Happy Pesach!

As we prepare to celebrate Passover this week we remember that we were once slaves in Egypt and as Jews can never take our freedom for granted.  Our people fled Egypt en masse into the unknown, only for the hope of freedom.  Our Egyptian foes wasted no time pursuing us, but as the story goes, they were swept into the sea as the Jews continued towards their eternal quest for liberty and independence.  For thousands of years following our exodus from Egypt the children of Israel have faced countless enemies who have subjugated us in an attempt to eventually completely wipe us out; from the blood libels and pogroms in Europe, to the atrocities of the Holocaust during World War II, to the modern day Islamic extremists.
As we gather round for the Passover seder, let us not forget that no people, but especially the Jews, can ever take freedom for granted.  It is a fragile privilege, hard won by the courageous throughout the generations, that can be just as easily lost if we get overly complacent.  Yet complacency is what has permeated American Jews today, as the vast majority of them support the Obama administration and choose to disregard its anti-Israeli principles.  Judging by the repeated cycles of history, we are voluntarily subjecting ourselves to yet another period of servility, this time to the radical Islamists, who must feel awfully cozy under Obama’s protective wing.

About BlazeOfTruth

I am a Jewish immigrant from the former Soviet Union, a US Army veteran, and most importantly, a mom. While I never had much interest in politics I cannot, in good conscience, sit back and watch what is happening to our country. I love this America that was only a dream in my youth. It must remain the "Shining City on a Hill." Importantly, the current administration is mistreating our ally, Israel. Therefore, I have started this blog to show all the facts proving that the current administration is no friend to Israel and no friend to freedom!
