Tonight is a very special tribute to the allied soldiers who liberated the concentration camp at Auschwitz and the inmates who survived the torture inflicted by the German soldiers. We urge you to check out the graphic pictures that need no explanayion or description, but they are not pictures of Auschwitz, but Staninlawow, Poliand, the unheard of story. This is a very personal broadcast for The Rebellious Rev, as his mother was one of the few survivors of Staninlawow. He will tell her story and how her life was changed forever by the affects of the war. We urge any of our listeners who have or had parents who are survivors to please call us at 646-595-3275 and share your story!!!

I’ve met so many people who think Leaders are born or they need to have a title or a position. I don’t buy that idea.
Leadership is shown by your actions and not your words.
Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) – Galileo was willing to challenge the orthodoxy of the church through his own scientific discoveries. This commitment to truth and science came despite personal threats to his well-being.
Witold Pilecki (1901 – 1948) During WW2 Pilecki joined the underground Polish resistance. In 1943, he volunteered to smuggle himself into Auschwitz concentration camp so he could report on the holocaust to the allies. He then escaped Auschwitz and took part in the Warsaw uprising of 1944. In 1948, he was executed by the Stalinist secret police for retaining loyalty to the non-Communist Polish government.
I cannot get my head around this method that God chooses.
The older I get the more I realize more people watch your life than you can imagine.
“One of the hardest places, in leadership, is what you DO with what you KNOW when you THINK what you KNOW isn’t WORKING. What you DO, when you’re DOWN, can determine the OUTCOME!” Me
Repeating - The older I get the more I realize more people watch your life than you can imagine.
Job made a choice that I really don’t know if I could have made…22 Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.
Leadership is standing when you feel like falling on your face in anguish and staying there.
Leadership is NOT a title.
Leadership is about influencing others in your life with your words, habits and actions.
“Leadership is an action, not a position.” ~ Donald McGannon
