Confessions of A Jew




The following was written & recited by Ben Stein  CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

My confession:


I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are, Christmas trees.


It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me... I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu . If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.


I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.


Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.


In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking.


Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her 'How could God let something like this happen?' (regarding Hurricane Katrina). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, 'I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?'


In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.


Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem. We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said okay. (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide)


Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.


Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing yet?


Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.


Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.


Pass it on if you think it has merit.

If not, then just discard it... no one will know you did.. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in. 


My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully,


Ben Stein

Jewish Blogger Who Loves Obama Rewrites Indonesia's History

Dov Ber, the blogger, whose love of our President supersedes his love of his own people, rewrites the History of  anti Jewish and anti Christian Indonesia...

Now read the truth


 From an article in Haaretz

The Lilipution Dov Ber totally ignores the fact that Obama is a Muslim sympathizer.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/2008/09/fitzgerald-how-the-islamic-world-views-obama.html
 DB's vision is clouded even when he sees  Hussain Obama look the other way as Iran rushes toward its goal of having nuclear missiles, while coming down hard on Israel for developing real estate in its own capital city, Jerusalem.

 DB totally dismisses the fact that Obama rudely dismissed the Israeli Prime Minister during the latter's first meeting in the US,

while he (Obama) nods his approval through silence when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatens to drive Israel into the sea, and continues to hold up shipments of bunker buster bombs to Israel.
http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/03/obama-continues-attack-on-israel-blocks-delivery-of-bunker-busters-to-israeli-military.html

DB totally ignores Hussain Obama's deep and visceral mistrust, not to say an outright hatred of Israel and the freedom it represents.

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/world/us/Obama-leads-world-chorus-against-Israel-plan-for-Jerusalem/articleshow/6898076.cms

Hussain Obama's  long associations with such radical anti-American groups as ACORN and the New Black Panther Party reinforce that mistrust,
http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/friends-high-places
and it is becoming institutionalized in the policies and legislative initiatives currently being pursued and enacted in the Obama administration.
http://mediamatters.org/mmtv/201004140078

DB is blind to the fact that we have elected a man that conspicuously bows to Islamic leaders and apologizes to Muslims for America's bad behavior.

Dov Ber's followers also know that DB bashes and actually hates President George Bush
(see DB"s latest rant ... http://dovbear.blogspot.com/2010/11/bushie-boys-book-huge-swaths-of-it.html )
But we all know that GWB was  the best friend in the White House that Israel ever had.
